Leftist Political Violence is the New Normal

      Leftist political violence I the new norm in the United States. In just a few short months since Donald Trump's election as president, the left has devolved from rioting over the results of a free election to celebrity fantasies of presidential assassination to a progressive gunman with a literal hit list opening fire on Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice. It is only going o get worse.
      The day before the shooting incident which seriously wounded US Rep. Steve Scalise and five other, a car with Louisiana license plates pulled up beside a truck in Indiana with a “Make America Great Again” flag and fired four shots. Fortunately, no one in the truck was injured. How deranged does one have to be to open fire on someone else solely because of who he supported for president?
      Later on this week, a Starbucks customer in north Carolina was openly mocked b staff for wearing a Trump t-shirt. They publicly laughed at her and wrote “Build a Wall' on her cup of coffee. While not as serious an incident as being shot at, the lady's experience is indicative of the growing sense among the left that conservative are evil and should be viewed with utter contempt.
     I am an adamant believer in personal responsibility. The decision to commit these acts rests squarely on the individuals who went through with them. Nevertheless, the leftist culture that inundates society with the false message conservatives are all racists, misogynists, and homophobes creates a permissible culture in which many progressives think they are heroic for committing hostile acts against conservatives. I reiterate—it is only going to get worse.
