A Wave of Violence Is Threatening Trump Supporters

protest student campus Antifa protesters violence supporters TrumpGraffiti on a Boston wall screams: “Kill your local Trump supporter.”

Meanwhile, Londoners at a massive protest took turns, under the famous “baby Trump” balloon, at bashing another naked Trump balloon while crowds cheered. Bashers stepped away looking lighter, as though they had been dunked in a river by some cult promising inner salvation.

Children have been pepper-sprayed at free speech protests attended by their parents. The elderly have been beaten nearly to death while walking to their cars, which perhaps sported a Trump sticker on the back.

All these Trump symbols are now invitations to physical attacks in public at worst, or, at the very least, being refused some kind of service. Three young African-American White House interns were holding their MAGA hats in their hands when their Uber driver arrived—and refused to accept them as passengers.

The bloodthirst is not limited to the hooded hooligans of Antifa—it’s also present in very upscale Trump-hating circles: A woman on Martha’s Vineyard expressed a desire to “stab” liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz “through the heart” for arguing against a Trump impeachment. Since when do people talk like this? How did this blood-soaked Jacobin-chic become the new normal?

The window of an art gallery in Portland, Oregon, featuring Trump-hating art, had an image painted on the window of Trump being decapitated with a knife, wincing, with blood pouring down his neck. (The gallery did not respond to calls for comment.) When confronted by Trump supporter and journalist Laura Loomer, and many other calls for it to be removed, the gallery owner finally had the window replaced, and moped self-pityingly over how his right to express himself had been denied.

Breitbart’s John Nolte keeps a “rap sheet” of acts of violence and threats against Trump supporters—now 529. They are terrifying to read.

Nazis

In a 2017 article in The Hill, Mike Isaacson, the leader of an Antifa faction, trumpeted the new ideological embrace of violence:

“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means. There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should.”

The elephantine distortion in this pandemic notion is that Trump supporters are, in effect, Nazis. All conservatives, of all stripes, all libertarians, any and all who are not safely aboard the Trump-hating train are now “Nazis.” We speak of over 60 million Americans, and nobody has yet sought to explain how all these millions of people, never before identified as such, suddenly morphed into Nazis after the election of President Trump—a moderate conservative who prizes open trade and fortified borders, whose daughter has converted to Judaism, and who is a strong supporter of Israel.

Moreover, Trump supporters are conflated with “Nazis” and “fascists” despite being the ones advocating for free speech, a free press, and calling—as in the fast-growing Walk Away movement, for example—for peace, civility, and acceptance of political differences.

None of that matters. A ghost—a boogeyman—is all that is needed to stoke the rage and violence in the name of anti-Trumpism that has swept our nation from coast to coast. The ghost is not Trump himself but media and activist-induced projections of fear and loathing, sui generis.

You can see this from the pattern: No matter what Trump says or does, no matter what good things happen in this country—lowered taxes, a booming economy, plummeting unemployment rates, a detente with North Korea—the haters only become more insistent that the man poses an existential threat to our “Western values” and our “democracy,” and is a “fascist.”

None pause to reflect on the titanic irony that a bonafide fascist makes clear he is a fascist by outlawing and crushing all dissent and criticism against his name.

“I think the media-inciting is the big wave, and then there are paid operatives told to suggest or demand violence,” veteran journalist and author Jon Rappoport, editor of the popular website No More Fake News, said.

“Politicians, media people, celebs—some of these people are bought off or blackmailed, to get them to step into exhorting violence … and after that, other people just follow.  After that, violence becomes OK.  Demanding violence becomes a fashion, a fashionable thing, a fashion statement.”

‘Crazed’

Donato Panico was volunteering for Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin on the morning of June 6 when, from his car outside the campaign office, he saw an elderly man and asked him if he needed any help. The man caught sight of the MAGA cap on the seat next to Panico and flew into a homicidal rage, threatening to kill Panico.

Panico got out of the car and used it as a shield, trying to, at the same time, calm the man down. As the man sped off, he tried to run Panico over.

“He was just totally crazed,” Panico said in an interview following the incident. This “totally crazed” phenomenon comes over some violent anti-Trump protesters.

We asked Jon Du Toit, co-director of the soon to be released film “Hoaxed,” about lies and the media, where this anger comes from.

“As a Christian who holds a biblical worldview, I think everything we see happening around us finds its origins in the supernatural realm,” Du Toit said.

“So yes, I absolutely believe there is a supernatural element to the violence and division caused by the media. My sense is that it’s in response to the changes America has been experiencing since 2016. These are real changes toward the positive—not the illusion of change that was the hallmark of recent administrations. Spiritual pushback against these changes is to be expected, and they will get worse.

“It’s very easy to tear down [the] façade of civility if you give people a legitimate reason to engage in violence. When the 2016 election didn’t go their way, the media industrial complex (mainstream media, deep state, Big Tech) propagated the Nazi/ fascist/KKK/racist meme as a logically disastrous explanation for why Trump won.

“Nevertheless, it is more than enough justification for unhinged people to act out the violent impulses present within every human being. In other words, it’s okay to #PunchANazi—especially when you get to decide who is or isn’t one.

“The violence will escalate,” he continued. “When you have elected representatives like Maxine Waters egging on supporters to physically confront administration officials, anything can happen. As the left continues to taunt and attack their political opponents, there’s no telling when the right’s patience will run out. There is a limit to how much they’ll take, and the left seems hell bent on finding out.”

After White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was famously tossed out of a Virginia restaurant, and she and her family were later harassed further at the next restaurant they went to, Americans took their positions—for or against public shaming, bullying, and violence.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) wasted no time making clear where she stood. Standing in a parking lot, in front of a gaggle of mostly white devotees, she hollered: “And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you call a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere—”

“You ain’t seen nothing yet,” promised the mirthless Ms. Waters.

The Communist Left is edging us closer and closer to Civil War, and If it comes to that it will Not go well for them.

Barbara Floyd

I think a few arrests are in order. Since when do has someone been able to encourage the death of a fellow American in public? There is a law against that. Why are these people not being called to account for inciting violence?

Robert J Curry

Real America loving Patriots need to be seriously think about whether or not they are truly ready to protect Freedom and Family in America, NOW! This HATE America Movement is continuing to escalate, and I do truly believe we may have Civil War if these haters are not stopped soon!
You HAVE to know that George Soros and other Socialists and Communists are behind this movement, paying all of the Progressive demonstrators. Don’t you wonder why there are so many demonstrators on the streets always ready with printed signs to work against America and our Freedom. Bet they are paid professional demonstrators, employed by George Soros and other Socialists! Be prepared to fight or concede.

If you want to save America and your families, arm yourself.

Martha Clark

I’m a nurse, an American, a daughter, a sister, a Trump supporter. I am NOT a Nazi!

Scared to put my Trump sticker on car as crazed Libs here in Austin will no doubt wreck my car…either in parking lot or while I’m driving. I have insurance, but still…I could die!

The Left need to be held accountable for their behavior…something has GOT to give! Sick of this s***!

What the arrogant liberal left doesn’t Understand is that conservatives still have the same determination that our Founding Father’s had. A time will come when we will shout, “ENOUGH” and fight back.
I dread that day. The last thing I want is Civil War in America. However, the communist left is pushing too hard.
The best way to defeat people such as Maxi, frogmouth, Waters is to vote her out of office. Or, better yet, force her to resign because she has become a domestic terrorist.

Donna Kepler

This is not just happening since Trump was elected. Back when I lived in the DC area – which I left nearly 6 years ago – I sometimes found myself in groups of liberals who assumed everybody present was liberal like them. It was interesting to hear how they talked. I also spent some time in groups of conservatives, and I never heard conservatives joke and laugh about how much fun it would be to kill Democrats. I did hear liberals talk that way about Republicans.

Barb

It’s truly sad that some people seem to have nothing better to do with their lives than spend it stirring up trouble. Donald Trump is our president. Get over it and move on to something else and let the man do his job already!

ROGER W KENDALL

Just tell them what nazi stands for, national socialist german workers party, that led to millions of Jews been killed for socialist ideas. I know they have no idea of this because no one in school will tell them the truth.

What a tragedy for our country. Soon, the left is going to push someone a little to hard. That will be the flashpoint that will carry our country into civil war. ThIs occurs when one neighbor lives to “resist” all that is President Trump and can no longer carry on a civil conversation with the man next door without going political and yelling Resist ! Resist! Resist! I don’t understand. We didn’t act like that when Obama was elected each time. We lost and went on with our lives. This whole thing has Soroes and Bloomberg written all over it.

Sadly our churches have become full accomplices in the leftist, pro-regressive cause, too (Catholic in my case). After asking our priest to stop the politicking from the pulpit, it was suggested that we seek another parish where we might feel more “comfortable.” I then suggested that perhaps he might want to talk about this leftist hate, or would that make a lot of other people “uncomfortable.” Didn’t happen. It is truly sad that every institution in this country has been compromised, and either supports or silently condones violent hatred, justifying it as a good moral cause against the evil ones. This won’t end well.

Kim

There are no words to describe what we’re seeing from the left. There’s a Trump/Pence sticker on the back of my truck, and I can’t tell you how many times cars passing me came “this close” to my left side.
No matter how tempting it would be to fight fire with fire, we have to resist. Moderates who are growing tired of the ridiculous behavior of their comrades are more likely to switch sides if we maintain our cool and continue to explain how our policies help everyone. “What would they have to lose?”
Once Jeff Sessions emerges from the broom closet and puts his lollipop away, perhaps he will then go after these thugs with the full force of the law.

Poque Mahoney

Our country was not at war with itself before Mr. Obama showed up.

Let’s just think – if the conservative right had done these things when the last president was in office, the uproar would have been deafening from those same idiots touting this “push back” now. So it’s ok for them to do those things now, threatening people with death, but if done to them they would have cried loud and long and the media would have covered such that it all would be construed as racism. The liberal left are just like a bunch of 2 year olds who don’t get their way or what they want and throw a tantrum until they feel better. The really sad thing is they have NO regret about doing it. Is law enforcement officials purposely throwing a blind eye at these illegal threats? Something needs to be done before there actually is Civil War. I will do whatever it takes to defend my family… Read more »

I am a proud supporter of President Trump. I wear my MAGA hat. I have Viet Nam license Plates on my car. And I am legally armed. If any liberal tries to harm me of my family, They will become familiar with the business end of a 9mm. I will not tolerate their threats.

Keith Mc.

Those on the left are acting more like terrorist’s and MS-13 gang members. Best watch your backs when we go vote in November because they’ll be waiting around the polling places.

Cherie

Any sane mind can see clearly what the Progressive Left nut jobs are trying to achieve. They have found that their birdbrained ideas aren’t selling to the masses, so they have resorted to employing ignorant bullies to induce violence as a means of pushing us into conforming, good little communists! Ha!! Good luck with that because one day these bullies will find that they were just being used by their cruel plantation owners. When these idiots are no longer of any use to them, they will be disposed of, most likely in a not so friendly manner! It will be too late for them to realize they have been “had,” as they will be unwanted by either their handlers or anyone else. Since no one, even Progressives, want to live among savages, they will have no place to go! Good riddance would be an understatement!!

Don Cook

I think they are pushing a little to far, and they are not going to like the pay backs when they come, and they are coming….

Three young African-American White House interns were holding their MAGA hats in their hands when their Uber driver arrived—and refused to accept them as passengers.
I read about this several days ago and the article I read said nothing about them being African Americans, just said they were interns and were picked up by an Uber driver and because of the discussion they were having in the car the driver pulled over into a gas station when they were halfway to their destination and made them get out.
How can we believe anything from any news outlet anymore when none seem to get the true story? So which is true?

Bob

I have said it before here that theses left wing bullies are nothing more than sissy cowards. Do not be afraid to stand your ground and fight back. Fight violence with violence. We will win. The next civil war will not be over race but liberals. Va cinservatives n we will winz
