This has been a crazy morning in a horribly crazy — years? months? ETERNITY? — in America. As Dustin wrote earlier, multiple prominent Democrats (and targets of a certain someone’s ire at his rallies, in his Tweets, and wherever people are unlucky enough to hear it speak) received suspicious packages at their homes, which turned out to be BOMBS. Yes. A LIKELY DOMESTIC TERRORIST PICKED UP ON WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS LAYING DOWN AND SENT BOMBS TO THOSE DECLARED LIARS OR ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE.
As of this writing, the home of Holocaust survivor and philanthropist George Soros, the New York home of Hillary and Bill Clinton, the home of Barack and Michelle Obama, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Manhattan office, former CIA chief John Brennan, CNN’s New York offices, and US Representative Maxine Waters all became targets of pipe bombs capable of exploding and causing grievous bodily harm to anyone nearby during detonation. It’s terrifying and unsurprising at the same time.
Do you remember when some nutjob shot at a bunch of Republican members of Congress gathered for baseball practice in June 2017? Bernie Sanders responded with:
“I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”
Senator Dianne Feinstein, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and other Democrats conveyed the same message to the victims of the attack. So how did the Republicans react to Democrats receiving pipe bombs in the mail? Well, I’ll just let Meghan McCain sum it up for you:

That’s an interesting take and by that I mean: SHUT THE ENTIRE F*CK UP, MEGHAN. No one ever died from being yelled out of an Applebee’s, Meghan. Public servants in public who hide from their constituents and ignore them until they get fed up and YELL at them is not equivalent to being BLOWN APART BY A PIPE BOMB SENT TO THE HOUSE WHERE YOU LIVE, MEGHAN. Ol’ Teddy “Ruxpin” Cruz can go through Whataburger if he gets run out of Steak N Shake, Meghan. No one can run anywhere if they are scattered in bits across the front porch where their grandchildren play sometimes.
I mean, how much of an insensitive, delirious, heinous, sub-human TWAT do you have to be to compare angry citizens heckling PUBLIC SERVANTS who fail to do the will of their bosses - US. WE THE PEOPLE, MEGHAN.
And lest you think I’m ganging up on poor little Meghan, her sentiment is echoed by a plethora of other Republicans — both members of the party and politicians within it. They are comparing minimal social discomfort in a public setting with the sheer terror of receiving a bomb at their home. AND saying that the Democratic Party is the party of violence. AND that these are all “False Flags” meant to pull attention away from, uh, the President declaring himself a Nationalist? Wait, that’s not right. A man on an airplane groping a woman and saying it’s fine to do it because the President said it was ok? Wait, that doesn’t make sense. Oooh, I know! To possibly kill or maim all of the innocent people between the starting point of the bombs and the destination to further recruit for their…mobs?
None of the leftists ostensibly targeted for pipe-bombs were actually at serious risk, since security details would be screening their mail. So let’s determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left’s mobs.— Frank Gaffney (@frankgaffney) October 24, 2018
I suppose it is just coincidence that people attacked by the President are being targeted by pipe bombs, right? As Rush “I Lost My Prescription, Can You Give Me Five More” Limbaugh claims, “Republicans just don’t do that kind of thing.” Yeah. Right.
At stake in this Election is whether we continue the extraordinary prosperity we have achieved - or whether we let the Radical Democrat Mob take a giant wrecking ball to our Country and our Economy! #JobsNotMobs pic.twitter.com/POhRivI1BZ— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2018
The Fake News Media has been talking about recent approval ratings of me by countries around the world, including the European Union, as being very low….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018
Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018
Facebook has just stated that they are setting up a system to “purge” themselves of Fake News. Does that mean CNN will finally be put out of business?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2018
I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..— Donald J.
