IMO the BLM movement

By not publicly condemning vigilante violence or the chants of wanting police dead, the general public perception is that BLM is condoning this behavior.

This is the standard some apply to Trump and the "demented"; why would it not apply to BLM?





I believe it's called the proverbial double standard.

Recent posts on the BLM movement have been moved to BLM MOVEMENT -- WHAT IS THEIR POSITION ON VIOLENCE AGAINST POLICE?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Trump just tweeted:

Quote:

I hope @TGowdySC does better for Rubio than he did at the #Benghazi hearings, which were a total disaster for Republicans & America!



This is why I have a love/hate relationship with Trump. While I find him to be misogynistic, facist, and racist. He does admit certain truths that most Republicans like to ignore.

The Benghazi hearings were an absolute disaster for Republicans. They took Hillary's biggest weakness and gave her a platform to look Presidential for 11 hours. But you won't find many Republicans anywhere who will admit this. Except Trump.

Speaking of Donald, if Trump loses to Clinton, will the Republican party blame the salesman ( McCain, Romney, Trump ) and not the
product ? Just wondering.

Except that you actually believe in what you are saying, which I understand...I don't know if Trump really believes in anything except how to say things to gain more publicity.

You and I disagree on how she looked, I've never seen her look very "Presidential" any more than I have seen Donald Trump as "Presidential"--but at least I know you are committed to your view of the issue. Trump? No, he just wants publicity at the expense of whoever is available.

You know I think lots of things are wrong on "my side" but Donald Trump has no interest in fixing them, just in trying to exploit them without ever saying how he will fix the issues. Gowdy said something about Trump; Trump does not know enough to know every statement need not be answered...

Trump could be Hillary's biggest campaign weapon--he "carpet bombs" his own party; she will only have to worry about him should he bash everyone's head in and become the nominee. If he gets the most votes and delegates (no the super delegate stuff) he should be the nominee, of course...I just don't see that ending well...

Isn't that the way it works? The parties are fine; they just picked Gore-Kerry-McCain-Romney-____________.

Or some dang hanging chads chained the world...

Never the party...either way!

There would be plenty of blame to go around. Trump would obviously be blamed by the establishment, who already hate/fear him.

But the party would also be to blame. Remember that post-2012 "autopsy" they drafted? It has been almost completely ignored, and the party has already made many of the same mistakes to a more extreme degree this cycle.

Have to love Trump bringing up Bill's issues. It can only help as it is a good counter to the "War on Women" liberals keep wanting to push. And those who don't like it probably would not be voting for Trump anyways.

Of course you do have the soccer moms who Rush always said wanted to sleep with Bill, but that is another topic for another time.

We shall see.

I don't see it working well for the Republicans with anyone other than the base.

And Trump certainly isn't the guy to deliver that message. His record with women isn't so great. How many wifes has he had?

And there is plenty of video of Trump singing Bill Clinton's praises throughout the years. Just makes him look like an even bigger flip flopper.
