With the demonization of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in full swing, an angry mob descended on the Louisville home of the Kentucky Republican.
Democrats who no longer honor elections nor believe in the integrity of intentions have turned to the tactics of intimidation and political violence that have been the trademark of some of history’s most infamous regimes.
Now that a summer of hate and rage is spilling over into a fall of discontent, the death of ailing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and President Trump’s historic chance to appoint three justices in his first term have resulted with boots on the ground.
On Saturday with Democrats and the media opening a full-frontal assault on McConnell in order to bully him into not holding a vote on Ginsburg’s replacement, the mobs were summoned and in a tactic that is now commonplace, surrounded the home of a political figure.
At least one protester was arrested Saturday after a group of about 100 people gathered outside the Kentucky home of Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell.
The Senate majority leader is a key figure in determining whether a nominee appointed by President Trump will succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before Election Day.
“Ruth Sent Us,” and “No Ethics No Shame,” read some of the signs carried by crowd members in Louisville, local FOX station WDRB-TV reported.
“Hey-hey, ho-ho, Mitch McConnell has got to go,” others chanted.
Reports were unclear on whether McConnell was at home in Kentucky or in Washington on Saturday.
In addition to the impending battle over the court vacancy, McConnell, 78 – a member of the Senate since 1985 — also faces a reelection fight on Kentucky’s November ballot.
The mob was not practicing proper social distancing which clearly is not required for riots and “peaceful” protests when the Democrats’ shock troops are involved.
McConnell’ was doxed on Twitter, a practice that continues to be tolerated while putting the lives of victims in peril – doxing should be a felony and if congressional Republicans had a spine, they would craft legislation to outlaw it instead of cowering from the mob.
A Democrat front group is allowing fundraising for an ominous campaign to “Get Mitch Or Die Trying” which can be interpreted as a call to violence or personal harm to a top politician and yet Twitter allows it even if it is a violation of their policies which are always selectively enforced.
There used to be a time when practices like this were unthinkable in America but with the Democrats having shed their masks to reveal the fascists beneath, the menacing of their adversaries in their homes has replaced legitimate discourse.
Lousiville has been a hotbed of angry mob action with a heavily armed cadre of black militants showing up for the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago and ongoing protests over the shooting of Breonna Taylor, a woman who was killed during a drug raid whose only crime was keeping the wrong company.
With the Democrats in full desperation mode and the future of the SCOTUS in the balance look for the mobs to become larger and more aggressively violent this week and beyond.
