It's New York City. I had the impression the rich were doing the looting all along.
 
2020-06-03 5:48:53 PM  
Probably work on Wall Street.

Looters in luxury cars is a dogwhistle, huh?

They must belong to the suburbanites engaging in opportunistic looting.

/pretty low rate of car ownership in NYC

You must be pretty unfamilier with the NY Post.

Same dudes that supposedly stole all those Rolex watches, that we later found out weren't stolen at all?  NY Post needs to get its act together.

Everything is a dog whistle if you're woke enough.

Wow, the direction of that video!  The steady camera, the panning of the shot as if it knew when the car was going to leave... there's no way that was staged!

Are you suggesting that they spent their welfare money on an Escalade?

All this damage and theft and, as far as I can tell, no Trump properties have been touched. Study it out.

It's not a dog whistle if EVERYBODY can hear it.

We really need to stop using that dumb phrase.

There are no dog whistles with this shiat anymore. It is very open and easy for anyone to hear.

Republican-like talking points detected.

That image/meme is total bullshiat. Zuckerberg is not the 3rd or 4th richest person in the world because he skimped on his fashion budget. He's that rich due to being an insidiously awful person and doing anything, to the point of promoting wanna-be dictators and selling out Americans to the Russians, for the purpose of profit.

Also, people are often poor because of the actions of the people like Zuckerberg, Trump, McConnel, etc. Remind me again how those stimulus checks to millionaires are getting priority over actual poor people.

Can I suggest that Trumpublicans can all go fark right the hell off.

Yeah, I guess this is the super-double-secret type of dog whistle that is in fact so far out of the hearing range for a normal human, one cannot even understand how it could be construed as racist.  It's possible Subby is a bat and able to hear bat whistles.

"Protesters - black and white - have stormed the streets in Minneapolis and other cities across the country in the nights since the death of George Floyd in police custody on Monday. Floyd, who was black, died after a white police officer pinned him to the ground with his knee for more than eight minutes during an arrest."

"In a video of the subsequent arrest, taken by one of the many members of the public that witnessed the violent event, Floyd, who was black, can be seen..."

He's not rich because he's insidiously awful, he's rich because everyone else is also. If people weren't awful, Facebook wouldn't be a thing.

How about we agree that Zuckerberg is heavily implicated in all of this awfulness. Let's call him an awfulness enabler.

No. People are poor due to the decisions of people like Zuckerberg, who exploit them with a "free"* social media platform.

• Free in the sense that Zuckerberg allows you to freely post content that he then sells it to the highest bidder to spy on and further exploit it's users.

Probably.

True story: know why there's bullteproof glass in front of the viewing balcony in the NY stock exchange? Because in 1968, the three leaders of the Yuppies went up there, and threw down $200 in small change, nickels, dimes, quarters, and TRADING STOPPED while the traders scrambled on the floor for loose change.

They were so embarrassed that they were putting up the barrier within days.

About as much as Hitler was responsible for the horrors that befell Germany in the 30s. He's the face and the leader, but Hitler and Naziism only happened because enough people wanted someone like Hitler in power.

Republican led deregulation in the 80s (esp ending the fairness doctrine) and their active efforts to create a maliciously ignant and perpetually aggrieved base set up the environment in which a peddler of trash like Murdoch would thrive.

Remember - that parasite has openly and forthrightly stated that if liberals would buy into the left equivalent of Faux News he'd do that instead. But we don't, flat out.

It's not a tautology.  It's not even true for all cases, much less true as a matter of logical necessity.  I don't even think the majority of rich people "live like their broke".
