Nevermind the Republican convention, if US cities keep getting set on fire in the name of Progressivism and people keep getting bullied and browbeaten into giving the black power salute then those polls are going to continue to close*!

I'm not so sure about that, because most people that I know in the US see Biden and Harris as people who will actually help solve the crisis there (in terms of racial inequality and the protests, etc.), whereas they see Trump as someone who is only making the situation worse.

And when did the Democratic party become socialists? In most civilised countries they still would be right of centre.
Why does that matter .

History has shown us there were socialists of all political shades. Moscow for example used to love huge parades with lots of tanks and things , and not a rainbow flag in sight, not exactly the dream of your average modern day woke lefty .

There as one Austrian socialist who had a thing about gassing Jews even .

Apparently socialism means different things to different people .

Trump supporter?

Quote:
Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested in Antioch, Illinois.
Court records indicate he was booked for first-degree homicide in relation to the Kenosha shooting and killing of two peaceful protestors.
It appears he's been assigned a public defender and is set to appear in court for an extradition hearing later this week.
Source

He travelled from Illinois to Wisconsin, presumably with the aim of killing protestors.

Strange that despite allegedly being attacked first, he was still charged with first-degree homicide.

Oh what short memories people have got, remind me who was President (and Vice President) again when Freddie Gray and Michael Brown were shot?

Charged but not found guilty. Seems a strange decision to go with first-degree, with jury selection and the video evidence I wouldn't expect him to be found guilty.

He crossed a state line with an illegal weapon which was then used to kill 2 people. Not that strange a decision.

Odd that as he approached armed police with a machine gun in hand, and they repeatedly told him to stop, they didn't pump 7 bullets into him. What could POSSIBLY be there difference between him and the other guy...ooh, I dunno, tricky one.

I imagine he simply complied with the police. I read that he handed himself in.

Do you have any proof the police officers were repeatedly telling him to stop?

You imagine the police asked him to walk over with a machine gun in his hands?

You stated "as he approached armed police with a machine gun in hand, and they repeatedly told him to stop, they didn't pump 7 bullets into him"

I'm calling BS and asking if you have any proof this actually happened?

What happened may actually be more shocking...

https://youtu.be/B_SYWopkb9w?t=85

He approaches police vehicles with a machine gun slung around his chest and they just drive by, ignoring him. Just as well he wasn't doing something provactive like walking to his own car, unarmed.

We don't appear to have footage of his eventual arrest, just this and prior footage of police giving him water saying they appreciate the work of the militias.

Indeed, one rule for the whites and one for the blacks.

I didn't see/hear the part where the police "repeatedly told him to stop" as you claimed.

I just saw him walking slowly towards the police with his hands raised.

Even Trump supporters need a flimsy excuse before the cold blooded killing of two unarmed protestors.

Allegedly they were chasing and attacking him because he had already shot one person.

Plenty of people out there having wet dreams about Michelle Obama as president, and probably one of the daughters after that. If that's not a dynasty ...

Actually I think that is idle speculation.

Of course plenty of people are having wet dreams, but that is just a bunch of right wing losers who aren’t able to form a meaningful relationship. That 17 year old pseudo policeman is one example. I hope they wash their hands, and their pyjamas.

Ah, I see. If I dream that my kids become kings and queens, we must be a dynasty too!
