Question for the lefties here:

Is 17 where we can ridicule a teenager and switch from calling them a child and be ok with mocking them and wanting their life destroyed?

 

The reason I ask, is because the entire left seems to feel that Greta Thunberg, being 16, can not be talked badly about in any way for the specific reason that she is “only a 16 year old”.

 

However:

 

Nicholas Sandmann, who was 17 when his story hit the news (the one that is guilty of nothing more than a smirk), seems to be fair game for the left. They call him names and actively want his life destroyed, wish him jobless for the rest of his life and homeless to boot.

 

So when Greta turns 17, is the rightwing then allowed to freely mock and attack her or are you playing by a different set of hypocritical rules where children/teens can be attacked as if they are adults, if they are Republicans, but those that are Democrats must be treated as if they are toddlers?

The left will still consider Greta a "child" when she is 25...

 

Liberalism is a mental disease.

That is how they approach gun violence. They’ve called 20 year olds children, if they are victims of gun violence. They’ve referred to 18 year old shooters, the white ones, as grown men. They’ve referred to 18 year old black people shot by police as children. So they seem to have a bias on who they label as a harmless child and who gets to be a full grown adult.

Yep.

 

What ever fits the narrative and promotes the agenda.

Today, thousands of people assembled in streets around the world to protest the presidency of Donald J. Trump for the fourth straight day in a row.

 

While the vast majority of the protests have been peaceful, spurts of violence have drawn the attention of the media. Reports of protesters throwing rocks and bottles at police in Santa Ana, stories of property destruction in Oregon, and a video of a physical attack against a Trump supporter in Chicago are a few examples of the recorded violent reactions to Trump’s election.

President-elect Trump responded to the demonstrations by tweeting:

 

Trump’s supporters also perceive these protests as “unfair” because they claim there were no riots following Obama’s election.

 

According to conservatives on social media, “Republicans have jobs and responsibilities” and therefore couldn’t engage in civil disobedience to voice their discontent with the 2008 and 2012 elections. With this perception of the Obama elections and subsequent claims of “ Republican acceptance,” Trump supporters are now demanding the same “fairness” for Donald J. Trump’s presidency, “We sat through do nothing politics for 8 years, the least they can do is go shut up and sit in the corner for 8 themselves,” on Trump supporter explained.

 

However, these perceptions do not reflect what actually followed the election of our country’s first black president, much less the difference between why people are protesting Donald J. Trump’s presidency as compared to Barack Obama’s presidency.

 

Obama’s election in 2008 was preceded and followed by violent attacks and property destruction targeted against minorities.

Kaylon Johnson, an African American campaign worker for Obama, was physically assaulted for wearing an Obama T-shirt in Louisiana following the 2008 election. The three white male attackers shouted “Bad word Obama!” and “[African-American slur] president!” as they broke Johnson’s nose and fractured his eye-socket, requiring surgery.

 

More frequently, Obama’s presidency was marked by effigies of our first black president hanging from nooses across the country, for example in Kentucky, Washington State, and Maine, or being burned around the world. What Trump supporters fail to remember is that following Obama’s election, property was destroyed across the country, for example in Pennsylvania, Texas, and North Carolina, and a predominately black church was torched in Massachusetts.

 

In 2008, anti-Obama protesters lashed out against minorities because of their discontentment with a black man being voted into the office of president for the first time in our nation’s history. Conversely, in 2016, anti-Trump protesters are holding mostly peaceful demonstrations because of their discontentment with a man, who has ostracized minorities, being voted into the office of president.

 

And while anti-Trump protesters have engaged in mostly peaceful demonstrations against the president-elect, pro-Trump supporters have been responsible for a wave of attacks against Muslims, Latinos, blacks, and the LGBT community.

 

According to Mark Potok, senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center civil rights group, there haven’t been “such a rash of hate crimes in the United States since Barack Obama was elected America’s first black president in 2008.” Muslim women are reporting having their hijabs ripped from their heads, while immigrant children are being bullied. Trump’s name and slogan, “Make America Great Again,” are being found alongside swastikas and anti-minority messages in graffiti around the nation.

 

Ultimately, demonstrators are not protesting Trump because he is Republican. They aren’t protesting him because he is a white male. These protests are because of the bigotry his campaign has emboldened and the fear of discrimination his presidency has the capacity to perpetuate

You left out the kids at Parkland High School being threatened by knuckle dragging conservatives after they suffered a school shooting.

 

Care to talk about death threats being sent to the parents of 21 kindergarteners at Sandy Hook Elementary School?

 

There is no bigger coward than a right wing conservative.

I remember how some conservatives treated David Hogg.  And the parents of the victims of Sandy Hook.   I didn't see much moral outrage from conservatives here then.

FELONY INDICTMENTS (AS OF 9/17/2018) IN TRUMP CAMPAIGN/ADMINISTRATION

RELATIONSHIP TO TRUMP # PEOPLE INDICTED TOTAL # OF INDICTMENTS # PEOPLE CONVICTED TOTAL GUILTY COUNTS # OF PEOPLE IMPRISONED TRUMP ORGANIZATION, CAMPAIGN, OR ADMINISTRATION 5 55 5 22 2 (+3)* OUTSIDE CAMPAIGN CONSULTANTS (U.S. CITIZENS) 2 2 1 1 0 (+1)* FOREIGN ASSISTANCE TO TRUMP CAMPAIGN 26 153 0 0 0 FOREIGN, DIRECT INVOLVEMENT TO TRUMP UNCLEAR 2 2 1 1 1 TOTAL 35 212 7 24 3 (+4)*

Source: RoyalScribe / @kgoebel, tinyurl.com/POTUSFelonies201809

# of People Imprisoned: The initial number includes everyone whose sentence includes prison time, even if they have not yet reported to prison (e.g., George Papadopoulos). The +[number] represents other individuals who have been convicted and/or pleaded guilty, and whose sentences are expected to include prison time, but because they have not yet been sentenced, we don’t yet know for sure.

Trump Organization, Campaign, or Administration: For every previous Administration, this would be everyone: people who worked with the President before they ran, during their campaign, and after inauguration. For Trump, the loose affiliation of outsiders complicates how we identify these individuals. This section currently includes Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos, and Michael Cohen.

Outside campaign consultant (U.S. national): These are U.S. citizens were not an official part of the Trump Campaign, but who provided illegal assistance to the campaign (specifically, Richard Pinedo and W. Samuel Patton).

Foreign assistance to Trump Campaign: This includes 26 Russians indicted for hacking the DNC servers and for other U.S. election-related crimes. It does not include the three Russian companies that were also indicted.

Foreign, direct connection unclear: This includes Alex van der Zwaan, a Dutch citizen who has already served his prison sentence, as well Maria Butina, a Russian national who remains in U.S. custody. Both were arrested as part of the Mueller investigation, but it’s not yet clear whether they were involved in crimes relating to Trump, or got scooped up while investigating Trump’s corrupt associates.

For more details about the specific people involved, see People Included in the Trump Data below.

This includes individuals associated with each President’s private business, campaign, or appointed executive office. For Trump, the top number represents Americans, while the second number in [brackets] represents both Americans and foreign nationals.

If you don’t include foreigners involved in the Trump Campaign, Team Trump already has more people indicted and convicted that any Democratic President in the last 50 years.

Sounds to me like both sides feel a justification for attacking children of the opposite political party.
