What’s really behind the rise in political violence

By Ben Shapiro

September 13, 2018 | 8:05pm

This is far from the only case of political violence we’ve seen in recent years.

The most famous was, of course, the congressional baseball shooting by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was nearly murdered during the carnage. Now Scalise says: “You’ve got some people on the left that just want this idea of resist … You’ve gotten to where there are death threats and literal attacks on lives … and frankly, what I want to see is the left stand up against this.”

Meanwhile, the right has seen its own violent crazies.

Last month, Robert Chain, 68, of California was arrested after allegedly calling The Boston Globe newsroom and threatening to shoot employees. During that call, he called the newspaper the “enemy of the people,” echoing the language used by President Trump.

So, is the left responsible for Fazeli? Is President Trump responsible for Chain?

The only solution: We must realize that the president is merely a constitutional officer bound by the checks and balances of his role. And we must stop attributing to politics control over our lives that politics does not truly exert.
Cui bono?

Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.
