I'll give MayorHaggar partial credit here- cosplaying losers pretty much sums them up. Certainly better than some of the over the top stuff.

It seems most of them weren't really trying to topple power, i.e. Yak guy. But there certainly was a cluster of crazies who were.

Yeah, I guess it was just a coincidence that the electoral college vote was being counted and certified at the time Trump dupes breached the Capitol building.

No one thought our country or anyone was in serious danger. Why? All the tweets were about blaming Trump, not "OMG whats gonna happen? I don't know what to do" 9/11 style panic.

Go ahead and Reichstag fire this thing if you must. Trump and his supporters walked into it. Fair game.

Twitter suspending Dear Leader's account must be the worst day for him in his Presidency. What else can he now from his toilet seat at 4am in the morning?

I only just heard it was upgraded to a permanent suspension.    :laugh:

Perhaps this would help explain it.


Ever see this kind of treatment from police at BLM protest?

You're not going to show a picture of that unarmed woman they shot?

What does first amendment have to do with a private company?
Platform vs. Publisher.

Also, if you can't see how suspending Trump but letting this stay up only exacerbates things, I don't know what to say.

Twitter is allowing a tweet endorsing genocide to stay up.

I guess that's what happens when you break into the Capitol building with a bunch of rioters  and ignore the directions of armed police officers.
Are you suggesting she was peacefully protesting and an innocent victim? Was she behaving in a manner that showed respect for the law?
Should they have been offered a cup of tea and gently escorted out the building being that they were white folk and all? :laugh:

As with all these kinds of incidents, I'll reserve judgement until all the facts come out.

Fine but be consistent though. Next time an unarmed black person gets shot by the police for ignoring instructions/breaking the law/posing a physical threat , come down in the police's side.

Ok dude. Next time I hear about a group of African Americans shot as they video themselves breaking into and rioting in the Capitol building while ignoring the direction of armed people officers I'll be sure to post my support for the rule of law right here!  :laugh:

Just keep an open mind, wait till you get all the facts, judge each case on accounts from both sides, not single video clips, and try not to be colour-prejudiced.

Ironic, given how vanilla ISIS MAGA moron explicitly tweeted that black lives don't matter.

But let's wait for the facts...and ignore video evidence of her being a literal terrorist trying to attack the VP of the United States and other elected officials.

You're right dude! I'm sure it will eventually be revealed that this was all a conspiracy orchestrated by Antifa agitators and that poor woman was just an innocent victim caught in the crossfire.  I mean that would explain the cameras and posts on social media by Trump supporters wouldn't it?  :laugh:
What did Trump say happens when the looting starts?

The China one? That says women should NOT just be baby making machines? The article linked says religious extremism made the birth rate higher through young marriages, bigamy, and unplanned pregnancies. Saying those words is “genocide”? China has a rule saying marriages are one man and one woman. (So does the United States.) Islam says one man and four women. Sometimes a child has to marry a much older man to be his second, third, or fourth wife. Sad situation to see children - minors - put into these arranged marriages. Better to let them grow up and make the choice of who to be with on their own.

The meaning of 'genocide' has morphed in the last few years. Nowadays it can be applied to any person in power when some laws were enacted which some people claim led to the deaths of some people.  E.g. 'Boris Johnson's lack of deliberation over lockdown led to a genocide in the UK. '

Useful advice when applied to all incidents, No matter how cut and dry they might seem at first. Especially the way the media manipulates images/video etc nowadays. I'm sure you're intelligent enough not to be genuinely arguing against it.

Quite right dude. I'm sure the evidence will eventually prove she was a martyr to the cause of democracy!  :laugh:
