Is the Media Responsible For The Attempted Assassination of Donald Trump?

Assassinate Donald Trump? Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do when you are dealing with Hitler?

A nineteen-year-old attempted to assassinate Donald Trump.

So here is a juicy media story about “a white guy with a gun” (or attempting to snatch a gun). So why aren’t they making a bigger deal about this? The fact that he was in the country illegally might not have fit the media’s preferred narrative. According to CW33, he was a Brit whose visa had expired.

But is there any doubt about his motive? The media and Left have been using code words for Hitler to describe Trump from the beginning—besides those who have openly compared him to Hitler. Trump is a “demagogue” and a “racist” according to the regime.

Granted, there is a mental health angle:

Of note, it was also revealed that Sandford was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. […] wikipedia associates the mental psychiatric disease with some of the following symptons:

  • Delayed social maturity and social reasoning.
  • Difficulty making friends and often teased by other children.
  • Difficulty with the communication and control of emotions.

According to Sandford’s mother, her son had spent time in a hospital at age 14 where he was treated for anorexia and had once broken out of that hospital before he was detained.

Delayed social maturity would make him more receptive to media narratives. He was probably more easily brainwashed.

The media and the Left have make excuses for violence against Donald Trump and even blamed Trump for his attackers. They have pumped out this sociopathic fantasy for over a year now. Finally, they were able to get someone to actually try to assassinate Donald Trump.

The rhetoric has been entirely irresponsible. I’m surprised this hasn’t happened before. I would not be surprised if it happens again.
