Hurry, hurry, hurry this offer won't last lost long, we hope!

Yes, it's true at Trump's Kenosha round table he used the lame old "a few bad apples" approach to the shooting of Jacob Blake. And yes, he foolishly claimed the "system" would handle the "bad apples" on its own. But don't worry! Just because he doesn't intend on solving anything, it doesn't mean he hasn't got a plan! Yes loyal cult members Trump, the self-proclaimed "law and order" president, does have a plan! And, as usual, it's all about himself! It's his latest deal that only a libtard would call a scam!

Here's how it works:

If your town's police department suddenly finds itself featured in a nasty police shooting video showing brutality, Do Not Worry. Just call on Trump! He'll swoop in with federal troops to make the consequences go away. None of those nasty protesters or rioters.

But, hurry this is a limited time offer!

Take advantage of Trump's plan now! If you don't he'll make sure not to discourage his crazy supporters from bringing guns to your town and making your problems worse.

Posting this so it is not forgotten. Video has police info on Umbrella Guy


What am I getting wrong here?

Trump had a round table where he praised the police department of Kenosha.

This is a police department that an officer start civil unrest by shooting a guy 7 times in the back.

This is the same police department that allowed a 17 year old minor, too young to be legally carrying an AR rifle, to walk around during a protest.

This same police department had every reason to enforce the curfew with this kid, but never did. Instead, the police gave water and encouragement to the kid.

Because this police department didn't take steps to keep this kid from walking around with a gun, more people eventually got shot.

This police department screwed up and then kept screwing up, yet they are being honored with a visit from the president.

If Trump was really trying to protect people and prevent riots he should be talking about police reform and pointing out the mistakes this police department made that added to the problem. This is one crazy world.

Didn't hear much on the idea of police reform at Trump round table in Kenosha

Oh well...
Hopefully history won't keep repeating itself.

Watch McEnany change subject when asked about Trump supporters taking guns to protests

At approximately the 15:20 mark McEnany changes subject when asked why Trump doesn't tell his supporters to not take guns to volatile protest situations. Watch the panic in her eyes when she realizes what the question is, and how she changes the subject to police funding. It's like she doesn't dare say anything bad about the provocateurs. Interesting.

Trump supporters, quit attacking understanding

Trump supporters...

Explaining how a hurricane forms does not mean you are a fan of high winds and property damage. Think about that. It's the same with riots. Understanding them does not mean you like them. When someone tells you that riots are a result of tensions and problems that are never fully addressed, it does not mean they are in favor of looting and violence. Please remember this the next time you want to accuse someone of downplaying "the violence". Thank you!

We are being pitted against each other and it will destroy us

Just watched a live feed from Portland today. It was an hour I'll never get back, narrated by a Proud Boy supporter. I wanted to see things from their side. What I saw made me both angry and scared for my country.

It showed a large group of militia- type Trump supporters, quite a few armed, marching up a street and facing off with a BLM group that was already in a park having a peaceful event. The narrator even mentioned that it was "peaceful so far". As more of the militia members, bikers, etc. arrived, the narrator was thanking them for coming and being part of their great "patriot" event. The two sides eventually squared off and proceeded to yell at each until emotions were so high something was thrown. Then little by little things started flying. There was pushing and shoving, the whole routine. It took awhile for someone to make the first move, but it was bound to happen.

Never once during the live feed did I see any police try to calm the situation and move the two groups away from each other. It was in the middle of the day, things were still peaceful and no apparent looting or rioting was going on. The police should have at least been doing crowd control, but they weren't doing anything. I want to know why the police weren't breaking it up before it started? They're always moving everyone along in every other protest you see footage from.

I've heard the excuse that it would be too dangerous for the police to get in the middle, but that doesn't make sense.

Wouldn't that mean the police couldn't get their own supporters to comply?

If the police asked the militias, proud boys, patriot sons, and all the rest to move on away, to protest somewhere that wasn't in BLM's face, are we to believe they would not comply? They claim to be all about supporting the police and complying with them, right?

We are being pitted against each other, and it's being condoned.

I'm watching some really sick stuff right now

It's a live feed from some "patriot" group showing Blue lives matter morons encountering a Black Lives Matter crowd in Portland. A big difference you notice right away: the Blue (and all) Lives Matter people are armed while the Black Lives Matter people are not. I can't believe we are quibbling over which "lives matter" instead of trying to solve the problems that cause this kind of shit. I am sad for my country.

Not going to post the live feed. I don't want to promote it in any way. There out there if you care to google.

Had our Biden Harris sign stolen from our lawn last night

I hope they have another down at Democrat headquarters. Thinking about greasing the next one up with vaseline or something so the person steeling it will get themselves all messy.

Kim Reynolds of Iowa just said farmers were suffering from China's unfair trade practices

Weren't the Chinese buying tons of produce from our farmers?
