“And the way for much longer are we going to proceed speaking previous one another?” Mac Donald continued.
“The Left performs soiled as a result of they – as you have got been protecting like no one else – are shutting down our speech; and with out that, what will we do?” Mac Donald inquired.

Individuals who perceive this are terrified after it occurs, and why they aim officers, [is] as a result of they stand for regulation and order.
