The Committee for Public Safety killed their own.

Danton and Robespierre did not live to old age.

The "Enemies of the People" are like witches.

Once you start looking they are easy to find.

"Be careful what you wish for.."



No kidding, and if you've paid any attention to the SJW crowd, they *will* find enemies of the people and they *will* eat their own frequently and with great fervor.

Yeah its both sides... the people who scream for torture and the ones who point out torture is illegal and unethical. The people who scream for walls and deportation and those awful people suggesting empathy and some kind of path for citizenship... those awesome people who elect a guy who brags about sexual assault and openly calls on Russia to help him win an election and the terrible people who say, wait no that's wrong. Both sides equally terrible, or so I hear.


You have a lot of courage.

To praise and spew the very nonsense that this man who shot people today did is very bold of you.

How do you have vigorous discourse with people who view this all as good v. evil and not as an exchange of ideas?

You rise above.

Both sides are at fault. The first step is admitting that. The shooter in this case might be a 'liberal' or 'progressive,' but the 'conservatives' share some of the blame for the division. We have laws; enforce them equally and fairly. Continue the conversation with anyone who will contribute, and allow those who will not to be their own worst enemy. Do not hate; do not fear; do not falter in your higher ideals. And finally, trust that things will work out and others will join the call for peace.

They will.

I don't want to argue.

For months we watched the fires get stoked to this inevitable outcome.

Never of a question of if, but when.

Not with open borders it won't we see what is happening in europe and the same will happen here, the usa needs to know that it must stand alone for a while. The worlds poor can no longer come here by the millions, put out a no vacancy sign for the ones that are not worthy of this country ie muslims from war torn countries. allow them to set up those safe zones that have been talke about and let them fix their own coutnries. stop the insanity.

I saw an article headline, an interview with his brother said hes been deranged ever since Trump got elected.


Reminds me of many leftists I know.


This whole " lefty - righty " thing has become more idiotic as time goes by. (Anyone else remember the origial T V Star Trek episode of the guys fightig over the other on having black and white on the wrong side ? )

VF


As a casual Trekkie, I remember, "Let that be your last battlefield" well. They hated each other because one race was black on the right side...and the other race was white on the right side of their body. Their entire civilization was destroyed by war and hate. Not a single person left on the their planet in the end. Sad stuff..

I'm not praising anything the shooter said. I'm not praising anything of the sort. I think you may need to re-read.

Actually your post is extremely offensive. NOBODY on this entire thread has praised the actions of this piece of sh#t shooter. NOBODY.

You want to call my words courage. So be it. I call it FREE SPEECH.

Only calling for much the same thing for the eight years of Obama, and Clinton's eight. Now, I'll freely admit that this current stupidity on the part of antifa and their ilk is worse...by orders of magnitude, at times. No argument from me about that.

But, now I'm hearing folks, or idiots if you prefer, saying that because of the behaviour of some, only some, on the left, that it's going to be open season if, or when, the left returns to power--or the majority of it, anyway.

Why? What would that f'n solve, or resolve? Yet the clamor is beginning that may bring us just that. It's fairly faint now, but won't remain that way, I'm afraid.

Frankly, I've heard and seen enough of that sort of crap. I'm tired of it, and those who spout it.

If anything, because of these idiots, I am afraid of the revenge when they return to power. What will they do with the power of government in their hands again?

Indeed, so might it not be an idea, even a good one, for us to all stop this idiocy?

Then maybe, just maybe, start talking to each other, instead of at each other? Maybe?

Again you are right to call out people that seek to go tit for tat.

I agree with you on that.

But the best way to stop this "retaliation" is to stop the insanity occuring now.

All of the bad behaviour I mentioned on my past posts, and were was the consequences?

Antifa beats people at Berkely and other places? So what do the cops do? Arrest Base Stick Man.

What do many in the media do? Ignore the violence, or condone or blame Trump for it.

Its going to be hard to stop this retaliation, but I will be right there with you trying.

But me and you both know, if it was conservative groups doing the stuff I mentioned in my thread, the cops would crack down on them, the media would be going crazy, the Southern Poverty Law Center would be labeling tons of conservative groups as hate groups.

Its hard to tell people to not be outraged by this, and take it too far.

So while I will continue to do that, I think it is on people on the left that are reasonable (which I assume is most of them) to start calling out this insanity. Heavens knows I have tried, but they don't want to hear it from people like me.

This. All day long, and into the night, this. This is what adults do. It's time, and past, for us to grow the Hell up and act like we're adults, rather than spoiled little children not getting a sweet while at the grocery store.

I admire the people here who can rise above the disgust that I personally feel for this cowardly leftist terrorist scumbag.

I admire you all because I cannot.

I don't have it in me to be so forgiving towards an ideology that would cheer my death.

Honestly.

but in all honesty, can you point to even one example of conservatives shutting down a liberal speaking on campus?


can you in all honesty say that you know that there hasn't been a time??? as it is, no, can't think of one, but I can think of a elementary school being shut down because of the conservative protesters chasing their students down the sidewalk yelling to them!!!




How about a conservative riot when Obama was elected?



the pot was just simmering when he was elected... it boiled over?? are you claiming the the conservative played no part in turning up the heat??

but this is the one that caught my attention....




How about Main stream conservative outlets or media people celebrating a liberal being shot?


who, what, where, and when??? and don't give me a bunch of fruitcakes on twitter or facebook that are hiding in their imaginary illusion of Anonymity or celebrity wackos ? mainstream news outlets!!!
