Roskam was in the spotlight last month when he wouldn’t say how he voted on a move to declaw the Office of Congressional Ethics. The changes were was scrapped after an outcry.)

— SCHLICHTER: THE LEFT HATES YOU. ACT ACCORDINGLY.  (DIERSEN: What do you say to those who claim to be Christian, conservative, and/or Republican, but who fail/refuse to stand up to the left?  Worse yet, what do you say to Democrat plants, to Libertarian plants, to Green plants, and to RINOs who work against those who are Christian, conservative, and/or Republican?)
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/02/schlichter-the-left-hates-you-act-accordingly-.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They hate you. Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do. You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn. Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social media. Find a leftist – it’s easy. Just say something positive about America or Jesus and they’ll come swarming like locusts. Engage them and very quickly they will drop their masks and tell you what they really think. I know. I keep a rapidly expanding file of Twitter leftist death wish screenshots. They will tell you that Christians are idiots and vets are scum. That normals are subhumans whose role is to labor as serfs to subsidize the progressive elite and its clients. That you should die to make way for the New Progressive Man/Woman/Other. Understand that when they call Donald Trump “illegitimate,” what they are really saying is that our desire to govern ourselves is illegitimate. Their beef isn’t with him – it’s with us, the normal people who dared rise up and demand their right to participate in the rule of this country and this culture.)
