Once someone has been made into the new Hitler the case has been effectively made that it becomes morally justifiable to kill him to prevent the horrors that would occur if the individual rises to power. Such is the case with presumptive Republican nominee – for now anyway – Donald Trump who has been given that tab by a terminally corrupt media. The demonization is working like a charm because a disturbed young man planned to do exactly that at a Las Vegas rally over the weekend but was stopped by law enforcement officers at the scene.
The Guardian is reporting “British man tried to take officer’s gun to kill Donald Trump at rally, police say”:
A British man has been detained and charged with attempting to seize a police officer’s gun at a Las Vegas rally in order to commit an act of violence against Donald Trump, authorities said on Monday.
Michael Steven Sandford was arrested at the Saturday rally after grabbing at the holster and handle of a gun at the hip of a Las Vegas police officer who was providing security at the event for the presumptive Republican nominee.
A federal magistrate on Monday found that Sandford was “a danger to the community and a risk of non-appearance” and ordered that he be held without bail, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, who also confirmed that Sandford is a British citizen.
Sandford allegedly told a US agent, referred to in the complaint as special agent Swierkowski, that he had driven to Las Vegas from California in order to kill the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
According to the complaint, Sandford had gone to a gun range called Battlefield Vegas on 17 June in order to learn how to shoot. There, he fired 20 rounds from a Glock 9mm pistol, which, the complaint says, was the first time he had ever fired a gun.
The document also states that Sandford told Swierkowski that if he were on the street tomorrow, he would try it again. He claimed he had lived in the US for approximately a year and a half and had been planning to attempt to kill Trump for about a year but finally felt confident enough to try it on Saturday, according to Swierkowski’s report.
He also told Swierkowski that he had tickets for a Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, later that day, and planned to try to kill Trump there as well.
Outside of a short blurb by the Associated Press on the incident, no other U.S. media outlets have bothered to mention this. Why do you suppose that is? Were the situation flipped and had someone done the exact same thing at a Hillary Clinton rally there would be howls for a fascist crackdown and Trump would have been blamed for it. Could it be that perhaps having some freak who has been egged on by the 52 consecutive “Hate Week” propaganda campaigns and who believes that Trump is the new Hitler being driven to take action is the desired result?
It’s like Stalin once famously remarked “death solves all problems, no man no problem” and Trump has managed to become one hell of a problem for an establishment that is now fully arrayed against him.
