India Knight, a British journalist who pens a column for the Sunday Times and has called President Trump a "moron" and an "arse," has now called for his assassination.
In a hastily-deleted tweet, the liberal pundit said this: "The assassination is taking such a long time."
Now, we won't even get in to what would have happened if a conservative had called for President Obama's assassination. We already know how that would have gone. But ponder this: Why haven't you read this anywhere else? Why isn't this all over the news?
Here's why. After Knight posted the offensive (and perhaps criminal) tweet, she said she was just joking. Get it? Ha ha, someone should kill the president, ha ha ha! And plenty of people went, "Yeah, it's fine."
Emma Jobling tweeted to Knight: "Sometimes a gallows sense of humour is the only thing keeping a person sane. Be kind to yourself." Others also offered words of support, even encouragement.
But quite a few Twitterers took Knight to task. "Wow. You have a different opinion than someone so wish them dead? What a horrible person you are," wrote "Aidan." "If the only way to get your way, involves murder, you might be a psychopath," "Existino" tweeted at her.
Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet nailed her with his tweet after she deleted her call for Trump's assassination. "No, you can't call for heads of state to be assassinated and then flee to your "just a joke" safe space when you get called out." His tweet prompted her to write: "Right. I have deleted the offending tweet, which was a joke in very bad taste, and which I unreservedly apologise for."
The bruised and battered Left, which got crushed at the polls in November, is rapidly turning violent. A Trump supporter was knocked unconscious at an airport protest on Sunday, and Sunday night, an actor, David Harbour, called for liberals to "punch some people in the face."
“As we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies; we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home; we will get past the lies, we will hunt monsters. And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the weak, the disenfranchised and the marginalized!" Harbour yelled at the Screen Actors Guild awards in Los Angeles.
But don't look for these stories on ABC or NBC or CNN -- you won't find them. They just don't fit the narrative.
