Rep. Steve Scalise, a survivor of a politically motivated shooting is calling out Eric Holder on the dangers of violent, political discourse. In his Fox News opinion piece, Scalise listed the number of violent threats against Conservatives by Democrats.
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.
Rudy Peters, a Republican California Congressional candidate, was nearly stabbed while campaigning.
My office has continued to receive threats against my life that have led to arrests.
A female pro-life activist was violently assaulted by a man that has now been found guilty of eight counts of assault for this and similar incidents.
And this list goes on. The threats and the violence have not let up and instead of seeing my Democrat colleagues calling for an end, there have been calls for their supporters to keep going, to do even more to threaten Republicans.
