    1. @Shane Alan the Qanon Shaman has stated, on record, that he is a shaman for Q. But go ahead and keep parroting GQP lies like a good little red hatted sheep

    2. It doesn’t matter we need a 2nd civil war it the only way to ended it and it doesn’t matter who win it about showing the damage when we demonized the other side it on both ended that is suppressing true growth and the media/politics are causing it. War is coming the barrier is soo thin it will break and both side is going to pay because they don’t want to listen. So don’t tell me it one side that are doing it and the leaders should not being playing game they we breaking logic we build for soo long because we live on hate n intolerance so I can’t wait to then because as I see it siblings against siblings, parent against parent, and child against parents sickness across the world and war and conquest within and outside nations food supplies running short everything that is said in the Bible it like hatred is running high

    3. @Thyalwaysseek right. And the people who attacked the capitol and smeared feces on the wall were just regular tourists

  1. Wow.. 8 months later the Republicans throws a rally for a Qanon insurrectionist. Tells you everything you need to know about the Republicans at this point on.

    1. @Unavailable Now Ur wrong too. America loving, patriotic, constitution supporting, America-first folks r known as TRUMPONIANS, aka JACKSONIANS.

    2. “At this point on”, gives the impression that you have recently changed your mind about the GOP. Thank you. Biden is really going to shine if given half a chance. He’s taking a stand against a worldwide serial killer and some people want to BOO him for the sake of stupidity and conspiracies. He’s really showing his wisdom and using his experience to help the American people. Listen to the President and go get vaccinated even if you are not required to by your workplace. It’s humanitarian and its patriotic.

    1. @Sean Schisler none . How many caught cases? Smh.
      Just because you’d do it. Dosen’t mean that others who don’t think like you will. That’s just illogical to me.
      Violent actions would reflect negatively on the movements that you demonize. And it wouldn’t be supported worldwide. And yet it is…odd.
      Common sense dictates.

    2. @Thyalwaysseek what? You mean the white power thugs that caused trouble at the summer protests last year. You mean Proud Boys who go looking for people to terrorize, and get surprised when their victims fight back

    4. @Souls_Reborn Only one side is distorting the truth and undermining US democracy by rejecting free and fair elections. The US right wing as it is made up by Trumpist deplorables lead by a narcissistic sociopath dreaming of a dictatorship.

  2. Daily Reminder: On January 6, 2021, Impeached former President Trump attacked America during a joint session of congress certifying the 2020 Election.

    1. @Scott Manerez
      Regardless of what the Dems or liberals did in damage or lives lost, nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to the cretinous idiots who tried to overthrow our democracy, our legitimately elected president and the loss of life of capital police. Not only that, your willful stubbornness in acquiring a vaccination for Covid-19 is putting the nation at risk.

    5. @Chris name one city that has been burned down by ANY group in America. Link a headline from anywhere, paper, website, video…anything!
      When people with your mindset feel threatened they will take any measure to feel safe again; they’ll twist facts, lie, demonize their fellow human beings, and even engage in discrimination and crime.

  3. We said then…”if we are changed..from 9-11. If we become as extreme, as radicalized & as righteously pious as AlQuiada… THEY WIN

    1. and always a fair and balanced approach, as well. Easy to see why President Obama gave him so much responsibility at such a young age.

    5. @Souls_Reborn You are clearly distressed by all the bad stuff going on. You should talk these matters over with someone you trust. Someone that knows and loves you might be a better way to think through how to move forward. May God bless you and keep you safe.

    1. That’s sure what it seems like to me. If Republicans in the House and Senate would have stood up to Trump, there would be reason to continue to respect them as a political party. But, they all threw in with Trump and were happy to help him try to install himself as “President for Life.” They’re traitors to their Oaths of Office and traitors to America. They ALL need to go.

  4. Republicans have gone from calling them Terrorists on 9/11 to Tourists on January 6 attack of the Capitol. Let that sink in.

    1. It was a protest that had agent provocateurs stoking tensions which led to a few violent assaults, some property damage, and the murder of an AF vet by a member of the overglorified Capitol police.

    2. It doesn’t matter we need a 2nd civil war it the only way to ended it and it doesn’t matter who win it about showing the damage when we demonized the other side it on both ended that is suppressing true growth and the media/politics are causing it.

  5. Given that we got to this point in large part due to social media, we might want to factor that in when thinking about solutions.

    1. No not social media. Internet freedom is under attack. It has opened information to the citizens of the globe and connected us in ways not possible before. Dictators and wannabes are threatened by this citizen to citizen conversation. Monopolies are everywhere. But, this is the one that they just have to break up?

    2.

    4. @kathy perry I agree with you on one thing: social media, in the abstract, is a dictator’s worst nightmare. One can understand from that premise why people like Putin have spent so much of the last decade trying to break it and spoil it.

    1.

  6. They should not be allowed to live down what they have done to Americans and Democracy any time in the near future.

    1. @Tim Cowan ah. I see. It’s not that you don’t read them, it’s you’re not even aware you agreed to a contract. Please seek legal counsel before you get yourself in serious trouble for breaking contracts

    2. Most of these extremists are anti-vaxx so it wont be long before they start getting thinned out. And then when they actually want that hate war it will be easy to exterminate them.

    3. @Ratana Long from what studies and polls I’ve seen, it’s about 25-30% of the population. Not insignificant, but they’re certainly not the majority. Each day, their numbers drop
