A Republican House candidate in California was attacked over the weekend by a man upset with the president and politics, authorities said.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened at the Castro Valley Fall Festival Sunday afternoon and ended without serious injuries. The suspect, Farzad Vincent Fazeli, was arrested on charges of making criminal threats, exhibiting a deadly weapon and possessing a switchblade.
The alleged victim, Rudy Peters, who is running for the 15th Congressional District of California, told the San Francisco Chronicle a man walked up to his booth at the festival and made a series of “disparaging remarks” about Republicans and some of the party’s leadership, including President Donald Trump.
“All of a sudden we hear someone screaming, ‘(expletive) Trump, (expletive) Trump!’” Peters told the newspaper, adding the man also held up his middle finger.
James Hodgkinson a Sanders supporter who worked in Sanders campaign attempted to kill Scalise and identified where the Republicans were and attempted to shoot down the Republicans. He volunteered for Sanders campaign. The only reason why it wasn’t a mass murder because Scalise had security there, if not for him, there would have been no one with guns to fight back and would have been a killing field. Paul would have died, who also by they way, after this was attacked by a rabid Democrat who attacked him over his politics and had bones broken, and on the Hannity page last year, the political attack was downplayed by liberals.
Maxine Waters supports attacking, getting in the face of people in the Trump cabinet, and Keith Ellison supported Antifa
Amazing that this violence coming from the left is generally overlooked, briefly mentioned if at all, but somehow focus on Trump statements but leftists actually do the violence.
