I am certain these other groups have been denounced here.  So why is it a problem to call out these jerks in Compton too?   

Who said it was a problem? 

It’s horrendous. 

I’m getting the feeling that if there weren’t multiple statements of that obvious fact, it has been interpreted as “oh, I guess “they” don’t have a problem with it”.

That is ugly.

Haven't seen any denunciation here of BLM either. Two innocent officers were ambushed but when a white kid goes to Wisconsin and shoots some protesters, there is definitely denunciation of Trumpers. This is even a pattern. After BLM flareups, officers are ambushed like in New York and Dallas. 

You’re painting that same old picture of everything being a BLM problem. 

It is as if you don’t/ can’t acknowledge that most BLM supporters have nothing to do with, nor accept/condone the  violence and criminal behavior seen under the reporting of “BLM”.

well i mean it was "literally shrugged off" here as in you literally made up that I literally shrugged it off.    I did call it dumb **** though, I would assume you agree that it's dumb ****, not sure what's controversial about that.  Maybe you think it's smart ****, IDK, that's for you to figure out chief.  I definitely think it's dumb ****.

I'm just pointing out hypocrisy. When Kyle Rittenhouse goes to Wisconsin and shoots protesters, it's Trumper rhetoric. There isn't a "most Trumpers don't accept or condone violence." When Trumpers block a hospital ambulance entrance in Lansing, there isn't a demand for video proof. It's accepted. We haven't addressed that an assassination attempt was made on two officers following BLM protests. Not the first time that has happened.

Chief it's actually that your claims aren't credible without video.   You're welcome for the help, but sorry about the rep you forged for yourself.

And your last sentence joins the shooting and BLM protest. Why?

No answer necessary.

The anti-police and defund the police rhetoric going on wouldn't trigger some nutcase? We saw it before in Dallas. It happened in New York. 

I'll have to remember this when a Trumper goes shooting and everyone blames Trump.

the old "You aren't talking about what i want you to talk about, therefore you a hypocrite"

Same tactic as Fox News and all the righties....  Remember a few weeks ago a meme going around why it wasn't the lead story that 63 kids were found in a sex ring and captured from a double wide in Georgia or whatever.

Because it didn't happen. 

 

But they want to try to shame you into a condone by default since you didn't specifically condemn.

And there's the false choice.  "Why is this ok but not this?" and you show two completely unrelated things.  That's the favorite among the old Trump crowd, the crazy uncle, etc.

What point have I brought up that didn't happen? Hypocrisy by Trumpers is brought up here all the time.

you keep bringing up the reactions to protests to the reactions of murder.

Getting outraged over a murder is legit.  Getting outraged over someone protesting is silly.  People protest all the time over anything.

I was bringing up the reaction to Kyle Rittenhouse murdering protesters vs the reaction to these officers attempted assassination. 

I was then bringing up the reactions to the Lansing protests vs the reactions to this protest. They are apples to apples comparisons. No one demanded video evidence that the Trumpers blocked the Lansing hospital. No one said they just say stupid ****. That's not a comparison of protests to murder. That's a comparison of the reaction to two similar protests and the displayed hypocrisy.

I'm also not outraged.

Yes, I know Kyle Rittenhouse wasn't murdered. I mistyped that. I meant to say Rittenhouse murdering protesters. I made a mistake.

There was a short time long ago in a galaxy far, far away I found Cramer somewhat amusing. While it may have been a slip, in normal times in that galaxy far far away this would have grounds for immediate dismissal
