This is one of the most barbaric things I’ve ever seen. Quite frankly, I don’t even know if Kathy Griffin holding Trump’s decapitated head is more or less violent than this entire video, irrespective of which side of the aisle you’re on.
“In 2017, President Trump took flak for tweeting a fake video that depicted him beating up the CNN logo. Now, some supporters have created a far more violent fake video, one that depicts Trump massacring or otherwise attacking members of the media and other critics—including John McCain, Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Rosie O’Donnell, reports the New York Times.”
The organization itself, whether it was associated in the creation of the video or not, has openly stated that it strongly opposes violence and actually discussed said opposition during the conference.
“It was shown at a conference at Trump’s Doral Miami resort last week and is an edited clip from a 2014 dark comedy, Kingsman: The Secret Service.Trump pulls out a gun in the “Church of Fake News” and shoots people who have the logos of news organizations for heads. He also beats and stabs people, and drives a stake into a head that is the CNN logo. The video is drawing widespread condemnation, including from the group behind the conference, American Priority.”

However, let’s talk about another interesting point, shall we?
I could count on one hand how often I’ve agreed with the left and still have fingers left over but they are outraged by this video due to its violence and I totally see why. I’m left to wonder – is it because it’s Trump committing the violence against people they hold a shrine for? Or is it truly for the moral grounds surrounding the concept of violence?
I’m not going to say too much, nor am I condoning this video by any means. But I’m still waiting for CNN (or any Democrat, for that matter) to openly condemn ANTIFA. Or the violence of Trump supporters at Berkley, or in Minnesota, his inauguration, or Portland, or the violence that takes place against Trump supporters for just being Trump supporters… (I could go on, but I think you get the idea).
I wonder what the reaction would be had the main character shown a whistleblower meme for a face… or perhaps Biden… and if the depicted victims were pictures of those within the Trump Administration …but I digress.
Feel free to take a gander, yourself –
