Before I disappoint you, Jim…
By rising to your challenge… let me remind you of just one of your low-boy accusations.
You said… “you do what you always do. You interpret something the way an emotional 4th grader might, then proceed to argue points never made.”
Which is exactly what you’ve done here… because I never claimed you made “a defense of jan 6 in any way,” as you accused me of!
Anyway… you and Chris were discussing the acceptability of violence. The thread covered the violence of the 2020 riots, the potential violence of the upcoming Supreme Court ruling, and the violent Jan 6th insurrection.
Given that violence, you suggested that “Civilized people do not react with violence when they do not get their way. Isn't that what the current hearings are supposed to be about?”
Several posts later, you said, “It's insulting to imply that the hundreds of people involved in all that violence and burning [of 2020] have been dealt with,” adding that, “given all that … where are the Congressional investigations?” Linking, for the second time, the violence of 2020, with that of Jan 6th!
You then closed that comment with, “I get tired of people trying to link peaceful dissent to pure destruction and theft.”
I responded by simply asking if you were “trying to pass off the events of Jan 6th as “peaceful dissent”!
Which, given the conversation, was a legitimate question! And it’s what got you all riled up and flusterbated…
Now do you remember… Narrow beam?
