"traitors of America in the political field."

I assume he means Trump.
 
2020-06-11 4:46:07 PM  
Like Bill Barr?
 
2020-06-11 4:49:24 PM  
Sure f*cker. Stars and bars flyers first.
 
2020-06-11 4:50:37 PM  
Like himself?
 
2020-06-11 5:08:32 PM  
No, apparently we make statues to them. But I guess some traitors are better than others.
 
2020-06-11 5:08:35 PM  
...he was specifically referencing people like billionaire George Soros...

SOROS!!!1!

I think Soros is a funnier boogeyman for the right than Hillary, by a long shot.

At least Hillary was actually in the halls of power... Arkansas governor's mansion, NY Senate, White House (as first lady and then nearly POTUS)


Soros? I literally would not know who Soros is if it weren't for the mindless braying of the dumbass right. It makes as much sens to me as saying Kenneth down at the Dairy Queen is secretly running the Illuminati.
"Who? What? ... is he paying well?"

Confederate flag flyers?

NateAsbestos: I think Soros is a funnier boogeyman for the right than Hillary, by a long shot.


He's assuming the worst of the protesters because his scared little mind doesn't know any better.  When backed into a corner, he screams "SOROS!".

This is known.

Scratch a rural sheriff or police officer, you are very likely to find this guy right under the surface. Wherever you live.
 
2020-06-11 7:36:55 PM  
He's also shared memes about saggy pants, Christianity and ice cream.

I hear Soros pays saggy pants to protest with ice cream.
 
2020-06-11 7:39:36 PM  
This is pretty much garden variety idiocy for Georgia sheriffs, tbh.

"Soros!"
"Obamba's a Muslin!"

Move along.

The answer is yes, according to this logic, anybody found in possession of an image of the confederate battle flag will be hanged as they self-identify as a traitor to the Union.
 
2020-06-11 7:50:11 PM  
Hey, I found one of that sheriff's campaign posters.

Subby, to accurately reflect TFA, instead of "finds out that yes, that was wrong and he wasn't supposed to do that," you should have written "finds out that fark you if you don't like it."

SOROS! is code for JEWS!
 
2020-06-11 7:52:17 PM  
Actually, he's very ignorant. We've not made a habit of killing traitors. It's like Tim McVeigh and who else?
 
2020-06-11 7:57:24 PM  
How about people who swore to Serve and Protect and instead became bullies? Can we hang them?
 
2020-06-11 7:57:52 PM  
Yeah we will start with you

I think saggy pants look dumb as hell, but they don't actually bother me.  I wonder why they bother people like that so much.

/actually I don't wonder why
//you know why

Problem is this is a diseased mind that has authority over others. 'Bless his heart and move along' are one of the reasons we keep running into the same problems.

One of my first unfriendings was someone from high school who posted a meme with a noose that called for "frontier justice" for "gang members" and she considered anyone arguing against it in the comments to be soft on crime.
 
2020-06-11 8:03:17 PM  
So, a sheriff in a confederate state wants to hang traitors. Irony is not dead.
 
2020-06-11 8:04:48 PM  
Young also told the paper that he believed former President Barack Obama was a Muslim, who, once elected, "placed them around the country."

This guy needs a straight jacket.
 
2020-06-11 8:05:07 PM  
I agree with him. And he can join the Orange Hairball, Rich Moscow Mitch McConnell, and Barr on the scaffold.

Though a guillotine would be more traditional.

Young told the local Thomasville Times-Enterprise that his initial post, about three weeks before protests rocked the country, was referencing "traitors of America in the political field."
"They're almost like spies," Young said. "They need to be dealt with, and they used to be, but now it seems like it's OK."


This sounds familiar...

It's funny that Soros is demonized by the right's memewing, because his life goal is basically to make as much of the former Eastern Bloc countries as possible into functioning democracies.

I doubt I need to explain who really wouldn't like that.

The Bloods and The Crips's mistake was not calling themselves "a militia."

I like his cloak a lot, but Dark Lord Soros needs at least a week of spa days.

Thanks Dad, I'll make a note of it.

Sure, just start and end it with him.
 
2020-06-11 8:18:51 PM  
He literally wants to bring back lynching. How much you wanna bet Trump references this guy in a tweet shortly?

Traitor refers to certain crimes. Hint: destruction of property isn't one of them.

"George Soros is funding these riots, you know he paid for people in Lincoln's to pull up with pallets of bricks"

I actually heard that this week

...not to be pedantic (oh who am I kidding? Yes to be farking pedantic), but no one flies the Stars and Bars.  They fly the battle flag.

Well sure, if you start with the Traitor-In-Chief, and his Traitor DOJ buddy Barr, and Traitor Mitch, Traitor Gaylord Graham....

go for it!

The Rosenbergs were saints compared to Trump and family and cohorts.  Never seen a better case for public execution on Twitter, just because

Oddly, I saw a house flying the Stars and Bars about two weeks ago... in Massachusetts.

What we have here is a failure to communicate.  These here protestors are against the Confederacy and as such, are traitors.

FTFA: "If you like destroying hard working people's property because of one officer's horrible decision then you are the problem !!!" he wrote.

Another error in the message. It wasn't one officer's horrible decision. It was four, representing 100% of the LEO at the incident.

Now, If applied to LEO across the US, can you see the problem?

So Canada wins for treason hangings. Canada hanged Lois Riel and a Japanese Canadian that tortured Canadian POWs.

Only one person has ever been executed for treason against the federal government: William Bruce Mumford, who was convicted of treason and hanged in 1862 for tearing down a United States flag during the American Civil War. However, this was under martial law, not Article Three of the United States Constitution.


One person. One. Jesus Christ this person is beyond ignorant.
And they are very hyperbolic. F++k them in the ear with an AIDS-c19 needle.
