Sigh. Every story has to be bigger, better, and stronger. But have no doubt, Trump has a reason for exaggerating the crime occurring in big cities. Personally, I believe that if Trump finds himself in the Oval Office again, the first thing he’ll do is pardon himself of all crimes ever. (And he won’t appear in New York or Georgia). The second thing he will do is “temporarily” institute martial law until “we’ve eliminated crime and secured the border.” Remember, all fascism starts out as “temporary.”
He gave a speech today at the NRA that would operate as justification for his plans:
You see these gangs of hundreds of young, usually young people go and attack a department store, department stores in San Francisco and Los Angeles and Chicago, and they run in by the hundreds and they’re running out carrying refrigerators and carrying air conditioners and big stuff. Big little everything.
Fur coats, not fur coats, everything they’re carrying. They empty out the stores. And we, our police are incredible, but they’re not allowed to do their job. They want to do their job so badly.
They’re standing there, they’re shaking. They want to do their job. It’d be so easy to do, but they’re not allowed to do their job because of these radical lunatics, who think they’re doing the right thing.
I don’t even think they do think they’re doing the right thing. The politically incorrect truth that no one on the left wants to admit is that violent crime is rarely committed by illegal gun owners. It is committed by a brutal class of hardened repeat criminals. That’s who’s doing it. In San Francisco.
I guarantee he’s sending the federalized National Guard into the nation’s biggest cities when he declares martial law.
