Donald Trump supporters took to the comments section of the candidate’s Facebook page on Friday to spew out stomach wrenching calls to violence in the aftermath of last night’s shootings.

Trump wrote on his page a politically bland message condemning the shootings. He expressed some sort of remorse at the deaths, but didn’t denounce anything as leading to the violence. In fact, out of character for Trump, his message was -almost- non-racist.

Trump wrote on his Facebook page, saying, “We must restore law and order. We must restore the confidence of our people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street.”

He went on, saying, “Our nation has become too divided. Too many Americans feel like they’ve lost hope. Crime is harming too many citizens. Racial tensions have gotten worse, not better.”

Curiously, Trump didn’t name the victims of the two most recent high profile police killings. Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, although he referenced their deaths.

Rounding out his statement, Trump coughed up some “thoughts and prayers” for America, the ever popular remedy of the right for America’s addiction to violence.

You can find Trump’s full statement below.

Trump’s supporters filled in for his seeming lack of racism however via comments. They weren’t too keen on the idea of law and order either- to put it lightly.

One commenter, a business consultant named Jeff Minder, was wildly explicit in what he was calling for- in short, massive stockpiling of weaponry among private citizens and a usage of those weapons against “bad guys.”

Minder wrote:

‘I am calling on all my brother’s at arms to begin the process of gathering together in your local communities, take inventory of your skills and abilities, freshen up on small unit tactics, and prepare to face the enemy. The best defense is a great offense. Sitting alone with 100,000 rounds of .223 is not going to save you, it is imperative that we ban [sic] together as like thinking men and women.’

Yes, you read that correctly. Minder, who works as a business consultant under the slogan “Capitalism over socialism,” is among many leaving open and specific calls to violence on social media, often under the Trump banner.

Looking up Minder’s Facebook profile finds that the man posted on Trump’s timeline a scripted response. The same text is a post on his Facebook wall, pointing to a sick level of premeditation in his remarks.

Other commenters left similar responses on Trump’s post. One person, Tiffiney John Stebbins, replied to Minder saying that “We’re prepared down south…To[o] many people sit around hopeing [sic] someone else will do something. Only we can fix where our country is headed.”

Another commenter, Max Wolfe, left an accusation that President Obama is instigating “race wars” among Americans, “wars” which are supposedly leading to the imposition of martial law and the “extending” of Obama’s “presidential role.”

Wolfe’s comment is still at the top of the comment section of Trump’s post-Dallas Facebook statement as of late Friday afternoon.

Topping off the comment barrage, one individual, Alexa Lynne, wrote claiming to be the “best friend” of someone who’s father in law was one of those killed in Dallas.

Lynne wrote on Trump’s page, saying, “We NEED you Trump!!…We can no longer wait until November…It’s time to end #WhiteGenocide.”

This woman thereby indirectly called for violence against President Obama to bring him out of office- note that she said “we can no longer wait until November.”

The Trump train is losing most of its steam going into the November election. Trump has excited wild ultra right nationalists- and pretty much nobody else. Model after model has Trump and his supporters getting ready to sit behind a massive loss margin in November.
