Our nation is in a particularly frightening place, thanks to the unkempt violence of the radical left in this day and age.
Their rage against the President, for their variety of nonsensical reasons, has led us down a dark path. We’ve endured a number of violent events, all aimed at destroying the conservative American culture, or conservative Americans themselves, quite literally.
Just yesterday, in fact, a GOP candidate was nearly stabbed at a local fair appearance by a delusional citizen who did not agree with him politically. It was only by a the grace of the knife’s malfunction that he was spared.
And, how could anyone forget about the GOP baseball shooting, where Steve Scalise was nearly killed by a left-leaning former Bernie Sanders campaign worker who had attempted to assassinate the entire team?
Given the unrepentant evil of the liberal turn toward violence in recent months, it seems only fitting that Steve Scalise would become one of the cooler heads to prevail in Washington. After all, his brush with death remains the most poignant example of leftist violence to date.
In an op-ed for Fox News, Scalise penned the following:
No Americans should feel intimated or at risk of violence for speaking their mind, or even doing something as simple as sharing their political party affiliation.
After my own personal experience of a crazed gunman attempting to assassinate Republican members of Congress on a baseball field, I have become more vocal in calling out violence and threats against people in both parties.
Let me be clear: there is absolutely no place for violence or threats in our political discourse. We need a higher level of civility in our political debate. And it starts with us.
We are a country of diverse viewpoints and that is what makes America great. We are able to discuss those differences freely and resolve them at the ballot box. But no one has the right to harass, threaten, or incite violence against someone with different opinions or beliefs. That is, frankly, un-American and contrary to the very principles this country was founded upon.
Scalise’s timing couldn’t have been any more perfect.
Earlier in the day, it was revealed that democratic politicians were openly cheering the harassment of those who supported the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, often by sending vulgar and threatening props to their offices.
