Moar disappointment at every opportunity:

@MittRomney

No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

What is Romney referring to? Trump admin versus Obama's?

Ig, Antifa vs all comers in Portland, where the gay asian journalist fills the Nazi role.

Iggy-

That fits together with this. https://philanthropynewsdigest.org/news/koch-network-reorganizes-as-stand-together from May.

Antifa?
Romney goes beyond being a dupe. He's in the 'thrice is enemy action' category.

Here is the source of the CNN story about Americans and their diarrhea pool parties:

From clarice's link

Still, the combativeness of the last few days alarmed those accustomed to regarding themselves as civilized. Nicholas Kristof tried to explain the savagery by explaining that the natural virtue of liberals had been infected by conservative hate and that consequently, some were succumbing to their baser instincts.

Fuck off, Kristof. You and your ilk have driven this totalitarian clown car every bit of the way and don't to get off it now claiming ignorance. You have to own every damn bit of it.

Captain Hate,

I tried to understand what was happening from what I was seeing on Twitter, but I have not been a follower of the NBA so didn't really know what was happening, although a lot of people were making comments.

Since my grandson works for one of the teams, I try to understand so that I can make conversation. However, I fear I will simply be like any grandma sounding clueless.

Captain Hate,

My sentiments to Kristof exactly.

President Trump received AWARDS from people like Jesse Jackson for his employment and housing fairness. There is a damn picture of him on the internet receiving an award alongside Rosa Parks, for gosh sakes.

And he cannot be charged with anti-Semitism, either, because his son-in-law and daughter are Orthodox Jews. (Not to mention his grandchildren.)

As I said this morning, people like Kristof have created a cartoon character Trump and that is who they campaign against and blame. It's all lies.

So Kamela’s family went out of the family slave business and into what, immigrant indentured servants?

The practice of cultivating, smoking and otherwise consuming the herb (marijuana) is believed to have been popularized by Indian indentured immigrants who began to arrive from 1845. The local name ‘ganja’ is Indian. The concept of ganja as a holy herb is a Hindu one; it is widely used to enhance the religious experience in parts of India (despite government prohibition).

It is very hard and expensive to live in New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo uses his Attorney General as a bludgeoning tool for his own purposes. They sue on everything, always in search of a crime. I even got sued on a Foundation which took Zero rent & expenses & gave away...

....more money than it had. Going on for years, originally brought by Crooked Hillary’s Campaign Chair, A.G. Eric Schneiderman, until forced to resign for abuse against women. They never even looked at the disgusting Clinton Foundation. Now Cuomo’s A.G. is harassing all of my....

....New York businesses in search of anything at all they can find to make me look as bad as possible. So, on top of ridiculously high taxes, my children and companies are spending a fortune on lawyers. No wonder people and businesses are fleeing New York in record numbers!

James D.

Buckeye, it would even happen then.

Outside of the President himself, and probably a handful of people around him, the federal government is 100% on antifa’s side.

And the governments of all the blue states and most of the major cities in this country are, too.

They would all be happy to see any one of us maimed or killer by those thugs. And they’d be even happier to send us to prison for life for daring to try and protect ourselves, or murder us with a SWAT team.

Hyperbole? Tell me, in 2.5 years, has the DoJ or FBI or any local/state law enforcement done one goddamn thing to try and put a stop to antifa’s activities? It’s not like these people are super geniuses. They have loud online presences, and their supporters and funders make no secret of aiding them. If anyone in DC actually wanted these assholes stopped, they would have been by now.

The Mueller report should have been a knockout blow to anti-Trump forces who invested their hopes in the special counsel. With Robert Mueller’s finding that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia to steal the 2016 election and that there was no clear path to indicting the president for obstruction, the enterprise should have shuddered to a stop.
Insinuendo: Why the Mueller Report Doth Repeat So Much | RealClearInvestigations

Saying it once wasn't enough.
Instead, those who were at first dumbfounded by the special counsel’s report have since found reasons to be buoyed by it – by its grudging tone, its sly assertions resembling proof, and its insistence that not being found guilty should not be confused with innocence. If you had to pick a single sentence that captures the style and substance of Mueller’s tome, you’d find it on page 2: “A statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts.”

Democratic members of the House have secured Mueller’s agreement to testify. They will encourage him to offer a sort of informal indictment of the president, something to justify impeachment. Something that can be winkled out of the Mueller report.

Tell me, in 2.5 years, has the DoJ or FBI or any local/state law enforcement done one goddamn thing to try and put a stop to antifa’s activities?

Has ANTIFA officially broken any federal laws yet? Seems to me most of the crimes they have committed fall under the jurisdiction of state/local laws.

So far for the most part all of their anti-American, pro-Communist, criminal activity has been limited in scope. ANTIFA members are getting arrested as evidenced by the mugshots of several of them from their most recent attacks.

One of Trump's biggest successes has been to trigger the Progtard/ANTIFA crowd into publicly exposing their true nature for normal, patriotic, Americans to see. As long as their antics are small scale in nature, IMO they do more harm to their anti-American/pro-Marxist movement than they help. I foresee a lot of pro-Trump campaign ads featuring video of ANTIFA violence leading up the election.

Has ANTIFA officially broken any federal laws yet?

Since everything they do is organized over the Internet, yeah, I imagine they've broken hundreds, if not thousands, of federal laws.

So far for the most part all of their anti-American, pro-Communist, criminal activity has been limited in scope.

Cold comfort to the people who've had their reputations shredded, their businesses trashed, or ended up in the hospital with major injuries. It'll be even colder comfort to the people they murder, which we all know is inevitable.

I foresee a lot of pro-Trump campaign ads featuring video of ANTIFA violence leading up the election.

I don't give a fuck about Trump campaign ads. I would like to see highly-organized and destructive anti-American terrorists - and the people who fund them - PUT IN PRISON rather than being allowed to operate freely and with impunity because their activities provide a possible electoral benefit to the President. I don't consider that unreasonable.

Pinandpuller

Does Stephen know who owned the slave ships?

The story of the ship the St. Louis is perhaps the most poignant and widely known instance of this monstrous policy, but scores of Jews seeking refuge could tell equally appalling tales of grotesque treatment. Along with the trade in African slaves and the institution of slavery and the treatment of Native Americans, America's abandonment of the Jews to Nazi annihilation is arguably the greatest moral failure in its history. This shameful, frightening history has formed, as it were, the sacred moral basis for mainstream Jewish support for generous legal immigration.
