Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 23, 2018

A bomb was found in a mailbox at George Soros's home in Bedford, N.Y. A police bomb squad blew it up, and the FBI's anti-terrorism unit is now investigating. The Bedford Police Department told NPR that one of Soros's employees found a suspicious package in the mailbox and opened it, finding the explosive device.

So some right wing thug was willing to blow up George Soros's employee in order to demonstrate their own stupidity about George Soros and what he actually does with his wealth.

Over at /r/the_donald they're convinced that this was a Democrat false flag, if not orchestrated by Soros himself, rather than the predictable outcome of years of violent rhetoric against Soros. These are the type of top minds we're contending with.

Do the GOP supporters still want the rhetoric toned down, or will they stay quite in this case since it was George Soros who they tried to kill, instead of some republican supporter?

So Trump invents some stupid story about Soros paying the caravan migrants, and then a deplorable puts a bomb in Soros' mailbox. Is that about right?

Trump may not be intentionally inciting violence, but at minimum he's too stupid or sociopathic to realize how gullible and angry his supporters are.

Funny that you have to say "whatabout this" and not actually condemn the act.

Funny that Repugs were all quiet when Trump supporter, James Royal Patrick Jr., 53, was charged after 'making threats to kill' Democrat senators and 'weak' Republicans if they vote against Brett Kavanaugh.

We could play the whatabout game all day long now. The violence is everywhere (and probably going to get worse).

Just because Fox News didn't play Democrats condemning the alleged attack, doesn't mean they didn't. Twitter was pretty vocal about opposition to such things.

Ironically, it doesn't appear the letter actually contained ricin. The letter just said it did.

But you are missing the point. These types of attacks are the outcome of the vitriol spewed by Republicans that Democrats are only now starting to spew back. You want Dems to condemn the harsh language, you better start getting the GOP to do it first.

The American pattern of violence against "liberals" whether fake or real continues unabated. Trump has motivated them. The gruesome death of one journalist is more important, in the eyes of the mass media than 24 million destitute Yemenis, that we are helping to bomb because the Saudi who murdered Jamal Khashoggi does not like the President the Yemenis people elected.

We have a US President that couldn't care less about morality his only concern is his own money... and its OK that the Saudis attacked us on 9-11, because OIL.

Six bombs sent and not one went off. Oh come on, this looks like a political stunt. Six sent to prominent Democrats or major contributors and not one detonation, seriously, these things were not intended to work. Real bombers tend to blow themselves up, we used to find the guys planting IEDs spread over the road or in what was left of their Fiat in Iraq. With as much evidence as the FBI now has in their possession they will find who built these things. Why don't we wait and see who made them. Could be some right winger trying to kill his enemies, could be some lefty trying to garner sympathy for their cause. In ether case the fool that did this needs to go to a cell for the balance of their remaining life. Maybe we will get lucky and the fool will blow himself up building one, save us the expense of putting him in prison.
