DeSantis for President. Trump for Governor of Florida.

Four minutes of DeSantis on the ProgMedia Charlie Foxtrot of today. Trenchant,  extemporaneous, and with a very high signal-to-noise ratio.

{HT: The New Neo}

Interesting background for DeSantis:Ron DeSantis ” Wikipedia :

Desantis’s mother was a nurse and his father installed Nielsen TV rating boxes. His family moved to Orlando, Florida, before relocating to Dunedin, Florida, when he was six years old. His sister Christina Marie DeSantis was born on May 5, 1985, in Orlando and died in 2015. He was a member of the Little League team from Dunedin National that made it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

After graduating from Dunedin High School in 1997, DeSantis attended Yale University. He was captain of Yale’s varsity baseball team and joined the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. DeSantis was an outfielder on the Yale baseball team; as a senior in 2001, he had the team’s best batting average at .336.

After graduating from Yale in 2001 with a B.A. magna cum laude in history, DeSantis spent a year as a history teacher at the Darlington School. He then attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 2005 with a Juris Doctor cum laude.

Military service
DeSantis received his Reserve Naval officer’s commission and assignment to the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) in 2004 at the U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Dallas, Texas, while still a student at Harvard Law School. He completed Naval Justice School in 2005. Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as a prosecutor. He was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant in 2006. He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility.

In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah.

DeSantis returned to the U.S. in April 2008, at which time he was reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service. The U.S. Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an assistant U.S. attorney at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle District of Florida. DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense counsel until his honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010. He concurrently accepted a reserve commission as a lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the US Navy Reserve. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal.

    Sure… if common sense should take hold of the populace then DeSantis could be the next President. The Donald, however, has truly blown his credibility, I think forever. There’s never been a Trump fan like Vox Day who crowned him the “God Emperor” since day one. Read what Vox is saying now…

    • Mike Austin January 6, 2022, 4:57 PM

      I know…I know. Begins at 17:00:


      Most of those Trump put into the White House stabbed him in the back. He had no ability to discern friend from foe. That is not the mark of a man, but a fool. Unless all is part of a script. His “vaccine” gibberish is unexplainable.

      • Tom Hyland January 6, 2022, 5:34 PM

        Trump’s entire existence has been “pay back” to the Rothschild bank that bailed him out of his bankrupt hotels and casinos. They let him be President but he was going to have to obey. Originally Trump was vehemently opposed to vaccines saying they cause autism and injury to children. Then they told him he WILL become vaccine salesman to the world. Wow. All through the autumn Trump campaigned for politicians that actually voted for his impeachment.

        This year is going to be orchestrated mayhem if the predictions of this article ring true. https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-01-06-operation-chaos-democrats-flood-americas-streets-with-violent-criminals.html#

          Two years ago I would have laughed at the conspiracy nonsense in that article. Now it makes perfect sense. I see it with my own eyes. What was insane yesterday is normal today. I wonder what is on the agenda for this year and the next?

      • ghostsniper January 6, 2022, 6:29 PM

        Unexplainable IS the explanation.
        Neither will get a vote from me.

              So is voting, if you care what happens to your country.

              How many Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi types will be elected before nonvoters get a clue? Old saying– “If you don’t vote, you forfeit the right to complain.”

                I don’t have a country, nor do you.
                I just happen to be trapped in one that has turned mostly communist.

                • RedBeard January 8, 2022, 9:06 AM

                  What a completely nonsensical statement. Of course I have a country. It’s the best and most beautiful country on the planet, but it’s political system is currently damaged– something that can be fixed.

                  You say you don’t have a country, then contradict yourself by saying “you’re trapped in one.”

                  Maybe you don’t realize how much anger and confusion your posts display?

          • Tom Hyland January 7, 2022, 1:37 PM

            Zzzzzzzz….. that is the snoringly loud and most boring thing I’ve read here in ages. Mark Twain said long long ago “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” You haven’t been paying attention, RedBeard, to the unbelievable outcome of voting. If the 2020 election hasn’t proven to you voting doesn’t matter then nothing will. I didn’t endorse the present jail warden nor am I approving the next.

      I agree, Trump may have been blindsided by Covid and manipulated by the Gates / Fauci crime syndicate, but his ego won’t allow him to admit the vaccines were a disaster. I can see if he gets the nomination, about two weeks before election day, the left will throw old Fauci under the bus and make Trump the fall guy for the lethal vaccines.

    • Jack January 7, 2022, 6:17 AM

      The men behind the curtain run this shitshow, politicians are the face and speakers for these demonic thugs. The Apostle Paul said we battle against spiritual principalities, powers and wickedness in high places and I don’t doubt that but it is also a hard fact that every last one of those ‘things’ is human, born in a bed and a voluntary, willing and obedient soldier.

      • Mike Austin January 7, 2022, 7:07 AM

        True that. Take a close look at Pelosi—not for very long of course—and you will see the demonic in her eyes and through her eyes. Most of the ruling “elite” are likewise.

    Never been one to allow others to make up my mind.

    While I’m a Trump supporter, I think it more responsible to say I’m “ An AMERICA FIRST supporter”. The presidency of these United States has turned into a popularity contest. The King Makers, the money men,,,, really more or less Appoint A president.

    If the communist didn’t fear Trump, do you think we would here is name every ten minutes. Communist are scared to death of him, his policies


    DC is pure and simple evil to its core. How We The People ever allowed these shitbags to do this to our nation is a fuckimg tragedy.

    • james wilson January 7, 2022, 12:32 PM

      No, the America Lasters don’t fear Trump. They were terrified when he won but learned soon enough they could control the man. What terrifies the enemy is the normal people who supported Trump because they oppose subversion. Lefty’s nightmare is that Normie will disover what Lefty is actually up to, plus a lot of projection.

  • Gnawbone Jack January 7, 2022, 1:31 AM

    That’s a big 10-4 on America First. I am hard-wired to vote in any and all elections; it’s something I’ve carried forward from my civics class in school. If I am unable to vote for someone, I cast my vote against evil in all its forms, no matter the party.

    • bob klemfdorfer January 7, 2022, 5:58 AM

      how’s that working out for ya?

      • Dirk January 7, 2022, 9:03 AM

        You all not voting is a vote for the bad guy. Like Jack I’m hard wired to vote. Unlike apparently many others here, I’m pro American to the bone.

        Bob,vote don’t vote, I don’t care. I spent roughy 40 years MIL and LEO daily protecting your right to CHOICE.

        Yes the decks stacked, yet it’s literally the only tool available, to true the vote. These United States didn’t get in this sad sad position by itself. Na it took all of us to assume politicians had our best interest at heart. Took me until 38/42 to figure out the fucking racket.

        I just was just forced to listen to Junk Yard Joe. What a fucking looser. If you don’t know, the truth test for him is this. If his lips are moving he’s lying. It’s that simple.

        As noted in ooooo ten million posts,,, we’re not going to vote our way out of this shit show. Pretty sure Americans will not stand up and take our country back.

        Bob this is an overview, not directed directly at you. I’ve read your posts here, recognize your-squared away.


        • ghostsniper January 7, 2022, 10:37 AM

          Dirk sed: “You all not voting is a vote for the bad guy.”
          And you know it.
          But you say such a thing to justify your intellectually dishonest notion to enslave others to what you some how believe to be right. A moral man would never choose to harm others when he can choose otherwise.

          • RedBeard January 7, 2022, 12:43 PM

            Dirk is correct.

              Dood, for your sake, STFU already.
              Are you in 5th grade or what?
              YOU vote, so YOU are responsible for the tyranny and crimes they do.
              You’re actually WORSE than the politicians you vote for, for you grovel at their feet.
              That stupid quote applies to you.

              • RedBeard January 8, 2022, 8:53 AM

                Why do liberals like yourself want to silence and censor people who have opposing views?
                Why do you immediately jump to insults when you are proven wrong? By the way, that is what a “5th grader” would do.
                Why do you project your failures onto others?
                Why did you feel the need for two additional insults?
                Why do you contradict yourself often, then get extremely angry when called on it?
                Why do you constantly tell others “you know it’s true” or “you know it” when that assumption obviously cannot be even remotely substantiated– unless you somehow miraculously possess psychic abilities?
                And why can’t you control your temper while engaging in a simple conversation?

                All considered, it’s probably a blessing that you don’t vote, as you seem to let emotions control your actions, rather than using reason.

                • ghostsniper January 8, 2022, 11:45 AM

                  You don’t have an opposing view.
                  You have a little gurlz view.
                  Now go change your heavily soiled panties, child.

                  Yes, if you act like a child you’ll be treated like one.

  • Kevin in PA January 7, 2022, 2:47 AM

    For me, Trump has lost much of his legitimacy going forward, but the MAGA populist movement is still valid and if people would quit whining and get busy and join the fight, we could take “100 seats for 100 years” in the House of Representatives, as forecast by Steven K. Bannon.
    I went to a local meeting last night and was pleased to learn that there are growing numbers of people here, locally in PA, that are working on a wide range of fronts. The resistance is strong, but you wouldn’t know it if you don’t get out and meet people. The left has control of the narrative. They control the major news media, the tech social media, the major institutions like the academy, etc. but the narrative is crumbling in front of everyone’s eyes. Even people that took the first shot are now wondering WTF!?

    From my view, the majority of people across the country are going against this regime and this is why the left are losing their shit. They can not win on ideas. Their ideas are proven failures. They can not win on their lies, because the truth is coming forward, despite the suppression of information. They can not govern, as evidenced by what is happening with supply chain. Hell, these morons can not even clear a few inches of snow from the major highways going into the nation’s capitol!
    The left are reckless, incompetent and corrupt. The hubris with which they conduct themselves is going to be their undoing.
    Stop hiding while you wait for the apocalypse.
    Find like minded people – there are plenty of them out there in real America.
    Organize. Speak the truth. Do not turn a blind eye to this evil.

    • theduchessofkitty January 7, 2022, 5:42 PM

      Now, how are y’all going to overcome Cheatadelphia’s advantage?

  • ghostsniper January 7, 2022, 4:10 AM

    What are you going to do when they steal the next election too?
    Gonna storm the capital again?
    What if your guy wins but he turns out to be the same as the other guy, you know, the one you voted against?

    At the end of the day, no matter whom is elected, does your income increase? Does the amount stolen from you decrease? Do the rules you must follow increase or decrease? Does anything get better at all because of politics?

    You’re playing kindergarten “Checkers” and they are playing MMM “Punch Your Ass In The Face”, and just keep wondering why you keep ending up with the shitty end of the stick. Never getting a clue.

    Or is all of it just a big effeminate “feel good” shit show, like a superbowl with red neckties?

      • RedBeard January 7, 2022, 9:10 AM

        Bob, thank you for posting here.
        You’ve provided us with a great reminder that Biden worshipers like yourself are entirely controlled by fear and hatred, and possess much lower intelligence than Conservatives.

        And as for the turncoats and Trump haters, it appears that you willfully forget the fact that Trump gave America the greatest economy in 50 years, gave us energy independence, made foreign enemies fear us again, and brought us the highest employment— especially to minorities in a very long time.
        So maybe he said one or two things that you disagree with or hurt your feelings, and now you abandon the one man who brought more positive change, and who terrifies the evil democrats more than any man since Ronald Reagan?

        That sounds like the story of the man who divorced his wife of 30 years because she burned his toast one morning.

        • Mike Austin January 7, 2022, 9:40 AM

          The best endorsement I can give Trump—in spite of his faults real or imagined—is that if he runs in 2024, he will have my vote. Many believe that “there is no voting our way out of this”, and they are correct if voting were the only tool available. In fact, voting is just one option. If the elections of 2022 and 2024 are again rigged, then more and more eyes will be opened to how the US really works. The “elites” would lose even more credibility—if that is even possible. So vote but don’t leave it at that.

          Remember that the enemy does not want you to vote. So why do what he wants? Rather, he desires that you surrender from exhaustion, from exasperation, from the believed futility of the thing. Vote if for no other reason than to anger him. It will feel good at least.

          • ghostsniper January 7, 2022, 10:44 AM

            Mike sed: “Remember that the enemy does not want you to vote.”
            The last election and probably all future ones proved that the communists don’t care if you vote or not. Makes no diff. But, if “It will feel good at least.”, knock yourself.

            Long realizing that the criminal ways of the political past have never worked right and increasingly so of late, some of us have been working on a brand new world.

            • Mike Austin January 7, 2022, 11:32 AM

              Not voting also makes one feel good—if that man be a cynic. Not voting does absolutely nothing for our side, but does give the enemy information about us: that we are discouraged, that we feel helpless, and so on. Voting takes just a few minutes. It does no harm to our side, but can bring immense benefits. So vote, not to “feel good” but with an understanding that voting by itself is a waste of time.

              • bob klemfdorfer January 7, 2022, 11:40 AM

                Oh second thought you actually are right and I withdraw all the bad things I have ever said.

  • Kevin in PA January 7, 2022, 5:03 AM

    ….and your plan is to hide? To single-handedly start the revolution and begin to slaughter all with whom you disagree?….and who do you shoot first?

    You run your mouth plenty, but what, exactly are you doing to fix the problem, or educate others, or fight?….or is it that you just want to sit by and watch everything go to shit, thinking you will be the lone survivor?

    Voting is not the only way to resist. How about building parallel societies, structures and systems? It starts by working with others, communicating and educating and building resistance.
    Good luck with you no plan – plan.

      • John Venlet January 7, 2022, 7:19 AM

        Bob Klemfdorfer may snark in comments, but he and Ghostsniper are correct. You will not vote your way out of this! It may be difficult to accept, but it is a fact. So, what can one do? Comply as little, or as much, as you are comfortable with. At some point, the powers that be are going to cross the line, and things will then get sporty. I’m not gonna hide when that happens, though it may mean my life. I don’t want things to get sporty, but I get a vote if they do.

        • Mike Austin January 7, 2022, 7:37 AM

        Why not post links to which pages here contain your “plans?”
        Then you could follow that up with a post of which plans you have implemented, and how successful they’ve been.
        I’m certain that many here would like to see those plans and accomplishments. I know I would.

        At the very least, it would be a refreshing change over insulting others and referring to them as “5th graders” or “schoolgurls.”

    DJT didfar more good than any harm; did far more for our country than any CINC in my lifetime.

Every day that’s not yet required is a gift.
    So yeah, I’ll use the ballot box until I have to use the other one. IF there’s an election in 24 I’ll gladly vote for either of the Floridians.
    I love that DJT continues to be the monster under the bed for the commie assholes destroying our country.

    • ghostsniper January 7, 2022, 8:17 AM

      The commie assholes destroying this country are the retards that keep hiring the criminals to do the heavy lifting, right out of their ass pockets and straight to the gulag. You people will drop like a used rubber when thing get rough and it looks like that time is fast approaching. Again, what are you gonna do when they steal the next election? nothing but silence, because you can see no further than that voting handle glued over with hanging chads.

    I’ll wager most of us here have been voting,with pride,at every election season. Our reward (at least here in AZ) was a small round red white & blue sticker that said “I Voted”. I doubt any of us expected much even from those rock-solid ConservativeRepubs we voted in,but their complete and utter betrayal of every damn one of us these past few years is truly enlightening.
    They’re still doing it.(See Cruz,Ted.)
    Even if the next electoral merry-go-round lands us The House,Senate,and White House,so what?
    Trump had it all for awhile and they kneecapped him at every opportunity.
    What about that enormous army of Lois Lerner’s in every single 3-letter fed.gov entity? You know,the ones whose only skill is making normal people miserable? We don’t get to vote for those crapweasels,and once they’re in,they’re barnacled in for LIFE,til they retire with the pension we pay for. Like the Judiciary.
    Trump’s greatest achievement is that the entire commie clown circus hates him,but more importantly,US,so much,they’ve lost all perspective;they have gleefully revealed their true objectives. They’re desperately trying to maintain the charade,and failing.
    Let them. Let them steal every election from here on. They’re playing the Cloward-Pivin game,fine,collapse the system. The system sucks,and has only rewarded the conmen/women who grift thru it.
    Let it burn,salt the ground where it stood. Take care of yourself,your family,and trusted inner circle. Let the ruling pedophiles continue their freak show,nobody listens or cares what they say or do.

    Any politician is going to have to have brass balls in order to take on Trump. But, I think it can be done by the right man.

    The candidate who points a finger at Trump and says “Donnie, You are a loser.” is going to precipitate a meltdown of galactic proportions that will catapult him to victory.

    But, its going to take titanium huevos.

    I don’t think the average conservative would have gone from somewhat-bemused-by the singular behavior of the 2 parties acting a bit like-minded, and occasional super-shitty actions in government, to believing in an actual evil Deep State on a mission to overthrow the government, if Trump hadn’t come from the outside, like he did, and totally upend their shit show. Trump flushed out maybe 80% (?) of the bad actors in DC. How would one know? There are so many hidden bad actors. Anyway, he overturned rocks and the bugs ran around in the daylight for us to see.

    No politician will ever do that. Look at how Ted Cruz is nose-up-the-ass of Congress. he’s a Congressman, and that has to be the lowest possible job title on my trust scale.

    Trump likes his “vaccine”? I couldn’t care less. I never have gotten on the vax is a killer bandwagon, either. If you’re vaxed, good for you and now shut up about it.

    I suppose my major crit of Trump is that he never united the country, but it seems obvious that is never going to happen. Trump would not have succeeded in Reagan’s time, and vice-versa. What we need is Christ with a whip in the temple court. We need Joan of Arc with a Camaro and mini-guns. Trump was most of the way there; I subscribe to the opinion that he pissed off all the right people. I also mirror what someone said upthread, that trump was stabbed in the back by most of his staff and appointees. DC was the seventh layer of hell for him, and if he runs again that is an interesting thing in and of itself. Even though Trump can buy the tavern, I’d insist on buying all of his drinks. Oh, that’s right, he doesn’t drink.

    DeSantis lawyered for special ops? Give me fukn break. He’s a lawyer and a politician. Trump likes him, I guess. I do like most of what I’ve seen out of DeSantis. But, I’m over politicians and lawyers. No thanks.

    I’d love to see Trump, or a Trumpian character, breathing fire, acting mean, and doing anything and everything legally possible to depose and jail the members of government. And I mean all of them – even the innocent ones. Their crime is being politicians. How can a politician punch the clock in Olympia, or Sacramento, or DC, and live with themself on a daily basis? An actual good person in public office would invect and cuss-out all of his cohort daily, vote “no” on every bill (no compromises – no votes on everything), seek to sunset laws and taxes, and seek criminal charges against most of his peers in office. He’d be back-against-the-wall, picking a fight, swimming in a sea of shit the whole time. No days off. No friends.

    So, although I think you ingrates are flushing Trump too quickly, I agree with the general consensus that it’s up to us, now. We’re the fukn congress.

    I tend to agree with GS as I believe this country is now unfortunately a lost cause, but I will say this: Both parties are sending this country over a cliff. The Republicans at least tend to advance the project more slowly (the speed of sound [R’s] vs. the speed of light [D’s]).

    • ghostsniper January 8, 2022, 12:13 PM

      I believe this rotten assed gov’t, at all levels, but especially the fed, is driving a huge and growing wedge between itself and the citizenry, while at the same time trying to keep said citizenry noticing by inciting warring factions. You can see evidence of this splitting right here in our little group. We bicker among ourselves but we all have that large criminal on our collective backs.

      I also believe the reckless nature of this rotten assed gov’t (RAG) is such that it will eventually run out of track and immolate. It will genocide itself and take as many, worldwide, as it can.

      Before that happens, and it is happening currently, enclaves are slowly and cautiously being created so as to have some sort of continuity when the immolation occurs. We have to live. And we have learned that the normal avenues of trust and support have become the opposite so we are establishing our own independent means. We are going back to what we once were.

      In time, gov’t employees will gather their wits and see the light and start abandoning that which they used to depend on as the RAG becomes increasingly undependable. You will see a downward concentration of attitude as the top tier becomes more and more irrelevant. Old Czech saying, “When the rules become tougher the people get sneakier.” Like it or not, we will all become outlaws, doing what we need to survive and thrive and dodging the tyrannical rules along the way. Many of us will not dodge at the right time and become victims of leviathan and the rest of us will learn from their mistakes, and we will become stronger.

      At some point the fulcrum will be crossed, the balance of power will shift, and that will be the time that we take out the trash once and for all. Because of the way the RAG is ste up this may take a long time, maybe many years, maybe 20 or more. But it WILL happen.

      There is not enough testicular fortitude available now for what Mike Austin has described below. That fortitude has been on a downward slide for 5 decades and is at a peak low right now. But, as we build our enclaves and teach our children and teach ourselves by example and observing others, we will become stronger with each passing day. We are building a new country little by little while the old country slowly dissolves, consumed by it’s own appetite for destruction. You would be wise to look up Kunstlers, “World Made By Hand” and “Living in the Long Emergency”, to get an idea of what the future possibly might look like. I’m not going to say it’s not pretty, but rather, different. And probable. And it will be lead by men and women of moral standing and firm backbones and everyone else will be ground to dust.

    Most here at American Digest have spoken out about elections, Trump, the coming “spicy times” and so on. We have favored this politician or that politician. So my turn: My vote for our next Dear Leader is—drum roll please—Lucius Cornelius Sulla (138 – 78 BC). Yeah, I know he’s dead, but his type has appeared throughout History in one form or another whenever there was a career or cash to be made by overthrowing a government. I did not choose Julius Caesar because he got himself assassinated. Sulla lived out his natural life—if his life could be called anything like natural.

    So imagine an American-type of Sulla. A military man—a colonel would do—who is sick and tired of the Marxist, treasonous and pagan nonsense coming from Washington DC, and despises the current “president” as non-elected and—literally—full of shit. He loathes the pedophilia that surrounds most of the leaders who inhabit that depraved and vile capital. So he pulls “a Sulla”: He gets a large group of followers and marches on Washington and overthrows the government. Firmly in control, he then composes a “proscription list” of all his enemies and publishes the list throughout the capital. Everyone on this list is to be “terminated with extreme prejudice” for a nice sum of money of course. Human nature being naturally avaricious, those on the list are rounded up. Then Sulla composes another list. And another. Until every one of his enemies is gone.

    Secure in everything, our American Sulla then writes a new Constitution, ensuring that the corruption and depravity that dominated the old government cannot get any hold upon the new one. Anyone who disagrees goes on a new proscription list.

    His job accomplished, our Sulla retires—yes, he leaves office voluntarily. He refuses any bodyguards and allows any American to question him in the streets about anything at all. He spends the last year of his life in a year-long party with his new teenage wife. He dies of laughter—yes, laughter. One of his men located a guy who hated Sulla. This unlucky fellow is dragged in front of Sulla while at a party and strangled. The dying man’s eyes bug out so much that Sulla begins to laugh uncontrollably. This causes a hemorrhage, and Sulla bleeds to death right then and right there.

    He had already written his epitaph, and it perhaps the best ever imagined:

    “No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full.”

    One day America might cry out for a leader like Sulla. He will come. I assure you, he will come. Some will like him. Some will not.

      Agreed. And an infantryman is absolutely necessary. If he’s got aviator wings, I won’t say no. I’ll say FUCK NO! (Bush, Bush, Rumsfeld, McNamara) Infantrymen have no fucks to give, and act really dramatically for what you might consider no reason, and then when you see a lifeless hulk in front of the grunt and on the ground, you’ll notice the hulk had a weapon hidden in his hand. There is military tact, and there is infantry tact. It tacts like a hammer, and I will accept no less.

      Mike understands we need a war president and nothing less.

      • Mike Austin January 9, 2022, 4:47 PM

        Without boots on the ground, there can be no conquest. Flyboys and their cool toys can wreak havoc, mayhem and slaughter, but they cannot occupy territory. Raising the American flag on an enemy capital takes men not machines.

  • RedBeard January 8, 2022, 12:49 PM

    How amazing that a (supposedly) grown man (Ghost Sniper) would post something as infantile as this-

    “You don’t have an opposing view.
    You have a little gurlz view.
    Now go change your heavily soiled panties, child.
    Yes, if you act like a child you’ll be treated like one.”

    And that was his reply to my asking “Why do you immediately jump to insults when you are proven wrong?”
    Logic would dictate that his reply was simply to further prove my points. I have to agree with Kevin in PA and Boat Guy in their opinions of Ghost Sniper.

    Obviously, little value can be expected of a person who displays nothing more than the common liberal traits of anger, paranoia, (idle) threats of bravado and violence, alienation, depression, doom & despair, social isolation, uncontrollable emotional outbursts (and possibly senility), and who refers to himself with the cartoon-ish moniker “Ghost Sniper” and “Raging Outlaw Patriot, 2099.”

    I think those are all the same required traits for joining the Seattle chapter of Antifa.

    • ghostsniper January 8, 2022, 1:38 PM

      Look noob, you haven’t even the slightest clue as to how ridiculous you go out of your way to appear. Most people in this group are reading your words and thinking, “What in the hell is wrong with this person?” If you hang around long enough maybe you’ll catch on. I’m not hopeful.

      Lastly, you have never, and will never, ever “prove” me wrong.
      As far as anyone’s opinions? I just don’t GAF.
      I hope I don’t have to stick my foot in your fat ass again.

      • RedBeard January 9, 2022, 3:20 PM

        How generous of you to self-appoint yourself as official spokesperson for “most people in this group.” And your psychic ability to magically hear all their thoughts is impressive- it must be difficult to discern those thoughts from all the other voices in your head.

        Does your fetish of inserting your foot in someone’s ass result from the desire to add more “flavor” to your foot- before it’s reinserted into your mouth?

        And don’t worry about me trying to prove you wrong- you do such a consistently great job of it already, and need no further help .
