    Myth. It's an oft-used defense of police using choke-holds and ridiculous on the face of it. One can still be able to talk even though they are not getting enough oxygen. It's a frequent complaint of people having a heart attack, which Floyd might have been and which excuses the cop of murder not at all, since what he was doing can readily induce one.

    Floyd was dead when the ambulance arrived and according to their later report he had been that way for some time, was he faking that?

    Everyone acknowledges that the policeman is guilty of murder in the Floyd case. However, Floyd did resist and refused to follow the orders of the police.

    You could not pay me enough to be a policeman. It is not worth being put in prison for trying to do your job or getting killed because you are reluctant to defend yourself.

    What you are seeing are post modernists attempting to amass power by deconstructing everything. They don't have a plan to replace fascism. They just want to be in control of the ruins they create when they tear everything apart.

    No, they recently tore down a statue of Columbus here in Baltimore and I'm against that. Columbus was definitely not kind to most of the indigenous people he found here but to say he was an oppressive colonialist is continuing the "Spanish Black Legend" and that is as bad as any other sort of historigraphical bias.

    Have I skipped the thread? What is this doing here?:confusion:

    The mob wants statues torn down and you defend the mob. Do you think tear gas is appropriate tactics to disperse a mob intent on tearing down a statue?

    Deconstruction died just a little after socialism, sometime in the mid 90's. It's not viable even as an artistic movement anymore. (Never really was actually, more something that even its proponents made fun of)

    No offense but you people need to keep up.

    I don't defend any such thing and I really object to your incorrect use of "the mob". Tear gas should be reserved for extreme situations where people are going to be hurt otherwise

    I stand by my definition of "mob" and by my definition you support the mob. Mobs always hurt somebody is the are not dispersed. See CHAZ.

    Really? They are destroying property. No matter whether it offends them or not. They have no right to tear down a statue. There are legal ways to do it. Tear gas is used to disperse crowds and generally has no permanent effects.

    Actually, BLM is a blessing in disguise. Covid19 has crushed the one thing trump had really going for him - economy and it could be argued he could’ve done better (as should’ve everyone else) but here comes his saviour - BLM.

    BLM couldn’t have come at a better time - riots, talks of defunding police, taking over city blocks via force (creating failed autonomous zones), crime skyrocketing (up 100% everywhere), statues being torn down (even of great african americans like Frederick douglas).

    so now trump can rally the silent majority against a racist, evil, marxist, violent and dangerous movement. BLM is getting trump elected!

    If a good samaritan flipped you off your helpless state on our back the situation could be different. Your blithering and lip-service patriotism might translate to activism.

    BLM is for peace, equality, and the right to justice. Donald Trump is the anti-christ of those ideals.

    Their actions speak otherwise, and so does your hateful rhetoric.

    Peace, equality, and justice ideals are hateful to you?

    Unlike you, I've never found arson, anarchy, looting, vandalizing, destruction, or desecration to be all that peaceful or judicial. If it's equal to anything, it's equal to evil.

    So you intend not to participate in those activities in the future?

    Only if it's raised high enough to drop on the protestors trying to take it.

    My local library doesn't have it. Nor does my entire State, my local library includes the Enoch Pratt, a world-class institution.

    This is a discussion board, we are here to discuss, not read whole books. If you don't understand it enough so that you can give a condensed version of that understanding in a post here, then you don't understand it yourself.

    It's a simple question. The leftists have the "moral high ground" already. Why would the leftists start riots that would make everyone turn against them? Wouldn't it be far more logical to suppose that right wing groups are secretly doing that and then blaming the leftists? Why can't or won't you answer that question?

    It's a low-cost paperback which will answer all your questions.

    And of course that explains the Facts behind the Lie known as BLM.
    Where Not a peep from this corrupted MSM or BLM protestors over
    how Youngin's { Black Kids } lost their lives in shoot outs by Black
    gang members.
    No can go there ... Huh.
    Talk about being Outted.No finer example of a Fraud than that.
    It'd be like catching a Carny Barker in his trailer explaining over
    a cheap pint of whisky how he does it.
    How he cons as many Carnival patrons as possible.
    Actually gets paid by the number of cons he pulls.

    You would evidently be happier if the shooters dressed in blue.
