Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA spoke at an event in Nampa, Idaho and responded to one of his followers who asked him when he can start using guns to kill people he disagree with. The Kirk fan asked, “at this point we’re living under corporate and medical fascism. This is tyranny. When do we get to use the guns?” This prompted the audience to erupt in applause. The person asking the question, suspecting people were not taking him seriously, clarified, “that’s not a joke. I’m not saying it like that, I mean literally. Where’s the line? How many elections are they going to steal before we kill these people?” Kirk interrupted and said he’s “going to denounce that” but not for the reasons one might suspect regarding the comments wishing deeply immoral and illegal actions take place. Charlie said that the person asking the question was “playing right into all their plans,” making it seems as though that’s exactly what folks on the left would want. While Kirk was smart enough not to accept the attendee’s violent suggestions, he chose to denounce it in the weakest way possible and to make the person asking the question seem morally justified for feeling the way he does. This is the type of messaging that can lead to a stochastic terrorism event and one that, seeing Kirk’s fanbase, would come as no surprise if it was to transpire.
