Yes, much the same way legalizing same-sex marriage led to all those human-animal and adult-child marriages you said we were headed for.

 

Conservatives love their slippery slopes. For people who look backwards they sure love to tell us what's coming next.

yes, looking backwards to reasoned moral thought which will always be anathema to unrestrained sexual licentiousness. :P

NipkowDisc--AGAIN, Your selective memory is showing. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson helped BUILD America.  Robert E. Lee FOUGHT to DESTROY America.  If you don't understand the difference,  retake second grade history.

what about you? you think those who are getting on the band wagon about confederate monuments are going to make that distinction???

 

to be clear, you're saying that liberal democrats will not get behind any popular movement to remove any monuments honoring those two? you're quite sure of that, are you? any call to remove or tear down the washington monument and the jefferson memorial will be almost immediately summarily nipped in the bud by liberal democrats?

 

right? liberal democrats would not allow any calls for such a thing to gain any popular traction before speaking out against it, now would they?

 

now if maxine waters or cory booker were to sound off favorably about it, I would discount them from most other democrats them being such sick hateful individuals.

:D

this is what is afoot. after the left gets through with Robert E. Lee they will a be a coming for washington and jefferson. not today or tomorrow because they couldn't get away with it right now...but they will. one thing leads to another. they go after the founding fathers then of course comes the constitution and bill of rights. this is what it's always been about with liberalism. a godless amoral neutrality and a bureaucracy favoring socialism. the end game for them.

if the left is so desperate now that all they can think to do is ignite a social war using charlottesvile as the catalyst then let them.

 

the left would do well to remember that donny will support the police to quell civil disorder so scofflaws and scalawags should just hold their water.

yes, they will target washington and jefferson saying that since they were both slave owners, they were evil men...period! maybe when a large portion of even mainstream white America hears the unbelievable. advocacy for the tearing down of the washington monument and jefferson memorial from the mouths of schtootzes like cory booker, they will finally begin to smell what conservative white americans have been smelling for decades and hopefully, they won't like it very much

stupid, stupid mainstream media by fixating on charlottesville they have nullified the russia story.
 
they also fail to give trump proper and deserved credit for kim jung un backing away from his guam threat.
 
donny's still got the game.
 
they can't phase him. they just look desperate trying to.
 
the mainstream media is a poor impulse drive to his powerful anti-matter nacelles.
:D
 


Donald Trump has been successful in his attempts to divert attention away from the Russian investigations periodically, as he did stoking fears of nuclear brinkmanship with a madman on a par with him, and with his tacit and later blatant sanction for the White Nationalists.

Yes we all fall for it, all except Robert Mueller and his staff of investigators.

Uh,  why do you think it is the FIRST amendment?    :blink:

 

Oh,  and Antifa does advocate the use of violence to achieve their mission. 

Whatever its place, the idea that it is comparable to having

one's head cut off is still silly, but that's how political cartoons

work. I don't really care if they advocate violence, just arrest

them if they commit it.

Preventing somebody from giving a speech is like cutting

someone's head off? But cartoons do rely on exaggeration. 

The only DHS I could find which lists Antifa as a domestic

terrorist organization is the NJ DHS. And I never knew that

New Jersey had its own DHS. I guess anything that gets

between Christie and the buffet table is labeled as one.

Donald Trump's die-hard supporters show no signs of straying

 

NEW YORK (AP) -- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump's loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself.

 

Even as Trump's zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.

 

"He has done nothing to turn me away from him," said Patricia Aleeyah Robinson, of Toledo, Ohio.

Robinson is black and her support of Trump has put her at odds with many in her life, costing her friendships and straining family relationships.

 

But the 63-year-old retired truck driver sees the controversy over Trump's response to Charlottesville as being driven by those seeking to disrupt his agenda and push backers like her away. She said she knows he pays no deference to racists and feels he is the only president who has ever spoken directly to blacks. She admires his refusal to sugarcoat his beliefs

 

Three hundred miles south in a Charleston, West Virginia, shopping mall, Joyce Ash took a moment to ponder Trump after buying a dress Wednesday to wear to the funeral for her husband of 33 years, who died of pancreatic cancer.

 

The 71-year-old woman summoned nothing but support for the political novice who led her to ditch her lifelong support of Democrats. She recalled sitting up all Election Night to watch Trump clinch the win, and said nothing since made her reconsider her vote.

 

"Let the president do his job instead of trying to take him out every time you turn around," Ash implored. She didn't follow the back-and-forth over Trump's statements on Charlottesville but saw no reason to question him: "I believe in Donald Trump, I really do. I believe that if they would just give this man a chance, the economy, everything will start going better."

 

Though images of Nazi flags and men in white hoods sickened many Americans, the president's most ardent champions saw no reason any of that should change their feelings for Trump.

 

"You know why it doesn't bother me? Because he is everybody's president whether you like him or don't like him. Everything he does, he's doing it for our country," said Patsy Jarman, a 70-year-old retired factory worker in New Bern, North Carolina. "And if you don't like being here, you need to leave."

 

Such enthusiasm may be unsurprising in some ways. Trump himself boasted last year he "could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters."

 

Polls showed his approval ratings dipping even before this flare-up, and now some commentators are proclaiming a historic low point and late-night comedians have turned serious. But many Trump voters interviewed Wednesday showed no sign of moving away from him.

 

In Florida, 50-year-old Steven Damron of Spring Hill said the president handled the Charlottesville situation well, and he agreed with Trump that "both sides" were to blame.

 

In Iowa, Branden Nong, 35, of Waukee said that while he wished the president was more careful with his tweets or in his criticism of fellow Republicans, his vote was driven by economic issues, and he has been happy with Trump's performance.

 

And in Pennsylvania, 46-year-old substitute teacher Julie Horrell of Mohrsville said: "I am sticking by the president. It's early in his term yet. He needs to get the time to dig in his feet."

 

Julie Brown, a 42-year-old real estate agent in Gilbert, Arizona, accused the media of twisting Trump's statements on Charlottesville and said local officials did a bad job preparing for the protests. But she remains fully behind a president she sees as exactly the unpolished, authentic leader that the U.S. needs right now, and thinks of how her 4-year-old son will someday learn of this time.

 

"He's going to be reading in a textbook one day about the good and the bad that this president is going to do," she said, "but I hope and I believe it's going to be more good."
