(National Sentinel)Â Marxists on the Move: Democrat Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware made clear this week what his party has turned into: A group of Marxist ‘revolutionaries’ who seek to not only overturn elections by force but also destroy the civil society in the process.
During an appearance on MSNBC with Chuck Todd Wednesday, the host asked Coons what he thought about all of the Leftist harassment of Republican colleagues regarding the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Specifically, Coons was asked “aboutÂ mailed coat hangers, threatening voicemails, and other tactics directed towards senators who may vote to confirm Kavanaugh,” theÂ Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Iâ€™ve got to ask you about some of the tactics, about some of these special interest groups,” Todd began. He went on to mention the “coat hangers sent to Senator Susan Collinsâ€™s office, some really nasty voicemails that have been played, you know, the tactics.” After recognizing that “thereâ€™s a lot of passion,” he asked, “What do you make of ’em?”
The answer should have been simple: Violence and threats of violence are unacceptable forms of political protest in America.
The WFB noted:
Coons seized on the general idea of passion and avoided commenting specifically on theÂ threats madeÂ against his Senate colleague Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine). “There is a huge amount of passion, as I think the whole country saw,” Coons replied. He noted that passion has been exemplified byÂ the many arrestsÂ made during Kavanaughâ€™s confirmation hearings and the many calls made by constituents, and he called those actions “well justified.”
“Passion” is not violence or threats of violence. To conflate the two is disingenuous.
But it appears to be the ‘buzzword’ — the narrative — the Left has settled on to excuse such unacceptable behavior. As the WFB noted further:
The dissembling focus on protestorâ€™s “passion” in lieu of their misconduct did not begin with Coons. MSNBC contributor Yamiche AlcindorÂ did the sameÂ just yesterday. “When you listen to those [abusive messages] and having been out on the campaign trail, it’s the passion of people,” Alcindor said. “It’s obviously abusive and the language that’s being used is abhorrent, but you also feel like they’re talking about life-and-death issues.“
‘Life or death issues?’ The appointment of a Supreme Court justice?Â Really?
The only ‘life and death’ issue the Left is concerned about is maintaining their ‘right’ to kill babies. How sick can you get?
Make no mistake about it: Today’s Democratic Party is no longer the party of JFK and LBJ. It’s a party increasingly filled with Marxist hoodlums, maniacs, and Left-wing Brown Shirts who have decided that shredding the social fabric of the country is preferable to engaging in our traditional forms of political protest and involvement.
And they are willing to burn the country down in order to steal power.
