DC Police made more arrests during BLM protests than the Capitol clash by FreedomUltd in politics

First, source.

Second, "of course there were arrests" still shoots down the very prevalent SaidIt narrative that says that when Liberals protest (and do the horrible and violent things that Liberals always do when they claim to be protesting), the police simply stand by and allow it.

So in the interest of finding common ground, it seems I can count you as being among the saner posters here on SaitIt.

I actually can shop, and the economy here seems to be recovering. I can travel... not like before, but everywhere I want to go at the moment. I kinda wish I had my campervan ready for it. No tourists. What I'm saying is that my life is barely impacted by covid. But that aside...

I love seeing people protest. And more. We need it.

There's a narrative on SaidIt that police stand by and let Liberals protest. Riot even. That's just stupid, and this article addresses that.

What the media portrayed happened at the capitol by Drewski in memes

leftists are allowed to protest.

That's what he saw... is that what you saw?

They weren't assaulted at all times of course. But the number of federal agents sent to create problems was large and obvious. That's well beyond the usual rioting-creating behavior of local police. Was anyone murdered by the police? I don't remember. Of course we saw them allowing militia to do that for them. And anything else they wanted.

In Washington I saw cops open the gates and let them in. It's really impossible for a sane person to not believe what they're finding in terms of co-conspirators among capitol and other police, knowing what we about infiltration of law enforcement by white supremacists and others on the lunatic right.

I don't know if OP understands that the antifa in this cartoon is the children's excuse for something they did.

Which is exactly right when it comes to the sad sacks who are trying to blame antifa for the things they're being arrested for now.

Looking at some of the posts here it looks to me like they think the ghost is real, which is also perfect.

Aren't there already ways to block crypto miners? Epic privacy browser by default blocks all kinds of stuff, and tells you what it's blocked. I can't think of a time when it didn't display a site properly.

I see, makes sense. I guess the browser would have to have extensions installed to block that stuff. A lot of normal web pages content stays on your hd for quicker loading next time you visit. Clearing your cache deletes it.

I think pretty much every site downloads pretty much every file before displaying it. It doesn't stay there for others to download of course. But I'm happy to provide space for worthy content. Seems like the browser and anti-virus software can handle trackers malware etc.

That's not really conducive to good social media, everyone hosting their own.

That's about my understanding too. You have more experience with ZeroNet than I do though. Does it run in a browser? In any case shouldn't it be as easy to block crypto miners viruses etc. as it is for the browsers?

You both show fascist characteristics while calling the other fascists.

But what in talking about is the weird form of dysfunctional English used by conservatives. You know how your grandparents used to call every game console a Nintendo? It's kinda like that, but y'all seem to call pretty much everything communist if you don't like it.

I'm all for protest. I'm all for taking it to extremes. We could probably use a revolution. If Washington were burned to the ground, I'd be happy to see it.

But the consequences of doing those things are increasingly severe. If you do it, ffs own it. These many ways of painting it as something else, all the way to blaming someone else, it's all pathetic.

At the same time, the government will definitely try to use it again the people in the future... and it will affect all of the people, not just your team. Our enemies are the same, and we're way too easy to divide these days.

You are demonstrating that conservatives lie, that conservatives project, that you call the kettle black. You said you had evidence that you refuse to produce... because you don't, and you didn't. You accuse me of trying to change the subject as you try everything possible to move the discussion away from that simple fact. You accuse leftists of misunderstanding conservatives while repeatedly demonstrating that you are not talking to who you assume, and insist, that you are. You insult me and claim that I am insulting you. You repeat your favorite line over and over because you think you lose less when you don't diverge from that one trick.

Are you gonna provide that evidence you mentioned that conservatives don't lie like rugs or not? Pretty clearly not I guess. You're gonna keep pimping the same stories claiming to be misunderstood and oppressed and suffering insults while misunderstanding and trying to oppress and insult.

jeez, I just can't stop oppressing you can I.

If you have any evidence that leftists have more than two moral axes I would be happy to consider it.

You're trying so hard to change the subject, now that you been asked for evidence that you can't produce. Of course you've accused me of changing the subject. You keep doing everything you're complaining about. Including insulting me, then claiming that demanding the evidence you mentioned is a personal insult to you.

I'll ask again... does this stuff ever work?

So sad that you can't stop whining about being called black while calling the kettle black.

I'm merely stating that the data support the conclusion that the left has no idea what conservatives value or what they think, and you somehow twist it into victimology.

It posits that the Western Right's outgroup is people who aren't Westerners, BUT the Western Left's outgroup is the Right.

The right's outgroup is far larger. Saidit is a great place to see who y'all hate - kikes, mooslums, niggers, faggots, libruls... that list is surely far from complete. The time you spend being haters is almost as significant as the time you spend whining about being called haters, and protecting your behavior onto others.

Trump’s legacy: $8 trillion-plus in added debt in one term by tractor2 in news

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Republican candidate Donald Trump promised he would eliminate the nation’s debt in eight years.1 Instead, his budget estimates showed that he would actually add at least $8.3 trillion, increasing the U.S. debt to $28.5 trillion by 2025.2 However, the national debt may reach that figure much sooner. When President Trump took office in January 2017, the national debt stood at $19.9 trillion. In October 2020, the national debt reached a new high of $27 trillion.

I've observed that not all white people are deplorables, and therefore deplorables are not deplorables because they are white.

I've actually never heard any reason other races can't be deplorables.

'Deplorables' are white.

Yes, that's why they can pass as white.

That's why Hillary labeled them deplorables.

Lol, no it isn't.

Are you saying that there's nothing anyone can do about it after the first case enters their country?

That mask and social distance shunning Americans are not infecting each other?

That America could not close it's borders to foreigners, if infections from outside the country were actually the problem?

Do you actually do fool anyone by claiming to be logical?

I'm well familiar with the tactic of waving off any source anyone can produce, and relying instead on what you pull from your own ass. It's where you people live.

The fact remains, I've produced one source, and you've produced Jack shit.

You read the first paragraph and found that a kid didn't eat a breakfast that was available to him, and his mom struggled to feed him when he was hungry later. It's your own fault that you don't recognize them as people who don't have enough food. That's not being logical, it's being in denial of anything that doesn't agree with your world view, which you have yet to support with anything. And frankly, it's being a real cunt. But again, it's where you people live.

Processed foods do tend to be less expensive than most fresh foods. In part, they're that cheap because the U.S. government subsidizes the producers of corn and wheat, the main ingredients in those packaged snacks, which helps keep crop prices low. In addition, lean meats and fish, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, are highly perishable items, and there's a cost involved in delivering them unsullied to your table or cafeteria tray.

The same reason some people drive under the speed limit and don't rob and rape people, yes.

Although more to the point, most people did it for the positive health outcome - I know I need to remind you here that we lived our lives like there is no covid for more than ten months of 2020 - but it was mandated because we all know that some people will be self-centered pricks who are willing to fuck it up for everyone else.

What did happen doesn't indicate what would have happened. The group that never used masks, social distancing... would they have acted any differently if they had simply been advised to behave a certain way? That's the question. The answer is pretty clearly "no".

We're not talking about ubi.

I would have loved to have seen people say "if you want us to stay home, pay us... pay us to live, pay us to keep our businesses alive". But then didn't, at least not in noticable numbers. Probably because the ones who didn't comply have been completely convinced that that would be communism.

I think we can agree that we've seen many, many examples of capitalism and communism lead to totalitarian authoritarianism.

In Japan and Sweden people are advised, not forced.

People are forced to do a lot of things by governments. A lot of them are pretty easy to defend. Refrain from killing people... try not to rape... etc.

I hope we're in agreement that asking Americans nicely to behave as people did in Sweden in Japan is unlikely to have worked.

Paying people so that they can stay home and not go broke / out of business is socialism I can get behind. It's worked in other places.

I'm having some trouble with your definition of communism. Why don't we just say that the US is more authoritarian than ever?
