Coast guard lieutenant planned to murder democrats and media figures



Glad they caught him.



Another nut

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”

  • Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution , October 10, 1787


I was told in this forum I had Scalise’s blood on my hands merely for being opposed to Trump.

Limbaugh claimed the shooter was a mainstream Democrat.


Let me see where was I…



That seems to be the general concensus in the comments section on Breitbart today, as well.


Sounds like Jefferson was promoting sedition. Please don’t defend sedition.


I had a couple of post like that, one sarcastic, that got flagged and deleted. Imagine that.


And again, by whom?

The shooter was a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer. He callled for Democratic Socialism - just like Ocasio-Cortez. He was deeply invested in liberal politics and hated Donald Trump and frequently wrote to Democrat senators to cajole and advise them. All his friends say he was a progressive liberal.

He was certainly NOT a Republican.



There are a ton of posts over there like that. Imagine.


So you think he was a mainstream Democrat then?


He said nothing out of line with Democratic party principles and he always called on Democrats to push his agendas and beliefs. All his acquaintences would have labelled him so as they describe him.



Dantes, do not make the mistake of thinking I am claiming his BEHAVIOR is also mainstream Democrat.

His behavior was nuts - pure and simple, and just like Hasson’s might have been, had he carried it out.



Because they’re totally the same thing. :roll_eyes:


Why do you differentiate what he said and what he did?


What who said and did?



I don’t know but if they could also destroy trust in the press and in the intelligence community… oh my, that could be dangerous.


Jussie Smollett is an example of how desperate some people are in searching for anything that validates their own convoluted perceptions.

…of coarse blame for that can also be laid at the feet of our treasonous President and his deplorable supporters I’m sure.


Hyperbole much?



What he planned to do was very newsworthy. The piddling number of guns and rounds of ammo he had, was not.


You homer?
