Sadolite is correct.

The government took up both cases and lost. The officials in California were found by the court to have acted illegally and were said to have exhibited a religious bias against the defendant.

Both men lost money and suffered social ostricism. Both businesses have suffered. One has closed.

 we all know, many of those protesters were chanting “let’s hang with Mike Pence”.

Do you know why we dismiss this liberal charge? Because BLM/Antifa have been chanting, "Death to America/Kill the pigs" and burning flags for years. Yet for you, "Hang Mike Pence" is an "insurrection against America. We dismiss blatant hypocrisy.

I mean - if a group of people believe they have no political power and have are currently being systematically oppressed with individuals in power using their levers of power to maintain those systems of oppression - that sounds like something big enough and severe enough to want to riot about. I don’t agree with rioting - just to say I have no doubt that they believe what they’re saying.
I doubt. Such people do not loot innocent businesses, assault innocent bystanders on the streets, or burn down their own neighborhoods. You believe what they're saying because it fits your own narrative. Nothing more. That's why you excuse their lawlessness.

- doesn’t strike me as the coherent actions or behaviour of people who has even started to believe what they’re saying
And once again reality is judged by the credulity of the liberal, not by facts on the ground. It doesn't "strike" him as....

: because that’s what tends happen when elections are actually stolen.
That is what tends to happen in 3re world liberal hellholes, not America. When cartoons of  the "prophet" Mohammed were published, people died in France, Pakistan, and other Muslim countries. No one died in America. When Rashdie's book, The Satanic Verses" came out, people died in several countries, including European ones. No one died in America.

Most Americans believe in and love democracy and are not willing to Chuck it just because some have and are, misuseing it.

I don’t know how you guys do it - it must be so tiring to be defending things constantly that you know deep down you don’t even beleive.
We simply don't dis-believe, "deep down" what you think we do. What is tiring is debating people who think they know what we believe "deep down" while being unable to acknowledge any reality that contradicts their political narrative.

140 police officers were injured on Jan 6th.
Your "injuries" include stubbed toes. Police officers were killed during the months of BLM/Antifa riots. Can you explain how hundreds of people, bent on insurrection and rebellion against the US, ready to "overthrow" the government did not kill a single officer? Or burn down the capitol?

Every single single thing I just mentioned are indisputable facts.
Not one of them means it was an "insurrection". You are attempting to place a spin on what happened.

The problem is not that we see different realities, the difference between us is in what parts of reality we choose to disregard.
What you chose to disregard is reality. Sorry, real facts in the ground do not agree with your perception, on Jan 6th or at the BLM/Antifa riots.

...is absurd, nakedly hypocritical and transparently partisan.
Discribes democrat liberals perfectly. And actual reality minus the spin bares that out.

To be quite clear,  the description of "I see people solemly singing the national anthem, taking selfies with capitol officers, and having doors held open for elderly ladies." does not match up with "protesters were chanting “let’s hang with Mike Pence”. You can dismiss anything you like, but until you actually address this discrepancy instead of conjuring up an excuse, you are a dishonest partisan hack.

Address the things I saw in the videos I mentioned. Those things do not agree with "insurrections" and "rebellions". Do you deny that no weapons were brought to the capitol on Jan 6th? Do you deny that protestors were let into the building? Do you deny that the atmosphere inside the capitol was mostly jovial and festive? Do you deny that Pelosi denied Trump's request for additional capitol police? Do you deny that not a single arrested person has been charged with rebellion or insurrection?

The only dishonest partisan hack here is you.

Which branch of "the government" was responsible for taking up the cases? And if "the government" lost both cases, I guess I don't see how they were harmed by "the government" since by definition, the baker and the photographer prevailed in court. Which again, I support, they have their right to refuse service, which is what the courts upheld. 

Both men lost money and suffered social ostricism
Social ostricism is not a penalty applied by either the law or the government. It's applied by society.

I don't need to address anything. I haven't made any claims, you have. And when confronted with a contradiction to that claim, you deflect. When you get called out for deflecting, you deflect again.

You wrote a whole post about how the left and right look at the same thing and see opposite realities, using Jan 6th as your prime example. The question is, why?

When I pointed out to you that 140 officers were injured you immediately leapt to stubbed toes, completely ignoring the officer who lost a finger, another who lost consciousness after being shoved into a wall, plus multiple officers who suffered concussions and rib fractures. Why?

When I reference the dozens of videos showing the mob forcing their way through the police barriers, smashing windows and climbing in, outnumbered officers retreating from their posts guarding the US Capitol, you ignore all of that to point to the selfies they took. Why?

You made your answer obvious; because you think hypocrisy is fine as long as you can concoct it within the other side.

You claim that conservatives dismiss this occurrence because the left doesn’t seem to care about Antifa/BLM. In other words, you’re justified in your hypocrisy as long as the other side does it too.

When it was pointed out to you that the mob you described as festive roamed the halls of the Capitol chanting “hang Mike pence” you dismiss it as a liberal charge. No, it’s an empirical verifiable fact.

The problem for you is that you’re not having a conversation with anyone here, you made that clear by asking myself and multiple others to justify Antifa/BLM riots or explain how Jan 6th was an insurrection. As far as I am aware no one in this thread made those claims, I certainly haven’t. You’re just engaging in a talking point tit-for-tat.

If you want to have a conversation about the BLM riots I’d be happy to give you my perspective, but not until you can either justify your own hypocrisy and blatant willingness to ignore what happened on Jan 6th, or just admit that what we are saying is perfectly valid.

Do you believe the US Capitol must be protected, and anyone who busts through Capitol police barriers injuring officers along the way must be held accountable?

Do you think it’s ok for Congress to have to evacuate the building in the middle of certifying an election to get away from a mob of trespassers?

Everyone reading this thread knows what your answers would be of the roles were reversed. The question is, do you?

Yes, and it ound in FAVOR of the people who were refusing service. How is that being used AGAINST those people? Also, the judiciary branch didn't bring the case on its own. Civil cases are initiated by private citizens, not by the government.

I don't need to address anything. I haven't made any claims, you have.
So let's go to the tape. You said....

To be quite clear,  the description of "I see people solemly singing the national anthem, taking selfies with capitol officers, and having doors held open for elderly ladies." does not match up with "protesters were chanting “let’s hang with Mike Pence”. You can dismiss anything you like, but until you actually address this discrepancy instead of conjuring up an excuse, you are a dishonest partisan hack.
You are claiming that there is a discrepancy, right? You say people were chanting, "“let’s hang with Mike Pence”. I'm saying people were friendly and festive. I have video to support my claim. My claim refutes your implication that the crowd was violent and rebellious.

What you want is for me to see ONLY your claim, and then interpret it the loony democratic way. They were angry at Pence yes, but that doesn't mean any of your claim is true.

They still took no weapons. No officer was killed. The building was not torched, and Pelosi did refuse to send in the capitol police. Sorry dusty, the partisan hack is you.

And when confronted with a contradiction to that claim, you deflect.
What was the contradiction? Which of my claims did you contradict?

When you get called out for deflecting, you deflect again. 
No matter how long it takes you, you will have to accept that your perception is not reality.

Hence dishonest partisan hack
The FBI found that there was no insurrection or rebellion. No one has been charged with insurrection or rebellion. The facts on the ground call you a partisan hack.

I reject your hypocrasy.

I will never allow a thief to charge me with theft. The left loves doing that. I don't want to hear your hypocritical views about Jan 6th while cities and federal buildings are still smoldering and business are still shut.

Why?
Because you were deceptively trying to use your "facts" to support a false narrative. I will not allow that. The only person who died was a Trump supporter illegally shot by a capitol officer.

You claim that conservatives dismiss this occurrence because the left doesn’t seem to care about Antifa/BLM. In other words, you’re justified in your hypocrisy as long as long as the other side does it too.
Those "other words" are yours. Please do not try to saddle me with them. If the multiple officers murdered during the Antifa/BLM riots didn't bother you, why should I listen to you about an officer hurting his finger?? Hypocrasy like that makes me sick.

You ignored my questions to you in my post, you get the same treatment here. Understand liberals, no one is here to be grilled by you as you ignore their questions.

Everyone reading this thread knows what your answers would be of the roles were reversed. The question is, do you?
You mean every liberal here reading this thread assumes he knows what my answers would be of the roles were reversed.

Not only do liberals assume, but they are ready to convict the conservative on just their assumption. Ethan doesn't allow that.

Now obviously, this is just an expression of free speech and an element of a protest. However, one is hardly "friendly and festive" if one is chanting for the lynching of someone, which is a contradiction.

Also the fact that video footage of protesters chanting "hang mike pence" being readily available from the first page of a google search also indicates that you are, again, a dishonest partisan hack.

You know nothing about either case. They were not refusing service, they were refusing to be at a gay wedding and make gay marriage depictions.

So the photographer refused to be at a gay wedding, and the baker refused to make something depicting gay marriage (not sure what that would entail but okay)....so how is that different than "refusing service"? And again, it wasn't the UNITED STATES Vs these merchants. It was private citizens.

My views are irrelevant to the validity of yours. Again, you stated and are still defending the view you hold that January 6th was about Trump protesters taking selfies with police officers as they held the doors to the US Capitol open for them. I’m just trying to get you to explain why despite all of the other far more objectionable things that took place is you’re only answer “but the left…”

This is the exact same hypocrisy you alleged about the left, making your entire position incoherent. You’re  decrying the left for the same thing you are actively doing.

And not for nothing, but read your own statement again. First you start by telling me why you won’t share your views, then move on to telling me why you don’t want to hear mine. So what are you doing here?

Because you were deceptively trying to use your "facts" to support a false narrative. I will not allow that. The only person who died was a Trump supporter illegally shot by a capitol officer.
First, can you please recite one fact I provided that wasn’t true? If you can’t, can you please explain why you put the word “fact” in scare quotes?

Second, I never painted anything, I was very careful not to say anything that wasn’t empirically verifiable. The facts painted their own narrative, and the demonstration of that is the fact that you already had the narrative in your head to make this claim.

Setting aside officer Sicknick, who the blue lives matter crowd couldn’t care less about, the only person directly killed in the attacks was a Trump supporter. Another question for you that you won’t answer is; why do you disregard the context surrounding that incident? Again I ask, should Congress be protected from a mob of trespassers while they are in session? If that mob breaches protected space, what should be done about it? It never ceases to amaze me how Trump supporters hold up Ashli Babbit’s death as an argument while ignoring the reason she died in the first place. 

You ignored my questions to you in my post, you get the same treatment here. Understand liberals, no one is here to be grilled by you as you ignore their questions.
The questions I did not answer in your last post were ignored because they were all irrelevant to our conversation and based on a complete strawman. You asked me how January 6th was an insurrection, I never claimed it was. In fact I’ve never made that claim anywhere, ever. This is where the part of my post comes in where I talked about the fact that you are not trying to have a conversation. I really don’t know why you bother at all, or why I continue to waste my fingers.

Once again, you wrote an entire post about how you see Jan 6th as selfies and door holding. Are you ever going to defend that view, or are you just going to keep attacking your own concoction of what the political left is about? Because if that’s the case, then I’m literally talking to the wall.

On a positive note, I will say that this conversation should give you all that you need to answer your original question: why do we look at the same thing and see something entirely different?

The answer: because we’re not actually looking at the same thing. Every single time I’ve asked you about what the Trump mob did that day literally all you have to say is “the left”. You’ve even defended why you do that. So this is why you’re not seeing it, because your head is turned and you’ve managed to convince yourself that reality aligns with whatever side you chose to look at. And then from there, it appears you’ve projected that same attitude onto the other side, thereby justifying your own refusal to look. Well, what happened that day is there for you to see, just let me know when you are willing to turn your head.

Stop being a douche. I never denied the chant. What I denied was that Jan 6th was some sort of insurrection against America instigated by Trump.

Pretending to ignore my videos doesn't save you. They are still there, and they contradict the claim you and Double_R are trying to advance.

So you agree with the fact that the Taliban shouldn't exist on Twitter yet they still do? I would constitute there beliefs as hate speech, especially there actions?

Why haven't they banned yet Trump has been?

That's the point. You haven't denied the chant and yet your position is that the crowd was friendly and festive. 

There is a sliding scale between "Friendly and festive" and "Violent and rebellious" which the chant demonstrates. But your description paints a pretty and utterly fake narrative which does allow for anything other than friendly and festive.

So dishonest partisan hack? Absolutely apt description of you.

Please stop being a douche.

Here are my supporting facts.
1. The demonstrators taking selfies with Capitol police INSIDE the Capitol building.
2. Videos of capitol police holding doors open for demonstrators.
3. Videos of inside the capitol where people are snapping pics, walking casually around, and singing patriotic songs in the presence of clearly relaxed capitol police.
4. Not a single fatality of any officer of the law.
5. No one brought a weapon to a rebellious insurrection?
6. The head of the Senate and boss of the Capitol police declining to send more officers.
7. Not a single demonstrator has been charged with insurrection or rebellion.
8. An FBI report that there was no attempt at insurrection or overthrow of the US government.

Here is your supporting fact.
1. The demonstrators were chanting, "Hang Mike Pence!"

Democrats called the Antifa/BLM riots "mostly peaceful", but officers were killed,  flags were burned, and chants were, "Death to America!” and "Burn it all down!"

Your hypocrasy is sickening.

So your only point now is that the crowd chanted, "Hang Mike Pence"?

Or is it also that the chant meant the crowd was in rebellion to the government? If not, then thanks for playing.

The baker said he would make a cake just not one depicting a gay wedding, service was not refused. Its no different than asking a baker to make a cake shaped like a dick or some other depiction the baker finds inappropriate.. The photographer did not refuse service he declined because it involved a gay wedding, again same scenario. Both parties were sued using the judicial system to force them or pay heavy fines, which they did. Also they were publicly persecuted by the news media.. But what ever, you find no fault in forcing people using the gun barrel of govt (THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM)  to cow tow to what they believe patently immoral and perverted.

I denied that the chant made the crowd rebellious. I did this by showing you video of the crowd being friendly and festive. I had supporting facts that the crowd was not an insurrection, and that no one was arrested for rebellion or insurrection.

I gave you examples of crowds (Antifa/BLM) that were actually rebellious and actually violent with their chants. Your position is that the "Hang Mike Pence" means the crowd was rebellious. That is your interpretation. Spin. And it disagrees with all the other incidents that day.

There is nothing more I can say to you if actual videos do not make you admit the truth. Follow your MSM talking points. It's no wonder you could not answer a single question in my posts.
