Thunderlips and Adel, are you even American? I know Mr. C is, but it seems like a good chunk of people losing their minds over this aren't even Americans.

I imagine it's more that they're the only ones willing to engage with you, American or not. As an American I wholeheartedly disagree with most things you've said here over the last few days here. And though I have started typing responses to you, I decided that it'd be a waste of my time, energy, and sanity.

So as an American, I'm content with them arguing with you.

We are in Korea, most of us here anyway. It is possible to be worried about violence from these extremists groups rather than the actual collapse of American society.
Are you really worried? The reason you're posting here is your genuine concern over extremism in America, not "win internet argument"?

You overplayed your hand and got caught up in the contradiction of what you claimed vs. your actions. Its a common mistake. Don't feel bad for having gotten caught.

Question- As an American, in response to this, what actions or preparations have you and your family taken and is this widespread?

Also, how would you compare all of this to the Vietnam era in terms of tension and genuine chance of upheaval?

It's mid January and you're already declaring victory? As I said, we are one Jussie Smollet away from this being completely blown off the front pages.



And Martini continues to flood the zone with bullsh*t!  Is that the name of your book?

I must not have been clear, Mr. DeMartino:
And though I have started typing responses to you, I decided that it'd be a waste of my time, energy, and sanity.

I just came here to make you aware that I exist. A person that disagrees with you and agrees with these potential 'non-Americans'. BUT, and again I say, because reading comprehension is godawful on this site: I decided that [arguing with you would] be a waste of my time, energy, and sanity.

I'm curious as to what thought process in your brain allows you to declare something "bullshit" that is a prediction for Feb. 2021, when it is Jan. 13th.

Are you seriously suggesting this will be the BIG story in America for the next three weeks? Are you seriously suggesting a Jussie Smollet/Michael Richards or George Floyd type story wouldn't instantly blow this off the front pages?

If that happened the Dems would instantly pivot from impeachment back to wearing Kente cloth.

Some Americans remembered their history lessons from previous generations. The similarities between some Americans thinking now and 1930’s germany is apparent. I also am disgusted but not surprised with the hypocrisy of trump and his mindless followers who are so intent to overthrow an election based on their own lies and propaganda. They claim blue lives then kill a cop, they claim freedom and try to destroy it and they claim authoritarian rule over democracy. Yes I am American, and I have serious misgivings about returning home with my family.

You do realize that if you turned off the news and its steady diet of fear porn, that is deliberately designed to addict you to its content by appealing to certain emotional sectors of your brain you wouldn't be nearly as concerned, right?

You also realize that for every parallel, there are like 10 reasons it is NOT the same right? Are you looking at the reasons its not or just focusing on one end like a stupid person? You aren't stupid, right?

At least 67% of America doesn't think we're in 1930s Germany. Heck many on the left think that's overblown. Calm the F down.

“Gobbledygook”.  I think that’s the name of Marty’s book which is just a collection of randomly thrown together stream of consciousness diatribes.

Yup. This is definitely all about genuine concern for the safety of America and not settling personal internet scores.

I mean, I knew white people who thought the same thing with BLM protests. I'd be just as equally worried, which basically means not at all unless I'm dumb enough to drive right into the middle of it.

Welp, since you called me out by name twice, you opened this can of worms so you don't get to call it off. If you didn't want to deal with me, should have stayed quiet and not mentioned it.

I just want to say that the post above is a perfect example of cognitive dissonance- Pertinent questions that 1) seeks to clarify whether the person's actions match their rhetoric (i.e. If you say hurricanes are coming, but you're renting a beachfront for the weekend, then don't expect people to take your view seriously) 2) Whether you have put this in any historical context regarding danger and threat and rather than addressing them, the person just shuts down because they understand that addressing them would make their point not as strong.

Those ARE important considerations for the topic. Your response to them has basically been to jam your fingers in your ears and declare yourself above it all...after you chose to come down into the muck.

You don't get to call someone out then declare that they should leave you alone and that you won't respond. That's what a coward does. If you're going to dish it out, be prepared to take it.

Some people would rent a beachfront property when a storm is coming though; meteorologists, storm chasers, surfers, trumpers if the storm is from msm....

Dude we're talking normal people, not specialists. Are you the equivalent of one of those? Remember, YOU are the one calling this some sort of serious insurrection/coup attempt. Are you behaving like it really was? No. You're behaving like someone who claims an INSANE hurricane is coming when really you're getting a strong storm that isn't even a tropical depression, all while planning to chill at your beachfront property. Like, have your actions match your words.

That's the tell for why this "INSURRECTION!!!!!" stuff is full of crap- You aren't acting like you should be in a real insurrection and serious threat. You are acting like what the event was- A minor kerfluffle that is great fodder for political debates and scoring points.

As I said, mockery was the better approach. Instead you went with dialing it up to 11 and you overplayed your hand.

This is the point where most conservatives will finally admit that they can't defend this seditious, violent bullshit anymore and just walk away.

This is also the point where soulless, ghoulish morons double down on being wrong because they can't admit defeat.

Quote
The U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff reminded American forces Tuesday of their oath to defend the Constitution following the attacks on the Capitol building last week.

The letter was addressed to the joint force, which is made up of about 1.3 million active-duty service members and more than 811,000 National Guardsmen and reservists — all of whom swore an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

"The violent riot in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 was a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol building, and our Constitutional process," the memorandum said. "We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection."

Yes, the proportionate response to what happened is to declare it sedition and insurrection. Lets follow it up with some drone strikes and mass hangings.

The scumbags who beat the cop deserve felony murder charges. The people who brought guns into it with the intent to go after the cops deserve stiff felony charges. The people taking selfies and vandalizing? Charge them with unlawful assembly, criminal trespass, vandalism and larceny.

But is this truly about safeguarding the Republic or vengeance?
