I could also take statements someone said and put "false" and "mostly false" next to them. Doesn't make it true. And INSANELY dishonest :ROFL:
Are you for real. Talk about exaggeration to try and discredit someone. You are the dishonest one.
...what? You know you can read what he said and look at what he was talking about. All you need to do to realise he's a liar. Not very difficult.

I disagree. The thing should never have been made in the first place. It doesn't deserve to exist. Plenty of other ways for us to understand just how evil these folks were. We don't need this to achieve that.
The argument that the statues were/are about 'preserving history' has also always been a lie. The majority of were erected long after the war and mostly functioned as vehicles for false Lost Cause propaganda and a direct middle-finger to civil rights gaining traction.

Because relying on personal responsibility will get us through the pandemic, obviously. (/s goes here)

There's a reason folks are starting to call this a 'pandemic of the unvaccinated'.

Also:

One of the uncomfortable truths in the US polity is how many conservatives, despite pretending to be macho, freedom loving renegades, are in reality fragile babies who cannot handle that all facets of society aren't geared solely toward fulfilling their ideological preferences.

Many people are turning down Covid vaccines because they are angry that President Donald Trump lost the election and sick of Democrats thinking they know what’s best.

I take you are speaking from experience as a bona fide black American?

No, this is the actual meaning of defund the police:

Given the NYPD hasn't been defunded, is this you admitting that it had little or nothing to do with the rise? Good job, Chris. Self-own king today.

Monthly data can also be misleading.

For example:

June crime statistics show shootings and murders in New York City were down last month year-over-year, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea announced Tuesday.

Shooting incidents in the city were down 20% in June. Murder was down 23% compared to the same month a year ago. And the number of shooting victims was down 26% over last June.

Now let's have a look at the current political affiliation of the governors in these states....I spot a pattern.

Many people here and elsewhere in the Southeast are turning down Covid-19 vaccines because they are angry that President Donald Trump lost the election and sick of Democrats in Washington thinking they know what’s best

And this data was obtained how? What is many? One? Ten? 50% of residents?

If we are going to talk about "fragile babies who cannot handle that all facets of society aren't geared solely toward fulfilling their ideological preferences", we really need to talk about the people who ran around looting, rioting and burning things for months on end.

Those are just criminals, nothing to do with being fragile babies. Now the ones that stormed the capital, they are both.

Yawn. So you have more than 12 months to adjust to the new laws and all you are doing is complaining? :rolleyes: You do know *winning* elections is hard work and despite what many Democrat activists think, people aren't simply going to vote for your lot because you are not the Republicans. Such a big whinge fest! If one change like requiring a voter ID for mail-in ballot destroys you in a competitive state, then one might need to ask some questions about the strength of your support.

ATLANTA — After Georgia Republicans passed a restrictive voting law in March, Democrats here began doing the math.

The state’s new voter I.D. requirement for mail-in ballots could affect the more than 270,000 Georgians lacking identification. The provision cutting the number of ballot drop boxes could affect hundreds of thousands of voters who cast absentee ballots that way in 2020 — and that’s just in the populous Atlanta suburbs alone.
It didn’t take long before the implications became clear to party officials and voting rights activists. In a state that Joe Biden carried by fewer than 12,000 votes last year, the new law stood to wipe out many of the party’s hard-fought gains — and put them at a decisive disadvantage.


Democrats in other states where similarly restrictive voting laws have passed are coming to the same conclusion. Interviews with more than three dozen Democratic elected officials, party operatives and voting rights activists across the country reveal growing concern — bordering on alarm — about the potential impact in 2022 of the raft of new laws passed by Republican legislatures, particularly in some of the nation’s most competitive battleground states.
“I’m super worried,” said Max Wood, founder and CEO of Deck, a progressive data analytics company that analyzes voting behavior. “I try to be optimistic, and I do think there are times when this kind of stuff can galvanize enthusiasm and turnout. … But I don’t know that that will be enough, especially with how extreme some of these laws are.”

Suburban moms who made Joe Biden president aren't happy with all this CRT malarkey. Who knew?


Imagine reading the first two quote together and then the next one after that and thinking they make any sense.

Elina Kaplan is the kind of suburban mom who made Joe Biden president.

An immigrant who came to the United States from the Soviet Union, she is a registered Democrat from San Mateo County, Calif. And she’s alarmed over her state’s new model ethnic studies curriculum, which cites critical race theory as a “key theoretical framework and pedagogy.”
“I firmly believe that if the vast majority of Californians and Americans knew about this, and about the content of this type of curriculum, this would not be happening. We would not be having this conversation,” Kaplan said.


Kaplan, who has launched an email list, set up meetings with state legislators and recruited people to meet with their school boards to discuss ethnic studies, is representative of Democrat-leaning or politically moderate suburbanites interviewed by POLITICO in six states, all but one of which were won by Biden. They are up in arms over their school systems’ new equity initiatives, which they argue are costly and divisive, encouraging students to group themselves by race and take pro-activist stances. Proponents of the initiatives say they are a long-overdue step toward getting rid of systemic racism in the school system.

But those Democrats appear to be underestimating parents’ anger in places where critical race theory is top of mind. Objections to new equity plans are not the sole province of conservatives but extend to many moderate and independent voters, according to POLITICO interviews with school board members, political operatives and activists in Democratic and left-leaning communities including the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.; Palm Beach County, Fla.; New York’s Westchester County; Maricopa County covering Phoenix, Ariz.; and suburban Detroit.

On the national level, Democrats have insisted that the brush fires over critical race theory — which has become a political punching bag even for unrelated equity initiatives — are largely the work of right-wing activists who willfully misrepresent what it means, and they blame Fox News for fanning parents’ anger.


What is the actual point of CRT in education? Well read below. Perfectly summarised...make a bunch of largely ignorant and brain-dead activists who really think BLM rioters weren't actually rioters.

One parent in Novi, Mich., a diverse suburb outside Detroit with prized public schools, said she started reading up on critical race theory after her daughter, a recent high school graduate, started raising the idea of defunding police departments and arguing that rioters who looted stores during 2020’s Black Lives Matter protests were justified.

The parent — who asked to not be named because of the heated politics in Novi — said she has in the past voted for Democrats, but she considers her daughter’s ideas “radical.” She and other parents formed an anonymous group to question the school board.

“Based on everything I have seen in the last year, starting with Covid, I cannot continue [voting for Democratic candidates] in good faith,” she said.

But all the dead people who voted for him will probably do so again.

Is the big lie the official position of MyBB conservatives now, rietrot?

EDIT: I mean, don't get me wrong, but lying about 1/6 is fast becoming the official Republican position, so I'm just checking to see how many of Donnie's lies are now conservative canon.

VICE News spoke to the poster and confirmed the author’s claims about being a survivor of the school shooting. Bill is not the student’s real name as they only spoke to VICE News on the condition of anonymity, citing concerns about attacks from members of QAnon forums if his identity was revealed.

As is true for many who fell down the QAnon rabbit hole in recent years, Bill’s dad’s descent coincided with the pandemic.

“It started a couple months into the pandemic with the whole anti-lockdown protests,” Bill said. “His feelings were so strong it turned into facts for him. So if he didn't like having to wear masks it wouldn't matter what doctors or scientists said. Anything that contradicted his feelings was wrong. So he turned to the internet to find like-minded people which led him to QAnon.”

But until January, that was as far as it went. Then Bill’s father saw a video of Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene harassing Parkland survivor David Hogg in 2018, while he was visiting Washington to advocate for stricter gun control. Greene has repeatedly voiced support for QAnon and claimed the Parkland shooting was a hoax.

“He is a coward,” Greene told her followers.

Ever since then, Bill’s father has become convinced the shooting his son survived was a so-called “false flag” event and that the shooter was “a radical commie actor.”

“From there it snowballed into what he is today, believing that if the government is able to overthrow an election, then everything else is probably a lie too,” Bill added.

Bill is 18, and now that he’s graduated high school he’s looking to get out of the toxic situation he finds himself in.

Logan nails it. Not only for the Parklands kid, but this thread too...
