January 1, Senator Sounds Alarm Over Escalating Political Violence



2006: WikiLeaks is launched, created by internet activist Julian Assange.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she “wouldn’t be surprised if a senator or House member were killed” amid the rising threats of political violence.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if a senator or House member were killed,” Collins told the New York Times in an interview. “What started with abusive phone calls is now translating into active threats of violence and real violence.”

A window of Collins’ home in Bangor, Maine, was recently smashed by an unknown visitor, the Times reported. But members of both parties have experienced a surge of threats and confrontation as of late.

“There’s been a sea change in that we now see this constant escalation and erosion of any boundaries of what is acceptable behavior, and it has crossed over into actual violence,” said Collins, a fifth-term Republican senator.

Collins has experienced verbal and written threats over the years. After announcing she would support Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in 2018, she received a message that included a video of a beheading.

“We will c-t off your l-mbs and sl-ce off yo-r faces. We will t-ar out your tongues and dism-mber your org-as and sl-t your thro-ts while you watch,” the letter read.

According to the Times, members of Congress have spent a combined total upwards of $6 million on security since the beginning of 2021. Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) has spent the most on his personal protection, $900,000. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) clocked in as the second-highest spender, with nearly $600,000.

    It’s funny that you sat back while BLM and ANTIFA , were burning cities, robbing, killing innocent people, tearing Monuments down, car jacking, destroying business’s, illegal immigrant invasions, high inflation, wasting monies going after Trump, Green New Deals, anything and everything, but when a “Window is broken at your home “WOW” I’m in danger? How about “Get a LIFE”, this is what you Politicians have “ENCOURAGED AND CREATED” for “WE THE PEOPLE”, this is what we have to live with, so I don’t have any “Sympathy or Empathy” for you!

    Obviously a scare tactic, it should not be publicized, just ignored

    Well, suzie, you can thank all your demorat friends, and I do mean friends considering your RINO history, for the violence that has been erupting since 2020. When the police aren’t allowed to do their jobs or when they do their jobs and criminals they just arrested are back on the street committing more crimes, their morale goes right down the toilet. Add onto to that the district attorneys around the country that george soros bankrolled and how they don’t even prosecute criminals and you’ve got a recipe for violence. So, as I said, thank all your demorat friends for supporting these corrupted practices.

    Like most liberals, she did not get concerned until it happened to her (if that really occurred?). Like most of this congress, can’t trust a thing they say.

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. With the actions and threats from Biden, Harris and the Democrat Party it was bound to turn out this way. I just hope and pray that no one gets killed. If anyone gets hurt, it is going to fall right into the lap of the Democrats and Biden. They want violence and they are getting it now.

    We all KNOW who the true terrorists are! Who burned, looted, assaulted, and killed every night for months? Who assaulted both the SCOTUS building and the White House? Who terrorized SCOTUS justices? Whose leaders want to “get up in their faces,” “bring a gun to a knife fight,” ad infinitum?
    If ANYTHING happens, it will be an Antifa or BLM THUG!

    Now that the government slugs are being challenged she’s whining. What about all of the regular citizens who’ve already been attacked and continue to be attacked around the country who don’t care about you political snobs but are dying or injured daily? They’re expendable??? The middle class made this country great by standing up for it and working hard but are dismissible ????

    people!!!!! WE MUST NOT FALL FOR THE GOADINGS. the Democratic Party is goading law abiding Americans. this is to further their agenda. bribem wants a civil war. that way he can declare martial law, suspend all elections, and keep us locked down. DONT GIVE IN TO IT. just a few more weeks until elections. show your animosity towards the democratic lunatics at the voting box. that is how we fight this mess. DO NOT GIVE IN TO ANGER., this is what they are so desperately pushing at this time. KEEP CALM. show your rage when you vote republican. we can end this downward spiral the correct way. we are sooooo much better than they.

    I have not heard Collin’s voice on violence against Catholic Churches. Seems like she only gets concerned when the violence is against her.

    It’s time for the government to fear the people instead of the people fearing the government. There should be a law that none of these elected officials should have any security unless they pay for it out of their pockets, and that doesn’t men they get paid more.
