Deranged Leftist Mobs a Sign of Republican Success

I’ve been reading and hearing a lot lately about the mob wing of the Democratic Party. They respond to Republican successes with violence, rioting, threats, assaults, intimidation, and harassment. They are the Brownshirts of the Democratic Party. Every mob has leaders and this one is no exception. The leadership in the Democratic Party encourages the mob to continue their actions and are responsible for everything they do. The only question is do the Democrats know what they’re doing? Matt Walsh wrote about the mob for the Daily Wire and concluded that one of two possibilities is true:

1. These leading Democrats are too stupid to know what they’re doing.
2. These leading Democrats know exactly what they’re doing.

Of course, they know what they’re doing. They know their audience, they know their messengers (the media), they know their victims (Republicans and those on the right), and they know their own culpability. And they don’t care. They want the mob to act. They want there to be violence, rioting, threats, assaults, intimidation, and harassment. They are counting on it.

Senator Rand Paul has commented on the rhetoric from the left.

Newser – Already the target of death threats, including from a person who threatened to chop up his family with an ax, Rand Paul worries the current political climate could spawn deadly violence. “I fear that there’s going to be an assassination … I really worry that somebody is going to be killed,” the Republican senator from Kentucky told WHAS on Tuesday, referring to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and ongoing protests in Washington. “Those who are ratcheting up the conversation, they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence,” he added, referencing Sen. Cory Booker’s call in June for activists concerned with ending homelessness to “get up in the face of some congresspeople,” per The Hill.

“What he doesn’t realize is that for every 1,000 persons who want to get up in your face, one of them is going to be unstable enough to commit violence,” Paul said, per Time. “When I was at the ballfield and Steve Scalise was nearly killed, the guy shooting up the ballfield … was yelling, ‘This is for health care.’” His comments echoed a recent CNN op-ed by his wife, Kelley Paul, who also called out Booker. “Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol—is this the way to express concern or enact change?” she wrote. Describing “violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level,” she added, “I now keep a loaded gun by my bed.”

As someone who was attacked in his own yard by a Democrat neighbor, Senator Paul has a unique perspective on the incitement of leftist reprobates.

Leading Democrats have urged their followers to act like mobs.

  • A Democratic terrorist and Bernie Sanders supporter who tried to mass murder GOP lawmakers at a baseball practice in 2017.
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) being attacked at his home by his Democratic neighbor.
  • Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) urging people to harass Trump administration officials.
  • Far-left groups forcing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen from restaurants while they were eating with their families.
  • Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) calling for people to “get up in the face” of members of Congress.
  • Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder saying: “When they go low, we kick them.”
  • Two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton saying that Democrats “cannot be civil” towards Republicans.
  • Far-left activists pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing.

There have been other such instances. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife were harassed when leaving a restaurant. Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was harassed and forced to leave a restaurant. All with the encouragement and blessing of the Democratic leaders.

Hillary Clinton said in an interview recently that, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back to the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Let me translate this for you. What she is saying is that as long as the Democrats are out of power, the mob violence and harassment will continue.

After the fiasco surrounding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Derek Hunter of Townhall asked “Is there a decent Democrat left in America?”

There used to be Democratic Members of Congress who called themselves “Blue Dogs,” moderate Democrats who were concerned about our border and national security and were concerned with out of
control spending and government growth. They’re gone now, extinct. Replaced by people embracing socialism and demanding a man’s life be destroyed because he thinks wrong. They’re chasing public
officials out of restaurants and threatening their children. They’re demanding people be fired for tweeting something they deem offensive or donated to a cause they oppose.

They are, universally, awful. And they’re only getting worse.

Will anyone with a (D) after their name stand up to this insanity, will any of them put the good of the country above that of the progressive agenda? Or even suggest pumping the brakes a little and telling their fellow party members the presumption of innocence should be afforded to Judge Kavanaugh? So far, none have.

Are there any decent Democrats left in politics? The answer is no, there are not.

How do the Republicans combat such an opponent? What tactics should be used to oppose them and their mobs?

My friends at American Thinker equate the actions of the left with Satan, saying that the actions of the left and what Satan would prescribe are essentially identical.

Truth means nothing to leftists. The ends justify the means, and they will literally say or do anything to achieve their aims. They’ll use violence – Antifa, BLM, rioting, and attacking Trump supporters – and intimidation (doxxing public officials and confronting them in various public places) while calling conservatives fascists and blaming them for the unrest. They’ll rail against “racism” one moment and then excoriate a race (whites) the next. They’ll preach equality while practicing inequality and discrimination, as with quotas and affirmative action. They’ll claim to care about female victims (Kavanaugh-Ford affair) and then smear female victims (Rep. Keith Ellison case). They’ll say, “Do it for the children,” using kids as human props, while abetting the brutal killing of children in the womb. They’ll preach tolerance but then insist this means “safe spaces” excluding conservatives and whites and that opposing views must be squelched. They’ll say it’s un-American to question election outcomes – as H. Clinton did prior to Nov. 8, 2016 – but upon losing scream how an election was “stolen,” as leftists did after Nov. 8, 2016. Theirs is the ideology of Anything Goes.

In fact, leftists will swear that Truth (properly understood as objective) itself doesn’t even exist, that everything is shades of gray – but then turn about and sing blatant black-white tunes portraying their political opponents as evil. This is similar to Satan, who knows that God’s rules exist but doesn’t believe they should be considered “Truth.” Leftists will superciliously scoff at traditionalists’ moral positions and insist everything is relative. But they really want to play God and have everything be relative to themselves – like the Devil.

It’s a very compelling argument. So the question is, how do people who espouse decency respond to such tactics? What’s the best way to keep heaping defeat after defeat on unhinged lefties?

First, knowing the opponent and their tactics is a must. The left plays dirty, ruthlessly, mercilessly, and will destroy lives without hesitation to achieve their goals. Even when a few of their own get hit by friendly fire, that means nothing to them as long as their objectives are accomplished.

Second, stand firm. No, I don’t mean to stand up in the restaurant and yell back at them. That would accomplish absolutely nothing. By stand firm, I mean politically. Maintain the conservative positions. Stand up for fellow conservatives. Senator Lindsey Graham at the Kavanaugh hearing is exhibit A on this. Don’t be intimidated and change your position. These people are not going to suddenly like you and stop getting in your face if you succumb to their coercion.

Third, label your opponent for what they are. Republicans have done well at this recently. Label the mob a mob. Call out Democrats who encourage mob tactics. Put them on the defensive.

The Republican National Committee has released an ad that I hope is playing in a lot of battleground states. It’s a great ad that shows exactly who the Democrats have become.

With every Republican success, the Democrats become more and more deranged. They absolutely cannot stand it and they don’t know how to respond other than with the mob mentality. It’s actually a wonderful thing to behold.
