The people who think Jan 6 was an insurrection most likely also believed these well known lies (at least at some point):

  • Jussie Smollet
  • Hunter Biden laptop
  • Nick Sandmann
  • Bubba Wallace
  • Covid came from bat soup
  • BLM was peaceful
  • the "fine people" lie
  • Biden is mentally fit
  • Ivermectin is horse dewormer

Is there a solution to help these people? They're being played as fools but don't know it.
Or people who believed Hillary Clinton was running a pedophile ring out of a pizza shop basement?

But this condition is fairly widespread in one form or another, is it not? For example, in the last federal election, the Conservative party won the popular vote, with Liberals only getting 32.6% of the vote, yet they run our country, and have even ganged up, and offered power to a socialist party that only garnered 17.8% of the popular vote.

ltr
Are you really upset that two parties that received collectively >50% of the votes cast are cooperating in government while a party that won about a third of the votes is left in opposition?

Besides, the CPC loves FPTP. The only electoral system they would like better is 'only Alberta gets to vote'.

Since no one is willing to answer the question, here are the names and causes of the 5 deaths:

Kevin Greeson, 55, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease.

Benjamin Phillips, 50, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease.

Roseanne Boyland, 34, died by accident from acute amphetamine intoxication.

Ashli Babbit was shot by capital police.

Police officer Brian Sidnickj dies of natural causes on Jan 7.
If natural causes, how many other days has the Capitol Police had 3 deaths due to 'natural causes'?

What about all the injuries Capitol Police received? Or do blue lives only matter when it's convenient?

A death by natural causes is a death by natural causes. But, I get it...you can't claim they were killed so now you're scrambling for something to cling on to.

Get a life.
I think one can say that heart attacks and strokes can be triggered by extreme stress. It rather stretches credulity that it just so happened that those deaths happened on a day the Capitol Police were faced by a violent mob storming the Capitol. And were there delays in these three people receiving medical care caused by said angry violent mob?

You are conveniently ignoring the >100 casualties and pretending the mob was peaceful. I imagine you were more outraged by the rioterd looting Target during the BLM protests.

Colbert and a few of his staff were "arrested" for his orchestrated and premeditated entry into a Capital building.

Anyone want to guess how long they'll stay in jail? 18 months like some non-violent trespassers from Jan 6 or out in a couple days with a token fine? Or are they out already?
You mean a small camera crew filming a comedy bit on invitation of legislators was briefly detained and released?


Only a liar would equate that to a violent mob smashing windows, assaulting officers, smearing feces on walls, destroying property, storming the Senate chamber and congressional offices, stealing documents and other property.

They didn't try to kill Mike Pence because he was hiding in a closet? I suppose this is true in a way. Kind of like the 2014 Parliament Hill shooter didn't try to kill Harper as he was hiding in a closet.

Do we though? Singh shouts at twitter but ultimately we have two far left parties and then one center-left party. Unless PPC ever becomes relevant and gives third option (center-right), we are essentially two party system.
And you can see that trend happening in majority of the world, with increased politicization everything is trending towards two-party system, whether the 'party' is under one name, or under 'coalition' - voters essentially have two choices.

That's why it is more important than ever to have extremely strong constitution and human rights protection. Sadly, Canada is only 'first-world' country that has notwithstanding clause and human rights are optional.
If CPC is centre left and PPC is centre right, what would a party have to advocate for you to consider them far right? Gas chambers?

Overton window in Canada is entirely in the left? That doesn't even make sense.
