Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report |Opinion | March 18, 2019) – The horrific slaughter of 50 innocent lives in New Zealand on Friday March 15, 2019, by a proud white supremacist who pushed himself to the extreme far right online, and sought to thrill his fellow white supremacist comrades by filming the massacre live on Facebook, has made us question whether there’s a connection between Trump’s harsh rhetoric and the escalation of white nationalist violence.
The white nationalist toxic hatred for all non-whites has been building for two years, seething to the surface in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017, and then erupting out of control.
The world was stunned by Trump’s refusal to condemn the white nationalist violence in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017, instead stating “You also had some very fine people on both sides.” This tone deaf remark, following the death of Heather Heyer, conveyed a strong subliminal message that Trump was supporting the white nationalist movement.
After learning that the white supremacist terrorist in New Zealand wrote a 74 page manifesto using the same rhetoric as Trump, this alarming concern that Trump might be inciting violence has to be addressed.
Trump’s tweets and inflammatory public statements are red flags. Michael Cohen revealed to Americans in his public hearing that Trump speaks in coded messages to avoid being accountable, just like a MOB boss. But his words are still triggers, regardless. During Trump’s bizarre two hour CPAC speech on March 2, 2019, he strongly referenced Make America Great Again, emphasizing the color red to such a troubling degree that many were concerned. One could’t help but wonder if he was emphasizing blood red as the reason why red is key. Trump appeared to be promoting violence by emphasizing the importance of (blood) red.
“The key is in the color. Make America Great Again. Right? Right?” ~ Donald J. Trump, March 2, 2019 | CPAC
Sunday March 17, 2019 | St. Patrick’s Day. So now, one can’t help but wonder if a tweet like this one on Sunday, is actually a coded message promoting more violence, especially since Trump posted the same tweet on Wednesday of last week, which was immediately followed by a violent hate massacre two days later. Coincidence or intentional?
Wednesday March 13, 2019. And was this a trigger? After planning for two years, did the New Zealand terrorist perhaps see this Trump tweet one day, then strike the next?
We need to track this. There doesn’t seem to be a cohesive strategy for preventing domestic terror attacks in the US right now. Is that intentional?
