Quote of the day—Scott Adams @ScottAdamsSays

I disagree that something like Jan6th “shouldn’t happen again” in the United States.
It’s a feature, not a flaw.

Doesn’t mean the protestors were right. It does mean that if you send signals of fraud to the American public (real or not), the crowd is coming.

Every time.

  1. He is not wrong. While there isn’t proof of enough fraud to change anything (and nothing could have been changes after the states certified their results IMO) there was certainly the appearance of large scale hanky panky in Atlanta and other places. And it is that appearance of impropriety that brings the crowds with pitchforks, torches and righteous anger

    • Exactly. The fraud was in your face. Everyone that doesn’t know that wasn’t paying attention. Or had an agenda.
      And like the guy said. So the most armed society in the history of the world shows up to an insurrection empty handed?
      Scott’s right.
      And the communists are having to show their hand in order to keep power. Including those clowns on the right.
      So ’22 an ’24 are going to be a real challenge for them. Cause next time people might not stay between the velvet ropes like they did J6?

      • If a protest is warranted,

        And they are going to throw your ass in jail and let you rot anyway if you protest fairly peaceably,

        What exactly is the incentive not to do something worth rotting in jail over (if you are going to protest, which people will if they think it is warranted)?

        I don’t think someone thought their cunning plan all the way through.

      • But they are trying to lean on the slender reed of “No evidence of widespread voter fraud.” If someone is assassinated Mafia style with a .22 short to the base of the skull, one is dead but with no “evidence of widespread injury” to the deceased.
        There were certain states that were considered to be “swing states”, and certain districts within them that were the inflection points. Remarkably, those were the states and districts where the election process is questioned today. Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.

        • AZ is in the process of decertifying the vote in the Phoenix and Tucson areas, it seems. That’s the whole state, pretty much. IIRC, several other states are working on it, too.

        • I don’t know what the truth is. I have my suspicions about what it is (as does everyone else).

          I have my doubts as to whether enough evidence will ever be compiled (officially or unofficially) to put the matter to rest.

          Sometimes what matters (at least in terms of what actually happens next) is not what the capital-T Truth is. Sometimes what matters is what a sufficiently large number of people “think” it is, especially if they are “thinking” with their lizard brains (more likely to result in sudden decisive action, even if they are incorrect).

          I’m not sure what the above statement resembles more: trial by mob, or CIA-esque misinformation games.

          But there is some capital-T Truth in it.
