LIVE COVERAGE of Rally for President Trump in DC! 01/06/2021
« on: January 06, 2021, 10:43:06 AM »
Greetings!

Live Coverage of the rally for President Trump in Washington, DC. Reporters on the ground there describe "An ocean of Patriots" gathered together at the Elipse area, and beyond.

Semper Fidelis,

And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

At least the denial.about the election being over should be wrapped up, and that's what the last thread was supposed to be about.

Trump conceded. How is it not over? Who are you going to install in there?

From the protests, I was particularly struck by this woman's testimony:

She should thank her stars she's not dead like that other poor woman or the cop. Dying for a fucking politician. What a fucking waste.

Hello, Jhkim. Indeed, the woman engaged with police brings risks--getting smacked with a baton or maced, or shot with pepper balls are the least of worries. She could have been shot and killed by the police like the woman that was a veteran and *unarmed*--she was shot from 20 feet away, while carrying a flag.

As for the woman in the video here, believing that the day's events were a "revolution" is unfortunately misguided. It is certainly not a "Revolution"--it was a rally and protest. As BLM and ANTIFA--and all of their media lapdogs and political patrons have lectured to the rest of America for months, people out protesting and rioting are in pain, and their cause is righteous! Their voices aren't being heard! That's what Leftists have been screeching at America for months--like Chris Cuomo, of CNN told us, "Who ever said that protests have to be peaceful and non-violent?"

So, there are other Americans that want their voices heard as well.

This isn't surprising to me in the slightest.

Semper Fidelis,

As for being heard... Trump is constantly in the headlines - his addresses and Tweets get constant attention. His following isn't some little-known underground movement -- they're constantly being discussed in both right-leaning and left-leaning media.

Your problem isn't that Trump and his supporters aren't being *heard*. The problem is that they are not being *believed*.

Screaming louder, breaking into buildings, and other extremes don't make them more believable and win people to their side. It makes them less believable.


As for Elizabeth from the video... She was a part of the day's events, and she believed it was a revolution. So I believe that's what motivated her. Here's another person speaking out about their participation:

Quote
CEO says breaching Capitol was ‘single worst’ decision of his life
...
“My decision to enter the Capitol was wrong, and I am deeply regretful to have done so,” Rukstales said in a statement. “Without qualification and as a peaceful and law-abiding citizen, I condemn the violence and destruction that took place in Washington.”

Rukstales also apologized to his family, colleagues and “fellow countrymen” for his actions.

“It was the single worst personal decision of my life,” the exec’s statement continued. “I have no excuse for my actions and wish that I could take them back.”

I remarked elsewhere, 'This is not how you First Amendment'. But watching the narrative spin on its tail from 'protests are good' to 'protests are bad' is pretty damn amazing.

Quick! Who said this?

"The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable. Activists take that discomfort w/the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable... that's the point."

That would be noted Trump fan Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

How about this one?

"I don't like violent protests, but I understand them. And those wagging their fingers against violent protests need to read up on their American history."

Why, that would be well-known alt-rightist Sally Kohn.

Quick, who had this headline?

"Riots are destructive, dangerous, and scary -- but can lead to serious social reforms."

Well, well, it's the clearly Koch-brothers funded Vox-dot-com!

You say you don't like it, fine. Fair enough. But you don't get to cry about how terrible 'the right' is for simply picking up the same weapons the left has been wielding nonstop for the last year.
