    So, when it comes to HK & USA v CCP whose side will you be on? Will you support the efforts of Trump siding with the HK people?

    I use the term CCP because it's not the general population of China who are doing this, and they also suffer the consequences of living under a communist regime.

    It's not critiquing, it's a general hatred of everything he does, a.k.a Trump Derangement Syndrome, and some people would side with the CCP rather than give him credit for anything. Personally, I support the current effort to expose the corruption among the small group of people within the FBI, CIA, State Dept & DOJ, etc., who were attempting to overthrow a sitting US president. It's not just about Trump either, as they have the power to ruin anybody who doesn't fit in with their worldview. It seems to be a global problem too, since other countries were also playing a role in this subversion of democracy. There were also some people on this MB who were attempting to cover up the truth, by posting Russia collusion propaganda on a daily basis for over three years!

    So not being a fan of Trump is siding with the CCP? The guy who is a racist liar and is against social media calling him out? The guy who was impeached? Not liking him is siding with the CCP?

    Your logic, tbh, is kinda flawed

    Like I said it's not about Trump, you will have to research the topic for yourself if you want to see past the propaganda, but the truth is going to come out and it's not going to be pretty.

    “Social media has been allowed to operate unchecked for years while enjoying the protection of federal law. These Silicon Valley giants have set themselves up as the arbiters of truth, censoring or labeling posts they disagree with, but they have shown that they cannot be trusted to be honest and fair. We have known for a long time that social media companies have it in for conservatives in general and President Trump specifically. There are various reasons we pulled our massive advertising spending from Twitter months ago, and their obvious political bias is one of them. In the most recent egregious act, Twitter targeted a Trump tweet, but still leaves alone posts from Joe Biden which are obvious lies, and outrageous propaganda claims from accounts linked to the Communist Chinese government. Since social media companies have not appropriately self-regulated to stop the bias on their own, President Trump has stepped in to make sure Silicon Valley is held accountable for trying to manipulate the American people. Good for him and good for America.”

    - Brad Parscale, Trump 2020 campaign manager

    Twitter adds unprecedented warning to Trump tweet threatening to shoot Minneapolis protesters.

    This is all Joe Biden's fault!

    Of course. Never forget who is the real victim here - Donald J Trump.

    Trump's phrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" is an unattributed quote of Walter Headley, Miami's police chief in 1967. It was a threat to citizens who were upset that police had terrorized a black teenager by holding him over a bridge:

    How three violent days gripped a black Miami neighborhood as Nixon was nominated in 1968

    As the GOP held its convention across the river, the predominantly black Liberty City neighborhood burned in riots, which led to the death of three people.

    Miami 1967 to Minnesota 2020; Walter Headley to Donald Trump. Different faces, same story, same language!

    I've read a few mentions online today saying that Stephen Miller, Trump's well-known-to-be-a-racist policy advisor, is likely behind the phrasing.

    Trump wouldn't remember something from 1967 unless it flared up and needed ointment.

    No excuses for him using the terminology though - it's frightening and he's certainly capable of following through with the threat of violence.

    It was nice of him to take his wife and son on his alleged tour of inspection of his bunker!

    As a pathetic, contrived, retrospectively invented cover story for his gutless display it is almost impressive - although not quite up to the standard of Dominic Cummings' day out on his wife's birthday now re-badged as an essential trip to check his fitness to drive.

    I wonder if they share a script writer? Maybe Armando Iannucci seeing how far satire will go?

    Here is one of Trump's closest allies losing his self control and swearing (then denying it one minute later). Last heard of in this parish getting his bottom licked by who-else.

    Piers Morgan barely had to speak, it was all about Rudy. Unfortunately my little stalker simply has to reply to everyone of my posts (and mention me in about half of his other posts).
