Hundreds of Examples of Anti-Trump Violence Committed by Liberals

In the wake of the recent pipe bomb scares targeting liberal public figures, the narrative that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric is inciting extremism went into overdrive. Indeed, those who said nothing about “toxic rhetoric” when Steve Scalise was nearly shot to death are now happy to pretend that it’s only Trump that has inflammatory rhetoric. The horse blinders truly are on those liberal pundits – as they’ve managed to ignore literally dozens of examples of both physical attacks and threats of violence against Republicans earlier in October.

In fact, our friends at Breitbart have compiled literally hundreds of examples over the past few years.

In just October alone there were nearly 50 such incidents directed at Republicans. Here they are:

Weird – have you seen any liberals condemning those actions? Or even reporting on them?

Did you hear a peep from them on what “inflammatory rhetoric” might be inflaming them? Perhaps they were simply encouraged by Maxine Waters, who brags openly about harassing Trump supporters, or Cory Booker, who encourages his fans to “get up in the face” of Trump supporters.

That, of course, is just since October. Breitbart’s list goes all the way back to September 1st, 2015, (for reference, Trump declared his candidacy on June 16th), when someone was attacked at a bus stop for supporting Trump.

The most egregious violations involving firearms include:

  1. July 27, 2016: OH: Black Trump Supporter Shot at Cleveland Bar During Heated Political Debate
  2. March 8, 2016: 3 arrested for pulling gun on Trump supporter
  3. June 18, 2016: Man attempts to assassinate Trump in Nevada

Strangely, there weren’t the usual national calls for gun control pushed by the media following any of those incidents.

When it comes to the media endorsing violence, the list of encouragement is longer than they’d like to admit. The media as a whole (including the entertainment industry), and Democrat politicians have been on the frontlines in the calls for violence.

  60. October 11, 2018: Anti-Trump Protester Threatens to Rape Conservative Reporter

The media wants to blame the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting (which was carried out by someone who fanatically hated Trump) on Trump. By their own logic, doesn’t the media then hold responsibility for minority Trump supporters being under attack?

For as much as the liberals in the media (and government) like to condemn violence – it seems like they’re only willing to condemn it when it comes from one side.

And when it comes from their side, the blinders go back on.

A very special thanks to the folks at Breitbart, who did the yeoman’s work of compiling all these incidents. It’s very important work.
