Is The GOP Trying To Destroy The Earth?
Of course they are not. The GOP are people, Americans just as Democrats are.
Because you disagree with someone is no reason to impugn evil motives to them.
This is like saying: Are Democrats trying to destroy the economy?
It is not only inflammatory, diminishing any chance of improvement or compromise.
It is also just plan stupid.
Cop ‘Accidentally’ Shot Mental Health Therapist Trying To Protect HimSo it was an accident: he wasn't trying to shoot the black man who was compliant and had surrendered, he was trying to shoot the mentally disabled guy who sitting down, but was in possession of a toy truck. Oh, well, that's alright then.
The problem seems that we arm police before they are trained enough to handle being armed.
Don't bring a knife to a gun fight and don't bring facts to a Republican convention
One should not bring facts to ANY convention: GOP or Democrat, Tory or Labour, SDP or CDU, AK or....(ooops, there is no other party in Turkey, as we speak any opposition is being fired, arrested, executed and tried - in that order - after a fake coup.)
Bottom line is politicians HATE facts, particularly facts that don't agree with them. They especially hate fact-checking: it does so dilute the impact of a sound bite and can absolutely ruin a good lie.
