A resurgence of violence against conservative Americans is being condoned and promoted by extremist Democrats and the media outlets that serve them as the elections near.
Following the 2016 election, Democrats called on street gangs such as Antifa and others to “resist and obstruction” the Trump Administration and harass supporters wherever they go.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” California Rep. Maxine Waters once said, stoking a mob into violent anger. “The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”
Her call to violence was not denounced by members of the Democratic Party nor the left-leaning media outlets. Instead, they echoed across television screens tuned into CNN, MSNBC, and others, whipping the fringe element into a frenzy. Antifa routinely attacked police, burned automobiles, and doled out gang beatings to seniors citizens. Those cowardly acts are on the rise again as heightened rhetoric by Democrats prompts liberal insurgents to lash out.
Since New Year’s, a rash of criminal acts have been perpetrated against Republicans and Trump supporters. On Jan. 21, a liberal extremist reportedly murdered his boss for being a “proud and outspoken American and pro-Donald Trump,” according to an Orange County, Florida, affidavit. In early February, the GOP headquarters in New Mexico was vandalized. And, a 14-year-old high schooler was assaulted by a violent liberal for wearing a Make America Great Again hat outside a New Hampshire polling station.
The teenager reportedly was approached by a Democrat who reportedly cursed, “and slapped (the minor) across the face,” shouting “fascists” as he also assaulted an adult, Stephen Leclerc, wearing a MAGA hat as well.
“The recent attacks on conservatives and Trump supporters for wearing MAGA hats has gotten out of control,” assault victim Leclerc reportedly posted on social media.
In California, conservatives are targeted on university campuses as administrators and left-wing professors preach intolerance. U.C. Santa Cruz ranks among the recent hotbeds of liberal violence when College Republicans were attacked. A liberal student vandalized a Trump campaign banner and then spat on the American flag. Free speech activist Hayden Williams was reportedly assaulted at the scene.
“Assaulting individuals and students standing up for their rights has become commonplace on college campuses in this country,” Williams said. “In a place like UC Santa Cruz, I do not expect justice or recourse from law enforcement, or disciplinary action to be taken by the school.”
The escalation in attacks on conservatives hit a fever pitch in Jacksonville, Florida, as the field of Democrat presidential hopefuls demonstrates an increasing ineptitude to put forth a viable policy platform, and President Donald Trump’s approval ratings soar. There, a man drove a van through a GOP voter registration tent but failed to mow down Republicans.
“Witnesses told JSO (Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office) that a man in his 20s driving an older brown Chevy van pulled up to the tent before driving through, running over their tables and chairs. Volunteers for the Republican Party were registering people to vote,” witnesses reported. “No volunteers were hurt, according to JSO. Witnesses said the driver of the van, stopped the vehicle, get out of the van and took a video while making obscene gestures before he left.”
Despite the uptick in left-wing aggression, conservative Americans refuse to back down from intimidation tactics.
“The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards, and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights,” Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black reportedly said.
Republican National Committee co-chair Ronna McDaniel issued a strong message of unity with Florida conservatives.
“These unprovoked, senseless attacks on @realDonaldTrump’s supporters need to end. I want to echo the @DuvalGOP in saying: We will not be silenced by cowards, and these disgusting acts will only make us work harder to win November,” McDaniel tweeted.
It’s become increasingly clear that Florida is no longer a so-called “battleground state,” given the president is now a permanent resident, and his Mar-a-Lago resort is considered the Southern White House.
As the election approaches, conservatives can expect liberal extremists to get even more out of control. The realization that Democrats do not have a candidate that can unseat President Trump remains a source of extreme psychological instability.
