Sure, that would suck. But when I consider Biden vs. Zuck...I don't know, that's a tough one. Prob Biden. Whatever.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/01/politics/republican-reaction-floyd-death-congress/index.html - they do not get it, empathy, trying to heal will remove the spotlight from Trump, he's incapable of thinking beyond himself, his needs, it's got to be all about Trump 24/7 365 days, it'll never happen.

Honest question(s)....

So what happens if Trump deploys the military on American citizens? What happens if he deploys them and they refuse?

Aside from him tear gassing a peaceful demonstration for a photo op, the “civilian” part of this is troubling. How is the inclusion of that word along with invoking the 2nd Amendment anything other than asking rednecks to take their assault weapons to the streets?

I’d imagine, depending on the commander, they would be court martialed, beaten, or joined. But It would be pretty fractured.

If a dude in a bunker yelling at subordinates that they should order the military to shoot at civilians seems familiar, it's because you've seen Der Untergang.

you can vote for those who take a stand against it, for people who propose solutions against it. solutions based in cop reform, financial reforms, end to systematic racism.

Myabe it's a start. Not voting blue certainly isn't.

This is very true. But at least with the blue candidates, you have a 50/50 shot at not getting a bootlicker.

Yeah, I just assumed it was gonna be horsefeathers and didn't watch it until I saw some of the posts about it. He had some righteous anger in that clip.

Piggy-backing on this there's video of a carload of white people, in a Mercedes Benz, of course, cruising Minneapolis or St. Paul attempting to give black people bricks. They get caught by an observer who grabs the brick, opens the door and gives it back, yelling at them, asking, amongst other things, WTF are they doing? Really just WHAT THE horsefeathers we're they trying to do? The license plate of the vehicle can be clearly read, it's my hope they get arrested.
