I am annoyed by his choice in firearms. At the very least he has enough money for an NFA item. If a full auto AR isn't quite up to snuff, I was thinking he could avoid muzzle sweeping his wife with this sort of setup:

And who knows, maybe that would've btfo'd the protesters.


If he wanted to compliment his house, he should have gone with a 6 pounder and a double load of grapeshot.

I would like to see a brain scan of the human tripod shown there.

Good lord. War really is hell on Earth.

Also, could somebody make whiskey pour out of Ken & Karen's guns for me to add to the top of this page. It seems Doug finally succumbed to his top page habit.

I think the right is learning the opposite lesson here. How many counter protesters that open carried got assaulted? How many unarmed counter protesters (or bystanders) were assaulted just this week? It seems that being armed is the only way those on the right can assemble and protest.

I dont think it's just the right (though I'm not sure about the trump banners here. That guy is useless.)



Seriously. It’s a slippery slope when you’re faced with an angry mob.

lol guys

Quote:
The data displayed in Johnson’s screenshot showed an individual with the same name donating to ActBlue, an online fundraising tool used by left-of-center politicians and causes.

But there was a glaring problem, as The Daily Beast reporter Lachlan Markay noted: Johnson had identified the wrong guy. In fact, if Johnson had bothered to continue scrolling on the election data page​ or had taken a few additional seconds to check where the individual he singled out in his tweet registered their donation from, he would have seen that ​the​ Mark McCloskey he found was another man by the same name who lives in Michigan—not Missouri. Rather, the gun-toting McCloskey in Missouri is recorded donating $2,700 toward the Trump campaign and allied Republican causes during the 2016 election cycle.

Johnson’s tweet had been shared more than 5,000 times before it was deleted and was cited as proof by several high-profile conservative social media figures, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who quipped​, “Maximum cognitive dissonance.”

My new desktop wallpaper

I literally thought to myself "here's my cover for my 2020 mix tape" and then read your comment. A great and bizarre picture indeed.


jesus christ. That seems like a produced photo. The cast, the wardrobe...the house. Seems like something Banksy would do. And i would think jeez how lazy, so fucking on the nose.

Pink Lacoste shirt and assault rifle plus Karen with a handgun. What a year this is!


i just read that mob of peaceful protestors broke down an iron gate to enter that road despite 'private property' and 'no trespassing' signs, and when the lawyer in the pink shirt who was eating dinner saw them and told them it was 'private property' someone threatened to kill him, his dog, and burn down his house.

what an asshole for attempting to deter that with his lawfully owned firearm

and - get this

look at this crazy white power shit he had the nerve to tell the news:

Quote:
Mark McCloskey, 63, told KSDK-TV he is actually supportive of the work against police brutality. In fact, as a lawyer, he represents victims of police-sanctioned violence.

“I do civil rights cases,” he said. “Right now, I’m representing a young man who was assaulted by the police who is sitting in prison right now for being involved in a car accident after which the police came in and assaulted him. It’s on video.”

“I’m not some kind of extreme, you know, anti-Black Lives Matter guy,” McCloskey continued. “I do these cases. I have been doing them for decades. I mean, I have on the wall of my conference room — I’ve got an anti-slavery broadsheet, the abolitionist broadsheet from 1832. It’s been there as long as I’ve owned this building. I mean, I’m not the enemy of people that really care about black lives, but I’m apparently the enemy of the terrorists and the Marxists that are running this organization.”


what an asshole


The threatening to kill his dog thing... Are the protesters upset at the cop's near monopoly on the unjustified shooting of dogs? Cops have been getting away with trespassing and shooting dogs for far too long: its our turn now!

If that's the case I can't argue he had a right to respond the way he did - that's fucked and no one should be threatened like that.

I still hold that the graphic here is so jarring and something that 99% of people simply cannot relate to though. So glad that he had his assault rifle available to calm and diffuse the situation and ensure no one got hurt.


He also claimed to have black friends right?

Jesus, in what world stepping out with that gun is smart and right??

Does anyone truly believe that additional protests will serve any lasting good? Crime is rising, so it's unlikely that the police will get cut further and it's not like that was gonna help anyway (versus increased funding to supplement the force with intervention specialists). It seems like more targeted efforts (Mississippi's flag for example) will be effective going forward. Much safer for everyone involved as well.

Apparently the driver was shot once. They say multiple shots but I only hear one?

Imagine stopping for "protesters" now.
