Democrat presidential debates
« on: September 12, 2019, 09:21:43 PM »

I've watched about as much as I can stand tonight; surprised I made it more than an hour.  The most amazing thing is that Joe Biden is the only one that seems sane.  (well, Klobuchar is probably sane, she just has no charisma)

"We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."
                            - Joe Biden

"But even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did."
                            - also Joe Biden

Its on in the other room. I watched about as much as I could and left. The funny thing is that the Democrats seem to be making Trump's point on China for him right now, and they don't seem to realize it.  :rofl:

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. - William Pitt the Younger

Son is taking Poli Sci in school, has to watch as a class assignment.  Amazed (not really) by how many times they don't actually answer the question asked.  What's his name, the mayor from South Band, seems to have moments of sanity.

Others seem just around the bend...on the left hand side. 

Some funny moments.  Catro accusing Biden of being senile.  Yang saying "I'm Asian, so I know a lot of doctors"  Warren's eyes spinning in opposite directions...   :lol:

State of the dumpster fire address.  How bad is it? Joe sounds sane and two that aren't in the debates, Williamson and Gabbard, make sense sometimes. When Marianne Williamson seems more sane than you, Houston you have an electability problem.

I can’t watch the “debates”...I’m afraid of stroking out from the stupidity of the communists climbing over each other in the rush to be the dumbest at the top.

I didn't watch it, but am reading highlights this morning. Richard O'Rourke ended up making both a huge campaign contribution to Trump, and also exemplifying that one Larry Correia blog post with, “Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15, AK-47.”

For the first, it's the kind of statement even "middle of the road" people don't like to see because of the threat it implies, even beyond guns. For the second, who's "we" jackass? The people you order to do it might not do what you think.

How about Cory Booker talking about how the majority of gun owners want mandatory background checks and federal licensing of gun owners?

All of them kept saying the majority of gun owners want stringer background checks, assault weapons bans, etc.  Hell, I think it was Beto who said he went to a gun show and people buying ARs said that they would be happy with a ban, cut them into pieces...

Anyone ever see a remotely credible poll that shows a majority of gun owners want licensing of owners?
No, I'm not mtnbkr.  ;)

I heard a clip this morning of Beto saying people should keep their AR-15's when he ran for Senate.  I thought he said he owned one.  This clip is from his Senate run when he was trying to be nice to gun owners.  Now he is trying to pander to the Democrat leftist base.  Just listen to the first 30 seconds.  The rest of it is the usual political speak.

No.  However, do you expect anyone in the media to ask that question or point that out? 


Kind of makes you think about all the other stuff they are saying.

I did not watch the debates last night, but from the summaries I am reading, Ms. Warren apparently had the best performance.

So if I see someone with one of these shirts out in public, can I spit on them, or throw milkshakes on them, or hit them, like people do with red caps? Because doesn't this mean they're a nazi and they deserve it?

In any other company Biden would seem unabashedly leftist, but on THAT stage, he seemed almost moderate - he seemed to be the only serious contender who wasn't a dyed-in-the-wool communist. He also seemed to be the only one for whom fiscal responsibility was even a consideration. (One of the others - I'm not sure which - made some sort of a comment to the effect that we shouldn't worry about money.  :facepalm:  )

Cory Booker mentioned growing up in a neighborhood full of gunfire and gun violence. Q: Hey Cory, are you saying that gangs of white supremacists were running amok in the hood?

Beto of course said that they WOULD be coming for AR15s. Q: Hey Beto, what's NEXT on your list?

Beto also supported reparations for slavery, since our country began in the 1600s (NOT 1776) with the import of slaves. Great applause line since this debate was at a HBCU campus.

One moderator asked Biden a "gotcha" question about a statement he allegedly made in reference to reparations for slavery back in the 1970s - something about "he'd be damned if he'd be responsible for what happened 300 years earlier."

I think it was Warren who alluded to taking multiple steps until gun violence was gone. Q: Hey, Liz, WHAT are the next steps, and what's your timeline?

The fair and impartial (   :rofl:  ) moderator from Univision did his best to advocate for illegal aliens with his questions.

And of course, several times Trump was explicitly blamed for recent mass shootings.  :facepalm:

In the analysis afterwards, a guy with a cowboy hat - I think he was Bernie's Texas campaign manager - showed how well thought out Bernie's gun control plans were by making reference to his hunting with nonexistent cartridges and saying nobody needs an AR-47 to hunt. (That's right, AR, not AK.)

A GOP spokeswoman mentioned that Beto and other democrats were not going to win many Texas votes by promising to go door to door to confiscate the most popular rifles in America.

All in all, it came off like a three-hour infomercial - for Trump.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

I'm kinda glad they're coming out in the open instead of the usual, "We just want this one thing. Can't you give us this one thing?"

Now they're all openly saying, "This is only the first step." I heard the guy who started the CEO letter interviewed on Fox Business this morning. He also said that, "this is only the first step" and that they plan on pushing much more down the pike because, "surveys say our customers want this 5 to 1", and, "We're listening to our customers and employees."

I tried to watch it but gave up after half an hour or so. What a shitshow. A debate panel so extremist that Biden comes across as downright presidential in comparison? Just, wow...

"Because Beto proposed confiscation of AR-15s, voluntary buybacks are now a 'moderate position.'"

Uh-huh.

So forcing Jews to live in ghettos is a "moderate position" compared to the Final Solution.

Well there you go, IMO the Government should supply everyone with new full auto suppressed M-16's, so by their logic, allowing anyone to buy them without NFA paperwork is a moderate position.
