Thread: Not just police across US cities is doing it, US National Guard members also take the knee

    Exclamation Not just police across US cities is doing it, US National Guard members also take the knee

    Not just police members across US cities, other US military force branches' members have also started to take the knee in the aftermath of violent protests over an unjustified killing.
    Sanctity of life and arc of justice are important and all but where is this heading.. would US military members start taking the knee to calm protesters over any civilians of other races killed in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Saudi, Syria, Somalia next?
    If such slippery slope practices spread, taxpayers may have to pay for millions of knee pads as there were reportedly over 400,000 civilians killed just during botched Iraqi Freedom Operation (that allegedly was motivated by racism/anti-semitism, oil loot greed, revenge, NYT promoted lies, distorted zionism etc). Can't even imagine what kind of knee gestures by planners/promoters of such bloody operations would be deemed adequate to feel whole again.

    In Washington DC, some Capitol Police in charge of protecting Congress took a knee as protesters shouted slogans, similar to other scenes that have played out across the nation (left). While many view the gesture as an act of solidarity with peaceful protests, as police join in condemning Floyd's in-custody death, others have criticized cops who participate as bowing down before protesters. President Donald Trump waded into the debate on Wednesday morning for the first time, retweeting a message said New York City police were being forced to 'bend a knee to terrorists.' In Chicago, marchers passed through the Logan Square neighborhood past Mayor Lori Lightfoot's house urging residents to 'wake up' to their protest against racial injustice and police brutality (top right). In Los Angeles, protesters gathered in Hollywood on Wednesday to voice their discontent (bottom right).

    Ya' know.........Out here in the sticks life goes on as normal, a little too much rain, the garden is suffering, people wave to one another as they pass on the roads and folks hold doors for women and the elderly. Children and families gather at the swimming hole, BBQ grills are getting their warm weather work out...

    And that plastic box on the wall keeps spouting gloom-n-doom, this plastic box I'm typing on too....

    I'm going to make it a point to be extra kind to my friends-n-neighbors and tune out the problems caught inside the plastic box...

    All of you who have chosen to live or work in the concrete jungle enjoy yourselves and the life you've made for yourselves.

    Personally I'm fond of small town life where nature and limited 'social distancing' are permanent part of the life style. Guess we all can dream.
    That said, city life has its perks and moments of joy too.

    Politically speaking, current MAGA revolution may not have been even born if it were not for a fine leader who is product of biggest of all cities, NYC. This is not a knock on the sticks but some of the greatest political leaders of all times times were developed in cities.

    All the more reason to let 'em burn.

    The only thing worse than "government employees" are politicians, cities are full of both.

    Nothing there for me, nothing I care to support.

    I'm not convinced city people are worth the effort, let the oppressed and the oppressor eat one-another.

    The millions who should "stand together against tyranny" feed the tyrants and their sycophants.

    Now this is the stupidest thing ever. You can't be protesting and dancing at the same time. These people are not protesting, they are having a party - bunch of phonies. That said, I guess it beats rioting. Everyone is such a child now. The kneeling is $#@!in creepy though - that's cult $#@!!

    EM.
    That definitely beats rioting and other side effects that follow. Bit of good times on tax payers dime to disarm the crowd, no biggie.

    Off topic but curious, this view is about people in American cities only or of cities of foreign countries too?

    Such a view might not represent non-urban areas in general though as many folks from non-urban areas seem to think that liberating/helping people outside their areas is worth the effort. But your statement's context probably is very different.

    I could care less about foreigners..

    Those people of whom you speak were born "liberated", they're hoping for unaccountable and revered but no sane person will grant them that so they try to influence the gullible and insane....

    It's working too.

    Ok. And many won't bow before another man or worse dictators that use oppression and torture to rule.

    But politics can cause many kneels and bows as many White House occupants would tell us.

    Nope, only in the cities and then primarily the liberal cities.

    This is NOT a trend where normal people live.
