Yesterday, the FBI, who, despite what Donald Trump will tell you, are the good guys, busted a ring of terrorists planning to kidnap the governor of Michigan. The FBI charged 13 men. Some were plotting to start a civil war. Others were planning to storm the state capitol building.
Gee. Storming the state capitol building in Michigan. Why does that ring a bell? Why does that sound familiar? Why does that….oh yeah! Just a few months ago, rabid rabble rousing fucknuts did storm the state capitol building in Michigan, demanding the state to reopen businesses and to stop a face mask mandate. The capitol-building storming was brought on, encouraged, inspired, motivated, and endorsed by the president (sic) of the United States of America.
A few months ago, Donald Trump tweeted that his militia fucks should “liberate Michigan.” He also encouraged them to “liberate Virginia” and to “liberate Minnesota.” All three of these states have Democratic governors and are considered by Trump to be swing states (Virginia is NOT).
The plans to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer have Donald Trump’s fingerprints all over them.
The FBI has named white nationalists as the greatest terrorist threat in the United States. Not Antifa, not Black Lives Matter (which is a civil rights group), and not even ISIS. Hell, al Qaida is barely even on the radar nowadays. But for more than a year, the White House rebuffed the Department of Homeland Security from making domestic terrorism a priority. Domestic terrorists are Donald Trump’s base.
During the one debate Donald Trump had with Joe Biden, where he was probably trying to give his opponent a virus, Donald Trump played down the threat from white terrorists.
Donald Trump said most of the violence he sees are from groups like Antifa, which isn’t even an organized group. There is no Antifa. There are people who identify as Antifa, but there’s not an actual organization.
After white nationalists and other assorted tiki-torch Nazis marched in Charlottesville in 2017, chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil,” Trump said there were good people on both sides.
During the debate, Donald Trump told Proud Boys, another white supremacist hate group, to “stand back and stand by.” Within minutes, the Proud Boys tweeted his words with a brand new logo featuring, “Stand back, Stand by.” Overall, there were over 5,000 tweets from racist individuals inspired by Trump’s shout-out from a national platform in prime time.
Even after the FBI busted the white Michigan terrorists, Trump sent out a tweet, attacking the governor and going after Antifa.
You know who else never showed any appreciation for the efforts by the government to save him? The lindbergh Baby. That little ungrateful bastard.
Donald Trump was also trying to take credit for the FBI busting the Michigan terrorists, even though he’s the one who supported them. Also, Donald Trump refused to use the word “terrorists.”
In fact, most headlines didn’t use the word “terrorists.” Most used “militia.” But let’s call them what they are. They’re terrorists. Again, let’s call them what they are. They’re Trump supporters.
There were inspired, just like the Proud Boys, by Donald J. Fucking Trump. The president (sic) of the United States is endorsing terrorism. He’s encouraging terrorism. And just like his calls for them to be “poll watchers,” he called for them to liberate Michigan. And following his orders, they sought to kidnap and possibly murder a democratically-elected governor of a state.
The Michigan terrorist planned to use explosives, to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home, to take her to Wisconsin for a “trial” and to do it all before the November election.
Governor Whitmer said, “I knew this job would be hard. But I’ll be honest, I never could have imagined anything like this.” You know, we knew having Donald Trump as president (sic) would be a disaster, but we never imagined it would be anything like this.
How could we have imagined an American president would give shout-outs to hate groups? How could we have imagined an American president would be an apologist for Nazis? How could we have imagined an American president would create new slogans for white supremacists? How could we have imagined an American president would give marching orders to terrorists? How could we have imagined the entire Republican Party would be OK with this? How could we have imagined there would be a base of support that would say, “I’m not a racist but….Nazis? Yeah, OK. I’m voting for him anyway.”?
The Michigan “militia” belongs to Donald Trump. These terrorists are his people and the same kind of people from Michigan who gave us Timothy McVeigh and conducted the Oklahoma City bombing. Why are white supremacists, Nazis, Proud Boys, the KKK, white nationalists, and terrorists the president’s (sic) people? Because white terrorists are the president’s (sic) base of support.
The FBI says white nationalists groups are the greatest terrorist threat to this nation.
That means Donald J. Trump is the greatest terrorist threat to this nation.
