    Not sure why this is in the Trump thread? What Cruz did is a bad look, but has nothing to do with Trump.

    Did anyone die during the Kavanaugh hearings? I mean by the same standards. Some cop have a stroke in Minneapolis or Kenosha or Portland who was anywhere near the riots? Some are counting the cop suicides as capitol riot deaths too. Choking on a donut is not dying on the job in the same sense as the POs in New Mexico this week.

    Bad people doing bad things was not just enabled but celebrated for years (going back to Kavanaugh, Ferguson and more). You let kids fight in the halls and you don't get to be apoplectic when they eventually bring it in the classroom.

    Serious question - what happened to this guy? Anyone here still think he was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher as our trusty media immediately insisted?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/11/u...ng-attack.html

    Anyone care to admit that 2/5 (possibly 3/5 pending Sicknick autopsy) deaths coming from heart attack/stroke could be construed as padding your stats a bit? Only GSW I have seen reported is Babbitt - pretty slow day by Chicagoland standards.

    No! These people are the modern equivalent of the brave men storming Normandy to defeat fascism. Forceful suppression of opposing views and violent riots is totally normal- to some.

    It’s no secret the Pop-Eyes chicken sandwich has sort of become the official sandwich of the inner-city just like the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks has become the official drink of the suburbs.

    We had an awkward deal with school along those lines. Law Review is supposed to be a really prestigious thing. Top 10% of the this competition thing we do. You submit your writing without a name. Really the school has no way of being biased against anyone.

    One of the black kids wrote a letter to the school complaining that there wasn't any black students who placed in the top 10%. We got like 5 in the entire class out of like 350 so the fact none of them got on wasn't surprising. Posted it in our class Facebook group to brag that he was standing up to the school's injustice or something like that. School backed down and let a few of the black students in.

    Now you got some black kids there...but everyone knows why they are there. It looks good on their resume, but now everyone knows you are literally a token.

    Perhaps I should have written a letter than both the Great Plains, the Catholics, and Republicans are underrepresented...probably could have gotten on as well.
    Sort of along those same lines. Our city council talked about city and state grant fuding for businesses. Keep in mind 65% of our population is hispanic down here. They talked about adding the question to prioritize funding for "historically oppressed" populations. One of the Counsil members that introduced this part that was eventually adopted literally said "giving relief to a person with a historically oppressive background seems like a bad use of money". When the grant rolled out online it asked if ownership was part of a historically oppressed group, which included women so we were able to check "yes" as my wife is part owner fortunately.

    Oddly during the pandemic and during the unrest in the streets we were called more than a few times just asking if the ownership was minority owned. It scared me to answer with a no.

    Boebert, a first-time candidate who defeated five-term GOP incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton in the state's June primary, has expressed support for the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, saying in May she hopes it "is real."
