Arizona can't be all that bad, if people are moving there left and right?

"If you're a crazy liberal, we're just not interested. The central news, let me call them, I'm not going to call them fake news, but it is fake news to say that America doesn't like Trump. America loves Trump."

The BBC meets Karen.  This is the perfect timeline for that sort of thing, at least.

I can't even imagine what it's like between the politics and the extreme climate.

But if Republicans lose in November this elderly Arizona couple say a civil war is coming and, yes, they will fight. They have discussed it between them, and feel that taking up arms is their best option.

Go for it. I'm a few decades younger, in shape, and am way better at math, science as a whole, biology, and computer science.  I can make drones, do ballistics calculations, advanced chemistry, and recombine DNA to make farking bacteria do some pretty scary shiat if I wanted them to.  And guess what? All of us liberals are varying shades of this.

What can you do?  Just point a gun at something? Drill some oil? Run a tractor? Mine some coal? Pray?

Sit the fark back down and shut the fark up you traitorous piece of shiat.

Vote for us otherwise if the other guys win there's going to be war that we blame on the other guys. Makes sense.

Liberals have guns too, we just don't need to parade them around to assuage our fragile masculinity.

why aren't they already arrested if they are openly talking about shooting people if an election doesn't go how they want?

I once saw the Grand Canyon, from about 30,000 feet up, from a plane en route from CVG to LAX.

That's the closest I ever want to get to Arizona.

Also these two chucklefarks are in their 50s, what kind of soldiering do they think they can do? I'd love to see how far they get in the Arizona sun carrying a 40 pound ruck and a weapon.

Do they think the Neo-Confederates will still pay out Social Security?

Karen and Steve don't want to take up arms. But if Republicans lose in November this elderly Arizona couple say a civil war is coming and, yes, they will fight die as soon as the supply chain that delivers their food and medication gets interrupted.

These are the type people that almost didn't survive having to go three days without toilet paper.

Give it a try, traitors.

Some people on the left are saying they see violent conflict coming because some signs suggest that might be the case, most notably the actual words of right-wingers.

Some people on the right are saying they see violent conflict coming because they hope it is and think if they say it often enough they can will it into reality.

So basically, both sides are bad.
 
2022-10-05 1:57:04 PM  
Karen would like to speak with the manager of America.  And, she is not going to pay for that salad she just ordered and ate because there weren't enough croutons on it and it's all the Democrat's fault.

Then they should probably stop waving all those lightening rods around.

I live in rural Wisconsin and I have a plan.

1) Join the Trumpers
2) Get ahold of a hand grenade I will supposedly use on the libs
3) Say goodbye to my family
4) Set grenade off in the middle of a meeting or gathering of the Nazis

/yes, my plan is basically Jew Vengeance from Inglorious Bastards

If you couldn't handle the Covid quarantines, wearing masks, high gas prices, inflation and supply chain issues then you're definitely not going to be able to handle societal collapse as a result of a Civil War.
 
2022-10-05 1:58:30 PM  
Give the. What they want.  A full on hard core atomic fusion powered civil war.  Have Biden nuke them.  Make the civil war last however long the time differential from the flash to the blast wave is.

Problem solved.

I hate to say it, but yeah. I'm an Arizona resident, very not-Republican (vehemently so), gun owner, Army vet who's been through multiple combat tours. It won't go the way these idiots think it will. Mostly because "the government" has an actual military, while they've got uncle Ray-Ray who's missing a few fingers.

Just "the Beeb" trying to divert attention away from Brexit and the lingering stink of the days when they used to protect Jimmy Saville.
 
2022-10-05 2:01:33 PM  
I would love to see all these idiots that are hoping for a civil actually have to go out and fight it. You know with no beds, hot showers, food now and then. Plus they don't look like they are in great shape and will probably drop dead before they fire a shot. After the war you do have to clean up from the war and that will take longer than the war and you think shiat is bad now after your precious civil war it will be a disaster, good luck getting your meidcare and other government programs you claim you are to rugged and independent to use.

The only way the Trumpanzees could get an armed insurrection off the ground is if a large part of the military defected to them, and I don't see that happening.
 
2022-10-05 2:03:19 PM  
"We talked about history, the economy and even abortion. But it was only when I questioned their belief that the 2020 election was stolen that things got tense. Wasn't it possible, I asked, that millions of Americans just didn't like President Trump and so Joe Biden won the election?

It was Karen who responded, with a distinctly steely glint: "'f you're a crazy liberal, we're just not interested. The central news, let me call them, I'm not going to call them fake news, but it is fake news to say that America doesn't like Trump. America loves Trump.'"


--------

And now I just can't stop imagining NYT Pitchbot entries:

- "Isn't telling conservatives that lots of Americans hate Trump a form of privilege?"
- "If love and hate are two sides of the same coin, America really does love Donald Trump"
- "It may look grim from the outside, but the inside of the MAGA informational bubble can be a beautiful place"

But it's the libs that have "TDS" and are obsessed....right....

Oh we would still bail them out because for some reason people think it's the right thing to do. And hence why nothing ever changes and no one ever learns.
