    Be honest, does ANYONE think this wouldn't wind up happening eventually?

    In typical leftist fashion you want to take one article alleging the actions and motivations of one man and use it in an attempt to tarnish by extension not only the President but all Trump supporters. In return, illustrating only a small percentage of the actual violence and hatred of the American liberal left is certainly fair game.

    If what you want to discuss is that shouldn't you simply start another thread about that? Because what it seems you're doing is "I can't defend the things President Trump says, so I'm going to try and make this thread about something else." :wave:
    tulc(understands why, it's not like President Trump gives his supporters anything to work with) :sorry:

    Since I did nothing of the sort, I will forgive you for your misrepresentation of me and invite you to correct your accusation.

    Oh, please. If you want sympathy you are going to have to try harder than the "pity poor little me" routine.

    When given an friendly opportunity to correct a willful misinterpretation, you get salty and double-down? You certainly seem to be bitter about something. I'll pray for you.

    Sometimes we do not agree on politics, but we must 1) never attack those who disagree and 2) remember, God knows our hearts and minds.

    To be kind is of God and His love, which comes understanding, and there is no room for vitriol and hate.

    Be kind, people. That goes for both sides. The kinder we are, the more understanding we obtain, and the better for all of us.

    I learned long ago attempting to engage you in any form of honest and rational debate is a lost cause, because your only agenda here is spite and petulance. However anyone with even an ounce of intellectual honesty clearly understands why you began this thread with the article you did.

    The NPR article alleges Chain called the newspaper "the enemy of the people." Therefore, at least in your mind, the allegation is true and constitutes evidence to prove Trump, and be extension all of his supporters, culpable and equally deplorable.

    Seriously, get out of the third grade.

    Yes that’s like attributing ANTIFA to the Dem party and supporters for the comments of Maxine Waters.

    Sadly, threatening today is very common.

    Take any issue, and find where something BLEW UP...and you will find idiots out there that hand out death threats, etc.

    Professors have complained about it when they went against something that was popular on campus. I remember a couple of years ago a professor named Bret Weinstein was under attack. He wasn't a Trump supporter, but that doesn't really matter today. The campus he came from isn't coming to mind right now. He dealt with death threats, and the police had to encourage him to pretty much hide.

    Remember the campuses where speakers couldn't come, because the roiters blew things up? lol and then the media/college admins called it protesting? Speakers got death threats too.

    Any viral issue - like that Masterpiece Cake guy - dealt with death threats.

    Left, Right or Center issue. Doesn't seem to matter today.

    The media at times it seems almost encourages people to get all bent out of shape, and allow the nutcases to surface where they have more NEWS to report. Hey! Double duty, and less work for them!

    Problem is once they are the target this time? They seem to like the atmosphere about as much as those that they report on that get the same threats. They like to create the atmosphere for others, and sadly these types of things always tend to turn around and bite you in the butt.

    I'm not sure why they are surprised it's happening to them now. They talk this behavior to death, report on it at times 24/7, and make all kinds of speculation. lol then expect the nutters to leave them alone because they are the 'press'?

    Sadly, I'm surprised it took this long.

    This thread isn't about me. If you want to discuss me you should start a thread about that. :wave:

    ...it's a thread about a guy making threats. I thought it was interesting. That's why I started a thread about it. It doesn't seem to take much "intellectual honesty" to understand that. :sorry:

    ...you do know why someone posts an article isn't what this thread is about, right? It seems you really don't have much interest in discussing what this thread is about so I'm a little at a loss as to why you're posting in it. If you'd like to discuss "Why do people post news articles in forums for posting news articles?" I can't really think of where you'd post it...unless you can find a current article about that subject? Then this would be a great place for it! If you'd like to discuss this article and not the person who posted the article you're more then welcome to do so here. Otherwise you may have to start a thread somewhere else where you can talk about that. :oldthumbsup:

    I've been seriously out of third grade for over 50+ years. :D
    tulc(thinks he may well have started drinking coffee in that grade!) :clap:

    Man arrested for making death threats. Trump is not that man. TDS is strong with this one.

    I agree, the guy doing the threatening does seem pretty deranged about President Trump. :sigh:

    He doesn't seem to be the one obsessed with Trump. His particular obsession seems to be toward the NYT. Trump is at the very least no more to blame for this man's death threats than the Democrat politicians, who paint Republicans as racist, homophobic, misogynists that push granny's wheelchair off the cliff, are responsible for the actions of the man that shot up the Republicans softball game.

    ...he threatened to shoot people in the head because they were running editorials negative of President Trump. I think that sounds at least..."strongly interested in President Trump" to me. :sorry:

    I believe you, do you have a link for that? Because the impression I get is this was a pretty serious escalation for this guy. His neighbors thought he was "a hippy because he wore a man bun" (and may I say I also tend to be suspicious of any guy who isn't Toshiro Mifune that has a man bun in his hair) who "We could hear him yelling at his tv every now and then". :wave:
    tulc(who is oddly proud of himself for spelling Toshiro Mifune correctly before he looked it up to make sure he did in fact spell it right) :oldthumbsup:

    It's all about getting certain rhetoric out there to be seen, it has nothing to do with the veracity of the information. They think the higher they stack the silliness/irrelevance that it will eventually morph into the truth, good luck with that.
