It's pretty mind-boggling anywhere, but in a developed country with a more or less democratic system of government it's utterly bizarre. Pretending that the last four years with Trump in charge have nothing to do with these and other developments is disingenuous in the extreme and defies common sense.

It's going to be a long way back.

They don't sound terribly, um, clever.

But you do have to wonder how they got this way, that their thought processes led where they did.

Virginia governor was also considered as a target for kidnapping.

You can bet that had either of the targets been Republican Governors, Trump would have been all over it blaming BLM, Antifa or Biden's supporters....

Why is having armed groups threatening to kidnap governors even a thing? This is supposed to be a modern, developed, democratic country ffs.

It's Then again, I believe....

But it's okay, Man Utd bought Rooney because they thought he'd said he liked good grammar.....

These types seem to always tend to look the same, larger size, white, male, with un kept facial hair.

I'm "sure" it's just a coincidence that this is another Democratic governot Trump went after earlier this year:

The easiest way to rile up people with guns is to tell them someone else is trying to take those guns....

Trump, speaking at a White House event Tuesday, followed a speaker from Virginia by saying, "We're going after Virginia, with your crazy governor, we're going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment. You know that, right? You'll have nobody guarding your potatoes."

If the idea is to protect potatoes does that make them spud guns?

Well it certainly looks that way. One of the men accused of hatching a plot to abduct Michigan Gov. Whitmer was a BLM supporter.
