Violent words beget violent action

Violent rhetoric can lead to actual violence. We have seen homegrown Jihadists radicalised by violent words and images on the internet and now we are seeing violent words and images promoted by so-called Liberals in America. Breitbart walks us down memory lane and reminds us of all the death threats and violent images that have been used since Donald Trump ran for President. Wednesday’s shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, officers, and others at a congressional baseball practice has lead to fear that an attempt will be made on Trump’s life.

… the level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-famous shock “beheading” photograph to Shakespeare in the Park’s not-at-all-subtle “assassination” of Trump on a stage in New York City’s Central Park.

Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP lawmakers for at least the past 18 months.

Below are 15 examples of celebrities who have used pointed, violent rhetoric to attack the president and other Republicans.
