    I'm confused, is it okay to approach public figures in restaurants and insult them again? Wasn't the right outraged about people doing that?

    I didn’t see Ted Cruz or Tucker Carlson make physically threats against protestors.

    You want to be on TV, you’re going to have to deal with some general jackassery in public every now and again. Comes with the territory.

    But I thought doing so was outrageous and a threat to the republic. Strange that similar outrage didn't happen here. Almost like massive hypocrisy.

    If you can’t tell the difference between a single guy being a jackass to a public figure and a mob of people invading private property to yell at a politician they disagree with politically and their family, I don’t know what to tell you.

    Oh so now it is about the number of people who approach you to insult you? Not buying it. It appears to be an in-group/out-group reaction. You are okay with your in-group doing it and not okay with your out-group doing it.

    Like I said, you can’t tell the difference so I don’t know what to tell you.

    I can tell the difference. You like it when your side does it and morally outraged when the other side does it. It is massive hypocrisy that I see. You just prefer your hypocrisy to not be the focus. I can definitely see that.

    Hell I call myself a kraut. When I do things that seem generationally German, I laugh and chalk it up to my “inner kraut.”

    We have to stop taking ourselves so seriously

    Cuomo does seem like a bit of a hothead. I have listened to his show on the way home from work on XM and it drifts toward the topic of who he can beat up more often than others shows I listen to. One time he was talking about how he could beat up Don Lemmon, which seemed absurd.

    I hope you have a vision plan to pay for that eye exam that you so desperately need.

    I love the framing to try to convince yourself that you are right. What happened to Cuomo doesn't get the private property label. He was "harassed" on private property. And yet, you only mentioned it for what "the left" does. Again, you just want to be okay with "harassment" on private property when it is your "side" while being morally outraged when the other "side" does it. And you want to pretend that isn't the case.

    So are you outraged when people harass other people at restaurants? Or is it okay if they keep the number under 5 people harassing the person or something?

    Lets talk about Michael, who was arguably more of a failure, though certainly more ambitious.

    Lots of "Michaels" in the news lately.
