But don't call them violent thugs

Republican official 'would have shot' Guardian reporter attacked by Gianforte
A Montana Republican party official “would have shot” Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs if he had approached her as he did Greg Gianforte, who assaulted Jacobs one day before he was elected to Congress.

Jacobs approached Gianforte in May, in a room where he was about to give a television interview. The Republican slammed Jacobs to the floor, breaking his glasses, and then punched him several times.

Gianforte pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, apologized to Jacobs and donated $50,000 to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).

“If that kid had done to me what he did to Greg, I would have shot him,” Karen Marshall, vice-president of programs for Gallatin County Republican Women told the Voice of Montana radio program on Thursday.
Unfortunately in this day and age of political correctness, you can't call them the n-word without stepping on snowflake toes. And by n-word, I mean the german 3rd reich crowd, not the other one.

The Not-A-Violent-Thug steps down
The Republican party official who advocated shooting a Guardian reporter has resigned from her position.

Karen Marshall, who headed outreach for the Gallatin County Republican Women, stepped down from that post, according to a Facebook posting. In a radio interview last week, Marshall said she “would have shot” the Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, who was physically assaulted for asking Greg Gianforte about healthcare in May, as Gianforte ran for US Congress

So what's the point here?

That some thugs are Republicans?

No, that this is becoming the new face of the GOP. Liberals are the enemy. Journalists are the enemy. Therefore it's okay to harm them.

The NRCC picks a familiar Not-A-ThugTM face for a speaker.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has picked as the speaker for its next monthly communications workshop Greg Gianforte, the US congressman who violently attacked Guardian journalist Ben Jacobs and then tried to mislead the public and the police about it.

. . .
Now the NRCC, the arm of the Republican party whose mission is to get as many GOP members elected to Congress as possible, has decided that Gianforte is their choice to lead a communications workshop.

OK we get it.

Some Republicans are thugs.

And vice versa. :)

I get Mentats point. It's currently in fashion for Republican types to pretend that all thugs are democrats and all democrats are thugs. Thus a Republican thug is an impossibility and therefore must be a Democrat in disguise. Republicans, after all, are the epitomes of all that is good and right in the world and are incapable of error, much less thuggery

Nah, but by any objective standard most thugs are Democrats.

You don't see, for example, Republicans showing up at Democratic political events to attack the participants.
