"Transfer" = forcibly move.

And if they don't move willingly? What do you think the unsaid implication was, there?

It is because society is very polarized and people need to take stands.

Shapiro is definitely not the hill you want to die on, Harris would be better. But not Shapiro, or Rubin, or Tucker Carlson. Those guys know who is reading their material and what those people want. So if they aren't denouncing, they're supporting. You know how this works.

I mean...of course. What are we going to do about it, though?

On the lighter side, turns out a lot of people liked my reply to Charlie Kirk.

Ben Shapiro can't provide facts without being called a racist. Steven Crowder is the same way.

Lefties are presented facts and they grab the crutch, and they do it every time. Ya'll have labeled us as "racists" for so long that I don't even know what that word means anymore.

It's still early, but the Optics Award for June has to go to Donald Trump and his administration

That's kind of a self fulfilling prophecy type of situation though, isn't it?

These far right talking heads spend years promoting the idea that they're being unfairly repressed (despite controlling most branches of government), then they deliberately try to be offensive and push the boundary of acceptable conduct on social media, and then when they do eventually get banned/demonitized they get to yell 'see?! i told you i was being repressed!'. I know we weren't talking about Alex Jones in this case but he's a perfect example of this behavior.

At least nine other city governments — from Mesa, Arizona, to Erie, Pennsylvania — are still waiting for Trump to pay public safety-related invoices they've sent his presidential campaign committee in connection with his political rallies, according to interviews with local officials and municipal records obtained by the Center for Public Integrity.

Some invoices are three years old. In all, city governments say Trump's campaign owes them at least $841,219.
