(National Sentinel) Politics: When Tea Party activists showed up in droves to protest Obamacare before its passage in 2010, there were virtually no reports of violence and no threats of death against Democrats pushing the measure.
But the far-Left doesn’t play by the rules of civil society, so now that Republicans are attempting a partial roll-back of the most destructive public health care policy in the history of the country, threats of violence and even death against GOP lawmakers is rife.
As Breitbart News reports:
Republicans going home to talk to their constituents are facing violence and death threats, with some lawmakers upping security at town hall events — a consequence of a culture of violence being fostered by left-wing activists and their allies in the liberal media.
In the lead up to the passage of ObamaCare in 2010, conservatives were vocal at town halls and other forums in their opposition to the law. Yet, despite a great deal of speculation and fearmongering by the media, town hall events were almost entirely free of violence or threats of harm.
As the Democrats seek to mirror that opposition against President Trump and the Republican health care bill, the same commitment to non-violence is not there. Using similar tactics to “Antifa” activists opposing conservative speakers on college campuses, some anti-Trump activists are disrupting events and even resorting to threats and acts of violence.
Because, you see, in the age of President Donald J. Trump and Republican rule in Congress, the Left has decided for itself that is not a legitimate political construct and so they are not bound by the rules of civil society. After all, everybody knows Republicans want dirty air and water, want to starve children, jail gays and lesbians and reinstitute slavery, among other things.
None of that is even remotely true, let alone sane, and yet far too many Americans, blinded by their personal hatreds, do believe them.
The only way to push back against this kind of irrational hatred and violence is with strict enforcement of the law. Already there have been arrests of Left-wing idiots who have threatened GOP lawmakers in Arizona and Tennessee. Once found guilty, they need to have the proverbial book thrown at them as a message and warning to others that while political disagreement is fine and dandy, threatening someone’s life is not.
In case you were still wondering, the Marxist Democratic Party, with its incessant calls to “Resist” and get in the faces of conservatives and Trump supporters, has become America’s No. 1 hate group.
