Activists are targeting President Donald Trump, his family, his Cabinet picks, and key intellectual figures in the populist nationalist movement with violent harassment and “assassination”-related imagery.
President Trump has been targeted with more than 12,000 assassination-themed tweets and a cover story in the Irish magazine Village showing his head with a target and the caption “Why Not.” Madonna said at a D.C. protest that she thinks about blowing up the White House.
There is a despicable double standard in this country by which left-wingers can make appeals to violence all while the media narrative goes forth that the Right is somehow responsible for stoking violent sentiment. We live in a country where Ivanka Trump gets harassed on an airplane, Betsy DeVos gets physically blocked from a school visit by protesters, and the Berkeley police just stand down when riots target a nationalist writer.
The group “Assassinate Stephen K. Bannon?“ has 13 members but a consistent stream of content, including an image of President Trump with exposed brain matter and content opposing Trump’s travel ban on terrorist-rich countries. The group’s founder appears to be pseudonymous. A figure close to Bannon reported the group to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but it is unclear if the FBI will investigate.
Don’t expect action from Facebook, run by presidential aspirant Mark Zuckerberg. The company recently refused to take down a page called “Assassinate Donald Trump.”
The Left is targeting key leaders of the populist nationalist movement, which provided substantive policy ideas during the Trump campaign and continues to have prominence in the new administration.
Violence is clearly one tactic that the other side is using to try to shut down the kind of populist nationalist content that Bannon and his political disciples.
Milo, an anti-progressive writer who worked for Bannon, was blocked from speaking at the University of California, Berkeley. Radical groups, including By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), took credit for the demonstrations that resulted in violence.
Big League Politics published exclusive video of the terrorist group responsible for starting the Berkeley riots. Our story sparked a manhunt in the media for the terrorists involved.
I know that the Secret Service guys around Trump are dedicated to him, even wearing their ties below the belt in a show of solidarity with the man they protect. But we live in a dangerous world.
The protection of the president, his family, and his advisers must be a paramount concern of every American. The media and the Left should be ashamed of themselves.
Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump
Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.
Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.
A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.
The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.
“I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.”
The censure resolution accuses McConnell of having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.”
McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.
Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
