Dennis Prager maintains that we’re in a civil war but it’s one that, so far, hasn’t shed any blood.
I don’t agree.
Representative Steve Scalise shed blood, as did Crystal Griner, a Capitol Police officer, Zack Barth, a congressional aide, and Matt Mika, a Tyson Foods lobbyist. It’s a miracle we didn’t lose anyone but the shooter in this horrific event. I do not ascribe psychosis to this man. It’s nothing but leftism and evil that made him do what he did – all because he didn’t agree with Republican politics.
Fast forward about a year and if you’re up for it, step back from the Kavanaugh circus and examine what’s coming from the left.
Ted Cruz was having dinner with his wife in D.C. when he was confronted by a group of mindless whelps screaming “We believe survivors!” They had to leave the restaurant (I for one would never return).
Other, high ranking officials have come under similar confrontations.
Under the encouragement of people like CA Congressman Maxine Waters, we have prominent people on social media calling for violence.
Behold Ian Millhiser(@imillhiser), ThinkProgress “Justice” editor:
Tell me again why we shouldn’t confront Republicans where they eat, where they sleep, and where they work until they stop being complicit in the destruction of our democracy.
Don’t just confront them in restaurants. Confront them in elevators. Confront them on trains. Confront them on planes. Confront them in hallways. Confront them in public. Confront them in private. We cannot allow them to normalize their greed and horror.
Let’s break this out. We’ve seen the statistics, that there’s an estimated one firearm for every American. Some estimates are higher at a total of 430,000,000. If we stipulate that a certain percentage of those are owned by Democrats, we’ll play it safe and say we have 300,000,000. If we’re conservative and say that each firearm has an average of 100 rounds per, that’s 30 trillion rounds of ammunition in the hands of people who generally know how to use a firearm.
These are numbers you don’t want to go up against.
To those people who call themselves Americans but wish to destroy our beloved country, I urge you to reconsider this incessant need to confront violently those you oppose. We who love America tend to be armed and trained, and we are increasingly less tolerant of your forced tolerance. The last thing we want is a fight but if you push us enough, we’ll oblige.
I’ll leave you with something our Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis said to a group of Iraqi military leaders in 2003.
