In the end ….. if, (and that’s a big IF) this will be a win for Trump.
Here’s the full context of the Trump statement.
Now, people here know I’ve never been one to carry Trump’s water, but, this is ridiculous.
The first thing I read, coming off work, were the emboldened words. I thought, even for Trump this is too whacked, there must be more to this …… and, clearly, there is. Anyone who can conceive this is a call to violence needs to burn their voter registration card, continue listening to Madonna or whatever and never again speak of politics. Never vote in the US ever, again. They won’t, but, that’s what they need to do if this nation will ever again have a meaningful political dialogue.
The “Second Amendment people”, or as Trump later refers to them, the “NRA”, are a gun safety advocacy group. In their entire history as an organization, they’ve never advocated violence against anyone, never. Nor, would they ever associate with anyone advocating violence against anyone …. with the exception of people engaging in self-defense.
People need to read a real history book. The NRA was formed to counter gun violence against minorities and laws which didn’t allow them to protect themselves.
Any statement which has more than two sentences can be taken out of context. It is impossible to say anything meaningful without offering an excerpt which can be taken out of context. While Trump has made many unforced errors, this isn’t one of them.
The NRA and other “2nd Amendment people” have long been politically active and politically and legally fighting the advocates of totalitarianism ….. never advocating violence against anyone.
The ignorance displayed towards the statement Trump made is intolerable.
Someone thinks this is a call to commit violence against Hillary? Hillary has given the American people enough reason to commit violence against her, all by herself. We don’t because that’s not how a civil society works. Consider all of the anti-gun owner statements Hillary and her minions have made over the course of history, include the current president. If we were that easily incited to violence of such, then, it would have already occurred. It’s the leftards who don’t know anything about guns who commit such violence.
I, for one, am sick of this.
Above is what the man said. Who finds that as a call to violence? Who allows themselves to be manipulated to see that as a call to violence? It’s not an error of Trump’s, it is an intentional mischaracterization to what he said.
