Inciting violence?

Donald "Ol' Foot in Mouth" Trump has the Dems pinging off the walls, with his recent comments about the Second Amendment:

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Trump said with a shrug at a rally here after accusing Clinton of wanting to strip Americans of their gun rights. He paused, then softly offered a postscript: “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The Dems insist that Ol' Foot in Mouth is inciting the gun nuts to take up arms against the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Even some Republicans expressed concern, if only about the 'awkwardness' of Ol' Foot in Mouth's phrasing:

... Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), one of Trump’s most ardent defenders, struggled to fully embrace his comments. Sessions insisted in an interview on CNN that Trump did not mean to encourage violence, but he acknowledged that Trump’s words were “awkwardly phrased.”

Trumpkins are pooh-poohing the very idea that Ol' Foot in Mouth was fomenting revolution:

“In no way was he threatening Hillary,” said Sarah Smith, a 72-year-old retiree who attended the rally in Wilmington where Trump made the remark. “Anybody who thinks that is delusional.”

Well ... here's the thing. A 'normal' person might - almost certainly would - see through the 'awkwardness', might not even see the 'awkwardness', and make no connection between Ol' Foot in Mouth's comment and incitement to violence ... if the 'normal' person were listening to a 'normal' candidate.

But Trump knows full well what kind of mentalities he has out there in his Sturmabteilung, his Brown Shirts, the ones who scream  "Kill the bitch!" in  reference to the Clinton Crime Syndicate, shout "F**k the nigger!" in reference to President Obama, kick and beat anti-Trump protestors ... all with the glowing acquiescence and tacit approval of their Leader.



I don't believe for a minute that Trump didn't know exactly what he was doing with that comment. He planted the seed in the minds (I use the term loosely) of his Sturmabteilung. Then, feigning wide-eyed innocence, he claims, "I did no such thing ...".




Yeah, Trump, you did.
