Activists searching for COVID stimulus pile physique luggage outdoors Republican lawmakers' properties

An activist group calling for a COVID relief package piled body bags outside the homes of several Republican lawmakers Tuesday morning.

The group – known as SPACEs In Action – left the body bags in front of the homes of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), James Inhofe (R-OK) and Lindsey Graham (R -SC).

A number of bags were marked with "Trump COVID Death".

The group accused McConnell of "having blood … on his hands" by "blocking a vote on COVID relief" and bragging about their stunt on social media for "bringing the bodies to his front door" would have.

The targeted harassment of the private houses of the legislature indicates that there will be no unified push of the right-wing extremist democratic base after the elections.

Over 270,000 dead, more losing jobs, homes and small businesses, and they're still playing politics.

In relation to the stunt, a few questions arise:

Were these actual body bags or more Democratic voters left over from election season? (Was just a joke)
Where's the anger at people like House Spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi, who even cited members of her own party as an obstacle to getting COVID relief passed ahead of the elections?

"I am convinced that I will actually do my goddamn job and find a solution for the American people," said MP Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) in a conference call for the Democrats in mid-September.

"We have to get something down on the ground."

You never did.

A spokesman for Inhofe referred to this fact in response to the body bag stunt.

"May I suggest that you try to share your concerns with either Speaker Pelosi or Senator Schumer?" they advised. "They are the ones who hold back the relief – not Sen. Inhofe."

Mitch McConnell and the GOP Senate Block COVID Aid.

Let thousands die and millions suffer.

Today the incredible activists from @ShutDown_DC and @SPACEsInAction got the message on their doors.

The violent harassment and imagery continues

Tuesday's creepy prank is just another example of leftist activists willing to molest Republicans either in public or outside their own homes.

And has been for years.

In 2018, a group of Antifa thugs swarmed Fox News host Tucker Carlson's home while his wife was inside.

"Every night you remind us that we are not safe," wrote the Smash Racism DC group on social media. "Tonight we remind you that you are not sure either."

BREAKING:

A mob has gathered in front of Tucker Carlson's house demanding that his family leave DC because he is a "racist bastard".

"You spread fear in homes every night – we remind you that you are not safe either."

Tucker has 4 children.

It was the same mob that evicted Senator Ted Cruz and his wife from a DC restaurant.

McConnell himself was harassed along with his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

More recently, violent demonstrators have shown their willingness to harass, address and attack anyone of any political affiliation.

Portland Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler visited protesters in his city over the summer and was instantly cursed, urged to resign, pelted with water bottles and gassed in tears by federal agents.

Paul Gallant, a talk show host for 710 ESPN in Seattle, mocked President Trump for claiming the rioters in his city were violent.

A little over a month later, the same “protesters” set fire to his home, leaving Gallant to buy a gun for protection.

In Minneapolis in August, a Democratic candidate for state office threatened to burn down a suburb.

"I didn't come here to be peaceful," said John Thompson, protesting in the suburb of Hugo.

"This whole damn state burned down for $ 20, do you think we give a shit about burning Hugo?" he said. "Blue lives don't mean nothing to black people. F *** Hugo, Minnesota!"

John Thompson, who recently won his 67A elementary school in St. Paul, goes out yelling at the kids, residents and neighbors of Police Union Leader Bob Kroll.

"F * CK, Hugo Minnesota!"

On the same day that leftists were planting body bags in front of his house, Republican Mitch McConnell continued to work on a COVID relief package.

According to Fox News, McConnell is "focused on running a GOP COVID relief operation that will be legally signed by President Trump".
