Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor said Thursday that his Richmond campaign office has been shot at and that he's received "threatening e-mails"....
Cantor said "a bullet was shot through the window" of his campaign office. The incident happened Monday, Fox News has learned, the latest in a rash of apparent threats and acts of intimidation against members of Congress.
Cantor is a Republican, the House Minority Whip.
Most political violence in the US has historically come from the left. E.g., the Black Panthers, SDS, and the Weather Underground.
Most people on the conservative side of the aisle just want to be left alone to go on with their lives and to keep the fruits of their labor. It's the leftists who want to seize property of the productive class in some misguided attempt at redistributive justice. You can only push people too far before they snap. If the progressives keep this up -- and I see no indication that they are backing off -- they will experience backlash greater than they can imagine.
