That's because cops would rather kill than capture.

Arrested more people voicing in favor of  more democracy then they did against those using violence to overthrow it. 

Anyone else think both parties want the republic to fail at this point? I mean no one in government or a position of power seems to think that the representative republic is something worth saving so they won't even bother to try. And yes I know about the 48 democrats who are trying to pass it but I wonder if that situation is just to show ' oh we tried but the fascists take over was inevitable and the true will of the people in the end'.

Trump's term broke something in me over this nation and now it just seems like it doesn't even want to be saved from the next right wing coup.

"Today, Congressman Jamaal Bowman joined a voting rights non-violent direct action at the...."

What a weird way to avoid just saying "protest".

A Democratic congressman from New York was arrested during this protest.  Fark off with that BSAB bullshiat when the contradictory evidence is in the farking article.

And yes the national democratic party is seemingly unconcerned with what the Republicans will do to the nation the next time they seize power.

Yes they release lots of statements of concern but for any hard action against those actors standing in the way of their agenda they have done nothing more then shake their fingers.

To deny that the democratic party isn't doing much at any level to even try to protect the republic is base tribalism on your part and serves little purpose but to try to cloud the issue.

I can never tell if anything's a simulpost anymore, but close enough!

Because individuals from the Democratic Party seem unconcerned doesn't mean the party itself, is, even if they're not as active as you'd like.  Point your finger at the guilty, sure, but at least credit those who are trying.  And, spoiler alert, those people are almost exclusively Democrats.

I don't want to defend the Democratic Party any more than this, but FFS, pulling the "both sides" card on something like this is just stupid.  Impotence is not malevolence, and Republicans are farking malevolent, and if progress is going to be made I guaran-damn-tee it's going to be Democrats driving it, because who else will?

Just because individual members are concerned doesn't mean the party as a whole is. No Democrats in positions of real power are doing anything to stop Republicans, and a number of them have made public statements of support for the Republicans party. People who oppose fascism don't have friends who are fascists, or say that the country needs a big, strong fascist party.

I agree, there are some individual Democrats who are a problem.  And they need to be replaced with better progressive politicians in the Democratic primaries.  Pelosi needs to surrender leadership to someone more aggressive for the progressive causes  I won't defend the Democratic Party as "awesome" or anything above "generally tolerable" but both-siderism doesn't help anyone but the Republicans.

How many of the traitors who stormed the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 were actually arrested during their crime on that day and taken away in cuffs while the planned insurrection was underway?
