    Why are you threatening me with violence? All I said was I don't want to give money to people who hate me. Isn't that my right as a free man?

    I thought libs didn’t like what McCarthy did. In looking back, maybe he wasn’t so bad.

    Let’s start blacklisting liberal businesses. Oh, I forgot ... libs don’t participate in the private sector. They live in their parents’ basement and work at Starbucks. They don’t own any business.

    .

    Otherwise the software erases it and it has much less impact. It was the accepted profanity in the 1600's when "taking the Lord's name in vain" could actually net you a fine.

    Stop projecting. You know you're backing a dotard and it's becoming more and more obvious to everyone each day who is actually going off the deep end.
    I could draw you a picture with a sharpie if it helps.

    I own two Starbucks, we actually have procedures for dealing with conservatives who blacklist and picket us nearly constantly.

    Yeah? And, So What?

    1) "Boycotts" per se aren't always successful.

    2) If any of these "business owners" are worried about losing business all that they have to do is Repudiate Trump.

    ^Problem Solved.

    In other words:

    IF they don't want to lose business...
    THEN they should Stop Supporting Trump...

    ^That should be an easy one to figure out.

    Q1 - Is it "thuggery"? NO.

    Q2 - Will this spread? We Can Only Hope.
    (Hopefully it moves from PA to MI and WI) :salute:

    I have never seen conservatives picket anyone. That’s hilarious.

    But I sincerely hope they don’t interfere with your business. I hate picketers.

    I hate that.

    If you don’t like a business, don’t buy their product. But don’t interfere with the business.

    Many on the left do not support transgenders competing in athletics with the gender they are transitioning to. It’s not even the majority.

    Have another one or do you care to go back on topic?

    People have a right to protest and to organize boycotts.

    This is just another example of the leftist McCarthy'st fascists at work. Don't agree with us politically and you'll never work in Hollywood or our towns again.

    Next they'll make cool armbands to wear when enforcing the rules.

    Then they can force Trump supporters to sew a gold "T" into their clothes so everyone knows who they are.

    Two thoughts on this:

    1. It won't work and will backfire as these sorts of idiocies virtually always do.

    2. This on the other hand will make for a very nice negative campaign ad to be run in Pittsburgh OHIO, "support for democratic candidates amounts to validation of these thuggish methods and modern day Mccarthyism".

    Ohio is still a swing state. Isn't it?

    So instead of answering for the outrageous actions and even crimes by liberals you want to talk about trump instead?

    EXCEPT--

    Anyone that is capable of falling for that sort or RW BS is ALREADY Voting For Trump.

    A "Negative Ad" like that won't influence one vote.

    Except for the independents, the undecided voters, moderate Democrats who don't buy the crap from both sides and who decide elections.

    Will they break for the left's Green new deal, Thuggish new Mccarthyism, open borders, tax hikes.... or 4 more years of peace and prosperity?

    Um right... I really don't give a **** about "many on the left", I care about those on the left with enough political power to:
    1. Ensure that men can compete in women with sports
    2. Can get people fired for calling a man a man.
    3. Can get people scrubbed from social media for calling a man a man
    4. Can get people arrested and imprisoned for calling a man a man on social media

    You cannot deny that powerful leftists have done some or all of the above in countries across the West. The fact that there is a SEVERE negative consequence for stating scientific truth is insanity. The powerful left is therefor enforcing insanity at the point of a government/societal gun.

    Let's talk on Nov. 4. 2020.

    After 2016, speculation on how "will they break" is useless. :salute:
