Leftist agitators are escalating their protests into intimidation and violence on campuses in public venues across the country against elected officials, public figures, and fellow students and now some lawmakers are saying, Enough!
The scale of the liberal resistance ranges from the national to the local. Politico reported yesterday that Republican members of Congress fear violence as they plan to repeal Obamacare. On Inauguration Day former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, while visiting Washington, was forced down an alley and boxed in against locked doors after an intimidating mob stalked him yelling pejoratives, expletives, and threats.
Meanwhile The Daily Caller explained how a loosely connected resistance to President Trump has vowed to become ungovernable, with groups such as DisruptJ20, Black Lives Matter, Refuse Fascism and Occupy Oakland stirring up riots and revolution. And last week Breitbart.com editor Milo Yiannopoulos was prevented from speaking at the University of California at Berkeley due to mob violence.
Even employees of the Environmental Protection Agency joined protests on Monday in Chicago.
So while supporting the demonstrators rights to free speech, a number of lawmakers around the country have found their behavior to be an infringement on the rights and safety of others, and they intend to sponsor legislation and institute strategies to do something about it.
After a recent town hall meeting in which Republican Rep. Tom McClintock had to be protected by law enforcement officers after attendees grew angry, some Congress members are taking precautions to protect themselves.

They need a rude awakening.
Ungovernable but not bulletproof.Let the games begin.
We don’t have laws against rioting, assault & battery and property destruction already?
OUR MOTO MUST BE "STRIKE BACK!!!"
I’ve got everything I need. I’ve noticed that in my area, they only do their crap downtown a block away from the cop-shop. Every county in Utah is more heavily armed than all of Europe. If they ever moved out of their little zone into the neighborhoods, they’d get their asses kicked all the way to the state line.
Time for a game of Cowboys and liberals.
This is where they are going wrong. The Tea Party held protests but they were peaceful and not one legislator was threatened. They knew the people were mad but nobody felt threatened.
These people are raging idiots.
No joke, bring it out to the rural areas, we’ll fix their wagon.
I'd like to see some "controversial" speaking events advertised just to attract the crazies. Bait the trap and lower the boom when they show.
Exactly. You beat me to it. We already have laws against this kind of criminal violence. Time to return to enforcing the law. At the very least, water guns, nightsticks, pepper spray, rubber bullets, since we can only put so many of them in jail without going broke.
Thanks to Obama, there is plenty of room in Gitmo for those who can’t stand living in this country.
Soros and his allies, i.e. the Democrat Party along with the lying Liberal media, are funding the riots against people who disagree with them politically.
“The Tea Party held protests but they were peaceful and not one legislator was threatened.”
And, they picked up their own garbage.
I hope he rots in hell. And all of his minions.
Exactly. People were pizzed....and voiced their dissatisfaction.....but not violent.
Nothing like wood shampoos and taser perms followed by sidewalk sandwiches for some serious attitude adjustment.
Arresting for terrorism with 25 year sentences will work. Letting them get away with the terrorist action only promotes more of the same
