An MSNBC contributor wrote Tuesday on Twitter that he hoped the Islamic State would bomb President Donald Trump’s property in Turkey.
Counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance was responding to a tweet of an image of Trump Tower Istanbul that was alleging the property was the reason Trump called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to congratulate him on his controversial referendum win over the weekend.
According to “Resistance” rules when someone is upset with something Trump says the natural reaction is wishing for death and destruction. Nance tweeted and then deleted this:
Accompanying a picture of Trump Tower Istanbul, Nance wrote, “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property.”
I’m not quite sure if Nance was going for humor here, but he sure as shit failed to be funny. It’s not a joke to encourage a terrorist organization to kill untold numbers of innocent people. It’s even less funny to do this just because you have a slight disagreement with someone over foreign policy as Nance has with Trump.
And the thing is, if ISIS were to take Nance up on his nomination, it wouldn’t strike a blow to Donald Trump like he hopes. Trump wouldn’t be there when a suicide bomb goes off and he has plenty of insurance that would cover whatever damage there was. The only thing that happens with Nance’s horrible wet dream is that dozens or hundreds of innocent people would be killed.
Nance actually wrote a book called Defeating ISIS: Who They Are, How They Fight, What They Believe. I haven’t read it, but his strategy appears to be even worse than Obama’s. Rather than doing nothing and hoping for the best, it is Nance’s plan to give ISIS targets based on his own twisted ideology.
What Nance really said with this tweet is “I hate Donald Trump so much that I want to help our enemies and watch woman and children die.” No matter how you look at it, this guy is a piece of shit.
Well, that’s not true. Liberals will look at this and think Nance is hero. Anything anti-Trump, no matter how terrible it is, gets a big thumb’s up from the left. CNN and MSNBC will continue to book this guy because he fits in with their anti-Trump agenda. Had a pro-Trump commentator made a similarly horrible statement, that person’s TV career would be over, but liberals operate under a different set of rules.
