Editor,

A CNN host opined that the riots were not polling well for the Dems and shortly thereafter, we witness Joe Biden finally saying something critical against these riots. For the past three months, and during the four days of the Democratic convention with a national audience of Americans, he and the Democrat party said not one word against the destruction of our cities. And during this time, not only did Biden and the Dems say not one word in support of the police but they shrieked endlessly about defunding or abolishing them. And let’s ask this question: Does it support our police when Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi refer to our Thin Blue Line heroes as “Stormtroopers” and “The Gestapo?”

Terence--you forgot to mention Conway is still at it supporting the pathetic excuse in the WH, who has ignored Covid, fueled the flames of racism, and supported right wing terrorists and QAnon. You have been missed.

Tommy Tee-DS, I do see Mr. Conway, the patriot, still supporting your great President Trump. By the way, the pathetic excuse in the WH, Obama, is long gone and thankfully, many of his idiotic policies have been undone. Instead, your new candidate, UFO (Unfit For Office) Joe, and probably even yourself and the resident TDS commenters, probably thinks Covid is a poet, racism is prejudice against motor speedway events, right wing terrorism is a horror movie about somebody on an airplane wing, and QAnon is a question and answer session for non-denominational people.

Tommy Tee

Btw-he's not my president. I must say, though, I certainly didn't miss your acronyms and idiotic nicknames.

Christopher Conway

what country do you live in Tommy. I always had thought you live here in America?

Terence Y

Well, Tommy Tee-DS, if our great President Trump is not your President, you're probably not a US citizen and it explains why your knowledge of US history is limited to the fake news media and is mostly fake news blather.

Dirk van Ulden

Taffy - you have never heard of or seen BLM and Antifa activities? Who is doing the burning, defacing, attacking and looting out there? Nuns from Ireland? Oh, I forget, you are getting your fake news from the premium CNN source.

Sorry Dirk,

I am still waiting for your list of names that I asked you for earlier or are you going to use the true Trumpian answer of "they, them, people say , I heard etc. with no actual backup info? And by the way, no it is not the nuns in Ireland. I am sure you read the comments about the letter earlier about Mike Pence, but if you missed it, here is an excerpt from my comment." Protests have taken place for centuries but the recent rioting and looting and killing during the protests is from common criminals and thugs that use the protest as a cover and could care less what the protest is about."

I am always amazed that seemingly intelligent people, like yourself, are so easily fooled by the charade that Trump puts on. Did you hear his latest today about the plane full of people dressed in black on their way to a protest? It is well past time to invoke the 25th amendment.

As much as people like Scott would like to think it is, it's not a binary. You can be in favor of non-violent demonstrations, against violent ones, recognize that police have a purpose, and still think that reallocating funds from police toward non-armed mental and family supports can all be true.

Tommy Tee

Trump's America.

Dirk van Ulden

Yes Tommy, Trump's America includes folks like you as well.

Tommy Tee

Yes, people like me who are educated and realize what a buffoon Trump is. And how he has divided the country, ignored Covid, fans the flames of violence, and supports right wing armed terrorists. He has done zero to unite Americans. Zero.

Dirk van Ulden

Tommy - you are a presumptuous fellow. What makes you think Trump supporters are not educated? Clearly, your education has not done you any favors. And, what about the armed left wing terrorists that your party and Biden are trying sweep under the rug? The race baiting started in earnest with Obama and grew from there.

Tafhdyd

Dirk,

You seem a little confused. Who are the left wing terrorists you speak of? I am sure there are some out there but I would like some names. I know the right wing terrorists that Trump supports, the ones that heap praise on Trump for his racist and white supremacy views. Those "fine people" like Kyle Rittenhouse, Cesar Sayoc, Robert Bowers, Patrick Crusius and others. My conservative guess is I can find three right wing terrorists for every one you can name on the left.

Terence Y

Wow, I come back after three months and Tommy Tee-DS is still at it, full of fake news and hating Trump more than he loves America. Don't worry, Trump is, and will still be, your President, making America great again regardless of how much you try to rewrite history.

Christopher Conway

He doesn't like your side Tommy and he does not want to unify with you. Trump feels the same about you as you do about him. Don't worry, it was that way with me and Obama, so I know your pain.

Christopher Conway

Going strong until 2024

Christopher Conway

They support the violent riots. They denied violence for the past three months and now the race is tightening up so they flip and blame the violence on Trump. We were told the violence is being made up by Republicans for months, you just saw a flip-flop from Jello Brain Biden. Democrats are pathetic.

JME

Do you support violent officers of the law?

Rel

What Dirk, Chris, and other persons on the right are not talking about, regarding violence, is deaths in 2018 by domestic terrorists have been 100% committed by young white wing men. The Anti-Defamation League reported 18 cases with 49 deaths. This has been under Trump's watch. His leadership and words have spurred divisiveness, hate and fear. The American voters will cure this nightmare in November.

Tafhdyd

Rel,

100% correct. The problem is they don't believe there is racism, bigotry etc.. They do believe that all the problems are trumped up, pardon the pun, by the liberals to make Trump look bad. The trouble is he needs no help to look bad. Hate crimes against all minorities have increased by a large number just since the white supremacist groups go the OK from Trump when he gave them the code words "there are fine people on both sides" along with his other despicable actions. Things like pardoning Roger Stone, supporting Kyle Rittenhouse, suggesting the police rough up people arrested and on and on.

Christopher Conway

If this is Rel Kemph I have no desire to engage with you. I know who you are and I prefer to stay way away from you. I will not besmirch you online but I think you know what I am talking about.

Christopher Conway

When apprehending a criminal. Yes, yes I do.
