Special Kind of Stupid “More Than 12,000 Tweets Have Called for Trump’s Assassination Since the Inauguration.” — headline, The [UK] Daily Mail, 2/3/17

“[I]t is toxic out there right now … How far will the progressive movement go to try to intimidate us?” — Rep. Mark Walker (R, NC), Politico, 2/7/17

“We have never in living memory seen an electorate as fired up and angry and engaged as they are right now.” — Ben Wikler, Moveon.org bigwig, celebrating leftist protests, Real Clear Politics, 1/31/17

Well, Wikler is right, if by “fired up” he means his side is literally setting fires to silence opponents. The hate and mayhem being unleashed by today’s unhinged left is beyond extreme — and Gara LaMarche, president of Democracy Alliance, can barely contain his glee. According to The Hill, he exclaims, “These are ordinary people rising up.” Um, no. There are many terms to describe leftists “rising up” today — violent agitators, maniacal paid thugs, malicious malingerers — but “ordinary people” they are not. The mainstream media is careful not to show any of this, but by far the biggest bullies, bigots, discriminators, and thuggish intimidators are on the left:

Media Unhinged

  • “[I]t’s about time for a Presidential assassination.” — Monisha Rajesh, UK Sunday Telegraph columnist (now fired), on Twitter, 11/8/16

  • “If Trump gets dementia, how will we know?” — Lawrence O’Donnell, msnbc host, on Twitter, 1/11/17
  • “An American first: a President who was obviously mentally ill the moment he took office. Thanks, Comey.” — Paul Krugman, New York Times columnist, on Twitter, 1/24/17
  • “Don’t Look Now: It’s President Pence! Donald Trump Can Be Deposed, Even Without Impeachment.” — Salon.com, 1/25/17
  • “No, Nancy [Pelosi], you’re not there to find ‘common ground’ with the fascists … Pick up every ax they’ve used — obstruct, block, suppress — and swing them twice as hard … Dems, if you won’t filibuster this Gorsuch pos, we’re going to replace you with people who will and can.” — Dan Savage, syndicated sex advice columnist, “Confidential to the Democrats,” at The Stranger blog, 2/1/17
  • “As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there. Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down?” — Katy Tur, interviewing Sen. Deb Fischer (R, NE) on msnbc, implying President Trump will kill reporters, quoted at Real Clear Politics, 2/6/17

  • “Pardon me, gop leaders. This guy is out of his f–king mind. He needs to be removed from office. He is a danger to you (and everyone).” — Keith Olbermann, GQ writer, on Twitter, 2/6/17
  • “President Trump told a U.S. military audience that there have been terrorist attacks that no one knows about because the media chooses not to report them. It has been a busy day for Presidential statements divorced from reality.” — Scott Pelley, on cbs News, via Mediaite, 2/7/17
  • “Ladies and gentlemen, we were attacked on Dec. 7, 1941, we were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, and we were attacked on Nov. 8, 2016.” — Thomas L. Friedman, comparing Trump’s election to Pearl Harbor and 9/11, in The New York Times, 2/14/17
  • “Watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. It was the closest we came to a debilitating Constitutional crisis, until maybe now … This Russia scandal is … cascading in intensity seemingly by the hour. And we may look back and see, in the end, that it is at least as big as Watergate. It may become the measure by which all future scandals are judged.” — Dan Rather, on Facebook, 2/14/17
