AMAC Exclusive – By Tammy Bruce
When I was a “community organizer” for the left, there were a few times when I and others would bring up concerns about the lunatic fringe (speaking of the disturbed on our “side”). Various leadership would dismiss our concerns in a coy way. The grassroots activists were told nothing could (or should) be done about people who felt “passionately“ about the issues. Inevitably, there would be an implied wink and nod at the end of that discussion.
Now, in the midst of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it’s apparent the left’s desire for political violence has not waned but metastasized, controlling the Democratic Party through their leftist leadership.
The rhetoric smearing Justice Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing was so outrageous and vile that it set a tone and made the intentions of the Democratic Party clear. The attempt to utterly destroy a decent man because of politics was so egregious it was an invitation to anyone even slightly disturbed to take action against him.
Remarks from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2020 on the steps of the Supreme Court continued what can only be described as an incitement to violence. As he addressed an abortion rights rally, the top Senate Democrat said: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
The shocking reaction by Democratic leadership to the leaked Supreme Court draft decision in the Dobbs case also makes it clear the desire for violence has moved from a wink and a nod to outright encouragement by many on the left, including various Democratic politicians. Lori Lightfoot, the Democrat mayor of Chicago, tweeted this about the leaked draft opinion: “To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms.” That outrageous lie attempting to incite as many people as possible remains posted, and she’s not alone. A number of leading Democrats tweeted or made inflammatory statements meant to gin up as much anger and hysteria as possible and then sent out fundraising letters.
As we now know, someone did answer Lightfoot’s “call to arms,” envisioning himself as Schumer’s “whirlwind.” Nicholas Roske traveled from California to, as he told authorities, “give his life meaning” by killing Kavanaugh. The Los Angeles Times reported, “Police found a black tactical vest, a knife, a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crowbar, pistol light, duct tape, hiking boots and other items in his backpack and suitcase.” According to the police affidavit, Roske plotted to kill Kavanaugh because of his concern that gun laws would be loosened and Roe vs. Wade would be overturned.
The Democrats and everyone on the left know how deadly their rhetoric can be. Just 3 years earlier, Representative Steve Scalise and other House Republicans were practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game when a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders opened fire, grievously injuring Scalise and two others. His motive was so clear, even CNN couldn’t soft-peddle it:
“James T. Hodgkinson… defined himself publicly by his firm support of Bernie Sanders’ progressive politics – and his hatred of conservatives and President Donald Trump,” the cable news outlet reported. “…‘Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.’ he posted on his personal Facebook page on March 22. ‘Republicans are the Taliban of the USA,’ he posted in February.”
That horrific event has been pushed so far down the memory hole that Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier, a woman who serves in Congress alongside Scalise, said this on the House floor as she called for gun reform just this week: “I believe I’m the only member of this House that is a victim of gun violence. My body is riddled with bullets.”
An aide to Rep. Leo Ryan, Speier was part of the team in 1978 that went to investigate abuse allegations at Jonestown in Guyana run by cult-leader Jim Jones. As they were at a jungle airstrip preparing to leave, Ryan and four others were shot to death during an ambush. Speier, 28 at the time, was among the wounded. It is perplexing how anyone, especially her, could forget that Scalise was also riddled with bullets just four years ago during a crime of political violence. At the very least, it highlights how that attempted mass murder has been literally forgotten.
Meanwhile, after the attempted murder of Kavanaugh, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked by a reporter why a bill providing security for the justices had been blocked in the House. Pelosi dismissively and smugly declared, “Nobody is in danger over the weekend because of our not having a bill…”
What are we to think? Even after an attempted murder, Pelosi and the Democrats seem not to care. Or could it be, horribly, confirmation that things are moving along exactly as the Democrats want them to?
Pelosi and the liberal (socialist/Marxist) left are bitter hate filled individuals that would just as soon adopt communism as conservative freedom. They have nothing to offer America and will see their power base continue to decline. We can only hope they can’t confuse and deceive enough liberals in November to continue their agenda. Good riddance to all of them.
Tammy Bruce has had my respect for the last many years, I support her fully
I thought leftist LIE-berals didn’t believe in guns and the 2nd Amendment. How is it that leftists are armed?
At this point I can only conclude that they are trying to see what it takes to provoke conservatives to the point of revolt. They have already called MAGA supporters domestic terrorists. They want us to stoop to their level so they can say they were right about us all along! We still have midterms, (which can barely come soon enough), to try and turn the tide, but if that fails I fear it may get even uglier out there! Blue states continue to mail ballots to everyone, (alive, dead, citizen or not), so it’s going to be a serious challenge!
Bill C, I totally agree. If the mid terms don’t go well, America as we know it will be on life support.
Until this WH along with the Elite Deep State operatives they employ from both within & outside this administration are permanently removed & held accountable for their traitorous activities, this will continue on…Biden will be impeached shortly after the midterms & it will amount to diddlysquat…
Impeached or not, we are stuck with this corrupt man for the next ( 2.5) years along with his deputies within his Obama era cabinet, they will continue on with their destructive anti-America behavior along with their bought & paid for MSM & Big Tech social media giants…
I think America is getting ever closer to her 2nd revolution than many may realize at this point…
The wealthy elitists Democrats are behind the nonsense currently floating around the globe, i.e. bug sandwiches, micro chips for all humans for tracking purposes, electronic wallet currency controlled by the gov’t, i.e. spend your allotment, you will be s**t out of luck until they refill it again, unless they feel you don’t need it…There is talk of ending social security altogether…
No more private ownership of anything, you will have nothing & be HAPPY!
The WEF at DAVOS talked of these things & so much more with speakers like Bill Gates & George Soros fully onboard with this madness…These people have the ear of the Biden administration…
More likely that they are the heart and soul of the Biden administration.
I agree; if the dems continue their attack on conservatives, foment their followers to action, conspire with the MSM, and are not subjected to the same “justice” meted out on Republicans, there will come a time when a divided America comes to blows once again.
Sadly enough Kim, it could happen… When the freedom loving people of America finally come to the realization that Joe Biden along with his Obama era administration have DECLARED WAR on the American people, simply look at what they are doing! There are ( 2 ) key elements the enemy does early on prior to an all out attack…
( 1 ) cut off the fuel supplies & ( 2 ) cut off food supplies…
Both of those key elements are in play right this moment by the current occupiers in Washington, DC…We are experiencing the effects of an occupying force that has taken over a Federal government without firing a single bullet, with the exception of ( 2 ) years of extreme violence & murder in every major Democrat run city in America with the scofflaws, i.e. blm/antifa repeatedly released from jail by the George Soros funded district attorneys in all of those Democrat run cities…We are at WAR from within, the CCP of China is watching this play itself out very closely, personally, Russia is the least of our worries…
China is the devil in a blue dress here…
Trump was once again correct on China, he sanctioned them & made it clear, he led from a position of strength… Now look what we are stuck with, a feckless weak old senile man, that leads from a position of weakness & can only read from a tele-prompter & he CANNOT go off script for so much as a second…
The American people are experiencing this nightmare 24/7, 365 days a years now & they are NOT done with us yet…
All the best,
Hussein Obama FAST and FURIOUS Part II carried out by DICTATOR Beijing biden and SWAMP QUEEN pelosi.
Yet both took Oath to UPHOLD and DEFEND the U.S. CONSTITUTION.
But they continue to HIDE behind Armed Guards with ASSAULT RIFLES and the National Guard in Washington, D.C. PAID FOR WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS but WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to be DEFENSELESS to PROTECT OURSELVES and FAMILIES.
Though they continue with TREASONOUS ACTS against the PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
Continuation of VIOLATING the 2ND AMENDMENT of the U.S. CONSTITUTION which CLEARLY STATES, ‘SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.’
EVERY so-called anti-gun law is ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Any Bill passed for anti-gun control through States, Congress or Senate is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and THEY KNOW IT cause they took same Oath for Office.
WAKE UP AMERICA!
One person does something horrible and they blame everybody instead of that person. That’s FASCISM people.
Their “oath” only shows the level of deceit and lies that they are willing to support. They are all traitors and tyrants and should not be called Americans.
I just got through watching DVD’s of “Star Wars.” And it struck me that there is a remarkable and fitting similarity between the “Dark Side” in “Star Wars” and “Communism” in political partisanship presently espoused by the DemocRat Party. But at present I don’t see a “Luke” (or a Reagan) in the future of this Nation’s political cast.
As much as I have a strong disagreement with the government officials who IMO tend to act in support of non-Constitutional actions, I deplore violence against them. And I expect others to have the same frame of opinion. There are ways to fix the problems in the function of our governance in this Nation, but it needs the good citizens of the Nation to enact (or elect those to do it) to fix the flaws in our National Laws that allow a “Joe Hidin’ Biden” political pervert to reach an elected POTUS position. To fix this: (1) an amendment of term limits for Congressmen and high-ranking Executive positions such as FBI, IRS, etc.); (2) an overhaul to ensure that the voting system CANNOT be rigged to install puppet and incompetent leadership in political actions. The future of this Nation to avoid a violent clash among citizens is the price to be paid if this is not done post haste.
How can Ol’ Chucky make threatening statements against a judge and nothing is done?
He’s a liberal Democrat. Need I say more?
Two tiered justice system at its finest!
Democrats always accuse opponents of doing what they themselves are doing. They do not give a damn about any life except their own. Their agenda is a worldwide authoritarian government and anyone who stands in their way is going to pay the price.
SAVE THE U.S.A…Exterminate the leftie loonies in America!!!…its time for a new civil war against the commies and socialists in the U.S.A.
Of course Nancy will block security for Supreme Court Justices. She knows it doesn’t matter how a Justice dies, sleepy Joe gets to nominate another far left judge.
If the left’s hateful speech motivates some nutcase again, and he murders a justice, they’ll wash their hands of the affair and laugh all the way through the nomination process.
This is true evil!
NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT!
If a crazy does something outrageous, and it “fits” their agenda, we all know who they will blame.
The democRATS have turned themselves into very evil leftist entities.They don’t care for our country or it’s citizens.I wonder if sloppy joey is an honorary citizen of china and maybe even some other countries that are our enemies.He surely does not like AMERICA and her patriots.
Well………it is illegal probably for me to mention what I might very well do if ever within “whites of their eyes” distance of the leaders of the progressive left but I assure you that………..
I don’t want to see it come to that but if there is ever a revolution in this country, the liberal politicians had better find some very good hiding places.
Everytime I look at None-See, I feel that she becomes UGLIER than Who-Pee Goldberg!! My entire family practices gun control– WE HIT EXACTLY WHAT WE AIM AT!!
None-See is ugly because she is the devil in ewe clothing.
These ppl are breaking the law. All they have to do is always the SIMPLEST SOLUTION: arrest these lawbreaking terrorists for trying to intimidate a federal judge!They won’t though because secretly they want a “conservative” judge assassinated so they can nominate their leftist one in place. Oh they’ll mouth the words afterward about what a “travesty it is” even exploiting it for their anti-Second Amendment agenda but in private they’ll high five each other. Because the left is evil. Look at 9-11: we were attacked, it hurt us but we recovered from it. A terrorist can only damage America for a specific period then its over. What the left does lasts forever!
Another though. Where are the people who are up in arms about guns? The Dems never mentioned anything. Very suspicious.
I hate to say this but I think that Schumer, Waters & Pelosi were hoping this guy would take Kavanaugh. The guy may be a Schumer supporter.
I agree with you … sometimes the truth hurts. But I see a corollary to the situation. Maybe the public will finally see that term limits are really needed. Too many of the multi-term Congresspeople have reached the point that they carry more than just what they perceive to be Constitutional governance …that is they become somewhat tainted with what I call the God-syndrome act according to what is in their personal and/or their Party’s interest rather than what is in the citizens interests. And don’t forget, the News Media often tends to go along with them because its sells more newspapers or advertising slots. Sadly, it seems that under the DemocRat Administration, the hue and cry from most Americans is turning from “God Bless America” to “God Save America.”
Oh, yes…they were wringing their bony hands with the prospect.
Democrats know they can’t win elections by vote, they will do anything to maintain power that Biden/Obama stole. The mainstream media, big tech, public schools are lock in step with every effort to destroy America. Get right with God-get saved!!! Pray and do everything in your power to fight against these wicked people. Pray, act, boycott, homeschool, or send your kids to private school, have guns to protect yourself and your loved ones, support Christian people wherever they are, whether running for office or on the street standing up for what is right. We are literally fighting for America-A Christian nation!!! What is it our way of life worth to you? People have given the ultimate sacrifice so we have the freedoms we have!!! Biden/Obama and the rest of their wicked minions are capable of anything-whether it is the phony vax-killing way more people than covid, giving our military hardware to the taliban, pushing queers down our throats, pushing this phony electric car bs, which costs way more in all the costs associated with electric, giving all this money to the muslims for oil, which they’ll use to kill us. If you won’t stand than you don’t deserve to have freedom!!! I put Biden/Obama/Gates/Zuckerburg/Soros/Pelosi/Shumer in the same category as Putin!!!
It isn’t disbelief in God that’s the problem. After all, Pelosi and biden believe in God, and so do many of their fellow politicians on that side of the fence. I’m an atheist and would never do what they’re doing. Do you want to kick me out of the conservative party?
The vaccine has not killed more people than Covid itself, and, in fact, has helped prevent patients from requiring the services of an emergency room. You can take the vaccine or refuse it, if you prefer, but, please, get the data. The dems are providing enough fodder to defeat them in November and in 2024 without making up this kind of hyperbole.
You MUST understand that the “god” these turncoats believe in is NOT the God of the Bible. Your facts about the “vaccine” are what you want to believe. You simply cannot prove that the “vaccine” helped prevent anyone from going to the emergency room. And….You may not believe in God, but God still believes in you because He created you.
When Covid hit my former town with a frenzy, reports included the daily admissions at local hospitals, the deaths, of course, and the number of vaccinated people in the ER. For weeks if not months, those patients admitted in the ER who had not received the vaccine numbered somewhere around 99%.
After the true insurrection of democrats burning ,looting and murdering 25 policemen not a word from the left.Why do republicans only play defense ? Why do we not go after them like they do us.Why isn’t hillary not being brought to justice for creating and paying for an attempt to turn a presidential election.It’s seem like someone had something on a republican and being blackmail.We need to replace Mitch McConnell and the rest of them if they’re not willing to go after all the blatant corruption going on by the left….jus sayin’
We have some very promising young conservatives in office, and running for election, that want very much to go after these tyrants. We really need to get rid of the RHINO’s that will try to hold them back. The RHINO’s know the dirt might just come back on them if the truth comes out. We have to support those who are willing to take the heat and do what is right.
