Rather you gloss over the facts you don't like.

A casual google search came up with this.

https://www.cnn.com/2017/01/19/politics ... index.html

Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington.

At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN. Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said the officers’ injuries were considered minor and not life threatening.

Bursts of chaos erupted on 12th and K streets as black-clad “antifascist” protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police lined up in an eastbound crosswalk. Officers responded by launching smoke and flash-bang devices, which could be heard from blocks away, into the street to disperse the crowds.

“Pepper spray and other control devices were used to control the criminal actors and protect persons and property,” police said.

Anti-Trump protests also broke out Friday in US cities, including New York, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago and Portland, Oregon. Authorities in Seattle say one person was in critical condition at a hospital with a gunshot wound. Demonstrations also took place overseas in Hong Kong, Berlin and London.

In Washington, Newsham told CNN the several hundred demonstrators who actively confronted police were vastly outnumbered by the thousands of nonviolent protesters who swarmed the nation’s capital for Inauguration Day and Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington.

“We have been pointing out all along that this is a very isolated incident, and by and large, everything is going peacefully and a lot of folks have come to the city to enjoy this historic day, not only the Capitol but walking all around the city,” he said.

But many protesters, including permitted marchers, accused security personnel of denying them access to their planned routes.

Ashley Link, 37, made her way to Franklin Square after an ANSWER Coalition protest slated for the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue, about a mile away, was effectively blocked by what many there described as onerous security restrictions. She expressed concern that isolated clashes with police would overshadow other messages on display, but sympathized with the rowdier elements in the street.

“I’m all about peaceful protesting, practicing nonviolence, but at the same time, I understand why people are so frustrated,” she said. “They are so upset about so many things in our country right now that to make a poster? There’s not a poster big enough to cover all the things that people are frustrated about.”

Hours earlier, Lysander Reid-Powell, a 20-year-old student from New Mexico, joined in a Black Lives Matter-led blockade of an entrance onto the National Mall.

“I think Donald Trump is a fascist, and it’s very easy for people, especially people who are in pain, to slip into fascism,” he said. “It’s easy for people to feel like the individual has no power and that you’re just one small little ant in the big hill, so ultimately all that matters is popular resistance.”

Again, not near the same level, but we see a pattern here of glossing things over when it suits your narrative


So where was the murder you claimed?

Also if we're going to talk about glossing over things when it suits your narrative:

In Washington, Newsham told CNN the several hundred demonstrators who actively confronted police were vastly outnumbered by the thousands of nonviolent protesters who swarmed the nation's capital for Inauguration Day and Saturday's Women's March on Washington.

"We have been pointing out all along that this is a very isolated incident, and by and large, everything is going peacefully and a lot of folks have come to the city to enjoy this historic day, not only the Capitol but walking all around the city," he said.


Sorry if it upsets you to see a feminist movement depicted positively, but to equate this to an attempted insurrection and the actual murder of a police officer is so disingenuous it's not even funny.

We had violence and looting back in 2017. I do not know if the man shot in Seattle in the trump inauguration protests died, but that might be down luck.

Suffice to say, it wasn't all innocent little lambs that did nothing wrong back then either - there was also assault, arson, attempted murder (at least). It's a cascading pattern of violence for years now.

Yeah. It's fair to note a lot of racist (and sexist) things slip into common usage over time, and wind up being used unknowingly by a lot of people who don't know the origin.

Thank you for making me aware.

I had no idea where it specifically came from but I assume anything written to mimic a speech pattern is an expression of contempt for a group of people and I figured that that one was black.

I was assuming this was about the attack on congress because it's pretty much the sentiment I've heard separating protestors from the rioters. Things getting more serious while people insist they're fine is pretty much what escalation looks like. Thankfully we're at a point where if trump supporters seize control of a piece of territory and declare themselves self governing it will technically be a step back from madness, by sheet limitation of options it's going to be hard for it to get worse

That is one of the triumphs of the verminous horde trying to resurrect the Confederation with its economy based upon slavery and racism and the deranged wretches lusting for the genocidal totalitarianism of the Third Reich: right wing extremist terms and principles becoming increasingly mainstream.

Yeah, I had to coach the person who was using it in chat at the office that I got it from now that I was informed about it. She didn't know either, so it was an inform and cut it out type conversation.

Tbh, I thought it was making fun of meth users. Where I'm from, that sounds like hillbillies busted for using meth.

So the news is saying Trump wants a military send off but when I google it I also get things saying that the military won’t be doing it but by “it” it seems like a thing they normally do and not what he’s asking for and I’m confused.

Also, having the capitol surrounded by soldiers to protect it from followers you whipped up isn’t enough?

Two different things
He wants a military send-off (what he’s getting)
The traditional thing they give outgoing Presidents is a farewell celebration from the Pentagon specifically. That’s the one he’s not getting.

"I'll edit" would usually be taken as gracious concession of the point.

Galloism added "Thank you for making me aware." Because he's a gentleman, I guess.

You guys are like a dog with a bone here, aren't you?

Look, the context of its usage has been exclusively to disparage black victims of police violence and the use of the vernacular spelling is another dead give away. The great mistake in considering the spread of racism in America is that it's white hoods and burning crosses or nothing. But that's just not the case. White supremacy requires a compliant self styled 'moderate' class that will take up the mantle of dismissing the drive for civil rights by focusing on the violence or joining the chorus saying that 'kneeling during the national anthem is not the time or place' and anything else that moves the conversation away from the message and towards dismissing and diminishing the effort.

The blindness to playing into the white supremacist narrative to the point where someone sees a racist mob attack the US capitol and the first response is to bend over backwards to find a way to make this the civil rights movement's fault and ask them to re-condemn the violence when they were repeatedly called on to do it in the moment and frequently did goes hand in hand with a blindness to seeing a phrase like 'dindu nuthin' and not immediately recognize its context. It raises them to an impossible standard that then forever will implicate them in the exact kind of racism they have been talking about for decades.

So it does tell you everything you need to know. But please, keep bringing this up over and over again like you've scored the gotcha of the century. Even Gallo stopped giving a fuck about it, but like that little yippy sycophantic dog that follows the bulldog in the cartoons, you cats can't stop yourself from jumping all around.

And since you can't seem to fucking move on...

I don't really care about people's race when evaluating whether or not I'm pleased with their behavior, you know because I'm not a racist.

The great mistake in considering the spread of racism in America is that it's white hoods and burning crosses or nothing. But that's just not the case. White supremacy requires a compliant self styled 'moderate' class that will take up the mantle of dismissing the drive for civil rights by focusing on the violence or joining the chorus saying that 'kneeling during the national anthem is not the time or place' and anything else that moves the conversation away from the message and towards dismissing and diminishing the effort.

The blindness to playing into the white supremacist narrative to the point where someone sees a racist mob attack the US capitol and the first response is to bend over backwards to find a way to make this the civil rights movement's fault and ask them to re-condemn the violence when they were repeatedly called on to do it in the moment and frequently did goes hand in hand with a blindness to seeing a phrase like 'dindu nuthin' and not immediately recognize its context. It raises them to an impossible standard that then forever will implicate them in the exact kind of racism they have been talking about for decades.

So it does tell you everything you need to know. But please, keep bringing this up over and over again like you've scored the gotcha of the century. Even Gallo stopped giving a fuck about it, but like that little yippy sycophantic dog that follows the bulldog in the cartoons, you cats can't stop yourself from jumping all around.

And since you can't seem to fucking move on...
Pretty fucking sure that 'murica' is white dudes making fun of other white dudes, so run with those false equivalences.


Hey do you ever shit your pants and complain that other people keep won't shut up about how you just shit your pants?

I don't really care about people's race when evaluating whether or not I'm pleased with their behavior, you know because I'm not a racist.

Alright slugger, when you get around to wanting to make an argument and not tell my how shitty I am, hit me up.

"I'll edit" would usually be taken as gracious concession of the point.

Galloism added "Thank you for making me aware." Because he's a gentleman, I guess.

Or should that be "gentlesith"?

what post would I be editing...?

Pro-tip: don't argue the thing you were a dick about "goes hand in hand" with the conversation and then act like it's a digression of the when people talk about it. Your entire conduct has been like an extended metaphor for the problem. You started from an insane place where not knowing the etymology of every phrase in the english language is a victory for white supremacy, insult someone who had no desire to offend anyone after they behaved totally graciously, and then went on to call anyone who refused to ignore the not okay way you were acting like cartoon dogs. This is of course on the heels of nakedly minimizing weeks and weeks of violence, chaos, and attacks on our government institutions. It's cool though, cause it's not like some people expressly defended destroying police stations or looting, what matters is the big visible players said "hey that's naughty." Luckily, Trump has said the siege was bad which means he's not accountable for any of the fucked up shit he did, said, or ignored that may have contributed to- Everything's cool now, why are you being uncool about this?

What we need is a trumpeteer here ready to mirror this bullshit, to refer to the capitol siege as one little snag during a larger nationwide protest in the name of free and fair elections as insistently you whitewash firebombing police stations as being a civil rights movement.

Like I said, any time you’d like to make an argument, that’d be great.

What I’m reading is a lot of whining. That’s three chances and you can’t get off my dick and onto a coherent argument. Since no one is interested in whatever little beef you have with me, we’ll be moving on to the ignore list so this thread can move on.
