Trump Murders Journalists and Democrats In Violent Video Released By Supporters October 14, 2019

Stochastic terrorism: A disturbing and violent video depicting Trump shooting and killing journalists and Democrats was shown to supporters at a private campaign event at Trump’s resort in Miami.

The New York Times reports:

A video depicting a macabre scene of a fake President Trump shooting, stabbing and brutally assaulting members of the news media and his political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters at his Miami resort last week, according to footage obtained by The New York Times.

The video shows Trump’s face superimposed on the secret agent played by Colin Firth in the film Kingsman: The Secret Service. In the video, set in the fictional “Church of Fake News,” Trump is seen shooting, stabbing, and assaulting people with the logos of organisations such as CNN, BBC, Buzzfeed, Washington Post, Politico, and Black Lives Matter on their heads. In addition, in the video Trump slaughters people with the faces of Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Bernie Sanders, John McCain, and Hillary Clinton.

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and the President’s son Donald Trump Jr. were featured speakers at the conference.

The violent video is a clear example of stochastic terrorism – “the use of mass public communication, usually against a particular individual or group, which incites or inspires acts of terrorism…”

Commenting on the vile and deplorable video, CNN notes:

Sadly, this is not the first time that supporters of the President have promoted violence against the media in a video they apparently find entertaining — but it is by far and away the worst. The images depicted are vile and horrific,” CNN said in a statement Sunday night.

The President and his family, the White House, and the Trump campaign need to denounce it immediately in the strongest possible terms. Anything less equates to a tacit endorsement of violence and should not be tolerated by anyone.

As one might imagine, the video was widely condemned on social media. The following is a sample of reactions via Twitter:

Bottom line: In a clear incitement to violence, Trump supporters release a violent video showing Trump killing journalists and political opponents, and play the video at a Trump campaign event.
