    cmon man. You’re not this dumb. Doesn’t the name “Kyle Rittenhouse” sound familiar?

    And to those saying there is no difference, that’s pure insanity. One is protesting systemic racism and constant murdering of black peoples by the police. The other is protesting a legal and fair election because they didn’t like the outcome. One is trying to stop the killing of people for no reason other than the color of their skin. The other is a massive hissyfit by a bunch of uneducated morons for no reason other than their cult leader is throwing a temper tantrum.

    i'm uncertain why you'd defend rape, arson, and murder.

    The people who don’t see a difference probably wouldn’t agree with your characterization of what these two groups are protesting. Reaching them would entail explaining the difference based on some shared understanding of reality.

    And since they live in an alternat(ive facts) universe, that ain’t likely to happen.

    Do you have to lie in order to continue your sad attempt at downplaying what happened at the Capitol? Apparently you do. I never mentioned those things. You did. I wish I could say that I'm uncertain as to why you are defending trump, but I'm not uncertain at all. Your effort to equate the riots that followed Mr. Floyd's murder with the coup attempt by trump in a last ditch effort to stay in power is sickening.

    trump, by sending thousands of insurrectionists that he spent quite some time creating to attack the Capitol, and Congress, made him a traitor to our country. There is no comparison between the numerous riots grounded in the continuous trampling of the civil rights of Black Americans over the course of the last several decades and what happened this past week.

    None of those riots, not one, was an effort to steal a presidential election by assaulting Congress in joint session in the nation's capitol. To compare the two is ludicrous and serves only one purpose, your purpose, which is to detract from what trump and his party of extremists did this week in an effort to change the narrative with a false comparison.

    You are seriously screwed up.

    Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now)
    Tryin' to make it real, compared to what?

    This is incorrect and ignorant of the facts. Most BLM protests were peaceful. The storming of the capitol was not peaceful. Yes politicians suppoerted the BLM protests but denounced the rioting and violence that occurred at some of them. In this case Republicans encouraged and inspired the violence.

    Once you break into private property and you are part of an armed party, you are putting your life at risk.

    @ROXRAN not sure how you can spin that into wrongful death.

    The difference is that BLM didn't storm the capitol. Trump supporters did.

    The difference is that BLM doesn't incite violence. Trump does.

    The difference is that BLM is guilty of looting stores. Trump supporters are guilty of attacking the US Congress.

    Are you beginning to see the difference now?

    So you think the officer who died was instructed to lose his life?

    No it wasn’t, it was illegal for him to have a fire arm, and illegal for him to be there.

    Com on man Kyle Rittenhouse wasn't a police officer. We're talking about law enforcement's reaction to protests/riots

    Edit: read the rest of your emotional rant. What they are protesting has nothing to do with the subject. We are talking about law enforcement
