Who's known for killing and maiming people, Dave? Antifa protesters or the Klan/white supremacists/nazis? Come on, you must know the answer to that one.
Both.  (Talking about currently, not in the past)
In other words, ignoring a hell of a lot of context. Literally more than a century of context.

Even currently the tally of violence is pretty one-sided. Alt-right white supremacists have done a lot of killing and maiming in the US in the past several years. Antifa seem to have damaged some property and punched a couple people.
Uhhh, Dave?
You seem to have lost the ability to defend the dumb shit you post.

Eh, antifa has done more than that.

Doesn't make them as bad as Nazis or the Klan, but they certainly have done more than that.

Hopefully the truth will come out soon enough if and when the memo is released.
What memo?
The one composed by Nunes?
Quote
No point in arguing about it until then.
Right. And no reason to jump to conclusions like this:
...
The Strzok anti-Trump text message to FBI lawyer Lisa Page about "no way" Trump gets elected and having an "insurance policy" to see that he doesn't,

14
Lol ... no.  YOU have it wrong.
So the "insurance policy" was simultaneously something for in case it happened and something to prevent it from happening?
Or what?

Please elaborate.
Yes. Please elaborate.
it appears that they put a plan in place to try to prevent Trump from getting elected. But in case he got elected, the plan would allow them to get him impeached.
Aha. Right. Just like a life insurance is something you put in place to prevent your death. But in case you die, allows you to resurrect?
Analogies are never perfect.

Quite.  So trying to deduce the other half of a conversation of which the half you have is an analogy is not going to be a slam dunk, is it?  Or a smoking gun?  There are many possible other halves that make some sort of sense, of which plotting to stop Trump being elected is one of the more remote, and doing something to make sure that in the event he IS elected, something is in place to limit the damage, fits the analogy rather better.

Nobody is claiming it is a slam dunk but it is something that needs to be explained.

This is the FBI we are talking about here.

I do believe it is illegal for the FBI to take sides in a presidential election.
So if one side are criminals and traitors they are not allowed to do anything?

What will happen if it's fake news?  Will there be a fake news presentation by the whitehouse?

I am willing to research the statutes if you can quote them.  I am unaware of any laws governing off duty texts to a mistress.

What is the most horrifying thing that you see the Republican Party doing right now?
Well as long as the theme is ignoring questions by posing more...
I'll think about answering this one if and when you articulate how HRC is like Stalin.
Because you have given that alleged similarity MANY TIMES when asked why you voted for Trump.
See if you can come up with a reason less moronic than a perceived similarity in the way they comb their hair.

There's an important difference between desert and desertification you're militantly ignoring.
Not ignoring it.  It's just not important.
It is very important.
Quote
Unless of course it was that way from the beginning, which is highly unlikely given the evidence we have in the present day.
The important point is not WHETHER a region became a desert, but whether that process had anything to do with human agriculture.

OK. Fair enough.
It turns out the thread is about opinions.
