Someone’s going to resurrect the grisly facts on the Lindbergh kidnapping in order to suggest that because of Phillip Roth’s The Plot Against America, and Charles Lindbergh’s support for the anti-war America First Committee, somehow the famous aviator deserved that horrifying fate.

Because right now, the Trump family must feel just a little like the Lindbergh’s back in the 30’s and early 40’s.

Peter Fonda tweets that Barron Trump should be torn from his mother and locked in a cage with pedophiles. Then Pat Dussault, a Canadian writer who seems to work in Hollywood (he does comedy, what else?), makes a threat on Twitter against Donald Jr’s infant child, Chloe. James Woods bless him, steps right up and informs the Secret Service of the threat. Whether it was intended as a sick joke, Woods did the right thing. Of course, Dussault quickly retreated and made a mealy-mouthed apology. Apparently even Peter Fonda apologized.

In Washington, a frickin’ DOJ employee named Allison Hrabar was part of a group of Socialist protesters that loudly harassed Kirstjen Nielsen at a DC restaurant. Hrabar’s apparently a para-legal specialist who insists there’s some sort of invisible firewall between her work as a government employee and her rantings at a restaurant where another diner had tipped off the group that Nielsen had had the temerity to try and enjoy a quiet meal, like anyone else. Here’s what Hrabar said to the Washington Examiner:

If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace. We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do.

And then at 9 AM next morning Allison’s just another DC bureaucrat doing her job as a responsible professional – as Michael Hayden might remind us, his hands folded piously in front of his pursed lips.

Should we be surprised that there is an overwhelming bias against this administration among DC bureaucrats and Hollywood writers, actors, producers etc.? Yes, the separation of children from their parents was a blunder. And Trump even seems to enjoy some of these confrontations, if perhaps not the images of kids wailing in detention centers. But these threats have been lying there latent or explicit since he arrived at the White House. His mistaken policy was the perfect excuse to unleash them for people already consumed by hostility or even hate.

And over in Philadelphia, a lawmaker who happens to be gay got ugly and personal with Vice President Pence as well as Christianity and the Bible, in a profane tweet “welcoming” him to the city of brotherly love. State Representative Brian Sims – impeccably attired with a trim beard of course – flipped the bird and added a few choice words to one of the more courteous people in DC. Why? Because Pence is a practicing Christian.

Culture wars are out in the open and raging. The enforcers of progressive authoritarianism are exactly who you’d suspect. And someday soon, someone is going to go full metal jacket and I mean from the progressive side. In fact, someone already did, last year at a Congressional GOP baseball practice. Or have you forgotten already?
