    Patriotism seems to be a moving target these days.
    These poor idiots don't know what to do, or how to act out properly in a broken system.

    Assange, Manning, Snowden, Kiriakou, ect... Are whistleblowers hero's or villians?

    Was there election fraud? Absolutely.
    Was it enough to sway an election? Absolutely NOT.

    Because I evaluated if a claim was plausible or not? Give me a break.

    The scariest part of where we're at now is that there is absolutely no way to avoid the violence that's going to happen. There is one way... to give up our democracy, to allow trump to keep serving as president, to send Biden and Harris home and simply surrender our country to the terrorists. Obviously that can't and won't happen but how things are going to be handled doesn't matter regarding the looming violence. There's a shit ton of these delusional assholes and whether you impeach him, evoke the 25th, or allow his term to play out... these terrorists are going to rise up and go into full-on rage mode. This is truly frightening to me.

    Not knocking you, just pointing out that "blame antifa" has been a kneejerk response in those circles for months now and that plausibility doesn't really factor into the what or why.

    IIRC even the FBI said that Antifa wasn't involved.

    Not sure how many friends I'm gonna make here with this, but to me what I saw on the 6th, I feel like it's a mixture of Trump supporters venting out their anger/frustration and a classic case of when someone is getting bullied by someone, that the person getting bullied is gonna one day fight back.

    One thing I will say Mcconnel is an enormous douche BUT the schedule for the senate has been set already till the 20th. To even convene to discuss impeachment would require all members to vote yes to hearing the matter. ZERO chance of that happening with or without obstruction master Cocaine Mitch

    What is the bullying though?? There was no election fraud... so is losing an election bullying?? it's been over 2 months that these people and Trump are living in an alternate reality. There aren't people in Biden hats wandering the country being assholes to Trump folk. Any victimization is entirely imagined

    Agreed. Also most of our national news is extremely right wing constantly talking about Trudeau selling us out to the "new world order" and "socialist cabals" We are luckily less armed and slightly better educated but have big populist rhetoric

    So, if Jon would have been filmed raiding a Footlocker with BLM wearing a "Fuck Trump" shirt, he'd be cool then, eh?

    Considering Jon's crew also consisted of actual neo nazis and fuckjobs that were looking to capture and/or possibly harm/kill people...

    ...yes, significantly yes. Stealing shoes is significantly "cooler". :lol:

    Maxine Waters' comments back in 2018 are what stand out to me the most.

    Sorry in advance if this comes off as a straw man from me, but I will say though that trying to find articles/videos of what I'd said earlier was tricker than what I originally anticipated, but I ultimately feel like I'd rather give you one example that I thought stood out to me the most rather than link you a dozen articles and videos that aren't 100% relevant.

    Yeah, cause fucking foot locker is a historically significant foundation site and the backbone of your political system, right? Jesus fuck, this logic diarrhea is just mind baffling.

    Alright. Thanks for the clarification.

    Leftwing riots cool. Rightwing riots not cool.

    You can riot for 6 months straight as long as you're not an "actual neo-nazi".

    Just wanted to make sure.

    Duh, The bullying is, as always, from their fearless and godlike leader Trump!

    They are going through Stockholm syndrome!

    Who else is going to whip them up into a frenzy while simultaneously reaming them?

    They are lashing out at whatever he points at, because they want more Don Daddy, MORE!

    No one has ever made such insignificant loser lives mean so much, until he so effortlessly Made Their ‘Merica Great, Again!

    That you took that away from this exchange just further reinforces the point.

    "For god, country....and foot locker!"

    Stealing shoes is just as significant as kidnapping human beings.
