‘Dilbert’ cartoonist Scott Adams thinks he’ll be assassinated if he doesn’t endorse Clinton

Published

on

Cartoonist Scott Adams is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president because he fears he’ll be murdered by the Democratic frontrunner’s supporters if he doesn’t.

It’s a convoluted theory, and appears to be based on Adams’ abiding interest in hypnosis, persuasion and other forms of mind control.

“This past week we saw Clinton pair the idea of President Trump with nuclear disaster, racism, Hitler, the Holocaust, and whatever else makes you tremble in fear,” Adams wrote on his personal blog.

Adams, who last week said he realized Donald Trump was no “crazy clown” but was actually a master of persuasion, said Clinton’s new line of attack would personally, specifically and certainly imperil him in a racist eruption against white people.

“The only downside I can see to the new approach is that it is likely to trigger a race war in the United States,” Adams said. “And I would be a top-ten assassination target in that scenario because once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him. And obviously it would be okay to kill anyone who actively supports a genocidal dictator, including anyone who wrote about his persuasion skills in positive terms.”

It’s not clear how many readers Adams’ blog actually has — or how many he thinks it has — but the syndicated cartoonist, author and occasional talk show guest fears violent reprisals for his not entirely negative appraisal of Trump’s campaign skills if Clinton loses.

“About a quarter of the country will think it is morally justified to assassinate their own leader,” Adams warned. “I too would feel that way if an actual Hitler came to power in this country. I would join the resistance and try to take out the Hitler-like leader. You should do the same. No one wants an actual President Hitler.”

“So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety,” Adams said. “Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.”

Published

Looting is the word of the day, on the lips of every newscaster, the president, and elected officials across the country. And, indeed, looting is a major problem in America.

In 1981, when Ronald Reagan ended the New Deal era, crushed labor unions, and massively cut the top personal and corporate tax rates, he kicked off the most massive and widespread looting of America since the 1920s.

Working people all across the nation have seen over $7 trillion of their wealth looted by the top 1 percent just in the past two decades, reducing them from the middle class to the working poor.

Trump called out by Wall Street Journal for plan to send troops after protesters and risking ‘bloodshed’

Published

on

The editors of the conservative Wall Street Journal strongly cautioned Donald Trump to refrain from putting members of the military on the streets of the United States because it would only inflame a country already being torn apart by battles between George Floyd protesters and the police.

With the president threatening to invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807, which would allow him to send in the troops to restore order, the Journal's editors implored Trump to step on the brakes and not make matters worse.
