Right Wing Violence Rules

WAPO: The New America think tank found last year that since 2001 far-right terrorists had killed 122 people in the United States, compared with only one killed by far-leftists. A study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies last year found that, since 2015, right-wing extremists had been involved in 267 plots or attacks, compared with 66 for left-wing extremists. A Washington Post-University of Maryland survey released in January found that 40 percent of Republicans said violence against the government can be justified, compared with only 23 percent of Democrats.

  1. projection perhaps? a.k.a. psychological transference, according to betterhelp:

    Often referred to as “psychological transference”, psychological projection involves an individual transferring negative qualities about themselves (feelings, emotions, actions, traits, etc.) onto a different individual, institution, or object. Projection allows the individual to take their unwanted feelings and put them into an external threat.

  5. wapo addresses how the GOPers deal with the latest act of political violence

    Attack on Paul Pelosi becomes punch line for some Republicans – The Washington Post

    and from the editorial board
    Opinion | The attack on Pelosi’s husband is not a time for jokes – The Washington Post

    Any decent person would find such a violent assault horrifying. Not so for a number of Republicans and conservatives who have seized on it as an occasion for jokes and an opportunity to spread lies about a political rival’s spouse.

    [gives examples]

    All this from a party that touts itself as tough on crime. To his credit, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issued an immediate and unequivocal condemnation of the attack. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) waited until he was asked about it on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” and said he had been in touch with Ms. Pelosi, adding, “What happened to Paul Pelosi is wrong.” But neither leader has called out those who have mocked and minimized this deplorable act of violence that was so clearly politically motivated.
    They might not want to offend the GOP base less than a week away from midterms. But looking away as jokes are made and lies told about an elderly man being beaten further coarsens the nation’s already toxic politics. Increasing numbers of Americans believe that those who disagree with them are not just wrong but evil — raising an obvious predicate for violence.
    […] Republican leaders should speak out against violence — and against those who make light of it — or there might well be more of it.

  6. Craig… wow… those are frightening statistics.
    If you tried to show that to repugs…  they’ll just deny it.

  7. Man…..i got to go lie down.  Im starting to feel sorry for Ye.  

    And i know, Lucy and her eternal football pull, but i think Liz Cheney has learned a lot.

  8. The jokes are horrible but the attempts to pervert the news coverage is criminal.
    Many of the false reporting stories started with the fox outlet in Oakland KTVU
    The Goopers should be ashamed of them selves for all of it.  Just more lies.

  9. Their super power is that they have no shame.  They take great pride, which does that goeth-ing thing right before they fall.

  10. Twitter thru the fog was still good at getting out fast information.  That had to stop. All it took was a bit of moolah.  

  11. Parler, and  troot social were laughable and ineffective caricatures so…..

    cro-magnon to neanderthals:
    Hey, nice cave ya got here, mind if we hang out in the back there?   We’ll be quiet like the little mouse, you’ll never even know we’re here.””

  12. As Twain allegedly said, “a lie travels halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes”, and that was over 100 years before the internet

  13. Republican lies enabled by Cox owned Fox outlet in Oakland
    In an effort to make it appear a homosexual party gone bad:
    1.  Both the attacker and Mr Pelosi were in their under ware
    2.  There were others not  identified in the house
    3.   Pelosi’s son was there at the time of the attack and let the 
         attacker in the front door.
    All are false.

  14. Pumpkin Head is on a roll today on his website : “The Witch Hunt continues, and after 6 years and millions of pages of documents, they’ve got nothing. If I had what Hunter and Joe had, it would be the Electric Chair. Our Country is Rigged, Crooked, and Evil — We must bring it back, and FAST. Next stop, Communism!”

  15. KGC, that station posted this pitifully lame correction but of course damage was done:

    “CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated what clothing the suspect was wearing when officers found him.”

  16. police body and security camera footage should make an easily winnable defamation case if mr pelosi wants to go that route

  17. I doubt the Pelosi’s would sue but it would be great if they did
    I’m beginning to see lawsuits as the way to go in stopping the liars.

  18. It got the attention of alex jones for sure. 
    And Dominion is going to be harvesting some lying liars too. 

  19. That is appalling
    I hope Nancy P bitch slaps her and won’t let her on the house floor anymore
