And now a new wave of reeee appears
Honest question for people, what did you think of AOC’s tweet calling for a list to be kept of the names of people who supported Trump? And of those who responded saying they have indeed made a list for the sole purpose of making sure those on the list face some form of retribution?
Edit: adding two sources here so they are easier to find and so you don’t have to go searching through the comments for them: https://www.theblaze.com/news/aoc-list-trump-allies-twitter-reactions ; https://thefederalist.com/2020/11/07/democrats-compile-list-of-names-targeting-white-house-staff-trump-campaign-judges-and-donors/
@ThatGuyx79, I mean, I definitely don't like or support Trump, especially after all these shenanigans he's been pulling to try to rig this election, but thats definitely extreme. Investigations shouldn't be immediately based on just being supporters of somebody else, but evidence and testimony that they've actually done something wrong. Were these people who posted about having a list actual people with any sort of position? Or were they just random citizens who have felt wronged by Trump? If it's the former, then I would be frankly less concerned because it would mean they would have to go through actual legal channels to do anything about this "list" and likely it wouldn't get anywhere if people in the list didn't do anything wrong. If it's the latter, that's very concerning. If people are going to act on baseless accusations and get "retribution" we could have potentially violent results, and that is unacceptable.
@TheWafflingDead, she did so on Twitter. Granted most of them have deleted their tweets you can still see screen captures and access some part of what they had already made. Some can be found in this article: theblaze.com/news/aoc-list-trump-allies-twitter-reactions. Also in regards to the shenanigans comment, Trump has the legal right to make those challenges to how the votes were counted. He also has the legal right to request recounts. After all Al Gore got to challenge the results for the election he was a candidate in.
@TheWafflingDead, I think it's more concerning if it's done by those in positions of power. That's how communists operated. Made a list of political dissidents to either haul off into camps or execute. It was predicted this would happen. Also when you remember those videos of Bernie staffers suggesting exactly that
@ThatGuyx79, the right is making this tweet out to be mccarthyism but the actual tweet says "for when they try to downplay their involvement" it's not a hit list, she was saying that people who supported the shady shjt trump did are going to try to deny it. Should she have said that differently? Yeah. But the sentiment isn't wrong. There's going to be a lot of denial.
@ThatGuyx79, Tbf she didn’t say people who supported trump, as in people who voted for trump, but for sycophants. Basically it seems that a lot of the Republican establishment is distancing themselves from trump, and she is saying that those people shouldn’t be forgotten for their complicity. That being said, I think it’s a really poor message to send given that this election has been especially contentions (some of that is trumps fault for claiming voter fraud with no evidence) but we need to form a functioning government once the new representatives are sworn in, the country is far too divided already.
@Spetsnaz , if you had gone to the article I mentioned and read it you would have seen that the people who made the list make very clear it is so they can punish anyone who supported Trump. After all, why have an entire tab dedicated to donors and then delete it when they started getting backlash. Also, I never said AOC said it was for punishing Trump supporters, as can be clearly seen in my original question since I differentiate between who said what.
@Commander Peanuts, read my question again and then get back to me on where I said AOC said it was for punishing Trump supporters. As it is rather clear that that was done by the people who responded to AOC.
@ThatGuyx79, At its bare minimum it is in poor taste. If we as a country are to make any progress it will have to be together.
@ThatGuyx79, As I said in my comment, she didn't say it was for punishing them. And if you want to pin the actions of what people do on what she said, then let's give trump the same treatment huh? Kidnapping plot, shooting at protestors, plotting an assault on vote counts in philly? All "instigated" by trump according to your logic
@Commander Peanuts, there you go again by claiming I said something I didn’t. I have not once said AOC said it was for punishing Trump supporters. That was clearly attributed to those who responded to her question. Now for your other bogus claims: the kidnapping plot was by an Antifa wannabe who hated Trump. (1/3)
@ThatGuyx79, Not one single Trump supporter has opened fire on any peaceful protesters, every incident involving peaceful protesters being shot at have been Trump supporters being shot at by Leftist dirtbags, like that antifa wannabe pretending to be a security guard for 9news or the thugs who shot at the Trump supports in FL with BB gun via a drive by. (2/3)
@ThatGuyx79, As far as the bomb threat goes, there isn’t a shred of evidence it was actually done by a Trump supporter. For all anyone knows it could have been done by a Biden supporter or more likely, some one with mental health issues that failed to take their medication. So when you respond this time how about actually responding to what I said. (3/3)
@ThatGuyx79, ok. So, let's start with my first comment. Where I didn't accuse you of anything. You asked for "thoughts" and I was giving my thoughts based on what i've seen other people claiming. You were the one that immediately got on the defensive. Because you did, I was then inclined to assume your thoughts aligned with those I was countering. Because otherwise what would you be getting defensive about? But let's not resort to attacking each other's intentions and instead look at claims. 1. The kidnapping attempt was very much NOT antifa. It was a bunch of boogaloo boys. Or are we not trusting the FBI now? 2. Kenosha. Rittenhouse himself claimed to be motivated by trump's rhetoric. 3. It wasn't a bomb threat, or at least that's not what I was talking about. It was 2 guys who drove up from Virginia with firearms and were stopped by police. Again, claiming to buy motivated by what trump said. But this is beside the point. The fact is, AOC making a hit list is fake news.
@Commander Peanuts, 1. They had antifa flags and by their own admission claimed to follow Antifa beliefs (mainly the anti-government ones) 2. Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self defense and there is overwhelming evidence to prove such; like the video evidence showing he never fired the first shot. Also his comments on being motivated by Trump were in regards to him providing medical aid, regardless of who it was, cleaning up graffiti, and helping his fellow Americans protect their property from destruction. No where did he make those comments in regards to, even remotely, killing “peaceful” protesters. 3. After looking up the incident you mentioned, I can’t find a single news source where it claims they said they were motivated by Trump. So by all means give a link to one that does because I checked MSNBC, CBS, etc. and not one made any mention of them claiming to be there because of something Trump said. 4. The mere fact that she asked for a list is a problem in of itself.
Also thank you for confirming you're gonna go against what U.S. intelligence is saying on this one.
2.) Whatever happened the night of, the fact is the kid went to a town he wasn't from, with an assault rifle, and no first aid equipment. But yeah. He was there to help people. That's why after he shot Rosenbaum he stood there while a bystander performed first aid right? He didn't intend to kill peaceful protestors, but he was convinced he needed to go kill violent ones.
I was a little off, they're tied to Qanon, which trump has praised. So they weren't directly motivated by what he said, but by something he has publicly supported.
@ThatGuyx79, As for AOC, and really the whole point to any of these comments, is it's really not ab issue in and of itself. What she's saying is that people who were once supportive of trump's attempts to undermine the election are going to go back on it and we need to hold them accountable. And guess what? She's right. Because they already are. It's not some political enemies list. It's just calling out hypocrisy. It's not hard to see that if you take away all the bias.
@Commander Peanuts, Politifact is a biased site, which posts many lies, they can't fact check for crap.
Rittenhouse was there to protect the city, and he ended up doing so.
Except, she didn't word it that way, it's far more suspicious than you let on.
@Spetsnaz , let me preface this by saying that I am not a huge fan of Trump, but I would pick him over Biden at this point, I don't know how bad any voter fraud may be, though I am fairly certain it exists to some degree, I mean we got ballots for mail in voting for the people that we bought our house from 2 years ago, like I said I don't know how bad it is but I definately think it is worth looking into. I do however agree that this country is far too divided, and it is dangerous, not only does it make us more prone to "infighting" but it makes it easier to cover up some of the shady things that are being done as as "extremist conspiricies". I wish we could all just kind of come back to center and find some middle ground instead of everybody fighting and attributing malicious intent to people because they don't share your viewpoint.
@Commander Peanuts, 1. https://www.theblaze.com/news/whitmer-kidnap-plotter-hang-trump-fbi, no thank you for showing you are disingenuous hack. Ps: you can watch the video where they have a literal Antifa flag hanging on the wall in that same link.
2. https://www.theblaze.com/news/kyle-rittenhouses-legal-team-video-gunshot, here you can watch actual video evidence of Kyle Rittenhouse offering first aid and at the same time handing the rifle he had borrowed off to another person so he could administer that first aid. It also disproves your claim about him just standing there after he he shot Roaenbaum in self defense.
@ThatGuyx79, lol the blaze. But i'm the disingenuous one. Ok I see what's going on. Well I'll leave you with this: they're boogaloo boys. They're purposely trying to start shjt and blame the other side so they can start a civil war. So maybe, just maybe, you and the blaze are falling for exactly what they're trying to do.
As for rittenhouse, I've already said all I wanted to. No one who actually intends to help others brings an assault rifle with them. Well, I wish you the best. Good luck out there in Biden's America.
@ThatGuyx79, I welcome them to try something
Nope. Now it’s ELECTION DEFENSE FUND!
(Disgusted sigh) if only...
