Dem Socialist Challenger to Susan Collins Puts Out Campaign Shirts...With a Guillotine on Them

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) often refers to “our revolution.” Media tends to interpret that as simply a term for his movement. But others who have been following and paying attention to the more radical left know that’s a term that’s meant seriously.

Bre Kidman is a self-described Democratic socialist who is running for the Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). Kidman is running to become the “first non-binary” Senator and goes by the pronoun “they.”

Here’s a look at the troubling campaign message on the shirts that she’s putting out.

Yes, in case you missed that, that’s a guillotine.

So she was asked who is the guillotine meant for?

That was not reassuring and it got worse.

Oh, good to know. It’s maybe not a threat tomorrow but Friday, when you think that we haven’t sufficiently complied with your demands.

Meanwhile let’s read that in the context of current events: Susan Collins has been getting death threats again since her vote to acquit President Donald Trump, just as she got death threats after voting in favor of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Collins noted that she’s gotten three death threats that were deemed “credible” and are currently being investigated.

Also, Republicans were registering voters at a tent in Florida when a van ran through the tent, a man got out and gave them the finger. It was lucky that no one was injured in the attack on the tent.

A man was also arrested with a knife near the White House after saying he intended to assassinate the president.

But this is the troubling atmosphere that leftists in general have been stoking for the past fews years. Perhaps it was at its worst during the healthcare debate when multiple GOP officials and lawmakers were attacked in multiple incidents, and the GOP Congressional baseball practice was shot up by a Bernie bro who shouted, “This is for healthcare!”

Democratic officials need to condemn such things loudly. But unfortunately, we’re not hearing that. What we have been hearing is every effort to jack up the extreme language and the demonizing of Republicans.
