Donald Trump and Stochastic Terrorism

stochastic terrorism

noun

The public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act, which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted:
The lone-wolf attack was apparently influenced by the rhetoric of stochastic terrorism.



“If (Hillary Clinton) gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know." -Donald Trump, August 2016


Ms. Clinton was under Secret Service protection when Trump said this. The agency should have investigated and arrested him right then for making a terroristic threat to a presidential candidate. Instead, Trump now has the largest megaphone in the world to incite violence toward those who he hates.

For Speaker Pelosi and the House of Representatives, it is not, nor should it be, a question of political strategy. For the basic safety of the American people, Trump must be impeached, now. And all major news outlets have a moral responsibility to no longer cover and disseminate the hate he spews.

'The president's insane': book by CNN's Jim Acosta charts Trump war on press

Acosta’s book, subtitled A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America, will be published on 11 June. The Guardian obtained a copy.

True to the style of Washington political reporting often complained about by Trump, Acosta mostly uses unnamed sources, many of whom are said to have spoken over social drinks. They are often blunt in their assessment of their boss. A “senior White House official” tells Acosta: “The president’s insane.”

We've known this, but it does beg the question: What kind of people willingly work for a man who is out of his mind?
