That might happen, especially in areas where the police are defunded.....it's scary how that works.

Civil disobedience, the time-honored process of civil protest is no longer part of our collective vocabulary, the idea of protest, a process that confronts unjust, unfair, and unequal justice no longer exist as a peaceful, and at times contentious dialogue between parties. The conversation is one sided, bias, vehement, and filled with confrontational accusations. Racism is the base charge, a standard refrain to silence opposition to the socialist left, the controlling overlord of the “Black lives Matter” movement.

The BLM movement foundational argument is constructed on emotion, not fact.

If a researcher examines the statistics of African American males killed by police, vs all others killed by police in the same time period, one will discover the following:
In 2019 police officers fatally shot 1,004 people, most of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. African Americans were about a quarter of those killed by cops last year (235), a ratio that has remained stable since 2015. That share of black victims is less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of how often officers encounter armed and violent suspects. In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population. WSJ

The only reason BLM has legs is the propogandist arm of the democratic party, mainstream media: CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, and all international news organization. BLM’s entire argument is built on a falsehood of African Americans as targets of police brutality, which equals = conservatives/RNC

If you have travelled abroad in the last ten years on commercial airlines, you have undoubtably been confronted by aggressive CNN anti-Americanism. Ted Turners and the traitor Fonda, proudly present America as the culprit for all the world’s problems. They actively work to undermine the constitutional authority and the international security that good governess affords American citizens.

That said, the climate of violent protest is increasing with each new venue (city/location), which clearly examples orchestration, command and control, execution of well-considered objectives. These escalations are exclusively conducted in democratically controlled cities.

When the progressive mob ventures outside that bubble and is meet with force, they withdraw immediately. Examples are numerous, with a few standout outs, such as Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. The WP played down the confrontation as an online myth, imo, if the good citizens of Coeur d’Alene had not presented themselves, a sever and very different outcome would have occurred. No different than the two lawyers in St. Louis, who confronted a “peaceful protest” that torn down the gate to their compound. Once confronted with arm force, the white protesters are ushered away by African Americans, exiting the grounds of the private compound.

The ushered withdraw signals they are a paid mob, not an ideological driven mob. They have bosses and targets. If the targets present force, they are not willing to die for cause. That consideration is worth noting and needs to be implemented on every occasion when these anarchists gather.

If the dialogue between parties is dead, only one venue offers resolution. No one in my mind wants that engagement. But should it come, extreme prejudice should not be limited to just those in the street, but to those in every academic social policy department in every university in America. It should be a complete cleansing, no different than the one stated by Ayers, who casually suggested that the reeducation of some 25 million would not be worth the effort, and therefore, would need to be eliminated.

No. It's based on a continuing thread of Marxist ideology that has been woven through our society since Woodrow Wislon. HUAC and Senator McCarthy were right. But they were shouted down by the ancestrial voices of those in the Deep State today. And, in the '70s and '80s, Deep Acadiemia began spreading it through the 'educated' adolescents. Marx or one of his disciples said, "Give us two generations..." Here we are.

The silence of opposition, should give these anarchists a moment to reflect on the 300 million + firearms in hands of American citizens. Their reset, will not be as smooth a transition as the nation experienced with the 2016 election, the 2020 may be the match. When, where, this evolves to the next explosive stage is a guess, but the question of here we are can only be answered by, are you ready?

Personally I'm less concerned with numbers and more concerned about the will (presence or absence) behind them.

Purely anecdotal, but I believe the "will" to use their privately owned firearms to defend themselves and others is there. The latest incident in St. Louis is one of the more public displays of "when it hits the fan", but there are others out there where ordinary civilians are using their God given Right to defend themselves. I hope we can get to a point of Constitutional reform (Article V Convention of States) to put this monster of revolution back in the box before it goes hot, but I am believing more and more each day that until there's blood in the streets, there will be no institutional change.

It goes deeper than that...

Until there's blood in the streets (where the politicians live) there will be no institutional change

Look at the CHAZ - peaceful protests until one single person spray painted "BLM, RACIST, ABOLISH" on the Mayors house...

Then the rules changed - they became domestic terrorists.
...the order was given - tear it down

Citizens literally raped and murdered - property destroyed - threats of violence - national monuments being destroyed - citizens cowering in their homes - terrified because the law abandoned them.
Raped - murdered - robbed
...and police wont respond because its just a peaceful protest

Then, three words in black spray paint ended up on the MAYORS house - and THAT was the straw that broke the camels back.


Blood in the streets is awesome. It's fun to watch. It's makes the nightly news interesting. It gives politicians a platform to run on.
...it keeps the peasant in line.

Hey, what is that noise? Are the neighborhood kids in my rose garden again?
Send in SWAT !!!

Exactly....One of these days some kook will spill blood where Politicians live, and it might be one of them. Sooner or later someone is going to settle a score, and it is not going to be pretty. I'm not sure if they realize that yet, but it could happen the way people are feeling today. Politicians are throwing fuel on the fire, and one day it's going to burn their house down. The line has changed, and someone is going to step over it.

These protests, coupled with the looting and violence have netted some results. This knee jerk "de-fund police" reaction is demonstrating that demonstrating can bring about change that would take years via ye olde ballot box.

While I absolutely disagree with the blm/antifa/whateverthefucks, their misguided actions are getting results. I am interested to see what will happen if/when they figure out that their enemy is not the store owners, not motorists trying to use public roads, but the very same politicians and city leadership that have a nice impassible wall between themselves and their activist... er... constituents.

Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The City of Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day for private security for three council members who have received threats following the police killing of George Floyd, FOX 9 has learned.

A city spokesperson said the private security details have cost taxpayers $63,000 over the past three weeks.

The three council members who have the security detail – Andrea Jenkins (Ward 8), and Phillipe Cunningham (Ward 4), and Alondra Cano (Ward 9)– have been outspoken proponents of defunding the Minneapolis Police Department.
Quote:
Minneapolis City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins told The Root in an Instagram Live interview what exactly she means when she and her fellow council members call for defunding the police.

“Defunding the police means, in my mind, creating a new public safety mechanism that doesn’t require people with a gun to be able to respond to every need that our community has,” she said. Jenkins, who is the first openly Black trans woman to win elected office in America, said that the work around creating a new safety model in Minneapolis requires political imagination—and that much of her work is showing residents and elected officials that a new reality is possible.

I love the quote that Terrell Starr - Senior Reporter for "The Root" - used in his piece when describing CouncilPerson Jenkins:

"the first openly black" trans woman to blah blah blah blah blah

A senior reporter with a commanding grip on the English language. "Openly Black" - that is just an adorable use of the language. I actually had to Google-Foo the original article to see for myself it that was actually how the article was worded. His description of the council person sounds more like a Chris Rock standup routine than a serious journalist interviewing an elected official.

Regardless, People need to read that article and really let it sink in.
Really - LET IT SINK IN.

What does it say about identity politics and the impact on "legislating"
-does it suggest that legislating should be colorblind or focus on being "openly" part of various protected groups?
-what does it say about an awareness of who has what responsibilities in the arena of public safety
-what does it say about selfless service to a community contrasted with personal ego

See how many time you have to read the article before it dawns on you that defunding the police means taking away their guns...
...I'm not extrapolating that from what she said because I am a biased partisan hack. I am not taking her out of context - she states that she wants a "public safety mechanism that doesn’t require people with a gun"

We have that now - its called an EMS system. Fire Fighters - Paramedics - Social Workers. They have NEVER carried guns and they specialize in responding to public safety issues that don't require firearms.
...and because of the dynamic - the first thing firefighters and paramedics require before getting to work is scene safety.

She complained that black men identifying as women don't get as much attention as black men that are killed by police.
Because identity matters.


"Openly" demonstrating that voters no longer care about legislation - as long as we are openly praising identity.
Results will come later



or they wont

Such purge occurred in Indonesia in the 70’s. The wounds never heal as demonstrated in Oppenheimer’s documentaries:The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence.

I hope and pray the US never reaches that point.
That’s why I am rooting for black conservatives figure who are countering the false narratives. Change that takes place from within is more powerful thaN that of the system. I’m telling everyone to watch the documentary Uncle Tom

The Act of Killing is brilliant in its horrifying reality of how humans can so easily dehumanise other humans and show less sympathy for them than they would insects.

I’ve introduceD many people to it, because we cannot allow it to happen again.

What I also see is an effort to kneecap the most respected institutions(military & law enforcement), by the least respected institution(elected politicians and traditional media).

Kneecapping the well respected is the easy wrong for the poorly respected who will never choose the hard right.
