Threats against President Trump from celebrities with large followings:
Among the most troubesome social media threats, and insinuations of violence against President Trump are those from the media, celebrities and others with large audiences.
While they are “protected” by “freedom of the press” and can say their words are “art”, etc., the message they send is unambiguous and and leads to an increasingly volitile environment where it’s only a matter a time until one of their “followers” or “fans” pull the trigger for them.
Yes, they will have deniable plausibility to fall back on, but their words and “suggestions” will leave them complicit in the fullest.
Threats against President Trump where the word “assassinate”, “kill”, or “shot” is used:
What most see as “typical posts” in this partisan day of social media we live in, others see clear warning signs, like the one below from the Alexandria, VA shooter, James Hodgkinson on 6/14/17.
Threats against President Trump insinuating the use of violence
This group of post, and people, don’t come out and directly say to assassinate President Trump, they just imply doing so. A much more twisted and indirect way of dog whistling to those unstable enough to do so.
Threats against other GOP officials
It’s not just President Trump that is facing routine and sinister death threats in this enviornment, it’s also his wife, 11 year old son, family, and fellow GOP lawmakers who seem to be in imminent danger, as demonstrated earlier this week with the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise.
