Was anyone else angered by Loretta Lynch's editing of the terrorist's phone conversation?
I find I can't even get angry anymore; after 20 years, the response is all too predictable; of course they'd redact/re-write history. Isn't that how this script plays out? :-( And the sad reality of the sheer numbers of people who actually agree with the perspective - it is Americans/white men/Jews/bankers/guns fault - is staggering. I don't think there are enough people left in power who understand the reality of what is really happening to stem the tide. Most exist in their own alternate reality of Western Civilization=evil. They'll keep on explaining it away, just like the Swedish women who feel sorry for their rapists.
Do you feel that the tide may be turning, or that after several generations of relentless indoctrination it may be too late to educate the general populace? People have become like robots, waiting for programming from their handlers. It's downright spooky.It seems to me that WAY too many people don't even know what western civ represents. Even so-called educated people...aren't. Not in the classical sense anyway. It's crazy beyond belief.
Sadly, I'm of the opinion that it's too late for the general populace if what I see in my nieces and nephews raised in secular environments holds true for the general populace; there is no place for debate. Supposedly, there is no objective reality, but if you disagree with the self-evident "truths" they've been taught (global warming, gender stuff, guns, welfare, etc.), you are evil. There is no room for debate, you are just evil. So I don't even engage it. I just try to let them know I care about them, and hope that maybe some day, there will be an opening to ask a question that might show a different perspective. There are some bright spots, but the rank and file average are ignorant of history outside of the propagandized garbage that they've been spoon fed by "experts", even in more conservative environments. And that generation is now teaching the next generation. I understand why people homeschool; we didn't choose that route, but boy - some of the conversations we have... (though it was a thing of beauty to hear a daughter recount her back and forth with a teacher when she suggested that the upper 1% really ought to be a protected group since they were a minority - to the teacher's sputtering and class's howl of laughter). Maybe rebellion will come, but what will be left?
I have been watching a bunch of Milo Yiannopoulos videos. I think that the rank and file gay person now realizes that the Dems are not going to protect them.Just look at the meme about "People don't need guns because the police will protect them.: After the Trump supporters got assaulted in San Jose (I even read that there was an entrance to the parking garage right next to the exit to the convention centre but police made the Trump supporters walk around the block) , and Orlando Police holding back for I think it was four hours while the MUSLIM TERRORIST murdered 49 people and wounded about as many, it is clear that the government is not interested in protecting the law-abiding private citizen.

If it were a Christian this administration wouldn't be able to shut up from talking about how dangerous Christian zealots are.I cannot believe how stupid they think they are. I think, or should I say hope that more and more people are seeing all of this for what it is.
Trump has been doing a good job at shoveling the sh*t and pointing out the stink. Even Mark Levin jumped on board today. Also uplifting: the ridiculous "sit-in" by slack-jawed, drooling dems today is being mocked relentlessly on social media.
I hope it's being mocked! That would give me some hope for the populace at large. Up here, it's being hailed as a noble thing (and in the posts I'm seeing from left-leaning friends in liberal bastions) - how could those evil Republicans stand in the way of making streets safe??
A Friend on FB shared a post lauding the Dems for their sit-in. I gave links to an article about the Paris shooting and another about today's shooting in Germany.I like the meme that pops up from time to time that says "There are 30 million (or however many) weapons and over a billion (or was it trillion?) rounds of ammunition this country. If we were a problem, you'd know about it."And now we have Charlie Rangle saying that law-abiding citizens should not have guns but his protectors should have guns because, well golly gee, he's special.
Kinda goes along with this thread... over/under until Baltimore spontaneously combusts?
