If it seems as though the death threats against Republicans are on the rise, you're right. Arizona Rep David Schweikert confirmed that he received more threats in 2017 than all of his other years of service combined.

According to The Daily Caller:

Republican Arizona Rep. David Schweikert says he received more death threats in 2017 than every other year he’s been in office combined.

“My fear is this is the playbook of a lot of our brothers and sisters on the left — they’re going to get fringier and fringier, louder and louder, angrier and angrier, and as you and I know, we sometimes have some folks in our society who aren’t completely healthy,” Schweikert said while appearing on “Plaidcast,” a podcast hosted by Republican Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin.

“And we had more death threats last year, in my office, even one towards my little girl, than we’ve ever had in all the other years combined and my fear is that this rage that is being generated for political turnout is actually really becoming unhealthy for our political society,” Schweikert continued.

The Arizona congressman has served in Congress since 2011.

The lefts' dangerous tactics are escalating. It is concerning and stories like these highlight just how unhinged they are becoming.
