Recently, a popular pastor from Florida, Rodney Howard-Browne, shared an alleged plot (which he claims was told to him by an unnamed congressman) to “take out” President Trump.
Howard-Browne’s claims are a bit outlandish, but if there is any validity to them, it is worth mentioning.
The pastor says he was made privy to this plot, which claimed is to “remove Trump suddenly from office,” and has since been interviewed by the Secret Service, although he has refused to cooperate with them further, telling them he’s not sure who he can trust.
Wild as his story may be, it shouldn’t be ignored, especially considering the fact that since the election results came in, there have been an uncountable number of death threats and calls for assassinating President Trump.
If there is one shred of credibility behind this story, it should be investigated to the fullest.
The violent rhetoric which has been spewed day and night against our president is unlike anything in American history, and is not only disgusting, but highly disturbing.
If anyone has been trying to keep a list of famous people who’ve made death threats against President Trump, it would be a hard enough task, but factoring in the random liberal lunatics into the equation makes it an impossible one.
How many times have we heard a celebrity get on Twitter and call for an assassination attempt on our president?
They do it in person too, it’s gotten so out of hand, and they’re never held accountable for their dangerous comments, that they don’t hesitate to urge the public to commit violence.
The thing is, these people are not just making asinine comments, and they’re not just venting their frustrations; their violent rhetoric HAS gotten people hurt already.
A prime example of that is Steve Scalise, who was shot in a politically motivated shooting by a bloodthirsty liberal. That’s just one instance, how many Trump supporters have been beaten (or worse) simply for wearing a MAGA hat?
This sort of violence has been getting worse and worse, and has been thoroughly encouraged by celebrities, the mainstream media, and even elected Democrat politicians.
Never before in the history of America have we seen something like this, and it’s getting worse by the week.
Perhaps the first really memorable example of celebrities crossing the line was rapper Snoop Dogg and his little thuglette, Bow-Wow, or “Shad Moss” as he now goes by.
Shad made some disgusting comments about RAPING Melania Trump, our First Lady, which went completely unpunished, and his uncle Snoop followed suit with some extremely violent and graphic rhetoric about shooting President Trump.
One instance that really stood above the rest, however, was washed up “comedian” Kathy Griffin, who posed for a sickening photoshoot which would have made ISIS proud.
Griffin went so far as to have professional photographs made of herself holding up a fake severed head, which had been molded in the likeness of President Trump, and was covered in fake blood.
It was so over the top that the Secret Service DID pay her a visit, but of course, nothing was actually done about the incident.
Shortly after Griffin’s grisly photoshoot, wife-beater Johnny Depp decided he’d try to outdo her, and openly called for Trump’s assassination at an awards ceremony in Britain.
Depp tried to be coy, and made a not-so-subtle attempt to reference the assassination of President Lincoln, which did not go unnoticed.
When called out for his classless comment, Depp issued a half-hearted and insincere “apology” which no-one believed for a second.
The list goes on and on, and includes other celebrities like Michael Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, Keith Olbermann, John Cusack, and so many others.
Not one of these people has been held accountable for their violent and unforgivable comments, and the fact that these high-profile individuals have gotten away with their dangerous threats has emboldened the hordes of angry and dejected liberals who worship them.
All of these repeated calls for violence against our President should have the Secret Service on high alert at all times, and they should have already made stern and swift examples of people by now.
Of course, it will be harder to convict a celebrity or politician of a crime than the average citizen, but some of these maniacs have crossed the line so badly that even the most biased judge would have to hand down a punishment.
These calls for violence and assassination cannot continue to go unpunished and unanswered; examples must be made, and law and order must be restored.
Pastor Howard-Browne’s comments may or may not be true, we don’t know that at this point.
Given his hesitation to go into greater detail, there are a number of different conclusions that could be drawn, but when put in context, it should be enough to alarm any Trump supporter.
We chose President Trump because we wanted to take back America from the establishment elites and the radical left, and because we were sick and tired of watching our culture and our values get destroyed in the name of “progressivism.”
If we want to achieve the things we chose President Trump to do, we need to make sure that he stays safe, and as long as the leftwing media and celebrities continue to call for violence against him, that will be hard to do.
