White British Immigrant Tries To Seize Gun, Kill Trump; GUARDIAN To Blame?

A young man has been charged with trying to kill Donald Trump. He’s apparently a white guy from Britain, visa unknown, who’s been thinking about killing Trump for a year.

    that simpering dickhead John Oliver has to take the blame for this.

      Guys I work with think Oliver is very funny.
      I tell them that he’s not.
      He has an agenda.
      He’s not an equal opportunity offender.
      Even before he’s gotten out of the gate he’s pissed off half his audience.

      • Yep. The British accent will only get you so far and our fascination with it because it makes people sound so much more “intelligent”. After a while you get past the accent and listen to what they’re actually saying — unfortunately there are a lot of pretty untalented dumb Brits in the American entertainment industry. Craig Ferguson is another example (although I guess he’s from Scotland).

          Hey, Craig Ferguson was the best late night host in a couple of generations.

          • I guess if you’re comparing him to when we were wandering in the desert with the likes of Conan for 40 years, I’d had to say that Ferguson was superb.

            Funny and adult dirty with a light touch.
            A Scots accent and the devil’s glint in eye.
            What more “cou ye ax fer”?

          Scottish is British. You are making the very common mistake of thinking thinking British is the same as English, when English is a subset of British, where British is English, Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh.

        To me it’s not even that he’s not an equal opportunity offender. His stuff has no real humour when examined, it’s just a blur of accent, silly voices, volume, exaggerated facial expressions, non-sequiturs, and bad analogies, delivered at such a high speed that it’s hard to analyse what the actual content is. Add in his viewers confirmation bias and desperation to find the next Jon Stewart.

          What viewers?

    This is why Trump needs to win.
    Only then can we even hope to weed out the instigators of this rot.
    I hope he sucks on a natural life sentence.

      The kid has some mental issues and suffers from some kind of autism. He was living out of his car. They should just deport him back to Britain. Not worth it to keep him over here. Just saying …

      • I was gonna say. I hope they give him a bowl of porridge or something. It looks like he’s been living on tea and crumpets and he could slip through jail bars by turning sideways.

        • Linda1000

          His mom should just come and collect him because it sounds like her snowflake warrior doesn’t manage well on his own.

          • Although I have no doubt that if he had succeeded in getting the gun, he would in fact have attempted to kill Trump. He went to a lot of trouble to get there — intent was obvious. He needs to be prosecuted for at least “something” even if they deport him at the end of the process.

          • Linda1000

            Maybe find some way to fine the UK, Cameron or his mother over this incident as the kid doesn’t have any money? 🙂 I think he would have tried to fire the gun but likely would have hit someone in the crowd. He had only fired nineteen bullets at a gun range in Vegas before attempting to steal the police officer’s gun and put his great “assassin plan” into play. Seems like he had some sort of “death wish” as he expected to be shot by police and his mother said he had attempted suicide in the past? Easier to just get him out of the U.S. and let him make new plans back in the UK. We already have enough of our own “crazies” on this side of the pond.

          • Brit Judge should prohibit him from engaging in any anti-Trump activism forever. And it should be a very public pronouncement as a message to the other “crazies” out there who are hyperventilating over Trump and need a bag put over their heads.

          • Linda1000

            I don’t think Britain has any conservative or pro-Trump judges, only pro-muslim ones. There are a lot of anti-Trump articles in the lefty British newspapers these days. Then of course, lots of Brits and the EU countries always think of big, bad Americans and gun violence. The people are so weird over there now and I can’t believe how they think these days. They are so anti-gun and at the same time in some countries they have guards or police armed to the max outside public buildings like court houses or museums for protection (Paris, Rome). Here, we only see that stuff when the Swat teams are deployed.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I was making the assumption that he wasn’t batshit insane, or any more insane than your average leftist.
        If he really is bonkers, then send him home in a straight jacket with a lifetime ban on U.S. re-entry.
        I’d be fine with that, if he’s really crazy.

        • Linda1000

          Yes, we don’t need anymore of Cameron’s insanity on this side of the pond.

    American courts do not look kindly on attempted murder.

  • Americadies

    Air drop the little prick back to Syria where scum like this belong. Maybe ha can convert to Islam or die trying.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Real terrorism doesn’t have a color or race is becoming a plague worldwide.

    • True, Left-wing terrorism is global. Not as savage as the Islamic brand at this point in history, although there’s plenty of precedence for the latter (e.g. 20th century Socialist revolutions — Nazism, Communism, etc.).

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        Nazism is a far-right ideology and you can check its other name National Bolshevism it shows it on the far-right of the political spectrum. Third Positionism is another tenet of Nazism by that notion because it is for scapegoating, anti-immigration and revolutionary nationalism something foreign to the right wing. The other name for it is clerical fascism. Remember that protectionism can transcend ideology but there are variants to everything. Many people that lack the knowledge of politics fail to realize that Nazis killed Communists, SDP members and even Christian Democrats before Hitler assumed total power.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        You also confuse revolutionary parties with democratic parties another misnomer from people that do not understand political variants which is how conservatives think. They believe all conservatism must be populist and not centrist. Another game and why political education must occur in schools so that people can make up their minds. This is just another conversation in conspiracy theories when Nazism as defined by Wikipedia and other sites and by political scientists are defined as far-right. Nazis are like the BNP in Britain and the Golden Dawn parties that no doubt the Blazingcatfur site knows nothing about and are definite anti-Zionist movements. Even protectionist parties existed worldwide prior to WW1. Movements change just like times do another obvious misnomer used by people who obviously know nothing about ideology such as yourself ricardojaime.

        • Thanks for your two responses, but I can’t make heads or tails of your point. The Nazis and the Communists were allies until the 1940’s — they’re both Socialist ideologies.

          If neo-Nazis in the West are illiterate and got sucked into believing that Nazism is “right-wing” that’s their problem. As far as I’m concerned neo-Nazis are dupes of the Socialist Left. Racism is rooted in Left Socialism, it doesn’t represent anything on the right even if they want to pretend that it does.
