Democrats are trying to assume the moral high ground by calling out violence in the wake of Capitol protests, but footage shows Democrat leaders have made multiple calls for violence over the last four years.

Footage compiled on social media capture statements made by several prominent Democrats threatening violence as a result of Trump derangement syndrome.

Check out the videos below, captioned by Grabien editor Tom Elliott.

“In 2018, @tedlieu threatened ‘widespread civil unrest’ if Trump fired Mueller. This wasn’t a fluke, either. He repeatedly said people should ‘take to the streets’ if Trump did so (which as we know he didn’t).”

“James Clapper echoed Lieu — and many other Democrats — saying Trump firing Mueller would result in a ‘firestorm … in the streets’”

“Also in 2018, Sen. @CoryBooker told activists to ‘get up in the face of some congresspeople’”

“.@HillaryClinton specifically said ‘you can’t be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for’”

“.@EricHolder told liberal activists that Michelle Obama was wrong; ‘When they go low, we go high. No. No. When they go low, we kick them.’”

“In 2019, when Trump was considering declaring a ‘national emergency’ over the then-gov’t shutdown, Rep. @JoaquinCastrotx said if he did, Democrats would ‘fight him … in the streets’”

“.@RepMaxineWaters told activists that ‘God is in our side’ and urged her followers be increasingly confrontational members of the Trump Administration”

“In an interview w/ Joy Ann Reid, Rep. Waters then doubled down on her call to be ‘more confrontational’ w/ Republicans”

Earlier this year, @SpeakerPelosi said of getting active in politics, ‘When you’re in the arena, you have to be ready to take a punch and you have to be ready to throw a punch‘”

“.@SenatorTester said that in order to take on Trump, you have to ‘punch him in the face’”

If that’s not enough, check out this compilation with even more incendiary rhetoric from liberal Democrats in the media, Hollywood and in public office.

Maybe Democrats should look at their own statements before they try to lecture Americans on violence.
