Not the middle-one as a gesture if in a roadrage or traffic frustration but in 'only one god' type of deal. Christianity of various types (Roman, Protestant, different Orthodoxies, even Boy Scouts, have different systems of fingers and blessings, which are varied how they do it and the symbolic nature of number of fingers and order of crossing, swearing oaths, and such. Blacks (nationalist) and communists do they closed fist deal (ignoring all authority from 'on high.')
QuoteThey intend to tell the jury that when armed teams of Oath Keepers made plans to rush into Washington from Virginia on Jan. 6, 2021, they believed they would be following legal orders from the president himself.Lawyers for the five defendants are set to argue at the trial — which began on Tuesday with jury selection — that the Oath Keepers were waiting on Jan. 6 for President Donald J. Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act, a Revolutionary-era law that grants the president wide powers to deploy the military to quell unrest in emergencies.As the trial in Federal District Court in Washington moves forward, lawyers in the case have said, Mr. Rhodes intends to take the stand himself and testify that even though Mr. Trump never did invoke the act, the Oath Keepers believed that he was going to do so. Their preparations for violence on Jan. 6, he will argue, should be thought of as a lawful attempt to help the president, not as an illegal attack against the United States.
QuoteAs a matter of law, prosecutors say, the act does not allow a president to deputize private armed groups to restore law and order, which the Oath Keepers feared would be lost at the hands of leftist counterprotesters on Jan. 6. The prosecutors have also claimed that Mr. Rhodes invented the Insurrection Act defense well before Jan. 6 to provide a legal fig leaf for his plan to station a heavily armed "quick reaction force" of Oath Keepers in hotel rooms across the Potomac River in Virginia.

When antifa did not show, no Insurrection Act, no Trumpykins deputizing militia, lots of angry chuds with nowhere to go. The Capitol assault was improv, a disastrous one.https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/27/us/jan-6-oath-keepers-trial.html

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on September 28, 2022, 08:16:29 PMYou should watch the latest Styx vid I posted. He rightly points out that your obsessive need to frame the desire for the slightest, modest reforms as criminal is going to result in a backlash that will result in actual fascism. Not really a fan of that but I guess it's what you deserve now. You fucked around and found out...or will.

Quote from: pate on September 28, 2022, 09:51:41 PMYeah, that is pretty laughable as a "threat," it appears to be symbolic.I do not see any evidence of the requisite "trap door" below the fake noose for an actual functional gallows.You will have to do better than that, for credibility's sake!-p

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on September 26, 2022, 08:26:49 PMNah! I think you're a faggot who has to hide behind the same bad jokes everytime you're exposed for what you really are: a communist thug.
Quote from: WOTR on September 29, 2022, 12:35:10 AMI recall hundreds of military generals and privates all signing letters stating that Trump was dangerous, unstable and would lead the world into WWIII. And then he started no wars and pulled out of some that he inherited during his time in office.Then two years ago, Biden was elected and I recall hearing people saying that "the adults are back in power." And now we are looking at the very real possibility of small nuclear arms being deployed and a war spreading out of control. May not love Trump- but I will say that the world did not seem 1/10 as dangerous with him in the whitehouse as a career politician who has taken more money from the arms manufacturers over the last 5 decades than anybody could possibly count. But I suppose that the peons have always made good cannon fodder.
