Civics 101 Guidelines

Want to argue about politics? Healthcare reform? Taxes? Governments? You've come to the right place!

Try to keep it civil though. The rules still apply here.

Can unity happen if the left doesn't come to terms with its behavior?

    "not looking at all".

    Therein lies the trouble.

          My mom, sister, and several congressmen believe QAnon. It doesn't take much digging at all.

          Here's Trump last August literally being about QAnon. QAnon claimed that Trump was secretly dismantling a cabal of liberal elites trafficked kids and harvested a chemical from them called adrenochrome to stay younger. Trump easily could have dismantled that myth on several occasions. Instead, he relished in their adoration and windfall of votes.

            I thought this thread wasn't about Trump.

              I don't know a single person IRL who buys that stuff, and I'm pretty well connected in our community.

                  If I started it, I apologize, but I don't tend to try to turn threads into OMB ones, so...

                      Exaggeration probably doesn't help.

                      The only thing I can find similar to "a city where over 1500 businesses were destroyed by rioting" was this article saying that there was property damage to more than 1500 locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul in the first few days after George Floyd was killed, where they "set fire to nearly 150 buildings, with dozens burned to the ground."

                      And I can't find where anyone claimed that those riots were "largely peaceful protests".

                        One of the reporters for MSNBC, Ali Velshi, while standing in front of a building on fire was dutifully informing his audience that there were only "largely peaceful" and "not generally speaking, unruly" It received a lot of ridicule on social media.

                        I'm always still in trouble again

His post is an example of trying to avoid that reflection and engagement.
                              That is Starlights MO when he doesn't want to admit that the person he is discussing the topic what is right and he is wrong.

                                and as a non citizen who has never lived in America he cannot ever say he knows more then those of us how have lived here a long time or all our lives if he wants us to believe he is hte as the open minded intellectual he pretends to be

                                So, is this thread, in actuality, a callout thread for Starlight?[/QUOTE]

                                probably call out thread to all leftists on this board hwo refuse to be introspective about what the left here in America has done to cause the division here in America
