Every high-profile political figure always has to fear that an assassination attempt may be on the horizon. Human nature and technological advancements have made it so easy to kill people, that the unfortunate reality of life is that if you are a controversial figure, you constantly have to be looking over your shoulder. Of course, there are few people in the world who are more controversial than President-elect Donald J. Trump.
As expected, a lot of claims were made that if Trump were elected, leftists from all over would try to assassinate him. While many of these could easily be passed off as sick jokes, others are not so easily brushed aside. It was recently reported that a site on the dark web has been raising money to fund an assassination attempt on President-elect Trump, which is most definitely something to be concerned about.
Anthony Cuthbertson of Newsweek reports, “Within the source code of the website, there is a message left by someone claiming to be a hacker who has uncovered the identity of the person who set up the crowdfunding campaign. The message states that the site is hosted by a Canadian citizen who is ‘a little scammer.’ Newsweek tried to contact the creator of the site via the administrator email address published on the website but there was no reply at the time of publication.”
For a group of people that were recently chanting “Love trumps hate,” and going on and on about how tolerant they are of different belief systems, they sure do seem to want to murder everyone who threatens to disrupt their liberal ideologies. The radical side of the Regressive Left is something that should be looked into more than it is. The mainstream media only considers the alt-right to be a threat, but they are not nearly as dangerous as those who are threatening to murder the next leader of the free world.
It’s time for the American people to come together and accept the fact that Donald J. Trump is going to be the next president of the United States. Instead of finding reasons not to support him or his presidency, or even going so far as to threaten his life, people should try to find the positives here. If nothing else, they should celebrate the fact that the establishment has been overthrown in a way that nobody expected it to be – and that alone is a cause for celebration.
