Trump's Deadly Message to America
Trump's cultists have nothing to say about their idol inciting murder. And why would they? One far right blogger allowed a commenter to incite murder against a sitting president, President Obama.
They and Trump are one and the same: Unhinged, anti-American, and irredeemable.
From Daily Kos:
The FBI announced they’ve arrested a 68-year-old California man for threatening to kill employees at The Boston Globe.
Robert Chain placed numerous threatening calls to the newspaper. Here’s a transcript of one call, via Tom Winter at NBC News:
"You’re the enemy of the people, and we’re going to kill every fucking one of you. Hey, why don’t you call the F, why don’t you call Mueller, maybe he can help you out buddy. Still there faggot? Alright, why, are you going to trace my call? What are you going to do motherfucker? You ain’t gonna do shit. I’m going to shoot you in the fucking head later today, at 4 o’clock. Goodbye. “You’re the enemy of the people.”
Now, where did he hear that from? Donald Trump shamefully spews that line at rallies and on Twitter, even sending it the very same day the FBI announced this arrest.
Here is the POTUS, using language to incite weak-minded people to murder. What other message is he sending when he calls the free press "Enemy of the People?" Just like tyrants and murderers did in totalitarian governments around the world, Trump is doing what they've done when the press or the media report what he says and does. And that is what his idol, V. Putin, has done to journalists in his country.
