Breonna Taylor is one of the few recent people who were killed in a raid that was completely unjustified, AND that elicited this kind of "civil" response. Floyd was a bad scene, too, and should've been handled differently, but he had a hand or two in his own demise. There were others this year, such as Ahwatukee resident Ryan Whitaker, who were needlessly killed while doing nothing unlawful, but he was white, and seemingly not too many $#@!s were given.

    When you come out supporting guys who take tazers from cops and shoot them, or who come at cops wild and berserk with a knife, and then seek justice by looting the town barren, what the hell credibility do you think you'll have?

    What annoys me about the BLM movement is that they have ignored the many innocent victims of police brutality that we have been screaming about for years. That's blacks, whites, browns, hell even the family dog. Now they are lionizing armed, deranged, violent men simply for skin color. It is making a joke out of everything we have fought for in the liberty movement.

    "People" like that co-opt what others have done all the time and it's for personal gain every single time.

    Yes it is, and that was exactly what it was designed to do.

    ... and this.

    They have no use for innocent or sympathetic victims. It's when the cause is just - even if the reaction is not - that people are more willing to excuse or tolerate violent "protest" without resorting to forceful counter-reaction. It's only when the "victim" is neither innocent nor even sympathetic that they have the "purest" opportunity to test just how far they can push things and still get away with it.

    What I mean by that is that when the "victim" is an unsympathetically violent $#@! like Wallace, the willingness of people to excuse and tolerate violence (looting, rioting, beating. burning, etc.) is tested to the limit [1] - because that's when people are least willing to excuse or tolerate those things. And since it is being excused and tolerated anyway, even without just cause, the "protestors" confirm for themselves that pretty much anything goes, for any reason ...



    [1] And unfortunately, it's a test that civil society is presently losing - and losing badly ...

    Marianne Williamson said on Twitter that "Thou shall not loot" is not in the Bible. Seems she forgot that word is a synonym for steal. Even when she brings up the Bible, she fails.

    Not into rap, but he sucked.

    Another hero that does nothing but go around talking about how he shoots people.



    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe the message was all that terribly altruistic. I'm not all that surprised, after seeing this, that he went violently berserk a time or two.

    It's like Rosa Parks in reverse. In her case blacks who didn't give up their seat on the bus but had bad records were ignored in favor of Rosa Parks who was squeaky clean. I have a theory. The worse actor you are the more likely it is that you have thug friends willing to riot. Nobody is going to riot over a 7 year old black girl killed in a bad raid.
