Many have long suspected that if you scratch an American liberal, you will find a budding fascist. I mean that in the literal sense, not as a general epithet. More and more, liberals are openly embracing violence as a path to power. Not just the nuts, either: their recently-defeated vice-presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, has called on his fellow liberals to become street fighting men. Our friends at Grabien have assembled this montage of liberals advocating, and in some cases actually committing, political violence:
Can you imagine the uproar if Donald Trump told his supporters they should start fighting in the streets, and subsequently gangs of rioting Republicans smashed windows with crowbars, beat unconscious Democrats in the street, started vehicles on fire, and so on? No, actually, I don’t think any of us can imagine what the reaction would be. A coup, maybe.
And yet, has a single prominent Democrat condemned either the calls for violence, or the actuality of violence carried out by liberals? To my knowledge, no.
