Dana Milbank on Trump’s Love of Political Violence

on September 20, 2016

I hate to invoke Godwin’s Law, but it does seem appropriate in the case of Trump and his enablers.
And I’m not sure that Trump himself could stop the worst of what would happen if (G-d forbid) he should win. And if he would even want to.

Dana Milbank, who writes for the Washington Post, had a good column yesterday about Donald Trump’s incitement of political violence.

Perhaps you remember the crowds chanting “Lock her up!” at the GOP convention.

That’s the least of it.

His longtime confidant Roger Stone has talked about a “bloodbath” — rhetorical, he insists — if Trump loses, and Stone has suggested that Clinton should be “executed.” There have been a score of violent confrontations at Trump events, among supporters, opponents, journalists and staff. Shouts of “hang the bitch” are not uncommon at Trump rallies.

Trump has made a point of hinting, implying, and encouraging physical actions against demonstrators and against his opponent.

He has the mindset of a dictator, a strong man, a guy who must flaunt his testosterone. He is scary.

The smell of fascism is in the air.
