Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 14, 2022

Last week, the Anti-Defamation League issued a comprehensive report on the leaked list of people affiliated with the Oath Keepers. The ADL found a substantial number of cops on the list: 373 law enforcement officers (including 11 sheriffs and 10 police chiefs) and over 1,000 ex-law enforcement officers. The report reminds everyone that the underlying problem - the radicalization of law enforcement officers - remains unaddressed by anyone in power.

"the radicalization of law enforcement officers - remains unaddressed by anyone in power."

If only.

Republicans support radicalizing law enforcement.
Democrats tend to not get too involved.

The Posse Comitatus Lives!

They remind me of that scene with Frankenstein's monster and the fire.

Hard to kill, but worth it when you do.

@#1 ... Republicans support radicalizing law enforcement ...

And why not?

The Republicans, if they continue on their current path, will eventually need a radicalized law enforcement to keep those they consider enemies (a.k.a., Democrats) under control.

The Republicans are no longer the party of law and order. The Republicans are slowing morphing into the party that uses law enforcement for their own ends.

And an increasing number of those in law enforcement seem to be quite willing to go along and be used to subvert the Constitution they swore to uphold.

"And an increasing number of those in law enforcement seem to be quite willing to go along and be used to subvert the Constitution they swore to uphold."

Well, considering law enforcement in this country was created to protect the rich, and very much not serve the Constitution, that's probably what everyone should expect from law enforcement.

They already have their MAGA Citizen Army as law enforcement against women.

Smells like the Secret German State Police, the Gestapo, to me.

@#7 ... So...the moderator will yank "---", but let "fuggin" stand...these people are morons. ...

Usually a site like this one has advertisers to please and accommodate for $$$ in order to keep the site running. The moderator is merely trying to keep the site running so you can vent your spleen, and be paid for by advertisers.

So, if we want drudge.com to continue to rake in the awesome advertising dollars, then the site needs to accomodate those advertisers who do not want their product to be seen on the same webpage as the words s##t or f##k or...

If you like this site, accommodate that constraint so that it can continue to exist.

So instead of s&&t, say something like...

pasture pastry
- or -
meadow muffin
- or -
buffalo bagel
- or -
use your imagination.

The English language is fun, so have fun.

But keep in mind that this most august site needs to pay the bills, and the advertisers who pay those bills don't like ---, -----, ---!---, ---, or ---.

(note those are my made up bleeps... :) )

As a lawyer that had to be one of the best bits ever. How many other comedians do you get to study in law school.

The results of FCC v. Pacifica had a fairly outside influence on my childhood although I wasn't aware of it at the time. Growing up in a post-pacifica age I sure became aware of censorship before I even knew what censorship was.

My English Lit professor always told us that use of foul language in conversation indicates a lack of command of the English language.

That advice always reminds me to watch my words ~ except for the times I stupidly hit my thumb with a hammer.

Has a real ring to it, although there's something to be said for Billy Connolly's enthusiastic endorsement of the simple, direct "eff off" - youtu.be

"eff off"

I agree that sometimes there's no other word that can possibly apply.

LAMP's #8 made me think back a few years ago to a right-wing rag called Buffalo Chips.
(located somewhere in Wyoming)

Anyway, "Buffalo Chips" ~ Really?

Amazingly, the right-wing readers never did make the connection.

You haven't lived until you've attended a buffalo chip throwing contest, informally sponsored by Ranier beer, in the middle of the winter in the mountains of Wyoming.

Attended, not participated in. It's an important distinction.

Sorry I missed it. The one and only time I was in Wyoming I was stuck in the middle of an 18-wheeler convoy immobilized to a standstill by a whiteout in the middle of nowhere. It was traumatizing. After that, I didn't want to see Wyoming again, ever!

I have a solution, hire more black and brown officers...

And seriously, how hard is it to do background checks on
their online habits before hiring them? In the government,
employees acknowledge that they 'give up the right to privacy'
when they go to work for Uncle Sam. Law enforcement should be
held to the same level of scrutiny.

yep... for all of their 'Snowflakey Whining'
about how they are set upon by others,
white men with guns are probably THEE
most protected class of people in the
country.

who else gets to strut around a Walmart
in body armor carrying a pistol on
their hip or a machine gun on their back?

anyone?

hmm...that's interesting...
it seems that somebody is paying to shift
threads they don't want to read
further down the reading list on
this site. I just saw it move
down like 15 spots from about 5th
to the top, to about 3rd from the
bottom...

interesting indeed...
