    I think the point is they shouldn't have threatened violence in the first place. Being peaceful can be the bravest choice, being peaceful after boasting about your violent intent suggests you were all hot-air in the first instance.

    Could it be because it's threatening and intimidating?

    Once again, FUNNY!!


    You chose a GIF of Justice Alito mouthing "That's not true." when President Obama warned us that the Citizen's United SCOTUS ruling would open the door for foreign nations to pour dark money into our elections.... and Russia proceeded to do just that in 2016. Alito, once again, was disastrously WRONG!

    Anyway, what's not true? That BLM is a peaceful organization or that you understood looting was not a function of BLM?

    I don’t have any good news for ya man. Let’s just hope history doesn’t repeat itself .. that Trump’s last 4 years hasn’t permanently damaged our 1st republic just like the Dreyfus trials had done to the 3rd French one.
    But I just don’t see the congressional Republicans coming out in unison to repudiate the big lie and admit they stoked it along with other Trumpism purely for their own selfish political advantage.

    I'm kinda a bit worried to look up my HS crush. The guy was a heavy conservative in 2003, was Catholic and wrote an essay about creating the "final bomb" that led to him coming home to find the cops searching his room (this was only a few years after Columbine so people still took that shit seriously these days).

    Also, he's a nuclear engineer.

    In Texas :flow:

    Knowing that there are tunnels under the Capitol doesn't take any prior or special knowledge. It and even the notion that members of Congress were taken there could be lucky guesswork.

    That they were specifically 3 floors down and that to access the area one could go by a particular route, however does suggest some level of insider knowledge.

    It could be a member of Congress's staff or a law enforcement person who conveyed that info, not just actual members of Congress. It could be relatives or friends of anybody taken to the location, after someone taken there told a loved one by text or phone "We're being mobbed but we're OK for now. We're in tunnels three floors underground."

    OMG, @Shirogayne, you have to do it and report back here! :soma:

    One of my HS girlfriends is a QAnon believer. She is highly intelligent and well educated.. and black. So this really surprises me.

    Judging by the uniforms and the fact that Pulaski is in the background, it's sometime in season two.

    EDIT: @matthunter beat me.

    Did AlphaLad not know to not mess with crazy? Or did she become crazy after he broke it off with her? Did you send someone to the dark depths of Trumpism?

    I few years ago I reconnected on Facebook with my first girlfriend. Still looks great but, man, she is off the deep end with both Trumpism and religion (a Baptist-turned-Catholic, which brings out the worst of both of those ways of thinking).

    I finally had to unfollow her. :jayzus:
