Trumpster pulls gun after spotting Elizabeth Warren bumper sticker

Oh-oh--wasn't there a red line drawn there somewhere?

-------------------------

"Joseph Schumacher is accused of having driven up alongside a woman on Monday after spotting a sign on her car voicing support for democratic presidential frontrunner Elizabeth Warren.

As he pulled alongside her he rolled down his window, gesturing to the sign on his own car, which read Trump 2020.

The two began to argue from their cars on the central road through Moorhead, Minnesota. . . .

The back-and-forth continued for several blocks, however authorities say Mr Schumacher escalated the argument when he pulled out a gun and proceeded to wave it at the democratic supporter before driving away.

After finding the suspect at a nearby business, officers discovered a loaded handgun by the driver’s seat.

A passenger in his car later confirmed the 27-year-old’s actions.

Mr Schumacher, of West Fargo, North Dakota, has since been charged on suspicion of making terroristic threats, and one count of having a loaded weapon in a vehicle without a permit. "

That is one of the problems with lax laws on "carry." When it is so easy to carry a gun on your person, some get frustrated about not doing anything with it--so they do!

"Trumpery", the actual word, hails from the 1400s, via French to English, and - yes - it means "to deceive". The alternate meanings of showy but worthless, gaudy, delusive and shallow are all such excellent adjectives to describe Donald Trump. They all fit him to a "T".

As to the OP, the very idea of concealed carry for the general public is anathema to me. The OP is a case in point as to why.

So, it's an insult to fellow HT members when they're called Trumpsters.

Got it.

Honestly don't understand the role and relevancy here of this apparent quote ...

It’s the opposite of a “Leftist”. Why would that be an insult?

Could be. Or could just be a trumpster.

It designates a political supporter of Trump, a man who is deceptive, showy but worthless, gaudy, delusive, and shallow.

Not that much of a puzzlement, is it?

Gangster, hipster, prepster (anyone else use that one to mean “preppie”?), jokester, prankster...

The -ster suffix is quite common in English and isn’t in itself derogatory. It would only convey a negative meaning if the reader thought negatively about the noun at the root.

Oh, and nice to find out the gun wielder was from ND not MN. Not that it matters much but still, I’m glad MN’s reputation is intact :-D

Warning to any progressive. Do not put a political sticker on your car. The trump maniacs are itching for a fight and it might turn deadly. These right wing lunatics are unstable or how how would you explain their devotion to the idiot.

Increasingly, comments from Trump supporters are disconnected from logic and context.

(IOW - I don't know what some of their comments say.)

I hear you, Ziemia. Anxiety ridden, disjointed, conspiracy laden grasping at straws nonsense. That’s how their leader sounds too.

They are too numb to notice. Dangerous Don’s psychopathy is emerging in spades. Of course he shows no concern for our Kurdish allies. Cold transactional cash register.

He’s making tens of phone calls to Moscow Mitch daily. Good pairing — cold and greedy with cold and hateful.

Do not put a political sticker on your car.

That's good advice regardless of what politics you endorse.

It would seem that the few have no problem giving up their Constitutional rights to an expectation of privacy and the proper legality where search and seizure come into play.


Yes, it's sometimes unfortunate, but we can't punish the many for the idiocy of the few.


(I sure wish more folks were as hyper-focused on other important issues that currently plague our society as they become when the word "gun" enters the conversation.)

I wouldn't put a political anything on my car or on my person, but I appreciate when the Donnie fans self identify.
