Tonight Trump’s supporters gather in Phoenix, Arizona to show their mindless adulation for the most incompetent president to ever sit in the Oval Office. To show that most Americans don’t – and never did – support Trump, counter-protestors are flocking to the event to publicly voice their opposition to Trump and his racist agenda.
The contentious event is a powder keg of emotions and simmering partisan hatred. As the crowd grows, it’s hard not to think back to the Charlottesville tragedy earlier this month, where a white supremacist terrorist murdered innocent counter-protester Heather Heyer.
Now, an Arizona local and Trump supporter has taken to Twitter to make a vile threat, once again ripping open the wound inflicted on the country by Heyer’s senseless murder. User Graham Carlise tweeted, then quickly removed, the following:
The disgusting threat can’t be taken back so cavalierly. Carlise is responsible for his words, and the hatred he has so carelessly chosen to pursue. While it’s possible he was making an unacceptable joke, there’s no way for anyone reading the tweet to be sure. At the very least, it could inspire other Trump supporters to acts of violence.
Twitter has already suspended Carlise’s account, but the damage is done.
