Re: Biden's supporters better understand that an issue agenda is the be all and end all
I think we all get that you want a Trump dictatorship. That’s why disqualifying him from holding office in the future is important.

Yawn. Just because Trump is careful to avoid explicitly calling for an attack doesn’t mean that he didn’t want it. He told them to be strong, that they could win. Futilely marching around the Capitol while Trump’s defeat was made final hardly qualifies.

So Trump possibly wanted an attack?

So, instead of answering the question you try and misrepresent the situation.

I guess the proves you have no honest defence.

Trump told them to attack, he just didn’t say so explicitlyl. There was no other way to win or to exert their strength that would affect the outcome. And you know that, that’s why you evade the point.

In other words you have no honest answer.

Hardly a surprise.

Re: Biden's supporters better understand that an issue agenda is the be all and end all
I think carrying on with the lies about fraud and insisting that they could still win - even after exhausting every legal and pseudo-legal and completely-made-up-but-we-pretend-it’s-legal avenue was more important. There was no way to win other than overthrowing the government.

And when you tell a bunch of violent white supremacist thugs that they can win if they are strong - and when they know that violence is the only way to win - what else can you expect?

Here is a transcript of the speech.

You should be aware that Pence had already (correctly) insisted that the Constitution didn’t allow him to send votes back. Even though Trump insisted otherwise in the speech. That McConnell had called for the votes to be accepted before the march. That the House could and would reject any objections. And - importantly - Trump did NOT go with the marchers.

While Trump called for peaceful protests - which they all knew - wouldn’t work - he also went and on about the alleged fraud. He fed the myth that Pence was a traitor, the myth that the Supreme Court was working against him.

We fight like Hell and if you don’t fight like Hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.

So are the violent white supremacists going to waste time marching around outside - and being ignored by the Senators and Representatives - or are they going to “fight like hell”? Maybe if Trump was there they might have stayed more or less peaceful. But he wasn’t. He said he would be, but he left them to their own devices. Nobody should be surprised at the consequences.

Re: Hey buddy, can you spare a dollar?
Some Republicans seem to actively want to spread the disease. It’s insane, but that is where US politics is today.

Re: Afhghanistan and Global Perspective
You do realise that’s nuts? No taxes mean no military - except for private militaries. No police. No Medicare or Medicaid. No Social Security. Just a different flavour of the Right.

It’s Liberty for the rich and the corporations (Jeffrey Epstein would be just fine). Oppression for people like you.
