A collection of stories of leftist attacks on prominent Republicans

By John Ruberry

Here’s a reminder that we’ve moved beyond spir­ited debate within our polit­i­cal cul­ture into rude­ness and thug­gery. Take a look at the selec­tion of sto­ries about that descent towards anarchy.

The most recent abom­i­na­tion occurred just two days ago as the Sen­ate Major­ity Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-​KY), has harassed at a Louisville restau­rant. All of these other sto­ries are from 2018, except the shoot­ing of House Major­ity Whip Steve Scalise (R-​LA). He was seri­ously wounded by a lib­eral activist at a prac­tice of the Repub­li­can con­gres­sional base­ball team.

Each arti­cle involves, directly or indi­rectly, an elected Repub­li­can offi­cial, a cur­rent or for­mer top mem­ber of a GOP admin­is­tra­tion mem­ber, or a can­di­date for pub­lic office.

Remem­ber, a blue wave may be com­ing. Are you pre­pared for it?

Here’s a reminder that we’ve moved beyond spirited debate within our political culture into rudeness and thuggery. Take a look at the selection of stories about that descent towards anarchy.

The most recent abomination occurred just two days ago as the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has harassed at a Louisville restaurant. All of these other stories are from 2018, except the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). He was seriously wounded by a liberal activist at a practice of the Republican congressional baseball team.

Each article involves, directly or indirectly, an elected Republican official, a current or former top member of a GOP administration member, or a candidate for public office.

Remember, a blue wave may be coming. Are you prepared for it?
