Given that none of us were alive during the lead up to the American Civil War, one can only wonder what similarities we see in today’s turbulent political climate.
I don’t wish to give the impression that we are headed for some sort of armed conflict with one another, but it would be foolish to believe that this is out of the realm of possibility. We have already witnessed egregious and unprecedented violence of a political nature, beginning with Kathy Griffin’s not-so-subtle call to arms, and the near immediate response by James T. Hodgkinson on a baseball field in Virginia.
Since that time, there has been little calm. The radical left seems to be relishing the opportunity to push the envelope, channeling all of their inner hippy heroes from the 1960’s, but then allowing the militant angst of Antifa to interject itself.
In Tennessee, things have gotten downright alarming in the run up to the 2018 midterms, and it has a great many voters seeing red.
Tennessee voters were outraged when they discovered a dummy wearing a GOP shirt, a dunce cap, and a sign with U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-TN) name crossed out hanging from a tree.
Bedford County GOP chairwoman Sandy Still shared photos of the anti-Republican Halloween display on Facebook Thursday, which showed the figure with a plastic pumpkin-shaped bucket head, connected to a sign listing “Marsha” three times with a black “X” crossing it out and a sign below it that read “Stop the Hate.”
The visually striking effigy can be seen below:
With the midterm elections arriving tomorrow, will this be the end of such vitriol and division, or merely the beginning of a long-term assault on American values?
