Foiled assassination of former President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton. Bombs mailed to attempt murder at CNN and against liberal philanthropist George Soros.
“Trump has stoked a cold civil war in this country. His rallies brim with menace and he has labeled journalists as enemies of the people. That someone would seek to kill their political enemies is not aberrational but rather the inevitable consequence of Trumps incitement.
The targets are political not incidental. Trump, the greatest demagogue in American history has celebrated violence over and over again. It looks like someone finally took Trump both literally and seriously. The White House will feign outrage when this obvious point is made.
No journalist or commentator should be intimidated from making this point. The stoking of hatred and sundering of the American people was always going to lead to terrible consequences. Chief amongst them would be the initiation of partisan or sectarian violence within our country.” Steve Schmidt
