Trump has a master plan when it comes to gun violence. And as usual the MSM has it all wrong. They suppose that the recent increase in gun violence is an unintended consequence of Trump’s rhetoric. But its not. The violence and associated fear are his intention. Why does he grin when he is supposed to be consoling the victims of the horrible mass-shootings? Its because he’s unabashedly celebrating as his plan has the intended impact on America.
Trump is like a cornered animal, and as such he is more dangerous that ever before. He knows that he will lose the 2020 election in a landslide unless he does something. He knows that if he’s ever prosecuted for his crimes there is a very good chance that he will be convicted and jailed. So he will do whatever it takes to remain in power.
Trump has a plan. He knows that using derogatory and dehumanizing terms like “animal”, “criminal”, “killer”, “rapist”, and “predator” will initiate many of his unstable followers to act violently. And their actions will cause violent counter-reactions from anti-fa and other leftist groups. So he does everything he can to light the first fuse. The mass killings last week and the panic this week are just the beginning. His followers are motivated, armed, and dangerous. They have been told by Trump who to target: Blacks, Hispanics (immigrant or otherwise), liberals, elites, the press, Muslims, Jews, Hollywood types, etc. And if a few white protestants are caught up in the violence that’s a small price to pay. Trump’s timing is synchronized with the start of the school year – all the better to add to the panic.
Trump keeps saying that “violence is at an all time high”, when the truth is that violent crimes are at a much lower level than 25 years ago. He wants to change that. His intent is to provoke more violence so as to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. Expect more deranged school killings, more white supremacy-based mass-killings, more racist hatred, and more American carnage. Maximizing the availability of guns is of course central to this goal. With Fox News and the NRA fanning the flames, more violence equals more fear which creates more violence.
Violence and fear are both helpful for Donald Trump. They strengthen those in positions of power, embolden his lawless friends, and keep his enemies weak and powerless. Violence will spread to 2020 election events in unprecedented numbers. He hopes to disenfranchise those that his violent followers have targeted. His ideal scenario is to create so much fear that millions of his opponents are unwilling to vote – thereby handing him and the GOP the election in 2020.
If that doesn’t appear to be working, he has a backup plan. More about that in Part 2.
