Someone reportedly left a burnt and decapitated animal carcass on a top Homeland Security official’s front porch this week as leftist riots and harassment against Trump officials ramp up in the wake of a heated immigration debate, WTOP reports.
Because this is what political discourse has come to in 2018 America: leaving dead animals on someone’s porch because you don’t like their employer.
In the same report, WTOP added that about two dozen ICE agents have filed reports after receiving threats of violence online. That news comes after many on the left have called for border agents’ children to be harassed at school and federal immigration employees to be assaulted outside their homes and banned from public areas. Protesters have harassed Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant and outside her home, where they’ve shown up blasting recordings of crying children to protest her role in carrying out federal immigration law -- a method apparently backed by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, who's publicly urged her supporters to harass Trump administration officials whenever they go out in public.
When protesters in Portland camped out in front of an ICE agency building last week and heckled employees on their way to work, Portland Mayor refused to allow Portland police to intervene, saying he didn't want the Portland Police Department “to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track.”
If the left’s position on immigration held any merit, calls for violence would not only be inappropriate, but totally unnecessary. But when they run out of intellectual fuel, leave it to liberals to resort to actual fire.
