A video shown at the pro-Trump “American Priority” conference this weekend at Trump’s Miami resort this weekend depicts President Trump smugly, and gleefully, brutally murdering scores of media and political opponents. Speakers at the conference included Donald Trump Junior, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Ron DeSantis. You need to watch this video to fully comprehend the potentially violent cult mentality the American people are up against.
The following is an incomplete list of the individuals and organizations depicted as assassinated by the President of the United States in the video.
Former President Barack Obama (shoved headfirst into church alter)
Peter Fonda (gunshot to the face)
MSNBC Anchor Rachel Maddow (gunshot to the head)
Representative Adam Schiff (gunshot to the head)
Former Senator John McCain (struck in back of head with gun [Note: McCain died in August 2018 from brain cancer])
Rosie O’Donnell (smashed in throat with Bible then stabbed in head with knife)
Representative Maxine Waters (repeatedly punched and thrown threw church window)
Senator Bernie Sanders (head set on fire)
MSNBC Reporter Mika Brzezinski (falls in front of Trump who shoots her in the head)
Senator Mitt Romney (gunshot to the head)
Harvey Weinstein (impaled on pole)
Former President Bill Clinton (impaled on Weinstein’s poll)
Former Senator Jeff Flake (shot in chest)
Hillary Clinton (stabbed in throat with lower receiver unit of gun)
Politico (gunshot to head)
“Fake News” (various ways several times)
NPR (shot in the back)
PBS (flipped onto back)
Obama Campaign (gunshot to the head)
The New Yorker (gunshot to the chest)
Black Lives Matter (gunshot to the head)
Vice News (gunshot to the face)
Slate (gunshot to the torso)
The Huffington Post (stabbed in the neck)
Buzz Feed (hit in crotch with Bible then throat slit with knife)
MSNBC (stabbed in head with knife taken from Rosie O’Donnell’s throat)
The Hill (shot with gun)
BBC News (punched out, neck broken)
The Guardian (gunshot to head)
CNBC (shot in back)
TPM (stabbed in chest)
CBS (shot in torso)
The Young Turks or TYT (stabbed in stomach)
CNN (impaled on stick through the throat)
This list is not complete. Various times Trump shoots or stabs things that cannot be identified. Others are killed by other people in the crowd.
Those include Kathy Griffin who is depicted being disemboweled by an axe by someone other than Trump. Trumpers went crazy when she appeared in a video holding up a Trump mask done up to look like severed head. She apologized, but it ruined her career, to include being fired by CNN. Notably, for this far lesser thing, she was investigated by the Justice Department, placed for two months on the “No Fly List,” the Interpol list, and has been detained numerous times at airports. By what beyond incomprehensible hypocrisy Trumpers will find it right to condemn and dox her, while cheering this video is beyond my understanding.
Indeed, the worst part of this will be the reaction of the Trumper cult. In their minds this video is not merely acceptable, it’s great, it’s awesome, it’s wonderful. To them this is Trump taking it to the evil socialist fake news pedophile loving left. I’ve already received this response to a post about the video on Twitter.
Of course, it’s not really parody. For those who think it is I have a simple question, exactly what is it a parody of?
In the meantime, the anti-sedition statute at 18 U.S.C. 2385 instructs that anyone who “willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability” to assassinate any officer of the government is guilty of sedition.
