Shaggy_C: SpectroBoy: That's not the point.

The point is that these people are idiots, isn't it? I'm insinuating that if they were smart racists (an oxymoron) they would just wait around until the movement dies out on its own accord.


Interesting thought process there.

Do you think that the "movement" is the mural?  Your other comment about repainting every year would indicate so.

The movement is about establishing true equality through legal and regulatory means, where black people can work, live, shop and pursue life without meeting the hidden and not so hidden racism of this country.  The mural is not the movement, it will take more than Cracker Karen and her cuck partner to hide the intent and purpose behind BLM.

The real work is yet to be done, to Identify and dismantle the systemic racism of this country, and the resurgence of right wingers extremism under Trump and Goebbels wannabe Miller - and more importantly, the 38% of American voters who are just fine with this.

The mural is just a like MLK putting a post-it note in his diary.  BLM is a reckoning, not a mural.

You know who is really corrupt? Your party. Because Black Lives Matter don't matter at all to them and they've proven that is true multiple times since the murder of George Floyd, in addition to YOURparty running over peaceful protestors, voting from the rooftops, wanting to murder anyone who isn't white and Christian, in addition to your own personal corruption Ralph, in finding it ok for republican men to sexually assault young girls as long as they've found Jesus.

now please explain to us IN DETAILhow exactly Black Lives Matter is corrupt.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Governments using the branding of particular organizations is probably a bad choice.

Saying black lives matter as a concept is not the same as BLACK LIVES MATTER the brand.

For one thing, BLM the org seems to have received tens of millions in donations. It refuses to say where the money is going though.

For another, it's not clear the political goals of the BLM org. Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists and an array of anarcho-communists and other extreme leftists are acting behind shield of the movement. The govt flying flags and painting streets with the branding of a political org is highly questionable. Since the name of the org is the wording of a statement that would be heinous to not agree with, it's a move that's almost scarily brilliant.


Just so you know, starting with "obviously" doesn't make your delusional warblegarble rant more believable.

Part of me (a small part of me) hopes these folks are part of the leftistQ-Anon trollspiracy.

Correction: not really "forever" as it wasn't that long ago that conservatives openly embraced racism as good. Now they just surreptitiously do so although Trump is trying to change that. Maybe that's what he means by Make America Great Again....
 
2020-07-05 9:20:03 AM  
1.  That's awful and it certainly helps get the point across that Black Lives Matter is a necessary movement and that not-being-racists isn't enough.  You have to be anti-racist.

2.  These two are in for a rude awakening if they think they will just get a fine. In most places is a misdemeanor up until a certain dollar value.  Here in Michigan, if the vandalism costs more than $1,000 to repair, it goes from a misdemeanor to a felony.  The very message and brazenness of their crime, and the current political environment certainly won't earn them leniency.

Aside from railing against people with morals, Ralphs biggest way to get off is defending underage rape as much as he possibly can

"All lives matter was quickly called out as a racist counter protest, so we focused on *how* they were saying it for a few years until that lost traction this last spring.  After a couple focus groups and klan meets, we've arrived at a solution!"

Man, it's going to be fun listening to you people flail while your entire worlds come crashing down around your ears when all you needed to do to avoid that personal crisis was accept that maybe black people aren't inherently inferior to you.  But that's just too damned hard.

Saying Apples are delicious doesn't mean Apples are better than Pears.

The statement that Black Lives Matter is a refutation of the counter-point that Black lives do not Matter. It says nothing whatsoever about White Lives, Old Lives, or Young Lives.

I want these people to have to walk door to door explaining that they were stupid and now they want to beg for forgiveness.


Exactly. "Black Lives Matter" doesn't mean -only- Black lives matter. It means Black lives matter too. All lives matter, but Black lives are in danger.

Despite all the white crybabies in our area, the street mural in Cleveland was defaced by a black Republican who scrawled pro life gibberish all over it.  Which wasn't surprising, since the mural was painted in a predominantly black neighborhood where racists snowflakes fear to trend.

"It's not clear the political goals"

Step 1:
Take your fingers out of your ears and stop singng "La la la, I can't hear you!"

Step 2:
Google everything about BLM you missed while your fingers were in your ears so you can learn about the specific reforms BLM leaders presented to local governments across the nation.

I like how the racists have found a way to attack the words black lives matter, but not the concept. Because they know they can't anymore.

The fines for this kind of shiat are usually something like the cost to replace the damaged property multiplied by two or three, they're... probably on the hook for over 10k$ for that shiat, closing down a street ain't cheap even if the crew doing the work is.

... hope it was worth it, I guess.  Dumbasses.


Yeah, but it's against Antifa, so Federal funding will be withheld if they prosecute, plus the mural will be replaced by a gold-leaf mural of Andrew Jackson and Billy Graham.

We all agree you're a moron.

It makes absolute sense for a protest movement in any country to be well versed in Marxist ideology and to understand the honest historical reality of Marx. Understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't make you a Stalinist commie bastard, but losing your shiat every time you hear the word "Marxist" most definitely makes you an idiot relic of a very shiatty America.

Patrisse Cullors : "We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we're trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories." Said in response to criticism by other black leaders that BLM didn't have an ideology.

Alicia Garza : See above

Opal Tometti : No info

I said obviously, since this comes up all the time with documentation. https://youtu.be/HgEUbS​zOTZ8

Ah, I see the problem now.

You use Marxism in its colloquial (re: pejorative) context whereas they use it in its ideological context.

Me : BLM was founded by self-professed Marxists

You : Says who?

Me : Here they are saying they're trained Marxists

You : But wharrgarbl

I clearly say the answer was given as a response to people saying they don't have an ideology. The ideology appears to be a Marxist one. Who doesn't agree?

We all agree you're a moron.

It makes absolute sense for a protest movement in any country to be well versed in Marxist ideology and to understand the honest historical reality of Marx. Understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't make you a Stalinist commie bastard, but losing your shiat every time you hear the word "Marxist" most definitely makes you an idiot relic of a very shiatty America.


Hell, understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't even make one a "Marxist".

Ive read Sun Tzu and agree with a lot of it. I guess that means I'm a Chinese General.

I'm surprised no cops showed up (assuming they were called).

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: PlaidJaguar: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Governments using the branding of particular organizations is probably a bad choice.

Saying black lives matter as a concept is not the same as BLACK LIVES MATTER the brand.

For one thing, BLM the org seems to have received tens of millions in donations. It refuses to say where the money is going though.

For another, it's not clear the political goals of the BLM org. Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists and an array of anarcho-communists and other extreme leftists are acting behind shield of the movement. The govt flying flags and painting streets with the branding of a political org is highly questionable. Since the name of the org is the wording of a statement that would be heinous to not agree with, it's a move that's almost scarily brilliant.

Just so you know, starting with "obviously" doesn't make your delusional warblegarble rant more believable.

See post above.


I saw it.

It doesn't make your delusional wharblegarbld rant anything else.

How are you getting by on unemployment?
