Josh Marshall:

President Trump didn’t create rightist paramilitary violence in this country or the far broader revanchist politics of which it is only a part. His political rise grew out of both. It is a symptom, a result, a flourishing. But he has greatly expanded them, legitimized them, allowed them to imagine – quite rationally seeing the last four years – that they can vie for actual power in United States rather than simply commit acts of exemplary violence on the margins.

...Unfortunately what this suggests is that all the paramilitary violence and para-violence will likely go into overdrive if and when Trump is driven from power.
