Brandon your use of “Progressheviks” reminds me of this video. Free yourself from using stupid words and become a less dangerous and more free person.

This is an excellent video, thank you for posting it.

Right-wing twitter is all abuzz about this incident today, with a great many saying "the right never runs over people with cars," and it occurred to me that the immorality of stupid, as explained in the video, was on full display.

We can do this all day and you will lose on the political violence argument.

I want to post out one is “Charged with” and one is “Actively doing it” per the picture.

you’re right, liberals will lose on the political violence argument every time. They can’t compete with conservatives when it comes to violence, conservatives are pros while liberals are playing tiddlywinks.

What was the political affiliation of the person who recently threatened to bomb a children's hospital? Oh right, Republican. Who was the kid who shot up a black church? Republican.

Here are 54 cases just invoking Trump. Plus like 8 or 900 involved with the insurrection?

Ah, but it gets better. Turns out the driver was just a drunk who hit and killed the kid, and then made up the whole "Republican extremist" nonsense. There was no political argument, none of that. All BS according to the police. Can't wait to see how this develops.

OP gave TWO examples, then tries to make both of them some kind of idiotic 'gotchya' moments. Also claims to be able to, "do this all day", even though as @Vic pointed out...one of those two examples is completely BS/false flag by a drunken idiot.

He will undoubtedly not find any further examples of his claim, and will proceed to disappear from (another of) his own BS thread.

Interesting argument. Vic (who you were replying to) is what? Center left?

You're saying that the center left is more violent than the right? The right that recently tried to overthrow democracy in your country?
I'm a classical liberal for the most part. I tend center-right on most economic issues, center-left on social issues. I love Locke and Jefferson and am for political equality and individualism. I'm also for progress, but I acknowledge the role that conservative caution plays there.
Unfortunately, according to the crazed right-wing in America today, that's embraced Christian Nationalism and authoritarianism, calls the Establishment clause in the 1a "a joke" and rejects the 14a, that lumps me in with all you leftist commies.

I’ll wait for a better source but if true, lol, brandonbullshit’s mind will implode. I’m guessing he’ll stick to the original claims and just lie about the story.

The story in the OP has been front and center in MAGA world for 2 days. Every outlet has run it, every MAGA politician and mouthpiece has tweeted about it, they're comparing the poor dead kid to Ashli Babbitt, blaming it on Biden and calling for civil war, and it's all BS.
Like I said, I can't wait to see how it develops. I suspect the MAGA puppetmasters are going to try to bury it without retraction in hopes the faithful don't find out it was fake.

The conspiracy theorist in me says something is really trying to start that US civil war. Considering the shit show that is the Russian war on ukraine, I have my suspicions on where it’s emanating from. But that’s just my feels talking;)

People who can be made to believe anything -- except for the possibility that they might be wrong -- are the most dangerous of all.

Just look at what the right-wing has become today. They have completely attached their egos to their political identity and are convinced that they are right in every way. They've rewritten history such that there were no right-wing gangs involved in the 2020 protests, J6 was actually antifa, Hitler was a leftist commie, and slavery ended in 1776. Everything they say and do is patriotic and for love of country and Constitution, and anyone who disagrees in even the slightest is a violent leftist who needs to be executed as a traitor in the name of freedom.

It is an extreme level of groupthink self-delusion and identity politics that America has never seen. They will not self-reflect when they lash out.

yes, just like things in the bible, they pick and choose what they actually want to follow. they cling to that 2nd amendment as if god himself wrote it, but everything else? well...that's just bullcock.

Few christians are capable of self reflection. It's more about judgement of others.

It is unfortunate IMO that the Christian Right has established themselves as the one and only face of Christianity today such that the liberal and progressive Christianity has been almost completely obscured. I believe this is the reason why Christian numbers are shrinking. The youth see the unchristian hates and lies of conservative christianity, the money-grubbing hypocrisy and mlm scams of prosperity gospel, and they turn away from Christianity entirely. :(
But real Christians are still out there. People teaching the peace, love, kindness, and forgiveness of Jesus still exist. But they're getting fewer and fewer.

True, it is easy to paint the entirety of it with a broad brush. However, when you think about it most religion is based on making the person fearful and feel guilty all the time.

They've done this with patriot, patriotic, American, etc. as well. The extremists have taken all the shit and tainted the fuck out of it.

I just realized that I'm supposed to be involved in a contest of providing examples of partisan violence (cause Brandon thinks that's cool or something). So I have a great one.

Ray Epps.

This guy was a loyal Trump supporter. Voted Trump and red. Protested at the Capitol on J6. And on the basis of mere rumor, the MAGA mob turned on him and destroyed his life. Hounded him and threatened him such that he had to sell his house and business and go into hiding. They literally turned on and ate one of their own. Trump himself even got in in this horrific act of cannibalism.

Beat that, Brandon.

LOL that the article mentions Biden calling Trump supporters "semifacists" as the example of "violent rhetoric." It isn't violent to call a person or movement what it is. Biden was holding back. What I want to know is how republicans can get away with calling democrats "socialists" or even "communists" like 600 times every single day, but Biden makes one milquetoast remark and it's supposed to be a cause of violence. Give me a break.
From the article

Sen. Tex Cruz (R-Texas) retweeted the North Dakota Highway Patrol report of Brandt's arrest, and called out anti-conservative rhetoric, especially President Biden's Philadelphia speech, pointing out the ominous red lighting.

"Extreme Dem rhetoric is once again inciting deadly violence. When Biden, bathed in red light, calls half of America 'fascists,' tragically, deranged Leftists are listening," Cruz wrote.
Yet...


“This is not your father’s Democrat party,” Cruz said on Fox Business. “These are a bunch of transgender, wacko socialists.”
I guess he can dish it out but can't take it.
