    If you think Right Wing threats to democracy in the US are exaggerated, think again.

    At a Turning Point USA gathering, Kirk was asked this question. He danced around it. Here is the question:

    On Monday, the right-wing youth organization Turning Point USA had an event during which founder Charlie Kirk took questions from members of the audience. At one point, a bearded man asked one, as seen in video obtained by Media Matters.

    “At this point, we’re living under corporate and medical fascism. This is tyranny,” he said. “When do we get to use the guns?”

    Members of the audience applauded.

    “No, and I’m not — that’s not a joke,” he continued. “I’m not saying it like that. I mean, literally, where’s the line? How many elections are they going to steal before we kill these people?”
    Watch his response. Essentially it is 'We're not there YET.'

    The guy who asked the question better be on an FBI watch list; maybe a visit from them to rattle his cage.

    Clearly, this was a false flag operation by masked Antifa-BLM hoodlums from Muslim Mexico, so perfectly camouflaged and so cunningly deceptive that they were indistinguishable from a bunch of right-wing thugs.

    These people are ignorant, cowardly bullies, whose lives are motivated by overwhelming irrational fear that they try to performatively express as "anger." I think their resolve is as brittle as their courage, and they will be unable to get very far. Whenever people like this get any real pushback, they crumble and whine and loudly proclaim their victimhood.

    Just because the rest of us are peaceful and value free speech, does not mean we'll stand for domestic terrorism. Kirk Cameron has that much right; the moment they transition from nutty speech to violence, they're done.

    I guess that's an ongoing question whenever the idea of "government change" is discussed. I suppose they might have asked similar questions in Russia back in 1917 or even in the American colonies in the 1770s.

    I don't know that there's any wrong or right answer. In the end, those who prevail are the ones who get to answer. If you win, you're a hero, and if you lose, you're a traitor.

    What measure of violence? Blowing up cop cars and setting fire to police stations and courthouses? Breaking into stores and looting them, destroying businesses, smashing windows, and physically assaulting people who disagree with your political views?

    The left decided this fiery-but-mostly-peaceful behavior was perfectly acceptable throughout 2020 when President Trump was in office.

    Who exactly are the domestic terrorists?

    Gotta get an army first. Lots and lots of angry people. Train them, logistics and communications established. Funding from foreign Interests.

    The red tape and bureaucracy must be hell.

    I should know. My galactic robot army is STILL on backorder.

    Facebook is to blame. Propaganda is successful when it triggers your emotions.

    Yep. Not only Washington, but everyone who signed the Declaration of Independence would probably have been hanged for treason and ended up as mere footnotes of history.

    It was a perfectly peaceful rally, and everyone went home afterwards, so can you really call it "violence"?

    Can you name someone who you think is representative of 'the left' who thought it was perfectly acceptable to blow up cop cars, set fire to police stations and courts, or to loot and destroy businesses?

    As for who are the domestic terrorists... the morons who keep threatening to shoot people for not accepting their big lie about the election being stolen.

    I used to have a frubal ninja army hiding in my sig. It was very small, and very sneaky. Saved on shipping costs.

    The trick is to let people establish private armies by themselves, literally privatizing the whole funding and logistics process.

    Most leftists are either poor or believe in just government, so they aren't going to fall for that. Conservatives, though, with their belief in rugged individualism and the intrinsic virtue of private initiative and private enterprise? They are the perfect target audience.

    Yip, just like the tiki bearing white supremacicts who was identified as Democrats posing as white terrorists, this guy was a Democrat planted there.
    No Republican has it in their minds to go kill Democrat leaders.
    If you do find one that say so, he either has a mental disease, or he is an undercover Biden supporter.
    Evidence shows it as such!

    Silly Republicans. You're the ones who voted for the policies that created the corporate and medical fascism you're so incensed about.

    No Republican ever said they are against Corporate and Medical free enterprise.
    It is only the Democrat leaders instigating that Capitalism is a form of Facism.
    No Republican is against any free enterprise economic development, only the Dem Leader Facists, who would go to Charly Kirk's meeting, to pretend he is a far right terrorist.
    Poor Dems, they realy think everyone so gullable to think one of them will say such a thing on a public forum.
    If anyone thinks a White Supremacist is so stupid to unmask himself like that, I understand why some voters for the Dems are unable to see through the Biden regime, and communist onslaught against America.
