it was a threat, and it should be taken as such

I am speaking of "that" tweet by Rump. Listen, I've had Dem yard signs torn down, and my mailbox has been bashed in twice (once with Kerry and once with Obama). Also, once, driving coming home,I had someone chase me and try to run me off the road (Dem bumper stickers).

For anyone who lives in a rural red area knows exactly the type of aggression I am speaking of.

I will never stop wearing my blue colors, but this crap freaks me out. bigtime.

on edit: it was in an interview,not a tweet

1. The Police and Military must deny it

and condemn it. As for bikers, the toughest ones are liberals anyway. Not like those rightwing poseurs.

2. Even in very blue areas, we deal with angry and physical Trump voters.

So yes, in a rural, red area it must be even worse.

4. i posted this on another thread

but, there was a comment that we should not worry about them because 90% are old, and the remaining 10% are 270+ pds.

I am a 125 pd female, and a 270 pd angry man coming at me can cause some damage. That comment had to come from a man living in a mostly blue area.

Someone is going to get hurt or worse

5. I agree with you.

This is a serious threat and should be taken as such. When has a leader of a western democracy ever threatened violence against his own people simply for disagreeing with him politically? This is what fascist dictators do. We can not let this go by without incident.

8. This is a clear threat.

This is despicable. It should be called out by military leaders, police, politicians—including Republicans. Of course, it likely will not be unless we push this. I think we should.

albeit a thinly veiled threat. My God, what has this country come to? A hideous lawless man has overtaken our democracy.

13. tRump is a career criminal, a con artist & the boss of the trump/republican crime family

who also happens to be president of the United States. It seems that he can get away with anything, is unimpeachable and, so far, unstoppable. The country may not survive the breaking point when that point is reached.

14. I live in a very red area

During Obama’s 08 campaign I bought about 20 Obama signs. The first one was simply pulled out of the ground. By the last one (just before the election) the signs were shredded into tiny little pieces by the time I drove my kids to school at 7:20am. I’m sure it frustrated them greatly that I kept replacing them each day they were destroyed. My mom (a republican) seemed to understand the depraviy of her party because she was always telling me to take them down so my kids and pets weren’t targeted.
This threat is not okay.

16. Yes, it was a threat.

But what the fuck can WE do about it? I am at a loss. Even if someone gets shot or killed from this statement by Agent Orange, it would not stop him.

said that they do not think it will be like a Civil War but a few gun nuts and testosterone driven incels.

29. Has anyone contacted the FBI about this threat yet?

I mean, really, PB. He isn't shooting a single person on 5th Ave. He's trying his damnedest to get others to shoot 6 million people all around the country.

I won't say what I truly believe needs to happen to him, but you can probably guess.

30. If gun manufacturers can be sued for directing their marketing

toward males with testosterone issues than why can's citizens sue the fucking moron for pretty much the same thing?
Some day (the sooner the better) I will wake up and turn on the news and there will be a shooting and I will say "thoughts and prayers" with sarcasm and glee because, well, you know.....

23. Don't feel frightened and you are not alone...

That's exactly what he and his supporters want.

When the rubber meets the road we will prevail.

Britain stood alone against Hitler until the Americans were forced to get off the sideline...

That fascist and his current devotees will meet the same fate.

History is repeating itself...

but Trump's comments sound like the excuse of a batterer ("look what you made me do" ) regarding violence.
