I have to admit, “Dick,” you’ve made me rethink my assumptions. So I’m going to adopt your thinking, as follows.
“Stop beating around the bush and answer the questions. Do you agree or disagree with that tweet? It’s real simple question you seem to avoid. A simple “yes” or “no” answer will more than suffice.”
So my response is:
Stop beating around the bush and answer the question. Do you agree or disagree with the lawlessness and violence of the January 6th Trump insurrectionists? It’s a real simple question you seem to avoid. A simple “yes” or “no” answer will more than suffice. See, if everyone who agrees with the basic goals of Black Lives Matter for racial and social justice MUST, by your thinking, mean that they also agree with the tactics of the few who are lawless and violent, then the same standard clearly must apply to those who agree with the basic goals of the Trump Republican Party… if you agree, then you must therefore be supportive of the treasonous conduct of the group at the Capitol on January 6. I accept your mode of thinking on this.
“What kind of a “patriotic” organization would publish such a tweet?”
My response: What kind of “patriotic” organization would conduct themselves as these rioters at the Capitol on January 6?
“One that wishes to change our system to another one, Marxism and Socialism, where none have ever been successful on the earth, except making everyone who follows it, is a pauper? How’s Cuba doing today?”
One that wishes to change one system to another, Fascism and totalitarianism, an undemocratic system, where none have ever been successful on earth, except making everyone who follows it poor and victimized by political terrorism? How’s Russia doing today? Venezuela? Shall I continue the list?
“One that others should send their money (especially where less than 25% goes to the “cause”)?”
How much money have Trump supporters funneled directly into Trump’s own pockets, even as they were duped into making monthly donations they didn’t wish to make and in many cases couldn’t afford to make? Cash not going to the RNC or a Trump campaign, but directly into his personal accounts, because that’s where the money has gone since he lost the election in 2020.
“One that insults every veteran who served in the USA?”
Indeed, as Trump let Russia place bounties on the heads of America’s servicemen and women in the Middle East, and as Trump called them “losers and suckers” for sacrificing their lives to defend a democracy he sought to destroy.
“One who insults law enforcement?”
Nothing like attacking US Capitol Police officers and DC Metro Police officers with metal flag poles, dragging them down steps, beating them, spraying them with chemical irritants, gouging out their eyes, even leading to their deaths to “insult” law enforcement.
“Fly your BLM flag high, Mr. Sectary, while the rest of us look at them for what they have demonstrated themselves to be….terrorists who will use violence to accomplish a goal.”
Fly your TRUMP 2020 flag high, “Mr. Dick,” while the rest of us look at them for what they have demonstrated themselves to be… terrorists who will use violence to accomplish a goal.
Now please, just answer without the trash talk, Mr. “Dick.”
