Trump’s Vague Barbarism
Trump’s latest self-exposure:
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
He could have ended that last sentence “the Second Amendment people could call their senators and demand obstruction”. He could also have ended that sentence “the Second Amendment people could assassinate the President and her judges”. The first is clearly civilized, the second is clearly barbaric. But he said neither; he didn’t even finish the sentence.
So he was vaguely thuggish, and vaguely insurrectionist, and vaguely treasonous. And I DON’T LIKE VAGUENESS!
I demand that Trump be clear in his barbarism. He should tell us what he really thinks, assuming that he thinks at all.
