Storming the capitol building by US home grown terrorists? WTF? It's a tragedy that this has happened, but Trump has been stoking this flame for years. Why?

As an American, I have lived as an adult under seven administrations, and honestly - it didn't make much difference what administration was running the White House, it was what was going on locally that affected me most: i.e. Blue laws in NC where you couldn't buy beer on Sundays, no Smoking on the beach in California, plastic bag laws, etc.

So why are folks so riled up in the States? Machismo? Political posturing? They're gonna take our guns? Look at me I'm a bad ass? What??

The premise of your opening post is extremely divisive in itself and shows your left wing bias

I personally thought that the US couldn't go any lower than W, certainly from my own perspective as a non US citizen. Trump though, has lowered the bar into the ground. A perfect "Hold my beer" moment.

What is worrying is that over 70 million people voted for him and no doubt a large percentage of those buy into his lies and dog whistling rhetoric.

I listened to James Comey on the radio last night being interviewed. Now, whilst I appreciate he himself is a divisive individual on both sides, he made a good point, that Trump should not be impeached and possibly even pardoned. Meaning, he will not have the public stage to further his message.

You can view / listen to the interview with Comey here:

Again,right wing bias that shows that Casinomeister is a right wing supporting site.
No room for other thoughts here. And once more for those who forget. I am not a lefty

Seems like there was more uproar over the Capitol building being stormed, than the billions of dollar damage that BLM have caused with their sustained rioting over months , seemingly encouraged by a lot of your MSM.

Its a mad world.

And Biden as president, dear god you guys are in trouble if thats the best the US has to offer.

No room for other thoughts? I see that you're very capable of sharing your thoughts just like mack is etc. There's no mod deleting right-wing messages or anything.

Will Bryan condemn Antifa and BLM activists as he has done with Proud Boys?

You are highly unlikely to be banned for posting your thoughts in here where as I am quite likely to be. That is the difference

Edit. I have been banned from posting in this thread other than editing a post that I have already posted.
And no Bryan I can not post my thoughts if they conflict with your views. You have already stopped me from replying in this thread.
Does that remind you of anything folks?

Nope. You can post your thoughts - no problem, but as soon as you start acting like a jerk - which you are right now - you'll be suspended from the thread until you can come back and have a discussion like a grownup. Like I said - this is my house - abuse it and lose it.

BLM protesting 'cause the police keep killing black people. Attack on the capitol hill 'cause the president encouraged it 'cause of election fraud that no one even proved. There's a difference.
If those attackers were black...you know it would've ended differently.

You've expressed plenty of conspiracies and they're letting you do it.

What a way to begin a supposed none partisan topic though? Two posts already exposes exactly what is wrong in here and why only one side gets banned and suffers the err of the moderators
Um since when have I waved a big pointy stick around here? :confused:

Sorry my view doesn't side with yours. I am sad now. :(

It reminds people that I am tired of putting up with your crap in this forum.

I have run this forum for nearly 23 years and have no problem having a debate in public, balanced and good natured. Unfortunately you are unable to do this - and you have been warned ad naseum about this. You are like a pitbull and just can't let go of being victimized somehow.

Your aggressiveness is unwarranted - it is not appreciated, and I won't put up with it. You rag on about "attack the idea - not the person" but it is you are the one who is vitriolic. Just reread what you wrote.

Conflict with my ideas? LOL - you don't know what my ideas are since I rarely share them :p - except for siding with reason, logic, science, and goodwill towards creatures big and small - you really don't know. So don't try to fit me into one of your boxes.

So let me get this right.

You are saying because police have killed black people which they should not have. That that is a perfectly reasonable excuse for all the supposed BLM groups to riot , loot cause untold damage.

Maybe I am wrong and would never condone the police brutality but if you see the way these protestors act every time then maybe it would explain why police take a heavy handed approach.

Yes police should treat everyone equal but a wrongful killing by them is no excuse for people to protest , burn a city and go home with a new tv.

In every thread you go on about racism etc. But never once do you even condemn the total disgusting behaviour at many of these BLM protests.

They caused far more damage than anything caused by the storming of the Capitol building.

War ended slavery. I don't know what you expect black people to do if cops don't stop killing them. Asking them nicely doesn't seem to work. You tell me your ideas how to stop killing black people.

You go on about racism.

Yet you believe Black people can do whatever they want as it is justified.

Two wrongs do not make a right.

But your attitude is also bordering racism the very thing you seem to hate. Remember it is not only white people that are racist.

I'm still asking your ideas how to stop killing black people. Gimme some good ones.
