The Republican Party has long employed brazenly violent imagery and narratives to advance their anti-democratic agenda. And in the Era of Trump they escalated it levels that eventually led to the deadly January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C. that Donald Trump incited.
in conjunction with that authoritarian style hostility, the GOP’s Ministry of Disinformation – Fox News – has embraced the themes of warfare as a means of keeping their viewers engaged, and more importantly, consumed with blinding anger. The network is committed to the encouragement of violence on behalf of Republican politics and the MAGA movement of Trump.
On Wednesday night, Jesse Watters (who replaced the ultra-violent Tucker Carlson) delivered a frothing tirade that was dripping with the sort of malice that inspires public massacres. He was mortified by the recent news that Trump was indicted for the third time on felony charges of undermining democracy. And he was determined to see to it that retribution would be meted out to everyone he regarded to be Trump’s tormentors. He harangued…
“If Trump wins, after he pardons himself, welcome to the Revenge Tour. Oh, he’ll be out for blood. You think he’s going to let bygones be bygones? He’s going to put his men at Justice, and the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, the Pelosi’s, the Schiff’s, and yeah, of course, the Bidens, everyone will be legally assaulted. Their family members, providers, their businesses, everything’s fair game after this. Trump won’t care about reelection because he’s only serving one term.”

SHEESH! Watters managed to cram in every scrap of animus he could muster. He began by floating the notion that Trump would pardon himself, for which there is no provision in the Constitution. What’s more, Watters was not subtle about his lust for “assault[ing]” Trump’s perceived foes and for Trump being “out for [the] blood” of even their family members.
Watters also warned that Trump’s revenge rampages would be unhindered by public will because he wouldn’t have to face another election. That should stir fear in the heart of every rational, patriotic American. But it’s even more disturbing than it appears on the surface. Watters is right if all means is that Trump could not run for a third term. But the prospect of Trump declaring himself president-for-life is a plausible one considering his efforts to cling to power after he lost in 2020.
This isn’t the first time that Watters has expressed his yearning for deadly violence. He previously raged that citizens who disagreed with Dr. Anthony Fauci should “go in with the kill shot.” But as sick as that is, most of Watters’ ravings are grossly oversaturated with his sexual perversions.
