deadspin: Donald Trump is basically advocating for white violence




Donald Trump is basically advocating for white violence. His actions continue to prove it.

On Thursday, hundreds of people carrying firearms descended on Michigan’s state capitol building to protest Governor Gretchen Whitner’s stay at home order extension to May 15.

A move that was seemingly constructed to intimidate lawmakers to lift safety restrictions on a state that has been one of the hardest hit by COVID-19. As of Thursday, Michigan had reported nearly 3,800 deaths in total and 119 deaths on Wednesday alone.




On Friday morning, Trump sent out a tweet calling these individuals who swarmed the capitol “very good people.”

He even implored Whitmer to “make them a deal” and instructed her to “give a little.” ...

3. Most wearing mask.

She might order every one on the Capital lawn must wear a mask. Might cut about 3/4 of them from exercising their rights.

4. Predictions Trump would incite his armed mobs to violence when defeat seemed imminent are

apparently coming true. I just couldn't foresee what crisis would trigger these uprisings. Now it's becoming quite clear.

Perhaps this sort of thing happened during some particularly chaotic and violent time in our country's history. Still, I can't recall when the President of the United States ever actually egged on his heavily-armed followers to physically storm numerous capitol buildings in Democratic states.

Under normal circumstances a president would send out the National Guard to keep the peace, or at least take to the airwaves and ask for calm. Not Trump. This POS calls these armed thugs "very good people," and demands the governor negotiate with the terrorists.

5. Imagine what would happen if a bunch of African Americans would

show up at the state capitol carrying assault rifles.

I think the National Guard is under the state Governor's command?
