Ha ha. These effing morons.
This is the same conservative group that was having its anchors
read a script that bashed the news media and would praise the fat, cheeto-in-charge.

He said he was going to ram a hot poker up David Hogg's ass.

He's been fired or resigned and advertisers had cancelled their slots after his threat.


"The resignation comes as Sinclair is under fire for requiring anchors to read a script bashing the news media and echoing talking points from President Trump. As a result, Sinclair is the target of a #SinclairStrike movement calling for a one-day walkout on May 15. Activists have also called for a Sinclair boycott."

In a sense, this is what modern conservative media really wants to do: for all their posturing, there's this not-so-hidden mob mentality underneath. Not literal violence, but this unthinking, seething contempt for anyone who dares challenge their views with facts and reason.

On that note: it's pretty pathetic that a middle-aged man would threaten violence (even if figurative) against a teen who heard his schoolmates being killed, and whose biggest crime was... leading peaceful protests for gun control.

That's because, and I believe this is the medically accurate term, their brains are fucked.

Some more of Trump’s very fine people no doubt, is there a position at the FCC open for him?

Beyond any hope of repair for most of them. But then life becomes so much easier to understand and suffer through when these folks are given an enemy to hate and a wholly contrived reason for feeling and voting that way.

It explains why these folks seem to think it's OK to have their health care taken away so the rich can cash in on it and to vote for leaders that laugh their asses off for having these dupes fall for any and every lie they can come up with.
