  1. Hey, I know I've replied to this comment before however there have been posters on pages 198, 197, maybe 196 (they're moving fast now) that appear to have no shame in calling for violence, or as the Congressman says, to hunt down Americans on American soil, and posters have agreed. While the joke is, "they are saying the quiet parts out loud now," those quiet things being said are becoming less and less funny as the days go by.
  2. 12 times a President called on the military domestically... 1957-58 = Desegregation of Little Rock schools 1962 = Integration of University of Mississippi 1963 = Integration of University of Alabama 1963 = Integration of Alabama schools 1965 = Selma, Montgomery civil right march 1967 = Detroit Riots 1968 = Chicago Riots (following MLK assassination) 1968 = Washington Riots (following MLK assassination) 1968 = Baltimore Riots (following MLK assassination) 1970 = New York City postal strike 1989 = Looting after hurricane Hugo 1992 = Rio
  3. This guy is ####### insane. No one can honestly back this. No one.
  4. I've been thinking about this comment and I can't conclude anything but the following: Obama ran on change and even if he had 51% of the people ready to change (whatever that means), it leaves 49% of the people that are/were okay with the status quo, or afraid of affect change will have for them. If Obama had 99% of the people ready to do what needed to be done, we wouldn't be here right now, imo. But, how much was Obama stymied? What was fought against? What was persuaded to not change? Let's look at a few "changes" that were fought tooth-and-nail to not change during Obama's years:
  5. Might want to be careful with your big words. Some might accuse you of not knowing what "authoritarian" looks like or the history of such a thing. The quicker we root out this kind of thinking... the better... but we've been fighting this fight for far too long. We fought a World War to get rid of this.
  6. Sounds a bit like Joffrey. "I WAS ON THE BATTLEFIELD FIGHTING! I BROUGHT VICTORY TO OUR PEOPLE!" And, he killed the last soldier in the battle, when he was on his knees, bloody, with no more ships or attackers alive. "VOTE FOR ME AS YOUR LEADER AGAIN... AND WE WILL DO BETTER!!!!!!!!!"
  7. "upmost"? And, he uses two spaces after a period. Plus, the message is not all that positive.
  8. Anything? It's been 45 minutes, so, I'm curious if you are going to back up your claim. If not, please say you won't. If so, please do.
  9. One reason why celebrities don't say things is due to The Dixie Chicks. Taylor Swift mentioned this fact in her documentary and Swift was slow to act in 2018... or, not slow, but hesitant to say anything political. With new revelations from the NFL exec about Kap, people subconsciously stay quiet, in an almost bribe, because their careers could go poof due to a tweet, song, phrase, commercial.
  10. "Smart-### tone"? I'm asking you to inform me about what you said. How is asking for information misconstrued here?
  11. Please inform me of what tyranny is then. I'm willing to learn, so please inform all of us. Continue with why society has an institution focusing on order as well. TIA
  12. I was the poster that posted the tweet initially. Some of my posts recently have been met with the laugh emoji, hence me writing that about laughter previously. I elaborated for the poster you asked because he had responded to one poster about the tweet I had posted.
  13. I can hear the laughter coming from some people on here about what I am going to post in reply so hopefully you, and others, take this to heart. Rather than quote my previous posts, that you may have seen or may not have, many of the posters that have sentiment of, "protests are fine but this is out of hand," or, "this isn't the right way to go about things," are lacking the knowledge or knowingly displaying ignorance at what and why things are occurring. Protests are good but when people are told "this" kind of protesting is not good, or "that" kind of protesting is not good, or "do it t
  14. If those four cops are arrested on Tuesday, last week, these last few days of protest don’t happen. Maybe a few protests occur but not like were seeing.
  15. I can agree with all parts of this statement if you delete the "left-wing" insinuation of it. Police and police unions predominately vote Republican. The Minneapolis Police union appear to be predominantly more Right Wing than Left Wing. Police all over the country appear to be more Right Wing than Left Wing. The profession as a whole, along with leadership, along with its history, along with its traditions, would appear to be much more aligned to Right Wing polices than Left Wing policies. Yet, you can honestly conclude, that the problem with the last week has been Left Wing bureaucracy?
  16. Great, you will vote for the people that will demilitarize the police so they behave accordingly? Or, vote accordingly so the police, who are bums, are held accountable for their actions? Thank you for your continued support.
  17. Care to defend the police actions across the country? Last I heard, many Republicans love what the police do. If you don't like what you see from the police, maybe you two will vote accordingly in November.
  18. The majority of these protests are looking more like the Selma to Montgomery March from the people's point of view. We're just inches away from the cops bringing out the K-9 units and fire hoses.
  19. Yeah, it's Vox, but each of those videos would put you in jail if you weren't a cop. Real tyranny right there.
  20. There is no defense of the police in all of this. Each passing day they are looking worse and worse. On this board, we had people call for more violence from the police, even death. As more videos come out, that is what police violence looks like. Shooting into innocent crowds. Pushing people around. Those are militant actions. Those are tyrannical actions. That is what Authoritarian looks, acts, and sounds like. I will wait patiently to see who will defend the police. Hopefully I wait a long time because I don't see any defense here.
