If you accuse Mayor Pete of inciting violence wit his words then you HAVE to accept that Trump's mantra for three years that illegals are 'ruining' this country and are 'attacking' our American values will also incite violence.

Oh look -- it did.....




And there is some truth that Anti-Fa violent members will use this kind of rhetoric to 'fight' against the violent white supremacists.

But it goes two ways -- politician on both sides use the argument.
Well, being an illegal alien is.....illegal.


But there itís not a crime for being a white nationalist or antifia or black panther or kkk

Why every time these mass shootings take place, people on the left just automatically start bringing up gun control. I mean it's like clockwork around here. One mental health nutcase goes off with a gun and everyone else must surrender our second amendment rights.

Instead of a dog whistle, there is a clearly defined definition to what Trump is spewing.

Quote:
Public speech that may incite violence, even without that specific intent, has been given a name: stochastic terrorism, for a pattern that can’t be predicted precisely but can be analyzed statistically. It is the demonization of groups through mass media and other propaganda that can result in a violent act because listeners interpret it as promoting targeted violence — terrorism. And the language is vague enough that it leaves room for plausible deniability and outraged, how-could-you-say-that attacks on critics of the rhetoric.

If you've been preparing a book for 25 years, you're probably not qualified to write it.
Sources, please.

I'm serious. I'd love to see what you have that I don't.

No, the translation is, "Why bother trying to satisfy somebody who will ignore it when I post it?"

Trump is not alt left, the lat time I checked. He is certainly the one who caused the trigger to be pulled in El Paso, however.
