Why do Community Mods feel the need to create trollish alt accounts?

Is rather unfettered power over the site and its userbase not enough?

Why did you feel the need to make a trollish alt account called MAGA4Lyfe? Or make memes such as this?

Why was that meme declined for “harassment” in the politics stream (where just about anything flies), yet is suitable to be reposted here?

Was it a little too on the nose?

I found it in Cringe_Hard, not politics

Indeed and I featured it on other streams as well.

Not politics though. It was declined for being harassment without explanation.

Does it really need an explanation though? It's pretty obvious why it was disapproved if you look at it for a few seconds

They were RNC speakers when you made that meme over 2 months ago? Are you telling me you can see the future or you have a time machine? Or are you just lying as usual?

The McCloskeys were honored with the distinction of an RNC speaking slot by waving guns in the faces of peaceable BLM supporters on their way to somewhere else, basically.

They apparently represent where the average Republican’s head space is at in 2020.

Speaking at the RNC is not a crime, but only adds an additional layer of delicious irony to this tale.

Armed assault was the crime. I’m sorry: The alleged crime caught on videotape and memed around the world.

The rioters were trespassing on their property and Missouri is a Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground state. The McCloskeys had every right to defend their property. Therefore, the McCloskeys did nothing wrong.

Oooh, now you’ve got me thinking about this fascinating subject of self-defense

Here are some hypos for you, presented in quiz format with no answers given so as to not insult your intelligence, although, hint: each pairing below contains one situation where castle doctrine/stand-your-ground applies and one situation where it doesn’t.

You ready?

A. A burglar in a disguise approaches and starts trying to pick your lock.
B. An Amazon delivery-boy drops a package on your front doorstep.

A. You bring a date home and they try to rape you.
B. You have a friend over for a relaxing dinner and they behave themselves.

A. A dude across the street points a gun at you.
B. Someone across the street farts in your general direction, claims your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

A. A BLM protest starts chucking Molotovs at your house.
B. You pull a gun on a BLM protest on its way to the mayor’s house because the media told you they were scary.

How’d you do?

That wasn’t so bad, was it?

And at this point you may be asking yourself: well, isn’t that all just common sense?

And the answer is: Yes!

Caste doctrine is nothing more than the codification of common sense!*

(*A certain kind of shoot-first, ask-questions-later kind of common sense that unfairly neglects the possibility of non-violent methods of conflict resolution even in tense situations, but admittedly, a common-sense that many and even most Americans subscribe to.)

That said: what is castle doctrine *not*?

The codification of lunacy, or a blank check to smoke anyone who looks at you funny inside your own home.

Make sense?

Some BLMs did indeed come on their property, hence why trespassing charges were filed against some of the BLM people. Due to the nationwide riots, the McCloskeys had reason to fear for their property being destroyed and their lives in danger as well. Therefore, Castle Doctrine is justified.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/nine-blm-protesters-cited-for-trespassing-on-st-louis-property-mccloskey-suspects-there-wont-be-any-charges Yeah yeah, Fox News bad, whatever.

Simple trespass still doesn’t trigger castle doctrine. Hence why the McCloskeys were charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon.

Yeah, Politico bad whatever.

It’s okay though, because now Al Watkins is on the defense team: Quite simply, the most exquisite lawyer ever to have passed the bar.

Truly beyond compare.

Although it’s always debatable whether Lincoln actually holds that distinction.

—The protestors were walking on the street, not the McCloskeys’ private property.
—“Stand your ground” and/or “castle doctrine” doesn’t give you the absolute right to wave a gun at someone who steps a toe over your property line, assuming that even happened.

The doctrine abrogates the so-called “duty to retreat” but there must still be a reasonable perception of threat such that a justification of self-defense is triggered.

Brandishing these guns at peaceful protestors on their way somewhere else was a totally disproportionate response.

Your meme is from a different protest and is a complete non-sequitur. The protest marching by the McCloskeys was peaceful; nothing was set on fire; nobody was hurt; nobody’s shit was taken. They were going to protest at the mayor’s house for having released names and addresses of BLM activists at a press conference 2 days prior.

Seeing these scenes plastered on the nightly news or in a meme or wherever doesn’t justify assaulting any and every BLM protest. You still have to use your brain.

The elephant in the room is the same one that's core to police brutality. Blacks are perceived by many in the U.S. as "threatening". So the Mc Closkeys are standing behind the castle doctrine with the "justification" that they felt threatened by all those blacks on the street.

Is a majority-black crowd peacefully marching by your house for their rights and social justice “threatening” such that self-defense doctrines are triggered?

That is the sole question at issue when you boil it down

Doubtful

But I have inspired much of your recent content, so.
