It might just be an interaction between denim and their gold paint.

Manifestly those people know absolutely nothing about civil rights *or* liberties, or they would never offer that opinion. Except ironically.

But clearly the first thing they are, in the Marxian manner, ignorant of is that to be a "destroyer of civil rights" you must first destroy gun rights. And what is the Trump Administration's attitude towards the Second Amendment?

No true tyrant can afford a Second Amendment.

Nah. You guys have the right to guns. The government has drones, tanks and a massive standing army. Unless the populace tools up to the extent it can match the firepower of the state it's not going to protect you from a dictator

DanaC, that is precisely what the anti-rights drones all say -- and exhibit a sharp ignorance of unconventional warfare so they can remain secure in their dismissal of human rights and how they are gotten and kept. What is an intelligent person like you doing listening to anti-rights drones?

I'm just a tad more committed to human rights than the drones are.

No true tyrant can afford a Second Amendment, because he'll die young. Then hoi polloi, mad at all his supporters, restructure the political order so no subsequent tyrant emerges.

We managed the second part of that in the 1780's. We've been successful since, and the last four years do not constitute any failure.

Speaking of Trump statues, what do you all think of Trump's paraliptical expressions of his desire to have his likeness added to the heroic figures already carved into Mount Rushmore?

Listen to UG, he knows what's on Trump's mind and Trump's methods because UG is just like Trump.

There is one difference. Trump calls every woman "nasty". It is a favorite word.
