The sickening fact is that there are too many people who believe and act out on his rhetoric. 

I stand by what I wrote.  Rush will not be missed. 

 

I’m inclined to say right-wing radio was the genesis of this country’s mass polarization.   Obviously tons of other factors have brought us to this point and both parties are at fault; but the starting point was Rush. 

Previous to him I can’t think of any political figure or pundit on the news, radio, or TV who thoroughly demonized the opposing party on a daily basis.  Sure politics has always been filthy but at least some mutual respect and common ground existed between everybody.  Even in the tumultuous 60's this was the case.   Limbaugh was something new.  He was uncompromising, accusatory and full of vitriol 24/7.  People loved it.  Popularity soared.  Unfortunately Limbaugh’s act has proven to be a disaster for national unification.

So that would be a no on this alledged video?

Let me guess, next you are going to say the Post Office is being sabotaged

Here's your cult leader. 

President Trump on Monday further cast doubt on the U.S. election process, claiming falsely that the only way he would lose in November is if the election is "rigged."

Trump made the remark at the end of a speech to supporters in Oshkosh, Wis., Monday afternoon as he implored them to vote. It follows months of Trump claiming without evidence that widespread mail-in voting during the coronavirus pandemic would invite fraud into the election.

Planting the seed for post election day false accusations.

Portland Protesters Caught on Video Beating Man Unconscious Following Truck Crash

Quote

 

Protests in Portland turned violent on Sunday night when demonstrators beat up a man after he crashed his truck in the downtown area.

Reports and footage from the incident shows that at approximately 10:30 P.M. local time, authorities received word that a white man crashed at a sidewalk close to a Black Lives Matter rally. Sgt. Kevin Allen told Washington Post that the crash happened because, according to the police report, “protesters were chasing the truck before it crashed, and they assaulted the driver after the crash.”

Video from the encounter shows that the driver was forced to the ground by protesters nearby, who continued to physically and verbally accost him. This continued until one of the protesters ran up to the man’s side from behind and kicked him in the face. The man was eventually attended to by a medic and hospitalized afterwards.

This has already been discussed.  Go back a few pages and read.  

You've made your point.  We get it.   Portland is in flames, Antifa and BLM are gonna take over the world, and the liberals are gonna let it happen.  The only saving grace is Trump.  I understand you for the 354,000th time.

They live in your head.  Rent free.

You know how you can get rid of them?

Fill up a bucket of water.  Immerse your head all the way in it for five straight minutes.

 

That will take care of the "problem". 

Guaranteed.

"Many of us have been deeply concerned about the current path we’ve been following for the past four years. It’s a path that’s led to division, dysfunction, irresponsibility, and growing vitriol between our citizens," former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, one of four Republicans to take the virtual stage at the DNC, said, standing at what appeared to be a fork in the road. "Continuing to follow that path will have terrible consequences for America’s soul because we’re being taken down the wrong road by a president who has pitted one against the other."

Kasich, who ran for president against Trump in 2016, didn't mention the president by name, but said, "He’s unlike all of our best leaders before him, who worked to unite us, to bridge our differences and lead us to a united America."

Trump singled out Kasich in comments to reporters aboard Air Force One before his former foe spoke. “He was a loser as a Republican and he’ll be a loser as a Democrat," Trump said.

 

How Presidential is that?

It’s not Presidential.   It’s a reality TV trash mentality that his base loves strictly because it's not Presidential.  Doesn't matter the act is wearing thin on everyone else, he'll continue to talk as such because the cult likes it.

Not too long ago one guy acted out in Minneapolis....and the context there was the guy that got harmed had done something wrong ......but it was pretty universally agreed upon that he didn't have it coming as you seem to be suggesting.  There was a little different reaction too by the media over that one person that was acting out, I wonder why.

Using the Charlie Kirk "I wonder why" as part of an argument is not a good way to be taken seriously. I'm not offended if you address the fact that it is black-on-white crime that has so many people riled up. Just be forward with it in a coherent manner.

The big difference between the two is one has a lone wolf acting out with others trying to prevent his actions, while the other has accomplices aiding and abetting his actions. Both belong in jail regardless of context. But when Floyd first came into the news, my first thought was what did he do to get arrested; had he shot at a cop (or civilian) it would have been much more justified.

Could you imagine the number of Lemmings willing to attend Trump rallies if he re-enacted this at every event?  Even in times of covid his cult followers would show up in droves.  
Jesus H Christ, they would've scored 300k attendance in Tulsa instead of the 24 that showed up.  

Why am I not his campaign manager?

Oh, I'm kind of disappointed.

I was hoping to hear, "gurgle, gurgle, gurgle....."  Then, silence. 

Lol

I had seen the video and just assumed it was some deranged screaming idiot. Had no idea he was running for Congress. He is actually right on brand for the Dems these days.

He is actually running for a seat in the Minnesota legislature, not the US House of Representatives.

What an absolutely vile comment. Nothing like suggesting someone should kill himself because they have a different opinion than you. You should be ashamed.

I'm more opptomistic than that. My grandkids in GF are going to be in class. High school (one child) will be MWF in class, TTh remote, vise versa next week. 

Of coarse; masks, not goggles - social distancing  - wash hands - and so on.
