The Thug in Chief has spoken.

“WASHINGTON—U.S. President Donald Trump issued an extaordinary warning to political opponents on Monday, telling a right-wing website that “it would be very bad, very bad” if his supporters in the military, police and a motorcycle group were provoked into getting “tough.”

Trump uttered the remark in an interview with Breitbart News. It came, according to Breitbart, as Trump was arguing that “the left” plays politics in a more “vicious” manner than the pro-Trump right even though “the tough people” are on Trump’s side.”

I can only imagine if Obama had said anything even close to this.

Imagine no longer:

They’re going to try to scare people. They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy.’ If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.

Several experts on authoritarianism and others who closely follow President Trump’s moves and remarks reminded followers on social media Trump’s words are another example of “stochastic terrorism.”

As Reagan said, “if there going to be a bloodbath, let’s get it over with.”

Antifa and Berkeley and Portland thugs had their turns at bat. They either stand down or deserve to be dealt with harshly.

Good for Trump to give them a warning.

He’s issuing a warning. Time for Antifa to disband.

"Antifa and Berkeley and Portland thugs had their turns at bat. They either stand down or deserve to be dealt with harshly."

Correct.

The lefty antifa blackshirts arent going to like having their new antifa/attack republicans physically everywhere applied to them.

Number of posts where Inga has criticized leftists for physically attacking republicans/conservatives, even high schoolers? Zero.

Drago said...

Number of posts where Inga has criticized MS13 gang members for butchering young American citizens?

Zero

Drago said...

Number of posts where Inga has offered any criticism of islamic supremacists murdering westerners?

Zero

mccullough said...

Antifa have attacked ICE agents, police officers, journalists, and other protestors.

Perhaps the Ignarant can start perusing the news instead of cutting and pasting from left-wing lunatics.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Paul Ryan wouldn’t give the right to have any subpoenas,” Trump told Breitbart News. “Okay? Now in all fairness, Meadows and Jordan and all these guys, they wanted to go tougher, but they weren’t allowed to by leadership.”

Trump’s comments came in a wider part of the conversation about how the left is more “vicious” than the right—and that the left in American politics plays “cuter and tougher.”

“So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,” Trump said when asked by Breitbart News Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle about how the left is fighting hard. “You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that’s all they want to do is -you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this.”

These are ravings suitable for a tinpot dictator, not the chief executive of a representative democracy. It’s sheer lunacy to think that the Speaker of the House would issue subpoenas against random political opponents of the President. That Ryan rightly refused is to his credit, although one can reasonably wonder why he didn’t bring the demands to public attention.”

Did you happen to catch what Inga's antifa "heroes" did to that aged retiree and military veteran who didnt realize antifa had taken illegal control of the streets in Portland when he made a perfectly normal turn onto a street where these antifa animals were destroying things?

And to think the left paints antifa as the equivalent of D-Day soldiers.

Lefty Inga keeps quoting other lefties who offer up lefty opinions as if it were the truth all to obfuscate what the antifa wing of the democrat party has been doing.

William said...

I've never listened to any of R. Kelly's music. Until just recently I didn't know what a you-tube "influencer" was or that you could make a lucrative living writing about your enthusiasm for cosmetic products on you-tube. The Laughlin mother, who I never heard of, was apparently a big star on the Hallmark Channel. I had vaguely heard of the Hallmark Channel, but never watched it. Ditto wth the Empire show. Somewhere along the way I have lost touch with popular culture and its celebrities. No great loss, but it's disorienting to find oneself living in a foreign country.

Though it doesn't seem to bother the present Speaker of the House to have her puppets like Adam Schiff to issue subpoenas to the Presidents friends, children, and staff.

Drago said...

You will notice that Inga doesnt comment very much on that old collusion thing anymore.

It appears the subtle signals from Lefty/Dem/LLR Central might finally be sinking in.

I wonder if Reid Hoffman is up to speed?

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Did you happen to catch what Inga's antifa "heroes"...”

Why did you put “heroes” in quotation marks? Who said Antifa were heroes?

OCDrago, once again.

Drago said...

"Though it doesn't seem to bother the present Speaker of the House to have her puppets like Adam Schiff to issue subpoenas to the Presidents friends, children, and staff."

Once again the lefties are projecting onto Trump what they have been actually doing.

Expect this to heat up now that we know the obama weaponized CIA/DOJ-NSD/FBI was up to their necks in East German Stasi activity way back in 2015 according to the unredacted testimony of Page/Ohr/Strzok.

We also know that as of May 2017 there was zero evidence of collusion yet the lefties had already been lying to FISA courts and spying on Trump for almost 2 years by then.

"Authoritarian"...like spying on and running frame-up ops against domestic political opponents.

Gee, not "authoritarian" at all....(snort)

Drago said...

History Started This Morning Inga: "Why did you put “heroes” in quotation marks? Who said Antifa were heroes?"

The lefties did when they compared antifa to D-Day heroes and other lefties literally argued antifa should be given military retirement pay for their patriotic duty.

But, like Reid Hoffman, campus fake "hate speech" rules, the astonishing anti-semitism of The Womens March leadership and democrat infanticide bills offered up around the nation, you know nothing about that right?

LOL

"‘The Atlantic’ Editor Compares Antifa To WWII Allies. Um, No."

Antifa is so very, very, "brave".

And "courageous".

But mostly other-worldly "brave".

James K said...

Several experts on authoritarianism and others who closely follow President Trump’s moves and remarks....

Ah, experts. What would we do without them? Especially the unnamed ones cited to support whatever anti-Trump theme a journalist is pushing.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Did you happen to catch what Inga's antifa "heroes"...”

Why did you say they are “Inga’s heroes?”

“The lefties did when they compared antifa to D-Day heroes and other lefties literally argued antifa should be given military retirement pay for their patriotic duty.”-OCDrago

So if all lefties are all clones of one another including Antifa, then I can assume all righties are clones of each other including the White Supremacists who support Trump. Right?

You see how that works?

iowan2 said...

Somebody is cut and pasting stuff they don't understand...again. The President correctly points out conservative groups are far less aggressive than the left...until they aren't. That's just a simple fact.
When an elected Atty. General (D) declares on the night of the election she is going to investigate the President, without having stepped foot into an office or examined a report, announced a criminal investigation. But the President is out of line stating a simple fact.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“The President correctly points out conservative groups are far less aggressive than the left...until they aren't.”

Nice attempt at sugar coating what he said. If you weren’t such a Trump Cultist such rhetoric would concern you, especially coming from a POTUS. You people have lost all sense of decency.

Tim Kaine’s 22-year-old son was one of these left wing thugs arrested because he can’t comport himself like an adult.

Time Kaine was the Losing Dem VP nomineee.

Guess he’s an authoritarian who encouraged his son to be violent.

What do the left Wing Experts have to say about Linwood Kaine?

Is it Trump’s fault Woody can’t control his violent urges? Or was it permissive Left Wing parenting?




Drago said...

Inga, any thoughts on Lisa Pages under oath testimony that as late as May 2017 the FBI/DOJ still had ZERO evidence of collusion..after 2 years of looking!!

Yes, 2 years by then since little Nellie Ohr had been quite the busy little CIA worker-bee inside the FISA702 databases when she went looking in the fall of 2015 for Glenn Simpson to "volunteer" her services!

LOL

I think we are beginning to understand John Brennans panic, paticularly now that evidence has been released that the CIA was running their little frame up operatives into the Trump campaign looooong before any official investigation.

Tsk tsk

That sure doesnt look good....

mccullough said...

Virginia is a helluva state. Bernie Bro shooting GOP congressman.


Must be all that violent Left Wing Rhetoric. Same rhetoric that set Woody Kaine off.

BLM follower kills 5 cops in Dallas.

Guess it was Obama’s anti-police rhetoric.

Unfortunately the shooter was killed before Obana could have a beer summit with him.

Jim said...

Well, another thread gone south. Or rather, the trolls win again. Not one exchange based on facts, policy or criticism of same. Lots of name calling, especially calling one group of supporters names, questioning their intelligence, morals, etc. when I was a freshman in High School we 'argued' like that. After a while, we figured if we wanted to have a real discussion, name calling etc was a waste of time. If you really believe that the other side is low IQ, has no morals or ethics- then why the fuck do you waste our time name calling. If you "know" that the other guys are total fascists or commies, then why even engage? It's like reading the ramblings of 3 or 4- 3 year olds. You aren't even trying to have a dialogue, you are looking for that perfect snarky comeback. OOOOOH, burn. go back to middle school and hang out with like minded people.

Drago said...

What is the Over/Under estimates on number of city blocks desteoyed and public property destroyed and numbers of victims of left-wing DDay-like antifa violence?

Someone should compile the numbers.

Of course, like "Spark of Divinity" lefty/MS13 murders, it wont resonate with the lefties/LLR's.

Drago said...

Jim: "Not one exchange based on facts, policy or criticism of same."

Jim decides Lisa Page's under oath testimony is non-factual.

Drago said...

Jim, it would be a useful guide if you could identify all future factual ocvurrences that you deem "unfactual" for the purposes of clarification.

Thanks in advance.

Drago said...

Jim also decides that links to leftists portraying antifa as the equivalent to D-Day heroes is "unfactual".

Jim, you are a difficult fellow to please.

Threatening your political opponents indeed

Par for the course, for someone that only knows of history that has happened since breakfast this morning.

I mean that literally, not figuratively. After all, "Inga" believes that women can have penises and father children.

Big Mike said...

In Jim’s defense, looking at the totality of the testimony, somebody has to have been lying under oath. We know for a fact that Clapper lies — he admitted it. Things fall nicely into place if we assume Lisa Page is telling the truth.

It seems similar to the claim all Republicans believe as Todd Akin does. So it's revealing you fight the application to yourself when you clearly believe it applies to others.

Kevin said...

Once again the lefties are projecting onto Trump what they have been actually doing.

They have been waiting for him to hit back since he took over, so they can scream “authoritarian” and demand Republicans denounce his actions.

It’s the second person throwing a punch who gets ejected for “escalating” the confrontation, and now the Muller probe has failed, the Democrat House clearly overreached, and Pelosi has taken impeachment off the table, they’re back to trying to incite him.

Inga and ilk are seizing on these comments to provide intention when their “peaceful demonstrations” are met with arrests and their violent ones are blamed on the “authoritarian” response to their “peaceful” ones.

The economy is good. They need something to force a change. They’re going with “we need a new president to bring this divided nation back together again.”

And they’re going to need more than just political disagreements to make the sale.

Nope Unknown your example is not in the same ballpark, it was metaphorical. Trump’s examples were not metaphorical.

3/14/19, 9:26 PM


The fact that Obama did not say the words "lefty/anarchist professors will hit children with bike locks" does not, in fact, mean that Obama-fan professors did not in fact hit children with bike locks. The bike lock was not a metaphor. The knives, the guns, as demonstrated by events like the James T. Hodgkinson shooting of Republican congressmen at the baseball field, were no metaphors, they were real and actual.

Kevin said...

True. Obama demanded people hit back twice as hard.

If I've deleted your post to maintain the standard of keeping on topic, don't write another post on the subject in the guise of discussing the deletion. My deletion policy is also not a topic here. I may do a post on comments policy and the newly heightened enforcement of an old policy, but I don't want that to be discussed here. I'm seriously entertaining the possibility of putting all comments through moderation and completely eliminating off-topic comments. I think that takes something away from the commenting experience, but it is an option. Please help me avoid it.

Apparently the one thing that made this blog different from other Leftwing blogs, free speech, is about to finally be ended.

You mean like rewarding his friends and punishing his enemies?
Maybe he meant to tell us to get in your faces? Punch back twice as hard?
