Supporters of former President Donald Trump, angered by his conviction on 34 felony counts by a New York jury, inundated pro-Trump websites with calls for riots, revolution, and violent retribution.

Following Trump’s conviction, making him the first U.S. president to be found guilty of a crime, his supporters posted numerous violent comments online. A Reuters review found dozens of such posts on three Trump-aligned websites: his own Truth Social platform, Patriots. Win, and the Gateway Pundit.

Some supporters called for attacks on jurors, the execution of Judge Juan Merchan, and even outright civil war and armed insurrection. “Someone in NY with nothing to lose needs to take care of Merchan,” wrote one commenter on Patriots.Win. “Hopefully he gets met with illegals with a machete,” the post added, referencing illegal immigrants. On Gateway Pundit, one poster suggested shooting liberals after the verdict: “Time to start capping some leftys. This cannot be fixed by voting.”

Threats of violence and intimidating rhetoric surged after Trump lost the 2020 election and falsely claimed the vote was stolen. As he campaigns for a second White House term, Trump has baselessly labeled the judges and prosecutors in his trials as corrupt tools of the Biden administration, intent on sabotaging his bid. His loyalists have responded with a campaign of threats and intimidation targeting judges and court officials.

“This was a disgrace, this was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt,” Trump told reporters afterward, echoing comments he often made during the trial. A 12-member jury found Trump guilty on Thursday of falsifying documents to cover up a payment to silence a porn star’s account of a sexual encounter ahead of the 2016 election. Sentencing is set for July 11, just days before the Republican Party is scheduled to formally nominate Trump for president ahead of the Nov. 5 election. Trump has denied wrongdoing and is expected to appeal.

Trump continued his attacks online after the verdict. On Truth Social, he called Merchan “HIGHLY CONFLICTED” and criticized his jury instructions as unfair. One commentator responded by posting a picture of a hangman’s platform and a noose with the caption: “TREASONOUS MOBSTER OF THE JUSTICES SYSTEM!!”

Jacob Ware, co-author of the book “God, Guns, and Sedition: Far-Right Terrorism in America,” said the violent language used by Trump’s followers was a testament to the former president’s “ironclad ability to mobilize more extreme supporters to action, both at the ballot box and through violence.”
