This is just the beginning. There are tons of guys in South Jersey with Don't Tread On Me and Confederate flags. They feel emboldened since Trump was elected....

David Duke is in Virginia today and said they are fulfilling Trumps promise of "taking our country back"...

It's true, Obama damaged race relations in this country for decades to come. You can tell one group of people they are the cause of the world's ills for only so long until you stir up emotions - many of them ugly and counterproductive - from that group.

There's nothing wrong with being proud of being white and being American. Self-loathing types like Baldridge and Posux probably disagree. It's when that pride for your heritage turns to hatred towards others that it takes a wrong turn.

I have as much disdain for Neo-Nazi groups as I do BLM. They are both vile and pointless. As it is, FAR more white people denounce neo-Nazis than blacks denounce BLM.

It's shocking to see how many people, on both sides, that had helmets on. I'm sorry but if you're wearing helmet at a protest, you're looking for a violent confrontation...

And now a fucking police helicopter just crashed there. This is an ugly day for America...

Agreed. The people who go to these events to shout out the other side have a lot more in common with their foes than they do anyone else.

Exactly. Most (not all) people who attend political rallies or protests, either to support or oppose the message, are just there to cause mischief and shake their fists at the sky. These people have way too much time on their hands and are looking for trouble.

I have never protested a thing in my life.

The funny part is I imagined Badlands when I saw photos of those Polo Shirt wearing geeks with tiki torches.

Proud to be white? Are you insane? What did you do to become white?

Proud to be American is cool with me. Proud of your country of origin, sure.

Badlands is blaming Obama for white nationalism. This is the state we are in.

The fact that we had a black president for eight years and race relations are getting worse and worse is baffling, to me. I'd blame Trump for some of this, but I'd also blame BLM and some of the other riots and bullshit for Trump's rise and the fact that most Americans don't subscribe to that kind of shit.

I can't believe Trump hasn't fixed race relations in his first six months.

I really can't believe that Obama made it worse, over eight years. Just a complete opportunity for leadership lost.

You are even more predictable than me. Where is your spine? Are you following any of the police corruption stories lately? Again, cops have my support all the way but the corruption and brutality cannot be ignored. You act like black people just enjoy rioting.

Obama is an incredible man with high morals and a good family. An outstanding American yet he is imperfect. How you blame him for this and. It closet racist white people who now have a platform is beyond me.

You can't read? I said that race relations got worse under Obama. A black president. How the fuck is that possible?

I didn't blame him for anything going on over the last two days.

The topic wasn't specifically about anything going on now, it was about "race relations".

One of the specific reasons that HRC isn't president is because AA's didn't show up at the polls like they did for Barry and a lot of that has to be hopelessness. What got better for them under a best-case-scenario?

One of the specific reasons that Trump is president is that people were sick and tired of riots and BLM and all their bullshit.

Cops may not be helping, but cops are not the fucking problem in the inner cities.

Antifa has been pulling this bullshit for months, now...where was your post about them?

Hatred begets hatred. The media has everyone whipped up into a fury and the very conscious of the nation is suffering for it.

Do I think Trump and some of his rhetoric is responsible for these recent events? Yes. Do I think he's to blame for shitty race relations and a feeling of hopelessness? Hell no.

People need to stop with the fucking hate. On every side. Stop with the anger with everything Trump does.

A local news station recently posted a story about how Trump was calling for a State of Emergency for opiod abuse...and people were fucking criticizing him for it. What. The. Fuck.

Badlands, what do I personally gain for standing up for what is right? I have tons of cops in my family. I also have lots of liberals. It's a good mix.

But none of you ever talk about the insane levels of corruption and brutality we've seen in this new social media era. Maybe there was something to the inner city's discontent? Just maybe?

You've quick to jump and criticize liberal SJWs, though.

Always one-sided between you two.

I don't feel white guilt. I feel personal guilt for some of the things I have personally done in my life. I hope I am making up for some if it these days.

Who has suggested you NOT stand up for what you believe is right? Heck, keep pointing out the corruption and bad deeds by police - I support rooting out those bad apples as much as you do.

If more of your posts were like the one above, and less calling people you disagree with Nazis, you'd be taken a little more seriously around here.

Whatever you feel guilty about, and whatever steps you are taking to atone for your sins, is between you and your creator. Just don't bring that angry nonsense here and try to demonize everyone you disagree with. It's sophomoric.

In respect to manpower, if the KKK is showing up, (black lives matter as well) all cities should be ready to have a national guard presence on had, it is not going to get any better.

All Guard units have a short call list, and can get the bodies really fast for such a situation.

You do have a good point on rights, but local authorities need to have a plan to get enough bodies onsite, to help with keeping the peace.

I hear you but it angers me that people don't realize their hypocritical ways. Especially you. I never see you commenting on police corruption yet you hate it and want it stopped. Why?

It took me prodding you to denounce OReilly yet you are so quick to denounce many others on the left.

Don't you have any self-awareness about this?

I don't protest. I hate violent protestors whether they are black or white. I hate Pelosi as much as I hate Ryan. I cringed voting for Hillary.

Po,

Surely you understand that your constant criticisms of the right may only mirror those of the majority here.

Outside of Stevie, ovenrat and sometimes Heavy, we don't have many "foaming at the mouth" right wingers here.

This isn't a women's tennis message board. Most of the guys here are going to be conservative types and, yes, you're going to get a lot of the same opinions.

I'm pretty sure that the only thing we disagree on is that police "corruption" that drastically effects 1 out of every 10,000,000 officer/citizen interactions is some kind of rampant plague. I just don't see it and I'm sure it better than it's ever been. This kind of thing will never be perfect when dealing with humanity.

CNN- huffingpuffingcompost headlines:

THREE DEAD AT WHITE RACIST RALLY IN NC. (perfect example of yellow journalism)

Two donald trump supporters wearing MAGA hats, used a military rocket launcher to shoot down a police helicopter KILLING TWO.

unnamed sources witnessed a black presidential limousine pull up to the crowd and pull out something from the trunk. As the crowd of KKK, nazi and REPUBLICAN voters moved away, a man with a MAGA hat fired the rocket launcher striking the heli, in the engine, causing it to crash in a violent explosion.

As cameras moved to the right, you could see the fox news camera crew jumping and cheering the crash, and host Sean Hannity was there shaking hands with the culprits.

The problem is that everyone has to denounce people on your watch. You have this mindset that no one can criticize Person A if they haven't already criticized Person B. In theory I get what you are saying, but it's a flawed logic. It falls into the ugly world of "whataboutisms".

I'm a pretty logical and rational person, and find these neo-Nazis and white supremacists detestable. The majority of prominent conservative figures - social media personalities, politicians, authors, etc - have come out with strong statements condemning the mess in VA. Trump should have condemned the white nationalist movement by name (it still wouldn't have satisfied the rabid left).

Here's why I feel strongly proud of being conservative: when 200-300 racist white assholes come together, 90% of the right strongly denounces them.

When anti-Semites like Keith Ellison, or pro-Sharia Linda Sarsour, or racist BLM or violent Antifa do their thing, the left not only doesn't denounce, they embrace them. Identity politics is a disgusting, dishonest and vile business. There are some bad apples on the right, but the whole left bushel is rotten to the fucking core. How more people don't see (aka admit) that is beyond me.

I always thought that the "Obama won't call out radical Islam" or "Obama won't call out BLM" arguments were stupid, as is this garbage with Trump.

There's a Presidential (and common sense) playbook somewhere that says "fanning the flames of hatred only begets more hatred", so you decry the event, not the perpetrators.

While I do agree that some of Trump's rhetoric has emboldened these assholes, I vehemently disagree with all of those who I've recently seen suggest that this is a resurgence of the Nazi political party...

This is 200 angry, stupid assholes who have been doing these rallies at least every year since forever. The difference with this event is that the media gave it full attention based on their desire to blame Trump for it.

There are literally people on Twitter and FB who are afraid that this is the next big thing and saying shit like "we defeated you once..." and bringing up gas chambers. These aren't Nazis with political pull and an army, these guys have no more power than the KKK or La Raza or the Black Panthers. They're just angry, stupid assholes that 99% of Americans would never support in any way.

I tend to agree with most of this. I do have a little concern that those 200 angry, stupid assholes seem to be becoming a larger and more open fixture at all conservative rallies (we had 70 year old women doing the hell Hitler salute at recent trump rallies here).

Trump's response was less definitive than I would have liked to have seen, and there was way too much spin and deflect from the conservatives in my social sphere (you probably saw my FB feed), but overall I was really impressed with how some of the right spoke out. I don't often like any thing Ted Cruz does, but this time he nailed it, as did many others.

All that said, those folks who required Obama to say "islamic terrorism" rather than "terrorism" should require Trump to say "white supremacists". I'm sticking with "Christian terrorism".... but only cuz it drives my trolly conservative buddies nuts.

Trump names KKK, white nationalists, etc. Doesn't name Antifa, BLM, etc.

Left's response... too late.

My take... late... but he did it and gives a foundation to move forward. Better than Obama who wouldn't say radical Islamic terrorism and Hillary who supported BLMs.

You mean like denouncing “the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”?

You want to compare this to say the Ft Hood shooting and Obama's & the Press response?

Both fringe groups are shitbags, but to try ans claim that the Press handling of these incidents are anything similar, is disingenuous at best.

So Donald Trump shows up 2 days late to the party. TODAY he finally calls it like it is, well as his handlers have told him to read the teleprompter, but why couldn't he have done that on Saturday?

Now I know he signed a bill Saturday in regards to the VA and that's awesome however, he had 2 opportunities to reply to the media asking him to denounce these Nazi fucks and he ignored it.

Also, why was it that during his speech Saturday when all the violence was happening, why the fuck did he have to go and say "how great the economy is doing and unemployment is at all time low?" Is he really that narcissistic that he needs to praise himself even during a domestic terrorist conflict like we had on Saturday?

And lastly, when will he stand in front of the media and answer questions? He gives his speech/talk and runs away and doesn't answer a single question.

OK sorry for the rant. As you can see, in all honesty, I'm not a big politics guy. So when you reply to my questions/comments go gentle. Hike fucked me up years ago and I'm still healing from it.

I always thought that the "Obama won't call out radical Islam" or "Obama won't call out BLM" arguments were stupid, as is this garbage with Trump.





Maybe/Maybe not, but the "Outrage" for ones response (or lack there of) doesn't match the other.

Both fringe groups are shitbags, but to try ans claim that the Press handling of these incidents are anything similar, is disingenuous at best.

My white privilege story for the day.

My wife and I went shopping for flooring yesterday. I gave her my wallet and she put it on her purse.

Fast forward to this morning. She and a couple of friends were walking at the local park. My wallet was still in her purse, in her car.

I drove over to the parking lot to get my wallet thinking that I had the correct key to her car.

I parked perpendicular to her car and try the doors on both sides of the car. Wrong key.

A hefty old white lady was walking past and she gave me the evil eye.

I look over to her and say "you think I'm breaking into this car, don't you?"

She says yes and walks away still looking at me.

I yell over "it's my own damn car lady!"

Bit of an over reaction, but WTF?

As a straight, white male of the middle age persuasion, I must say, the struggle is real.

Again, you dont have to be panty twisted to note that the response in the press, etc is similar. Hence the inconsistent outrage

The media's perception/integrity levels (Congress' too BTW) are lower than Trump's. I don't mind that he walks away. Hillary only took questions on her private jet from hand-selected media. Plus a few of those jackaloons are more so activists than reporters these days.

Agree on the lateness. Agree on lacing in other topics. His delivery has always been poor. Of course, actions speak louder than words... always have and always will.

Not to be anti law enforcement but this event clearly could have gone differently if they had prepared with more resources....

But again, just like the old adage nothing good happens after midnight, nothing could possibly have gone right opposing a White Supremist group...

There is a photo that is circulating of a black police officer who was assigned to protect the White Supremist group. Must have been tough for him but by all accounts professionally did so..

My wife was leaving the tax collector's office today and a guy asked her to sign a petition allowing non-violent felons to vote.
She declined and the guy called her a racist.
Shit like that is why we voted Trump.
As loony as the alt-right is, the far left is no better. They'll throw out that race card any time they don't their way.
That only makes it worse for those who face real racism on a daily basis.
And here's a novel idea: want to keep your right to vote? Don't commit felonies, violent or not.

The photo (if its the one I saw - dark blue uniform, shades, no hat, head down like he's sad?) was from a different rally....

I don't think its totally fair - the comparisons begin made between Ferguson's prep for BLM and Charlottesville's prep for the White power folks - but I would be interested to see if the police presence would look different had it been a black org protesting instead of a white one.

The violent crime rate in Ferguson is triple that of Charlottesville. The violent crime rate in the surrounding area around Ferguson is much higher as well. The might have something to do with the level of response.

I'm interested in following the money on these protests.

Who is funding "Unite the Right?"

Who is funding "Antifa?"

Who is funding "The New Black Panther Party?"

If I were investigating these organizations, that is where I would start.

Who benefits from these protests?

Something about this whole "Unite the Right" thing smells bad to me.

Who is funding them?

Who, exactly, supports this nonsense?





I think the government is so wrapped up in so much bad stuff related to the Clinton Foundation and other globalist causes, that these fringe groups are paid to promote discord and create enough of a distraction to deflect the public away from the deeper issues. And let's face it, they are all fringe groups when you look at their size and influence.

I think Trump was absolutely right with his first statement when he attributed last weekend's trouble to parties on all sides. But it was reasonably contained up until the loon decided to drive his car into the crowd. Until then, it was only morons beating up morons. The young lady's death brought this to a new dimension. I'm disappointed Trump folded to a certain extent.

Let me fix that for you: Trump press conference today was a fucking disgrace

I will use his own words. He actually said this:

" I've condemned neo-Nazis. I have condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee. And you look at some of the groups and you see—you know it if you are honest reporters, which in many cases you are not. But many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So, this week it's Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop? But they were there to protest—excuse me. You take a look the night before. They were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee."

And later, again . . . "You had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group—excuse me. Excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name. George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down—excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington?"

The "people the night before", were out with torches and swastikas chanting "Jews will not replace us" and "blood and soil," a phrase invoking the Nazi philosophy of "Blut und Boden."


What the FUCK is wrong with our President that he has to go WAY out of his way to draw moral equivalence between FUCKING NEO-NAZIS and people fighting the neo nazis??!

I am having a hard time understanding how a group called "Unite the Right" would enlist (in this case) real Nazi's and white supremacists.

What benefit is there to any political party to be tied to these mouth-breathing inbred douche-nozzles?

My spidey sense is heightened.

I don't doubt for a minute that there were actual Nazis at this "rally."

I would like to know who was behind the "Unite the Right" group.

And yes, I find them reprehensible.

I also find anarchists and communists reprehensible.

As should any sensible American.

It's not a false equivalency to place blame on both sides.

It's just having good old common sense and the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time.

The whole Charlottesville "protest" seems awfully convenient and more than a little contrived.

Donald Trump Just Gave the Press Conference of the Alt-Right’s Dreams

by DAVID FRENCH August 15, 2017 5:55 PM

Let’s be very clear about what just happened at Donald Trump’s press conference. He gave the alt-right its greatest national media moment ever. He even called some of them “very fine people.” Don’t believe me? Watch this key statement:

(link): https://twitter.com/ABC/status/8975552675 87461121

Here’s the quote:

  • Quote:
Trump: [Inaudible.] You have some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me — I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.



To understand the significance of Trump’s words, you have to understand a bit about the alt-right. While its members certainly march with Nazis and make common cause with neo-Confederates, it views itself as something different. They’re the “intellectual” adherents to white identity politics. They believe their movement is substantially different and more serious than the Klansmen of days past. When Trump carves them away from the Nazis and distinguishes them from the neo-Confederates, he’s doing exactly what they want. He’s making them respectable. He’s making them different.

But “very fine people” don’t march with tiki torches chanting “blood and soil” or “Jews will not replace us.” The Charlottesville rally was a specific “unite the right” rally that sought to bind the alt-right together with all these other groups. The alt-right wants it both ways. They want the strength in numbers of the larger fascist right while also enjoying the credibility granted them by Breitbart, Steve Bannon, Milo, and — today — the president of the United States.

The most pernicious forms of evil always mix truth and lies. So, yes, there were kernels of truth in some of Trump’s statements. No question there were hateful, violent leftists in Charlottesville this weekend. And on the question of monuments, Trump is right to point out the lack of a limiting principle. We already know that some on the Left have their eyes set on demolishing or removing monuments and memorials that have nothing to do with the Confederacy, but all that pales in importance compared to his stubborn and angry attempts not just at moral equivalence (after all, no one on the Left committed murder this weekend) but at actually whitewashing evil.

What makes this all the more puzzling is that it is so easy to say the right thing here. Do not call anyone at a racist rally a ”very fine” person. It’s not hard to name and condemn an act of alt-right terrorism. It’s not hard to name and condemn the alt-right without equivocation. And it’s not hard to also condemn political violence on all sides. If you think Trump did those things, and sent the right message to the racists, think again. Alt-right Twitter overflowed with gratitude. Richard Spencer declared that Trump “cares about the truth,” and others complimented him for his “uncucking.” This jubilant tweet from David Duke says it all:

  • Quote:
David Duke @DrDavidDuke Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa



Donald Trump loves people who love him, and the vile and vicious alt-right has loved him from the beginning. Today, he loved them right back.

I don't really think that quoting David Duke does much for your argument.

He also lauded Keith Ellison when it was announced he was looking to chair the DNC.

Why? Because Duke believes Ellison is anti-Semitic.

Not fast enough
Moral distinction

Not terrible criticisms. But not that simple either. I find it interesting that sides are oversimplifying a very complex issue. Is it because of extremism/polarization? Is it because folks are incapable of having a constructive conversation? The Twitter affect?

All I know is, Trump should be saying the alt-right too... and he isn't.

On the other side, news is reported without emotion, which like Trump with racism, okays these actions...

The Lincoln Memorial, 911 Memorial, and others have already been vandalized. New York progressives want Theodore Roosevelt's statue removed... next up my agency's building name... and the Nationals bobblehead.

'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' Other factions have sought to remove history too. You know... Nazi's burned books and ISIS topples religious history any chance they get.

I wish people could use words to help solve problems... what a lost art.

I agree with the sentiment that we should denounce this line of thought.

I disagree that violence is the proper method.

These knuckle-draggers actually had a permit to protest.

The ACLU, for cryin' out loud, went to court to protect their right to protest.

The best way to deal with this nonsense is to shine a light on it.

We can't pick and choose which constitutional rights we are willing to support.

I find anarchists and communists reprehensible too.

That doesn't mean I want to stop them from espousing their views.

They have a right to protest.

They don't have a right to resort to violence.

Good stuff Kanrok.

I'm debating (getting it in before I'm mentally drained) this a bit on social media.

Two ways to look at this... there is only one side... or this a simple topic (racism sucks) with multiple facets. I believe the latter is where discussion needs to occur. Oversimplifying it shuts down constructive conversations.

I also like that you used the word "violence." I believe that is a differentiating, observable characterization.

This is the what the thought process of people like Po bring us;

"Auction drafts are a common part of fantasy football, and ESPN's segments replicated an auction draft with a diverse slate of top professional football players," the network statement said.
"Without that context, we understand the optics could be portrayed as offensive, and we apologize."

On social media, reaction to the segment that was part of the 28-hour fantasy marathon was mixed, with many comparing the outdoor scene to a modern-day slave auction.
New York journalist Shaun King tweeted video of the auction with the message, "Apologize now for doing a sketch where you auctioned a black man off to the highest bidder."

So, no. You have no idea what you're talking about and are basing your opinion of Trump's words and the weekend's actions solely on what the ever-inflammatory media is feeding you. Got it.

Yes, I am fucking serious. You waxed poetic about Trump being a liar based on no knowledge whatsoever.

I don't know how many were Nazis. I don't know how many were just southern dudes who like historical statues. I know that there are pictures of Nazis. I don't know that there are pictures of statue dudes. Why? Because I wasn't fucking there because I don't fucking care about that stupid shit.

Nazis can't find violence in an echo chamber. No matter how justified as it's suddenly become now to perpetrate violence upon far right-wing nutjobs, they can't fight people who ignore them. They're nothing more than trolls looking for attention.

Get this right: Nobody ever went to war over the 1% fringe of any population. That's not how any of this works. These are not Nazis. They're racist idiots who call themselves Nazis because that's the angriest, most hateful thing they could come up with. This is not a resurgence of a political party, this is just another rally by racist morons that's been happening for decades, only...this one fed the trolls the attention they desire, so I'm sure they'll be back more often, now.

All the big boys who are pulling the strings from above are starting to see the fruits of their labor. A country increasingly focused on identity politics and extreme ideologies. Combine that with the general apathy of the voting public that we've seen for decades, a dash of pussification here and there, and a healthy dose of progressive PC language and thought and, voila.

Bon appetit

I am having a hard time understanding how a group called "Unite the Right" would enlist (in this case) real Nazi's and white supremacists.

What benefit is there to any political party to be tied to these mouth-breathing inbred douche-nozzles?

My spidey sense is heightened.

I don't doubt for a minute that there were actual Nazis at this "rally."

I would like to know who was behind the "Unite the Right" group.

And yes, I find them reprehensible.

I also find anarchists and communists reprehensible.

As should any sensible American.

It's not a false equivalency to place blame on both sides.

It's just having good old common sense and the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time.

The whole Charlottesville "protest" seems awfully convenient and more than a little contrived.

I also have to laugh at the press driven narrative that that Anti-Anti FA were the innocent victims in all of this






Back in 1977, the Nazi party in Illinois wanted to march in Skokie. To those not familiar with Chicago, Skokie was then, and is now, a center for Jewish culture here. It is a suburb where Jewish immigrants went once they made it to the middle class (the upper class migrated further north to Highland Park).

In any event when the news hit that those miscreants wanted to march there it hit me like a gut punch - and I'm not even Jewish!

Long story short, the Nazi's ultimately won their court case, but decided to take the march to Marquette Park (a place where I played 16 inch softball as a "yute"). Marquette Park is far south from Skokie.

The only reason the Nazi's won the right to hold their cluster fuck at Marquette Park was because the ACLU represented them in court.

The CPD did a marvelous job keeping the Nazi'z and the counter-protesters away from each other. They ultimately made the Nazi's speak behind a stand of trees, and the counter-protesters had to yell and scream behind barricades.

We have the opportunity to learn from history as well.

The best way to deal with this nonsense is to shine a light on it.

Agreed, but the prevailing attitude I'm seeing is that if you DON'T punch a Nazi, you're part of the problem. That's kind'a scary. Remember when the last great man who made huge strides in this exact arena said "I have a dream...that all of you will go right now a smoke a KKK motherfucker right in the head!"?

No matter how you slice this event, the loss of innocent life and a gaggle of fucking idiots screaming their idiot views - the average person (any color, creed, sex or orientation) is still 1,000 times safer running through a Nazi rally screaming "Fuck you, Nazis!" than they are walking through Newark on any Wednesday night. This event wasn't a "start of something" and isn't going to be heiled (WAKA WAKA WAKA) as the beginning of the end, 20 years from now, when we've all been crucified by Nazis.

I did some work for the local ACLU office and while they were all certainly "liberals", they're all also good, honest people who are willing to refrain from the hypocrisy that you see at every turn here (in the US) with regard to political issues.

Honestly, they're better people than me. I'd be telling these guys "Look, man...don't be an asshole...you KNOW this isn't going to end well and people are going to get hurt..."

I'm a big first amendment proponent.

As an attorney I swore an oath to support the constitution.

I take that oath quite seriously.

I may not agree with the ACLU on many stances they take, but I admire the fact that they are consistent in their protection of the first amendment.

Of course not. Violence begets more violence. We are a country of laws. Unfortunately, law enforcement in Virginia was unprepared for what was about to occur. When people show up to a demonstration with bats and helmets, especially when they can expect opposition that will likely be physical in nature, the only realistic thing you can do is separate the combatants. And this wasn't done.

Violence as a consequence of speech? If I say "your daughter has a sweet behind" is a punch in the face not a reasonable consequence?

There is not a yes/no answer to that question. You all stood up for the trump supporters who punched protesters in the back of the head during his rallies, no? was that a reasonable consequence of free speech (don't give me your permit bullshit). Trump actually requested that his supporters "knock out" people voicing displeasure at his rhetoric.......

When a man in a van says to my daughter "get in, I have candy", you better believe violence will occur and it will be the absolute correct response...

It most certainly is. Guaranteed.

If you're insinuating that if I was black I'd be fine in Newark...who is it that's routinely murdered in Newark? Rednecks?

If you're insinuating that if I was black I'd be more likely to get murdered by a crowd of Nazis, well...doesn't it become relative? If you run into a mob screaming at them, the color of your skin goes right out the window. The vast majority of the "counter-protestors" at this last thing were white. The lady who died was white.

My point isn't that it's safe at a Nazi rally, but making this out to be a pivotal point in the history of the US is paranoid, delusional folly. There's been hatred and violence permeating portions of our society forever.

The 2 examples you gave aren't the intent of the first ammendment. Not sure of the incident you are referring to but if it's a protester directly interfering with a political rally, I think that's a pretty big logic leap to get to the government restricting free speech

The Anti-Anti-FA are becoming Brownshirt-esque in their response to speech they don't approve. The police response was very weak and their lack of response condones their response to stifle free speech

Is "I wanna bang your daughter" not speech that I am constitutionally allowed to say? I legally can't act on it (assuming your daughter is below age of consent), but I get to say that shit and then have to bear the consequences of my speech. If a nazi goes into a synagogue and starts yelling about what nazis yell about regarding jews, do you really expect the congregation to stand quietly and listen? It was an absurdist question.

I was thinking about this -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXyHr_Ka7ho

If you see a protester about to lob a tomato - knock them out. That would mean preemptively attacking someone.

I know my examples were not the point, but the point was crazy broad. Its all speech and all protected.

BTW... I think this puts the nail in the coffin that Trump will be gone after four years. I don't even think he'll want to continue.

I'm politically conservative and socially liberal. So I hope he can get through health care, tax cuts, the wall (yup!), trade, etc. At that point, the next President will have to be a bit more socially liberal, which shouldn't be hard.

Anyone else think ol Mitt is attempting to come away looking good in all of this... maybe another run? Not that I'm encouraging that.

I guess now we know why conservative politicians always seem so wimpy and careful not too offend anyone. I would find it frustrating because they would just get demonized by the left anyways and called racist, misogynist, dog hater, etc.

Turns out all along that the left was actually holding back! As far as I can tell every single non conservative politician, celebrity, and journalist have lost their minds.

How many times does Trump have to denounce the KKK to make you happy? Why should he give attention to an idiot like Duke who is only after the attention it affords him? Trump rarely knows when to shut up when he's ahead, but in this case he was wise not to even acknowledge these clowns.

Did I say "violence is never the answer?" I don't think I did.

I can think of tons of examples where violence is not only correct, but legal. for instance, If someone says "I am going to kill you" and they are within striking distance, you can certainly protect yourself, and given the proper circumstances, even lethal force is appropriate.

Your initial answer implies that you believe it is fine for anyone to punch a Nazi just because they disagree with what they say. I disagree. Not on first amendment grounds, but on common principles of criminal law.

The first amendment is not implicated when an Antifa thug throws a rock, a fist or a bag full of piss at a Nazi. That is plain old, every day battery.

When you throw a punch because someone remarks on your daughter's figure, that is not a violation of the first amendment. That is considered a battery. It may not be charged as such, but legally speaking, you take your chances when you act that way. If the government charges you, you cannot raise the first amendment as a defense. (I can conceive of a case where a douchebag yelling that at a girl could be considered an assault, and you may be able to assert defense of others).

When the government stifles speech that is otherwise constitutional in nature (and "hate speech" is protected) then it violates the first amendment.

Not giving a permit to miscreant Nazi's and white supremacists because the government doesn't like what they stand for is a violation of the first amendment. It doesn't mean unfettered access to public land. The government can place reasonable restrictions on the protest. (See, e.g., the CPD when the Nazi's rallied in Marquette Park in Chicago. They were placed in a copse of trees).

I am 100% in favor of allowing both Nazis/white supremacists and anarchists/communists to yell and scream at one another across a wide expanse with the police keeping the peace. Once someone decides violence is the answer, arrest them.

See, it's simple.

It may not be charged as such, but legally speaking, you take your chances when you act that way. If the government charges you, you cannot raise the first amendment as a defense. (I can conceive of a case where a douchebag yelling that at a girl could be considered an assault, and you may be able to assert defense of others).

When the government stifles speech that is otherwise constitutional in nature (and "hate speech" is protected) then it violates the first amendment.

Not giving a permit to miscreant Nazi's and white supremacists because the government doesn't like what they stand for is a violation of the first amendment. It doesn't mean unfettered access to public land. The government can place reasonable restrictions on the protest. (See, e.g., the CPD when the Nazi's rallied in Marquette Park in Chicago. They were placed in a copse of trees).

I am 100% in favor of allowing both Nazis/white supremacists and anarchists/communists to yell and scream at one another across a wide expanse with the police keeping the peace. Once someone decides violence is the answer, arrest them.

See, it's simple.



oh I see - you thought I was addressing you. I was addressing Pete who did in fact say that violence is never the answer. Your "Wow" reposes to my wacky hypotheticals confused me. I think we're pretty much in agreement.

You're conflating words with actions.

So if the Anti-Anti-FA folks didn't show up to Physically confront the Nazi/KKK/Whatever Rally, those folks would have done what exactly?


If the Anti-Anti-FA would have stood guard over the Synagogue like noted in the article posted by CBiLA, they could claim the moral high ground

When are you going to calll out your union brethren for their violent rhetoric and images when the protest a non-union job site?

The physical violence is unacceptable from either side.

Outright ignoring such evil and hate is tacit acceptance. Backing away from evil only emboldens it.

The right thing IMHO would be to show up in greater numbers, with louder voices and make the nazis irrelevant or a joke. Like we've done for years with the a-holes from westboro baptist.

No, you apologist. Today's targets are actual neo-Nazis. Period. End Stop.


Apologist for what? Check out my comment on Page 2.

You are one naive bastard if you think the line will be/is drawn at true "Nazis".

Check out this article written by liberal Peter Beinart (before Charlottesville, mind you). Focus on the first three paragraphs.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017 /...

What happens when someone punches a black dude for wearing a shirt that says "We're full here...go back to Mexico". That's pretty hateful isn't it...is he a Nazi? How about a chick wearing a MAGA hat? Or a Jewish man with a "How does a Muslim male box? Hi-jab" sign? Offensive!

If you don't think things can accelerate quickly, just look at the statues. Yesterday it was confederate soldiers. Today there are already calls for Washington to be removed from Chicago.

The author is right when he decries identity politics. It is a scourge, and our clergy should be railing against it.

The author is also right that Christianity today is generally not very orthodox. It is not particularly Biblical.

I'm fairly orthodox in my views, so I gravitate towards orthodox theologians and clergy. The book referred to by Ulrich Lerner is interesting to me. I also find what Archbishop Chaput has to say interesting.

As an orthodox Catholic, I am in exile. That is what the author says in his book "The Benedict Option." I would say I'm radical, but I like his turn of phrase better.

JU, do you feel super intelligent when you continue to call liberals shitlibs? It's not really funny but do your thing.

The truth is there would have been no violence if Antifa and company didn't show up. But them showing up was the best thing for these nationalists. Any press is good press.

But for many, what they were chanting and saying was enough to make them use violence. I actually don't know what I would do if they marched through my town.

There is something noble about violence in this particular march. Hard and hypocritical to condone violence but these dudes were just asking for it.

What are you not understanding? These nationalists are like Trump and old school Hollywood. Any press is good press. I don't believe that.

Yes, noble violence. How do you think we got our independence? Sometimes it's just the only option.

There are libraries and tons of books to cite history. Statues should be reserved for people liked by both sides. That is subjective of course but hell, I would love a Reagan or Bush statue anywhere.

Normally these insane far-left idiots are just there to start trouble and get on camera.



I was talking to my dad a few nights ago (who is probably slightly more liberal than I am) about this whole fiasco. He despises Antifa, as any sane person can see that they only make things worse. Berkeley is not far from here and these two groups of dumbshits are beating each other stupid up there, and that is fine by me. There is nothing noble about taking a cause such as standing up against fascism and using it as an excuse to douse people with piss and beat them up.

That being said, counterprotesters have to be ready to respond. I don't know how I would react if these people showed up in my town (they probably wouldn't). I would probably want to show up to support and help drown out their hateful chants. But expecting them to act nonviolently is naive, and one should be ready to react.

I would probably wander over and yell at the asshats as well.

If the government does its job there should be no violence.

If the "rally" can't be held safely, then that s a reason to reject a permit.

As I understand it, the city objected to a march and wanted to divert the proceedings to a nearby park that would make it easier to separate the miscreants from the counter-protesters.

That request was denied by the court as being "speculative."

IMHO, the violence could, and should have been mitigated.

I wonder if private riot control companies might not be the next big thing. I'm thinking analogously to what companies like Blackwater do for the military.

If I'm the chief of police in a town and find out there is a rally planned for the next weekend, I have only a few options:
1) Ignore it and not add staff (Charlottesville-esque)
2) Bring in SWAT and a neighboring forces at overtime pay rates ($$$)
3) Outsource the operation to professional "peacekeepers".

I'm betting at you could create a network of well trained ex-military and police folks, create a minimal training program that leverages the existing expertise but proceduralizes tactics, and have them ready for relatively quick deployments. These protests are generally on weekends, so it could be a part-time gig for the employees. At $80/hr you could scalp $10/hr+insurance costs and probably still pay your people $65/hr or so. And require the employee to maintain their equipment on their own dime.....

...I'm sick of working for a living, get-rich-quick schemes are all I think about.

Charlottesville officials really fucked things up before this thing even got started. Same shit in Berkeley, the PD just watches as these two groups maim each other.

The film is indeed frightening, and goes a ways to dispelling the "few bad apples" narriative, IMO. As someone of Jewish heritage, I would be terrified if that shit came to my hometown.

Do you honestly believe that any violence would have been perpetrated here if there were no counter-protestors? Takes two to Tango, eh?

This is where I'm accused of being tolerant of these assholes, which just isn't the same thing. If I'm in a bar and three guys stand up doing Nazi shit, I'm going to stand up and tell them to shut the fuck up or get their asses kicked. But, they're not a mob.

As we've repeatedly seen in almost every angry protest by every group in the last 25 years, these things almost always turn violent when there's a mob situation. You can't reason with a mob. It's lose-lose. Just treat them like trolls: Ignore them and they'll go away. If they get creative and start causing damage or acting criminally, it's much easier for cops to manage one side than two.

If the protesters show up looking for a fight and there are no counter protesters or the counter protesters are peaceful, I don't think its likely that the protesters will not find an outlet for the pent up aggression.

In this case, maybe a synagogue or mosque gets burned?

Here in Portland, after the election the protesters took out their frustrations on various local businesses. I'm not saying that a crowd of pro-trump folks would have prevented that, but in the time since there have been no one-sided protests (that I'm aware of) and no vandalism to speak of.

have they? In areas that they are unpopular in? I don't think they really have, but I'll keep looking. I tried (briefly) googling and came up empty. Though I suppose the burning obama effigies could have been considered white-y rallies....

AntiFa is a symptom, the malady is the ever increasing racial, economic and moral divide in this country.

I don't want to say Trump is THE difference, but I doubt this stuff would be happening at the same frequencies under HRC. Trump's various platforms that are seen as anti-minority (borders and travel bans) and his implied-but-unproven chumminess with white power bullshit is empowering those people looking for an excuse (this is data driven, not supposition) to start shit and to over react to all issues of race. I think this shit was going to come to a head eventually. Trump's presidency may be accelerating it, but he's not single-handedly conjouring it from nothing.

Antifa isn't just in the business of attending white supremacist and alt-right rallies like this one. They quite simply are out for anyone who has any positive things to say about Trump. The Berkeley riots wasn't an attack against white supremacist or far right wingers. It was an attack against a Jewish gay conservative who only dates black guys, who has in the past even sympathized with black lives matter and who is loathed by the alt right frontman Richard Spencer. Antifa are anti-conservative extremists who are looking for a fight wherever they can get it.

It looks like finally they met their true equals on the other side and are like rats running down a sewer you catch up with their counter-claque.

This is not what I would call a sensible response to what you cleverly call "anti-minority legislation." If this is the kind of response that people are conditioned to expect when speaking about things like immigration reform or National Security, then authoritarianism really isn't that far down the road.

As for me, I like what Winston Churchill said. I prefer to keep my politics between the Arctic and the Antarctic.

I've always personally felt the same way about the alt right. It should be just as simple as condemning both sides.

I don't even really know what hard right means anymore. I personally describe myself as a libertarian. I'm reading a book on Nazi Germany and about 500 pages in, I noticed that hard right met in those days Pro-monarchy and that the majority of the people who are deemed hard right on this board would probably today fall into the classical liberal tradition of democratic governance that Hitler and Paul Von Hindenburg despised. It's because of this that term is like racism, extremism, and all the families of -phobia, -geny and -isms are losing their force of meaning.

I say "hard right" in a mostly trolling manner.

I think of "right wing" as supporting small gov and fiscal responsibility with little to no social convictions

I say "hard right" when you get into social issues (pro-life, anti-gay marriage, etc) and things like immigration.

Far-right, Alt-right or extreme right wing is when you get into social issues and support social platforms related to color, sex, creed..... i guess asshole is another term for this group.

I think I've probably used hard right a few times for the last group.... thats mean of me.

I never really gave much thought to who constitutes the "alt-right." Ben Shapiro was on the radio yesterday. He basically hates the alt-right. They were responsible for some pretty awful anti-Semitic attacks against him on social media.

He claims they are not at all conservative in the classic sense, and that they have no real love for the constitution.

Shapiro is a constitutional conservative. He is very bright and articulate. I don't know much about him, but he seems like someone that gets it.

I've started listening to his stuff a little more, he has a pretty fresh take on stuff and occasionally makes me re-think my positions. I fully agree that the right is a range of groups that don't necessarily have any overlap with each other. The left is the same. Not all of us are looking for a nanny state. Personally, I have more commonality with libertarians and conservatives of a purely economic nature than I do with the occupy crowd.

The alt-right definition varies based on who's using it.

For Dems it's anyone that doesn't agree with them, where they can call them Nazis

Imo is made up of Libertarians, constutional conservatives, tea party, etc (basically non-sell out GOP)

If the Alt-right is the Libertarians (economic conservatives) and the Constitutional folks (social conservatives), what does the rest of the right consist of? The RINOs?

Also, if the ALT isn't the fringe hate groups, where do you put the portion of the right who is primarily concerned with racial and sexual politics? i.e. the white power folks and the gay haters? They vote conservative, so they need to go in the tent somewhere don't they?

I hate the occupy/nanny state folks, but I recognize that they are probably all dems.

And you all group the anti-fa in with the left (ok), but since they are generally anarchist, its bit of a reach to call them democrats....... but i recognize they are under the lefty tent.

RINO's, religious conservatives, Nationalists

FA Leadership is anarchist, it's ranks are made up of useful idiots - young liberals

IMO anarchists associating with groups that are selfdefined by identity politics seems like an odd match

good question! I'm assuming the white power folks aren't exactly pro-gay rights. The nazi-loving groups definitely aren't. Most sects of fundamentalist christian groups are not pro-gay rights with their level of resistance varying... I'm sure there a some independent churches around that are aggressively anti-gay. I don't believe there are really any christian orgs that haven't resisted gay equality to some degree (think marriage as a minimum).

I think it's total bullshit how the liberal media is flaming racial tensions. Donald Trump has done zero that would indicate to me he's a racist.

I saw a picture the other day of a leftist using an aerosol can as a flame thrower against a guy holding a confederate flag in Charlottesville. There was violence from both sides. That's not Trump endorsing nazis. Total fake news.

Unfortunately, Democrats have deluded themselves into believing that the parties switched platforms.

Just like Oliver Stone deluded himself in his documentaries by ignoring that liberals and communists were responsible for giving the USSR nuclear secrets and believing that Henry Wallace would have been the greatest president of all time.

Yes, I am over-simplifying, but this is the status of race in America. Even the sun and the moon are racist!

Why is this "opinion" even being considered? If this is where academia is today, I'm glad I graduated when I did.

It's articles like this that create imaginary injustices feeding the victim mentality. Why try when when Whitey and science are against you?

Honestly these actions are considerably more racist that what the KKK is doing. You have to wonder what motivates outlets like the Atlantic to post such drivel.

The article uses the eclipse to point out the history of race in the US.

Read it and make up your own mind.

From my perspective, it underscores how nutty people have become on racial issues here.

It does not make the claim that the eclipse is racist, but it might as well.

If the left continues to make identity politics the basis of their platform, we can be assured that dems will continue to dig themselves a hole.

BL - sorry wrong righty.

JU - using the path of the eclipse to highlight some of our less proud moments with respect to race is not racist. Its odd, its a weird idea of melding science and history... but I really don't see it as racist, I'd love to hear how you came to that idea..... the words "math" and "education" don't even appear in the article, do they?

Its funny how we always find what we wanton find in these things...

So correlating 2 completely unrelated things is what?

It's the antithesis of science.

Didn't say the article dealt with math, rather it's another example of attempting to make math and science he tool of the white devil.

IMO being told that you can't compete due to stupid shit like this science and math being racist is much more damaging in whole than protesting a statue removal.




BL - sorry wrong righty.

JU - using the path of the eclipse to highlight some of our less proud moments with respect to race is not racist. Its odd, its a weird idea of melding science and history... but I really don't see it as racist, I'd love to hear how you came to that idea..... the words "math" and "education" don't even appear in the article, do they?

Its funny how we always find what we wanton find in these things...



The fact that someone even took the time to create and write such nonsense is absurd. I opened the link and then shut immediately after a brief skim. I found it embarrassing, quite frankly.

Wow, I did not take any of that from the article. weird. I really didn't get any accusatory tone out of that.

I agree on the comparing of unrelated things.... I think the author tried to be poetic.....

Here are my comments jotted down as I watched (most of) the news conference (it got pretty repetitive, but I got to 10mins watching start through):

His comment about waiting for the facts is fantastic and perfect except for the fact that it flies directly in the phase of his usually instantaneous finger-pointing twitter tirades every time he sees something he doesn’t like elsewhere (no links, the examples are legion). Generally if there is a chance an event was committed by brown folks he calls out Islamic terrorism inside of 5 minutes.

The follow up questions are bullshit, Trump rightly and correctly addressed them.

Million jobs…… is this a fact? The bragging of his accomplishments as POTUS needs a thousand asterisks’.

Strawman argument on McCain…..

Now he is asserting the lefties attacked the righties…. Do we KNOW who attacked who? I think he’s forgotten about the facts again. Now the permit is important.

Splitting the group carrying the swastikas into Nazis and good people is concerning to me. I don’t see how a “good person” can stand with Nazis over a statue. That seem dumb

More left attacked the Nazis….. blame on both sides….

Into infrastructure and its McCain’s fault already…..

Jobs will fix things…. I can get with that.

In the end, I don't really care about anything. I don't buy his statement about wanting the facts before commenting, thats not his MO. I'd like to know if the lefties ACTUALLY attacked the Nazis. Not suggesting its impossible, I truly don't know. And I'm sorry, but attacking Nazis is something I can get behind. Free speech doesn't mean free from consequence as we have discussed at length. This country gave up a ton to defeat Nazism once, fuck those who try to bring it back.

Now the non-nazi in a crowd of Nazis. I can see that, but if you are not a nazi, and you are appalled by their ideals - as you should be if you are a good person - you probably shouldn't be standing with Nazis for something as trivial as a statue. Though in contrast to a lot of the confederate monuments, this particular one (IMHO) does not have the questionable history of many of the others.

The city of Charlottesville has some 'splainin' to do.

Why, on earth, did they allow the armed Nazi miscreants to walk down a street in close contact with a screaming mass of armed anarcho/communist miscreants?

What did they think would happen?

As I pointed out before, there are better ways of handling these "events." See, e.g., the CPD in 1978 when Nazi miscreants were able to spew their racist drivel in Marquette Park away from a group of people who were rightly angered.

The police in Phoenix appeared to handle the situation there appropriately.

There is a concerted effort by the left to use these anarcho/commie tools to foment violence. There is no way this will not backfire.

I am a tad bit perplexed and more than a little bit suspicious about the way Charlottesville was handled.

Obama very slyly called on the DoJ to investigate the Ferguson riots. And even though "hands up, don't shoot" and many other points of contention were found to be lies the commission was still able to find cause in Ferguson's policing to justify a number of policy changes.

Compare the situations in Charlotteville and Boston, for that matter. AG Sessions should convene a group to investigate what happened in Virginia and at least force McAuliffe to face the music.

Say it with me:

The violent Nazi miscreants are culpable and so are the violent anarcho-commie miscreants. The city is culpable for letting it happen.

Oh shit, I thought you were joking. Your post only mentioned "armed " and "violent" in association with the antifa, while labeling the nazis with a charming term like "miscreants".... I thought you were mocking the various types of framing that are going back and forth for each side's posture and role in the festivities.

Not really, but I see the thread they're grabbing and running with.

His initial response was horrible and I think totally inappropriate - the white supremacist sites celebration of it is all the proof you need. The only right answer was to condemn the Nazis. Blaming everyone for the situation could come later, but the Nazis had the bodycount and the horrible message. I see that as a mistake rather than "proof" that he's a Nazi.

His 3 day later condemnation of the white power folks was great - from the basis of the words he said - but he looked like someone had a gun to his head when he said them. Again, not proof, but I kinda see where the media was coming from.

Since then I think he's been very consistent and correct. No doubts about him (personally) with respect to his actions on race. The media needs to let it go. I'mont saying he won, but this issue has been beaten to death, everyone has made up their mind one way or the other, now its just high pitched screeching.

I think the only way Trump truly sheds the racism stuff is to get rid of the many tarnished people he surrounds himself with. He has said to many questionable things in the past, and there are the questions of a familial relationship to the Klan, to allow him to tread near the line on this issue. Thats a assuming he truly cares about the image he is portraying on the issue.

This might be his birthier moment. Obama could have released his long form BC right at the beginning and pretty much killed the story... instead he let it become the identity for many of his detractors to the point where - for a lot of us - if someone is identified as a birthier, their words immediately become conspiracy theory. Trump could ignore the issue and - should nothing truly damning ever show up - perhaps make it into a joke.

See, you're pulling the "gun to his head" that the media did and I don't see that at all.

I agree that Trump's actions have emboldened a terrible fringe group full of delusional morons, but can you argue that Obama did the exact same shit (not specifically calling out) with regard to "radical Islam" and black power groups that would have felt the same way about his lack of criticism for some of the more violent BLM rallies?

It's the same arguments every 4 years. Yeah, black racists and brown racists support Democrats. White racists support Republicans. That doesn't mean that Republicans are inherently white racists or that Democrats are inherently black or brown racists.

Trump should send the DOJ after the Nazis and KKK and run up their asses with a microscope and lock away as many as they can - all very publicly.

I'm making a sincere effort to NOT follow the media chastising of trump for everything, but I watched the monday comments from him live (or at least on tape before reading the reviews) and I honestly thought his demeanor looked strained. No matter though, my opinion and yours do not have to be the same.

The rest of your post I agree with entirely. Particularly that last sentence. However, if he did that, the media would have to go back to focusing on taxes, money laundering and piss porn..... so maybe the tentative denouncement of the Klan is serving a purpose?

Did you honestly not think his demeanor was a little different than usual? Maybe you didn't see it as "gun to the head", but there was something out of the ordinary there, no?

As for Russia, I really do think there is some shady shit there, and I feel that it is well hidden and will take time to build the case. I think they investigation is doing that. I think that we will know when they are about to pull the trigger on something when we see DJT initiate a military conflict somewhere. I may very well be deep into conspiracy land, but I'm ok with that. Im also completely OK with Trump being exonerated and becoming the greatest POTUS ever. I watched the right attack BOs every move, whether right or wrong, for 8 years. It was counter productive then, and its counter productive now. I do not want to be the asshole cheerleading the country's failure.

OH! I also don't really know if the shady shit I'm envisioning rises to the level of impeachable.

Given what I know about the laws (little to nothing), it seems like the laws around collusion etc are antiquated and toothless. My perfect ending (assuming I'm right and there is fire to accompany the russian smoke) is the nation realizing that our POTUS made a deal with the devil and it was perfectly legal and we have to fix the laws so it doesn't happen again. Impeachment is a huge mess and I expect would derail the country for a time. We don't need that.

You don't think the NSA or CIA would have monitored any communication between anyone and Russia, especially a presidential candidate, that would have carefully surfaced, by now?

I think those agencies have plenty of intercepted communications. I think that is in the public domain at this point. What I don't think exists are laws that make any of this illegal.

What I think is missing is one of 3 things:
1) the "Quo" in the Quid pro quo in relation to Putin performing whatever he performed.
2) the dirt that russia has on Trump which would compromise the presidency
3) clear evidence of money laundering through the Trump corp

And I really don't KNOW that any of these things exist. Thats what the investigation is for.

The investigation is kind of ass backwards.

Usually investigations begin with a crime, then they investigate.

Normally you don't start an investigation with a goal of finding a crime to prosecute.

On a separate note, my old boss turned down $22M from the City of Chicago, went to verdict and the jury awarded $148M.

Those are some big balls.

Ha, believe it or not, a Polish lady who lives the next town over from me - a nondescript mill town named Chicopee. Legend has it so many Poles settled in Chicopee after landing in NYC because they mistook the name for Chicago, their real destination. It's actually the type of place Po would hang out. A fair amount of white trash and ghetto, clubbing types.

I hope to hell this lady got an attorney and some sort of private security. Lots of crazies out there.

Ironically he once asked me if I'd rather make money through my own efforts or in the lottery.

He said he'd rather make money through his own efforts.

I chose the lottery.

He has much bigger balls than me.

I remember when he turned down $10M on a case. Ended up settling for $12M.

I'm much more conservative.

Yes. You read that correctly.

A student group says USC's "white" horse mascot is a "racist" symbol.

This comes on the heels of ESPN taking announcer Robert Lee off of a broadcast of a Virginia football broadcast. Lee is an AMERICAN who happens to be of Chinese derivation. He is bilingual and speaks Mandarin.

Not that they wouldn't exist - Portland has had these folks for all of the years I've lived here - but they would stay quiet. The nazis provide the stimulus to activate the antifa in a larger way, and in turn the nazis get louder in response to the rise of the antifa. This is all fucking dumb.

There wass a coffee shop in Portland called the red and black cafe. It was proudly anarchist. I think there was no real "staff" someone would just work the till for you if you went in (I never did) and the food was all vegan (which is why I never went in). They also refused to serve cops. Not because they were "pigs" but because they were representative of the "oppressive" state. it closed in 2015. People thought they were another quirky Portland novelty, the thought talk and "dangerous" ideas. Now those same folks are smashing windows and attacking "free speech" rallies.

without the nazis I'm sure they would go back to being occupy or whatever.... wouldn't that be a big improvement?

Why do you say that?

I can’t tell what, if anything, the decedent had in his hand when he turned around.

Can you?

Would it matter to you if he had a weapon?

I don’t know if he did, but it would be a factor to take into consideration before I could announce “baldly” if you will, that it was “murder.”

The reports say that he had a knife and turned to threaten the officers with it. People who can better decipher all the noises in the video suggested that he even said “I’ll cut you”.

Not murder, luckily, because he wasn’t able to cut an officer.

Just reacting to what I saw on the short clips that were available, it looked extreme to me. That is just me. I know/knew a few cops. Some were very close friends. Others I had little respect for. So I have my own bias.

First reaction to him fleeing was to draw guns. Why? That appears to be instinctive and probably influenced by training.

Did it have to go down that way? It's not up to me to decide.

Would appreciate other interpretations, preferably greater than one word in length.

Does the actual story and facts-of-the-case state that he did have a knife that was recovered from the scene?

Dude turned toward the officer in a menacing manner, knife or no knife. Like I said, if he’d have been beelining away from them and had been shot, this would be a gross misconduct on the officers part, BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED AS SHOWN ON A FUCKING VIDEO.

He was stopped for riding his bicycle in an unsafe manner, certainly well within the legal authority of a police officer. He was being arrested for numerous outstanding felony warrants, in other words he was a fugitive. He resisted arrest, clearly. What is not clear from the video is whether or not he had a weapon in his hands. A knife was found at the scene and I believe the statements of the officers indicated he was armed with a knife. Now, you can certainly believe that there was no knife and that the officers planted it and provided false statements but there is absolutely no evidence of that that has come forward yet.

I'll preface this by saying that I'm assuming that he had pulled a knife on the officers. Why do the majority of family members involved in police shootings sound stupid?

His sister said the officers were younger and could have tackled him, LOL What? How about following the law?

Amazing that they all want justice for him, but he was homeless and they couldn't be bothered with giving him a place to stay.

I'll add one thing, there were 2 officers working on handcuffing him, they did a pretty poor job in controlling him and he shouldn't have been able to flee.

Thanks for your response Ed. It is possible to have a different point of view and ask questions.....

I personally don't see a knife. Seems like a pretty big knife to be in his shorts. Who knows what was in his backpack...

Is there video/dash cam evidence of him riding erratically?..Pulling a guy over for missing a light on his bike? Really?...

Was the guy a criminal?..Yes.

Should he have run?. No....

But he if he didn't present a knife like the officers claim, I'm just not sure it warranted a death sentence..

I agree. There would have to be a knife or something the officer could reasonably believe was a knife. In this case the officers stated they found a knife and that he was armed with it, so if that’s not true, not only is it a bad shooting but that officer, and most likely other officers planted evidence and provided false statements, felonies on their own. However, I haven’t heard of any evidence indicating that this happened.

Pulled over for having a tail light out on his bike. If that isn't profiling I don't know what is...


Profiling people with dangerous, broken down, autos that shouldn't be on the street ? Probably guilty as charged.



He was on a bicycle....


Much better.

Only 100000 times easier to get your own ass killed.

Definitely hate on the cops for stopping a guy, trying to help him not get dead.






who then insists on getting dead anyway.

Agree JU. If this was a friend of mine, my response would be “fucking idiot”, not “he was murdered!”. That’s the difference in my “culture”.
