Some pertinent and interesting quotes:
“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia,” Trump tweeted. “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”
“Sen. Amanda F. Chase (R-Chesterfield), who plans to speak at the rally, warned on Facebook that authorities might send a troublemaker into the crowd — a “government plant,” she said — to cause a disruption as an excuse to arrest attendees on “domestic terrorist” charges.”
“Let me make one thing unequivocally clear: I do not advocate for violence ever, ever,” Yingling said. “But if he [Northam] keeps pushing people, people are going to feel that they’re not going to have another choice.”
“The frustrating thing to me is, if something does happen, that’ll be all people talk about,” Van Cleave said. “My view is, we have no control. We’re telling police everything we know about and trusting them to do their job.”
OK, let’s see what we have here from leaders.
“…2nd Amendment is under very serious attack…”
“…authorities might send a troublemaker into the crowd…”
“…people are going to feel that they’re not going to have another choice.”
“…we have no control.”
If there were better ways to advocate violence while sounding apologetic or not responsible I am not sure what it would be.
I love the “people not having another choice”. Of course they do. It is called the ballot box. But these #$%holes are deciding that if they don’t like what is happening, then they will react violently.
In my opinion anyone who advocates violence because they don’t like a law or a government should be charged with treason.
