Not content with smearing the character of a good man for being a conservative judge, leading Democrats are now taking to calling for attacks on all Republicans.
First--the one most in the news--former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder said:

Beyond the obvious problem of advocating violence, keep in mind that Holder primary job right now is redistricting which he claims isn’t a partisan thing. As The Rational Republican Redistricting Trust points out:
These comments by NDRC Chairman Eric Holder are outrageous, irresponsible, and will only further incite violence at a time when politicians are under increasing threat. Remember this the next time Eric Holder says redistricting “isn’t a partisan thing.” https://t.co/tprdw5Mqk6— NRRT (@TheNRRT) October 10, 2018
However, Holder is not the only leading Democrat to call for violence against Republicans. Earlier this same week Hillary Clinton said:
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that civility in America can only begin again if Democrats win back the House or Senate this fall.
"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
As Senate Leader Mitch McConnell said:
Remember, these comments come less than a year and a half after Republican members of the House and the Senate were literally shot at by a politically crazed gunman. Our colleagues were nearly killed, just a few minutes from the Capitol.
“Just these past days, there have been graphic death threats. Senators and staff have needed extraordinary police protection. And Democrats are calling for more incivility and more rage? Look – there isn’t a firmer defender of the First Amendment than me. It is vital that citizens be heard. Americans with strong opinions on both sides of last week’s debate spoke up in a civil, respectful way, and our nation was better for it. But only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior. Only one side’s leaders are now openly calling for more. They haven’t seen enough. They want more. And I’m afraid this is only phase one of the meltdown. We’re already seeing desperate voices on the far left explain that, because they lost this fight, even more drastic steps are in order.
“There’s crazy talk about impeaching Justice Kavanaugh. There are left-wing writers demanding that Democrats pack the Court -- a zombie idea from the 1930s they’ve dug up just in time for Halloween. And how about this: One columnist for a national newspaper called the result a coup -- a coup -- and implied that the founders got it wrong and designed the Senate incorrectly. They want to rewrite the Constitution? The founding fathers got it wrong?
“Handling defeat badly is one thing. But regretting the Constitution itself because you don’t like how a vote turned out? That’s something else.
When leaders of a party act like this, they cannot disown what the mobs they inspire do. The Kavanaugh nomination was ugly but Democrats are looking to get uglier. And don't take a Republicans word for it, even Michelle Obama rejects it:
Mrs. Obama said she stands by her motto and thinks Holder’s alternative is not a proper message for children.
“Absolutely. Fear is not a proper motivator,” Obama said. “Hope wins out, and if you think about how you want your kids to be raised, how you want them to think about life and their opportunities, do you want them afraid of their neighbors? Do you want them angry? Do you want them vengeful?”
“Which motto do you want them to live by? And I have to think about that as a mother,” Obama concluded.
