Isn't it ironic how conservatives predicted that Obama would usher in a fascist police state yet now it's Trump who's achieving that reality?

"When the looting starts, the shooting starts."

    That's how conservative work.  The problem is that the people that vote for them are too dumb to recognize this.

    Yet these sort of riots happened pretty much every summer during Obama's administration. Same things, different administration, different talking points, just the same old cycle.

    So, you're saying it is good to allow people to riot, loot and destroy, but wrong to try to stop it?


    How is it "fascist" to quell riots?

    How is it a "police state" to stop looting and arson?

    As for the phrase, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts", it is kind of vague who is referred to as doing the shooting.  Is it the businessowners who shoot at looters, like they did in some cases in the L.A. riots over the Rodney King verdict?  Is it city police? Is it national guard under the orders of the state governor?  Who, exactly?

    If there was none of Obama's fundamental change,  Trump would not have to stop it.
