The tendency of the media has been, however, to blame the rise of Donald Trump for this violence. They blame Trump’s rhetoric for eliciting violent response from the left – a pure example of “she was wearing a short skirt, so the rape was inevitable” logic. To make that logic perfectly clear, Tuscon sportscaster Jacob Rascon Paul Cicala tweeted, “Hey brother…you aren’t reporting that she was taunting protesters moments before pointing to her Trump shirt etc. Please be fair…not ok my friendthose protesters are definitely wrong. But, she has to be careful egging them on or she sets herself up for that.” Vox editor Emmett Rensin tweeted, “Advice: If Trump comes to your town, start a riot.” He then added, “Listen, if Trump is Hitler then you’ve got no business condemning rioters. If he isn’t, you’ve got no businesses pretending normal is better.” The Mayor of San Jose, Democrat Sam Liccardo, blamed Trump directly: “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign.” It is worth noting that there were many reports of San Jose police standing down as Trump supporters were attacked.
This is wildly dishonest. It’s actually despicable.
