The very idea of white people being held accountable and sent to prison inspires talk of ammo boxes and revolution.

They won't have my vote in 2022.

As we've noted before, the Beer Hall Putsch wasn't when the Nazi Party took over Germany.  It was a dress rehearsal. An unsuccessful insurrection attempt that's un/lightly punished is followed by a surrection attempt. We are so boned in 2024.

The media were really really trying to make it a thing.   And instead gave free advertising for a group that support an insurrection, and over throwing the government

The 4th estate has failed us

"The extremist contingent has already established itself inside the Republican party".

Long winded.
Wordy.

Just call it a "Kremlin foothold".

"If people aren't heard then they go to the ballot box ... that ballot box, if it's corrupt then we have to go to the next one, which is the jury box," Zink said. "Well, now, what we're finding out is ... when we're going to the jury box ... it's literally, you're guilty until proven Democrat ... so the last one, which we've only gone to once, is the ammo box."

Did he steal this from Elder? It's nearly word for word from his phony baloney election cheat page.

Nope. The problem started long before Putin even took power. The Republican party has been hopelessly corrupted for a long time, and has been on the path towards open fascism ever since they welcomed the Dixiecrats into their party.

But i've been told, on numerous cases right here on fark, that White Privlege is an absolute myth and people that complain about it are just lazy and hate freedom. Was i lied to, on the Internet of all places???

The "four boxes of freedom" is believed to have originated in the early nineteenth century.

I do agree, the 4th state failed us many years ago. Our elected officials failed us earlier than that. Hate rules America, hate is ingrained within the very fabric of American ideals. We're all in a bit of trouble, and dare I say it; every political season will be filled with fighting in the streets to be heard and to drown out the opposition. Elections will only fuel the divide.

Remember who owns Rolling Stone now.  This is not Jann Wenner / Hunter Thompson times.  Penskes bought it with what seems like the express purpose of normalizing right wing extremism under the guise of a nominally progressive rag.

This is what happens when traitors are forgiven and returned to the fold.  They don't grow, they don't learn - they wait, and pass their hate on to future generations.  Confederate/Nazi/Trump flags are basically interchangeable at this point in the US.  Confederates lost, and they ashes of losers got brought back into the fold.  Nazi's lost, and some were specifically brought to the US, and introduced to the fold, and now the Trump brand racists lost (thank fark) and are trying to flip the table like a pigeon playing chess.

You arrest black people, Hispanics, Asians, Indians, Native Americans, and they actually did it, once you get them in the car and start to the drive to jail, they calm down and reflect on what they did, 99 times out of a 100.  You arrest a white person, and 99 times out of a 100 you are going to spend the whole car ride hearing about how you farked up and they are gonna sue you.

I should clarify that I never transported anyone I knew was innocent, but not everyone I transported was my own arrest, and while I don't think any of them were innocent, there were a few I felt an alternative to arrest would have worked.

The flags are more interchangeable than you know. For some time now in Germany pro-nazi folks are flying the Confederate flag instead of Nazi imagery in order to bypass those specific laws. Different picture, same rotten well of evil and hatred.

Zink is a real charmer. His twitter

That was true on January 6th, too. That did not factor in to either event, at all.

Don't worry, they're doing their level best to ensure that the will of the voters won't matter a bit.

It was a win win for the media and the far right.  Now they get to run with the "right wing extremism isn't as big a deal as you make it" narrative before they stop reporting on most small scale "isolated" incidents of political violence by the right.

I'm fairly certain that they didn't actually get it from studying a detailed history of the United States.

Did they skip the soapbox first, or is the fourth one the forever box?
