assassinations have proven to be of great benefit to the party that
calls for them. In the American scenario not only do the Democrats have a
chance to replace any slain Republicans in special elections they also
delay any votes and derail the agenda of the opposition. Rand Paul was
already confirmed to be in the practice area when the attempted
assassination happened. If the Democrat assassin were successful the
Republican majority would have dropped to 51-49 making everything that
much harder to pass. Details are scarce about who else was there but if
by chance two more senators were then the Democrats would have made the
Republicans lose their majority pending special elections. Best of all
some statements of sympathy afterwards absolves you of all blame.
that Democrats have brought political assassinations into American
politics it is important for us to understand how they use dog whistles
to tell their followers that it is perfectly fine to kill Republicans.
