I haven't been on social media much at all, is it true everyone was calling this couple racist? I'm guessing because the media portrayed them as such and people just bought it?

Hope there were apologies today after everyone discovered the truth.

That ties into General Michael Flynn's op-ed today:

To the silent and currently indifferent majority: Wake up. America is at risk of being lost in the dustbin of history to socialism. The very heart and soul of America is at stake.

In war, as in life, most failure comes from inaction. We face a pivotal moment that can change the course of history of our nation.

It really resonated with me and I'd suggest everyone check it out. Flynn's the kind of leadership material the country needs right now and it gets my blood boiling knowing that they yanked him out of the Trump admin with the Russian collusion lie.

I think the op-ed merits a new thread in and of itself.

My biggest issue is FOX and Tucker are showing stock footage from the end of May: is anyone really burning shit now? I don’t agree with toppling statues but it’s a far cry from looting target and burning police stations.

Nah just people being shot and killed you know normal protesting stuff we see at all peaceful shootings.

Ya he could use footage of that SUV with the 16 and 14 year olds blood all over the place but it might be a bit crass.

The looting has seemed to gone down but there are still protest with throwing shit and tear gas etc....

That’s my point unless you’re on Twitter you don’t see that. I say show the actual carnage instead of recycling stock footage otherwise in the burbs it seems like it’s over when it clearly isn’t.

Flynn pleaded guilty twice for lying to the FBI regarding collusion with Russia. Which he was clearly doing given the details of his pleads. He even had to register as a foreign agent for Turkey because he was in their pocket.

It is so strange that conservatives are now Russian cheerleaders. The champions of our enemies, because they must support Dear Leader at any cost. What strange times we live in now.

The 302s actually prove the exact opposite. His pleadings are irrelevant to physical evidence, especially when he was illegally coerced into them.

No they don't. And he was not illegally coerced. That is some Infowars level misinformation.
From the 302:



He corrects himself that he did not tell Kislyak, "Don't do anything" after saying he can't remember specifics. This is exactly what happened in the conversation, and the guilty pleas do not change the facts. This is exculpatory, and was withheld by the prosecution.

They threatened to go after his kid and to keep pursuing him until he was bankrupt. That's coercion.

I like Tucker in a way, but he also says shit like "Was the self-appointed monarch Fauci right, to betray America?"

I mean what do you want from me, Tucker?

As with everyone that talks to an audience, just keep alert.and never just accept what they say.

The fact that it happened at all is a problem. This isn't something we should just forget and move on from.

Having guns that can defend you against big groups suddenly don't look so stupid to own...

I'd feel absolutely nothing for any idiots who died invading homes like this.

Agree but when you show the same images over and over and over again with buildings on fire it gets a bit too propagandistic for my tastes. If there are current examples it’s more impactful to show that it’s still a problem.

These riots have lead to thousands of people injured, several dozens of innocent people murdered, hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars in property damage across multiple cities. These are results that will have a rippling effect for the next couple of decades ta least.

How is it "propagandistic" to cover the truth of what has happened and is counting to happen in multiple cities?
Especially when leftist media refuses to objectively cover these riots, and have on several occasions framed them as "peaceful" if not outright justifying them.

The protests are still happening riots with buildings on fire and looting are not. If they are show that footage that’s all I’m saying. Unless you’re looking for the date stamp on the footage you might be fooled into thinking Minneapolis is still on fire which is disingenuous.

How is disingenuous to show and report on what has actually happened when CNN, MSNBC, NBC, etc are the ones that are being disingenuous in their reporting?

As I said above it’s not just Tucker every FOX opinion show does this. Fire is a powerful image and they’re using it subliminally to stoke an emotional gut reaction as they rail against antifa and black lives matter in order to subconsciously influence their viewers into thinking the barbarians are at the gates when they actually left weeks ago. It’s mostly peaceful protests now so this is all they can show.

Subliminal? It's literally what happened. You're speaking about like it's ancient history. This all started happening mere weeks ago, and we're still not even out of June yet.
One of more recent riots in Atlanta over justified police shooting started just a couple weeks ago.

Again, people were attacked, people lost their lives, and people had their homes and businesses looted, destroyed, and burned to the ground. This all happened and is happening.
BLM rioters and Antifa are a bunch of barbarians, I think any reasonable person with eyes and ears and would agree.
Especially the victims of these rioters and looters, maybe you should ask some of them how they feel about Tucker's reporting.

That is a mischaracterization of the current state of the US. It isn’t day 1 bad but it’s still bad. Mob justice is starting to form, police in urban centers are on low sleep and spread thin and gun crime is surging.

Im not disputing that. What I’m saying is that Tucker and FOX should be highlighting footage of the current situation so people know how bad it is out there but they keep going back to the stock footage of burning buildings well which doesn’t reflect the current situation. I get it fire is more exciting but it does the audience a disservice.

You do realize not everyone knows about the burnings, and not everyone watches fox. So if they are trying to spread the truth, they will harp on it for as long as it takes to hear. Also, news orgs haven’t been exactly allowed to go into the war zones of the US especially Fox.

Was it footage from Minneapolis or St. Louis, which also had riots, looting, burning, and murder (David Dorn was killed just 10 minutes by car from where the couple lived) just a few weeks ago?

Trolling? This is all out in the public. Has been for a long time. If you think me pointing that out is trolling then be careful of melting, snowflake.

Nope, the 302s were just released recently. Will you actually confront the evidence or keep on just reciting your talking points?

From the 302:

You're taking a tiny snippet of a defendant's testimony, from two major cases, a defendant who already pleaded guilty both times, and parading it around as evidence of some vast conspiracy theory. No, I won't dignify that with a response. Go peddle it on /pol/ or Infowars or something.

The 302 is the evidence they used to say he lied, and that statement is what they claim he lied about. It matches with what was discussed in the Kislyak call. This exculpatory evidence was actively hid from Flynn. That is actually a crime.

Pleading guilty is irrelevant considering he was coerced to do so and plenty of people have pled guilty to crimes they were innocent of committing.

What conspiracy am I implying?

The MMFA stooges are going after his advertisers for the 1000th time

The future seems factional, and I think we're in for some trouble if it doesn't get sorted out. The rampant march of the Left has no counter on the Right. Individualists don't organize boycotts and cancel squads. Conservatives don't demand fealty and threaten violence for past sins. I honestly don't know what to do in the face of this.
