  • I could eat it raw but why when I have fire
The progressive left and their allies the NeverTrumpers have been pushing for a war, maybe they will get what they want, WAR

No, the one in the post below it is clearly photoshopped.   Vanguard already acknowledged his presence among them and denied he was a member.  You are entertaining moon battery.

Sorry, but the physical world doesn't work that way. I see the temple projecting practically in to his ear. Zoom in, anyone can see it.

Really? Is that why the Yankees kept their slaves long after the Revolution, too? Nice try. :thud: :silly:

Yeah and almost 100 years after the revolution began, confederate leaders justified the institution through racial superiority after it had been abolished elsewhere in western civilization.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Some purported photos not being widely displayed:




I'm OK with the sentiment, but not really thrilled it's from an Anarchist.   :shrug:
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Some fellow came out with a book about that stuff....It's still taught in less contentious form, but was the philosophy to justify all sorts of things we might consider grievous. Darwin! that's the guy!

Oh, let's not ignore the profit motive for the ship owners running the golden triangle, either, nor how unpopular slavery suddenly became near their home ports when they couldn't profit off that cargo.

No, it's not.  What you're pointing out is the tapering of the rim's upper corner.  Besides, the group released a statement saying they gave him a shield, but he wasn't really part of their organization.

I agree; no photoshopping.  But, hey, you give the guy a shield and a shirt and he's yours for that point in time anyway.  Hard to argue "he was with us, but not one of us".

Whatever happened to "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Liberals never have been big on Voltaire.

Top line says "Transgender Veteran". Can't make out the rest.

No way should the police allow either side to come into contact with each other.   

This is no different than burning and destroying the Berkeley campus to 'protest' Ann Coulter's sanctioned/scheduled speech.

BLM is a terrorist group.  They don't represent all blacks.

These skinheads and anarchists don't represent us.

Unfortunately, that photo is photoshopped. Look at how the temple of the eye glasses immediately behind his right ear seems to be in front of his ear. There's no borderline. It's photoshopped.


But it seems that he was there:



Note that this picture was taken with a bright flash.

Thanks, you beat me to it. It also came from a media twitter account posted long before the incident.  There were several there you can see him in it.

100% correct on all four counts.

If you can't look at the clear left side, see how the frame tapers into the earpiece, then compare that to the right side, and tell it's not altered, you're engaging in willful denial.

Compare it to this one, where it's part of a sequence of photos, taken by the NY Daily News.  Same group of people together, but looking in different directions than the previous. I suppose it's Photoshopped as well?

Ed, any idea what the symbol on the shields means?

Weird.
Not when you consider the Marxists play identity politics where 'victimhood' is the only price of admission. They don't mind putting together a coalition of 'victims' to go out and 'fight the man' because they see anyone who isn't a victim as either an ally or an enemy.

To me the weird part is why some ugly guy would want to identify as an ugly woman. Queen of the howler monkeys or something...

I thought they were crossed rolling pins.   I think they make pies in their spare time.

That's the symbol of Vanguard America which is a violent arm of The Nationalist Front, a very overt neo-nazi group. What looks like 'rolling pins' are Fasces which is an old Roman symbol for power and authority.
