Trump’s Enforcers (Brown Shirt Thugs) Starting Out With Tweets

It was only a matter of time until Trump’s enforcers commenced their intimidation. It’s starting out with threatening tweets but if need be you can be sure a few heads will get knocked together.


Bits and pieces from a politico article by Rachael Bade:

In early December, Rep. Bill Flores made what seemed like an obvious observation to a roomful of conservatives at a conference in Washington. Some of Donald Trump’s proposals, the Texas Republican cautioned, “are not going to line up very well with our conservative policies,” though he quickly added that there was plenty the incoming president and GOP Congress could accomplish together.

Little did Flores realize the hell that would soon rain down from Trump’s throng of enforcers.

Breitbart seized on Flores’ remarks a few days later, calling them proof that House Republicans planned to “isolate and block President Donald Trump’s populist campaign promises.” A conservative populist blogger for the site TruthFeed then warned Flores on Twitter to “get ready for a shit storm,” and posted a headline that read: “BREAKING: Rep. Bill Flores Has CRAFTED a PLAN to BLOCK Trump’s Immigration Reform.”

Sean Hannity jumped in, too, featuring the Breitbart post on his syndicated radio show. That only further riled the impromptu anti-Flores mob.


It’s not quite Hitler’s Brown Shits marching into the Reichstag and physically threatening lawmakers to get in line with the Fuhrer’s intentions. But the chilling handwriting is on the wall.

The nifty part is that Trump will not have to utter a peep or a tweet to send his enforcers into action. He makes to bones about what he intends to do, so any Republican, or any other politician for that matter, that shows the slightest hesitation to go along with his intentions will not only put their political career in danger but could possibly cause something much much worse to ensue.

And to encourage such enforcement all Fuhrer Trump has to do is to blow off such intimidation tactics as something over which he has no control, or just outright ignore it all.

Let the season of terror politics begin.
