It seems leftists today are employing increasingly more abusive and violent tactics to “protest” against conservatives and other Americans who don’t share their same view of the world, culture, and politics.
A GOP lawmaker from Nebraska recently tweeted a picture of a crude sign left on his front lawn by a protest group called Betsy Riot that was discovered by his 11-year-old daughter.
This is truly deplorable.
TheBlaze is reporting, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) tweeted a picture of a sign he said was left outside of his home that read “Traitors put party above country. Do the right thing for once, s**thead.”
Fortenberry wrote, “Be angry with me, direct your protest at me, but do not frighten my children in their home.”
This sign was placed on my lawn last night. Be angry with me, direct your protest at me, but do not frighten my children in their home. pic.twitter.com/pkbbZq3Ac2

According to the Omaha World-Herald, a protest group called The Betsy Riot placed the sign. And in a profanity-laced tweet, the group wrote that “Nebraska Betsies decided to help [Fortenberry] enhance his home’s curb appeal.”
The group also posted a picture of the sign in Fortenberry’s yard on their Facebook page with a similar message calling Fortenberry a “toadie” for the “fascist Trump Regime.”
On Twitter, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) offered his support to Fortenberry, writing, “I’m with Jeff. People who scream this stuff around kids are not serious about either country or basic neighborliness. We can do better.”
Leftists employ bully tactics to express themselves because, at the end of the day, when their ideology is examined in the light of logic and fact, it simply falls apart.
And they still haven’t figured out why they lost in November.
