It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
i'm not so sure that your claims of revulsion towards such acts will backlash on their supporters. it seems that phenomena is mostly restrained to right-wing whackos'. the guy who flew a plane into the IRS building left an online diatribe accusing politicians of taking bribes not to pass healthcare reform, yet he was connected in the media to the tea party?And, maybe there's another more important observation than merely that these people appear to be utterly foolish in their misdeeds. And that is, when one attempts to victimize political opponents: the act itself reflects not on the character and politics of the target but rather that of the aggressor.
These recent acts bring discredit and disfavor to the supporters of health care reform; whatever merits their arguments may have had, they are brushed aside by the horror and dismay people feel towards these arbitrary acts of violence.
More important, we have entered a new era of domestic terrorism and some liberals have forgotten the central principle that under girds our
representative democracy: everyone has the right to vote their conscience.
Today, those memory impaired liberals are rapidly becoming the greatest terrorist threat to our Republic and our way of life.
still, it should be good incentive for both parties to discipline their extremes.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
I think it's just extremist bull**** on both sides. The sooner nutcases like this get ferreted out and thrown in gitmo, the better.
Eric Cantor is a jackass. He couldn't make his statements solely about what happened to him? He decided to attack Democrats for being shocked that someone would cut a gas line? Yeah, that's nothing to be afraid of.
