When you can watch Blazing Saddles and really understanding for the Harvey Korman character (that's HEDLEY!) then you will know what it is like to be Trump.

The debate about when the Second American Civil War started is going to be really annoying. I bet most people will go with the 2016 election but I could see a lot of people going with 1868.

Hedley was way smarter than Trump.

How much you want to bet geofence warrants are going to be used to harass anyone near the protests?

This whole statue debacle would have been a great opportunity for a real president that had leadership qualities to start a dialogue and help educate angry people that not all statues are bad and that we should be looking closely at the Confederate statues. Benjamin Franklin and George Washington are probably okay to leave up as 10 shoes but Nathan Bedford Forrest should probably go.

Too bad we don't have anybody in the White House who's capable of the leadership that would be required.

Keep the statues, replace the text beneath them with "Participant"
 
2020-06-26 11:31:34 AM  
I might be okay with the statues staying up, as long as they get a "2nd Place" ribbon prominently affixed to them.

Protesters need to arm themselves and use those arms to defend themselves.

2A fetishists made cringy memes here on Fark about refusing the call to justify the 2A, so it's up to the protesters themselves.

There will be no Civil War 2. Debate over.

Having said that, there will be blood spilled. There will be more Heather Heyers. Biden is going to have show some resolve and say the words "right wing terrorism" and put a name to the threat that we will continue to face for some time.

But Civil War 2? Only in Cletus' most fevered of Walter Mitty fantasies.

Protesters in Iran get praised by Donnie


It's literally about being "adored." He knows the protestors out now will never adore him, but "supporting" the Iranian protestors might get a few people not in the US to go brain dead and praise his "support."

That cartoon is inaccurate.

Moscow Mitch would be helping to hold the Statue of Liberty down, and Blanche would be licking the soles of Trump's shoes.

Not sure who that third guy is. Bill Barr?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firdos_​S​quare_statue_destruction

In the afternoon of April 9, 2003, a group of Iraqi civilians began to attack the statue. One such futile attempt by sledgehammer-wielding weightlifter Kadhem Sharif particularly caught media attention.[1] Shortly after, an advance unit of the United States Marine Corps arrived at Firdos Square, secured the area and made contact with the foreign journalists who had been quartered in the Palestine Hotel at the square. After a couple of hours, the US Marines toppled the statue with a M88 armored recovery vehicle.[2]

Repubs, and especially Drumpf, live for this stuff.  H.W. Bush had that whole "Constitutional amendment to ban flag burning" thing when he ran against Clinton.  "Protect the statues!" should be D2S's new bumper sticker (although I'm sure he can get a few more miles out of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem that he himself can't seem to remember).

For anyone who is furious at all of this, BLM protests could use a lot more people on the streets. BLM isn't just about police violence, it is about income inequality that impacts all of us. This disparity includes the people that support Trump. As soon as they figure out he isn't going to help them, they might join.

This could get revolutionary.
 
2020-06-26 12:00:37 PM  
I saw Kevin McCarthy's smarmy ass on Fox News this morning (not by choice, waiting room situation) saying that if these people want these statues down, they should go through the process to ask for them to be removed.  But here's Trump making it clear that as far as he is concerned, they all stay up, even the ones of the most vicious and cruel racists.

This is why people protest.  You can't tell people to "use the system" and then say in the next breath that using the system will get you absolutely nothing that you want
 
2020-06-26 12:01:30 PM  
Since most of the statues are state and local Donnie use his 8 inch ego and 2 inch d*ck to make all the useless threats he wants.

In that case, he'd be helping Moscow Mitch holding her down.

Tearing down a statue, or looting, or throwing rocks at the police isn't "peaceably assembling" Subby, so it's not legal, but nice fuel to throw onto the fire! Give yourself a self hi-five for your brilliantly woke headline.

I think the crowds have gotten out of hand with the attacks on the statues and I don't think they are helping their cause.  Attacking statues,especially of Washington, Jefferson, Grant, etc... aren't going to address and solve the issues of police brutality, systemic racism, growing economic inequality or other issues.  It is just a diversion.  That being said, I don't think the 2003 Veterans' Memorial Preservation Act would protect statues of Confederates as the law protects commemorations of service in the US armed forces.

So if no one is tearing down statues, looting or throwing rocks, you are ok with peaceably assembling? I'm glad you think that. Can you please tell the Phoenix Police Department to also be ok with it?

Because joking about a global pandemic, et al is totally okay.

Like biden has the guts to make trump hang for all his bullshiat.

A traitor like him deserves to hang. He needs to be known in history as the biggest american traitor and all those who helped and protected him as co conspirators. He cannot get away with just shiatty president who got impeached but not removed or go to prison. History will not be kind to us if we let this slide with just a tap on the wrist.
