Face The Nation asked @CoryBooker if Trump was trying to incite violence against @IlhanMN. Booker evaded the question. But Trump's track record of such attempts to incite violence tracks back to unambiguous calls, during his rallies, to his fans to beat up protestors. Indeed...
2) ...Trump is now looking into paying the legal bills of a Trump rally attendee who assaulted a protester (time.com/4256809/donald…), which is consistent with Trump's pledge that he will pardon border patrol agents who employ illegal violence.
3)...based on multiple, incriminating data points such as these, a very strong case, which I think would hold up in court, can be made that there was demonstrable intent behind Trump's recent, notorious Tweet, to incite violence against @IlhanMN. Now...

#NewZealand 🇳🇿 It's called #StochasticTerrorism. Click here 🔖 bit.ly/stoc-ter to look up the term on Google. Among other things, it's how ISIS, and other terror networks, use genocide code propaganda to recruit and trigger lone wolf assassins and terrorists.

1/ Christopher Hasson, the Coast Guard officer who plotted to murder prominent Democrats & journalists, is facing up to 31 years in jail. Prosecutors call him a ‘domestic terrorist’ but he hasn't been charged with terrorism. By Luke Barnes @LukeBarnes_92: thinkprogress.org/chris-hasson-c…
2/ This excellent but disturbing piece by David Neiwert @DavidNeiwert explores Hasson's case and the rising numbers of radicalized, violent white supremacists in the US. I recommend this article: dailykos.com/stories/2019/2…
3/ The MSM didn't spend much time on the story. Maybe they were uncomfortable with the possible link between Hasson's unhinged actions and Trump's inflammatory rhetoric. Aaron Rupar @atrupar explores Trump's history of violent rhetoric in this piece: vox.com/2019/2/22/1823…

So I was traveling for work, and I happened to turn the hotel TV on Monday night. It was initially turned to Fox News 🙄 and just then the #TrumpRally in #ElPaso was on. I watched for a few minutes and happened to catch the following sequence...
#TrumpRallyElPaso
Trump decries "fake news" and specifically points out the press section.
#StochasticTerrorism
Minutes later, a Trump supporter in a #MAGA hat attacks a BBC journalist.

We are lucky this time that it wasn't worse. With things out there like "Day of the Brick," it's easy to predict that attacks on journalists will continue, and worsen.

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

Conservative Bret Stephens calls Trump’s midterm stunts “fascistic.”
He’s dead right.
What defines fascism? Ethno-nationalism, authoritarianism, plus the embrace/fetishizing of violence.
3 for 3.

1/ Earlier today, @RVAwonk referenced a study that showed the correlation between Trump's rallies and violence, further supporting the concept of #StochasticTerrorism and shedding light on the events on what has occurred since Trump's public embrace of nationalism.
@RVAwonk 2/ In contrast to this well designed study, @Ali_H_Soufan describes a distinct yet equally problematic issue. A biased report that was shown to decision makers.

@RVAwonk @Ali_H_Soufan 3/ #Statistics tip: If you choose a sample that contains members outside of the target population, you will collect meaningless statistics.
