It wasn’t too long ago that I read Facebook comments from a Donald Trump supporter stating that news reporters (along with members of the Democratic National Committee) should be executed for treason.
No, I am not claiming that this individual is representative of all Trump supporters. But he certainly wasn’t contradicted by any of his peers that day, including those who (to me) seemed more reasonable. And this person isn’t alone in his desire to see people dead.
Calling news reporters an “enemy of the American people” is stupid and dangerous. It is a variation of “kill the messenger” that might also kill our key constitutional freedoms — along with some innocent people holding cameras and microphones.
