The Huffington Post came out with a piece published on Sunday by contributor Jason Fuller that shockingly and tastelessly called for the “execution” no less of President Donald Trump.
Fuller’s piece also used rhetoric and imagery that were crude and cheap. Fuller bluntly said in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted- if convicted in a court of law- executed.” He also went even further with his vicious attacks and insisted that “impeachment isn’t enough to drain the swamp”, and the only ultimate punishment that will satisfy him “to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.” is Trump’s execution.
Fuller also said that Trump won’t be by his lonesome as execution is not only reserved for him, but should also be carried out to “everyone assisting in his agenda. He specified the persons “ in cahoots” with Trump as Republican Representatives Mitch McConnel and Paul Ryan, and White House strategist Steve Bannon. Fuller concluded that “all must face justice” by being tried, convicted and ultimately executed for treason.
Such call for blood and vendetta comes from a man who sees himself as “critical” of “bullying and extremism.” Fuller liberally uses the term “execution” twice and “ultimate punishment” as euphemism for execution twice also. For Fuller, it was also as “simple” as claiming that those who disagree with him have all committed treason.
In view of the shocking shooting of Majority Whip Steve Scalise, two Capitol Hill police officers, a congressional staffer and a lobbyist, concerns about “over-the-top political rhetoric” are at an all- time high.
Curiously, Fuller’s piece has disappeared from The Huffington Post platform and is no longer available on the site where he played all the multiple roles of judhge, jury and executioner.
