May Mitch McConnell spend an hour in the Total Perspective Vortex.
May everything Mitch McConnell eats or drinks have the taste, texture and aroma of human hair.
May Mitch McConnell live for the rest of his life in a slowly rotating drum that prevents him from ever remaining still.
May Mitch McConnell have front row seats to the Itano Circus.

Mitch McConnell is an amoral, craven coward, who hates democracy almost as much as people of colour. He would best be used as a yardstick for diagnosis of sociopaths.

Move to China with your criminal wife Mitch.  Militaristic society is much more suitable to you.

I hope he enjoys being barricaded in his mansion, then.

Your daily reminder that Senate Majority Leader is never mentioned in the Constitution, didn't exist until the 1920's, and really shouldn't have such enormous control over all three branches of government.

Tear gas is prohibited from being used on the battlefield, but it's just fine against American citizens peacefully protesting.

When Mitch is no longer in government, I hope the citizens of the town he chooses to settle in refuse to give him a moment's peace until he dies.

Out to eat? Yell in his face.

Out for a walk? Yell in his face.

Going to get the mail? Yell in his face.

He deserves so much worse, but I hope, at the very least, he is annoyed for every one of his waking minutes.

fusillade762: Tear gas is prohibited from being used on the battlefield, but it's just fine against American citizens peacefully protesting.


Right, the Geneva Convention bans the use of tear gas from war. Why is that not mandated for civilians?



It really goes back to the Chemical Weapons Convention. At the time when it was negotiated in the 1990s, there was a lot of pressure to ban chemical weapons and they were used by law enforcement. That obviously got pushback from many countries who said, "Well, we can't really give up this weapon because if we don't use tear gas we will have to resort to more lethal weapons." The compromise that was reached was to leave that option open for using tear gas or riot control agents in law enforcement and only in law enforcement.

Whups - The question beginning with "Right," is from the article too.

Apologies to fusillade762.

Throwing stuff at police is not peacefully protesting.
Refusing to leave an area after you have been instructed to leave multiple times is not peacefully protesting.
Committing crimes is not peacefully protesting.

The police advertise the intention to use tear gas, Putting gas masks on.  If you are too dumb to leave, that is your fault.

I say lock the doors of the senate and toss a couple of tear gas cannisters in there.
 
2020-06-03 1:04:44 AM  
If Mitch has no problem with these things, why doesn't he take a few rounds to the chest, then put him in a room with a handful of canisters going off? Then perhaps give him a taser shot to the groin?  And do this on the daily?  If it is perfectly fine for his constituency, it's perfectly fine for him, innit?

/ As I said in a thread the other night, I've had enough of this turtle-shiat.

So the entire Civil Rights movement was illegal, and deserved to have been put down with even more force than the pigs were already employing? Got it. Good to know your true colors.

It is not but it was not a factor in the order being given.
Refusing to leave an area after you have been instructed to leave multiple times is not peacefully protesting.It is.
Committing crimes is not peacefully protesting.It might not be (depending on the crimes) but it was not a factor in the order being given

Barr gave the order to use chemical and kinetic weapons against the protesters without ANY provocation.

He did not say 'You may use these weapons if there is violence against you or you see crimes in progress' he said 'Clear the protesters from the area so we can get our picture taken'

So you, you can fark off.

Hey mushroom-sucker, why do you approve of a peaceful crowd on Church grounds - including the clergy of the Church - being teargassed so the head of the government can make a speech to look tough?

Hold that fart until the elevator is nearing your floor, and let that fart rip. I'm talking dirt bike jumping over a canyon rip. Then smile smugly.

If he's on a higher floor, follow him. We all hard farts all the time, so you.can hold that one until the perfect moment
