Posted on 10/17/2018 10:28:23 AM PDT by mandaladon
The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks.
The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would "bring [Republicans] to the guillotine" on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats during her tenure as the state party leader and that death threats are no laughing matter.
"The overt hatred and violence that has become prevalent from many Democrats towards Republicans in recent times is unlawful, unacceptable, and downright scary," she said in an email. "Yes, we have free speech and the right to peacefully assemble, but these words and actions by the left have gone too far. He should have been terminated immediately."
DFL officials did not respond to request for comment.
The suspension came days after Minnesota state representative Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm after spotting a man destroying Republican yard signs. She said the attack left her scared, and her attacker only desisted when she fled to her car and threw it in reverse.
"It was just insane. He was charging at me, saying, Why don't you go kill yourself?'" Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon. "To have someone physically coming after you and attacking you is just disheartening."

Breitbart does a good job of explaining it.
Looks like the Democrats believe in mob rule in place of the rule by law.
The Democrats are following Soviet style of making accusations with no need for evidence, just the accusation. The accused must somehow prove their innocence.
Before that the French Revolution had no need for anything more than accusations to send people to the guillotine. The accused had zero time to prove their innocence.
The Democrats are approaching bottom with their lack of respect for the rule of law. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for mob rule.
I hope that many voters prefer our representative republic to chaos that will come with Democrat rule.
[A vote for a Democrat is a vote for mob rule.]
I hope people wake up to this fact. We are now less than 3 weeks away from the mid-terms.
“Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates.

Up the ante and move the goalpost back. Use their own tactics against them. Beautiful.
You have gotta believe that the Democrats are off their rockers. Their irrational hatred of all things conservative and GOP is out-of-control, especially as to Benton County That is a very rural area which was strong for Trump in 2016. Benton County is part of East St. Cloud, an area which tilts left due to being a residential area across the Mississippi River from St. Cloud State University. So, those precincts did go for Clinton, but not by a huge margin. Going further NE from East St. Cloud, you only need to get about 1/2 mile east along MN Highway 23 to reach Trump country.
The little diner/café/saloon patrons, where the incident happened, must be hostile to such behavior against a GOP candidate.
Time to start packing heat! It would only take one or two replies with the ol’ sidearm to put an end to this crap real fast, quick and in a hurry!!
These incidents need to go viral. Anyone who has the expertise to help make them go viral should step up, and do their part! Couple the quotes & pictures with a heading such as "How those who have no defensible ideas & no moral compass debate Americans who care about the future!"
Or more simply, "The 'Democratic Party in 2018, in action. Do we dare trust such people with public office?"
Looks like they are taking Hillary’s suggestions seriously.
The left is evil.
There are a couple “William Davis” in the Marxist movements including a clergyman so we need to know more about this guy, where he came from, organizational affiliations, etc.
