As with "coup d'etat" and "civil war," Trump's "lynching" comment is meant to equate impeachment with violence and thus legitimize a violent response to it.

During the past two weeks, tens of thousands of people have fled the once stable border area of Syria to escape shelling by Turkish troops, adding to the millions of people already displaced throughout a brutal eight-year civil war

@TurkCitizen  @GiranOzcanY  @barbarosansalfno  @tunabeklevicu  know you really discredit yourself when citing that number since everyone knows that's the total casualty count of the civil war and a majority of the casualties, military and civilian, were killed by the Turkish security forces

Worth noting that the harm of lynching went far beyond the thousands of direct victims. It played a key role in the effort by the former slave power to overturn the verdict of the Civil War via terrorism. It helped set our nation back 100 years.

Many factors contributed to the Civil War. One caused it: slavery.

I have visited nations ravaged by civil war. @realDonaldTrump  I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant.

So today Trump threatened a whistleblower, accused one or more of his top nat sec aides of being spies, demanded a House Chair be interrogated on suspicion of treason and threatened to foment a civil war if he is removed from office.

The alleged wannabe mass murderer in the Coast Guard googled "civil war if Trump impeached." Where could he possibly get such an insane idea? Oh

I have seen social movements for change - the Civil Rights Movement, protests over the Vietnam War, the fall of communism in Europe, apartheid in South Africa. This is often how a new reality begins.
