Members of The Young Turks discuss Trump supporter Dan Bowman explaining Hillary Clinton assassination plans to WSJ reporter.
Transcription of the video above (from 10/17/2016).
|Dan Bowman: I feel like Hillary needs to be taken out. If she gets in the government I do everything in my power to take her out of power. Which, if I have to be a patriot, I will.|
WSJ Reporter: Is that a physical threat?
Dan Bowman: I don't know, is it? (The Independant article by Feliks Garcia. 10/17/2016).
I would say yes. "If I have to be a patriot, I will" is code for him saying he will attempt an assassination and give his life in order to "take out" a president Hillary Clinton. Exactly what Trump called for! (DSB #52).
YouTube Video Description: At a rally in NC, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Second Amendment supporters may be able to figure out a way to stop Hillary Clinton from picking federal judges as president. It wasn't clear what Trump meant. (Published on Aug 9, 2016).
Regarding whoever posted this to YouTube saying "it wasn't clear what Trump meant"... IMO it was very clear. It was crystal clear to people like Dan Bowman. Give me a break, we all (or at least most of us) know the coded language of the far Right! A "patriot" is someone who dreams of revolution to get the government they want, and "2nd amendment remedies" is a call to assassinate Democrats/politicians you disagree with.
