If the left really cared about equality under the law, then it would also matter when white people were killed by cops. (By the way a black leftist I listen to pointed this out). Also, George Floyd was a criminal. This does not justify his death, but he is by no means a martyr.
Equality is not what the left is after. It’s just revenge.
Notice I am not saying that this cop is not a murderer. I believed he was from the beginning. And George Floyd’s life did matter. But what I am pointing out is that this is not a step toward equality. We already blew that in the water months ago. What we are purporting is reverse inequality. This is not the first time people have been tricked by people claiming to want said equality. While I do believe that we should aim for equality, it is difficult to gage whether or not to trust people who claim to support it. Hitler and Zedong both claimed they would elevate weaker people, and look what they did. And with leftists demonizing Republicans the way that they are, it’s even more difficult to trust this. We’re pushing equality under the disguise of tyranny. In the Cultural Revolution in China, they claimed everyone was equal, but that went right in the trash if you didn’t agree with the government.

" Hitler and Zedong both claimed they would elevate weaker people, and look what they did. "
>> Trump did that by playing into the victim card and giving the masses of racists who were playing the victim what they wanted. But, sure, in the end all internet discussions eventually cite Hitler, so why not?
"And with leftists demonizing Republicans the way that they are,"
>> LOL, seriously?! Who says "the Radical Right" I can tell you who often said "The Radical Left."
it’s even more difficult to trust this.
>> Its even more difficult to take you seriously.
We’re pushing equality under the disguise of tyranny.
>> You're calling it tryanny so that for the less informed it will take that visage to them. As they will see what they want to see.
"In the Cultural Revolution in China, they claimed everyone was equal, but that went right in the trash if you didn’t agree with the government."

No, he didn’t. Trump helped black people with education (something CNN would never want you to know) and works with people no matter their skin color. Plus Trump playing a victim would not even remotely be the same as Hitler or Zedong, who never did that. They exploited others’ victimhood, which Trump has not done.
Also, just evaluate Hitler comparisons by merit and not their existence. You just cited one with Trump but then threw another one away. Pedro Pascal was completely fine for comparing Trump to Nazis but Gina Carano was fired for actually pointing out a similarity between now and pre-Nazi Germany (which she had a very valid point about).
We only talk about the “radical left”, while some leftists like AOC and Maxine say things like “we need to collect names of trump supporters” and that ALL conservatives are criminals. Plus we aren’t the ones bullying our agenda right now. But to be honest, I have heard “the radical right” from some people.
Are you accusing me of intentional lying? I am saying this because it’s actually happening. And the Cultural Revolution is relevant because it is literally the exact same thing. Promising equality but then ditching that for people who oppose you. If you don’t support BLM, you’re a degenerate racist who should be intentionally unemployed. At least that is how we are acting right now. And in China they jacked people over for being rightist. The idea of equality is ditched when you don’t fall in line. There is the similarity.

>> So there was absolutely no victimization on the 1/6 speech this year? You wanna place bets? I would advise against it.

>> Yeah, we're the bullies who say "F**k your feelings." Whenever Trump spoke about the left he often was inclusive and classified the left as radical. Calling out Democrat-run cities for violence and unrest while failing to acknowledge the cities of the right. Come on, man.

Are you accusing me of intentional lying?
>> I guess that would be unfair of me. You're either lying or woefully ignorant.

If you don’t support BLM, you’re a degenerate racist who should be intentionally unemployed.
>> Show me where such a false dilemma exists. Show me where one chose not to support BLM and took a neutral stance and was called to be fired. And no, ALM is not neutral.

You can't compare China and the USA in that context, two very different countries with two very different issues. Though, anyone who opposed Trump or the Right-Wing was silenced, fired, censured (censured by the government, mind you), or even had death threats against them. I mean hell, you guys were horrible to our veterans even.

Do you protest when innocent white people are murdered by the cops? I've long thought the problem was not black people protesting too much but white people licking the cops' boots.

I don’t protest either. I think violent protesting is kinda dumb. I am against it though, whether it’s white or black people.

I don't see how letting the legal system go through the usual procedure to deal with a murderer properly is anything but appropriate, EQUAL justice. If cops kill white citizens, they deserve the same justice. This isn't the Cultural Revolution; this is a traditional jury trial.

I never opposed the trial. Matter of fact, I believed it should have been dealt with much earlier. What I am pointing out is that we don’t even pay attention to the white people when they’re killed. What you just said is not being represented by the left.
And I never equated the trial with the Cultural Revolution; I equated pushing fake equality with that.

It seems that you see the emphasis on the trial as a way of "pushing fake equality", so by syllogism, you do connect the emphasis on the trial and the verdict to the Cultural Revolution.

I'm not aware of anyone on the left saying that it's okay for cops to kill white people.
reply

I specifically said I had no problem with the trial and that the fake equality was only because the left wasn’t treating whites with the same respect as blacks. The trial itself is not my problem.

No one “said” that, but the media doesn’t really care. It’s ignored when it happens. Do you think it actually never happens? Because the media doesn’t tell us when it does.

"If the left really cared about equality under the law, then it would also matter when white people were killed by cops. (By the way a black leftist I listen to pointed this out)."
>> He's privileged then, or doing this to make money. Anyway, this tells me he doesn't understand the meaning of BLM, he never read their charter or what their mission was or why they were formed in the first place. So it's pretty easy to spot the lie there. This is a "Don't all lives matter?" approach. It's more transparent than a windexed window dude, lol.

"Also, George Floyd was a criminal. This does not justify his death, but he is by no means a martyr.
Equality is not what the left is after. It’s just revenge."
>> Nah, they are after equality, but it's not equality they're crying out for. They're crying out for justice because they've been robbed of their equality. True justice never involves death, or does it? It really depends on the socio-ethical approach you take. He also wasn't a criminal. The twenty dollar bill he received was received from an ATM, he didn't know it was counterfeit. So, again, you're using the Alt-Reich's use of "But he's a criminal" in an attempt to apply reductionism.

" And George Floyd’s life did matter. But what I am pointing out is that this is not a step toward equality. We already blew that in the water months ago. What we are purporting is reverse inequality. This is not the first time people have been tricked by people claiming to want said equality. While I do believe that we should aim for equality, it is difficult to gage whether or not to trust people who claim to support it."
>> Have you heard of the Charlottesville riot? That's the rhetoric you're repeating and what they believed in. That whites are going to become the oppressed. It's clever rhetoric because they do an incendiary action to invoke an equally incendiary reaction. At first, its a phenomena, then it keeps happening until it's normalized, then as you state, the pendulum swings. Though, the route in which this is happening is not the fault of BLM, it's literally the victim card. It's badgering the minorities to react until your accusations become a reality.

When I say You/your I mean the general population of the right decrying denouncing the BLM movement and the claims of racism that are going on.

I was talking about the left, and you talked about BLM. Yes, BLM is racist, now that you mention it. And I myself have read their mission and agenda, and that is why i support #Blexit instead. First off, their agenda talks about supporting cisgender rights (why do we have to support all this gender stuff to support black people), and they literally mention every family member except for the fathers in their site. (They do change their site every so often though). But if you really cared for black people, you’d fight to keep their fathers in their homes. Many black people that become criminals didn’t have a father at home. A high percentage of blacks don’t have a father in the home. But the left doesn’t tell you this. They just want to complain. Plus, you really didn’t disprove my point there. All lives should matter, whether BLM or the left wants to acknowledge that. And this is coming from someone who is mostly black.

I just mentioned that white people have been killed by cops and the media doesn’t care. Who’s crying out for equality on their side? No one, because then you’ll be called a spoiled racist if you have the audacity to. By the way, I learned this from that same black leftist, (whose name is John McWhorter). Also, I don’t support death unless someone did something really wrong, like kill many people intentionally. Then, how do you know what he didn’t know? He isn’t there to tell us. Plus this wasn’t even the first time he was involved in criminal activity. He was in jail for 4 years before this event.

That doesn’t mean that what I am saying will not happen, although I have considered the possibility of this equality pursuit just going back and forth for decades. Also, if this happens, we aren’t to blame. We’re not the ones going overboard. I saw this happening from the beginning. And like I said, it’s already happening. People aren’t even caring about stories about white people overcoming adversity anymore.

Also, I am not playing a victim card. I am more black than white. I’m not trying to defend myself; I’m fighting for what is right. Also, I don’t know what you’ve heard from other people, but I have my own brain. I had many of these opinions even before the right said anything about it.

>> Right-wing usually conflates BLM, the left, democrats, communism, pedophiles, satan himself, the klu klux klan, nazis, idiots, college elites, etc...

Yes, BLM is racist
>> No it's not.

I have read their mission, that is why i support #Blexit instead.
>> You support Blexit because you read BLM Mission statement. You can say you read it, did you research?

Their agenda talks about supporting cisgender rights, and they literally mention every family member except for the fathers in their site. But if you really cared for black people, you’d fight to keep their fathers in their homes. Many black people that become criminals didn’t have a father at home.

>> Wow, so now we're onto mysoginy coupled with racial stereotypes. I didn't prove your point either, I said your point is a mischaracterization of the actual. Do you have a link that shows what you're talking about?

I just mentioned that white people have been killed by cops and the media doesn’t care. You’ll be called a spoiled racist if you have the audacity to.
>> Show me an instance where this was a public issue.

Plus this wasn’t even the first time he was involved in criminal activity. He was in jail for 4 years before this event.
>> So because he was a criminal, that makes his death okay or excusable? I don't know why you're bringing up his history in this conversation.

I have considered the possibility of this equality pursuit just going back and forth for decades. I saw this happening from the beginning. People aren’t even caring about stories about white people overcoming adversity anymore.
>> That's because whites don't have adversity. Ask me how I know.
