A far-left activist named Don Winslow is calling for American citizens to spy on their fellow citizens, and report any supporters of President Donald Trump to the authorities, as reported by Breitbart.
In a roughly two-minute video released by Winslow that has since garnered over three million views, he declares that all Trump supporters are “domestic terrorists,” and that “they’re hidden among us, disguised behind regular jobs.” Winslow also claims that even after Trump leaves office, he will “lead his army of domestic terrorists,” and baselessly claims that Trump will “encourage and incite violence,” and “start a civil war.”
Winslow goes on to explicitly compare President Trump to the late Al-Qaeda leader and terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, saying that “before the Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, he had to be found.” Winslow concludes that the Left must form a “citizen army patrolling the Internet,” and once again blanket labels all of President Trump’s supporters as an “army of white supremacy.”
The video was widely shared on Twitter, which has largely become a left-wing echo chamber after many conservative or otherwise right-of-center accounts were banned in recent weeks. Although many left-wing activists eagerly and blindly shared the video and echoed its sentiments, several users attempted to report the video to Twitter for being an actual example of inciting violence. The video is yet to be taken down by Twitter.
