    ” If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington. Also. ” Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth” J.FK. Also. ” Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves” Abraham Lincoln. (I served this country as a member of JSOC. My thoughts are my own but my concern is for my NATION.

    • @Alpha Delta Romeo that’s the point, you think the average American actually believes any of that identity politics crap? That’s all propaganda BS to try to divide and divert from the real issues.

      That’s like saying Americans believe Reaganomics is paying off, some do, the ones that profit off of it, the other 60 or so percent of us wants a better life than working our butts off, just to pay bills, wishing we could retire one day while hoping we don’t get sick or in an accident, all while enriching a system that won’t even pay a livable wage or provide affordable healthcare without force, BUT instead explicitly serves the wealthy and their interest and gives them our money during a self imposed crisis while we get to go hungry and/or homeless.

      Over 60% of the country will not be able to care for themselves in their elder years, and that was pre covid. Conservatives answer is personal responsibility and savings, but that doesn’t work when you only have $20 at the end of the week after paying only necessities, and if everyone gets better jobs then there is no one left to do the grunt work.

      Liberals want redistribution and handouts on the backs of the rich…..both are thieves, it’s the repubs that keep giving trillions of tax money to the corporations/billionaires for bailouts.

      We the people want to EARN a living wage, have opportunities, and be left the F alone….. not watch our bosses grow extremely weathly off our labor while we go without and have to budget for food with politicians trying to push us into the ideological ways they want us to be, micro managing everything without actually accomplishing anything. We the people hate all of the political BS and rhetoric that goes around to keep everyone arguing and keeps anything from being done unless it’s for ideology, screw ideology.

      Dem and Repub doesn’t matter, it comes down to life never getting better for around half the country and in some place/demographics, it’s getting much worse. Floyd was the straw that broke the camel’s back, the obvious case of overt injustice and inequality we were all waiting for that is serving as the rallying call for a real, no partisan political BS, revolution.

      If our leaders, all of them – any of them, do not pull their heads out of their butts and figure out what’s actually wrong, this country will burn. If they try to stop it by force it will become a war. Some one with the ability to do something better start listening because literally everything that has been done so far is only making it worse.

      @The Verdant white people were protesting lockdowns because it was unnecessary. The demographic that had the highest death rate and was most venerable was elderly in NY, who had the government of NY Cuomo and deblasio who put c 19 infected patients in nursing homes with the most susceptible members of our society and the outcomes were fatal . That’s why white people along with non whites were protesting a government run by people who were causing death and trying to implore others to now heed their incompetent advice . And then started using the virus as a political weapon.
      I grew up in poor sections on Miami and west palm beach. I now live in another city next to a housing authority. And ots always the nice cars pulling up and people with fresh new clothes looking to get a hand out so every dollar they get is disposable income.
      And if you look at the white people holding fire arms at the protests for Coronavirus. You tell me the destruction by beatings or looting that they caused.
      Its not all economical , because if it was I should run around destroying everything in my path. But u have better behavioral patterns and cultural embraces then that bootlicker.

      @Jason Thompson and how.many people were doing great before Coronavirus hit ? The economy was booming and I personally was doing better then ever. I made less money through the unemployment checks. So if you are in a obsolete occupation in a out in the sticks community with no commerce , it’s time to move because the dream of waiting in a Soviet style food line for government cheese that smells like Moscow Bernie Sanders is never going to happen.

      @choronos each one of those cases are different. Mr floyd was murdered and I’m all for that bad cop being publicly executed. Aubrey was up to no good. He entered that house on more then one occasion and at night time as well . And ti say he was just jogging there is another false hood , he jogged 20 miles just to go into that house and turn Around and jog home again ? B.s .
      I don’t think it should have cost him his life but if he wasn’t there in the first place when items went missing previously he wouldn’t have been confronted.
      As for Trayvon and Zimmerman- two people with bad attitudes that tangled and one ended up dead .

    I think it’s wrong to blame it on Corona. The killing of George Floyd was only the last drop in an already overflowing barrel…

    • I agree it would have happened with or without corona. HOWEVER, because corona and the unemployment numbers that come with it, people have the TIME to make a stand.

      The Demotards overplayed their hand in locking things down way longer than anyone wanted or needed. We have riots and looting from poor, minorities and the disaffected in big deep-blue cities across the entire nation which are most affected by the lockdown. You Demotards put these people in a situation of desperation with no way to put food on the table, pay rent, or otherwise have any self-worth or purpose from earning a living, so that all they needed was an excuse—any excuse—to riot and loot. Mission accomplished Demotards, you got what you wanted and deserved.

      It’s really funny that all these incidents of racism, violence and deadly brutality from the police always happens in big deep-blue Democratic cities across the U.S. like L.A., N.Y.C., Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, D.C., Boston, S.F., Oakland, Seattle, St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, New Orleans, Miami, Minneapolis, etc. Apparently, the Demotards have proven they still are the “Party of Slavery and Lynchings.”

      5. End systematic racism.

    • @Jess sum to think about that’s horrible what happened to you and maybe it was because of racism I don’t know your story completely but I can tell you there are similar stories that have happened to white people, my neighbor is black his kid is the same age as mine, we both work at the same place so we have the same amount of money and his kid gets way more in scholarships just because of color also he’s a great kid as is mine. I’m no more privileged than he is, this is a result of making laws based on race. Racism goes both ways and if you disagree that’s fine but going out and burning down businesses of people that had nothing to do with this is moronic

      Far back as 2001 I saw a country I didn’t recognize. Back in early 1970s the Powell memorandum started the evil trajectory we have followed. The Robber barons hated resented the New Deal from the time it was implemented and after Johnson’s great society, they developed a strategy to bring back laissez faire capitalism. The decendents of the robber barons are in full effect, they brought us Reagan, Bush, Trump, and a society comparable to that of Charles Dickens England. Social Darwinism rules and greed is unbound and admired. It will kill us if we don’t stand against it. Pollution / fossil fuels, greed/ consumerism will end us all if we don’t push back the horrid fascism taking over this nation

      You destroy your trolling attempt when you are so obvious. *Most US cities are blue and Democratic.* But, who is on the police force is very much selected, similarly to how states gerrymander cities and draw districts DEEP into the RED rural areas, in an attempt to split the city population, and make sure Republitards are elected.
      To say “blue, Democratic city” in US is almost an oxymoron. And you are an ultra moron to use it in an argument.

      Kathy Burns an important thing to consider is that, murdered or not, excessively and forcefully acting against human beings on behalf of law-enforcement can be a very severe thing to endure, because we entrust law-enforcement with so much power on behalf of society, the suffering that humans endure can be more distressing… I mean, automatically, these officers are given all of your personal information, they know where you live, they are in the power position and it is very difficult for the average citizen to defend themselves against the bolstered power of the establishment.

It’s more then race and your news and your society love to play on race for ratings. They will cover a black anything before they cover white person commiting a disgusting act which is all the time. It’s true whites and others suffer from Police abuse but it’s COMMON KNOWLEDGE white people don’t give a damn about it. But you’ll focus on those races who won’t stand for bad treatment from public officals. Police immunity for horrible acts and your republican system is part of the problem. We saw this man in a hold not authorized by any law enforcement I know. Handcuffed so how was he resisting that much for such treatment. They were fired and should have been charged the same day. They let these men go home relax and take a vacation. If there was enough proof to fire them then it’s enough to prosecute them. But please focus on those few who take advantage of the outrage to not talk or change the system.

      White people don’t give a damn about police brutality?  Looks like you’re trying to put me the same box you’re accusing of whites putting blacks in; sounds pretty racist to me.  By your own standard when I see blacks looting I should assume all do, right.  I can tell you I read those cases where whites and blacks are killed; 99% of those deaths are because the person had a weapon LOOK IT UP!   WONT EVER HEAR THAT IN THE MEDIA!   Do I feel sympathy for someone who is about to harm or kill a police officer NO regardless of race.  You said I  focus on other races?  Yeah when the result of their destruction is anarchy and baseless, unless that’s what you’re wanting?  Nobody has argued in favor of what happened; well aware seen the video many times along with the one in Georgia as well.  The man that committed the crime was charged with 3rd degree murder and will go to jail.  Is that your complaint now, he didn’t get arrested the same day?  That now justifies the destruction and looting; BULLSHIT!  Let me ask you, did Floyd die while the cop had his knee on his neck or at a later time?  What was the autopsy report? Yeah that’s right you don’t know, but of course rush to judgment because you’re emotional about a tape you saw.  Let me guess 3rd degree murder isn’t enough is it?  Should be like 1st degree so he can get the death penalty, right?  Oh it should be a hate crime only because the COP is white!  What’s the races of the other cops since it matters so much!   Have you even read the statute on either?  Did you know in 2017 in the same place a white women (Justine Ruszczyk) was shot by a black cop who claimed it was self defense.  He (Mohamed Noor) was charged with 3rd degree murder and sentenced to 12 years.  Yeah, the NAACP was all about reform of the criminal justice system until this happened.  They actually advocated for his release and said the conviction was unjust because of course he was black.  If the cop gets 12 years are you going to be all upset then?  I mean it was good enough for the black cop since that race thing matters so much.  Oh wait he should get longer because he’s white and we think there systemic racism problem in America.  I mean all these black folks have talks with their children on what to do when a police officer approaches them; especially those white ones.  Once you began to realize that their is money to be made in race baiting and dividing people you then understand we have worthless politicians (Democrats) who watch their cities burn while stoking the flames of racism.  Last question…..How many former prosecutors (Democrats) have you heard today say when need criminal justice reform.  Why the hell didn’t they work on that during the Obama administration, or when they were working for the DA.   Don’t worry about that, just focus on Trump calling looters and people destroying cities thugs because that just racist.
