The news environment was different then. You didn’t have news outlets like we do now constantly turning every Biden win in being somehow bad for him, whereas Orange Traitor with 91 felony accounts, a court finding of him being a rapist, many fraud cases against his organizations proving actual fraud from him and his families companies, and yet the news paints him as a viable Republican Candidate. If Nixon had the corporate news and Republican Congress and Senate that we now have, I don’t think he would have resigned. Nixon was no hero, he tucked tail and ran, because the Republicans than weren’t quite as corrupt as they are now.
Oh, I see your mistake, January 6th was a violent insurrection by white nationalists trying to install a dictator as president. That was not a BLM protest.
The vast majority of BLM protests were peaceful. In fact, in many cases the police instigated the violence, such as tear gassing and moving protestors from a church, where a pastor was speaking, so that Orange Traitor could purposely hold a Bible upside down for a photo shoot. Or other instances of police brutalizing people for making the wrong turn and being black, not allowing them to turn around, as they were trying to do and leave. Unlike, an active insurrection, where the police, even under attack, largely handled that crowd extremely gently. That is until they tried to force their way into the chamber the electoral votes were being ceremonially counted. Despite many warnings that she would be shot, a woman did not heed the warnings, and resulted in her death. Orange Traitor has her blood on his hands, not the police officer that was not only sworn to protect the people evacuating the chamber, but to protect democracy. With her Air Force Security Police (now Forces) background, she must have known that was going to happen, but was likely hoping they wouldn’t shoot a girl.
As for the instances of looting, those were not instigated by BLM protestors, but often white nationalist instigators, like umbrella man, or opportunistic thieves. Many of those have been arrested and put in prison. Just as many of the insurrectionists have been imprisoned.
In many instances, when a police officer for themselves separated from his group, there were many BLM protestors that protected them, as they understand more than anyone the need to keep their protests peaceful.
Unlike white supremacists that thrive on their violence and will use any opportunity or excuse to harm or kill counter protestors to their nonsense, such as happened in Charlotte. Or even brutalize police as they did on January 6th, never forget.
Absurd ideas like taxing the rich the same as the workers and equality and no voter suppression?
I’ll believe it when I see it, as Mitch said otherwise while she was still alive. Then again, they may need to replace Mitch soon.
Speaking of Mitch, Governors are supposed to be able to pick who they want to replace Senators in their state. The Repub majority in Kentucky made sure to make it so that decision was taken from the current Democratic Governor, in that they are forcing him to pick a Republican should Mitch have to remove himself from the Senate for health or other reasons. A move that very likely proves Mitch is not healthy, if that was a concern the Repubs have. Interestingly enough, if any of the elections deserved more scrutiny it was Moscow Mitch’s election. There were a lot of anomalies involved in that particular election. However, perhaps to avoid both sides do it, the Democratic candidate didn’t challenge the result.
Really, so what you are saying is, Boebert is the perfect representation of the Right. Hmm, can’t really argue with that.
His age doesn’t matter, he’s sharp as a tack. Both my Grandparents lived to be nearly 89 each, and both were still more with it than any serving Repubs are today. Common, Repubs biggest complaint is Biden is smarter and keener than they are. As to the other, it helps to have actual evidence and not unfounded accusations.
Tuberville is the first one that comes to mind.
Yeah, but to small minded bullies that’s OK, it’s shorts and a sweatshirt that is horrible. Not being considerate to people that might be allergic to their smoke, well considerate and Republican are two words you rarely find used together.
I have long defended the USA. I will do so from threats from outside and threats inside the USA.
No, that was Boebert. Oh, wait, that was actually lude behavior in a public place.
