The Republican National Committee (RNC) published an ad on Thursday casting Democrats and the broader left as “an unhinged mob,” blending together comments of incitement from Democrats with video segments of violent leftist protesters.
Featured Democrats included Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Reps. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Maxine Waters (D-CA), former Attorney General Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton.
On Sunday, Holder advised Democrat rally-goers in Stockbridge, GA, to “kick” Republicans who “go low,” eliciting applause from his audience:
In a Tuesday broadcast interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Hillary Clinton advised Democrats against being civil in their political pursuits while Republicans hold majorities in both the Senate and House.
Various Republicans have accused Democrats of inciting politically motivated violence — deliberately or negligently — through rhetoric.
