In a wildly irresponsible column, Huffington Post writer Jesse Benn is advocating for violence at Donald Trump rallies.

According to Fox News

A writer for the Huffington Post is defending his recent op-ed that “a violent response” is the “logical” approach to stopping presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. Jesse Benn wrote in the op-ed titled “Sorry Liberals, A Violent Response To Trump Is As Logical As Any,” posted on Monday, “[T]here’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization. Violent resistance accomplishes this.”

“These denunciations of violence from anti-Trump protestors rest on the misguided view that the divide Trump’s exposed is a typical political disagreement between partisans, and should be handled as such.,” he wrote. “This couldn’t be further from the truth. Trump might not be a fascist in the 20th century European sense of the term—though many of his supporters are—but he might represent its 21st century US version.”

“Violent resistance matters. Riots can lead to major change,” Benn wrote.

It’s not surprising to see a progressive fail to use his words and resort to violence to make a point. Let’s just hope Democrats don’t continue to heed his call. Because if they do, the blood will be on Jesse Benn’s hands.
