In wake of Wednesday’s attack that targeted Republican lawmakers, Benghazi hero Mark Geist joined NRATV’s Stinchfield to discuss how the left’s heated rhetoric has inflamed negative political discourse and devolved into physical violence.
“I think that when you have an unstable person, the rhetoric that is being pushed, the wink and the nod that violence is okay, actually enables these folks and is even a ‘go’ sign to go and be violent,” host Grant Stinchfield said.
“That’s the one thing that all of us have to be careful of, the words that we use. Kathy Griffin holding up the head of a decapitated president, using that kind of rhetoric to inflame people,” Geist added in agreement. “It’s going to affect a certain number of people out there who are unstable already.”
The Marine Veteran also had some advice for anyone who may feel justified turning to violence due to differing philosophies.
“If you don’t like the political stance or the policy, contest it. Be out there, vehemently exercise your First Amendment right,” he said. “But, you have to respect the position of the president.”
