Can you say, “escalation” with me?
Two Republican candidates running for office in Minnesota were reportedly assaulted in two incidents on the campaign trail this weekend.
Police are currently investigating the assaults on the candidates, who are both running campaigns for the Minnesota State House, after they each said during the weekend that they were attacked.
Minnesota State Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth) claimed one man who identified himself as an anarchist charged at her Sunday afternoon after she confronted him for kicking one of her campaign signs.
Anderson said he kept her from shutting her car door before punching her in the arm.
“The idea that they will physically attack me, that is un-Minnesotan, that is not how we operate, and that’s not how we solve problems in the state,” Anderson said.
Minnesota is a Swedish colony. I imagine it’s hyper-polite, uber-diverse and super-smug.
This is yet another escalation.
Now for the second attack:
The other candidate, first-time Republican candidate Shane Mekeland of Benton County, claimed he suffered a concussion after a man punched him without warning in a bar on Friday evening. The two were reportedly discussing taxes and health care when the unprovoked attack caused Mekeland to suffer a blow to the face.
“The last thing I heard is him say – I’ll keep out the colorful language – ‘You bleepin’ people don’t give a bleep about the middle class,’” Mekeland recalled.
Mekeland said police already interviewed his alleged attacker, but police have not released his identity because no charges have been filed as of Wednesday.
Both candidates said they would be continuing their campaign activities, albeit with extra caution. Mekeland is no longer conducting door-to-door activities alone, while Anderson said she has alerted her husband to her location at all times and is campaigning with volunteers.
The attacks against Republicans come as many top figures in the Democrat Party — including Rep. Maxine Waters (R-CA), Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton — have encouraged activists to carry out uncivil behavior against conservatives and President Trump’s supporters.
It’s a shame that literally every single grass-roots right-wing organization in the United States is being hounded by the FBI and can’t provide you Republicans with on-the-ground security.
Seems like the very last group out there is about to get targeted by the MSM and summarily rounded up by the po-po.
Here, take a look.
I think we all know what comes next. “FBI Cites Far-Right Sniper Terror Plot as Reason For Arrests” – watch for that headline next.
See, while the GOP was eager to throw normal right-wing Republicans under the bus to appease the Dems, the Dems weren’t feeling so altruistic.
They kept their street troops alive and well-fed. Antifa seems to be growing in numbers and the slush fund increasing not decreasing.
Meanwhile, idk what the situation with the police is in Minnesota… but the police have effectively surrendered control of several cities to Antifa and the Lefties.
So you’re shit out of luck, eh Republicans?
No, but seriously, it sucks that these people are getting attacked.
But what can they do about it?
Cops seem to not want to do much about it. And I guess they could ask nicely for the Dems to reign in their unruly base… but I’m not holding my breath on that one.
You know, all those “It’s Happening” posters might be proven right.
It really is Happening.
Politicians are going to need armed escorts now, just like their South American equivalents.
And again, it really is all their fault.
They could have shown some spine about a year ago. They could show some spine right now even!
But they won’t. And these attacks will continue in intensity until Trump finally has the political capital to smash down on these people.
We’re going to find out after the midterms when Trump wins bigly.
