  3. A serpent can shed its skin but it’s still a serpent. And they need to stay in jail for a very long time. Because what they did was a federal crime.

    Why dont they move to Russia? They would be much happier there.

  7. The department of justice has repeatedly said that white supremacists, KKK and Neo Nazis are the worst threat to our security. Yet Rump thinks there are good people on both sides and does not condemn them and asks them to stand by. Vote him out people!!!

    Fascist extreme radical far right hard right wingers are lucky that there are no left wing militias in blue states.

    • @Filthy P I’m antifa. Meaning, I’m anti-fascist. I haven’t destroyed any property or businesses lately.

      You just have ANTIFA beta males who like to light people’s businesses on fire whenever something hurts their feelings. Too cowardly to do anything other than vandalize things and burn innocent people’s property.

    • Trumpers think us Democrats and progressives don’t own guns. Lol the delusion is real

    • @Filthy P Exactly. The left are deranged!

      Filthy P Exactly but “ANTIFA isn’t an organization, it’s a thought” is what they believe because biden said it.

  9. When you tell people to Liberate Michigan, How did you think people would take that? Think before engaging Mouth please!

  10. He got kicked out of a militia, so he started his own? Not a red flag at all. What’s the term… American Taliban?

  11. Trump isn’t president for America. He’s only president for his supporters.

  12. Just a few months ago, Donald Trump tweeted “Liberate Michigan” dangerous rhetoric from the President encouraging violence.

  13. Even though this story is absolutely critical to talk about, democrats remember: the key to winning the election is to talk about COVID. When covid is the top story, trumps polls drop

  14. “he was in a militia and he got kicked out”
    ….whose red flag is this?

  15. didn’t their compound have a flag that said “give me liberty or give me death?” WEREN’T THEY ALL TAKEN ALIVE? LOSERS LOL

  16. You take away their guns and they’d be a bunch of ninnies.

  17. “That Woman in Michigan… “. DJT
    1). This character thinks Women are Aliens ? Or what ?
    2) Besides 1861—- There has never been a President who encourages Division. , Hostility
    and Violence
    Any Solutions ? Yes. Only one—— your 1 single Vote will be more than enough to vote him out
    But it is Critically needed.

  18. The current U.S. President, is encouraging domestic terrorism in this country. Let that sink in for a moment.

    These groups have proven time and time again that they are more than willing to engage in violence and domestic terrorism on Trump’s behalf. Like Alqaeda, Trump is OBL to these MilitiaTerrorists.

  19. Hate is a Cancer. Left untreated it kills.
    America need’s to eradicate this cancer called fear and get healthy again.

  20. Its been said that “the fish rots from the head” and this is true, and so does a nation. And the insidious rot that has gripped this nation, can be traced directly to the occupant in the Oval Office..

    “I think my rhetoric brings people together,” Donald said that last year, just four days after a 21-year-old MAGA supporter posted an anti-immigrant message online and then at a Walmart in El Paso, TX, taking the lives of 22 people, and injuring dozens of others.

    A nationwide review conducted has identified at least 54 criminal cases where Trump was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault.

    After a La.tino gas station attendant in Gainesville, Florida, was suddenly pu.nched in the head by a MAGA supporter, the victim could be heard on surveillance camera recounting the attacker’s own words: “He said, ‘This is for Trump.'”

    When police questioned a Washington state man about his threats to mu.rder a local immigrant, the suspect told police he wanted the victim to “get out of my country,” adding, “That’s why I like Trump.”

    Reviewing police reports and court records, the review found that in at least 12 cases perpetrators hailed DJT in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically assaulting innocent victims. In another 18 cases, perpetrators cheered or defended Trump while taunting or threatening others. And in another 10 cases, Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant’s violent or threatening behavior.

    The review could not find a single criminal case filed in federal or state court where an act of violence or threat was made in the name of Obama or Bush.

    The 54 cases identified are remarkable in that a link to DJT is captured in court documents and police statements, under the penalty of perjury or contempt. These links are not speculative – they are documented in official records. And in the majority of cases, it was the perpetrators themselves who invoked DJT’s name in connection with their case, not anyone else..

    Trump is the chaos and disorder president. He is the cloven hoofed purveyor of fear & loathing, of pandemics & death. He is a provocateur of mayhem & upheaval. He is a merchant of lies & deception. And he is trying to create an America in his own image: vile, dark, hopeless, bleak, backwards, malignant, grotesque, ignorant, selfish, indecent, malicious, debased, indifferent, and malevolent.

    Trump and his followers are exactly what Voltaire was talking about when he said: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
