The cops should paint over it.
What's DeBarfio going to do, fire them?
His protection detail should turn their backs on him and refuse to protect him. He is a total failure as a Mayor and has violated his oath office.
When the mayor allowed people to throw water on cops, that was when this shit should have been nipped in the bud.
A bit of an oversimplification there don’t you think. I am comparing the actions of the Nazis particularly of the brown shirts with current actions by leftist. The only difference is the ideology and the similarity is The possibility that not enough good men stood up to them.
Are the left rounding people up? Are the left utilizing a military police state to enforce a political agenda? Are the left advocating the targeting of a specific group of people based on race or religion.
White Christians perhaps? Odd, I know quite a few who have very liberal values and are still good Christians. Would you say they are acting against their best interests? Perhaps, but black people on the left often advocate the same. It doesn’t make it any less wrong.
If you think it’s okay condone law enforcement using excessive force against those with dissenting opinions, then you are letting yourself think like a fascist.
Just because they aren’t doing those things yet doesn’t mean they won’t or wouldn’t like to. Communists are not above using force against innocents for their opposition. As a matter of fact it is a hallmark of every communist revolution ever perpetrated. At some point you have to take a stand. Maybe if the Weimar Republic had stood up to Hitler and his henchmen his evil might have been contained. Then again appeasement over Czechoslovakia worked well didn’t it.
To pretend this is just about police brutality anymore is ridiculous. This is about much more than George Floyd or any other victim. Systemic racism is a lie. That doesn’t mean prejudices don’t exist. They certainly do and are held by a diverse group, not just whites.
And I’ve very happily constantly condemned them when they do. There were people who stood up to Hitler, they too ended up dead or sent away to the camps. Hitler appealed to the nationalist sentimentality that allowed his uncritical power to flourish that by the time he had the necessary control that it was too late to resist him and his regime.
I never claimed whites are the only ones who are prejudiced. I only claimed to be disappointed that you think it’s acceptable against those with different political ideas.
So the people that stood up should not have? We should allow evil to go unchecked? Those who stood up and died in whatever fashion were truly heroes.
Unfortunately your sentiment is what they prey in. They use your decency against you. They have no problem violently attacking the opposition or Simply innocent people or silencing dissenting voices. Fire with fire.
People are standing up right now and are being ushered into unmarked vehicles. Those who acceptably challenge the state are allowed to do long as they are acceptable outages. Once there are acceptable outrage, it’s not really outrage.
Decency is not a weakness but a strength. Those who forgo their decency are no different than the violence they condemn.
I didn't read Mein Kampf until I was in my forties, unfortunately. At the time it was quite taboo and as a child of German parents it was not exactly a good idea to read it during high school or college. I quite regret not doing so, because I was incredibly worried if I might, in fact, find the book quite appealing. I was very happy to find that I did not.
I am going to have to disagree that there were people on all sides that agreed with him. My family experienced that time with first hand accounts and I will say that their words, to them, felt like they were swept up in an ocean of madness and fear.
The Nazis came to power politically, not through protest. As you so often like to say, there is no such thing as hate speech, just speech you do not agree with. You're very free to disagree with them but if your response is to let the police state brutally f them up... well, that is enabling fascists to power.
Not quite. I suppose it was wrong to say there were no protests that didn't have some national or socialist ideology. But to associate them before the Nazi Party became Hitlers is not entirely accurate. Unless i'm severely mistaken the eugenics of the Nazi Party didn't become more prominently known until after Hitler assumed power.
Bluessol said "I think I’m no longer against police brutality, turn em loose and f them up. Starting with the Mayor" I find political differences that must be resolved through violence abhorrent. I'm sorry you were so easily confused. My wife nor Nick Cannon really have nothing to do with it.
My political position and opinions on Trump is about as relevant as Bluessol's and your own. In that, they are not relevant to the topic at hand. I have plenty of comments on Imgflip where I would be happy to discuss Trump's shortcomings and successes. But not here. I'm pretty sure we've both said our piece.
Irrelevant if it's figurative or literal. Bottom line, solving political differences through violence is abhorrent.

Hey man....didn't realize my comments were not welcomed. Thought he was dogpiling on you. But I deleted the comments :)
I took exception to THIS comment attacking you by Timber1972
"Have you stopped beating your wife?"
That's a horrible accusation.
But, maybe you two have this tough talk thing going on I'm not aware.
In any case, didn't mean to butt in. Enjoy your weekend with your grandkiddos.

Nah, if you look in the comments above, I saw that Dr.Stangelove asked for it to be deleted, so I did so as a courtesy to him. The guy was talking about his grandkids, and you your family. Not going to f*** with that. Not sure why you'd ask him "if he beats his wife", if you're chums. Kind of a f**ked up thing to do. But that's between you and him. Maybe you have an S&M thing going there, figuratively speaking.
The irony is that it’s taxpayer dollars that fund the paychecks of the police. The police are there to protect and serve the citizens. When they cease to do that and they’re actually hurting citizens, then what are we paying for?
Then there’s a whole system in place to circumvent accountability that creates a culture of entitlement and lawlessness. It behooves us as Americans to fight tyranny and change the system.
