US Conservatives have also fawned all over the leader of the Italian Fascist party who recently became Prime Minister in Italy.

Yeah, it scares the crap out of me to see fascists gain power in countries that were almost destroyed by the same bullshit a few decades ago.
The most chilling for me was watching a whole party calling for "Lock Her Up" without a single shred of evidence of a crime, or even a law that was broken. They actually think challenging them is a crime and insurrection and treason is patriotism!

Why shouldn't progressives be poked fun at? You ridicule people all the time. And why should SOURCE take a back seat to CONTENT?

The interesting part for us is that you project all of the characteristics of Conservatives onto Liberals as a way of ridiculing Liberals.

Trump Comments on Manhattan DA's Investigation
As reported in Trump says he expects to be arrested Tuesday as DA eyes charges - CBS News, former president Donald Trump yesterday posted on Truth Social:
Donald Trump:
THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
...
PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!
I think Trump is right, people should protest, and just as on January 6th of 2020 they should fight for what they hold dear. They should break into the offices of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Brag and wander the halls intoning in a sing-song voice, "Alvin?...Alvin?...Where are you Alvin?" House Speaker Kevin McCarthy can provide exclusive video to Tucker Carlson and only Tucker Carlson so he can show how peaceful it was.

Trump Wins Supreme Court!
Supreme Court Quashes Trump Indictment
Supreme Court calls for election fraud review. May overturn election
In a most startling turn around in US history SCOTUS, acting on an emergency appeal against New York state’s power to indict, quashed the state's indictment of Trump saying there is a question whether a state can indict a sitting president and Trump may be the sitting president when massive voter fraud is considered.
Then in a separate addendum to its order SCOTUS called for arguments on Tuesday April 25 to determine whether, due to voter fraud, SCOTUS should void the last presidential election reinstating Trump as the elected president.
Despite the date of these announcements Trump supporters are ecstatic at this sudden turn of events.

Re: Trump Wins Supreme Court!
Thanks! You just gave my heart a stress test and it passed. I read your headlines but couldn't find it on any news feeds, and then came back and read the rest.

Just like creos. Circular sourcing.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
