      Question #1:
      How is our President racist?

      The Governor ASKED for assistance. She will deny the details of that request on Monday on MSNBC

      @Mike The Nazis propaganda campaign involved control of Film, Media and Education….if you don’t see the parallels of Hollywood being against Trump…MSM being against Trump and Educators being against Trump. You truly are the numb nuts in question. I have had the honor on knowing those who fought actual nazis – YOU are a tool.

  2. “… loaded into unmarked vans”. Good God almighty. Just like the Gestapo.

  4. Canadian here. Do 30% of the American electorate really support sending the kids to school amidst a pandemic and secret police snatching up citizens? You guys look like your literally losing your democracy.

      Etothe2iPi Yes! I will believe ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that MSNBC tells me!! They NEVER lie or twist the truth to serve their own agenda!
      Yes! Trump is “Pro Virus” and “doesn’t care about people dying” and is now sending “secret police” to ‘disappear people’ like China does! They are just pulling up in unmarked vans and scooping up innocent people off the streets and taking them away, never to be heard from again and “citizens are terrified’!! And the more times they repeat their Hate-Trump stories the more I believe them!!!! And NO, I am not brainwashed!!

    • @Sal’tripin Guitar & Pedal Co. germany 1930s had 40h workweek and also cafeterias for their german workers. You say stop believing what the media tells you. But the media is leftist owned by zionists, quite the contrary I have to research alternative news sites to find the truth. so yes we agree on something the mainstream media is lies. therefore everything it says about trump is a lie. The same way when fox news use to lie about obama, i agree they lied too, in fact anything mainstream media both left and right is a complete lie. One has to do their own research, and the truth is. There are good people in both far left marxist and far right fascist. But that you don’t want to hear. I’ve gone down that rabbit whole to research both sides, and both come out correct. The difference is which greedy side is one on? Anti-European (aka communist) or pro-european (fascist).

    • I love watching civil wars. Send in the death squads! Send in the military!

      The only people affected every-time(regardless of country) are the same groups 18-25yr old anarchists and communists (because their parents don’t love them). So I’m not affected and enjoy watching the carnage.

    • 1:00 my favorite part 🤣

    • I think those come later. The next steps would probably be a phony terrorist attack, like a dirty bomb in a major city, then a fake assassination attempt on you know who – then a deputizing of loyal tardz, and *then* the death squads

  10. Is this a practice run for when dumpy loses the election?

  11. Hitler and the Nazi’s had what was called “Storm Troopers”, same as we have here. Government thugs.

    So to be clear, when it comes to the pandemic the federal government takes no responsibility as they say it’s for the States to deal with themselves (death toll 140,000 and rising). Yet with these protesters who have killed nobody they send in these unidentified goons who will shoot someone in the face for playing music at them?
    Right, gotcha.

      @Trailin’ Annie Have you listened to what Trump says? He affirms everything MSNBC reported. He threatened protestors with retribution and he does want to ban any measures ordered by states or counties to force the economy back open completely irrespective of the situation of the virus spread.
      So by your thinking your supreme leader is in on it.

      btw: Foreign journalists report the same stuff as “biased for reality” liberal US media.

      you don’t travel much do you? Almost every state has unmarked police vehicles. They are used to catch law breakers
      in the act of crimes. Like the protesters in Portland.

    • They are not secret. The word “POLICE” is shown clearly on their uniforms.

      Agreed. This is classic modus operandi of secret police. Republicans aren’t speaking out against it because it’s happening to the people they don’t like.

      Joshua Valentine nah, local politicians have neutered the police, set violent criminals free and encourage violence – so glad to see the feds come in and restore law and order.

    • wheres the governor and mayor? funny how when times get rough where are they? they should go out on the street and deal with them.

    • Joshua Valentine | July 18, 2020 at 8:53 PM | Reply

      Reed Outhouse No they haven’t. The police need to be defunded and have their qualified immunity stripped. Nothing has happened to them that needs to happen to them.
