“Republican congressman and Air Force veteran Adam Kinzinger slammed President Donald Trump for suggesting that his impeachment could lead to a ‘Civil War.’
‘If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal,’ Trump tweeted on Sunday, quoting Robert Jeffress, an evangelical pastor and loyal Trump supporter who appeared on ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.’
The suggestion of a civil war was met with widespread backlash — even from Trump’s own party, including Kinzinger, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
‘I have visited nations ravaged by civil war,’ the Illinois lawmaker tweeted. ‘I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant.'”
Donald Trump’s default mode in dealing with critics, whether it’s protesters at his campaign rallies or Democratic opponents, is to employ violent rhetoric.
This is dangerous because many of the stable genius’s followers are as mentally unstable as their fearless leader. When Trump demonizes Latino immigrants as invaders, whistle-blowers as spies and Democrats as traitors, he is inciting violence, after all his jingoistic sycophants will reason “shouldn’t invaders, spies and traitors be shot?”
Trump aka Cadet Bone Spurs doesn’t hesitate to incite violence against his critics, he’s surrounded by Secret Service Agents and he has no empathy for private citizens who are at the mercy of his bloodthirsty followers.
Republican leaders twist themselves into pretzels when trying to rationalize Trump’s inexcusable incitements to violence such as his suggestion that “impeachment could lead to Civil War.”
Republican congressman and Air Force veteran Adam Kinzinger is not one of this spineless Republicans, he condemned Trump’s statement in no uncertain terms, calling it “beyond repugnant.”
Republican leaders who put their party and their careers ahead of the rule of law and common decency and either ignore or try to justify Trump’s violent rhetoric are beyond repugnant.
