No mention of these stories, of escalating leftist violence, on CNN and the like.

Man upset with Trump pulls switchblade on Republican House candidate, police say

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened at the Castro Valley Fall Festival Sunday afternoon and ended without serious injuries. The suspect, Farzad Vincent Fazeli, was arrested on charges of making criminal threats, exhibiting a deadly weapon and possessing a switchblade.

The alleged victim, Rudy Peters, who is running for the 15th Congressional District of California, told the San Francisco Chronicle a man walked up to his booth at the festival and made a series of "disparaging remarks" about Republicans and some of the party's leadership, including President Donald Trump.

"All of a sudden we hear someone screaming, '(expletive) Trump, (expletive) Trump!'" Peters told the newspaper, adding the man also held up his middle finger.

Peters, who said he was standing with Republican state Assembly candidate Joseph Grcar, told KPIX that Fazeli then picked up a coffee cup and threw it at them but missed.

Peters, a Navy veteran, said he then threw Fazeli to the ground, at which point Fazeli pulled a switchblade from his pocket and yelled, "I'll kill you!"

Peters told the Chronicle that he grabbed a sign from a nearby cupcake booth to use as a shield but Fazeli was luckily unable to open the blade.

Alameda County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Ray Kelly said "the knife malfunctioned" and "Fazeli fled the scene but was detained a short time later by deputies."


Democratic Socialist Threatens To Shoot Up MAGA Event At Trump Hotel, Report Says

A supporter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has reportedly threatened to shoot up a "Make America Great Again" event at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Law enforcement officials with the Metropolitan Police Department have opened up an investigation in response to the threat, which was posted to Twitter on Tuesday, The Daily Mail reports.

"I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies," the Twitter account wrote to right-wing pundit Cassandra Fairbanks.


These are both politically motivated, and as such terrorism. And if the perpetrators were on the right we'd hear about it from every network. Clearly lefts are covering for leftist violence, just like they do when they excuse Antifa/BLM violence.

Same shit. Attacks and threats are morally the same regardless if you're the media, a bookstore, a hispanic subway rider, or a politician.

No, politically motivated threats are terrorism. The RiteAid story was obviously a racial motive, where he harassed some Hispanics inside the store before ranting at the black woman. The black man in the MAGA hat made racially derogatory statements to a Hispanic...the same story also saying a Danish tourist got his MAGA hat robbed in the subway.

And CNN did cover Boston Globe threats: https://www.cnn.com/videos/cnnmoney/2018...le-vpx.cnn

No..like I said it's morally the same. A death threat or an attack are the same and just as evil regardless of who the victim is.

And? You're the only one who brought up morality.

When you were called on two of your links having already been covered by CNN and the rest not politically motivated, you had to introduce the red herring of morality. At best, it's a tu quoque fallacy that doesn't even address the central claim.

That's all this was about is morality. You tried to sidestep it by lying that when conservatives threaten and attack it is less wrong. I exposed that bullshit. Your side is just as guilty as anything liberal radicals do. That's the point. Also I posted 3 stories about Trumpers doing bad things that weren't reported by the mainstream media. You only posted two. I win.

Now, I'm done arguing against your petty-minded bitchy crap. My point stands.
