The Democrats just can’t get over Trump’s thrashing of Hillary Clinton. They can’t blame Clinton’s loss on Bush, but Putin fits nicely in their playbook. That is, the Russians stole the presidency from Clinton, thereby making Trump an illegitimate president.
Anger over Clinton’s loss has led many on the left to hate Trump and to express their hated publicly. It’s been a long time in our history since a president has been so hated. I believe that because of this hatred, President Trump is in real danger of getting assassinated.
The internet is replete with hateful comments about Trump. That’s bad enough. But when celebrities express their hatred of Trump publicly, their inflammatory words and actions could lead to the assassination of our president.
Here are just three examples:
- During her performance at the British 2017 BRIT Awards, Katy Perry hung and set fire to skeletal effigies of Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
- During January’s Women’s March in Washington, Madonna expressed her anger over Trump’s election by telling the throngs that “I thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
- In a new music video, Snoop Dog using a toy gun, shoots a clown resembling Trump.
While Katy Perry and Madonna’s disgusting capers are bad enough, Snoop Dog went way over the top in expressing his hatred of our president.
In an interview with Billboard, Snoop Dog said he was motivated to make the video because of “the ban [on immigrants] that this mother***er tried to put up, him winning the presidency, police being able to kill mother***ers and get away with it, people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years.”
Snoop Dog, unlike Perry and Madonna, is nothing but a piece of excrement who struck it lucky as a rapper. He was a member of the Rollin’ 20 Crips gang in Long Beach, California. Shortly after graduating from high school – give him credit for that – he was busted for possession of cocaine and spent the next three years in and out of jail.
There are too many crazies out there itching to be in the national spotlight, so that we do not need to have celebrities motivating them into attempting an assassination of our president.
What would have happened to Clint Eastwood had he expressed blowing up Obama’s White House? What would have happened to Kid Rock had he made a video in which he shot President Obama? There’s no doubt that Obama’s feds would have arrested them forthwith. And they would have probably been safer locked up than free to face the fury of Obama’s supporters.
Celebrities have every right to express their dislike or hatred of Trump, but not in a way that could lead to the assassination of our president. Shame on Perry, Madonna, Snoop and their ilk. There should be a special place in hell for them.
