Take a long look at the photograph and pray for this country.

I pray for this country because we have a major politcal party shutting down our government on behalf of illegals.

I pray for this country because that same party colluded with the media to rig a presidential debate.

I pray for this country because representatives of that party were caught talking about sending operatives to their opponent's speeches to perpetrate violence.

I pray for this country because a crazed member of that party shot the majority whip and four others.

I pray for this country because the pro-illegal, anti-law rhetoric of that party convinced an illegal to try an assassination attempt.

I pray for this country because members of that party routinely dress in black and commit violence in the streets.

I pray for this country because members of that party working for the media have tried to overturn the results of an election with a bogus story about a "collusion" that no one can define.

I pray for this country because rouge members of that party working for the FBI openly talked about overturning an election. One of those agents was the lead investigator on the phony collusion story.

Want to guess which party I am taking about?

Finally, I pray for this country because people like yourself are totally brainwashed, and do not understand who the bad guys are, probably because your communist professor or favorite celebrity told you what to think.

If you have an issue with that, please petition the government to mass-arrest Antifa. They don't just stick their hands in front of cameras. They bat them out of people's hands and beat the ever living feces out of journalists who have the audacity to film them. Journalists of all stripes know that if they're covering an event where Antifa shows up, they are only safe if they stay in the area of Antifa's opposition. The crazies on the Left have a lot more anti-First Amendment issues than those on the right. Hell, they even call the words "Freedom of Speech" a dog whistle to the Alt-Right. How insane is that?

Really? Is this ALL you have.

Whee is the "in depth" coverage from the LSM about the crowd, and what Trump ACTUALLY said?

No, they would rather IGNORE ALL the good things he said and waste time on blocking some insignificant camera.

Then people like you wonder why we criticize people like you AND the LSM!

I don't want anyone, whether it's an Antifa protester or a staff member for the President of the United States, sticking their hands in front of a press photographer.

No more than we're not free to block firearms ownership. Both are Constitutional amendments or did you not read the thread title?

To me it indicated Mr. Hands was working under the direction and for the benefit of President's event. (i.e. not some schmo showing up at the door to attend)

BTW - Having been a volunteer for any number of organizations I can clearly tell you the lack of monetary compensation and having volunteer status doesn't make you any less responsible for your actions as a representative of the organization.
