You serious?  fox news?  First of all he is not a politician and he did not call for violence or murder.  Didn't Trump say hang Hillary?  You think he actually meant to put her on the gallows?

If a Democrat strategist is not a politician, does that mean Karl Rove is not a politician, as well?

I Googled this guy's name and came up with pretty much the same story from another half-dozen sources.

""Devine has run for office,""

What do you require to call a person a politician?

"" ?If you want to invite a class war, then you have to expect people to fight back at some point.? The Democratic strategist also wrote on Facebook that he had ?little sympathy? for Scalise because of his lack of support for gun control.""

You are in total denial and in desperate need of professional help.   

And according to your rules, that shouldn't be interpreted as saying you are nuts.   :tongue:

I don't remember any politician calling for violence or murder.  You keep harping about how it is the person and not the tool.  The whole point of restrictions is to keep the TOOL out of the persons possession.
You haven't been paying attention or you're in denial.  A simple google search will pull up dozens of recent quotes of demorat politicians, celebrity millionaire "journalists', actors, comedians and musicians advocating violence against anyone, particularly Trump supporters, that oppose their agenda.  But other people ARE paying attention to those mouths full of violence and hatred, and one of them just shot up a baseball practice.
It is NOT the tool's fault, but the user's. 
Turn blue in the face ranting your dried up old anti-gun rhetoric, it only illustrates the truth better.  And it is flat wrong. 
Winter is coming.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.

Sadly, they have...

"That Scott down there that's running for governor of Florida. Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him." -- Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa

?What we?ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there?s the momentum to be able to do this.?-- Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va

?They?ve marched, they?ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.? -- Former AG (for Barack Obama) Loretta Lynch

For some reason, I'm reminded of the anarchists and their philosophy.  I know, these people are really the opposites of classical anarchists, because they want an authoritarian government.  But their metods somehow remind me of anarchist methods.  The difference seems to be that they want to tear down, destroy, annihilate any view that differs from their own.  It's like Bolshevics who destroyed all that stood between them and Socialism, which was an idealistic name they gave to their brand of despotism.  Once "Socialism" was in control, the ones in power ruthlessly wiped out all dissent.  Those who advocate for "equality" cannot always be trusted.

Hi Folks,

I'm sure most of you already know this stuff, but a quick refresher is... well... refreshing. Please click the links:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals

What was it that Patton said about Rommel? "I read his book"!

Thanks,

That's the Cliff's Notes version of Alinsky's book and gives the highlights pretty well, but I'd suggest actually reading the book -- don't buy it; get it from the library.  The details of his rules will make even a middle-of-the road citizen shudder and a conservative see red.

Please don`t forget Trump on the campain trail - calling for a second amendment solution for Hillary.  Of course he didn`t mean it that way we hope, but then he didn`t clarify it either, and there are nutters out there on both sides.

If you compare the Tea Party movement to the Resist movement, you'll find no comparison as it relates to violence.
Can't argue with that. What I can't understand is how we have come to this point. What ever happened to the voting booth?

What ever happened to the voting booth?

We started handing out trophies to everyone for participation.  Now we have a country full of people who don't understand that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose...if you lose you just play better next time. 

We have a fairly large segment of our population that has come to rely on courts to get what they want when votes don't go the way they like.  They also have no concept of winning or losing or convincing people that what they want is what everyone should want.  Their concept of winning is forcing people into compliance by way of a judge or two. 
?Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.?
