The trial was rigged joke.
Is this the standard response now for whenever conservatives don't like a verdict? Even in winning, that MAGA woman running for governor in Arizona, when declaring victory, said that her side overcame the election fraud.
Basically Democrats want to destroy every institution if they can't always get their own way.
You're projecting. They weren't the ones behind the attempted coup.
How are they defenseless to refuse?
People lacking critical thinking skills cannot evaluate the arguments made to them. They decide who they trust, which seems to usually be histrionic and bombastic people like Jones trying to manipulate and exploit them, and then believe whatever they hear uncritically, because they know of no other way to process information.
Or did you think that they sometimes say, "I wonder if that's the truth?" or "Is that a moral position to take?" I can assure you that that would be extremely rare. Do you ever listen to these people? I do. Not smart, and not nice.
"intellectual and moral weakness"
By the way you would think they could find something more damning if Alex Jones was as evil as they claim he is.
They did. The verdict wasn't for the perjury. It was for the malicious and destructive slander. Besides the perjury charges, Jones has two more Sandy Hook defendant to face, as well as the DOJ and January 6th select committee.
You act like abortion was illegalized.
They did their best. Nobody believes that the Court wants the states to make these decisions. They would take that right away as well. They want abortion criminalized in all fifty states. You didn't believe them, did you? Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Comey are all perjurers as well. You shouldn't believe people who lie to accomplish their agenda.
Parents should decide what their kids learn in school.
Nope. Parents aren't the consumer of public education. The public is, and is represented by school boards that decide the curricula according to societal needs. It doesn't matter how parents feel about sex education. What matters is how the community feels about it being taught. Parent who don't approve have no say over their children's curriculum except to find a private school they like.
You don't care about truth, honesty, integrity, fairness or the rule of law.
I'm not a Republican. I'm a liberal humanist. Those are core values of humanism, but are not part of the Republican experience apart from a few outliers like Kinzinger and Cheney.
