And they put the hotdogs directly over freshly poured lighter fluid. Gross

Coal miner union organizers are Big Magic. When they show up, people listen, because they have survived murder attempts, and held the hands of cave-in victims, and there are always people without insurance dying from their livelihood, and those organizers are helping them until the bitter end. When a coal miner organizer comes out to help a cause, that's real big.


I'm personally against coal, oil and gas, but the sentiment of "burn all the things" really gets people's attention.

You can protest peacefully all you want, but until heads are splitting and you can feel the heat of the flames, no one cares.

The biggest problem is, is that this current movement has no leader, no unified voice, no list of demands beyond better police accountability.

We need a protesters union.
We need a unifying voice.
We need a list of demands that no rational person could vote against.

I do fear, that this unrest will dissolve without these things.

Until the famine, then things will get hairy again.

ox45tallboy: demonfaerie: I talked to my mom's friend that used to be in the Army Reserve. He said you are trained that you can disobey a direct order if you think it is not right. He said if you are with a commanding officer, and he tells you to go shoot a person in the head, you can disobey that order. He is said there was no excuse for the cops even rookies to be complicit in Floyd's murder. He is black, and he thinks a lot of people are riding the coattails of wanting change. He sees it as another trend. He believe people are genuine if they continue to work with organizations or groups that demands change, and not just go protest.  He also grew up in Milwaukee.

Except for we're talking about cops, not military people. They're not trained to judge orders, just obey them.


Cops want to be like the military than maybe they should have rules like the military.

Secret Service with long duffle bags and badges marked "United States Secret Service Special Operations Counter Sniper Team" heading into the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute building a block north of White House.

Well yeah. Their job us to make sure that anyone who uses this as cover against the President is stopped. This protest was expected to happen, they have to be prepared. Do you think the President goes anywhere without a counter-sniper team in place? Or that any large planned thing happens in the area without them being there?

Seriously, they are not worried about the protestors, looters or even any casual rioters.


This, since I only have 1 smart to apply. These aren't the unnamed, unmarked brownshirt army barr assembled, these are labeled secret service guys setting up for a fairly predictable eventuality.

Worth it. Fark the GOP. They weren't going to play nice regardless.

My favorite part of the whole thing (& I'm sure 'why' they did so) is by painting that BIG BLM on the street, Donny's going to see it every time he flies in/out of the WH

/and hopefully some of his pilots just happen to hover over it for a minute or two
//"Sorry sir, had a warning light up here.  Will just take a minute or so to check it out..."


Hopefully just another stressor that leads to his eventual stroke.

stuffy: Like so many stupid things. Racism is not an American exclusive.


America is different in the sense that we project our exceptionalism to the point of forcing it on other countries militarily and pretend we're better than other countries.  One of our biggest things is that we tout freedom, but if people are being oppressed is everyone actually free?  The other thing is we act like we're morally superior to everyone else because of all these things.

Sure if we want to drop the pretense we're some bastion of equality and greatness, I'm fine with that.  Other countries and places around the world don't try to hide it.  They don't try to assert their dominance on the world stage while pretending how great they are.

Basically, we're that perfect nuclear family, god fearing, bible thumping, everybody is amazingly happy, and everyone on the block aspires to be us.  We constantly talk down on others because the gays, and how because we pray we're better than everyone else.  But behind closed doors dad beats mom and on saturday nights can be found at the local park bathrooms sucking dick for fun.

Yes racism is around a lot of places.  That doesn't make it ok.  It also is a skeleton in our closet that greatly reduces our standing in the world because we act so superior and talk about how everyone else should be like us and look down on them for not being us while treating our own people like shiat.

We're no better than india.  It's cool.  That makes everything good.  We shouldn't worry about it.  We shouldn't change it.  We treat our own citizens like they do in India.  I'm glad that's out in the open, maybe we can stop pretending we're the greatest on the world stage now that we've admitted we're no better.

The slogan should be Black Lives Also Matter.

But that is longer to put on a sign.
And not as catchy.
And the acronym would be BLAM. That does not convey the right message.

Everyone who is not a racist knows that BLM really means Black Lives Also Matter.

It is, but also realize that most of these gun toting pussballs don't even have the courage to look a black man in the face when he carries a sign that says "My Life Matters."  They're weak and cowardly, no matter how many guns they display.

SPD was claiming they say violent acts in the crowd and too close. Then SPD started gassing and flashing protesters and retaking control over the area they've been at for the past few days on this multi stream.

Speaking of which, whoever this person is streaming from what looks like their home should probably flee sooner rather than later. Not a defensible position if the police decides to raid them. Keep the camera rolling in the house or office, but flee in person. Not a good idea to be near windows above ground floor if cops push into the house/office.

There'd be so many lawyers downright priapic if the police tried to shut down someone recording from their own home

Which means it'll happen sooner than later no doubt

Holy shiat

It's well known everywhere in Texas if you're black you don't let the sun set on you in Vidor

For real y'all don't know how big a deal that is


I've been there.  This is truth.

When my sister's little daughter was about four, they lived there, and the white daughter was playing with a little black neighbor girl about the same age.

My sister's MIL pulled my sister aside.  "Don't you let Susannah play with that little n****r!"

This is why I can't go to Texas.

I was told that we're supposed to believe literally anything that makes Trumpers look bad no matter how unlikely it actually is.

The Dem echo chamber is just as fuxked as the Rep's

There so much real to be mad about I don't know why people go chasing after that kind of crap


Except all the libs that are constantly being called an echo chamber on fark going "eh, if something comes of it cool, if not whatever."  Way to disprove your first statement.  It's literally quoting somebody talking about how the fark echo chamber is NOT echoing it, but libs echo chamber is just as bad???

I specified Left in this instance acknowledging that it hadn't gotten much steam here.

I'm referring more broadly to the tendency over the past 4 years of jumping on anything that looks bad for Trump, substantiated or not. And not necessarily on Fark
And I've been part of that more than once myself.

He said if you are with a commanding officer, and he tells you to go shoot a person in the head, you can disobey that order.

Which is why it's infuriating that we're told that you must obey a cop's orders no matter what.

It's insane that an army private in wartime has more rights than a civilian in peacetime.


1.  It's not that cut and dry.

2.  You don't have to follow unlawful orders of the police either.

3.  Both will probably get your ass beat or killed.  Any leader in the military who is willing to give an unlawful order probably has somewhat of a cult following in their platoon/company so if they feel good enough to give an unlawful order that people will follow it that by disobeying it there is a likelihood your life is in danger because now you're putting their career and others in danger.  We know what police do when you don't follow an order.
