91% of Democrats See Political Violence Coming. What That May Mean for You

July 25, 2019

The Washington Examiner reports that the vast majority of Democrats expect to see politically-motivated violence resulting from the current political war of words. In fact, 91% of Democrats believe this, compared to “only” 61% of Republicans.

Here’s an excerpt from the Examiner story:

After a week that saw President Trump and his foes toss toxic words at each other, there is now a warning that the next phase could be “violence.”

Nearly 8 of 10 Americans told the Pew Research Center that supporters for both sides could “act” on the politically charged rhetoric with violence. It was higher for Democrats, 91%, than Republicans, 61%.

“Could be” violence? Have the folks at Pew been living under a rock? Have they forgotten the Bernie bro from Illinois who tried to assassinate Congressional Republicans?

From Buzzfeed:

At around 7:06 a.m., a man in a blue T-shirt approached the field and fired 62 7.62x39mm rounds through a lawfully purchased Century International Arms SKS-style semiautomatic assault rifle, according to Alexandria’s elected prosecutor. The shooting, he concluded, was “an act of terrorism” that was “fueled by rage against Republican legislators.” The day was one in a continuum of violent, surreal days over the past year, from mass shootings to Charlottesville.

You may love them, or you may disagree with almost everything they stand for, but that morning, the roughly two dozen people on that field just tried to stay alive. Those nine minutes were a near miss of modern American history, between the dark aftermath of a deadly, mass political assassination and our own reality, in which most people don’t think very often about June 14, 2017, the difference between everything changing and almost nothing changing at all.

Read a vivid description of what happened at the link.

 

Meanwhile, over at Law Enforcement Today, they have expressed serious concerns about the possibility of more political violence. Obviously.

91% of Democrats and 61% of Republicans surveyed by the Pew Research Center believe that the political war of words will escalate to violence.

These “words” either involve law enforcement or are directed at members of the law enforcement community, since our police officers are the first line of defense in protests and neighborhood “assemblies.”

But not only for law enforcement officers.

This translates directly into violence towards our police in a very simple way – Trump supports law enforcement, and the mainstream media doesn’t. Liberals attack those they’ve been programmed to attack, and the enemies are delineated very clearly – conservatives, the police, the military, and anyone who supports any of these elements.

Citizens with only a minimal disdain for authority or those in police work have been effectively radicalized, and watching this unfold has been significantly horrifying. It’s nearly impossible to attack the President physically, so people are motivated to attack those he supports and those who support him…

Rhetoric is programming and radicalizing people, it seems, and with violent results. What we thought of liberals in their tolerant, “hug everybody” and advocate for the environment and animals agenda has devolved into straight out violence against anyone they disagree with – and our police and conservative leaders have been some of the first to be attacked.

Among my close friends, we talk the brewing civil war in America.  And how long it will take before it goes “hot”.   We agree in our belief that given how the far left’s violence has heated up, it’s almost inevitable that incidents of armed conflict will happen. It’s not a matter of if, but when. And where.

At this point in one of those conversations, I said, “I wish I knew where…”  To avoid trouble, of course.

They chuckled. “Don’t worry. They’ll come to you.”

And they already have, puncturing my tires at my home a little over a year ago in the dead of night. How long will it take for one or more of them to work up a little more courage and employ some direct action against me and/or my family instead of just property? I try not to worry about that.

But looking at the larger picture, how many besides me will have political violence touch our families in some way? Will your family become involved? Are you prepared for political violence?

    The Democrats are Bolsheviks and the tool of a Bolshevik is violence.

    Many people believe a civil war is coming to the USA.

    This is just my thoughts/opinion but I would not be surprised if the Bolsheviks don’t start massive riots in an effort to influence the 2020 elections.

    The democrats are that crazy.

    In Portland They have attacked baby strollers with babies aboard; Beaten bystanders until they busted heads open.

    We owe the Democrats nothing!

    Only 61% of Republicans believe this possible?

    At my age, I’m hoping to be dead before it happens, but I think I will still be around. I hate the idea, but I cannot see the increasing polarization going away. It seems to get worse every day.

    Civil war? I’m not sure how that will work and I don’t look forward to it. But, it seems likely.
