    The Democrats did not.

    You're trying to pretend as if they did, they would, or they have. And you do that fantasizing in complete bad faith.

    That's why all your arguments always hinge on hypotheticals, the parameters of which you constantly change and move. Or why you leave empirical evidence out, or drift toward the bad habit of oversimplification.

    You can't read. I didn't say they would be just as bad. Their actions would be perfectly justifiable. But it shows we are willing to use the same methods as we did in the Revolution, Civil War......

    What I said is that one side tried to pull off a coup and the other side did not.

    You are trying to pretend the other side did, would have, or already has for the sake of your posturing on JPP.

    They've done nothing...Flash is pretending as if they would for the sake of his flailing bOtHsIdEs argument on JPP.

    Flash also lies about supporting Trump. Slightly more educated than the typical right winger here, but no less mendacious.

    Right.

    All Flash can argue in are hypotheticals (within which he controls all the parameters) because reality doesn't dictate that both sides are the same.

    Yes, we all know that. When one party does something bad the other doesn't have to do the same thing to prove the parties use the same methods. You have to look at overall history, not one event to duplicate. That is truly binary thinking.

    I see. Trump said it, you believe it, that settles it.

    That is what you said, Flash.

    That Democrats, who wouldn't even exist as a party anymore if Trump were a dictator, would be just as bad as Trump if they tried to overthrow the dictator.

    To think one side is "better" than the other is truly delusional. You want to think your side is more moral, smarter, and everything the other side thinks about themselves.

    Both sides are deluded by thinking they are superior and when others can't accept such simplistic thinking they are shocked.

    Because it doesn't seem like you do.

    It seems like you think that Democrats have already done what Republicans did on 1/6.

    Violently attacking the Capitol during a full session is the same as not doing it. I'll give that one to my logic class.

    Yes, Flash, yes it does.

    That is how "same" works.

    That is how the English language works.

    Don't use the word "same" if you don't understand what it means.

    Ah "overall history"...OK, so what "overall history" are you looking at here? Because the Democrats didn't launch an insurrection to prevent the certification of election results.

    No, Flash, you're delusional because you think both sides are the same, but you don't have to show how they're the same.

    You don't want to have to do the work because you're a lazy, entitled prick.

    Let's be honest, after all.

    We are just supposed to accept your assessment because...because...why, again? Who the fuck are you and what fucking authority do you have to make these kinds of judgments?


    You want to think your side is more moral, smarter, and everything the other side thinks about themselves.
    Only one side launched an insurrection with people wearing "Camp Auschwitz" shirts.

    Only one side screamed "Hang Mike Pence".

    Only one side lied about the election results.

    Only one side has "very fine people" on it.

    Only one side called COVID a hoax and tried to downplay it for three months, before casting blame on everyone else while trying to take credit for a vaccine that was already being developed before Trump finally got off his ass to expedite its approvals.

    Only one side felt compelled to lie about mail-in ballots on JPP.

    Only one side feels compelled to lie about personal given circumstances in order to lend credibility in a debate where they have none along the facts.

    Which side?


    Both sides are deluded by thinking they are superior and when others can't accept such simplistic thinking they are shocked.
    You seem to have a pretty crippling inferiority complex if you're manifesting this much contempt or hatred because you are perceiving that one side thinks its superior to the other because the other is full of "very fine people" who bought a lie from a reality TV show host.

    One thing both sides are united in is their resentment of you.


    "Can't you see we our superior" say the white supremacists.
    Well, we're not the ones who tried to overthrow and cancel election results because too many Black people voted for Biden.
