D.C. anti-Trump rioters hide behind bogus free speech claims

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 01:26:29 +0000

(Paul Mirengoff) The Washington Post reports on the trial of six defendants who are charged with what the Post calls the “fiery, glass-shattering civil disturbance on President Trump’s Inauguration Day.” (“Fiery” as in setting fires). The trial began today. The Post story was written after jury selection but before the opening statements and the presentation of evidence. The defendants face felony charges of inciting a riot and destruction of property. Each offense

Save BIG on your favorite Dem gear

Now I know. I know that Al Franken was grabbing women’s butts because of his response to Lindsay Menz’s allegation that he grabbed hers. Franken said: I take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of
