Donald Trump Threatens Biker Gang-Led Civil War, So That's Cool And Normal


Donald Trump is a fella who likes to get his way. If he wants an Oompa-Loompa, he doesn't want it tomorrow, he doesn't want it later today, he wants it now. And if people don't want to give him his freaking Oompa-Loompa, he'll scream. Or threaten them with violence of some kind.

In an interview with Breitbart published on Thursday, our very normal president laid into all the people who failed to give him the things he wants -- specifically Paul Ryan, who wouldn't even let him subpoena random Democrats he thought should be investigated. Investigated for what? Nothing specific, just investigated! And now Trump will never even get the chance to do that, because Paul Ryan personally lost Republicans the House, which means those wily Democrats will be getting away with ... "whatever."

Trump told Breitbart News in an exclusive lengthy Oval Office interview that Ryan blocked issuance of subpoenas to people he thinks should have been investigated on the political left, and now that the Republicans no longer have the majority in the House, people Trump says Ryan protected may have gotten away with whatever they did that warranted investigation.

Trump said that House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and his predecessor and fellow conservative Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wanted to be tougher with the left, but that Ryan would not let them.

Also, Paul Ryan did not force everyone to vote to fund Trump's wall, even though he really, really, really wanted it. How is that fair?

But it's not just Paul Ryan who's been getting under Trump's skin, it is also Democrats, who seem to think it is legal to oppose him and to investigate his shady dealings. He then noted that if Democrats keep playing "tough," the police, military, and biker gangs who support him (who are tougher) are going to be pushed too far and that will be "very, very, very bad" for them.

"So here's the thing—it's so terrible what's happening," Trump said when asked by Breitbart News Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle about how the left is fighting hard. "You know, the left plays a tougher game, it's very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don't play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that's all they want to do is –you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this."

His assertion that "Republicans never played this" is, of course, ridiculous. Benghazi? That weird thing where they thought the IRS was specifically targeting conservative groups even though they absolutely were not? Solyndra? Operation Fast and Furious? Benghazi again? And again? And again?

There were plenty of Republican-led investigations during the Obama-era. There weren't any of Obama, personally -- and not because Republicans were so nice and gracious, but because they didn't have anything on him to investigate. If they did, you bet your ass they would have done it. Hell, at least the Democrats actually investigate things to find out whether they happened or not, as opposed to Republicans who just throw shit out like "Lock her up!" or go around accusing people of having faked their birth certificates or secretly running underground child prostitution rings out of pizza parlors. I would say that it's better to investigate things than to just keep insisting they happened without an investigation, but that's just me.

As for the threat, Trump does not specifically say that the military, the police, and Bikers For Trump are going to band together and go all Altamont on Democrats who investigate him. But what else is it that he is suggesting they would do? Play a really hardcore game of pinochle? That seems doubtful. The message he is clearly trying to get across here is that if Democrats keep investigating him when he doesn't want them to be investigating him, his supporters in the police, military, and Bikers for Trump will do something "very bad" to them. He is essentially telling these people that if they did do something "very bad," they would have his approval and possibly his pardon.

One would think that after Cesar Sayoc (the guy who went around sending pipe bombs to journalists and Trump's Democratic opponents), Trump would be a tad more careful about encouraging his supporters to target his opponents with violence. Or after he offered to pay the legal fees of anyone who assaulted a protestor and then ended up getting sued by a guy who did exactly that after Trump refused to pay his legal fees. That does not appear to be the case.

The fact is, Trump doesn't care if someone reads this and goes "You know what? I AM TOUGH. I'm gonna go out and kill some Democrats." It's a win-win for him. He gets someone killed and then gets to go, "It's so unfair of the media to blame me for the actions of an obviously disturbed individual. FAKE NEWS!" and his supporters will rally to his side and the next day it will be like it never happened.

Can you imagine for a second if any of the Democrats planning a 2020 run had said something similar? The Right would lose their damn minds. "You don't even care that Steve Scalise got shot that one time!" they would yell, in between heaving sobs. They'd never let it go. Trump threatens violence against Democrats and it's just another day.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
