    Is that why it's been a top story on national news, print and broadcast?

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    So you consider yourself a pretty representative sample of "the rest of the country?" If you're correct, Trump is likewise correct to assume he's going to be re-elected in a landslide.

    Why don't you stop calling yourself white?

    It's not your heritage. But you don't wanna have that discussion.

    There’s a difference between the media smearing divisive shit in our faces and us taking it seriously.

    All scenarios lead back to Trump. The leftist mind is an interesting flow chart.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't realize who "us" is. I presume it doesn't include me.

    That wasn't an anti-Trump post, or a post about Trump at all, but you have a poor record of understanding what you're reading.

    And you didn't answer my question, but your eyes probably locked on to "Trump" instantly--and you accuse me (and "leftists") of being Trump-focused. Irony.

    Lol. Literally one of the top news stories across the country. Have friends and family texting about WTF is going on in Portland. People are taking it very seriously. At least by people who find it alarming that the feds are in the city throwing people in vans

    I’ve gotten texts from all over too. From the South, California, freaking Germany. People are noticing around the GLOBE. Thank the lord for the video capabilities of cell phones, and thank the lord this isn’t government overreach...

    Oh jeezus I was speaking generally. I wasn’t trying to oppress or exclude whatever groups you may be a part of, I don’t know anything about you.

    You arbitrarily brought up Trump in an unrelated discussion, literally, two responses ago. It’s interesting the way you just tried to flip that around on me though. Bold move, haven’t seen that one yet.

    There is a difference between watching dipshits fuck shit up on the news and embarrass an entire city, and actually taking their ambiguous, incoherent message seriously.

    I brought up Trump as a joke about your weird contention that you're a representative sample for the "rest of the nation." i.e. If you were actually a representative sample, Trump would win in a landslide. But, as I said, you've shown a history of not understanding the posts you're responding to.

    I don’t know. Have you tried using more question marks?
