FYI, The new normal: Threats of death/violence against GOP lawmakers


Hell unleashed on all non-Leftists
It appears as though verbal abuse, and/or violence is always just around the corner for many, no matter who they may be. Conservative speakers, writers, Trump supporters, Democrats who do not toe the party line, and now GOP politicians face death threats and bodily harm should they be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
And seditious Ole' George's servile MSM appears to be encouraging this Stalinist trend.
Can the American Republic be saved?

Thanks, liberal media: Republicans now face death threats from violent leftists
By Joe Newby -
May 22, 2017 On Sunday, Breitbart.com’s Adam Shaw reported that Republican members of Congress going home to speak with constituents are now facing violence and death threats from radical leftists, prompting some to increase security at town hall events as a consequence of what Shaw called a “culture of violence being fostered by left-wing activists and their allies in the liberal media.”

Shaw provided some examples:

A man was arrested last week for threatening Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) in voicemail messages, telling her that her days “were numbered” because of her support for the president. The Arizona Republic reported that her district is one of the most evenly divided in the nation, but the threats are especially disturbing as she represents the district represented by former Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011.

McSally faced one of the more extreme crowds at a town hall in February where she was heckled as activists carried signs saying, “Stop Trump’s crusade of hate” and “No! This fascist regime must be stopped before it starts.”

Some threats, allegedly from Steven Martan who was arrested by the FBI, say: “Martha our sights are set on you, right between your (expletive) eyes” and “Can’t wait to (expletive) pull the trigger (expletive),” according to the Republic.

Earlier this month, he noted, a crazed constituent tried to run Rep. David Kustoff, R-TN., off the road over his support of the Republican health care bill after an event. After she was arrested, liberal hatemongers hailed her as a folk hero.

Shaw says these are not isolated incidents:

While tempting to dismiss as one-off incidents, the threats and attacks come amid a backdrop of a culture of violence among the left. Riots, once a rare occurrence in America, now seem commonplace from leftist thugs in the era of Trump. Hundreds of people were arrested for rioting on Trump’s Inauguration Day alone, and college campuses have seen threats and violence should they dare to invite a conservative speaker onto campus.

He also observed that this is being driven by the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the Democrat-media complex. Worse yet, a piece at the liberal Huffington Post actually encourages this behavior:

This has even been promoted to an extent by some liberal media outlets. In addition to the general hysteria and misinformation being pushed by some outlets (such as the false claim spread by a number of outlets that the health care reform bill would “make sexual assault a pre-existing condition”), there have been outright calls for harassment.
