A menacing mob of protesters has descended on the home of Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home. They are aiming to thwart any attempt to pick a new justice to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court following the death of associate justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
A mob of about 100 protesters moved in on the senator’s Louisville home on Saturday. Witnessess observed an unusual US Capitol Police presence which was dispatched to guard the Kentucky Republican in response to numerous violent threats.
One protester was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and improper parking, after police determined she used a pharmacy parking lot without planning to patronize the store, according to the Courier Journal of Louisville.
Twitter lit up with violent threats against McConnell Friday night after his office issued a statement announcing that President Donald Trump’s nominee to the position would receive a vote in the US Senate.
High profile left-wing activists like Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner immediately began ratcheting up the rhetoric. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave. This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them,” he tweeted.
Posters were left undisturbed by the Twitter patrol that obsessively censors conservatives for legitimate free speech and opinions.
Last August Twitter locked McConnell’s campaign account after it posted a video of protesters making threats against him at his home. The company told the campaign that the account will remain locked until the video of protesters is deleted.
“This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell. This is a problem with the speech police in America today,” McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said.
Mark Levin, host of Life, Liberty and Levin, author of Unfreedom of the Press appeared on Fox New Channel’s Fox and Friends Sunday and unleashed a blistering attack on the well compensated anarchists.
“Well it’s a very strange thing this, Democrat Party. First of all they hate the Constitution, because they spent the last several months pulling down statues of the founders and saying that the Constitution was adopted by slaveholders. And then they wave it around to justify their destruction of the Constitution,” Levin said.
“The Democrat Party is the party of Antifa, the party of Black Lives Matter. You have Nancy Pelosi calling federal law enforcement storm troopers. You had Jim Clyburn talking about federal law enforcement as Gestapo. They were silent for three months while lawless riots were taking place, now they’re encouraging them. You have Democrat spokesman for former Clinton and Obama officials saying out there, you do this, not only will this justice be illegitimate, but we’re going to take to the streets,” Levin ranted.
“So now, we have a mob, and the mob has a home, and it’s called the Democrat Party, and I’m going to tell you something. This mob, one way or another, will be crushed. If they’re not crushed at the voting booth, they will be crushed otherwise. Because what they have in sight is not even Donald Trump. It’s our Constitution. You heard [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. She is a reprobate. She is a radical. She is illiterate when it comes to the Constitution. and she is leading this party. She and the rest of them must be defeated,” he said.
The Moral Monday March is mobilizing protesters for a showdown at McConnell’s offices and home in Washington DC on Monday. “Caravans will drive around McConnell’s offices in Kentucky: London, Lexington, Fort Wright, Louisville, Bowling Green and Paducah and his home in Washington, D.C.,” the group announced Saturday.
