A CNN reporter tweeted a picture of President Donald J. Trump this afternoon that has violent undertones.
“Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty,” wrote known Trump-hater Chris Cillizza in a now-deleted tweet.
The tweet appears to be poking fun at Trump for believing in a higher power, which fits the radical left’s anti-God agenda.
But more noticeably, the gif image appears to show Trump in the center of crosshairs, which Twitter users immediately pointed out.
Is Cillizza simply tone-deaf, or was he making a subtle call for violence against Trump? Neither is surprising from a CNN employee.
Threats of violence against the President and other Republican politicians are a daily occurrence from the radical left, especially online where many have threatened the lives of elected officials.
It appears he has deleted the tweet after leaving it up for hours, but of course we captured it for you:
Some of the left’s culture of violence has materialized.
In October, James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders supporter from Illinois opened fire on Republican congressmen at an intramural baseball practice. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) nearly died from his wounds, and spent months in the hospital. Hodgkinson died after a shootout with police.
In November, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was attacked by his neighbor on his own lawn. Rene Boucher, another leftist, charged Paul and bulldozed him, breaking six of Paul’s ribs and causing a pleural effusion. Boucher pled guilty and prosecutors are seeking a 21 month sentence for his heinous act.
Antifa, the radical anarcho-communist group has been responsible for riots in hundreds of American cities, causing millions of dollars in property damage and occasionally violently injuring right-wing counter-protestors.
With the top talking heads in cable news implying violence towards the President, it is no wonder there is a culture of violence against Republicans in America.
