Add plotting assassinations to the list of jobs Americans won’t do, although I’m sure there are scores of deranged Hillary and Bernie supporters who would beg to disagree, based upon a cursory examination of Twitter. As Scott Adams has pointed out, the left’s insistence upon comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler-and establishment Republicans share the blame in this regard-has practical consequences beyond the political arena.

Once you’ve convinced a large number of emotionally unstable, cognitively impaired individuals that the presumptive Republican nominee is akin to the former leader of the Third Reich, many of those individuals will draw the ineluctable conclusion that anything done to obstruct his election-including attempting to murder him-is mortally justified.

Good going, progressives.
