Technically it was Chris Wallace who brought up the Proud Boys. I'm not sure I want to blame Chris but he should NOT have specifically mentioned that group. He basically gave him a platform.

How hard is it to say "I do not support racism".

Apparently impossible for someone who does support racism.

Right. We must remember the Proud Boys are Roger Stone disciples. They're not a random street gang.

So? It was a legitimate question and got Trump to lie about knowing who they were.

They think that the day of the rope is at hand.

For those that don't know; the day of the rope alludes to the racist fictional Turner Diaries in which the self-same day of the rope is when the white supremacists get rid of everyone who isn't a white supremacist. It's what QANON has been waiting for.

That's good. That means they're all coming out of the closet.

We need to know who all the racists and white supremacists are at a glance. Maybe they can even wear special paraphernalia, like patches or armbands or something.

To blame Wallace for Trump's behavior is ludicrous.

I said this during the debate, and it's exactly what I thought it would be...
They learned a lot from the Islamic extremists, almost copy paste, but with a lot more cowardice.
Coward boys, that's what we should call them.  Impotent boys, Unimportant boys, boys without balls.  Which chin am I proud of boys...
 
2020-10-01 12:51:00 AM  
Funny how the FBI doesnt shut down the proud boys and every other neo-nazi forums/websites and doesnt force facebook and twitter to do the same. They shut down ISIS websites in other countries but neo-nazis in the US? All gooooooooood.

Most ISIS members were incels and joined mainly to rape women/be given wives and kill infidels.

The demographics of ISIS and the trumpers demographics are the same. Inbred, uneducated, incel pieces of shiat.

I think more of them just are willing to admit it now.
 
2020-10-01 12:56:46 AM  
The proud boys aren't really getting more members; the other racists are embracing them more openly now, and those guys have their own sects that they tend to stick to.
In the past, when I've run into them, it's only been proud boys by themselves, maybe in packs of six or so, going into bars and trying to start fights.
Now they cross into the other racist sects. Trump could've said "3%ers" and the article would've said that THEIR ranks are growing.

By God you're right. Ugh.


I disagree. You cannot blame Biden for citing a specific example of a white supremacist group that has a history of murdering anyone who doesn't fit their world view. You might as well criticize people for talking about the resurgence of the klan or ISIS on account of "it gives them a platform".

Trump was trying to hide behind the vague language he always does, Biden gave him the proud boys as a "just enough rope to hang yourself" bait, and by God Trump hung himself.
 
2020-10-01 1:02:37 AM  
I dont want any trouble. But I guess that doesn't really matter.
 
2020-10-01 1:02:38 AM  
Yeah Wallace should not have mentioned them by name.

I kinda got excited when Biden said Trump is Putin's Puppy because I had posted Trump is the Kremlin's kitty earlier that day.

People like shout outs, they create feelings of legitimacy.

Trump lies about literally everything but he wont lie about his real feeling about white supremacists. White supremacy is one of his few core values he believes 110% in.

Giddy morons want to be a part of something they saw on tv.

Captain obvious reports.

I dunno where the narrative of it pays be a stable, reasonable human being got swamped with bullshiat to the point where this garbage is happening.

But some real important, very basic, shiat is being unlearned or never learned by a big ol swelling gang of dumb dudes with no constructive vision or purpose.

But cool. Keeping making it about ten old dudes all the time and just let all that take its course. Cool cool.

I agree. It was better name a group (and not generic "kkk" or "nazi") to force Trump to be specific. And also to see the specific reaction from them and their new recruits forces this issue into the public consciousness. It turned out to be a good play from Biden and a bow-wrapped gift from Trump.

Trump, ever the projectionist, continually accused Biden of being afraid to do or say anything that might cause him to lose favor of his "Far Left Radical Socialist" supporters.
Imagine that.

Living in the burbs of Vancouver WA, I have a lot of these assholes around. Judging by the increased yelling and middle fingers directed my way, these dumb asses can't follow instructions from dear leader. They are not standing back, by, down, whatever.
And it's too warm to wear my asskicking boots all the time. farking pansies never get out of their trucks anyway.
 
2020-10-01 1:17:11 AM  
oh no!! now there are 24 incels? their group of 10,000 people sent to PDX to stop protests was in fact less than 200 people and the counter protesters just sat around and laughed at them. such a pathetic group of losers. it was one of those things that makes you feel bad vicariously. it was that sad. they showed up to start shiat and everyone just laughed and laughed,

After the musician Talib Kweli drew attention to the tweets, Van Dyke tweeted a picture of an AR-15 with the caption, "Stupid Talib is trying to get a lynch mob on IG to attack my home, job, & family. It won't end well for the attackers." Twitter banned him in response. - Southern Poverty Law Center

Yeah they sound ferocious. On the run from Talib Kweli.

Look, no matter how many of these assholes turn out, there's a majority anti-nazi sentiment that is far too widespread for a bunch of pickup truck-driving fatasses to win. And little Trumpy boy's outburst during the debates let everyone watch that he is basically just a poisonous plant in an almost literal sense of the word, as if it were spraying its poisonous seeds everywhere not even aware anyone was around.

Guys, seriously...you're going to get such an asskicking when you actually get out into the real world I dunno what to say. Save yourselves now and stay home. And if you DO come out, well, alrighty then. But don't say you didn't ask for it.

No kidding. Now the police know that the Proud Boys are following the instructions of the president. It's almost stupid to not be in the Proud Boys...at least as far as the cops know.

The American people do not have a very good track record with punishing violent racists. It's a tough call if a Proud Boys sticker on your car window is going to act like ram's blood when the next police action happens. Do you want to risk the backlash that you'll get from your friends? Or will you hide them in your basement because of you Gavin McInnes poster conspicuously visible from your front door?

It's a real toss up.

The Proud Boys.


1:05:07 TRUMP
Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I'll tell you what, I'll tell you what, somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem.
