Harris Slammed

40 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Aroundthecorner

Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris has come in for criticism after saying that protests against racial injustice, including those by the Black Lives Matter group are 'essential' to keep police officers in check. 

Senator Harris D-Calif. made the comments during the NAACP's national convention in which she was interviewed for more than one hour and come just three days after two police officers were shot during rioting in Louisville. 

The shooting came after a grand jury's decision not to charge the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor. One of the officers involved was charged with wanton endangerment. 

From same article I just wondered how many actually pay into the system they make banners protesting about?

She's right.  It's why the founding fathers guaranteed the right to protest in the Constitution.

Does domestic terrorism come under the umbrella of the American Constitution ?

BLM is not a terrorist organization nor is it a terrorist movement. The vast majority of all BLM protests have been peaceful despite Trump's narrative to the contrary.

Agreed. At the same time, violent intervention from police doesn't make protests more peaceful. If anything, it only aggravates unrest.

I agree that not all protesters should be held accountable or blamed for the violence. The vast majority have good intention toward change. 

Its kind of like all gun users rights being threatened over shooter who does something inappropriate.

BLM "protestors" where complicit in the riots.

The police only ever intervened if the "protestors" where doing something illegal. Any "aggravation" arising from their intervention would be classed as resisting arrest, or worse. As for the Guardian opinion that "nearly all black lives matter protests where peaceful", would that be in the CNN sense of "Peaceful but fiery" by any chance ? 

The report has been criticised for downplaying the fact that many BLM protests turn violent.

If she said riots and murdering in the streets were essential, you and the others would have a point.  But she didn't, so you don't.

Support for BLM is dropping like a stone.  Support for organizations which have promoted BLM is also dropping fast.  NFL, NBA, MLB ratings are at all-time lows.  Angry parents are forcing School districts to purge BLM propaganda from curriculums.

Citizens view BLM as a terrorist organization, regardless of blind, insipid denials.

The Federal government has just named BLM's sister organizations, the Dem-created KKK and Antifa, as domestic terrorist groups.

The bell tolls for BLM...and those with ears hear it clearly.

Well by that standard, surely you'd agree that the NRA is complicit in Dylan Roof's shooting? Or the walmart in Texas? Or...literally too many others to mention within the character limit? Oh and that every single priest has to own Catholic pedophilia, every republican has to own infidelity, and on down the line.

Look pal, just because someone close to you did something ****ty, doesn't mean its your fault they decided to be dicks. I don't like the NRA, but they're not the ones who shot up black people and shopping centers, and I don't like the Catholic Church, but there's a big difference between a decent priest and Jared Fogle in a frock.

Source on all of that except number three? I don't doubt the third one because Trump would paint any group that mildly disapproves of his awful behavior as a terrorist, unamerican, or some other nonsense...

It's like I said, they can protest all day, and if their Government doesn't make a suitable change, then they have a vote to elect those who will make changes.

But if they expect certain mayors or Police, or Police unions to "change themselves" well they can keep protesting till hell freezes over. That's why running candidates and voting are so important.

Lol...how about you provide a credible source which shows BLM and the organizations which have promoted it are increasing in popularity?

You can't, because the vast majority of Americans are completely fed up with the violence and destruction that follows BLM everywhere it goes.

BLM is a dead-end...just like its sister organizations, KKK and Antifa.

I retired from spoon-feeding infants many years ago.

If you were truly interested in the truth, you'd be researching for answers yourself, not banging your rattle with your mouth wide-open.

No. There is zero comparison. The NRA lobbies for the responsible and safe use of guns. It has ZERO links to those lunatics.

BLM, on the other hand, shields and encourages rioters and looters. They have a direct linkage.

And of course SOME people in a widespread organization are dicks, hell there's Buddhists, friggin /buddhists/ going militant against Muslims. The organization itself, however, does not condone the looting. There's just a few douchebags who see civil strife and think 'time to get me a new TV'. That's how it always goes in situations like this, from Hurricane Katrina to Rodney King, there's always some ******* who just wants to grab free stuff.

Get serious Roof.  I have been a hunter off and on and a gun owner for  50 years.  They used to teach, and still do to some extent some hunter's safety classes.   But the focus shifted away from sportsmen with long guns 25-30 years ago.  It has become more about 2A fears and also preyed on insecurity  to become marketers for gun manufacturers.
