NY Times: Violent parody video shown at Trump resort

Source: AP

WASHINGTON — A graphically violent parody video, shown at a meeting of President Donald Trump's supporters at his Miami resort, depicted a likeness of the president shooting and stabbing his opponents and members of the news media in a church, The New York Times reported Sunday.

In the video, Trump's critics and media members are portrayed as parishioners fleeing his gruesome rampage. The fake Trump strikes the late Sen. John McCain in the neck, hits and stabs TV personality Rosie O'Donnell in the face, lights Sen. Bernie Sanders' head on fire and shoots or otherwise assaults people whose faces are replaced with news organization logos.

The video was shown last week at an American Priority conference at Trump's Doral Miami resort, the newspaper said. Trump was not there. Event organizer Alex Phillips told the Times the video was played as part of a "meme exhibit" and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference "in any official capacity." ''American Priority rejects all political violence," he said, and is looking into the matter.

The video includes the logo for Trump's 2020 campaign but Tim Murtaugh, spokesman for the re-election organization, told the Times the "video was not produced by the campaign, and we do not condone violence."

... "Grotesque."

Count me as profoundly disturbed.

that these are the people who are going to kill them one day. They continue to empower them at their peril.

5. Why can't the GOP police it's own???

 

Find myself in a place of not wanting the left not challenged on their ideas. Especially the center. As this is the only way to produce 'strong ideas.' But I also take your point.

This is the double-fuck of Mr. Trump. His rabid base will attack NYT Et al. for not going after dems like they do with him, so the NYT publishes such garbage stories in a bit to be viewed as fair. But of course me being a radical socialist, I'm never happy with the NYT, which is something the right fails to see. That the entire DNC isn't full of 'socialist.' We are a fringe faction.

Plus isn't the NYT protected by some George Soros interdimensional cloaking spell?

Trump would be working Coney Island, lifting wallets and biting the heads off rats for quarters. They made the asshole who he is today.

The only publication ever to show Trump as wife cheating, mobbed up, con man he is, was Spy Magazine, back in the 80s.

9. As a journalist I find this chilling, even more so since Trump has not denounced it,

thus tacitly signaling support for mass murder of reporters.

Who made the video? They should be shamed and boycotted, and perhaps even arrested for inciting violence. If any journalist gets killed or harmed, they should sue the fillm maker.

32. I'd rationalize the video too if my narrative demanded it of me.

I'd also pretend a thin veneer of 'sincerity and innocence' were applicable by alleging "I was just pointing out one thing..." and hide behind implication as well.

19. Democratic politicians were also depicted

being killed in this stupid video. It made tRump look slimmer than he has EVER been, plus more active. Not the slow moving, lumbering large blob of orange goo. The person who made this video needs to be outed. O'Keefe? This is disgusting. I hope Doral's bedbugs are still active there. Nothing would satisfy me more than to see photos of tRump Jr. Huckerbee Sanders and Guilfoyle covered with bedbug bites.

14. GRAPHIC VIOLENCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



In the video — which features a modified clip from the 2014 film “Kingsman: The Secret Service” — a man with Trump’s superimposed face goes on a violent and bloody rampage inside what’s called the “Church of Fake News.”

The figure can be seen walking in the church as other people with logos over their heads from a bevy of news outlets — including PBS, NPR, HuffPost and The Washington Post — sit in the pews. The Trump-like figure then pulls out a gun and opens fire on the media outlets. Other fake versions of political and media figures are then attacked in the clip, including former FBI Director James Comey, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and the late Arizona Sen. John McCain.

A likeness of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 presidential candidate, later has his head lit on fire with a blow torch.

23. The obvious symbolism of this video...

Trump going into a church and killing the "impure" liberals....

I think that's meant to portray Trump as a latter day Jesus...going into the "sacred" temple (e.g. The United States, Congress, Media etc) and cleansing it with righteous violence...to depict Jesus driving the "money changers out of the temple".

This is dangerous crap....

But the evangelicals still believe that he is "god's anointed savior of America".

27. If anyone watched George HW Bush's funeral - it was obvious he didn't even know how to behave!

He was an embarrassment there, no big surprise. But he obviously had never been to church before, so he was just his usual rude attention seeking self!

29. True also...

this video is intended to solidify his evangelical support...

if it starts showing up at campaign rallies, you can be sure that the plan is to mobilize and radicalize his supporters to pose a threat (maybe real threat) to his impeachment.

30. That's one thing that even Jimmy Carter has brought up

Why do the evangelicals persist in voting Republican?? He doesn't get it and neither do I - and Trump is the most extreme example - he's the guy who hoards all the gold who they're taught to beware of!

16. If any Democratic party-allied group showed a similar video, but with Trump as the victim,

Secret Service agents would investigate and Barr's DOJ would file charges for threatening the president's life.

Oh, now I remember. A"tasteless" obviously staged parody photo. I believe the "conservative outrage" went on for well over a month.
