OUT: AMERICA NEEDS A NEW ERA OF CIVILITY AND LESS GUN TALK. IN: WRITER OF TAXI DRIVER EXPLICITLY CALLS FOR ARMED VIOLENCE AGAINST TRUMP:

Film director and writer Paul Schrader, who used to be somebody many years ago in Hollywood, has taken to Facebook to call for “violent resistance” to protest the election of Donald Trump. Actually, the keyboard guerilla has gone to the extent of claiming to be willing to take up arms. Schrader claims to be enraged by “alt.right nut jobs” but as you can see in his Friday (ironically Veteran’s Day) Facebook post, Schrader is obviously living out his violent fantasies in an alt.world:

I have spent the last five days meditating on Trump’s election. Upon consideration, I believe this is a call to violence. I felt the call to violence in the 60’s and I feel it now again. This attack on liberty and tolerance will not be solved by appeasement. Obama tried that for eight years. We should finance those who support violence resistance. We should be willing to take arms. Like Old John Brown, I am willing to battle with my children. Alt right nut jobs swagger violence. It’s time to actualize that violence, Like by Civil War Michigan predecessors I choose to stand with the black, the brown and the oppressed.

Travis Bickle ponders, you talkin’ to me?
