#Riots2020 are a manifestation of the ascendant collectivist-equalitarian (anti-capitalist) woke religion, complete with its own metaphysics: blank-slate social constructivism (a form of social subjectivism), in which all human beings are genetically equal blank slates.

According to this quasi-religious left-collectivist ideology, any and all unequal outcomes for any self-identifiable group, from math proficiency to rates of criminality, can only be attributable to unequal treatment and oppression of members of that group by an unjust society.
A glaring example of such outcome disparity is the undeniably real gaps in arrest, conviction, and incarceration rates among different racial and ethnic groups. Woke religious metaphysics declares that in a just society no group disparities are possible without group oppression.

St. Louis and STL County have put out a curfew.

Restaurants and bars closing early.

People gathering in South County Mall and Arnold Hobby Lobby parking lots.
Arnold is South of STL county in Jefferson county, which is more of a sub/rural type of area.

It is not the city.
The people of Jefferson County will not allow rioters to invade their homes and destroy their towns, that much is certain.

Let's hope the gathering is peaceful.

What is immoral is believing it's just to violate the rights of the innocent in some perverse pursuit of "social justice". It is deeply saddening that this illiberalism has risen to such prominence in contemporary political discourse

Ex organizador de Ferguson Black Lives Matter, Chaziel Sunz expone a los demócratas, Antifa, BLM & More En 2017, Chaziel Sunz iluminó quién paga por Antifa, Black Lives Matter, cuál es el plan del Partido Demócrata usando los grupos.

"Alrededor del 2015 al 2016 comenzé a notar infiltrados ingresando al movimiento, haciendo páginas falsas del movimiento negro tratando de hacerles creer cosas con las que no eran familiares, empujándolos a la izquierda extrema"
"Algo que quiero decir es que si sos un "revolucionario" o algo así ni deberias estar creyendo en la politica, y para la gente que cree que estos movimientos "negros" o incluso los "blancos" son legítimos... te hace falta madurar mucho"

The police resemble its heavily armed military. Between 1998 and 2014 the value of military hardware given to U.S. police ballooned from $9.4 million to $796.8 million, with police departments equipped with machines appropriate only for a battlefield.…

A mensagem é clara:
querem nos matar e farão isso protegidos pelo Estado.

Vamos continuar pacíficos, fazendo notas de repúdio, vendo cada um dos ‘nossos’ ser abatido?

Quem não se posiciona também já escolheu seu lado.

#AntifasPelaDemocracia #riots2020
Sem mais 🔥🔥🔥 Depois da manifestação de cunho neonazista de apoiadores da Sara Winter na Praça dos Três Poderes ficou clara a mensagem: somos alvos e quem nos exterminar.

Mulheres, pobres, pretos, indígenas, LGBT’s, privados de liberdade e quaisquer ‘minorias’.
É com pesar que apoio este tipo de reação, principalmente num contexto pandêmico, mas não tenho estruturas para enterrar mais inocentes.

Eu me declaro pronto pra briga. 👊🏾

Innocent people, Mom and pop businesses are NOT the enemy!!! OUR enemy is law enforcers, judges, AG, Puppet governors and all the way up to the President!!! They have been at war against us for decades!!!
Going around destroying private businesses you are hurting your own community!!! It doesn't matter the color of our skin....we all have a common enemy & that is everyone behind that uniform and every dictator in office!!!
Know your enemy...LOOK UP 👉Totalitarian Party United States Code, Title 8 § 1101 (37) (a) (b).
We have to protect our communities and defend our countrymen against the oppressors!!

"Why don't you condemn the looting?"
I'm sat here a phone in one hand, PS4 controller in the other in a nice apartment, watching people trapped in poverty partly because the police are harassing, brutalising & killing them.
To claim moral superiority would be morally abhorrent.
My philosophy on civil unrest, non-violence, and rioting is never going to stray far from Martin Luther King.
#Riots2020 #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
There is a difference between condoning someone's actions and refusing to condemn them due to the empathy for the adversity they face.
There is a difference between having empathy for someone's course of action and thinking they're doing the best thing to improve the situation.

#USA #China #HongKong #riots2020 #GeorgeFloydProtests #HongKongProtests

In the dispute over the future of Hong Kong, Chinese state media used the riots in the USA to criticize Washington at the weekend. "The head of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi,
once described the violent protests in Hong Kong as a" beautiful sight "- now US politicians can enjoy this sight from their own windows," wrote the editor-in-chief of the Chinese state-run tabloid "Global." Times, "Hu Xijin. (Source…)
It is as if "the radical rioters had somehow sneaked into the US and created a mess like last year," wrote Hu, referring to the protesters in Hong Kong who have been fighting against the influence in the Chinese Special Administrative Region since June last year

Detroit 1943: 25,000 white workers rioted because of the thought of working next to three African Americans who had been promoted to their assembly lines. The rioting stopped only when President Roosevelt sent in federal troops. The fighting left 34 dead. #WhiteRiots

Every law enforcer need to resign! You don't have the man power to stop millions of people. I do know for a fact law enforcement in this never ratified 14th Amendment are law breakers...that includes this ENTIRE political system we empower through ignorance since 1868.
Cops DO NOT have NO constitutional duty to protect you & me according to the supreme Court. You all going to have to ask yourselves what is the purpose of the police? Under this 14th Amendment political system is about protecting Corporate interest.
Warren v. District of Columbia[1] (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981) is an oft-quoted[2] District of Columbia Court of Appeals case that held that the police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine.

Given tragic events in Minneapolis, let’s examine some of the underlying systems that have allowed police in the US to become so reviled and feared, and important differences that have been protective in Canada...
#riots2020 #GeorgeFloydProtests
I have a bit of a (minor) personal history... some years ago, I was late paying a fine for a minor traffic violation in suburban Chicago... I got slapped with an arrest warrant, had to spend $1000 and six months of wrangling (as a student) to beat it.
My real crime, I found out later, was driving in a white county with dark skin, and the system was designed, as a Justice department commission found in Ferguson, to victimize minorities, limit their movement, and serve as a revenue extraction machine…

Over 1.81 million cases and over 105,500 deaths.

Every person that will suffer, that will die, because of these protests, these riots, is on Trump and his accomplices.

Trump has used any diversion to distract from the Coronavirus pandemic and that is why he now pours oil into the fire.

His actions and inactions in the last weeks, and months, regarding the pandemic have ensured this outcome.

From the very beginning he has lied and denied.

Played with people's fears and uncertainties.

He has thrived in confusion, misinformation and disinformation.

He has ensured that trust was misplaced, lost or forgotten.

Instead of leading by example he has selfishly divided the country.

On April 5 in 1968, the day after MLK’s assasination looting and riots had become ubiquitous in DC. On this day, my grandfather, Ernest David McIntyre was on his way to get milk for his 1 year old daughter (my mom), and never made it home. He was 20 years old, here’s the story.
My grandfather was 20 years old, employed by the Naval Research Labatory as a custodian and also worked pt at Al’s Liquor Store on South Carolina Street in DC. The evening of April 5th, my grandfather left home to get milk, while on his way out his supervisor called from Al’s...
The supervisor asked for my grandfather to go check on the liquor store as news of the riots was spreading. He was told to ensure it was ok and locked properly, that’s what he did. However, as finished locking the door ( with a KEY in his hand) he was approached by an officer..

Protesting was once our only tool. Black people couldn’t vote.

We can now.

It’s time for long-game thinking. Mobilize the vote. Plan to run for local, state, & federal office yourself.

#riots2020 got you heard, but real change comes from a majority of seats at the power table.
Yes, the @GOP wages a vast voter suppression operation against us.

But if ALL mobilized, and our allies mobilized, and tens of millions of people don’t sit out the election, we could overpower voter suppression & address that problem from the inside too.…
Change is long and hard. I’m not talking one election, I’m talking decades here.

But we need to buckle in and prepare to reshape policymaking at every level. Police accountability reforms, stronger civil rights protections, etc.

We can’t do any of that from the outside.
