Lets talk about the dangerous language the left is speaking ?

    ahorsebackposted 12 months ago

    "Time  to destroy Trump and company ",......."The most dangerous leader ever elected "..........."lets get him ", Kathy Griffin , is but one source of a voice speaking louder and louder of  a language that is dangerous , a language that is already inciting  violence in the streets , even creating a trend of  violence against cops  ,  two days ago a Bernie Sanders volunteer shot four people at a charity baseball game for republican only senators , after identifying them as such ! This guys  Face -Book account show this  extreme in hatred too

    Its time to hold , for one  , the mainstream media accountable for inciting hatred , Hollywood celebrities for the same ,  human decency cannot be just a part of the opposing ideology .
    I blame the incredible  callousness of a mainstream news media moved beyond bias hate and right into a world of violence  . One where inciting " free speech " has very quickly become the inciting of hate speech .   If i were to put an add in the paper that said    "  Destroy Trump "   I'd be arrested .

    The intentional Inciting of violence , Isn't this a media moving intentionally out of the parameters of free speech and in sedition or treasonous behavior  ?

      Since when is negative commentary about Trump now considered sedition and treason? He is subject to same scrutiny as any man or woman holding the office. If this is all a campaign to just have the Left 'shut up', that is not going anywhere. Any heavy handed tactics from Trump and his goons to stifle free speech and free press will be flashed around the world at the speed of light. A flood of criticism will then come that he could not handle, being the narcissist that he is.

          For you people, just saying things like "Trump is a jerk" is considered inciting hate and violence.

          You are not allowed to actively incite to riot or yell 'fire' in a crowded theatre. But if you  are hiding behind your mothers skirts with excuses that we are all obligated not to attack Trump within the legal parameters provided, then you have another thing coming...... because more of it is coming, you can count on it.

            What I'm talking about and you KNOW that , Is the Kathy Griffins holding a bloody Trump head ,imagine what political influence that has in the middle east alone , Bernie Sanders ,  ....."Most dangerous president ever elected blah blah " and Sen.Sanders  is supposedly an intelligent man ?........Not exactly your "Trump is a jerk is it ?.  It  is the hateful rhetoric  ranting away to impressionable minds that will create more  incidents and  already has led to one shooting  .    All the violent street protests are  already the lefts to own      There is , and you know there is , a major difference between the  lefts violence  and what conservatives have ever done.     Say nothing about the ivory towers censuring  conservative speakers . and  the media  provoking   , promoting the BS of leftists only ,  I notice with all liberals there is no concern whatsoever with a media spewing one side only , what about your own children , want them to know one side or all sides ? I know I'd rather mine knew both sides .

            The left is totally responsible for all the violence so far.

              The Griffith incident was in bad taste, we all have acknowledge this and she was fired from her job on account of it, so why beat a dead horse?

              Bernie Sanders have a right to his opinion, just like the goal of MIT h McConnell where he stated that Obama was to be a one term president. I don't care how any insult on Trump plays in the Middle East. I am after him for what he is doing right here and now. And that will continue without letup.

              Re familiarize yourself with the constitution, saying what I want about the Rightwing ring leader is part of what free-speech is about.

              I can't nor can the Democratic Party be held responsible for ravings of one old white male lunatic. Bernie, in his heroic fashion, made clear that he condemned this man's actions. I could blame the Giffords shooting on the lock and load mentality attitude of the GOP? But that is different because that assault was coming from the rabid Right? Am I correct?

              I am opposed to any stifling of free speech regardless of its source. At the university, I would simply show my disapproval for right wing megaphones, by simply not attending. Let these people speak to no one but the relatively few members of the Hitler Youth on campus that support them. Sparse audiences will encourage such not to return. There is no need for concerned progressives to disrupt speakers.


              Oh by the way, on the study yes, is there liberal bias? I guess so, if Fox News is the yardstick by which you measure this. Even the conservative publication, Wall Street Journal, finds more negative about Trump than otherwise. It appears that most recent presidents have received more than their share of bad press. it is just that Trump gets more because his policies, style and behavior merits it. Why is every other journalistic outlet biased? Perhaps, Fox News is biased and the other 99 percent is relatively fair and balanced?

              Odd that even FOx had just slightly higher percent of negative stories about Trump than otherwise. If the fawning Fox can't do better, what do you think that the responsible journalist outfits would do?

                I've listened to such BS. since I was a high school a kid in the sixties ,   Always the "free speech " line , always for the cause .  But always as well to rip order to shreds , all order , any order at all not mattering whatsoever  how good it is ,    The mindless , directionless chaos  and  intended anarchy was just as full of hypocrisy  then as yours is now  , that is the only truth that comes out of such liberal entitlement  rhetoric .   Too bad people like yourselves can't all be in legislature , you could give yourselves raises , more bennies . more junket trips to the islands .

                Your reasoning  reminds me of your leaders ; Pelosi , Boxer , Feinstein , Sharpton ,  Reid , Sanders , Warren , Jackson , Obama , Clinton , every single one of them will justify the violence , the inciting of bloodletting ,the cop killings , the president's symbolic beheading , and all the violent riots  but the fact is  that free speech is the last thing you are willing to listen to if it opposes your own voices , then it quickly becomes "hate speech , bigotry  , bias and then its spoken by nazi's ,  rednecks ,country hicks  , ",   the only constitutional rights you're kind are interested in are entitlement rights  and they had damned well better be free entitlements at that .

                This country has never in it's history seen such mindless , directionless unsustainable socialism  stuffed down it's  throat by the left and this media as has been shown  in the last eight  years ,  Sad part is , your movement lost all momentum in this incredibly leaderless DNC   election loss that you and your bought and paid for media still cannot stomach. And that's all your ideology has  got and all that you are .

                You lost the election , pretty simple , now get over yourselves !

                  How about it if you just climb down from your high horse, Ahorseback?
                  There were civil rights movements, sit ins etc, where change to society was just and necessary unless, you were in line with George Wallace and company, were you?  Blaming junkets and such on democrats is a cheap shot as there are Plenty of Republicans involved in the practice. If I were in the legislature, I would provide firm and steady opposition to any and all rightwingers, aka. (Republicans).

                  What is this nonsense about entitlement, don't you get social security or are you just grazing the grass?

                    Except , "your struggle "is of a mindless  economic , social and  individual incompetence seeking only vast amounts of personally accepted government  entitlements ..............I'll bet you  just love the thought of  Utopian bennies now that you have tasted your precious government retirement . The problem you have is that you associate George Wallace with  all of the ideology of the right , perhaps you on the left  should actually read a history book instead of placing them on your pretty book cases.

    One of the growth industries in Japan is the manufacture of prosthetic little fingers.

    Why?

    Partly, at least, because in Japan it is very, very difficult to get a gun. Much harder than Europe, let alone the US.

    Not easy to be a gangster if you haven't got a gun. So, many Yakuza are quitting and covering up the trademark mutilated little finger with a prosthetic.

    Much harder being a terrorist without a gun, too.

      Really? Do you stand behind that assessment? It appears a moving vehicle works better than a gun and makes terrorism an easy option in parts of the world. Bombs are much less accessible than a gun. They don't seem to encounter difficulty using those.

      Cheap shots need to be thought out Will, or they just sound silly.

      It would be difficult to commit a crime with a gun , knife , or even a truck if we actually had an effective court and jailing system in the US !
