Every time you think the left has reached its peak level of crazy over Trump, they take it to the next level. Screenwriter Paul Schrader, who wrote the 1976 film Taxi Driver, recently got a visit from law enforcement after suggesting an armed insurrection against Trump on Facebook.
The Washington Times reports:
Paul Schrader, screenwriter, gets visit from cops after suggesting armed insurrection against Trump
New York City police paid screenwriter Paul Schrader a visit recently for a Facebook screed that suggested an armed insurrection against a Trump presidency was in order, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.
“In a late-night missive, Schrader dubbed the coming Trump presidency ‘a call to violence’ and suggested ‘we should be willing to take arms. Like Old John Brown,’ ” reported THR, noting that he quickly deleted his post but not in time to evade the notice of a counterterrorism unit with the NYPD.
For his part, Mr. Schrader quipped his lapse in judgment was due to washing down the sleep pill Ambien with some wine. He also told THR that the officers who paid him a visit were just as concerned for his safety as that of the president-elect.
So drugs made him do it? OK…
Some people on the left have lost their minds over this election. It’s pretty sad.
