The Latest Bomb Scare

I concur with this:
First things first: Bombing people is bad. Sending bombs through the mail is bad. Sending ricin through the mail is bad. Mailing inert, harmless objects that are designed to look like bombs or ricin or something else that can kill people, to sow fear and confusion, is bad. I don't care what your motives are. I don't care how you rationalize it. I don't care how much you hate the policies and opinions of the people you're targeting. It's terrorism, and if you do it, you deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. You'll find people who are willing to defend you, while denying they're defending you -- "Hey, I'm not saying it's right, but wouldn't we all be better off with [fill in the blank] six feet under?" -- but I'm not one of them.
What's interesting, though, is that now that something is happening to lefties, the lefties howl.  Why weren't they howling before?  Because they like it when it happens to conservatives.
Just two weeks ago, the feds nabbed a guy who was planning to blow himself up on the National Mall on Election Day. And the story barely made a blip. Somebody sent ricin to John Kelly and Susan Collins, and nobody cares. A GOP candidate in Minnesota was sucker-punched in a restaurant after a political discussion. Nobody cares. Less than a month ago, a howling mob was literally pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court. The media's reaction: "Meh."
After some videos of leftie politicians' openly calling for violence, the article continues:
Does this mean Waters and Pelosi and Holder and the rest deserve to be targeted by terrorists? Absolutely not. It just means they should be careful what they wish for. A lot of Democrats have openly called for civil unrest. They've excused and condoned violence for political purposes. Well, this is what that looks like. If they advocate this sort of chaos and lunacy, they shouldn't act surprised when they become targets of it. Maybe it's too much to hope that they'll think twice before they say such things again.

"But that was different," mewl the libs. "Our team wasn't speaking literally. Haven't you ever heard of a metaphor, you rednecks?" Yeah, a metaphor is when a Democrat says something that you'd call treason if a Republican said it.
You reap what you sow.

Update, 10/26/18Caught him:
“[A] Filipino-American who pretended to be a Seminole, worked as a male stripper for a fake Chippendales company, used steroids, suffered from mental illness, hated his mother and terrorized the country by sending fake bombs through the mail. We’re living in Heinlein’s ‘Crazy Years’ . . .”
