An Influential Vet Just Put The Blame For Todays Violence Right Where It Belongs In Epic Rant



His powerful and harsh words should be read by every American and can be found below in their entirety:

I keep trying to get to a point in this insanity where I can write a piece, but itís all going sideways

Snip......................
Ė Fuck Trump. Trump owns this. Republicans own this. This isnít the Alt-Right, this IS the right. These sons of bitches are literally shouting ďSieg TrumpĒ in the streets of Charlottesville right now. Fuck Trump.

These people are the vile residue, the foul distillation, of every failed hateful rotten-tooth inbred ideology in history. Donít let them hide. Donít make excuses for them. Get them out in the open. Make them own it. They have jobs ó some of them. They have parents and kids and neighbors. They have churches. The Constitution gives them a right to their hate, but not a right to be free of the consequences. Publish their pictures. Publish their license plates. Get them out in the open. Pull their hoods off. Theyíre standing out there shouting hate, flying the flag of treason, their arms upraised in the Hitler salute. Make them own it. Make them infamous. Donít let them hide.

10. Absolutely. Dump Incited Violence at rallies against anyone who opposed him or he thought they did

including the media---penned them in and directed negative attention towards them. Threatened them. A fish rots from the head.

13. Trump offered to pay the legal fees for his followers accused of violence.

During the campaign season, Trump offered to pay the legal fees for his followers accused of violence.

Of course it was just more of Trump's lies but it got out his message encouraging violence.

D'ya suppose he will offer to pay the driver's legal fees?

5. He is advocating for physical violence

If I did that, I would get banned from DU. Yet here it is published in Washington Journal and linked right here on DU. My point is that maybe we are too cautious here. Remember when Spencer got punched in the head...twice? There were DUers who said that it was bad. We shouldn't punch people. Well, if more of these assholes had been punched, then maybe a 32 year old woman would still be alive today.

6. not quite on point

I think he is advocating exposure, not violence. Make it clear who this group is, what they believe, and tie them squarely to the Republican party that empowered and sheltered them.

Welcome to the world of tRump.

11. Here

Fuck Nazis. I donít want to hear any social justice warrior bullshit about not confronting these racist shitbags with violence if necessary. They get punched in the head, they take a lead pipe over the skull, well it just plain sucks to be a Nazi. Iím not going to sugar coat that for you. Nazis are Nazis, they deserve nothing but a boot in their yellow teeth and punch in the throat. Theyíre getting off easy. Our grandfathers hunted Nazis down and EXTERMINATED them and itís to our everlasting shame that we let this cancer regrow in our midst. Fuck Nazis.

8. Movements for social justice are nearly wasted efforts if we let

the nazis and white supremacists continue their vile recruitment. What's the point of convicting one bad cop if these people recruut and flood police forces and government?

12. Why is this not domestic terrorism?

Veterans remember your oath. "Support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic".

The Republican party owns this for so, so many reason. For letting Trump spew hate speech. For letting Trump incite violence. For the travel ban citing potential terrorist from Muslim countries. For so many other blatant examples of hate centered in the Trump White House.

The evidence is clear the threats are coming from within our borders. And the president is the one with blood on his hands.
