In Which Donald Trump Explicitly Blames Hillary Clinton for the Firebombing of a North Carolina GOP Office

Politics • Views: 43,523

There are no words.

A Republican Party office in North Carolina was firebombed last night:

A GOP office in Hillsborough, North Carolina, was firebombed overnight, with a swastika and the words “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” spray painted on an adjacent building, according to local officials.

And the Republican candidate for president of the United States immediately blamed it — directly! — on his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Here’s the tweet in embedded form:

And here’s a screenshot, in case Donald Trump or his campaign staff delete this astoundingly horrible tweet. Notice that it already has tens of thousands of retweets and likes from Trump’s delusional followers.

This is bad. This is really bad.

It’s not even his office or his campaigns office. It’s just a GOP field office.

Charles:

On a laptop, if you open the Tweet reply window and the Tweet has a tall image, the buttons appear out of frame and there’s no way to scroll down. What if you set those with a height in JavaScript and then set the div to overflow-y: auto? This way on “short” screens we can get to the buttons.

So now people who support Clinton are “animals”? Nice.

Rather rich coming from a guy who openly says maybe Clinton will need to be killed, has called for voter intimidation on election day and is trying to undermine our democracy.

I live just down the road from Hillsborough and it could easily be the work of local right wing groups. We think in terms of the KKK and racism here. Use of a swastika and “Nazi” in that context is not common. Also, “leave now or else” is something pretty in keeping with the KKK.

GOP Congressman Hopes God Is Working through Imperfect Candidate Donald Trump:

huffingtonpost.com;

Guy says Trump is part of God’s Plan (tm).

Funny how the guy in office now who won by two landslides is not part of Conservative God’s (tm) plan.

So presuming Hillary Clinton wins, will she be part of God’s Plan? (tm)

As best as I can tell, when a Republican wins, it’s part of God’s plan, and when a Democrat wins it was Satan involved somehow. And that pesky Allah, with women as presidents or prime ministers of majority-Muslim countries must also be part of Satan’s plan as well.

Glad I’m an atheist.

Mixed clues: The swastika is correctly oriented (open to the right on top) but it is rotated the wrong way. Spelling is correct and typography is good for the informal spray paint medium. This indicates some degree of intellectual capacity but that is as likely to be a neurotic Randian as a clueless moonbat. Probably not the work of actual nazis or KKK, neither of which would have the demonstrated level of intellect and artistry.

Speaking as someone whose husband developed epilepsy (and then, recovered from it a decade or so later I’m happy to say) it is a really, really stupid reason to divorce someone. Once upon a time (1950’s and probably before that) epilepsy was considered to make people unsuited to married life, probably because controlling seizures was difficult, but there has been much medical progress.

It was due to eugenics. States (including my own) considered epileptics “feebleminded” and incarcerated them or sterilised them (or both).

I agree with you on all points—just wanted to point out that Dems step up to the plate (they wanted $10,000 and were close to it in 4 hours) no matter who’s at fault. Like Michelle says, “When they go low, we go high.”

I truly don’t think it sounds like a Democratic “thing,” and if the Republican office in a Dem county is anything like our Dem office in a Republican county, $10,000 is probably more than they’ve ever seen in one place at any time.

Facebook Post

An eight-year female Navy veteran parked in the parking lot in a store in North Carolina, in a space the store reserves for military veterans.

She came back to a note under her windshield wiper chastising her for parking in a veteran’s space.

Her response went to Facebook:

“To the person who left this note on my windshield today at the Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord, NC (photo of note included in Facebook post):

I know I parked in one of the Veteran Parking spaces today, it was hot. I had been in and out of my car several times already this afternoon, and I was only going to be a minute. Besides, the parking lot was full, so I just did it. It was the first time, and I won’t do it again. I’m sorry…

I’m sorry that you can’t see my eight years of service in the United Sates Navy. I’m sorry that your narrow misogynistic world view can’t conceive of the fact that there are female Veterans. I’m sorry that I have to explain myself to people like you. Mostly, I’m sorry that we didn’t get a chance to have this conversation face to face, and that you didn’t have the integrity and intestinal fortitude to identify yourself, qualities the military emphasizes.

Which leads to one question, I served, did you?”

Yeah. I was wondering how Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, etc., ended up underwater, given that their average elevation is above 5,000 ft.

Somewhere in the crazier parts of the Internet are maps showing how the USA will look after the so-called “pole shift.” They look similar to the one in 159.

If you haven’t heard about this crazy notion, some fringe science (aka fantasy land) believers say the Earth will flip over, putting the N pole where the S pole is now. Needless to say, such an event will be bad news for everyone living on Earth.

Good thing it can’t happen.

It is possible that the magnetic field of the Earth will flip. This reversal has happened several times in the Earth’s history, and creatures which depend on magnetic orientation adapt to it, since it takes several thousand years or more to occur. No one else would notice any real difference, except maybe Scouts and orienteering enthusiasts.

Somehow fringe people took the magnetic field flip and concluded the entire Earth would flip over — soon, very soon. Don’t say we didn’t tell you.

Somehow fringe people took the magnetic field flip and concluded the entire Earth would flip over — soon, very soon. Don’t say we didn’t tell you.

Magnetic field reversals have happened many, many times and we’re probably overdue for one. As the field passes through zero, the Earth’s magnetosphere will fade away, allowing a lot more solar wind particles and cosmic radiation to strike the atmosphere, so it’s not really true that nobody would notice any difference.

Well, true. The aurorae could also be more widespread, and probably the mutation rate would increase among organisms. But the reversals are not sudden, so we would have some warning if the Earth’s B field went to zero. There would probably be denialists, though. There are always denialists.

Poland’s foreign minister calls Russia’s missile deployment to its Kaliningrad exclave “inappropriate.”

In July, Poland suspended visa-free travel by Russians in Kaliningrad to Poland, citing unspecified security concerns, at the time for one month.

Now, Poland has stated it will not reinstate visa-free travel.

Things have heated up a lot since my wife and I were in Gdansk last year (thirty miles or so from the border with Russia’s exclave). When we were there, Gdansk was overwhelmed by Russian tourists, which are a boon to the economy of the area. As Americans, we were definitely the minority of tourists.

Yeah. I was wondering how Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, etc., ended up underwater, given that their average elevation is above 5,000 ft.

Somewhere in the crazier parts of the Internet are maps showing how the USA will look after the so-called “pole shift.” They look similar to the one in 159.

If you haven’t heard about this crazy notion, some fringe science (aka fantasy land) believers say the Earth will flip over, putting the N pole where the S pole is now. Needless to say, such an event will be bad news for everyone living on Earth.

Good thing it can’t happen.

It is possible that the magnetic field of the Earth will flip. This reversal has happened several times in the Earth’s history, and creatures which depend on magnetic orientation adapt to it, since it takes several thousand years or more to occur. No one else would notice any real difference, except maybe Scouts and orienteering enthusiasts.

Marlene Winnell at Alternet weighs in on why she thinks Donald Trump appeals to evangelical Christians (and other Christians) …

Essentially, the thrust of her argument (backed with citations from history and the Bible) is that his appeals to his base of voters are essentially the same arguments made for Christianity as a whole (including mainstream churches).

alternet.org

Trump actually represents the worst of what might be called “deep Christianity.” This is the set of deep-seated assumptions in orthodox Christianity, whether explicit or implicit, conscious or unconscious, that are held most clearly by fundamentalist believers but are also embedded in Christianity of all stripes. Importantly, they affect many in the American population who are not church-goers but simply live in our Christianity-infused culture. These assumptions are ancient, but they have modern applications. Over all, they are a threat to a present-day democracy.

She goes on to describe these assumptions as she sees them.

Was off playing on another Website (do those exist beyond LGF and Wonkette?)

testyourvocabulary.com which I was lead to reading an article on The Economist Website. (Strange how blasé perusing the Interwebs leads one to all sorts of unusual Websites.)

The point of that Website is the authors are trying to gather data on the vocabulary sizes of English speakers (both native and non-native).

The test only takes a few minutes, and the methodology of how they arrived at the dictionary they used to created their test is interesting in its own right. (The test is not specific to British or American English.)

They are also trying to correlate education level, age, and gender to vocabulary.

So with my high school education, I weighed in at an estimated useful vocabulary of thirty-five thousand words (useful vocabulary defined as regularly-used words in speaking or writing), which is right at the top of their “average” range, plus or minus 10% (the margin of error in the test, which they also explain).

Slang and proper nouns, plus other words such as the names of animals are thrown out of their dictionary, as those might be specific to living in a particular place. (For example, there might not be too many people in Nebraska who know what “puffin” is, though I imagine a lot of people in Washington state do.)

So I am bummed. I am merely average. /sulk

Aside here from a poorly-educated liberal: How does announcing you are voting for someone not equate to endorsing the same someone?

The Post writes:

The Republican is trying to walk a fine line on the party’s presidential candidate after the release of a 2005 video in which he bragged about groping women and accusations about unwanted sexual advances from a growing number of former acquaintances.

Glenn made his latest evolution on Trump in a candidate forum Friday evening hosted by Colorado Concern, a political group led by local business leaders. He previously had said he would write-in vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, instead of vote for Trump.

The Arizona Republic’s publisher wrote an op-ed addressing the threats against the paper after endorsing Hillary Clinton. In 125 years, the newspaper never endorsed a Democrat for President.

azcentral.com

The article starts:

As someone who has spent a career in the business of words, it’s unusual to find myself speechless.

Yet, there I was, a little more than two weeks ago.

What is the correct response, really, to this?

YOU’RE DEAD. WATCH YOUR BACK.

WE WILL BURN YOU DOWN.

YOU SHOULD BE PUT IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD AS A TRAITOR.

How did I come to be hearing these threats?

When the primaries were still ongoing for the Republican Party, the Arizona Republic took a stand against Mr. Trump.

To the anonymous caller who invoked the name of Don Bolles — he’s the Republic reporter who was assassinated by a car bomb 40 years ago — and threatened that more of our reporters would be blown up because of the endorsement, I give you Kimberly. She is the young woman who answered the phone when you called. She sat in my office and calmly told three Phoenix police detectives what you had said. She told them that later, she walked to church and prayed for you. Prayed for patience, for forgiveness. Kimberly knows free speech requires compassion.

while clinton racks up republican newspapers and other endorsements, steve schmidt, john mccain’s chief strategist is scathingly blunt, via electoral-vote.com

- I think the Republican Party has an outstanding chance of fracturing
- You have a massive reckoning coming due that will play out over years on the serially putting party above country
- [Some Republicans say:] I’m voting for him but I don’t endorse him. It’s a chickenshit position
- Donald Trump is obviously manifestly unfit in every conceivable way to occupy the office of the American head of state

In short, Schmidt thinks that Trump has surrounded himself with people who have made a living in the Clinton conspiracy business and not only is it a terrible strategy for this election, but it is bad for the country and is going to wreak havoc with the Republican Party for years to come. (V)

Alongside her political career, Stein also recorded musical albums with collaborator Ken Selcer in the folk-rock band Somebody’s Sister.[57] She plays the conga and djembe drums[58] and the guitar.[59] During the 1990s and 2000s, the duo released four studio albums: Flashpoint, Somebody’s Sister, Green Sky, and Circuits To The Sun.[60] Many of the songs focus on issues Stein emphasizes in her political career: peace, justice, and climate action.[61] The pair also often performed at live events, such as the 2008 Green-Rainbow Convention in Leominster, Massachusetts.[62] The band was a semifinalist in Musician’s best unsigned bands contest in 1996 and 1998.[33]

Help me out here, Lizards. It’s a Gulfstream 5, but there’s no flight data, which, admittedly not knowing a hell of a lot about the in’s and out’s of commercial aviation, does to my untrained eye look……odd. My question is, does this seem peculiar to anyone else?

There is that.

But I knew about HB2, however, I was unaware of the other effect on a suicide hotline that deals specifically with transgender people. Those hotlines are extraordinarily rare. In some cases, suicide hotlines are not well prepared (or even actually counter-productive) when dealing with transgender people, and having a hotline to specifically deal with those issues is literally a life or death thing.

So, yes, it was a nice thing and it got some free air-time, during which none of the shit the NC-GOP has done will be mentioned, nobody on the GOP side will be persuaded, and none of those fucked over by the NC-GOP will be helped.

In fact none of those fucked over by the NC-GOP will even be mentioned, even in passing.

You’re talking grand strategy (which I’m fundamentally in agreement with) and how it WILL affect trans people.

I’m talking about the effects the GOP has ALREADY had on trans people at a much lower level.

I entirely believe that a Clinton administration would be immeasurably better than a Trump administration, but that doesn’t do anything about the problems that exist right now. The life-and-death problems that exist which were created and encouraged by the NC-GOP

So, yes, mathematically I’d agree that being angry about a small donation isn’t a great idea. But at the same time, its also a very emotionally charged subject.

When the primaries were still ongoing for the Republican Party, the Arizona Republic took a stand against Mr. Trump.

But the journalists I introduced you to here walk into the newsroom every day to do their jobs.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. In response to the bombing of the NC GOP headquarters, Democrats have raised thousands of dollars to help them rebuild.

Trump has made no indication that he will do the same.

Trump also has continued his ongoing assault on reality by claiming that the election will be stolen as a result of voter fraud. That makes sense when his key news source is Prison Planet, infowars, and conspiracy nuts.

Hillary Clinton made explicit the connection yesterday, and of course, Trump proves her point by quote-tweeting prison planet this morning.

Trump also proves the point by apparently believing that voter fraud is what happens if you don’t vote for Trump in this election. In other words, if you’ve decided Trump is a bigot, misogynist, business fraud, sex offender, nativist, panders to white supremacists and have voted for someone else, especially if you are a minority (black, Jewish, Hispanic, etc.) or a woman, then your vote is suspect.

I tuned in this morning to NPR, in the middle of the daily “David Greene interviews talking heads from both sides” thing he does. I didn’t need the intro to tell me one of the talkers was Cokie Roberts, but couldn’t place the other voice.

She actually put forth the idea that the media has been biased against Trump and that his ranting and raving about the “rigged election” was based on that, and nothing else.

When Cokie called her on it — and you could hear her eyes rolling through the radio — to say that not only is Trump calling out the “biased media” but also complaining of election fraud in tweets and at rallies, she galloped back into both-sides land and said since Harry Reid and others have raised the specter of the Russians interfering with our elections, that these are equivalent and both sides have been saying “rigged.”

Imagine my surprise at the end of the segment when I found out the unknown voice is Molly Hemingway. What a hack.

Anyone carrying water for Trump on the rigged elections idea does not deserve to be taken seriously ever again.

How come people keep saying Donald Trump was not until recently endorsed by any major newspapers?

He was, at least by a columnist in one, back on August 23.

Pravda.

Yes, that Pravda.

pravdareport.com

It is a very long article detailing the “decades of corruption” of the US Government, comparing the US Senate to the Politburo of the Soviet Union, &c &c &c.

It is worth reading through though, partly to get the thinking of the Russian government on the US election.

The article ends with the three paragraphs below:

I am not comparing Trump, but I am reminding readers of some of the unpleasant details that never appear on the plaques of monuments to such great figures [previous US leaders]. I do very much believe, despite the sometimes loose and careless words of an inexperienced politician, that there is great promise in this man. He is a doer, not a talker, but his Michigan speech especially had intimations of greatness in it. Just as he said, addressing America’s more than thirty-million black population, “What the hell do you have to lose?”

And just look at the alternative. My God, none are so blind as those who will not see, and anyone who can be enthusiastic for a woman of her bloody and corrupt achievements is indeed willfully and dangerously blind.

Many commentators still miss the most essential truth of this election, and I owe the profound observation to Robert Reich. This election is not about Left versus Right. It is not about Democrat versus Republican. It is about pro- versus anti-establishment, a very bloody, corrupt, and dishonest establishment.

Here is the document contained in that tweet. She provided the link in an earleir tweet.

webcache.googleusercontent.com

Brief:
Assange is alleged to have done video chats with the 8-year-old sister of a 22-year-old woman using an online dating site, toddandclare.com.

The Trumpets won’t be able to just stroll in, challenge any voter they suspect of being black / minority / Muslim unqualified at their leisure. They are going to scream that the rigged system kept them from showing how rigged it was.

Re: the Assange/toddandclare.com fracas

T&C Network Solutions was the only online dating site to be granted a place on the UN Global Compact.

Per the reporting requirements of the Global Compact, the company reported to the UN its interactions with Assange and the reasons for canceling the contract with him, subsequent to the child sex charges leveled against him in the Bahamas on Sept. 28..

As a result of the report, the UN delisted the company from the Global Compact on Oct. 12.

Yesterday (or today — I’m unclear as to the precise date), Assange has had his Internet access cut off.

Stay tuned for further developments.

Donald Trump joked about being a sexual predator in a 2006 interview with Howard Stern

In a 2006 interview with Howard Stern meant to promote the latest season of The Apprentice, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump jokingly bragged about being a sexual predator while seated next to his daughter Ivanka.

The video of the interview shows Trump’s awkward reaction to Stern and co-host Robin Quivers during a discussion about Ivanka’s romantic relationships.

“Donald, seriously, you know about sexual predators and things like that,” Stern says in the clip, which has resurfaced as several women have accused Trump of sexual assault.

You are one!” Quivers says.

Trump laughs and shrugs his shoulders, appearing to say “it’s true” under his breath several times.

Trump ramps up voter fraud claim, digs in against women accusers

Trump supporter Steve King, a Republican congressman from Iowa, was pressed Monday on CNN about whether Trump was making an unsubstantiated claim in saying the election would be illegitimate.

“I wouldn’t say it’s completely unsubstantiated,” King said. “Partially unsubstantiated - I would agree with that.”

I saw a video going around FB that was supposedly women stuffing ballot boxes in the U.S. for Hillary. Never mind that: 1) The video had at the top of it all throughout the heading “Russia ballot stuffing,” the time stamp on one of the video was was the date of the election in Russia; 3) I can’t think of a single state in the U.S. that has ballots like that; 4) I’ve never seen the type of tables and chairs shown to be used in the U.S.; and, 5) At the time it happened, various media sources reported it along with those very same videos. Someone simply went in and put a state name in the video for the different polling places. No logic was used including the fact that the video had RUSSIA all over it!

Trump Supporter Dan Bowm Tells Reporters ‘Hillary Needs To Be Taken Out’

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, a Donald Trump supporter at an Ohio rally alluded to the need to assassinate Hillary Clinton if she won the presidency, calling it his duty as a “patriot.”

“I feel like Hillary needs to be taken out,” said a rally-goer named Dan Bowman. “If she gets in the government, I’ll do everything in my power to take her out of power. If I have to be a patriot, I will.”

“What does that mean?” WSJ asked.

“Take it any way you want to take it,” Bowman responded enigmatically

That’s not quite as bad as it looks. In the second column from the right, you can see that there were enough respondents under 45 to print results.

However, only about 19% of the sample appears to have been under 45 judging by the listed margins of error (MoE is inversely proportional to the square root of the sample size). Ohio exit polls showed approximately 42% of voters in 2012 were under 45.

I’m not a pollster or a statistician, but I am pretty sure the sample set isn’t the end all be all of the poll. They get the set of folks that actually answer the phone and answer the questions. After that they use turnout models to weight under represented groups in the sample higher and vice versa. They may have a bad turnout model, but just because the sample isn’t totally representative doesn’t necessarily make a poll invalid.

I think anyhow…maybe someone more familiar with polling will tell me how completely off base I am.

Here’s how the Arizona Republic backs up it’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

To those who said we should be shut down, burned down, who said they hoped we would cease to exist under a new presidential administration, I give you Nicole. She is our editor who directs the news staff, independent of our endorsements. After your threats, Nicole put on her press badge and walked with her reporters and photographers into the latest Donald Trump rally in Prescott Valley, Ariz. She stood as Trump encouraged his followers to heckle and boo and bully journalists. Then she came back to the newsroom to ensure our coverage was fair. Nicole knows free speech requires an open debate.

To those of you who have said that someone who disagrees with you deserves to be punished, I give you Phil. Our editorial page editor is a lifelong Republican, a conservative and a patriot. He was an early voice of reason, arguing calmly that Donald Trump didn’t represent the values of the party he loves. Phil understands that free speech sometimes requires bravery.

To those of you who have spit on, threatened with violence, screamed at and bullied the young people going door-to-door selling subscriptions, I give you those dozens of young men and women themselves. Many sell subscriptions to work their way through school. Most were too frightened to share even their first names here. But they are still on the job. They know that free speech is part of a society that values hard work and equal opportunity.

Also, skimming over that 538 map, I see that AZ is really the only race on the board where he makes it anything like a real “tossup” - every other state seems to have its “chances” rated no less than 66-34 (either way) with many blowouts - fortunately for Mrs. Clinton, mainly small-EV states.
The Dem campaign putting money into Arizona makes sense: Texas, not so much. Yes, its 38 EVs would make a nice prize - or more accurately, a tasty frosting on the victory cake - but I have a feeling Nate’s assessment of Clinton’s chances there (14.8%) is going to be sadly accurate.

re: #557 Sir John Barron

If that’s the margin on November 9 I’ll just…I don’t know. But I’d be happy.

Those figures still leave 5% undecided. If they break 3:2 for Clinton, and Stein gets 1%, which I think is more likely, and the other 1% come to their senses, it comes to 54/40/5/1. That’s what I’m hoping for.

Heh…more checking the Google search on “Ohio Postal Worker Destroys ballots.”

One site, proudcons .com has this as a headline: Postal Worker Caught Destroying Absentee Trump Ballots in Major Swing State.

Caught destroying was he? All that from a tweet. Who caught him…where is he today?

And the first line of the “story” at Proud Conservative web site: Voter fraud and election rigging is perhaps the worst in this presidential election that any in history. At least that’s the way it looks given all of the shady things that are happening against Trump.

The WORST IN HISTORY!!!

Oh my…this election is so full of Trumped Up Shit it is no longer funny. I now people like to bend words to hint at something bad…but this is just pure making a whole story out of nothing.

This is fantastic reporting from the “At Least the Way It Looks” school of journalism.

And then comes the belief it happened as it has been “reported” so it must be true.

I’ll keep looking for local coverage…it may take some time.

re: #558 jeffreyw

There may be a German word for that! When I was working there was a fellow who every day brought a lunch that was usually a granola bar and a slice of bologna on Wonder bread. He would eat that shit and try to say he was eating healthy and I would laugh and laugh because he kept sneaking peeks at my lunch.

i saw some commenter somewhere (not here) spell it as “shodden-freud” last week

i smiled to my smug superior self

I’ve been seeing her stuff on Ohio stations. Doing more than one thing at a time must wobble their minds.
