    So the news story and incidents in it are false? It is either true or not. I dont buy anything from them and why do leftist media outlets hate them so?

    There has been political violence recently. If you don’t want an “unbiased” source check out Tim Pool (Timcast) on YouTube. He’s a lefty but is one of the least biased sources I’ve seen.

    In the last month there has been a republican candidate getting a concussion while sitting at a bar, a female republican candidate chased and punched, a republican HQ shot up overnight, and I believe I read that another had been firebombed.

    Pretty sure all happened within the last 30 days.

    Didn’t read the link.

    What I’m saying is Breitbart has a target audience that expects information to presented with a certain bias. If Breitbart doesn’t do this effectively, they can’t generate revenue, and has to shutter the whole deal.

    I’d hazard to guess the link highlights low-level criminal behavior that involves a candidate, politician, or has a political ideology as a motivating or contributing factor.

    In the truest sense, political violence not sanctioned by the government is terrorism defined.

    If the government does nothing to address it, people lose faith in the government, and the case can be built for revolution.

    Unfortunately, a crime has to occur before someone can be held accountable for it. That’s the price of freedom. And once a crime has occurred, media outlets have great latitude in how they tell the story, much less editorialize and/or opine on it.

    It'll be along the lines as the IRA type stuff. It's going to be really nasty.

    I'm a subscriber to the 4th turning theory among other theories. We're never going to have a peaceful election again until something breaks. What president after Trump could possibly hold the country together? It's been daily demonstrated just how little power a president has in its current form.

    We're becoming ungovernable at a time when our enemies are growing. China and Russia are getting tired of the U.N and especially the U.S..

    Unless it all pulls together and soon. I don't predict a bright future. I'd be cool with a secede.

    Yeah I knew what you were saying. The truth does have a target audience. Not mortar shelling but still political violence. I didn't know there was threshold to meet a certain level of violence before it became important to you.

    Carry on.

    The truth. You want the truth?

    You can’t handle the truth!

    Or touch the mango, for that matter.

    Because they're resilient creatures :D. I can only handle so much German Shepherd tumble weeds in my house. I also needed an outdoor alert . She stays inside until the weather cools enough for her to handle it. She's a black DDR so she gets hot quick, much more resilient to cold weather. My dark sable DDR will basically destroy any means to keep her in. She climbs 6 foot fences routinely or will literally shred the chain link fence. She grabs it and bends the fence poles or rips the fencing. She cannot be contained, she's ruthless in her drive. I can't weedeat with her outside because she stalks the trimmer and attacks it when in full service. She'll circle around and hit it with speed and with no concern about pain and after a few bloody mouths and a torn up trimmer shield, we thought she's better off in the house.
