The left is doing ISIS style be headings of Trump and republicans, they openly call for the assassination of Trump, and even have assassination plays with Trump as Caesar.

I'm surprised the mentally left isn't doing more of this.


Can you at least make one fucking sensible post on politics? Majority of political assassination attempts were done by conservatives.. That is a historical fact.

I mean the only area I seen you make good posts is on energy and I don't mean ones that agree with me.

EDIT: We also do not know the political affiliations of this guy. He can be a Republican who hates how his party is running the country for all we know.


He's a Democrat. Now what?

We have got to stop this whole "TRUMP IS EVIL! HE IS HITLER!!! HE SHOULD BE KILLED!!!!" nonsense. It's going to lead to more shit like this.



Most anything that ventures into suggesting the president should be killed gets rejected by most citizens and media outlets. Most Americans are smarter than to conflate criticism of the president with suggestions that he or his supporters be murdered.

I agree. The fear is unwarranted unless you are an illegal immigrant or a member of ISIS. The 4-8 years will be over before you know it. The hyperbole that gets ratings also sends lunatics like this man over the edge.


Yep Rujikin is right on. As citizens we allowed this to happen, by letting our media control us. Time to ignore all American news again and go to BBC, Yomiuri shimbun and Al Jazeera. At least amongst those three I can find some truth.

For those who don't know, an SKS is most definitely not a 'Chinese made AK variant'



They can be made in china, like this experimental type 56 in the middle, but its definitely not a 'AK variant' no matter how you slice it.
Edit
Note the fixed, ten round magazine.
From the way witnesses described him reloading and the fact that it was misreported as an M1 Garand (which also loads with stripper clips, albeit much different ones), I would say the SKS used was a typical unaltered SKS like the one in this pic. Though they can be made to be tacticool and accept thirty round mags.
If I lived in a commie state, I'd go and buy an SKS tomorrow, or three. They were considered 'safe' for even gun hating states due to the fixed mag, but this event may change that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKS
Looking at this, I'm sure they confused several things that seem to be somewhat related. The AK replacing the SKS, the Chinese variant (though apparently there is also a North Korea variant), and the fact that the Chinese are bad at naming things, I guess? They named their AK variant "Type 56" too, it seems.

From the wiki apparently they distinguish the two by calling the AKM a type 56 assault rifle and the SKS a type 56 carbine, but that's beside the point. I'm positive the word 'type 56' was never used by the police or it would be in the CNN article because it would sound extra spooky to noguns.
This is just lazy reporting at best. At worst, intentional to get people afraid and riled up about the 'scary AK variant', which wouldn't surprise me.

While the feet on the resolute desk was a silly thing to complain about, and the dijon mustard and paper clip things sound dubious to me, Obama bowing from the hip to foreign leaders was a pretty much unprecedented thing. U.S. President's don't bow like that to foreign rulers, it's kind of the point. That he did it to Saudi Arabia is rather ironic since the Saudi's had been a Democrat bogeyman during the Bush years.


It's not unprecedented at all.

Even while every other news networks were acting like Obama was the 2nd coming of Christ (replete with halo imagery for most pictures). "Perfect pants crease" - David Frum, "Thrill up my leg" - Christ Mathews, ect, ect.


Obama never tried to ban Fox from the press pool. The one kerfuffle was with a single interview with the treasury department and Fox was permitted, while the White House apologized for the mistake. Trump, by contrast, has attacked the media right from the get go to the point of arguing with reality itself.

While it's true Obama did not exactly see eye to eye with Fox, it was specifically because Fox continued to push the Birther bullshit. Something Trump himself pushed as well. On Fox.

I find this rather odd to unpack. The Tea Party approach to politics has been to elect representatives into office. They've been extremely successfull in that regard. I don't know any instances where Tea Party members have accused Obama or the left of being "Super Hitler" though ANTIFA and several Democrats seems to accuse Trump of this daily. The main complaint of Tea Party members have is the socialism of the current Democrat party. The death of the "Blue Dog Democrats" was proof enough of that. "Punch a Fascist" is a recent thing from the left ironically enough. And "All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." to quote an actual Fascist seems more Democrat than Tea Party to me.


The Tea Party was astroturfed and got away from it's masters. Now the GOP has trouble dealing with it's spawn in Congress.

And yes, Obama was always being referred to as a tyrant, king, dictator, emperor etc that was unilaterally oppressing the American people. Not only by right wing media but by actual, literal members of congress. Cruz, Boehner, Bachman, even Rand Paul. And most certainly by Fox News and other right wing media.

This first "Hitlers" thrown at Obama came before he was even inaugurated.

The Tea Party literally rented a billboard: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/07/13/iowa-tea-party-billboard-compares-obama-hitler.html

Were you really paying attention during the Obama years? Dude was rife with personal pettiness. Returning the Churchill bust, constantly dissing Israels PM and trying to influence their elections. Making the Dalai Lama leave through the backdoor of the WH among trash. A small list of what he did to our allies! What he did to Libya, Iraq, ect, is a goddamn travesty.


Right, and yet despise this supposed litany of pettiness he was and is globally well liked and respected. Seen as having repaired America's international relations in the wake of Bush.

Meanwhile, Trump has shit tanked the US's international reputation more in 100 days than Bush managed in 8 years.

This thread though, is about a psycho who attacked a practice game for Republican Congressmen. With the express desire to kill Republican Congressmen. I hope Democrats realizes how much hate they're causing by calling Republicans Nazi's. Or you might get another Bernie Bro going on a rampage.


You don't get to stoke the fires then complain when its hot. Political violence is not okay but to pretend like this is all suddenly coming from the Democrats is absurdly disingenuous.
