Monday Open Thread, And Where The Hell Is Colin Bonini?

Bonini  I put up this open thread with the subtitle asking where is Colin Bonini.   I am hoping that the readers here can inform us of all the places they have seen and heard Sen. Bonini campaigning.

I also open it up to people listing the worst candidates this cycle, be it Bonini, Lafferty, Hillary Clinton, or whoever.

    This is what Trump said,……

    ” He was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. His wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably—maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say.”

    ……..but if you’ve been listening how the media have spun the quote, you can see how they are playing people for fools.

    The media never actually gives the quote when they are slamming Trump, they just call it an attack on the “gold star parents”, or they paraphrase it some other way to make it sound worse than it is.

    Yes, Trump should sometimes keep his big mouth shut, but the both shotgun barrels response from the media in this particular case is completely unwarranted and obviously coordinated.

    I think the way in which the media has spun this is the final proof that the main stream media is essentially an arm of the DNC.

    This guy Khizr Khan is not just some unlucky parent of a fallen soldier.( who BTW died in a war that Hillary voted for and Trump had nothing to do with) He’s not up on the DNC stage giving a public service announcement. He was brought on stage to specifically attack Donald Trump.

    Khan has ties to the Clintons and his job as an attorney promoting Muslim immigration is at odds with Trumps proposal of limiting immigration. There is a big conflict of interest here…..He’s out there now saying that Sharia law doesn’t exist ,but some of his writings in the past contradict his current statements…. and why did khan’s law firm delete it’s website?

    The Democrats have made this guy one of their top political operatives. Has anyone asked Khan what he thinks about the LGBTQ community and same sex marriage for instance…. Is this really the guy that the DNC want to put up on a pedestal?

    Watch the hacks from CNN and their expressions and how they shuffle their notes around as they tag team a Trump spokeswoman while killing journalistic objectivity.

  3. Puzzled Observer says:

    Colin was hanging out at the Republican booth at the African-American Festival on Legislative Mall in Dover on June 25. He was easy to talk to (I’d never met him before) and we got into a 10-minute discussion of what he was FOR, as opposed to what he’s AGAINST (the state budget, for example). He wants to make marijuana legal (he feels it is already, effectively is) and tax it like cigarettes and alcohol. He said he will propose a plan to do so at some point in the forthcoming campaign. He also said he’s talked with state officials about the intricacies of the taxation administration and thinks the idea is workable.

    And we have our first sighting of the rare Bonini bird. Are there any confirmations of this sighting?

  5. mouse says:

    I Googled “killing journalistic objectivity” and it came up with a link to Roger Ailes lol

  6. anon says:

    I Googled, “Google Liberal Bias” and came up with 1,900,000 results.

  7. fightingbluehen says:

    The New York Times is admitting that they are biased in this election. Here it is, right from the horses mouth.

  8. mouse says:

    I’m hoping to vote for the guy if he doesn’t turn into a talk radio republican along the way

    …hanging out at the Republican booth at the African-American Festival…

    When is the “Caucasian Festival?”

  10. Fish Bites says:

    Well, Rick, there is the German club Oktoberfest, the Polish festival, the Greek festival, the Italian festival, St. Patrick’s Day, the Scottish Highland Games, and a number of other events particular to various traditions among people who are primarily Caucasians. And those are just ones in New Castle County which I’ve been to. I understand there is a Chinese one next week, and I’m hoping to drop by that one too.

    You should get out more often. If none of them suit you, then why don’t you organize one. Or do you expect other people to organize one for you?

  11. Honi Soit says:

    There already are many Caucasian festivals, Rick, but I’m sure you know that to be the case. Because Caucasians have been such a large part of the overall population, this crowd has taken into specializing into festivals according to heritage nationalities: Italian-American festivals, Polish-Americans festivals, German-American festivals, Irish-American festivals, Portuguese-American festivals…and so on.

  12. The truth says:

    I googled Frank Knotts and the results were over 1,000,000 hits saying he was a total knucklehead

  13. Frank Knotts says:

    Only a million? I’ll have to try harder. Let us not forget that black “African-Americans ” do not for the most part have a nationality to celebrate, this is why they are forced to generalize as a continent. Also, don’t forget their are also white African- Americans.

  14. Rick says:

    Well, Rick, there is the German club Oktoberfest, the Polish festival, the Greek festival…

    Yes, but none of them are hyphenated-American festivals. None of them have a racial connotation.

    You should get out more often.

    I am out all the time. Always have been. But, how would you know?

    Typical “liberal” (actual, lockstep conformist) mind-reader. Change your name to Kreskin.

  15. Fish Bites says:

    “Yes, but none of them are hyphenated-American festivals. None of them have a racial connotation.”

    First off, yes, one finds mention of German-Americans, Polish-Americans, Greek-Americans and so forth at these festivals.

    Secondly, they don’t have a “racial” connotation because the experience of white immigrants to this country, and the maintenance of their various cultural traditions, is not the subject of a shared and common history. Germans were among the colonial groups, Italians came much later, etc., in various waves. This is distinct from the situation with African Americans, the majority of whom are descended from slaves imported from West Africa, and whose shared experience has more in common than between, say, descendants of Wilmington’s original Swedish population and, say, Italians who immigrated via New York in the early 1900’s.

  16. mouse says:

    Interesting how much energy these angry uneducated white guys tie up in their primitive tribal resentments.

  17. Fish Bites says:

    True that, mouse. But instead of getting off of his ass and organizing a Caucasian Festival, he’ll just sit back and complain that someone hasn’t organized one for him. Typical lazy Caucasian who believes work is for other people.

  18. kavips says:

    The press has finally started acting like a press. Donald Trump is a danger and no one yet knows whether he has enough votes to be elected. Therefore the press is doing everything it can to get the message out to regular people that Donald Trump is dangerous,

    If they’d done that to George W. Bush in 2000, we’d have a balance budget as of 2008 and no recession caused by an unregulated derivative market.

  19. fightingbluehen says:

    “The press has finally started acting like a press.”

    The press has been biased since I can remember. It doesn’t matter who the Republicans have as a candidate… The media will turn them into racist bigoted homophobes conducting a war on woman…. That’s what you do when your candidate has nothing else to run on.

  20. Frank Knotts says:

    FBH, personally, I like my press biased. Let them be who they are, let them express their honest feelings. The media as an unbiased reporting mechanism for politics has always been a lie.
    And drop the liberal tag. Have you watched Fox News? Their next breaking news report might just be about the condition of Trump’s colon since they have their heads so far up his backside.

  21. Rick says:

    First off, yes, one finds mention of German-Americans, Polish-Americans, Greek-Americans…

    Bulls#!t. It is the “African-American” moniker that is ubiquitous, and it has racial connotations. It is code for “black.” “Polish” means Polish, not white. “Greek” means Greek, not white.

    If you can’t see the difference, then you must be another Democrat zombie.

  22. mouse says:

    OMG, don’t you ever get tired of a being an angry old myopic, resentful white man victim obsessed with the evils of an oppressed minority?

  23. Jerry says:

    Did this Rick just get mad at the word “African” for having racial connotations?

Got something to say? Go for it!
