Main thing I learned during this is there are way more RINOs in congress than it seemed, such as the Illinois one who was blaming trump on NBC and calling him a coward. Similar to most conservatives posting in here who are talking bad about him and other conservatives. No wonder the dems win because many "conservatives" are really dems as well and will vote for dems.


Dehydrated-Penguin

Ignore the downvotes from leftist clowns, you are right.


dunktheball

Look at Barr now. All these people who the left ironically pretended were suck ups to trump are doing as expected, going against him and blaming him. So him telling the truth about the election being fishy means he is magically to blame for what people do with that information.


Dehydrated-Penguin

I live in Miami and Marco Rubio got his house egged because of turning on Trump


dunktheball

I didn't even hear about Rubio doing it. Also, let's say they are right about Trump. Even IF they are right (which they aren't about the inciting violence, but I mean about the election not having enough fraud tow arrant his reaction), they still owe it to him to shut up after all the corruption the left did to cause him to think how he does.


Dehydrated-Penguin

If something destroys this country it’s gona be leftism.

This is disappointing, but this guy makes a lot of good points regarding this event https://youtu.be/UJENOGzxEao

What happened to everyone since the election. Everybody that was so ready to stand up for the president has given in. They’ve given into the very cause we’re fighting and that really is sad because each person that gives up is one less chance to gain our freedom back, or keep what’s left of it. Everyone in this sub has just pussied out and now the people of Reddit have come in and ruined it. What happened to standing up and fighting for President Trump? He fought for us for 4 years and fought for our freedom. No matter how badly you don’t like what he put on Twitter, he took on the media, the hate, and the bullshit single handedly when he didn’t even have to get into this in the first place. I’m sure the people that see him as a tool and don’t care about him will look at this and laugh off. The amount of shit he put up with for 4 years and now will for the rest of his life should tel you that he cares about you. Now we can’t even fight for him for 2 months? It’s not about whether the election gets overturned or not. It’s about the appreciation we have for the man that fought so hard for every single American, and the fight that we’ll have to tell the left that we won’t sit back and let ourselves be hopelessly controlled and that we have a major voice. I have walked the walk and actively fought for the man that I appreciate so much. Riots are not the way to fight for this. It isn’t American, it just gives the media and the liberals more material to make money off of. I know that the high majority of what went on today were actual peaceful protests, which is the right way to stand up for what we believe in, but we all know how they will twist this all up into what’s been stirred up today. We know that they won’t listen to the truth, and that the insanity of the left refusing to acknowledge that they burned down their cities, looted business which ruined lives, and even killed Trump supporters. Don’t give in, keep fighting the right way. It’s just been sad to see how so many people just gave up on our fight


Dehydrated-Penguin

Since my upvote means nothing, I’ll support you by saying you’re absolutely correct. Thank you.


deGoblin

Non of the important actors care about a peaceful protest. You can march eith half the country and nobody will care. And violence will always be twisted by Media to blame whoever's they want.


FuckRedditCats

The hypocrisy and double standards have to end. I spoke to many light hearted and kind Biden supporters on Reddit on election night. We all need to do the same. Reach out and just talk things over. We need unity, violence is not the solution.


bigbubbuzbrew

Violence doesn't help...but talking does nothing, as well. The problem? No consistent law enforcement. No accountability. Major election violations and NOBODY cares. Basic election no-no's...and nobody cares because..."The Trump Tweets"... So you can talk with other side all you want but until we get accountability back into the situation...there will be violence from both sides. When President Kamala tweets something stupid, just remember this. Everyone thinks Trump was so bad...lol...just wait until President Kamala rolls out her MANdates with her deMENted old Aman sidekick.


Dehydrated-Penguin

It’s only bad when republicans riot. What a funny world we’re living in.


dunktheball

lol. The hypocrisy is that the media didn't cover the leftist violence during months of protests, but oh now you go right along with the narrative that conservatives are a problem.


RichB_IV

It is sad and pathetic that it’s so true, but people just don’t think this critically


Zlatan4Ever

That is a huge problem for them. Now America has a VP who fueled those protests in interviews saying it is their right to protest. It did not deescalating anything.


dunktheball

People "do" have a right to protest peacefully.


Zlatan4Ever

Yes, but that woman couldn’t tell violent from peaceful apart.


ufdan15

Question: I've been on break and trying to avoid all politics during the holidays and such. We're these real conservatives? Or were they MAGAs? There is a difference. I'm willing to talk to anyone regarding their views, but I've always considered the idiots who just followed Trump no matter what he said exactly that: idiots. There's good Trump and there's bad Trump. Obviously no one knows for sure who is who in these protests but I'd love to know everyone's guess. Mine is that these people know nothing about conservatism, know nothing about monetary policy and know nothing about foreign policy. They're just the Trumpers who love Trump and hate the both sides I could be very wrong


dunktheball

Funny you automatically assume it must be one or the other and couldn't be antifa or someone else faking being conservatives. I am a true conservative and the idiots are the ones who hide the past 4 years and now feel emboldened to post bad about trump and trump supporters. This subreddit has been loaded with supposed "conservatives" posting things like that now and it wasn't like that until now. Real conservatives don't go along with the bs left double standards.


ufdan15

Don't point fingers at me dude. I loved the Trump admin. They gave me the best four years of my life. But I also know how to differentiate a low info voter who just likes simple phrases that Trump says/believes and someone who actually does research on policy I was asking an honest to god question, and it's looking like ANTIFA was heavily involved, which in my gut I kind of suspected but didn't want to say because I didn't want to be out of line. You can check my post history, I've been here through all of this. But don't attack me and "other conservatives" for not going along with the MAGA till we die BS. I'm notba populist, I'm a conservative with some socially liberal views.


dunktheball

I said earlier today it may be liberal groups and idiots were deleting my posts on another site (I just said it "could" be). Either way you can't assume what type of people it was, if trump supporters, and what I am mad about is not that people are criticizing what happened, but that the media will now have ammo to use in rpetending that it was somehow different than what was done by blm and antifa in the past months' protests. The media didn't care about the leftist violence and now conservatives are giving them posts and sound bytes to make it look like liberals angels and conservatives bad. lol.


AdminBeater2020

Birth of the right wing antifa basically. Can't say I'm surprised though since the media allowed this to happen for months and encouraged it. Now they're crying that it's coming from the other side.


Jogilvy354

So far 2 of them have been confirmed to attend antifa protests, so I’m assuming them and a few more just wanted trouble. My guess would be they helped stir up some hardcore trumpers and bad choices were made Edit: Those who disagree, why don’t you tell me what it is about my comment that upset you or made you disagree?


[deleted]

Ok so, maybe 2 of them were also at antifa, sure. 1) we have no way of knowing their true alignment and which riot they went to to make the other side look bad, could’ve also been true trumpers wanting to stir shit up with antifa, right? 2) that’s 2 out of 1000s, what about the rest who decided to storm the capital?


Jogilvy354

1) That’s why I said my guess 2) I’m pretty sure only a handful of people went into the capitol building itself, most were on the outside


Lambinater

These were the die hard MAGAs and other bad actors who were unaffiliated and just wanted to cause chaos.


dunktheball

Funny you magically know who they are. They could be liberals, as you probably are.


Lambinater

Look at my long comment and post history and you’ll know I’m not a liberal.

Lambinater

Huh?


dunktheball

I don't need to. Until the election everyone was posting positivity and then after he supposedly lost, people came out of the woodworks to constantly criticize him, his family, and go right along with the left's propaganda that their supporters are angels and the right is full of hoodlums out causing trouble. lol. So far anything I have heard in the news about violence was the protesters receiving it, not doing it.


Lambinater

Storming the capitol and trashing the place is wrong. Plane and simple. Every Republican in the senate said the same thing today, you’re fighting a loosing battle here.

Lambinater

We lost Georgia, so yeah I think at least for the next 2 years I’ll be disappointed a lot.


dunktheball

Didn't say it wasn't wrong. but there is plenty wrong with the dems to talk about instead of republicans feeling the need to comment on this, while nobody at all on the left condemned blm and antifa rioters. Also look at the leftists who harassed Flake on an elevator and leftists who had interrupted proceedings before in the past.


Lambinater

Yeah I agree, I’ve been condemning that the whole time. Democrats are complete hypocrites on this.

dunktheball

A witness said in an article that she was shot for not obeying orders to "get back". Remember any of the blm/antifa rioters being shot for something like that? Me neither...


fuckwhatiwant6969

A woman was shot and killed. Anything more than that is speculation


T0XxXiXiTy

We gotta find the names of those 76 RINOs in the house that aren't supporting President Trump and vote them out!


gizayabasu

I'm most disheartened not by these protests, but by how our elected officials that I used to admire have let us down.


geocentrist

This was the Capitol last June President Trump had to be escorted into a bunker. The media called this "peaceful," and condemned Trump for dispersing the crowd the next morning. Kamala went on Colbert to call for more unrest. I'm so sick of the double standard https://mobile.twitter.com/AustinHL1/status/1347006400023683078

Ummm someone did die


Everlovin

I have always been proud of how we conservatives peacefully protest and clean up after ourselves. This is a very disappointing day and incredibly damaging to our cause.


subversive07

What cause? Providing token resistance to an expanding bureacracy and ever more totalitarian leftist cultural hegemony? The actual cause started yesterday. It was born on the steps of the capital and its birth made those corrupt bastards who mock us cower and flee.


dunktheball

What's damaging is supposed conservatives talking like it was some unheard of thing and not that the blm protesters had been violent for months in a row. So the media got away with not covering that, but let's have conservatives now go along with their narrative now that the right suddenly did it. Not to mention the fact that it could be leftists who did the latest stuff too and pretended to be conservatives.


KGun-12

It literally amounted to a sit-in. They stormed the capital with flags and yelled a bunch and literally the only violence was a police officer killing an unarmed woman.
