Harlee: leeksfromchichis: Harlee: leeksfromchichis: Vaccinate anyone who gets arrested.

Arrest anti-vaxxers en masse when incidents like this happen.

Release them without charges.

Release them after vaccinating them.

Yes, that's what I said.
Sadly, the police are way to friendly with the magats for that to actually happen.

my only objection is that I should be vaccinated by dart gun tomorrow before the license rolls out.

Y'know, to show it's safe. not because I just want to cut the line

At this point I don't really grasp what it is that you are trying to establish here.
Nothing you have said about this guy or his alleged motives has anything factual to support it, and you have offered nothing.
I can't help thinking that you are projecting your own sort or motivations onto him.
But it doesn't really matter - these people are what they are, and we are ALL going to have to deal with them at some point - retreating from the confrontation is a temporary solution at best.

wademh: hardinparamedic: If you draw a Venn diagram of anti-vaxxers, Christian nationalists and white supremacists, you get one big overlapping violent circle

Not exactly true. There's a cohort of crystal-power, Gaia goddess believer types who are convinced that natural healing, an alkali diet and vitamin D will protect everyone, and that the vaccines are full of heavy metals and other poisons.  The whole pandemic is because we have lost our way and there's too much negative energy.
They have a strong need to believe that they work from an inspired revelation. Somehow, it helps them cope to believe that.


I will confirm the existence of far LEFT anti vaxxers I do happen to know a couple.
EXTREMELY nice people just don't make them get ANY vaccine.
It is more of a distrust rather than a hate thing for them.

All the crazies seem to be distracted with blocking a different form of doing what you want with your body.

Funny thing.  Anti vaxxers are now shouting "my body my choice" as if they understand what it means.

They don't really need to know what it means as long as it's true. Getting more people on the side of choice is a good thing.


Except these people will do a 180 turn if you mention abortion

Catsaregreen: So, the anti-vaxxers have coopted the Portland Antifa routine?!


Getting gassed and beaten by the police? Sadly no.
Beating people up and pepper spraying anyone who disagrees with them? That would be PB&Js , MAGATS, and other right-wing scam not in adjacent to yourself

indylaw: I'm reminded of the microbe (Cryptosporidium?) that farks up the brains of rats to be attracted to cat feces so that they'll be eaten by cats who will then spread it further.

It's probably bullshiat, but what if the anti-vax lunacy is a symptom of otherwise undiagnosed, "asymptomatic" COVID. After all, I'd wager most of these people were the same people that biatched about wearing masks or distancing from the beginning.


It's part of the pest elimination plan by those UAPs the government has stopped denying.
 
2021-07-30 12:30:51 PM  
Getting in the middle of a bunch of anti-mask anti-vax idiots and yelling at them, then getting physical, is "openly attacked."  Got it.

Maybe, I dunno, don't get in the middle of a protest and vehemently argue with the protesters?

As others have already said, the horseshoe is real. Lots of yoga people are warming up to Q.


When your lifestyle is based on science denial, devotion to a guru, and unshakeable faith that your inner spiritual sensibilities are The Truth it isn't much of a jump. Also, alt-health has been a huge right wing thing since the 19th century

I like this idea.

Only because this is America, it can't be forced. They have the option of vaccine and release without charges, or felony aggravated battery charges and six months in general population with a snitch having told everyone they're child molesters.

That did not look like a "random" attack by the mob on the bald guy.

Kinda looked like he took it upon himself to tell the idiots that they were idiots.

Guy with the camera walked into a melee and got clocked.

If you are smart enough to get your jabs, be smart enough not to walk into an angry crowd.

I've tried to be quite clear.

Helping with one hand is a half-arsed way to help.

But walking into a fight with your camera is a great way to get views.

This is exactly the behavior I'm talking about. Your mind would melt if you believed me when I told you that I've literally never watched Newsmax or OAN and I haven't watched Fox News in probably 10 years. But that sort of information won't fit into your black and white tribal categorization, so go off queen.

You do seem to be being quite clear, and to me the guy's actions certainly match those of someone looking for clicks far more than they match the actions of someone trying to help.

Personally, I would say the burden of proof would lie with the people claiming his main purpose was trying to help, rather than it being to make a video for clicks.

Sounds like these protests need a few "Stand Your Ground" advocates or someone in a large van/truck to show them what it's like on the other side of those laws they LOVED having put in place...

Oh....but they didn't want them used against them...Just to be used by them... Also, how odd that the riot police didn't immediately  show up start blasting....AH their white... never mind

I hope every last one of these shiat stains gets smeared across the pavement.

jso2897: Projection:
"I would never dash into a crowd to help a person being beaten, therefore anyone who would has phony, self-aggrandizing motives".

It's really hard for me to wrap my mind around the total paucity of self-esteem that makes reasoning like that possible.


I used to think this way when I was younger & fearful, until I was sexually assaulted in broad daylight while a bunch a onlookers did jack squat to help me (didn't help that I was living in a foreign country overseas...) Now, whenever I see crap like this go down, my first instinct isn't fearfulness - it's anger. I am much more likely to 'get into it' seeing as how I have few (if any) more farks to give at his age. While not the smartest move, sometimes the anger just gets the best of you.

But the past two years of my life have been filled with depression & anxiety:
-- I spent all that time going through cancer treatments (radiation+'mild' chemo, major surgery, 'hard' chemo, two more surgeries), which the knowledge that covid could've killed me at any point during treatment because I was so immunocompromised.
-- The only times I ever left my house for the past TWO YEARS were for various medical appointments.
-- I was not allowed any visitors during treatment/hospital stays; even Mr. SWAF was not permitted to see me.
-- Any & all cancer support groups (which would have been very helpful) were postponed or cancelled.
-- Even my later surgeries were postponed several months, due to hospital overcrowding, which extended my pain & put me at greater risk for developing complications.
-- All normal/regular preventative doctors' visits were also postponed several months, due to covid overwhelming the healthcare system.
-- The one time I had to be rushed to the ER (chemo complications), I waited 7-12hrs just to be seen, because covid infections overwhelmed the department.

My point (such as it is) is that anti-vaxxers have no earthly clue how their actions have snowballed into a fustercluck of epic proportions within an already stressed healthcare system. It's not just covid-infected people at risk - it's every single other patient whose care is being cancelled or delayed because of the covidiot backlog. Covidiots made my already-stressful diagnosis & treatment that much crappier. Fark them. Seriously, fark them.

So yeah, it's not the smartest thing to get into it with a antivaxxer/antimasker/covidiot...but I understand.

Yeah I'm glad I got out of LA. I'd be packing heat for the first time in my life and even though I'd probably shoot myself in the foot, once I recovered from that shot would be on. Got fully vaxxed in trump country central california back in April when cvs was basically begging people to make an appointment and get the shot. Seeing this makes me farking mad. Also, the mouthy biatch type and jesus bro are so farking tiresome. Somehow they are able to survive in LA.

Nope, that's bullshiat. You can argue it would be better to stay away from the idiots, but it's absofarkinglutely not this guy's fault that they attacked him. He did nothing to hurt them or anyone else. Those who assaulted him are 100% at fault.

All this mucking about with what is life is nonsense. We end life all the time. In a vast majority of cases there is no problem. I killed several mosquitoes just this morning. I doubt that any government agency is going to bother me about it. Nor should they.

The religious arguments are equally specious and non-Biblical.

I really wish these anti vax pricks would drop dead. All of them. Every last farking one. Drop. farking. Dead.

Wishing isn't enough. Now that we have a vaccine to protect us from their filthy disease, they will be coming for us. This was just a tiny skirmish - in the future, there will be more of them and they will have guns, and bombs.
American civilization faces a crisis with these people - their intention is to demolish our civilization - reduce it to stones and ashes. And if you, me, and the rest of us don't stop them - they will.

So is the Farq Anti-Gun Brigade *now* finally onboard with the 2nd Amendment right for the average citizen to have a gun and be able to use it in self defense and in defense of their country? Because if some MAGAT asshole tries to jump me then I am ventilating their worthless plague-rat asses in self defense, no questions asked. Mace isn't even an effective part of this equation.


I'm really starting to come around to your way of thinking here.
