TRUMP THE FIGHTER

Commenter Nobody linked an excellent article about how Conservatives have been gentlemen while having to deal with less than honorable adversaries who will say and do anything for political gain or in this case political survival. President Trump has a different approach.

This was an excellent article by Nobody. The following excerpt was particularly meaningful:

To the left, "it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today."

I'll further this by saying this blog, and its members, began understanding different tactics were needed a decade ago. THIS BLOG was the forerunner to any other blog in NC, and still is, in bringing the fight to the vile, oppressor-lemmings. Perhaps this is why we have such vile commenters on the left side who come here to insult, degrade, and use repetitive talking points they learn about on MSNBC.

Excellent article an very relevant.

Conservatives call it culture wars, Liberals call it following the US Constitution which promises religious freedom, personal freedom, voting rights, civil rights, human rights and equal treatment under the law.

"Liberals call it following the US Constitution which promises religious freedom, personal freedom, voting rights, civil rights, human rights and equal treatment under the law."

The problem is that liberals abhor doing so. Instead they turn more and more to violence in order to intimidate the public and violate everything in the preceding statement.

Idiot Goofus said, "Liberals do their fighting using US Institutions of courts (ACLU) free speech ( protest )."

You left out violence -- such as shooting Republicans at a baseball practice, which you STILL have not condemned, along with the LONG list of violent acts previously discussed that you stated only "MAY" have occurred in spite of PROOF that they DID occur.

Liberals are violent liars who ignore and minimize FACTS that undermine their UNSUBSTANTIATED statements. You are the perfect example of this.

"The various studies have all led to the same general conclusion: The threat from homegrown right-wing extremists has grown in recent years. “Since 2007, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of attacks and violent plots originating in the far-right of American politics,” Arie Perliger, the director of terrorism studies at the Combating Terrorism Center, wrote in a 2012 report."

Idiot Goofus,

First, Mother Jones - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!. You don't need to repeat yourself with the same old "Mother Jones is professional journalism" BS. MOTHER JONES IS HARD LEFT JOURNALISM. End of story. I don't accept it, just like you don't accept any right wing media. Shut up.

Second, since it's Mother Jones, I will not even follow your link, I'll just attack what you copied and pasted. "Since 2007....in a 2012 report" is kind of old, don't you think? A report from 2012 CANNOT discuss events in 2016-2017 and the rampant increase in liberal violence induced by the derangement of liberals over the election of Trump.

Third, copying and pasting an old and unreliable (Mother Jones) article is NOT addressing the PROVEN violence of liberals against conservatives in the last year. You continue to ignore and condemn the shooting of Republicans at a baseball practice. You refuse to accept that the long list of liberal violence documented in another thread is real. You are living in a dream world where your delusions are reality. Open your eyes and your mind. Have you SEEN video of Antifa "protests?" Not exactly "peaceful" protesters exercising their "free speech."

And lastly, you're headed off into the weeds again. I don't blame you so much because it's probably not intentional. I just don't think you have the intellect or attention span required to maintain focus on a single topic for very long, but I could be wrong. It could be that you know when someone has made a valid point that proves you wrong, and you try to draw attention away from the fact that you were proven wrong (again!) by derailing the conversation. The point of this thread is that Trump fights back while liberals like you expect conservatives to "play nice" in the face of liberal dirty tactics.

The only things my comment "confirmed" are your stupidity and your unwillingness to be honest and respond directly to points.

You still have not condemned the shooting of Republicans.

You continue to ignore the factually proven litany of assaults on conservatives by liberals.

You completely ignored my point that the article you quoted is five years old and therefore, an idiotic response to the FACT that liberals are much more inclined to violence RIGHT NOW than are conservatives (as evidenced by the list on the previous thread).

You continue to ignore the FACT that Mother Jones is a far left media outlet and that this FACT is even acknowledged by liberals. If you expect us to accept what you post from Mother Jones, you must accept what we post from Townhall, National Review and Breitbart. Betcha you're not going to do that. And no, you don't need to repeat your BS about Mother Jones "winning awards" (handed out by other liberals) and MJ is "professional journalism." All the conservatives outlets I mentioned are "professional" as well.

It's a real shame you are incapable of producing a post, in your own words, longer than three sentences. I constantly feel like I'm involved in a war of wits with an unarmed person.

Sark's comments about Dan Rather and Brian Williams ( Sark wrongly said Peter Jennings)having their careers over damaged by issues of journalism ethics are a bar recognized by Mother Jones but Conservative propaganda outlets observe no such code of journalism ethics. Townhall, Breitbart, Fox programs of Hannity, Bill O'Raliy, Laura Ingrham, AM radio Rush Limbaugh, Charles Dobson are among the pure conservative propaganda, not journalism which follows a code of ethics.

Professional ethical Journalist take the journalism code of ethics seriously because it can ruin 30 years of award winning truthful journalism.

Sarkazein said...

GoofusPOV- The majority of the Conservative shows you mentioned are opinion shows/commentaries. The ones I mentioned are supposed to be journalists. Yes it was Brian Williams who lied about his experiences, Peter Jennings, a huge Canadian Leftist made the comment after a Republican victory that the voters had thrown a temper tantrum.
I would almost pay to see you write a comment that is not total nonsense. Why don't you think about it for a while, then write about the Venezuelan experience. Write about the "no need for toilet paper if there's no food to eat" experience. Write about your thoughts about the swanky Miami condos the Venezuelan leaders own. Write about Bernie's 3 houses and his net worth. Remember, he only started working at age 40.

Don't be leading the post into the weeds. This post is about civility, ethics, journalism and extremism. Notice the civility conservatives here use is addressing their debate opponent.
Liberals use the courts while conservatives organize malitias and are stockpiling weapons. Liberals believe in the institutions of freedom which are human rights, civil rights, justice, free speech, freedom of religion, voting rights and personal freedom. Conservatives call such court cases for freedom the cultural wars.

Professional Journalist around the free world follow a code of ethics, feel free to Google " journalism code of ethics". Failure to follow such a code of ethics can end or damage a journalist career.
Professional journalism is an institution of a free society, because they are charged with exposing political corruption, nepotism, injustice, incompetent, unethical behavior, immoral behavior, dangerous behavior, or discrimination.
Considering a journalist job description throughout history political leaders around the world have attacked and attempted to suppress the free press using their political power.
Under the above job description the World Free Press is not popular with the Trump Administration or Conservative public policy.

" Liberals believe in the institutions of freedom which are human rights, civil rights, justice, free speech, freedom of religion, voting rights and personal freedom. "

Goofus even if it is you, you have to know better. The left is training for armed conflict with the police and the public. Note the two links above. They are wearing black ninja wannabe suits and are trying to kill Republicans practicing for a baseball game. They are comprised of such stalwart citizens as Black Lives matter whose stated purpose is they want to kill police officers. The left cares nothing for the sentence I quoted from your post. Conservatives do not call these actions cultural war. They call it what it is - domestic terrorism.

The only bright spot is that the left is not very good at achieving their goals, even through violence. The bad thing is that sooner or later these cretins are going to attack the wrong people(who will defend themselves) and the carnage will be unimaginable. This is exactly what the leadership of the left wants so they can spin a tale that matches your talking points.

The left has not learned that when they open the door to violence, they may find it difficult to control what kind and how much comes through it. But, on the other hand, this may be what they want as they are proficient at trying to be victims when in fact they are instigators.

guy faulkes said...

Goofus, Trump would be tried by the legislative branch. The establishment Republicans hate him more than do the Democrats. If he were to be charged, he would have difficulties even f he were innocent.

Let us use the "independent investigator" as an example. This guy is tied closer to the left than one Siamese twin is to another. For months the fake news media, the establishment, and the Democrats have been trying to prove malfeasance on the part of Trump. They have not succeeded, which tells me the there is nothing there. They have reached the point that the Russian non story is boring the public. They will surely try to manufacture something else soon.

However, let me try to educate you on doing what you feel is just. There is a process called jury nullification. A jury can bring back any verdict it deems just and nothing can be done about it. They get to "try" the law as well as the accused. No judge will advise a jury they have this right, but it exists.

In my opinion, this process might b the only chance the illegal alien young lady student has, assuming she can get a trial by jury. Her case may be one that goes before a judge only. If so, she might get a liberal activist judge to legislate from the bench, as there is not supposed to be anything called judicial nullification. Judges are supposed to follow the law.

Unlike you, I acknowledge that those on the left can use this process with as much validity as those on the right.

Senator Robert Byrd was born in Wilkes County, NC and adopted by a West Virginia family. Robert Byrd was first elected to congress in 1947, more than 70 years ago. Jim Crow America's political power in many states was controlled by the KKK. West Virginia was one of such states. Later in his political career Robert Byrd tried to do the right thing as the Republicans were trying to rekindle the embers of Jim Crow terrorist and injustice.

Hell, Guy's lived thru most of it!

guy faulkes said...

Goofus, I did some research on the KKK, but rest assured I did not do it on Facebook. My research indicates that there has been three incarnations of the KKK.

The first was started immediately after the War of Northern Aggression by Democrats. As slavery was an important part of the reason for this war (although not the principle one which was states rights vs. federal taxation) and the indisputable fact these people were racists, the control of Negroes was a major part of the KKK's guerilla war against Reconstruction. Eventually the desegregations of the carpetbaggers and scalawags were reduced due their having stolen enough to satisfy themselves and the people genuinely concerned with reestablishing the Union slowly taking control As a result the size and influence of the Klan diminished greatly.

The second incarnation started in 1915 in Atlanta, Georgia. As Reconstruction was no longer an issue, the focus of the Klan became a fraternal organization that opposed non whites and non Protestants. The Klan opposed blacks and other people of color, Jews, and Catholics. It focused on the differences in rural and urban areas and peaked in the good economy days in the 1920's. By the 1930's it had dropped drastically in size. It appears to have been made up of Democrats to a large extent, but many many Democrats changed to Republican. This is the point in time when the Republican party was starting to become Democrat lite. The progressive movement was growing.

The third incarnation is a group of individual organizations calling themselves the KKK collectively. In the 1940's communism was added to the racial and religious issues that were the motivating factors for the growth of these organizations. I cannot determine if the membership is mostly Republican or Democrat as factions of the two parties are virtually identical.

Goofus, I readily admit I do not have a personal knowledge of the KKK as you seem to. I also have to admit you may be partially correct in this instance as there is no way to be certain of the political leaning of the KKK. This makes both of our statements opinions. As far as I am concerned this means you are still 100% wrong but are moving in a positive direction toward getting something right.

What does the KKK have to do with Trump anyway? Tribal mentality is the cornerstone of the liberal personality. You are a good example as you never have an original thought and can only repeat the La La La La La talking points taught to you by your political masters. Trump will call you on your liberal BS like not President ever has.

Wolf, it seems like I have lived through a lot of it. The changes I ave seen, both good and bad are incredible. Maybe we were both recipients of the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times", my friend.

guy faulkes said...

Goofus, the Civil War was also called the Rebellion, The Great Rebellion, The War Between The States, The War of Northern Aggression, and The War of Southern Aggression. The War of Northern Aggression was most often used after the war in reference to the results of reconstruction.

During reconstruction, the north was able to accomplish its goals from before the war. These goals involved acquiring the wealth and properties of the south very cheaply, usually only pennies for the dollar. The northern controlled government over regulated how the people of the south could do business and by taxation. They taxed southern properties for amounts that the formerly affluent but now broke southerners could not pay because of the regulations controlling business being used to punish the south.

These actions created the opportunity for people the north called entrepreneurs and the south called carpetbaggers and scallywags to "redistribute" the wealth of the south.

Does this sound familiar?

I now have a question for the blog. Goofus fits our anonymous friend very well, but so would Scallywag. Which should I use?
