Rep. Eric Swalwell, Jennifer Rubin Mock Sen. Susan Collins Over Threats

Rep. Eric Swalwell, Jennifer Rubin Mock Sen. Susan Collins Over Threats

How about we not threaten anyone? Just a thought…

Humanity 101: Do not threaten people, including those who accuse someone of sexual assault or may not vote the way you want them to.

The Hill published an article yesterday about how Sen. Susan Collins and her office have received threats over Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“Conservative” blogger Jennifer Rubin and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) decided it’s not a big deal and actually went on social media to MOCK Collins and her office.

Boohoo? Constant act as a victim? Excuse me? So it’s totally okay for these people to threaten Collins and her office? That’s how I interpreted those tweets.

From The Hill:

“My office has received some pretty ugly voicemails, threats, terrible things said to my staff,” Collins said in an interview with WVOM on Wednesday.

“This has been a very ugly process and I think that’s very unfortunate for everyone involved,” Collins added.

I blogged on September 12th about how leftist activists threatened Collins and her office while others have raised money to defeat her if she doesn’t vote against Kavanaugh. One person told a female staffer he wants her raped and impregnated. The office has received 3,000 coat hangers.

Swalwell decided to engage in a conversation with Jake Tapper after he called out the congressman. It didn’t end well for him.

Yes! I guess Swalwell and Rubin did not read the article because it noted how Collins made that same suggestion in her interview (emphasis mine):

Collins said in the interview that Kavanaugh “has received some threats and goodness knows” as the battle over his nomination kicks into high gear. But she also weighed in on reports stating that Ford had been forced out of her home due to death threats after her newly disclosed allegations against the Supreme Court nominee were made public.

The GOP senator said in the interview that she believes Ford should be provided with any protection that she may request “for herself and for her family,” but also urged Ford to speak with the Senate about her newly-disclosed allegations against Kavanaugh, saying that “it would be better for her.”

Ten minutes after the conversation, Swalwell apologized.

Unfortunately, nothing from Rubin.

Comments

Conservative pundits and myself called this days ago.

Ford was going to claim she received ‘death threats’ and didn’t feel ‘safe’ speaking at the hearing.

And we’re never going to see them, and they’re never going to be reported to the police or the FBI. Because they’re fucking fake.

    Stand by for the next probable step – Ford checks herself into a psychiatric ward because of the ‘stress and anxiety’ of this and Democrats demand that no vote be held until she is ‘ready’.

      Chris Matthews already spilled the beans: she will do “an explosive interview” right before the midterm election.

      GOP I hope you’re listening.

    Please…!!!

    That’s one of the prime uses of Twitter. Threats are made every day to every conservative you could name. They are made to people like Ford commonly. People are nuts, and Twatter gives them a magnifier. The very worst of our body politic are free to come out of the woodwork and say the most outrageous crap they can contrive.

      Not only are threats made but Republican politicians and candidates have actually been physically attacked by crazed leftists and in several instances Republican offices have been vandalized or even burned.

      Threats of violence from the left should be taken very seriously.

        The left and their propensity for violence; and they think we’re ever going to let them do anything to weaken the 2nd Amendment. Not happening…

    I will wait until tomorrow, probably around noon (so the Repubs will have time to accept that Grassley had a deadline and it was not met) before I say she definitely is a no show. And that doesn’t take into account the ability for some spineless critters to lobby “Won’t we give her one more chance?” on Sunday’s talk shows and into Monday morning until 10 AM.

That tweet is deleted and I’m sorry for that.

Yeah, he’s sorry he had to delete that tweet.

    C’mon now, a liberal admitted to making a mistake in a politically-correct pronouncement. Give him some credit! If more of them would do the same, we might have some civility in the political discourse here. (Or, better still, not make such pronouncement in the first place. But I’m asking too much.)

The problem with Twitter and other similar avenues of commenting, is that it’s often anonymous and it isn’t done face-to-face with the other person being discussed. People are generally more civil when they’re not anonymous and more civil when they have to speak face-to-face with the object of their comments.

The internet is a perfect media for growing hostile mold.

“Why not offer the witness some security?” Witness to what, exactly?

    Witness in the sense of “a person who is testifying before a body or a Court.”

    Even if she shows up and talks about fluffy bunnies for 2 hours before the Committee cuts her off for being irrelevant, she will still have been a “witness.”

Jennifer Rbin is certainly entitled to her opinions (as wrong a they may be), but I would be grateful if she advertised herself as a RINO rather than a conservative.

Jennifer Rubin is a Democrat. She just calls herself a Republican because the other side is already full of pundits, and this way draws an easier paycheck.

Despicable people.

But it’s refreshing to see that, once again, Corruption self-inflict wounds as these hacks trample all over their own narrative. Own goal

Know what’s wearing thin? Jennifer Rubin acting like she’s anything other than a democrat.

And why should the taxpayer pick up the security tab for the democrat’s last minute smear-campaign prop. They’re the ones who put her in this position, let them dig into their pockets to provide her security.
