Well then stop burying the lede, motherfucker.

I call it a "supposed" insurrection because calling it an ACTUAL insurrection is a fucking joke. And the "virtually zero damages" is in relation to the multiple BILLIONS caused by those who "advocate" peace... :roll: :roll: :roll:

And here's another wakeup call: ANTIFA/BLM are NOT fighting for "equality". Not ever remotely.

Your focus on small groups is appropriate. It's usually small groups that change the course of history. Real men, not afraid to wade into the fray for love of country. :nod: :nod:

I'm thankful they exist and I wait for the time when they step up. The MAGAts that occupied the Capital certainly weren't them.

Fort Lauderdale mayor goes full drama queen at gay pride parade and flat out lies to media:

A 77 year old member of a gay men’s chorus, who couldn’t walk in the parade due to physical limitations, drove in it instead, in his pickup truck, complete with gay pride sticker, flying a big gay pride flag, on back of truck. Accidentally hits the accelerator instead of brake and runs a bunch of people over. Ft Lauderdale mayor in response:
It’s terrible. They’re laying on the ground. This is clearly a terrorist act against the LGBT community. This is exactly what it is. Hardly an accident. It was deliberate, it was premeditated, and it was targeted against a specific person. Luckily they missed that person, but unfortunately, they hit two other people.

Just making it clear that I don't think Trump and the MAGAts come anywhere close to qualifying.

I should add that it is both men and women and hopefully if needed I'm one of those that step up.

Don’t try and deflect from your flip-flop.


I’ll entertain you - given a true threat that requires civilians to rise up and protect this nation - I’ll fight tooth and nail. Fighting to massage the ego of a bullshit artist like Trump doesn’t qualify.

See, you blame Trump. I blame the left and THEIR message/goals. Big difference. Trump is just the vessel. Try and look a little deeper than what MSM feeds you.

I blame Trump, the GOP, the DNC, etc.... they're all culpable. See - I blame everyone. You only blame those you disagree with.

:?

:lol:

A NAVY COUNTERTERRORISM training document obtained exclusively by The Intercept appears to conflate socialists with terrorists and lists the left-wing ideology alongside “neo-nazis.”

A section of the training document subtitled “Study Questions” includes the following: “Anarchists, socialists and neo-nazis represent which terrorist ideological category?”

The correct answer is “political terrorists,” a military source briefed on the training told me. The document, titled “Introduction to Terrorism/Terrorist Operations,” is part of a longer training manual recently disseminated by the Naval Education Training and Command’s Navy Tactical Training Center in conjunction with the Center for Security Forces. The training is designed for masters-at-arms, the Navy’s internal police, the military source said.

“It’s just ineffective training because whoever is directing the Navy anti-terror curriculum would rather vilify the left than actually protect anything,” said the military official, who is not authorized to speak publicly. “Despite the fact that the most prominent threat is domestic, right-wing terror.”

But mostly bullshit. His biggest accomplishment? Stripping off the comical veneer of the woke left and exposing their hypocrisy for the world to see. Anyone with a brainstem can now see they represent everything that's wrong with this country.

Now, if only everyone had a brainstem.... :coffee: :coffee:

Honestly - if you didn't realize they left was hypocritical before 2016 then there are other problems.

I don't think Democrats represent everything that's wrong with this country. There are vocal extremists on both sides of the aisle that take up too much air time and newspaper space with their bullshit that we make important but really it isn't. The alt-right and far-left are the loudest voices so we're bombarded with their nonsense, lies and drivel and we never hear the sane, logical voices coming from a Republican or Democrat. Instead of worrying about how to keep our families safe and educated we waste time making sure everyone knows what pronouns are and aren't acceptable. Instead of spending money on our children, we're wasting it on some leftie's Transcontinental Snapping Turtle Highway that can only be used by snapping turtles.

There is hypocrisy all around. People saying their are pro-life yet pro-death penalty. :suspicious:

We've got politicians saying that Guam will tip over or are asking if we can alter the moon's orbit to combat global warming. We've got them saying Jews and Space Lasers cause wildfires and vaccines cause you to be magnetic.

We give these weirdo and loudmouths a megaphone when we should be telling them to sit down, shut the fuck up and let those of us that aren't full of shit to speak. If we want tin foil and a cake made out of wheat grass and bumblebee kisses, we'll reach out.

He's spot on about the brainstems. Too many of us consume news that only makes us happy and then regurgitate it like fact.
