Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 18, 2021

The American flag became a blunt instrument in the bearded man's hands. Wielding the flagpole like an ax, he swung once, twice, three times, to beat a police officer being dragged down the steps of a United States Capitol under siege. Other officers also fell under mob attack, while the rest fought to keep the hordes from storming the Capitol and upending the routine transfer of power. Sprayed chemicals choked the air, projectiles flew overhead and the unbridled roars formed a battle-cry din " all as a woman lay dying beneath the jostling scrum of the Jan. 6 riot. Amid the hand-to-hand combat, seven men from seven different states stood out. Although strangers to one another, they worked as if in concert while grappling with the phalanx of police officers barring entry to the Capitol.

They were setting an example for the crowd. It would be apropos to now use them to set a legal example for that some crowd.

I thought this was going to be about the BLM riot in St. Louis where they shot and killed a retired police officer and wounded other officers.

"BLM riot in St. Louis where they shot and killed a retired police officer"

Always refreshing to see our Second Amendment rights protecting America from tyranny!
It's what The Founders wanted.

Always refreshing to see our resident liberal looney taking up for gangsters.

Here's the thing about your spate of cl0wnish "whataboutism" and BLM is that the retired cop was killed by looters "during a BLM riot". The murderers may have just been opportunists that had nothing to do with BLM. Not so with the wackjobs pooping in their hands and throwing it on the Capital's walls like a bunch of white monkeys. Do you think there was a lack of porta-potties? So far everyone busted and in court was there for a reason... you know... to take back the capital or something equally as silly.

PLUS... they were video recording themselves

They were intent on stopping Biden's inauguration. That's a fact. It's really really different. ergo GFY

You will not win this fight. You are like old technology when it's time to stop throwing money trying to make it work.

That you could even make such a comment is really sad. In Portland, they took over a police station and created CHAZ. It was a liberal utopia, for 20 days..

Until the money ran out and the free food.

And it "may" have been anything. No, the only ones murdering people here are uber liberals. I love how you liberals always bring up "could be's" and act like they are fact.

And I love how you idiots transparently claim to disagree with the insurrectionists while squawking "not an insurrection" because it failed.

Let's just say it makes one suspect you'd sing a different tune if it succeeded. You're just too big of a bunch of ------- to admit it.

I thought this was going to be another thread where you act like rioting against government agents who assassinate citizens without trial is the same thing as rioting because a lying con man told you to.

I was right.

That's your party's whole fake reasoning for voter IDs. "Sure there's not proof of fraud, but there COULD BE FRAUD so we need to make new requirements for everyone."

Boaz must've missed the memo, the one where the GQP makes it clear that The Sky Is Falling (coupled with Whatever Trumpf Sez) is a feature of the whole rotten enterprise.

... you mean like WMDs? "Curveball" indeed... tsk That white powder in a vial discussion was pure "could be".en.wikipedia.org(informant) You ran out and folded a new tin foil hat for that one. Flushed a few trillion dollars down those toilets they didn't really want in in the process.

In the factual world, Trumptidumped was dumped. He lost. That is a fact. A bunch of insular, naive, and hot-headed deniers attempted to overthrow an election by force. They couldn't handle the truth and thought they could get away with it.

www.businessinsider.com

yet right-wing extremists have killed 329 victims in the last 25 years, while antifa members haven't killed any, according to a new study

Murder and Extremism in the United States in 2020
www.adl.org

As has been the case for most of the past 30 years, the extremist-related murders of 2020 were overwhelmingly associated with right-wing extremists. All but one of the incidents documented (including 16 of the 17 murders) were tied to right-wing extremism; over half were linked to white supremacists.

Take your ------- elsewhere.

The "you lost, get over it" crowd is having an awful hard time getting over it.

I love the videos of Jordan Klepper interviewing the Trump supporters and tying them in knots with their own words.

The best was one guy in Iowa....Klepper asks him who won the election "Trump". So who is in the White House? "Trump" Trump is? "Yes he's flying all over the world in Air Force One." I thought that was Biden. "No, Trump is in charge. In charge of the military too." So the mess in Afghanistan is all his fault then? [crickets]

I am trying to wrap my brain around the idea Trump won in 2020. If so, then how can he be running for a third term in 2024? Those people are nuts.
