Just in case there was anyone who is still uncertain if Donald Trump advocates violence in his lust for power and adulation, the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host made his intentions clear in a post on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social.
Among Wednesday’s posting frenzy that included scads of his typical whining, personal attacks, election lies, lame legal defenses, and pathetic self-exaltations, Trump re-posted a comment by one of his glassy-eyed cult followers that should concern every American.
It was an explicit call for, and advocacy of, violence and armed uprising against Democracy. The post was a reply to another Trumpist who speculated about the prospect of Ron DeSantis – or anyone other than Trump – winning the 2024 Republican presidential primary…
“Then they will have to figure out how to fight 80,000,000 + it’s not going to happen again. People my age and old will physically fight for him this time. What we got to lose? I’ll donate the rest of my time here on this planet to do it. And I know many many others who feel the same. They got my 6 and we Are Locked and LOADED”
There is nothing ambiguous about that comment. The poster is blatantly advocating an armed assault during the primary on behalf of Trump with his call to “physically fight” and be “Locked and LOADED.” It is an open embrace of domestic terrorism. And Trump obviously agrees with this anti-American depravity.
This sort of unbridled hostility isn’t new for Trump, After all, he gleefully watched as his cult followers engaged in a violent insurrection against the United States on January 6, 2021. He encouraged them as they threatened members of Congress and sought to hang his Vice-President, Mike Pence. He eventually told the rioters that he loved them. And he has since promised to pardon any of those who were arrested for their criminal conduct.
In the past couple of weeks Twitter and Facebook have restored Trump’s accounts after having suspended him for inciting violence and disseminating dangerous disinformation about election fraud and COVID. That was a terrible mistake that could have been easily predicted to result in further harm to innocent people and to the nation.
Now Trump is proving that he is unfit to be permitted to spread his malicious lies and overt hate speech in public forums. He is telegraphing what he will advocate if/when he returns to social media platforms that are unwilling to take common sense measures to safeguard their users from his malevolence. And when he ultimately sinks to the depths that he is known to inhabit, Twitter and Facebook will share the blame for any harm that comes from it.
