The incident led to a mass evacuation of the area for three hours.

No formal charges were filed and the case was later sealed.

Can you say "bribe"?

GFY Jeff. I mean seriously. If MAGAts wouldn't spread lies and hatred for the LGBTQIA community we wouldn't declare them responsible for these people dying. But you don't care. You never have. Just like you don't care about the COVID-19 victims. It's why you can't post under your name.

You don't see how an attack from within -- by those who swore to uphold and defend our Constitution -- is in some ways worse than an attack by our sworn enemies.

You really just can't see that at all.

I believe that about you.

It is worse. When a sitting president attacks the very country that he leads. It is always worse than 9/11. I don't expect you to understand that one though.

This headline is 100% true. 100%. DeSantis is responsible for the attacks. This is what fascists do - scapegoat The Other. Build the hate. That hate is currency. It is political power.

Let me give you just a few headlines from the past 3 months:

  • FBI charges Massachusetts woman with Boston Children's Hospital bomb threat (Sept 15)
  • At least 20 Republican politicians have claimed that schools are making accommodations for students who identify as cats (Oct 14)
  • GOP senator targets TikTok influencer with anti-transgender taunt (Oct 25)
  • Far-right figures appear to be testing Twitter's boundaries for anti-LGBtQ speech (Oct 31)
  • As election nears, some conservative groups have ramped up anti-trans campaign ads (Nov 5)

Not just DeSantis, obviously. DeSantis and the GOP. No greater threat to America than the GOP. Despite that enormously stupid -------- Mike Pompeo says about Randi Weingarten (teacher's union) being the greatest danger to THE WORLD.

This is how absolutely insane the GOP has gotten.

Gone.

Yeah for about 15 minutes but then Liar Bush tried to tell us the absolute lie that Iraq was involved to justify OIL which was just an attenpt by Cheney to steal Iraq's oil. Already the Jan. 6 insurrection has divided the country to a degree we haven't seen since the Civil War.

Meh. That was bound to happen when we elected Obama.
Republicans lost their minds when we elected Obama.

What's happening now is the distillation and crystallization of all that Republican rage being made the centerpiece of their victim mentality -- dare I say Victim Mythology -- by leaders like Trump and DeSantis.

My paternal grandfather was born in Bagni de Luca, Italy in 1900. He went through Ellis Island in 1905.

Interesting how you are willing to take the word of a mass murderer.

You are a magamoron after all.

You go ahead a trust that a mass murderer is telling you the truth.

It's what you magamorons are best at.

But just like the army requires proof of religious objection to war before they grant it, I am gonna need some proof he was "nonbinary" before he committed mass murder before I believe it.

Yes. You did.

You constantly belittle 1/6 by trying to equate it with other attacks on our nation and claiming it pales in comparison.

In reality, the lingering results of 1/6 have been way more devastating to our nation than the shock and awe of "9/11, Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust, Civil War, a mass extinction event, etc." or what ever other event you want to pull out of your stench ridden shht hole.

Also, the holocaust? Why not throw in the Spanish Inquisition? Pompeii? The black plague?

By "mass extinction" you referring to the dinosaurs?

You're one of the most dishonest posters on the DR.

You're emblematic of the Republican abandoning reality. You live in your own world of lies. Created for you by Donald Trump.

The joke is on you bro.

Trumpy started a joke that started the whole world crying. Why can't you see that the joke is on you??

9/11 as horrible as it was was never a threat to our democracy and our way of life. In fact it tended to unite us as a nation against a foreign threat.


The insurrection on 1/6 was still is an ongoing threat to our democratic institutions and our way of life. And your denial of this reality just proves it.

Did you miss what I said in my post about the headline being 100% accurate, or were you too busy being inflamed that I maligned your new Messiah Governor Flop Gun sent by GOD hisself to save us all?

GOP made guns ubiquitous.
GOP is attacking trans people.
GOP is attacking and calling gays and lesbian people "groomers"
GOP is fueling hate and division to levels I haven't seen in DECADES.
GOP is scapegoating everything and everyone.
GOP is blaming teachers.
GOP is blaming immigrants.
GOP is throwing everything they can out there to deflect from their AND YOUR culpability in the roughly 600 mass shootings we've had this year.

F**K the GOP and everyone that supports them. It's way past time for them. Way past time.
