According To Some: Donald Trump Jr. Is His Father’s Son!

Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., must have thought he was being funny. Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son shared a photo of a hammer and men’s briefs on social media after a guy broke into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home and beat her 82-year-old husband with it. Apparently alluding to a false allegation that the attacker was House Minority Leader Paul Pelosi, the caption stated, “I’ve got my Paul Pelosi Halloween costume ready.”

It’s hardly shocking that Trump’s son would display such vileness. This further proves that Donald Trump Jr. is very much his father’s son. Donald Trump Sr. has advocated for violence for many years.

To describe a Republican candidate who had insulted a journalist in 2018, he said, “He’s my sort of guy.” Following riots in 2020 over George Floyd’s death, he tweeted, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” echoing racist comments from the 1960s.

On October 22, the ex-president amused a throng by suggesting that jailing reporters would make them “the bride of another prisoner,” forcing them to expose their private sources.

Hearing the subsequent laughing makes one consider two possibilities: There appeared to be a sizable contingent of bigots at the gathering, and they were apparently eager to listen to rhetoric that no other former President would dare utter.

When you include in his son’s viciousness—after all, why to make fun of an elderly man whose skull was fractured?—Trump’s odd behavior becomes even more glaring.

The fact that others are following Trump’s lead is even worse. Following the assault, an Arizona state legislator posted a photo of a bleeding hammer. At a campaign gathering for a Republican candidate in Virginia, Governor Glenn Youngkin tut-tutted that violence is terrible in general before making fun of the House speaker by stating, “We’re going to send her back to live with him in California.”

Senator Ted Cruz retweeted a claim that the assault suspect is “a hippy nudist from Berkeley,” adding the word “truth,” despite claims that the suspect posted conspiracy theories regarding the 2020 election and the January 6 incident.

Representative Fred Upton of Michigan, who is retiring after 24 years in office, was one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach the older Trump over the January 6 uprising and has since called the joke “disgusting.” Upton said, “Words count” in a phone interview with CNN.

During an interview published on Monday, the former President finally spoke out on the attack, calling it “a terrible event” and lamenting the increase in crime in American cities.

Trump’s anger isn’t always without qualifying statements that allow him to avoid taking the blame. (“I’ve heard that” and, “a lot of people tell me” are two examples.) Trump, though, may be leading us to new depths.

In the wake of last week’s incident, a discussion over the appropriateness of violent rhetoric has restarted. Most Republicans hide behind the fact that it’s impossible to predict how leaders who don’t care will affect impressionable people’s thoughts. However, there is substantial evidence linking violent behaviors to verbal outbursts.

An influential essay written in the 1990s, titled “Defining Deviancy Down,” had unsettling foresight regarding the results of actions like Trump’s crude and cruel rhetoric.

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a sociologist by training, published it to make the case that societies can only police a certain amount of deviance. As that runs out, people start to accept behavior that was once considered unacceptable.

Moynihan said, “We are,” meaning that people have become accustomed to harmful behaviors. Never have those words been more appropriate.
