Push back against the lunacy of the Left!
October 15, 2018
We are living in disturbing times.
Those on the Left who can’t get their way through peaceful elections and lobbying are resorting to threats, bullying and some truly crazy behavior.
Did you see the woman clawing at the doors of the U.S. Supreme Court on the day the Senate voted to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh? This was about the craziest behavior caught on video in the last few weeks but there are plenty of examples of left-wing, Democrat-inspired American citizens coming unglued.
Then there are those in the public eye urging their followers to refuse to be civil to Republicans until Democrats are back in charge (Hillary Clinton) or to kick Republicans (Eric Holder). With the violent “antifa” crowd getting ready to establish a caliphate in Oregon, people should choose their words much more carefully.
Those who should be the most careful are elected lawmakers. They should never encourage and incite incivility, unrest or worse.
Yet that’s just what some Democrats are doing.
N.J. Sen. Cory Booker (a.k.a. “Spartacus”) suggests people should “get in the face of some Congress people.”
California Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who just described President Trump as the “poster boy for what a mob protester looks like,” last month suggested that wherever her supporters encounter a person with whose politics they disagree, “you push back on them and tell them they’re not welcome here.”
This has been happening. The owner of a Virginia restaurant insisted that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders leave the premises, and Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were just harassed out of a Washington restaurant by a mob chanting “We believe survivors.”
So what I’m asking you to do is to call the offices of Sen. Booker and Rep. Waters and tell them, politely but very firmly, that you expect them to stop inciting their followers.
Of course we have free speech in America – but as the old saying goes, that doesn’t mean you can yell “Fire!” in a crowded theatre. What these Democrat leaders are doing is no better. Just remind them of the anti-Republican violence that almost claimed the life of House Majority Whip. Steve Scalise and ask them to choose their words more carefully.
Read what Rep. Scalise has to say on the subject, and please make these calls today:
"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. As a survivor of a politically motivated attack, it is tragic to think this is an acceptable state of political discourse in our country.”

Please act today, and please pass along this email to as many others you know who may be interested.
