Angry Americans

  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders was ousted from a restaurant in Virginia.
  • Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was jeered as she dined at Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C.
  • A woman confronted EPA head Scott Pruitt in a restaurant in D.C. while she was holding her baby.
    "We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all us, including our children," she said. "I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out." Pruitt didn't respond, and promptly got up and left with his security guards.
  • Protesters were video-recorded confronting Mitch McConnell as he left a restaurant.
    One of the protesters in the video can be heard saying “We know where you live,” which was called a “not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook.”
    Rep. Maxine Waters has never called for violence, but has urged the public to peacefully and publicly confront members of the Trump administration. Since encouraging protests, she has received several threats and been forced to cancel appearances.
  • A woman saw Steve Bannon in a Virginia book store. She took the opportunity to call him a “piece of trash.”
    Nick Cooke, the owner of the book store, called the police.
    In a tweet following the incident, Philippe Reines, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, shared the contact information of the Virginia bookstore. She posted the address, phone number and email of the bookstore, which is available on the store’s website, appearing to urge his followers to contact the business to defend the woman.
  • A woman harassing a Trump supporter on a plane (video)...

As was posted elsewhere, Putin must be smiling when he sees the success of the Russian efforts to weaken us by dividing us. I wonder if he reads the posts here - he'd enjoy what his people have created here too.

Where is this 'baiting' coming from?  Or even that of 'attacking'?  Is that when others disagree with posts?

 

When does disagreeing become baiting or attacking?

Brawl Breaks Out at Trump’s New Walk of Fame Star


A knock-down, drag-out brawl broke out on the Hollywood Walk of Fame between a group of protesters and some President Trump supporters — who were holding a makeshift rally around his new star after the old one got destroyed on Wednesday.

The fight reportedly went down around 11:25 p.m. Thursday following a verbal dispute between two men, one of whom was wearing a Trump jersey.
Footage posted on social media showed punches being thrown in every direction as numerous people jumped in and got a dose of the mayhem.
The fight eventually came to a halt and the scene was cleared by police without incident. No arrests were made, according to CBS Los Angeles.


Trump supporters had gathered around his new Walk of Fame star Thursday night to honor the president after his old star got taken out by a man with a pickax.

Another Fight at Trump Hollywood Star


Supporters and opponents of President Trump clashed again at his Walk of Fame star in Hollywood, where a man was arrested Sunday night after the second big fight at the site in four days.


A man wearing a red Make America Great Again cap was shouting, “We got America great again!” and other pro-Trump slogans into a megaphone, riling up some of the president’s detractors, according to the CBS affiliate in Los Angeles.


“This guy came up and said he was going to pull his hat off, and . . . went up and pulled the Make America Great Again hat off and after that, everything just went crazy. They started fighting,” one woman told the station.

We are seeing the success of the "Resistance". The Progressive Movement has organized mobs ready to go for whatever the cause of the day is. There is the pussyhat brigade, antifa, BLM, various Hispanic organizations, Occupy, school kids against guns and so on.

 

This is not new - individual entities have been around for the most part but the organization of them collectively (good word) has been fairly recent.

 

A good example is the "Woman's March" that was set up as a protest tool with a variety of causes. Women's rights, gay rights, illegal immigrant rights, anti-Trump, anti-wall, socialized medicine, abortion, environmental issues, diversity - you pick it, they will picket.

 

It appears the Russian agents trying to weaken us through division that some try to lay on Conservatives have actually found a good friend in the Progressive movement.

Yep, GOPerLords put out a memo - all the neoRepublicans are lining up to claim groups exercising their 1st Amendment rights should be subjected to 2d Amendment solutions, and now they try and blame the Russians for supporting and instigating the anti-Trump demonstrations that are sweeping the land.

 

Funny thing, there is a mountain of evidence Russians rigged the election for Republicans, not a single jot or tittle indicating they supported a Progressive, but our resident GOPers want us to believe Putin is an "equal opportunity employer" when it comes to trying to destroy Democracy. Pathetic.

And there is every bit as much (probably a bigger mountain) of a mountain saying they had no effect on the outcome. So, all your Putin concerns are without merit.

Funny thing - Der Trumper can't keep from saying NO when he means YES. Think we're up to three instances caught on tape in the last 48 hours.

 

Not so funny thing - the list of things rk claims Russia is using to divide us - Human Rights, Women's Rights, immigration reform, anti-Fascists, health care, Creation Protection - received not a scintilla of Russian aid, but tens of millions of dollars and millions of carefully crafted PsyOps warfare posts on social media were given to Republicans who oppose all the things rk mentions.

 

To defeat Putin and Russian destruction of our Democracy we must defeat his willing allies, the Republican Party.

Former president George W. Bush coined the phrase "casual cruelties" to describe Trump's approach to others.  Trump continues to denigrate his staff, Congress, and American citizens through his Tweets and at his rallies. Some of the more famous episodes are his referring to Jeff Sessions as "Elmer Fudd" and mocking the shaking of a reporter with MS. All this was done with the support of his staff. 

 

Now, the world should leave leave them alone in restaurants?  Hardly.

Der Trumper insults whole Nations with his Twittweets and his vassals cheers.

Then orders his minions to kidnap, brutalize and ransom refugee infants and children and they comply with great zeal.

 

Now all of a sudden they're upset because decent people treat them the way they act? Poor snowflakes. NOT

So many seem to forget the VERY RUDE way he made fun of the reporter with MS. He made nasty remarks about PTSD military, saying he had no respect for them, they were weak, WHAT a dam draft dodger of 5 times. His poor sore bone spurs.

He ducked and ran like a scared rabbit when he thought a man was jumping up on his stage at a rally. If I had a tape I'd run it over and over any time I could.
What a wuss.

He has no right to ever degrade anyone in or out of the military. He degrades who ever he wants, when ever he wants, so why are people so upset when we degrade him. He gets what he gives DISRESPECT.

He is the most DISRESPECTFUL person I have ever laid my eyes on, let alone a so called President.

Yes Americans are Angry for more reasons than he is just a Republican, he is a disrespectful lying, womanizing, commits adultery, grabs women, eye balls Ivanka, dirt ball.

You ever complain about Bill Clinton and his use of women for his own means?  You respect his wife for defending him and lashing out to his accusers?  Her being an enabler for his escapades?

 

You are angry at Trump, yet by the posts here you and others are acting like him in disrespecting anyone who supports him.  Your group supports public officials being accosted in restaurants, public venues and even outside their homes, yet you accuse Trump for his actions?

 

How hypocritical of his accusers.

So you believe it is ok to accost someone in public who you disagree politically with?  Even in front of their family?  How would you like to be out with friends and family and have someone create a disturbance everywhere you go, just because of whom your employer is?

 

And you wonder why there is animosity towards liberals who have no regard for other's civil rights.  Yes, there is much posted here about an individual's civil rights, yet liberals have no regard for public official's personal civil rights.  Hypocritical.

GOPerLords must've put out a memo telling their dupes to try and make the outrage citizens feel toward those who carry out Der Trumpers racist, sexist xenophobic policies a violation of Civil Rights. The very Rights Trump seeks to deny children, refugees and Americans who are neither rich or white OR WHO DISAGREE WITH HIM.

 

These are the idelogical descendants of the one's who cheered when fire hoses and attack dogs were used against children peacefully demonstrating for THEIR CIVIL RIGHTS. No way to change those minds, so we must remove their power to put evil thoughts into action -
