Every election cycle, the liberal left makes a point of claiming that any pro-gun candidate is a danger to the American people. They tout twisted statistics to show how paranoid concealed carry gun owners are whack jobs looking for a fight, how your child could be the next victim. But what about the danger they themselves pose to anyone who disagrees with them?
Most liberals make themselves out to be peace-loving, anti-violence types who simply want everyone to get along. They preach forgiveness and acceptance, claiming it is the close-minded, backwards conservatives who are responsible for all the wrongs of the world. Everyone has the right to live their life as they see fit and express their opinions freely. Until your opinion differs from theirs, that is.
When faced with someone who is unwavering in their counter opinion, it is not the gun toting conservative who turns to violence, it is not the middle class patriot who grabs someone by the neck and attempts to instill their own beliefs through fisticuffs. No, it is the peace-loving liberal who resorts to physical violence and intimidation.
Don’t believe me? Look no further than the current Presidential campaign trail. Time and again Trump and his supporters have been targeted by supporters of Clinton or Sanders:
March 12, Chicago – protesters, fueled by social media, swarmed a Trump rally. So many protesters showed up that Trump’s speech was cancelled due to safety concerns. Sanders supporters claimed this was a “victory.”
March 19, Arizona – protesters blocked area roadways, forcing Trump supporters to walk as far as 3 miles to gain access to his speech. At least 3 protesters were arrested by police.
May 24, Albuquerque – protesters lit fires, smashed doors and throw rocks outside a Trump rally and, when police intervened, they jumped on police vehicles and reportedly injured a police horse.
June 2, San Jose – Trump supporters reported being spit on and being hit by eggs and water bottles. One attendee claims protesters stole his Trump hat and set it on fire, an incident reportedly captured on video.
Yes, as the liberal protesters are famous for saying, Americans have a right to free speech. But this is not free speech; this is hate speech and a public safety issue. As far as free speech goes, what about the Trump supporters or anyone else who disagrees with you? Have they somehow given up their rights simply because their view is different than yours? Are they now free game because they have exercised their right to free speech?
This type of behavior is contrary to every belief the liberal left reports to stand for and exactly the reason why so many Americans are willing to support someone from outside the system. What are they going to do IF Trump should actually be elected? Will there be riots? Will Trump supporters be targeted because of their vote? If so, we will be no better than any other nation which allowed political ideals to destroy all that our forefathers worked so hard to build.
