We Will Not Be Intimidated: 7 Things Journalists Would Love to Do With a Rope & A Tree
By now you’ve probably seen this despicable—deplorable, even—pro-Trump shirt.
There’s nothing redeemable about that. That shirt is calling for the mass lynchings of the American press. Because in Trump’s America, Freedom of the Press is a concept that is somehow un-American, untied to our basic concepts of who we are and what we stand for. In this brave new world, using facts and polls to speak ill of Trump is a hanging offense.
Well, fuck off, Trump supporters. You’re never going to have the power you’re so desperate to wield. You want to give journalists a rope and a tree. Fine. You don’t scare anyone. We know you don’t understand fun, but here are a few things those journalists you hate would love to do with your suggestion.
Spend an afternoon on a rope swing, because they still feel joy, unlike Trump and his minions.
Hide in a tree house. Not from you, because again, you’re powerless and impotent. Just spend a nice afternoon with a bottle of wine and a book in a treehouse. Doesn’t that sound nice?
Jump into this beautiful lake with friends. Friends are people who like you, just in case you’re not familiar with the concept.
Tie up their yachts or whatever they’ve managed to buy with all the money you’ve chosen to believe Hillary’s lining their pockets with.
Get buff as shit

I want a shirt that says "ROPE. TREE. JOURNALIST." but then it has Ezra Klein pulling a baby Groot on a RadioFlyer red wagon. See, fixed it.— Brock Wilbur (@brockwilbur) November 7, 2016
