Oh, she explains, he doesn't use racist terminology. He just correctly identifies the nation or origin.

And she never lies, either.

She also seems to think the Antifa you love so much is a 'woke joke'.

She's a racist, too, just like you. And she thinks Antifa is an organization. We don't love "Antifa." We hate fascist activity and appreciate those who stand against it.

You think sending a social worker to deal with a guy asleep in his car is a bad idea. This, as ever, tells us about you, not about him or about Antifa.

If you are anti those who are anti-fascism, then you are pro-fascism. It's a definition thing.

Woman calls 911:
"A man is trying to break into my house,  he's big and is crazy,  I fear I'm going to be raped, murdered, or kidnapped, send the police, hurry."

911:
"Sorry,  there are no more police...I'll send over a social worker".

Defunding doesn't mean elimination of armed response police.   You argue in bad faith:  you pretend you didn't understand key points so you can caricature the other side's position.  It's why some of us don't directly reply to your rhetorical points anymore.
I find the best response to bambutt's "rhetorical points" is generally, Yes, but you are a RACIST.

Watched a move the other night

Could have ended it there. Nothing else in there was worth reading.

Mitch McConnell has declared that getting increasing numbers of conservative judges in place is more important to him than police reform.

A concerned dispatcher watching the death of George Floyd on surveillance cameras felt it was necessary to alert a supervisor about the use of force applied by the officers involved, according to an audio recording released by the Minneapolis Police Department on Monday.

The audio stamp on the recording indicates the call was made at 8:30 p.m. local time on May 25, around the time Floyd was being transported by ambulance to the Hennepin County Medical Center.

Quote
"I don't know, you can call me a snitch if you want to, but we have the cameras up for 320's call, and…I don't know if they had to use force or not, but they got something out of the back of the squad, and all of them sat on this man, so I don't know if they needed you or not, but they haven't said anything to me yet,” the dispatcher said on the audio call.

The Minneapolis Police Department also released two 911 transcripts, including one from an unidentified off-duty city firefighter who witnessed the incident and said,
Quote
“I’m on the block of 38th and Chicago and I literally watched police officers not take a pulse and not do anything to save a man, and I am a first responder myself, and I literally have it on video camera… I just happened to be on a walk so, this dude, this, they (expletive) killed him so..."

The off-duty firefighter offered to speak to a supervisor but when the 911 dispatcher tried to connect him, the call was disconnected, according to the transcript.

Quote
In another 911 transcript, an unidentified caller mentioned how an officer “pretty much just killed this guy that wasn’t resisting arrest.” The caller is then offered a chance to speak to a supervisor at the Minneapolis Third Precinct.

Worth surmounting the paywall.   Big Oil wants us to use more plastic - here is why that's not a good idea.

A worthwhile read, indeed. Thanks, Can!

One month ago, I asked epidemiologist Tara Smith if she was worried about states loosening their stay-at-home orders, despite most not meeting the government’s criteria for doing so.

“I am really fearful that by June 1 or June 15, after we’ve seen a couple weeks to a month of [state reopenings], that our cases are going to be climbing,” said Smith, a professor at the Kent State University College of Public Health.

Well, here we are. It’s June 12, and Covid-19 hospitalizations are rising in Arizona, the Carolinas, Utah, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, and perhaps Florida. Those states are also seeing higher numbers of positive Covid-19 tests, as well as increases in the percentage of tests that come back positive. This indicates that the higher case counts aren’t simply due to more widespread testing finding milder cases.

This will not make either Donald Trump or Lindsey Graham happy.

It should make Graham happy.

Trump is the KING of hearing, processing and responding.

Reading the prompter is not a real skill.

Trump hears and responds.

He often fails to process.

And you still have nothing to say about his inability to drink his water one-handed.

Kind of like your failure to admit you were wrong about the CNN report about the Secret Service.

I'm not opposed to social justice. If it's real, and if it accommodates reality.
The SVU piece is idiocy, and only an idiot would take it seriously.

The SJW demands conformity. He/she/they opposes diversity of thought, in the name of diversity; he/she/they can only entertain his/her/their POV. All others are inferior and must be lectured on the correct way to impose "justice".

The dumbfucks alienate the very people who can activate real change.

Weak.

You edited this after I'd already hit reply, so I missed some of your bullshit.

The bolded segment is your definition of what a Social Justice Warrior is, but it fits you far better - you epitomize rigidity. It's your way or the highway.

What is "The dumbfucks alienate the very people who can activate real change." but a lecture on the right way to impose "justice?"

And I reiterate - I would rather be weak my way than strong your way.

Oh, wait - you're claiming that you are one of "the very people who can activate real change."

Of course you are, UNO. Consider your head patted.

Where Kid, Ward, Bambi, and now apparently Cap see the future of African-Americans going:


Where Social Justice Warriors like you accommodate alternative views.

It's like you hadn't just replied to the post immediately before.

UNO, your position here is like somebody insisting that because I won't heed your insistence that man cannot influence the climate that therefore I am being rigid.

I put up more articles that conflict with a previously held position in a month than you do in a year.

Also, I know you say "Social Justice Warriors like you" as an insult, but as with so many of your (oh so gentlemanly) attacks, that you think it's an insult speaks volumes about you.

Oh, wait! This must be another of those "on your side" moments! Hah!

Guess you can't handle getting back what you hand out to others.

Weak.

Too fucking funny.

You really have a hard time telling the difference between your hypocrisy and my sensitivity. It's quite humorous.

And nothing to say about your opposition to social justice.

I'd rather be weak like me than strong like you any day of the week.
