How many Americans does it take to change a light globe?

13

12 to form a committee to decide whether such change is possible under the constitution.

1 illegal Mexican to be given 10 cents to actually change it. Eventually.

Remember that time when Hilary lost, and hordes of brainwashed, crazed, murderous Democrats attacked federal and state capitols all over the country? Yeah, me neither.

There was the pussy hat march. That was basically the same, right?

From Robert Reich on Facebook
Last night, Capitol Police briefed House Democrats on three potential plots for violence over the coming days:
— A demonstration billed as the “largest armed protest ever to take place on American soil”
— A protest honoring the woman killed by Capitol Police as she attempted to break into the Speaker’s Lobby during the siege
— A plan to form a perimeter around the Capitol, White House, and Supreme Court and potentially execute Democrats as they tried to enter the Capitol
And an article about it - https://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry ... ri18n=true

Would that have been inciting a Pussy Riot?

Perhaps this has been posted elsewhere--I've only looked at a few threads. From the 'Hey, there is a definite trend of dampness associated with water' department, the following. I've quoted the description of the data relevant to the 'those lefties are more violent!' response.

'US police three times as likely to use force against leftwing protesters, data finds'
The disparity in police response only grew when comparing peaceful leftwing versus rightwing protests. Looking at the subset of protests in which demonstrators did not engage in any violence, vandalism, or looting, law enforcement officers were about 3.5 times more likely to use force against leftwing protests than rightwing protests, with about 1.8% of peaceful leftwing protests and only half a percent of peaceful rightwing protests met with teargas, rubber bullets or other force from law enforcement.

“Police are not just engaging more because [leftwing protesters] are more violent. They’re engaging more even with peaceful protesters,” Dr Roudabeh Kishi, ACLED’s director of research and innovation, told the Guardian. “That’s the clear trend.”

But Lemmy, that's just because the biased left-wing news media does not treat milkshake violence with the gravity it deserves. :prof:
