As long as the default remains "these white guys can't possibly be terrorists," nothing is going to get done.

Yeah Republicans are very concerned about domestic terrorists.

Of course not, they're freedom fighters if they're white.

I am whelmed that the people who couldn't stop talking about the yugest ratings and nonstop news coverage now seem to dislike the media.

So, truly, they're doing fark-all except sending money to grassroots violence prevention groups. Because governments in this country can't seem to do a GD thing on their own and we have to farm every farking thing out to private interests.

I should have bailed on this shiathole country while I had the chance when I was young and debt-free.

Uh huh.  After four years of the previous president stoking domestic terrorism.

Why he aint in Guantanamo is a mystery to me.

It just seems like some people aren't happy unless something is making lots of noise and not actually doing anything.

"If a kid named Ahmed builds a clock and brings it to school, we know what happens, right?" said Fatema Ahmad, who leads the Muslim Justice League, a non-profit group in Boston. She's referring to a 2015 incident in Texas where school officials called police to arrest a 14-year old Muslim-American student who had brought a homemade clock, mistaking it for a bomb.

By contrast, Ahmad noted concerns that when 15-year old Ethan Crumbley reportedly displayed concerning behaviors at his high school in Oxford, Mich., administrators did not report him to law enforcement.

Honestly, Democrats, by and large, don't have that necessary "tough on crime/terror" mentality the same way that Republicans supposedly claim they have. That also reaches out to law enforcement as well - you'll never get a bunch of liberal minded people in LE to forcefully crack down on militias and proudboy types - mainly because they don't believe in LE as an institution in the first place.

Bill Maher was totally in support of the decision to arrest that kid with the clock. I always laugh when people try to say that Maher is a spokesman for the Left.

As far as I'm concerned these stupid anti vaxxers are domestic terrorists because they have now gotten 900,000 Americans killed. Yes, today we reached another grim milestone

The problem, you see, is that Democrats (generally) want things to be better.

But doing that is harder than farking up something that exists already in order to make it worse (ie, immigration, policies towards LGBTQ people, abortion law).

That's why the Republicans are so "successful." By their standards (see above), they ARE succeeding.

Not sure what "progressives" don't understand about this.

That is what kind of what the critics don't want to happen for people in the same demographic to face the same kind of rights violations and surveillance that happened in the past in the war on ter.

I see him as a self-interested Libertarian. He wants to be able to do whatever he wants and wants everyone who scares him (middle-Easterners) to go away. He then backtracks from those goals to his opinions on any subject. I don't see him as having any real moral position. He just wants to bang chicks, do drugs, and spout off whatever bullshiat he likes without consequence.

//Actually, that sounds pretty good. But I am not rich enough to pull it off.

So long as the phrase is "violent extremism" and not "white," "right-wing," or "racist" violent extremism, this will smack harder against leftists and minorities than it will those actually responsible for the violence.

They actually did arrest the guy who set fire to a police station. I'm surprised you haven't receive your orders to stop bringing it up, comrade.

It's actually quite simple.
The GOP and their Russian allies have declared war on America.
They did it to avoid the impending long jail terms for the GOP's obstruction of Justice and the original Russian terrorist conspiracy that put Trumpski in the White House.

If we Americans do not hang these NAZIs (Communist STASI to be exact) for their treason, they will hang us when they succeed in "Making America Germany Again".

Almost all of them unvaxxed thanks to your side.

Your fellow Trumpers and GQP-ers used the "rigged" election and Trump's resounding loss as an excuse to ramp up and amplify their anti-vax rhetoric, which was already at 11. Your post is a PERFECT example of the cartoon that ZMugg posted above.

Yes, I agree with Subby to some extent here, but IT HAS BEEN AN ENTIRE YEAR and Biden should have had a plan to wipe out the domestic White Christofascist terrorists out of the gate. They are by far the largest enemy the US has faced since the Cold War thirty years ago.
