Dirty Politics

We all know that politics is a dirty business – not for the faint of heart nor the thin-skinned.  These past couple of years have proved that beyond a doubt.

We’ve all seen the national media’s uproar over the non-bombs that were sent to the Democrats and their minions, but almost nothing over the harrassment and assaults upon Republicans and their supporters.  If it weren’t for social media, we would get almost no news whatsoever.

Michigan is not exempt from the actions of the “Resistance.”  The following is an email from the Michigan GOP concerning the vandalism that occured on their headquarters in Michigan:

The Resistance Comes to Michigan

When Democrats go low, Republicans go to the polls.

Friday morning, we filed a vandalism report with Lansing Police after hundreds of dollars of damage was done to the MIGOP Party headquarters. This latest incident caps off a week of harassment by the Michigan Democrat Party (MDP) and their supporters against Michigan Republicans.

This week, MDP released an ad that displayed the social security numbers, in violation of the law, of Republican House candidate Christine Barnes and her ex-husband in an ad seen by at least 100,000 people, putting them both at risk for identity fraud.

On Wednesday, Mark Burton, a senior advisor for Gretchen Whitmer’s gubernatorial campaign, tweeted an anti-Semitic “joke” at Stu Sandler, a Jewish Republican consultant, as well John James, an African American U.S. Senate Candidate and Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette, implying that they were Nazis.

Congressman Tim Walberg’s campaign had numerous 4×4 yard signs stolen from homes across the 7thCongressional District.

To cap off the week, yesterday MIGOP employees arrived at headquarters to discover that our place of work had been vandalized with graffiti.

The ‘Blue Wave’ is rapidly evaporating and the resistance seems to be in full panic mode, resorting to mob tactics. They will leak a candidate’s social security number, call our candidates and consultants Nazis, and spray paint our headquarters in an attempt to intimidate our staff.

We will not be intimidated.  We will not back down.  We will continue to take our message of results not resistance to voters across Michigan.

When Democrats go low, Republicans go to the polls.

We know that our movement is one motivated by love of country.  We are motivated by results, not resistance and we need you now more than ever to get involved.

Yes, even in a Blue state like Michigan, the tactics of the mob are used to cow and intimidate voters.

There are many things I could comment on concerning the events over the past week, but I’m trying to keep the blood-pressure down.  Those of us who are concerned with the concept of fair play, honesty, and love of our country fully understand.  Those who are not are the problem.

Until next time.
