Sending unmarked troops into cities to break up peaceful protest and "arrest" protesters is a page right out of the dictators handbook. It's what dictators do, amirite?
What Trump did and is doing in Portland is something I never thought I'd see in this country. It's exactly what Putin did in Crimea. Unmarked troops in unmarked cars kidnapping protesters and taking them to ???
Nobody knows where. Nobody knows who? This is third world despot stuff.
It's Trump's secret army with zero accountability and it should scare the crap out of everybody.
It'll be decades before we recover, if we recover, from this spineless wimp.
Look on the bright side: Japan and Germany followed this doomed-to-fail authoritarian path decades ago and where did it get them? Like the phoenix, after annihilation, these axis powers were resurrected mostly because of the wisdom and leadership of Truman and Marshall, who knew the lessons of history like no other tandem, into the top ranks of economic wonderment and progressive idealism.
Trump's demise won't be pretty but if we're as wise as we once were, we'll move on. And smartly so.
Failed like Pinochet, Kim jong un , Putin, MBS, Marcos,Pol Pot, Stalin Mao et al.
We are controlled by psychopaths and have been for decades. We're in the most prolific propaganda machine in the history of mankind and we've all been being brainwashed since birth. We are bombarded with bullshit every single day and separating the wheat from the chaff is a challenge to say the least.
As good as German propaganda was the US is a lot better.
Yea yea, racists, Hitler, the Russians blah blah blah.
Only a looney lefty, would say, burning, looting, killing etc. is peaceful.
Kinda like the mayor with “The Summer Of Love” it was all fun and games until the mob showed up at her doorsteps, then she started begging Trump to send help, stupidity at its finest.
Wait until the idiots of these cities(ran by demos)have to pay for their own stupidity of choosing not to lawfully protect their citizens.
There will be measurements for numbered jumpsuits being taken.
Right, Unmarked military kidnapping people is the American way.
You might wake up some day but I doubt it.
He's an idiot.
Because destroying , killing, burning, in the name of “peace” is the American way, right?
It’s called consequences and not having personal responsibility.
Because demo leaders tell the mob they don’t need personal responsibility, that they have them covered and will break the law for them.
All actions have consequences, if they weren’t on the streets causing all of this stupidity, actions wouldn’t be taken against them.
You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
COME ON DOWN!!!......
You're buying mainstream bullshit. The protests are peaceful. In all but a couple of isolated incidents, which likely were instigated by shills, the violence comes 100% from the cops. Why would they be unmarked? Why are they hiding?
Oh that's right. You guys like authoritarian rule and lack the ability to see where this leads.
Gotta keep supporting the oligarchy that owns you.
I don't watch or listen to MSM, that's controlled by demos.
Don't break the law and you wont have to worry about getting arrested, hiding or not.
Yea I know, it's all the cops and whities fault( just non demo whities) sprinkle in a couple of Russians.
It sounds like your info comes straight from FOX and it doesn't get any more mainstream than that.
You really don't get it, do you?
. Any military.
On US soil?
Are you fucking kidding me?
You think a secret police force is a good idea? I don't know where all these violent protesters are but the protests only get violent when the cops show up and start beating people with clubs, pushing then with cars, tear gassing them, shooting rubber bullets and the only places there's smoke is where the canisters land.
You know they don't allow that in war, right?
It's a war crime.
Unmarked Federal troops using tear gas on Americans and disappearing people off the street?
And you don't see a problem here?
Have you taken leave of your senses?
Im tired of going back and forth with you and your delusions.
You vote, I’ll do the same, watch who wins
The majority of people are sane, we’ll see who’s going to win.
Of course you and yours will be blaming the Russians again.
Of course you're tired. It's not easy defending this insdanity. The mental gymnastics alone must be exhausting. Day after day. I don't know how you do it.
I thought you didn't watch mainstream.
Sorry to cut in but if you look at it pretty much all media platforms are liberal/Leftist. Such as Turning Point USA, or The New York Times.
Just kinda bothered me,
I don't mind your cutting in but you're misguided. All one need do is look at what happened to Phil Donahue or Ed Shultz at the "liberal" gold standard MSNBC
5 Corporations control 95% of the media in the world. Neither they nor the corporate advertisers are anything even close to liberal.
Look how much coverage Epstein got. The tale of the century and it was gone in 3 days.
The Panama Papers, same thing. The pentagon's missing 21 trillion dollars. You'd think that was newsworthy. Has a single "liberal" station even mentioned it? No. Standing Rock? Silence.
The media is about as liberal as Dick Cheney
Secret police force! Secret, they are not. They are ATF, DEA, and ICE agents. LAW ENFORCEMENT, they aren't military. And they all are marked on the front and the back of their vests. Honestly, I would prefer them to be unmarked. It would be the best way for them to do the job they were set out to do. But once again, leftist democrats, fear mongering people with this stupid notion of "secret police force". Like I said, I would rather them be secret and undercover and mingle with these idiot protesters in order to arrest the wort of them.
No they weren't marked. That's a flat out lie. Look at the videos. The cars weren't marked either. He's testing his troops for when he refuses to accept his loss in November.
It's "secret" because nobody knows who they are and they do have people under cover.
How do you not know this?
Yeah, law enforcement. Militarized law enforcement. If it looks like military, walks like military and uses military weapons and strategy guess what it is.
So during protests against police brutality. The police come out and brutalize Americans. here was no rioting for your hero's stupid photo op. Standing in front of a building he'd never been in holding a book he'd never read. They tear gassed those people and hundreds more. No riots, no broken windows These are peaceful Americans. You may not agree with them but that's the only time free speech matters. When you don't agree.
If you don't watch main stream where did you get such a distorted view of reality?
The main source of violence has been, and still is, the police. There's video of cops and alt-right umbrella man breaking store windows. Uniformed goons doing drive by pepper spray pushing people around with cars, beating peaceful protesters with clubs knocking people to the concrete, slashing reporters and medic's tires.
It's a goon squad. No different than the Gestapo.
But you don't see a problem there. You even want more. I think there's a hole in the bucket.
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.
No offense, but if you're dumb enough to believe that burning buildings, looting, and hurting innocent people and their businesses is peaceful, then you should be in a mental hospital cause there's some problems that need to be addressed. And no, they didn't start after a tear gas or whatever. They started the riots immediately when they'd heard they had an excuse to. Fires and graffiti in Minneapolis and New York. This is peaceful,right?
To be honest, I would rather have the police force unmarked. It would make it easier to do their job. They could even go undercover in the crowds and find the instigators o f the riots. And I suppose you don't see a problem with the rioters burning the American flag, or Bibles, that's okay right? You do understand that the rioters are in cahoots with ANTIFA, right? Or did that slip your mind? There was an instance not to long ago of ANTIFA beating up police, they got arrested, but then they got bailed out by a leftist nut-job higher up. It's sad that they can do anything and get away with it.
Mainstream media is so far left it's sad. Even Google is biased. So, no, my so called "Corruption" isn't from the media, it's from my brain, and facts I know to be true.
If anyone is corrupt it's the rioters, nothing they're doing is American
Nobody advocates rioting. Put your straw man away.
There are an extremely small number of rioters and in most cases none and even if there were it doesn't justify unmarked militia snatching people off the streets in unmarked cars for no apparent reason. But you don't see a problem there.
That's gestapo shit.
It's what dictators do. Has history taught you nothing?
What am I saying? You guys like that authoritarian tough guy stuff albeit a sign of weakness.
He's just doing a trial run to see how martial law works
He thinks he can postpone the election if it looks like he's going to lose in Nov..
And it does.
You're a dumb ass if you think that all those buildings that were on fire across the country in several different cities were peaceful. You have no clue about how dictators begin their reign apparently. Dictators don't just show up on the doorstep of a free society. They have to do certain things to ensure their survival in order to start their reign as a dictator. The steps that are taken align a lot more with what the democratic party wants to do to this country then what Trump does. Anyways, as far as the ridiculous charge of Martial Law, just goes to show how far removed from reality you really are.
Riiight. When your position is bullshit move to personal atytacks.
What do you think Trump has been doing for the last 3 years.?
He's been using the dictators tool kit Obama left for him
This is how you create a dictatorship.
Gut democratic institutions, appoint "acting" chairmen to avoid oversight, undermine public trust , create a militarized domestic police force to unleash on any public opposition or dissent, divide the general public, protect the corporate structure from legal action, expand the wealth gap, surround yourself with yes men who protect you from scrutiny, demand loyalty over competence/ability, suppress the vote, corrupt the election process,
instill fear of loss in your sympathizers, hold public rallies to energize your base, debase the currency.
These are textbook steps to Fascism.
It takes some serious mental gymnastics to defend this garbage along with a total ignorance of history.
The serious mental gymnastics are being done by yourself. Deface the currency, are you kidding me? Do you know anything about the original founders and what they were implementing in the Constitution? The Constitution was set up for individual responsibility is key and lack-there-of government. Governments are the scourge of society. The founders knew this and set up a government that lacked centralized power and promote individual promotion. The government that is representative of the people in their districts, and a checks and balance system that was originally full proof only to be tattered and destroyed by progressives . Progressives have been trying to change this country since the turn of the 19th century, they have twisted emotions into their agenda causing people to believe that if you are not for government assistance, then you are against compassion for society. Compassion has been utilized by the left in order to push an agenda not consistent with constitutional or Christian values.
Their mayor seems like a terroist supporter ...we cant let them take whole citys....trump has not send enough troops...although my street is quiet , thanks to prez trump
The demos in charge of those cities are terrorist supporters.
They don't care about protecting their citizens from these idiots.
Citizens don't want to see mobs having free will and having the police force knocked down.
This is just creating more people from these demo cities, that are going to vote for Trump.
Demo's TDS, is causing them to ignore common sense, it's all going to backfire on them.
They'll have 4 more years to cry about impeaching Trump, blaming the Russians and calling everyone besides their selves a racist.
Not to mention running Biden, that looks and act like he's having LSD flashbacks.
It wont be much longer and those terrorist mobs are going to get a good taste of reality.
You don't get it.
There's only one party and we're not invited.
True and one man is trying to do something about it.
Why do you think T rump gets attacked by people on both sides?
Because he’s trying to do away with this, one party acting like 2 bullshit.
You keep believing all the MSM bullshit about Trump being a racist and whatever else.
You vote what you think is a right choice and I’ll do the same.
I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it.
The way MSM fooled demos with their fake polls to believe, there was no way Hillary could lose, is going to happen again with Biden.
You’ll trust your fake MSM again after Biden loses , you’ll go along with MSM, telling you Biden lost because of the Russians and/or some other ridiculous idea.
I don’t care what letter is behind a voting persons name, you think the average citizen wants to get rid of the police, have terrorists, freely roam the streets, being allowed by Demos in charge?
The Demos have so much hate for Trump, they lose all common sense of what they are doing, throw Joe Biden into the mix.......game over.
4 more years of demos wasting taxpayers money with ridiculous witch hunts
Right, like hiring guys like Barr and Mnuchin. That'll do the trick.
Don't ever answer this Trumper on his terms. The guy's a right wing zombie. Dead from the testicles up. He and Trump are convertible over the cliff bound. Bye Bye!
