Much is being made in the mainstream media right now about the threats being directed at journalists thanks to President Trump’s incessant and reckless attacks on the media.
In the aftermath of the Annapolis shooting, Trump has doubled down on labeling the media as the “enemy of the people.” When his mindless supporters begin to physically attack reporters — and they will — then Trump will have blood on his hands again.
Not to be left out, the Blade has come in for some, er, colorful attacks from the pro-Trump zombies. Below are some actual, unedited quotes that came to me after publishing last week’s op-ed titled, “10 ways Trump is attacking LGBT rights.”
“You sir are a socialist piece of shit that needs to go suck on Hillary Clinton‘s cock!”
“Why don’t you let people think for them self’s!”
“You are a maggot on society!”
“Thank you for your lies and bullshit propaganda that you pose on the American public!”
“Unfortunately for you not all Trump supporters are idiotic rednecks that have their hands full of meat! Whatever that might mean!”
“I don’t understand why you waste your time with your lies and why you wouldn’t want to try to manipulate people into voting for a murderous tyrant such as Hillary Clinton!”
“People like you I do nothing but spreading hatred And causing riots and disrupting Businesses!”
“You’re probably scared of guns to just like most of you pansy liberals and you want to just arm American public so criminals can take over?”
“Do you want ever take away guns from American citizens and when you try to that’s when you will have your Civil War against liberals.”
“Are you trying to insinuate Some sort of American Civil War is a good idea? Because it seems to me that’s exactly what you and your ill-informed friends and colleagues you’re looking for!”
“It’s pretty funny that you’re calling Trump supporters such as myself simple minded idiots whatever terminology like to use at the same time knowing that if you we are trying to reach are the least informed so good luck with that!”
“I think you should take your socialist ideas and propaganda and move to a country that shares your socialistic ideas and see how good that works out for you! It sickens me that people like you exist on this planet let alone live in my country and badmouth our commander-in-chief!”
“I’m not really sure where you come up with this crap that you’re trying to ensue on people but I applaud you for having the time to think up all of these lies that you were telling Young manipulable millennials.”
“I also don’t understand why you think spending taxpayers money on parties for gay people is justified. If they want to have parties and they should fundraiser.”
“And your article you also wrote that we should all be upset the transgender people should all be allowed to have sex changes for free at the taxpayers expense!”
“The proof is in the numbers! And they are twice as high as your little lover boy Obama’s!”
