Still a physical assault unless the reporter faked it. (Seeing other news sources have reported seeing the incident I find that unlikely.)

1. Can't pull off a proper bodyslam (or a chokeslam for that matter) without the participation of the "victim"


Uhh... How d'you figure?

The keyword here is "proper". He is technically right if he means the wrestling move where the victim throws themselves to the ground as dramatically as possible. In this case, it means grabbing someone by the neck and pushing them to the ground but that doesn't suit his narrative of the liberal media exaggerating an innocent right wing nutjob's violent outburst.

Your description bears little relation to a chokeslam.

Just as "pushing someone over" would bear little relation to a bodyslam.

So, naturally, as you don't feel this is hilariously exaggerated by the media (I mean you've even picked up and run with "bodyslam" as their chosen soundbite), you can show me some footage of this poor little reporter getting hoisted off his feet and upended onto the ebul representative's shoulder then unceremoniously dumped onto the floor.  As reporters aren't generally trained in the art of taking a flat-back bump it should be quite painful watching.

We live in hope...

Nice attempt at distracting from the fact that the witnesses also say that the representative went on to punch the reporter several times when he was on the ground which gives some context about how violent the initial contact probably was no matter what you want to call it. What seems to matter more to you is that the witnesses might have used slightly inaccurate language to describe his actions.

I'll stop feeding the troll now. It gets boring fast.

"How can you say that the media is exaggerating, they're simply using 'inaccurate language' to lead people to an inaccurate conclusion!"

Sophistry at its' finest :)

Don't bother. I made my previous post only to point out your little distraction to others who might want to swallow your bait to toy with you.

You think the reporter and the congressmen were in cahoots to prank Fox News?

Well, American Politics has looked like it's been transforming into the WWE the past couple of years...

Guess who made a new subreddit even though they have been banned before? Yup, the good ol' Alt-Right.

Linking it now though I doubt it won't take a long time for them to get banned again: https://www.reddit.com/r/altrightsub/

And obviously they haven't changed a bit and threads are all about complaining about (((Jews))) and other groups they hate, death threats, brigading, suicide prompts and thinly veiled or not at all veiled support for genocide.

Ok, there is one thing that is new. Now they like Israel for having tough laws on immigrants and refugees ...but at the same time they mock Jews and "global Jewish media" so the end result is really schizophrenic.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

There's two versions of the Alt-Right: the one that thinks they should hate everyone except Jews, because Israel, and the other that also hates Jews (but maybe still likes Israel).

Just bringing this up to point out that the "Unite the right" rally managed to do the opposite and Alt-Right and the other extreme-right groups are now eating each other.

Charlottesville was (for a few minutes) the highlight of Alt-Right. For a single moment they united most of the overly or secretly racist right-wing groups in USA and even after the terrorist attack one of their own did the POTUS didn't condemn them.

...But bragging about the terrorist attack caused the loss of a few websites, subreddits and political support. And after the organizer of the event insulted the dead counterprotester even Richard Spencer and other Alt-Right bigwigs denounced him (Realizing his mistake he first claimed that he had been hacked, conspiracy theorists immediately blamed some third Alt-Right loudmouth causing yet more rivalry between fan-groups. Then the organizer admitted that he made the tweet but said that he had been on drugs at the time. http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-charlottesville-organizer-20170818-story.html ) and causing more splits in the groups despite his hard work in bringing KKK, Nazis and Nazis Alt-Right together. Impressive self destruct that was.

Meanwhile most of GOP has either been publicly outraged at Trump's gaffes or trying to find some sort of way to balance, not appearing Pro-Nazi or anti-Nazi at the same time.

Oh, and Bannon left the White house. As a result The_Donald vs Breitbart split is happening despite Bannon trying to claim that he resigned willingly and is still on Trump's side. ...Instead we have Breitbart fans complaining about the "last honest man" being kicked out of WH and how they must go to war agaisnt Jared and Ivanka (who are EEEVIL Democrats.) and T_D is banning everyone who links Breitbart to their safe space because Trump can't have made any mistakes so Bannon must be an "unperson" now.

They bragged about 8 years of Trump presidency but unless they manage to stop this... clusterfuck of petty rivalries rather than losing 2020 they won't even hold majority after 2018. Seeing how Trump and GOP can't win votes despite it literally being possible only if they themselves vote against their own plans I can only imagine how things will turn out if the Democrats hold the majority.

(I imagine that the incompetent and two-faced Democrats will have at least 10 of theirs vote in support of GOP because we are living in a nightmare and bad guys win. And now I'm sad.)
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
