America is never the same again! This damage is far severe than 911!

2 ( +4 / -2 )

The DC cops and National Guard were totally unprepared, allowing white privilege to literally run amok in the halls of Congress - not that it doesn't usually, they just wear suits and ties... Compare this to the presence of every govt agency with a 3-letter moniker and a tear gas launcher that turn out when there are BLM protests. Some might even start to think that the cops are fellow travelers...

You can draw a straight line from the attempted overthrow of the government today through Bush 43 to Gingrigh and the Contract on America / Tea Party to Bush 41's Willie Horton Ad to Reagan's racist dogwhistles and undermining of government to Nixon's Southern Strategy to Goldwater/John Birch Society to McCarthy's anti-communist circus to Nixon's first congressional run in CA 1946.

The rest of the world, especially the Chinese, Russians and Iranians are laughing.

Now the Washington Times is saying the people who stormed the Capital building were Antifa "terrorists" disguised as Trump supporters. They claim a facial recognition software company compared facial images of Antifa protesters with those of the people who stormed the Capital yesterday. The facial recognition company mentioned by the Times says it has no idea where the Times came by this information. I think all anybody needs to do is look at the hundreds of images available of the DC protesters to see who they are and make their own judgement on the matter.

People all over the US are identifying people involved in the melee by looking at photos of the incident that are all over the internet. CNN even interviewed the fellow photographed sitting in Nancy Pelosi's chair with his feet propped up on his desk. A number of demonstrators have already been fired by their employers including one gifted Mensa who was wearing his company name badge. D'oh.

Yes, white privilege, the same white privilege that led hundreds of thousands of white people to their death in World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and other places, in the name of freedom, which included freedom for minorities.  You know, those small wars that kept the world from being overrun by Germany’s Nazi Party, Japan’s Imperial Army, and the like.  If these white people in the US armed services had so much white privilege, why were they sent to war in the first place?  Why not just send all Black and Hispanic people, and let the people with white privilege stay stateside? 

 

Oh by the way, tear gas was used at the capitol and one white woman was shot dead. Where was her white privilege?  But of course, an inconvenient truth is something that needs to be avoided and kept secret at all costs. Lastly, let's not forget about the law abiding individuals at the BLM riots in 2020. Here is a sample video from CNN . Surprisingly, CNN broadcast this as it does not fit their agenda. But then again, they had no alternatives since BLM were the only ones rioting all year long. This occurred in Baltimore, Maryland

This is equivalent to raping Lady Liberty. America truly won't be the same again after January 6, 2021. And the worse part about it is, it's been done by American fascists who subscribe to years of lies and conspiracy theories and hatred spoted about by idiot Americans, promoted by idiot Americans, and encouraged by a fascist who was planted in the WH by a foreign power thru an act of cyberwar.

America and all its ideals and democratic principals have been raped!

Obviously you never lost a loved one in the 9/11 terrorist attack. I am sure those that lost a parent, husband, wife, child, etc. feel that 9/11 was much worse. Think of the young children that will never see their father or mother again. Or the unborn that will never meet it's father or mother because they were killed in the 9/11 Muslim terror attacks. But of course that doesn't concern you, so why would you feel their pain?

The theory that Trump won by the power of a foreign country via a cyber war has been thoroughly debunked. The small incursion by the Soviets via cyber warfare played almost no part. Even election officials in Georgia assessing the recent runoff election for two US senate seats narrowly won by democrats emphatically said that just like the 2016 presidential election, there was no Russian cyber war interference in the Georgia senate election. Hillary Clinton lost because she was a failed candidate, full of controversy and not trustworthy. She even did not campaign in certain states taking for granted that she would get the vote of these states. She couldn't care less about those states, and she lost them. Anybody remember Whitewater, Bengazi, and other nefarious dealings? Even the very liberal Washington Post exposed her lies and deception.
