    Well, it's about their religion. And TBH their interpretation of Christianity ("do what I want or I'll kill you cuz GOD REASONS") lines up well with the history of Christianity since at least the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

In each instance, the leaders laugh at their supporters as they spread this poison. The leaders are educated and wealthy and don't share these bigotries at all. They are simply the tools the rich use to radicalize their victims to the point where they will be suicide bombers. Hitherto, the bombing was voting. Since 1/6 they may have inaugurated the next more literal phase.
    Can we just be honest with ourselves, they are Racists. Instead of the other R word, just use Racists. They own it now, it's impossible to deny. Soon, they may even embrace the label- who knows.

    And it's also NOT about religion. Unless that's worshiping money. God has nothing to do with this. Their jesus hoards money, and hates people that are different.

    Yep. And to be fair Mainstream Press plays it up too. Local news here keeps finding ways to talk about how Minneapolis the City is dying cause everyone is moving to the suburbs. Last year Minneapolis had an 3% INCREASE in population.

    Then it gets framed in the "crime/unrest" is the reason businesses and people are "leaving" when in reality it has more to do with the astronomical rent, the growing desire for remote work (both on the business and employee side) and because as people age and have families they just tend to prefer the city less.

    Faux takes it to a while new level. According to their viewers on Twitter I am living 7 miles from ThunderDome and Mad Max is on the way...
    It’s like that for any city of a decent size that has Democrats in control. They do the same thing with Anchorage for fucks sake.

    Feelings over reality, again. How is that Racists are so incredibly sensitive??? The way they treat others should mean they have characters of steel.

My dad - who lives here in MA - tried explaining to me that my friends that live in Portland don't really know what's going on there, but he does. I was flabbergasted.

    Pretty sure he thinks he's being reasonable by suggesting the Minneapolis and Portland riots were left-wing disturbances. And that whole CHAZ/CHOP neighborhood anarchy in Seattle.

    At some point, I don't even get the social issues. Other than pretending to pass laws about abortion, Racists have still not had a single policy or real programs out there to suggest to people to carry babies to term- all they try to do is prevent abortion by making hard.

    If you REALLY want to have a social thing happen, don't just prevent the alternative, highlight what they want.

    But all these "christians" do is embrace the party of NO and Racism.
