.@TuckerCarlson I'm not in Antifa. No reasonable person thinks I peddle hate. But you told your audience those things. & then I received a barrage of threats & hate. & I had to take major steps to protect my family. So I can imagine how you feel right now.
And if anyone wants to learn about Antifa here is an interview I did with historian Mark Bray on my old podcast w/ @harikondabolu, #PoliticallyReactive.

Lot of people on both sides are rushing to Tucker Carlson's defense like there are prizes involved. How about you have the same energy when he targets people, especially when those people don't have the privilege or the budgets to defend themselves.

⤴️🎥LRAD Sound Cannon use at NY #EricGarner rally
#LRAD weapons have become standard fare at protests with our increasingly-paramilitarized police. These devices can broadcast emergency messages at 120dB over 650m. They can also cause debilitating pain over ~300m.

⤴️#LRAD: Loudspeaker or weapon
— the LRAD500X takes advantage of flat panels of multiple small speakers to transmit a cone of sound that doesn't get quieter the further away you are like a normal loudspeaker/megaphone. It's 'chirp' mode delivers 165dB over 300m.

White people get told they aren’t welcome in a restaurant and it’s a national boycott. Imagine for a moment if our privilege allows you to, that you’re stopped in traffic for nothing, they arrest you, find a way to hit you, put you in jail, then kill you. #SandraBland
Or you’re a white person calling the cops for selling water on the corner causes this uproar, but imagine if you’re playing in a park with a toy gun, you’re a tiny 12 year old boy, cops come and they shoot you inside 2 seconds and you die. #TamirRice
I could go on for days. Imagine you are simply walking along the side walk after a “report” that you stole from a store and cops roll up and immediately find you so dangerous, you’ve got 40 seconds to live. #KajiemePowell

22 years old.
Father of 2.
Unarmed.
In his own backyard.

2 cops – neither of whom identifies himself as a police officer – fired 20 shots at him.

Police video shows fatal shooting of #StephonClark (warning: extremely disturbing)
sacbee.com/latest-news/ar…
"About 6 minutes after the shooting, after backup arrives, an officer can be heard telling another officer, “hey mute.”

Sound then cuts out as cops apparently turn off their microphones"

If this f*ckery surprises you, you're not following @greg_doucette.
