    That was exactly the defense given by those police officers who shoved that elderly man back, knocking his head on the pavement. "We were under orders...."
    My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.

      I guess some are tired of winning?


      PS the real brown shirts are the individuals payed for by either on Bloomberg or Soros flying and riding buses and even housed in hotels between the Nations hotspots causing “civil” unrest destroying property, setting fires and hospitalized. Many of the local jurisdictions are not following through with prosecutions as they local prosecutors had their campaigns financed by the likes of the two already mentioned.

        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

            Read up...where, exactly? Do you have a list of Kremlin-backed disinformation websites you can recommend?

            (I mean, besides the ones you've already linked to in the past)

              Martin O’Malley in 2013, a Bloomberg supported politician and the delegations of the DC and Baltimore Metro areas pushed through a huge anti gun agenda in Maryland.

              These and other efforts in other states were financed by Michael Bloomberg.

                  Ehhh...no. This is the WAB. We've never tolerated that kind of conspiracy theory bullshit in the past and we're not about to start now just because the President cultivates and spreads it.

                  You can post that nonsense and the inevitable "Do your own research" cop-out elsewhere. Not here.

                  • QAnon fans spread fake claims about real fires in Oregon

                    New York (CNN Business)Authorities in Oregon are pleading with the public to only trust and share information verified by official sources about the unprecedented wildfires sweeping the state. The pleas come as law enforcement agencies described 911 dispatchers being overrun with calls about a false online rumor that "Antifa" members had been arrested for setting the fires — a claim promoted by the anonymous account behind the QAnon conspiracy theories.

                    The incident highlights how online conspiracy theories, a sustained right-wing campaign to create increased fear of anti-fascist groups, and amplification of false claims by QAnon followers, have real consequences.

                    On Friday, the FBI responded, saying, "reports that extremists are setting wildfires in Oregon are untrue."
                    "Rumors spread just like wildfire," the Douglas County Sheriff's Office warned in a Facebook post Thursday, adding that staff had been "overrun with requests for information and inquiries on an UNTRUE rumor that 6 Antifa members have been arrested for setting fires" in the area.

                    That specific claim had been amplified by "Q" — the anonymous person or people behind QAnon — only 12 hours earlier.
                    Early Thursday morning, "Q" posted a link to a tweet from Paul Joseph Romero Jr., a former US Senate candidate who lost his Republican primary in May, that falsely claimed the Douglas County Sheriff's Office had six Antifa "arsonists" in custody.

                    CNN has reached out to Romero for comment.

                    The post by "Q" was published on 8Kun, a successor to the messaging board 8chan, where users often posted hateful content. In 2019, 8chan was linked to at least three atrocities, including a shooting in El Paso, Texas that left 23 people dead.

                    In the post that included Romero's tweet, "Q" suggested the fires were linked to "highly coordinated ... domestic terrorism." President Donald Trump threatened earlier this year to label Antifa a terrorist organization, a move that experts say is unconstitutional.

                    The wildfires sweeping the state have burned around 900,000 acres since they were first sparked amid fierce winds this week, forcing the evacuation of half a million people, Oregon officials said Thursday. At least five 4 people have died in the fires.

                    An anonymous post to an obscure online site wouldn't normally merit much attention, but QAnon followers are fervent and persistent, and the FBI has labeled them a potential domestic terrorist threat.
                    QAnon's followers believe there is a "deep state" within the US government that is controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles. According to the baseless conspiracy theory, the cabal is largely run by Democratic politicians and liberal celebrities -- and Trump is trying to take them down.

                    The Jackson County Sheriff's Office in Oregon also took to Facebook on Thursday asking people not to spread false information.
                    "We are inundated with questions about things that are FAKE stories. One example is a story circulating that varies about what group is involved as to setting fires and arrests being made," they wrote, adding, "THIS IS NOT TRUE!"

                    On Friday, the FBI's Portland field office tweeted, "With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports [of extremists setting wildfires] and found them untrue."
                    "Conspiracy theory and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control," it added.
                    And police in the city of Medford said screenshots of what purported to be a Facebook post from the police department's account were fake. In the screenshot, a post showed a man's picture and claimed five people were arrested in connection with arson.

                    "We did not arrest this person for arson, nor anyone affiliated with Antifa or 'Proud Boys' as we've heard throughout the day. Also, no confirmed gatherings of Antifa which has also been reported," police wrote.
                    Medford police told CNN it requested the fake posts be removed from other Facebook accounts and posted a notice on its own page about the bogus claims, but "we are still getting calls, from local and out of the area, asking if it's true."

                    Proud Boys is a far-right group.In the anonymous online posting, "Q" also shared a link to a post from a Washington State trooper who said a 36-year-old male had been arrested for setting a fire. Authorities in Washington, however, gave no indication that the alleged arson was politically motivated. CNN has reached out for comment.

                    Craig Roberts, Clackamas County Sheriff, was asked about the possibility of arson in Oregon. He said, "At this point in time we don't have any evidence of that [arson] but the origin of those things will be part of an investigation as things move forward. So, as you can imagine a fire to this magnitude, there'll be an in-depth investigation looking at all the possibilities and anything that might come forward, regarding that. But at this particular point in time nothing conclusive that would direct us to that any of that." Link

                          The majority of the population of Maryland & Virginia voted in state governments which supported increased gun legislation. Doesn't matter where those population centers are. The majority was voted in. And in Virginia it has been growing more and more over the last decade as more people move here. They want common sense gun laws.

                          The Democrats in Virginia ran on local policies and issues. Hell, one of the most conservative legislators in the country in Prince William Country lost to a trans woman because she concentrated on fixing traffic issues on Route 29. That is how Democrats won in Virginia.

                          The same was what was done in Maryland....and they elected a Republican governor who agrees with most of their views.

                          Oh, and in your stories....yeah, Bloomberg gave money...but so did the NRA. So explain why NRA money is okay and Bloomberg's money is not?

                          • The politicians in the two states that took Bloomberg money and ignored all testimony offered prior to any legislative votes.
                            I know as I witnessed the travesty live in Annapolis. Facts be damned we are voting the way Bloomberg wants, to get his cash.

                            • sounds to me like you're for campaign finance reform, surfgun.

                              why do you want to restrict the freedom of speech by Americans? :-)
