Rep Cicilline: This is a voicemail I got this week.



David Cicilline ✔ @davidcicilline

This is a voicemail I got this week. Blind loyalty to the President is one thing. This is something else.

10. He's delusional and dangerous. The red states are not contiguous anymore like the south was.

The red states are not contiguous anymore like the south was. There's no Mason-Dixon Line. I doubt the Army is going to side with trump instead of the Constitution as their oath calls for so who's going to fight Civil War 2.0, AR-15 toting, out-of-shape, camo-wearing, middle-aged white guys? They wouldn't last two weeks in the field against the Army.

13. they're not planning on fighting the army

they know damn well they lose that fight
they're planning to murder us. that's much easier to do.

what do you suppose two or three terrorist attacks on inner-city polling stations would do to our turnout rates? after a few of them, they figure they could probably just go back to our typical corrupt election format and not worry about progressive politics or demographic shifts for a decade or more.

15. exactly, polling places full of uniformed police and national guard

and metal detectors and bomb-sniffing dogs and biometric scans and newscasters and memories of bloodshed.

i don't see a miscalculation there, rather a callous disregard for the well-being of fellow Americans in the face of implementing their reactionary agenda.

19. IMO the miscalculation would be them not considering the pushback against them.

It wouldn't last long as they would encounter patriotic resistance just as trump is encountering with the witnesses defying him and stepping forward to testify.

People are not going to sit back and let traitors run roughshod over them.

22. if our turnout were better in ideal conditions I'd agree

but it's hard enough to get people to vote when they don't fear for their lives, and the primary obstacle is how long it takes.

we are voyaging into uncharted waters. the rules, such as they were, are on the verge of no longer applying. we are testing the worn fabric of a sharply divided society. let's hope it holds.

23. I think there are more patriots than traitors. trump's base has not increased since he took...

office. It stays in the 38-42% range despite all his red meat rallies where he doesn't seem to get is all he's doing is preaching to the choir, not widening his base.

And come on, this is all just big talk from a few delusional cretins who will crawl back under the racist rocks they hid under until trump, the cheating repugs and Putin stole the election.

They are in the minority.

28. the problem with the low percentages is in the big numbers

let's say 40% of the electorate approves of traitor Trump, and 1/100 of that 40% might be willing to take some violent action given sufficient propagandistic calls to action (i do think that's lowballing, but give them the benefit of the doubt for now)

and of that 0.4% only 1/10 are so grossly deluded that they would attack people en masse at a polling place. further, only half of those are capable of arming themselves (with guns, explosives, or whatever) and travelling to a suitable location to carry out a terrorist attack. so 0.02%.

in 2018 there were around 120,000,000 voters. 120,000,000 * 0.02/100 = 24,000 raving lunatics who'd be ready to kill urban voters given sufficient provocation. of that 24,000, if even 1/1000 (24) actually went through with it, can you imagine the suppressive impact it would have across the board? "you're voting today, Bill? pretty damn brave of you."

they are a tiny minority, but they have the potential to change everything.

30. Come on. If that happens results from that polling place will not stand. There will have to be...

a re-vote. We can't allow ourselves to be intimidated by threads from big-talking traitors, the vast majority of whom don't have the nerve. And if the threats get so magnified and anticipated police and/or National Guard will be posted at polling places.

31. even assuming a re-vote (far from certain), what does the polling place look like then?(see above)

i agree that we can't let mere verbal threats deter us from voting.
however, if even a tiny fraction of those threats materialize we will soon be living in an unrecognizably strange place.

33. absolutely. i would still vote, but i'd also understand if someone was too afraid.

the solution, imho, would be nationwide vote-by-mail, but the GOP and the courts would stand in the way of any federal implementation. state by state, we need to switch over, and soon.

3. A conversation I hope political consultants are having...

Whether or not death threats and insane calls like this should be turned into ads. I don't know the answer, but watching this I found it so effective how the call ends with "Trump 2020" it made me think about running this and other threats like it as reverse ads during the campaign and concluding them with "Trump 2020". I'm conflicted about it. This call is so disgusting, but it is a summary of how these people think, and to throw it up on TV just like this might be worth thinking about. Like Biden says, this is about the soul of America. Everybody should see exactly what we mean when we talk about a "Trump supporter."

34. The problem is, the Trumpies would air fake ones attributed to Dems that call for bizarre things.

You would hear purported liberals demanding the right to marry their dogs. Islam gets each time in every Christian church service. Anything stupid thing they could think up and threats to teenaged girls galore (Repukes likes ‘em young and juicy.)

The threats are stupid if the caller is serious. Since when does a ‘soldier’ announce to their chosen enemy let them know their strategy for violent retaliation.

Big talkers!

Gun owners feel their right to posess and carry is bigger than any colateral damage that might cause, I for one believe the rule of law is bigger even that the right to own firearms.

20. Trump has a lot of rabid followers, but they wouldn't last a week in a civil war.

There is no chance the military or the national guard would rebel.
Nor would the local or state police.
And the most vocal of these radical Trumpsters are already being watched.
A lot of people could die, but the revolution would end in disaster for the MAGATS.
It would result in a huge backlash against the gun nuts, and be the end of the NRA.
It would also guarantee Democratic control of the Congress and White House for a long time to come.
I don't want to see violence happen, but these people need to know they are finished if they do this.
These guys think they're hot shit, but they're just warm feces.

21. He sounds to me like a mobster

He doesn't sound like he really gives a crap about Trump so much as he cares about intimidating and threatening.

Like the muscle that gets sent out to collect from store owners in a protection racket, the mobster is not really worried about the boss. He's just doing a job to scare the store owner.

I bet this idiot doesn't even vote. I bet someone paid him to call up and threaten Cicilline. He sounds too rehearsed, too practised to be a regular angry voter.

Everything is Not what it seems.

27. The fantasy is,lots of, and much more violent incidents like Charlottesville.

Not gonna happen. They tried to follow up Charlottesville and were completely embarrassed. Total flop, no show.
U S Marshalls and the National Guard won in decades past and will prevail again.

For your information
1 Federal law prohibits advocating the violent overthrow of the United States Government.

2 The more people you shoot, the less people will be inclined to vote your way.
