Left-oriented individuals, especially those with a large platform like the celebrities and entertainers, are now under heavy fire due to their rhetoric, which looks like is encouraging liberals to undertake acts of violence toward those whose views differ from theirs.
The reason for the attention they are now getting is mostly due to what appears to be a politically-motivated shooting during a baseball game between members of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia.
Despite the left constantly blaming President Trump for inciting violence, which has yet to be proven, they are doing a wonderful job of it themselves.
One example of it is David Simon, the creator of the crime series ‘The Wire,” who went on Twitter recently to suggest his followers “pick up a goddamn brick” if the president fires Robert Mueller, a special counsel appointed to be the head of the FBI investigation into the alleged Russian interference into last year’s presidential election.
As reported by The Blaze, If Donald Trump fires Robert Mueller and is allowed to do so, pick up a godd**n brick,” Simon tweeted Monday. “That’s all that’s left to you.”
With that, the floodgates opened.
If Donald Trump fires Robert Mueller and is allowed to do so, pick up a goddamn brick. That’s all that’s left to you.

One person equated Simon with violent antifa leftists and said he should be “indicted for inciting violence” — but Simon wasn’t having it.
“Given that you were provoked to a keyboard, inciting stupidity is a more likely plea bargain in my future,” he tweeted back.
Indeed, Simon appeared to take on all detractors.
When one asked what Simon intended to do with his “little brick” — while copying Twitter handles for the Department of Homeland Security, the Secret Service, the FBI and the White House — “The Wire” writer was brutal in his response:
Place it carefully in the empty space atop your slouching shoulders. https://t.co/YciJGdB7SVAdvertisements

After another threat to contact the Secret Service for a threat against Trump, Simon ripped into his detractor:
Don’t just call the Secret Service, ya rube. Call the Justice League. They’re the first line of defense against disturbing rhetoric. Go big! https://t.co/VOzgq6HNVy

“Don’t just call the Secret Service, ya rube,” he wrote. “Call the Justice League. They’re the first line of defense against disturbing rhetoric. Go big!”
But this guy isn’t even an anomaly. Following are more celebrities who’ve pretty much incited violence so far:
Kathy Griffin ‘Beheads’ Trump in Graphic Photo
Madonna – “I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House.”
Joss Whedon: “I Want a Rhino to F*ck Paul Ryan to Death”
Shakespeare in the Park Stabs ‘Trump’ to Death in Performance of ‘Julius Caesar’
But I don’t think any of these people feel any remorse for the things they say and what they may encourage.
