    I am not watching MSM or CNN. I am sitting in yet another thread on this forum where protesters, rioters and looters are periodically treated as triplets when we don't even know that they are more than distant cousins. the vast majority of protesters are basically law abiding citizens marching and shouting slogan and the vast majority of cops are standing along the public street, bored spitless monitoring the interaction between them and non protesters for a reason to stop yawning.

    Here and there along the march, we have a cop or a police chief with a macho complex or some protesters looking to start something. Once they collide, you can end up with a riot. The vandals and looters have an entirely different agenda.

    My question is: How can so many the the protesters/rioters manage to stay on line for so long? Who is supporting them? How can they afford to eat and sleep, and where do they sleep. Is mommie and daddy giving them money? Or is it more sinister like the anti American idiot Soros financing them???
    You should read up on this country. We have a thing called the first amendment. It makes it clearly not criminal to protest. You sound like some Putin paid stooge like Trump.

    Well if they are looting Wendy's and Cheesecake factories, I assume they are self-servicing the nosh.

    ...or, more than likely, some of the demonstrators are also looters and vandals. It's okay to say that there are some bad people mixed in. However, it's the protesters who are in fact the violent mob confronting police lines, screaming in faces, threatening, shoving, and throwing projectiles. This is indisputable despite the lefts handwaving and cheerleading.

    Seriously, you can't minimize the violence, destruction, and severity of these riots. Democrats somehow believe that smoldering cities will hurt Trump. That's the only plausible explanation for the left's silence on this.

    Where's Bill and Hillary,Obama, Biden, Bernie, Liz Warren, Ben & Jerry's, Oprah telling everyone to settle down?

    I'll tell you why! They're in hiding. They're scared of the animals they created.

    More than likely some of the cops were bullies and abusers, using their batons, their tear gas, and their 'orders' to confuse and drive crowds of innocent protesters into terror when they reacted out of self defense. Its okay to say there are dirty cops mixed in, however the beating and clubbing and brutalizing are indisputable despite the Right wing cheerleading and handwaving of obvious police brutality and trumped up arrests.

    Seriously you cannot minimize the overwhelming force and violence used by the police against the people, nor the total distrust they engender among the public in law enforcement. Where are the litany of Republicans telling the police to restrain themselves and their volatile and reactionary violence.


    see, I can do that too.

    It turns out that the Democrats just wanted the votes all along. huh.
    My post was to make fun of the OP. But thanks for your ignorant input. It gave me a good morning chuckle watching your rant about "the left".
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Those using the protests to riot and loot don't care, agreed. The peaceful protesters do care about their cause.
