On Friday, the Gateway Pundit said that the social media site Twitter is allowing a hashtag advocating the death of President-elect Donald J. Trump. A search for the hashtag, #AssassinateTrump, finds reaction from both sides of the political aisle, with liberals using it to advocate murder while Trump supporters expressed outrage.

“Why bother rioting when so many Americans have guns. Wait for one of his public speaches, (sic) snipe him,” one person tweeted Thursday.
And it seems the hashtag has been around for quite a while:

Why isn't #AssassinateTrump trending? Lol

But now that Trump has won the election, many are demanding action:
If you see something, say something. #AssassinateTrump activity should be screenshotted and reported accordingly. Don't assume it's in jest.

Everybody tweeting #AssassinateTrump should be ashamed of themselves. If you can wish death upon somebody, you're just as hateful.

If you think that #assassinatetrump is a legit idea then you are no better than isis. Killing of humans and destruction of property is wrong

It’s not just wrong, it’s illegal. But that has never stopped liberals who think it’s perfectly okay to advocate murdering conservatives and Republicans.
Some expressed anger that Twitter would even allow such a hashtag to exist:

Many thanks to all haters who have used the #AssassinateTrump hashtag… you are helping us and Federal agencies compile targeting lists.

#AssassinateTrump threats are federal law violations. Twitter is an accessory to this criminal action. There will be consequences/enalties.

Right — like Clinton faced consequences for having a homebrew server and placing our national security at risk…
What makes this worse is the fact that unhinged liberals have actually used the social media platform to advocate the murder of Trump and his supporters.
The question now is: Will Twitter do the right thing and dump the hashtag? Or will it continue to let liberals use it to call for Trump’s murder?
- Left-wing Guardian writer calls for assassination of Donald Trump
- Liberal thugs BEAT man’s dog over Donald Trump
- Message of anti-Trump hate at Univ. of Michigan: ‘Kill ’em all’
- Boston graffiti: ‘Kill your local Trump supporter’
- Trump-hater to CNN: ‘People have to die’ — Video
