Republican Congressional candidate and her neighbors receive suspicious packages, and shots were fired at a truck waving a pro-Trump flag
If you thought that maybe after Steve Scalice and several others were shot by an alt-leftist yesterday the left might tone down their violent rhetoric and antics you were sadly mistaken. Early returns on Twitter showed the alt-left was indeed upset with the shooting, but only because it was not worse than it was. Then shortly after the shooting Representative Tenney of New York received an email with the ominous subject line “One down, 216 to go…“
And it has only continued today: First; Karen Handel, who is running for a Congressional seat in Georgia, along with all of her neighbors, received suspicious packages with white powder and a rather vile note.
Here is the content of the note, I apologize in advance for the language. The note includes one of the most vile misogynistic words imaginable and another horrible display of vulgarity.
Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that. Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers.”
“RESIST THE FASCIST TAKEOVER!!!!,” it says. ” STRING UP THE COLLABORATORS!”
In addition to the vile language there is also a call for violence.
And second; it is now being reported that a car pulled up to a truck which was flying a “make America great again” flag and opened fire. Here is more:
Indiana State Police say shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on eastbound I-465 Tuesday.
Officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m.
The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots.
Police say no one was in injured in the incident.
I have been guilty of laughing at how unhinged the left has become after the loss of the “anointed one” but I am not laughing any more because the alt-left has gone way over the line and are now not only promoting violence but appear to be acting on it. Anyone who tries to defend this is almost as guilty as those who are carrying out these acts because they are enablers.
I fear with this is headed, the Democrats have not been this angry since the Republicans took away their slaves…
malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium
The explosion of violence against conservatives across the country is being intentionally ginned up by Democrats, reporters, TV hosts, late-night comedians and celebrities, who compete with one another to come up with the most vile epithets for Trump and his supporters
From Daily Caller
They go right up to the line, trying not to cross it, by, for example, vamping with a realistic photo of a decapitated Trump or calling the president a “piece of s—” while hosting a show on CNN.
The media are orchestrating a bloodless coup, but they’re perfectly content to have their low-IQ shock troops pursue a bloody coup.
This week, one of the left’s foot soldiers gunned down Republican members of Congress and their staff while they were playing baseball in Virginia. Democratic Socialist James Hodgkinson was prevented from committing a mass murder only by the happenstance of a member of the Republican leadership being there, along with his 24-hour Capitol Police protection.
Remember when it was frightening for the losing party not to accept the results of an election? During the third debate, Trump refused to pre-emptively agree to the election results, saying he’d “look at it at the time.”
The media responded in their usual laid-back style:
A ‘HORRIFYING’ REPUDIATION OF DEMOCRACY — The Washington Post, Oct. 20, 2016
DENIAL OF DEMOCRACY — Daily News (New York), Oct. 20, 2016 DANGER TO DEMOCRACY — The Dallas Morning News, Oct. 20, 2016
ONE SCARY MOMENT; IT ALL BOILED DOWN TO … DEMOCRACY — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Oct. 21, 2016
“(Shock) spiked down the nation’s spinal column last night and today when the Republican nominee threatened that this little election thing you got there, this little democratic process you’ve got here, it’s nice, it’s fine, but he doesn’t necessarily plan on abiding by its decision when it comes to the presidency.” — Rachel Maddow, Oct. 20, 2016
“Trump’s answer on accepting the outcome of the vote is the most disgraceful statement by a presidential candidate in 160 years.” — Bret Stephens, then-deputy editorial page editor at The Wall Street Journal
“I guess we’re all going to have to wait until Nov. 9 to find out if we still have a country — if Donald Trump is in the mood for a peaceful transfer of power. Or if he’s going to wipe his fat a– with the Constitution.” — CBS’s Stephen Colbert, Oct. 19, 2016
“It’s unprecedented for a nominee of a major party to themselves signal that they would not accept — you know, respect the results of an election. We’ve never had that happen before. … This really presents a potentially difficult problem for governing …” — MSNBC’S Joy Reid, Oct. 22, 2016
“This is very dangerous stuff … would seriously impair our functioning as a democracy. … This is about as serious as it gets in the United States.” — CNN’s Peter Beinart, Oct. 20, 2016
“Obviously, it’s despicable for him to pretend that there’s any chance that he would not accept the results of this election; it would be — in 240 years you’ve never had anybody do it. …” — CNN’s Van Jones, Oct. 20, 2016
Then Trump won, and these very same hysterics refused to accept the results of the election.
Recently, Hillary announced her steadfast opposition to the winning candidate using a military term, saying she’d joined the “Resistance.”
Imagine if Trump lost and then announced that he’d joined the “RESISTANCE.” He’d be accused of trying to activate right-wing militias. Every dyspeptic glance at an immigrant would be reported as fascistic violence.
But the media seem blithely unaware that the anti-Trump “Resistance” has been accompanied by nonstop militaristic violence from liberals.
When Trump ripped up our Constitution and jumped all over it by failing to concede the election three weeks in advance, CNN ran a segment on a single tweet from a random Trump supporter that mentioned the Second Amendment.
Carol Costello: “Still to come in the ‘Newsroom,’ some Trump supporters say they will refuse to accept a loss on Election Day, with one offering a threat of violence. We’ll talk about that next.”
In CNN’s most fevered dreams about a violent uprising of Trump supporters, they never could have conceived of the level of actual violence being perpetrated by Americans who refuse to accept Trump’s win. (See Hate Map.)
It began with Trump’s inauguration, when a leftist group plotted to pump a debilitating gas into one Trump inaugural ball, military families were assaulted upon leaving the Veterans’ Inaugural Ball, and attendees of other balls had water thrown on them.
Since then, masked, armed liberals around the country have formed military-style organizations to beat up conservatives. In liberal towns, the police are regularly ordered to stand down to allow the assaults to proceed unimpeded.
The media only declared a crisis when conservatives fought back, smashing the black-clad beta males. (“Battle for Berkeley!”)
There is more media coverage for conservatives’ “microaggressions” toward powerful minorities -– such as using the wrong pronoun — than there is for liberals’ physical attacks on conservatives, including macings, concussions and hospitalizations.
And now some nut Bernie Sanders-supporter confirms that it’s Republicans standing on a baseball field, before opening fire.
In the media’s strategic reporting of the attempted slaughter, we were quickly told that the mass shooter was white, male and had used a gun. We were even told his name. (Because it was not “Mohammed.”)
But the fact that Hodgkinson’s Facebook page featured a banner of Sanders and the words “Democratic Socialism explained in 3 words: ‘We the People’ Since 1776” apparently called for hours of meticulous fact-checking by our media.
Did reporters think they could keep that information from us forever?
The fake news insists that Trump’s White House is in “chaos.” No, the country is in chaos. But just like Kathy Griffin and her Trump decapitation performance art — the perpetrators turn around in doe-eyed innocence and blame Trump.

Southern Poverty Law Center Demonized Scalise But Distances Itself From Shooter Who ‘Liked’ Their Facebook Page
“We’re aware that the SPLC was among hundreds of groups that the man identified as the shooter ‘liked” on Facebook.”
The hate group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center was forced to release a statement distancing itself from the man who shot Republican lawmakers and staff as they practiced for a charity baseball game Wednesday, after it came to light that the shooter “liked” the SPLC’s Facebook page.
James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, who shot Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and four others, was killed on the scene by police officers. His social media posts and other evidence identified him as a GOP-hating, Bernie Sanders supporter. Among the groups he “liked” and followed on Facebook was the SPLC, which regularly demonizes conservatives as bigots and racists and labels rightwing organizations as hate groups.
Richard Cohen, the president of the SPLC, said in a statement,
“The attack on members of Congress and their staffs today was a sickening and cowardly act of terror that must be condemned by everyone across the political spectrum. Any violent attack on our political leadership is an attack on our democracy.
“We’re aware that the SPLC was among hundreds of groups that the man identified as the shooter ‘liked’ on Facebook. I want to be as clear as I can possibly be: The SPLC condemns all forms of violence.”
“We have worked for decades to combat domestic terrorism and violence based on hate. Our hearts are with those who were injured today and the families of all who have been affected by this deplorable act. We hope and pray for their full recovery.”
In its Spring “Intelligence Report” in 2015, for example, the SPLC noted that Scalise “hails from the same Louisiana parish” as David Duke and other well-known white supremacists, suggesting that mere proximity casts suspicion on him.
In another example, the SPLC attacked Scalise in December of 2014 for allegedly speaking at a gathering a dozen years earlier which included white supremacists. The SPLC wrote, “Scalise claimed yesterday that he had no idea of the views promoted by the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO), whose workshop he addressed in 2002 at a hotel in Metairie, La… But Scalise’s claim of ignorance is almost impossible to believe,” SPLC wrote. “He was a state representative and an aspiring national politician at the time, and Louisiana-based EURO already was well known as a hate group led by America’s most famous white supremacist.”
So the Southern Poverty Law Center has no problem painting right wingers as racist scum but claims innocence when those right wingers are targeted for death.

GOP Rep Vows to Carry His Gun ‘From This Day Forward’
“I have a carry permit.”
A Republican representative from New York is vowing to carry his gun with him at all times after his colleagues were targeted in the shooting on Wednesday that wounded Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA).
“You look at the vulnerability, I can assure you from this day forward, I have a carry permit, I will be carrying when I’m out and about,” Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) said. “On a rare occasion I’d have my gun in the glove box or something, but it’s going to be in my pocket from this day forward.”
Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) was at the baseball field when the attack occurred. He believes that if more people were armed, the shooter would’ve been brought down much sooner:
“If this had happened in Georgia, he wouldn’t have gotten too far. I had a staff member who was in his car maybe 20 yards behind the shooter, who was pinned in his car, who back in Georgia carries a 9-millimeter in his car.”
According to NBC News, Loudermilk believes congressman and staff are stymied by Washington’s strict gun laws and that keeps them without protection even when they travel to Virgina, where gun laws are more reasonable. He wants “some kind of reciprocity” that would allow reps and staff to carry even if their licenses are from other states.
