The Mask of Anarchy: ‘Resist’ Democrats Incite Jacobin Violence and Chaos

Oct. 3, 2018 (EIRNS)—The hysterical demands from “Resist” Democrats and like-minded anarchists to stalk and harass anyone who opposes them—particularly Republicans—in order to turn political discourse into a blood sport, are reaping violent results.

Recall that on June 23 California Democrat Maxine Waters told a Los Angeles crowd that,

“if you see anybody from that [Trump] 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 that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

Here’s what Waters’ marching orders have wrought:

“MeToo” protesters are roaming around the halls of Congress creating disturbances when possible, ostensibly to defend Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Yesterday, a spokesman for Republican Rep. Andy Harris of Maryland, reported that a group advocating marijuana legalization tried aggressively to force its way into the Congressman’s office, slightly injuring Harris in the process. On Oct. 1, protesters stalked and harassed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as he walked through Reagan National Airport.

Over the past 24 hours, President Donald Trump, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) have received suspicious envelopes. The letter to Trump was intercepted by the Secret Service outside the White House. NBC reports that two people from the Houston campaign headquarters of Senator Cruz were hospitalized after a “white powdery substance” was discovered in a letter sent to that office. Envelopes containing the deadly ricin toxin were sent to General Mattis and to Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson, but intercepted at the Pentagon mail facility outside the main Pentagon building.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson offered an appropriate commentary on the current national climate. In discussing his new book, Ship of Fools, on “Fox and Friends” yesterday, he described what’s occurring today as “terrifying.” He said he had grown up around liberals in California and Washington, D.C., who “believed in free speech, and due process, and color blindness.” Now,

“you are seeing these exact same people crush speech, deny due process and tell us that the most important thing about people is their DNA and their skin color. It’s a mirror image of the way they were, and it’s terrifying and Orwellian. It is a threat to all of us, liberal and conservative, and we should honestly all speak up every time they challenge those basic American values.”
