Default Leftist billionaire suggests nuclear war for political ‘course correction,’ immediate

Libs are becoming downright scary. We've gone from kicking conservatives out of restaurants, holding up a bloody, decapitated head of Trump, wanting to throw children into cages with pedophiles, accusing Trump of physically abusing Melania, claiming Trump is running a sex trafficking ring, saying we're coming for Trump's kids, screaming, "Fuq Trump" at award ceremonies. Now libs are callin' for nuclear war.

Jesus ball-sack, libs are goin' off the deep end.

Leftist billionaire suggests nuclear war for political ‘course correction,’ immediately backtracks

Quote:
Steyer noted that he remembered 2006.

“What happened is that George W. Bush, he put us in two disastrous wars and we were headed toward the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression,” Steyer fired back. “So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.”

The clause reads as if it is said within a greater context. There's a question, or a back-and-forth hanging over it.
May we see the whole speech, Q&A or video please?

There is nothing preventing you from using Google to find this for yourself.

Think about how much of Republican or conservatives statements are taken out of context, and hell would freeze over before liberals would even consider the context in which something Trump has said as important.

I don't normally do the 'two wrongs make a right' thing, but I'm feeling grouchy today. As others said, find it yourself.

goddang it I have to explain what words mean again

Yes the context is right in the article-

During the interview, which was published Friday, Dickinson spoke of Steyer’s opposition to Pelosi’s ideals, noting that she opposed former President George W. Bush in 2006.

“[Pelosi] pointed to how she dealt with George W. Bush – whom many wanted to impeach,” Dickinson said to Steyer. “She believes the decision to take impeachment off the table helped Democrats take the House in 2006, and paved a path to Obama and a deeper correction.”

Steyer noted that he remembered 2006.

“What happened is that George W. Bush, he put us in two disastrous wars and we were headed toward the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression,” Steyer fired back. “So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.”


In other words, Nancy, if you want to wait for another economic disaster and possibly a nuclear war I'd like to impeach Trump before any of that happens.

I can't believe I went to all this trouble for people who actually have started doing the alt right websites' work for them
namely produce alternate facts.

Your attempt at deconstruction to cover up Steyer's zealotry failed. He explicitly stated he'd like to see a disaster "like a nuclear war" to achieve the goal of impeaching Trump. So besides an actual nuclear war what's a big enough disaster to propel impeachment ? The economy crashing as Leftist Bill Mahr hoped for? Steyer just articulated the ends justifies the means tactics of the Democrat led Resistance, burning it all down is acceptable as long as it rids us of Trump.

Until recently the Resistance has been largely content with street violence, burning cars, attacking demonstrators in Charlottesville and looking the other way while Antifa thugs beat up the enemies of the people. But that's changed now, Trump is still President so crashing the economy or even nuclear war or something like it is fine as long as it rids us of Trump.

We understand the English language just fine. What we don't understand is someone calling for a nuclear war just to impeach a president, or anyone deluded enough to attempt to defend the statement.
