    So what was this big story? Did they find another meme proving the vaccine is a hoax?

    "Scores of QAnon believers gathered Tuesday afternoon in downtown Dallas in the hopes that John F. Kennedy Jr. would appear, heralding the reinstatement of Donald Trump as president."

    "One post from a widely followed QAnon social media account said that after Trump was reinstated as president, he would step down and JFK Jr. would become president. Then former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn would be appointed as his vice president and Trump would ultimately become the “king of kings,” according to Newsweek."

    I'm not following - I posted a link from the Seattle Times, which is a major news paper I read online daily. Stop being such a troll, moonbat.

    Guess I live in a cave then, hadn't heard a damn thing about those until I saw his post here. Granted I've stayed away from the news in the last little bit outside of local news. I'm probably better off for it.

    Cave dweller I guess, I did not see any of it, I have been keeping my head pretty clear and low lately so not much news and only local stuff and my online feeds are mostly market place and a little chatting with family on FB :shrug2: and out in the shop sitting in my chair listening to music and deciding where I should start cleaning the shop.... I am still sitting

    Yes you got this story and it riled you up enough to post it here. Like I said to BootsBoots I didn't even know about these rallies until you posted it and according to you guys, I should have been front and center at this rally :lol:

    Your definition of riled up is out of whack! I saw a story in a major newspaper that was incredibly bizarre so I shared it here.

    I mean, you yourself are trying to do your best to rile me up but you’re not very good at it.

    The Rittenhouse stuff is strange. Mostly because its a slam dunk self defense case.

    When I tuned in I legitimately thought the prosecution guy who looks like commissioner Gordon from the Bale Batman movies was the defense attorney because all the witnesses he called up were providing testimony favorable to defense.

    the part where he started basically cross examining his own witness made me chuckle. the judge was like "wtf, stop it"



    if a group as progressive liberal as the young Turks are now retracting heavily after saying Kyle chased Rosenbaum down and shot him for over a year, its because they know they spent the last year completely misrepresenting what happened and don't want to get Sandmann sued because its pretty clear Rittenhouse is innocent

    Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17 year old that shot and killed 2 people and injured another while trying to "protect" property from "rioters" in Murica. All 3 people he shot were trying to kill him and all had criminal records. It's actually going to be interesting how his trial goes down in my opinion. :shrug2:

    :eek7: I used the term riled up because I was going to compare it to your TDS and really get you riled up but I let sleeping dog sleep because I didn't want to sit here and go back and worth with you in an endless argument that you keep changing the topic when you are losing.

    how it goes down? its already almost over. Its been a trainwreck for prosecution.

    Defense has this wrapped up with an acquital unless the jury get death threats and fear for their lives to not convict.

    I haven't been following it, I was doing a lot of trolling early on when it first all first happened because the anti gunners were so easy to rile up :lol: go on and call Kyle a hero, that would fire them up for a couple days. :bounce:
    I did see a post from a right leaning media source about the judge saying "vast amount" of "irresponsible and sloppy journalism" surrounding case that made me :bowdownro

    I haven't been following the trial in depth yet, going to wait til it's over and read the Coles. But from what I have seen, it does seem to be veeeeery one sided.

    As for a hero? In my own opinion I think he should do some time. He took the law into his own hands *with* an assault rifle and killed 2 and injured a 3rd. Sure his actions were noble and yes I'm glad he killed them instead of them kill him. The good guy did win in this one, no doubt about that in my eyes. But at the end of the day the kid just shouldn't have been there in the first place. Did he murder them? No. Was I rooting for him when I watched the videos? Yes. Was it honorable of him to march into the police, hands raised and inform them of what went down? Yes. But he never should have been there and he did kill two men. Terrible, criminals, doucheknuckle who gives a shit that they died scum sucking embarrassing to even call them men abortions.

    But I think a couple years is deserving in this case.

    To be fair. The first of the two he killed had less than appealing credentials and they chose to attack a man with a rifle who was trying to run away and gave him no choice.

    The first was a pedophile who raped 5 kids under the age of 12 and spent years in prison for it. Once he got out of Jail, he continued being a piece of shit. the headlines called him "Homeless", but what they didn't say is he was homeless because he wasn't allowed home due to a restraining order from his fiance for serious domestic abuse. He tried to kill himself and then ended up in a mental hospital. The hospital was full and something something covid protocols so they let him out into the riots, where he proceeded to light a bunch of stuff on fire in kenosha.

    I'd say Kyle did the world a favor here.

    The 2nd guy he killed wasn't quite as much of a waste of flesh, just a domestic abuser who liked strangling and imprisoning "loved ones" against their will while pulling knives on Grandma. But he decided to join a mob of 20 and attack the kid who was trying to run to turn himself into the police. Watching the video its clear the mob doesn't want him to make it to police and they wanted to kill him then and there. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Kyle Rittenhouse actually showed remarkable restraint and control in only shooting the ones directly attacking him. Huber smashed Kyle over the head with his skateboard and then ended up with a hole in his chest.

    The 3rd guy he shot had his arm severely wounded. Which was kind of a good thing since he feigned surrender and then pointed his loaded handgun at Kyle's head. kyle in that split second was faster and shot him in the arm. That 3rd guy shot just testified today. And it was hilarious. Prosecution absolutely regrets it. It was a grand slam for defense. Even before defense got to cross examine him, he had been irreparably fucking up prosecutions narrative. Its almost like he did not realize there was video on the internet since the incident

    I stand by it. They were going to kill him. What should he have done? Played down and let them do it? He was surrounded in every situation. Video backs it up.
