Delusion and manipulation. But one side is favored by Pancakes so she brushes that aside.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Surprise surpise media lies again. I thought there were no antifa or blm at the protest? Fact checked and verified and all that jazz order? I know a ton of dread headed crunchies who are Trump supporters. Yet I saw them there on several live feeds. Also all the ganster rap that was playing on 75w-150w p.a systems in multiple locations. Of course these live feeds have all been removed because of copyright infringements. How convenient. I didnt know Trump supporters liked gangster rap.


This is gold. Atlas Shrugged. Are these puppets so sure that the Nat Guard will actually protect them?

Crazy times, who would ever have forecasted things could go so far?

Domestic US terrorism is now a much much bigger threat to the US than Muslim extremists.

Ice Cube is not a Trump supporter. But I guess if anyone even talks to, or works with Trump then they must be a supporter right? Thats why NOTHING was accomplished. Where is "Force the Vote" at now? Have they forced it yet? They could have, should have, but did nothing because they dont give two shits about Americans who actually NEED health insurance DURING A F´ING PANDEMIC. Trumps fault. I know.



"I didn't run to go work with any campaign. Both campaigns contacted me," Cube said. "Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America. One campaign said, 'We love what you have, but let's really dig into after the election.' And one campaign said 'We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?' And that's what I did, so I didn't run to nobody."

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Lots of unanswered questions arising from all this namely should the Confederate flag be banned like nazi flags ?
should organistations who re-enact battles of the American Civil War be banned because they include re-enactors
of the Confederate Army as well as the Union army ?

Should Country & Western dances be banned if they include the Confederate flag ?
Should Confederate militaria be censured the same way as nazi militaria ?
Should Roman Army re-enactors be banned because of its connotations in somehow glorifying the Roman slave state ?

Surely if we put our heads together we can think of more inane questions to add to that list?

Shall we ban all European flags for having had slaves in the past?
Shall we ban all computer and board games that contain or mention Nazis?
Shall we ban any computer or board game that mentions slavery?
Should any historical battle reanctment be banned because people were once killed in those battles?
Should the words slavery and Nazis be banned and deleted from all dictionaries?

Should 'The Dukes of Hazzard' be banned because it's young heroes drove an orange Dodge charger
car nicknamed 'The General Lee' with the Confederate flag emblazoned on the roof which even had
the affront to play Dixie ?

Here's an interesting piece on that:
https://time.com/3944668/dukes-of-ha...federate-flag/

That’s not to say The Dukes of Hazzard was some kind of diabolical historical whitewash so much as it was a network TV series in 1979, trying to pull in viewers nationwide for a story about the South without touching anything that inflamed people a decade or a century before.

I don't think it's possible to ban the series but it certainly shouldn't be aired by major networks during this time of political turmoil.

(This show was my brother's favourite back in its time. Something about cars, sexy women, disobeying bad sheriffs and burnouts whenever possible just made it irresistable. Of course, the theme song is still an earworm today.)

To be fair, a government in the US, not the US government.

It was a local city government in Wilmington, NC. And I'm pretty sure it wasn't the only time—think of the lawless Wild West.

The lawless Wild West eh? AFAIK Wilmington is not on the Atlantic Ocean, but they can see it from there.

It wasn’t lust local, the insurrection spread to the state capital.
