In this week’s wretched tale of liberal lunacy, we will explore what could make an otherwise nonviolent and “tolerant” American resort to animal cruelty to make a political point.
I know that I probably sound like a broken record, especially when it comes to the overt radicalization of the liberal left. The reason that I can’t seem to shake the habit is because this is important. It may be even more important than any of us actually realize. Remember, the incremental, creeping insanity is the hardest to pinpoint, and the hardest to guard against.
Remember the old phrase, “first they came for the [whatever], and I said nothing”? That is precisely where we’re at with the liberal left. Only, in this case, first they came for our rights…which is usually much further down the list.
You see, the left has learned a horrid lesson in the last few years: Violence works, and they’ve been employing that from coast to coast. Obviously, the anti-First Amendment riots of Berkeley, California come to mind, but also the attempted assassination of a number of republican congressmen in Virginia last summer. Make no mistake about it: Both of these actions are radical, to say the least.
Now, in what could be construed as one of the most despicable and disgusting acts of “resistance” to date, the Department of Homeland Security has been dealing with a particularly nasty form of “protest”.
Department of Homeland Security employees are seeing violent threats with greater frequency because of the president’s immigration policy, according to an official with knowledge of a recent threat assessment.
The department determined that there was a “heightened threat against DHS employees” in response to recent government actions surrounding immigration, according to a letter sent to employees over the weekend.
“This assessment is based on specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees,” Claire Grady, acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security, wrote to employees on Saturday.
And where is this all headed in 2018?
Around two dozen threat reports were issued in the past few days, primarily against Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, according to the same official. Each of these reports is generally related to a specific online threat. All employees are personally contacted by DHS security if they are the target of a violent threat, the official said.
In one example, a senior DHS official living in the Washington. D.C. area found a burnt and decapitated animal on his front porch, according to an official with knowledge of the incident.
So, let’s just break this down for the folks at home really quickly: The left is mad that Trump is attempting to curb the influx of cartel crime in America, so they commit cartel-style murders on animals and then leave the bodies for DHS staffers to find?
To be fair, Jeffrey Dahmer had a reason for mutilating animals, too: It’s because he was a lunatic.
