DHS employees are being threatened and harassed, even to the point of putting a mutilated animal corpse on an official’s doorstep.
Harassing and threatening DHS employees is an aspect of harassing anyone who is identifiable in public as a member of Team Trump. A recent headline from Politico declared, “The left loses its cool.” It should have been expanded: The left loses its cool because they can’t handle LOSING!
Compare this behavior to what we saw from the Tea Party during the Obama years. The media wanted to portray the Tea Party movement as violent, hateful, and hysterical. Yet we never saw anything like what we’re seeing now from Progressives.
The department determined that there was a “heightened threat against DHS employees” in response to recent government actions surrounding immigration, according to a letter sent to employees […].
“This assessment is based on specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees,” Claire Grady, acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security, wrote to employees on Saturday.[….]
Around two dozen threat reports were issued in the past few days, primarily against Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, according to the same official. Each of these reports is generally related to a specific online threat. All employees are personally contacted by DHS security if they are the target of a violent threat, the official said.
In one example, a senior DHS official living in the Washington. D.C. area found a burnt and decapitated animal on his front porch, according to an official with knowledge of the incident.
Related to this escalation, in my opinion, is the open way that government employees publicly harass higher-ranking federal officials.
The Daily Caller reports, “Intern For Democrat Senator Yelled At President Across The Capitol Rotunda.”
The identity of a woman who yelled “F*** Trump” at President Donald Trump across the Capitol Rotunda was revealed on Monday as a Democratic Senate intern — and reports indicate that she will not lose her position as a result of her actions.
I say this is related because if people show transgressive boldness in public it makes sense that we would see much darker behavior on the part of others who keep their identity hidden.
