    Recently someone around here made a claim that ALL the violence we have seen in the last year (to include BLM and auntyfay riots) was committed by "Trump supporters".

    At first I naturally assumed I was being trolled as we all saw what took place all summer long, all over the Nation but then it became clear the person actually believes that to be true. It boggles the mind how anyone can think that.

    There is an old indian proverb....."you can't wake those who only pretend to sleep"

    I'm uncertain whether to laugh, be dumbfounded or have pity.

    These folks obviously need to be "re-educated".

    This has actually been their story since the first Minneapolis riots. Remember "Umbrella man?" The police said he was a white supremacist and then...nothing. Apparently he's in the wind still, even though Occam's razor would clearly have one think that he was antifa.

    No more hard to believe than thinking girl athletes should not have a level playing field for competition. That should only apply to boys.

    I imagine you were being trolled after the MAGA claims that Antifa was responsible for the Capitol riot.

    None of the above, but you should be very afraid and despondent.

    I wasn't, for starters there weren't enough stuff burning or violence on old people and their property and the biggest difference is it was daylight!

    Who did Karl Rittenhouse hang out with during the day he went on his killing spree??? Proud Boys and Bogaloo Bois AKA White supremacists.

    Lets assume that's accurate, how does that support this?

    “All” would be a stretch but it would be delusional to believe that the alphabet soup of hate groups often identified as “Trump supporters” were not in the middle of the violence, mayhem, and destruction over the summer.

    I’ve seen video and screen shots of the online bragging about involvement that included photographs. Our lunatic fringe aren’t the brightest bulbs.

    In addition ANTIFA tracks those groups. So wherever there is one there is the other.

    Plus we’ve got a history of violent resistance whenever a minority asserts itself in regard to fundamental rights.

    I suspect what occurred this summer is not that different than our past. Hopefully the summer and the attack on our Capitol will be thoroughly investigated in tandem and we’ll get some answers.

    Saying it was all is the delusional part for the most part we saw BLM and antifa riots

    It's a dead link and I have no idea how that's germane to this thread. You still going to tell us he never said that again?

    I am the "right"? LOL! We have too many misinformed folks on the left. They need to be brought back around for the greater good.
