Why Trump’s ‘Second Amendment’ Comment Hit a Nerve

This assertion prompted mass shock and outrage in the media, with any number of politicians—including the Hillary Clinton campaign—and other talking heads accusing the Republican presidential candidate of inciting violence and calling for an assassination attempt on Clinton.  Trump went on to say he meant that Second Amendment supporters, including the NRA, could make a difference by coming out in large numbers and voting for him in November.

All mudslinging aside, there may be another explanation behind the unprecedented outrage prompted by Trump’s comment.

He touched on the one option—the one that must never be named—that is proven to work against tyrants, including the leftist crybully variety: revolution.

      Actually it was blatant lying by the media. Anyone thinking the media do not do this, should recall the total lie about Harper desecrating a communion host in N.B. Invented from start to finish.

    Trump is leading a revolution in perception and understanding.

    If the leftistas want to ratchet it up into the corporeal realm then so be it.

    Said Jefferson, “A revolution is like a thunderstorm. It clears the air.”

    What a state we’re in when black thugs can control the discourse and actually claim the moral high ground…..all with the connivance of a free press..

    …..That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. …..

      Pose this scenario to a leftist: “Let’s assume the worst accusations against Trump are 100% accurate, that he intends to ethnically cleanse America and round up progressives and stick them in camps. And come November, he wins. A month after formal inauguration, the purge is well underway, he’s dissolved the Congress, the Senate and the Supreme Court, and has declared himself God Emperor of America For Life. Trump’s brownshirts are coming down the street for you and your family. What do you do now? Would you, hypothetically speaking, consider taking up arms to resist a tyrannical government?”
