To what? There were protests in 2016 therefore your argument is invalid? :lol:
Yes. Go read JSO's comment again please.
I did. Most of this (from both sides :mrgreen: ) is a fog of war/whataboutism/false equivalency party.

I think every headline should start with “Just like the Democrats...”

Just like the Democrats, Trump supporters break into Capitol, 5 dead.

Just like the Democrats, Trump loses 60 election fraud related lawsuits.

It doesn't say that either. :wall:

It says 56% of those that believe enough fraud took place to change the outcome of the election somewhat or strongly support storming the Capitol.
And that surprises you?

You're right again. Either I'm an idiot or that part of the graphic is convoluted and generally sucks.

I wasn’t talking to you. I was replying to SD before you decided to chime in with the blind eye shot.

I don’t think any argument is invalid...on the surface.

That's the one thing about all of this talk about the GOP party falling apart and the Dems moving towards the inevitable one party, decades-long nirvana that JSO keeps talking about. For all of the GOP's failings, which are many, it was a close Presidential election, they only just barely lost the Senate, and even then it's a 50/50 Senate with enough vulnerable Dem Senators that there likely won't be single party, significant changes getting through, the GOP made the House the slimmest majority since I think WWII, and the GOP made gains at the state level when they already had historically strong positions at the state level. I've always said that we're a political duopoly no matter what the partisans on both sides like JSO would like to say. No reason to say that's changing anytime soon.
