A protest is not insurrection.And in case you haven't noticed, Trump says a lot of things that he never actually follows through with.
I have enjoyed my balance sheet of comittments and accomplishments. While I am sure that it is incomplete, the pros outweigh the cons.

I believe that the lamestream media is dishonest.

And "protestors" that have come from outside the area and who may have been paid to be there are NOT "protestors".
They are mercenaries. And THAT makes it an "insurrection".

In Kenosha roughly 70% of the rioters were from out of town. I suspect that's the case at all of these insurrections.

I've heard people claim these aren't insurrections. The whole point to these riots and looting is to destroy communities, and force politicians to ban police. They want to destroy western civilization. It's not a secret.

President Trump has taken the best approach IMO, sit back and wait for these leftist commies to come to him begging for help.

Protesting and rioting and insurrection are all different things.

Many BLM protestors are truly local minorities who've had a lifetime of negative experience with police.

Many, possibly even most, of the "rioters" are privileged white college-aged kids from the 'burbs. And/or paid provocateurs, including the occasional white supremacist who dresses up like antifa and starts smashing windows and setting fires.

I saw a recent video from PDX, where a black woman found the street blocked by a bunch of white "BLM protesters", who insisted that she didn't understand what was really going on. Wow, that was some first-class noblesse oblige, the leftist version of "white man's burden".

You ride in the insurrection car, you are an insurrectionist.

Remember when Luke told Yoda "I'm not afraid."? Yoda's reply was (as he leaned in closer and squinted) "You will be.".
To paraphrase Yoda's reply, "They will learn.". :devilish:

I have not checked in here in quite a while.
Now I remember why.

No need for personal attacks, solus.
