    Clearly not those who see no value in preserving the values and institutions of what used to be one of the model democracies for the rest of the world…

    Right. Like all that happened during BLM protests was someone carrying a sign. The horror.

    Did this guy not also try to sell Pelosi's laptop to the Russians or was that a different guy?

    Should he actually enforce that rule against himself AND others too he will have the best site on the web.

    FAT chance of of that happening. The entire thing will be an endless circle jerk of Trump praise and bashing everyone else.

    It will last about a week before Trump realizes it costs him money.

    Was that even real
    25 people killed by the riots. Destruction of property arson and let's not forget the sexual assault.

    Comparing BLM to Jan 6 that's like comparing mass murder to a tea party.

    Could be, but we’re getting so far off topic. The topic is dirty donny bonespurs pretending he is going to launch a social media platform.

    But the main thing he is trying to do is to raise money for his debts that are coming due. And he relies on his cult to pour money into his pocket.

    Ironic, and yet not at all surprising, that he would do the exact same things he whines about at other sites. That is what hypocrites do.

    Its his site, and he can moderate it any way he wants. It is not an attack on free speech.

    But I could point to someone holding a sign. Just like you could point to someone putting their feet on Pelosi’s desk.

    The point is, in both cases, that does not represent how serious it was.

    From the perspective of death, injury and property damage the BLM riots were worse. From the perspective of attacking American democracy and trying to overturn the results of the presidential election, January 6 was worse. Nothing has come as close to a coup in America. Ever.

    The participants are traitors.

    Holding a sign at BLM riots want the worst thing murder was. Feet on pelosi's desk was the worst thing that happens at Jan 6
    Only thing worse at jan6 was when Barney Fife murdered a combat veteran for being...um ... To close or something.

    All of your conspiracy trash is deleted as it's fake.

    Exactly, an all Trump worshiping all the time may sound fun for them at first, but will get boring quick and be a ghost town

    We all know how fragile Trump's ego is when it comes to others criticizing him. Therefore, it is likely that criticism of Trump will not be allowed. The result: The perfect Trumper utopia, adoring Trump fans confirming each other about how the US is going into the crapper without Trump at the helm, and with all those evil leftists hellbent on destroying America. And no pesky liberals to interrupt the self-confirmation and adoration.

    Putting feet on Pelosi’s desk is the worst thing that happened?
    Worse than an attempt to prevent the duly elected president from being installed?
    Worse than a Capitol police officer being dragged into the crowd, tased one the neck and beaten until nearly unconscious?

    You have strange values.

    Sure, because it exposes the hypocrisy.

    There was, and still is, another Alt-Right forum, which initially advertised itself as being mod-free, and it took only few days until islamists trolled the site with beheading videos and other nonsense, and now the site is as heavenly moderated as any other site.

    Whining and complaining defines their mindset, but in the end of the day the site / platform owner gets to decide what is allowed and what is not.

    Good point... I missed the separation of "Us" from "the Site"...

    I'm sure he'd love to develop a "Truth" site where nobody ever said anything bad about him, but then there could be almost no content at all...

    You're right, they are all wrong and all should be held accountable.
    ALL of them.
    Insurrection, violent protests, neither one has place in our society. Not sure what making comparisons gets you.

    You have "I support our police" on your posts. Judging by your posts, you should change it to "I support our police, unless it's inconvenient to an argument I'm trying to make, so then I don't support them"
    Do you not care what happened to hundreds of police officers that day? Because you seem to give a lot of cover to those who perpetrated the crimes that day.
    Oh, that's right, they did nothing wrong that day and those 100+ officers who were assaulted are all lying. The videos are all fake too, except the ones that support your argument.

    I have a theory about TRUTH social.

    Trump created it to give bolshevik dospts something to obsess about.
