Rick Klein, the political director for far-left ABC News, is openly calling for a “cleansing” of Trump supporters.
In a tweet published Thursday, one day after protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol and an unarmed woman was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer, Klein appeared to deliberately wield Stalinist eliminationist rhetoric as a means to increase tensions and divisions even more.
“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else,” he tweeted, while linking to an article he wrote filled with the same “cleansing” threat, as well as a huge pile of misinformation:
Cleansing the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.
Back in June, President Donald Trump tweeted that he wanted anyone who “vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property” to face punishment up to “10 years in prison.”
Of course, then he was threatening those in the streets protesting police violence and racial inequities with whom he disagreed.
While Klein accuses the Trump supporters he wants to see “cleansed” of being driven by conspiracy theories, nowhere does he mention that the left-wing terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter are driven by conspiracy theories involving “systemic racism,” a ton of hate crime hoaxes, and the shooting deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.
