The Democrat Party is out of control.
The unthinkable almost happened.
And this top Republican’s frightening prediction came true and what happened next will make you sick.
Critics alleged New York Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul incited violence against her opponent Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin by emailing out a schedule of appearances by Zeldin and telling her supporters to go and protest Zeldin’s right-wing extremism and disinformation.
During a campaign stop in Perinton, New York, Zeldin delivered remarks about Hochul and the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies such as no-cash bail.
During the speech 43-year-old David Jakubonis jumped on stage and attempted to assassinate Zeldin by stabbing him in the neck.
Fortunately Zeldin was able to fight Jakubonis off and police arrested the would-be assassin.

AMVETS National Director Joe Chenelly described to Fox News how he tackled Jakubonis after Zeldin warded off the initial attack.
“His right hand came up, I assume out of his pocket, and he had a blade on his hand,” Chenelly stated. “His fingers were like two finger holes in the blade and lunged at the congressman. And Congressman Zeldin blocked the first lunge. And then as he tried to lunge again, I grabbed him from behind and tackled him down to the ground and held him on the ground.”
Zeldin then thanked everyone for their support and gave his version of events.
“Thank you to everyone who reached out following tonight’s attack in Fairport. Someone tried to stab me on stage during this evening’s rally, but fortunately, I was able to grab his wrist and stop him for a few moments until others tackled him. I’m ok, and @EspositoforNY, and all other attendees are safe. The attacker is in custody. Grateful for the attendees who stepped up quickly to assist and the law enforcement officers who quickly responded. I’m as resolute as ever to do my part to make NY safe again,” Zeldin wrote on social media.
Zeldin then tweeted out that because of New York State’s criminal-coddling bail laws Jakubonis would be out in the streets within hours.
His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were “you’re done”, but several attendees, including @EspositoforNY, quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy.
Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes.

Zeldin proved correct as Jakubonis was let out of jail after being charged with attempted assault in the second degree.
There are Trump supporters who did not carry weapons and did not commit any acts of violence who rotted away for 18 months in Joe Biden’s internment camp in Washington, D.C. after being arrested for walking around the Capitol on January 6.
A deranged lunatic attempted to assassinate a Republican candidate for office and Democrats cannot wait to let a potential killer back on the streets.
No one believes if a madman who happened to be a registered Republican attempted to stab Governor Kathy Hochul they would be set free within hours.
There is now a two-tiered system of justice in America where Democrats are given free run to do as they please and the system becomes weaponized as a tool to punish conservatives for holding the wrong political views.
