Village February out today, Friday. Cover and editorial: why taking #Trump out would be unethical
n Irish magazine has taken provocation to an entirely new level with a controversial cover shot of U.S. President Donald Trump’s head in the cross-hairs of a supposed assassin.
Of course, they aren’t really calling for Trump’s actual assassination. They just want to chat about it for a bit – you know, analyze the ethical philosophies involved.
Like civilized folk.
In a piece that often sounds like something out of The Huffington Post, the Trump-hate starts from the beginning paragraph that describes the American president as “a purveyor of hatred, a contrarian: anti-liberal, anti-democratic and hostile to a free press, an anti-environmental, corruptible bully; a liar, a misogynist groper and a boor” who “holds the reins of power in the most powerful country in the world. He holds the nuclear codes, he can start wars, he can ensure nothing is done about climate change, so that civilisation itself is threatened.”
I mean, wow, with rhetoric like that surely no weak-minded leftist with an itchy finger and a thirst for fame would start comparing Trump to other “civilisation threateners” like Adolph Hitler, and themselves to Claus von Stauffenberg.
That would be crazy.
Despite the fact that the author, who I would lay down money betting is NOT a Christian, conjures up a St. Thomas Aquinas quote next – “He who kills a tyrant (i.e. a usurper) to free his country is praised and rewarded.” – that doesn’t necessarily mean they want anything bad to happen to Trump.
Feck off you Irish Commies! I am an American and for the first time in my life I am embarrassed to say I come from Irish stock! Mr. Trump is my President, duly elected and sworn in on a Christian bible! Please stop disparaging him. You have enough trouble in your own country and the EU. Mind your own business!
Well stated, Anna - this is DEFINITELY the season of crazies, and they're coming out of the rat holes to eff up the whole damn society!!
Time to fire, lock up these kinds of people. This our President of the United States of America. He should be protected, respected, even if they don't like him. We honor, respect and stand loyal to our new President Donald Trump. Time for action now. There should be consequences for disgracing, dishonoring, and threatening our President Trump. We have not had a real President in 8 years and finally we have a President who knows, who loves America and the American People, who has our safety, security at heart. We must pray and stand with President Donald Trump now!!!!!!!!!
I feel the same way!
Remember the blood curdling screams from the liberal progressive democrat sycophants when Sarah Palin had identified certain areas on a map with a red circle???
I do . . . . but THAT is no where near as deadly as this treasonous printed roadmap to anarchy.
WE the PEOPLE have to recognize the point of explosion before it ignites.
Are we there yet???
What's the next gradient?
How far do we let this "resistance" go before we take action?
In my mind we're beyond the point we need to be to protect our sovereign nation.
We're going to have to get out from behind the computer and take our places at church, courthouse, shopping malls, and public schools and universities.
We're going to have to face our enemy ,we're going to have to engage our enemy, we're going to have to win.
I agree with you, Philip. There is no way that Trump can do anything at the local level, nor at the state level unless it has to do with legal arrests for those supporting sanctuary cities, or with universities.
We have our locales as our own place to stand up for our country and our President.
Need to be Locked up for inciting a terrorist attack
Never did I ever see anything like this. They are not even hiding anymore. Commies trying
to take over America. That is what HOLLYweird and the demos are ! I remember when
they used to throw commies out of the country, not put them in???!!!
Hate is a terrible thing, Obama was a rotten President and no one said a word, Trump is working hard to correct all of the damage Obama did and all he gets is threats and riots when there should be cheering, the unemployed will find work with Trump and they will be ungrateful because they are used to the worthless Obama policy of free stuff to keep them happy where they don't have to work for anything,President Trump deserves our support and he is our President and if you don't like it go to CUBA, they have a nice filthy jail cell for you,the rats are free if you can catch one, if not you will have no dinner.
SHAMELESS DOUBLE STANDARD. There would be an outrage if this had been done by our side. The communist movement has captured the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Education, Media, and even some members of the Republican and Independent parties.
That's absolutely despicable, but not at all surprising coming from the low-life Far-Left crowd. My cover design is much more satisfying and the recipient is truly more deserving. I'm sure your best guess and imaginations would be spot on. Someday, I'll share it with everyone.
