In today’s issue: “The Resistance” is how many of Donald Trump’s political opponents have identified themselves and their objective. Michael Savage, commenting on the shooting of Republican lawmakers and aides Wednesday by a Bernie Sanders supporter, pointed out that labels and ideas have consequences.
“Well, we all know what happened. We all know [about] the coming civil war that Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, Eric Holder — I will even say Rachel Maddow — have been screaming for,” he said.
“You know, the words like resist,” said Savage.
“You know, resist means something. It means kill. It means shoot, doesn’t it?”
Am I allowed to ask the question of who do you blame for this?
We know that the baseball gunman was a Trump-hating white male Bernie supporter — and communism has consequences.
Socialism has consequences. Screaming about hatred and hatred and hatred and hate and hate and hate, like that sneering creature on MSNBC does every night, with that filthy sneer on her face every night hating Trump.
Every night calling for resistance.
Well, he went off like a rocket, as I feared would happen.
James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois, went on a rampage. Staunch Democrat, threatened to “destroy Trump and company” on social media before the shooting, which coincided with President Trump’s 71st birthday.
He campaigned, of course, for the communist Bernie Sanders, who says he’s not a communist.
But he is a communist, and communist is violence and death.
Well, he opened fire on a group of guys playing baseball.
I predicted this would happen, but it’s not about me, it’s about you.
Who do you blame for this?
… I’m going to ask another few questions that came to my mind today.
Should Trump take control of Twitter for not monitoring haters?
You heard me. Is it time for the government to take control of the out-of-control pirates on social media, like Facebook and Twitter, who did not monitor left-wing haters?
Should Rachel “Madcow” and the haters be removed from the airwaves by the federal government for their constant drumbeat of hatred against Trump and Republicans calling for, amongst other things, resistance, with their sneers every night?
You heard me. There are consequences to hating day and night, and calling for something to happen to Republicans and Trump supporters.
Are we already in a civil war now?
Now, we move to the leadership, or lack thereof, of Donald Trump.
I heard the speech, and I was very, very disappointed.
Donald Trump, first of all, waited hours before he came out from behind the curtain to say something. That’s long after the left already took control of the issue.
That guy, McAuliffe, whatever his name is in Virginia, was already running for president, calling for gun control.
Trump was not yet ready for this day.
He did not show leadership. He gave a vanilla speech that Romney could have given.
Now, you could say it was a safe speech and a smart speech, because they couldn’t attack him.
I’m sorry. I didn’t elect a milquetoast. I worked because I saw a forceful man who would take on the radical left.
I worked for Trump to get him elected because I saw a strong man who would take these left-wing fanatics on.
He had the opportunity and he blew it, frankly.
