British novelist and philosopher Aldous Huxley said – “The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.” It seems that is the current goal of the leftist progressive factions with cries of racism and “Nazi” is the dehumanization of those deemed their political and ideological foes.
It is a means to make harassment and violence against conservative, Christian, right-leaning, Republican, Trump supporting factions look “normal” along with inciting a mob-like mentality against any group which they perceive as having a different ideological thought process. Freethought will not be tolerated.
Currently, just 7 days into the month of July there have already been 13 instances of violence, harassment, refusal of service, etc against those publically showing support for Republican and Conservative ideologies, or even Libertarian ones, showing support for President Trump, the #WalkAway campaign, etc. Breitbart reports a running total of 190 acts of leftist and media-sanctioned violence and harassment against Trump supporters since January 5, 2016, just prior to President Trump’s inauguration.
And here we go again. Yet another emotionally unhinged radical leftist has heeded the call from the mainstream media and Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D) to attack Trump officials and supporters. This time it is a radical progressive Democrat, known as Martin Astrof. The 72-year-old was arrested by Suffolk County Police in Long Island, New York for making terroristic threats against GOP candidate Congressman Lee Zeldin, President Trump, and their supporters.
Following Maxine Water's urging, Martin Astrof threatened to kill supporters of New York Congressman Lee Zeldin and President Trump.

Astrof, police said, went to the campaign headquarters of Congressman Zeldin and became irate with a campaign worker at approximately 11:15 a.m. After threatening to kill the campaign worker and other supporters of the GOP representative, Astrof backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the worker. Astrof fled the scene and was arrested shortly after in front of his Nesconset home.
According to the Star-Telegram –
“Police say an angry Long Island man nearly backed over a campaign worker moments after saying he wanted to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, both Republicans.
Martin Astrof was charged Friday with making a terroristic threat and reckless endangerment. The 75-year-old was jailed pending a Saturday arraignment.
Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available. A message on his home phone wasn’t immediately returned.
Suffolk County police say Astrof confronted campaign worker Donato Panico at Zeldin’s campaign headquarters. They say he aggressively backed up his car and nearly struck Panico before speeding off.
Zeldin has represented parts of Long Island since 2015. He says he’s received threats since Trump’s election.
He tweeted on Saturday that Trump’s son, Donald Jr., had reached out to make sure Panico was OK.”
The New York Post reported of the incident –
“He was expected to be arraigned Saturday on a felony charge of making a terroristic threat, and on second-degree reckless endangerment charges.
Zeldin, a fervent Trump backer, decried the attack on Friday night.
“In the US, political scores are settled at the ballot box, not by trying to kill your political opponents,” he tweeted. “Donato Panico is a great American, a supporter of @realDonaldTrump & one of my campaign vols. He shouldn’t have been targeted like this today for his passion & involvement.”

Panico, a former deli owner from Smithtown, was Zeldin’s guest at Trump’s State of the Union address earlier this year, in recognition of his efforts to feed Ground Zero workers in the aftermath of 9/11.
In another tweet, Zeldin identified Astrof as “a NY-1 Dem.”
“Ppl shouldn’t fear death or serious injury for backing their Pres & Rep.,” he wrote.
I presented this flag 2 wks ago from Donato Panico, flown over WTC site & Iraq, to @RealDonaldTrump. A NY-1 Dem today tried to run Donato over w a vehicle & threatened to kill him for backing Pres Trump & I. Ppl shouldn't fear death or serious injury for backing their Pres & Rep. https://t.co/S9lbUlY8We

On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) said that he and his family had received threats from a person who said they would be “chopped up” in an ax attack. A suspect was later arrested.
Both incidents come at a time of heightened political tension since Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) goaded followers to “push back” on Trump administration members when they appear in public. “Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said on June 23.”
The man’s “irate” behavior was just the latest in a long line of attacks against Trump administration officials and his supporters. It seems generations of dumbing down, of being indoctrinated, of being told what to think, rather than taught how to think have taken its toll on the American populace. Many cannot convey a linear thought process coherently, let alone make logical conclusions. Rather than a discussion of different ideas, agreeing to disagree, people respond with emotional tirades and violence.
The current goal from certain factions appears to be the dehumanization of what they perceive to be their political…
Whether those ideologies are your own or not is irrelevant. Whether you support President Trump, or wherever you consider yourself in the political spectrum is also irrelevant. What is relevant is that this affects us all. Do not be foolish enough to think that your ideology is “safe” from attack, whatever it may be. You are only as safe to express your own ideological opinions as that of your opposition.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
