After what we've already seen in other threads related to politics i can't believe anybody could be dumb enough to start another one. It's amusing how months and months of rioting don't bother some people but one day of it offended somebody enough to start this thread.

I find it interesting that you object to this thread, given that you have made (according to the BD search engine) 446 posts in political threads, or posts with political comments, since Dec. 1, 2020. I won't take offense at your calling me dumb, because you are entitled to your opinion, and it is formally possible you are right. I haven't read enough of your posts to know if you are insightful or not, thus I have to leave my dumbness as a possibility.

May I note that this board is called the "NONEVERYTHING" board, and as indicated by the myriad posts in the past (many of which are yours), it is acceptable to post political topics here.

Because you are clearly highly involved in the BD discussions of political topics, I will submit for discussion the following points in response to your comment that "one day of it [rioting] offended somebody enough to start this thread".

1] As stated in two previous posts by me in this thread, the violence of the riots in some of the BLM events did indeed offend me. I think that people had cause to demonstrate against racial bias, but I do not think that violent acts in destruction of property or hurting people is ever acceptable.

2] There, however, is a significant difference between the riots this summer, and the attack on the Congress. The President did not cause the BLM type violence. He condemned it, as he should have. The President of the USA was the cause of the violent acts and the invasion of the Capital building. AND, he did not (and still has not) indicated that the events were wrong. This is amazing, is it not? That the President of the US would actually incite his followers to attack Congress.

3] It is the role of the President in causing this event, and the target (Congress and the US electoral system) of his actions, that make this event so noteworthy. It is what makes it different than the riots this summer. And that is the point of my first post, and hopefully the major point of the thread.

Several people here, rather than addressing the main point, the actions of the President in the riots on Congress, instead have used the ploy of saying "well, you didn't say anything about the black riots this summer".
It is avoiding the point, and trying to cast aspersions upon any poster that thinks that the President did a really bad thing. I won't bore you with the Latin name for those types of arguments, but the technique is well known.

I would ask you one question: Do you think that the actions of the President in the riots on Congress were wrong? Yes or No.

Dwr,
Ummm, that's not the point of the post. The point is not about Biden. The point is about the role of the PRESIDENT of the USA fomenting a riot among his supporters that attacked the US Capitol bldg.

Aside: (...and please do not answer in this thread, just think about the question.) What is wrong with a black woman being president?
I guess we’ll all find out !

Old timer thank you for a thoughtful post. Thanks for not responding by calling others names even though some on here that is their first reaction to those who don't agree with them. I am talking about both sides.
I have many friends who are Republicans who have bought into Trump's lies about voter fraud. I just tell them when they can show me a court case that shows significant voter fraud enough to overturn the election I will talk to them about it. I am sick and tired of hearing conspiracy theories. They haven't talked to me about this since because there aren't any court cases that prove significant voter fraud. Which a good thing in that it probably preserves our friendship.
Just so you know I am not a democrat. I am an independent! I don't like the far right or the far left. I do admit I don't like Trump and I am glad he will soon be gone!

NV......,

Thank you for your thoughtful words. I too have many Republican friends; after all I live in a rural area in the Midwest, and I hunt and fish. As anybody who knows the election demographics would understand, most rural areas are solidly Republican. The difference between my friends, however, and some of the folks here on BD, is that we can disagree and discuss civilly, and then go have a beer and talk fishing, dogs, and the latest crop yields.

I have been surprised at theoverall attitude, and general lack of courtesy, when politics is discussed, of many of the BD group. Still I find it interesting to read their views, because I think it's important to understand views different than ones own. Behind their vehemence I can see an indication that they truly do care, but I do not understand how they can ignore facts. (Anything that disagrees is "fake news".) My lack of understanding is probably my own ignorance. Still I learn something almost every time I read BD.

Actually, I don't think that Jesus has anything to do with it.
And you are obfuscating the point again. Fairly typical of your 400+ recent political posts, eh?
It's a technique for discussion, but not a very good one.

    Indeed. Thank you President Trump. Brought to light the corruption and hypocrisy in our political system. Led many of the far left to show their true anti-American values and socialist perspectives. Brought to light the corruption and loathing within our media and social media magnates. Put America and American citizens first. Eliminated or modified some antiquated and BS environmental regulations. Pissed off those happy with the status quo (craploads of corruption on both sides). And survived 4 years of non stop hatred and horrible witch hunts while getting more shit done than many other recent presidents.

    and yup, he’s an asshole, but he was/is about America first. So, I am thankful for his work.

    What happened in Portland was wrong. What happened in Washington today was WRONGER! (Yeah, I know English, just making a point.)

    There were no molotov cocktails thrown at LEOs.
    There were no pre-staged pallets of bricks to be used to throw at LEOs.
    There were no frozen bottles of waters to be used to throw at LEOs.
    There were no "fireworks" being aimed at LEOs.
    There were no baseball bats being used as weapons against LEOs.
    There was no pepper spray being used against LEOs.
    There was no arson.
    There was no beating and killing of innocent civilians.
    There were no local businesses shut down and forced out of business.
    There was no occupation of entire city blocks.
    There were no black-on-black murders that the media shuffled away
    There were no masks being used to hide identities.

    Is that why the angry tourists in DC were "wronger"? Because they demonstrated a different type of "riot" technique than you fantasized would play out?

    I suspect, but do not know, that they were likely from the far left fringe groups.

    You mentioned the above in explaining away your <paraphrased> 'Portland riots were basically ok' silliness. Why not just use "outside agitators" to keep the "far left fringe groups" totally out of the picture in a 70% left-wing city? A city that had 2 democrats (no republicans) to choose from in their most recent Mayoral election

    I would ask you one question: Do you think that the actions of the President in the riots on Congress were wrong? Yes or No.

    This question is a leading question. It is presenting as fact that the President was actively involved in what transpired during a peaceful demonstration (a peaceful demonstration that involved hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Americans throughout DC and the Capitol Grounds) that was used by a relative handful of outside agitators as a cover for their location-specific B&E escapade at the Capitol building.

    Some of these BD guys have already caught on to your antics, OT. More will follow as your ability to manipulate the words into foredrawn conclusions is pointed out.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    and for those of you who wondered why I didnt use "looting" in my comparison above? some of the B&E'ers did borrow a couple of items. But this has already been shown to be a normally accepted prank that dates back to Hilly borrowing complete WH China service collections and Willys' staff borrowing the "W" keys from all the keyboards.
