A Twitter search for “kill Donald Trump” — or variations on that theme — are certain to produce a great deal of results at any time, but, WND’s Douglas Ernst said Tuesday, Trump has been targeted with a “slew of death threats” on the social media site after the GOP frontrunner proposed a ban on Muslim immigration.
“Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine,” Trump said in a statement. “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”
Here’s just a few we found. There’s more — many more:

The threats weren’t just limited to the candidate:

Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson added:
These comments again highlight the fact that, whatever you think of Trump, the notion that the “right-wing” has a monopoly on unhinged individuals who engage in violent rhetoric is a complete fallacy.
I’ve been saying that since February 2011, when I first opined that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. We saw this kind of rhetoric during the 2012 election when liberals routinely advocated murdering Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and everyone who supported them.
This isn’t the first time that unhinged liberals have called for Trump’s murder, and chances are, it won’t be the last. The question now is, will the GOP establishment and the liberal media continue to foment violence to the point that someone actually tries to take Trump out?
It’s enough to make one wonder: Do liberals REALLY want a second, bloody civil war?
