There’s a whole lot of what we’re forced to call “people” piling on Donald Trump and blaming him for the non-Whites and Liberals who’ve repeatedly turned to violence against him and his supporters. Essentially, they say he was asking for it.
There’s politicians doing it:
The ugly, divisive rhetoric we are hearing from Donald Trump and the encouragement of violence and aggression is wrong, and it’s dangerous. If you play with matches, you’re going to start a fire you can’t control.
That’s not leadership. That’s political arson.
I would appeal to for every candidate is decency and civility, that we can disagree and disagree forcefully while still respecting each other and not engaging in insults and vulgarity and not encouraging violence.
— Ted Cruz
You wonder if we’re headed in a different direction today where we’re no longer capable of having differences of opinion but in fact now protests become a license to take up violence and take on your opponents physically. This is what happens when a leading presidential candidate goes around feeding into a narrative of bitterness and anger and frustration.
And then there’s the Lamestream Media.
Anybody who tells you that there is no connection between the behavior of the mob at these events and the behavior of the man at the podium leading the mob at these events is not actually watching he’s been saying from the podium. What he has been saying, and the way he has been egging it on, it has been escalating
[sic] … a political campaign whose security has been so stifling as to draw angry comparisons to fascist regimes would plan a key rally for Trump in the middle of a racially diverse urban campus.
Someone care to tell me who, with the exceptions that Mr. Trump is a White and a man, how this is any different from blaming a woman who was drunk or dressed “provocatively” for her own rape? Asking for it is asking for it, after all.
Of course, this question has to be put to the Liberals and Progressives. The non-Whites in these times have a different definition of rape and their behavior vis-a-vis Mr. Trump adheres to that logic.
