(NewsGlobal.com)- Since President Biden issued his warning about the alleged threat that supporters of former President Trump represent to the nation, there have been other incidents of political violence, many of which involved victims who supported conservative causes.
According to video reports, Biden claimed that Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans stood for radicalism that threatens our country’s core roots. The claim was made during a speech on September 1 in Philadelphia that drew a lot of flak from Conservatives and even those on the left.
Biden asserted that “MAGA Republicans” supported authoritarian governments and stoked the flames of political violence that threatened individual liberties, the pursuit of justice, the rule of law, and the very spirit of our nation in the days preceding the bizarre Philadelphia address. According to Biden, MAGA Republicans have supported political violence, and their entire ethos is akin to semi-fascism.
According to reports, several political violence occurred in the weeks following Biden’s comments. An elderly woman in her 80s was shot in Michigan as she canvassed in support of a right-to-life group. The woman was shot after she suffered harassment while passing out pamphlets.
According to reports, two volunteers for the re-election campaign of Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott were allegedly beaten during door-to-door canvassing in a Houston suburb over the weekend. A suspect pursued the two volunteers through a neighborhood in Humble, Texas, and attempted to drag them out of their car while ripping out the vehicle’s side-view mirrors.
Reports show that the Ottawa County Republican Party in Hudsonville, Michigan, and the Larimer County Republican Party in Fort Collins, Colorado, reported vandalism on their headquarters this month. Days after Biden referred to MAGA Republicans as semi-fascists, a GOP office in Seminole County, Florida, was destroyed. A few weeks later, the word Nazi was spray-painted on the walls of another office in Seminole County. A pregnancy clinic in Oakland County, Michigan, was also damaged.
Cayler Ellingson, 18, was murdered earlier this month when a 41-year-old man was accused of running him over with his car. The man reportedly told a 911 operator that he thought Ellingson was a member of a Republican extremist organization that was pursuing him. Reports show that Ellingson was not in any such group.
According to White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates, President Biden denounced these assaults.
But Biden’s dogs heard his whistle, nonetheless.
