I don't trust Dailywire. Their prejudice is clearly obvious so I believe this has to be hoax. Please tell me there if no evidence elsewhere that this was actually written;

If it is FAKE NEWS, he should sue.

 

If it is true, LMAO.

My first thought was 'where's the actual quotation that is being referred to?' since the target of the lashout isn't actually shown.

 

You said yourself that you don't trust dailywire anyway, so....

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Lawmakers in the Ohio House have continued a lame-duck session by approving a so-called anti-abortion "heartbeat bill."

The stringent proposal would ban abortions in Ohio after the first fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

The GOP-controlled House voted 58-35 Thursday in favor of the legislation, which does not include exceptions for rape or incest. The legislation goes next to the Senate.

The stringent proposal would ban abortions in Ohio after the first fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) vetoed a similar bill in December 2016, siding with opponents who contend it is unconstitutional.

Sounds like people taking possible sarcasm WAY out of context and triggerraging like flaming snowflakes (which could actually physically work if the ice was methane. Said flaming snowflakes would be ephemeral anyhow).

I wonder what the difference is between the two if they found a similar bill unconstitutional two years ago? Also, Kasich isn't actually out of office until January, so, he could still veto it.

Sounds like people taking possible sarcasm WAY out of context


sarcasm noun [ U ] UK ​ /ˈsɑː.kæz.əm/ US ​ /ˈsɑːr.kæz.əm/
​the use of remarks that clearly mean the opposite of what they say, made in order to hurt someone's feelings or to criticize something in a humorous way.

Which part of the Rep. comment was sarcastic? He might tried to be funny or witty, but came out dumb and stupid.

That doesn't sound like sarcasm. that is typical SJW Nazi speech. They are so anti violence they will prove it by using violence to get their way.   Afterall, that is how both Antifa and BLM work.

 

99% of people  are anti violence or pro violence depending on who the target is.

Something to look forward to: https://www.politico...ent-2020-975846

 

So, how much does it cost to build a Vault and which one should a model it after? Oh wait, that last question is easy. Vault 34 of course!

 

Edit: Curious how none of the "left" leaning MSM has reported Swalwell's comment. Even in jest is is at the very least in poor taste for a political leader with presidential ambitions to carelessly joke about ordering the incineration millions of Americans for refusing to follow a law that violates their Constitutional rights. No bias in the media though.

Nothing in that lien of comments of his suggest he was joking. I bet he would do that if he could. He would **** it to it. But, I agree with Hoondig though. The right are the same way. theyw ould love to destroy their opponents too. Like I said, people are pro or anti violence depending on who the target is.

 

P.S. Anyone else angry at ****hole countries who treat their citizens so poorly that  they feel the need to flee to a Nazi KKK country like US?  How much a of a ****hole do you have to be that actively choosing  the biggest racist ever Donald Trump as your president is the better alternative.

He is clearly idiot or at least he has not though things through. 

 

First nukes are very poor choice of weapons to suppress revolt, as even if they are used to destroy those who rebel against government they will always cause catastrophic damage to civilians and infrastructure in scale which rebelling people most likely never could achieve by themselves. Meaning that it would be just government shooting themself in their own foot.

 

Second military, especially USA's military has much efficient weapons to use against armed rebellion.

 

But at end whole scenario is mostly idiotic, because government that starts to persecute people they usually have support of majority of the people which means that usually majority of civilian owned weapons are used to help government to persecute people instead of protecting people from government's persecution. Meaning that second amended more likely protects government from people than people from government.

Basically just another 'politician says something really dumb on twitter' or 'politician tries the equivalent of ****posting on twitter and fails'. Also, he has said he's going to run or is planning on it, but hasn't officially declared yet I don't believe.

The point being Trump's every political uttering on Twitter from the day he announced in 2014 to this very day is front page news. And good lord has he given them s--t to talk about. But this guy says something as stupid as any of that and you only read about it on f-----g Breibart, Daily Caller, and Fox News? Bias is found more in what CNN, MSNBC, etc decline to report than in what they do report. It's popular to cry "fake news" which is pretty weak in that what is reported as news is all true. But it's not all the truth. What they decline to cover is telling.

Well Trump was a pretty big celebrity before running for president and I never heard of this dude before he talked about launching the nukes. The media's biggest bias is towards sensationalism, and Trump provides more of it than some dude from the bay.
