Some Donald Trump supporters are not satisfied with merely defeating Hillary Clinton, they want her dead.

Courtesy of the New Republic:

They’ve got murder on their minds now. 

At the previous Donald Trump rally I’d attended, in Greensboro, North Carolina, Hillary Clinton was called a “bitch” more times that I could count. “Trump That Bitch” was the most common refrain. They shouted it from the rafters, wore T-shirts emblazoned with it. But at a rally in Raleigh on Tuesday night, a new cry rang out: 

“Hang that bitch!” 

The anger among Trump supporters toward the presumptive Democratic nominee apparently had escalated in the past month, perhaps especially so after FBI Director James Comey announced on Tuesday morning that he would not seek criminal charges against Clinton over her email scandal. This was a travesty against justice, obvious proof of corruption. As Trump said on stage, “Today is the best evidence ever, that we’ve seen, that our system is absolutely, totally rigged.” 

Clinton might have escaped criminal justice, but this mob had a different kind of justice in mind. Trumping that bitch was no longer good enough. Now they wanted her dead.

Of course this can be discounted by the Trump supporters as simply one or two overzealous supporters, much like McCain and Palin did back in 2008 when their rallies erupted in racist epithets and calls for the murder of then Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

However it should be remembered that after he was elected President Obama was on the receiving end of more death threats and hate mail than any other president before him.

I imagine the same will probably hold true for Hillary Clinton.

This kind of hate does not simply dissipate at the end of an election. It festers and grows until it becomes impossible to contain.

A growing number of people do not simply want to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House, they want her to disappear for good.

And they don't all call themselves Republicans either.

    I'm not surprised given how much Trump admires Putin. Isn't that how every totalitarian regime deals with opposition?

    I'd just like to revisit a Hillary supporter talking point.

    What baggage does Bernie have that is as bad as this? Worse than this?

    Time and again we were told that this was nothing, would go away, and that Bernie was unvetted and had much more baggage that would come to light and damage his chances should he be the nominee.

    Really? Enough that the Republicans would call for the death of Bernie Sanders if he were the nominee?

    Because I don't care how many hearings are held or how many reports come out. This isn't going away. It's going to continue, it's going to get worse and it will drag on for the next four years if Hillary is elected.

    Trump is going to change from Lyin' Hillary to Criminal Hillary.

    Just sayin'.

    5. Anonymous3:26 PM

      What's worse? Being labeled Crazy or Criminal?

      What's more defensible? Proving you're not Crazy or proving you're not a Criminal?

      I think Bernie would have an easier time proving he isn't crazy than Hillary would have proving she is not a criminal. Her "untrustworthy"ness numbers are very high. When people don't trust you it's hard to convince them you're not a criminal no matter how lame the attacks and evidence is. You can tell them until you're blue in the face but since they don't trust you they won't believe you.

      Yeah, it's over. She won.

      Just saying this has overtones of the Brexit Lies and I would hate for regret to set in if Hillary loses because of this specific weakness. (That was dismissed by TPTB that anointed her before the first vote was cast.) We were told the e-mails weren't important, it would blow over, nothing to see here, don't worry.

      Well, it's not over, it's not going to be over and it's just going to get worse.

      I don't want to hear "We should have gone with Bernie" when President Trump is being sworn in. If that happens I will not stop rubbing noses in ITOLDYOUSO.

      The GOP is a racist violent cesspool. I pity those going to Cleveland.

  5. Anonymous2:43 PM

    Bernie is unelectable in the US because of political choices he made in the past being quite unpopular, fairly or not, with the majority of Americans. And if you don't think his nomination would have resulted in an entire fringe of the GOP suddenly announcing that Hitler had the the right idea, you don't know the Republicans.


    No surprise. You've proven you don't know Democrats, either.

    Stop blaming the victims of hate for the hate. No doubt you think BLM is causing cops to slaughter black citizens, too.

  9. O/T: From The Weekly Sift, June 20th: Our gun problem IS a terrorism problem

    ISIS has found the biggest hole in America’s defenses: our lax gun laws.

    When Democrats in Congress responded to the Pulse nightclub shooting by renewing calls for gun control, Ted Cruz made a sharp distinction:
          This is not a gun control issue; it’s a terrorism issue.
    In other words, if it’s one it can’t be the other. Gallup implicitly endorsed that framing by making its respondents choose. The result was the usual partisan polarization: 79% of Republicans described the Pulse attack as “Islamic terrorism”, while 60% of Democrats called it “domestic gun violence”.

    But following just half a year after the San Bernardino shooting, the Orlando shooting makes the guns-or-terrorism argument obsolete. It’s all one issue now. ISIS is actively encouraging lone-wolf attacks, and the easy availability of AR-15s and other military-style weapons makes the United States uniquely vulnerable to lone-wolf terrorism. Our political inability to control or track even the most destructive guns keeps that hole in our defenses open.

    I’m amazed it took Islamic State strategists so long to figure that out. About a year after 9-11, the Washington metro area was terrorized by someone the press called “the D.C. sniper“. Over a three-week period he shot 13 people apparently at random, ten of whom died. Rather than a mass killing, these were individual attacks that seemed completely unpatterned and unpredictable: one victim was sitting at a bus stop reading a book, another was pumping gas at a self-service station, and a third was walking down a street.

    That’s what made the attacks so terrifying: Wherever you were in the D.C. area and whatever you happened to be doing, if you were out in public you had to consider the possibility that you might suddenly be killed.

    Terrorist plotters may be slow, but eventually they catch on. By now, as Pulse and San Bernadino make clear, ISIS understands very well: One disgruntled, alienated, or insane American (or permanent resident [2]) can easily kill dozens, without breaking any laws until the moment he or she opens fire. …

    Carrying out such an attack requires little planning or training, so such plans have very few points where they are vulnerable to detection or interruption. Omar Mateen, Rizwan Farook, and Tashfeen Malik did not have to spend weeks at some terrorist camp in Syria or Libya. They didn’t need to smuggle anything into the country or coordinate their plans with some handler from ISIS central command. They just had to buy guns, practice shooting them, and then go kill people.

    So it may have taken them a while, but the terrorists have adapted. The question is whether we will adapt, overcome the NRA’s resistance, and force our representatives to face the new reality. Will we find ways to reduce the number of the most lethal guns and make the existing ones easier to track? Will we limit guns’ mass-killing potential by banning high-capacity magazines? Will we allow authorities to track suspicious guns-and-ammunition purchasing patterns?

    That isn’t just a gun-control agenda any more. It’s an anti-terrorism agenda. Given what we’ve seen, any purported anti-terrorism agenda that does not include such gun-control measures is just not serious.

    So…… When is Congress going to get serious???

      @3:49 PM -- What is really scary is who he may pick as a running mate. Should he win, that person will become President when Donald resigns the position -- which I believe to be his game plan. He really doesn't want to be President; he is in it as a popularity contestant.

You can see who has visited your profile and there was a man that visited numerous times.
