What...it's a legitimate observation. You claim the rioters couldn't have been democrats because they had trump gear...dems can buy that stuff too.
Not my claim.

My claim is that one group rioted for political reasons (as was demonstrated by their clothing, their paraphernalia, what they chanted). The BLM protesters didn't demonstrate any such political motivations.
The argument isn't about why they did it, its about, potentially, who did it. You guys seem to be certain that right wingers were responsible for the riot damage across the country, and discount the possibility that left wingers could have infiltrated the 1/6 riot. Yeah, I'd say thats a double standard.
No, that's not a double standard.

That is just reality...something you have a lot of trouble dealing with.

Hence the dozens of conspiracy theories you keep buying into and spinning. Deep down...of course, you don't believe any of these. If you do; you need psychiatric help.

Well, there was fast and furious.
LOL... It would be like saying that Carter's wreckage from the hostage rescue attempt was impeachable because some weapons were left behind in the smoldering wreckage of the helicopter.
In both impeachments, evidence was circumstantial. In the first one, there was no report or evidence that ever said conclusively that trump collided with Russia.
Collided? LOL. It was documented time and again that officials from the Trump campaign met with Russian intel. Not sure why you're bringing it up...that wasn't what he was impeached for.
In the second impeachment, again, you took circumstance and used it as the basis for impeachment. You omitted "peacefully and patriotically", and pasted a bunch of unrelated statements together to fabricate a narrative.
Yes and then he said he "loved" the rioters and that they were "very special". I do like your "logic" though.... The guys were going to riot at the Capitol but they just happened to stop along the way and listen to the blob... Makes zero sense.

It was about using foriegn aid to get the Ukrainian President to act against Trumpybears political opponents. Nothing to do with Russia's aid during his 2016 Campaign.

McConnell even agreed he was responsible for the MAGAMOB's occupation of the Capitol.

Republicans plants at antifa riots is about as plausible as antifa plants at the 1/6 riot.

Each side should take responsibility for their actions.

I'm willing to admit it was bone head Republicans that rioted on 1/6, but you're not willing to admit it was antifa and democrats responsible for the billions in damage during all the city riots.

The only way you're gonna get anything meaningful accomplished by the GOP is to infiltrate that mofo and get that ball rolling yourself.

No, it was obviously pre planned, hence the gallows that ended up there as well as the rioting starting before trump concluded his speech. What I'm saying is, you took fragments of his speech and other speeches from Giuliani and concluded that somehow, without actually telling the people to riot, that they somehow, masterfully used psychology on the masses to get them to attack the capitol.

I agree with you, he should have come out and made a statement as soon as he saw what was happening, and for that, he bears the blame, but there is no evidence that he called for it, nor intended for that to happen.

He promised a "wild time"; on a Wednesday in January when he just happened to hold a rally....

For me to know and you not to find out.
Who are the "demrats" and where is this "one party collectivist state" you speak of. I see a nation rising up from the heel of the wannabe authoritarian dictator who tried to stage a coup on January 6th.

The Republican Party has become a fascist anti-democratic anti-Constitutional cult of personality.
STFU Canuck. Democrats are all about the permanent far Left one party state.
