We should coddle our enemies...

Post by Nightshade » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:49 pm

...said nobody sane EVER...



As seemingly ham handed and inarticulate Trump has been in the recent past, he has done what Obama could never do...and that is to call out our enemies for who and what they are....ENEMIES.

So does Shapiro tap you on the head when he's about to finish?

Hmmm. Since Shapiro lives in L.A., he's well within range of NK's missiles. So if he's proud to call out America's enemies like a strutting banty rooster, he must not care about the target he's painting on his ass. Maybe he'll piss off crazy Kim Jong Un just enough to end up on the receiving end of one of Un's little nukes, putting the rest of us out of the misery of having to hear his constant puffed up prattle from NS, not that I wish destruction on the rest of L.A.'s residents. But sometimes, collateral damage during any cleansing is unavoidable. :P

I have relatives that live in L.A., so instead of nuking the place why don't I just have them kidnap Shapiro and ship him off to North Korea, that way there is no collateral damage.

Yeah, I like L.A. and besides, my sister lives near the area as well. So I thought of a better way. :P



EDIT: I also found this. It's very informative to understand why NK hates the U.S. Perhaps that's a better place to start for forging a lasting peace than just calling for war or bombing each other.

Didn't you hear slick? Trump is taking credit for NK opening a dialog with SK with all this talk of my button is bigger than your button. :P

except that was planned over a month ago, and has been coordinated at some level since the Olympics started to loom on the horizon. But, facts......

obvious counterpoint to Shapiro's viewpoint, graphically expressed:

To be fair, it does take a dedicated commie to know that the best way to sway your people is to create good agiprop. :P All Trump knows how to do is brag before he manages to engage his pea brain, even when it's a no-win situation for either leader and both of them are megalomaniacs.
