Wow. Thanks for the report.

What? Have you read anything in the past few days? 100% safety is impossible. But 2 decades without a mass shooting is a good start. Unlike here....


But either repeal 2A or STFU.


This gun rights discussion is exhausting since neither side wants to address loopholes and mental health. They want to register everyone or make every gun legal. There’s too much rigidity on both sides

I'm not suggesting he was paid, you are. I merely suggest that if you are going out, might as well get the best bang for your buck.

You are always reaching trying to pigeon hole me into something I'm not. You and I agree on a lot, more than you can admit, and you try and separate our beliefs with these responses.

This board to me is entertainment, and yes I admit that I have a demented mind, and I love it. A year ago would you have believed a Jussie Smollett event? I'm just adding fuel to the fire on this message board, and getting a very entertaining response from you.

And for the record, I think it detesting to see all these mass murders, abortions and people being killed via capital punishment.


Gil,
again, that's a super convenient "out" for you...
At some point you have to own what you say and not wiggle out with this naive innocent awe' shucks

:tothehand:

Secondly you say I'm reaching
as though you didn't say what you said in print
But you doubled down on it in your next post about how people were pretending to be one thing then another
and then said I was reaching

:dunce:


The protesting and the shooting were 2 different events. you conveniently try and connect dots that are not there. The thought of the shooter being paid never crossed my mind until you brought it up. Sorry if you took it that way but you always look for the negative in my post.

LA Times Crowds on Demand, it's a great cottage industry. :roll:

Paid protesters are a real thing.

Crowds on Demand, a Beverly Hills firm that’s an outspoken player in the business of hiring protesters, boasts on its website that it provides its clients with “protests, rallies, flash-mobs, paparazzi events and other inventive PR stunts.… We provide everything including the people, the materials and even the ideas.”

Our favorite Russian investigation revealed.

Link

The Russians indicted for meddling in the 2016 presidential contest were also behind anti-Trump rallies after the election, prosecutors said Friday, revealing another aspect of Russia’s alleged interference as it worked to sow discord in the United States.

“After the election, the defendants allegedly staged rallies to support the president-elect while simultaneously staging rallies to protest his election,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a Friday press conference.


“For example, the defendants organized one rally to support the president-elect and another rally to oppose him, both in New York on the same day,” he said.

Friday’s indictment filing – signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller – says the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York.

Not just for Dems.

Link

Next time you're watching a campaign rally for a politician, or a glitzy premiere, take a close look at the enthusiastic faces waving banners at the front.

There is a good chance that some are paid performers. If they are, it is likely that one Adam Swart put them there.
Los Angeles-based entrepreneur Swart has pioneered the 'supporter-for-hire' business.
His start-up Crowds on Demand, launched in 2012, has established itself as a popular resource for any party in need of guests.

Yeah that's pretty bad but Republicans still have the lead right now because they first nominated then continued to rally behind so ridiculous a character as Donald Trump. When the Democrats do something like nominate Al Sharpton for President we can say they've caught up.

You've got it backwards as most who use that "TDS" terminology do. The derangement is on the part of those who SUPPORT Trump. You have to be deranged to do that. Rational, thoughtful conservatives do not support him and are simply trying to bring "conservatives" who do support him back to their senses.

But that second picture in particular is really nice.

No, but I did see the thing where he asked himself a question about Trump and answered it:

"Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?" was one of the questions he posed to himself.

His answer: "As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no."


That's interesting on multiple levels.


Yeah......everyone knows that Trump is a horrible leader and President. But they absolutely love his white supremacist soul and agenda.

You're suggesting that a person was paid to murder 50 people
wading through piles of dead bodies and pools of blood to pretend to be something

You are over the deepest end of insanity Gil
I don't know what this guy was or wasn't ideologically speaking
but your plot suggesting this is precisely why fundamentalists terrify me
to you murdering 50 people makes sense as part of some grand scheme

THAT is why fundies are dangerous
Because that line of thinking comes right out of your demented fundamentalist brain as "normal"


Amen! Gil plays the part extremely well.
