What do Leftists think they are accomplishing by treating Trump supporters like the enemy? A recent example is a horrible video by leftist author/activist Don Winslow, produced even before Biden took office.
It's explained in a Breitbart article, which also includes a link to the incendiary video. From Breitbart:
Many on the left are promoting a recent video created by novelist and left-wing activist Don Winslow, which calls upon citizens to become cyber detectives to monitor and report fellow citizen Trump supporters to authorities while comparing the work of this “army of citizens” to that which led to the capture of al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden. [Left Calls for ‘Army of Citizen Detectives’ to Monitor & Report Trump Supporters, by Joshua Klein, Breitbart, January 19, 2021]
I recommend you view the video.
It characterizes Trump supporters as "domestic terrorists" and says they are "hidden among us":
"The greatest threat facing America today comes from within: radical extreme conservatives, also known as domestic terrorists. They’re hidden among us, disguised behind regular jobs. They are your children’s teachers. They work at supermarkets, malls, doctor’s offices, and many are police officers and soldiers."
It predicts Trump will start a civil war:
“In the years ahead, Trump will lead his army of domestic terrorists. He will encourage and incite violence.... He will start a civil war...”
It calls on people to monitor their fellow American "extremists" and report them to authorities:
“We have to fight back. In this new war, the battlefield has changes. Computers can be more valuable than guns. And this is what we need now more than ever: an army of citizen detectives. I’m proposing we form a citizen army. Our weapons will be computers and cell phones. We who are monitoring extremists on the internet and reporting their findings to authorities.”
Check out this chilling statement:
“Remember, before the Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden he had to be found. He was found by a CIA analyst working on a computer thousands of miles away.”
