HedlessChickn: How is this not terrorism?


It is just the beginning... first they will just shout and yell... then they will break things and get rowdy...

Eventually it leads to open physical violence.

The rise of the Brownshirts has begun.

With a name like 'Proud Boys' do they really want to be hanging out at LGBT events?
 
2022-06-30 6:23:54 PM  

HedlessChickn: How is this not terrorism?


Because terrorism is defined by law enforcement who support the proud boys.

It is terrorism.

And its having the desired effects. People are taking the easier route of complying with loud rude noises rather than stand up for what's right. And these thugs know it and that's how they win.

The Reich sure is concerned about the "sexualization of kids"...

I take that to mean "how dare you teach them things so that when I tell Timmy this is our little secret, he can now explain to authorities what I did to him".

I'm sorry I didn't qualify it with a slashie indicating that it was a rhetorical question.

This is the 4th time the Proud Boys have disrupted story time in only about 6 weeks. This is happening in different locations around the country. Last time, they brought a gun. This time, they are demanding it be shut down. They are continuing to escalate & be more emboldened each time. They are not facing any consequences, and they are backed by the Nazis in our government. They will start getting violent. It is not a matter of if, it's a matter of when.

PLEASE. I AM BEGGING YOU. PLEASE. This is precisely what has happened as the Nazis came into power in Germany. Get out there. DO SOMETHING. Stand together against this.

This is not keyboard warrior bullsh*t. This is a GENUINE cry for HELP. They came for the women. They are now starting to come for the homosexuals.

I am  BEGGING you. HELP THE WOMEN IN YOUR COMMUNITY. HELP US.

STEP UP. DISOBEY. THIS IS THE PRECISE SITUATION WHY THE SECOND AMENDMENT EXISTS. Do a google search for "
Why does the second amendment exist". You will find the following among the results:
Abundant historical evidence indicates that the Second Amendment was meant to leave citizens with the ability to defend themselves against unlawful violence. Such threats might come from usurpers of governmental power, but they might also come from criminals whom the government is unwilling or unable to control.

Don't wait. Start NOW. Organize, work together and protect these the people that dare to defy this illegitimate court. Protect your community. I am not a lawyer, but in this case it does not matter. The People LITERALLY have no other recourse, since the highest court in the land, who is tasked with delivering fair and impartial rulings to reflect the will of the people, is itself illegitimate, and they are stripping ALL of us of ALL our rights and protections we are ALL entitled to. Look at this situation. Think critically about this situation.

The current makeup of the U.S, Supreme Court is illegitimate, as is their rulings. (I would argue that because of this illegitimacy, their ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade should be null and void). They were installed by a single political party (GOP/Republicans), led by a single senator (Mitch McConnell) from a single state (Kentucky) that kept him in office.


First They Came, Original Edition:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me

First They Came, 2022 Edition:

First they came for women's reproductive rights, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a woman.
Then they came for the homosexuals, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a homosexual.
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me

The cops will be there, they'll be in civilian attire hanging out with their like-minded buddies in the Proud Boys.

What's truly mind blowing is that these people are all about parental rights. That is, until the parents get to choose if their own kids go to Drag. Queen Story Hour. Then they suddenly know better than the parents.

Because it isn't. Jesus, people being assholes are now terrorists? Just gonna label everything "terrorism" nowadays? I guess that means Fark's days are numbered.

Seriously, diluting terms like "terrorist" to include pretty much anyone is abiut as effective as leaving the Terror Warning at "Orange" for 5 straight years, people stop caring. When everything is terrorism, then terrorism is pretty much just the norm...

I dunno, trying to intimidate the LGBTQ+ community seems to be a good example of "terrorizing" a group of people.

FU*KING STOP IT. This is not funny. THEY ARE FUC*KING COMING FOR US, LITERALLY., AND WE ARE NOT GETTING THE HELP AND SUPPORT WE NEED FROM YOU. The individuals doing the story time is literally facing these groups single-handed, with very little support.

Just 3 weeks ago, 31 members of Patriot front were arrested as they arrived at a gay pride event, and that was only because the sherriff's office received a tip about "an army of men loading into the back of a UHaul".

STOP SITTING ON THE SIDELINES. THIS is something anyone and everyone can do. It does not need to involve weapons or illegal acts. We simply need NUMBERS. We need people to show their support. I guarantee, the Proud Boys will not engage if they encounter a group equal to or larger than the size of theirs.

ter·ror·ism
/ˈterəˌrizəm/
noun
the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
"the fight against terrorism"

The definition is very broad, sorry if you think that waters I'd down but it is within the definition.

You mean, they thought they were Jewish. Religionism is one of the only team related sports, that if you do fundamentally, means you are strapping bombs on, stomping on rights, and pretending bullshiat is true.

No exceptions.

In threads regarding racism, I've said that the only thing that has curbed white supremacy is the barrel of a gun - figuratively or literally, and the same thing applies for anti-LGBT sentiments.

They are banking on liberal and marginalized communities being gunless and defenseless and that's how they thrive - on intimidation. The tools of self defense belong to you even more so than them. Ultimately, there is no government entity that is protecting you, and that is the essence of self defense - when the government cannot, will not, or are afraid to protect you.
