While the Republicans are a sad lot, the Freedom-Haters are downright terrifying

Kathleen Rice, the representative from New York's 4th Congressional district, actually said this in a tweet:

I'm just going to say it.  & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that.

She really thinks that's okay for an elected official to put out there for public consumption.

There should be no letup in heaping scorn upon this jackboot's head.


  1. Rice is stupid for tweeting anything at all at anytime. Wish our freely elected Republican Commander in Chief would chill too. But his base digs it.

  2. But terrifying in relation to Trump. Not my read at all,

  3. You're not serious, are you? This is someone who draws a paycheck - the funds for which come from your tax dollars and mine - to craft federal law saying that a particular individual and a particular private organization that are dedicated to defending the second amendment, and therefore the sovereignty of the individual vis-a-vis the state, should be arrested and deprived of their rights of free movement, not to mention their right to carry.

    Think this through again.

  4. The freely elected Republican Commander in Chief can, on his own, launch fire and fury upon God's green earth from a twit storm. Suck it NRA, I know you'll fire back.

  5. I know it's not necessarily connected, but I bet it is:

    The League of the South's longtime president, retired university professor Michael Hill of Killen, Alabama, posted a message in July that began, "Fight or die white man" and went on to say Southern nationalists seek "nothing less than the complete reconquest and restoration of our patrimony — the whole, entire South."

    "And that means the South will once again be in name and in actuality White Man's Land. A place where we and our progeny can enjoy Christian liberty and the fruits of our own labor, unhindered by parasitical 'out groups,'" said Hill's message, posted on the group's Facebook page a day after a rally in support of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    The group's website says it is "waging a war to win the minds and hearts of the Southern people,"

    While white-controlled government is its goal, the group says in a statement of beliefs that it offers "good will and cooperation to Southern blacks in areas where we can work together as Christians to make life better for all people in the South."

  6. Well, yeah, after reading it I totally get your qualification: "not necessarily connected." See that with no problem at all. But then what I don't get at all is why the fuck you bring it into this

  7. Because there are indeed a large number of deplorables within.

  8. The street fights were the latest in a series of tense dramas unfolding across the United States over plans to remove statues and other historical markers of the Confederacy. The battles have been intensified by the election of Mr. Trump, who enjoys fervent support from white nationalists.

    Adding to the turmoil, the Federal Aviation Administration said late Saturday that a Virginia State Police helicopter had crashed about seven miles southwest of Charlottesville. The cause of the crash and whether anyone was injured was not immediately known.

    Here in Charlottesville, the protest, billed as a “Unite the Right” rally, was the culmination of a year and a half of debate in Charlottesville over the fate of the Lee statue. A movement to remove it began when an African-American high school student here started a petition. The City Council voted 3 to 2 in April to sell it, but a judge issued an injunction temporarily stopping the move.
