This question is sincere as I'm trying to find out myself. I'm a fairly active reader of news but have only seen outrage in mainstream news outlets about the DC protests and not specific claims of what Trump did or how the protests were more violent or dangerous than the months of BLM protests last year. The attached video by JP Sears seems to suggest that Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Apple, and Google have teamed up with Liberals to censor dissent and promote that Trump is dangerous via propaganda. In the video, he shows two tweets of Trump, shown below, that he says is what the fuss is all about - is that right?
Bonus question: How are the alleged calls of violence by Trump different or worse than those in this video below?
From what I've read, he was inflammatory but not outright calling for violence. I don't know that he can be held legally responsible.
I do think he may be able to be impeached, though, which seems like a moot point but from what I understand, he would lose his pension and some other perks.
I enjoy the freedom afforded by this site to socialize with international people. Thank you for creating the Agnositic website with this freedom in mind.
However, I have recently noticed that those who have not broken any of this site's rules, and yet who have Muslim last name, were deleted from the Agnostic website. My guess is that they were deleted maybe because they did not approve of Trump. This is only a guess. They had responded to another members question with their individual opinion about Trump and then were deleted, even though they identify as atheist.
You have asked about bias. Imo, to delete any members for speaking against Trump is bias. Again, I approve of this website, try not to break its rules, and hope that everyone is allowed equal access to communicate without censorship on the Agnostic website. I believe the ability to communicate with others will open people's minds, and erase some of the ignorance encouraged by those who seek power without caring about ALL of the people of the United States. I hope that free communication on this website will also foster goodwill and constructive social change.
One issue I personally have with Trump is his penchant for destruction of the environment and his often repeated message that climate change is a hoax. Currently, there are actually many Republicans, especially young Repubs, who believe that climate change is real and is a man-made threat. They are in agreement with countless people from around the world. I wish you well. I hope I haven't offended you or anybody else, even though I have responded with my opinions.
Why can't we have standard rules for judging this which are applied on an equal basis to all things? Religions are allowed to propagate hate by calling directly for violence and not merely hinting at it, so if people want to go after Trump for inciting violence if you interpret his words in a particular way where there's more than enough ambiguity for your interpretation to be wrong, they have no excuse for not condemning religions that are far worse. What do we see there though? They defend that hate and the calls for acts of genocide.
Get rid of the hypocrisy and make it a level playing field so that everyone has to meet the same standards.
Wow! There is ZERO comparison between BLM demonstrations (where some took advantage of the situation to loot and riot) and AMERICANS ATTACKING THEIR CAPITOL!!! You need verification here? The people were yelling to hang the vice president for failing to honor the dictators wishes and de-certify the election. Have you not seen any of the videos taken by all kinds of people? What did trump do? He invited them all to the Capitol to make sure the free and fair election was not certified...his statements that is was going to be wild? "Fight like hell?" How are peaceful protest and the word fight associated? What could possibly be wild about a peaceful protest at the Capitol? They said his words didn't mean anything. What if there was a next time and all he said was "you know what to do?" Those are certainly harmless words right? The whole fucking world would know what he meant but not the people who are unsure or trying to find out. Increasingly with your posts I'm thinking that you're one of the people that just hates god and isn't as true non-believer
Pelosi & Kamala Harris are guilty of inciting riots murdering bad or good cops burning down cities and letting looters go free since last summer....fake news fascism has been obvious since 2015 promoting criminal BILLARY and rigging the coup de tat for the BidenS crime families
I have always expected Atheists to tell the truth about everything given their courage to tell the truth about McCarthyism.. ... I remain baffled why 129 Atheists BELIEVE FAKE NEWS and blindly hate TrumpOLINI
.....especially letting the demonRATs illegally kick off ballots our Atheist WWW.HOWIEHAWKINS.US in 19 states illegally rigged 2 primaries against Bernie 2016&2020 and pretend 5 states did not steal the election from 75 million TrumpOLINI voters ? 123 thousand extra ballots were stuffed in Pennsylvania over the total number of real voters voting in all other races....THAT IS A FACT on the official state website PA SECY STATE..... all 129 of you have proven your incompetence to sit on any jury USA....I am ashamed of the blueReds redBlues duopoly who still blame Ralph Nader for Jeb Bush crime family stealing the election from PRESIDENT Albert Gore Junior 43
From the late Carlin .... and the group could be Senate, Congress, Antifa, BLM, any far right group .... or any crowd at football, hockey, etc. Once you have a crowd with a common idea there is an inherent mob tendancy that can explode
It seems to me, a complete outsider who has no particular interest, that the stupid democrat group, through impeachment, will only serve to anger and unite the stupid republican group .... leading to deeper division in what was once a great democracy.
@Admin Tribalism is really tearing our country apart, and I blame the tribalist mentality for all the arguing over that issue. Over the years (the last four in particular) I've observed that those who tend to lean left will almost always side with Democrat politicians and those who lean right will almost always side with the Republicans, no one hardly wants to come to the middle these days. From a strictly independent point of view (I neither hate or favor President Trump), upon considering the content of those two tweets I'd say there was no call to violent acts.
In the first tweet Trump simply said he will not be attending the Inauguration of Joe Biden, and given the present circumstances with Covid and so many events going virtual, that seems like an okay call. One would think any advocates of social distancing/limiting attendance at social events would be in favor of such a decision.
In the second tweet, Trump mentioned about those who had voted for him will have a voice well into the future, and that they will not be disrespected for their views more or less.
Now... how does a few tweets about not attending the next Presidential Inauguration and Trump voter's voices being heard automatically equate to calls of violence? There is nothing violent about any of that. I'm convinced that when it comes to political or emotional issues, people see whatever it is they want to see. If you already hold a grudge against a particular individual and said individual suddenly gets caught up in some sort of scandal, chances are fairly high you would not be inclined to cut that person any slack whatsoever (vice versa the situation if you like the person). My point is, the ado over Trump's tweets is largely based on emotions, and not rationale. People see whatever it is they want to see (or not see), imagining things along the way that do not exist, and mostly due to some sort of personal bias.
Just an independent take on the matter from someone who doesn't care for either political extreme. Please note my restraint on the double standard there that so many got worked up over Trump's tweets and yet most of those very same individuals said absolutely nothing last summer when ANTIFA/BLM went on criminal rampages committing acts of arson & threatening people who held views different from theirs & ransacking businesses at the direct urging of some Democrat politicans. I could go on and on over all of that, pointing out the blatant hypocrisy, but that would probably make for another post another time perhaps. The tribalist mentality is truly damaging our country.
