Trump followers defend the sucker punch: ‘Just a little poke on the beak’ - The Washington Post:
Way back in 2004, the (embarrassingly) current sitting Senator from MN, Al Franken, body slammed a heckler at a Howard Dean rally. ... oh, never mind, no story there! (nobody made any deal about it then either -- Franken bragged about it!)
I can't imagine that Al would not be consistent on this, right?
A little contrast here. Some 78 year old guy punches a 26 year old guy at a Trump rally -- BIG deal in the media!
The reason they manipulate us is because it works! (generally)
Rule of law and consistency are how people live in peace -- either Franken and the 78 year old guy are right, or they are wrong when law and consistency hold sway.
When "The Party" and "situational ethics" hold sway, then "might is right" -- by ballot, by bully, by bullet, it is all just POWER!
