The Left Has Always Been Violent

History Lesson

Leftists have always been the party of temper tantrums and violence. Today our country is more vocally divided than it has been in over a hundred years. The left seems intent on bringing about some sort of "revolution" of violence and fascism. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for the Left.

In the history of the United States, there have been four sitting presidents assassinated. Three were killed by straight out leftists while the fourth was done in by a Republican. Specifically: John Wilkes Booth who was a supporter of slavery, a hater of the abolitionist movement and attended the hanging of abolitionist John Brown, shot President Lincoln. Leon Czolgosz who was a radical socialist, shot President McKinley in the abdomen causing the victim to die days later from infection. Lee Harvey Oswald who was a Communist sympathizer and visited the USSR, shot President John Kennedy. Charles Julius Guiteau who was literally insane and a republican, shot President Garfield.

Others infamously killed by a frenzied person in a time of civil turmoil: Dr. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy who were both shot and killed by men from the Left. All these are politically motivated, and the murderers were a person crazed with rage.

In Times of Trouble

From the beginning of the U.S., there have been many moments of unrest for varying reasons. Generally speaking, it frequently seems to be pushed or instigated by leftists. One example is the 1866 New Orleans massacre of 44 recently freed blacks by a democrat and confederate sympathizing mob. A second example is the riots in the 1960s. Both examples show leftists seem to have a penchant for beating and killing people who disagree instead of debating and engaging peaceably.

Arguably, in today’s tumultuous political world, the prominent violent group movement is Antifa. Its members have been arrested for allegedly beating their opponents with clubs, bike locks and whatever instruments they can find. It appears to be a hallmark of their “debating”.

Targeting the police is another apparent trait. Many police murders and attacks have been connected to people who follow and believe in the far left ideology.

The underlying ugly truth of intolerance within the Democrat organization and the left, has been unmasked, especially in the media. They no longer bother to pretend to be about free expression and the debate of ideas. Many are violent fascists. They do not want to engage peaceably. They have no interest in listening to different thoughts and ideas. Simply, their control driven, socialistic intent is to divide this country, not unite it.


The left has always had these non-tolerant leanings. Its hate-filled perpetrators were once hidden under white sheets known as the KKK. The Democrat party strongarm unit, the KKK, was silenced once, thankfully. They are attempting to rise again in new forms. The difference today is the color of the uniform. They are once again not hiding their encouragement of and engagement in violence -- just their faces.

Conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans, Independents need to wake up and take these movements seriously. Our country is at stake.

  1. It's almost like they're TRYING to look like lunatics. Violence and divisiveness is NEVER the answer.
