    NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Cory Booker on Thursday said he would create a White House office to combat white supremacy and hate crimes if elected, becoming the latest Democratic presidential candidate to call for action after a racially motivated massacre in Texas.

    The proposal builds upon Booker’s sweeping anti-gun violence plan that would, among other things, establish a national licensing program for gun ownership.

    Under his proposal, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies would be required to conduct assessments of white supremacist threats and improve reporting of hate crimes. Booker would also create an advisory group of leaders from communities hurt by hate crimes to advise his administration.

    It’s becoming more and more obvious that if this country doesn’t Balkanize so that we can have our regions that are purged of the likes of Booker and his toxic garbage that abject violence is going to be both inevitable and necessary.

    You can’t live with them and they won’t stop.

    It's interesting that some time back, someone said that the Dems would be making gun control their primary campaign focus. I thought it was as foolish move. Then somehow, all of these shooting occurred and the Dems are riding this wave of anti-gun sentiment. Funny how it all seems engineered, huh? :cool:

    No more kooky than those who have been saying cue the mass shooting when there is something the Dumbs want out of the news cycle that isn't fading. They've been right multiple times now.

    Right at this moment, I wish this thread were in Tortuga. :) Not that I would say anything terribly offensive or wrong, just something that would be best to not be indexed by search bots.

    For what it's worth, the majority of this anti-gun sentiment lies with the politicians and the media. Oh..they'll tell you "the American people want more gun control", but it's a buncha BS. They have told that lie long enough and people have started to believe it...even "gun" folks have bought into it and believe we're just a small minority.

    Do...not...fall...for...it. It is a lie.

    When the FBI shows there are between 1.5-2 million NICS transactions run every MONTH, it's not indicative of a populace that is anti-gun and it ain't just a small contingent of folks that's buying all those firearms.

    The power brokers, the elite, the shot-callers, politicians and the media want gun control.

    The American people do not.

    And 18-24 million guns per year isn't a bunch of folks that have suddenly come down with a "bug" for collecting guns...

    It's a society that is preparing.

    The sad thing is it won’t stop at the election. The racial divide these people are creating is astounding. Violence will follow it as it has in the past.

    I didn't realize white supremacy had become so much of an issue. You know with the NO cases of it that have been seen lately.

    Where are all these skinheads that appear to have taken over the country, supposedly..?

    I still see your garden variety racism here and there (from all sides) but white supremacists is indicative of a collaborative effort. I haven't seen anything along those lines...

    "White Supremacy" rants are racist. It's an attack on all white people. I worked all my working life and worked hard. Towards the end I saw absolute morons promoted well beyond their capabilities simply due to the color of their skin and their big damn mouths. I saw other guys of the same skin color who worked just as hard as I did and were a hell of a lot smarter than those morons not get promoted. Every time I see this "racist" crap anymore I'm insulted. A bunch of guys living in the cold in Idaho and the very, very few skin heads that are still around do not denote Anglo-Saxons.

    Everyday of the Trump presidency is "White Supremacy" in action according to the race pimps. Everyone who is white that disagrees with them is a white supremacist. It started with the Obama presidency. Remember when you were automatically a racist for not wanting a liberal democrat for a president?

    They should make White Supremacy illegal. That should fix it.

    Fully agree. Just didn't mention it. Bussed in protestors stirring up the crowd, getting (pre-arranged) media attention. Seeding the ranks with shills. It's out of our own play book on how to change a foreign government.

    Leading the people that they have power in their protest alone. When they actually have no power. Its all just an illusion. They're just making noise.

    I borrowed this and increased your numbers as they were low and put it on a red background to paste on Facebook. It's a great point.

    It is scary to see the dem candidates saying that all trump supporters are racist and then saying they will create enforcement agencies to combat white supremacy.

    I hear “we are creating agencies to combat anyone who doesn’t agree with us 100%”

    Sounds like Stalin to me.

    Kind of a conundrum isn't it for some of these new gun owners?

    Also, I've never understood the left logic of taking away guns from the people and depend on the police that YOU don't trust.
    o_O

    These enlightened people certainly are stupid.


    Wait, I said logic and the left. Nevermind.

    Why not require all criminals to get a Crime Permit, at no cost to them, 24 hours or longer in advance of any crime they wish to commit?

    Exactly. You should promote this as a solution along with mine... making White Supremacy illegal. Between our two ideas we could make the US much safer. Think of the children.

    Remember that they define extremist, racist, and white supremacist as anyone who disagrees with them. More so if the person is not white. They have zero tolerance for minorities leaving the reservation.

    It's as if the FBI or CIA have identified crazy, unstable people that they can manipulate and trigger on cue.
    Recall that there were stories of Bubba sending agents provocateur into "militias" to incite violent action.
    Right ridge was once case. Agent showed him where to cut the barrel, creating the excuse to raid him.
    It is believed that OKC was invited by a foreign agent working for the Bubba admin.

    Naw. You can write in some sort of non- gender, non-race specific identity protection requirement. :rolleyes:

    Ya think?

    Look to your left. Look to your right. Then look in the mirror. Judas is among us.
