The Right continues to devolve in an effort to justify violence at Donald Trump’s rallies. To wit, here is Ann Coulter wishing for more violence upon “violent leftist hoodlums” (racism inherent in Coulter’s tweet):
I would like to see a little more violence from the innocent Trump supporters set upon by violent leftist hoodlums.

This is on the heels of Donald Trump blaming Senator Bernie Sanders for the violence Trump is inciting and Senator Ted Cruz blaming President Obama for moralizing, which Cruz feels causes right wingers to flip their lid and sucker punch non-violent protesters who are being escorted out of a venue.
Last year Ann Coulter was lamenting that no one was paying attention to her anymore. Perhaps suspecting that her brand of hate became common place, Coulter felt the need to go deeper.
