Posted 5/29/17
All because he said he called ICE on a rowdy protest of illegals.

Rep. Poncho Nevarez threatened to 'get' Rep. Rinaldi on his way to his car, going further to say 'you have to leave sometime, and when you do I'm going to get you', to which Rinaldi replied he would shoot him in the head in self defense if Poncho tried.


Don't mess with Texas!

OP is giving the typical fox "news" interpretation which cherry picks parts of a situation to fit a narrative.

Hey if it was ok for Gianforte in Montana to assault a member of the press, then it is ok for this too *derp*

You do realize you're not allowed to assault people and then threaten to 'get them', right?

Well aware of that, but I also don't threaten to murder someone because they plan on trying to fight me. Besides there seems to be more to this story. He is leaving out and changing a certain amount of detail from what I have been reading on multiple sources. Needs to be an investigation on this.

That's not particularly unusual actually. Truthfulness aside, memory isn't as reliable as people like to think, especially when colored by bias and/or high tension. But depending on how far these two guys plan to take this, there could be an investigation regardless.

You can if you fear for your life. Nothing stops someone from carrying out acts of violence like the fear of getting shot.

So what about the right wing guy in Montana who actually physically attacked someone? Did you hear about that? I'm guessing not.

Or else you have a bunch of excuses about how exaggerated it was. Assault is assault. The dude should be in jail.

That moment when you realized the left cant complain about violence in political discourse seeing as they are the ones who normalized it.


Thanks guys
