There is no such thing as the Left, the Right, Democrats, Conservatives, etc. The sides was a ploy to get us divided.

All politicians are the same, and they are all in it for themselves. This is especially true in the US. They want us to keep fighting amongst ourselves so that we never unify and see them for what they are and how badly they exploit us. I mean, these people mostly have no term limits and vote for their own raises.

Division gives votes. Divide and conquer is the most successful strategy in politics.


omegalemon

But division kills civility especially with two parties, thus leading to the end of democracy and the end of multiple ideas in favor of a binary solution rather then creative ones.

This is just another "I'm a centrist who has completely bought into left-wing media propaganda" post. > Those Blue Lives Matter who stormed the capitol gunning down the police Seriously? The only person gunned down was Ashli Babbit, an unarmed protestor who was killed with no warning. The reports of the capitol police officer who was killed turned out to be a NYT hoax that coincidentally was dropped right after the impeachment vote. > And judging from the state of human rights in America, the real enemies are the ones taking any humans rights away regardless of gender, sex, race, ethnic, etc My party (Republicans) is the party of human rights. We passed criminal justice reform, immediately freeing thousands of non-violent offenders. We oppose online censorship, oppose racial quotas in schools and in jobs, support your right to make your own health care choices, and support your right to defend yourself. We've been the party of civil rights for 170 years, going back to Bleeding Kansas. If you care about human rights, it's obvious which party you should be supporting.

“Blue Lives Matter gunning down the police”. You are aware that most of the people were just allowed to peacefully walk in by the police, and stuff only hit a peak when they made it to the chamber rooms? You’re describing it like a BLM riot.


CheckYourCorners

This is just straight up false, the "protestors" broke through several police lines using violence before then even arrived at the building.


Daplesco

No, it really isn’t. Captured footage shows they were let in the door by DC Police.


hercmavzeb

Straight up lie.


Daplesco

No, it isn’t.


hercmavzeb

[This](https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/09/us/officer-crushed-capitol-riot-video/index.html) is what daplesco sees as being “let in”


Daplesco

Ah yes, CNN.


hercmavzeb

Lol you think CNN faked that video evidence?


Daplesco

I didn’t say that, did I?


hercmavzeb

Yes I know you’re too cowardly to commit to an actual argument. It’s still obvious you’re rejecting video evidence because you dislike where it came from.


CheckYourCorners

I watched the captured footage. The first people in broke windows and had to fight cops to get there. Once people were already inside the cops realized keeping the perimeter was pointless and focused on evacuating the people inside. You're either dishonest or have been fed the least violent footage.


IanArcad

Not true at all. The first footage is of the guy with the horns and those other folks being escorted by a capitol police guy to the legislative chamber.


CheckYourCorners

There is footage of the windows being broken in by proud boys, which occured before anybody else being let in.


ModsRCorrupt

It was definitely worse than a BLM “riot”.


Daplesco

No, it really wasn’t.


omegalemon

They tried to end our democracy. They have no side. They are terrorists and unAmerican.


gylz

It's wild how people view the attack on your capital as a peaceful protest. What happened really reminded me of the October Crisis. Learned about it in school and what they were trying was really close to what the FLQ pulled when they killed Deputy Premier Laporte.


Daplesco

Glad we agree on what BLM did.


omegalemon

I was talking about the insurrectionists, not BLM. EDIT: BLM didn't end our Democracy like you think. In fact, that's straight up false. They were mostly low level, and had no crimes connected. A few did but that didn't stop the fact that most of the studies about these protests were peaceful. Insurrectionists broke through many lines of defense and had guns and voiced the hanging of the VP and Biden.


hercmavzeb

He knows, he’s being dishonest. Daplesco [doesn’t even value democracy](https://www.reddit.com/r/TrueUnpopularOpinion/comments/ormmpf/the_united_states_should_switch_to_a_proportional/h6jk4c5/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3).


Daplesco

BLM are the insurrectionists. They stormed multiple city halls and almost burnt a few towns to the ground.


omegalemon

Do you have credible proof that BLM was behind the 1/6 protests? Because most footage and accounts shown online come from people with backgrounds of calling the Trump election rigged and affiliated with Qanon. Last I checked Qanon hated BLM. So why would people like them pin it on them when they hate them so much? Makes you think. Or the credible proof they burnt down a city hall?


Daplesco

I didn’t say they were behind the 1/6 protests. I said they were the insurrectionists. 1/6 wasn’t an insurrection. Proof: literally Minneapolis same time last year.


omegalemon

Insurrection by the Webster dictionary - a violent uprising against an authority or government. [So that wasn't the people wanting to hang and kill the government workers over a lie about the election?](https://www.reuters.com/world/us/exclusive-fbi-finds-scant-evidence-us-capitol-attack-was-coordinated-sources-2021-08-20/) >I didn’t say they were behind the 1/6 protests. I said they were the insurrectionists. > >BLM are the insurrectionists What a mental gymnastic mindfuck. You say they are but when confronted you switch to were. This proves my point of this post. Bad-faith tactics used without constructive and intelligent dialogue is what's killing your country. EDIT: [Also a person sent me this.](https://i.imgur.com/ELEhMlI.png) This is further proof of my opinion being sustained. Congrats on contributing to the downfall of America dude.


ModsRCorrupt

To us normal people it was


Daplesco

No, it really wasn’t.

Nice troll post 😆


ModsRCorrupt

To be fair, there’s not really a “left” in America (at least from a major political party standpoint). We just have almost-too-far-right and center-right.


BlueViper20

Seriously! The US population is about 350 million or just under 5% of the total world population. To say that the US is a majority and that their political landscape should be seen as any sort of global or real indication of what is left right or center is insanity. Most Americans are utterly delusional in their idea of what the political spectrum truly is.


gylz

Y'all should be more like us up here with multiple parties. I'm probably going to vote for either the Progressive Conservatives or New Democrat in our upcoming election. Having more political parties really does help keep this us vs them bs from getting too out of hand. We have a lot of parties and the only toxic or divisive party is the Bloc Quebécois, but there are so few separatists outside of Quebec that they're a non-issue these days and can't really rile up a mob like they did back in the day.

Russian involvment to destabilize the US. Destroy America from within, never fire a shot. The Russians fuel the fires of the right and left.
