A female GOP candidate in Minnesota was assaulted in a what appears to be a rising trend in violence towards Republicans. Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm after she caught a man tearing down Republican political signs.
Anderson reportedly ran to her car and put it in reverse, which then prompted the man to finally leave her alone. During the incident in which he punched her, he was also berating her saying horrible things.
Per Free Beacon: “It was just insane. He was charging at me, saying, ‘Why don’t you go kill yourself?'” Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon. “To have someone physically coming after you and attacking you is just disheartening.”
This incident is under investigation by the Plymouth Police Department. A spokesperson states that they have identified a possible suspect, but they did not state who it is.
This could be the result of more members of the Democratic Party using violent rhetoric and suggesting that people bring a confrontation to Republican Party members.
What also happened this week was that the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party suspended their communications staffer, William Davis, for his own violent rhetoric language suggesting that Democrats are bringing Republicans to the guillotine.
“The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would “bring [Republicans] to the guillotine” on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats during her tenure as the state party leader and that death threats are no laughing matter.
“The overt hatred and violence that has become prevalent from many Democrats towards Republicans in recent times is unlawful, unacceptable, and downright scary,” she said in an email. “Yes, we have free speech and the right to peacefully assemble, but these words and actions by the left have gone too far. … He should have been terminated immediately.”
There seems to be a major problem with violent rhetoric turning into criminal acts committed by Democrats against Republicans.
It does not help when people like Maxine Waters and Eric Holder say things that suggest violence, even if they are joking or using the phrases as rhetoric.
Where are the major members of the Democratic Party when their followers are committing acts of violence and hurting people?
You can hear a pin drop and that’s the problem.
