Re: “Political Punch

I am far from being anything close to be called or labeled as a Trump fan or supporter.
But, The irrefutable Facts are that protected Free speech has been hindered by threats, physical violence, property damage and outbursts of the far left far more than this isolated Sanders incident where he was shouting and trying to stop Trump from speaking. Bottom line, Sanders's comments are not worth the cost of the ink required to print them, let alone being given the dignity as a lead story in this or any other publication!!

Re: “Political Punch


In all seriousness, name one thing Trump is doing to benefit Tucson?

He doesn't really seem to be able to do anything, and there are so many things that need to be done.

Re: “Political Punch

This guy Sanders must be as mentally challenged as he is biased against Trump. What kind of an idiot would go to any event to disrupt the proceedings and oppose the main purpose. I trust the Weekly will give equal time to recognize everything Trump is doing to the benefit of Tucson, Arizona, the U.S. and the world.

Re: “Political Punch

CW13 So, hate crimes have dropped to about 500 in 2017, and Trump hate crimes make up about half the sample? Naw. They're a drop in the overall bucket that only increased since the Trump election, and you can consult the Southern Poverty Law Center for additional general facts about hate crime.

Re: “Political Punch

That is exactly why he says we need to build the wall. To keep illegals out. What law did his grandfather break? If you have difficulty feeling normal around family and friends, it may be you.

Re: “Political Punch

I did wonder what really happened. The morning after election night was the first time in my life that I woke up with an anxiety attack at 3:30am. Then I tried to assure myself Trump would step up to the job, but I over estimated his capability.I still have difficulty in feeling normal around relatives and friends who excuse everything this value-free, amoral bag of wind says or does, and that feeling extends to Congress. It would have been so lovely if Austria had only reinstated Trump's draft dodging grandfather's citizenship. That is not an illustrious immigrant family. I guess you could call it an immigration problem along with that of Rupert Murdoch.

Re: “Political Punch

No attack. You shared info. I shared info. There's an estimated 260,000 hate crimes in this country annually as per a 2013 government study. You do the math if Trump hate is a real national problem.

Re: “Political Punch

MB: Amren is a controversial site, but that doesn't mean its map is wrong. They provide links to news stories for all the anti-Trump supporter attacks they've documented. If you think they are lying about the attacks, say so and provide evidence. Just saying they are bad people is a lazy ad hominem attack.

Re: “Political Punch

Bryan, great article!
I notice in this photo that you and the person in the hooded outfit are the only two with your arms in the air. What was he saying that motivated you to appear to agree? What is their name? Have the two of you attended any other rallies?

In the top right photo you can see the female security guard kept him from joining in the fight. Did you speak to the hooded person after the fight?

Here is an interesting article regarding this event, from the Left.

And lastly, why do you want them to stop talking about Russia?

Re: “Political Punch

Sure, Bryan might come across as a flyover wasteland version of Abbie Hoffman but he should be commended for any role he played in reducing the charges against Mr. Pettway. It was an egregious assault but considering all of the surrounding circumstances jail time seems silly. Maybe Bryan can get Mr. Pettway to join him in some community service, find a common cause that they can bond over. Friendships have been forged from stranger circumstances and it would send a great message to the nation!

Anyways, I appreciate your passion if not your politics. Don't stop being true to yourself and I hope you continue to move towards unification and cooperation, that is our only way out of this mess.

Re: “Political Punch

Great Article!!! Bryan is one of the nicest folks that I have ever known. He contributes to our city in so many ways. Bryan assists a non-profit agency in Tucson that focuses on mental illness and donates a lot of his time. He has volunteered to teach soccer to high school kids and has done so many other kind services in Tucson, that it would take me hours to list all of Bryan's generous contributions. His kindness and encouragement truly make Tucson a better place! We can learn from Bryan, and we all need to work together to make Tucson better. I have close friends that are Democrats and close friends that are Republicans and we collectively focus on strengthening our community.

Re: “Political Punch

Yes, the people who came to see hear him speak probably got sick of you yelling the whole time. I'm not surprised someone finally punched you. What a jerk.
It must be hard on the liberal narrative that you were punched by a black man.
"a fragile constitutional democracy which in practice is not more than 40 years old". Wow, the U.S. was founded in 1977?

Maybe get old George to get his bulldozers out again and make it a productive profit center for rogue subdividers.

Good to have somebody leaving warnings from further up the road! Looks like you almost joined the cast of Grim Fandango. Excellent heads up.

Jack DYkinga is an incredible, yet humble man of extraordinary talent and perseverance. His life's work poignantly speaks to that. He inspires us all to THINK, and to cherish.
