Mussolini Mini-Me's threats are gaining traction in the media.

Trump again nods toward violence by his supporters — and maybe something bigger

No matter what the White House says, President Trump has repeatedly and not-subtly suggested his supporters could be violent — sometimes in an approving manner. And there’s a common thread running through much of it: Again and again, Trump has suggested they could rise up if they feel either they or Trump have been wronged by the political process.

There are several examples. The most well-worn was when Trump suggested during the 2016 campaign that “Second Amendment people” could stop a President Hillary Clinton from installing liberal judges. Trump played it off as a coincidence unrelated to violence that he flagged gun-rights supporters as the last line of defense against a political outcome he opposed.

Now, Trump is at it again. And this time, his statement has overtones of something bigger.

1. It's been there all along

...and it's been so normalized over time that now, nobody "really" thinks those dog whistles actually MEAN anything...right?


I thought this in November 16...and Basically told myself that at least living in a less populated area might be better for me to avoid the riots in the streets. Then again, Nevada is pretty nearby and they are all Trumper gun nuts.
