Odd how BLM and antifa rioters are mostly peaceful protestors, but pro-Trump protestors are rioters.

BLM blocked the streets. The bottom dwellers orchestrated an insurrection of government and occupied the US Capitol. To you, there's no difference.

If it was truly an insurrection - all of those conservatives the hundreds of thousands of them that were at the rally would have come armed to the teeth. There are 100 million gun owners in the United States and they own a 2 billion rounds of ammunition. If it was an insurrection - they would not have been armed with merely cell phones. Use your head.

They thought it would b easy. Now they're being arrested, employers are firing them, even a girl turned in her mother. They thought no one would notice they were there. That proves how stupid they are.

you're missing my point. Let's ty again:

If this were truly an insurrection and not just a bunch of hoodlums - just like BLM riots that swept the nation - then the hundreds of thousands of constitutional conservatives that showed up for the rally would have come armed to the teeth, the Capitol and surrounding grounds ^ buildings would have been seized and The People's House would indeed by occupied by The People for a change. All the politicians would have been taken into custody and the tribunals would be in progress with summary hanging on the steps as you read this.


However - since this was not an insurrection - this did not happen.

Criminals ARE stupid on the otherhand, and are getting what they deserve. Unlike BLM criminal rioters. Such a double-standard this nation has.

Tommy Boy 1
You're missing my point. Try to pay attention.

They are nothing like BLM. They were protesters that were arrested for blocking a public street. That' a civil infraction with a fine between $25 and $50. They were in the streets protesting police brutality and the police clashed with them.

The Trump***Inspired rioters were in DC to invade and occupy the US Capitol Building while both Houses of Congress were in session and certifying a presidential election. The intent was to overturn the election by threatening and if necessary, killing our government representatives. The fact is, people did die, and many were severely wounded. It was basically an insurrection. This was not "just a bunch of hoodlums" as you and the other traitors would like us to believe. The people involved in this fiasco will be going to prion for a long, long time.

BLM was protesting for their rights.
These traitors were attacking the very core of our federal government and our Democracy.

Well how many Play-Stations, Nikes were stolen during the “Riot”. During the summer’s peaceful protests how many businesses were burned and looted. It would be great that since President Trump will not be attending the inauguration. It would be fitting that just prior to the incoming taking the oath. The President leaves Washington on his private jet and does a fly over of the ceremony.

It wasn't alcohol that inspired the Trump supporters to visit the capitol. It was the Democrats. So to keep peace it might be a better idea to ban Democrats from flying and open the liquor cabinet. LOL.

Another, are you a doctor? No I can tell, you know nothing about viruses or vaccines. 359,000 dead, sad, but you had better bone up on history and causes of death each year in the U.S. You might get a real eye opener. Lets take abortions each year, I don't want to hear about Stalin, Hitler or any other tyrant when we have people I am sure like you who condone this practice. I pick this one because it is one which is preventable, but you don't seem to care about those stats, why is that? I think you may be the one w/out a clue. GET YOUR FACTS BEFORE YOU DEARE PREACH.

American Airlines was listed as one of the US Companys that stand to go bankrupt within the next couple of years. I hope this does not happen, there are thousands of good employees that work there.

Actually if it does it would be one of the best things for commercial air travel in the United States. This company has gone completely down the shiter in The last 5 years. they are consistently ranked one of the worst large commercial air carriers in the nation. And with good reason. To think we've lost airlines like TWA, northwestern, and Continental for this steaming pile of crap of an airline.

Those are not conservatives. Those are criminals. And it was a very very small faction of people versus who was at that rally and who actually believes in America, and liberty. The fact that you can't tell the difference means that you have fallen victim to the efforts of the radical left and the propaganda pushing media. Congratulations - you have been assimilated.

Hey Fred, stop it, watch something other then CNN or even Fox, do your own homework before you decide you are so smart. My experience with folks as you are that you pretend to know it all, you should practice as the Chinese proverbs suggest, it goes something like this, better not to speak so as not to show everyone just how stupid you are. Once again, good luck, I hope you get things figured out at some point.

Christ the left and the media, but I repeat myself, have taken the term gaslighting and turned it into an art form... Seriously, just because you folks on the left swallow every morsel that comes out of the mouths of the talking heads at CNN and MSDNC, doesn’t mean the rest of the country does.

You seem to suffer from transference and projection! The tendency to to project the bad things you think onto others. if anyone has taken Gaslighting and turned it into an art form, it is the Far Radical Right media, not the centrist networks. The mainstream media at least fact checks the information before broadcasting it. Unlike Faux News, Brightbart, and OAN.

You understand you're communicating with morons that truly believe that the one who was a complete failure on the Wall, Infrastructure Week, overturning Obamacare, operating a charity, running a mail order college, addressing COVID-19 testing, treatments, vaccine rollout, economic implosion, millions unemployed, (shall I go on?) is in fact a genius. They'll never admit that they've been totally conned.

Wow, really impressed with the Chinese and the Democrats then, as they seem to have not only hired these "actors" they also have created full cover lives and social media accounts for all of them to post the video and photos they took. These "actors" seem to have been active and working on their "fake, Trump Supporting, lives" on social media for almost 4 years, since Trump took office! That is quite a well funded and super well organized and secret conspiracy to have had the foresight to set it all up before Trump was even an elected president and no one knew who the Democratic party would run in the 2020 election, much less if they would win! Or, maybe the mob of terrorists were actually just what they seemed to be, some what paunchy, White, commando wanna-be's?
