The New York Times gets what it wants: riots [KT]

Atlanta

In previous weeks and months, we have been reviewing developments since the New York Times announced last August that it would be focusing its news coverage, as much as possible, on racism (with particular emphasis on Donald Trump, of course). Other media outlets joined in.

Some other news items have distracted the media since then. But they sure have a bonanza of race-related stories to cover now. I decided to go back and look at one of the essays which was submitted by black Americans for the "1776 Initiative", which is aimed at countering the pernicious effects of the NYT's "1619 Project". Might it have some relevance to today's news?

Shelby Steele

Mr. Steele's essay describes how he decided, after the disillusionment of the late 1960s, not to abandon America, after visiting Africa. It explains how both minorities and white elites gain power and a sense of historical place through promoting a continued emphasis on victimhood.

You might want to read the whole thing. What has changed and what hasn't since the late '60s?

When I traveled to Africa back in 1970, it was partly because I had been more and more seduced by this great looming idea of America's characterological evil. It was such a summary judgment, and, at the time, still new and audacious. It had not existed in the original civil rights movement of the 1950s and early 1960s. Martin Luther King Jr. had never charged America with an inherent and intractable evil. He had lived in good faith with America, believing in reform and the innate goodwill of the American character, even as he also lived under constant threat of assassination. Still, when his assassination actually came to pass--with almost macabre predictability--young blacks, like myself (and many whites as well), saw it as a final straw. The evil character of America would always prevail over decency.

I came of age--in my early twenties--precisely when this idea began to take hold. Suddenly it was everywhere among the young. . .

He gets into the development and purposes of identity politics:

The point is that these identities--driven by the need for "place," esteem, and power--keep the idea of American/ Western characterological evil alive as an axiomatic truth in the modern world, as much a given as the weather. In other words, this charge of evil against the white West is one of the largest and most influential ideas of our age--and this despite the dramatic retreat of America and the West from these evils. The scope and power of this idea--its enormous influence in the world--is not a measure of its truth or accuracy; it is a measure of the great neediness in the world for such an idea, for an idea that lets the formerly oppressed defend their esteem, on the one hand, and pursue power in the name of their past victimization, on the other. It is also an idea that gave a contrite white America (and the Western world) new and essentially repentant liberalism.

In this striking vision of the white Western world as characterologically evil, both the former dark-skinned victims of this evil and its former white perpetrators found a common idea out of which to negotiate a future. This vision restored esteem to the victims (simply by acknowledging that they were victims rather than inferiors) and gave them a means to power; likewise, it opened a road to redemption and power for the former white perpetrators. This notion of America's characterological evil became the basis of a new social contract in America.

Things did not look as good in the new revolutionary republics in Africa as Mr. Steele had expected.

He also visited with American radicals while there, and kept track of their lives afterward. They did not seem to lead happy lives. How many of today's rioters even have a Step 2 in mind?

What has changed since 1992?

In 1992, during the Los Angeles Riots, LA had a black mayor. Today, Atlanta has a black mayor who has reportedly been looked at as a running mate for Joe Biden:

"This is not a protest. This is chaos. A protest has purpose," Bottoms said. "You are not honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. You're not protesting anything running out with brown liquor in your hands, breaking windows in this city. T.I. and Killer Mike own half the West Side, so when you burn down this city, you are burning down our community."

The speech was part of a 9 p.m. press conference after a peaceful protest downtown became destructive. Hundreds of protestors gathered around 3:00 p.m. and peacefully marched against police brutality in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. But as the police corralled the protest outside CNN center, some began to vandalize the building and CNN statue and smash the windows of police cars parked outside. One police car was set on fire. . .

"Go home," she implored protesters. "I cannot protect you out in those streets."

Rappers T.I. and Killer Mike both gave speeches after the mayor's address. . .

During the 1992 riots, the California National Guard, United States Military and Federal Law Enforcement agencies intervened. A friend who worked for the LAPD (but who didn't get to the hot zone until most of the action was over) said that the National Guard was not entrusted with guns. They did back up the police while the police did things like this:

los ang 2.jpg

los ang 1.jpg

Would the police force in Atlanta be allowed to do things like that today?

Correction from the comments: Some units of the California National Guard were armed while on the street.

32 Posted this on the last thread, but it fits better here:

Breath of fresh air perspective from rapper Lil Wayne. We need a lot more influential voices with the good perspective like Lil Wayne speaking up and less of the voices of athletes who simply are pushing the racism and anti-cop narratives.

https://bit.ly/2BeCADj

"I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. ... And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge," Wayne said during an IG Live chat with Fat Joe.

Wayne continued: "We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we're doing."

Elsewhere, Weezy gave his explanation on why he doesn't always speak publicly on these issues.

"What else am I gonna do after that?" he told Fat Joe. "Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain't about to do all that, then I ain't about to do nothing. I'll pray for ya."

And when asked by Joe if he was asserting that the follow-through is "more important" than a shirt or a public awareness message, Wayne shared more thoughts.

"It's actually learning about it," he said. "What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we're screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we're protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there's a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don't know. ...
We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain't true."

I never got on the Nikki Haley bandwagon. Yes, she did a good job pushing President Trump's policies. That was her job. No reason to praise her for doing what she was expected to do.

I always am wary of female politicians, because the majority of them --- Democrat or Republican --- seem to default to abortion and socialism and nanny-state and emotion instead of reason and logic in governance.

And I was always skeptical of her after she caved on I think it was the Confederate Flag or statues (or both?) issue when she was Governor.

I am very glad we have seemingly good female Governors such as Kristi Noem (SD) and Kay Ivey (AL). But they seem the exception while the Whitmers (MI) seem the rule.

Whenever I see people griping, "the liberals are doing this," or "the liberals are doing that," I get nostalgic for the 90s.

We were ALL so innocent back then. When the worst we thought of Clinton was that he was face banging an intern, honking the bobs of a grieving widow, or dropping his drawers in front of a low level staffer, telling her to kiss it.

No one had heard of Juanita Broderick yet, or Epstein Island.

They arrested the cop. Has the mayor resigned yet? The police chief?

In the private sector if one of my employees did something like this I would be fired and probably sued.

guns."
That part about the National Guard and guns is false. I was there with the 670th MP Co and our Battalion of over 700 soldiers and we were armed with M16s, .45 pistols and shotguns. Other units of the 40th ID were there, also armed. Maybe by the time your friend got out on the street, the Guard folks were mostly stood down and were supporting in an admin role.

Great job last night at the White House by the U.S.
SecretService. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn't have felt more safe. They let the "protesters" scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard - didn't know what hit them. The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That's when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. "We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and good practice." As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you! On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor,
MurielBowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn't let the D.C. Police get involved. "Not their job." Nice!

150 134 I'm telling you, IMO Floyd died of a stress-induced heart attack. His autopsy showed hypertension, severe hardening of the arteries, and I'm sure dead heart tissue.

People have survived buried under earthquake rubble, trapped under vehicles, etc. where there whole body was under pressure, let alone three guys hoding down their legs, torso, and side of neck (where the airway ISN'T - ever see a person with a tracheostomy? It's not on the side of the neck) respectively.

The officers were negligent, not responding to the man's complaints (most likely caused by a stress-induced heart attack in progress), but they were not trying to kill him. There were just stupid.

Cory Gardner is a limp-wristed semi-Republican who is worth very little. The only thing he has done that is good is confirm judges and decide not to vote guilty on impeachment. He is otherwise useless and counterproductive.

But don't worry. He's a legacy Republican in CO. He will be replaced with a communist this year when CO votes for the former governor into the Senate.

The crowd in front of the White House was obviously a rent-a-mob put there by the DNC, be sure that there were multiple cameras focused on every possible angle, just waiting for *anything* they could use as a campaign ad this fall. That was not a "normal" protest at all.

so, the SS had the hard job of responding effectively, but in such a way that there were NO campaign ads handed out. They didn't have the freedom that the Baltimore cop did.

There is a commonly held belief among many women that they can hit men without consequence, whether it be a boyfriend, husband, acquaintance, bus driver or a cop, without repercussion. This isn't an irrational belief since "never hit a girl" has been drilled into men's psyches, and they know it. Then they're absolutely flabbergasted, shocked, outraged and tearful when a guy they're physically attacking lays them the fuck out.

Someone on the ONT made the point that you can deal with big riots in one of two ways:
- Numerical supremacy and *lots* of arrests to make the less-committed stand down
- A high body count so people are terrified and dispersed.

The longer we do neither, the longer this will go on, and the more likely the second outcome becomes.

The lieutenant was a black guy so it is just anarchy has nothing to do with race. This morbidly obese women pushed her partner then took a swing when she went for a second go he knocked her out cold. This infuriated her friends but they backed off after that. She said most were young whites in face covering.

We also need to see the video from AFTER the event started to the BEGINNING of when he was taken to the ground and pinned. Why was he pinned like that? Was it racial, or justified (at least for a short time, with monitoring, unlike here)?

Did it show evidence he was high on some drug such as cocaine/PCP etc that could have made him more susceptible to stress-induced death?

Racism didn't kill George Floyd. America didn't kill George Floyd. Donald Trump didn't kill George Floyd. A bad cop, hired by a bad chief, backed up by a bad mayor did.

They arrested the cop. Has the mayor resigned yet? The police chief?

In the private sector if one of my employees did something like this I would be fired and probably sued.

Been saying this for days now.

This is not a Racist incident, it was a problem caused by local government.

Cop had a history of problems, but was still on the job. That's no HIS fault, entirely, its also the Police Chiefs fault, and the Mayors faults.

who just happen to be Democrats, like those who run every other city who is having problems.

Almost like there is a consistent pattern there.

Because there is no justice, yes I agree with you. If a man hits a woman in domestic situation, even if she's unhinged and hits him with a cast iron pan or comes at him with a knife, he goes to jail. Beyond that, if it's someone you know (like your wife, for example), moderation may be called for. On the street, though, moderation isn't called for.

Add in to that the findings in Detroit where most arrested were from out of town and the rumors from MPLS airport that a lot of people were landing to get in on the action, and this looks a lot like an op, likely Antifa.

Antifa, BLM and their sister groups are a domestic terror network. If only there were some federal agency, some bureau, that was supposed to investigate and infiltrate major interstate criminal operations that could have been collecting intelligence and breaking up these people years ago.

Of course you are not - because you see yourself as an individual with value.

The Left sees only collectives, not individuals. That's why they don't give a damn that Floyd's family has denounced the violence. They don't care about him as an individual but only as a symbol and an excuse for violence.

Posted by: Donna&&&&&&&V at May 30, 2020 11:55 AM

We are seeing lately that it is not only the Left who sees things this way.

A lot of commentary in conservative circles lately discussing "the police" or "law enforcement" as a collective as well.

I think someone noted yesterday or recently that Minneapolis has 4 precincts with 800 police officers. Instead of denouncing the actions of the one police officer, people are calling the entire Minneapolis police force bad --- 800 officers.

And some people are even going full Colin Kaepernick and full Black Lives Matter and calling the entire nation's police force bad.

That is a ridiculous broad brush that we would not accept if the Left was doing it with Christians or Jews or Trump supporters or military members.

If you can no longer achieve numerical supremacy because you've been sitting on your ass for the better part of a week, there is one card left to play. If you are "adjusting your tactics" in any way that doesn't involve increasing the body count on the side of the rioters, you will fail. You had the opportunity to avoid this outcome, but failed. So now you have to do the thing you *really* don't want to in order to protect your citizens.

It's like a lot of other things, what training will do is give you "muscle memory," and with live action use of weapon, the person who is trained might not even "know" they can perform under pressure.

But military training has shown time and time and time again, they do. The vast majority of soldiers and sailors and marines and airmen, if they've been trained to fight, when it comes time to fight, they fight.

I've had a lot of time to think about this. And the conclusion I've drawn is, the only reason I've not killed anyone is because I've not encountered a situation during which I had to kill anyone.

Not because I couldn't or wouldn't. Because the situation never arose, but like turning on a light switch, the muscle memory is still there in my brain.

Alternate-world response to Americans fed up with mayors' and governors' lockdown orders and storming state capitol buildings armed, but in peaceful protest:

"you are certainly justified in anger over the senseless murder of [5,000 elderly Americans] by out-of-control [heartless politicians], and nobody is madder than me. Not just the murderer but the other [people in his Administration] need to be punished severely. So your actions are understandable and justified. Please don't riot though.

Instead, the response to that is:

"Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism. It cannot be tolerated,"

So armed men disrupting legislative proceedings is "domestic terrorism".

But rioting, looting, destruction of property and arson is said to be "protesting".

368 I've had a lot of time to think about this. And the conclusion I've drawn is, the only reason I've not killed anyone is because I've not encountered a situation during which I had to kill anyone.

Not because I couldn't or wouldn't. Because the situation never arose, but like turning on a light switch, the muscle memory is still there in my brain.

Ann and I are just heartbroken over the death of innocent George Frey and we pray for his family. And while we all work to see that justice is served and that his death doesn't go unpunished, we should also point out that the tone of our civil discourse comes from the top, and when we constantly judge people on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character, our public discourse becomes depraved and episodes like we witnessed in Minneapolis and Atlanta last night become more common.
We should strive to be better.

Personally though, I understand the former United States has been WOROL since at least March.

When Chief "Justice" Judas Roberts sided with the Communists agreeing that the former US is without a functioning Constitution or government in its denial of the Bill of Rights, in particular Freedom of Religion and Assembly, it can also be argued that since the Bill of Rights is null and void, then likewise Article III, Section 1 can be similarly discarded making his Opinion, just that, a worthless opinion.

It was at the hospital that she met her current husband, Derek Chauvin. The Minneapolis police officer spotted his future wife when he brought someone in for a health check before an arrest. After taking the suspect to jail, Derek Chauvin returned and asked her out.

"Under all that uniform, he's just a softie," Kellie Chauvin said. "He's such a gentleman. He still opens the door for me, still puts my coat on for me.

Both statements can be true with respect to the same party in question.

451 Friend from Fort Wayne, IN sent this to me this morning. "Spontaneous grass roots protests". Riiiiight...

So I had a former coworker who I had no idea was still on my friends list post this yesterday:

BRING A LEAF BLOWER FOR TEAR GAS

For those of you going to the protests:

Be safe.

For folks who are new to social justice actions:

1. Water makes pepper spray worse. Use milk or liquid antacid and water. Don't wear contacts.

2. If you get tear gassed, when you get home, put the contaminated clothes in a plastic bag for later decontamination and shower with cold water to avoid opening your pores.

3. Come with friends and don't get separated.

Avoid leaving the crowd and watch out for police snatch squads.

4. Beware undercovers, but beware snitch jacketing and collaborator 'peace police' even more.

5. The far right is very good at combing through pictures and doxxing people. Mask up.

6. Write any necessary phone numbers you may need directly on your skin in sharpie.

7. Have an offsite plan for emergencies if you have not been heard from by X time coordinated with someone offsite.

8. Make sure all mobile devices are charged!!

9. If you plan on going to jail, plan it: bail, lawyer, time off from work, witnesses i.e.: a cadre. Don't just go to jail without training.

10. Beware folks inciting violence. Most of them are police feds. Watch out for hook ups for the same reason. Get to know the crowd. They will set you up.

No, I think that is fair. Cops-on-citizen deaths are a problem. And as I said when the video broke, I didn't see what led up to the footage that was caught but the continued restraint after the suspect was not resisting was wrong and reckless. It can happen to anyone. But calling in this specific case to "spread the pain" is incredibly stupid, because the context is the riot and not the event.

This is a tightrope, and there's no easy answer. I do have some experience with this matter, and it is NO guarantee that if they guy says "all I did was keep her from hitting me," he's going to get to walk away.

Bottom line is, with so many other circumstances, if there's only you and her, and she has no marks on her body (meaning you DID NOT HARM HER), don't say anything. When the cops get there, keep your mouth shut.

Get a lawyer, make them take you to court and PROVE you did something to her, one way or another.

If you say "I just kept her from hitting me," sorry pal, we got a laundry list of charges here, and it's going to take you YEARS to get your life back on track.

This is the first I heard of the rioting at Lennox, which is uncomfortably close to me, unlike downtown. Not surprising as there has been increasing shootings, muggings, grab and dash the pasty few years. I discourage my wife from going there and now it will be a hard rule.

I think it is also a lot about keeping the Black vote on the Democrat plantation.

I did some Google-fu and Excel-fu earlier this week, looking up the demographic results from the last 4 Presidential elections.

President Trump actually did poorly in all demographics but one: Blacks.

GOP Black Vote:

2004: 1,464,936
2008: 673,124 (-54%)
2012: 989,425 (+47%)
2016: 1,236,848 (+25%)

Democrats cannot let that trend continue.

I was also pretty surprised to see that women outvote men in elections by 8 million votes per Presidential election.

But the GOP % of the women vote has gone consistently down:

2004: 48%
2008: 43%
2012: 44%
2016: 41%

Democrats need to to keep 2016 status quo, except flip 3 states --- WI, MI, PA --- and they win.

I think the lockdown message in states is clear: you vote #Orangemanbad out of the White House in November or we will continue to make your lives miserable. Either with executive orders or unleashing our domestic terrorist mobs (antifa, BLM, etc).

A rather different take:

Looters/rioters - this is essentially an excuse to party as they see it. Rioting, looting, and destroying things seen as great fun, and now they can get away with it.

people who live in texas: PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THE DALLAS OR SAN ANTONIO PROTESTS, THEY WERE ORGANIZED BY COPS ANS WHITE SUPREMACISTS. PLEASE STAY SAFE

He knew the cops would grab him if he did anything, so he just held up his arms to block her. When the cops came out, he showed them the knife cuts on his arms. They tried to arrest her but she took off running.

So, I guess the thing to do is if any white person, any at all, show up to participate in your riot,

then the thing to do is to beat the living shit outta them.

People were finally starting to sue the Government for taking their rights.

Suddenly Riots, and the same state govs that were taking rights, give them room to riot.

Its now expanded to other cities.

Same thing with gun control. Jill Leovy in her book "Ghettoside" reports that the LAPD was astonished to find a legally-owned gun was involved in a murder. That hadn't happened in three years. Yet leftists focus on legal gun owners, and ignore all the gang bangers with illegally-acquired weapons.

653 This is one of the problems with our disconnected culture (and cities in general.)

-Boston Tea Party- every asshole there (that is a fond 'asshole') knew every other guy there probably by sight. There was probably one guy who they asked, who the hell is that guy? 'He's Sam's friend.'

-this means that your targets are known with some care. Burn down that guy's place because he is a known loyalist, take out that Crown newspaper, etc.

-with this, no one can know everyone involved, so when a guy's business goes up, who knows who did it? Was it a guy who was pissed at the local PD, or a guy with a ear wig who some jackhole 1000 miles away told to burn out that business because it was in the right spot on a map he was looking at?

-the idea that this is white supremacists is laughable. On the other hand, a lot of the early eugenicists were what we would call supremacists. There is more than one path to the same point. Is Soros a racist and does not think much of minorities? I'd say that that is probably one of many of the faults in that geriatric old walking corpse.

661 There's this weird attitude among a lot of leftists, especially the young ones ( and especially among the ones who don't live anywhere near a hot spot) that after the riots everything will just easily get back to normal. People will build up their businesses again and everyone will simply go about their business.

It doesn't work that way.

Newark, NJ has never, to this day, recovered from the riots of 1967.

Folks have no memory of them and no knowledge of the before and after, the damage done and how it goes on generation after generation.

746 Like firing a shopping cart with one bad wheel.

The M16A1 was the deadliest 5.56 rifle ever issued. Twenty inch barrel, one in twelve twist, left the bullet so marginally stable that 55 grain M193 would tumble when it hit, and usually would more or less explode inside whoever it hit. They tightened up the twist rate on later 5.56 rifles so that the standard ammo would just punch through without tumbling.

That's when major insurance legislation was passed, the GP (general practitioner) evolved into Primary physician, and people who had Blue Cross, Travelers, or Prudential were pushed into
HMO's or PIP policies. (which sucked)

And the government assumed much more authority over a physician's practice.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:26 PM (TnwAJ)

821 The defense lawyers are going to need to know exactly what he died from.

then they can see if they can tie it to anything the police did or did not do.

Medical matters like this are fairly complicated.

The media and the mob just wants the guy lynched, I'm collateral damage to innocent people and businesses be damned.

Same with Nick Sandmann.

These are no longer our countrymen.

822 The main problem for me is not the technique but that the guy tapped out and the cop stayed on top of him. These techniques aren't lethal in and of themselves or they wouldn't be used in MMA .

823 814 you don't asphyxiate from somebody leaning on
the side of your neck. The airway is right up front, think of people who
have tracheotomies.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:22 PM (TnwAJ)
You have chokes which cut off air flow to the lungs, and you have strangles which cut off blood flow to the brain. It requires a lot of brute force or leverage to choke someone. You have to push that windpipe closed, but a strangle doesn't require nearly as much strength. A rear naked is a strangle, even though it looks like a choke. Your forearm and upper arm form a V with either side of the V pushing on each of the large veins/arteries in the neck, and it requires little effort. Watch someone try to pull off a clock choke and you'll see how hard they have to crank.

824 From watching the video it looks like he was strangled to death slowly. It looks like the Carotid was forced closed against the left shoulder, and of course the Jugular was forced closed by the officers knee.

827 824 autopsy report said not.

nobody actually knows how much pressure the officer was actually putting on his neck anyway. Very easy to modulate.

Too many people have jumped to conclusions.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:58 PM (MAsS4)

828 823 except that's not what the autopsy report said was cause of death.

Unless we're going to think the Russians issued it

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 04:06 PM (MAsS4)

829 Two other observations.

1. they deliberately put people on their stomachs when they have severe covid-19 to improve their lung function

2. Nobody knows how much pressure was being applied to the neck, but it likely wasn't very much, which is why the police officer allowed himself to be filmed.

I don't think you understand what it's like to have that much weight pressed down upon you. You should let me show you how a knee on stomach works. It's a very claustrophobic feeling and you just want to struggle irrationally, and if you are having trouble breathing that makes it 100X worse. It takes a while to learn how to deal with that. You can't breathe so you struggle which makes the cop apply more pressure, rinse and repeat. He might have had a weak heart and suffered a heart attack from that type of excitement and exertion, but that really doesn't change the situation.
The office was a lazy fuck who was bad at his job and didn't know how to property restrain a person. I can tie you up and control every part of your body and never restrict your airflow, unless I want to. I can even allow you to sit comfortably if you don't struggle. It can be done from the back either sitting or prone.
I've practiced with plenty of cops at my MMA gym and I would trust any of them to restrain me, because they know how it feels to be on the bottom. This cop had no clue, and it's obvious from the look on his face that he had no idea what he was doing. He had no idea he was killing the guy, because he's as calm as a cucumber.

831 We've been conceptualizing the media issue completely wrong. It's not a free speech issue primarily; it's a discrimination one. The fact that the news media is controlled by a single political faction is a national disgrace and de facto disenfranchisement.

We should force them to reform like we did the rural south. Revoke all press access to 80%+ liberal news orgs, fine them mercilessly until they change. It's the only way the nation climbs from the abyss.

Posted by: mjg235 at May 30, 2020 04:37 PM (ucLrH)

832 830 how much weight, exactly?

give me a figure in pounds per square inch during those eight minutes.

Maybe it was nearly nothing.

I can modulate my weight on my knee in that position.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 04:54 PM (MAsS4)

833 830 Assignment: go find and paste the autopsy report here.

I found it, but I don't spoon feed.

My mama did that when I was a babe.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 04:54 PM (MAsS4)

I suspect you've never been in a position like that either top or bottom, so you have no idea what you can or cannot do. That kind of thinking is what got that cop in the position he's currently in.

Posted by: DFCtomm at May 30, 2020 05:08 PM (50gG9)

835 834 I don't "think.". I know.

Why?

I experiment, scientifically.

I did an empirical observations and measurements with a stuffed animal and bathroom scale.

What measurements did you take?

837 Going through many of the associated twitter trends that show up for me, I'm noticing how many of the accounts that are pushing this riot are either Icon'd with anime characters, J-Pop band images and other similar things. I wouldn't be surprised if yet again we see that so much of the agitation online is once again coming from Russian or Chinese groups (like they've done many times before during similar events) It's clear lots of on the ground damage is coming from ANTIFA and the same black groups you see weekly videotaping their flash mobs of Apple Stores and Nike Stores.

Hopefully Trump fast tracks this 230 protection of Facebook and Twitter, so they can be held accountable for instigating these riots, while spending their time trying to erase tweets and accounts of Anti-Abortion activists and goofy right of center bloggers instead.

Posted by: Rbastid at May 30, 2020 07:45 PM (uTEdS)

838 Many of the Anti-police tweets, sending out pictures and names of Officers tend to be a picture of a K-Pop singer, with a Korean name followed by a 7. So much of this shit is being promulgated by organized groups that twitter needs to reign in or they need to be held to account (as opposed to their current way of actually promoting the tweets and trends)

Posted by: Rbastid at May 30, 2020 08:31 PM (uTEdS)

839 Well... with all these people in close contact with each other rioting,
looting, and protesting in the cities, one would expect a mass die off
due to Covid. If that doesn't happen, then the pandemic panic was all a
bunch of BS. Either way, the leftists lose.

840 What has changed?

Conservatives have been revealed as cuckolds too fearful of being called racist to stand up to African savages or to defend the very people that elected them. If you need a clue here, and you do since you're cowards, I mean White people.
