Democracy really does die in darkness. But, unlike removing the security clearances of top CNN talking heads, actual threats against working law enforcement personnel are of no interest to the media’s born again decency scolds and their police state correspondents.
Nothing to see here, folks.
A Democratic lawmaker issued a startling warning to government officials involved in “illegal” deportations that they “will not be safe” from future punishment when Donald Trump is no longer president.
“If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned,” Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego tweeted early Thursday. “When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President’s administration.”
Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council, which represents thousands of ICE employees, accused Gallego of inciting violence against them as they “enforce the nation’s laws and keep our communities safe.”
“It should be frightening to every American that a sitting member of Congress would threaten the safety of any person and their family, and incite the public to take acts of violence against them, let alone the lives of those whose job it is to protect us and keep us safe,” Crane said in a statement.
This isn’t really new.
Before the current wave of harassment of ICE personnel in defense of illegal alien migrants, the Dems and their leftist allies pulled some of the same stunts to protect Muslim terrorists. And Dem legislators were happy to threaten interrogators. Once Obama came to power, nothing much came of it. But it’s not without precedent. Dems have been known to direct threats against the military and law enforcement for doing their job and interfering with the political agendas and clients of the left. Democracy dying in darkness to the applause of the Washington Post.
