Voting against the Republican tax reform bill will not be enough to spare those GOP representatives from reprisal, implies a disturbing tweet from the official account of New Jersey Governor-Elect (and former Obama Administration Ambassador) Phil Murphy.
We won’t give a pass to the Republicans who voted “no” but didn’t speak out forcefully or lobby their colleagues. It is New Jersey, and states like us, who are paying for this plan out of our pockets. We won’t have short memories – 2018 is just around the corner. https://t.co/IDvIB0tvhv

The social media tweet promises that Republicans won’t get “a pass” in 2018’s midterm elections. However, in an era of impassioned and sometimes coded rhetoric, particularly on social media, such messages raise the question of whether certain groups (perhaps even Antifa) are indirectly being “activated” to go after political opponents.
In this case, those targets would appear to be all Republicans, even if they joined prevailing Democratic Party orthodoxy in opposition to the recently-passed bill.
Murphy takes office January 16, 2018. He joins a growing list of big blue state Governors and Senators using social media to distribute increasingly-partisan and even incendiary rhetoric to compete for support among the farther-left part of the political spectrum.
