Using Trumps misinformation and obfuscation tactics.

Luckily it only is only minimally effective on the uneducated and the angry far right.

This is the wrong venue to reach those targets.


Rudy, I provided links and proof for my information.
You just don't like the facts.

I finally found something about a white being shot and killed by the police. It's a Washington Post article.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washin ... utType=amp

Daniel Shaver is his name. It happened 4 years ago. There were no riots, no protests, no looting, no burning buildings, no high profile white speaker at his funeral. He just died.

The writer of the piece sums it up by saying whites compartmentalize the death while blacks internalize it thinking it could have been them. Interesting read.

I think we've established that he can't read.


Or won't
I have plenty of links and sites and facts, statistics from real experts that will spell out and coherently verify
what we're saying, but it truly is useless in the face of such malignant, relentless trolling.
We know. We can see the maggots at work.
That's all that matters to me.

Rudy, I'm the one that posted the links on police killings!! I can read just fine.

Read the above article I posted by the WaPo. Is that what you do when a cop kills another white, compartmentalize it instead of protesting? Or do you internalize it and say "hey, that could have been me"?

America sure does seem to be having a lot of
bad luck lately.
It's almost as if it was built on top of some ancient Indian burial grounds or something.

One of the finest Americans who ever lived. A man of great courage and conviction with the physical scars to prove it.

I reported the post.

I don’t necessarily think he should be removed, but that sort of nasty, hateful bullshit just makes the forum a shitty place to be and to be seen in. That’s all.

This is precisely why several of us called him out repeatedly.
Reporting and censure are well-deserved.

In today's climate with a bumbling racist President chiding along people like Roots, its only going to get worse before November. How many crazy Trump followers have driven their cars into BLM protesters this year, a couple of dozen?

Now we have Federal agents with no insignias or identification, rounding up protesters when they are just walking along in places like Portland Oregon.

This is how it starts.

Sending Federal storm troopers into various cities run by Democrats is a pretty fascist move by anyone's standards no?
How low can he go?

Pretty low, according to John...

John W. Whitehead wrote:“I don’t need invitations by the state, state mayors, or state governors, to do our job. We’re going to do that, whether they like us there or not.”—Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf’s defense of the Trump Administration’s deployment of militarized federal police to address civil unrest in the states...


He believes our tenth amendment might be in peril? Seeing how most are being tested to their hilt it's not hard to see his point.

The 2020 election will be held in circumstances that make it impossible to be fair. It will go ahead anyway and Trump will win.

He's been defeated by a microbe and its beginning to sink in, but I expect Trump's cabal of constitutional vandals will attempt to upset and suppress the vote anyway they can.

I think he's going to lose amidst a shitload of legal challenges, but Trumpism ends in 2022 when the remaining MAGA Governors are voted out.

A federal judge in Mississippi is challenging the long-standing qualified immunity for police officers after the harassment of a motorist in that state, reports Marjorie Cohn.

Marjorie Cohn wrote:Qualified immunity has entered the national discourse with the massive uprisings in the wake of the public lynching of George Floyd. It allows police and other government officials to escape liability for their law breaking.

In Jamison v. McClendon, U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves recently concluded that Officer Nick McClendon violated Clarence Jamison’s Fourth Amendment rights when he subjected Jamison to a nearly two-hour ordeal that included badgering, pressuring, lying and intrusively searching his car.

But the judge’s hands were tied by the qualified immunity doctrine so he was forced to deny Jamison’s legal claim. Reeves, an African-American man, traced the development of the law and the institutional racism and police brutality that continue to plague our society. “Black people in this country are acutely aware of the danger traffic stops pose to Black lives,” the judge wrote.


Seems like reform is very much needed, but i wonder if police officers were liable, rather than tax payers, how many folks would still wanna be a police officer? Seems like even any malpractice insurance would be a bit steep.
