Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

Okay, we're now only one or two steps removed from hearing people start using words like "cleansing" and "purity," and no matter WHAT some people may say, we need to start adding these people to some kind of "Caution: Advocates dangerous and/or regressive behavior" list so we can remember them when they deny/delete it later.

All it took was a psychopath president, weak willed majority leader, a corrupt AG, an illegally stacked Supreme Court, a pandemic, and countless lives being taken by a racist police state.
That's why I call the 2nd amendment the guarantor of all the others.

Spoiler: they'll still kill you
They might kill me (or any other single citizen you might name), but they'll have a much harder time killing several million *armed* citizens than several million *helpless* ones.
 
With 40% of the population - and I'm willing to bet a vast majority of legal gun owners - supporting the fascist overthrow of checks and balances and democracy, the second amendment doesn't guarantee jack shit.
Proper education for the masses, honest elections and accountability for all in power guarantee all that junk. Not guns in the hands of rednecks.
 
Fine. Does this mean you'll start shooting? Because when I pointed out this incredibly obviously endpoint you said I was just bitching about the political side I liked losing.

The whole thing Krisken and I were talking about were guns in the hands of non-rednecks.

The cops in my town haven't killed anybody, and all our protests are peaceful. The protests in the nearest large city of mine has the police arm-in-arm with the protesters. It would be extremely detrimental to any positive outcome for me to be shooting people here right now.

Or did you mean that you think my unwillingness to travel across state lines and commit murder in the defense of those who won't defend themselves is somehow a refutation of my point?
 
Ok guys, lets calm down and stop pointing fingers at each other. Take a step back, breathe. I get it, I'm angry at what is happening too. If you can't be at the protests and rallies, do the next best thing and donate. I've started with NAACP and Planned Parenthood, as these communities are going to need all the help they can get.

Huh. Fucking Texas, eh?

Anywhom I can't get a gun because I am 100% sure I'd have some kind of 5 minute breakdown and shoot myself before I calm down and get perspective back.
 
I have several nice rifles, I've never been a gun guy, but I'm glad I own them.

My 45' Lee Enfield is my little (extremely heavy) joy.
 
The left just like a balanced party, with rogues, bards, barbarians, and clerics. The right is trying to make up their parties with only rangers.
 
Tucker Carlson just went off on the GOP.

Of course he did it in his own way, saying the GOP is too much in lockstep with democrats now, blaming the left, saying it's all the fault of Jared Kushner's influence on Trump, blah blah blah, etc, but this part stood out as pretty critical of Trump himself.

If Trump loses FOX news pundits during prime time, that is going to be a huge blow to his ability to campaign this year.

Odds are, he wants Trump to call in the military. :p

Yyyyyeah listening to what Tucker Carlson is saying... he's basically demanding to know why Trump hasn't ordered the protesters gunned down in the street to keep his supporters safe.
 
Don't get me wrong, I do agree that he is basically calling for Trump to do something terrible. It's just weird seeing someone that twists absolutely everything around to try and make Trump's shit smell like absolute roses, be so intently and unapologeticly critical of Trump.

He's getting called out for not going too far ENOUGH.
 
Fake ANTIFA accoutn used for call for violence was created by alt-right

Which surprises no-one at all, I'm sure. It's also purely coincidental that this small time account with just a few hundred followers and just days old, was suddenly picked up and retweeted by Trump Jr.
Of course the tweet and account are now gone, so the right can happily go on claiming it was real and was removed because it was exposed or because it was a call to violence, not because it was extreme white supremacists for a false flag action.
 
Disturbing if true. However, ICE claims anti-Covid 19 chemicals are being used in detention centres in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, and within Covid-19 prevention guidelines issued by the CDC. I believe ICE and their contractors are obliged to follow international human rights standards, and they claim any allegations of misuse of chemicals in detention centres is false.

Do we have independent confirmation on inappropriate use of HDQ Neutral, or other chemicals?
 
Never attribute to malice that which can be easily attributed to incompetence.

I would highly suspect, given my experience within the correctional system, that some of the (underpaid overworked sick and tired of dealing with things) workers in the facilities have NFC as to how to "properly" use HDQ Neutral or anything similar.

Mostly because no one bothered to train them.

Word from Iowa is Steve King is trailing in his primary, with his opponent's home county yet to report their vote.
