Recent developments have given the mainstream media more arsenal to fire at President Donald Trump. The case of two mad men, the one who mailed devices believed to be pipe bombs to selected Democratic party leaders and a media organization, and the other who went into a Synagogue and shot up the place killing eleven people and wounding others, has given the media a redoubled impetus to trot out their propaganda of how President Trump is the reason we have any and every type of violence in the United States.
In view of this on going campaign by the mainstream media to use these two latest events to brand President Trump and the Republican party as the only reason for violence in the country, I want to point out a few times when Democratic leaders have explicitly called for violence from their followers, and when these followers have carried out violence in response to the calls.
There’s not a week that passes where you don’t hear a threat made to Republicans by Democrat leaders who openly encourage their followers to attack Republicans and others who show support for President Trump. These threats and incitement to commit violence come from the top of the Democratic party leadership which includes members of Congress who have openly given interviews calling for the president’s supporters to be attacked wherever they work or live. Leading this charge is Congresswoman Maxine Waters who has gone on record telling her supporters to confront and harass members of the president’s administration. Imagine that Mitch McConnell or any other Republican member of Congress said that.
Democrat or left wing celebrities have not been left out of this call for violence, as no week passes without one celebrity calling for violence to be carried out on the president himself. Some have gone to the extent of taking pictures with a dummy of the president’s severed head dripping blood. Some have said they wish the president was dead. Some have openly fantasized about killing the president. The list is endless, and they make the calls during interviews on mainstream media organizations, but you would never hear these media organizations say anything about the implicit and explicit threats of violence to the president and his supporters.
On June 14, 2017, in Alexandria, Virginia, Republican member of Congress and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot while practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, scheduled for the following day. Reports said that a lone gunman who was said to be distraught over President Trump’s election opened fire on members of the Republican congressional baseball team at a practice field in this Washington suburb, using a rifle to shower the field with bullets that struck four people, including Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives. The shooter who died in a gun duel with law enforcement officers was later identified as a Democrat, but the media did not use that as proof that Democrats are the cause of all violence in the country.
On July 6, 2018, a viral video made the rounds, of a thirty year old man forcefully taking a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat from a teen in a restaurant, and throwing a drink in the teen’s face. The video is shown below.
Before and after the above incident, there have been countless occasions where peaceful citizens wearing the MAGA hat have been assaulted by Democrats who have zero tolerance for political speech or expression that is not theirs or does not rhyme with their own. Imagine that the man attacking the teen was the one wearing the MAGA hat, and the teen was a Democrat, how would the mainstream media cover it?
A left wing group loosely known as Antifa has made a duty of attacking peaceful right wing protests and rallies, and beating up the participants who they brand Nazis and fascists. The mainstream media, instead of condemning these acts of violence, have lionized the group, thereby giving it the impetus to continue visiting violence on other citizens who are only peacefully exercising their constitutional rights. Imagine that Antifa is a right wing group attacking one of the many pussy hat protests Democrats hold regularly, how would the mainstream media cover it?
In September, A California man was arrested for attempting to stab a Republican congressional candidate with a switchblade. The man, identified as 35-year-old Farzad Fazeli, approached Republican candidate Rudy Peters in an aggressive manner and made disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about the GOP and President Trump, according to witness statements. Rudy Peters, is running against incumbent Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, and was campaigning at a fall festival in Castro Valley, California. I’m betting you didn’t hear any of this, or if you did, not much. Imagine that Mr. Fazeli was a Republican.
The latest Democratic party call for violence was issued by no less a person than the losing presidential candidate in the last presidential election, Hillary Clinton. In a recent interview, Mrs Clinton stated that the party’s rank and file don’t have to bother with being civil. “Civility can start again” when Democrats win back power, she said.
This is in the face of the current charged political climate where Republicans are already being shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats in keeping with already handed down instructions from Democrat leadership. Obviously, Mrs. Clinton believes the violence can be stepped up a notch leading to her charge to her party members to end all civility until she’s put in power.
In all of the incidents mentioned in this article, no time has the mainstream media accused the Democrats of inciting violence, even as these Democrats have explicitly called for violence against their political opponents. Yet, the moment a mentally challenged individual that happens to be a Republican or claims to support Trump does anything, the news is filled with diatribes on how Trump is to blame for inciting violence.
I have yet to hear President Trump tell his followers to shelve civility, or to attack Democrats wherever they live and work, or to harass Democrat government officials anywhere they’re seen. I have yet to hear President Trump or any member of the Republican leadership call for the death of any member of the Democrat leadership. These are things Democrats and their leadership do on a weekly basis, yet the Republicans and President Trump are the violent ones according to the mainstream media.
At this point, it’s clear that what Democrats and the mainstream media mean when they say that President Trump is inciting violence is that the president incites violence in them. The fact that he won the presidency is driving a burning rage in Democrats and the mainstream media they control, and this rage is inciting the violent acts they’re committing and encouraging their followers to commit.
In conclusion, when next you hear them telling you how Trump is inciting violence, compare the things Trump says which is mostly calling some illegal immigrants thieves and murderers, and the explicit calls to violence that Democrat leaders put out on a weekly basis.
