Political violence is wrong no matter what party it comes from

Oct. 26, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the arrest of Cesar Sayoc:

“Political violence is wrong. If the courts find this lone actor to be guilty of these acts, he should be subjected to the full weight of the law. I agree with what Senator Bernie Sanders said when it was discovered that one of his supporters opened fire on the Republican Congressional baseball team in a mass assassination attempt, ‘Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society, and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through non-violent actions, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.’

“President Trump was also correct when he called for an end to rhetorical excesses by all political competitors. In the end, we are all Americans, and hopefully, we can now turn to issues that should be of concern to every American like border security and what to do about a caravan marching toward our country seeking to breach our national border.”
