A shocking-30 GOP Congressmen have had their lives threatened or outright attacked since May. This fact’s leaving many people wondering: how much longer will the country tolerate the left wing’s violence? The wave of aggression and hostility at the hands of loony liberals is growing concerning as their behavior escalates. From their acts of stalking to shooting, it seems liberals cannot accept the notion of being a free-thinking American.

In just the first, few weeks of June, over a dozen, Republican Congressmen were the targets of a shooter during their baseball practice. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot in the hip and is reportedly still in the hospital. Another four people were wounded during the shooting—two of which were Capitol Hill officers who had been assigned to Scalise.

On June 22, Ohio Representative Steve Stivers received a phone call in which both his life and the lives of his family members were threatened. Fortunately, reports indicate the caller was arrested.

“We’re coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you,” the man reportedly said.

Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz also revealed he had been on the receiving end of a death threat on the same day. The caller screamed, “[W]e are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a rope around your neck and hang you from a lamppost.”

Back on May 8, 35-year-old Wendi Wright was arrested for stalking Representative David Kustoff (R-TN). This culminated in Wright attempting to run Kustoff off the road then screaming at him, striking the windows and trying to reach inside his car.

Following a series of threatening phone calls police deemed “credible and real,” Representative Tom Garrett obtained a heavier security detail. Sources say the callers threatened his entire family and outlined how they would kill everyone from Garrett’s wife and children to the family dog.

Arizona Rep. Martha McSally also received multiple threats before the FBI arrested the man behind them on May 12. On May 21, Florida Rep. Tom Yoho revealed that in addition to protesters destroying his office, one person left him a threatening, voice mail.

Now, we all know if conservatives behaved this way, it would be all over the news. Sadly, these threats are really just the result of childish people not getting their way. Liberals may preach “tolerance,” but their version of it entails only tolerating people who are just like them. Are any GOP congressmen safe?
