"Let's move on, nobody in my family got hurt." is a more honest Republican sentiment than "Thoughts and prayers."

It's not too soon to talk about this guy being an redneck a-hole...

When their thoughts are of Trump's tiny dick and their prayers are of removing women's rights I think I prefer their new slogan.

"We have got to get corruption and evil out of our government, and we have got to elect men and women of honor and courage to get this country and this state back on track."

He's not wrong, but I suspect he and I envisage *very* different end results.

Conservatives are not men of courage by DEFINITION.  And courage is part of honor, so they don't have that, either.

Hey did anyone mention that the civil war went hot year ago and hasn't actually had a truce?

Nobody?

Okay then.

I mean I'd say this might hurt his electability chances, but we all know there are those that would vote for him even if he literally skullfarked Jesus' dog right in front of them. Christ, they'd somehow do enough mental gymnastics to start claiming the dog was actually Satan in disguise with no proof...

There is no reason the USA would look like Aleppo, since both sides want the cities intact.

Let's put it this way: remember how Hilary wanted to go against Trump in 2016 thinking he was such a caricature that he'd be easy to beat? Well Pritzker laid out $25 million against more viable and threatening Republican candidates in the primary so that Bailey would win, thinking it will be a cakewalk for the Dems in November. There are enough mouth breathing morons in this state that his thought process might turn around and bite him on his oversized ass.

No way I'm voting for this pile of dogshiat. For all his flaws and mistakes, Pritzker has actually done a pretty good job.

And you think that the combatants in the Syrian Civil War don't want their cities intact?

Do you think you can fight a modern war without leveling the farking place?  Look at Mariupol.  Look at what a city Russia WANTED to take intact looks like after a battle.

Except not really because Democrats outnumber Republicans by a wide margin in Illinois (which is not true nationally) and Pritzker is generally popular (which was not true of Hillaty). The only chance a nut like Bailey has is if he somehow becomes a hero of the Chicago suburbs. Suburbs like Highland Park.

Not a chance...Corn doesn't vote..As much as Pritz has been a fairly mediocre guy, at least he isn't
on a path to prison for being blatantly corrupt..Which is unusual for this state..This clodhopping redneck
doesn't really stand a chance as long as Pritz doesn't do anything blatantly stupid/criminal. I think Bailey, on the other hand, is only going to keep sticking his shatkickers in his mouth at every turn..Just like this..
He's going to alienate everyone but the far Southern and Eastern racist hicks and not really win over people.
Until the (R) people can find someone Like Jim Edgar, they are going to find it difficult to win the Gov slot..

Of course he wants to move on, it was a rw maga terrorist responsible, this asshat probably supports the terrorism.

This is a built in feature of the cult-like hive mentality the GOP has adopted. It's main purpose is to free GOP politicians of accountability for things they say.

I disagree. Russia did both - or at least had a hand in Aleppo. That's how they "win".

He said this before it was clear it was a RWNJ. Hedging his bets there. You think he would be so quick to "move on" if it had turned out to be a Chicago gang member or Islamist or any other "other" to blame?
 
2022-07-05 7:42:16 AM  
This guy's signs are all over southern Illinois. Right next to the "RED Remove Every Democrat" signs. He's a Trumper. I keep telling me wife that even if I didn't vote straight D, TFG made it pretty easy to dismiss a lot of R's if you simply look up their Trump fealty and views on the 2020 election.

For the moment. A couple more years of right-wing propaganda about how certain cities are filled solely with people who deserve to be met by violence and how they're being burned to the ground anyway whenever there's a BLM protest, I'm sure some of them will be happy to copy McVeigh in a number of choice locations. Add in the nonsense about how people in blue areas are voting multiple times using illegal immigrants and trying to force everyone to be gay trans communists, and they'll probably think they're doing everyone a favour so long as they avoid world famous landmarks.

They already don't value lives in those locations, as soon as they get it into their heads that the buildings don't need to be there as well you're going to see some bombings at least on the scale of the IRA, and they'll be inspired to go further once people fight back or actually try to take their toys when they go too far.

In a normal country that isn't hopelessly broken, this would be the end of his campaign.

He did co-sponsor a bill last year to kick Chicago out of the state, because that would lower taxes for the rest of the state somehow. When you ask him about it, his reply is "why are you so devisive."

I don't think kicking out the largest tax base in the state is the flex he seems to think it is.

Without it, Illinois is basically Indiana.

The kicker of course is that the 4th of July parade in the town he made that video in was cancelled because they hadn't caught the guy yet.

Bailey is such a piece of shiat.  But I'd like to point out that he's also nothing but a troll.  Witness that instead of marching in a parade downstate, where has support, he was planning to march in *Skokie* of all places, where he has essentially zero support.  You know who else marched in Skokie when they weren't invited?  Yeah, I thought so.
