It is hilarious how gun owners are getting owned by democracy. These laws wouldn't be passed unless the majority of the people wished for them to be passed. It's telling how they react to the democratic action by threatening violence when the action must take place. Gun owners are dangerous and must be regulated and controlled.

Biden, Trump, and every president since Wilson when he unwittingly signed over the country's monetary supply to the Federal Reserve (private bank) have been 'in on it.' Mere pawns of the New World Order. All is theater.

'Meme magic' is real, collective consciousness is real, God is real, Nature is God, God's image is Phi, and humanity is awakening on the cusp of global cataclysm.
Collective consciousness is the plane through which this world is manifest. Yes, really. Good must perpetuate good in the collective consciousness.

Your own source lists 6 different polls with the 3 lowest being 48%, 49% and 52% and the 3 highest being 56%, 60% and 61%. In the lowest support for the ban it's virtually even, in the highest it's a clear majority. And after further analysis your own source concludes:

Well, it did last far longer, result in many more deaths, and result in far more collateral damage as far as burned structured and looted businesses go

>>
>>791314
No, its called whataboutism. It isn't even relevant to this thread because not a single person has come out in support of CHAZ. You are attempting to claim hypocrisy for an argument that nobody in this thread has made. The argument in this thread, at least from me, is that CHAZ wasn't good but the attempted coup was much worse. These two positions don't contradict each other in the slightest.

Objectively, CHAZ caused more damage than Jan 6.
Ethically jan 6 is complicated
The end they were fighting for was bad
The means they were using were ineffective
But the reason of doing was acceptable, ie protesting "a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information"

I wish I could say it was surprising to see people arguing that the CHAZ incident was worse than the attempted overthrow of the government by a sitting president via mob attack on the national legislature because he wanted to stay president. I don't really know what to say to that and to be honest I'm having trouble believing that you guys genuinely believe what you're writing because of how ridiculous it is on its face.

What's your opinion on secession?

>Pointing out the selective outrage isnt whataboutism
It is when you're pointing out the hypocrisy of an argument that the person you're talking to has not made. Its the definition of whataboutism to pivot to the wrongdoing of some completely different group when we're specifically talking about one. "Well other groups aren't treated like this when they do bad stuff" is not a defense of the group we're talking about. Its obfuscation.

>its a demonstration of the selective outrage on the left
You're not debating "the left". You're debating the handful of people in this thread engaging with you. Instead of pivoting to generalized arguments how about you stick to the things that we've actually said.

>>791329
>Objectively, CHAZ caused more damage than Jan 6.
It depends on what you define as "damage". I don't value the property of a few city blocks more than the institutions of democracy we use to keep our country functioning. Also, the January 6th insurrection cost almost half a billion dollars so I don't think this is the hill you want to die on.

>But the reason of doing was acceptable, ie protesting "a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information"
What a crock of shit. Protesting against made up conspiracy theories you've dreamed up to justify your own conservative victim complex is not acceptable, no. If what you're saying is true then the same could easily be said of Fox News, Newsmaxx, OAN and all of the other conservative propaganda outlets these people are aligned with. They don't give a shit about media coverage or the flow of information. They give a shit about power.

It's pretty telling that they have to do that. Deep down they know how fucked up January 6th was and they have a deep need to try to draw equivalencies or to say the other guys are worse as a distraction.

Pretty much. Conservative ideology is incoherent. There is no logical through-line to anything they think or believe because in the end they won't abandon conservatism when logic doesn't agree with them - they will abandon logic. Every thing they argue for is just a post-hoc justification for an emotional bias they had before they even began speaking with you. They can't defend their own ideas with any kind of logical consistency so all they can do is try to vaguely gesture at the hypocrisy of everyone else's. That's why appealing to a sense of anger or outrage is the only argument they can ever really produce. We talk about the actions of the insurrectionists on January 6th and the first thing this anon can think to retort with is "OH, SO THAT MEAN ITS OKAY IF ANTIFA RAPES EVERYONE'S GRANDMOTHER AND SETS MY CHILDREN ON FIRE?". Its honestly pathetic. Debating conservatives should be considered child abuse.

Establishing a percent for societies response to a pattern of behavior is not obfuscation. All summer we heard "mostly peaceful", that now applies to the events of Dec 6 - it was mostly peaceful thus criticism is unwarranted.

So how do you feel about half a dozen murders, rapes, business being looted, burned, and lawlessness?

>>
>>791351
>Establishing a percent for societies response to a pattern of behavior is not obfuscation.
You're arguing against a point that nobody in this thread has made. You've strawmanned us to make it easier to do your vague gesture at hypocrisy without actually engaging with the things we've said. Nobody gives a shit what boogeyman version of the "left" you've dreamed up has said. Engage with what WE have said, anon, not some random lefties on twitter. Its very telling that you have to bring in other arguments that other people have made to engage with me personally. I never gave CHAZ a "pass" so I have no fucking idea why you're citing the general attitudes of "society" in a conversation with me, one singular person.

>All summer we heard "mostly peaceful"
93% was peaceful. Statistically. I can link you to the data. Also, its possible to say that 93% of the BLM protests were peaceful and also criticize the 7% that wasn't. Now you're not even gesturing at things that are contradictory. Now you've just completely abandoned the concept of logical consistency altogether.

>that now applies to the events of Dec 6 - it was mostly peaceful thus criticism is unwarranted
There was one demonstration on January 6th at the capitol. This one demonstration was not peaceful, therefore, 100% of demonstrations to protest the results of the election at the capitol on January 6th were violent.
>>
>>791361
>I define it objectively, not subjectively.
No, you're defining it in terms of physical property damage. Things can be damaged in more ways than just physically. Stop pretending like you know what objective and subjective means. You're embarrassing yourself. Also, the price of physical property is subjective, dipshit.

>Where is physical damage, ie the number of deaths and the dollar amount of loss is an objective value
I'd love to attend whatever dipshit ethics class you went to that told you the death of a human being has an objective value. Wow you are fucking pants on head retarded.
>>
>>791363
>You're arguing against a point that nobody in this thread has made.
The point was made all summer. When the country was enduring some of the worst riots in its history and there was open insurrection in Oregon there was crickets from the left. And you want us to take your arguments seriously now?

Get fucked.

>93% was peaceful. Statistically.
Same deal on Dec 6 :)

>>791363
>93%
Doesn’t that mean there were hundreds of violent ones?
>>
>>791367
>The point was made all summer.
Yes, by some generalized boogeyman you call "the left". You have yet to engage with a single argument I've made. Every time I say something you vaguely pivot to "well what about the left". How the fuck am I supposed to take responsibility for what some other unnamed, mystery people on "the left" who you refuse to name have said? Do you understand how completely moronic you sound right now?

>When the country was enduring some of the worst riots in its history and there was open insurrection in Oregon there was crickets from the left.
You're not arguing with "the left". You're arguing with me. I've never made any of the claims you're accusing "the left" of making. You're actually allergic to engaging with anything I've said.

>Same deal on Dec 6
January 6th. And no, not the same deal. It doesn't surprise me you don't know basic math either.
>>
>>791370
>Doesn’t that mean there were hundreds of violent ones?
Yes. I think the number were something like 200 out of somewhere near 7700 demonstrations.
>>
>>791343
>That's why appealing to a sense of anger or outrage is the only argument they can ever really produce.
Your entire post doesn't really apply to conservatives, it applies to the cult party of Trump which yes many traditional conservatives, but not all, have joined. And it summarizes exactly what their 2020 campaigns were like - no policy proposals, no plans to deal with the domestic, economic and international toxic waste dump that 4 years of mismanagement had turned the US into, just wildly absurd assertions about the Dems and their plan to turn the US into Venezuela, outlaw Christianity and guns, allow China to takeover the US, flood the country with hordes of brown people whose only goals in life are to murder and rape whites, and perhaps the most bizarre of all, Dems would destroy Obamacare, Medicare and Social Security. That was their campaign from Representative on up to the President.
>>
>>791372
>Every time I say something you vaguely pivot to "well what about the left"
Thats precisely the point. All summer a certain pattern of behavior was established as being acceptable, why now should we hold ourselves to a separate standard?

>And no, not the same deal. It doesn't surprise me you don't know basic math either.
There were upwards of 30 000 people at the rally. So far the FBI has arrested ~200. The math works out: Mostly peaceful.

You've said this about a dozen times and not only have you not named a specific person who has done this but you've also used their positions to accuse me, personally, of hypocrisy. Please don't make me repeat this point again because at that point I'm just going to assume you're illiterate.

>why now should we hold ourselves to a separate standard?
I'm going to come off this point because you're actually incapable of engaging with me. All you can do is vaguely gesture at the hypocrisy of "the left" but you don't have any specific claims against any specific people. You speak so vaguely because you have no argument against me in particular so you need to import arguments that other, unnamed people have made in order to dismiss my points. Its pathetic, dishonest, and moronic.

>There were upwards of 30 000 people at the rally. So far the FBI has arrested ~200. The math works out: Mostly peaceful.

You know there is some bullshit cherry-picking going on. Police clashed with protesters so much in Portland (100+ nights straight) that the epa was making the city test the river to see how much capsaicin and tear gas residue was present. So I’m guessing that Portland and Seattle counted as a 2 instead of the 150 or so. 93% is a bulls hit number, there was much more.

You had breathless reporting about how fascism is afoot because some US Marshels spent a couple months trying to stop a mob from burning a federal courthouse.

Holy shit nigger, were you in a coma over the summer?

Only a tiny fraction of those present on the day in question performed acts of violence, thus was mostly peaceful. This is permissible; the new normal.

>>791392
>I stated "objectively" not "subjectively"
The value of property is not objective. The fact that the dollar amount can be written down and the value of a democracy cannot doesn't mean there isn't an argument that one isn't more valuable than the other. You can disagree with the argument if you want. That doesn't mean there isn't one.

>I know you have a liberal arts degree and this is a tough thing for you
You guys need to come up with more than one joke.

>Immaterial things valued based upon personal conceptions are not objective measurements
Irrelevant. The value of a human life isn't objective measurement yet its illegal to kill people. Something's value not being able to be written into quantifiable metrics is utterly irrelevant to the argument.

The data was collected by The Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED). They analyzed more than 7,750 Black Lives Matter demonstrations in all 50 states and Washington D.C. between May 26 and August 22.

I've talked about this before.
I wholeheartedly agree that the vast number of BLM demonstrations were peaceful.
when I was in Oregon last I was in a small town of about 5000 people and saw about seven or eight white people on the corner protesting for BLM.
And yeah man it was 1,000% peaceful

>>791403
A market value and an objective value are not the same thing. Even a "market value" is an arbitrary value we put onto things like currency. "Objective" is not the word you want to use when determining the value of physical objects. "Objective" is an ethical/moral term, "market" is an economic one. "Objective" doesn't mean "quantifiable". You're using those terms interchangeably and its incorrect. Its not my fault you build your arguments like a child who doesn't know the definition of the words they use.

>The cost of a burned police car is objective if done by an impartial party.
Wrong again. The cost of a burned police car is quantifiable in the context of how much was paid for the car and an estimate of what it would be worth in today's market. There is no such thing as an "impartial party" in the context of economics. The word "objective" doesn't apply here. The word "quantifiable" is what you're looking for. A dollar amount is not objective. Its a quantifiable metric. The value of a dollar is arbitrarily determined by an arbitrary system of supply and demand we've instituted for the purpose of economic convenience. Nothing about this system is objective. One person may estimate the car is worth $5000 depending on how available the parts and materials are or how in demand the vehicle is and another person may estimate the car at $3500 because their economic conditions are significantly different. A person who needs a medication may assess that a bottle of pills is infinitely valuable and would pay any amount of money to have it. A person who doesn't need the medication may think the bottle is worthless and wouldn't pay any amount of money. The fact that the same item can be worth many different prices to many different people and markets for many different reasons completely shatters this idea of yours that items have "objective" worth. They don't. You're dumb. You don't understand the definitions of the words you're using.

Read better. What I said is that not a single person in this thread has come out in support of it. You're not debating the people who wrote these opinion pieces - you're debating us. Stop asking random strangers to take moral and ethical responsibility for the arguments that other random strangers have made. I'm not shouldering the burden of an argument that I haven't made. I don't hold that opinion so its not my responsibility to defend it. Expecting me to do so is called strawmanning.

>If you know anything about statistics, you can get it to say pretty much anything you want to.
False. In order to have a study recognized by any sort of scientific body you need to clearly state your methodology for data collection. Methodologies are then analyzed and determined to be either logically consistent with the data collected and the conclusion presented or not. Please, don't pretend like you know anything about statistics. You don't get to "say anything you want". Much like any mathematical discipline you have to thoroughly show your work, clearly define your parameters and then present your findings to a scientific body of your peers. If you have any evidence that the data collection methods performed by this study were dishonest I'd love to see it. If you don't have evidence you're just vaguely gesturing at the data being incorrect with zero factual basis. You're just making baseless assumptions because you don't like the conclusion.

Yes, the insurrectionists. The majority of the country supports the base ideals of the BLM movement while the majority of the country condemns the insurrectionist MAGA cultists.

Any private sale can be done anonymously, and I mean a private sale between two law abiding citizens. Do you think this will reduce the number of gang members that buy guns off the street? Also, most vendors at gun shows are FFL's, so they're still doing the NICS background check.

Better keep your butt buddies in line so you can still have your arsenal to whack off to for a very little while. It's just a matter of time though.
