Yeah, those images weren't cherry picked or anything.

They WEREN'T.

Did anything like the picture on the left happen during the widespread, multi-city, racial protests that went on for several months during the summer?

 :yessign:

Did anything like the picture on the left happen during the one-day post-rally protes... I mean "VIOLENT ARMED INSURECTION"... at the capitol on Jan 6th?

 :nosign:

...and they were armed and invaded the capitol... that's a bit unique. Why pretend it isn't?

Why PRETEND they were "armed"?

Do a Google image search for "capitol insurrection photos". Now try to find some photos of people armed with their AR's or shotguns or pistols.

Hmmm. Okay. Try this then. Do a Google search for "capitol armed insurrection photos".

Damn. Still not seeing any crowds of people with guns... or crowds carrying any other noticeable non-firearm weapons. Although... Elsewhere, during news broadcasts, I did see a couple of pictures somewhere of someone spraying pepper spray. That might qualify as "armed". Let's have a moment of silence for all the thousands of people killed by pepper spray in the last year. :-\

Okay... now... Would you like me to identify where this photo was taken? Right down the street from my moms cousins church in Stone Mountain Georgia. I used to ride my bicycle down that street on my way into Stone Mountain Park when I was a kid. Are you old enough to have children? Would you let your child ride his/her bike past that group of people?


That is what an "armed insurrection" usually looks like to normal people when they aren't being biased and taking political affiliations into account.

Lol Orange Man is not only suspended from twitter but his Facebook just got deleted for the rest of his presidency.

He told the people to remain peaceful and respect law enforcement but the narrative is that he committed treason and tried to spark a civil war.

It's truly insane what was allowed to take place during the election. Courts violating the constitution followed by courts.refusing to hear the cases exposong what they did. So much shit went without investigation or audit. Just dismiss it and silence anyone bringing it up.

The constitution is dead. Hail Beijing!

I would like to see what the "Overhead" percentage was for the Biden Charity.
This shows how much of the money taken in actually goes to the purpose of the charity.

Forget the Grant or No Grant argument, I want to know if I gave 100.00 how much of it would actually go to the cause that the charity calls out.

Even if they took in 30 million, their overhead would still be 10 percent.

"I want a summary"

"No I want all the evidence"

"What do you mean, get it myself? No you get it for me so I can ignore most of it and state or heavily imply that the rest is fake"

The email [from Maj. Bridget Hallahan, who commands the police department's Fifth Division] begins by saying: "I know it is hard to keep our thoughts and opinions to ourselves sometimes, especially when we, as a whole or as an individual, become the target of people in the public who criticize what we do without even knowing the facts.

"These ANTIFA and BLM people, especially the ones who just jumped on the bandwagon 'yesterday' because they became 'woke' (insert eye roll here), do not deserve a second glance or thought from us," it continues. "Our little pinky toenails have more character, morals, and ethics, than these punks have in their entire body."

"Do not stoop to their level. Do not respond to them. If we do, we only validate what they did. Don't make them important, because they are not. They will be the ones washing our cars, cashing us out at the Walmart, or living in their parents' basement playing COD for their entire life."
[...]
Hallahan goes on to say, "If you need to bitch about it and get it off your chest, come to my office and we can vent together."

Yes, Hallahan's email breaches decorum, and it makes sense she would be reprimanded for that reason.

However, don't pretend there isn't a context in which this email is taking place:

"Do not stoop to their level. Do not respond to them. If we do, we only validate what they did."

Typical. I really wish more people had a fucking library card.

Coincidentally...

I saw this bit of recommended reading in my "new tab" area in Firefox.

https://getpocket.com/explore/item/it-can-happen-here?utm_source=pocket-newtab

The "It Can Happen Here" and picture of Hitler haranguing a crowd. And somehow, I must've been fucking psychic in predicting that it would compare Trump to Hitler while championing Liberal leftism as the last bastion of democracy for the sane.

How the fuck do these feeble minded idiots survive every day without accidentally drowning themselves in their own toilet bowls after a good morning piss? Oooo, Yes yes sweetie, obviously it's TRUMP and massive mobs of Republicans who are actively tearing down statues and trying to revise textbooks and abolish police while forcing one race of people to submit to thought reprogramming while capitalizing Black and while not capitalizing white. etc etc etc.

One side is saying, "Let's keep America the great strong place that it's been since it's founding. Land of the free! Home of the brave!"

The other side is saying, "Everything's fuckin' wrong. Let's change it all. Let's make America something it's never been before."

Refresh my memory... did Germany stay the same after the Nazi's came to power... or did it experience radical policy changes? :ohreally:
