Bolling: Violent Threats Directed Toward People Because of Their Political Views

A candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri releases a campaign ad toting a shotgun and storming a house [1] with a group of armed men in search of RINOS (Republicans In Name Only).

In Illinois, Rep. Adam Kinzinger receives a letter at his home threatening to kill him, his wife and his family because of his work on the January 6 commission.

In Washington, D.C, leftist protestors set up shop outside the home of a Supreme Court Justice, threatening his family and disrupting his neighborhood.

These are but a few of the latest examples of violent suggestions or threats directed toward people because of the political views they hold.

Folks, I really hope this is not who we have become. We live in a very diverse country, where lots of different people hold lots of different views on lots of different things.

More than 230 years ago, James Madison told us that the essence of liberty was the understanding that everyone is entitled to their views on the important issues of the day, and all views should at least be respected and considered.

If we somehow believe that violence or threats of violence against those who see the world differently than we see the world is acceptable, we have lost the soul of our nation.
