Someone was posting pictures a page ago. Letís not forget it all started with images like this on Wednesday. Not exactly a sign of a peaceful protest.

There were never peaceful protests in 2020 (and now it passes to 2021 it seems). First #blm with the help of corona ruined small-time businesses and cities, now pent-up aggression further jeopardizes the safety of a nation. America is just another boiling pot, like so many countries on the globe.

But in all this people forget that's it's not some random dudes stirring the populace to such extremes, but politicians and media. How can there be no hostility, if all you read in the news is about blaming the other side.

These people might be an aggressive mob, but they didn't come out of thin air...

This is (obviously) completely false.

Peaceful demonstrations don't generate 1/10th the media attention or social media attention as a protest where violence breaks out. That's it. Not that there's anything wrong with the media covering violent protests, but watching the news isn't suppose to be used as a measuring tool.

but as precedent was set... looting, setting crap on fire and assaulting people during a protest is not violent.

So hence all the riots erupted over another dead black career robber, all protests therefore are peaceful.

Oh, no, it is. It's just that somewhere between 90-92% of the protests for George Floyd were not violent (like, that's the actual statistic put forth by the justice department when they investigated it,) and many of the protests that were deemed riots had the cops instigate and solely propagate the violence at them. I think it was somewhere around 2% were planned riots, and that was pretty evenly split between protesters and counter-protesters?

And the ones that were violent were covered and called out pretty consistently by all media outlets. The reports that right-wing trolls like to meme are the ones that had the phrase "violence erupts after mostly-peaceful protest," while ignoring that the phrase itself has a timeline of "Not violent -> There's now violence." Or, basically, they ignore that the other way to write what they are reading is "The protest was peaceful until it was violent." And then ignore that there is typically evidence of what incited the violence later in the report.

So in other words, no, you're pretty wrong there Kip, insurrection and riots are still not peaceful. Sorry to say. But if there was a right-wing media report saying, "The protest at the White House was peaceful until the attempted coup," then they would not be wrong. The stupid coup was, in fact, the violent incident, and until it was attempted the protest wasn't violent.

didn't the riots over that dead recidyvist, and some other dead career criminals were reported as mostly peaceful, even though mainstream crap showed footage of dorks looting and burning? ALL of them, statistics aside.



Like this hilarious image?

Also, as being on the right, I am always right. me and few others in different circles, were right that pulling such crap like the 6th won't do good for the movement and... it did no good, just as predicted. all the variables, all the infiltrated antifa, boogdorks and other idiots and bullcrap aside.

What I am hoping for in the next few days and to culminate on the 20th, is either boogers pulling something stupid, which according to what I saw, is at least planned, or FBI going full NKVD mode and doing mass arrests.
if there isn't a suicide bomber attack attempt from the boogtards, I'll be severely upset.

And please define "right wing media", because all I see is morons running their mouths. not just on "right wing", but on all sides. but, back to the supposed "right wing media" that I'm aware of.
Infowars is a comedy show.
Nationalfile.com is like infowars, only if infowars was born retarded and then repeatedly beaten on the head with a wet dishrag, because think all you want about alex jones, at least he's entertaining. Editor of nationalfile Tom Pappert by the way had a mental breakdown when Pence didn't answered his call. It was absolutely hilarious crapshow to witness. I am contemplating of making a site dedicated to him in the same manner that a certain Chilean did to Mundane Matt. That fat kansas dork is a gift that keeps on giving, shame I'm banned from their discord for "bullying" a norse neopagan.
Fox is disney owned, enough said. And I don't follow it anyways.
What else is there...?
O yeah the Kent State gun thot with her Liberty Hangout. she sucks and is still riding her 15 minutes hard.
Sargoy is a britdork lolbert/liberal or whatever the bleep he is. one of those dumbass youtube "skeptics" which I can't stomach.

Crowder could be it, he is the most sensible of the bunch even when he does stupid crap. however I haven't watched his crap in over two years or so, when I got annoyed at him promoting his subscription thing with the mugs. The mugs look like crap though.


And at this point, since I was banned from most major pro-trump fan gathering places for "blackpilling", whatever the bleep that is, only western talkshow/news media I consume is the comedy podcast The Dick Show, run by satirist Dick Masterson. who is a lolbert. but the show is hilarious and they have interesting people calling in, like McAfee, before he was arrested.

2nd impeachment. First time in history.

More importantly, what does impeachment have to do with peaches? I have never understood this and peaches are one of my favorite fruits although grapefruit is still number 1, so I am fortunate that impeachment isn't called imgrapefruitment because that would taint my favorite fruit.

I thought the reason was maybe because after a president is impeached it leaves him more vulnerable, sort of like how a peach is soft and vulnerable, not just in a physical sense but also in a psychological and poetic sense.

Fact 1

Impeachment articles include the president's attempted coercion of Georgia's sec of state to fraudulently decertify Georgia's election results.

Fact 2

Georgia is the peach state.

Coincidence?

Consequences are piling up on Trump after he incited a mob to attack the Capitol. Second impeachment is the first of course. But in addition everyone is starting to cut ties with Trump and his organization.
- The entirety of New York City terminates ALL existing business contracts with Trump organization
- Deutche Bank says it will never do business with Trump or Trump Organization again
- Stripe is no longer processing credit card payments
- Shopify stopped operating online stores for the Trump Organization
- PGA is pulling golf tournaments from his properties
- Signature Bank said it had started closing Trump's personal accounts
- Twitter has banned Trump permanently, so has Snapchat

Snow is hitting the fan, hard, and while he is going down, he is apparently taking the entire Trump Organization down with him. His children must be PISSED

Maybe I'm looking a gift horse in the mouth but I really wish the Senate would vote to remove him, even though he's out in less than a week anyway. Instead the conviction won't even happen in time.

I don't think the difference in the portrayal of the protests is based on red and blue, right and left wing. I think it's based on class. Trashing a standard neighborhood is ok, but trashing the capitol isn't.

I want to see the boogtards bleed. let's see how 75k armed boogers with no training, or heavy support, just their punisher patches and crappy bargain bin AR "builds" try to take and hold DC.
