protests

Only Republicans would encourage running over demonstrators by indemnifying and pitting RWNJs and their vehicles against peaceful crowds. Because who knew that the “unintentional” weaponizing of personal vehicles was possible when pretending you’re driving a Tesla into a crowd of demonstrators.  “Five states besides Florida introduced similar bills this year, granting some...

So this morning, after whining about Big Tech, which is doing a “horrible” thing to our country (any time our pr*sident says anyone is doing anything to “our country,” just substitute “Trump” and then it will make perfect sense), Trump was asked about his role in what happened last Wednesday at...

Because we’re still using stereotypes from the 1960s, the Nixonian 1968 campaign Trump now has hate riders and flags. And violence. Presently lots of disinformation on twitter with RWNJs spinning the event. One version of reporting is that a person with a Patriot Prayer hat sprayed someone with pepper spray...

Jesus Christ, this asshole. At yesterday’s coronavirus presser/super-spreader event in Bedminster, New Jersey, Donald Trump sarcastically referred to the WASPy weirdos in attendance as “peaceful protesters.” It was his way of excusing their flouting of social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines. Because he’s just that big of a prick. Huffington Post:...

Trump’s attempts to rationalize his future grievances resemble the excuses he’d created for an anticipated 2016 loss. He had hoped to grift for his quasi-empire from his opposition to a Clinton presidency when he gained it via the Electoral College. He’s repeating that tactic, only this time his adoption of the 1968...

In his presser, Trump blamed Portland violence on “professional anarchists” because of course they carry cards noting their memberships, rather than those awful amateur anarchists. There are so darn many of them, so many moms and vets. Too many pro-tips for Trump, because when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro....

I’ve spent most of the afternoon watching clips of the U.S. attorney general flouting standards of fairness and the rule of law, so this was a real pick-me-up. It seems some detained Portland protesters are being told, as a condition of their release, that they can no longer attend protests...

William Barr’s opening statement has been released and apparently anarchists abound as the Mueller report signaled a “bogus Russiagate scandal”.

The use of federal protection squads in Portland and DC is expected to expand, even as there is no need for them except as actors in re-election campaign media. It’s more security theater, situated in cities rather than airports. It is pseudo martial law, transgressing on state and local laws, superspreading...

There is a spread that’s occurring as global travel increases and with the “opening-up” of economic activity. Trump’s attempt to take credit for low numbers is absurd on its face considering that between 36 -65,000 US deaths came from his inaction. Like GOP vote suppression there will be testing and...

We are at an interesting point, the necessity for socially distanced behavior and the imposition of De Facto martial law. Even as there is peaceful protest during the day time, there will be problematic police behavior in the evening.
