Reprimand Politician Who Body Slammed Reporter

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Condemn politician who allegedly body slammed a reporter to the ground.

Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian, was allegedly attacked by a Republican politician. Greg Gianforte, who is running for a congressional seat in Montana, allegedly body slammed Jacobs to the ground after Jacobs asked him a question he was unhappy with.

While this past year has been filled with reporters and journalists being verbally abused, this is the first time a reporter has been violently assaulted by a politician. Jacobs had his glasses broken as Gianforte allegedly threw punches at him while he was still on the floor.

It is evident that Donald Trump’s violent rhetoric toward the press inspired this politician to lash out. If the President condones this kind of violent behavior, then Republican politicians who idolize him will listen. Sign this petition if you believe Trump has an obligation as President to condemn this alleged act of violence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

A reporter was allegedly violently attacked by a Republican politician in Montana. Ben Jacobs of The Guardian alleges that Greg Gianforte body slammed him into the ground. However, despite this violence by someone in your own party, you have stayed silent.

You lend some responsibility for this event. For well over a year, you have verbally attacked the press and referred to them as enemies. Now, that violent rhetoric has come to fruition thanks to one of your followers. As the President of the United States, you are supposed to defend the Constitution and the freedom of the press. I demand that you condemn Gianforte’s actions. They have no place in either political party and no place at all in American society.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    What the hell is wrong with Montana? It’s all fun and games until it’s affecting them I guess. That’s what Germany thought when Hitler came to power.
