Having lived in Nebraska sometimes it was hard to classify any of them as people.

Dr. DJ Duckhunt: They are no black people in Iowa.


There are, but almost all of them live in Waterloo. Which is where I live.

Waterloo is one of the most racially-divided cities in the entire United States, economically-speaking. I worked for one of the larger employers in the area for 12 years, and during that time, I think there were maybe a dozen non-white people that worked there. And all of them but one were women. But that was because the company was a roiling-cesspool of management-endorsed misogyny. And racist, too, of course.

My current job...there are no black people that work there. About 150 employees, all white.

It's a messed-up town, is what I'm saying. The most messed-up part being that there is very little racially-motivated crime, or even any kind of explicit acknowledgement of the situation, from either side. Everybody knows it, everybody just puts up with it.  We did finally elect a black mayor a few years ago, though. That counts as progress, I guess.

"Other protesters told CNN that any physical contact with the officer was inadvertent and minor"

I wonder if this defense actually works?

Facts FirstUnlike the people who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, the Iowa protesters walked lawfullythrough security-- getting their belongings scanned and their temperatures checked. The Iowa protesters even had apermit to protest in the building. The building is open to the public anyway. And the protesters did not disrupt legislative proceedings once they were inside.

Call me crazy, but that seems like quite a difference compared to what happened on January 6th.

Dr. DJ Duckhunt: They are no black people in Iowa.


I guess you haven't met Steve. He says that he's 1/16 black. On his mother's side. I don't know if he's telling the truth or not, but as he's a nice enough guy I'll let him say so without questioning him. Most of the locals givr him a wide berth. Cross the street when they see him walking towards them. Put the change on the counter instead of in his hand when he buys something in a shop. That sort of thing. It's a damn shame, but he won't let it get him down. People do say he's the coolest guy in Iowa, even though they clutch their handbags close to their chest when they see him.

My stepfather was hired as a consultant for a hospital in Keokuk Iowa in the 70s.   They paid him a shiat ton of money.

So my blonde mom and i went up to see about living there.   They offered dad a metric ass ton of cash.

"A false initial claim gets shared over and over, reaching an ever bigger audience..."

Yes, propaganda only works through constant reputation.

And accusing your opponents of things they didn't do but you did is SOP as well.

How about we condemn all terrorism.  The left finds that easy, and it's part of why we have maybe one left one terrorist attack for every 300 right wing terrorist attacks in the United States


Let's see you condemn the January 6 insurrection attempt.  Until you do that: shut the fark up.

And it was a right-wing group that burned down the police precinct and a couple stores in Minneapolis (as well as who knows how many other incidents) last year. And it was a right-wing group that murdered cops during the BLM protests.

Almost like there's a pattern.

Can you even name the last time you heard about a terrorist act that was spurred on by liberal politics occurring in the US?

I mean proper terrorism, mind you, not stuff like getting ratioed on twitterbook or snapgram.

Maybe start treating it like you've (by that i mean the US) been treating other terrorism for a while now. Bonus being that the right wing in the US is so pampered by society and so used to getting their way that interrogating "enemy combatants" could be far easier. They'd fold like cheap laundry before Enhanced Interrogation was even hinted at.
