Tennessee Democratic Party Official: ‘White Male Gun Nuts’ Are the ‘Biggest Terrorist Organization on the Planet’

Democrat Phil Bredesen is running for Tennessee’s U.S. Senate seat as a pro-gun moderate who can work with folks from across the aisle. If that’s the case (which it probably isn’t), his own party’s apparatus is doing a great job undermining those efforts.

The state’s Democratic party founded “Tennessee Victory 2018” to elect Bredesen to the Senate, but its communications director, Mark Brown, has come under fire after a recent expose by the Washington Free Beacon. The Beacon found, among other things, that Brown’s views on gun rights and gun owners don’t line up with Bredesen’s claims.

In 2015 Brown posted on Facebook that “white male ‘Murican gun nuts” are “the biggest terrorist organization on the planet.”

Brown’s bombastic Facebook posts aren’t the only evidence that Bredesen isn’t what he claims. His campaign released an ad in September in which the candidate shoots clays while bragging about his A rating with the National Rifle Association.

The problem? That rating is nearly two decades out of date.

“It’s not 2002, you’re not governor and you’re not A-rated by the NRA,” Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA’s Political Victory Fund tweeted at Bredesen in response to the ad. “It’s 2018, you have earned a D rating for turning your back on self-defense and supporting the Hillary/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda. @VoteMarsha is a 2A champion. You’re not.”

Cox finished the tweet with the hashtag “#stoplying.”

“Phony Phil is caught talking out of both sides of his mouth once again, and the NRA is right to call out Bredesen for his false claims,” Scott Golden, Tennessee Republican Party chairman, told the Beacon. “Gun owners and all Tennesseans who care about our Second Amendment freedoms recognize that Marsha Blackburn is the only one in this race who will stand up to the national Democrats’ radical anti-gun agenda.”

That radical agenda could make it difficult, if not impossible, for Democrats to pick up seats in red states like Tennessee. Republican nominee and Bredesen’s opponent Marsha Blackburn currently has a 14-point lead in the race that September polls said favored a Bredesen victory.

The House is a different story. The most recent analysis gives Democrats an 83 percent chance to regain the lower chamber. If that happens, Dems plan to pursue their gun control agenda, even though a Republican-led Senate likely won’t follow suit.

“If we get an election where we replace 40 or 50 members of the House … we can pass a background-check bill or domestic violence legislation,” Mark Kelly, the astronaut and husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords, said in Pennsylvania last month.

Whatever happens in November, Second Amendment supporters can only hope the President will remain committed to his pro-gun stance and use his veto power to keep gun control measures off the books.

    With 16 million AR type rifles, and approximately 400 MILLION privately held firearms in the U.S. it would be obvious to the world that if “gun owning White men” were a terrorist organization. These people will say anything to get a headline. A shame they don’t use their platform for REAL reform for REAL problems.

  • Mike Watkins March 2, 2019, 12:15 am

    I don’t live in Tennessee, but I sent money to Marsha Blackburn’s campaign. And she BEAT this lying liberal Democrat! YEAH!!

    Don’t live in Missouri either, but sent money to Josh Hawley’s Senate campaign, and he BEAT Missouri’s lying liberal Dem senator!! DOUBLE YEAH!!!

    I encourage everyone to do the same, support conservative 2nd Amendment-respecting candidates even if not in your own state.

  • Gary Hull March 1, 2019, 10:06 am

    The demoncratic left basically qualifies as a terrorist organization.

  • Mike Watkins October 31, 2018, 1:33 pm

    Somewhere well above 70 MILLION gun owners in the US. Responsible and mature folks (with a few idiots thrown in). We the American gun owners are not all white people either—see comment by Sly below—patriotism is NOT limited by skin color.

    Yes, if WE were the problem, it would have been totally obvious 100 years ago. But the left wants to hold us responsible for the actions of a tiny number of insane persons. (Actually some of the insane murderers in our recent past have been proven to be liberals too!)

    Maybe we should say Diane Feinstein and Mazie Hirono and Maxine Waters are whores, because they have the same physical organs as other women who practice prostitution.

  • Alan October 24, 2018, 5:23 pm

    Hmm, and there is credible evidence to suggest that those “White Male gun nuts” are mostly Democrats.

  • Chris Baker October 21, 2018, 11:42 pm

    I’d just like to point out to Mr. Brown that if what he said was true and that we white American male gun owners were all terrorists, he would have been dead a long time ago, along with most of the constitution hating democrats.
    That inconvenient fact is ignored completely by the liberal press because as my younger sister once said about my favorite news network, all of her favorite news networks are a bunch of liars, while mine (fox) usually tells mostly the truth.
    I find it disgusting that anyone in government would be so hateful of American patriots and so disdainful of the constitution that certifies their right to say these lies.
    It’s just a pipe dream to think that we might actually have honest press and honorable representatives in government.

  • Greg James October 21, 2018, 2:39 pm

    Why are polls still discussed? I don’t know about you, but I either say nothing or I lie to pollsters anymore. I do this not because I am ashamed, I am not the one destroying property and threatening people, I do it because it is none of the pollsters business. None. Never was. Never is. And never will be.
    I am tired of certain entities believing they have a right to know what I think. Or, even worse, they believe it’s my duty to tell them.
    I can’t stop the under educated people in California and New York from being led around by the nose, by their political leaders. But I refuse to be a sheep.

  • Just THINK October 21, 2018, 11:13 am

    Once again the division and ignorance is rampant. Please READ instead of REACTING. This bullshit is ALL just to divide us. Bredesen didnt say shit about us “white gun nuts”. It was a DEM party communications director. Best I recall Phil did a decent job as Governor. Here in east TN all we hear from Marsha are attack ads. Shes complicit in perpetuating the opiate problem.
    No one will argue that point. So it’s to crap like THIS. BOTH sides are Bullshit. Please wake up people. We are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. The ones that deserve our ire are the ones CONSTANTLY dividing us. Including the click bait media cretins. Gun control just like abortion rights are a divisive red herring. THEY(political elites on both sides) are trying to keep us fighting while they gut this fatted calf. NO ONE will succeed if they come after our guns. And I’m NOT saying they wont TRY.
    Flame on all you want. This country is in the shitter and our “elected” officials are spreading their cheeks as we speak. I’m sorry if its graphic. But it’s TRUE and just like yall, I’m pissed. Nothing wrong with that, but in begging, get pissed at the right people

    • Alan October 24, 2018, 5:34 pm

      “Just THINK” about this. the history of past Democrat attempts to ban or severely restrict guns is ALL Democrat legislation, and much of it has been aimed at law abiding people, and NOT at the criminal element.
      So your pathetic plea is just that, pathetic.
      As to being in the “shitter”, methinks you carry on too much, if it’s such a shit hole, why is there a band of ‘migrant people’ trying to get in?
      Flat out, no matter how well a Demmie does when in power, if they get on board with gun control (and they ALL are, it’s a prerequisite in the Democrat Party) then they are suspect, and cannot be allowed power.
      The fact that this escapes you baffles me, it’s as plain as the nose on your face.

      Why is it that d. Lemon, Al sharpton, those anti Americans on the view, queen james, along with all those wannabe gangster rappers constantly tell the world how cops are out killing innocent blacks, and how white people are racist, yet those frauds all intentionally live in majority/ All white communities? Aren’t they terrified they will be hunted by the racist cops, or have their mansions surrounded by white men in hoods? Last I checked their were plenty of homes/ property available all black neighborhoods. Lebron James is building a massive home in Beverly Hills, how will he survive the white madness. The Obama’s bought $15 million mansion in a neighborhood so white it looks like snow year round. Those rappers with all that so called street cred all move as far from the black ghettos they claim to represent, what will they do for protection in Malibu. What’s wrong I thought Al sharpton wanted to make those communities better. It’s easy to cherry pick 1 shooting out of hundreds that fits the political agenda to make cops and whites look like they are responsible for the murders/ violence, and completely ignore the giant cultural problems that are molded into the black youth by rappers, ball players and left wing politicians who don’t have the stones to stay and live amongst the very people they pretend to care about.

  • Josh October 19, 2018, 7:09 pm

    Bredesen can kiss grits. I’m not sure how he defines nuts, but white, male, and gun are constitutionally protected variables that he has unified into a single group to demonize for political ends. It’s sad that he does this. Just another POS politician, responsible for the divide in this country. All the other commenters on this are my fellow Americans and I love them. I’ve never had trouble getting along with a neighbor. It’s just when poophead politicians say divisive things like this that tempers flare. If he defines me as nuts because I own a gun and I meet those other qualities, I wonder if he’d retreat from his statement face-to-face with me, a retired, disabled veteran. I mean him no harm, but I think his rhetoric is insulting. Don’t worry, I won’t lose a second of sleep over it. : ) I hope a better person defeats him for Senate

    I am not white, but Black. I took an oath in Sept 1967 to defend the Constitution and Democracy. I gave my youth from Sept 1967 until Sept 1992 USAF 24 years and 1992-1995 USN Civil Service. That oath I took is still in effect and will be until i die. I will not allow a Russian, North Korean and any other foreign or domestic enemy to set foot on this soil. I am a gun nut, i have plenty of guns and plenty ammunition for that purpose. When it come to our way of living skin color does not matter. If you believe in protection of the Constitution and Democracy and not the Confederate Flag, you are my friend. I do not support The Gutter Rat because he told us he is a Russian Sympathizer and Lover guilty of treason, I also drop the NRA for Laundering Russian money and donating it to Trump, but I’m as good American as any of you. I fought for my freedom, what did you do??

      There is NO evidence that any monies sent to the NRA were in any way connected to criminal activities, or it would be ALL over the Left Wing media.
      And I for one, would LOVE to see the rest of the world set up their Governments as Representative Republics with specifically enumerated individual Rights for their freedoms as our Constitution does.

    Before my mother died she left the Democrat party. Her words to me were the Democrats no longer represent her core values.
    She had held the Democrat party line for the past 60 years. Until Obama and the leftists came to power.
    I was never a Democrat. I saw Johnson for what he was, an evil man. Now like then there is a leftist wave sweeping across our nation.
    What the leftists fear most of all is the individual free thinker and gun owners.
    There are stupid people born everyday. That is precisely who the Democrats appeal to.
    People too scared to make it on their own. Fall into the group think of the Leftist hive. Always looking to provide handout or so called free stuff provided by the tax payer.
    Caught up in the Hollywood culture of victimhood piling people into colored boxes. The black box, the yellow box the brown box now the horrid white box.
    A party that no longer fear God or accepts the Almighty.
    Has released its minions into our streets to terrorize the just and good in our nation. On November 8th America shall stand and defeat this evil as we have defeated evil all around the globe. We must never surrender our guns to these monsters. All one needs to see what their plan for you is. Look at the pestilence they create in the cities they preside over. That is precisely what they have in store for you!

    I can count on no fingers the number of people I have terrorized with or with my firearms. I am in the firearms business. I deal on a daily basis with the “white gun nuts”, as well as every other ilk of people who enjoy shooting. NONE of them have terrorized anybody. Your statement is so contrived that even I who has become jaded to the liberal vitriol was finally offended.

  • Harry October 19, 2018, 11:14 am

    Everyone who owns a gun is a terrorist to the Democrats because a gun is the fine line between being owned by someone or being self protected. We have fought several wars to let the liberal thinking non tax paying people into this country. Now the Democrats want to use their votes against our freedoms. The Democratic party followers are people who need someone else to think for them. The ones that you see on TV are educated way above their intelligence. Look around folks the old Democratic party is not what it used to be.

Liar, Liar, Liar, since Trump was made President they have shown the Country and the World just how far they are willing to go to get back what they lost.

    Firearms Control = People Control = Mass Extermination… as History has proven.

    The people we elect or hire for public service should be screened for latent or overt gun hatred, and disqualified if such hatred is found, before it can do any more harm to our nation and its values.

    Firearms save lives. firearms stop crime. Firearms are why America is still free. The history of freedom is inextricably tied to the development of weapons (an interesting study, by the way, if you have the time to examine it). Good people need firearms. Efforts to end that are immoral and unjust, and when done by government, is a direct failure to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.” That’s a violation of the oath of office, which should lead to removal from office and possibly even criminal charges.

    The right of decent private citizens to personally possess, transport, and responsibly use arms without government interference is the ultimate freedom and the main pillar supporting all other liberties. Few cultures have allowed their general population access to weapons, the tools of power, to the same degree as the United States. Instead, most societies have restricted the keeping and bearing of arms to a select few power brokers and their agents, often resulting in oppression on a grand scale.
    Despite a massive amount of historical evidence to the contrary, there is a substantial body of Americans, many occupying positions of influence, who contend that the abrogation of the Second Amendment is the quickest path to domestic tranquility. Since this is as absurd as advocating blood-letting as a cure for anemia, it would seem advisable to question the motives and mentalities of the gun control advocates themselves.
    In my observation, weapon prohibitionists can be broken down into seven major categories. Even though their motives may vary they all pose a mortal threat to liberty.

    The opponents of gun rights come in four fundamental categories:

    Utopian Idealists – Dreamers willing to ignore human nature (anger, hostility, temper, greed, lust, hunger, poverty, want, megalomania, social pathologies, etc.) in the vain hope for a world where no one ever needs to defend themselves or others; Result: misguided efforts to disarm the public since no one should ever be capable of exerting lethal force for any reason. Fairly rare.

    Routine Bigots – Ignorant gun haters who, generally, have never actually seen a real gun much less fired one, and hate what they don’t know; strong corollaries with race haters; Result: Vigorous anti-rights profile if left alone, however they often resolve their blind hatred when education removes the ignorance — frequent anecdotes of such folks “converting” after their first time at a range. Quite common.

    Hoplophobes — Unfortunate souls afflicted with a phobic terror of firearms, deserving of pity, and in need of medical attention; Result: Though they should never be involved in setting policy on self-defense, national security, or Second Amendment rights, they often insinuate themselves into such positions, their need for treatment goes unattended, and they cause grievous social harm. Easily mistaken for plain bigots. Too common.

    Power Mongers – Like some at the U.N or many anti-gun-rights politicians, they know full well that an armed public interferes with their plans, and they insidiously use lies about the gun issue, and “disarmament (of you but not them) as a road to peace” as a power base and source of support; Result: truly evil, tyrants’ who ultimately suppress human rights, contribute to global genocides, live an elite lifestyle, care not for their fellow citizens. Rare but extremely dangerous.

    The right of decent private citizens to personally possess, transport, and responsibly use arms without government interference is the ultimate freedom and the main pillar supporting all other liberties. Few cultures have allowed their general population access to weapons, the tools of power, to the same degree as the United States. Instead, most societies have restricted the keeping and bearing of arms to a select few power brokers and their agents, often resulting in oppression on a grand scale.
    Despite a massive amount of historical evidence to the contrary, there is a substantial body of Americans, many occupying positions of influence, who contend that the abrogation of the Second Amendment is the quickest path to domestic tranquility. Since this is as absurd as advocating blood-letting as a cure for anemia, it would seem advisable to question the motives and mentalities of the gun control advocates themselves.
    In my observation, weapon prohibitionists can be broken down into seven major categories. Even though their motives may vary they all pose a mortal threat to liberty.

    Many of those in favor of oppressive firearms legislation are best classed as elitists. Elitists frequently identify with a peer group based on wealth, power, rank, social status, occupation, education, ethnic group, etc. and perceive themselves and their peers as inherently superior to and more responsible than the “common people”, thus more deserving of certain rights. Since elitists practically consider those outside their class or caste as members of another species, that most anti-elitist list of laws, the Bill of Rights is viewed by them as anathema. Naturally, the Second Amendment is their first target as it serves as the supporting structure for other nine amendments.

    Another type of individual who favors the restriction of private gun ownership is the authoritarian. Authoritarian personalities are characterized by their belief in unquestioning obedience to an authority figure or group and a disdain for individual freedom of action, expression, and judgement. Those with authoritarian personalities function well in symbiosis with elitists occupying positions of power. Because authoritarians repress their desires for autonomy they harbor a deep resentment toward free and independent thinkers. Of course, authoritarians do not want firearms in the hands of the general population as this constitutes a major obstacle to fulfilling their pathological and obsessive desire to control people.

    It goes without saying that career criminals would like to see the public disarmed for obvious reasons. A well-armed population makes crimes such as assault, robbery, and burglary hazardous for the perpetrator and this is bad for “business.” Also, even non-violent or “white collar” criminals live in constant fear of retribution from the public that they financially bleed and would therefore prefer that the public be disarmed. Evidence supporting this hypothesis can be gathered by studying the Second Amendment voting records of those legislators who have been convicted of willful misconduct.

    Cowards are easily or excessively frightened by things and situations that are recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful. It therefore stands to reason that the mere thought of guns and the circumstances in which they are employed causes them abnormal amounts of stress. Rather than admit their weakness to themselves or others, some fearful types jump on the anti-gun bandwagon and purport moral superiority to those “barbaric” enough to employ lethal force against armed assailants by claiming various humanitarian and pragmatic motives for allowing evil to remain unchecked. Many of these individuals harbor an envy induced resentment toward anyone with the means, skill, and will to successfully stand up to criminal aggression.
    The desire to assert oneself exists in nearly everyone, wimps included, so cowards seek out tame enemies against whom they can ply their pitiful brand of machismo. Instead of the sociopaths who commit acts of wanton aggression with guns, guns themselves and responsible gun owners are the main targets of their attacks. After all, real criminals are dangerous, so cowards prefer doing battle with inanimate objects that do not have a will of their own and decent law-abiding people whose high level of integrity and self-discipline prevent them from physically lashing out against mere verbal assailants, however obnoxious they may be.

    Ideological chameleons follow the simple social strategy of avoiding controversy and confrontation by espousing the beliefs of the people in their immediate vicinity or advocating the philosophy of those who scream the loudest in a debate. Quite a few supposedly pro Second Amendment public officials have shown themselves to be ideological chameleons when they supported restrictions on the private possession of military style semiautomatic rifles following recent atrocities in which such firearms were employed. Like their reptilian namesake, people who merely blend in with the ambient philosophical foliage seem to have little insight into the moral and social ramifications of their actions. Political and/or economic gain along with avoidance of confrontation are their only goals.

    Security monopolists are those members and representatives of public and private security providing concerns who want the means of self-protection out of private hands so that they can command high fees for protecting the citizenry against the rising tide of crime. These profiteers stand to lose a great deal of capital if citizens can efficiently defend themselves. To the security monopolist, each criminal who enters and exits the revolving door of justice is a renewable source of revenue providing jobs for police, social workers, victim counsellors, judges, prison employees, security guards, burglar alarm installers, locksmiths, and others employed by the security monopolies or their satellite organizations. No wonder it is so common for an honest citizen to be more ruthlessly hounded by the authorities when he shoots a criminal in self-defense than a criminal who shoots honest citizens.

    Just as a limb will weaken and atrophy if not used, so will aspects of the mind fail to develop if nothing in one’s environment exists to challenge them. People who have led excessively sheltered lives tend to have a difficult time understanding certain cause and effect relationships and an even harder time appreciating just how cruel the world can be. These dysfunction ally unworldly types are truly perplexed at the very notion of firearms ownership regarding defense. To them, tyranny and crime are things that happen in other places far removed from their “civilized” universe. Also, they do not understand the value of private property and why some people would fight for theirs since they never had to work hard to acquire what they possess. While those suffering from dysfunctional unworldliness are most often people who have been born into considerable wealth, this condition is also common in members of the clergy, academicians, practioners of the arts, and others who have spent much of their lives cloistered in a safe and pampering environment. While many of these people may be quite talented and intelligent in some ways, their extreme naivety makes them easy prey for the tyrants who use them for the financial support and favorable advertisement of their regimes. The anti-gun movement is well represented and financed by the dysfunction ally unworldly.
    The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, and it behooves all vigilant lovers of liberty to know and be able to recognize the various types of arms prohibitionists and understand their differing but equally dangerous motives. Acquiring knowledge of one’s foes is the first step toward defeating them. We must never forget that a threat to private firearms ownership is a threat to all freedoms.
    The inalienable and fundamental right to keep and bear arms which is enumerated by (but predates) the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is not about hunting, gun collecting, or target shooting. Its purpose is to ensure that every responsible American personally possesses the means to defend the Republic from all forms of tyranny, within and without. It is what permits the other nine Amendments in the Bill of Rights to be more than mere hollow phrases on a piece of paper. Its free exercise is the antithesis of serfdom and the only meaningful form of holocaust insurance known to man.
    We must never insult and degrade the spirits of our Founding Fathers by permitting the Second Amendment, the pillar of freedom, to be destroyed by the cold flame of legislative ink.

  • Frank October 19, 2018, 8:43 am

    After the election is over it will be the time for all true conservatives to entertain the Idea of a new party.

  • David. Purtell October 19, 2018, 8:42 am

    Vote. Republican if we don’t these things will get back in
    Vote republican

  • RGE October 19, 2018, 8:37 am

    No. The real threat to America is the communist sub-agenda that the Democrats have been slowly leaking out through its extremist candidates.

  • Jim October 19, 2018, 8:31 am

    Wow, a democrat with racial and sexist bias! He singles out white men as terroists. I thought the democrat party was the party of inclusiveness?! Wish i lived in Tennesee so i could vote against him. I do have a couple friends there, think I might forward this story to them.

  • John October 19, 2018, 8:20 am

    Two things. 1. Phil’s an idiot, & 2. The democratic party is the biggest terrorist group in the USA.

  • bjg October 19, 2018, 7:56 am

    The democratic party is the biggest terrorist group in America! Nothing but traitors!

  • Chuck Conrad October 19, 2018, 7:52 am

    Republicans have had the House and Senate and Nothing was done because of the Progressive leadership in the party.
    It is time to either clean house or start a new party.

  • Warsaw Wizard October 19, 2018, 7:35 am

    Phil Bredesen is a true liberal, horses butt, Democrat. There are over 50 million gun owners (male, female, white, and black) in America with many billions of rounds of ammo. If we were the terrorist organization, that Phil Bredesen accusses of being, don’t you think this country would sure know it.

    • Leighton Cavendish October 19, 2018, 1:11 pm

      50 million? I have seen other estimates of 100M…

  • gary October 19, 2018, 7:35 am

    this is one good reason to get out and vote

  • akjc77 October 19, 2018, 7:07 am

    This is all just the big push by Soros the Nazi and his Globalist cabal to make up lost ground, They are tasked with getting Agenda 2030 back on track by any means. Race division and gender divisions is the tactic at the moment. We have allowed too many people into our nation who don’t share the American dream, and worst of all we have allowed Commies to take over our educational system. The youth are being bombarded with propaganda

  • Glenn61 October 19, 2018, 6:59 am

    This is good, the filthy Democrat Left exposing it’s hate for gun owners.
    Let’s not forget that the NRA Charter was to help threatened Black families in the South to obtain a fire arm to protect themselves from the Democrat KuKluxKlan
    The lying, phony, quasi-Communist that make up the leadership of the Democrat party of today is still a threat to our Constituional Republic.

    But don’t worry about the next election. The Filthy Socialist Democrats are not getting a Blue Wave, It’s more likely going to be a BLUE FLUSH, just like the Ty-D-Bol “Man, flush the sh1t down the drain.
    These Democrat politicians are not with our country and our Laws, they need to go….!

    Thar right…!,, the same class of people that wanted to divide the country and went to war to keep Black people enslaved on their plantations in 1861, then formed the KKK, and instituted Jim Crow laws and segregation of Black people into ghettos are the same class of people that are still trying to tear apart our laws and our Constitution to divide our country today and put us all under the slavery of Central Command Socialism on their “Liberal Plantation”

    The same class of people then are the same class of people now that make up the leadership of the Democrat party here in the US that promote ignorance.
    They use Black people, they use Gay people, they use and create more poor people to be dependent upon governmental charity so they can exploit them.


  • Rick H October 19, 2018, 6:20 am

    What trough of bullshit are these people eating from? It is common sense that is supported by multiple studies and well researched statistics that states with a shall issue CCW program and reasonable gun ownership legislation have lower violent crime occurrences. Everything is better in moderation except socialism which should be declared a terrorist organization and banned from existence in the US. I don’t care what “works” in Europe etc. I think most people here are concerned with what works here. Oh yeah, almost forgot….any way we can deport Soros and his sons?

    • Pat Bryan October 19, 2018, 1:53 pm

      Sorry to weewee on your hypothesis, but the 10 most dangerous states for violent crime are:

      South Carolina

      All “shall issue” states.

  • Jay October 19, 2018, 5:17 am

    This “gun Nut” knows full well who the Nuts are and 98% of them belong to the Democrat/Socialist/Communist party trying to bring the USA into third world status! Get busy Trump, that’s why we voted for you, start throwing these anti-American fools in jail for sedition!

  • Gordon Terry October 19, 2018, 5:05 am

  • Dean October 19, 2018, 4:21 am

    All politicians tell the lies you want to hear to get into office. Prime example Obama you can keep your own health insurance then came Obamacare. That is not your own insurance proven fact politicians lie to get into office then they do whatever they want and there is nothing the public voice can do after they are elected. Every politician known tells lies just to get into office. Vote libertarian we might have a chance. But all politicians lie Republican, Democrat, and Libertarians probably due to I have not known one that has not told lies to get into office. A nation that is under Fire underlies and overpowered by lying politicians

    • Maxgun56 October 19, 2018, 8:54 am

      At this time and place Voting Libertarian is a wasted Vote.
      here in Florida we All Need to Vote for Ron DeSantis for Governor.

      A Vote for a Libertarian will cancel out a vote for DeSantis. we need this office a Andrew Gillum will turn Florida into
      another Commiforina,
      If you liked Fidel Castro you should Love Andrew Gillum. Communista, Communista, Communista.

  • Rangemaster11B October 19, 2018, 3:32 am

  • mtman2 October 19, 2018, 3:07 am

    Huh- haven’t shot anyone yet-!

    Tho we used to bring our guns to school for class show+tell as well as store them in our lockers to hunt after school (all w/ permission).
    Almost all high schools had shooting teams right into the 60’s.
    I didn’t consider shooting bullies but when cornered gav’em a “black eye education” why not to be cruel to others …
    Try cornering even a rat and they’ll defend themselves with everything they have and you may get hurt.

  • Randy Overly October 16, 2018, 2:56 pm
