On Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) spoke with Fox & Friends and was asked if he thought the momentum Republicans gained during the Kavanaugh hearing’s would pull them through the midterms. Graham agreed that it would.
“This election now is down to simple things, are you for what they did to Kavanaugh? Are you for having your government run by a mob?” Graham continued, “What kind of country do you want and who do you want to run it? Do you want these people who spit at me and yelled at me being in charge - or do you want a more orderly process?”
Well, Monday during an interview with the anchors from Morning Joe, Sen. Kaine said liberals had to take advantage of the tremendous public outcry against the Trump administration. “What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box.”
Let me ask you a question… When you hear “fight in the streets” and “fight online”, what do you think of? Let’s see… “fight in the streets”? Does that make you think of liberal protests that sometimes lead to someone who doesn’t agree with them getting physically assaulted? What about “fighting online”? Does that make you think of conservative speech being censored on multiple social media platforms?
Now, none of us are in Sen. Kaine’s head (I’m assuming none of us are) to know exactly what he meant when he made this statement. What is apparent though, is that a lot of leftists have taken “fighting in the streets” and “fighting online” quite literally.
