Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

Pat Holden:

" Antifa is every bit as violent as the white supremacists."

I forget. How many fatalities in Charlottesville were the result of the Antifa demonstrators?

Last I heard, that number was zero. Your white supremacists held the body count to just one, but that's still one more than all the other groups protesting that day. Including Antifa.

Stop the equivalency argument. "Both sides are bad." It's pretty clear where the violence and carnage came from that day.

Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

Unable to prove his point by addressing the carnage in Charlottesville, Pat Holden instead conjures up the ghost of Joseph Stalin, who died in 1953, to use as a bogeyman to frighten the rest of us. "Stalin, one of the worst mass-murderers in history. Fighting Nazis does not make you a good guy by default."

Stalin is not known as a mass murderer for fighting Nazis! Fighting Nazis was, perhaps, his only redeeming quality and has always been counted to his credit. Similarly, fighting Nazis will not tarnish Antifa.

Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

"Antifa is every bit as violent as the white supremacists..."

The Charlottesville terrorist, a neo-Nazi racist, murdered one and injured 28 peaceful protestors who had no ties to Antifa. Meanwhile, according to Wikipedia, "Antifa participants protected Cornel West and various clergy from attack by white supremacists, with West stating he felt that antifa had 'saved his life'. Antifa activists also defended the First United Methodist Church..."

Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

Laughable. Quick history lesson: Do you remember who the third member of the Allies' "Big 3" was along with Roosevelt and Churchill? Stalin, one of the worst mass-murderers in history. Fighting Nazis does not make you a good guy by default. By the same extension, Communist-centered Antifa is every bit as violent as the white supremacists and every bit as poorly justified. Their purported "anti-fascist" goals in fact border on fascist in their means as they target anyone they please.

You know things are bad politically when "political violence is bad" is decried as a supporting call for racists because the left decides it didn't want its darling Antifa angels being talked down at.

Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

The American Civil War ended over 150 years ago. Yet a bunch of crazed racists felt the need to descend on Charlottesville to keep the memory of the traitors alive. The Charlottesville terrorist car attack is only a little over a year old, but Pat Holden writes, "Are we still seriously bringing up Charlottesville?" as if it is ancient history.

"Apparently that's what passes for criticism these days..." and why I could not care less what Patty thinks.

Re: “Brett Kavanaugh is proof that elections matter

How hard can that be saying Nazis are bad?

Did he seriously say that? Are we still seriously bringing up Charlottesville?

Here's a reminder: Trump did say Nazis are bad. He just didn't exclusively say that Nazis are bad like the left-wing kooks wanted him to and instead denounced political violence of any origin, including the Communist-centered Antifa. Difference being the left-wing kooks prefer to defend Antifa like they're some kind of white knight so they cried foul.

Then, a day or so later, he specifically condemned the white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the other Democrat-favored buzzwords...and the Democrats creamed him for not doing it soon enough. Apparently that's what passes for criticism these days and why I pretty much ignore anyone claiming Trump is a white supremacist.

Buzz off, Obama.

Re: “Are Mike Coffman and other Colorado Republicans in trouble?

Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children and grand children as has been passed on to us

*The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the billions spent on bilingual education for illegal aliens.

*Currently numerous Democrat city, and state officials are appropriating millions of taxpayer dollars for legal fees to to file law suits and in defense of illegal aliens being deported and to sue our own Government..

*2016 illegal aliens sent home $62 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. This is why Mexico is getting involved in our politics.

*30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison U do the math.

*$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens, I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY to process Illegals in the Criminal justice system.

*$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps) WIC, & free school lunches.

*Taxpayer funded in state tuition college discounts for illegal aliens cost taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

Re: “Are Mike Coffman and other Colorado Republicans in trouble?

I will vote this for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given ...not anymore), those who oppose sanctuary cities, amnesty and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts for illegals. That means NO Democrats. Gallup poll- 57% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010 survey.

https://news.gallup.com/poll/240725/democrats-positive-socialism-capitalism.aspx

When you reward illegal immigration with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships encourages MORE illegal entry.. Just debating DACA in congress is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars..... thank the parents.

Re: “Does Russia have something on Trump?

"I honestly cant believe you liberals..."

Wrong on two counts! I am not a liberal and you are not honest.

"You people need to go to church."

Why? Do you need us to pray for your soul after you have condemned yourself to eternal perdition with your arrant dishonesty?

"You are so dishonest it disgusts me."

That hurts! I mean it! It really hurts. I was so hoping for you to like me! I do not know if I will ever get over the disappointment.

Re: “Walker Stapleton’s KKK great-grandfather isn’t his biggest problem

Sorry Silky - that is a HUGLEY lame excuse for being attached to the Klan. Also lame is the claim that he wasn't an actual member. Mr. Johnson is making up history the way Republicans often do.

Don't overlook that Stapelton is happy to use the accomplishments of his grandfather and the name to try to win elections but then wants people to not include his entire past.

Re: “Does Russia have something on Trump?

"Give me two examples of russians interfering in our election..."

Is this for extra credit? Will it affect my grade? Methinks Mikhail is under the delusion of being a teacher, handing out homework assignments because he is too lazy to do his own research and his ego is too bloated to realize no one on this blog takes orders from him.

I will condescend to provide you with just one example: you are a Russian (note the capitalization) trying to interfere in our election (not your election).

"...and tell me how it made a difference."

On this blog you made no difference because I exposed you, but I do not know how many different screen names you employ, nor how many other blogs and websites you are currently trying to subvert.

"Please enlighten me non delusional one."

How much are you willing to pay? Enlightenment does not come cheap (assuming it is even possible in your case).

Mike B:

"Keep it up you are handing Trump a MASSIVE victory in 2020. What will you blame it on when he wins again????? Hahahahahahahahaha. Pathetic LOSER."

Thanks for the guarantee that you can accurately predict the future. I'd like to think you're wrong, but I submit to your superior ability to know what lies ahead. It' a gift, isn't it?

Or is it perhaps a delusion?

Re: “Walker Stapleton’s KKK great-grandfather isn’t his biggest problem

Being endorsed by Tancredo is a small, very small step up from an endorsement by Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Stapleton cant help who his family is, but friends are a different matter. My father used to always say Tell me your friends and Ill tell you who you are.

Re: “Walker Stapleton’s KKK great-grandfather isn’t his biggest problem

It is ironic that a politician from Colorado should call his detractors, "snowflakes." Of all people, he should know that snowflakes can pile up in a blizzard and shut down whole cities for days.
