Condoms are pretty durable, seems like if you're committed enough to handle turds and shove them into things it would make more sense to just throw your logs at the police or at least use a cheapo water balloon instead.

The U.S. is a racist militia
U.S. cops are already racist and brutal, and any militia “infiltrators” would feel right at home.

It is common to see news stories reporting that white supremacists or right wing groups have infiltrated police departments. Such information should always be greeted with skepticism. Law enforcement in this country is very much right wing and inherently white supremacist. There is no infiltration necessary. Any police officers found to be members of the Ku Klux Klan or Proud Boys or any other configuration are outliers only in that they thought it necessary to make their affiliation official.

The connection between law enforcement and white supremacists operated quite openly in Kenosha, Wisconsin. After Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in that city, massive protests erupted. Several nights later, a white 17-year old named Kyle Rittenhouse traveled to Kenosha from nearby Illinois after a militia gathering was announced on Facebook. Armed with a rifle he shot two men to death and seriously injured a third.

Of course, law enforcement is a reflection of the very ethos of the country it represents. Facebook, the enforcer of official narratives masquerading as entertaining social media, allowed a group calling itself the Kenosha Guard to announce their presence in that city. Their invitation read, “Any patriots willing to take up arms and defend our city tonight from the evil thugs?” Their much-vaunted rules meant little, even as the event was flagged 455 times by Facebook users who pointed out that groups espousing violence are allegedly not allowed to appear on that platform. Mark Zuckerberg apologized after the double murder and blamed a contractor for “an operational mistake.” The contractor knew one very important thing, that right wing violence is meant to keep black people under control and is therefore nothing for them to be concerned about.

Facebook is well known for kicking black users off if any white person complains about their posts. If the Israeli government tells them to remove Palestinian users and sites from the platform, they are summarily disappeared. Facebook follows the dictates of the Atlantic Council, an arm of NATO, in determining what is and is not real news. But they disregarded their own rules and helped to announce a gathering of armed people in a volatile situation. It is easy for operational mistakes to occur if doing so upholds the belief that white makes right.

The police in Kenosha did likewise. They chatted amiably with Rittenhouse and told him, “We’re glad you’re here.” They even gave him a bottle of water. They never told him that he violated their department’s curfew and after he shot three people he walked by a police vehicle unmolested. Bystanders pointed him out as a shooter but the police rolled right past and proceeded to tell protesters who hadn’t killed anyone that they had to disperse.

News stories about the teen killer described him as “an aspiring police officer.” The irony must have been lost on them because he was already acting like the police who shot and severely wounded Jacob Blake. Despite being very seriously injured and paralyzed by the bullets, Blake was handcuffed to his hospital bed. They were not removed until his family and attorney reported this condition to the media.

White supremacist violence didn’t start in Kenosha with the arrival of the Kenosha Guard and Kyle Rittenhouse. It was already there, as Blake can attest. But it is everywhere, not just in the police departments where brutality cases suddenly make the news. The nation is white supremacist from top to bottom and police, politicians, and corporate media all uphold it.

Donald Trump predictably praised Rittenhouse and claimed he acted in self-defense. We are now told to dissuade protesters or scold looters because the tender sensibilities of people who don’t care about police murder could lead to a Trump victory. But we should not be surprised if Trump wins again. His 2016 election proved that more than 60 million people were quite comfortable with his presidency and his open support of racist tropes and policies.

Trump’s praise for killers and pundits who whine about law and order are quite representative of the country as a whole. Of course they don’t care about victims of police violence and they care very much about the police. That is also true for millions of people who would not join the Kenosha Guard or wear a MAGA hat. Police brutality exists because it is widely supported. There are two million people in prison for the same reason. The sad fact is that this country is one giant racist militia. The Trumps and Rittenhouses differ from others only in their willingness to be the foot soldiers. They are eager to be the public face and the most vulgar manifestations of a society rife with the sickness of racism.

Those fucking cops committed a felony when they lied about the postal deliveries and then another one when they knowingly executed a warrant obtained by perjury, and since any death that occurs during the commission of a felony is first degree murder, those cops should all be facing murder charges.

I don't even understand why they held a rigged grand jury trial for a cop who has been fired in the midst of this. They didn't even charge for the shots that went into the ceiling and into a black person's apartment, just the white person's.

Like they knew this was going to happen, so they boarded up the court house doors. Everyone involved must have known this was fucked and wouldn't help the second they started.

Man so racist he was carded multiple times because of his insatiable lust for black death: Millenials need to learn how to talk rationally. I'm an adult. I have a standing desk.

Exactly they can't cause they're 13 percent of population the non-Black euroasian majority rules the institutions, the businesses, media, the curriculum in schooling, the property in Black neighborhoods. An underclass is by definition powerless, so the solution for the movement is to be even more powerless while dependent on whites to solve racial issues and some how poverty and criminality of Black neighborhoods(yet would be receive backlash for do so, cause it'll be seen as destroying said "Black" culture and be seen as white saviors for doing so) and at the same time owned reparation money. There have been police abolishment in both Minneapolis and at one point Baltimore police backed off after Feddie Gray and the crime rate increased in both cases to the point now the communities want them back. This is the consequences of being in a euroasian society that hellbent on harming destroying Black people regardless of whether Police back off or not. And throwing money at social programs won't save the already broken communities.

Yea, we know the police were scum for decades now and contribute to desecration of Black america and petty criminals, gangs and I'm saying the abolishment of police wont solve the problem and only make crime more of a hindrance in Black communities making more reliance and dependency of euroasian funds.



That's stupid and dysgenic.

@Black Consequense ,

I've read a great deal of Marcus Garvey among many others, and I've experienced life, and I can say that I don't know what the solution is even in this sinful and imperfect world we're in now, on a social, economic, and political level. There might not be a entirely just social or economic or political solution for anyone or everyone.

What I do know is that a common experience can unite a people or it can fatally divide them. Dependence is a drug too, and there's little difference between racist Liberal Paternalistic schemes and reactionary racist hatred and oppression. Both are dehumanizing and rob people of their moral agency.

Well. If you really embraced Christianity you would see all of the roadmap you need. You are blinded by abortion and can't see that your man Trump is the most un-Christian person ever to hold the office. He has destroyed the poor, the sick and the weak.

So my friend. You can go sell your piety somewhere else. It does not square with your almost pathological clinging to Trump.

You must be totally blind, in the willful and culpable sense. I have not judged your Christianity, nor have a personally judged Trump like you have, nor anyone else personally. But you have judged me because;

1. I am Pro-Life. That to me means from conception to death, and therefore a Socialist. Does that get you perhaps?

2. I am not ''pro-trump''. Telling you people why you are losing to this man IS NOT an endorsement of him. It certainly isn't an endorsement of his stupid and arrogant enemies, either, so again that's where I might ruffle a few peacock's feathers.

Can you explain why you have come to the conclusion that abortion has anything in the world to do with socialism?

:roll:

You can sell that somewhere else. Absolutely nobody is buying it from you. And. You are of the wrong opinion that repealing Roe V. Wade, which would likely not happen if all of the justices were conservative, would stop a single abortion a year. What will stop them are the programs that make it easier to have children. Taking away health care, as Trump wishes (along with two of his SCOTUS appointees) will greatly increase the pressure for poor women to have abortions. And they already have them in alarming numbers.

So-called pro-life conservatives are mostly full of shit. If you want to see what pisses God off more, continue to support economic policies that tread on the poor.

Fake Christians piss me off and there are a shit ton of them.
