Why Are Liberals So Violent?

Craig Shirley and Scott Mauer, CNS News

Both individual and state-sponsored terrorism and murder and violence is nothing new, but there’s something to be said when an ideology places the collective over the individual. To place the group before the individual is to deny the humanity of the person, where the means of achieving a “utopia” is justified. Violence, murder, slave labor – all is right in the collectivists’ minds.

Democrats Have Already Started The Second Civil War

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as events that appear intended to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." If that is not what the Left has been engaged in with increasing ferocity, especially over the past two weeks, then “intimidation and coercion” have lost their meaning.

The Real World Is Starting To Resemble Twitter, And That’s A Problem

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The next phase of our ginned-up national moral panic will contain public shunning and harassment in their private lives of people we disagree with. It isn’t only about child separation of illegal immigrants. It’s about tax cuts. It’s about Obamacare. It’s about long-standing conservative positions. According to many, Republicans are accomplices to murder. The hysterics that bloom with every debate are creating a swelling exasperation among Democrats that borders on religiosity. Apparently this excuses almost any behavior or rhetoric.

A Fascist Right -- or a Hysterical Left?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The left, to the point of irrationality, despises a triumphant Trumpian right and believes that to equate it with fascists is not only legitimate, but a sign that the accusers are the real moral, righteous and courageous dissenters in these terrible times. Historians are calling the outbursts of hate unprecedented. They are not. When it comes to the rhetoric of hate, the cursing of politicians, the shouting down of speakers, the right is not innocent, but the left is infinitely more guilty. It was to the Donald Trump rallies, not the Bernie Sanders rallies, that the provocateurs came to start the fights.

Why the Left Is Having a Nervous Breakdown

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump is what the shrinks call the "presenting complaint." The real problem, as is often the case in psychotherapy, is something entirely different. And it is this: The left is dead. It's not only dead, it's decomposed with no there there or anywhere. The left has nothing to say, only most of them don't quite realize it yet. But this blockage, this reluctance and even inability to deal with what is actually happening shuts down the brain and emerges as anger, the hamster wheel of constant rage against Trump.

Liberals’ Hatred Will Inevitably Turn Into Violence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Only liberals can choose not to go down the road to widespread, systematic violence. But if they choose poorly, Normals are ready, willing, and able stop them. Last month, Normal Americans bought over two million new guns. They’ve got 400 million already. Normals are sitting on a towering mountain of lead-launching freedom. But we’d prefer the option the liberals have ignored – a return to a society where disputes are resolved via the processes outlined in the Constitution and the individual rights set forth within it are respected.

The Left’s Next Step Is Open Violence Against Conservatives

Unless Democrats and the cultural and political leadership of the Left come out firmly against mob violence this dangerous situation is only going to escalate. A good start would be a congressional censure of Rep. Waters, but unambiguous statements from Left-leaning cultural and media leaders, like The Washington Post, that political violence is not to be tolerated are also needed.

Kill Chic

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In 2017, the obsessive hatred of Trump led to many obscenities: Madonna told us she dreamed of blowing up the White House, comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bloody facsimile of Trump’s head, Snoop Dog shot a Trump likeliness in a video, a Shakespearean company ritually stabbed Trump-Caesar every night on stage, Johnny Depp joked, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? … It has been a while, and maybe it is time.” But such kill chic is hardly new — and hardly a result of Trump’s sometimes reckless tweets or undisciplined outbursts.

Violencing Politics, Speech, and Religion

The Constitution creates a system of regular and non-violent transition of political power. However, in the view of the anti-constitutional left it seems violence is a justifiable response to losing political power.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.

Dem Operative Who Oversaw Trump Rally Agitators Visited White House 342 Times

Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

Robert Creamer, who acted as a middle man between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and “protesters” who tried — and succeeded — to provoke violence at Trump rallies met with President Obama 47 times, according to White House records. Creamer’s last visit was in June 2016.
