Trump Surge Freakout: More Violence Against Supporters
By Matthew Vadum

Physical attacks on Donald Trump supporters and their personal property
appear to be growing increasingly common as Election Day approaches and
passions intensify.

As LifeZette recently reported [1], there was a foiled assassination
attempt at a Trump rally and many Trump supporters have been beaten up
or hit with flying objects throughout the course of the fall campaign.

“I think there is desperation by Democrats that Trump is actually
gaining in the polls and it looks real good that he’s going to win.”

While the mainstream media has relentlessly promoted Hillary Clinton’s
candidacy, it has largely ignored or downplayed these violent attacks
against supporters of Donald Trump.

For example, the national media paid little attention to a Trump
supporter being shot by a Trump detractor in Ohio.

In late July an unidentified 60-year-old man was shot in the leg at
Winston’s Bar on Cleveland’s East Side. His assailant, Darnell Hall,
45, shot him after their discussion of presidential politics grew
heated. The attacker “was enraged that anyone in the overwhelmingly
African-American bar would support the GOP nominee,” the Plain Dealer
reports. Hall later surrendered to police and was charged with
felonious assault.

Two UCLA students told Sean Hannity on Oct. 25 they’ve seen a lot of
anti-Trump violence on campus. Haley Nieves said protesters crashed one
of their pro-Trump rallies. “They were stomping on the American flag
during the event and even attempting to burn it afterward.” Dominique
Blair said, “You face crazy leftist mobs that are not tolerant of your
views whatsoever, and it turns into a lot of bad debates. Sometimes
violent, sometimes hitting and fights. I’ve been all around it.” Blair
added, “I am treated very poorly on my campus and other campuses. It’s
very hard to be a conservative activist in Los Angeles.”

On Oct. 26 a man dressed as a construction worker took a sledgehammer
and a pick-ax to Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Deadline
Hollywood reports. The vandalism obliterated Trump’s name on the
sidewalk. The man identified himself to a reporter as Jamie Otis.
Trump’s star was dedicated in 2007 to recognize his work on the NBC TV
show “The Apprentice.” Otis “said he originally intended to remove
Trump’s star completely to auction it off next month in New York to
raise funds for the women who have recently come forward to accuse
Trump of sexually assaulting them over the decades.”

Afterwards, a homeless black woman guarded what was left of the star.
The woman held a sign that reads, “20 Million Illegals and Americans
Sleep on the Streets in Tents. Vote Trump.” Clinton supporters raided
the woman’s shopping cart and hurled abuse at her.

As an angry mob tore up her signs, one man told her "You spewed hate
and you got hate." He added, "You got exactly what you were dishing
out. I told you. I warned you."

Attacks on election signs have been widespread in this presidential
election cycle.

"While signs were often stolen or spray-painted in past elections,
local law enforcement in several swing states told NBC News the vitriol
has never been this tangible," NBC reported Nov. 4. "In Nevada, Reno
police Officer Tim Broadway said campaign-based vandalism has been more
prevalent this season than during any election in his 12-year career."

"A lot of it is the nature of the two candidates who are running,"
Broadway said.

David Jones, chairman of the Making Maine Great Again political action
committee, told NBC he bought 5,000 signs and distributed them across
Maine's first congressional district. Thieves stole about 1,000 of the
signs, he estimates.

"We were finding that we would put them up one day and they'd be gone
the next, if they lasted a day," Jones said. "They would be destroyed,
stolen, painted, cut. It's unbelievable how people reacted to it."

Many violent attacks at pro-Trump events appear to have been
orchestrated by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and senior operatives in the
Democratic National Committee. Undercover videos shot by ACORN slayer
James O’Keefe’s group Project Veritas Action caught senior Democrat
consultants Robert Creamer and Scott Foval acknowledging using dirty,
likely illegal tricks against the Trump campaign. Both have since
resigned from the DNC, a move some consider to be an admission of
guilt. Their goal was to generate negative media coverage of Trump
rallies by fomenting violence at them. The media eagerly used the
various altercations Democrats created to attempt to discredit Trump by
depicting his supporters as violent, knuckle-dragging crazies.

Foval said on camera his agents "infiltrate" Trump events. "It doesn’t
matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win
this motherf**ker." He adds, "we’re starting anarchy here."

In one video Creamer says Hillary Clinton personally knows about the
false flag operation. Her campaign "is fully in it," he says. "Hillary
knows through the chain of command what’s going on." Previously
convicted of felony bank fraud, Creamer has close personal ties to
President Obama and has visited the Obama White House 342 times
including 47 meetings with Obama personally.

One of the visits even took place in Obama’s personal living quarters.
"It’s a very big deal that Creamer visited the president’s residence in
the White House," a former senior White House employee told this
writer. "White House employees can work there for years and never visit
the residence."

As previously reported, violent demonstrators from left-wing
organizations including MoveOn, Black Lives Matter, and People for
Bernie forced the cancelation of a planned Trump rally March 11 at the
University of Illinois at Chicago. The belligerent anti-Trump activists
streamed into the event and later celebrated shutting it down. The
event, which led to the arrest of four people, received a great deal of
media attention though much of it focused on how peaceful the
protesters supposedly were.

The abortive Chicago rally received plenty of national media attention
but a Trump rally in St. Louis, Mo., that same day that was besieged by
violent demonstrators was largely ignored.

KTLA reported at the time that at least 32 people were arrested in
protests both inside and outside Trump's rally at the Peabody Opera
House. "Thirty-one people were charged with disturbing the peace, and
one was charged with third-degree assault," the TV station reported.

The March 11 rally in Chicago seems to have been the launch of the
Left’s campaign of violence and intimidation aimed at Trump and his
supporters.

As Noah Rothman wrote at Commentary:

What followed Chicago was a campaign of unreciprocated leftist violence
targeting conservative Trump supporters across the country. On several
occasions, Trump-backers were harassed and attacked by leftist
demonstrators, much of which occurred with minimal national press
coverage or which was characterized as the inevitable result of Trump’s
provocations.

Here is a compilation of some of the attacks on Trump supporters that
were left out of this writer’s previous article on anti-Trump violence:

On Nov. 4 obscene messages including "F**k Trump yessir" were spray-
painted on the Alamance County, N.C., Republican Party headquarters in
Burlington, the News & Observer reports. The local GOP called the
incident an "act of political violence."

On Nov. 4 the Denver, Colo., Trump campaign office was vandalized,
9News reports. Windows were spray-painted and "Trump = thief" was
spray-painted on a brick wall.

Fox 5 reported Nov. 3 that several Trump signs were spray-painted,
kicked, and ripped along Minnieville Road in Woodbridge, Va. The Prince
William County Republican Party has filed eight police reports about
vandalism.

Corey Stewart, chairman of the county’s board of supervisors and former
Trump campaign chairman for Virginia, blames Hillary Clinton’s
campaign. "I think there is desperation by Democrats that Trump is
actually gaining in the polls and it looks real good that he’s going to
win, not just the country, but he could very well win Virginia."

On Nov. 1 Students for Hillary members harassed pro-Trump students and
destroyed Trump campaign signs at a rally at Penn State University’s
University Park campus in State College, Campus Reform reports. Members
of the expressly pro-Trump Bull Moose Party group built a temporary
wall around a flagpole and placed Trump signs on it. University
administrators had previously refused to allow students to use the name
"Trump" in the name of their club citing bogus legal concerns.

On Oct. 31 in Easton, Mass. a man in a Halloween costume pulled up a
Trump lawn sign and destroyed it, NECN reports. "I think it’s just very
unfortunate that people won’t allow me to express my opinion in a
pretty peaceful way," said homeowner Steven Salvucci. "It’s just a sign
in the street."

On Oct. 31 a Youth for Trump sign was ripped down at the University of
Pittsburgh with such force that the tree limb it was posted on broke,
Campus Reform reports. Lindsey Hern, a senior, said the group’s booth
was surrounded by an angry profanity-screaming mob. One female student
shouted at her, "how can you be a woman and support Trump?" Hern said
she was "horrified and scared for my safety because of my views." A few
days earlier students flipped a Youth for Trump table over on campus.

On the night of Oct. 29-30, vandals spray-painted anti-Trump slogans
and "obscene sexual images" on the Wooddale United Church in East
Stroudsburg, Penn., the Pocono Record reports.

On Oct. 25 Ronnie Sartain’s home in Gainesville, Fla. was vandalized,
the Gainesville Sun reports. Sartain found a 5-foot-high purple
swastika painted on his garage door and swastikas painted on his
walkway and on his Trump yard sign. One of his neighbors also
complained to police about finding swastikas painted on his truck and
Trump sign.

In Provo, Utah, Loy Brunson’s Trump signs and those of his neighbors
were vandalized, Good4Utah reported Oct. 20. "Amerikkka" was painted on
his car.

On Oct. 24 in Reno, Nev., veteran-owned Macabee Arms LTD was
vandalized. A Trump sign was spray-painted over in black paint along
with a vehicle, KOLO reports.

TV station WITN reported Oct. 19 that shots had been fired late at
night two days earlier at the front windows of the Pamlico County
Republican Party Headquarters in Bayboro, N.C. County GOP chairman Dave
Wickersham said two large Trump signs were vandalized. This was the
second such incident in the prior three weeks.

On Oct. 11 Hillary Clinton supporters ripped down a temporary wall made
of boxes at the Fort Collins campus of Colorado State University that
bore the Trump slogan "Make America Great Again." Juan Caro, chairman
of student organization Conservative Interest Group, told Campus Reform
that many students were shouted down as they expressed political views,
and that he was personally called an "ignorant Hispanic, stupid, and
f**ked in the head" for backing Trump.

On Oct. 8 two landscaping bricks were hurled through a window at the
Delaware County Republican Party office in Muncie, Ind., Fox59 reports.
Signs for Trump and local candidates were on display in the window at
the time.

On Oct. 1 the brand new Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.,
was vandalized. "Black Lives Matter" was spray-painted at the hotel
entrance. The other phrase painted was "No Justice, [No] Peace," with
the second "no" expressed using a red circle with a slash.

On Sept. 7 at the University of California at Berkeley a group of
obscenity-shouting students attacked a College Republicans recruiting
table on campus. "A group of protesters with a megaphone confronted our
table and proceeded to snatch and attempt to rip up our Donald Trump
cut-out," Berkeley College Republicans president Jose Diaz told the
College Fix.

On May 24 at DePaul University in Chicago, supporters of Bernie Sanders
and Black Lives Matter harassed and tried to intimidate Trump supporter
Milo Yiannopoulos, an outspoken gay conservative journalist and
activist who showed up to give a speech. The activists occupied the
stage and threatened to punch Yiannopoulos, Breitbart News (the
employer of Yiannopoulos) reports. The school forced event organizers
and Breitbart to hire security guards for the event, but they refused
to intervene.

Also on May 24, shots from a pellet gun shattered a window at the
Albuquerque Convention Center during a Trump rally inside. Protesters
tried to disrupt the rally by shouting and holding banners that read
"Trump is Fascist" and "We've heard enough" and resisted being removed
by security. "Outside in the parking lot, it at times had all the
makings of a riot … Earlier in the evening demonstrators tried to break
their way into the building," Carl Cameron of Fox News reported. "At
one point a vendor with Trump t-shirts and hats had his table
overturned and someone tried to set it on fire." Local police said
"several" officers were hit by rocks and received medical attention.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) described the protesters as a
"rent-a-mob."

On March 9, Judy Beaty discovered her home in Gainesville, Va., had
been vandalized and her Trump lawn signs stolen, Fox 5 reports.
"Revolution" and "Can you see the new world through the tear gas" were
spray-painted on the front and side of her house. Beaty said her family
members were victims of a "political hate crime." The previous week
three of her Trump lawn signs were stolen, she added.

This is not an exhaustive list of all the violent acts perpetrated
against Americans who support Donald Trump’s candidacy for the highest
office in the land.

And there are still three days remaining before Election Day.

Graffiti urges killing of Trump supporters.
by Dave Urbanski

When someone spray-painted the graffiti message “kill your local Trump
supporter” on an exterior wall in Boston, you might say the culprit’s
irony alarm wasn’t ringing too loudly at the time.

Because the 20-foot-wide call to arms was found Sunday on a building
that houses studio and exhibition space — for the School of the Museum
of Fine Arts, the Boston Herald reported.

One college student noticed the message before it was painted over late
Sunday morning.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” Sam Lovett-Perkins, a nursing major at
Northeastern University, told the paper. “It’s violent and
unnecessary.”

The 21-year-old Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter added: “I think
it’s overkill on how we view each other as people. It’s outrageous
where we’ve gotten to as a nation.”

While Massachusetts State Rep. Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman) told the Herald
that “to actually advocate for killing someone is beyond the pale,” he
said “hell or high water” won’t influence Trump supporters to stay
home on Election Day.

“I don’t think there’s anybody not planning to go because of safety
concerns,” Diehl added to the paper. “One random act of a threat
hopefully doesn’t translate into anything else.”

He also noted a “disturbing trend in this presidential cycle that
there’s been people recruited from the left to attack Trump rallies and
now we’re seeing what is turning into desperation on the side of the
Clinton campaign to bully Trump voters into not coming out on Tuesday.”

“All they have is attacks on Donald Trump,” Diehl told the Herald, “and
no change in policy for getting America back on track.”

Electoral College voter: I'm getting death threats
By Alexandra King, CNN

CNN) A college student from Michigan said Wednesday that he has received
death threats after being chosen to cast an Electoral College vote for his
state in December.

Although the presidential election was won by Donald Trump on November 8,
it's not official until December 19, when all 538 members of the Electoral
College will come together to cast their votes.

Michael Banerian, the youth vice-chairman of the Michigan Republican
Party, will be one of his state's 16 electors. The honor of being
selected, a role typically bestowed to recognize a person's service and
dedication to their political party, has come at a price, Banerian told
CNN's Brianna Keilar .

"Obviously, this election cycle was pretty divisive. Unfortunately it's
bled over into the weeks following the election and I have been inundated
with death threats, death wishes, generally angry messages trying to get
me to change my vote to Hillary Clinton or another person, and
unfortunately, it's gotten a little out of control." Banerian said.

Banerian said he has been threatened with violence.

"I've had people talk about putting a bullet in the back of my mouth. I've
had death wishes or people just saying 'I hope you die.' Or, 'do society a
favor, throw yourself in front of a bus,'" he said.

In every other presidential election in history, Electoral College members
have voted in accordance with their state's voters, meaning that, in
Michigan, Banerian and his fellow electors will cast their votes for
Donald Trump. But even if he could change his vote, it would still be
against the law to do so in his state, Banerian said.

He suggested people look up how the process works.

"In the state of Michigan we have laws that prevent faithless electors.
So, essentially what happens, if I tried to vote for somebody else, which,
let me be clear, I don't want to, but if I tried to, I would be removed
and replaced by another elector. It's a pointless endeavor," he said.

Banerian told Keilar he had filed a police report.

"I just had a very nice meeting with my local police department," he said.

CNN has not spoken with the police department or verified any threats
against Banerian.

Electors are being harassed, threatened in bid to stop Trump
By Mark Moore

Electors around the country are being harassed with a barrage of emails,
phone calls and letters — and even death threats — in an effort to block
Donald Trump from being voted in as president by the Electoral College on
Monday.

The bullying is overwhelming Sharon Geise’s tech devices, but not her
resolve to support Trump.

The Mesa, Arizona, grandmother woke up Wednesday morning to more than
1,500 emails demanding she not carry out her legal duty to vote for the
president-elect.

“They just keep coming and coming,” Geise told The Post, estimating she’s
received more than 50,000 emails since the election. “They’re
overpowering my iPad.”

Her answer: mass delete.

Despite the avalanche, she said, her decision to back Trump is stronger
than ever.

“Obviously their minds are made up and they’re not going to change. I’m
not either,” the soft-spoken Geise said.

Reports of GOP electors being badgered have been reported in numerous
states, including Georgia, Idaho, Tennessee, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.

Like Geise, Republican Patricia Allen of Tennessee told The Post she’s
been bombarded with 2,000 emails, 120 letters and five phone calls all
urging her to switch and vote against Trump. But Allen, 74, said that
despite the “siege,” she’s not budging.

“This has never happened before … Do you know how long it takes to delete
all those emails every day?” she asked.

She’s also been solicited by a Harvard University group backed by
constitutional law Prof. Lawrence Lessig, who has offered free legal aid
to electors who change their vote.

“That borders on bribery,” said Allen. “Carried to this extreme, the day
might come when an elector could be sold to the highest bidder.”

Lessig claims that 20 GOP electors are considering voting against Trump.

Even if true, that wouldn’t be enough to alter the outcome when the 538
members of the Electoral College gather to cast their official votes.
Trump has 306 electoral votes, 36 more than the minimum required.

For Michael Banerian, a senior at Oakland University in Michigan and a
Republican elector, the harassment comes with a dark side.

He said he’s been getting death threats via email, snail mail, Twitter
and Facebook.

“Somebody threatened to put a bullet in the back of my mouth,” Banerian,
22, told The Post on Wednesday.

In Utah, a group called Democracy and Progress PAC placed full-page ads
in Salt Lake City’s daily newspapers telling electors they are “not
bound” to vote for trump, who won the state.

But the Desert News reported that under Utah law, Trump must receive all
the state’s Electoral College votes, since he won the election in the
state.

The paper said Utah’s six Republican electors are being inundated with
emails pressing them not to support Trump.

One of them, Salt Lake County Councilman Richard Snelgrove, said there’s
no way he’ll cave in to the pressure.

“No, Trump won the Electoral College fair and square,” he said.

The effort to deny the electoral vote to Trump was launched shortly after
the Nov. 8 election.

The Clinton campaign came out in support of the effort Monday, backing an
open letter from 10 Democratic electors to National Intelligence Director
James Clapper calling for an intelligence briefing on what role Russian
hackers may have played in the election.

Pro-Donald Trump electors are receiving death threats ahead of Electoral
College vote
by Chris Enloe

As the Electoral College gets set to convene Monday to officially vote for
president, some electors of President-elect Donald Trump have received
extremely troubling messages — even death threats.

Michael Banerian, an elector from Michigan, is bound by Michigan state law to
vote for Trump when the Electoral College meets Monday. Electors in 27 other
states, plus D.C., have so-called “faithless elector” laws, which bind their
state’s electors to vote for the candidate the majority of their state’s
citizens voted for during the general presidential election.

Still, that hasn’t stopped people from all across the country from sending
Banerian messages to plea that he not vote for Trump.

Banerian recently told CNN that messages have poured into his social media
accounts and his mailbox. And in just the last week alone, he’s received more
than 2,000 snail-mail messages. And while most of them are tame, others are
not.

“I’ve had death wishes, people just saying ‘I hope you die. Do society a
favor, throw yourself in front of a bus.’ And just recently, I was reading a
blog about me, and unfortunately these people not only called for the burning
of myself, but my family, which is completely out of line,” he said.

Banerian added that he thinks the pressure to vote against Trump is
hypocritical because had Hillary Clinton won the election, there likely
wouldn’t be the same outcry about the Electoral College and its electors.

“It’s utter hypocrisy, because I don’t think if the roles were reversed, most
of these people would be OK with electors being faithless and voting for
anyone other than Hillary Clinton, had she won,” he said.

And while Banerian can’t go rogue — meaning he must vote for Trump on Monday
— electors in 22 other states can, and they’re undoubtedly feeling the
pressure to do so.

More from CNN:

Anti-Trump groups are not letting up, posting the names and
addresses of 283 electors on the internet, and encouraging people
across the country to write the electors asking they vote against
Trump.

The group “Hamilton Electors” is leading the charge to block
Trump from 270 electoral votes. They say at least 20 electors are
on board, but they need 37 for the election to go to the House of
Representatives.

In addition, Hollywood stars and Harvard law professor Larry Lessig are
pressuring electors to vote against Trump. Lessig has even assembled a group
of lawyers to give pro bono legal counsel to any elector in a Trump state
seeking to vote against him.

Cops: Man urinates on trooper after Disney arrest, says 'Fuck Trump'

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - A 20-year-old man was arrested on Disney
property early New Year's Day, accused of yelling profanities at law
enforcement officers and urinating on a trooper's leg.

The man, who initially refused to give his name but was later
identified as Joseph Murphy, was arrested Sunday near Disney Springs
and faces charges of battery on an officer, indecent exposure of sexual
organs and resisting an officer without violence.

According to an Orange County charging affidavit, a Florida Highway
Patrol trooper assisted another trooper, who had placed Murphy in hand
restraints on a sidewalk at Buena Vista Drive.

The first trooper said he was arresting Murphy for disorderly
intoxication, the report stated. The second trooper said Murphy reeked
of alcohol.

Murphy was placed in the trooper's patrol cruiser, where he began
banging his head against a partition and tried to choke himself, the
report said. Murphy was yelling "police brutality" as he kept banging
his head, the affidavit said.

Murphy then began yelling obscenities, including "(expletive) Donald
Trump," the report stated.

At the Orange County Jail, Murphy banged his head against a car window
and began urinating on the floor, officials said. He then turned around
and urinated on one of the trooper's pants, leaving a large wet spot on
his uniform, officials said.

Passengers cheer as woman berating Trump supporter is kicked off plane
By Kyle Olson

An elderly woman demanded a Donald Trump supporter seated next to her
be moved, but she quickly found out that’s not how the world works.

Scott Koteskey, in a window seat, posted video on Saturday showing a
woman in the middle seat complaining about him to airline personnel.

According to Kotesky:

Just had the craziest experience ever on an airplane:

I’m boarding my flight from Baltimore to Seattle and approach
my seat. I had an upgraded seat that I paid a little extra for
because of the long 6 hour flight. As I approach my row I
smile and motion to the husband and wife sitting in the aisle
and middle seat that Imy seat was next to the window. I put
my backpack in the overhead and the wife with a very stern
voice says to me:

“Did you come here to cheer or to protest?”

“I came here to celebrate democracy ma’am”

… I knew this was going to be a long flight at this point.
She then proceeded with: (somewhat paraphrased as my memory
allows)

Her: “You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes!
You should be ashamed!”

Me: ‘Well we’re all entitled to our opinions here ma’am.”

Her: “And I’m entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap!
I’m going to throw up right in your lap! You make me sick!
Don’t talk to me! Don’t look at me! Don’t you dare even put
your arm on that rest. You disgust me! You should be ashamed
of yourself! You put a maniac’s finger on the button”
(assuming she’s means nukes). You are a bigot. You should get
off this plane!”

Me: “ma’am, by definition, bigotry is disparaging someone
prior to knowing them simply by their beliefs and opinions.
Thank you for being the very thing you preach against.”

Kotesky told a flight attendant on the Seattle-bound plane that the
woman called him names and insulted him.”Is there going to be a
problem?” the flight attendant sternly asked the woman.

“I told you I would like him to change seats with somebody…” the woman
said, before the flight attendant cut her off, “Well, you don’t have
that right.”

The woman then began to berate the Trump supporter.

“You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that man’s
finger on the nuclear button. That man doesn’t believe in climate
change,” she said, using air quotes for dramatic effect.

As a gate attendant attempted to intervene, she was unrelenting.

“Do you believe in gravity? Because did you know gravity is just a
theory?”

“Will you grab your belongings and come with me?” the attendant asked
her.

She then attempted to use her recently-deceased mother-in-law for why
she should remain on the plane and be unaccountable for her behavior.

Refusing to leave the plane, she said, “I paid for this seat and I’m
sitting here. He’s in my space.”

As the attendant patiently and repeatedly asked the woman to exit the
plane, she said, “I’m going home now. We had to be here. My mother-
in-law died.”

The woman and the man sitting next to her attempted to negotiate with
the attendant, trying to remain on the plane.

“Fine, I’ll be quiet.”

“I’m not going to allow that,” he responded, before informing the
woman the captain wanted her off the plane.

Another video, taken from across the aisle, showed the woman sneering
at the Trump supporter, then at passengers behind her before police
ordered her off the plane.

Here’s the video (sorry for the low quality) of the lady
being ejected off the plane. Pretty inaudible, but you
can see her sneers and make snide remarks as she’s escorted
by police.

Posted by Scott Koteskey on Saturday, January 21, 2017

Passengers cheered as she carried her belongings and exited the
aircraft.

“So I get a whole row to myself?” asked the other passengers.

The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF)
held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with
a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.

“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants,
Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other
minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis,
Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for
anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event
page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.”

“This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS.”
Tweet This


The description explains that a local amateur boxer was on hand to teach basic
hand-to-hand combat techniques at the self-defense clinic, in order to help the
socialist students better protect themselves from potential hate crimes
performed by those sympathetic to “Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis.”

After the instruction, students were given the opportunity to practice what
they learned by sparring with one another.

The event planners specifically urged women to attend because they expect a
rise in sexual violence due to the election of President Trump.

“Ladies: The Commander in thief is a sexual predator and rapist,” the
description warns. “He has normalised sexual assault and it is expected that
sexual violence against women is going to skyrocket in the next 12 months.
Please join us! There will be other women there for you to spar against!”

The organizers also imply that they are looking forward to unprotected
sparring, remarking that “We will have gloves and pads, no bare-knuckle yet
;).”

Scott Benton, a UCF College Republican, told Campus Reform that he considers
the impulse toward violence to be a natural consequence of the intellectual
indefensibility of leftists beliefs, saying, “If you can’t hang with someone on
a debate stage, then you resort to other means to try and justify your cause.”

Other students, however, say they feel less safe on campus because of the
event.

Campus Reform obtained an email exchange in which a UCF student alerts the Dean
of Student Conduct, Dana Juntunen, to the existence of the “disturbing event,”
to which Juntunen replied by thanking the student for bringing the event to the
school’s attention and stating that campus administrators would be “looking
further into this.”

“This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS,” the Facebook
event page proudly proclaims.

Karis Lockhart, chair of the UCF College Republicans, put it simply, telling
Campus Reform that “the fact that the description of the event says ‘everyone
except republicans’ means they don't want to hold an educational discussion
about the issues, they just want to whine.”

Neither Knights for Socialism nor UCF spokespersons responded to requests for
comment from Campus Reform in time for publication.

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. — A substitute teacher in Tennessee has been
fired because of a post on Facebook about President Donald Trump’s
supporters.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, the post in question was on
Nov. 9, 2016, at 9:29 a.m.

The post read:

“The only good Trump supporter is a dead Trump supporter.”

Rutherford County Schools spokesman James Evans said in a statement
Thursday that the school district received several messages on
Wednesday about “a substitute teacher who is accused of making
inappropriate, threatening comments on social media during the work
day.”

Evans said the school district contracts with PESG to provide
substitute teachers and has notified the contractor that the substitute
teacher, David Colin, will no longer be permitted to work in Rutherford
County Schools.

“PESG has indicated it will conduct an internal investigation of the
allegations immediately,” Evans said.

Congressman Staffer Knocked Unconscious By Anti-Trump Protesters...
http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2017/02/15/rohrabacher-staffer-71-knocked-
unconscious-by-group-delivering-valentines-day-cards/

HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Rep. Dana Rohrabacher says a 71-year-old
staffer at his Huntington Beach office was knocked unconscious during a
protest, but the protestors say they were delivering Valentine’s Day cards.

The “assault” on Rohrabacher’s district director, Kathleen Staunton,
happened Tuesday afternoon during a protest by a group calling themselves
Indivisible OC. Police confirmed they were called to the scene, but made no
arrests.

Staunton was trying to exit through the front door of Rohrabacher’s office
to visit a restroom when, according to Rohrabacher, a protester yanked the
door open, causing her to fall and hit her head. The door also pushed over a
2-year-old child who was apparently brought along with the crowd, but she
was not injured, the congressmen said.

Staunton, who has managed Rohrabacher’s office since his first term in 1989,
was treated by paramedics and taken to a local hospital, Rohrabacher said.

Rohrabacher Outraged by Assault on his District Director by
‘Indivisible’ Mob https://t.co/7JtYucqsKT

— Dana Rohrabacher (@RepRohrabacher) February 15, 2017

“I am outraged beyond words that protesters who mobbed my Huntington Beach
office violently knocked down my faithful district director, Kathleen
Staunton, causing her to be hospitalized,” Rohrabacher said in a statement.
“And, yes, deliberate or not, the incident came as part of a mob action that
not only intimidates but coerces. Though the protesters think of themselves
as idealists, they engaged in political thuggery, pure and simple.”

The protest was part of a nationwide movement calling itself “Indivisible”
and pledged to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda. Rohrabacher said the
group came to demand a town hall meeting with him even though he was working
in Washington D.C. with the House of Representatives in session.

Sen. Chuck Schumer caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began
yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the
POTUS is “a liar.”

Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper
East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses.

He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the
former US secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy
Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his
wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.

Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William
S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even
though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.

One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected
couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The
Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the
sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “?‘How could
you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’?”

Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was
really rude .?.?. He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I
voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar.
I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so
surprised I didn’t say anything.”

Joseph didn’t return calls for comment.

A spokesman for Schumer said, “[He] and his wife ate at the café on Sunday,
engaging in unremarkable conversation with patrons who approached their
table. There were no heated exchanges with ?anyone.”

Schumer has been making a lot of noise about Trump. On Monday he called for
the removal of Republican Representative Nunes as chairman of House
Intelligence Committee. He’s also said he and the Democrats will attempt to
filibuster Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

It’s really interesting to watch how people react when Chris Matthews
makes an insanely absurd comment on his own show.

IN this case, he compares Uday and Qusay, the murderous sons of
Saddam Hussein.

Watch below:
https://videos.files.wordpress.com/LJ7H0Tuh/matthews-compares-trump-kids-to-saddam-kids_hd.mp4

Unbelievable.

I know it’s cliche, but imagine if a Fox News guy said this about
Obama – in fact, Glenn Beck got fired from Fox News for saying that
Obama might be a racist. Matthews is comparing the Trump kids to
murderous slugs who had RAPE ROOMS where they would keep slaves that
they WOULD RAPE.

Amazing.

Stephen Colbert’s Shocking Attack On Trump Concludes With A Homophobic
Slur

https://youtu.be/HaHwlSTqA7s

Once the clock struck midnight on Donald Trump’s 100 days in office,
Stephen Colbert’s claws came out. He delivered his most vicious attack
on the President to date during the monologue of Monday night’s The
Late Show with Stephen Colbert, using language many were shocked to
hear come out of the late night host’s mouth — including a derogatory
slur many consider to be homophobic.

Colbert’s 12 minute monologue (!) began by addressing Trump’s rally in
Pennsylvania over the weekend and and the handful of interviews he
granted, singling in on his interaction with Face The Nation host John
Dickerson. Trump wasn’t so quick to offer up answers to many questions,
including one about his taxes, and told Dickerson he refers to the
Sunday morning news program as “Deface The Nation.” To this, Colbert
offered, “Donald Trump, John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist and
one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office,
and you treat him like that?” Colbert also stood up for his CBS
colleague, saying Dickerson has “way too much dignity to trade insults
with a president of the United States to his face.”

However, Colbert admitted, “I sir, am no John Dickerson” —quick aside:
Don’t you just HATE when people use the word “sir” as a means to levy a
condescending attack?— before he unleashed a string of insults,
including “Mr. President, I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace
The Nation,’” and “You’re the ‘presi-dunce’ but you’re turning into a
real ‘prick-tator.” (Fast forward to roughly the 10:25 mark of this
video.)

But then he went about as brutal as we’ve ever really seen Colbert get,
continuing, “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You
have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a
sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head.”

And then Colbert finished it off with the most scathing line of them
all: “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir
Putin’s cock holster,” which elicited gasps from the studio audience.

Lobbing jokes at the President of the United States, be they Democrat
or Republican, is a time-honored late night monologue tradition.
Partisan critiquing of the President’s policies is a relatively new
facet of late night monologues (at least those on broadcast TV), but
one that has undeniably led to increased ratings and relevance for
hosts like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and others. However, using a
derogatory, homophobic slur like “cock holster” to denigrate the
rightfully elected leader of our nation seems like a step way, way too
far. In a misguided attempt to defend his friend and fellow Tiffany
Network employee, Colbert’s blustery bravado regressed from pointed
punnery into nasty schoolyard bullying, embarrassing himself, his
staff, his network and everyone that watches his show.

Will Colbert get suspended for crossing the line like this? We strongly
doubt it. However, that doesn’t mean that he should simply get away
with it. The right thing to do in a situation like this would be for
Colbert to apologize for getting caught up in the heat of the moment
and taking things too far. We’ll be tuning in to the Late Show this
evening to see if he recognizes the error of his ways. Disagree with
the President all you want, “Sir,” but try to do so in a manner that’s
more becoming of someone of your immense talent.

Stephen Colbert’s Shocking Attack On Trump Concludes With A Homophobic
Slur
https://youtu.be/HaHwlSTqA7s
Once the clock struck midnight on Donald Trump’s 100 days in office,
Stephen Colbert’s claws came out. He delivered his most vicious attack
on the President to date during the monologue of Monday night’s The
Late Show with Stephen Colbert, using language many were shocked to
hear come out of the late night host’s mouth — including a derogatory
slur many consider to be homophobic.
Colbert’s 12 minute monologue (!) began by addressing Trump’s rally in
Pennsylvania over the weekend and and the handful of interviews he
granted, singling in on his interaction with Face The Nation host John
Dickerson. Trump wasn’t so quick to offer up answers to many questions,
including one about his taxes, and told Dickerson he refers to the
Sunday morning news program as “Deface The Nation.” To this, Colbert
offered, “Donald Trump, John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist and
one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office,
and you treat him like that?” Colbert also stood up for his CBS
colleague, saying Dickerson has “way too much dignity to trade insults
with a president of the United States to his face.”
Don’t you just HATE when people use the word “sir” as a means to levy a
condescending attack?— before he unleashed a string of insults,
including “Mr. President, I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace
The Nation,’” and “You’re the ‘presi-dunce’ but you’re turning into a
real ‘prick-tator.” (Fast forward to roughly the 10:25 mark of this
video.)
But then he went about as brutal as we’ve ever really seen Colbert get,
continuing, “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You
have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a
sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head.”
And then Colbert finished it off with the most scathing line of them
all: “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir
Putin’s cock holster,” which elicited gasps from the studio audience.
Lobbing jokes at the President of the United States, be they Democrat
or Republican, is a time-honored late night monologue tradition.
Partisan critiquing of the President’s policies is a relatively new
facet of late night monologues (at least those on broadcast TV), but
one that has undeniably led to increased ratings and relevance for
hosts like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and others. However, using a
derogatory, homophobic slur like “cock holster” to denigrate the
rightfully elected leader of our nation seems like a step way, way too
far. In a misguided attempt to defend his friend and fellow Tiffany
Network employee, Colbert’s blustery bravado regressed from pointed
punnery into nasty schoolyard bullying, embarrassing himself, his
staff, his network and everyone that watches his show.
Will Colbert get suspended for crossing the line like this? We strongly
doubt it. However, that doesn’t mean that he should simply get away
with it. The right thing to do in a situation like this would be for
Colbert to apologize for getting caught up in the heat of the moment
and taking things too far. We’ll be tuning in to the Late Show this
evening to see if he recognizes the error of his ways. Disagree with
the President all you want, “Sir,” but try to do so in a manner that’s
more becoming of someone of your immense talent.
When did YOU get so politically correct?
Oh... that's right - this isn't YOU.
All you can manage to do is cut and paste the thoughts of your betters.
In other words, you are unable to offer a proper rebuttal.
Ad hominem noted. Get back to us when you have a real argument to make.

BUZZFEED EMPLOYEES JOKE ABOUT TRUMP ASSASSINATION...
Cassandra Fairbanks

BuzzFeed, the outlet behind the infamous and absurd “Golden Showers”
dossier, has more than a bit of disdain for President Donald Trump — as
proven through these leaked conversations from their private workplace
chat.

In screenshots exclusively provided to Big League Politics by former
BuzzFeed employee Tim “Treadstone” Gionet, better known as Baked
Alaska, the website’s Director of Social Media Maycie Thornton wishes
for Trump’s assassination as co-workers laughed and cheered her on.

“Maybe someone will assassinate him,” said Thornton.

“This was not the first time BuzzFeed employees talked openly about
wishing President Trump would get assassinated, they hated
conservatives so much they even held an office party when Justice
Scalia died. It was a toxic environment and you were declared a heretic
if you were a Trump supporter, bottom line,” Treadstone told Big
League.

Treadstone has been outspoken as his treatment as a BuzzFeed employee
after coming out publicly in support of Trump during the election
season. His allegations of being treated differently at work for being
conservative were confirmed by multiple BuzzFeed employees in a profile
by Oliver Darcy for Business Insider.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson on Wednesday evening, Ben Smith Editor-in-
Chief of BuzzFeed News, claimed that conservatives did not face
discrimination at the outlet.

Smith claimed that Treadstone’s story about unfair treatment were lies
when he was confronted about it by Carlson.

Carlson read from Darcy’s piece, “‘I’ll never forget this story,’
Gionet said, recalling to Business Insider the “aha moment” that drove
him toward Trump. ‘I was talking about the new Justin Bieber album. And
I was like, ‘Dude, that new Justin Bieber album is dope. I have to
admit, I love Justin Bieber. He is totally my spirit animal.’ And
someone came up to me and was like, ‘Hey bro, you can’t say spirit
animal, that’s culturally appropriating Native American culture and
that’s not cool.’”

Treadstone claims that after his switch to Trump, his treatment at the
outlet took a turn for the worst — and the hostility ultimately lead to
his resignation.

“I don’t think it happened, I was not there,” Smith said. “He was not
somebody who I think was persecuted for his conservative beliefs.”



Smith has previously been referred to as a “total mess” by President
Trump.



Buzzfeed initially declined to comment for this report.

Will CEO Jonah Peretti condemn his employees calling for the
assassination of President Trump?

Let me know when you find an actual example of something to be outraged about.

Funny how your knee-jerk response is to deflect and selectively edit

by going into hiding.

Democrat In Montana Wants Republicans To Commit Suicide
by Chris Reynolds

President Donald Trump tapped Congressman Ryan Zinke of Montana to be
his Secretary of the Interior and undo former President Barack Obama’s
federal land grabs. This has left Zinke’s former House seat vacant, and
subject to a special election to fill it.

The choice of Zinke’s replacement is a no-brainer, although Democrats
have been pouring millions into the race in a desperate attempt to
reclaim some scrap of leverage in Washington. They made a very poor
choice in their candidate, however, and he just made a truly revolting
statement about those who oppose his nutty ideas should kill ourselves.

Republican Greg Gianforte, a successful engineer, is running against
Democrat Rob Quist, who is a musician. Described National Republican
Congressional Committee spokesman Jack Pandol about Quist, who has
performed at nudist resorts, “The more Rob Quist’s past is laid bare,
the more his claim to represent Montana values is exposed as another
charade. When all is stripped away, this washed-up hippie is just a
naked embarrassment to the voters he’s running to represent.”

In a recent debate, Gianforte shut Quist down for how he wants to kill
jobs in favor of Obama’s extreme environmental regulations. Said Greg,
“Using EPA’s data calculated by the Cato Institute; they said if we
shut down every coal-fired plant in North America our environment would
be two-hundredths of a degree cooler a hundred years from now…for that
we are willing to give up 7,000 jobs in Montana and $1.5 billion in
annual revenue? That’s not a smart business decision.”

Instead of trying to argue rationally, Quist replied by suggesting that
people who are skeptical about global warming should kill themselves.
He stated, “To me this a cumulative thing, you cannot just say closing
one plant or not is going to make a difference. This is something that
the entire world needs to address and you know what, if any of you that
feel like this is not a problem, I challenge you to go into your car in
your garage, start your car and see what happens there.” Do you hope
Republican Gianforte defeats this lunatic?

He never said he "wants you to commit suicide". He said "I challenge
you" to do something equally as stupid as ignoring Climate Change.

Even a mediocre English speaker can understand the difference.
Maybe, if you're lucky, you can find one to explain it to you.

Well, there you go accusing others of doing what you practice again, like when
you claimed Sarah Palin's "targets" on a map were orders to assassinate
politicians and more recently, when you claimed Joe Walsh called for the
assassination of Obama.

Projection noted. Get back to us when you have a real argument to make.

P.S.
It took you two days to come up with that comeback, or were you using Google
to look for postings of mine again?

Trump Supporter Harassing Muslim Family In Viral Video Cries In Mug Shot

http://www.rgvproud.com/news/local-news/trump-supporter-harassing-muslim-family-in-viral-video-cries-in-mug-shot/711293691

Brownsville, Texas - "Donald Trump will stop you [expletive]!" shouted
Alexander Jennes Downing, 35, to a Muslim family.

Downing is captured on video by the family with children as young as two
years old present on the beach of South Padre Island, Texas.

The alcohol fueled, racial slur tirade lasted for 20 minutes according
to a Facebook post by Noria Alward.

Alward posted the video on YouTube May 5th.

According to South Padre Island Police reports, "On May 3, 2017,
officers were dispatched to 310 Padre Blvd in reference to a
disturbance. Officers made contact with Alexander Jennes Downing (35) of
Waterford, Connecticut. While making contact with Downing officers
determined that he was intoxicated in a public place and was a danger to
himself and others."

Officers arrested Downing at the Pearl Resort and charged him with
Public Intoxication. In the viral video Downing is seen with a clear
plastic cup while shouting "Donald Trump is my president!" and " "You
can try to act like your innocence. You can try to [expletive] with me
but guess what you will never ever ever stop me. My Christianity will
rise above your Sharia law. Your Sharia law I don't mean [expletive] to me!"

Awww... poor little creampuff!

He was the victim of a Twitter attack, and was hospitalized for it. The

WEAKELY COUNTY, Tenn. -- A Weakely County woman was arrested after
reportedly following Congressman David Kustoff Office: Representative (R-TN
8th District) and then threatening him.

Police say Wendi Wright followed a car down Highway 45 Monday afternoon.

Inside the car were Congressman Kustoff and aide Marianne Dunavant.

Wright reportedly followed the car after it left a town hall on the UT
Martin campus.

A police report states Kustoff and Dunavant felt they were in danger of
being forced off the road.

When they pulled into the driveway of someone they know, Wright reportedly
ran to the car and screamed while banging on the car and reaching in.

She then reportedly blocked the car until police were called and she ran
away.

Wright later posted about the incident on her Facebook account.

She is charged with felony reckless endangerment.

Trump supporter Scott Koleskey had stowed his backpack in the
overhead compartment and was about to settle into his window
seat when he was verbally flogged by a fellow passenger.

It happened Saturday on board an Alaska Airlines flight from
Baltimore to Seattle.

“She immediately asked me, ‘Did you come to cheer or to
protest?’” Scott told me as he recounted the ordeal.

“As I was sliding into my seat I told her I came to celebrate
democracy,” he said.

Scott had traveled all the way from Kalispell, Montana so he
could stand on the National Mall and watch Donald Trump take the
oath of office.

“I’m a Trump supporter and I’m a patriot,” he said.

He said the woman, seated in the middle seat, went “from zero to
60.”

“There was no discussion or escalation. It was her coming out of
the gate swinging at me with insults,” he said.

“She said, ‘Shame on you and all of the cockroaches that
supported him,’” Scott recounted. “She called me fat and she
said, ‘f*** you.’”

About three minutes into the verbal assault, Scott pressed the
record button on his cell phone. What he filmed has since gone
viral.

“You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that
man’s finger on the nuclear button,” she said. “That man doesn’t
believe in climate change. Do you believe in gravity? Did you
know gravity is just a theory?”

Exasperated flight attendants tried to calm the hysterical woman
– but she would not comply with their demands.

“Have some respect,” she told one of the flight attendants.

Scott said it was a bit ironic that she would demand respect –
while she was disparaging a fellow passenger.

At one point, the unidentified woman threatened to vomit in
Scott’s lap.

“I’m going to throw up right in your lap. You make me sick.
Don’t talk to me. Don’t look at me. Don’t you dare even put your
arm on that rest. You disgust me,” she reportedly told the
bewildered Trump supporter.

Police were eventually summoned to remove the foul-mouthed woman
from the jetliner as other passengers cheered and chanted, “USA,
USA.”

“She was definitely causing a big disturbance for everyone on
the plane,” Scott said. “And I was relieved I wasn’t going to be
harassed for a five-hour flight.”

It turns out this story has a happy ending. A standby passenger
– hoping to return home to see his wife and daughter – was given
the anti-Trump woman’s seat.

Scott said the man was a registered Democrat and he was taken
aback by the woman’s hysterics.

“He was very, very civil and we had some great discussions,”
Scott told me. “He said it doesn’t matter the disagreements we
have – we’re all Americans. We should respect each other.

And that’s the moral of this story, folks.

“No matter what we believe in, no matter what our political
views – we have to treat each other with civility and respect no
matter what,” Scott said.

Violence and intimidation against Republicans are quickly becoming the
new normal in an increasingly tense political climate.

In one of the most recent incidents, police in Tennessee charged a
woman with felony reckless endangerment on Thursday for allegedly
trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a
town hall. The woman, Wendi Wright, was reportedly enraged over
Kustoff’s support for the American Health Care Act and screamed at the
congressman and his aide, striking his car windows and reaching inside
the vehicle.

The same day that Tennessee police charged Wright for reckless
endangerment, police in North Dakota escorted an enraged man from
another town hall after he became physical with Republican Rep. Kevin
Cramer over his support for the GOP Obamacare replacement. “Will the
rich benefit from, if the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a
tax break? Yes or no?” the man shouted, before shoving cash down the
congressman’s collar. “There you go, take it.”

CNN’s Poppy Harlow downplayed the incident, saying the man was “showing
his disgust” with Cramer.

The day before that, a Huffington Post article that showed “how to
really turn up the heat on elected officials” went viral. The author,
Michaelangelo Signorile, called on protesters to harass Republicans at
dinner, when they’re out shopping and even at home. Societal norms for
the basic levels of decency one should afford political opponents,
Signorile argued, no longer apply to liberals.

“It’s time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries.
It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a
massive way,” he wrote. (RELATED: In Their Own Words: Anti-Trump
‘Resistance’ Leaders Say They Want To Make America ‘Ungovernable’)

Starting today and from here on, no elected official --
certainly those in the GOP defending and supporting Trump on
a variety of issues, for example -- should be able to sit down
for a nice, quiet lunch or dinner in a Washington, DC eatery
or even in their own homes. They should be hounded by
protestors everywhere, especially in public -- in restaurants,
in shopping centers, in their districts, and yes, on the
public property outside their homes and apartments, in
Washington and back in their home states.

Signorile’s article has already been shared more than 29,000 times.



Political violence has been increasingly common as left-wing
organizations have whipped up mobs against Republicans and supporters
of the president. (RELATED: Leaked Audio Reveals Anti-Trump Forces
Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall)

A popular parade in Portland, Oregon last month was cancelled after
threats of violence against one of the groups participating — a local
Republican organization.

An email warning parade organizers promised 200 or more protesters
would rush into the parade and drag the Republican marchers out, if
that’s what it took to keep them from participating. “You have seen how
much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from
shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the email
warned. Portland has been a site for organized left-wing protests,
which have often turned into violent riots. (RELATED: Leader Of
Portland Anti-Trump Protests Charged With Sexually Abusing A Minor)

The threat was sent from an email address registered with RiseUp.Net,
an organization that is open about “providing communication and
computer resources to allies engaged in struggles against capitalism
and other forms of oppression.”

The Oregon threat was credible in part because Berkeley, California has
become a literal political battlefield on multiple occasions now, after
far-left groups have resorted to violence to keep Pro-Trump speakers
(or, in one case, free speech marchers who happened to be Trump
supporters) from appearing in public.

Pro-Trump speaker Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at the University of
California-Berkeley cancelled after rioters set the campus ablaze in
order to keep him from speaking. (RELATED: ‘INFERNO’ — Milo Speech
Cancelled After Rioters Set Campus Ablaze [VIDEO])

Political commentator Ann Coulter, who staunchly supported Trump during
his presidential campaign, had her speech at UC Berkeley cancelled
after the protest groups vowed a repeat performance of the Milo riots.
(RELATED: Documents Tie Berkeley Riot Organizers To Pro-Pedophilia

A North Carolina GOP office was even firebombed a month before the
election, and a building adjacent to it was spray painted with
graffiti: “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”

Being a Republican in high school or college is increasingly
treacherous — and not just at Berkeley.

Shortly before the election, a female high school student was attacked
after declaring her support for Trump. A fellow female student took the
girl’s glasses off and punched her in the face, saying, “Fuck you, you
bitch.”

Olivia Corn, president of Cornell University’s College Republicans,
said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the
election. “Fuck you, racist bitch, you support a racist party,” her
attacker reportedly said. Ironically, Corn said she was “not Donald
Trump’s biggest fan,” and added that she “was saddened that I was not
afforded the same respect that I offer others.”

A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat
after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump
after he started arguing with them.

Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student
after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.

“It definitely had a political motivation,” said Lt. Mike Bandish of
the Palm Bay Police Department. “The boy was carrying a Trump sign and
walked into the gym. The other boy punched him in the face.”

LEFT-WING TWITTER CELEBRATES SHOOTING OF REP. SCALISE
"That KKK fucker deserved it"

No sooner did news break that a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) were
left-wing Twitter users celebrating the attack — in which two Capitol Police
were also shot, as well as a congressional staffer, and possibly more.

Activist and media personality, Tariq Nasheed, appeared to indicate support
for the shooting on Twitter:

Author Malcom Harris, "joked"(?) that the shooter may have simply been acting

Technology writer WaltIsFrozen said the attack will have a "silver lining" if
the shooter was indeed targeting Republicans specifically:

"RestlessNews" created a meme that suggested the attack is the definition of

Other left-wing Twitter users said they hoped this shooting would encourage
Scalise to rethink his support for gun rights — as he's a "whore" for the NRA:

Others tried to use the atrocity as an excuse to make jokes about health-care

Republican Members of Congress receive threats, consider security following
shooting
By BENJAMIN SIEGEL

The shooting at the Republican congressional baseball team's practice
Wednesday in Virginia has reignited a long-simmering debate on Capitol Hill
this year about the threats against members and increasing security.

For months, Republicans have expressed concerns about safety at town hall
events. In February, Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Washington, a former sheriff,
briefed House Republicans on safety measures for district offices amid health
care protests.

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, has recently faced death threats after calling for
Trump's impeachment on the House floor.

Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., one of two Muslim-American members of Congress,
told ABC News he "regularly" receives death threats.

Both Democrats, along with other members, receive local law enforcement
protection at home.

Members on both sides of the aisle reported a new series of threats today
after the shooting – which prompted new debate about whether members need
additional security.

Green told ABC News that the House Sergeant at Arms and Capitol Police
leadership briefed members this morning on security in the closed door
session, and questions about adding protection to members in Washington and at
home were raised.

"There’s an evaluation in terms of what the security needs are," Green said.

Some Democrats reported threatening calls to their offices after the shooting
today.

"A lot of members are talking about receiving calls in their offices that the
‘Dems are next’," Carson told ABC News after the closed-door meeting this
afternoon.

Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New York, received a threatening email this morning
after the shooting, where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana was
injured, according to an aide.

"Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in
order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit.
Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good Riddance," the
note reads. Tenney’s office reported the note to Capitol Police.

Rep. Pat Meehan, R-Penn. said the shooting has raised questions about future
events - including the upcoming congressional picnic at the White House.

“You’re going to have members and families and oftentimes there are long lines
and you have lines of members of Congress just sitting outside exposed," he
said.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., who was at the practice today and tended to
Scalise, suggested members should be allowed "reciprocity" for concealed carry
in Washington.

"If this had happened in Georgia, it wouldn’t have gotten too far. I had a
staff member in his car, maybe 20 yards behind the shooter pinned in his car,
who, back in Georgia, carries a 9 mm in his car,” Loudermilk said. “He had a
clear shot.”

Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., told WKBW, an ABC affiliate in Buffalo, New York,
that he would also consider carrying a gun in public after today.

“I have a carry permit. I will be carrying when I’m out and about,” Collins
said.

upcoming charity game for disadvantaged children. GOP House Whip Rep.
Steve Scalise was shot in the hip; two Capitol officers, who were acting

Not long after the news broke, Left-wing Twitter erupted with some of the

"suspected white supremacist" angle. (Rumor has it Nasheed once classified

So Rep. Steve Scalise, who once spoke at a white supremacist

house leadership considered self defense?"

Harris' writing has been featured at The Washington Post, Salon and The
New Republic, among other outlets.

In a now-deleted tweet, Harris also wrote: "Hearing 'David Duke without
the baggage' Steve Scalise is stable, but a lot of Americans die from
hospital errors so keep crossing your fing."

A technology writer and former Talent Show blogger said it would be
considered a "silver lining" if Republicans were indeed targeted and shot
at.

"If KKK support Steve [S]calise dies, the shooter deserves a holiday, true
leadership. Now the [T]rumps, [K]ush & Miller need to be 'transitioned,'"
wrote another Twitter user.

It's important to note that vitriol wasn't the sole reaction here, of

members affected by the violence.

A wave of liberal rage has marked the last 11 months since the rise and
subsequent election of President Donald Trump.

Antifa protestors clad in black masks shut down college campuses,
destroy property and indiscriminately attack those they disagree with,
whether women or the elderly. Meanwhile, CNN fires Kathy Griffin for
taking photos with a bloody replica of the president’s decapitated
head.

Amid this backdrop, The Huffington Post publishes an article calling
for the execution of Trump and “everyone assisting his agenda.”

Then, shots ring out as a man gorged on media hysteria attempts to
slaughter Republican congressmen while they practice for a charity
baseball game.



The aggression since Trump’s nomination is difficult to enumerate, but
nevertheless, The Daily Caller News Foundation pored over media reports
to compile a close but non-exhaustive list of violent acts against
conservatives in months following the Republican National Convention.

In creating the list, TheDCNF reviewed numerous articles detailing
attacks and violent threats against conservatives and Trump supporters.
While there are examples of anonymous threats, TheDCNF chose to include
only those that resulted in the cancelling of events and two to members
of Congress deemed credible. Some instances of violence between rival
protestors were not included as it was difficult to ascertain who
initiated the event.

Events Over Time:

A total of 30 Republican members of Congress have either been attacked
or revealed that they were the victim of a death threat since the
beginning of May.

May 8: Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested after stalking Rep. David Kustoff
(Tenn.) and trying to run him off the road. After pulling over, Wright
"began to scream and strike the windows on Kustoff's car and even
reached inside the vehicle."

May 9: Virginia Rep. Tom Garrett needed heavy security at a town hall
after receiving a series of death threats in May that police "deemed to
be credible and real."

"This is how we're going to kill your wife," one message said. Others
detailed how they would kill his children, and even his dog.

May 12: A town hall participant accosted North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer,
shoving fake dollar bills into his suit jacket. A Kramer supporter
grabbed the same man by the neck. Both men were ejected by law
enforcement, but neither were charged.

May 12: A Tucson, Ariz. school district employee was arrested by the FBI
for sending several death threats to Arizona Rep. Martha McSally. The
man threatened to shoot McSally and told her to "be careful" because her
days "were numbered."

May 21: Florida Rep. Ted Yoho described his office getting vandalized by
protesters. One female constituent left a voicemail on an office
answering machine, promising, "Next time I see you, I'm going to beat
your f**king ass."

June 14: Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), and Reps. Steve
Scalise (La.), Kevin Brady (Texas), Jack Bergman (Mich.), Mike Bishop
(Mich.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Roger Williams (Texas), John Moolenaar
(Mich.), Gary Palmer (Ala.), Chuck Fleischmann (Tenn.), Ron DeSantis
(Fla.), Barry Loudermilk (Ga.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Steve Pearce (N.M.),
Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Trent
Kelly (Miss.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), and Joe Barton (Texas) were attacked by
a gunman during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise, the House majority whip, was shot in the hip, and remains in
the hospital. Four others were injured, including a staffer for Williams
and two Capitol Police officers assigned to Scalise.

The same day, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received an email reading,
"One down, 216 to go."

June 17: Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner revealed that she had gotten five
death threats in the weeks leading up to the Scalise shooting. Wagner
said that protesters had been "vandalizing my home, showing up with
masks and gravestones, and laying down on my driveway and drawing chalk
outlines of dead bodies. Picketing my church at 8 and 10 o'clock Mass."

June 22: An Ohio man was arrested for leaving a voicemail threatening
the life and family of Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio).

"We're coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe
the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or
even you," the man said.

The same day, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz played a threatening voicemail he
had received on "Fox & Friends."

"I suggest you prepare for the battle motherf**ker, and the apocalypse,"
the caller yelled. "Because we are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a
rope around your neck, and hang you from a lamppost."

After a post featuring 20-year-old Makenna Greenwald cleaning President
Donald Trump's Hollywood star went viral, enraged leftists targeted the
young, pretty female online.

I mean, young females are supposed to hate President Trump and
vandalize his star, not clean it. How dare she.

"Stopped to clean [Donald Trump's] Hollywood Star. Nothing but respect
for MY President," Greenwald captioned photos of herself cleaning the
Hollywood Boulevard star.

In response, angry leftists predictably slandered Greenwald as a "white
supremacist," mocked her, and accused her of being a phony attention-
seeker.

Some thought it was clever to pose with Hollywood stars of celebs who
did not win the 2016 presidential election, using Greenwald's comment
about Trump being her president.

(Note: Trump is her president; not Viola Davis)

Speaking on Fox & Friends last week, the 20-year-old called for more
respect on both sides of the aisle, saying, “I think we should have
more respect from both sides of the aisle, and I was blown way by how
much disrespect I got for a simple act of cleaning up our president,
who is the highest office in the land. He should be respected, whether
it’s his Hollywood star or talking about him in public.”

Well, they were a lot more clever than this person, who got it wrong.
The "celebs" involved were ones who had played presidents in movies and
on TV, not ones who'd run for president last year and lost. Yeah, I
thought it was clever -- and funny, too.

Anti-Trump actress/comedian Rosie O'Donnell is at it again.

On Saturday, the rabid-leftist shared an online video game entitled "Push Trump
Off A Cliff Again." As you can guess, the point of the game is fairly simple--
to send the president off of a cliff.

Push Trump Off A Cliff Again https://t.co/YguB3aG8EP
— ROSIE (@Rosie) July 15, 2017

This isn't the first time Rosie has taken to social media to share heinous
anti-Trump content.

In November of 2016, Rosie shared an online video that suggested that Barron
Trump, the president's youngest son, has autism. After coming under fire for
the video, O'Donnell apologized to both Barron and his mother, Melania Trump.

We're not holding our breath for an apology this time around.

On Wednesday it was announced that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been
diagnosed with brain cancer. While most people of varying political
stripes expressed warm wishes for the McCain family, there were some
people who let their political tribalism get the better of them and
expressed glee over McCain's health condition or politicized McCain's
condition to further their own political beliefs.

Here were the eight worst responses to the news of McCain's brain
cancer.

1. Max Blumenthal. Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs tweeted out a common
sense sentiment:

Ben Jacobs
Pro tip: If your take on John McCain is anything besides "I
hope an American hero makes a quick and full recovery" you
should never tweet

Naturally, this was too much for the man who smeared Elie Wiesel after
his death:

Max Blumenthal
Shut up
https://twitter.com/bencjacobs/status/887845555359162368 …

Max Blumenthal
I have nothing critical to say about the legacy of John
McCain at the moment. @AbbyMartin already said it all here:
https://youtu.be/sPNxkQXT45I?list=PLC8C70C043A93984E

2. The "Beyonce professor" doesn't feel sorry for McCain.
Loading Image...

He also re-tweeted this:

Kimberly N. Foster
John McCain is going to get lots of very expensive medical
care for a condition that cannot be cured. He should have
that. Everyone should.

This is what a cold-hearted individual looks like.

3. Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer wants McCain to die.
https://twitter.com/KIR_bigg50/status/888058885801730048/photo/1

4. Reporter and photographer Joshua Albert tweeted an f-bomb toward
McCain.
https://twitter.com/yashar/status/887828255956488193/photo/1

5. Journalist Caitlin Johnstone wrote a lengthy post on Medium
elaborating her elation about McCain's brain tumor. On Monday,
Johnstone posted this flaming pile of garbage:

Caitlin Johnstone @caitoz
Please Just Fucking Die Already#JohnMcCain #Neocons
#Russiahttps://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/please-just-fucking-
die-already-acb3a879656e …

Following the news of McCain's brain cancer on Wednesday, Johnstone
doubled down on her flaming pile of garbage:

https://t.co/a8L7xYnGMy

Here is a snippet from this reprehensible post:

Let me make one thing perfectly clear to you, dear reader: If
you are saddened to learn that John McCain has been rendered
incapable of returning to the Senate by a disease to which he
will almost certainly succumb, it is only because you have
found a way to compartmentalize away from truly comprehending
the reality of what this man is and what he has done to the
world. In order to avoid the cognitive discomfort of deeply
recognizing the unspeakable horrors that the US war machine
has unleashed upon the world with McCain’s devoted assistance,
you’ve avoided looking directly at it, avoided considering it
with emotional and intellectual honesty. Dissociating from
the products of John McCain’s blood-saturated career has been
more psychologically comfortable for you than facing the
truth.

A lot of people were outraged by my article “Please Just
Fucking Die Already”, which was an express wish for what
will now surely come to pass thanks to glioblastoma
multiforme, and many more have been calling for my head
since his diagnosis was made public. Every single one of
these people, without exception, has remained willfully
ignorant of the direct consequences of John McCain’s war
efforts. If these people could be strapped down and forced
Clockwork Orange-style to look straight at all the human
carnage and suffering caused by the military aggression
McCain has spent his miserable life promoting, they would
unquestionably share my sentiments.

Words cannot properly convey as to how awful this is.

6. Writer Charles Clymer went on a lengthy Twitter thread in which he
essentially said that McCain is morally depraved.

Charles Clymer??????
1/ I'm heartbroken by the news that Sen. John McCain has an
aggressive form of brain cancer. I'm also concerned at what
I'm seeing. (thread)

12/ Instead, we witnessed McCain make strange bedfellows with
the worst factions of the GOP in order to get the nomination
in 2008.

13/ Time and time again, McCain sold off bits of his integrity
for a shot at power. And this was early on in the '00s.

16/ There have been other moments when McCain spoke up when it
was needed, and he should be credited for that, as well.

17/ But folks, I simply can't stomach this avalanche of "man
of character" statements that I'm seeing about McCain.

18/ We've needed Sen. McCain over the last 9 years, and he's
largely been missing. He has failed to speak up, time and time
again.

19/ He has demonstrated his highest priority in the past
decade was maintaining some power among the GOP's ever-
rightward-shifting base.

20/ Not standing up to bigotry and the increasingly-alarming-
and-tragic evolution of the GOP to something resembling a Neo
Nazi movement.

21/ We needed Senator McCain to take a stand against Trump,
last year, and he failed to do so in order to preserve his
political career.

22/ I will always respect Sen. McCain for his service to our
country, but I cannot stand the idea that's a substitute for
morality now.

23/ I ask that people be mindful of this. You can express
support for Sen. McCain's health without putting him on a
pedestal.

24/ I worry about the message it sends when a senator can
enable horrible things under their watch and still be called
"a man of character".

25/ I don't think it's asking too much to send support to the
McCains without erasing the Senator's significant--yes,
significant--faults.

If your message following the news of McCain's brain cancer is, "I wish
him and his family well, but..." you're doing it wrong. Especially when
you attack the man's character, as Clymer did.

7. Matt Yglesias, the king of idiocy, used McCain's brain cancer to
push his leftist beliefs.

Matthew Yglesias
Idea: The compassion Senators feel for John McCain and his
family, but applied to all Americans who have health care
needs.

Idea: you shouldn't politicize somebody dealing with brain cancer.

8. Shareblue contributor Matthew Chapman also got in on the
politicization.

Matthew Chapman
I hesitate to dip my toe into this, but...

John McCain has a fighting chance because of tax-funded
healthcare he wants no one else to have.

Don't misunderstand me: he deserves the best quality care to
treat and, if needed, palliate him.

But so does everyone else. Through ACA.

I am very much hoping that the doctors can make Senator
McCain better. Because that's what the liberal cause is
about. Healthcare for all.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) compared President Trump’s and his supporters’
attacks on the “fake news” media to attacks that the Nazis carried out
against the press during a House Committee on the Judiciary hearing on
Monday.

“Now we see the statistic that Gallup says just 27 pecrect of American
public expresses strong confidence in newspapers including 46 percent of
Democrats and 13 percent of Republicans, and you can track that, you can
track that to attacks on the press by people like President Trump and by
others,” Nadler remarked. “In recent years, I think especially the
conservative media have tried to disparage the press and they’ve had some
success.”

“The precedent now, where the President of the United States keeps
talking about the lying press, the fake news and everything’s fake news”
Nadler continued. “You look back at the Nazis who talked about the
lügenpresse, the lying press, to destroy the faith in any information
other than from President Trump or his apologists.”

The hearing was supposed to tackle the issue of the state of press
freedom in 21st century America.

Kevin Allred, the “Beyonce Professor” who attacked John McCain after
McCain revealed he had brain cancer, tweeted “If I see any Trump bumper
stickers on the road today, my brakes will go out and I’ll run you off
the road,” and also tweeted, “Will the 2nd amendment be as cool when I
buy a gun and start shooting at random white people or no …?”, has been
fired from a college after he tweeted that he wished someone would
shoot President Trump.

After his tweet was noticed and the blowback began, Allred tried to
defend his tweet:

It wasn’t enough, apparently; Montclair State had seen enough and fired
him. That prompted this series of tweets on Monday night:

Trump has threatened:
-the people of NYC (anyone on 5th ave)
-Hillary Clinton
-anyone approached by police
when will FBI investigate this?

not to mention the millions of Americans he's hell bent on
stripping health insurance from. he wants Americans dead.

how is my one tweet using a hyperbolic expression worse than
what "the president" himself is doing day after day????
— Kevin Allred (@KevinAllred) August 1, 2017

And the final humiliation:

so FYI...Montclair State has fired me before I even started
teaching there. congrats to the Trump trolls. but you're
still not special.

A Louisiana man entrusted to protect the people in his community has
resigned from his position after sharing a disgusting, threatening meme
on Facebook.

Wayne Welsh, an assistant chief at the Estherwood Police Department,
shared a post Sunday depicting a woman holding a young girl’s head under
water in a bathtub, with the caption, “When your daughters [sic] first
crush is a little negro boy.”

Welsh, whose Facebook page is now private, appeared to be surprised at
the backlash before he apologized on Monday, according to KATC.

“It’s not against the law to share something on Facebook. It’s social
media. Internet,” he posted, before backpedaling with an apology. “Well,
I’m sorry for what happen. Ya [sic] have a blessed day.”

That was the nastiest moment of Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa's early morning
town hall in the Northern California town of Chico on Monday.

The wish was uttered by an older man who criticized LaMalfa for voting for the
House GOP plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. He was also holding a pink
sign that read “Lackey for the Rich!"

The open hostility and intransigence inside the Chico Elks Lodge came as the
political divide in the country has grown more inflamed, with Trump’s election
unleashing a wave of both liberal activism and conservative empowerment.

As a result, Washington’s deeply partisan fights over issues such as health
care, immigration and environmental protections have followed members of
Congress home, turning once sedate town halls into in-your-face venting
sessions that in left-leaning California have Republican House members on the
defensive.

LaMalfa stood his ground on stage as person after person ripped into him for
his votes and positions on healthcare and climate change, as well as for his
unyielding support for President Trump.

A few speakers asked LaMalfa to resign, including one dressed up as the
“Wicked Witch of the West Coast.”

Most comments and questions during the hour-long town hall were fairly
cordial, although they were laced with plenty of boos and catcalls.

Norma Wilcox, a retired nurse who lives in Chico, also questioned LaMalfa’s
healthcare vote. Wilcox told LaMalfa the House plan would take away healthcare
for millions of Americans while providing tax breaks to the rich.

“I am open to new ideas,” LaMalfa told her, describing the House GOP bill as a
placeholder that everyone expected to be improved during negotiations with the
Senate. (The Senate's healthcare efforts now appear dead.)

But the Richvale congressman, who represents California’s massive 1st
Congressional District in the northeast corner of the state, said he will
support only a new healthcare program that provides affordable coverage to
middle-class Americans.

LaMalfa said Obamacare is quickly become unaffordable and unsustainable, with
premium costs rising and the number of insurance companies offering coverage
declining.

“People across the board are being hurt by this,” LaMalfa said.

When shouts and boos rained down on him, he chastised the crowd saying, “I
have the mic folks. Yep, boo away.”

Ann Sisney of Chico told LaMalfa that her son, William, died of an opioid
overdose two years ago. She held up a picture of the 19-year-old, asked the
congressman to take it, and told him more people will die if GOP leadership in
Congress gets its way on healthcare.

“These are life-and-death decisions that you are making,” Sisney told him.

LaMalfa assured her that Congress was working to find funds to address the
nationwide opioid epidemic.

The Republican congressman also raised the ire of the crowd when he was asked
about climate change and the degraded air quality in this stretch of Northern
California.

“I don’t buy the idea that man-made activity is responsible,” LaMalfa said
bluntly.

The crowd of several hundred did include some LaMalfa supporters, though most
stayed silent.

Ron Jones, 67, of Paradise said he’s been to a few of LaMalfa’s town halls and
all have been dominated by his critics.

“Most of the time people want to ... complain,” said Jones, a self-described
conservative, after the event ended. “The people who support him are quietly
in the background.”

LaMalfa does indeed have a lot of support in the district that also
overwhelmingly voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton in last year's
presidential election. LaMalfa won his last election by almost 15%, and though
he has attracted a few Democratic challengers, the district is not considered
a battleground for 2018.

Unlike many California Republican members of Congress, LaMalfa hasn't shied
away from holding town halls, though it's rarely a pleasant experience for
him. He held one in Nevada City in March and another in April in Oroville. No
other California Republicans are scheduled to hold town halls during their
August recess.

Near the end of Monday's town hall, a woman criticized LaMalfa for inviting
only Christian pastors to provide invocations at his town halls and other
events, and urged him to include religious leaders of all faiths.

“If you want to have your own town hall, you can invite whoever you like,”
LaMalfa told her.

NY Times Reporter Admits Antifa Protesters In Charlottesville Were
'Hate-Filled' And Violent Before Left Forces Her To Backtrack

"I saw club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led
out of the park."

New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg made the mistake of
admitting that along with the abhorrent, violent, white supremacists
who terrorized Charlottesville over the weekend, many Antifa
protesters were also enacting "hate-filled" violence, as they've
done in several other cities in recent months. For noting that the
"hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right" — citing "club-
wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the
park" — Stolberg was hammered online, even after repenting and
issuing a correction that depicted the violent left in more heroic
terms.

"A few wrap-it-up thoughts from Charlottesville: 1. Striking how
many of the white nationalists were young people, almost entirely
men," she wrote in a series of tweets Sunday. "2. The hard left
seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding 'antifa'
beating white nationalists being led out of the park[.] 3. Among my
unanswered questions: police response. Why did things get out of
hand so quickly? Could violence have been prevented?"

2. The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw

— Sheryl Gay Stolberg (@SherylNYT) August 13, 2017

3. Among my unanswered questions: police response. Why did
things get out of hand so quickly? Could violence have been
prevented? 3/3
— Sheryl Gay Stolberg (@SherylNYT) August 13, 2017

For pointing out that the "Antifa" were, once again, resorting to
violence to "protest" and thus exhibiting "hate," Stolberg was
immediately corrected online, one responder warning her, "Don't buy
into the false equivalency like Trump and sympathizers. Only one
group would commit genocide against the other if given power."

Remember that officials tried to change the venue to a
more manageable location due to the growing numbers and
likelihood for violence

2) Don't buy into the false equivalency like Trump and
sympathizers. Only one group would commit genocide against
the other if given power
— Andrew K (@imscavok) August 13, 2017

In response, Stolberg apologized and noted that she had made a
"correction" about her "hate-filled" comment.

Yes, fair enough. See my TL for a correction
— Sheryl Gay Stolberg (@SherylNYT) August 13, 2017

And here's the "correction" she was referring to: "Rethinking this.
Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to
hate," she wrote, casting the left's violence in heroic terms.

Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled.
They were standing up to hate. https://t.co/3O9QpC0NQ3
— Sheryl Gay Stolberg (@SherylNYT) August 13, 2017

But that wasn't good enough. Stolberg's statement was met with
strong rebuke from the social justice left who accused her of
"normalizing Nazis" and drawing a "false equivalence" between the
violent, racist white nationalists and the violent, fascistic
Antifa. A few examples of the responses:

Why are you normalizing nazis?
— SocialJuliaWarrior (@Pinkham_Artemis) August 13, 2017

Bad bad bad take. A leftist woman is dead because she
protested nazis. How dare you think you can compare them
— Rachel Moore (@RachelFlanaganM) August 13, 2017

Jesus Christ exactly!!! I'm not about to cry that nazis
are getting hurt. Too much moderate bullshit if we allow
nazis to do their thing
— Rachel Moore (@RachelFlanaganM) August 13, 2017

One critic used a Martin Luther King quote to bash "moderate"
Stolberg:

pic.twitter.com/7tc49vEN8R
— Jeff (@JahnSzolo) August 13, 2017

That set off this quick exchange:

I agree with MLK's statement but BLM methods are violent
just like KKK/neo-nazi. There's still a NAACP. I support
the NAACP instead of BLM.
— Brian (@neutrino78x) August 13, 2017

Yeah I didn't hear about any neo-nazis getting killed?
This false equivalency BS has to stop.
— Jeff (@JahnSzolo) August 14, 2017

And here's another back and forth went, with one man saying the BLM
and Antifa engage in violence like the KKK and neo-Nazis and thus
are "anti-American terrorists," with two twitterers responding by
comparing the Antifa to the Allied Forces:

Antifa and BLM deserve to be met with violence if they
engage in violence.... no different than KKK and neo Nazi
— Denny Butcher (@butch72_07) August 13, 2017

The people who wore that uniform before you would be
disgusted to know you condemn those who fight nazis. You
should be ashamed.
— Rachel Moore (@RachelFlanaganM) August 14, 2017

BLM and Antifa are anti-American terrorists.... they attack
anyone that doesn't agree with them and they should be wiped
out....
— Denny Butcher (@butch72_07) August 14, 2017

Wonder how WW2 would have gone if no one fought Nazis?
— Hairy Meatman (@joeshabadoo17) August 14, 2017

President Trump is also being hammered for making a similar "false
equivalency" in his initial response to the horrific events on
Saturday, condemning "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides."

The simple truth here is that the despicable racists of the white
nationalist movement who take to violence should be rounded up by
the police, as should those on the hard left who resort to violence,
as they've done in Berkeley and Charlottesville and several other
cities in recent months. Excusing either is just encouraging more
violence.

Jason Kessler, organizer of the alt-right Charlottesville protest, gloated over the 32-year-old's murder on social media after she was run over and killed in a shocking attack at the "Unite The Right" event in Virginia on August 12th.

Kessler, tweeted: "Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Communists have killed 94 million. Looks like it was payback time."

The offensive post also contained a link to a defamatory story about Ms Heyer on the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer.

Later he lied claiming his account was hacked but the following day he admitted the lie blaming it on a mixture of alcohol and prescription drugs. "I sometimes wake up having done strange things I don't remember.

A Missouri state senator said in a now-deleted Facebook post that she
hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post
which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”

She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who
claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.

A Missouri State Senator from St. Louis has now called for
the assassination of @realDonaldTrump. Keep it classy
@MariaChappelleN.

Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to a reporter with St. Louis TV station KMOX
that she posted the comment.

“I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been
deleted,” she said.

Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, represents a district in a St. Louis
suburb.

It is not clear exactly what prompted Chappelle-Nadal’s comment. But it
was likely made in response to a discussion about the ongoing
controversy over Trump’s comments about the violence in
Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.

According to KMOX, U.S. Secret Service in St. Louis is looking into
Chappelle-Nadal’s post.

State and national politicians called on Chappelle-Nadal to resign over
the remarks, but she says she has no plans to do so.

Stephen Webber, the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, called
the comments “indefensible.”

“All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of
political violence in America — and the Missouri Democratic Party will
absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President,”
he said.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said that the comments were “outrageous”
and that Chappelle-Nadal “should resign.”

Chapelle-Nadal told the Springfield News-Leader that she regretted her
post but said she has no plans to resign.

“Hell no!” she said when asked by a reporter if she will quit her
position.

New York Times reporters Thomas Fuller, Alan Feuer and Serge Kovaleski
are responsible for this admiring profile of the far-left Brownshirts
called antifa: “‘Antifa’ members are ready to literally fight right-
wingers.”

Members of antifa have shown no qualms about using their
fists, sticks or canisters of pepper spray to meet an array
of right-wing antagonists whom they call a fascist threat to
U.S. democracy.

Is antifa violent? Well, that depends on what the meaning of “violent” is:

“You need violence in order to protect nonviolence,” she said.
“That’s what’s very obviously necessary right now.”

***

“When you look at this grave and dangerous threat — and the
violence it has already caused — is it more dangerous to do
nothing and tolerate it or should we confront it?” Sabaté
said. “Their existence itself is violent … so I don’t think
using force or violence to oppose them is unethical.”

The mere existence of supporters of President Trump is violent, so it
is OK to attack them with baseball bats. The Times reporters show no
sign of disagreeing with this “reasoning.”

Antifa activists have engaged with people who were less than
outright neo-Nazis, raising questions about whether there is
such a thing as legitimate political violence.

Some antifa members insist that they are merely reacting to
aggression. “The essence of their message is violence,” Jed
Holtz, an antifa organizer in New York, said of his right-wing
foes. “The other side” — his side — “is just responding.”

Here is a photo of antifa responding to a violent window in Washington, D.C. during President Trump’s inauguration:

This violent car was one of many set on fire by antifa during the

Berkeley it must have been violent:

encounter anyone violent:

Just think how violent this guy must have been!
It took four masked antifas to beat him up:

Antifa is nothing more or less than a fascist organization. Hitler’s
Brownshirts had nothing on them. I thought their childish trick of
naming themselves the opposite of what they really are wouldn’t fool
anyone, but apparently it has fooled the New York Times. Or maybe
the Times is just on their side.

A black supporter of President Donald Trump was punched in the face
after leaving the president’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona Wednesday
night.

A few thousand protesters showed up outside the event, and things were
mostly peaceful until the end of the rally, when Trump supporters
filtered out of the Phoenix Convention Center and police had to use
tear gas to manage the crowds.

One violent clash between Trump supporters and protesters was caught on
video by New York Times correspondent Simon Romero, showing a pickup
truck packed with MAGA-hat-wearers arguing with protesters surrounding
the truck.

In the video, one of the MAGA-hatters, a black man, restrains his
friend following a shouting match with protesters, and the friend
eventually gets into the driver’s seat of the truck while the black man
hops in the bed with two others.

The driver appears to turn his wheels and attempt to drive into
protesters on the sidewalk, causing a commotion. He then continues on
the road slowly, until one sign-bearing protester charges up to the bed
of the truck and punches the black man repeatedly in the face.

The truck stops briefly and reverses, before eventually driving away.

Watch the scuffle above.

The clashes at Trump’s rally come just one week after a white
nationalist rally in defense of Confederate monuments in
Charlottesville turned violent when a neo-Nazi plowed his car into a
group of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring scores more.

Trump defended his widely decried response to the Charlottesville
terror attack in his speech on Tuesday night, blaming the “crooked
media” for painting him as a racist.

There’s a good reason that the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, which
is holding a rally at Crissy Field in San Francisco on Saturday,
better watch their step.

Leftist activists are planning to smear the field with dog poop.

Tuffy Tuffington, a 45-year-old artist and designer, created a
Facebook event page to promulgate his idea of San Franciscans taking
their dogs to Crissy Field for a stroll so the dogs could fertilize
the field. He said he was walking his dogs when the idea struck him.
He said, “I just had this image of alt-right people stomping around in
the poop. It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we
didn’t have to engage with them face to face.”

Tuffington’s idea took off; some people excited by the idea responded
by stating they would save their dogs’ poop for days, then bring bags
of the excrement to the field. The group of volunteers is also
planning to meet at the field on Sunday to “clean up the mess and hug
each other.”

Other activists plan to confront Patriot Prayer by offering them
flowers for their hair. Shannon Bolt, a behavior scientist who works
at Crissy Field, told The Guardian that if security keeps the two
groups apart, “We will have to offer our Flowers Against Fascism to
them symbolically.”

Patriot Prayer has conducted free speech events in the Pacific
Northwest. Despite the effort by House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi to
label Patriot Prayer a white supremacist hate group, even the
notoriously left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reportedly
does not consider Patriot Prayer to be a hate group. The SPLC reported
that at a recent rally, its organizer, Joey Gibson, shouted from the
stage, “F*** white supremacists! F*** neo-Nazis! ”

Gibson told Fox News that Saturday’s rally revolves around “a
philosophy about promoting love and peace but doing it in a way that’s
respectful. It’s about building bridges,” adding he wants to bring
members of the radical Left group Antifa “out of the darkness.”

This is pretty much what happened some 20 years ago when a local Ku
Klux Klan chapter (Mississippi?) enrolled in the local Adopt-A-Highway
program.

It was quickly revoked when the Highways Dept discovered people were
driving from 30-40 miles away to dump their trash on the road!

Antifa Has A New Cell In Philly, And They’re Calling For Property
Seizures, Violence On Police, And All-Out Revolution
Posted By Ian Miles Cheong

An armed Antifa group is launching a new cell in Philadelphia, with
support from the “alt-left” alternative media.

The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in
Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls
for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed
insurrection.

Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News
have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary
Abolitionist Movement, calling on their readers to donate to a
Fundrazr account for the creation of the new cell.

The press release the group published in far-left media is filled with
hyperbolic claims about how “mosques are being ruthlessly bombed” and
how “LGBTQ are being battered.”

“The destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish
in the plantations of the modern day slave system,” the group states.

Taking pride in the “legacy” of “Philadelphia’s rich revolutionary
tradition,” RAM cites Mumia Abu Jamal, the Black Panther activist who
shot and killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.

It also cites Russell Shoats, who shot a police officer in the back
five times in 1970. Similar to Antifa, the actions of the Black
Panthers have been described as having a “very undefined purpose of
assaulting police officers.”

Like other Antifa groups, RAM claims to oppose the usual -isms and
white supremacy, but a quick look at the organization’s “Political
Foundation” page, as highlighted by Far Left Watch, notes the
inclusion of several alarming points, including the “Abolition of
Gender,” and the “Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy.”

The latter calls on members to “expropriate” or “take away” goods,
lands, and tools to “begin the revolutionary process.” Expropriation
is another way of saying “seize” or “steal.”

The organization models itself after the so-called Rojava Revolution,
a leftist guerilla movement currently active in northern Syria. RAM
states that the communists offer a “foundation in communal and council
based political organization and militant defense.”

The organizations within the Rojava Revolution are currently involved
in combat against ISIS.

Far Left Watch notes that RAM has been hosting a variety of anti-
police workshops including a “Legal Training” workshop, a class on the
“Introduction to Anarchism,” and one called “Our Enemies in Blue,”
which deals with anti-police action–or how to handle police officers
during violent clashes.

Despite active calls for violence against law enforcement and
revolution against the government, the liberal media has been
surprisingly lenient in its coverage of Antifa, depicting them as
righteous crusaders against

An army of anarchists in black clothing and masks routed a small group of
right-wing demonstrators who had gathered in a Berkeley park Sunday to
rail against the city’s famed progressive politics, driving them out —
sometimes violently — while overwhelming a huge contingent of police
officers.

Hundreds of officers tried to maintain calm in and around Martin Luther
King Jr. Civic Center Park before the 1 p.m. “No to Marxism in Berkeley”
rally, putting up barricades, searching bags and confiscating sticks,
masks, pepper spray and even water bottles. The goal was to head off the
type of clashes that sprang from similar rallies in the city earlier this
year.

But once again, counterdemonstrators frustrated efforts by police, who
numbered about 400. As the crowd swelled to several times that size,
officers stepped aside and allowed hundreds of people angered by the
presence of the right-wing rally to climb over the barriers into the park,
said Officer Jennifer Coats, a spokeswoman for Berkeley police.

The masked counterprotesters, often referred to as antifa or antifascists,
significantly outnumbered the people who had come for the rally, many of
whom wore red clothing indicating support for President Trump. The
anarchists chased away the right-wingers, and in one case four or five
pummeled a man with fists and sticks before a radio host for Reveal, Al
Letson, jumped in to shield the victim. Anarchists also attacked reporters
who documented their actions.

By the time the confrontations wound down in midafternoon, police had
arrested 13 people, including one for assault with a deadly weapon, Coats
said. Most were accused of bringing banned items into the park. Six people
reported non-life-threatening injuries, Coats said, including two taken to
hospitals.

In one of many incidents caught on video, police protected Joey Gibson,
the leader of the conservative group Patriot Prayer, who had canceled a
rally Saturday at Crissy Field in San Francisco after city leaders
criticized the event plans as inciting white nationalists.

The footage shows that Gibson backed away from a mob of black-clad
aggressors who swore, hit him with a stick and shouted, “Fascists go
home!” Gibson leaped over a concrete barrier before being chased into the
embrace of riot-gear-clad cops.

The violence in the park remains under investigation, and police asked
witnesses to report all injuries and submit any videos. After past
protests, videos helped police make arrests, Coats said.

Members of the extremist left-wing movement Antifa and the Democratic
Socialists of America swarmed the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center
Park in Berkeley, Calif. in a demonstration against a “March Against
Marxism” rally that never happened.

Black-clad belligerents carrying red flags reportedly assaulted
bystanders and turned their ire on largely passive police officers who
were standing by to monitor the situation. Many participants called for
the overthrow of the U.S. government. Some carried rainbow banners with
recent tweets by Chelsea Manning like “We Got This.”

The “March Against Marxism” was a planned protest that had nothing to do
with the alt-right, but it was canceled after receiving threats from the
militant leftist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). BAMN claimed it
was a “neo-Nazi” rally, but the rally itself was organized by a
transgender woman and other like-minded people who opposed the spread of
Marxism in Berkeley.

Despite the cancellation, some Marchers showed up to interact with
Antifa, but were harassed and assaulted.

I have never seen so many members of #antifa in one place.
No signs of police in the fray. “Our park!” they are chanting.

Footage of the violence on Sunday erupted on social media after a mob of
Antifa overran a small group of protesters. Police were reportedly
issued the order to stand down and retreated and the situation only
escalated from there.

In various clips, Antfa members can be seen assaulting individuals they
described as “right-wing nationalists” and the “alt-right.” However, no
identification has been made of these people to confirm if they were in
any way affiliated with right-wing groups.

Journalists were not spared from violence, as Antifa members attempted
to seize phones and cameras by force. Antifa members can be heard
yelling “Take his camera! Take his phone!”

A white Antifa thug could be charged with a hate crime against a black
Trump supporter after allegedly assaulting him at a rally in California
over the weekend.

Laguna Beach police have arrested 20-year-old Richard Losey, who is
seen on video sucker punching the Trump supporter during an America
First! rally in Laguna Beach on Sunday. The rally drew 2,500 people,
according to the Orange County Register, and has resulted in four
arrests.

of Trump supporter Sunday. Charged w/ battery + terroristic
threats @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/du7ZwGgxXh
— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) August 24, 2017

“The video shows a black man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ shirt
hit squarely in the face by another man,” said Sgt. Jim Cota.

The victim, R.C. Maxwell, was talking peacefully with a group of people
at the rally when Losey snuck up and assaulted him. Losey then
disappeared into the crowd and fled before police could catch up to
him.

https://youtu.be/LpdjV4vrmiA

Police arrested Losey, who hails from Lancaster, Ohio, Tuesday evening
and charged him with battery and making terroristic threats.

On Sunday, Laguna Beach police also arrested Samuel Gonzales
on suspicion of resisting and delaying arrest; Harlan William
Pankau on suspicion of weapons charge for carrying a knife; and
Trevail Dominique Johnson was arrested on suspicion of assault.

Laguna Beach police detectives were able to track Losey down Tuesday
night as he was trying to buy a bus pass back to Ohio.

Maxwell told FOX 11 that the attack was unprovoked and racially
motivated.

"If the optics were completely different and I was a black
lives matter supporter and I was attacked on the Trump side
of a protest I would be in the spotlight on CNN right now,"
Maxwell said. "I went over to the left side to see if I could
engage them with dialogue and I was instantly encircled by
the so called anti fascists."

In the days after the assault, Losey appeared to identify
himself on Twitter, admitting that he punched Maxwell because
he wouldn't stop talking about Donald Trump, and replying
"arrest me, lmfao" when someone called for his arrest.

Losey has apparently deleted those tweets and now his Twitter feed
consists almost entirely of selfies like these:

Richard D. Losey assaulted @rcmaxwellgop because he was a
Donald Trump supporter @ Laguna Beach California rally.
Arrest him!
Lock him up! pic.twitter.com/BqOSo98ojc
— Jonathan Lee Riches (@xxxlawsuitxxx) August 22, 2017

Maxwell said, "I think the fact that I'm a black conservative causes a
lot of problems for the left side because there's no way they can
really resolve that according to their narrative of what they think
Trump supporters are, so I think that was a bit triggering to the other
side. _I was getting lots of specific comments like you're a sellout,
you're an Uncle Tom_."

FOX 11 corroborated Maxwell's version of events, saying that their
reporter tried to interview him on Sunday after he was shoved by a
counter-protester.

Shortly after the interview began, Maxwell was surrounded
before being verbally harassed.

"I was in a pinball machine full of Antifa, it was a little scary but I
was being bold and not adversarial," Maxwell said. "You just wanted to
ask me a couple questions about what was happening and we couldn't even
conduct an interview. Dialogue is being shut down and free speech is
being attacked and it's being attacked by _so called peaceful
protesters under the name anti fascists_."

https://youtu.be/9iIkJhZwWls

According to the OC Register, "Losey was booked into Orange County Jail
on $50,000 bail on suspicion of misdemeanor battery with a hate crime
enhancement."

[Cue the usual excuse-making for the alt-left...]

Dear Prudence, an advice column in Slate whose author is Mallory
Ortberg, decided to publish a chat from a woman whose girlfriend
refused to donate money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey because she
didn’t want to help any victims who are Trump voters. The girlfriend
was perfectly fine donating money to the Humane Society so animals
could benefit.

The letter read:

I come from the Houston area and have been heartbroken about
the damage and scenes from Harvey. I decided to donate $250
and asked my girlfriend if she would match it. She agreed,
and then when I asked if she had given to the Red Cross or
someone else, I learned that she donated to the Humane Society.
I know she’s absolutely nuts about animals, especially our
own dogs, but to give to animals when people are in trouble
seems heartless to me. She’s much more politically active than
I am, and I finally asked if she did that to avoid the
possibility of giving money to someone who voted for Trump,
and she admitted that was one of the reasons. I think that’s
awful, and we’ve been fighting about it ever since. She thinks
as a gay woman I should see her side, but I just can’t. There
are good people everywhere, and she went out of her way to
avoid helping. We’ve been fighting about this ever since. Who
is right?

Ortberg responded:

It took me a few times to parse this letter, because at first
I thought your girlfriend was somehow concerned that someone
in the Red Cross might have voted for Trump, but it sounds
like she is actually reluctant to support human flood victims
on the off chance that they may have voted for him, which is
nonsensical and unconscionable. “As a society, we should help
victims of natural disasters” is a complete sentence that does
not require additional clauses, addenda, or stipulations. This
is worth fighting with your girlfriend about, and you should
trongly oppose her bizarre moral calculus.

Slate seems to be of two minds vis-à-vis the Red Cross; Ortberg
supports giving to it, but Jonathan Katz, who ran the Associated Press
bureau from 2007 until 2011 in Haiti, wrote a column Monday in which he
decried donating to the organization, pointing out its failed efforts
in Haiti and its failed efforts in response to Hurricane Katrina in
2005. Katz wrote:

Worse than what we know is what we don’t. The ARC, which
boasts annual revenues of more than $2.6 billion, is
notoriously opaque when it comes to what it does with the
money it raises for disasters. It has never produced a
meaningful breakdown of its spending after the Haiti
earthquake. If you look at RedCross.org right now, you’ll
see a prominent link inviting you to “make a difference” by
donating to its Harvey effort. But nowhere does it say what
it will do with the money. A tiny video shows empty cots in a
shelter.

[Didn't they mishandle donations for 9-11 victims?]

My understanding is that a donation to help Harvey victims would be
better sent to Operation USA, which is very well thought of. As for
the animal shelter thing, whatever the girlfriend's motivation is, the
shelters could use the money. Also, keep in mind that money is
fungible, and if you're helping the animals, that frees up funding and
time to help the people. No harm done.

But, yes, the girlfriend is nuts.

Anthony Bourdain, host of CNN's Part Unknown, told a TMZ reporter that
he would serve President Donald Trump “hemlock,” a highly poisonous
plant if given the opportunity.

Bourdain was approached by the reporter outside LAX airport and asked
if he would do a food show in North Korea, to which he emphatically
replied “no” — as he proceeded to go on a foul-mouthed rant about North
Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, calling him a “chubby, evil little F**k.”

However, when asked what he would serve if he were to cater a dinner
for President Donald Trump, Bourdain replied “hemlock.”

https://youtu.be/gwxBVX7HZtU

Hemlock is a well-known poisonous plant found in North America and
Europe that can be highly lethal if ingested by humans. It serves
basically only one purpose: as poison.

Bourdain is certainly not shy about his hatred for President Trump as
he said last year he will never eat in any Trump restaurant because of
how much he hated Trump.

“I will never eat in his restaurant,” Bourdain said in December 2016.
“I have utter contempt for him, utter and complete contempt.”

Bourdain’s comments are just the latest in a pattern of hateful
comments and actions by CNN employees aimed at the president.

Reza Aslan, host of CNN’s Believer with Reza Aslan, tweeted earlier
this year that President Trump was “a piece of s---" and "an
embarrassment to mankind.”

Most notorious, however, was Kathy Griffin’s beheading video where she
showed a severed head of the president. Griffin had co-hosted a New
Year’s Eve show on CNN with Anderson Cooper prior to the incident —
however, it took the network 24 hours to condemn her behavior and
announce that she would no longer be hosting the show.

announcing her fate should not be an issue.

BTW try Google-imaging "holding Hillary's severed head" (w/o the

they suffered a job loss.

A restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, is being forced to shut down after
posting support for President Donald Trump and standing for the national
anthem on Facebook.

The two owners of Cup it Up American Grill, Jay Warren and Christopher
Smith, posted:

https://wflafm.iheart.com/content/2017-10-15-restaurant-forced-to-close-
after-supporting-trump/#

The post went viral, likely because it stated their bold support for the
president, standing for the national anthem, and repealing Obamacare. But
since then, the restaurant has received nonstop threats and received so
many phone calls that several employees quit their jobs.

The post has since been deleted and the restaurant owners have
apologized.

Ron Sanchez, the father of one of the workers who worked at the
restaurant, stated:

“People threatened to burn down the restaurant with the owners
in it. It’s a crazy world we’re in."

On October 9, the restaurant announced it would close down because of the
safety concerns. Signs outside the restaurant read:

We have made a decision to close our doors indefinitely as of
today, Monday, October 9, 2017. The safety of our employees, and
our families is of great concern and is our #1 priority at this
time.

We would also like to extend a special thanks to our Military
and First responders. Thank you all and God Bless.

On Saturday, the restaurant posted to Facebook with an update, stating
they wanted their supporters to donate to Veterans and first responders
and were not taking any donations for themselves:

Cup It Up American Grill
From the Owners of Cup It Up American Grill:
We would like to give a very special thanks to those of you
who took the time to send us your well wishes with overwhelming
support and prayers. We have received numerous requests from
individuals wanting to make donations via a Go Fund Me page or
PayPal account. We do not and will not have either. We truly
appreciate your kind hearts; however, we would rather see your
dollars go to our Veterans and First Responders in the links ...

Local supporters of the restaurant told ABC 15 that the area was near a
university, which meant the people nearby were “liberal and young.”

Brilliant business plan!

But what else would you expect lying Trump supporters to say.
When in doubt, make something up... the morons will believe it.

NRA Spokeswoman Forced to Move After She Received Death Threats
http://freebeacon.com/issues/nra-spokeswoman-forced-move-death-threats/

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch announced Sunday on
Twitter that her family had been forced to move suddenly after she
received multiple death threats from gun control advocates.

Loesch, a conservative commentator and syndicated talk radio host,
followed the announcement of her family's move by condemning the way
politically progressive society has treated not just her, but
conservative women as a whole.

In the wake of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct allegations, many
women are telling their stories of assault on Twitter, using the
hashtag, #MeToo. Loesch used the hashtag to tell her story of how she is
being threatened for her views on guns and the Second Amendment.

What I'd like to know is why Dana Loesch thinks the (alleged) threats
against her by anonymous cowards online are in any way equivalent to
the proven and grievous misconduct of Hollywood producers who routinely
rape and molest young actresses.

10/21/17 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Issuing a defiant call to arms to grassroots Republicans, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon railed Friday against dangerous “global elites” and the Silicon Valley “lords of technology” whom he said are robbing U.S. citizens of jobs, wealth and opportunity.
Bannon’s attacks on establishment politicians were generally well received.
When he mentioned Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain — the former POW whose name was met with boos — someone in the audience yelled, “Hang him!”
John McCain, the war hero who was tortured for 5 years in a Vietnamese
prison camp, is in the last days of his battle with an aggressive form
of brain cancer.

Nobody spoke up for McCain, and nobody left the meeting in protest. Nobody.

It doesn't get any worse than this. Republicans should be ashamed of
themselves.
But they aren't.

Identical content was posted at identical times from two supposedly
different "people".

Two posts exists - one from Ubi and one from NoBody
One in rec.arts.tv and one in rec.arts.sf.tv.

They were posted at the same time, right down the the second.
They were identical in content, right down to the punctuation.

How can that be done by DIFFERENT people?
Easy... it CAN'T.

And, smoke and mirrors aside, you've never explained how it's possible
that it ever could.
You were caught dead-to-rights, and that's it.

that it ever could.
You were caught dead-to-rights, and that's it.
I laugh every time you make this claim because it simply is not true.
It's always fun to find someone this foolish on Usenet who is
absolutely convinced of something that is dead wrong.

NRA Spokeswoman Forced to Move After She Received Death Threats
http://freebeacon.com/issues/nra-spokeswoman-forced-move-death-threats/
National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch announced Sunday on
Twitter that her family had been forced to move suddenly after she
received multiple death threats from gun control advocates.
What do you think they were threatened by? A deranged person with a
gun, perhaps?
A "tolerant' leftie who thinks laws should only applies to
conservatives obviously.
Obviously.
Wow! He makes the same kind of grammatical errors that YOU do. Guess
you really are right about not being able to make a sockpuppet that's
smarter than yourself.
What are the odds, eh?
I'm always amused that FPP is absolutely convinced of something that
isn't true. I can imagine him hunched over his computer muttering
"they're all really the same person".
Nah, it's just FPPsky's desperate attempt to change the subject when he's
lost the debate, something which happens with alarming frequency.
[long debunked nonsense]
Different servers and posting accounts, but we've been through all of
this before. Unfortunately, you're too stubborn to admit you're wrong
and prefer to live in a fantasy world.
FPPsky also made my point. Again.
Identical content was posted at identical times from two supposedly
different "people".

It’s been only four months since Rep. Steve Scalise was shot by a Bernie
Sanders fan, but did one of his colleagues advocate violence against the
president of the United States?

The one-note impeachment minstrel Maxine Waters promised a group that benefits
“homeless LGBTQ youth” that she will “take out” the president — and the
liberal audience wildly applauded.

Appearing recently at the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City, it only
took Waters 27 seconds before she slammed Trump.

https://youtu.be/Cmj_FyGnZJw

“Wow, what a moving evening this is,” Waters began on October 13 in a clip
posted Friday.

“I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even
though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take
out Trump tonight,” she said as the crowd roared in approval and Waters pumped
her fist.

Just two days later, Waters continued to rant about Trump, this time at a Los
Angeles AIDS walk.

Waters took the stage in front of Los Angeles City Hall on Sunday and quickly
turned the event into a platform to push her personal political agenda.

https://youtu.be/A6Sm4-KT7JM

She congratulated APLA Health for meeting online fundraising goals and briefly
outlined the progress made to control the AIDS epidemic, then quickly pivoted
to Trump and Republicans in Congress.

“We face unprecedented challenges today in our struggle against HIV and AIDS
and I want you to know those people in Congress on the opposite side of the
aisle from me control every branch of our federal government,” Waters said.
“And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House.”

“We don’t know what this president will do, or say, or tweet from one day to
the next. Don’t forget, this is not a political event, but I’m heading toward
impeachment,” Waters said with a snicker.

“Another challenge we face today is Republicans’ determination to repeal the
Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare,” Waters continued.

“Without Obamacare, insurance companies will once again be able to deny care
to the people living with HIV and other pre-existing conditions. Furthermore,
without Obamacare states like California that expanded Medicaid will not be
able to cover low-income adults living with HIV.

“And so, the House Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill which passed the House
in May will cut $100 billion from Medicaid and cause 23 million Americans to
lose their health insurance,” the 79-year-old career politician said. “So far,
the Senate has been great. It has refused to pass the bill.”

10/21/17 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Issuing a defiant call to arms to grassroots Republicans, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon railed Friday against dangerous “global elites” and the Silicon Valley “lords of technology” whom he said are robbing U.S. citizens of jobs, wealth and opportunity.
Bannon’s attacks on establishment politicians were generally well received.
When he mentioned Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain — the former POW whose name was met with boos — someone in the audience yelled, “Hang him!”
John McCain, the war hero who was tortured for 5 years in a Vietnamese
prison camp, is in the last days of his battle with an aggressive form
of brain cancer.

Nobody spoke up for McCain, and nobody left the meeting in protest. Nobody.
It doesn't gat any worse than this.

Republicans should be ashamed of themselves.
But they aren't.

Last week, a black man in Queens, New York threw an unknown "burning"
substance into the face of a 13-year-old white girl as he yelled, "This
is for you, white b****!"

The racially-charged attack is now being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate
Crimes Task Force.

The incident took place last Tuesday afternoon, when the victim was
getting off a bus in the Richmond Hill area.

According to CBS New York, "Police said the suspect came up behind the
girl and when she turned around, he yelled racial remarks and threw the
unknown substance on her."

The substance, in what appears to have been held in a water bottle,
remains unknown by authorities but was said to have "burned" the
victim's eyes. The 13-year-old was treated at Jamaica Hospital and is
expected to recover.

The victim's father, Vincent Evangelista, said his daughter usually
leaves school with friends, but was alone due to an after-school program
delaying her travel.

"Normally she travels after school with her buddies," he said, "but she
was part of an after school program and came back a little later."

Evangelista said his daughter is strong and will not let the cowardly
attack affect her future.

"She’s going to move on from this incident and not let this in any way
affect her in the future," Evangelista said.

"As long as she feels safe taking the bus she can continue taking the
bus," he added.

Officers are scanning the neighborhood in effort to find the
perpetrator.

"The police came yesterday here and they went to the liquor store and
they checked all the camera," said a neighborhood worker, Francisco
Disla.

"I hope they catch him," said Richmond Hill resident Kamle Dokhie. "I’m
scared for myself because I travel on the bus all the time so I hope
they do something about it fast."



"I think that’s really scary that he’s still on the loose because
honestly I don’t want him doing anything like that to me or my friends,"
added another local resident, Nandanie Shamnarine.

"The suspect is described by police as a black man, about 30 years old,
with a bald head," reports CBS New York. "He was last seen wearing a
dark colored hooded sweatshirt with a red shirt underneath, royal blue
pants, and tan and brown boots."

On Wednesday, at the Arlington County Democratic Committee monthly
meeting, Virginia state Senator Barbara Favola (D) referred to the
opposition as "evil."

What my colleagues didn't really tell you is how dangerous it
will be if the other side wins. They're evil, we're the good
guys.

https://youtu.be/_yM3Z5oZEm8

According to The Washington Free Beacon, the meeting was attended by
"Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, lieutenant governor
candidate Justin Fairfax, and attorney general candidate Mark Herring,"
as well as Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).

Democrats in Virginia recently came under fire after the Latino Victory
Fund released an anti-Gillespie commercial in which a man in a truck
with a Gillespie bumper sticker and a Confederate flag attempts to run
down minorities.

The Daily Wire reached out to Favola through multiple avenues. As of
publication, there has been no reply.

After the passage of the GOP tax plan in the United States Senate, some
progressives took to social media to target Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who
is suffering from brain cancer.

The worst of the worst have pulled out their keyboards to wish death and
suffering on McCain because he dared to have a different opinion on
governmental operations than they do.

Here are the scummiest tweets against McCain:

comrade thanker @dotcormunism
its truly a travesty that john mccain didnt die in vietnam

Moonshine @Moonshine1931
John McCain has the best healtcare. at Mayo Clinic which doesnt
take insurance. Only money up front. McCain has taken away health
insurance from his constituents and Americans giving himself the
best cancer treatment. Consolation is it wont work, he will die
in screaming agony

¯\_(?)_/¯ Game @deepfriedwhisky
But that’s who John McCain is — a spineless do nothing who says
the good thing and then does the bad thing. He doesn’t give a fuck
about people or this country. He’s a selfish old fuck who should
be left to die.
https://twitter.com/theplumlinegs/status/936769488577540097 …

At least we get to watch #JohnMcCain die soon.
— Sean Tatum (@seanofalaska) December 2, 2017

Jackie Proctor @JackieProctorFl
Sen John McCain should die a tortuous death. Or he should be
tortured some more. Asshole

CascadianCat @cascadianCat
Replying to @jimmy_dore
I'm rooting for John McCain's cancer.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX @dead_pets
I hope John McCain experiences what feels like an eternity of
suffering in the moments before his painful death from advanced
brain cancer

vulgar boy @boy_vulgar
No death I can imagine would be painful or humiliating enough
for what John McCain truly deserves.

Why write about these tweets? Because it’s an important reminder that
cruelty is often the byproduct of a frustrated lack of understanding. The
people that tweeted these terrible things about John McCain likely
couldn’t describe to you with any degree of detail the contents and impact
of the GOP tax bill. They’ve read angry headlines and blurbs, and have
decided — based only on the little they know — that McCain is a monster
who deserves suffering because he voted in favor of that which they’ve
been told to hate.

As Anton Chekhov wrote: "The world perishes not from bandits and fires,
but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles."

Contrary to their claims of tolerance and love for all of God's
creatures, there's one thing hardcore liberals really hate: Republicans.

So when Kentucky State Representative Dan Johnson, a Republican under
investigation for allegedly sexually molesting a 17-year-old girl,
committed suicide on Wednesday, they jumped on social media to celebrate.


CykoDad @CykoDad408
Good.

Haston @haston
Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition...

Barcham @Barcham2015
Roy Moore should follow his example.

Hilarious! The Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama who
lost his race on Tuesday after unproven — and vehemently denied —
allegations of sexual misconduct with young women, should kill himself.

The accusations against Johnson were gross, that he woke his daughter’s
friend during a sleepover in 2013 and forced himself on her, slipping his
hands under her shirt and bra and putting his fingers in her vagina,
according to The Washington Post. There were other troubling reports
uncovered by a local media investigation into Johnson, including other
charges of sexual abuse, arson and false testimony.

Horrible things, if true. But Johnson was just 57, with five children and
nine grandchildren — "two in tummies," he said in his suicide note.
Johnson surely should have had his day in court to face all charges and,
if found guilty, been given a suitable punishment.

But cheering a man's death is way over the top.

Rep. Steve Scalise has been back on the job in Congress for a little
more than two months, after suffering a near-fatal gunshot wound in a
mass shooting where he and other Republicans were targeted by a leftist
out to kill conservative lawmakers over a political disagreement.

Scalise is also one of the key Republicans behind Wednesday's landmark
tax reform bill, helping to usher the massive tax cut through the House
_twice_, after a procedural issue doomed the first vote.

It took ghoulish leftists mere moments to make the connection — and, of
course, suggest that the Congressional baseball diamond shooter should
have finished the job.

Apparently, falsely claiming that millions would die as a result of
Republican tax cuts wasn't enough, these social media creeps felt the
need to add another body to the count.

They’ve received death threats and had profanities and rocks hurled at
them. One company’s tractor was stolen.

For the few Hispanic-owned construction firms daring to bid on building
a piece of President Trump’s border wall, this is the emotional price
of doing business.

Owners say they have been accused of betraying their community. Some
say they have had to swallow their own qualms about Trump’s contentious
immigration policies.

“A lot of people are saying, ‘You’re Latino. How can you build a wall
to keep other Latinos out?’ We had to do a lot of soul-searching before
we jumped into this because it’s obviously a very, very controversial
topic,” said Michael Evangelista-Ysasaga, chief executive and owner of
the Penna Group, a firm based in Fort Worth.

Evangelista-Ysasaga, whose grandparents emigrated from Mexico, said he
fielded five death threats one morning alone this week from “random
people calling into the office and just screaming.”

Every sovereign nation has a duty to defend its borders, he told
callers. Unfortunately, he said, a “certain segment” of American
Latinos have cast supporters of the border wall as “racist.”

Work on the border wall has stirred such impassioned reactions that
only a tiny fraction of the country’s nearly half-million Hispanic-
owned construction firms are even considering profiting from Trump’s
wall.

Of the approximately 200 companies that have responded to the federal
government’s two requests for proposals for a solid concrete border
wall and another wall design, at least 32 companies are Hispanic-owned,
according to a Washington Post analysis of a federal database. The
deadline for proposals has been extended to April 4.

Construction executives, in interviews with The Post, said they weighed
their misgivings about building the border wall against the benefits of
providing jobs, growing their businesses, improving the local economy
and having the ability to influence the construction of a safer, more
humane wall.

“I try to be politically neutral in my decision-making process,” said
Al Anderson, general manager of KWR Construction, a Hispanic-owned firm
based in Sierra Vista, Ariz., that helped build the border fence as
well as related roads and lighting. “We want whatever jobs here along
the border that we can get, and set aside our personal beliefs to
support our employees.”

Border security work has always been contentious, Anderson said. He
recounted Mexicans harassing his workers in profanity-laced Spanish and
chucking rocks over a sliver of fencing as they installed lighting. One
of his employees donned a bulletproof vest at work every day.

“It was a rough environment, and I expect it to be more charged now
than it has been in the history of working along the border,” Anderson
said. “Not only are Mexicans infuriated with the United States, but
people in the United States are also infuriated.”

Anderson said that if his company is selected, he expects some of his
construction workers to quit rather than to build the wall.

“We’ll have people who are conscientious objectors against this
particular project,” he said. “They live in a small community, and they
don’t want to get threatening calls in the middle of the night.”

There are also economic risks. Some local and state governments are
considering a boycott of companies involved in building the 30-foot-
high wall that the government has specified must be “aesthetically
pleasing in color,” at least from the United States side.

“We want to do everything within our power to slow or stop the Trump
agenda, especially the border wall that is built on hatred and fear,”
said Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, a Democrat in the California State
Assembly who represents the state’s southernmost district encompassing
San Ysidro, adjacent to the Mexico border. She introduced a bill last
week that would require public-employee retirement funds to divest from
firms that work on the wall.

Patrick Balcazar, owner of a Puerto Rico-based firm, said he feels that
the billions of dollars the border wall would cost — which Congress has
yet to authorize — would be better spent on other priorities.

The Department of Homeland Security has estimated the wall would cost
$21.6 billion, nearly double what Trump’s campaign had cited.

But Puerto Rico is in the depths of an economic crisis. And its
construction industry is in a depression.
“Work is work,” Balcazar said. “I’m not a big fan of how Lady Gaga
dresses but if I’m a tailor and she wants me to make her a dress, I
will make a dress and I will tell her it looks good on her.”

He expected to get more pushback on his decision to submit a wall
design proposal from his firm, San Diego Project Management PSC, but
said that “most of my rank and file recognize it for what it is.”

Mario Burgos, president and chief executive of Burgos Group in
Albuquerque, says the wall construction work could also help stimulate
his state’s economy. New Mexico posted a 6.8 percent unemployment rate
in February, the highest in the nation.

“Employees are happy to know there’s a possibility for work, whether
they are Hispanic or not,” Burgos said.

In the border town of El Paso, where a fence separates the United
States from Mexico, Julian Carrizal said the wall would curb what some
in the industry consider unfair competition.

“When you have somebody come in with no liability insurance and no
workman’s comp, they can practically do the job for nothing,” said
Carrizal, president of J Carrizal General Construction. “That hurts our
ability to compete.” (UPDATE: After a version of this story ran online,
Carrizal, through his attorney, clarified that he does not support the
building of the wall personally, but he said he recognizes the economic
opportunity it presents.)

Evangelista-Ysasaga said his executive team was motivated to bid by
reports that some companies were considering designs for a lethal
electrical wall.

“There were some holdouts, but ultimately everyone decided the risk was
too great to sit on the sidelines,” he said. “We would rather be a
productive part of the solution and propose a humane option to secure
our border.”

He said his company has spent the past four years in the field working
on a border road and gathering data on what type of wall would be most
effective.

“We’ve picked a very hot-button project to be involved in but at the
end of the day, it is our hope that once we secure our border, we can
finally pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Evangelista-Ysasaga
said.

Trump Derangement Syndrome claimed another victim after a former executive
assistant at NBC decided to “protest” the president by yelling at his
animatronic robot doll during a show at Disney World.

The video clip shows Jay Malsky repeatedly screaming “lock him up” at the Trump
robot while other audience members, probably concerned about their frightened
children, tell him to shut up.

One of the audience members informs Malsky that he is literally yelling at a
robot, telling him, “He’s not real!”

“I protested @realDonaldTrump at the #hallofpresidents cuz I’ll never get this
close in real life probs. #lockhimup,” tweeted Malsky, eliciting a barrage of
ridicule.

I protested @realDonaldTrump at the #hallofpresidents cuz I'll never
get this close in real life probs. #lockhimup
pic.twitter.com/jKOQShIdz8

— Earnest Gay Thoughts (@JayMalsky) December 27, 2017

“Disney World is a private park and has a set of guidelines and standards to
ensure guests have a good experience. That video is disgusting and immature.
Families trying to enjoy their vacations not listen to your friend’s ridiculous
shouting,” responded Kenny Liszewski.

Malsky doubled down on his idiocy, suggesting that his protest was legitimate
because Disney is a public institution as it’s a “publicly traded company”.

“You don’t know the difference between a publicly traded company and private
property. Neat,” one user responded.

“Awful. I can’t imagine how scared and confused some of those children were,”
commented another Twitter user.

In a tweet that he subsequently deleted, Malsky posted a picture of the Trump
robot and remarked, “Mmmmmk. Are we allowed to say that we want to murder
this?”

“No matter what people visiting Walt Disney World may think about Donald Trump,
he is the current President of the United States, writes Danny Cox. “With that
designation, he has been added to the Hall of Presidents inside Magic Kingdom
whether people respect him or believe that someone should “lock him up.” If
someone doesn’t want to see him in the attraction, they can simply bypass it,
which would be better than being escorted out after screaming at an audio-
animatronic.”

Indeed, some are claiming that this could be the most obvious manifestation yet
of Trump Derangement Syndrome, although it still doesn’t beat the sight of
anti-Trump idiots literally screaming at the sky on the anniversary of the
president’s election, which is presumably Malsky’s next step before he is taken
away by men in white coats.

Trump Derangement Syndrome...
...exists because Trump is deranged.

The American Association of University Professors has documented more
than 100 incidents of harassment—including death threats—targeting
college professors for expressing viewpoints that included Trump
criticisms while in the classroom. According to CNN, some of the
professors have been forced to teach remotely via video conference.

-- A California professor at Orange Coast College who was captured on
video in the classroom criticizing President Donald Trump got death
threats, according to The Washington Post.

-- CBS News reported a Princeton professor received death threats after
giving a commencement speech in which she called Trump a "racist and
sexist megalomaniac."

-- A University of Iowa professor was targeted after discussing white
supremacy in the context of ancient statues and their use of white
marble, InsideHigherEd.com says.

On Monday, Georgetown University accepted the resignation of one of
its advisers, Jeff Bernstein, who had wished sexual assault against a
female conservative writer.

Allie Beth Stuckey, who operates The Conservative Millennial Blog,
posted Bernstein’s now-deleted tweet that was aimed directly at her:
“Wishing you a #metoo moment. Maybe then you won’t be so insensitive.”

Bernstein wrote his disgusting message in response to Stuckey calling
the #MeToo movement a “symptom of a broken world.” The two exchanged
words on Twitter with Bernstein issuing a weak apology after being
called out:

“I apologize. I shouldn’t have said that. I thought you
were implying that the fact that this moment is happening
meant that the world was not functioning properly, similar
to how you have minimized the terrible things Trump has
said/done. I would never wish harm on anyone.

“I meant you need to have a moment of truth Allie. You have
continued to make insensitive comments about refugees;
immigrants; pro-choice; people of color; women.”

Bernstein has now deleted his entire Twitter account, so all that’s
left in the exchange are Stuckey’s messages. The last one is great
because she points out that his "apology" basically said she was
asking for it:

https://www.truthrevolt.org/sites/default/files/images/Screen%20Shot
%202018-01-15%20at%203_49_44%20PM.png

Campus Reform covered Bernstein’s sexually aggressive outburst and he
issued an apology to them, noting how as a father of three, he’s
embarrassed he has no self-control:

“I apologize for making a stupid and insensitive comment. I
would never wish harm on anyone and apologized to Allie
repeatedly. I feel terribly. I have been a continuous voice
against gender bias. As a father of three, I am embarrassed
and this is a lesson for me that words have power.”

Don’t you just love how leftists who wish harm on others always
apologize with, “I would never wish harm on anyone?”

Stuckey was pleased with Georgetown’s statement regarding Bernstein’s
resignation:

“Encouraging, threatening or condoning violence and harassment
against another person, in any form and on any format, is
deeply inconsistent with the values of the program, our
school and our university.”

Unfortunately, it’s not deeply inconsistent with the values of the
Left.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has been hospitalized due to a serious back
injury he sustained while vacationing on his son Lachlan’s yacht in the
Caribbean earlier this month, according to Vanity Fair.

Though the source of the injury remains unclear, the 86-year-old has
been recovering in a Los Angeles hospital following the New Year's
holiday. In an email to his staff last Friday night, Murdoch said he
was "well on the road" to recovery.

"I hope you all are having a great start to 2018," he wrote in the
email, according to one source. "I suspect it has been better than
mine. I am writing to tell you that last week I had a sailing accident
and suffered a painful back injury. While I am well on the road to
recovery, I have to work from home for some weeks. In the meantime,
you’ll be hearing from me by email, phone, and text!"

It goes without mentioning that leftists have responded to the news
with schadenfreude giddiness. "Wake me when he's dead," "how can you
injure your back without a spine," and "it's called Karma" were just
some of the many responses.

As Rand Paul held a mini-filibuster Thursday night to protest a
bipartisan spending bill featuring trillion dollar deficits – the same
kind of reckless spending Republicans have protested for almost a
decade – singer and actress Bette Midler disapproved on Twitter.

Bette Midler
Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?

To recall, Paul was physically attacked by his neighbor Rene Boucher in
early November on the senator’s own lawn. Boucher has been charged with
felony assault.

But, hey, Midler was just making a joke, right?

About assault?

Paul adviser Sergio Gor didn’t see it that way.

Sergio Gor @SergioGor
This is disgusting @BetteMidler calling for violence.
She should be ashamed.

Nor was he alone.

Brandon Saario @SaarioBrandon
I hope no one ever tries to beat you. If that happens I
won't hope for it to happen again. But I was raised
different than you.

Some wondered if Midler had violated Twitter policy.

Landen Smith @LandenSmith11
Isn't this targeted attack against Twitter rules?
@***@TwitterSupport
Are liberal's not held to the same rules?

One of the most retweeted responses to Midler was from Paul supporter
“Heather.”

T.J. Eckert @EckertTJ
Replying to @BetteMidler
So much for love trumps hate...

Heather @starlasworld
Usually idc what celebrities say about politics, I’ve loved
Bette since I was a little kid- but this statement made me
lose all respect for her. Ick

Others were more direct.

Christopher Stearns @chris_stearns
You are a bitch, FYI.

Former Paul presidential campaign adviser Michael Biundo asked, simply:

Michael Biundo @MichaelBiundo
How is this even remotely ok?

How is this okay?

Paul’s assault – a blindside attack – resulted in broken ribs,
pneumonia and other serious ailments including a punctured lung.

“The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since Nov. 3, my
husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain,” the
senator’s wife, Kelley Paul, wrote at CNN in late November. “He has not
had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult
breathing or excruciating coughing.”

“There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready
to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying,”
Mrs. Paul added.

Could you imagine a celebrity – could you imagine anyone – joking about
physically assaulting Democrats Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer and what
kind of reaction that would elicit from the left?

But, we don’t have to take it to that extreme to acknowledge why Bette
Midler’s tweet got such a harsh response: Advocating violence over
political disagreements should be unacceptable anywhere on the
ideological spectrum. Even for liberals urging violence against
conservatives.

Even for celebrities.
