I thought I was waiting for some cataclysmic event that would legitimately shake the country and make people realize “This is what we’ve come to”. It’d be massive national tragedy committed by a non-white, non-muslim lunatic driven by politics and nothing else; I wanted a big sign saying “This is where extremism gets you”
Firstly, a comment on the irony of Kaepernick being “surprised” over being benched after a historically awful performance, and STILL not bringing that list of solutions he promised back in August. About as effective in politics as in football, that one. The lack of self-awareness present in so-called activists will be a theme of the evening
One: If the protests continue now that we’ve gotten our first real look at Trump post-election, that’s entirely on them. There needs to be an end goal, I think “it’s good that they’re excercising their 1A right” only goes so far. Sooner or later, you’re a distraction at best and severely damaging to your cause at worst. 4 years from now, Republicans can and will point to this and ask if “this is the kind of people” you want running our country?
Two questions and a realization of the freedom Clinton’s loss gives gun owners to be the solution.
First, questions about the protests
Do they know/care what they’re obstructing over the last few days and potentially the coming weeks? People trying to get to work, pick up/drop off kids at school, how bout blocking emergency personnel or costing taxpayers more to pay police? I wouldn’t strictly have an issue with this if there was an end goal, but there isn’t. It’s about expressing yourself, cool, but you’ve been national news on every single network for four days. Ya done been heard.
