    What part of "I will no way defend anyone in this video" do you not understand?
    Why would you think saying that inures you from criticism?

    You're posting video from Tucker Carlson. So again: WTF?

    So it's just Fox News that offends you? Should we all be so soft?

    Carlson is an inveterate liar. Fox is a terrible source. Why would you post shit video, obviously meant to skew public opinion, as if it were legitimate?

    The clip is absolute propaganda. It's literally from Rittenhouse's defense attorney. And you wanna pretend these are neutral parties? That this is news?

    I never said anything about neutral parties. I knew it's source. I forgot you can't post anything on MC and have a civil conversation. Everything is blasphemy from the third tier from hell!!!

    Forget I posted anything.

    I havent watched any videos of this event. Nor do I intend to. I have no knowledge to impart.

    Though in a general sense i feel if any person goes to a protest to anti-protest, and you take a gun, you're probably hoping to shoot someone.

    Yeah, but did you consider the source? This actually matters. I don't know why you're getting your back up about it.

    I forgot you can't post anything on MC and have a civil conversation.
    Oh, fuck you. That's wildly unfair to the people who post here.

    (If you meant that personally, to me, then it's still fuck you but you're not wrong. I can't have a civil conversation about Tucker Carlson because he's Tucker Carlson and what the fuck is wrong with you that you'd consider him a source for goddamn anything.)

    Fox News is Entertainment. It's not news. Remove his commentary and the video is all I wanted.

    "I forgot you can't post anything on MC and have a civil conversation."

    "You" as in I, me or Joe Schmoe; the noun of anyone on MatchCut. Not You, Irish.

    But fine, fuck me.

    I don't get how his parents dropped him off there and thought it would end well.

    Yeah the parents' role in this is, ah, puzzling at the very minimum. Wildly stupid, dangerous and fuse-lighting at worst. What was their rationale? Why drive him across state lines for this? Did they scoot him out the car, hand him the gun and say, "Okay have fun, but play nice!" Like at the most extreme end of it, it almost seems they were giving him his first change to antifa-bash, to proudly "protect his country" from...I dunno, "anarchy"? At our most generous, they were....fucking what, exactly?

    Rittenhouse will most likely get away with what he did because he's young, white and this country is a dumpster fire.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    It looks like the Republicans are really worried about Texas turning blue in the next ten years.

    We still don't know what the puncher's side of the story is. Maybe he had a very good reason for punching Rick Moranis in the face.

    From what I understand, it was just a sucker punch and unprovoked.

    This seems unlikely with his reputation as a consumate nice guy.

    I mean, not to mention that someone getting punched in the face and responding with "maybe the attacker had good cause" is kind of icky.

    If it had been a female celeb punched in the face, I don't think that would fly at all.

    Eh, it's still indicative of the ever growing narrative being pushed by far lefters that violence and hate is totally A-OK as long as it's directed at white men.

    Seriously, is there another racial/ethnic/gender group where it has become so acceptable to say you hate them?

    It's like, the basis of socio-political studies in universities now.
