Steve Scalise: When Eric Holder, Democrats Call For Violence, That's A Threat To Our Democracy
Fox News ^ | 10-11-2018 | Steve Scalise

Posted on 10/11/2018 7:02:48 AM PDT by blam

This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.”

Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence.

Beginning with my own near-death experience at the hands of a deranged shooter who sought to assassinate a baseball field of Republicans, there is a growing list of violent or threatening actions taken against conservatives by Democrats.

Ashley Kavanaugh, Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s wife and his daughters received multiple credible threats.
Dana Loesch, NRA spokeswoman, received death threats against her children on Twitter.
Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., received such a threatening phone call that the man has now been indicted.
•Jamie Gardner, wife of Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., wife, received a text of a beheading after the vote to confirm Justice Kavanaugh.
Several Republican Senators had their personal information, including home addresses, posted to Wikipedia for threatening purposes by a Democrat House staffer.
Congressman Clay Higgins (R-La.) received threatening phone calls that led to a man’s arrest. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kent., and his wife Kelly Paul have both received credible threats that have led to arrests.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife, as well as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, were chased out of restaurants.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was confronted by protesters and harassed out of a DC restaurant.

I don’t think a lot of people realize just how serious this is. It’s got me carrying in my car and buying more ammo. I think they are dog-whistling the radical left.

Scalise uses the word “democracy” dozens of times, and uses the word “republic” zero times.

If we are to engage in the war on language, more of our elected “leaders” need to be mindful to use conservative language, and not fall prey to using the tongue of the leftists.

Sorry, think it is really a threat to the republic and the persons therein.

Agree this is a lefty radical dog whistle. Have felt for some time now that it is also a 2nd Amendment stalking horse. Put enough screaming cannon fodder out there and eventually one will be justly be put down in defense of life or limb. After which, the rats will have their Reichstag fire and voila.....

.02, YMMV

On FOX News. That’s the problem. The rest of MSM gives cover to the rats on this.

Inciting violence is a crime. Arrest him. Teach him the lesson of a “learning moment”.

That’s one of my pet peeves. Every time George W. Bush came on TV and mumbled platitudes about “democracy” for Iraq, Asscrackistan, and other world shitholes, I cringed.

It must be highlighted that these insane mobs of uneducated Liberal agitators were programmed in our schools by design starting back in the 1980’s or earlier. LBJ and the NEA infused Liberal propaganda into the public schools; reading, writing, and arithmetic were secondary to Liberal feel-good BS.

In 1980, I helped with the report, “A Nation At Risk,” issued by one of President Reagan’s subcommittees formed in the Department of Education.

April 1983 - “A Nation At Risk”

“All, regardless of race or class or economic status, are entitled to a fair chance and to the tools for developing their individual powers of mind and spirit to the utmost. This promise means that all children by virtue of their own efforts, competently guided, can hope to attain the mature and informed judgement needed to secure gainful employment, and to manage their own lives, thereby serving not only their own interests but also the progress of society itself...”

“...If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war. As it stands, we have allowed this to happen to ourselves. We have even squandered the gains in student achievement made in the wake of the Sputnik challenge. Moreover, we have dismantled essential support systems which helped make those gains possible. We have, in effect, been committing an act of unthinking, unilateral educational disarmament...”

I have known this has been serious since 2009 after I read this linked article below. Obama, Holder and the whole gang have become liberal fascists.

And here is that article, read it please, the violence will likely become much worse:

“The Quintessential Liberal Fascist”

Scalise uses the word “democracy” dozens of times, and uses the word “republic” zero times.

I was going to post a rant about people, even the so-called smart people, using the term "democracy" instead of the correct term, "republic," but you beat me to it.

It really angers me when so many people who are supposed to know better use the wrong terminology and it makes me believe that is one reason so many citizens want us to become a democracy.

“Conviction by Accusation” is just one step short of “Conviction by Execution” -the privilege of all the uber tyrants of the 20th century.

The financiers of the liberal left fools in the USA know exactly what it is they’re gunning for. THEY WOULD divide us against one another.

And they’re only one SC Justice and 2 Senators shy of it

I’m about to read it but just for reference:

I saw this coming in 2008. I had lived in Seattle since 1967 (I was in 7th grade). Two weeks before the 2008 election I visited Kentucky and bought, on a handshake, a 12 acre farm with a new, but small, home. My wife and I moved there in 2011. My neighbor sold me his 20 acres a few years ago. I now own two knobs above the valley and two hollers with streams as well as a natural stream that runs year round.

Part of the reason I saw it coming was something I posted here when I was Robroy, back in Spring of 2008. It was about a meeting that eventually gave us QE. I believe the country was about to collapse, financially, It scared the crap out of our representatives.

So yeah, we’re on the same page. I’m going to read your article now. It’s from one of my favorite internet sources.

Scalise needs to be out in front of the media much more than he has been so as to put a face on the results of the Left’s hatred, even more so now in this election season...

Scariest thing of all...the first part of th above paragraph reads like something out of “Atlas Shrugged” (mistake to be rereading now, but...)as a looter’s whine. Funny, the entitlement that the loons complain about is ensconced in their own flawed rhetoric.

On the money re schools before the 80s. Read “Freedom’s Forge” by Arthur Herman, and at the end, after the war, note the government view as to how everything was to be represented in public schools (indoctrination centers).

Thanks to decades of indoctrination, the populace at large (not here)is less offended by socialism than ever.
