Swalwell Tells a Dubious Story, Then Says 'Bloodshed Is Coming'

I reported earlier about how Joe Biden has been demonizing half of America and is going to give a speech continuing to attack MAGA people on Thursday. After Biden called millions of Americans “semi-fascist,” a GOP office was vandalized with the words “Eat sh**” and “Fascists” in Seminole County, Florida.


In Pennsylvania, Biden continued the attack, falsely claiming that Republicans were calling for political violence. He said that senior senators and members of Congress were saying there would be “blood in the street.”

But the only person talking about “blood” was Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) who said, “Bloodshed is coming.”

“A staffer of mine—who’s 1 month into her job—received a call from a man saying he’s coming to our office w/ an assault rifle to kill me,” Swalwell claimed. “I hesitate to share this but how else do I tell you we are in violent times, & the architects are Trump & McCarthy. Bloodshed is coming.”

Swalwell followed that up by saying the man was gay, although I don’t know what the heck that would have to do with anything.


Warning for graphic language:

While this could be true, given it’s from Swalwell, it’s fair to question it — he’s not a trustworthy source. Not to mention that no one on the right refers to a rifle as an “assault rifle.” That’s an almost exclusively left-wing/media term. So I tend to doubt this threat.

But what does he do? Not call for calm, but he blames “Trump & McCarthy” — inciting people against them — and then says “Bloodshed is coming.” There, of course, is no evidence at all that either President Donald Trump or House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had anything to do with this alleged threat. Heck, there isn’t even any evidence the threat is real.

Had this been said by a Republican, it would be getting 24/7 coverage and he would be accused of making a threat by saying that bloodshed was coming. Now, I don’t know that that’s a threat, but I do know that he’s falsely inciting against Trump and McCarthy.


Democrats need to stop this now. I keep saying this, and I know they won’t. But they’re going to go in on all this and it’s going to get worse. We’ve seen them do this before with Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and how they attacked Republicans over healthcare. It was the healthcare lies that the Bernie bro was shouting about as he fired on the GOP at the baseball practice, injuring several people and almost killing Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA). They keep doing it because they’ve never had any consequences for what they’ve done in the past. Will Democrats disavow such inciting? Of course not, it’s built into their approach.
