I'm sorry the truth amuses you.

But you probably never grew out of bullying nerds, either.

I think you missed the point: that having a field in the database called Offensive with a value of Yes is funny.

Where do you get bullying needs from this?

Expressed their support of this vandalism or attempted to rationalize it.

That the major difference here Adam.

The big difference is that it is illegal conduct, post political signs/ads on state owned property. The road is maintained/owned by DCR making it state land. BLM is not a political campaign but rather a political cause.

If you owned an empty plot of land, and your neighbor owned an identical plot of land next to it, your neighbor secured all of the permits to build a house on his and you did not but built an identical house on yours anyways, guess who gets to keep their house and who doesn't? It has nothing to do with fairness.

and the latter pays a 'fine' and happened to get it all done a lot cheaper. Clearly you are not familiar with how development works in this town.

As far as I know BLM does not say Biden 2020.

...that a Trump supporter apparently believes support for Trump to be in opposition to Black lives mattering.

Wrong answer.

We appear to agree that "the police shouldn't murder unarmed Black people" is an anti-Trump position. The difference is that I think that's an argument against Trump, and you think it's an argument that Black lives don't matter.

Shouldn't we be more concerned with who authorized overtime to remove this when there are so many other priorities. This could have been done on a regular shift. Seems the Democrats are scared in their strong hold. I don't support it or BLM painting if that helps.

The Democrat convention provided a big boost...to President Trump! No surprise that some people might get a little carried away with enthusiasm.

My thought along those lines, Yellow Paint + Roller ="Dump Trump 2020" Problem solved!

What compels a person to support a man who sides with extremists? A man who gives carte blanche to the enemy to kill American soldiers for bounty payments? A man who is incapable of seeing the difference between good and evil?

There will always be folks, who by non-stop traumas, a bad combination of nature and nurture perhaps, who can not see evil, but are deceived by evil into thinking it is good.

Larouche people have always been pretty much on the fringe. Trump people are pretty much mainstream.
Larouche never got even close to being nominated for president, and he didn’t get the support of the ultra rich. Evil for sure.

Not any more.

I hate to burst your bubble, but even if Trump loses on November 3 (not a given) and retreats to Mar-A-Lago and never shows his face again (we should be so lucky), there will still be plenty of "Trump people" to take the lessons they've learned from him and apply them with a little more subtlety (which shouldn't be difficult).

It's a pretty safe bet that once he's out of office, the mainstream corporate media will treat Trump as an aberration and give a mulligan to the rest of the GOP, which means it's entirely likely that we're going to be seeing white nationalist/authoritarian "Trump people" in the mainstream for a while to come.

I could be wrong about this, but I think the point of the previous comment was that Trump was drawing support from the mainstream, i.e., people who aren't completely crazy. While he has in the past drawn support from people who selectively blinded themselves to the obvious implications, I think that's increasingly not true. His current adherents are unapologetic white supremacists, dominionist Christians, and authoritarians. And yes, a lot of people learned how well the dogs will jump when you blow certain whistles - but they were able to function because of the corruption of institutions (perhaps most notably the police) and because of legal ambiguities and loopholes. The ousting of Trump will provide, at a minimum, the opportunity to change that. So yes, if we sit here on our dumb asses moaning about it and don't actually do anything with that opportunity, I'm sure there are enough toxic, unscrupulous barbarians to try it again. But I disagree that it's a given.

this is in essence the goal of the lincoln project. by making trump seem extreme—which, to be clear, by the standards of the modern GOP he isn’t—they aim to shift the overton window to the right, so that jackasses with half baked ideas like tom cotton seem reasonable.

This is what happens when vandalism goes unchecked and the citizenry gives tacit approval. We have no one to blame but ourselves.
