The evidence for asymmetrical socialist thuggery just keeps pouring in. Having long gone bankrupt in the arena of ideas, the Left continues to resort to violence in order to silence their opponents. The spate of riots and attacks on Trump supporters continues to grow both at his rallies and elsewhere where people publicly declare their support of Trump’s views about what’s wrong with America.
Now we have Dilbert creator, cartoonist and social commentator Scott Adams, declaring that he ‘endorses’ Hillary for his own physical security. On his blog (here) Adams says that since Hillary is doing everything possible to plant the idea that Trump equates with Hitler, this gives people the “moral permission” to assassinate Trump or anyone accessible who supports his views. In Adams’ words –
And I would be a top-ten assassination target in that scenario because once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him. And obviously it would be okay to kill anyone who actively supports a genocidal dictator, including anyone who wrote about his persuasion skills in positive terms. (I’m called an “apologist” on Twitter, or sometimes just Joseph Goebbels).
If Clinton successfully pairs Trump with Hitler in your mind – as she is doing – and loses anyway, about a quarter of the country will think it is morally justified to assassinate their own leader. I too would feel that way if an actual Hitler came to power in this country. I would join the resistance and try to take out the Hitler-like leader. You should do the same. No one wants an actual President Hitler.
So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
As I have often said, I have no psychic powers and I don’t know which candidate would be the best president. But I do know which outcome is most likely to get me killed by my fellow citizens. So for safety reason, I’m on team Clinton.
Yes Virginia, our country really has come to this. Ask if your mom will let you watch the videos on the news. (H/T to reader for this)
