‘Fascism In The Flesh’: Trump Warns of Violence If Dems Win Midterms

‘Fascism In The Flesh’: Trump Warns of Violence If Dems Win Midterms August 29, 2018

Threats of violence: Donald Trump warns conservative Christians of “violence” if Democrats win and the GOP loses in the upcoming 2018 midterms.

Speaking to evangelicals during closed-door remarks earlier this week, Trump warned of dire consequences should Republicans lose in the midterm elections.

Claiming that “the level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable” Trump addressed the influential group of conservative pastors and other conservative Christian leaders gathered in the State Dining Room.

Trump said:

The level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable. Part of it is because of some of the things I’ve done for you and for me and for my family, but I’ve done them….

This November 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it’s a referendum on your religion, it’s a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment. It’s a referendum on so much.

Describing what would happen should the GOP lose in 2018, Trump added:

It’s not a question of like or dislike, it’s a question that they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they will do it quickly and violently. And violently. There is violence. When you look at Antifa — these are violent people. You have tremendous power. You were saying, in this room, you have people who preach to almost 200 million people. Depending on which Sunday we’re talking about.

Responding to Trump’s remarks, New Jersey congressman Bill Pascrell labeled Trump’s remarks concerning violence “fascism in the flesh.” 

Rep. Pascrell tweeted:

This is fascism in the flesh. This is the language of a fanatic that could be lifted from a tyrant’s playbook. This is not a warning but an incitement. Unless we stand united against it.

Bottom line: An ominous Donald Trump tells a room full of conservative Christian leaders that there will be “violence” if Democrats win and the GOP loses in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
