There are,

However, I don't remember seeing any -pro-kavanaugh- people chasing Maxine Waters or Kamala out of restaurants.. Or sitting on their lawns screaming obscenities..
I don't remember any Republicans doxxing US Senators and threatening to release information about their children.
I don't remember seeing any -pro-kavanaugh- people saying Dr Ford should be killed

If you want to pretend there's nothing going on thats violent and border line criminal with these ''anti-kavanaugh/anti-trump'' people then your head is buried so far in the sand your a$$ is sitting in the US while your head is sitting in Tasmania.

Actually is is a party issue.

Communism is on the march.

The snip we witnessed recently goes on in the North Korea,China,and other despotic regimes.


What is super confusing to me is the reverse psychology of it all.

Democrats hate Russia and say Russia infiltrated America and are "going back to the Cold War mentality", but yet want a Communist govt ? Huh? That's contradictory.

Republicans hate the Islamic movement, and Democrats protect them all the time from any criticism - yet Repubs have way more in common with the traditionalist conservative views of Islam, and Democrats are completely at odds with just about everything preached in Islam.

This stuff is too ironic.


The only way that communism can survive is if there is a strong nationalist bent to it. There has to be a great enemy to fight. If their isn't, the peasants start to look around at their misery and wonder if it's all worth it. Because communism, socialism, fascism all equalize through lowering the standard to equal misery. They do not lift everyone up.

There is no rising tide.

So there has to be a great other to fight against, internal enemies of the people to root out, etc., reasons for the miserable state to work against and hate.

As for the traditional conservative views ... what traditional conservative views are those? Kill people who don't bow and pray five times a day? Yes, a lot of us prefer the ideas of faith because generally speaking faith teaches values like respect for self and others. If the left had found a sound way to do that secularly on a wide scale, we might be less mistrustful of their general hostility to the idea of allowing us to continue on with our ways of instilling that respect, but they don't seem to be doing a very good job.

Yeah, I read snopes too.

Convenient explanation.

Where's the evidence that was the case? Surely there has to be some online/text communication available to prove this was the case.

It's nice to see you buy into BS nowadays. Definitely helps your credibility.


You should know by now that I'm not going to say something I'm not already prepared to back up. Let's start with something from a "news" site deep in the depths of the Trump echo chamber, Big Leauge Politics:

EXCLUSIVE: Soros-Funded Group Paying Bail Money For Arrestees Who Protest Kavanaugh


A nonprofit funded by leftist billionaire George Soros held a meeting in Washington, D.C. Wednesday night during which it distributed cash for bail to protestors who are wreaking havoc outside Senate offices on Thursday.

Michael Wille infiltrated the meeting held by the Center For Popular Democracy (CPD) at St. Stephen’s Church in D.C., where the group was planning a #StopKavanaugh protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Wille also provided Big League Politics with video from the event, where the group practiced chants that they would use at the protest:

Wille said that he did not accept bail money from the group, and that protestors are required to return the cash if they are not arrested.


It's not a secret that this was happening:

Meet the protesters interrupting Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing


The Women's March also has the financial backing to support members -- they fundraise off their email list and have sent six fundraising emails in the last two days that have raised more than six figures, according to Wong. The group lends financial support for travel, accommodation, legal training and bail. The arrests Monday resulted in a $35 to $50 bail, which the group paid for.


People being arrested were coming from all over. And lo and behold, their bail was $35. This woman was from Detroit:

Metro Detroit woman among dozens arrested in Kavanaugh protests


Kenner, a Rochester native who, until recently, lived in Detroit, attended the hearing with support from the Women's March organization. The group has been covering bail for women who want to speak out against the judge. Nearly all of the protesters arrested so far have been charged with disorderly conduct. Kenner says her bail was $35.


The woman from the picture was interviewed by her local paper.

Woman describes protest, arrest at Kavanaugh hearing


A half-dozen members of the Vermont-based group Rights & Democracy, including Lampron, headed to the nation's capital on Monday to protest the Kavanaugh hearings. They joined roughly 1,000 other activists from The Women's March and the Center for Popular Democracy, said Kate Lapp of Williston, also with Rights & Democracy.


The group has explained exactly what they do:

No, George Soros isn’t paying Kavanaugh protesters


Jennifer Flynn Walker, director of advocacy and mobilization for both the center and its 501(c)(4) arm, said protesters are not being paid. Soros has no involvement in the group’s organizing efforts or strategy sessions for opposing Kavanaugh, she added.

“A payment means someone has money at the end of the day to go buy milk for their family,” she said. “We help people with post-and-forfeit. You get it for the hour or so at the Capitol, and then if you get arrested, you give it to the Capitol Police. You don’t take it home. And if you don’t get arrested, you give it back to us.”


In fact, it was explained to the photographer by Jennifer Walker as it was happening. Part of the partial transcript of the audio from Schindler's site:

Story Behind Kavanaugh “Paid Protesters”


Jennifer @ 1:11: “We cover the fines. You know people get fined.”

Adam @ 1:14: “So you give them money upfront and then they get arrested…?”

Jennifer: “Yeah… because they…”

3rd Party: “no no no…to get out. We do not get money to get arrested. We get our fine paid.”

Jennifer @ 1:30: “And a lot of people bring their own money… but a lot of times people don’t have cash and we have to, you can’t get out without cash, so we have to… (unintelligible)

Adam: “So you pay, you pay… The intention is to protest but you know you’re gonna get arrested and then..” (Jennifer cuts in)

Jennifer: “No the intention is to protest to have your voice heard. Unfortunately, the Capitol Police and the hearing committee decided that that results in an arrest.”

Jenifer @3:14: “You can ask anyone in the line if they’ve gotten paid… or if this is a job…”

Jennifer @ 3:30: “I am from the Center for Popular Democracy and I organized this protest.”


Do I really need to connect these dots for you?

I don't get what you're saying

Earlier you said


No, the problem comes when conservatives, including Trump (fake conservative?), President of the United States, try to dismiss left-wing protesters as being paid shills.
Are you trying to tell me that all this "paid protesters" BS is about professional organizers?


but above you clearly list multiple entries showing these protests are organised and are shills..

If you are niave enough to believe ''they only pay our bail and thats it'' that's your fault...

I wonder how you would feel if people chased you through airports... or hassled you at restaurants... or sat our the front of your house taunting you... better yet, I wonder how you would feel if someone accused you - on national TV - of sexual assaulting them 30yrs ago...

A line was crossed - the DNC even have a paid person doxxing their personal details - these people are scum and so are all those that defend them!

ignorance is bliss eh? just because you read it on the internet means you can look the other way and claim the highground

You literally just named two achievements of the Republican Party: ending slavery and the 15th Amendment. The GOP was not "progressive" or liberal at any point, they simply were and are the party of personal responsibility, Constitutional rights and law, and the party of pragmatism.

Congratulations, you just played yourself.
-DJ Khaled


Wow, that is sad. Here's where you were at in your post-to-post mutating chain of intellectual dishonesty:


It's sort of in the definition of "Conservative" which means one who seeks to conserve and maintain existing norms, conditions, and views.


Then when I point out obvious — I mean, self evident on their face irrefutable — conservative positions at various times in history, you try to pretzel out of it by going all Dinesh D'Souza on me and shifting from "conservative" to "Republican."

Probably the most mind-boggling thing about it is like a lot of conservatives, you have this fixation on the Confederacy.

Preserving slavery was the conservative position. How can you even deny that? Remember this? "seeks to conserve and maintain existing norms, conditions, and views"

What was the "existing norm," the "existing condition," the status quo? Hint: it wasn't the LACK of slavery. How about woman's suffrage? What was the existing norm that conservatives were fighting to conserve? Guess what it wasn't? It wasn't women having the right to vote.

I'm not often at a loss for words but I struggle to articulate the level of cognitive dissonance on display in your last two posts.

There weren't enough people who were passionate about this issue so they had to inflate the crowds a bit for the cameras so we could create those viral moments that get everyone talking.

The Leftist/Marxist movement just doesn't have any gas left really... nobody wants to make a fool of themselves anymore just in order to prove they hate the right people... they gotta see the footage of themselves, 6 months to a year later and feel pretty stupid... the White Guilt that has fueled 100% of the last several years of accellerated Progressive-Democratic gains has finally ran out. They're down to fumes. The restless naive ignorant youth in the Marxist Strongholds called Universities are really all they got cause they will fight for any cause. And nobody takes them seriously. Even they are beginning to wake up.

So they gotta pay to get enough bodies in the right place shouting the right slogans. They can't find enough viral moments to keep their dwindling base energized so they have to manufacture them by literally writing a script and pretending like a bunch of people were angry enough to actually be there... Everybody knows its absolute bullsnip though so it doesn't really matter. It just gives more people more reasons to hold the entire Democratic Party in contempt.

Yep we hate blacks and want them to be our slaves. You totally have a valid point! Keep on railing on about 160 years ago, meanwhile in the year 2018, where we actually LIVE, your party is going absolute ape#...every single day.

And I don't know if that is a good thing for America. This has never happened before. I don't know if it will be a good thing or not. I don't know what will take place with a politically impotent Democratic Party. I am not a 100% conservative Republican. I support cannabis legalization. I want to see our prisons reformed to be more rehabilitative and less punitive.

Unfortunately the party I used to support back in 08 doesn't care about those things at all. Things Trump would have probably been willing to work with them on, things Obama should've knocked out of the park. But they have...other...priorities now and have for a while.

Fortunately the Republican party is also transforming thanks to Trump who is also not 100% conservative Republican. So I have hope, a lot of it, but it is still very troubling to see what the Democrats have done to themselves.

Oh goodness... You are quite misinformed. You should just stop before you get embarrassed even more. Broaden your horizons. Visit rantingly.com once a day and see what news wasn't reported on MSNBC.

Well, except the fact that $35 for bail doesn't work that way, and you know it.

You don't hand a cop $35 and get to go.

If you get arrested you go to jail no matter what.

$35 might get you out of it later, but guess what, when you got arrested all of your property was confiscated, and you cannot use that $35 to get out.

Plain and simple, the guy was there with an envelope full of money to pay anyone that got escorted out. Photo's prove it.

Yes, conservatives are anti-progress. That's why conservatives fought to preserve things like slavery and segregation and to stop women and black folks from voting and most recently, same sex couples from getting married.


Uh, that was the Democratic party that didn't want to end slavery or give black people the vote. Republicans did not block Civil Union gay marriages.

The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party




Did you know that the Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, founded the KKK, and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history? Watch as Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University, shares the inconvenient history of the Democratic Party.

So when you voted for Obama the second time, and then voted for Hillary, you were "being a conservative". Amirite?

It's funny, if you read the Snopes article on it (paid protestors), the ruling is "MISCAPTIONED".

And yet, if you actually READ the article, you realize that they CONFIRM the paid protestors. What they try to spin, is that they were only paid in amounts to cover costs if arrested.

I mean, they had video of a gal getting thrown out of the chamber, and then later paid (and it's a pretty distinctive dress, obviously the same woman, etc.)

The article further IMPLIES that these folks give the money back if not arrested. Are they high? Do they really expect us to believe that this is happening?

In addition, all we have is a guy stating the amounts. There's no VERIFICATION of this, and witnesses saw HUNDREDS change hands.

Just another example of why you can't trust Snopes on ANYTHING political.

Well of course they are paid. These losers and their failed ideology can't turn out lynch mobs without money, lies or fake outrage.

Then many of us are *not* "Conservative" by definition. I don't see many who want to preserve much (except the Constitution, for example) as what we have now clearly is not working.

And yes, during the civil war, it was conservative democrats who supported slavery and Republicans (including GOP President Lincoln) who emancipated the slaves and ended the 1st civil war.
