    This summer is #ResistanceSummer, and it’s already getting hot with attempts to intimidate and attack Trump administration officials, Republicans, and Trump supporters.

    Here are some of the incidents we’ve covered just in the past three weeks:

    NY Man Arrested After Threatening To Kill Trump Supporters at Republican Congressman’s Campaign HQ 

    Man Rips MAGA Hat Off Teen’s Head in Restaurant, Throws Drink in His Face 

    Vandals Smashed Nebraska GOP’s Office Windows, Painted ABOLISH ICE on Sidewalk 

    Suspect Arrested for Threatening to Kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s Children 

    Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell Accosted by Immigration Protesters 

    Protestors Surround Sr. White House Advisor Stephen Miller’s Apartment 

    DHS Issues Safety Warnings After Official Found Burned Animal Carcass on Porch 

    Florida AG Pam Bondi Accosted By Protestors At Tampa Movie Theater 

    Sarah Sanders Kicked Out of Virginia Restaurant Because She Works For Trump 

    #TheResistance crosses another line, confronts DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at home 

    “Justice-minded” Website Doxes Sr. White House Advisor Stephen Miller 

    DC Socialist Group Chases DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out of a Restaurant Shouting, “Shame!” 

    None of this is coincidence. There is active encouragement of such intimidation from politicians like Maxine Waters, Uncivil war declared: Rep. Maxine Waters calls on #TheResistance to find and confront Trump officials:

    These calls for intimidation are all over the mainstream cable media:

    Even the NY Times Editorial Board is calling for Democrats and progressives to go all “Godfather” on Trump and Republicans.

    Now it’s happened again to Mitch McConnell, the Courier-Journal reports (emphasis added):

    A group of protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Bardstown Road in Louisville Saturday, calling out “Abolish ICE,” before adding they know where he lives.

    McConnell was out to lunch with Kentucky’s outgoing House Majority Floor Leader Jonathan Shell, who was upset in his May primary. Shell confirmed the two had lunch, calling the protesters “a small group of extremists.”

    The interaction was captured on video and shared with Courier Journal.

    In it, someone asks McConnell, “Where are the children? Where are the babies, Mitch?” — an apparent reference to the separation of children from families at the southern U.S. border.

    “What are you doing to get the babies back?” someone asks in the clip.

    McConnell, wearing a green shirt tucked into blue jeans, isn’t shown reacting or responding to the protesters. He walks past a sign for Bristol Bar & Grille, turns a corner and gets into a vehicle.

    Before he gets into the car, someone can be heard saying, “We know where you live.”

    Shell called the remark a “not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook,” adding that it was “very distasteful.”

    The “we know where you live” line clearly was a threat:

    Asura: “Now you’re advocating fascism.”

    How? How is countering fascist violence itself fascist? Would you defend yourself? What about others? Would you look the other way while someone else is bullied?

    “Feel free, of course, to take this to mean that I support the antifa and the left, as you’ve declared Milhouse does.”

    My judgement on Milhouse is based on years of reading him and trying to square his inconsistent application of the law. He defines it narrowly to the Left and broadly to the right. So I find him suspect. It’s not a frivolous accusation.

    “I just mean that what’s bad for the goose is also bad for the gander.”

    Now you are supporting my own argument. I’m not sure you’ve been following the discussion very closely.

    But at least you aren’t afraid to discuss and debate the issue. There’s that I guess.

      Take the recent inaguration day riots. All the perps got off, no consequences. The rule of law failed us. Which means they are incentivized to do it again and again.

      The rule of law has not failed us – our judicial system is designed to acquit ten guilty men before one innocent man is jailed for crimes he did not commit.

      The prosecutors could not prove to the jury that the indicted rioters were directly involved in the vandalism and robbery at hand.

      Equally, though, those who defended their property with the threat of lethal force were not arraigned in other recent riots.

      You are directly advocating for the use of lethal force not in defense, but in offensive actions against people whose political philosophy runs counter to yours.

      Are those people asking for it? Hell yes they are. Would it be the best thing, politically and for public relations? No. It would be a far, far better story and optics if ‘antifa’ was clearly and unreservedly the aggressor, beating down unarmed, unarmored, formerly peaceful protesters. Your desired action results in the optics of ‘mutual combatants’ and leads to ‘a pox on both their houses.’ …Which, since the primary media sources are decidedly left leaning, means that they will only broadcast things that are good for them.

      It is bad for the left to support these tactics. It would be bad for the right to support them as well.

      Is it wrong to defend yourself? God no. But make -very- certain that you are defending yourself, and that there is no way for unscrupulous people to craft a negative narrative.

      Fen, your comments here make it very easy to ascribe a negative narrative to the…hypotheticals you suggest.

    As much as I despise Mitch McConnell, I feel the proper response to “we know where you live” would have been to turn, smile, and quietly reply, “and we know where you live.”
