Dems call for violence

I'm sure this will be a shock to super moderate Knapper.


Videos of Democrats during the Trump administration calling for their supporters to confront Republicans physically or warning of “civil unrest” on the streets are still active on Twitter.

Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Ted Lieu, Sen. Cory Booker, Rep. Joaquin Castro, Sen. Jon Tester, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have all made comments suggesting violence or confrontations against Republicans. All of their Twitter accounts remain active, while the videos themselves are also circulating on the massive social media site.

Rep. Maxine Waters, for example, notably called for her supporters to harass Trump administration officials in public during a rally in 2018.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.

Waters is far from alone, with Rep. Lieu warning President Trump that same year on MSNBC that there would be “widespread civil unrest” if the president fired special counsel Robert Mueller.

New Jersey’s Booker was also recorded in 2018 urging activists at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness to "get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

"Before I end, that’s my call to action here. Please don’t just come here today and then go home," he said. "Go to the Hill today. Get up, and please get up in the face of some congresspeople."

Then in 2019, Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro said Democrats would “fight [Trump] and challenge him in every way that we can in the Congress, in the courts, and in the streets and protests,” regarding if Trump declared a national emergency.

Also in 2019, Tester said on MSNBC that the way to beat Trump in the election was to “punch him in the face.”

“I mean, the truth is this guy is bad for this country,” he added.

Then in 2020, House Speaker Pelosi said during a National Governors Association meeting that when a person is involved with politics, “you have to be ready to take a punch, and you have to be ready to throw a punch.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott recently shared videos of Democrats making such comments on his Twitter account, and said that the violence seen at the Capitol last Wednesday would have occurred even if Trump had won in November, “Because Democrats have been endorsing violence as a political tactic throughout the Trump Administration.”

.I just read a noted political commentator informing us that they are all sheep.

Problem for the RW pack might be just how many wolves are suddenly deciding they want to identify as domesticated canines.

 Tester, radical commie insurrectionist.

Got it.

Closest thing I’ve seen that could be viewed as any attempt to organize is pleas to stay away from all 50 State capitols on the 20th. Leave them to the wolves.
