Does the Media Want Donald Trump Dead?
The front cover of Village Magazine, a left leaning Irish publication, depicts a photo of Donald Trump’s head in the crosshairs of a sniper with “Why Not” written across the bottom.The editor concludes it would be “unethical” to kill him and that no one should do it. UNETHICAL? How about immoral and evil? Does the media want him dead?
Even though the editor of the article claims that they meant just the opposite, that “the ethical and practical calculus says don’t do it,” there are just enough crazies out there to see the picture and get ideas in their mentally challenged heads.
And the article itself doesn’t help, in spite of the claims of the editor, Michael Smith.
The magazine’s stance is pretty much clear in the very first paragraph:
“Donald Trump is a purveyor of hatred, a contrarian: anti-liberal, anti-democratic and hostile to a free press, an anti-environmental, corruptible bully; a liar, a misogynist groper and a boor. He developed the political platform you would expect on the back of this persona. And as Village went to press at the beginning of February he appeared now to be implementing it. He holds the reins of power in the most powerful country in the world. He holds the nuclear codes, he can start wars, he can ensure nothing is done about climate change, so that civilisation itself is threatened…”
Then there is this part of the article:
“Around the time of Trump’s inauguration as US president, there was a spike in searches for odds on his assassination. Some punters were even asking bookmakers on Twitter for odds on Trump to be killed before the end of his term.
So perhaps the solution is tyrannicide. As he might say himself – “take him out”.
Tyrannicide has had support from various philosophers and theologians through the centuries, including the ancient Greeks and Romans, most notably Cicero; Catholics, most notably John of Salisbury (d. 1180); and Protestants, most notably, Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin.”
This is their definition of not calling for the death of President Trump?

This miserable degenerate rag could indeed get the President assassinated. This kind of so-called “journalism” is despicable. They claim the “why not” is an “explanation not a question,”
but that is most certainly not clear by the cover, and reflects the black hearts of the liberals in charge of the publication.
