King referred to the failed 1859 effort by abolitionist John Brown.  Brown hoped to spark a slave rebellion, but was charged with treason and hanged.

King’s tweet triggered a number of leftist hatemongers.


According to the PJMedia article:

“Occupy” protesters have been camping outside an ICE office in Portland, Oregon, leading the facility to temporarily shut down.  The occupiers say that they won’t leave until the Trump administration revokes its “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

Since Sunday the agitators, whose numbers are increasing, have been engaged in activities such as blocking the entrance to the building…

They also shouted at people as they drove by, blocked the road, heckled ICE employees and blocked employees from leaving work.  They also tore down the U.S. flag and replaced it with one that read, “Refugees Welcome.”


King’s warning also comes on the heels of Maxine Waters’ call to harass and attack members of the Trump administration.

In recent days and weeks, unhinged leftists have broken all the norms of civilized society thanks to mostly fake and dishonest reporting by the so-called mainstream media.  Rush Limbaugh has warned that hysterical media reporting will end up getting someone killed and Townhall’s Kurt Schlichter warned that the lefts’ rhetoric will only end in violence.

One can’t help but wonder: Do liberals really want a second bloody civil war over Trump?  It sure looks like it.
