To date, US police have confirmed that six suspected explosive devices were sent to prominent Democratic players.
The targets include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former president Barack Obama and big spending political donor George Soros. The news outlet CNN was also targeted.
The explosive devices have rightfully drawn outrage from politicians across the political spectrum.
Unfortunately, the outrage coming from the far-left isn’t aimed at the vile, psychotic culprit — or culprits — behind the domestic terrorist plot.
Left-wing pollies blaming Trump
Instead, left-wing pollies and their mainstream media mouthpieces are fanning anger among already polarised US voters. Despite his attempts to calm the nation, they would have you believe that US President Donald Trump is to blame.
As RAW reported, Trump is devastated by the threats of domestic terrorism.
‘Acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America… We’re extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning and we will get to the bottom of it.’
At a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday, Trump continued his efforts to defuse the widening and potentially dangerous political divisions within the US.
‘We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony. We can do it. It will happen… The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negativity, and often times false attacks and stories.’
Fortunately, no one has been injured yet, as none of the devices detonated.
The domestic terror effort is reminiscent of David Kaczynski’s bombing spree from 1978–1995. The Unabomber’s explosive devices injured 23 people and killed three. Yet we don’t recall the media or opposing politicians attempting to blame former presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, or Bill Clinton.
But modern politics has taken a turn for the uglier. Rather than come together, Democrats have been quick to politicise the issue, blaming Trump’s often brazen rhetoric for encouraging violence.
New Jersey’s Democratic Representative Bill Pascrell said:
‘For years now, Donald Trump has been calling for the jailing of his critics and has lauded violence against journalists… The danger of right-wing extremism cannot be ignored and more attention must be paid to it before even worse violence occurs.’

Is there political motivation behind their accusations?
Granted, Trump likes to disparage the reports from left-wing mainstream media as ‘fake news’. And he did encourage the idea that Hillary Clinton should go to jail over her mishandling of classified emails, chanting, ‘Lock her up!’
But that’s a far cry from encouraging voters to send pipe bombs.
Not that this has stopped his opponents from dismissing Trump’s reaction to the domestic terror threat as ‘hollow’.
According to RAW, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed Trump in a statement:
‘Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions.’
Do they really believe this? And do they believe their own words are helping close the growing political and ideological divide?
Or could there be a political motivation behind their divisive rhetoric?
Don’t forget that US midterm elections are set for 6 November. Democrats are desperate to regain control of the House of Representatives or the Senate.
And we imagine Schumer, Pelosi and Trump’s other detractors are aware of the results of a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll.
That poll found rising anger and perceived divisions would be a significant factor for voters in the upcoming elections.
Regardless of what Trump says or does, we expect the left-wing will continue to play the blame game…and further enflame US tensions. We’ll know on 7 November how that works out for them.
