As the mainstream media prods us to war with one another, the radical left are responding to democratic dog whistles with alarming regularity.
The American people, at times, seem to be on the very precipice of Civil War. While a great deal of this fretting comes to us courtesy of the mainstream media, there is still something to be said for the causation versus correlation part of the argument.
Is the media the chicken or the egg? God forbid it ever arrives, which would the coming conflict be?
In this atmosphere of anti-eachother hatred, it’s no surprise that republicans are being targeted in droves by the radical left; the infotainment industry is doing little but stoking these fires.
In Tennessee, such vitriol has manifested itself with a suspicious package and a bomb threat.
Businesses in downtown Murfreesboro, 35 miles southeast of Nashville, were cleared out while police K9 dogs were brought into the Rutherford County Republican Party office, the Murfreesboro Police Department tweeted. Inside the cardboard box appeared to be a radio with a note attached.
The tone of the note was unmistakable in its message.
“This is just a warning. There will be no others,” the note read. “There will be no unconstitutional gun control in this state, or there will be blood.”
Michael Sullivan, executive director of the Tennessee Republican Party, said it was unclear if the box was mailed or dropped off. He called it a fake bomb.
Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden called the incident “alarming.”
Thankfully, no one was harmed in the incident.
