    I wonder if the Red Hats know what happened to the Brown Shirts?

    Accusations invoking Hitler and racism is all the dems have, the outlook for 2020 is very bleak for the dems.

    I guess it's a matter of how one defines "treason." There have been all kinds of wild accusations coming from both sides, and neither side seems willing to cut through the BS and find any actual truth.

    "These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes.

    Overall, we rate Raw Story Left Biased based on story selection that favors the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to half-true and unproven claims, as well as promotion of mild pseudoscience misinformation."

    Heh, I thought about the night of the long knives before reading your input. Same wavelength, perhaps.

    Trump has consistently worked to undermine any institution that could be a check on his power. The intelligence agency and law enforcement, the courts, Congress, and of course the press.

    This is what I am referring to when I speak about his fascist tendencies.

    All the evil being done by the reps is enough to sink them utterly if people would examine the evidence. But the tribal reps just follow their leader and would cheer if their leader used the Constitution as toilet paper declaring himself emperor. Sadly that's the nature of the reps.

    The Christian Right loves this guy. Apparently, they are unfamiliar with their guiding document, and history.

    And riling up fanatics to hate anyone not kneeling before Dear Leader should make any sensible American question his motives.
    But certain segments of society have their narcissistic, money-grubbing conman and serial philanderer to worship as their new Messiah, so they cannot accept that He exhibits any flaws.

    That's a classic right-wing tactic: taking a position and attempting to exaggerate it so it becomes ridiculous. And then attacking others with the exaggeration that was not there in the first place.

    To an extent.
    But one 'accusation' rings true for me - can we imagine what Fox would be ordering its minions to think if Obama sided with Putin over all 17 intelligence agencies? If Obama had said on national TV that we are no better than Russia? Had called people names as a means of 'debate'?


    I mean, that plump, lumpy, bad-eye job having dope that literally puts on glasses and sprays his face orange actually mocked Pete Buttigiege's appearance????

    Such a great Christian man, what with his many adulterous affairs and 3 marriages....

    Right winged Christians have forgotten all about their beliefs about Marriage an sex. " Ah well all Presidents cheat on their wives, apparently harassing women and having lot of affairs is the normal thing to do for rich politicians so what? This is what I heard shockingly coming from my right winged rigid, strict Christian sisters mouth.

    Just throw away your beliefs!

    Sad that a segment of American voters seem OK with a fascist twit in the WH as long as he says he is against abortion and hates leftists...

    That was reduced to four and then only three intelligence agencies after it all came out.

    Any factual inaccuracies in the article, or are you just generic well poisoning?

    There were a few nuggets of truth in the story yet is was akin to digging through a giant turd to find kernels of corn.

    You have a very graphic way with words.

    I will probably steal this one day.
