Bomber

Postby sloopjohnc » 26 Oct 2018, 17:47

They've located the van they think transported the bombs and taken someone into custody.

That was a pretty scary three days.

I expected Nancy Pelosi to be the next victim. Kinda surprised she wasn't one of the original recipients.

Amazing that Soros had time to make such a convincing van while sending himself pipe bombs.

That van was probably made by George Clooney and his Hollyweird buddies.

and Trump tweets

Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!

Jeff Session remarks he doesn't know why the bomber targeted Democrats, apart from "what you might normally expect."

What is this supposed to mean? When did we start to "normally expect" people to do mass mail bombings? Is he implying that it's normal to expect maniacs to try to assassinate well-known liberals? Is it a dig at his boss?

I'm really having trouble unpacking this!

It was CNN too, but I guess they're lumped in with them.

New York Times: "They Were Sent Pipe Bombs. Here’s What They Said About Trump"

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/26/nyre ... sives.html

Someone on Twitter: "This is the attempted assassination equivalent of 'Trump Sexually Harrassed Them. Here’s What They Were Wearing.'"

This is some last-straw shit. I'll continue to do their crossword puzzle, but otherwise we're breaking up. Am I over-reacting?

"This feels like a spot - I have this fear this could be some Russian operation too - designed to do what's happening now. More of this - you know. In some ways, we shouldn't rule out - it is dividing us," NBC's Chuck Todd said during a panel on the bombing attempts.

Fox news mouthpiece victim-blames CNN:

Conservative writer Emily Jashinsky first noted that “obviously CNN was the victim this week.”

“But when you see at rallies people chanting CNN sucks[,]... CNN makes no effort to understand why people feel that way,” she continued.

“They do the opposite, right? They, you know, act like they’re the victims, that they’ve done nothing wrong to deserve this.”
