    As more information come out about the the congressional shooter, it was very apparent that he was probably self radicalized by democrats, the left wing media, and some of the internet sites he was on.

    Therefore---------------Im beginning to think that at least 4 or 5 of the most radical vile members on this forum should not be brought to the attention of the FBI. It would include several men, and at least one woman. Their hatred for Trump and republicans would seem to be at the same level of the congressional killer.

    Comments????

    Hopefully, the FBI is monitoring some of the social media sites that people use. But perhaps part of the problem is people like Madonna saying she wants to blow up the White House. The rhetoric on the left has gotten completely out of hand, and if it's not dialed back, I fear we'll see more of the incidents.

    I do hope the FBI does monitor all of these political forums, and become more pro active in addressing the people that are the vile and hate filled. If they had been more pro active maybe the congressional shooting would not have happened.

    Does that mean you HATE the content of this post, and call it flame bait? Its time the left back WAY off on the hatred of Trump and the republicans, since they drive the weak minded to do what the congressional shooter did.

    In all seriousness, here is what I think:

    When I first started posting on this board a poster called me out (via PM) - or so I thought. So, I referred him to court cases and so forth as proof that I was right. He then looked up the cases, came back here and was banned for posting my personal information. But, before this guy posted my personal info, our cat was hung across a tree limb in the back yard by the neck. Somebody fired a round through the kitchen window while I was at home (that one brought a whole slew of cops to my door.) My computer was hacked numerous times to the point that I would have the computer I was working on, a secondary computer next to my desk and another in the shop.

    I know that terrorists are bred and empowered by social media - and these discussion boards are full of them. It is easy to spot these people so when they begin trolling me, they are invited to make their comments via PM. If it's done that way and someone wants to jerk your chain in person, you can give them the opportunity. It's better than being a target.

    Unfortunately, these boards (the bulk of them at least) are owned by people with their own political agenda, so if you're on the wrong side of the terrorist's agenda, the trolls are given carte blanche to use the board as a means to intimidate you. It does no good to report them. Some go hundreds - sometimes thousands of posts doing nothing that benefits any thread. If you respond in the same tone and spirit in responding, you will be reprimanded. As a matter of fact there is a moderator that reprimands me every time I report trolls! Then the moderators complain if I don't report the trolling. It's a means of allowing terrorists to spew their swill and you cannot challenge it.

    With my level of experience with trolls that are capable of committing acts of violence and / or cyber terror, I know who they are. And, if they have any courage, I give them the opportunity to meet me face to face rather than to chance having them try doing it anonymously. These boards could help minimize the problem by banning those people who only post to disrupt threads, troll posters they don't like, and engage in board intimidation. If people cannot be entertaining, educational, informative and / or put forth their own opinions, they are probably of the mindset of our latest rampage shooter. No board should give those people a platform - even if they agree with them politically.

    where was the call when palin posted about having people in the cross hairs , then Gifford was shot, or trump talking about second amendment solutions

    For 8 years the hate and racism were ratcheted up and contributed to the foul discourse in America

    now the chickens are coming home to roost maybe

    remember everyone, if you dont adore Obama, its because you are a racist.

    Palin having crosshairs and targeting congressional districts? really? thats all you have?

    Can you point to the article that shows how Gifford was shot for political reasons?

    Poor choice of wording, but I believe he was speaking about the 2nd amendment and said something along the lines of second amendment people know how to handle that.


    If this is the best you have to prove how this guy was justified in his hate, you probably should be reported as a threat.

    Man - right wing snowflakes melt just as fast as the left wing ones.

    Crying because some people say mean words on an internet forum about Trump? Come on now.

    Reporting people for the use of free speech because you think their words are mean enough to constitute a threat? LOL.

    Toughen up right wing snowflakes. Or shall we start trotting out all the folks on the right side of the spectrum that snapped and killed some people...analyze their speech prior to that and round up anyone who comes close to sounding like they did? I imagine several of the above posters might find themselves under investigation if we did that.

    There is a difference between "mean" words and holding up what is supposed to be the severed head of the president. Or bastardizing a play so the sitting president is murdered, or calling for the bombing of the white house. How about calling for the bombing of Trump tower?????????

    Was it the severed head of the president? A play is fiction...who cares what happens in it? Calling for the bombing of something is a lot different than threatening to bomb a place.

    I have heard MANY a person call for turning the Middle East into "glass". "Bomb them all" is often said. Is it somehow different though because the President of the United States is involved?

    Words don't hurt, snowflakes. Grow a pair and deal with it.

    FWIW:

    "Loughner was a registered Independent, but, unlike James T. Hodgkinson, he didn’t leave behind an obvious political motive. His ideologies are fairly complicated, but, as CBS News noted in 2011, a former friend “wrote he (Loughner) had once been ‘very liberal’ and added, ‘he was leftwing when I knew him in hs & college, 3 years ago."

    If I see something, I'll ****ing say something. I don't care if people call it profiling or non-PC. The PC idiots are the ones that won't call police when they should. If someone is doing something or acting very suspicious, I'm going to call it out.

    I'll notify the FBI that you're on this site and seem unstable. There. My good deed for the day is done.

    Go right ahead. They will find nothing. If the FBI checked out my posts, there has never been ANY hint of violence towards ANY president. OTOH the constant vile posts against the president by the people I mentioned might interest them a great deal.
