Americans have endured a great deal of violence this week, and conservative protesters in New York City are standing up to shut it down.
Merely days ago, radical leftist James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on a baseball practice filled with republican congressmen, critically injuring representative Steve Scalise and wounding several others. In the aftermath of the heinous act, it was discovered that Hodgkinson was a member of several anti-conservative groups on social media, with many of the organizations calling for the masses to rise up and “destroy” President Trump and his followers.
Hodgkinson’s act was made possible, however, by a fervent campaign of desensitization on the left, in which Americans were forced to imagine the death of the President. There was Kathy Griffin’s tasteless beheading photo, a bevy of death threats against the Commander in Chief, and one play in New York City where Julius Caesar was replaced in his titular role by a facsimile of the President.
The latter depiction of the President’s death has received massive amounts of criticism, including, now, a legitimate attempt by sane and civil Americans to shut it down.
“Two protesters crashed Friday night’s production of Shakespeare in the Park Julius Caesar, which depicts the assassination and brutal stabbing of a stand-in for President Donald Trump.
“Laura Loomer, formerly of Project Veritas, rushed the stage shouting ‘Stop the normalization of political violence against the right! This is unacceptable!’ An announcer halted the production and boos from audience filled Central Park’s Delacorte Theater.
“Meanwhile, Jack Posobiec — who posted video footage of the protest on Twitter — began calling concertgoers Nazis and implied that performances of the play, which began in late May, were connected to leftist James T. Hodgkinson’s shooting attack on Republican lawmakers Wednesday, shouting: ‘The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!'”
The latest, violent developments in the war against American conservatives have many believing that we are entering a period of Civil War, given the repeated hate-filled actions being committed against the conservatives in American politics.
While these protesters will certainly be vilified by the mainstream media, they are truly to be lauded for their efforts to bring a sense of tact back to the political discussion. It may be too late to prevent the radical left from continuing their streak of violence, but it cannot hurt to try. These conservative rights activists knew that, and hopefully their actions can help install a sense of decorum back into U.S. politics.
