When it comes to Donald Trump, Obama-appointed judges are inventing new legal standards unrelated to the Constitution, statutes, cases, or even facts.
Progressives are very excited that a federal judge in Kentucky has held that Trump can be sued for inciting violence. Perfectly illustrating this excitement is a WaPo analysis carrying the headline, “A judge rules Trump may have incited violence … and Trump again has his own mouth to blame.”
At this point, of course, you may be wondering what words Trump used to madden the mob. Perhaps he said, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl.” Sorry. My bad. That was Obama.
Or maybe he said that he was actively looking for “whose ass to kick.” Nope. Another mistake on my part. That was also Obama.
I distinctly remember a political type analogizing the maddened marches in January and the mob attacks in February to the Civil Rights movement, “They’ve marched. They’ve bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.” That sounds a bit like a call to blood and riot, but it was Loretta Lynch who said it, not Donald Trump.
What Donald Trump actually said was “Get him the Hell out of here. Get him out of here. Throw him out,” in response to protesters who were disrupting a rally:
Classy? Probably not. Incitement to violence? I doubt it. In fact, the only thing we know for certain about “incitements to violence” at Trump rallies is that the Democrat party deliberately planted bird doggers whose goal was to foment violence. (It would not surprise me to learn that those same people, after the election, became “antifa” freelancers, spreading out to places such as UC Berkeley or Middlebury College to use violence against free speech.)
