Will It Be Riot Season Again in 2024?


WVK

Recommended Posts

The resurgence of public protests in support of Hamas has revealed a disturbing truth: the left-wing rioting following George Floyd’s death in 2020 was not an anomaly, but a tactic that activists can repurpose for any cause. Whether by coincidence or design, these recent outbursts could be a dress rehearsal for possible violence during next year’s election campaign.

Conservative leaders must prepare for that prospect. To prevent 2020 from repeating itself in 2024, conservatives need to consider what might spark a riot, how it can be prevented, and how to understand and manage the politics of rioting.

First, what could generate a riot season? Left-wing agitation has some familiar causes: a police-involved death of a black person; an international conflict; an economic crisis. But another threat looms. Former president Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, faces multiple criminal indictments. Trump may well be convicted and imprisoned, likely yielding explosive consequences, including possible violence from both sides of the ideological divide.…..

Given that the "loud and proud" members of each of the wings of politics have proven themselves to be inclined to misbehave when they don't get their way I fully expect there to be riots. Trump loses and we'll see a remount of Jan 6th attempted. Biden loses and we'll see the summer of love 2.0 and many "mostly peaceful" protests attempted. Given how factional things have gotten in the last 6 odd years, I expect them to be worse, what with one side thinking "well, if we're going to be arrested anyway we might as well make it worth the trial" and the other thinking about what they got away with last time and wondering what else they can get away with.

We need to do something to head off right-wing violence in 2024.  We don't need a repeat of J6.

"Vote Trump, otherwise ..." sounds like a slogan King Blobfish might use.

This year is full of possibilities!...

Bad thing being,the entire world is in a volatile state presently.

2024 just feels like a bad time in history to me personally,can only have too many powder kegs sitting around for so long before one goes boom!...China,Russia, Israel,Southern border, fentanyl crisis and now election year in the US,the world has gone mad.

Hopefully a year from now I'll look at this post with a laugh and a shrug,just don't feel like things are going to be as funny a year from now.

What could generate a riot season? 

a) social media

b) media reports of rioting, prompting copycat events. 

Guess the solution is simple 😏

 

Btw don't confuse protests against Israeli actions with support for Hamas.  I don't personally know anyone who supports Israel.  And I personally know even less who support Hamas.

I fully expect there to be an assassination attempt on either Brandon or the Blobfish.

That's if one of the alphabets decided to assassinate them, I think it'll be one of the rabid followers of "the other one".

Can you image if someone on Team Trump, or someone affiliated loosely with Team Trump said that about Biden? The media would be losing it's collective mind. 
Of course, there's only one side of politics that has a track record for violence directed at the presidency and the political process in America, so I can understand the radio silence.

Just curious, if you "personally don't know anyone" who supports Israel, that's zero right? How can you know even less than zero who support Hamas?

On “The Resistance,” Olbermann insists that Trump is genuinely mentally ill.

This, i believe, is called Projection

Chicago would not seem to be an ideal candidate city for a convention if there was a concern about the appearance of unruly behavior and lack of control.  Trump should tell his supporters to stay miles and miles away from downtown to mitigate blame for the inevitable violence, and would be smart to preempt the surely 100% authentic MAGA people who will be there, clean-shaven and with shades and khaki shorts.

Perhaps she’s engaging in hyperbole?

It seems likely.

Trump is already using selective language to hype his supporters up and cause division. He already has the red blue war ay new heights and it's only been a couple months. 

It also seems to be what his supporters want. They are talking about that more than political aspects and blaming the left already for what the right is invoking.

Maybe, was just a weird turn of phrase that clarification felt needed.

That's the point - I absolutely don't know anyone who supports Hamas

I think there are some in the Muslin community, but more so it is anti-Israel.
