We are still a nation of laws. Our constitution—and the renewed, reasonable belief that elections matter for all of us—ensures that our political differences are largely managed through peaceful means. This year is no different.
In the past month, we have seen prominent Republicans terrorized with mailed bio-weapons, some of which turned out to be real, and some fake. We have seen prominent Democrats terrorized with mailed bombs, some of which (so far) turned out to be fake. Fake or real, the terrorist effect is the same.
The same law enforcement agencies, from local to national, must act will equal diligence, without respect to party or politics. Indeed, they were just as swift in arresting (at least one of) the bioweapon terrorist(s) who mailed ricin threats to Republicans, as they were in catching the mail-bomber who targeted Democrats. While the media has clearly chosen sides and treats threats differently depending on party (as Congressman Steve Scalise has noted), the American people see clearly.
Indeed, President Trump congratulated law enforcement and fully condemned the bomber, at a White House event for the Young Black Leadership Conference. He then went into praising these young people for their courage in the face of political and even physical attacks from the left.
Contrary to politicians who call us “bitter clingers,” or who write off 43% of us as government dependents, or who call us “deplorable,” we are the real center of power, the true guarantors of our liberty, and we choose—
Jobs not Mobs.
We will never give up. We will never give in. We will never, ever back down and we will never, ever surrender.
Because we are Americans and our hearts bleed red, white, and blue.
We are one people. We are one family. And we are one glorious nation under God.
We will decide the direction of our nation with:
Ballots, not Bioweapons.
Ballots, not Bombs.
