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?

Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

It seems inexplicable.

A group of Americans invaded the US Capitol with a plan to kidnap and kill the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, hoping that would throw the Electoral College vote to the US House, where Republicans would declare Donald Trump the winner.
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
