    ???? I ask how you justify saying that taking the knee let to all this violence, and you just state again that taking the knee led to violence without giving any evidence that links the 2 things.

    Your lack of sympathy is not her primary concern at the moment.... But Russia thanks you for your support...

    LOL. So you deny that ever since the left have increased their attacks on social injustice, the George Floyd protests, and Anthem protests that crime has skyrocketed? You deny that?

    Goalposts moving. How do you demonstrate the causation in your claim (anthem protests leading to violence), not just correlation? You haven't even started to do that. By what you've presented, it would make just as much sense to say that the violent protests caused the anthem protests.

    I wonder if Brittney Griner misses the Black Racists within her own Race and the White people hating woke Liberals within the Democratic party.

    I don't think most of us would miss the racists of either race or the hatters of either party - would you?

    LOL. It doesn't take a brain surgeon. But, go ahead, deny it. Even San Francisco has tossed out their DA who's social injustice policies led to a much higher crime rate. I mean, isn't that what Anthem protests are all about, calling attention to social injustice? Well, you did just that, changed things, and now even liberal SF realizes that all it did was make things much worse.

    LOL. I just answered that question in my previous post to someone else who asked the same question. Look, be blind if you want to be and the problems don't get solved. Not only is social injustice not being solved but now you've got high crime rates to boot. What is it with you guys? Over 80% of Americans say the country is going in the wrong direction and the left's and Biden's response is that we should keep on going in the same direction. I can't fix stupid.

    But voters can and, as I said in my other post, even liberal San Francisco ousted their DA who's social injustice policies led to so much crime that even liberals had to throw her out. I mean, isn't that what Anthem protests are all about, bringing attention to social injustice? Well, the SF DA listened to the Anthem protests, did her job accordingly to fight social injustice, and crime skyrocketed so badly that even liberal SF booted her out. And, it's happening all over the country if you just open your eyes. You're acting like cigarette companies decades ago, arguing to prove causation. It's right in front of your face but you can't see it because you are far too busy with instant denials.

    I just like to point out that a lot of Black people and woke Liberals love to make it seem as if White people are the only race capable of Racism and Hate, because Democrats have a habit of ignoring their Racism and Hate from their side.

    All the LOLs in the world won't hide the fact that you haven't even tried to make an argument that the anthem protests have caused violence. That argument would involve things like - riots increasing when taking the knee started in September 2016, people saying they were inspired to violence by the anthem protests etc. Things that actually suggest causation. Again correlation is not causation. But you don't seem to care about that.

    How many people on the left have apologized to china for calling Taiwan a country or rooting for democracy in Hong Kong? Asking for a friend.

    Anyway, if Griner looks at how Biden has abandoned Americans in Afghanistan she would be greatly discouraged. And keep in mind that we had leftists on this board literally blaming those Americans for being left behind and they never committed a crime, Griner did.

    Bury your head in the sand while crime gets worse and worse and worse. I really don't care. I've had it with the left. They have set out to destroy the country and they are accomplishing that, as testified by the fact that over 80% of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction and yet the left's campaign theme is, "Let's keep on going in the same direction". Then you wonder why you lose the Court, why thirty some states are red states, why the House is turning red and why even Trump leads Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, with most experts saying that by 2024 the Senate will also be red. You guys are just blind to the facts. As I previously said, you guys are just like the cigarette companies decades ago, who kept on saying, "show causation". It's right in front of your face but you are too indoctrinated to see it.

    I'm not shedding a tear for somebody too spoiled and too entitled to see their home for the great country it is, and instead cursed it.

    I'll bet she is desperately wishing she was back in this terrible place now.

    I find it amusing that you accuse the left of being blind to the facts when you are the one refusing to provide facts to back up your assertion.

    I think anybody here who believes the US is and always has been a "bad" country ought to put their entitled feet where their mouth is and get out.

    Do you really think it takes a lot of courage to live in one of the best countries the planet has ever seen and bad mouth its very existence? It doesn't. It's the height of being spoiled.

    Millions of people desperately desiring to get in just roll their eyes in disgust... and rightly so.

    true, there is white racists (mostly on the right)

    and there is black racists (mostly on the left)

    but they are a minority of both parties

    Who in the world do you think would apologize (to anybody) for rooting for democracy in Hong Kong?? Does that indicate you aren't?

    And why does EVERY thread remotely connected to Russia end up as a China thread in MAGA minds? You think that actually works??

    Last I checked, they are 2 separate countries, with different leaders and different world problems...

    To answer your first question, liberals. An NBA GM had to resign for wanting democracy for Hong Kong, and people have apologized for calling Taiwan a country. Does CNN not report on that stuff?

    As for your second question, get used to it. After seeing the leftists on this board bring up a former president in EVERY thread, consider this playing by their rules.

    Well she spoke out against America.

    Now spend time in Russia and see if you will be kissing America's ass when you're released.

    You trying to conflate Michelle Obama's perspective that the US was NEVER a great country (which is a perspective many progressive hold) to somebody saying this country has always been great but is threatened is intentionally obtuse.
