Our media and popular culture are full of hatred toward Donald Trump. No story is off limits whether it is true or not. No slur is considered too vicious. Going after his family is perfectly acceptable. However, that isn’t enough. Now we are seeing out and out crime being encouraged.
Recently a group of environmental activists vandalized a Trump golf course. The Washington Post seemed to praise them by declaring it to be a “daring act of defiance”. They did eventually change the wording to “an elaborate act of vandalism”. Even so, the idea that a supposedly unbiased reporter would have encouraging words for a bunch of lawbreakers is hard to imagine.
Rapper Snoop Dogg recently released a video that depicted him shooting a clown that looked like Donald Trump. Actually this is the third song about killing Trump. After the attacks on police by groups like Black Lives Matter, we have seen a sharp increase in police killings. Perhaps the artists doing these disgusting songs have the same thought.
Let’s hope that people like this never get into power. It is obvious that they have no respect for our democracy and the freedoms it guarantees us.
