    ... and in other news ...

    Parler is back online.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/17/tech/parler-back-online/index.html

    Biden's first act regarding a caravan of thousands of migrants headed to the USA is to tell them to "don't come".

    Oh, it seems they've erected a wall around the Capitol. That's sorta weird considering the left claims walls don't work.

    If your goal is to become a "career politician" in the house or the senate, that requires being reelected a certain number of times.

    The mental gymnastics required to tell people with a straight face, "losing = winning," just...my god. :wacko:

    One side doesn't want police brutality.
    The terrorists that went to to the capital was not.
    Tell me, did any of the BLM protestors place bombs?
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2021/01/06/dc-protests-trump-rally-live-updates/
    Did any of them outright want to kill government officials? The two sides are not equivalent in the slightest
    https://www.tmz.com/videos/2021-01-09-010921-rioters-target-pence-4909001/
    Yeah sure, "kill Mike Pence" definitely doesn't mean that they were out to kill.
    Just casually chanting it like a normal angry mob.
    perhaps they really wanted tea time with Mike Pence.
    see clip above
    Why should I?
    Again, one side fucking planted bombs, one didn't.
    Also where it was planted also matters.
    Oh I'm sorry. I forgot. I actually care about democracy. Perhaps killing democratically elected leaders, is somehow. idk undemocratic. OH, and before you try to state, since I've heard this defense before
    "Well you see, they didn't kill any leaders. so it couldn't be proven"
    explain again why pipe bombs were placed in the capital? Idk about you but that shows explicit intent.
    Also, if your going to argue "well it was just one person"
    considering the size of the group, and how many where in there, it doesn't take much to realize that would mean a fuck ton of people were complicit with the idea of bombing elected officials
    Edit: would of found a normal video from say, youtube. but finding the footage, and let alone digging out the part I was looking for specifically, is a rather challenging thing to do

    Eh. They only seem to be doing that to their own voter base.

    ... Those that had the leverage to pull off all of the aforementioned obviously have the prerequisites, in spades.

    I'm starting to think you see a Political Party as a Monolith, which is something best shed as soon as possible.
    It is as Multi-generational as the Population.

    Instead of repeating myself, I'll leave this for a second read, which'll probably help understand it better, now that I've had to circle back and explain the obvious.

    You call tell Biden is love by the People when he needs a freaking army marching and setting up walls on what I'm calling now Fortress DC
    Trump never call the army to march for him in DC
    4 years of the Biden dictatorship will be interesting

    this is some low-brow mouth breather level bait. you're legitimately trying to compare a wall less than 2 miles long, actively patrolled by capitol police to a wall to one that would be 1,954 miles long. that's almost 2000 times larger, and like 6 feet taller across the entire length. the fact your would even try to make that argument seriously speaks to your level of critical thinking skills.

    also, a non-edited headline for the caravan is
    "Incoming Biden administration to migrant caravan: Don't come, you won't get in immediately".

    Honduran's seeking asylum would need to wait for the Biden administration to set their immigration policies. that takes time, and we are in a fucking pandemic so they are probably safer waiting until vaccines are distributed.

    for context:

    The Biden transition official, however, warned migrants against coming to the U.S. during the early days of the new administration, telling NBC that while “there’s help on the way,” now “is not the time to make the journey.”


    “The situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight,” the official told the outlet.


    “We have to provide a message that health and hope is on the way, but coming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future,” the official said.

    These people are at the Honduras-Guatemala border, they are 4000+km (2485+ miles) away from the USA-Mexico border, traveling on foot. it will take them months to even get to the US border.

    also it's like 10k people which is fine cause 400k Americans have died to covid so we have some more room.

    Jesus clearing the bullshit is tiring.

    gee, I wonder why he needs to do that? maybe it's because the Trump supporters are such absolute sore losers that they're attempting a fucking coup d'etat, having already attacked the Capitol in a (failed) attempt to threaten electors out of certifying the election, and thus fortress-level defense is necessary to ensure the man isn't assassinated before he can even take office?

    Old news. They're replacing that 8ft fence with a much more serious 12ft one now.


    What impresses me is not that they think they need this, and not the whole irony of the left claiming fences/walls don't work and then building them. No, what impresses me is how fucking quick they can get this shit done when they want to.

    Still not a win, even for McConnell or any Republicans who did retain their seats, as they get downgraded to the minority party. Bernie Sanders becoming Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee is a waking nightmare for them.

    And who's to say Trump is done losing elections for them? If he keeps running his mouth through 2022, the Republican party might still be able to find new lows yet.

    That's not an opinion... It's a fact that Republicans were lied to! Get over it!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Uhmm... So hang Pence and kill Pelosi was just part of a song or a joke that they kept screaming? Your an idiot, wake up and stop being so ignorant!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    So video evidence of them saying that isn't enough proof for you? Again... Your ignorant!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Maybe because people didn't die in BLM and because they aren't attacking the democracy of America... Again ignorant comments from Weiner boy!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Do you not realise how ridiculous it is to attack the actually democracy of America... Your pretty much going against democracy because a proven liar is telling everyone that he won when he can't even prove it in court. Trump is going against democracy and trying to get everyone to go against democracy as well... This country is made on democracy. Trump would turn it into Russia or China. Ignorant!

    Quite a few people did die during those riots. Burned to death, beaten/kicked/stomped to death, shot to death, stabbed to death. Some of it caught on live camera, and nobody doing a fucking thing except cheering it on.

    Apparently between 12 to 19, but no firm answer of deaths. Also no explanation of those deaths... Were they cops who killed those people or was it Republicans like that kid who shot a black person in the street with his AR-15 and walked away past the cops...?!

    Fact-checking claim about deaths, damage from Black Lives Matter protests

    Source: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.statesman.com/amp/113878088


    At least 25 Americans were killed during protests and political unrest in 2020

    Source: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/31/americans-killed-protests-political-unrest-acled

    @Hanafuda sorry but there's no such information regarding people being burned alive and the shit you just said. Why don't you back your allegations up with proof. I've tried to find that info but it looks like the only being retorted is that every prison who died was shot.

    This isn't comprehensive, took about 10 minutes. If you were following the news when these things were happening, you'd know about and remember the events I'm referring to. Although there was one event where a young man trying to defend his store was beaten quite apparently to death. And by that I mean head stomped, limbs pointing in all the directions, etc, left unconscious and laughed at by the perps. But I was surprised to find out while pulling up these links that he survived. I couldn't find details about his condition ... could be paralyzed for life, could be brain damaged. But he didn't die.

    Senate Budget Committee? How's the economic record of the Republican party working for you?
    I'll go send today's newspaper to victims of the Great Depression.

    Not great obviously, but there still is and has been plenty of money flowing into corporate welfare that can be redirected for the benefit of the working class.
