Oath Keepers - Republicans Unclear on Concept of 'Protester' Threat

by David Codrea

Guess who the fascists, national socialists and other not-so-innocent garbage are referring to when they project their descriptions onto conservatives? Guess who they want to physically pummel into submission or worse?
"Republicans, Staff Fear Violence against Them as Opposition to Obamacare Repeal Intensifies," The Washington Free Beacon reports. "House Republicans and their staff face may face violence as the protests against the Affordable Care Act repeal intensify."
"[Former County Sheriff David] Reichert suggested having an exit strategy at town halls, maintaining a police presence at the town halls, and replacing glass doors with a heavier alternative," the story explains.  So far so good. He understands there's a physical threat, not just to property, but to life. The next bit of advice invites challenge:
He also told them to be friendly and nice to protesters because of their First Amendment right to protest what they don't agree with ... During the meeting the Republicans went over strategies of engagement towards Democratic activists to make sure that they feel like their opinions and concerns were being heard by the other party. It was said that interactions should be conducted in a "'congenial' manner."
I posted my reaction to it on The War on Guns blog:


Everyone is clear on who they're calling "fascist" and on who they want dead?
There's no reasoning with domestic enemies who rely on violence, there is only avoiding them, repelling them or stopping them. Assuming Republicans are unwilling to halt political activities in the face of threats, that means they must make sure they are conducted under appropriate physical security. It also means individuals must either be protected from attacks or be prepared to protect themselves
