A writer for the Huffington Post is defending his recent op-ed that “a violent response” is the “logical” approach to stopping presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
And PuffHo agrees, through their inaction.
What Jesse Benn wrote in his op-ed Sorry Liberals, A Violent Response To Trump Is As Logical As Any:
[T]here’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization. Violent resistance accomplishes this.
Because unpopular speech, rude speech—especially speech unpopular with the Left, speech that’s rude to the Left—must be shut down. At any cost. And others’ right to decide for themselves what speech they will hear must be destroyed. At any cost.
Elections have consequences.
