Rodney King didn’t die IIRC....
“...accused in the beating death of Rodney King...”
I think he later died but nit as a result of this incident...
All of these articles assume there will be honest elections in the future. That is based on facts not in evidence.
“Not since Abraham Lincoln was smuggled into Washington”
I’d forgotten that bit of history.
Yes, as I recall he died in 2012. Don’t these people do any research?
Guess town hall needs to do some research.
😂 We think too much alike.
I think this stuff is at the Pollyanna level now.
We had people rally at the Capitol. They were waved in by law enforcement, who helpfully moved barriers aside. The protesters carefully walked in between the velvet ropes as they proceeded into the government building.
Overall assessment is that some protesters (probably ANTIFA infiltrators) did a few thousand dollars in damages. And one government employee shot a woman in the neck and killed her.
Pretty much everyone in America condemns this depraved violence. I’m told it’s the worst civil disturbance in our nation’s history. It seems to have justified a massive crackdown and purge of all Trump supporters from social media. It has fueled the call for both a Second Impeachment and also the use of the 25th Amendment.
You think Democrats are scared?
You think Patriots feel emboldened?
You think Patriots feel more comfortable expressing their anger?
You think the media feels any compulsion to be honest and even-handed?
There isn’t going to be any sort of accounting and this ship isn’t going to turn around any time soon.
They haven’t seen our rage yet. Instead they saw a bunch of protesters being invited into the capitol building by the police and proceeded to do “Animal House” style hijinks. These congress critters, mostly all of them from both sides of the aisle, feign outrage about it detailing how scared they were that citizens came into “their” building with flags and compliment the “bravery” of capitol police that murdered an unarmed women. Oh no, they have yet to see our rage and when they do their responses won’t be the phony ones we are seeing now but will be rooted in reality.
Understatement of the year.
I was at the capital at the time. What you are hearing is 100% false. There were a few hundred people there consisting of grandmas and children walking around taking photos.
There were zero arrests. There were no injured cops. Only one injured was the girl who was shot dead. Some got pepper spray because they were too close.
The media was lying. I’ll share videos soon.
Censorship is coming. If those in power effectively invite illegal immigrants into the country, and they murder, rape, commit crimes, drain our welfare system and bring in drugs, are those in power responsible?
Nancy Pelosi thought that Donald Trump’s first impeachment wouldn’t hurt the Democrats. But the Democrats had a net loss of about 10 House seats, pending one election in New York that hasn’t been decided. This push for impeaching Trump for a second time proves Democrats aren’t scared. But Democrats do make mistakes that can cost them.
“directed anger is far more effective than submissive acceptance of smug authoritarianism.”
The usually sedated conservative writers are starting to get uppity. Interesting.
It may quickly turn out that declaring a virtual war on your political enemies is just a one sided suicide pact.
Who really has power?
My friend was there also...she says similar.
This whole thing is a Shakesperian play directed by Donald J. Trump. He wants the cabal to take off their masks so the American people will finally understand what is going on. And oh how it is happening. The kray kray is on display. I don’t think too many people are going to be that upset when the President puts a stop to this nonsense and restores order.
These were disenfranchised voters. Not dissimilar to “taxation without representation.” And if the election fraud isn’t fixed, it’s disenfranchisement in perpetuity. Not really about Trump at all. In fact, the breach had started before Trump even gave his speech (he was 30 minutes late, so the choreography of Antifa didn’t work out). There is at least one video of the cops shepherding the protestors in and they appeared very peaceful.
