Interesting. So CRT says that black person's, Asians, and Indigenous people are also racist? Can you provide a quote from a CRT article that makes this claim?

I really DGAF about critical race theory.

Everyone is racist imho.
Just like say in high school, if you and all your friends have buzz cuts and you see a guy with a mullet, you will likely judge him in a derogatory way if you don't know him. Its human nature.

CRT seems to me to be aimed at explaining to white people that yes, they are racist. Is it perfect? probably not, nothing is but I don't know much about it.

I myself would prefer a more wholistic approach acknowledging the bias is an inmate human trait and that is why people with privledge and power over others should be aware of it and try to mitigate it.

I have been on record as a proponent of de-escalation. So much so, that i have advocated it as part of police reform.

Yes, I believe it should be part of the job of Police, to put themselves in harms way. That means only using force when you are absolutely sure there is no other way, even if it means you are at higher risk.

Dude, Howie isn’t interested in facts. Never has been. Never will be. He just knows.
It was sort of a rhetorical question, knowing that howie wouldn’t have an answer...unless it was another deflection.

Name 1 post that I have defended OANN? Just 1.
Did you read the tweet you attacked JTF for above? It was about OANN. Nice of you to defend them.

See 2 for face plant balm. He's selling it like hotcakes.

Never once have I suggested or even commented on MW’s dumbass statements having an impact on the trial. Never once - but hey, you do you STP.
So then why all of the concern? Why all of the faux outrage? Her comments had zero impact. No violence, no influence on the jury. Only thing it did was generate faux outrage by people that amongst other things either were silent or dismissive of an insurrection, etc., etc.

Can you read?

One America News Network (OANN) correspondent Jack Posobiec...


howie, it wasn’t a defense of Jack Poswhatshisface or OANN.

It was pointing out that JTF has used Aaron Rupar (a progressive lefty not frequently associated with reality) Tweets to make his point.

But I guess not knowing who Jack Poswhathisface proves that I have no idea what or who is on OANN.

I stopped reading here.
Elected official calls for violence. Violence happens. “no biggy”, “nothing to see here.”
That is where you made your mistake. Where was and is the violence?

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/confront

https://www.cps.gov.uk/legal-guidance/public-protests

The rest is open rhetorical comment.

The insistent and persistent calls for outrage are interesting. Perhaps it speaks to the assumption of malice toward some, and the assumption of good intentions toward others? That continues to be quite common.

SInce I ruffled some feathers by saying the chickens have come home to roost, I won't say that. I will say that, right or wrong, silence has laid the foundation for what is acceptable.

Look at you.
- Pretending that telling a group of protesters to “be more confrontational” is the same as telling someone to “confront” something.
- Pretending that shooting a gun at people isn’t violence.

Where did I say that gun violence is acceptable? It is not. When did Congressperson Waters shoot at someone? Were did she threaten to?

Is this a bit?
I didn’t say you said it was acceptable. I said you aren’t calling it violence since you said there was no violence. Get it now?

As for the rest of your gibberish - I never said she shot anyone or threatened to shoot anyone. Keep being an idiot and changing the subject - way better than admitting what a hypocrite you are. #Sheep

It’s a political argument, not a legal one,” Ken White, a First Amendment attorney and former federal prosecutor, said on Tuesday. “There’s no legal doctrine to quote. There’s no ‘You Did Something Like It, And Therefore It’s Fine’ doctrine that I’m aware of.”

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/04/22/clyburn-defends-pelosi-waters-over-chauvin-trial-484156

"As for Waters, Clyburn maintained that the congresswoman was merely echoing the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when she told protesters in the Minneapolis area on Saturday to “get more active” and “get more confrontational” should Chauvin be found not guilty."

Scrubbed version and scrubbed version:



Regarding the shooting you are linking to Congressperson Waters? Was the shooting the same day as the verdict? Assuming it was the same day and the verdict was guilty on all counts, shouldn't the shooter have stood back and stood by?

This was and is a very circular political argument. It was political from the beginning and yet another normalization attempt. I have no interest in continuing it.

Yes STP - your opinion is duly noted.
- You have no issue with what she said. Sad.
- You have determined the shooting afterwards could not have been related. Convenient.
- You have searched out internet stories to support your opinion. Original.
All duly noted.

More deflection. You don't seem very proud of your stance on this?
