    I again say:

    Fake news is a real thing. News outlets are incredibly partisan and don't even try to hide it. Journalism isn't trusted by people on the left or the right. The way the news has been monetized by clickbait has taken the professionalism out of the trade.

    I agree with you on that for sure. But with a little effort you can sift through the rhetoric you can find teal news. If you’re just listening to 1 YouTube channel For news not so much.

    You can listen to ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, BBC, NPR, Al Jazeera and more to get a bigger clearer picture. Just listening to a YouTube channel for info is not good.

    Yes, I think YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and even google have a lot to answer for.
    And rampant capitalism and multinationals.

    The biggest problem I see over there is the stupidity in voting in the likes of Trump as president in the first place and then almost voting him back in again, it says more to me that there are 70 million people or more that think Trump should be the leader of the 'free world' whatever the hell that means anymore.
    He has sullied Americas image the world over, and as has been said if those had been coloured people breaking into the capital building they would have been shot down like dogs, all men are created equal,but some men are more equal than others still it seems.

    Many times voting isn't "for" one person and is more of a statement "against" another. There are many folks who cast their vote for Trump because they are more scared of the long term affects of the far left being in power.

    As I saw it, he has 74 million votes. And now the left is hell bent on impeachment in his final days. That will only martyr the man and add fuel to the fire for those who supported him and distrusted the "system". The left has tried to get him out since he was elected with allegation after allegation that couldn't be substantiated. And people wonder why there's a large number of people were willing to believe the election was rigged.

    A lot went down that day; do you honestly think that page included everything as a "raw data dump"?

    I guess when you can't argue with the content of the post;
    you find reason to reject in the whole post by giving the definition of a single word, how lame.

    Why would I argue with the post? There is no summary to debate, it’s a video of events.

    do you suppose they did a similar compilation of the rhetoric posted on Facebook and Twitter?

    I don’t suppose you found one showing the events of antifa attacking federal and police buildings over the summer?

    What a crowd of halfwits, your education system must be well fcuked over there, never seen so many loud stupid dumb asses in one place, well unless maybe at a Trump rally.
    Thank God he's gone, I hope they throw him in jail.

    Of course there is no argue, because you'd lose the argument against video evidence; that's why you would not argue with my previous post.
    Video evidence that show time stamps, actions captured of these videos are not ALL that occurred, but therefore a summary of what occurred in the Capitol.

    If you consider Facebook and Twitter reliable sources for summaries of what had happened in the Capitol, sure, provide your summary with evidence.

    Can you provide any source or specific evidence of ANTIFA attacking federal & police buildings over the summer?
    How many of these incidents are there? can you provide date, time & where did they take place?
    Any plans to kidnap or kill lawmakers or elected officials, change certified election results for those ANTIFA attacks?
    Do you even know what ANTIFA is?

    The education system has been poor for a few decades in the US,
    most likely the first public service to get cuts while police, Pentagon budgets rise.
    Teachers are not paid fairly for their work, always asked to do more for their students, use their own money for classroom supplies or even student supplies.

    Generations of Americans were taught to be "entitled" for "freedom", "rights" & "equality" that are simply illusions for colored or poor folks; systematically denied for ages by our so called "Justice System" & "Capitalism Economy System".
    Instead of addressing the inequalities domestically, GOP politicians blame the poor, the immigrants, the refugees, Mexico, China, communism, etc..

    The same "entitlement" get taught from parents to children, who think being told what to do in classrooms is somehow encroaching on their "freedom" & "Rights"; that they are "entitled" to pass the class or get a good grade just for showing up.
    Some part of American education system simply ignore the racist past & present; that's why you have these Americans who deny reality of inequality & systemic racism. No monuments of lynching or Native American genocide, as the Confederate general statues to constantly remind America's ugly past; so they are to be repeated in the present.

    Never seen a nazi propaganda film? that's a very similar if not the same mob back in the 1930's.

    In fact one German official did compare it to the storming of the reichstag in 1933

    typical leftist just looking for argument


    you’re implying Parler is a reliable source of events and human interaction but posts and planning that took place on Facebook and Twitter are imaginary?

    this shows either your agenda or your ignorance. Look it up yourself, I’m not your slave.


    A lot of shit to try and unpack there.
    There are people of color like Morgan Freeman who would disagree with your opinion on the attainability of the American dream. Look up Morgan Freeman on CNN “bullshit”. People from around the world crawl across broken glass to get to the opportunity this county has for people. We should start a go fund me to raise money for you to go to any “better” country of your choosing.
