The VERY Un-Civil Left

Hot Air provided a handy (partial) list of incivilities of the Left.  We'll also talk about the genesis of all this stuff.

...On the Left, James Hodgkinson, a far left, pro-Bernie Sanders activist, grabbed a rifle and opened fire on congressional Republicans practicing for the annual baseball game in 2017. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot and could have died. It was a mass assassination attempt. In 2018, Minnesota GOP candidates have been assaulted. The spokesperson for the Minnesota Democratic Party said that Republicans should go to the guillotine. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have been harassed by mob-like behavior. Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Democrats should kick Republicans. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has egged on her supporters to harass Trump officials. Oh,and let's not forget the ricin letters sent to Secretary of Defense James Mattis or the death threats hurled at Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)....

And he DID forget the very damaging attack on Sen. Rand Paul by a crazed Lefty neighbor.

How did this crap start?

Trump was elected partly because he was not Hillary, and partly because of his remarkable empathy with the 'forgotten man (and woman)' in flyover country.  That "forgotten man" was sick and tired of watching talking heads yammer about 'prosperity' while the country's manufacturing base decamped to Red China.  He was sick and tired of smarmy wierdos wearing black robes telling him that perverts could go potty with his daughter, and of snot-nosed brainless toads telling him what "virtue" really is, from their TeeVee studio perches.  (HotAir has an excellent example in the post!!)

And the forgotten man (and woman) knew that Mordor on the Potomac, and all its pomps, and all its works, were fetid.  So the Judges, the Snot-Nosed, and the faceless drones of D.C.'s managerial class all needed a good smack across the head.

He started with the Trump 2X4, right on the nose.  The jackass is kicking back, as one might expect; but the fun has not yet begun in earnest.  "Earnest" is not something the Smarmies, the Snot-Noses, and the Drones are prepared for, by the way.  Let's hope they just STFU soon, eh?
