Anyways, this story is already dying. The market is in chaos and it looks like Americans are more interested in hearings over Robinhood than Trump atm.
1. The market is not in chaos.
2.  More Americans are interested in trump's impeachment than in Robinhood by a country mile.

2. Yes, more Americans care about impeaching Trump than their own money.  :huh:

Just take the L. Game Stop just killed all momentum for impeachment.

Fmr. SEC commissioner compares Gamestop to Capitol Riots.

They're trying to divide in the hopes the Orange Man Bad crowd will support them.  Why are they using this specific tactic? Ask yourself that.

I think you know the answer and there's already a kernel of doubt in your head. You can still think Trump was awful while not trusting the powers that be and their media lackeys.

Yep, if there's one figure that the left has traditionally rallied behind, it's former SEC commissioners. You've proven your point impeccably: Wall Street billionaires angry = something something Trump = Trump critics are stupid.

Your view of Trumpism as a completely top-down phenomenon is probably why you think this is so ridiculous.

Every cult has a leader at the top - go figure.

Actually I'm pointing out that they're the ones using "something something Trump" in the hope that the TDS crowd will be persuaded.

That didn't work. Now they're going to use a snake in leftist clothing in Liz Warren to make cosmetic changes to Wall St. while also kneecapping the little guy.

Trumpism is as much if not more top-to-bottom as vice-versa. Trump was hyper-responsive to his base.

Very interesting doco! featuring interview with ENRIQUE TARRIO, chairman, Proud Boys

An account of  Jan 6th as it unfolded, told by those who were there. Sarah Ferguson confronts some of those who answered Donald Trump's call to overturn the election result.

For those interested in how these events have been viewed outside of the US and facts rather than spin!

https://www.abc.net.au/4corners/downfall:-the-last-days-of-president-trump/13110382.

It depicts in detail with video evidence and testimony the planning and organisation involved.

It wasn't a "they". It was an individual photographer from national Geographic who witnessed the events but qualified his statements with "people might think I sensationalising" and sure enough you did!  :laugh:

Nonetheless, "He compared it to Weimar Germany"  not "they"! Words matter Marti!

One minute they're a chaotic mob. Then they have random blunt objects then they're military.

Get your story straight. I guess dipshit Euros and gullible sap Commonwealthers fall for this kind of horseshit. Of course this could well describe a bunch of ultras.

Seriously, how easily manipulated are you? Did you look at any of this critically? Did you question any of it? Or did you just lap it up like the Trump supporters you claim to be brainwashed?

Did you spot any Antifa members Marti?  :laugh:

"WE'RE not saying it's like Weimar Germany, we're just choosing to interview this guy and use sympathetic framing, filters, angles, etc. But WE aren't saying it."

Was he sensationalizing or not? If he wasn't then he's an idiot. If he was then your supposed fact-based report chose to give a platform to sensationalists. What else is sensationalized?

Two posts in and you've already abandoned this great work of journalism.

Fact based on the actual footage they depicted and the actual participants that they interviewed. Factual testimony!
You've had clowns on this forum claiming these events were orchestrated by Antifa. I was wondering if you concur with Hangkook77 on that and whether you saw any evidence to support it.  :laugh:

Come to think of it I believe you've made that same comparison before! :laugh:

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.


Is it only sensationalizing when someone else makes the comparison ?

Testimony is evidence, not facts. It all depends on the level of credibility one attaches to that testimony (and assuming that none of it has been selectively edited/manipulated by the broadcaster.)

Maybe that's something they don't teach in Australia, only in "dumb" America.
