I'm still struggling with the current US RWNJ meme of Antifa being terrorist anarchists/fascists, in such great numbers they are organised all over the US and inspiring looting in 50+ states and the many smaller cities within them.

It is obviously so much better for a democracy to have full on Nazi / white Supremacist Militias parading around the streets. The double standard is immense. With one alleged Antifa group/guy getting hammered on social media for using his 2A rights to protect protesters whereas armed MAGA exercising their 2A to "defend" are a good thing.

Go figure. Meanwhile not sure why the armed militias are not out protesting the curfews. Surely not something to do with politics as opposed to freedumbs ?

Resurfaced Trump interview about Tiananmen Square massacre shows what he thinks of protests...

Less than a year later, Mr Trump gave an interview with Playboy magazine that was positioned as a tease of a future in politics. He said wasn't impressed with the Soviet Union or former President Mikhail Gorbachev, who lost control of Russia because he didn't have a "firm enough hand".

When asked by Playboy writer Glenn Plaskin if he meant a "firm hand as in China", Mr Trump said the Chinese government almost blew it when students poured into Tiananmen Square.

"Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength," he said.

"That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak... as being spit on by the rest of the world."

In the same interview, Mr Trump predicted that Russia's president would be overthrown for showing extraordinary weakness that would lead to a violent revolution and destroy the Soviet Union.

In defending the comments during the 2016 presidential debates, Mr Trump drew more criticism for calling the Tiananmen Square protests "riots".


I wonder what he thinks of Putin's handling of protestors...

IIRC, Rudy Nelson backed the PRC's handling too.

Funny how he changed his tune, as he'd been parroting the administration's views in prior videos.

It's what happens when you hire an actual, rather than a faux, patriot. Trump seems to have learned his lesson, though Esper's likely on his way out.

My favorite comment gleaned from recent Trump tweets:

"Stephen Miller's wife has tested positive for Covid-19. Proof that it does indeed jump from bats to humans".

Remember how many RWNJs on TNP were cumming in their shorts when Mattis was named SecDef?

Yeah.
