Trump continuing to foment violence and animus against black people. He ignores right wing extremists who have actually killed people. White right wing extremists are heroes, BLM are terrorists. Doesn't matter if people like Kyle Rittenhouse kill people on the streets. It doesn't matter if his people caravan style roll into town shooting paintballs at protestors.

Trump condones violence yet complains and lumps all BLM supporters into rioters, looters, Antifa and terrorists.

When Elizabeth Neumann was a Trump-appointed official at the Department of Homeland Security, she served as assistant secretary for threat prevention and security policy. Her focus, as her title suggested, was focused on identifying possible domestic security threats.

What Neumann discovered, however, was that it was effectively impossible to convince Donald Trump to take seriously the threat posed by violent right-wing extremists. The president, the then-leading official at DHS came to realize, simply wouldn't listen. (Neumann, who voted for Trump in 2016, publicly endorsed Joe Biden last week.)
It appears, however, that Team Trump will take seriously the possibility of a perceived domestic security threat, just so long as it fits into the White House's ideological predispositions.

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf stated that the Justice Department is looking into arresting leaders of Black Lives Matter (BLM) amid protests over the shooting of Jacob Blake by police officer Rusten Sheskey.

Remember when conservatives made up a lie about the IRS targeting right wing groups and this was thought of as Obama becoming a tyrant? Surely these same conservatives are equally outraged about this.

Right?....... right?

This is something Trump has been doing for awhile now, he is framing people with political differences as him as being enemies in a warlike frame of reference. It is always good when your people kill the enemy, and we always hate the enemy for replying in kind.
