The loser of the presidential election tweeted: “I WON THE ELECTION!”
No, he didn’t. This is just another fascist Big Lie.
This deluge of extremist lies started decades ago with angry accusations of "liberal media", that soon morphed into, "Liberals hate America" and racist birtherism.
And speaking of jackboot-style fascism, we recall “Second Amendment remedies” were invoked by Republicans when Obama was president.
Then came the rallies, with hateful chants of, "Lock her up!"
In 2016 Trump suggested,"Second Amendment people" could "do" something about Hillary Clinton.
Last year Trump boasted, "I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad."
After Trump tweeted, “LIBERATE MICHIGAN”, MAGA terrorists plotted to kidnap and kill the governor of Michigan.
Sunday night, in response to Governor Whitmer’s new covid safety protocols, Trump’s pandemic “advisor” Scott Atlas tweeted: “The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp”
Dr. Mengele wasn't the last evil medical doctor.
They are now reptilian Republicans.
Let's be clear. All of these Republicans are instigating terrorism, and party leadership will not condemn these remarks.
The term Stochastic Terrorism best describes the far Right/Republican incitement of political violence:
Stochastic Terrorism was first noted here: 1. The use of mass communication to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. 2. Remote-control murder by lone wolf.
And Dictionary.com says Stochastic Terrorism is: the public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act, which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted:The lone-wolf attack was apparently influenced by the rhetoric of stochastic terrorism.
Lest anyone assume I’m exaggerating the threat of Trump’s stochastic terrorism, ABC News found 54 cases invoking Trump in connection with violence, threats, and alleged assaults.
This is the American Right today.
The Party of Trump:
No bar too low.
No lie too big.
No heart too cold.
No mind too small.
No hate too intense.
Every elected Republican is an enemy of truth, democracy and equality. Fascism is the only possible endgame behind their authoritarian contempt for these values.
