Queen Maxine told everyone to just start mob attacking Trump people and Republicans generally in public places.
Seems to be going well.
A few things from the last 24 hours or so.
Democrat Threatens to Kill Trump Supporters
Authorities arrested a Long Island, New York, man on Friday for threatening to kill supporters of President Trump and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) at the Republican congressman’s campaign headquarters, police said.
Police said Martin Astrof, 75, threatened to kill Zeldin’s campaign worker and other Trump supporters at Zeldin’s Nesconset campaign office in Suffolk County on Friday morning, and almost ran over the worker with his vehicle when he “backed his car up in an aggressive manner,” the New York Postreported.
Astrof, who is a registered Democrat according to Suffolk County voter registration records, fled the scene in his vehicle before authorities apprehended him at his home on Friday afternoon.
Mitch McConnell has Bad Time Dinner Time
Protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as he was leaving a restaurant in his home state on Saturday.
The group threatened to vote McConnell out of office as he walked out of the Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville and got into his car, the Courier Journal reported.
Video recordings of the encounter show other demonstrators chanting “Abolish ICE,” referring to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and “No justice, no peace.”
“Where are the babies, Mitch?” a protester was recorded asking in a video. The comments seemingly reference the thousands of migrant children who were separated from their parents from April to June under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.
Steve Bannon Book Store Misadventure
Black Swan Books in Richmond bills itself as a quaint, welcoming place – “where old books meet new friends!” – the type of local establishment where the most exciting thing to happen on any given day might be the acquisition of a rare hardcover.
On Saturday afternoon, however, the independent bookstore in Virginia’s capital became the next stop in the roving battle over civility in politics, after a customer spotted former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon inside and confronted him.
Nick Cooke, the owner of Black Swan Books, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that a woman in his store began verbally accosting Bannon when she saw him, including calling the former Trump adviser “a piece of trash.” It was shortly afterward that Cooke decided to call police, he said.
“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business,” Cooke told the newspaper. “I asked [the woman confronting Bannon] to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left. And that’s the end of the story.”
The Richmond Police Department confirmed to the Times-Dispatch that a 911 call was made Saturday afternoon but said it was canceled before officers responded.
Good job Maxine.
This is definitely how you create a situation of mass civil unrest… which would presumably result in martial law.
So okay then.
