As the campaigning for Tuesdays midterm elections draws to a close, Democrats are seeking to gain political advantage by falsely accusing President Trump of motivating some unbalanced people to take violent actions. The charge is absurd.
Yet Democrats are ignoring their own angry calls to resist the president by protests at the homes of members of his administration, angry confrontations at movie theaters and restaurants, and other harassing behavior.
As an angry Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., told supporters in the summer: I want to tell you, these members of his (Trumps) Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they wont be able to go to a restaurant, they wont be able to stop at a gas station, theyre not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them. Theyre going to protest. Theyre absolutely going to harass them.
In the midst of the investigation into the mailing of pipe bombs to high-profile Democrats and to CNN, President Trump responded with heartfelt concern, issuing a firm condemnation from the White House that made clear he will not tolerate politically motivated violence of any kind.
In these times we have to unify, we have to come together," the president said, calling mailing of the pipe bombs "abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans" and vowing that we will get to the bottom of it. Fortunately, none of the bombs went off and no one was hurt.
In addition, the president strongly denounced anti-Semitism in several appearances in the wake of the horrific murders of 11 Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue one week ago. He visited the synagogue to join in mourning of the dead and to make it clear that religious prejudice has absolutely no place in our country.

Maxine, the uniter.
They don’t realize that their own base knows how absurd they are - they will still vote for them because it’s what they do, but they know they’re backing lunatics.
If they were at my polling place I would have given them the middle finger.
“Fortunately, none of the bombs went off and no one was hurt.”
I had not heard, were they actually bombs? I don’t believe I heard anyone declare the devices as actually functional.
It is clear they were supposed to be threatening but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were bombs. But the narrative has essentially declared them so.
That story sure disappeared quick didnt it ?
