Egged on by reckless rhetoric from mass media and democrat officials like Low IQ Maxine Waters, the last 2 years has seen a disturbing increase in violence from the left. There`s been people mailing suspicious powders to elected officials and their families, attacks from alt left terrorists like antifa, threats against elected officials and their families, and even the attempted murder of elected officials. Another anti Trumper was arrested last year charged with shooting his GOP committee man neighbor in the head and killing him, a man was arrested for threatening to kill the children of a Florida Republican rep, and not long after another one was arrested for making violent threats towards elected officials. There are plenty more stories and they keep coming.
Today`s story comes from California, where at the Castro Valley Fall Festival a man was arrested for trying to stab Republican Congressional Candidate Rudy Peters. According to witness reports posted by the SF Gate, witnesses said that 35 year old Farzad Fazeli aggressively approached Rudy at his booth and began yelling and screaming things about the GOP and yelling F*ck Trump. Fazeli then ran at him and tried to stab him with a switchblade while yelling “I`m going to kill you” but fortunately the switchblade wouldn`t open. Fazeli was arrested a short time later. Fazeli`s facebook page states that when it comes to politicians, the “street code is to self regulate since our government won’t govern and punish untouchables. In the street everyone is touchable if faulty (checks and balances)“. He also expresses support for the March For Our Lives protest as well as saying that he attended the march in Oakland. March For Our Lives is the protest organized in part by anti Trump / anti Republican activists David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez.
