On today’s show I talk about how liberals are whipping their angry mob into such a frenzy that there may be no way to stop something awful from happening.
As I spelled out in my new book, liberals are appealing to emotion — fear and anger — to prevent rational thought and civil discourse. We’ve seen a lot of examples of this in the past two weeks — the Trump-is-Hitler analogies, concentration camps, the secretary of Homeland Security harassed at a restaurant and at home, and now Sarah Sanders refused service at a Virginia restaurant — the mob is reaching a fever pitch. Someone is going to get violent. If you truly believe your opponent is evil and they are the next Hitler, what other end could there be?
We saw this play out last year when a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to kill as many Republicans as possible after weeks of media coverage and liberal claims that GOP policies on health care would cause the deaths of tens of thousands, and we’re seeing it again now. California Congresswoman, bigot and dim-bulb Maxine Waters laid out the new rules at a mob rally where she said, “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Make no mistake — this is not by accident; it is by design. The only question is will Democrats be able to delay that “something awful” from happening until after the election?
