Nah. You misremember the movie. The movie producer who was made "an offer he could not refuse" ended up with a horse head in his bed, not in the morgue.

 

Zelensky was in the same position.

The trope name comes from the movie the Godfather where Don Vito Corleone is always making people offers (such as letting one of his favorites star in a movie or signing a business over to him) with dire consequences attached if they are refused (like, say, a bullet in the head, getting put in the hospital, or having the head of the person's prized horse being delivered to his bed).  A/K/A a "throffer", a threat mixed with an offer such as, "Kill this man for cash or I'll kill you."

If tens of thousands can line up in the streets to burns and destroy, then they can walk into a polling station.

clearly we CAN NOT have mail in voting   holy shit folks...what is wrong with you   If you can protest,  you can vote in person    if you can  wait in line to see John Le

We do not have "national voting". We have simultaneous local voting supervised by state and county officials. No one has proposed that the entire country have nationally controlled mail in voting as T

Dude. I know the movie. You don't seem to. Just admit you were wrong.

totally relevant.

 

When the United States citizens of Charleston, South Carolina put on gray uniforms and fired cannons at US troops at Fort Sumpter, they removed themselves from the protections provided to citizens under the constitution.  Just like when Anwar al-Awlaki took up the cause of Al Qaeda.

Can you show me where Anwar fired at troops or harmed any other American? 🤣

 

How about his 16 year old son? 

 

He got assassinated without due process for NOTHING MORE than his political beliefs and YOU SUPPORT such a blatant violation of the constitution. 

 

Jut imagine if Trump did what Obama did. You be SCREAMING for immediate impeachment.

You folks seem pretty comfortable w/ autocratic speak.  
 

But don’t let a black man put communist dijon mustard on a sandwich or wear a tan suit.

Trump often talks/tweets outta his ass, just like you do.
