Washington Post Very Concerned That Trump’s Rhetoric Whips Up Violence

They have exactly one example, but, hey, they must do what they can to bash Trump and protect illegal aliens. Interestingly, the Editorial Board is just fine blaming Trump, and by extension, his supporters, for this, but fails to hold Islam responsible for the numerous and constant attacks by Islamic jihadis. I’m also waiting with baited breath for the WPEB to blame Blacks for all the violence in their own neighborhoods, backed by Democratic party anti-police policies

Mr. Trump’s immigrant-bashing rhetoric breeds violence

DONALD TRUMP’S rapidly expanding catalogue of bombast is already a weighty tome, and it’s a fool’s errand to take each of his utterances seriously. Still, his loathsome comment on Wednesday, in which he excused violence against a Hispanic man in Boston as “passionate” acts of “people who are following me,” taps into a dark vein in American history and merits special attention.

In the Boston incident, two brothers were charged with using a metal pole to assault a 58-year-old Hispanic man. The man, who was homeless, was left with a broken nose and other injuries to his face, arms and chest. “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” one of the brothers, Scott Leader, told police, the Boston Globe reported.

Of course, Trump never once called for violence against illegals. BTW, it wasn’t Trump who released vast amounts of violent illegal aliens.

When Mr. Trump was told of the incident, in which the brothers also are alleged to have urinated on the man before beating him, he said the following: “It would be a shame. . . . I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

They are passionate. They are tired of the status quo. They are tired of politicians in it for their own benefit. They are also not the ones who killed a woman on a pier in San Francisco. That would be an illegal alien.

Mr. Trump, under a barrage of criticism, took more than a day to retreat from his original statement, finally tweeting that he “would never condone violence” and “we must treat each other with respect.” This from the man who slandered undocumented immigrants as “rapists” and suggested Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly had asked him tough questions because she was menstruating.

The menstruating thing has already been shot down, but, hey, newspapers are not places of facts. As far as rapists go, how about this one? And this one? I could continue listing case after case.

Mr. Trump’s immigrant-bashing rhetoric is intended to galvanize political anger and win Republican primaries, not incite a lynch mob. The trouble is that his contempt-filled hyperbole appeals not to rational discourse but to passions — passions that can and do get out of hand.

Of course, Trump is not bashing immigrants, but illegal aliens. To Leftists, they are one and the same, as they have no respect for the rule of law. But, by their own standards, the Democratic Party, and, hey, the Washington Post, bear responsibility for any attacks on police officers, who have been bashed.

What this really all shows is that the WPEB is taking Trump’s candidacy seriously, knowing that he is a threat to Hillary or whichever Democrat wins the primary in the race for the White House. Funny thing is, the more Trump is attacked by Democrats, the liberal media, and even the GOP Establishment, the more ground he gains.

    Trump’s demagoguery is not to blame for the actions of violent, far-right sociopaths.

    America is fertile soil for a demagogue such as Mr. Trump. Income and wealth differences are expanding. Middle class wages are stagnant. Corporations and governments are reneging on pension promises. Americans lost trillions of wealth when the real estate bubble predictably burst. Many Americans are looking for scapegoats – e.g., Mexicans, Muslims, Blacks – demons who steal white jobs, rape white women and murder – while ignoring the plutocrats that are looting America.

    Trump promises to cut through the red tape (the Constitution), deporting those American citizens he finds distasteful (except to staff his businesses), go in and “get” ISIS, and out-negotiate those Mexicans and Chinese who are stealing our jobs.

    Will the Republican Party now work to repeal the 14th Amendment? Doubtful. Trump is demagoguing. Will President Trump deport 13 million, some of them citizens? Trump is demagoguing. Will President Trump invade Iraq and Syria? Demagoguery.

    Teach should christianity be held responsible for all of the Americans that are killed by other Americans because God told someone that they should be killed ?

    Take a good look at that Old Testament God was always telling ten Jews that he wanted them to wipe out cities and to spare no one, well except for virgin girls who would become captive sex slaves.
    Any chance that Yahew and Allah might be the same evil God ?

    “American citizens very concerned about hoards of illegals, many of them violent, entering the country.” “Will the Republican party work to repeal the 14th amendment? You mean the party that basically wrote and was instrumental in passing the 14th amendment, over the objections of the Democrats? No. Is president Obama still working to circumvent Article II of the constitution, whereby the president is supposed to “take care that laws be faithfully executed?” You know, like immigration laws?

    It’s good to know that today’s conservative Repubs won’t undo the good works of the liberal Repubs that passed the 14th Amendment over the objections of those conservative Dems!

    The Democratic Party should be embarrassed by and should apologize for the conservative southern Dems from their past. Not to mention the Dixiecrats. The southern conservatives moved to the Republican Party.

    “Affirmative Action” Trump is riding the wave of nativist, anti-immigrant hysteria in the Republican Party. Recall the Repubs are known as the Caucasian, Christian and Conservative Party. Trump’s only policy positions so far are to build a giant wall with his name on it and make Mexico pay for it, and send anchor babies like Jindal, Cruz and Rubio back where their parents came from!

  5. Jeffery says:

    Is Donnie Trump an Anchor Baby?

    Besides hiding his birth certificate, is it possible that Donald Trump is an anchor baby? Where is the evidence that his mother, born in Scotland, was in the US legally? His father, Fred Trump, was born to German parents who may have been in America illegally.

    And why did the family anglicize its family name “Drumpf” to “Trump”? Perhaps President Donald Drumpf has a bad ring to it. Why does Donald Trump lie about his German heritage, instead claiming to be of Swedish descent? Curiouser and curiouser.

    Except for the hundreds of millions and the successful family business (which Donald took over at age 25) that his father left to him, Donald Trump is a self-made man.

  6. Jeffery says:

    What’s Trump Hiding?

    Donald Trump needs to release his long-form birth certificate, his passport records and his college records from Fordham and the Ivy League Penn.

    We, The People, will request his tax returns but those will remain hidden.
