The nation was put into a state of panic at the startling news of several suspicious packages delivered to numerous locations last week. Dispersed amongst former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and CNN, the senders seemed to be targeting liberals.
Before I go further, I want to clarify that I don't identify with a party or even pay attention to politics enough to do so. So anything discussed further has nothing to do with left or right affiliation.
Going on, it is absolutely insane to think that these tragedies could be caused from within. Because honestly, you don't really need any political knowledge to assume that this is an internal issue (AKA the senders are most likely Republicans).
Obviously, people within the same party wouldn't turn against each other. It just doesn't make any sense, especially with the way politics work these days. There's power within numbers, and the anti-Trump-ers tend to try and come together to get rid of anything Trump proposes, or just him as a President altogether.
The world we live in today is scary. It is absolutely insane to think that our own people could potentially be attempting to harm each other.
In an article on Vox by Ella Nielson, she discussed how Trump has decided to handle this terrifying situation by, once again, blaming the media.
Once again, I don't really follow politics, but I do know that Trump tries to blame to media for most situations that he is getting blamed for.
"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy, itself," Trump said. "No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation, coercion, or control."
This is a pretty obvious statement. Obviously, no nation that is OK with violence can come great? The Middle East is a perfect example of how violence and control lead to nothing but pure destruction.
However, this time it seems that our act of terror seems to be from within, and not from some external country. I know most people on the left want someone to blame, which of course is reasonable because they are afraid. And I also know that they wish to blame the one person who belittles them the most: Trump. Personally, I truly hope it has nothing to do with an internal factor; especially not our own damn President. It would simply disrupt the nation even further, and interrupt the United States' road to greatness.
