Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I, Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, is at it again. Excerpt:
The most prominent Democrat in the country has, for all intents and purposes, just given a green light to every left-wing kook and violent sociopath to be uncivil to Republicans.
Hillary Clinton said on CNN, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” as reported by Fox News.
Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Clinton’s comments come amid escalating attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials by left-wing activists.
I may be wrong but I haven’t heard of any Democrats and their families being chased out of restaurants or threatened with bodily harm by mobs. Nor have I heard about their personal information being published online.
Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said Sunday his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, after Gardner voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Before and after the vote, thousands of demonstrators stormed the halls of Congress and steps of the Supreme Court to protest Kavanaugh.
Last week, Democratic intern Jackson Cosko, who recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, also was arrested for posting the personal information of Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia — including their home addresses.
So, where are all the doxxings by people on the right? Where are the confrontations, the shouting, the torching of police cars, the attacks with bike locks?
As a minarchist libertarian, I’ve had occasion to criticize both of the traditional sides of the political spectrum from time to time. But when it comes to this kind of assholery, it always seems to come from the radical Left.
Yes, yes, I know, Tim McVeigh (over twenty years ago) and the white supremacist assholes in Charlotte a year or so back. Fair enough. But on the Left (as witness the recent buffoonery around the Kavanaugh nomination) it’s beginning to become a habit – and Her Imperial Highness is stoking the partisan flames.
I’m sure I’m joined by plenty of rational Democrats who wise she would just shut up and go away.
