Politics has become more warlike with the rage of the recalcitrant left.
Last night, the Jack Bergman town hall in Traverse City ended immediately following the shout from an audience member of “grab em by the pussy!”
The event, which lasted about an hour and a half revealed much of what can be expected by the left in the political arena. Accusations of “you’re trying to kill me,” and catcalls continually polluting what could have been a reasonable Q & A of the first congressional district’s representative.
The organized ‘resistance’ group ‘Indivisible’ predictably bared their cute colored signs as well as verbal excrement, and made it a point to indicate right at the start of the night, that the left has lost it’s collective mind. Donning the pink pussy hats, they expressed their vulgar social skills as best they could.
During the invocation, the very same people who decry the President’s ‘boorishness,’ had the audacity to stand and recite the pledge of allegiance. During the pledge of allegiance they surprisingly stood, but many remained silent.
General Jack reliably remained in control of the conversation, and was aided slightly by the ‘moderator’ Cherry queen, who was unable get by-and-large respectful adherence to the forum rules. The torch bearing villagers of the left were solidly focused on expressing their disdain of the monster before them, and most certainly the ‘monster’ who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue.
Bergman may well have received the first lesson of how catering to the left is not very rewarding. While some of the members of the audience with their comments at the microphone made clear their ‘appreciation’ for his participation in a climate change dialogue with local students, they only used it as a launching point for a cataloguing of sins which he must also repudiate.
The behavior of those who appeared to champion the ACA, Line 5 removal, global warming remediation and the termination of the Trump presidency, was less than civil. At the same time, feigned shock and indigence at several of the General’s blunt responses or lack of acceptable answers had many nearly explosive.
These are not people who have any adult reasoning ability left. They have been over-sensitized, have little ability to handle discussion maturely, and want their damned cookie now!
And amazingly, these same tantrum tossing victims of every Republican everywhere cannot fathom why there are not more town hall gatherings.
Yeah, this nonsense is all byproduct of Conservatism, Inc. within the establishment swamp mollycoddling The Left's bullshit for decades. The old broad in the pussy hat is living proof that Progressivism is a mental disorder and that feminism is cancer. It's how/why Trump happened and, thank God he chose to run for President. Best vote I've cast of my life!
Even though he's delivered on exactly zero of his promises, just like us Never Trump conservatives predicted? We are now stuck with the worst of both worlds -- an incompetent and corrupt president who has unleashed the looniest of the left. Great vote.
Glad you are miserable. The Yin Yang thing demands balance!
Kinda hard to do that when you have a Congress controlled by RINO's who spend more time and effort explaining why legislation isn't going through, rather than actually doing it.
That legislation had already been written. It just needed to get brought back during this session for a vote.
That could've easily been dealt with while the DREAMers were being dealt with (i.e. told to get out and go to the back of the line where others are already waiting).
2018 will be a terrible year for establishment RINO's in Congress!
Oh but the main street media made it sound oh so civil 9/10 that is ! Thanks for an honest report as to what occurred . Sad result of this is many of us are unable to attend because of this very behavior , as it almost makes us physically ill !
All I got for you is that "I am also a woman" and so relieved I got that outta the way at the get-go.
As the graphic over here on the left indicates, Donald Trump's unexpected electoral win forced the long-simmering national culture war out into the open. The progressives, anarchists, liberals, et. al., appear to have never developed the necessary emotional and cognitive coping mechanisms to deal with actually losing. Thus, what we have here is the logical end result of awarding participation trophies and doing away with academic grading systems.
Oh, yes, it's out in the open for sure. It's not just the 'Progressives/anarchists/liberals/et. al.' you focus on, it is also the same within Conservatism, Inc., which is worse than is being taken on with what you poke your finger at. 8 years ain't going to break it. 16 with Pence... maybe. Been a long time since Reagan has been gone. Glad I never voted for a Bush. Both were/are total shit. Why you saw McCain and Romney.
I thank God for Trump.
Kevin--There were about 30 high school students there and a couple of their teachers. I asked a couple of them how they liked it. They did. To me it was torture listening to what was suppose to be questions but really ramblings of town idiots. General Jack had to ask several times what their question was (as he did me). I responded, I have no question but merely requesting a no vote on the two issues presented. There's a vote this week on a bill which has buried in it to effectively dissolve the Family Education Privacy and Rights Act (FEPRA). Having those students there made this even more so important. There's a bill pending, which Jack has signed onto, the Anti-Boycott Israel act. ABI has been on the books since 2015 and was in response to the UN sanctioning Israel. So, in knee-jerk response a law was enacted to make it illegal to boycott Israel. The new bill, also continues to chill 1st amendment rights--includes severe criminal and civil sanctions if you choose to boycott Israel. We should not be placing any laws on our books with regard to the UN other than to pull 100% of our funding. A truly slippery slope going on here. A little research showed that the law was written by Israeli lobbyists and the worst part--in January of this year, Snyder signed this into law.
Are we talking about the same Israel that was directly responsible for the unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty?
The one that they tried to sweep under the rug and eradicate from the history books?
Shut it down! Shut it down! The goyim know too much.
Yes KG--but substitute any other country--Canada for example. If it keeps on going, I envision there'll be laws for every country participating in the UN. The UN is not merely creeping into our society--words like "freeholder" in place of citizen, taxpayer, voter; concepts like "development ready" as an excuse to put in sidewalks where not wanted--all these catch phrases from the Agenda 21 playbook--all funded by US. And why are states participating--It was signed into law by Snyder in January of this year--has he not heard of the Tenth Amendment? And why are we allowing into law laws crafted by foreign lobbyists? It just reeks of crap. BTW, sanctions in the law are Criminal: $1 million plus 20 years; civil: $250K for first offense. So then, If I choose to purchase California Pistachios instead of Israeli imported pistachios--have I boycotted Israel? Should I watch over my shoulder for the Feds? Another BTW--this showed up in a Harvey Relief contract in Texas--in order to accept FEMA funds you cannot boycott Israel during the term of the FEMA contract. But once the contract is satisfied, I guess you can continue to boycott Israel.

"Get Khomeini by the nuts, boycott Iranian pistachios!" - Popular 1979 - 1980 bumper sticker
D'oh! B'nei yisrael exploit our 241% tariff on Iranian pistachios?
CS not a goyim--you a goy? And your post is exactly why I used the pistachio analogy. Suppose that dates us both.
Those pussy hats (don't even work as ear muffs) with all the "revelations" (we knew but now confirmed) take on new meaning. Hillary and Podesta were making ALL the decisions for their DIM followers making those pussy hats their idea. They created the fake newsers and did such a good job at this that the fake newsers are too afraid to start unfaking the news. So the DIM followers can't move forward--can't process all the DIM sexual predators ( Clinton's, Weinstein, etc). The DIM's are doing their hardest to distance themselves from Clinton's and thought they had it with the Weinstein crap. But, it backfired and now all we hear about is more DIM predators. There's a DIM Senator on trial for Billions in fraud (a financial predator) went on for years and would have continued if the DIM's won and never has a federal trial dragged on as long as this one has--a strategy to deny MAGA moving forward. Now I believe fake news on Roy Moore (timing is everything, No?)in attempts to balance an algebraic equation (core curriculum math???); and advertisers pulling from FOX news for pointing out the timing causing conservatives to boycott the advertisers. Maybe they should be talking with Papa John's an advertiser of the NFL on how conservative boycotts work. Meanwhile our fearless leader stands before the world and states past administrations are to blame--translated that means that Clinton gave China access to ALL OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY free of charge, nothing in return. I say let Hillary keep making decisions for the DIM's--the Roy Moore issue smacks of strategy thunked up by Hillary after all it worked on our MAGA leader--NOT!. As for Roy Moore--keep in mind Alabama was a Ron Paul state--they love the 10 commandants in their courthouses, and love Roy Moore for standing against gay unions. Will probably have to wait for the next book to learn what foreign agent was paid to come up with this dossier. As for the pussy hats. . .
