Quote
Less than two weeks after a white nationalist allegedly rammed his car into a crowd of anti-racist activists in Charlottesville, VA, another person has weaponized a car to drive through a demonstration in St. Louis, MO.


Demonstrators were gathered in downtown St. Louis for a vigil honoring Kiwi Herring, a transgender woman who was shot by police on Tuesday. After the vigil ended, people took the streets with candles, prompting police to shutdown an intersection near the Transgender Memorial Garden, where Herring’s vigil was held.


The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that an unidentified man drove a black Mercedes into the crowd with his middle finger raised.Several people sustained minor injuries, one person who went over the car’s hood went to the hospital.


Witnesses described the driver as a middle-aged white man — he allegedly attempted to flee, but police later confirmed that the driver had been taken into custody.

Thank god no one was seriously injured, but is this going to be the new norm now?

if you thing that driving into the middle of a crowd is acceptable under any circumstances, you're a thug.

Gays and trannies been targets for how many centuries?  People think this all went away because ... Obama?

Some on the Left, realizing that the DNC is just playing them, are now calling for a permanent Obama dictatorship.  Just like Baby Doc, dictator of Haiti.  Anti-Fa are the new Toton Macoute.

I scored Center on the political test.  Most here scored Left.  So ... just a rumor, that Obama doesn't want to be Sec General of the UN, or Pope of Islam, got used to living in the White House.

I don't see the connection.  Things changed very little when Obama became president, except that many were inspired to see a black man in the White House.  For a Democrat, Obama was surprisingly conservative, didn't want to support gays until he got the polling data, gave raises to corrupt bankers, turned health care over to private corporations (where it already was).  He didn't do these things directly, but shuffled the cards around, and gave new values to individual cards, so that Corporate bonuses became "saving the economy."  Obamacare was such a rightwing ideology, that when the Republicans took over, they couldn't even muster the votes from their own party to change it.

How many people really think Obama emancipated gays and trannies?  I doubt many.  He gave them a nod when the numbers added up, but that's hardly a ringing endorsement of equality.

You weren't really expecting Baruch to make sense, were you?

Reality and narrative aren't the same.  Each party has a false narrative.  I know which one the D party holds ;-(  And I agree, Obama, like Bill and Hillary Clinton, are moderate Republicans, Bernie was the Democrat (he had to be an Independent to be one, once the D party was taken over by the Deep State in the 1990s).  Bernie is a George McGovern type.
