The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks.
The suspension came days after Minnesota state representative Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm after spotting a man destroying Republican yard signs. She said the attack left her scared, and her attacker only desisted when she fled to her car and threw it in reverse. "It was just insane. He was charging at me, saying, ‘Why don't you go kill yourself?'" Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon. "To have someone physically coming after you and attacking you is just disheartening." The Plymouth Police Department investigation into Rep. Anderson's alleged assault remains ongoing. A spokeswoman confirmed the department had identified a suspect, but declined further comment.
Anderson was not the only GOP candidate attacked. First-time state representative candidate Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after getting sucker punched while speaking with constituents at a restaurant in Benton County. Mekeland told the Free Beacon he has suffered memory loss—forgetting Rep. Anderson's name at one point in the interview—and doctors tell him he will have a four-to-six week recovery time ahead of him. He said he was cold cocked while sitting at a high top table at a local eatery and hit his head on the floor. "I was so overtaken by surprise and shock and if this is the new norm, this is not what I signed up for," he said. Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck told the Free Beacon that his department has interviewed the alleged assailant. Investigators are awaiting medical records about the extent of Mekeland's injuries before referring the case to the local district attorney's office. He expects those results to come in the next week.
Shockingly, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, has come out in favor of political violence. Yesterday he tweeted an endorsement of the fascist Antifa group, which has rioted in cities across the country. Antifa members wear masks and wield baseball bats and ax handles, attacking innocent bystanders, smashing store windows, burning vehicles, and otherwise engaging in political violence.

Hillary's bodyguard, that big black guy who comforted and carried her during the 2016 campaign, mysteriously died recently.
Rumor says he tried Hillary's reptile injections.
DNA was a no-match.
