The RW war on us thread

Apt to be less amusing than the SJW thread, but might as well.

For data points on that side that don't quite rate a separate thread.

If Wildcat were Texan...

And given that Treason is punishable by death, you once again have hordes of people clamoring for a pretext for offing people just because the don’t like the others’ politics

Which is pretty much why the Founders explicitly defined "treason" in the constitution.

To prevent just that sort of thing, which had been popular in England.

Of course there's still "sedition" "hate speech" etc.

I suspect the readers and contributors of that board are very selective in their reading of the constitution and don't give a crap. Clamoring for people to get the death penalty for reading the "wrong" newspaper does not scream "WE CARE ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION AND RULE OF LAW!" to me.

Just as an aside, that's not actual law.

C'mon folks.

We got some catching up to do on the SJW thread.

Trump Divides Americans and Un-Americans
Front Page Magazine
...

President Trump’s speech wasn’t divisive. But it did divide. It divided those in the House Chamber who love this country from those who don’t. It divided those who honor our troops, our anthem and our flag from those who take a knee. It divided those who want to make America great again from the left.

The State of the Union vision exposed the divisions between America and un-America.

Ugh. That whole piece was crap, but this line made me want to vomit
And President Trump’s State of the Union speech wasn’t just the greatest political address of his career. It’s the greatest American speech of the century

... the greatest American speech of the century ...
It was a shitty speech, but if the cutoff date is "the century" (not before 2001) rather than the past 100 years, that is at least arguably the case.

But I won't push it.

That's a funny and good point. Sets the bar much lower.

RW for Right Wing?

Maybe RR for "Religious Reich".

The only people really trying to take my freedoms away of the current crop of righties are them .

I usually find out what they are up to at rightwingwatch. The war of christmas , etc, etc. We cover them a lot already.

All for a thread in general on it though for symmetry.
