I'm supposed to "tone down the rhetoric?"

In the wake of the shooting of members of Congress at baseball practice last week, we now hear calls from Republicans and their supporters to "tone down the rhetoric."


For years, Republican and NRA Board member Ted Nugent -- a pedophile draft dodger -- talked about shoving a machine gun up Obama's ass and pulling the trigger.  Now Nugent says maybe we need to tone down the rhetoric.
MEMO FOR NUGENT:  Suck on your machine gun . . . just like you told President Obama to do.

Democratic member of Congress Gabby Giffords was shot.  We called for everyone to tone down the rhetoric.  What did we get?  We got:
-- Silence from the GOP, from Fox, from Limbaugh -- silence from the entire rightwing noise machine.
-- Sarah Palin posted a map of the US with weapon sight crosshairs on the districts of Democratic Congressional members she wanted to defeat.

Donald Trump, Jr., recently said Democrats are not even people.
MEMO FOR DONALD JR:  Call your tailor and get yourself measured for an orange jump suit.  You'll need it after Mueller gets through with your family of criminals.

Senate Republicans are working in secret to take health insurance away from working Americans and we are supposed to tone down the rhetoric?

A deranged nutcase opens fire on a group of Republican members of Congress playing baseball.  Then, Congressional Republicans vote to allow mentally ill people to buy guns.

After eight years of listening to Republicans question President Obama's citizenship, after eight years of Republicans opposing every single Obama proposal, after years of useless "investigations" into the Clintons -- now I'm supposed to "tone down the rhetoric?"

Disillusioned, angry goobers in failing rural towns voted for a stupid, half-witted, self-centered man-child with the maturity of a sixth grader . . . and I'm supposed to "tone down the rhetoric?'

How about this for rhetoric:  
Republicans are the enemy of this nation.  
Anyone who voted for Trump is a fool.
Tone down this, you assholes:

And another conservative snowflake steps up to the microphone . . .

A conservative student filed a lawsuit to turn her failing grade into an “A” because she did not like her professor’s assigned readings.
Donna Kikkert complained that her professor assigned texts that focused on LGBT poets instead of classics such as Robert Frost and Edgar Allan Poe, and she was unable to persuade University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point faculty to let her read what she wanted, reported the (Milwaukee) Journal Sentinel.
The 59-year-old Kikkert claims that Patricia Dyjak, her professor for Advanced Creative Writing Poetry, failed her in retaliation for complaining about course work involving “lesbians, illicit sexual relationships, incest and frequent swearing.”
She also accused the professor of exposing her bare breast while showing students a tattoo on her shoulder blade area.
“She has swung the pendulum far to the side of LGBT students and, in doing so, has chosen to totally discount the importance and the validity of the mainstream student population,” Kikkert argued in her suit.
Kikkert wants a court to force Dyjak to turn the F into an A, and she also wants the professor suspended for a year without pay or fired.
The professor is being represented by the state Attorney General’s Office because the university is a function of the state.
Dyjak declined to comment, but Assistant Attorney General Katherine Spitz has requested the case be dismissed because Kikkert’s allegations don’t amount to a violation of any law.
“Kikkert’s complaint fails because it does not provide any legal authority or other basis (and the defendant’s counsel is aware of none) upon which this court could require Dyjak to teach the work of certain poets in a college course … or to provide any particular student with the grade that student believes she deserves, rather than the one she earned,” Spitz argued in a court filing.
A Portage County judge dismissed the case, but Kikkert has said she may appeal.

Three pieces of shit flushed . . .

 Three pieces of shit were flushed today in Texas -- two "bounty hunters" and the guy they were hunting.

(CNN) Three men were killed after a gunfight inside a Texas car dealership involving bounty hunters and the man they were trying to capture. 
And it all happened Tuesday inside of a showroom filled with customers and employees.
Bounty hunters Gabriel Bernal and Fidel Garcia were killed while trying to capture fugitive Ramon Michael Hutchinson at a Nissan dealership in Greenville, Texas, just outside of Dallas. Hutchinson was also killed.
The bounty hunters had been waiting for Hutchinson at the dealership for several hours.
"We didn't give them permission, but we also didn't tell them that they had to leave," dealership owner Rick Ford told CNN affiliate KTVT
"We were told they were federal agents so we didn't ask them to leave. They were dressed casual. We thought they were plainclothes officers."
Ford said the men -- who worked for a private company called US Fugitive Recovery & Extradition -- didn't show any badges or ID.
Hutchinson, of St. Paul, Minnesota, was wanted on drug and other charges. The bounty hunters had a tip that Hutchinson would be at the dealership that day because his girlfriend was trading in her vehicle.
When Hutchinson arrived at the dealership, a scuffle started as Bernal and Garcia tried to apprehend him, KTVT reports. That's when all three men pulled out guns.
"I've been told that the two gentleman approached him with handcuffs and were going to try to arrest him and that's when the shooting started," Ford said.
Cell phone video by someone inside captured the start of the gunfight. About 20 shots are fired in just seconds. Employees and customers are seen scrambling for cover as people scream.
Miraculously, no one else was hurt.
Ford said the dealership will reopen on Friday.
