Summer of 2020---The Civil Unrest Thread--Read OP Before Posting (in memory of George Floyd)


Recommended Posts

Regarding "I'm DOJ":

 

That's maybe a sign of resistance towards internal government agencies wanting to be the ones beating up peaceful protesters.  

 

Damn right investigate who they are, but I want more info on the possibility executive branch had to do that because of folks like Arlington PD backing out to help them in this.

Not to sound insensitive, but wouldn’t the Lincoln Memorial be close due to Covid anyhow?

 

Also, why guard it anyhow? It would be dumb af to deface the Lincoln Memorial. Like, seriously disrespectful and counter to your reason of protest.

Trump said they already vandalize one of the other memorials (Jefferson, I think).

 

Not to sound insensitive, but the DC memorials have to be off-limits in regards to defacing and destruction.  Lincoln died so we can have this conversation.

 

It's crazy talk to damage them, anyway, that's automatic federal charges because its federal land, I don't care how mad folks are, don't do it. 

 

My uncle is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.  I had no words for folks who went over there playing Pokemon Go, I can't promise I'll have anything nice to say if folks start kicking over tombstones.  There's a line even for folks that don't want to say out of line things, all things considered.

So I agree, but I also see the benefit in using social media in countries that are oppressed. So to me, it’s a double edged sword.

 

I’m not the most well versed on the subject but wasn’t the Arab Spring largely possible due to social media?

Social media can be a net positive if you're able to effectively moderate other wise you end up with genocides and election interference. Zuck don't seem like the type to want that responsibility at all. These ****boys are literally stopping efforts to make their platform less decisive.

Not everyone is out there for the same reasons.

renegade--let's not make this a conduit for reddit/face book too often and you keep using shots with hashtags etc. that violate rules so you're going to get penalized for that if it keeps happening---and i suggest you maybe take a break every so often

 

(fwiw, articles...links...actual discussion...vis's or others relevant tweets from known/important/relevant sources or public figures etc etc should be more the deal

 

in general,  c'mon some of you guys

 

 

self-awareness is not fatal
