And as a result Democrats canceled events in Central Texas. They were armed, dangerously provoking the bus and threatened them.

thug leader trump.
its around 35% of america who will/would do this.
that's his real base. the rest are just very very old or just plain ignorant.
america's near term destiny - over the next 10 years or so - is going to be ugly.

once the D take control of the State Legislature, which seems likely this election (regardless how the Presidential election goes) we will see armed militias roaming throughout texas.

Here is a link to an NYT piece about the Trump group's attempt to force the Biden-Harris campaign bus off the road in Texas. Local law enforcement helped the bus get to where it was going, although the planned events were then cancelled... and it wasn't clear whether law enforcement would bring charges against Trump supporters involved in the highway activity.


Katie Naranjo, chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, tweeted that Trump supporters also “ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats.” The bus was occupied by campaign staff workers, who notified local law enforcement, which assisted the vehicle in reaching its destination, party officials said.

Out of “an abundance of caution,” they said, the campaign canceled an event scheduled for later that day at a parking lot belonging to the Texas A.F.L.-C.I.O. in downtown Austin. A campaign event in suburban Pflugerville was also scrapped.

I've not heard about stuff quite like this happening in previous US presidential campaigns. Seems like a new level of not just threat but actual violence meant as intimidation of Americans exercising First Amendment freedoms. I'm still shockable...

It is a new level, and it makes me fuming mad. Are we going to need a fucking brigade of Highway Patrol cars now to escort these buses everywhere? 🤬

So media...what’s the other part of the story? Did the cops break this up? Was anybody arrested?

Edit: LA Times says
A police escort ultimately guided the bus to its destination.
Not good enough. Not nearly good enough.

Those Trumpers were waiting in ambush. You can bet if Biden people did this to Trump, Homeland Security would be involved and people would be in very serious trouble. These punks are gonna just walk.

@ericgtr12 i think it would be good to look at the phraseology you have used for this thread's title.

radicalized trump supporters

the term "radicalized n" is hard to think of any context other than to refer to "radicalized muslims".

in the instance of muslims who commit bombings, terror attacks etc, the usage of radcialized posits that most muslims would not engage in such act, and that most muslims would not approve of such acts.
it sets up a category of non-radicalised muslims as being "OK".
i agree with this distinction.

in the case of "radicailzied trump supporters" however, by using this phraseology it sets up that there are trump supporters who don't commit a traffic crime as still ok.
it sets up a category of non-radicalised trump supporters as being "OK".

are so-called non-radicalicaed supporters OK if they merely:
ipso facto approve of an admin that separates babies in arms from their mothers
has america on a trajectory of ridiculously misguided herd immunity to covid
support the most corrupt admin in america's long history
etc
etc
etc

by using the word radical to refer these people simply caught in the act of breaking laws and intimidating the risk is run that we are tacitly saying that just being a trumo supporter alone by itself is normal.
i think it can almost be proven that being a trump supporter can not be seen as normal.

in the 1920's and 1930's were KKK members who participated in lynching worse than KKK members who merely supported the KKK?

Whether all Trump supporters can be considered radicalized, I don't know. Some of them (like one of my neighbors) are poor saps who just buy all that right wing fear mongering about "socialism". They are actually more afraid of that than they are of a mentally unbalanced out of control would-be dictator. Don't ask me to explain that, I can't.

Back to Trump's literal road warriors. I have come to the conclusion that there is no other solution: if we are fortunate enough to reclaim the White House, we're going to have to start classifying shit like this as domestic terrorism. This just gets worse and worse and worse, and unless we start taking these people off the streets, it's going to go on. I'm well aware that even if we start jailing people for this, it'll bring others out of the woodwork. Yes, it'll get worse before it gets better. But you've gotta start somewhere.

You want to talk about law and order? The government has to follow the same law we do, and we have to have fair, unfettered and non-threatening elections. Biden had the idea right, just the wrong targets. We don't need our prisons to be filled with marijuana users, we need them to be filled with law breakers like self-dealing politicians and their gun-toting, bus-chasing followers.

When asked to comment on the incident, the chairman of the Texas GOP had this to say:
Three Trump supporters have been executed, one in Portland, one in Denver, and one Milwaukee. A leftist mob attempted to storm the house of the McCloskeys, threatened to burn their house down, rape Mrs. McCloskey, and then kill them both.

Where is the liberal corporate media’s concern about that real violence? Additionally, none of what your question implies is accurate. It is more fake news and propaganda.

Prepare to lose…stop bothering me. Maybe Soros can cut y’all another check in 2022.

great find. thanks @Yoused

in hearing this comment about someone wanting to commit felony rape against this long gun totin' lady in the ostentatious stone clad mansion everyone should remember what trump replied about the woman he raped in a department store
"she wasn't his type (so therefore it couldn't have happened)."
its one of the most offensive comments i have heard anybody say in my entire lifetime, and from the President.
and he is having Field Kommandant Barr defend him in Federal court about this.

never heard or saw the Chairman of the Texas R party. but he's obviously a Trumpublican™️.

more and more i have a feeling that things usually boil down to sexual behaviour with these people.

Yeah, there was a thing about that. He accused Ms Carroll of lying about the incident, so she sued him for defamation. The DoJ argued that in denying the accusation, ShitGibbon was in the act of carrying out his official duties as a government employee and was thus protected by law. The judge said no, what a load of BS.

Deep in the heart of Texas!
I'm here because MacRumors banned me for 3 days lol

These people are dangerous.

I saw a twitter feed that posted a timeline of the events, from the time they planned it on facebook to the videos they were uploading to social media showing them chasing the bus. Apparently one of the guys that sideswiped the vehicle and damaged it caters free BBQ to the police so that they give him "leverage" He is even bragging about it on social media. He recently got a DWI and served no time and had $0 in fees because of his relationship with the local police force. Trump has radicalized these people. There is so much evidence on social media because these idiots were posting about it on public accounts.

I'm glad the FBI is involved now. These people need to be held accountable for their actions.

It Trump loses I can only imagine what these people are going to do. Its gonna get ugly.

Welcome, and do, please, make yourself at home.

I noticed your suspension (along with a few others) when I paid a fleeting visit to MR earlier today.
