    To be honest, due to the spread, this is worse than the Rodney King riots. They're not as intense yet, but unless something happens to mollify or suppress the protesters, the only solution to the current situation is to let it burn itself out. Chauvin getting a murder conviction would probably go a long way to bringing the peace, or charges brought against the other three officers involved, but this is a pattern thats replayed across the country more times than I can count. And honestly, this time it feels like even a conviction won't be enough, especially since Chauvin's unlikely to be convicted of 3rd Degree Murder, and is more likely to eat the lesser Manslaughter charge.

    I feel like that won't be enough to assuage the fury this time. The population's become too informed, too "woke," and too frustrated in their efforts to create real change for the better.

    And then there's this.

    Chauvin's trial seems to be delayed, so I hope they are not thinking that letting things burn will let the case slide. Mistreatment, policy brutality histories and the effects of bad policies dealing with COVID-19 seems to fuel the anger.

    I wonder how they'll find a jury that's relatively unbiased

    Impossible. We all know how it will go in the end.

    Anyway, can someone enlighten me why El Presidente is now blaming Zimbabwe?

    Ok, let's take this in parts:
    1) I am absolutely not opposed to violent protest. People HAVE tried peaceful protests, and it led to nothing. Many of the current ones actually started out peacefully until the police came in. People with power don't let go of that power unless you somehow make them.

    2) Yes. I am absolutely saying that 63 million are white supremacists by virtue of complicitness, if nothing else - though I'd bet good money a pretty hefty chunk of them absolutely would do the same kind of shit the McMichaels did if they thought they could get away with it.

    3) You *are* aware, I hope, of the hypocrisy of trying to paint all antifa (more of a decentralised ideology than an actual organised movement) protestants under the worst light possible because of the actions of some (*if* those actions should even be condemned in the first place - see point 1) while condemning doing the same thing to MAGA people for defending, actively supporting, or being complicit with white supremacy?
    1. That's kind of the issue. I don't tolerate violence at all, at least not in protests. Why not try for a revolution then? At least violence makes sense if you want to seize something by force, not start looting shops, many of whose owners are small proprietors!

    2. This is logically impossible when many of those people were black (a minority, but they exist) and most did it out of disgust with the Democratic Party rather than open support for some of the more braindead statements coming from Mr Populus. There's a really big difference between supremacists and just standard issue, old age racists.

    3. I have a trouble with whoever's rioting. Even if I wanted to say ANTIFA wasn't violent, I couldn't! They, the alt-right Boogalunatics and all kinds of cray dumb retards are pretty much destroying buildings and shitting over shops for the sake of kicking a ruckus! If it was government property, I'd be fine since it can be used to pressure the government, but all burning a dude's data recovery business is going to do is piss him and every person he works with off and he'll take the state line over yours because the state didn't shit on his business without compensation.

    ETA: "[H]e’s ashamed of his past behavior that included yelling obscenities and destroying property"? Fucking hell, someone give baby his warm milk and tuck him in bed before he hurts himself in his stupidity.



    Yeah, I don't know how else to tell you this, but if you see a *police officer murdering a man right on the street and go unpunished* and your main concern is with property damage? You are absolutely a part of the problem.

    My main concern is the way the protests are hurting people and not leading to change because they never do.

    He needs someone to invade and they are an easy target.

    I see Trump is still bent on making Transmetropolitan real.

    We're now entering Straight to Hell territory, which in theory means we should be nearing the end. Unfortunately, reality keeps being stranger than fiction.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Tbh, these protests remind me a bit of the build-up to the American Revolution. Not that I think it will reach that point, mind. Just that I see parallels.

    The whole thing should be over within a few days. What we learnt from history is that the treatment of African Americans will never improve. They will be the stepping stone of America just like their ancestors when they are forcefully brought over to work as slaves.

    Why is the fuck not being tried for, well... that in the first place? If I was Trump I'd pay the expenses of the prosecution so he gets jailed and this shit stops.

    Would certainly be amusing, but not quite what I meant XD.

    In other news, seems like Trump's crew and the police in general are targeting reporters and journalists covering the protests with violence.

    Also, infamously racist Steve King is out of office.

    You know, I watch all sorts of videos and go to /pol/ and /x/ and kiwifarms to stave off boredom and I do love myself a good schizo thread about vril and time cubes, but this is pretty far past 'don't trust everything you read on the internet' territory.

    I mean
    Clinton and his wife Hillary would be at the center of these conspiracy theories as prominent Republican voices like Rush Limbaugh played upon fears by linking them to a growing number of what they deemed suspicious deaths, a ploy to further the idea they were the heads of a vast criminal conspiracy.[6]
    Very carefully picked language here.

    Sure enough, a leader of a world power being an occultist only serves to showcase they're not fit for their position, because they are not relying on firm concepts in their thought. That goes both ways, for Clintons too. Is there a cult of personality of Trump going since 2016? Sure. Has Trump become a cultist of his own personality? Likely. Does he or anyone else that matters care about minutae apocryphal meme of somebody on the internet tying it to Chiliasm? That seems kind of stretching it.

    I haven't read that specific thread, but there does seem to be quite the overlap between fanatic Trumpers and evangelical messianism - what I've seen described as a "cult of Rapture".

    Granted, a lot of it also seems to be rooted in a Calvinistic belief that if you're rich, it's because God loves you, and if God loves you you must be spiritually pure, so...

    Basically, there are precious few things as pathetic as the middle class' worship of the type of money and power it will never have.
