I look at it as you still had an animal attempting to harm the POTUS and he had enough time to do so. I really don't care if it were a jelly doughnut or a shoe. What scares me is the lack of timing by the secret service.
Yeah, the Secret Service effed up badly.
But what I find really curious is that you continue to mistake this as an act of harm, rather than expression of moral outrage. If he had wanted to harm the president, I would think it more efficacious to use something other than footware. Call me crazy.
I also find it curious that you refer to this person as "an animal," not in a strict biological sense, but in the sense of some superiority reminiscent of those lynchin' whites who used to see blacks as animals. You've stated that they can kill each other, they (?) are "animals" (twice in this thread), and you offer the curious epithet that they piss in the sand. OK, so you're a Steelers fan. And a xenophobe. That's fine, you is what you is.
I for one don't care whether anyone here is liberal, conservative, full of love and joy, or full of hatred and bigotry. And I'm not going to tell you what you should believe. Free country and all. I happen to find the policies of our standing President distasteful, but I would never condone a serious attempt on his life. But I think you're using that idea, of an attack on the POTUS, as some sort of justification of a sick worldview that I can't get behind.
If you met Jesus on the street you'd probably think he was a terrorist. Just my 2 cents, and believe me, I'm done on the soapbox. Last thing I feel like doing is getting into another protracted discussion on politics and morals, because frankly, I'm exhausted from it all, and I'd rather concentrate on some serious pigskin entertainment heading into the playoffs. I enjoy reading the comments of this community for the most part. Just not yours, when you get on your soapbox.
But like I said, free country.
