MSNBC analyst claims Trump will ‘burn the place down’ like cult leader David Koresh

MSNBC/NBC national security analyst Frank Figliuzzi insisted that former President Donald J. Trump will incite his supporters to engage in a fiery explosion of violence when he goes down, likening him to cult leader David Koresh.

The former FBI official joined fellow left-wing hysteric Dean Obeidallah on the latest edition of “The Dean Obeidallah Show” on Sirius XM there he tossed about the once-obscure concocted term “stochastic terrorism” to paint his over-the-top picture of the Republican Party frontrunner inciting patriotic Americans to wage a campaign of violence, a blatantly false narrative that has been the cornerstone of the Democrat resistance to Trump since the January 6, 2021 chaos at the Capitol.

With it looking all but inevitable that Trump will win the nomination and go on to face the mentally declining President Joe Biden in November, the host set up his guest for another one of the typically deranged forecasts that have been his stock in trade since moving from government to the media.

“In your heart, what are your concerns about what he might do?” Obeidallah asked. “To at least win, somehow, in any way?”

“Yeah, you know that I’ve drawn many, many comparisons between the MAGA movement and the cult,” Figliuzzi answered. “And I truly increasingly believe that’s what we’re looking at. So if that’s true, let’s look toward cult research as to what a cult leader does when the end is near, and it’s not the end that he wants.”

“And so people who research and study cults call it ‘forcing the end,’ forcing the end, meaning when things look like they’re not going to turn out,” the ex-fed continued.

“I’ll point to the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas and David Koresh,” Figliuzzi said. “You’re surrounded, the tanks are out there. Things aren’t looking good. You told your cultists that things were going to work out. We’re all going to have — and, you make things happen and, and of course, the cult in Waco, it ended in flames. He literally instructed his followers to light on fire the corners of the buildings. You can see this on the heat-seeking imagery happening.”

Koresh was the leader of the Branch Davidians, a religious sect that after an exchange of gunfire that killed four ATF agents during a botched raid, engaged in a 51-day standoff between heavily armed federal forces and the group’s members from February 28 to April 19, 1993, which ended in an apocalyptic blaze that claimed the lives of the leader and 76 others, including over 20 children.

“Yeah. Can Trump burn the place down? Figuratively? Yes. Will he instruct, directly or indirectly, his crazy followers, some of them, to, or incite them through stochastic terrorism, to commit violence? Sure,” he said.

According to Wikipedia, the term “refers to political or media figures publicly demonizing a person or group in such a way that it inspires supporters of the figures to commit a violent act against the target of the speech. Unlike incitement to terrorism, this is accomplished by using indirect, vague, or coded language that allows the instigator to plausibly disclaim responsibility for the resulting violence. Global trends point to increasing violent rhetoric and political violence, including more evidence of stochastic terrorism.”

The term evolved much from its original meaning and in its current form was popularized by a blogger on the left-wing Daily Kos. It was relegated to academia until 2016 when it began to be used against Trump and the people who support him who today, are viewed as almost subhuman, particularly by Biden who has routinely characterized them as enemies of the state.

“Can law enforcement get ahead of that? No, no! They’re doing their best, scrambling within the laws and the parameters to try and monitor known violent extremists,” Figliuzzi said, denying that the feds are spying on Trump supporters despite recent revelations that the Treasury Department instructed banks to monitor financial transactions, including gun and Bible purchases, for words such as MAGA and Trump.

“But any notion that the FBI is watching everybody’s correspondence is absolutely absurd. Can’t do it legally. They can’t do it resource-wise. So, a small cell, an actor, that actor here, there, can really, really do some damage, and I think Trump, will show no hesitation in lighting the place on fire, figuratively,” he concluded.

Like so many other Deep State veterans, Figliuzzi has a penchant for fascistic fantasizing about Trump, once practically drooling over the idea that the former president would be locked away in a “Supermax” prison for the rest of his life like the Unabomber, he said during an appearance on Obeidallah’s show last year.
