Politics in recent decades has been a relatively peaceful process by which people use debate and reason to assure the primacy of their ideas and attain office by which to implement these ideas. But all that has changed. Now acts of political violence and intimidation are being committed on an almost daily basis.
Despite the huge amount of Fake News stories about Trump supporters being violent in the aftermath of the election (all of which have been debunked), it is actually the Left that has been causing the trouble. From damaging and burning property in protest to attacking Trump supporters whilst wearing black masks, violence is on the streets of America.
It is worth remembering that violence is where people turn when their ideas fall apart. The DNC’s ideology has been weighed and measured, and has shown itself to be unconvincing. Instead of committing violent acts, they need to come up with better ideas.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Political violence has been increasingly common as left-wing organizations have whipped up mobs against Republicans and supporters of the president.
A popular parade in Portland, Oregon last month was cancelled after threats of violence against one of the groups participating — a local Republican organization.
An email warning parade organizers promised 200 or more protesters would rush into the parade and drag the Republican marchers out, if that’s what it took to keep them from participating. “You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the email warned. Portland has been a site for organized left-wing protests, which have often turned into violent riots.
