U.S. Rep. Randy Weber, a Republican from Friendswood, joined most of the other Republicans in the House of Representatives in voting against a resolution in condemning President Donald Trump for tweets he made Sunday about four Democratic congresswomen.

Trump tweeted Sunday that four women — Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

Racist tweet? Sycophants to the rescue!

Carlos Ponce

The "squad" is demanding Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledge they are "women of color". That runs contrary to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King's Dream that people be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said, "I think they’re not Democrats, quite honestly, they’re socialists." Will the Leftist now call what he said "racist" because he is speaking of four "women of color"? Trump's tweet was not racist. He doesn't mention their race nor even give their names in that tweet. Why isn't the MSM calling out the four for their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel, racist comments. Such as: Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) - "...we don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don't want to be a black voice. We don't need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don't want to be a queer voice." These women are entitled to their opinion but if you are going to call out the President for a non-racist tweet...... By the way, if you look at biographical websites you will find Alexandria Ocasio Cortez listed as "white". What is a "person of color"? Unless you're an albino EVERYBODY has color. I just got my DNA report which shows I am like most Americans - a mixture. As I surmised mostly Native American and Spanish-Portuguese, followed by Irish and Scottish (which came as a surprise), European Jewish, French, Benin/Togo, Italy, Senegal and Northern Africa all in single digit percentages. I suppose many would call me a "person of color" but I'm an American - AND DARN PROUD OF IT !

Jim Forsythe

"Send them back! Send them back!" Lock her up!Lock her up! chants that are Juvenile. Just where are they going to be sent back too ? All four are American Citizens! Most employers would send you to HR, and you would receive discipline, up to Termination of Employment for saying this to a person..-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you look at biographical websites that Carlos does, you will find Alexandria Ocasio Cortez listed as "white". Below are the facts about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.-------------------------------------- Ocasio-Cortez was born in The Bronx, New York City, on October 13, 1989 to Blanca Ocasio-Cortez (née Cortez) and Sergio Ocasio in a Catholic family She has a younger brother, Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez. Her father was born in the Bronx to a Puerto Rican family and became an architect; her mother was born in Puerto Rico. She has described her Puerto Rican community as an amalgamation: "We are black; we are indigenous; we are Spanish; we are European. Ocasio-Cortez lived with her family in an apartment in the Bronx neighborhood of Parkchester until age five, when the family moved to a house in suburban Yorktown Heights.--------------- "These women are entitled to their opinion but if you are going to call out the President for a non-racist tweet". You and Trumps base are the only ones that believe this.

Carlos Ponce

"chants that are Juvenile." They're having fun. Think of the number of times people yell, "KILL THE UMPIRE!" at a baseball game. They don't mean it. And the things chanted at local high school football and basketball games at the officials and the other team are said in jest despite the UIL disclaimer not to do so at the beginning of the game.

Jim Forsythe

You are saying they do not want the 4 Female House members to go back ? Try saying kill the umpire at a pro game. Was Trump having fun when he said it? Like I said, it is Juvenile. If you had said that to a student, I'm sure their parent's would have found it funny, just before they sued.----------------------------------------- EEOC's website says. "Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, 'Go back to where you came from,' whether made by supervisors or by co-workers."

Carlos Ponce

"You are saying they do not want the 4 Female House members to go back ?" No. A message to her constituents. Don't re-elect her. Send her from the House and send her packing back to her house.

Bailey Jones

'You are saying they do not want the 4 Female House members to go back ? " No Jim, Carlos is saying that there is nothing that Trump or his supporters can do that he will not defend. If Trump says it, it's true. If Trump does it, it's right. If his fellow supporters do it, it's OK. If you complain about it - well, you know what that mob will say...

Carlos Ponce

When Trump is Right, he's right. To the anti-Trumper suffering from TDS everything Trump says, does is wrong and impeachable. Trump tweeted: "That's grounds for impeachment!". Trump was diplomatic in his talks with Putin, Kim - "That's grounds for impeachment!" Trump meets with Prime Minister Abe to discuss diplomacy at his Golf course. "That's grounds for impeachment!" Tell me ANYTHING Trump has done that you think was "good". Some people cannot. Because their minds refuse to accept the concept.

Bailey Jones

"Tell me ANYTHING Trump has done..." Not a problem Carlos - 1) Pardoning Jack Johnson 2) Engaging with Lil Kim of NK. 3) Initiative on prison reform. 4) Bump stock ban. 5) Donating his salary. 6) He has a decent record of delivering on his campaign promises to his supporters. 7) The new Mexico trade deal that gives Mexican workers the right to unionize. 8) His plan to fight HIV/AIDS. 9) I agree with reducing regulations - but not at all with the people he's assigned the task to. 10) I appreciate his willingness to buck tradition and shake things up - I just wish he would use his powers for good, not evil. 11) I appreciate his utter and absolute personal transparency, but I'm horrified by what he shows us. 12) I appreciate what his presidency is doing for the descendants of James Buchanan. OK, your turn. 12 things you hate about Trump.

Carlos Ponce

This isn't a game, Bailey. I did not like it when Trump wanted to grant amnesty to those eligible for DACA but refused to register for DACA. Plenty of room for fraud in that procedure.

Bailey Jones

It's telling that the one thing you dislike about Trump is that he's too lenient on the children of undocumented immigrants.

Carlos Ponce

They were given time to register They did not. Time's up. They should not qualify.

Carlos Ponce

"Try saying kill the umpire at a pro game." Jim, saying "Kill the Umpire" was more common back in the last century. They even made a move called "Kill the Umpire" in 1950 starring William Bendix. It was never considered an actual threat. Just showing displeasure with the calls made by the officiating crew at a ball game. More "civil" is "Hey Ump! Wanna borrow my glasses?"

Jim Forsythe

"Send them back! Send them back"------------------------- Like I said, it is Juvenile. If you had said that to a student, I'm sure their parent's would have found it funny, just before they sued.----------------------------------------- Go to a Astros game and chant,"Kill the Umpire" and see what happens to you. We are no longer living in 1950, with a move telling us violence is the way to solve disputes.

Carlos Ponce

"If you had said that to a student, I'm sure their parent's would have found it funny, just before they sued." Said something similar to that to LM students who were told to either withdraw from their school and sign up at Hitchcock or be expelled for their actions. They complained how they preferred La Marque's schools. I would tell them, "There's the door. If you prefer La Marque, fine. See you later." I was never sued.

Jim Forsythe

Did you say, go back to the country of your origin to these young people? Most employers would send you to HR, and you would receive discipline, up to Termination of Employment for saying this to a person.EEOC's website says "Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, 'Go back to where you came from,' whether made by supervisors or by co-workers."------ Trump was telling the 4 Female House members to go back. For some reason you think that this is how a President is to act. You may not agree that the 4 Female House members have been elected and are representing the people that vote for them, and not you nor Trump.

Carlos Ponce

I told them "Get back to where you once belonged Get back, get back. Get back to where you once belonged. Go home.

Jim Forsythe

Did you say, go back to the country of your origin to these young people? If not, it is not the same as what Trump said!

Carlos Ponce

"Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"

Jim Forsythe

Did you say, go back to the country of your origin to these young people? If not, it is not the same as what Trump said! "Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came". And these places would be? One is from New York, the home of Donald John Trump.

Carlos Ponce

In the tweet he did not specify which Congresswoman he was referring to, nor the number of congresswomen.

Jim Forsythe

Of the 84 women in the House which one's is he talking about? If not any one in particular, then he is attacking all 84 Women. He is not attacking men, just Women. This is how you want a president to act? He has a long history of attacking women that have power. I guess this make's you happy that he is acting this way. If not , say so.

Carlos Ponce

"Did you say, go back to the country of your origin to these young people? If not, it is not the same as what Trump said!" These "young people" NEVER expressed the hated, bigotry, racism, anti Jewish, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and Anti American views like these four congresswomen have. So it is an INVALID comparison.

Jim Forsythe

Which four congresswomen are you talking about? The one's Trump tweeted about, which would be ? You are the one that first talked about the young people . You said ,"something similar to that to LM students" This is after I said "Send them back! Send them back"------------------------- Like I said, it is Juvenile. If you had said that to a student, I'm sure their parent's would have found it funny, just before they sued. This is when you said, " something similar to that to LM students" If you want to compare, then it is about what Trump said, "Send them back! Send them back","

Carlos Ponce

Again, you made an INVALID COMPARISON.

Jim Forsythe

Which four congresswomen are you talking about? The one's Trump tweeted about, which would be ?

Carlos Ponce

Your guess is as good as mine since he mentioned no names.

Jim Forsythe

So it worse than just 4 being attacked, it's now all 84 Congresswomen. This is from a man (Trump) that can not get along with Women in power.

Carlos Ponce

Unless Adrienne Bell changes her anti-petro-chemical and plastics stance the results will be the same. She'll lose. Her platform is a job killer for people in this Congressional District.

Bailey Jones

'SEND HER BACK!" "SEND HER BACK!" - this is who Trump supporters are. And Weber is one of them.

Carlos Ponce

Would you be happier with a chorus of "Return to Sender" or "Get Back"?

Bailey Jones

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv4207c9M74

Carlos Ponce

Sorry Bailey, that's not on the playlist.

Bailey Jones

lol... and then today, after inciting his followers to chant his new racist campaign slogan, he throws them under the bus at a press conference, claiming he didn't like it, and tried to stop it, even though the video proves this is just another lie. I wonder what his sycophants will chant today - "WE WERE WRONG! WE WERE WRONG!" I doubt that very much.

Carlos Ponce

"after inciting his followers to chant his new racist campaign slogan" Did you actually see the campaign rally? I doubt it. The chant started out in the audience and quickly spread when he mentioned the congresswoman's name. That's not "inciting". And it's not "racist".

Bailey Jones

Yes I saw it, Carlos. I actually investigate before I speak. You should give it a try.

Carlos Ponce

Did you watch it LIVE or snippets from a Liberal Network? If you did you would realize Trump started talking in the middle of the chanting to stop it.

Bailey Jones

"Did you watch it LIVE or snippets from a Liberal Network? If you did you would realize Trump started talking in the middle of the chanting to stop it." Simply not true, Carlos. I mean seriously - it's on the video. He stands there like a dork for about 10 seconds until the chant dies down, then resumes his screed. As always, I welcome any actually evidence you have to back up your nonsense.

Bailey Jones

Here, Carlos, I made you a timeline, because I'm helpful like that - T=0 Trump closes yap, chant has already begun. T=1 Chant grows louder, Trump with resting dork face T=2 Chant grows louder, Trump with resting dork face T=3 Chant grows louder, Trump with resting dork face T=4 Chant grows louder, Trump with resting dork face T=5 Chant grows louder, Trump with resting dork face T=6 Chant reaches peak volume, Trump with resting dork face T=7 Chant drops in volume, Trump with resting dork face T=8 Chant drops in volume, Trump with resting dork face T=9 Chant drops in volume, Trump with resting dork face T=10 Chant drops in volume, Trump with resting dork face T=11 Chant stops except for a few stragglers, Trump with resting dork face T=12 Chant stops, Trump with resting dork face T=13 Trump resumes yapping

Carlos Ponce

"Yap"? "Dork"? It took a few seconds to figure out what the people were chanting. Then he had to decide whether it would die out on its own. They do have a Constitutional Freedom of Speech. When it seemed it would not die out on its own that's when he continued his speech louder than the chant.

Bailey Jones

Carlos, you do realize that repeating a lie only weakens your argument, right? There was no doubt what they were chanting - they had chanted the exact same thing a few seconds earlier (you did watch the event live, right?) Trump is one of the densest people I know of, but even he is capable of recognizing human speech. He basked in the glory of the mob's hatred for 10 seconds (as long as he's ever been able to not be the center of attention). It was only after the whole nation (minus his 30%) erupted in disgust that he walked it back. This is all obvious. But Master calls, I know you must obey.

Carlos Ponce

Bailey, you weren't there. With the chant echoing through the venue it took seconds for Trump to hear what was going on.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos how was your trip back from the campaign rally? Other wise, you only have the same source that Baily does. It's on film of Trump soaking in the chanting. This was after his Daughter in law primed the crowd, before the event started.

Carlos Ponce

Jim I heard from Donald Trump and several who were there on news programs. That's how I know.

Jim Forsythe

Unless you where called by Donald Trump, you know no more than anyone else.

Diane Turski

Clearly Weber doesn't know or care what "dignity" means since he supports the most undignified person to ever occupy the White House! What a joke that anyone takes Weber's opinion seriously. Vote Weber OUT!!!

Carlos Ponce

He'll be back.

Dan Freeman

If it was not sad, it would be funny to watch the Republican clown car filled with sheets and torches.

Bailey Jones

Coming soon to a convention center near you!

Carlos Ponce

There's no Republican clown car, Dan. Perhaps you are thinking of Hillary's "Scooby Van".

Carlos Ponce

"filled with sheets and torches" Who had the "sheets and torches"? KKK members who were predominantly DEMOCRAT. Noted KKK members: Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV), Chief Justice and former Senator Edward Douglass White (D-LA), Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black An Alabama Democrat, Governor Theodore G. Bilbo (D-MS), Senator John Brown Gordon (D-GA), Senator Joseph E. Brown (D-GA), from Tennessee Federal Judge Elmer David Davies -Democrat, Republican Governor Edward L. Jackson. Plenty more Ds than Rs.

Bailey Jones

Republicans to Central Americans - "Sorry if you aren't happy in your country, but you should stay there." Republicans to Americans - "If you're not happy here go live in some other country." Oblivious to the irony.

Carlos Ponce

Bad analogy, Bailey. But I guess you're happy with those who make anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish, anti- Israel comments. You must be happy when they compare Israel to NAZI Germany. You must be happy when they think everyone who is "brown", "black", "queer", or Muslim must be of a single mindset. "Republicans to Americans" - Not ALL Americans, Bailey. Just those who would hide behind their office as a member of the House to make bigoted, prejudiced, hateful remarks. Do you like or do you renounce what the four "Congresswomen" are saying? Since you saw Trump's rally you know that he called them out for their hateful, bigoted, racist statements. But it appears Bailey has no problem with them.....[rolleyes]

Bailey Jones

Young radicals don't bother me, Carlos. even if I disagree with them (although Trump's claims about the Squad are based on right wing memes, not reality). None of this would be an issue if Trump had told Andrew Anglin to go back to where he came from after he incited terror against Jews in Montana. Or John T. Earnest or Robert Gregory Bowers after they shot up Jewish places of worship. But he didn't. Those guys are all white. None of this would be an issue if Trump had told David Duke, or the white nationalists at Charlottesville, or the murderer among them, or any other single racist in America, to go back where they came from. But he didn't. They are all white. I could even buy Lindsey Graham's hastily contrived defense that the problem was that they are socialists - if Trump had ever told our pre-eminent socialist, Bernie, to go back where he came from. But he didn't. Bernie is white. Your defense of Trump is sad and tedious. I think I'm done with you for today. (Now's your chance to slip in another indefensible BS claim!)

Carlos Ponce

Soooooo.... Anti-Jewish, anti Israel, anti-Semitic, racist, bigoted, hate filled comments don't bother Bailey Jones if they come from one of these four Congresswomen.

Bailey Jones

Well done!

Bailey Jones

In the 1850s there rose in this country a political party called the Native American Party, aka the American Party, aka the Know Nothing Party. It was xenophobic, and anti-immigrant - the bugaboo of the day being Irish and German Catholics. In 1855, Abraham Lincoln wrote a letter to his best friend, Joshua Speed - "I am not a Know-Nothing. That is certain. How could I be? How can any one who abhors the oppression of Negroes, be in favor of degrading classes of white people? Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we begin by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except Negroes." When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except Negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty - to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy." I guess Lincoln should have just gone back where he came from. Just as we survived the Know Nothings of the 1850s, I'm confident we will survive the know nothing presidency of Donald Trump.

Carlos Ponce

Under Trump - Black unemployment down to record levels. Hispanic unemployment down, Women unemployed down, etc. "Know nothing" is an appropriate title for your post, Bailey.

Bailey Jones

Trump has spent the past few days retweeting one of his biggest supporters, Katie Hopkins, someone who calls migrants "cockroaches", blacks "jigaboos", and has called for a "final solution" to the Muslim "problem". But, hey - look at that stock market! Go, Carlos, Go! It's entertaining watching you and the rest of the Republican Party defend this guy.

Carlos Ponce

Never heard of her. But I have heard of Mary Hopkins. Any kinship?

Jim Forsythe

You may not. but Trump knows her. Trump retweeted several of Katie Hopkins tweets and videos. She was a contestant in the third series of The Apprentice in 2007. --------------------------------------------------------- LBC announced Hopkins's departure on 26 May 2017, 'effective immediately', following her comments on Twitter soon after the Manchester Arena bombing, in which Hopkins claimed "we need a final solution".----------------------------------------------------------------- After five Londoners drowned at Camber Sands in August 2016, Hopkins tweeted a poll mocking the identities of the deceased-----

Carlos Ponce

Annnnd..... You consider this important? He retweeted the following: "Trump in the White House Boris in Number 10 Netanyahu building Israel Bolsanaro, Salvini, Orban, Kaczyński, & the Right Minded bringing strength in depth What a time to be alive The fightback by proud nations is on" Is there a tweet law that says "IF YOU RETWEET THAT MEANS YOU AGREE 100% WITH EVERYTHING THAT PERSON HAS SAID OR TWEETED IN THE PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE?" No. Only an idiot would think so.COMMON SENSE tells us a person who retweets only agrees with what the original sender wrote in that specific tweet. Sheesh! Gee... I copy and paste in this forum from other forum posters. Does that mean I agree with everything Bailey, Jim, Emile, Dan, etc says or writes? NO!

Jim Forsythe

It's one thing to retweet a tweet from a person on this forum, by a person that does not make decisions that could end in a bad outcome for the USA. Its another thing when it comes from a President who places tweets and retweets into record for all-time, that could end in a bad outcome for the USA .---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Which is it, "Never heard of her" or here is what she said? If a President is going to retweet something, they must know about the person that wrote the original. They are representing the USA, and any retweeting of a bad persons tweets, gives validation to that person. When a President puts out official information in any form, such as a tweet, they better know about the person that wrote it. Being associated with the wrong person, can have a bad outcome for the USA. Trumps tweets are a reflection of what we stand for, and whom we consider as partners in what we stand for. I hope we do not stand for what Katie Hopkins does, but with Trump holding her up by his retweets, he validates her.

Carlos Ponce

"Which is it, "Never heard of her" or here is what she said?" Depends on the timeline. When first mentioned, I never heard of her. When Left wingers continued making a big deal out of a simple retweet I looked up what remarks were retweeted. Tweeting is the modern way of quickly communicating to the American people, the modern day "fireside chat". If you don't like it, don't read them. Problem solved.

Jim Forsythe

Riding on Obama's coattails, Trump has inherited a unemployment rate that has continued on about the same amount of decrease. It's very doubtful that he will leave office with the same percent of decrease as Obama had. Obama's rate went from 10% to 5% which would mean that Trump, if he has 8 years, would have to reach 2.5% to equal what Obama did.

Carlos Ponce

"Riding on Obama's coattails...." Obama created a stagnant economy. It was Trump REMOVING much of what Obama did that got the economy humming.

Jim Forsythe

What have Trumps tariffs done except raise cost, and reduced the markets for are crops, such as soybeans. The estimated cost to the average family because of the tariffs is $800 . Also the companies that he said would leave China, have started to do so, but not to the USA.. He has us out of treaties before anything new in place. Now Iran may become our next long term no win event. North Korea is just waiting to see what will happen in Iran. Our relationships with other allies has deteriorated to the point that they may not be so happy to give us a hand if something breaks out.------------------------------------------------------------------------------ But Trump didn’t fix the economy that Obama didn’t break. For starters, the Great Recession and financial crisis began under Bush II not Obama, a fact that some Republicans seem to forget. (Even stranger, there are those on the right who actually blame Obama for the downturn that began before he took office.) More importantly, there’s good reason to think the historically slow recovery is about what one should have expected given that the downturn also involved a housing collapse and a severe financial shock. “Post-financial crisis recoveries tend to be slow and be accompanied by slowdowns in [productivity growth] and permanent losses in GDP,” notes a recent paper from the Dallas Federal Reserve that surveyed the economic literature on the subject. Then came Trump, promising “I alone can fix” an economy that had already been growing for seven and a half years and generated more than two million new jobs a year. But it’s not clear what he’s done to make the economy better — although politicians should always get some credit for not screwing up a good thing. While there were smart reasons to cut business taxes, it has yet to result in a whole lot more business investment, as was promised. (Maybe blame the Trump trade wars for this.) And while economic growth has sped up over the past four quarters, there were also spurts of fast growth under Obama that then faded.Expansions don’t die of old age. Australia’s has been running for nearly three decades. America’s might well have further to go. Yet if the US economy is still broken in any way, it’s in that lack of productivity growth. The problem began before Obama and so far continues today through the Age of MAGA. And it’s not clear that public policy caused it or can fix it. Maybe much of humanity’s game-changing innovation has already happened. Or maybe it’s just that finding breakthrough ideas has gotten a lot harder. Either way, having more smart people with greater resources at their disposal might help, which is why America should bring-in more high-skilled immigrants and invest more in science. Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether America’s Fix-It president has much interest in doing either.

Carlos Ponce

"What have Trumps tariffs done..." Stay tuned, Jim. There is an old Earth saying, " You have to break eggs to make an omelet".

Jim Forsythe

How long should we stand by? We do not have years to see if tariffs work in forcing someone else to do what Trump wants. The tax (tariffs) have done nothing unless you count soybean farmers taking a bath and loosing long time buyers forever. This is echoed in other sectors.----------------------------------- Rand Paul advised the president to finalize a deal with China soon, “because the longer we’re involved in a tariff battle or a trade war, the better chance there is that we could actually enter into a recession because of it”.---------------------------- “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Smoot-Hawley began small and snowballed. Initially the idea was to increase tariffs to protect U.S. farmers. But, it mutated into the snowball from hell. As it moved through congress the political game became “if you support my tariff, I’ll support yours” until 890 tariffs were raised. The stupidly was obvious. A petition signed by 1,028 economists demanded a veto by President Herbert Hoover. Thomas Lamont, the most influential banker of his day, famously said he “almost went down on my knees to beg Herbert Hoover to veto the asinine Hawley-Smoot Tariff.” It didn’t work and a trade war followed. Canada was a leader. Prime Minister Mackenzie King raised tariffs on products that composed 30 per cent of U.S. exports to Canada. Opposition Leader R.B. Bennett demanded more, won the 1930 election, boosted tariffs, and Canada sunk into the Depression. Most economists believe the result was disastrous. World trade fell by 66 per cent from 1929 to 1934; U.S. exports and imports to and from Europe each also fell by about two-thirds. The causes were varied but one influential study, though it examines trade only through to 1932, estimates that the Smoot-Hawley inspired trade war caused half the decline.

Carlos Ponce

"How long should we stand by?" Gee you're impatient. Old Earth saying: "Rome wasn't built in a day." You sound like Veruca Salt. "Give it to me NOW! No, now!"

Carlos Ponce

Remember that Jim Forsythe said chants are juvenile. I'll remember that next time I hear, "Hey, hey! Ho, Ho! (fill in the blank) has got to go!", "No justice, no peace!" "We're fired up, can't take it no more!" or does Jim find chants from the left "acceptable"? [unsure]

Jim Forsythe

Chants such as kill the umpire are calling for violence. Send them back is against the law, if done in the work place. Chants that call for violence or are against the law, are not acceptable . Lock her up was different than if they had said string her up. Most chants are juvenile and are mostly done by juveniles. After the call for the 4 Congresswomen to go back home, they have had Multiple death threat's. The world is watching this play out and we are losing in the eyes of the world. This is ok if we want to become isolated form the rest of the world. I do not, do you?
