I’ve said this before and I’ll keep saying it until someone at the Justice Department or Secret Service gets off their ass and starts holding Democrats responsible for their thinly veiled attempts to incite violence against POTUS Donald Trump.
Over the weekend, ‘little’ Dick Durbin of Illinois became the latest Democrat to dog-whistle to violent Leftists that it’s alright if they want to take their anger out on the president and hurt him at some point in the future because he is a ‘domestic terrorist.’ Or someone who incites domestic terrorism. Or something.
During an appearance on CNN — where else? — Sunday, Little Dick actually said that the president’s rhetoric sends the message that crazies have a “permission slip” to commit terror attacks after a shooter killed one and wounded three at a San Diego synagogue the day before.
Calling the attack “domestic terrorism,” Durbin said that the Trump administration would have responded differently had the attacker been non-white or a Muslim.
“Had there been someone from the Middle East involved in this, someone with a green card involved in this, can you imagine the alerts that would have come out from the White House about the threats of terrorism to the United States?” he said during an appearance on CNN’s New Day.
“Yet this president does just the opposite. With a wink and a nod he says to these nationalists and supremacists, ‘I know they are just trying to protect the statue of Robert E. Lee,'” Durbin said, in reference to Trump’s 2017 comments following the violent Unite the Right March in Charlottesville, Virginia.
What a lowlife piece of cow excrement this man is — and ditto for the network turd who set Durbin up with a softball question designed to allow him to dump all of this on the president.
First of all, the Sacramento synagogue shooter publicly trashed POTUS Trump and conservatives in general, so there’s that. Implying that Trump was, therefore, guilty, somehow, of inciting the attack is complete BS and, were Durbin not a member of Congress and protected from liability laws, he’d likely wind up losing in court over saying such a thing.
Same with the “Charlottesville” reference; for the 1,000th time, the president made it clear he was not taking sides with white supremacists or the Left-wing Nazi wannabes from Antifa who regularly heap violence and abuse on the president’s supporters…so much so, even Obama’s DHS grew concerned about their domestic terrorist tendencies.
But referencing the president in the same breath as he discusses “domestic terrorism” is nothing but a dog whistle from Durbin to every violent, Left-wing kook already living on the edge with “Trump Derangement Syndrome” to ‘go ahead and take of this threat to the country that we Democrats have identified.’
POTUS Trump isn’t winking and nodding; Democrats like Durbin are. And he knows it.
And lo and behold, let’s look at the plethora of examples proving which party is the bigger threat to stability in our country and, specifically, to our president:
— October 2018: “As the Left-wing ‘establishment’ media chides POTUS Donald Trump to ‘tone down his rhetoric’ following the horrific Pittsburgh synagogue shootings on Saturday, the same disgusting hypocrites refuse to condemn their ideological soulmates for perpetrating acts of violence against Republicans.
“As reported by local WFTV, police say at least four shots were fired through a window into the Volusia County GOP HQ, and though nobody was hurt, it’s just the latest violent act directed at Republicans.”
— We published a collection of videos featuring Democrats, Left-wing media types, and of course Antifa all committing or calling for violence against the president and his supporters.
— As we also noted the hate spewing from Trump’s vanquished Democrat foe, the most criminally investigated presidential contender ever, Hillary Clinton:
…[W]here was the widespread media condemnation when twice-failed presidential loser Hillary Clinton said recently that her side of the political aisle should not be “civil” to the other side of the aisle?
In an interview with CNN (who else?), Clinton stated plainly that it is not possible to be civil with a party (the GOP) “that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” She noted further that if Democrats can win back one or both chambers of Congress, “that’s when civility can start again.”
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength,” she said.
— Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has called on supporters to physically confront members of POTUS Trump’s Cabinet wherever they find them and to “push back on them.”
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” she said earlier this year.
— A a “political analyst” for MSNBC, Elise Jordan “advised” Republican lawmakers to avoid embracing and defending Trump, whom she said “lied” to the country over earlier statements regarding fired FBI Director James Comey and “tapes,” comparing it to “hugging a suicide bomber.”
“My advice would just be to Republicans who do coy up to him — it’s like hugging a suicide bomber. He blows you up in the process with him.”
— Shortly after a deranged Leftist lunatic nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and several other GOP lawmakers and staffers, we reported:
The calculated hate-filled rhetoric against Republicans and President Donald J. Trump that has been spewed by the Alt-Left for months finally paid off, or nearly did, last week, when Hodgkinson brought a high-powered rifle to Republicans’ early-morning practice for the annual bipartisan softball game at a field in northern Virginia, with the intent of killing as many GOP lawmakers as he could. Come to find out, he even had a “hit list,” the FBI discovered.
After the shooting took place, Sanders said he was “sickened” by it, adding: “Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.”
Only, in 2011, after another deranged Leftist attempted to assassinate then-U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., Sanders fundraised off the shooting, falsely blaming former GOP vice presidential nominee and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
There are additional examples, but you get the drift: If anyone is dog-whistling violence to followers, it’s the Democrats. And these are all things that Democrats would have never put up with if they had been said about Barack Obama.
Dick Durbin, Maxine Waters, Bernie Sanders, and most other Left-wing Democrats have such a disdain for our president they shamelessly send signal after signal to their deranged supporters that he’s too dangerous for the country to remain in power.
How long is it going to be before one of these lunatics acts on their ‘advice’?
