Disclaimer: I am NOT advocating this.
I overheard some people wondering why someone hasn’t done the deed against either Trump or Republican senators like McConnell or Ryan. People mutter about it —but are terrified to even put that into words online or speak it over the phone. There is a sense that democracy is doomed so people should take matters into their own hands, etc. And then when yet another mass shooting happens I hear people saying “Why aren’t they shooting the right people, instead of innocents?”
It got me thinking: Have there been close/credible assassination attempts against the president that we don’t hear about? Or are people so docile, passive and hopeless that radicals wouldn’t even try? Or radicals don’t even exist. You would think with all the suicidals, depressives and loonies out there someone would try. I know there are the Antifas, but they seem like an anarchic mess. The days of the Weather Underground, Black Panthers, Red Army Faction, etc. are long over I guess. And the most of the people with the weapons are on the winning team now anyway (which is not a coincidence).
Again, I am NOT advocating any violence. Just a topic for contemplation.
