Meanwhile, in Jefferson City...

Quote
In Jefferson City yesterday, the protesters decided to hold their die-in protest in front of the governor’s mansion. The video shows police called the assembly unlawful and ordered them out of the street. The protesters said they wanted to lie there for two minutes. They didn’t move. The police again gave them notice. Again they didn’t move. It wasn’t until the police started moving in toward them that protesters, moving in slow motion, decided to get up and amble slowly out of the street. They were blocking the street. They had blocked the street previously near the Capitol. And now they were trying to block the road in front of the governor’s mansion (which was stupid considering he wasn’t even there).

Then they whined when they got arrested. One of the screech owls in the group yelled “don’t touch me!” That might work in St. Louis. It didn’t work in Jefferson City.

Also, St Louis County's "first black prosecutor!" decided he should re-examine Michael Brown's death. After five months (I guess everybody needs a little project for lock-down), and no doubt many crumpled sheets of loose-leaf, he had to abandon any hope of finding a pretext for charging Wilson with a crime. I'm surprised there's been no mostly peaceful protest riot. But the anniversary of that event is coming up in about a week, so we'll see...

Wasn't there a recent article that said calling the police was White Privilege?

At the antifa gathering in Austin, Texas, militants refuse to disperse occupied streets. Officers move in on horses and forcibly move the people out of the road. They scream and shout in anger.

I mean, OK.  It's freedom of expression,  even if you are expressing that you're kind of a dick.  I'm not to sure what the bible has to do with police brutality, except maybe that Jesus was a POC that was killed by the police system?


I would poke them with a stick and say "Prove you aren't a coward, now do a Koran" though.  Get the terrorists fighting each other.

There is that.

I look at bible burning as I do flag burning or general book burning. You get to do it, but you're an ass, and I wouldn't mind punching you in the nose. But being a civilized Westerner, I probably won't punch you, and I certainly won't behead you for it.

I guess what bugs me most about this incident is that gathering to burn the bible is okie doke, but going to a church to read the bible will kill everyone with the virus. I'm getting sick of the politics surrounding what kind of gatherings and activities will kill people and which ones give you an immunity shield to the virus.

Same with this John Lewis funeral. They had every right to hold a big one for him, but at the same time, funerals for other people are denied or limited. There was a recent kerfuffle because some guy whose father had died had said this same thing, stating according to the gov, his dad wasn't important enough to rate 10+ people at the funeral. He got completely pounced on because his dad "wasn't John Lewis".

If people can get together to burn bibles, people can get together to read them.

If a politician gets to have a big funeral, then so does anyone else whose family wants one.

Reminds me of the fascist weirdo that decided to hassle a gun store owner, and then got all excited about the stack of give-away Bibles, and whether he/she could burn them, or take them outside and throw them at the storefront. (This was in 2017.)

Holy crap, that dude had the patience of a saint. I first thought effeminate male in skinny jeans, then female, then I guess at the end it was a male?

So Seattle protestors are suing because they can't afford to buy gas masks and stuff. I mean, don't they have grandmas?

Can we file a lawsuit over high gun and ammo prices needed to defend ourselves from these "peaceful" protesters?

He is literally a gun-grabber.

Also lucky that all he got was a punch in the face.

If I remember correctly, that incident occurred somewhere in Europe. Can you imagine the media outrage if it had happened in the US?
It's still an uplifting video, though.  :rofl:

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

The uniforms have "POLICE" patches on them, so if it is Europe, probably the U.K.

(and yes, the Left's outrage machine would be in overdrive howling about police brutality if it occurred here)
