Without much effort one can see that the left has much more in common with the nazis than differences. Probably 50-1.

Murkanen: Is "We're okay with the message, we just hate every single personassociated with the message because they are scary and clearly up to no good" the new talking point now that the media started treating "We think all lives matter" like the bad faith, racist bullshiat it is?


Yes.

Yes it is.

The same people who said that Colin Kaepernick was out of line for his protest, and who made sure we knew every sordid detail of every dead black man and woman's life, and who memory-holed every story they couldn't discredit that way, and who tried to paint the latest protests as some sort of violent anarchist revolution powered by Soros... those people want us to trust them this time.  They'd be right out there in the streets if only _________.

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.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists

How do you know this? Do you even know who they are? Their names?

The org has three founders.

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


If the political party that runs nearly everything in this country were capable of ...

1) acknowledging racism has been so integral to this country and it's founding culture that it still exists in a profound way today

2) crafting and implementing policy which attempts to meaningfully address the wrongs created by 1

... this (allegedly) Marxist movement would have no fuel to get off the ground.

So push your leaders and fellow redhats to cut the legs out from under this group and its movement by doing the right things without them. See how that goes.

Everyone who has said "All lives matter" has done so in response to "Black lives matter" as a counter statement.

Their problem with "Black lives matter" has always been the "Black" part.

Pretty much anything ever written by this poster is the equivalent to 'I know you are, but what am I?' He has nothing of value to add, so he drops a meaningless ambiguous turd, then leaves the thread thinking himself quite clever. He most likely has erectile dysfunction and this is the only way he can feel potent.

Jim_Callahan: Um... the mural was commissioned by the city.

That's an actual crime these idiots just committed on camera, without masks.  The latter being amazingly stupid for two reasons.

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.


I'm sure their GoFundMes will cover it, but I'm cool with that money going from the pockets of assholes to the coffers of cash-strapped cities trying to protect their people from those same assholes. Has a kind of poetry to it.

NathanAllen: Let me guess, just like every other Republican, she doesn't see herself as racist. Since you know racists are bad people and nobody sees themselves as a bad person.

Traitors and racists and true believers, every Republican is shiat.


About 1% of racists will ever say they are racist.

About 10% of racists actually think they are themselves racist and that this is a good thing (or at least acceptable).

89% of racists don't think they are racists.

Me: look, you wouldn't say the n word at work, right?

Mother in law: depends on where you work

Me: *leaves room in disgust*

They think this behavior is acceptable because everyone around them agrees with it or at least silently tolerates it.

It seems somewhat inadequate to describe what is really going on in their heads. They don't feel privileged (even if they are).

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.


I've never heard anyone currently under he age of 50 use the term Marxist correctly or as anything other than as a stupid perjorative.

BLM gets a lot of money from Putin, so get rid of this shiat on American streets.
 
2020-07-05 12:29:44 PM  

RasIanI: If your 1st premise is that America has no racism to deal with, that systemic inequality is not baked into the system, well, you're pretty much beyond reasoning with. One has to assume that the system is working for you, personally, and that you have good, personal reasons for not upsetting the proverbial apple cart. That is, unfortunately, really, really racist.


That is the reason some white people hate the marches, the protests, the movement itself. They are comfortable the way things are, with them on top and everyone else fighting for the scraps... and I don't mean just economically. It's their system that their ancestors created and they maintain, own and run, and they don't want to see it changed. Part of that maintenance is reasoning that the racial equality in the system which keeps them on top does not exist, and ignoring it when it's placed in front of them.

The newest twist is when they bring up the protests as supposed vectors for the COIVID-19 virus, and try to compare that with the spoiled little assholes whining in the streets about not being able to get a haircut or hang out at a pool party. It's fairly transparent that they don't give a rolling red rat's rectum about the virus or the safety of the protesters... they just don't like the protests and are too cowardly to say so out loud.

Yes I am aware of that. Thanks for the useless glib response.

They lose their shiat afterwards because of the cognitive dissonance in their heads that cannot process them acting racist and also somehow not being racist in their own heads.

My issue is that something compels them to act out in the first place and it isn't solely racism. One could be racist on Breitbart without much effort and with few consequences.

These people are IN FEAR. They are behaving as though they are being PHYSICALLY ATTACKED when they are not. Their response is wholly disproportionate.
