He'll just tweet about giving them medals, and then not do anything.  Easier, quicker, and has the same impact.

I don't think racists really need a special day to hate.  It's just who they are.

Individual data sets are by their nature anecdotal.  Just because 9 out 10 examples caught on film end up being some alt-reich jerkoff or jerkoffs doesn't prove anything.  For all we know the alt-right are just some kind of anti-Bigfoot and can't help being caught on camera in crisp detail at every opportunity.  And we know what they say about guys with little feet.

A little context--stores not far from the area had been broken into and looted the day before--by both whites and Blacks.

Fishtown isn't a suburb.  It's near the center of the city, in fact.

Don't worry, I've been assured that if we're just patient and wait until November to vote, everything will be fine. Sure, lots of people are going to be killed before then, but that's the price of democracy.

Circusdog320: Trump sees no indication of white supremacy Inciting violence during these riots.... he still doesn't


White supremacy is a red herring. There's scores of videos of blacks attacking whites along with scores of cities that have found that anarchists have traveled from out of state to incite violence. Congratulations of finally finding a video of whites attacking blacks, it was bound to be in there somewhere from all of this.

The issue is that there is an organized network that is sending people into cities to start shiat and we need to get to the bottom of it because they are co-opting the protest for their own ends.

I wonder how many of those guys that are out protecting the neighborhood now were out looting and causing chaos and distraction the night before?  Police chiefs from most of the cities involved in the protest have either said that the violence was started by right wing extremists or instead of saying right wing extremist they said "outside people".

Of course, the fact that they (and most of the rest of the press) do their best to make Trump seem like a normal President, and act like Republicans are a valid political party, is one of the reasons we're in this mess.

Pacification is not peace. Peace comes when conditions in a community allows a person to choose to act peacefully.

It doesn't take 6 months to "find a fight". It took that long for him to find someone who looked weak enough for him to assault. It took 6 months because he is a pussy.

Many people, on this site as well, will not acknowledge there are "agitators", and mock you for bringing it up. Ignorance is strength.
