  1. People need to stop calling them militias, they were terrorists.

  2. Do take note that the cowardly sycophants chose a woman to abduct _MORE PROOF OF THEIR COWARDICE_

      @Siraj Savari ✌

    • @keyth jones They’re ANTIFA. The videos are out with them wanting to abolish the police and bringing down the government. They are the left’s pets. Leftists ALWAYS get caught saying that nonsense, so why keep doing it?

    • To bad most of her citizens don’t like her ,
      They would have never paid for her ransom.

    • I think some of you people carry things way too far, are you saying that an average female is as physically strong and able to defend herself as an average male? ROFLMAO remember we’re talking about average here not Rhonda Rousey

    • Y’all need to start complaining about the woman on your favorite news channels because they spend an awful lot of time on how Trump attacks women because he perceives them as weak, these people obviously felt the same about whitmer, that’s my freaking point!!!

  3. This is what our jails are for. Not some poor guy with a traffic violation. Jail should be for violent offenders.

  4. This is what Trump propaganda is doing and the GOP is not stopping him, so the we the people must.

    • This clearly a lie.  MSNBC doesn’t fact check.  Antifa is myth remember.  Anarchist are myth, remember.  This story is a hoax.  Did MSNBC just gender identify people on top of spreading these lies. That is wrong MSNBC.  Look at all you fake Biden supporters.  If you have not executed police stolen Trump signs Fired Trump supporters then you all are cowards.

      Vote out , the supporters, of terrorists .Vote Biden & Harris 2020.

    • @Uoffend Me Trump and Fox are the greatest liars in modern history, MSNBC is no wear near them for their blatant spreading of propaganda and the majority now know it.

    • @Rosalie Parker someone needs to encourage you to learn how to spell!

    • mook. right on dude!! 🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🌊🌊🌊🇱🇷🌊

      @IncognitoTorpedo 10 different sources including John Bolton who was right next to Trump and doesn’t even like him all say he didn’t say it, Jeff Goldberg who fabricated this is a well known mafia movie buff and the line is directly from the Godfather lol
      TOO easy to disprove.

    • First thing Oct 14th, can’t wait.

      @XXII Elhazaroth Pagangrinder LXXXVIII it’s on tape. Give me a break, Mischa.

    • @William H No…we don’t hate America….we hate Trumps America.

  9. What leader do you know is afraid of strong women…and voters ?

  10. Organization of proud racists at the direction of Trump.

    • This has Crooked Trump’s hands all over it! Remember the failed plot by an American militia group to capture and murder Venezuela president? Apparently, the Venezuela government has said that the operation was ordered by Crooked Trump himself!

      The Venezuela government said that when they interrogated the militia members, that were captured by the Venezuela military, the militia members said that Crooked Trump has discussed and planned the operation with Jordan Goudreau, the militia’s leader, for a while before the operation was taken place!

      Expect Crooked Trump to use these kinds of tactics to kidnap and murder American civilians who are protesting against him if he gets 4 more years! He has already shown he is a shady criminal dictator not afraid to use Putin’s playbook to make people disappeared!

      SS troops were proud also, ….for a few years, ….until they got obliterated.

    • Valerie Galvan | October 8, 2020 at 7:45 PM | Reply

      @Grand Wonder trump is also vindictive. If he cheats his way to 4 more years, registered Democrats will be in danger.

    • Cartoonishly Inept | October 8, 2020 at 7:50 PM | Reply

      Anyone plotting to kidnap someone for political reasons should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Trying to murder the mayor of Portland for political reasons by burning down his condo building with dozens of innocent people inside is still okay though, right?

      Just checking, because if this is our new standard for acceptable political violence, then there are thousands of BLM people who are going to jail as well for a long time.

    • Leslie Williams | October 8, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Trump, and is supporters, are American greatest enemy . Vote them out.

  11. Why VOTING and the faith in the voting system is SO important.

    • And when you vote remember they are the left’s ANTIFA scum with videos of them wanting to abolish the police and bringing the government down. 2 things the right would never do.


  12. why do this country allow terrorist to hide behind freedom of speech?

    • It comes with the territory of free speech. Sometimes people are venting frustrations sometimes the are plotting terrorist attacks. There is a lot of ground in the middle of those two people.

      @Chris E …..Not the people threatening to kidnap a governor while possibly killing cops and civilians ?

    • Ken Albertsen | October 8, 2020 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      …..and to hide behind the 2nd Amendment, (which doesn’t apply to them).

    • @Richard Alderman in my opinion, the moment she said she would defy the ruling of the supreme court in her state, she became a tyrant. Doesnt make what those people plotted right, but i can see where they were coming from. No one deserves to be hurt, and no one deserves to have thier rights trampled on by a despot either. Honestly this is one of the few things perpetrated by a leftist organization recently where I can say i agree in principal, if not on the execution. Its a tough question, at what point does it become the duty of the people to act? It wasnt now, but it wasnt far off either. One thing is for sure, we need to send a strong message to certain states(mine included) on election day, that this kind of authoritarianism isn’t lawful, and it wont be tolerated. All my opinion of course, your entitled to yours.

    • Chris E why don’t you call your daddy tyrant

  14. *_No one:_*
    *_trump: fine people on both sides_*

    • Big Mike Hahahaha. First off I’m not white. Second those slave owners fought against the republicans to keep their slaves didn’t they ? While republicans freed the slaves.
      And if you read Harris’s dads book. Her grandfather own 89 African slaves on his Jamaican plantation .

    • @David Hale and like I said, when you support the the idolization of traitors and slave owners, when you support symbols of racism. Your not very fine people. That’s what everyone one there was protesting for. They are no different then any White supremists or kkk.

    • Big Mike oh it’s activism when the left does it. But it’s hate when the right does the same thing. Got it you’ve showed your two faced hypocrisy.

    • Big Mike BLM is no better then any white suprematist group. They both seek superiority not equality.

    • David Hale oh yes I can comprehend,that’s called racist,simple as that.
      Don’t try be smart dumass

    This the kind of politician the US need. Tough, clear and American. For everyone.

  17. donny is the guy who ignores the American bounty hunters sponsored by Russia and the same guy to shout a rallying cry for the Proud Boys to stand by. I guess some were impatient.

    Militias is the wrong word. The word for people who do this is “Terrorist”

      @Victor Viterbo Its a bullsh’t story like 90% of the sh’t on MSM. 90% of this sh’t is propaganda to brainwash the masses. CIA Director William Colby, “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
      CIA Director William Casey, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false”

      Yashar’el in Captivity no seriously, you don’t have to take this from NBC, you can take this from the actual FBI

    • Adam Parisi Calling BLM protesters terrorists is a dangerous road to go down. It creates an us vs them ideology
      “us” being the American people and “them” being BLM Protesters and Anti Fascists.
      I’ve heard a lot of people refer to BLM as if they’re not Americans too.
      But calling BLM protesters terrorists is also just inaccurate, over 90% of the protests are peaceful. So maybe don’t do that.
