Please re-read my post and show me at what point I supported her actions or suggested that because it's the left eating their own it's okay by me. YOU are the one interpreting my post as tacit approval of her doing what she did.

This situation should be blatantly obvious to anyone with an IQ above room temp that the democrats don't actually give a fuck about these people other than utilizing them as their "useful idiots". Sure seemed to me that she was low key calling them out to show that they will be under the boot as well if they get too far off the reservation.

insert relevant Yuri Bezmenov quote here
Perhaps I was quick to jump on that. I can see matter-of-fact speech. But your answer implies that there would be no outrage if this happened to the right. I'm assuming you mean the left would not be outraged. Perhaps not. And bad on them. But the article is Fox News. Even the right thinks this is newsworthy.

Maybe Fox and Friends in the morning would love to say that any protesters = rioters = lock them the fuck up. Or burn crosses in their front yard because the mayor has been kind enough to provide addresses. I've seen Kilmeade and Ducey say worse ;-)

I don't see Faux news as right wing, at least not in the last decade plus. Centrist at best.

I really don't think if it were the other way around it would even be being talked about other than in a few right wing leaning forums/facebook groups/etc. (aka echo chambers). Maybe i'm just jaded.

You are correct that I meant that the left would not be outraged. I have no illusions that the left would give two rusty fucks if the situation were reversed. They have obtained and published lists of concealed carry permit holders in the past and have demonstrated time and again that they have no problem doxxing people who don't toe the line of their particular ideology including other leftists/democrats.

That belief and still thinking this was a BS move are not mutually exclusive, however.

I think it’s hilarious that Scottsdale has to shut back down. Places like my old restaurant gave up on distancing as soon as they got really busy. Because they can’t stick to plans. Because they have none really. Because they saw immediate profits and thought no one would care. And now look. All those extra profits they thought they were getting...Down the shitter. If they had just done the right thing, they’d be making steady money.

It’s like Seth in Superbad. He peaked too early. Should have been having steady sex with a medium looking girl.

Too bad all the restaurants that did the right thing are being punished. But those places will still thrive because they adapt. The see-saw places will crumble.

Not by me or anyone in here. I didn’t say shit about dudes walking into Michigan legislature with AR’s. I disagree, and thought it quite redneck. But the apparent legality in Michigan and their 2A right is more important than my feelings. I would have tacitly disagreed with publishing their names. That’s just heinous on so many levels.

Protection of constitutional rights > your disagreeing with what a given group is protesting about.

I don’t understand why you can’t just see what she did as wrong. Why does politics have to come in before right to protest and privacy? “It’s a left-wing politician throwing left-wingers under the bus, so fuck em” Well when right wing politicians throw right wingers under the bus and violate their consitutional rights, we will all be sure to just shrug it off.
Those two need firearms training.

I completely agree with grabbing your ar15 before going to investigate a mob that has breached your gate and is on your property. The fact that chicken noodle news is trying to crucify that couple is absurd.

Imo they did the right thing (show of force to keep their property protected) the wrong way (there are claims she pointed a gun at people... the video I watched she MAYBE flagged one or two people incidentally).

c'est la vie

This thing is not going away anytime soon. We are at the point now that people should be able to understand the risk. It's mostly a nothing burger but if people are concerned they should take the steps needed to protect themselves and get the fuck over it.

This ain't the real life version of The Stand.
Lol! It’s true.

Also China has developed another super flu that they probably released months ago.

Fuck those commie shitstains.

Bro. The Overton Window is like a cunt hair wide and center-left authoritarian as fuuuuuuck.

Insert quote about controlling opinion by providing a narrow field for debate then fostering vigorous debate in that field.

So real story. My friend that works at a restaurant started showing symptoms last week. Tested immediately. Self-quarantined. Just came back positive. He came down with symptoms after 6 people had stopped working due to symptoms 2 weeks ago. He is avoiding the hospital because he’s a savage. Apparently half the staff are showing symptoms. About 30 people.

It was my understanding that the Overton Window is widening because pretty radical policies have been implemented and radical laws passed.

I read something that said the window is defined by the people, and politicians detect where the window is, and act within it.

I mean at the highest level there’s literally 2 90’s era democrats arguing over how authoritarian and socialist to get... doesn’t seem wide at all to me.

Perhaps more are deciding to leave that paradigm, but they aren’t voting that way.

Ugh. I take it all back. Ducey in AZ is not shutting down restaurants. Only pools, bars, gyms and movie theaters.

So restaurants gather more people than most bars in AZ. Pools are the least contagious place/medium because of chlorine. If you’re gonna lock it down, then fucking do it. No mandatory masks either. Downsiest governor ever.

That iron bitch Jan Brewer would have locked it the fuck down and been done with it all by now. That’s the one that wagged a finger at Obama and triggered half the country.

It's def not gonna be every major country. Every other country wears masks consistently and takes it seriously. Italy had like 200 cases yesterday. France had like 400.


American exceptionalism is at its peak right now.

I’ll take what we have now over what Italy did to their people.

Same for the other leftists regimes. I’m fine with people taking responsibility for their own health.

I’m taking responsibility for my health and that of my family. Aren’t you?

Imo the time when it would have been possible to eradicate this was gone before China even admitted it existed. Our labor and delivery nurse was telling us about his 34 year old friend in November who got so sick with “something” the cdc was calling her subject zero. We are now living in a world in which even seemingly healthy people are potentially bio threats.

Adapt your life to it, or don’t. Either way the consequences are yours.
