The loudmouth with the cane then keeps claiming the guy in the BLM T-shirt pushed her and that he was a retired cop. If that's the way he behaves, then it's a damn good thing he's no longer a cop. From what I saw, I'd bet the woman was the aggressor.

Have you learned nothing from Trump? NEVER, EVER admit you are wrong. You were correct: the Dems photoshopped the video making it look like MTG instead of Boebert in their ongoing campaign to destroy our freedoms.

No, he's got it down pat. It was always MTG. No mistake, no edit. Your memory is lying of course.

If true, that means the crowdseditionists got her killed.

Is she really making the point she thinks she is?

US Senate candidate Eric Greitens says he is going “RINO hunting" to save the country
Get a permit, there's no bagging or tagging limit

Isn't this video an explicit threat of violence?

Seems like the Republicans have found the poster boy for their new found respect for mental health care.

How about Dan Crenshaw?

From: Boston Globe
Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas, a Republican, was confronted by several far-right protestors at the state’s Republican Party convention over the weekend who targeted both his appearance and political views...Crenshaw-a former NAVY seal who lost his right eye in a roadside bomb blast during a deployment in Afghanistan-can be heard in one recording being called “eyepatch McCain” and a “globalist RINO [Republican In Name Only]” by a right-wing social media antagonist....Other videos show Crenshaw being verbally accosted at the same event. Those filmed accuse Crenshaw of being a “fraud” and a “sellout"...

Chenshaw's voting record definitely puts him on the far political right. Yet here he is being targeted by other right-wing nutcases.

What exactly did he think would happen when he decided to associate with them in the first place? Unless you are totally insane (like MTG) you will eventually do something to anger the lunatics that make up the republican party of today.

Hours after former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens released a video saying he would hunt members of the Republican party who he considered not conservative enough, the Republican floor leader of the Missouri state Senate said he had contacted law enforcement.

Quote:
“We have been in contact with the Missouri Highway Patrol and hope that former Gov Greitens finds the help he needs,” Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden posted on Twitter Monday. “Anyone with multiple accusations of abuse toward women and children should probably steer clear of this rhetoric.”

Quote:
Rowden’s post was in response to a now-deleted tweet from an unaffiliated account supporting Greitens’ U.S. Senate campaign. The account, called @Greitens_Eric, no longer exists. The tweet tagged Rowden, Gov. Mike Parson and others. It said “we’ve got our permit and we’re coming for you.”
Quote:
In response to Rowden’s tweet, Greitens’ campaign manager Dylan Johnson tweeted “Give me a break. This account obviously has nothing to do with @EricGreitens or the @TeamGreitens campaign.” Johnson’s tweet included a video from the TV show Reno 911 showing a crying man being consoled by two police officers. “A live look at the RINOs today,” he tweeted.

For Greitans to accsue anybody else of corruption is funny, given his past.
'To make it more interesintg, Hawley, the GOP senator from Missouri, basically hates his guts
In fact, Hawley, when a state offical, was largely responsible for forcing Grietans from office. A real good old fashioned Missouri feud.

Couple of good, old fashioned fascist Missouri extremists. The GOP is putting the most stupid and extreme nut cases they can into public office. Scary as hell.

The Missouri Times reported earlier this month that US Senator Josh Hawley, among others, called for Eric Greitens to drop out of the US Senate race following publication of an affidavit by Greitens's ex-wife alleging verbal and physical abuse.
Quote:
In an affidavit made public Monday, Sheena Greitens, the former governor’s ex-wife, accused Eric Greitens of being physically abusive toward her and their children and of manipulating and coercing her into publicly supporting his political ambitions. U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican, said: “If you hit a woman or a child, you belong in handcuffs, not the United States Senate. It’s time for Eric Greitens to leave this race.” Missouri Times link
Hawley and Greitens have a history. In 2018, when allegations of serious misconduct against Greitens first surfaced, Josh Hawley was Missouri Attorney General. Hawley called for an investigation and urged Greitens to resign or face impeachment. When an impeachment proceeding was scheduled, Greitens instead agreed to resign as governor.

But guess what? Yeah, that's right. Latest polling shows Greitens is leading the field:
Quote:
The poll of 1,000 likely GOP primary voters in Missouri found Greitens notching 26 percent support ahead of the Aug. 2 nominating contest. He’s trailed by state Attorney General Eric Schmitt, who has 20 percent support, and Rep. Vicky Hartzler, who scored 16 percent. The Hill link


Eric Greitens brandishing firearms and implying threats of deadly force is a regular part of his political rhetoric.
