The Hoveround and Diabetes Troops reporting for duty!
“This cannot go unpunished,” one member of the rabidly pro-Trump message board The Donald wrote on Thursday night. “The DA needs to pay dearly.” “None of this will stop unless there is blood in the streets,” another poster wrote. On platforms like The Donald, where all five of the top pinned posts on the homepage on Thursday night related to Trump’s indictment, commenters openly called for violence that was largely racist in nature.
Under a post with a photo of Bragg captioned “FAT PIECE OF SHIT!” another user commented: “There once was a time when he would have been lynched for much less.” “The whole trans terrorist thing must have been polling badly so they decided to indict Trump based on the testimony of a lying jew and lying whore,” one influential neo-Nazi account on Telegram wrote, alongside an AI-generated image of a tattooed, topless Trump in a prison yard.
Just remember. Yes, we can make fun of the crazies. But because they are, in fact, crazy, that makes them dangerous. The ones who are not certifiably crazy but may be very angry “true believers” are even more dangerous. So we ask everyone to be diligent in watching for your safety for the next week.
