The media is diligently setting up America to blame Trump when his supporters are viciously attacked by Antifa thugs.
The hypocrisy and arrogance of the media is again on display as they blame Trump for the violent assaults his supporters will suffer at the hands of Leftist haters. By claiming to expect the violence because of Trump, they signal to Antifa psychopaths that their violence against people saying and believing wrong ideas is not their fault and will be excused by society.
I expect violence too. But only because Leftists have perpetrated violence many times in the past and are defended and encouraged by politicians and the media.
I’m sure some Republicans will blame Trump too. They are traitors.
Reuters reports, “Big protests expected as Trump plans Phoenix rally.”
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a Democrat, asked the Republican president to postpone Tuesday’s event scheduled for 7 p.m. MST (0200 GMT on Wednesday) in light of his response to the street battles that broke out earlier this month at a protest against the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville.
Trump was widely criticized for blaming both white nationalists and counter-protesters for the violence at the rally organized by neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
“America is hurting. And it is hurting largely because Trump has doused racial tensions with gasoline,” Stanton wrote in the Washington Post. “With his planned visit to Phoenix on Tuesday, I fear the president may be looking to light a match.”
Several anti-Trump demonstrations are planned for Phoenix, according to social media postings by local activists.
The last Antifa violence was in Boston to attack a Free Speech Rally where there were no white supremacists of any kind. But they attacked Trump supporters anyway and then attacked the police for stopping them.
