Trump is guilty of stochastic terrorism, The lone-wolf attack was apparently influenced by the rhetoric of stochastic terrorism.



stochastic terrorism

[stuh-kas-tik ter-uh-riz-uh m]

noun

the public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act,which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted:

Trump has to know that what he says gives license to the nut case out there who will act out his violent fantasy.  Trump refuses to condemn white supremacist who perpetuate hate crimes against the other, brown people, Jews, Muslims.  Of course he was quick to identify Muslims in an act of terror in California.  
Why won't he call them out? Because they are his supporters.  He is the poster boy for white extremists, American Nazis and every right wing hate group out there. I wouldn't be surprised if he was made honorary grand wizard of the KKK.
Trump must bear responsibility for the mass killing in New Zealand, Philadelphia, Charleston church shooting and other violent acts committed by the people he incites to acts of violence, it is as if he loaded the gun and pulled the trigger himself.

The Madness of Trump

Cicero said it best when he said, "The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience, the stupid by necessity, and the brutes by instinct".  This is the era of the madness of Trump.  Reasonable people can disagree and do so with passion, but the lies and disingenuous of the Trump administration is a disaster.  
Trump's attack on the free press is destructive to American Democracy.  While the free press can be manipulated at times and lie like Fox and Breitbart do, it remains the guardian of Democracy.  It is there to shine the light of day on those wishing to hide their dirty deeds in the darkness of conspiracy and special interest.  
His policies are a disaster with our allies, his support of dictators and enemies a powerful and potential threat to all Americans and the rest of the world. The sooner he is out of office the better for our country.  
This may be the most dangerous time for America.  Trump's America is a meaner, stupider and morally more corrupt America than we have seen since before the American civil war. He has given license to racism, misogyny, religious bigotry and intolerance of every kind. We need to end the madness of Trump.
