The only surprise here is that there’s been so few attempts on his life already.
Emoluments, Stormy Daniels, Russia collusion, the Mueller report, impeachment…The Left has played damn near every card in the deck against Donald Trump to no result whatsoever. Leftists are getting down to the bottom of the deck, and the final card: assassination.
This is not to say that the Democrats or even the denizens of the Deep State would directly involve themselves in an assassination attempt against the president. (Though I would go so far as to say that they would welcome it.) But let’s consider the landscape…
Follows, a brief recap of violent-Left assassination beat-off fantasies, threats, actual assaults against noncomfortists, mass-murder attempts, and so on, a familiar litany that I won’t transcribe here. Then:
There are, of course, many other incidents, but those will suffice: the opposition is no longer loyal or respectable. It has gone functionally insane. The Democrats have been transformed into the party of the fanatic, the messianic, the depraved, and the demented. The Left is obsessed with stopping Donald Trump at all costs and, as its slogan goes, “by any means necessary.” If these people can’t do it by legal or even the borderline means of the past three years, it is likely they will try to kill him.
Likely? It’s an all-but-certainty, seems to me. After all, “these people” are completely bereft of morals, perspective, or shame, and acknowledge no restraint or limitation whatever on their Divine Right to rule. After Trump wins 49 states next year, expect the number of assassination attempts against him to blow away all records as the Left reprobates are faced to confront the scale of their rejection by Real Americans, then pulls out all the stops to go full-on fascist in their neverending quest for power.
Trump would probably be shocked by this—as I’ve said, his greatest weakness is that he still believes in and loves this country, and has great faith in the essential decency of its people even those with whom no decency is not in evidence—but the rest of us shouldn’t be. We should also bear in mind that it isn’t really Trump they hate; it’s us. And if you think they wouldn’t be eager to widen the scope of any post-election campaign of assassination should they meet with any success in eliminating or incapacitating Trump, you’re just kidding yourself.
