40 Instances of Violence or Violent Rhetoric from Left Since Trump Was Elected

But the mainstream media want you to think Republicans are dangerous.

Mark Meckler, who co-founded Tea Party Patriots, is sick and tired of the way that the media seem to gloss over the violent rhetoric of Democrats while focusing on any small thing that Republicans say and do.

"After the shooting at the Congressional baseball game, it was fashionable for pundits not to rush to conclusions, to avoid using the tragedy to score political points. Hateful rhetoric has come from both sides, the supposedly more reasonable pundits said. Hate knows no party lines. And this is true, to a point," he wrote. "Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to encourage America to take a long and hard look at the poisonous rhetoric and where it is mostly originating: the left."

To prove his point, he and a staffer named Austin Goss, over at Empower Texans created a definitive list of all of the recorded instances of violence or violent rhetoric coming from the left to the right since the election, then he divided them by month.

Here's just one month, selected at random: June:

1st- In a photo shoot, “comedian” Kathy Griffin takes a photo of her holding what appears to be the bloody decapitated head that looks exactly like President Donald Trump.

10th- Lisa Solomon, a protester with the terroristic AntiFa group, stabs a police horse with a nail on the end of a makeshift weapon.

Chelsea Gentry-Tipton, head of the Nebraska Democratic Black Caucus, tweeted that she was “laughing” about the congressional baseball shooting.Representative Claudia Tenney (R-New York) received a voicemail following the shooting that threatened “1 down, 216 to go,” a reference to the number of Republican congressmen currently.

17th- Missouri Representative Ann Wagner said she had gotten five death threats in the previous weeks, that protesters had been "vandalizing my home, showing up with masks and gravestones, and laying down on my driveway and drawing chalk outlines of dead bodies.
