  1. Indeed...."black Americans" are not a monolithic block that universally thinks cops hate them. In many "black communities", the need and demand for good police services and law enforcement is even higher. The Black Panther Party tried this tactic back in the turbulent 1960's and early 1970's....but ultimately lost black support. "Kill the Pigs" will only get you so far.
  2. Senator Joe Biden wrote the 1994 Crime Bill...not Donald Trump.
  3. A majority of polled American voters support using the military to get violent protests and rioting under control. https://www.forbes.com/sites/nicholasreimann/2020/06/02/58-of-voters-support-using-military-to-help-police-control-protests-poll-finds/#6b5cd5b52417
  4. 58% of polled Americans support using the military to quell rioting.

    Quote

    Some 58% of registered voters polled by Morning Consult support the deployment of the military to aid police responding to protests, with 33% of the 1,624 respondents saying they’d “strongly support” it and only 30% opposing.

  5. Justin Trudeau goes brain dead for 21 seconds...how refreshing !

      Right-wing tactics utilize intentional overt flaws (similar to how the Nigerian scams utilize intentional bad language and ill logic to appear as open and weak but more relateable for appearing weak.) This relates to the Machiavellian tactic of being bold regardless of one's clear flaws, and to embrace double-speak as though by accident. For instance, Trump uses the phonetic sound conflict between, "they're" and "their". Then you list statements using one but not the other until the last sentence in which you can flip the meaning with intentional confusion:

      "They are bringing their criminals; they are bringing their weak; (They are bringing) their rapist." Leaving out the first part then appears as being on of either, 

      ? "They're rapists"  is phonetically ambivalent to also mean, "...their rapists". The similar sound with different meanings is an overt use of both ellipses and apparent coincidental double speak without one being able to prove which is meant. The fact that Trump doesn't correct this is then intentional so as to appeal to a larger audience that happens to include the racists who presume he meant that all Mexicans are racist.

       

      Left-wing tactics utilize intentional ellipses (= rhetoric that begs others to fill the gaps, like silence.) People prefer less words as profound because EACH person witnessing the propaganda fill in the blank spaces with content that comes out of their own mind, like how generic love songs are more popular than specific songs with clear stories or expressed views.

      [This is more powerful for the democratic mindset since it is based upon all people's desire to read into things rather than be TOLD directly. But it is more intentional since we assume these personalities as 'wiser' and more likable universally.]

      On Tuesday morning, Trudeau was asked if he would condemn the president publicly — and what message he would be sending if he didn't. The reporter finished asking the question, but Trudeau remained quiet. Twice, he opened his mouth as if he was about to say something, but no words came. Finally, he started to respond:

  6. You mean it wasn't 1953 after all ? How about 1968....MLK Jr. was shot dead and the perp fled to Canada !
  7. Justin Trudeau should try wearing blackface now...bet he won't.

  8. It's another creative analogy (I have read many from Canada over the years), but it happens regardless of who may be the U.S. president...going back decades. I agree that the cross border psyche and media believes that the U.S. has real and imagined influence over Canada, even as Ottawa roars about sovereign independence. And it has gotten worse as Canada ingests even more American political media and culture...by choice. Statistically, you are far more likely to have an incident/accident with your fellow passenger car drivers...better watch them too. It's not the size of the truck...it is the size of what Canada wants from inside the truck. Mexico is less obsessed with Trump...but like Canada, also wants what is inside the truck.
  9. Canada even watches America "north of the 49th"...it is just what Canada does....keep watching.
  10. History is repeating itself....1960's social unrest, protests, rioting, even assassinations peaked in 1968 after two Democrat presidents (JFK & LBJ). Nixon promised more "law and order".... and won the '68 election.
  11. Trudeau is your problem, not mine....but you choose to make Trump your problem as well for reasons only you understand. I have seen plenty of President Trump....he was at the Cape to watch the Space X Crew Dragon launch with many other Americans...and spoke directly to the current "crisis". Canada can only watch...as usual.
  12. Telling of what ? So called "progressives" are so much better at race baiting from across the border. Obama cop killings riots good...Trump riots bad ?
  13. Yes they can...by going to the United States...like Amy Cooper.
  14. Except in Vancouver, where all it takes to get a large riot is losing a Stanley Cup hockey game 7.
  15. Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic has cost far more lives and economic impact than all of the George Floyd protests or riots in several U.S. cities over many years. Nevertheless, social unrest and rioting remains a very American experience going back to the Boston Tea Party. Race riots, 1960's riots, Rodney King in L.A., labour conflicts, anti-war protests, civil rights marches, etc. didn't have the relatively recent factor of dedicated anarchists hell bent on wanton destruction and chaos. Curfews mean nothing without enforcement and citizen support. Local and state government underestimated the threat and necessary deployment of overwhelming police forces in a timely manner. The "progressive" politics/leadership of Minneapolis and St. Paul vs. the governor and Trump helped to set the stage for an inadequate response. Minority owned and other businesses have been sacrificed for police and public safety...the cops even abandoned one precinct building which quickly went up in flames. The governor has admitted that he doesn't have enough police resources even with the state patrol and national guard. He may have to take Trump's offer of assistance from U.S. Army military police units to get enough boots on the ground. This is something that no "blue state" governor wants to do in an election year, but he has little choice as the pressure mounts to "do something" to restore civil order.
  16. So what's Canada's excuse, #12 in the world for deaths per million, even after worshiping the WHO ? I guess the WHO wasn't much help for long term care facilities, eh ?
  17. Amy Cooper investigated by NY human rights commission...same as Canada!

  18. Agreed...both Cooper's were old enough to know better. So called "social justice warriors" play this game because there is a ready made audience to join the "cause" and blow it up on the Interwebs. George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer with "extreme prejudice", but the same Interwebs are revealing that he was no gentle giant, having served multiple sentences for aggravated robbery, assault, drug possession, etc. George Floyd left Texas prison to start new life in Minneapolis
  19. Amy Marie Cooper....no relation to Christian Cooper...and her Cocker Spaniel ("Henry"). Has her life gone from highly paid, resident "green card" alien to Hated Karen, Witch of the Internet ? ...they even took her dog away.
  20. There is also evidence that violent protesters started some of the fires...there is lots of video.
  21. Hey, look at the bright side....it is good to see America getting back to normal after all the COVID-19 shutdown nonsense. ...it's going to be a long, hot summer...like 1968. President Trump just picked up a lot more votes !
  22. Yep...media is reporting her as attending school in Canada. Others are demanding that her ass be deported !
  23. Central Park "Karen" is Canadian...can't make this stuff up !
