    Will these last few days be peaceful?

    If we can, for a moment, set aside whether or not Trump ‘should’ be pushed out early, let’s assume that he isn’t, will these last few days be peaceful? How confident are we that nothing else of this magnitude will happen?

    Conversely, let us assume that he is indeed pushed out early. Would there be anything else of this magnitude happening? How confident are you in that answer, whether one way or the other?

    They’ll probably be peaceful.

    Look, Trump is probably gone already. He’s probably just packing his bags and getting ready to go back to Mar-A-Lago or Trump tower in NYC.

    I heard rumors he has been moved to Texas for security reasons. No idea if this is true.

    It should be peaceful. I think things like impeachment lessen that likelihood however.

    There is word coming from Twitter that “further violence” played a role in them suspending Trump’s account. In that, they’ve been hearing all over various social media platforms of a second planned attack.

    Does anyone give credence to the rumors?

    They didn't suspend his account, they banned him. But not the Ayatollah Khomeini mind you.

    Unless they have tweets of Trump calling for more violence (they don't or else they'd be all over the place) they are simply using their weight to muzzle someone they can't stand.

    Suppressing speech, even from private companies (especially when said company is more powerful than some state governments) is never good.

    Frankly, all it does is enflame things and put more gasoline on a fire, and tells half the voting public to go piss off. Twitter clearly does not want peace or unity, unsurprisingly.

    This sets a dangerous precedence. If one private company gets to decide who can and cannnot be customers based on political views. Why can’t other companies not offer service to certain political groups? What is a bakery decides to not bake cake for BLM members.

    It’s very dangerous when rules apply to obey group, but not another group.

    So he’s, I predict either way, there will be more violence. The left seems to want it. Or at least, they want to silence and shame all conservatives. Which will lead to violence.

    Do you consider the possibility that many of these people are waiting for word from him before acting? Hence, why he was taken off of Twitter, to eliminate one mode of communication in that regard?

    Why not be banned for this?

    Do you not see how fickle and arbitrary your standard of what is worthy of suppression is? Unless we give people wide berth on this, he who wields the biggest stick decides what is worthy.

    Once again for all the talk of fascism and Trump being dictatorial, the left has no qualms about this sort of quasi-totalitarian behavior, under the guise of "safety " or "the good of country."

    Lol. I knew that’s what you’d say.

    So... have a bail fund ready to go in no way makes people feel enabled to commit a crime. Got it.

    Your hypocrisy knows no limits.

    She in no way endorsed crime. While we saw looting and burning, we also saw the treatment of some peaceful protestors. She condemned the violence.

    Though, I do feel that said fund should do a much better job of being selective with who they offer bail to.
