It comes as factions of the Democratic Party have proven unable to accept the fact their candidate for president, now twice-failed Hillary Clinton, lost a decisive election to the GOP candidate, Donald Trump, in 2016.
It means they are not able to continue pushing the nation in a far-left progressive direction, as they did over and over again under Barack Obama.
Even during the campaign, Trump supporters faced physical beatings. They continue to face violence at “resist” protests around the country even now, as those Democrats have moved over and over to deny Trump the rights of the office.

The shooting, which left the victims injured and the attacker dead, may be the worst such politically linked violence in recent weeks, but it’s far from the first.
