Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Max Boot: We are at the greatest peril since the early 1970s " when the threat emanated from the left " of a violent insurgency in America. Indeed, the scattered terrorist attacks we have seen in recent years might be the early stages of such an uprising. If we see a full-blown insurgency " something that becomes more likely if Trump runs and loses again in 2024 " it would bear roughly the same symbiotic relationship to the GOP that the IRA had to the Sinn Fein party: It would be the armed wing of a larger right-wing movement. Trump made the relationship explicit when he told the Proud Boys, an armed group that later took part in the Jan. 6 attack on Congress, to "stand back and stand by."

The first IED will be laid by a Trumpite fascist, and kill a school bus full of kids the GOP saved from abortion.

No AngryDrunk, I can't. If you want me to read an article that has a incendiary headline made up by a poster here, then they should post a free source with ads or pay for everyone to view it.

"headline made up by a poster"

Headlines are max 80 characters here. They often have to get shortened.

Nobody really cares about the headline.

Who sees it anyway?

"Nobody really cares about the headline."

Somebody cared enough to call it "made up" and "incendiary."

Right wingers on the verge of going all Mad Max and people here just argue about the headlines?

Nothing a couple of calculated drone strikes couldn't take care of.
Don't bring guns to a drone fight, you'll lose.

We can't even defeat an unarmed insurgency that began on Jan 6.
