Is Trump Whipping Up Violence In Anticipation of the Mueller Report?

Thom plus logo We may be on the verge of seeing the Mueller report, at the same time that Steve King is encouraging Trump followers to prepare for a civil war, saying his side has "8 trillion bullets." Thank about that - a civil war is the only kind of war where, literally, neighbors kill their neighbors, family members murder family members, all in the name of politics.

That's what Steve King and others in the GOP are calling for or implying in their not-so-subtle ways. Even Trump is talking about how he's got the cops and the bikers, and, if Oregon's experience is any indicator where the cops were coordinating with the Proud Boys, Trump is right. So, how do we respond? Prepare for a war and get ready to kill our neighbor if he shows up at our house with an AR-15?

In any other time in our lifetimes even suggesting such a thing would have been considered insane, but the biggest backers of Trump/Pence now are evangelicals who think this is the end time, which is also supposed to be a bloodbath.

Or how do we stop this rhetoric from the Bannon/Pence apocalyptic right, or at least marginalize it, when the guy in the White House keeps whipping it up, and, when the Mueller Report comes out, will probably put a civil war front and center for his own re-election campaign to keep himself and his family out of jail?
