lol…you lost me at tribe. I won’t be charging at windmills here I assure you. I lean more towards rational and we are not that popular so you may not be aware of people like me who don’t subscribe to zero-sum fallacies. I could never contemplate causing a loss to another while also ironically, deriving no gain for myself. Rather, I see benefits for everyone which would invariably be a benefit for myself.
Your alternative facts about Jeremy Christian is simply just that — alternative facts. Apparently the Portland Police Bureau has it all wrong according to you…
Christian is a known right wing extremist and white supremacist. On April 29, Christian showed up to the right-wing “March for Free Speech” on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla with a baseball bat in an attempt to assault left-wing protesters. The bat was quickly confiscated by Portland police officers. He ranted how he was a nihilist. He’d soon yelled racial slurs (“fuck all you n*****s”) and gave the Nazi salute throughout the day. He yelled “Hail Vinland” throughout the day.
A few Portland police officers on April 29 appeared to be familiar with Christian, but not threatened by him. They claimed he had a head injury and was mentally ill.
But I guess people with belief insensitivity (motivated ignorance) will always see or read only what they want to believe and ignore actual evidence, and verifiable truth. To your credit that sort of mental contorting is impressive and very effective — as far as winning elections. It’s no wonder why you and others feel like you are winning. I have written about this as well below and you have partially answered that for me.
