Let’s all gather around for a moment, so I can tell you a story.
A couple years back, a fundamentalist group of Christians posted videos of them being attacked by a group of Muslims in America. It painted a pretty grim picture, suggesting that maybe the right-wing elements in this country are right about the dangers of Islam in America.
However, the entire event happened in Dearborn. MI. As a Michigan resident, something seemed off to me. For the most part, they integrated fairly well into American culture. While I still felt the violence of the counter-protestors was uncalled for, I knew there was something missing. This group of so-called Christians weren’t telling the whole story.
A couple days later, videos began to surface proving me right. These “Christians” came with signs, saying that their prophet was a pedophile burning in hell, and they carried around an actual severed pig’s head that they were shoving in the faces of the people who where there, taunting them.
Again, while it doesn’t justify the use of violence, it does make it a little bit harder to sympathize with the “poor victimized Christians”, since they got the response they were fishing for it the first place.
What does this have to do with this? Well, nothing is black and white. And its highly unlikely that some Trump supporters didn’t deliberately egg on some of the protestors, no pun intended. And this works wonders for the Trump campaign; let’s make out people against Trump to be violent and dangerous… Trump will bring law and order to an out of control America.
It’s politics, 101.
