it was thought previous to now, that some kind of national disaster would "bring americans together." it was thought that an ET invasion would SURELY bring americans together. the covid-19 mess is as close as practical for an ET invasion, and what do we see? amuuuuricans at each other's throats. NOT "bringing together." nobody but the antichrist himself can bring us together, and even then i have my doubts. we've met the enemy and he is US. we're doomed.


There seems to be a deep social sickness in Amerika.
A very deep-seated partisanship which doesn't seem to be matched by any other country I am aware of.
The chinese must be laughing like buggery. 8O

And yet they trashed the CNN building, which is one of the flagships of the left-wing media.
WTF! 8O

There will be a substantial shift toward Trump in the black community.


There may be more sympathy for Trump.
Well, actually, I mean more resentment against the left because I hear most of the businesses trashed are owned by the Blacks.
It has also been suggested that many of those businesses won't be coming back, hurting the local community the most.

The mindless riots are predominately hurting traditional democrat voters and the anarchists aren't helping their cause, in regards to a left-wing election win, imo.

I don't think the rioters (this specific subset of the protesters) really identify with any major party.

Based on what I have been hearing, Antifa is agitating for the riots.
Building on the previously repressed rage of social inequity.
The presence of Antifa members is openly displayed.

Antifa is not a major party. What appears quite left-wing to you, may appear otherwise for a radical leftist (same with right).

Not the Problems of 'Space' That Need to be Solved, Above, Most;
Yes, More Immediate Issues of Soul Indeed, Within; It's Worth Noting
Always That There are 'Bad And Good Cops', All Through Life'; Some
Are Gardened With Love As Real Heroes With Empathy Who Truly
Do Have an Inner Drive to Serve And Protect; As Bad Cops Often
Come From Places Where Little Empathy of Human Soul is Raised
As Truly Love;
In that Case
They Come
For Power
for Ruling
Over Others;
And Sadly, Yes,
Sadistic Pleasure
in Seeing the Pain of Others;
The Worst Thing The United States
For Shame Has ever Done, Yet; Electing
A 'Bad Cop' To Be President, Villain Same;
Thereby, Gardening the Same of those
Like Him Who Continue
to Look Up
to Him
on the
Lowest
Levels of
the Pyramid
of Human Existence;
It's A Real Place 'Down THere';
And As Much of An Opaque Window
For 'Them' to See 'Us' As Truly For
US
to
See them...
i've Seen/Felt this
'Bad Cop' Up close
And Personal in so many Ways...
The Worst Part is to actually Be
This Bad Cop
Soul...
So
Empty...
So Void...
Never Truly
Filled and Felt
Content Ever A Day
in a Breath of Living, Now; Yes, Also,
It's Worth Noting that the Forefather's
Of this Country, Wrote Their Own 'Poetry',
For The Foundation of this Nation; We Need Leaders
With Souls; For Without Soul, Most All of Us Do Become Lost and Living Dead...
Honestly, We Are Not going to Eliminate 'Bad Cops' in Any Group of People; It's Part of Nature;
Yes, Human too; All We Will Do is Hold them Accountable For Their Bad Cop Actions; So Other Bad
Cops Will See
A Consequence
For Bad Cop Behavior.
Yes, the Police Most Definitely Must Be Policed;
But Of Course Bad Cops Get Together as a Trump Club too.
Smart Phones Help But only When the Behavior is Seen; Otherwise,
We Will
Not
Ever
See What
Really Happens
When Groups of
'Bad Cops' Make the
Crime Scene Even More Real;
They Will Always Prey on Who They See as Less Advantaged;
If it's Not Black Folks; It Will Probably Be Their Family, When
They Get
Back Home.
'Bad Cops'
Are Just
Part of
the
DarK oF DaY;
They Breathe
Off Less Advantaged...
Yet They Are Poorest in
Soul of All...
Again...
Living Dead... NoW...
And Of Course, Uniformed
Or Not, There Are Obviously
'Bad Cop Protestors' too; They Are Every
WHere Darkness offers An Opportunity to Gasp for Breath....

Antifa attacks conservatives.
Andrew Bolt, here in Australia, was attacked physically by them, and he wasn't the only one.
Could you give me an example of Antifa attacking left-wing personalities or institutions?
Have you studied their "organisation"?

Quote:
The antifa or ANTIFA (/ænˈtiːfə, ˈæntiˌfɑː/)[1] movement in the United States is a militant far-left,[2][3][4][5][6] anti-fascist political activist movement[12][17] that comprises autonomous activist groups that aim to achieve their political objectives through the use of direct action rather than through policy reform.[18][19][20] Activists engage in varied protest tactics, including property damage and physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.[28]

Individuals involved in the movement tend to hold anti-capitalist views[29] and subscribe to a range of ideologies such as leftism, anarchism, anti-authoritarianism, Marxism, socialism, and social democracy. [30][38]


Their manifesto embraces violence, rather than non-violent political means, to try and achieve their policy reforms.
Does anyone know of any examples where they have achieved their goal?

BTW,
You mess with "The Pepe", and you get "The Horns",
And *that's* "no bull". :mrgreen:

Andrew Bolt is a far right fascist, who has worked to deny the existence of the stolen generation, generally takes part in stoking racial discrimination with demonizing multiculturalism, demonized immigrants, defended George Pell, made fun of Greta Thunberg for her autism, and is an all around awful person.

I don't condone violence, but Andrew Bolt has caused plenty of damage, inciting hate against minorities, which he can luckily avoid the responsibility of by difficulty in tying him to any one incident
