Time for a National Conversation About MSM Incitement of Violence Against Trump, the GOP…And You
Time for a National Conversation About MSM Incitement of Violence Against Trump, the GOP…And You by James Kirkpatrick – UNZ Review
This was inevitable. As of this writing, Congressman Steve Scalise remains in critical condition after being shot by a fanatically anti-Trump, Bernie Sanders supporting white male.
Needless to say, after the Main Stream Media has spent months screaming Republicans are literal traitors in service to a foreign power and that the President of the United States won office illegitimately in a “hacked election,” it’s not surprising elected officials are going to be attacked by Leftist partisans gaslit into shrieking hysteria.
Consider the New Normal:
- Celebrities feeling emboldened to make “art” celebrating the murder or even decapitation of the Commander-in-Chief
- Journalists abandoning even the pretense of objectivity
- Street violence against conservatives and right wingers being openly celebrated
- Intelligence and enforcement agencies trying to bring down the elected chief executive
- Accusations of “treason” being made by “mainstream” Democrats backed by literally no evidence
What’s really remarkable is that there hasn’t been even more violence.

Yet this actually understates the malevolence of what is occurring. As the irreplaceable Vox Day put it in his classic book SJWs Always Lie, one of the rules of far-Left “Social Justice Warrior” behavior is that “SJWs Always Project.” It’s not just that the Left is encouraging violence while blaming conservatives. It’s that the Left is using this non-existent wave of supposed Right-wing violence to justify a sweeping crackdown on freedom of speech.
Just before Donald Trump’s election, we were told the Republican campaign had unleashed a wave of terror against racial minorities nationwide, including, most spectacularly, the burning of a black church, with the words “Vote Trump” triumphantly plastered on the ruins. This, of course, turned out to be fake.
After Donald Trump became President Trump, we were told of a wave of “hate crimes” nationwide allegedly inspired by the new Chief Executive. This became the rationale for a whole new round of MSM condemnations of the president for allegedly not “speaking up” to denounce the crimes which he, after all, had nothing to do with [Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes Are Spiking In The U.S. Donald Trump Won’t Speak Up, by Carol Kuruvilla, Huffington Post, February 27, 2017].
Of course, many of these “crimes” were either nonexistent or not even crimes as all (such as putting up flyers which Communists find “hateful” or allegedly saying mean words) [Big Spike In ‘Hate Crimes?’ Not So Fast, by Leo Hohmann, WND, November 21, 2016]. Nonetheless, our money-grubbing friends at the Southern Poverty Law Center demanded President Trump “apologize” for allegedly unleashing this supposed spate of nonexistent crimes. [Trump ‘Must Apologize For Unleashing Hate Crimes,’ by Art Moore, WND, November 29, 2016]
This was taken to its most spectacular extreme when there was a wave of “anti-Semitic bomb threats” supposedly made against Jewish community centers nationwide. The MSM screamed Donald Trump was to blame and accused him of not doing enough to combat this dire threat, even after the president actually acknowledged it at the beginning of his first State of the Union [Trump notes anti-Semitic threats and vandalism in speech to Congress, by Ron Kampeas, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, February 28, 2017. However, it then emerged some of the threats had been made by Juan Thompson, a black journalist. And an Israeli-American dual citizen was eventually found to be responsible for the rest.
