'It doesn't seem reparable. It doesn't seem like it is possible'
In yet another case of Republicans catching blame for the shooting attack, Limbaugh pointed to the case of PBS panelist Mark Shields saying the shooting was a result of Newt Gingrich’s 1990s rhetoric.

But First

The above video, of Bernie doing an "in your face"180ยบ flip of Pelosi's "We have to pass it to know what's in it"  says it all for me. A testement that his movementarians have no boundaries.  That The Bernies are secure in their estimation that followers will only read or listen to party doctrine, and wouldn't know truth if it bit them in the ass.  Which is surely will.  It's almost a joke; except it's not.

Now, on Friday I had something in the Stack here that I didn’t get to, and it was a point that I was gonna make. Since this happened, you know, you have a bunch of different people opining. And there are many people who have sprung up in an attempt to be bipartisan and say, “Bernie Sanders is not responsible for this. Don’t go there. We can’t say that Bernie Sanders is responsible. Bernie Sanders didn’t pull the trigger.” I understand that. But, folks, my point with this is not that Bernie Sanders is responsible in the sense that he pulled the trigger.

But if you read what this guy has posted on Facebook, if you read his letters to the editor, Hodgkinson, if you listen to sound bites, this guy’s rhetoric, the things that he says are amazingly parallel to what Bernie Sanders has said during his campaign and since. My point is that this guy, Hodgkinson and probably countless others, they are not creating this rhetoric themselves. They’re copycats. They’re copying what they’re hearing and seeing in the media and from their elected candidates.


Can you imagine this? If somebody from some conservative organization were caught running around town with a list of names after having shot a Democrat member of Congress, had a list of names of other Democrats, can you imagine?
So the argument is out, “We can’t say that the words of others inspire action. We don’t want to go there.” Of course not, ’cause that would then make Hollywood really in a precarious circumstance. But my point is that we pull up short of the guy pulling the trigger. It can’t be denied that Democrat rhetoric is in fact creating mentally unstable people out there on their side. These are true believers, and they’re subject to it, they soak it up. They seek it out wherever they can find it. When they end up speaking publicly, they regurgitate whatever they’ve heard from their favorite comedians or their favorite politicians or their favorite media pundits.

It’s amazing how close it is. It’s almost like plagiarism. So it’s undeniable that there is impact. When the effort to enrage people and make them upset — by the way, I said last week, the New York Times raked me over the coals in the Sunday magazine for this. But you can find tweets from Democrats, elected Democrats, who reference exactly the kind of thing that Hodgkinson did. You can find elected Democrats who have tweeted out, “Republicans should be lined up and shot.” No less than Tim Kaine has said something like that.

I don’t care what they want to try to pin on, for example, Sarah Palin, that never happened. If that happens on the right, if somebody on the right had ever said somebody needs to be stood up and shot, can you imagine what the left would do with this? Can you imagine this? If somebody from some conservative organization were caught running around town with a list of names after having shot a Democrat member of Congress, had a list of names of other Democrats, can you imagine?

That news wouldn’t be buried underneath some terror attack in London. It would be all that we are hearing about. I have to laugh when I listen to these leftists try to blame Newt Gingrich for this. Mark Shields on The NewsHour on Friday afternoon, that session he does with David Brooks, blaming this on Newt Gingrich, blaming this atmosphere on Newt Gingrich, as though the incivility only began when the Republicans took control of the House for the first time in 40 years.

So the bottom line, it is clear that we have a divide, a major divide in America that does not seem surmountable. It does not seem reparable. It does not seem like it is possible or even likely to find any common ground, when many Americans think that their number one enemy is the other political party, which is a fact on the left. Scary times.

And this impeachment talk and all of this investigation of Trump, it’s all part of that mix. I understand the administration’s afraid to use the word. They don’t go to out and start talking impeachment, even blowing it away and nuking it, defending it, because then you get the word out there. But I don’t think they need to be afraid of it. There’s nothing that Trump has done or even dreamed of doing that’s impeachable. All of this is manufactured. And it needs to be beaten back. But the Republicans so far seem to be standing by idly.

Bernie Sanders is for all practical ....  a communist  threat of  Vladimir Lenin proportion.

I agree completely, it dawned on me that Bernie was not a better alternative to Hillary, that Hillary suppressed. Bernie is a hard core communist, gathering the young impressionable "intelligentsia" to his cause, much like Lenin, with a bumbling grandfather persona. Luigi

A while back, America had a real bad Civil War, so did England and the Austro Hungarian Empire. Not long after Sweden was looking like they would duke it out. Fortunately someone had the clear head to say "Hey, Sven, see those guys over there? They are fucking Vikings, they'll kill the hell out of your artsy fartsy ass." Clearer heads prevailed, Norway and Sweden became their own. America is hopelessly divided, I would tend to say, always has been. There is no meeting in the middle ground because thats where we are now. So, are we America 1861, or are we Sweden? It's time to get over the reconstruction "one nation under God" propaganda and make a future, for one of us at least. And as I've said a million times here "noooo movsie backsies" when you don't like commie-land. -Anymouse

I note that Ossoff got his hat handed to him - the f'in carpetbagger. I cannot understand the temerity - no crust - no GALL of de dims. They put up asshats like Bernie, Shrill and Sanfran Nan and wonder why they look like this? They have no f'in clue and that is not to ignore the fact that the repukes are not that much better. Mccain needs to retire and drool in his porridge.

After the Ossoff loss the words of his followers are "we will continue to resist.......". I think that is the cause of the divide. Their intent is not to work in a democratic republic but to fight the opposition when they have office. When dems have office they lie about what the results of their policies will be and act like Youtube is somewhere in the future. My hope is that their are enough voting Democrats who no longer want to feel like they are suckers. Maybe blacks people will start to speak a different narrative when they get tired of being a sure vote for the dems and see that conservative policies will result in jobs and money.

Young people want freedom and success and the Republicans need to learn to articulate that and have policy that reflects that so that they arent seen as the police state. When the job market continues to improve and young people can move out of the basement, the policies of Socialism will be shown for what they are.

and this is what the Dems really think of black voters.............enough of this and they may get tired of being treated like children.
