As masked leftists use clubs to shut down free speech at Berkeley and elsewhere, Democrats have unfortunately been reticent to condemn the activity. But Antifa violence is not the only kind of condemnable disruptive activity. Democrats should also disavow the organized campaign to harass Republican congressmen and stop Republican town halls.
One group in the thick of this battle is Indivisible. The group was founded by a former staffer for Democratic Rep.

Darrell Issa (R-Calif). About 200 protesters showed up at Issa's home to harass him for not holding town hall meetings.

Its gotten so bad that unruly protestors recently invaded my familys home and personal property, frightening neighbors who then called the local police," Lewis told me.

Demoncrats will renounce themselves? Doubtful. Arrest them for sedition, they’ll give their typical vacant apology.
I know in my congressional district it is not only the Democrats who are asking questions.
GOPe John Carter of Texas will not meet with conservatives.
Indivisible should avoid Wyoming. You get shot for trespassing in Wyoming and liberals get shot TWICE!
Yeah, they’ll do that about the same time moderate Muslims do— like never.
They knocked a 71 year old Dana Rohrbacher staffer unconcious during one of their “protests” a while back.
Why would they do that?
