No 'Red Flags Laws'! It's Not 'Mental Illness'! It's Anger! (Mon, Aug 5, 2019)
Don’t Turn on Trump
Trump is wrong but chill out. Don’t turn on him over this disagreement. These are just words. Don’t turn on him just because he’s wrong. Don’t misread this speech as a betrayal. This should not surprise you. BUT… watch how this pans out. I suggest the high probability he will be much more reasonable than this came off.
Obama and the cop killers

Daniel from North Carolina — great call, thank you!
Sal from Kentucky — great call, thank you! I think Sal asked James about Tulsi Gabbard.
Earl from Michigan calls for the first time on the Hake report. Earl called James a lackey for a previous conversation James had with a caller named Skip where James said he agrees with everything Jesse says to move the conversation along. James mentions how he has plenty of “wiggle room” but in all seriousness he wants Earl to point out something Jesse is seriously wrong about. James turns it on Earl and calls him the lackey! They get into it about Eric Garner
Thomas from Georgia is sure that Trump’s “rhetoric” is at least partly responsible for the violence over the weekend. He brings up the accusations that Trump calls Mexicans rapists and James corrects him on what he said and reminds him that what the president said is simply factual. James calls Thomas out for being a fake conservative while Thomas goes on believing the media lies about the El Paso shooter saying “Trump is my biggest fan”. They get into it rapid-fire style over the wall, Mexico paying for it and Obamacare before James drops him.
Adam from Washington (DOJ stats guy I believe)
Skip from Georgia wants to clarify James accusing Skip of hating. Skip wants to know where James got that he is hateful. Skip just calls out Jesse when he is wrong according to him. Skip has one example of Jesse being wrong about Jesus being a created being or not. Skip attests that James is putting words in his mouth.
Preston from Alabama is sure that Kamala Harris was crushed during the debates. He remarks on how we don’t really have a conservative party anymore either. James also saw Dan Crenshaw supporting red flag laws. Despite it, all James stand with Trump because his actions seem spot on, today's speech is just words.
Michael from Utah has some words about the shootings. His father is an avid gun enthusiast and says it's not the gun its the person.
Red Flag Laws Are NO Good
I didn’t get to this info completely, but here are some notes…
Someone in the chat reminded me that one man was killed in a shootout when police arrived to confiscate his guns.
(CBS Baltimore, Nov 5, 2018) Maryland’s ‘Red Flag’ Law Turns Deadly: Officer Kills Man Who Refused To Turn In Gun
A 61-year-old man is dead after he was shot by an officer trying to enforce Maryland’s new ‘red flag’ law in Ferndale Monday morning. Anne Arundel County Police confirmed the police-involved shooting happened around 5:17 a.m.
I Don’t Like Mental Illness Talk Re: Guns
I don’t trust the government, family members, doctors, experts or anyone else to have the good judgment to legally take someone’s guns by way of a corrupt liberal judge. Remember these people called the Tea Party “terrorists.” The TEA PARTY! They call Veterans as having PTSD, which is a mental illness. The vets are often our militia, our line of defense!
I don’t like them pushing pills on people. They hear voices. They go even more nuts once they come off the pills than they would had they never taken them!
(Slate, April 9, 2014) Anger Causes Violence. Mentally ill people aren’t killers. Angry people are. In 2014, psychologist Laura L. Hayes wrote about the relatively weak connection between mental illness and mass shootings and the much stronger connection between the inability to manage anger and violence. (Slate reposted the article after the February 2018 Parkland, FL shooting.)
She says: “Violence is not a product of mental illness. Nor is violence generally the action of ordinary, stable individuals who suddenly “break” and commit crimes of passion. Violent crimes are committed by violent people, those who do not have the skills to manage their anger. Most homicides are committed by people with a history of violence. Murderers are rarely ordinary, law-abiding citizens, and they are also rarely mentally ill. Violence is a product of compromised anger management skills.”
(I don’t like her wording, she sounds to me like a brainwashed intellectual. I’d love to hear Jesse interview her. But there’s a decent point in there somewhere. Anger is mental [or spiritual] illness. Affecting the mind/body.)
Joy When Whites Do It
Jesse said the same thing for when blacks or whites go out of control. Same thing.
You’ll notice the liberals and POCs want to scapegoat “white supremacy” and get gleeful when whites do wrong.
Drudge is pointing out the blame game: Liberals trying to blame Trump’s rhetoric, even though the the supposed manifesto was words more of an alt-right Andrew Yang fan than a Trump supporter. He wanted a universal basic income. He believed automation and immigration were killing job prospects. He specifically said he had his views before Trump.
It’s deeper than the ideology. It’s not just mental illness. It’s the anger.
