Yesterday a Democratic Party activist named James Hodgkinson, a volunteer for Bernie Sanders and a fan of left-wing talk shows, shot a Republican Congressman and his police guard.
Not all leftists are violent. And there’s nothing inherently wrong with Hodgkinson’s politics; they’re wrong, but they aren’t illegal.
But that’s the thing:
When Kathy Griffin holds up a simulation of Trump’s severed head; when the assassination of Trump is fantasized about in establishment art, including a production of Julius Caesar, playing now in New York, sponsored by the New York Times; when the murder of Republicans is now just part of the Democratic talking points, and it’s repeated often enough, someone’s going to act on it.
The left is normalizing violence. They want it to happen.
Here in Canada too. It’s happened to our former journalist Lauren Southern, as well as our Alberta Bureau Chief; Dion Bews punched Sheila Gunn Reid in the face, and an Edmonton judge gave him a few hours community service, and a discharge.
Scalise won’t be the last to be shot by leftists, who grow more like ISIS every day in their anti-western beliefs and their violent tactics.
NEXT: New Rebel contributor Laura Loomer joins me via Skype to talk more about yesterday’s assassination attemp.
THEN: Lorne Gunter, Senior Edmonton Sun Columnist, comes on to talk about the Victoria, BC mayor’s proposed solution to the housing crisis: billeting.
