    Been a brutal couple of weeks for the Left. The Colorado shooter, Barry O’s daughters(not his son’s) killing the Pakistani Uber driver in DC, countless assaults on Asian’s and now young Farrakhan today. Ouch, doing some major damage on the false narrative.

  15. It’s a war now. That’s what Donald Trump wanted.

  16. Well some one hate happiness . What is America coming too???? Crazy!!!

  18. Possible shooting? Thats kinda like a little bit pregnant, aint it?

  19. One brother with a knife at the Capitol Police shoot to kill. The White Supremacist storm the Capital, go inside the Capital, kill a police and nobody gets killed or charged. They all get misdemeanor charges.
