Truths and Consequences

First, some truths:

Is there anyone disputing that this is not the truth:

This is also true, but not the whole truth:

The whole truth would be that "the jury includes his co-conspirators and people too cowardly to do what they know to be the right thing."

And that is the truth. We send men and women in our armed forces into harm's way and have for every single day of the last nineteen years, but some senators are too, oh, too afraid of being defeated in their next election to stand up and be counted. The Founders of this country pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor; our current senators cannot muster the courage to risk losing their jobs.

One thing is certain: History will take note of what they do. Will their descendants be proud of them or not mention them.. it's their choice.

Now for the consequences:

A Georgia prosecutor said Wednesday that she has opened a criminal investigation into “attempts to influence” last year’s general election, including a call in which President Donald Trump asked a top official to find enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

I have little hope that Teflon Don is going to be held to account for this. If anyone else had tried to pressure election officials to change the count, they'd already be in custody.

But not Trump, the master criminal.

what did we learn last summer:

Black people can Loot Burn and Murder
because of racial Injustice" and the Press and the Liberals will say it is ok.

'Cause nothing works to protest the death of a career criminal who died of a Fentayl overdose while being restrained by police like burning and looting several blocks of a large Denocrat run city.

And, of course, ther will be no investigation of the folks who do that, 'cause that is an approved "protest". THe police won't check cell phone pings, nor use facial recognition to try to find those folks

We learned that if (mostly) white people protest, they will be prosecuted as terrorists. The full force of a Federal investigation will fall on them, using data from the NSA and others to determine who was even in the area.



But that is what happens when it is an "Un-approved" protest.

In video taken by bystanders, Floyd, 46, is shown repeatedly pleading that he cannot breathe as he is held down with a knee on his neck by former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, with three other officers present. The incident has sparked nationwide — and even worldwide — protests.

Floyd's death has been ruled a homicide.

The autopsy report from Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office concludes the cause of death was "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." That conclusion, death due to heart failure, differs from the one reached by an independent examiner hired by the Floyd family; that report listed the cause of death as "asphyxiation from sustained pressure."

B,

Very few of the seditionists are getting away with anything, last
count over 150 of them have been identified and charged.

The difference is they get to stay out of jail till the trial.
Or in one case go on vacation out of the country.

The summers rioters have not gotten the air time over their arrests
by they are ongoing. Including those in Portland. No one said
the crime was ok. Conflating protest and marches with riots and
bad actors is your thing.

Comrade Misfit said...

Really, B? There’s no distinction between a BLM protest and a violent insurrection aimed at overturning an election?

I do pity you for your fealty to Trump and your blatant disregard for reality. I truly do, bless your heart.

Fergus got his flabby ass nailed to the wall today when the whole permit for the rally thing was brought up. The original permit explicitly noted that it was not a permit for a march, and the Fergus administration intervened and got it changed.
The MAGA morons planning the rally didn't even telegraph their intentions to storm the capitol, but Fergus did, on official paper.
It matters not what any other criminal does or did, ever, this was a crime, and Fergus did it.
And I have two words for the police response, or lack thereof: Kent State.

The majority of the George Floyd protests, a series of protests and unrest which began in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the United States on May 26, 2020, in response to the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin, were peaceful; an estimated 93%–96.3% of demonstrations were peaceful and nondestructive, involving no injuries or no property damage.[3][4][5] However, police made arrests in about 5% of protest events (deploying chemical irritants in 2.5% of events); 3.7% of protest events were associated with property damage or vandalism (including damages by persons not involved in the actual demonstration); and protesters or bystanders were injured or killed in 1.6% of events.[4] Clashes and other forms of violence were at various times initiated by protestors, by counterprotestors, and by police,[4] and were usually driven by opportunistic criminals rather than organized extremist groups.[6]

Whereas, 100% of the Capitol Insurrection included property damage, murder, and an attempt to overthrow a fair and free election. What patriots they were!

And it wonders why the first thought that comes to mind is a fist to the face.

Yes, it. It is less than sufficiently evolved, less than human. An animal.

Damn, woke up this morning to a busted water pipe, a message my sweetheart's daddy is going into hospice, and the egg-sucking dogs are back catapulting NAZI propaganda.

The first thought is in fact "git a rope ... "

Dark Avenger said...

To paraphrase Rex Stout, a man refusing to acknowledge the facts of the Capitol Insurrection is merely a dog baring its teeth, and thereby forfeits the privileges of civilized discourse.

THere is no distinction between a Riot at the capitol and riot over a criminal killed by police. (I like how you claim one was a "riot" and one was a "protest"...Interesting twist there)

THe BLM riots were not "Mostly Peaceful" protests. Billions in proerty damage. Cops killed in the "rage".

BOTH were riots. Yet one is treated (by you Liberals) as something different. But that is that whole Double Standard thing again.

You consider forceable entry into the Capitol a protest? If one George Floyd protest had set up a scaffold and noose, you’d be out of your mind right now.

And why should we bother with judges, just let cops go around killing “criminals”? Really?

Oh, and I guess Blue Lives don’t matter, if it’s just because of a rowdy protest.

Eck! said...

B,

Yes the both became riots save for the captital was intended ot be a riot to prevent "stealing the election", they brought gallows, weapons and killed cops and wounded or seriously injured 140 more.

The other whatabout was protest that became riots when the
NOT-antifa {prouds, bois, and other anarchists] false flags
started fights and fires.

If one looks closely at both you will see faces hat appeared
at the capital and at BLM (both black and blue lives] protests
and what were they doing at the protest? Inciting a riot.
Works that way. Note not theory as some of the capital arrestees
were on bond from their prior activities at said riots.

How many non Capital of DC protests did horns and fur attend
[Q-anon shamen]? Hint many more than 2. It doesn't take much
to pick an available picture from prior events and match faces
with those arrested from their sedition in DC.

Your fallacies and fantasies are blind to evidence and fact.
Like pictures of the perps!
