    Here we go with "white privilege" and "slavery" again.

    Did you know or even care that Whites were victims of slavery by North Africans in the 17th and 18th century... including the Island of Madeira where I live?

    Did you know that slavery is still practiced today as has been for over a thousand years by Africans against Africans?

    Did you know that the Arabs enslaved Black Africans for close to a thousand years and still do so in this day and age?

    Do American schools teach that African war lords rounded up and imprisoned millions of Africans, then sent them to coastal ports and sold their brothers and sisters to the White slave traders?

    Or do American schools ONLY teach the part where slaves get into the boats and get sent to the Americas? Everything that happened before is erased from history, right?

    Did Americans also have White Irish slaves?

    Did Black Americans own slaves?

    Trump appointee arrested in connection with Capitol riot

    https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/04/trump-appointee-arrested-for-capitol-riot-473825

    The affidavit says video from police body-worn cameras on Jan. 6 shows Klein jamming a riot shield into doors at the Capitol as police were trying to secure them to keep the mob out. Klein was also heard on video trying to encourage others to clash with the police, the complaint says.

    "We need fresh people, we need fresh people,” Klein shouted repeatedly, according to the complaint. In much of the video, he is wearing the Trump campaign's trademark "Make America Great Again" red hat.

    Klein is charged with several felonies, including assault on police officers, interfering with police during civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding, as well as lesser offenses.

    Biden 60% overall approval rating. 70% on the pandemic.

    A solid majority of Americans say they approve of President Joe Biden’s early job performance, according to a new survey, with even more respondents giving him positive marks for his management of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday reports that 60 percent of U.S. adults surveyed approve of Biden’s handling of his job

    On the subject of the pandemic, 70 percent of adults surveyed approve of how he has handled the public health crisis, a figure that includes 97 percent of Democrats and 44 percent of Republicans.

    If you want any credibility, do your own due diligence rather than claim ignorance. :xf.wink:

    Black and brown children only matter to American "liberals" when they are politically useful.

    That's exactly what conspiracy nutters say when questioned. You think the moon-landing wasn't a hoax, that those jet trails in the sky aren't a secret conspiracy to drug us all, that the twin towers were never hit by airplanes, that Trump didn't make a pee tape in Russia, that we are not ruled by lizard people from another planet, that Michelle Obama doesn't have a dick? "Do your research!"

    Why should Gilsan waste time he can be spending enjoying the nice weather burrowed into some whacko conspiracy theory? So he can be better informed about whacko theories?

    Life is too short.

    Some things are obviously whacko, irrelevant and not worth wasting time on. Q-anon is one.

    As the Insurrection Narrative Crumbles, 26.jpg

    "Completely undeterred by that debacle, Democrats and their media spokespeople returned with a new set of frightening warnings for this week. The date of March 4 has taken on a virtually religious significance for the Q-Anon movement, announced NBC News’ Ben Collins, who was heard on NPR on Thursday speaking through actual, literal journalistic tears as he recounted all the times he called Facebook to plead with them to remove dangerous right-wing extremists on their platform (tears commence at roughly 7:00 mark). Valiantly holding back full-on sobbing, Collins explained that he proved to be so right but it pains and sorrows him to admit this. With his self-proclaimed oracle status fully in place, he prophesized that March 4 had taken on special dangers because Q-Anon followers concluded that this is when Trump would be inaugurated.

    This is how apocalyptic cult leaders always function. When the end of the world did not materialize on January 6, Collins insisted that January 20 was the day of the violent reckoning. When nothing happened on that day, he moved the Doomsday Date to March 4. The flock cannot remain in a state of confusion for too long about why the world has not ended as promised by the prophet, so a new date must quickly be provided with an explanation for why this is serious business this time."

    Years ago, as a teenager killing time with my girlfriend, I decided to follow some Scientology hawkers (in Canada, by the way) into their lair for a free personality test. Just for laughs. I took the test, and then walked out as soon as they started cynically using my answers to try to convert me. My gf came out an hour later, in tears.She was ready to join. I had to talk her down. Later, after we broke up, she joined a cult anyway led by some frumpy guy in a frock. He called me wanting to meet a few years later, on the opposite coast. He realized he was a fraud himself, and became a private pilot. Seemed humbled.

    If you need help out of the rabbit hole, just ask:xf.smile:. I have lots of experience.

    The FBI director, a Trump appointee, called it "domestic terrorism". I am guessing he knows far more about what happened than you do.

    We all saw what happened. It was broadcast on live TV.

    A mob of Trumpers violently stormed the capitol in an effort to stop the electoral process and overturn the election. Keep denying reality... You won't be able to re-invent history.

    The mob marched to the capitol building just like Trump demanded. We had the "trial by combat" like Rudy demanded at the same event.

    It is times like that I am glad Trump surrounded himself with incompetent clowns. The clown coup was not successful, you know since it was run by clowns and all.

    Totally not a coup attempt...just amazing timing!

    DC's National Guard Commander told members of Congress that he had the authority to mobilize troops to respond to a civil disturbance... until the guidance changed the day before the insurrection.

    I am guessing he lies quite a bit to support his own agenda, like most such secret or semi-secret "security forces."

    Like the FBI director you just quoted as an authority?

    I was actually thinking more like drug addicted pillow salesmen, or a disgraced general that plead guilty twice, or the Kraken lady.

    Pretty much all the people in non-official positions. The bar is usually a bit higher for appointees approved by the Senate, especially in vast bi-partisan votes. Wray was approved 92-5.

    The history of the FBI (and CIA) is fairly well documented. It's not an attractive one. Nor are those "bi-partisan" people who put him there working for anyone but themselves. Bi-partisan is when the wolf and the fox get together and decide to share the chickens rather than fight over them.
