Assassination Dogwhistles: Media Ramps Up Dangerous Rhetoric Against President Trump


Imagine if the sitting President of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, a man with his finger on the nuclear button and the authority to start wars just because, was a mentally unstable megalomaniac who stole the election and was on the path to murdering his critics and launching a racist Holy War… Would it not be a moral and patriotic act to assassinate this man?

Long before Donald Trump became president, our culture made it clear that murdering dangerous tyrants before they have a chance to become dangerous tyrants, is a righteous and heroic act.

Just last year, CNN itself asked then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush the "Would You Kill Baby Hitler?" question.  Numerous fictional stories have been told on television, movies, and elsewhere, that explore what is presented as an ideal situation.

And now our national media is consciously and regularly sending out messages aimed to portray Trump as a racist, mentally unstable, soon-to-be murderous tyrant.
