[Ed. – Interesting to note that, as these incidents mount up, the MSM are making less of an effort to spin the headlines as if the Trump supporters somehow incited the attacks. They’re being clearer now than they were even 2-3 weeks ago that it’s Trump supporters being attacked. Earlier, the headlines were more likely to be vague, and to imply only that some sort of violence had occurred because of Trump, without clarifying who attacked whom. Now they’re just writing direct, declarative headlines. I don’t think this is because the MSM are now in sympathy with Trump or his supporters. It looks instead like their priority at this point is to scare Trump supporters.]
