When the Ayatollah manages to convince thousands of Americans to gather, overrun the capital building, and kill a police officer, then we can ban him, too.I never really understood what gaslighting was until I read this thread.
The leader of the free world is banned from Twitter while the Ayatollah Khamenei remains. Let that sink in...
He's already "convinced" thousands of terrorists to behead people, blow people up, or murder them by immolation...so...When the Ayatollah manages to convince thousands of Americans to gather, overrun the capital building, and kill a police officer, then we can ban him, too.
And what makes this even more hurtful for me, is that there were multiple Republican candidates very worthy of this countries votes....but instead the party chose what will probably go down in history as the worst candidate, and then elected President of all time. Just mind boggling. We ask ourselves, how could a person (for a more extreme example, Hitler) possibly be a popularly supported person placed into a leadership role, and then all we have to do is look back to 2016, and look in the mirror.
Some times there is a need to go beyond uprights etc. Our country is in a difficult period and we NEED to start listening and understanding each other to make it " A more perfect union". Having a common interest in our cars should tell us we have a common interest in each other as well.Isn't time to close this thread ?
I was just humbly thinking that we are on a nice builder and fans forum so speaking of welds , tubes , uprigths isn' it more interesting than listening or watching what all TV news are reporting anyway ??????
Isn't better to concentrate on our passion , toys and family safetey ?
Beg pardon to all previuos posters ... it is only my 2cts .......
I like your intent and this meme —Some times there is a need to go beyond uprights etc. Our country is in a difficult period and we NEED to start listening and understanding each other to make it " A more perfect union". Having a common interest in our cars should tell us we have a common interest in each other as well.
Are you just trying to be inflammatory?When the Ayatollah manages to convince thousands of Americans to gather, overrun the capital building, and kill a police officer, then we can ban him, too.
Fair enough Dave, I was a bit flippant, especially in the light of that afterglow - an event that will live in infamy.Does anyone care about the truth anymore? I am not a Trumpist or whatever the term is. I do love the Constitution of the United States.

Is it possible to be blinded by hatred?
Yes, he obviously 'convinced thousands of Americans to gather'. This is true.
Yes, the media keeps telling us the narrative that you are pushing, but I have yet to see footage or hear audio of this "incitement". We all know that when Trump so much as mis-speaks, the media runs clips of it 24-7. Please enlighten me. The entire rally speech transcript is easily found online.
Here's the portion where he mentions the Capitol building:
"We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period. We’ve set it on a much straighter course, a much … I thought four more years. I thought it would be easy. We created-
Donald Trump: (19:03)
Four more years, I thought it would be easy. We created the greatest economy in history. We rebuilt our military. We get you the biggest tax cuts in history. We got you the biggest regulation cuts. There’s no President, whether it’s four years, eight years, or in one case more, got anywhere near the regulation cuts. It used to take 20 years to get a highway approved. now we’re down to two. I want to get it down to one, but we’re down to two."
I only quoted his speech because that is what the 'News Channels' are specifically pointing at when they say Trump incited the riot. And what Twitter and Facebook are pointing at for trampling 1st Amendment rights.I feel you have cherry picked here - quoting his speech, which undoubtedly was viewed and washed beforehand by speech writers and helpers to be a) publishable b) not exhibit A in a subsequent law suit.
