Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 10, 2018

Officials in Washington, D.C., are implementing tight security measures in anticipation of Sunday's "Unite the Right" rally and ensuing counterprotests marking the first anniversary of a deadly white nationalist gathering in Charlottesville, Va. D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham and Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) on Thursday announced the measures including banning guns from the rallies -- even for gun owners with legal permits -- and separating protesters and counterprotesters. "The rules are pretty simple," Newsham said. "Don't hurt anyone and don't break anything."

The good news is that the DR probably won't be ruined Sunday by sniper, boaz, ---------, patron, nulli, and the rest of those nazi-coddling morons while they rally about DC with their similarly castrated amigos.

The police sure don't welcome the competition.

Banning guns from a Klan rally?

Why that's just downright unAmerican.

Leave it to rein to make a sexual reference, as always.
Ever since Gannon dumped him for W,he's been like that. A washed up catcher.

But I thought everyone is safer when everyone has guns. Why do the nazi snowflakes need a gun free zone?

If the media would ignore them they would go away. News should not be driven by ratings, it should not be allowed to be a profit center for networks on the public airwaves, just like it was when we had great new casters who gave us honest, straighforward news.

Ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away is why 75 years after WWII we have NAZIs marching openly in America.

Lock them up

You're absolutely correct. I've had those same thoughts myself. In many ways the media is the enabler of these attention seeker. The media has become the same sensationalist for the sake of ratings as those they film.

The object I suppose is "if it bleeds, it leads" and the more the better. I don't see any need for the daily extended coverage of these tragic occurrences that only serve to encourage more of the same for publicity purposes.

I really wish they'd knock it off.

There are certain constitutional prohibition that don't allow your "final solutions."

Were it not so, we'd have the same "Secret Police" (as in Russia) or the same "Gestapo" as in WWII (Germany) or the same "Republican Guard" (as in Iraq).

You can't always assume YOU won't be on the receiving end in the future.

OTOH, if Trump manages to get a second term I expect we'll see a deluge of mind-bending propaganda about the Constitution being obsolete. There's an incremental and subtle madness controlling Trump's administration which has a well defined purpose.

You just described one of those purposes in your "Lock them up" post above.
