Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in a terrifying time in American history. The mainstream media is no longer afraid to call our situation a “Civil War”, and that, in and of itself, is telling.
The firs shots of this New Civil War were fired just over a year ago, after James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on a baseball field in Virginia, in an attempted assassination of the entire GOP charity hardball team. Hodgkinson was later found not only to have had a “kill list” in his pocket that completely verified the motivational assumptions of the internet’s free press.
In the year since, things have only gotten more dire. This summer, for instance, we’ve already seen some of the most heinous political grandstanding that we’ve witnessed in ages. Even more despicable is the fact that much of this flagrant newfound violence has been directed at the women of the Trump administration.
Today, we have yet another instance of the lunatic left working to intimidate and threaten the right side of American politics.
A Long Island man was arrested Friday for threatening to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin – then nearly hitting a Zeldin campaign staffer with his car, according to Suffolk County police. It was the latest in a string of attacks against the administration and its allies.
Martin Astrof, 75, of Nesconset, “became irate” at the Suffolk County campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin at 11:15 a.m. Friday, local police said.
He threatened to kill a campaign worker, as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters – then “backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the worker,” according to authorities.
With as many threats as the Secret Service has been dealing with in 2018, there is no surprise that our nation’s June job reports is looking so swell – we’re probably hiring a plethora of high level police to keep an eye on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
