Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence chided a Donald Trump supporter Tuesday who called for a revolution if Hillary Clinton wins the election. During an event Tuesday, a woman rose to tell Pence that she was concerned about voter fraud handing the election to Clinton said that she would participate in a "revolution" if Clinton headed to the White House. "I don't want this to happen but I will tell you personally if Hillary Clinton gets in, I myself, I'm ready for a revolution because we can't have her in," the woman said. Pence shook his head and waved his hand and said, "Yeah, don't say that." "There's a revolution coming on November the 8th, I promise you," he added.

Pence launched into a talk about an ongoing voter fraud investigation in Indiana where police actually raided a voter registration office. The investigation has expanded into more than 50 counties. "Elections are administered at the state level. They are and I'll tell you in the state of Indiana right now, we got a pretty vigorous investigation into voter fraud going on," Pence said.

This is what happen when you daily tell people that someone should be in jail without the benefit of them having an actual trial and a finding of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't care what Hillary did or did not do, this is how you rabble-rouse especially when many of your supporters can't tell hyperbole from a bole weevil. When you pre-condemn something that already hasn't happened and sow anger and paranoia over the good citizens of both parties who take their valuable time to administer our elections, you're placing them in unwarranted suspicion too. Every precinct has both Democrat and Republican judges, workers and a local appellate system. These people have often worked years and years with each other and respect both the integrity and importance of doing their jobs forthrightly. They're partisan but understand fairness is part of their duty. Have you ever seen sketchy people behind the desks at the places where YOU vote?

The rubes who hear these cries for vigilante justice - let's call it what it is - is rich coming from someone the US Justice Department confirmed actually admitted to committing sexual assaults solely for his own prurient, selfish pleasure.

This ish is scary because these are likely the "2nd Amendment remedy" folks cause it doesn't sound like she was talking about a peaceful march to city hall. And heaven help us when someone says this to Donald because I can almost guarantee his response won't be as astute as Pence's. His will likely be along the lines of "Yes, that's what they're saying and they may be right, who knows, but I don't think so." And I can also guarantee far too many of them will either not hear or choose to ignore his final 5 words.

And on the voter registration fraud, that's what it is. So far there has been no connection to anyone casting an illegal vote. And the investigation covers 50 counties. I live in Indiana. This state is the reddest of the red because working class whites vote consistently Republican, and minorities are just that except in two pockets, Gary and Indianapolis. Indiana is not a state where leftist groups are going to practice widespread voter registration fraud. Hell, in the majority of counties the Democrats don't even field candidates for key races, making the spring primary the REAL election. And since Democrats can't vote, the candidates with the most radical views often win. Both our legislatures contain GOP supermajorities and because of this the state is gerrymandered to the point the GOP has 7 of the 9 Congressional seats.

It just doesn't make a lot of sense on it's face to coordinate something with such a minuscule prospect of any positive returns.

That POS is going to be the first one to go if there's a real revolution.

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right

A few months ago I had stated that I was concerned that Mr Trump would not be able to control the monster he was creating. I said this back in the days when Mr Trump was telling the attendees of his rallies that he would pay their legal fees if they beat up the protesters at Mr Trump's rallies.

At the time, I thought Mr Trump's rhetoric was a bit extreme.

Little did I know what the future would hold.

Now it is appearing that Mr Trump is beginning to lose control of what he has created.

..but then he IMMEDIATELY started talking about the possibility of voter fraud and for Republicans (of course!) to be "poll watchers" (that's Republicanspeak for intimidators)

E1g1, there are normally poll watchers and international observers in democratic elections across the world. No "Republican conspiracy" needed.

Indeed

Perhaps we need to define "Revolution."

Sanders also spoke of a Revolution but it was a revolution in government.

If Trump and Trumpets are attempting to incite violence I say go for it. We are a nation of laws. There has been a peaceful transfer of power in America since March 4, 1801. And if the GOP want to be the party that tries to change that then go for it.

Let's see where that gets them. We are not afraid of Trump and the Deplorables.

The fact that these "willing revolutionaries" think there is enough support from the general population for a violent takeover of the government, shows just how much of a bubble these people live in.

Has there been concern over "Black Panthers" coercing voters at polls since the 1960s? First time hearing about that "concern" is in this thread, lol.

The revolution will not be right back after a message
About a white tornado, white lightning, or white people
You will not have to worry about a germ on your Bedroom
a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl
The revolution will not go better with Coke
The revolution will not fight the germs that cause bad breath
The revolution WILL put you in the driver's seat

The revolution will not be televised
WILL not be televised, WILL NOT BE TELEVISED
The revolution will be no re-run brothers
The revolution will be live

Try 2008. You know, when the "one term president" usurper from Kenya won the "only poll that counts".

Jeeze, people raising this as "an issue" are/were wimps. All states allow voters to cast votes in a secret ballot, and only West Virginia still allows voters to cast "open ballots." Lol, I doubt there were/are any Black Panther presence in Appalachia, except possibly in the paranoid minds of intoxicated Hillpeople.

Donald Trump continues to do damage with his "solution" to his outlandish predictions of voter fraud. We now have a large group of Americans who believe two disturbing things: 1) the American election system is being fraudulently manipulated by one presidential candidate; and 2) it's their job – the stalwart keepers of democracy who support Trump – to prevent and punish those involved in this conspiracy.

Inspiring supporters to attempt voter intimidation at the polls is a recipe for disaster.

Yeah, I don't understand the mindset of left/right wing folks who pretend to vacate bodily fluids into their Depends over imaginary boogeypersons at their polling stations. Regardless of age and political affiliation, grow up and cast your vote and STFU.

The only interesting aspect regarding polling stations throughout the 50 states, is that general election infrastructure is not (yet) considered worthy of "critical infrastructure protection" by the DHS. Whereas, relatively less important pieces of infrastructure, such as movie sets, are considered by DHS to be "critical infrastructure."

Priorities (or lack of).

Trump is the symptom of a larger disease among Americans.

America is now anti-establishment as it has failed America.

It has chosen corporate needs over human needs.

Rich over poor.

Immigrants over citizens.

I've been saying this for months.

This is what gives Trump the advantage Hillary desperately tries to deny.

She IS the establishment that has failed so miserably...

This article from Bloomberg suggests that Trump might be jockeying as much for long-term influence within the Republican Party as trying to actually win the election. Could be bad news for the GOP.

FTA:
The raging civil war between the pro-Trump nativist faction and anti-Trump pluralist wing has left some Republicans wondering if they will ever be able to reconcile, or if the party is on the cusp of a cataclysmic fracture.

"I think there's a Trump party and there's a Republican Party. I have a lot of problems squaring the two," said Stuart Stevens, the chief strategist for Romney's 2012 campaign and an outspoken opponent of Trump.

Republicans fearful the party is in the midst of a demographic death spiral want to unequivocally disavow unsavory elements that are drawn to Trump's anti-immigration and protectionist platform, including white nationalists such as David Duke.

"We have to be able to tell the truth about things like the alt-right and the white nationalists and some demagogic messaging around immigration," said David Kochel, a strategist for Jeb Bush's 2016 campaign. "There is no place in the party for people like David Duke. They should not feel attracted to our message. They should not feel welcome in our party."

Good for Pence, shows a cool head and is telling people to go vote cause he knows it won't be for Hillary.

And notice, this was a woman who said such a thing, Hillary doesn't have the women vote like she thinks she does.

Yes.

Because the comment of a single woman in a country of over 126 million adult women is a clear indicator of the women vote. /snark

Maybe, but it says volumes about these folks that they chose Trump as the vehicle for their frustration over Bernie.
