BLM protests. Law enforcement killed. White House says this antifa violence has to stop.

Such as you show proof of has been mentioned before being as much or more a possibility of violence than by LW BLM, etc., because the stats show so. More people and LEO are killed by RW groups than by LW, though the Trump admin does their best/worst to make people think otherwise. Until now, the RWrs on this forum, elsewhere, and the Trump admin have been screaming it's all Antifa, the lbrls and the Dems causing violence at protests. Those lies will not stop. Unfortunately, the Dems hardly say "boo" about it and that indicates they won't do much more. What a bunch of cowards, those Dems.

How does a story about the right killing law enforcement and the White falsely blaming the left turn into an attack on Democrats?

Ah, so it was another right wing terrorist the Trumpists were trying to use to smear the left. Got it.

Because the Dems will not defend themselves. They are being attacked and won't put up a fight. McConnell directly linked the cop killings to the left. The Dems should have immediately jumped all over Mitch to state the fact that it is yet proved that the protest violence is caused by the LW but it has been proved that the RW causes most of the death to Americans and LEO. Such has been going on for decades. The Reps attack the Dems, at least by allusion/implication, and the Dems won't hardly fight back.

LMAO yet i can find about 10 threads on here of leftist doing the same thing.

In fact the other day one was started and blamed white nationalist when a car drove through a bunch of BLM protestors too bad the guy that did it was BLACK.
LMAO.

Another thread was started when a black guy was burned to death. Yet the police have found 0 evidence that it was racial.
Instead it was a bunch of criminals that killed another criminal.

sounds like they were planning something and it went south so they killed the guy.
they all have been arrested.

your projection is a failure.

They seem to need to spend all day pointing out Republican lies.

Exactly what did I say you disagree with is not fact and why? Pick out a quote. Don’t just spew.

Clarification, please.

Republicans tell so many lies Democrats would have to spend all day correcting them. And when they do, their corrections often go unheard. They don't own the media (though saying the media is biased for Democrats is one more of those Republican lies). I think that was my point, that Republicans tell a lot of lies.

Thanks for the clarity.

The diff btx the two parties is that the Dems are put on defense (responding to the lies) but don't respond viscerally, and thus don't make the emotional connection with the public that the Reps are so much better at. The attacks themselves and being lies are two points that put Dems off-game. That Dems can't respond in a visceral way shows they have no game, anyway.

I think you are 'blaming the victim', and projecting some flaws of the listener onto the politicians. Imagine the Republican leader said "Democrats have small penises and fart a lot", and the Democratic leader said that is puerile garbage not deserving a response. If you praise the Republican, saying they had 'connected better' than the Democrat, that's more about your poor qualities than the Democrat's response. There is a nugget of truth, but not a lot.

Because the Democrats know they can't sell a lie that big.

I didn’t say a like and kind response, did I? One can respond viscerally in a number of ways without escalating to the same level as the pig that wants to drag into the gutter he’s in. Visceral is emotion and can be humorous. So, a response would be to your "Democrats have small penises and fart a lot" would be “Yet we have bigger dicks and fart less than you”. You’re not even disagreeing with them. Because what they’re saying is nonsense. So, you reply in a way that makes obvious the nonsense in a humorous way.

Kidding aside, there is such a wide gap btx the absolute visceral distortions of Trump and the Rep directed at the Dem who engage in cerebral non-response or even initiation of anything toward Trump and the Rep that leaves plenty of visceral/emotional connection room to not have to go so far as getting into the same mud that the pig loves so well.

The Rep are better at selling even bigger lies.
Like what? "You can keep your plan"?, or, "you'll save $2,500 a year on health insurance"?...lol

Bigger lies like Trump for the last 4 yrs and the Reps for yrs before saying they have a better plan but never producing the plan for the public to know. Then, in reality, they are have been in court for yrs to this date attempting to repeal Obamacare and at least kick-out coverage for pre-existing condition, which incl pregnancy and COVID. Obamacare expanded coverage to 20,000,000 more people than before and you can do your own math on how many more people would not be guaranteed any coverage, let alone affordable coverage, for pregnancy and COVID. Regardless of “Keep your plan”, 10,000,000 more Americans at least got a plan than did before and another 10,000,000 got additional coverage. You can do the math on that one, also.
