Is Trump inciting violence?

CNN is getting credible death threats of mass shootings:

A Michigan man was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot and kill CNN employees, WGCL-TV reported Monday.

The FBI launched an investigation after the man, who is unnamed in the CBS report, reportedly called CNN 22 times about a week ago.

“Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down,” the man told a CNN operator, according to court documents obtained by WGCL-TV.

He allegedly later called CNN again, saying, “I’m smarter than you. More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours.”

“I am coming to Georgia right now to go to the CNN headquarters to f—ing gun every single last one of you,” he said.

The FBI were able to trace the call and arrested the man over the threats.

Trump probably used the White House phone.

But seriously folks, this is starting to sound a lot like Brigham Young stirring up the Saints in Utah until they dressed up like Paiutes and massacred 120+ men, women and children in Mountain Meadows. Or like Henry II throwing a tantrum asking “who will rid me of this meddlesome priest??” (They promptly dashed off to lop off the top of Thomas Beckett’s head while he was praying in a cathedral).

So, you know, words are powerful. Especially when you’ve spent the last decade making people think they are under attack by their neighbors.

Bad, Donald, BAD DOG! No biscuit for you.

Someone should check to see that he hasn’t violated any laws against the press. Or incited violence. This is serious shit, right up there with Saddam Hussein.
