Left-wing Hate
by Gary Bauer 9/12/2018

In a recent report, I noted that nearly 60% of Americans fear violence from the left.  Some recent headlines, largely ignored by the so-called “mainstream media,” demonstrate why this is a valid concern.  For example:

  • Last week, a Republican Party office in Wyoming was firebombed just two days after it opened.
  • Over the weekend, a rabid Trump-hater attempted to stab a California Republican congressional candidate.
  • Last night, a Democrat Socialist threatened to assassinate conservatives at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C.  He tweeted, “I’m coming with a gun and I expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies.”
  • Conservative commentator Denise McAllister has gone into hiding after receiving death threats and rape threats over a pro-life tweet.
  • The office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been inundated with hateful emails, letters and voicemails in opposition to Brett Kavanaugh.  Three thousand coat hangers have been sent to her office.  One person called and told a female staffer that “he hoped she would be raped and impregnated.”

It is worth noting that the Twitter threat of a mass shooting at the Trump Hotel came on the same day that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough published an opinion piece in the Washington Post suggesting that Donald Trump was a greater threat to America than Al Qaeda.

The hysteria and constant incitement on the left is creating a very dangerous and undemocratic atmosphere in America.  Of course, no one knows this better than Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), who was shot and almost killed by a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter.

Today, Scalise called on liberals to condemn the left’s political violence, saying, “There’s no place for it. . . That’s not what American ideals are about.”
