Well, since all the threads are devolving into that anyway, lets see how they stack up.

Trump:

Some windows were broken

Cops supposedly shot some woman*lacking details as of yet.

Some hilarious guy walked off with a podium and selfies were taken.

BLM:

Multiple arson fires

An actual Putsch tooknplace in Seattle resulting in a murder*( did we ever find out who killed who?)

Businesses were destroyed and looted who had nothing to do with floyds murder or mistreatment of others.

BLM frozen bottles of water, bricks and other items were thrown at police. People with opposing views or even people who didn't want to vocally express BLM views attacked. BLM "protestors" wore masks to conceal their identities. Democrat mayors told police to stand down and refused national guard help. When told to disperse BLM "protestors" refused and instead burned more shit down.

Well there is only this one event and I didn't mention the occupation that took place in the snowflake zone nor did I mention the murders.

"Trump and McConnell are talking about what occurred today at the Capitol. Neither has mentioned looters or BLM."

Probably because they are not commenting on how the press is handling this today. My first comments about BLM were in relation to how the press covered both events but thanks for playing cuck.

And I have said that the rioters in all these events should be arrested. That includes the people that made it into the Capital Building today.

I'm at least consistent in my opinion of rioters and others across the political spectrum.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion, some of them throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades.

Trump spent nearly an hour in the bunker, which was designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks, according to a Republican close to the White House who was not authorized to publicly discuss private matters and spoke on condition of anonymity. The account was confirmed by an administration official who also spoke on condition of anonymity.

The abrupt decision by the agents underscored the rattled mood inside the White House, where the chants from protesters in Lafayette Park could be heard all weekend and Secret Service agents and law enforcement officers struggled to contain the crowds.

---This was back in May-june 2020.

Sonthe difference between these two events was that today's they were successful at storming the Capitol, the BLM were contained by the SS/police.

It was still threatening enough leaders were evacuated to bunkers.

Also, blm probably would have looted more than a podium and taken selfies considering theirntrack record.

Now for those calling this a coup, wpuld you say the same of the actual coup in Portland?

plus the IMMENSELY CRITICAL point... TRUMP is the sole person responsible here for all of this sedition... if Rubio or Cruz or Kasich had won in 2016 & lost to Biden, do you think 50 million people would think the election had been rigged? would those Rs even have suggested it once? rather than all year long?

Trump didn't say 'go home' tonight until it was already ending, plus praised them... do you really doubt that he was thrilled when he watched it begin & seeing it disrupt things?

and what Dem leader encouraged the CHAZ formation?

what Dem leader was the motivation for the tiny fraction of BLM who rioted/looted?

This " coup attempt" was pretty weak.The supposed leader of the coup told everyone to go home, and they did.

You would think someone with his resources would mount a better attempt at a Putsch, and not tell people to go home after they broke a window.

This was a political statement gone too far.Not even that far really, this is on the level of school prank.


Trump will not be president in a few weeks. However he will likley be the most powerful singlenpolitical figure in the country and a thorn in the side of President Harris.

Bottom line he is loved by many, hated by more.Obama is still a powerful political figure and never fornthe support that Trump did.

People with guns storming the Capitol building to force a different political outcome, would be political violence. Through out this discussion, I feel you are either purposefully or unwittingly constructing impossibly narrow definitions of what constitutes different things. Subversion, coup attempt and now "political violence". Yes, this was political violence, just like all the BLM riots of 2020 CHAD and CHAZ and Oregon and Washington, 2020 was an explosion in political violence in the USA. I am actually familiar with the definition since discovering Peter Turchins work. This event will be recorded as an instance of political violence, you can take it to the bank.

"The supposed leader of the coup told everyone to go home, and they did"


the coup attempt has been in progress for months, this was his latest effort... & he watches TV all day long, he would've especially been watching that day, he did no rush to discourage, 'go home' calls were well past the peak & definitely from pressure & he still praised them for it

disrupting the vote WAS his desire, made crystal clear plus him tweeting how states wanted to change their electors (which some traitors in legislatures DID... he posted a letter from them... highlighting signatures)

just things didn't go as well as his delusional mind hoped

read his tweets for the last 2 months... will take you many hours, but quite clearly has been an attempt to overturn the election and WITHOUT caring about facts in the slightest

Reality is truth, however, it is not always a known, which is where perception plays the part of destroyer.

If perception is going to be changed proof is an absolute necessity.

This is not what we are as a country is a perceptual falsehood being played when our country has become exactly what it is at present. There was only one thing that could have changed that perception and it was rejected.

Unfortunately, unity is out of the question, the Country is in for increasing difficulty. The winds of time have eroded its foundation.
