Are people ever going to stop perpetuating this false story?
I am extremely liberal, but EVEN I understand that the cake story was a NON ISSUE. The gay couple weren't refused service from the cake shop, the cake shop simply refused to make a CUSTOM cake with a dick and balls. They allowed the gay couple to choose any of their hundreds of other non-custom cakes that every customer has the option to choose.
There is NO comparison between that and the level of censorship that big tech is creating in todays world. In fact, not only is it ironic, it's disturbing that I seem to be the only liberal who realizes that a restriction of basic rights is occurring. Do we not want more and equal access?????
What's happening should scare everyone. Put your hypocrisy and partisan politics aside for one moment and use your damn brains.
The thing is I’m not sure I’ve seen liberals advocating violence against elected officials, it might happen but I’m positive they would be banned incredibly quickly as should happen.
"Morning Joe" regular Donny Deutsch saying that "people need to start taking to the street."
Rep. Ayanna Pressley, (D-MA) saying, "There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there's unrest in our lives."
Actor Johnny Depp asking, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"
CNN's Chris Cuomo asking, "show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful?"
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace and former Attorney General Eric Holder condoning violence in the streets.
Kathy Griffin's infamous photoshoot holding a bloody Trump head by the hair and rapper Snoop Dogg using a toy gun to shoot a clown dressed as President Trump.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) telling protesters to harass supporters of the Trump administration.
Madonna saying, "I have thought, an awful lot, about blowing up the White House."
Nancy Pelosi, "I just don’t know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be"
Okay so only the actors advocated violence against elected officials. Wasn’t Kathy Griffin rightfully blackballed over this? Also I don’t give a damn about Johnny Depp, he should be investigated either way. If Madonna and snoop did do that they should be investigated, I’m not backing down from my point I don’t think advocating violence against elected officials is right, and i don’t believe it to be protected by free speech.
Nancy Pelosi said this while children were being separated from their family, it’s a different context and shouldn’t be seen as saying that during BLM. It’s clear she was referring to protests, during that time. In hindsight not the right language, but she certainly wasn’t trying to fan violent flames at the time.
With cuomo he said he was quoting John Lewis. It depends on how you view protests, but I don’t see property as equal to life. I don’t agree with the damage but I certainly won’t say it’s the same as killing or attacking my democracy.
Maxine Walters was talking about a cabinet member in a restaurant, I don’t think it was a good thing to say.
I have no idea about msnbc I honestly don’t watch it.
Also thanks for quoting me out of turn, I was reflecting on my personal experience using social media. I’ve seen plenty of conservatives advocate violence but not any liberals disobedience sure but not violence. Wherever someone advocates rest assured that I would report it. Like I said in my earlier comment there are plenty of things I disagree with democrats on.
The issue right now is that a not insubstantial number of republicans voted to overturn election results based on a lie, directly after the capitol was over run.
Your obsession to make this about both sides is repugnant. It is one side, a large portion of one side advocated overturning a democratic election.
I’m not conflating it with all republicans, and those who didn’t knowingly lie about the election results, and try to overturn shouldnt have any issues. But 147 members of congress did.
