I worked as a physician to provide health care for the protestors in 1968! I am staying away this time

Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker also defended Sigcho-Lopez on free speech grounds, saying he doesn’t agree with his behavior, but he “will defend to the death his right to say those things.”

J.B. Pritzker is about one Big Mac away from a heart attack. So, perhaps he will get the chance to prove this.

Get the popcorn ready. 1968 will look like a tea party compared to what will happen now!

Spielberg will make sure the DNC in Chicago will be a spectacular event...but it won't actually be in Chicago...Joe has a better chance of remembering where his Corvette keys are than finding the Convention Center in Chicago...let the left do all their planning for the event and then hold it remotely in Rehoboth Beach, where Joe keeps all the classified evidence of his career...

I can’t think of a better city to have this in. It definitely will be a get-your-popcorn event.

Columbia negotiating with children. No wonder our universities are broken. Send Khalil home so he can protest from his democratic homeland.

The best kind of idiot is a useful idiot. Death to the country where you have the right to shout death to the country!

Don’t these people have jobs or classes to go to?? Papers to write? Parents or elderly grandparents to tend to? Volunteer obligations? They are having so much fun. How much time do they spend entertaining one another creating new slogans?? There’s a new one every day and they are ever more vile with ever more creative rhymes and cadences. (In my day, we only had 1 2 3 4, we don’t want your effing war). It’s sickening. They are the Lord of the Flies. They are feral children. There are NO adults in the house. And it’s dangerously escalating.

I’ve been thinking about my six grandchildren and how they are required to behave in my home (of course, I occasionally indulge them). I’m thinking grandmothers could do a better job of clearing out those protest camps than anyone in charge right now. Anyone want to help me form a “Million Grandma March” and go take care of this?

I wonder if these groups and their supporters will be pursued by the FBI and sued into the poor house like the J6 and C'ville protesters? I'm not holding my breath.

Why does anyone planning to protest in Chicago (and presently) think chanting “Death to America “ in any language is beneficial to a cause? Any cause on US soil?

It is feeling like 1968 all over again, and we know how the riot at the DNC then worked out for the Democrats. Nixon won in a landslide and while I don't think it will be the same for Trump, Ritchie Torres is right in saying that these Far Left crazies will work in the Republicans' favor.

The progressive left are a fifth column; an enemy within. We underestimate their treachery at our peril.

lol. This was so fun to read, and I loved, “also, I joined the NFL.” 🤣

I loved it all, but for some reasons that one had me rolling. Sneaky girl.
