I hope so.

D.C. Guard members, typically deployed to help after hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters, say they feel demoralized and exhausted. More than 60 percent are people of color, and one soldier said he and some fellow troops were so ashamed in taking part against the protests that they have kept it from family members.
“Typically, as the D.C. National Guard, we are viewed as the heroes,” said another soldier, First Lt. Malik Jenkins-Bey, 42, who was the acting commander of the 273rd Military Police Company during the first days of the protests. But last week was different, he said.
“It’s a very tough conversation to have when a soldier turns to me and they’re saying, ‘Hey sir, you know my cousin was up there yelling at me, that was my neighbor, my best friend from high school,’” said Lieutenant Jenkins-Bey, who is African-American.

If they had switched sides...

That’s everything

I wasn’t expecting it but I also wasn’t expecting it to be appropriated to another reinforcement of the status quo so easily. The government did a great job of arresting people instead of killing them and reclaiming the perception battle. Like it or not, Trump got his law and order. In the same way we said yes it’s ok for covid to kill as many people as it can the economic show must go on we also said yes to the continuation of the 400 year winning streak of white capitalism against brown liberation.

If George Floyd had been arrested peacefully his life would be just as ruined. What was he looking forward to? A life of slavish subservience to a power structure that never forgives. His death was brutal to watch but had it gone smoothly the suffocation would’ve lasted thirty more years.
How many bricks did you throw?

It's easy to volunteer other people to get their skulls cracked or get arrested for the sake of your revolutionary fantasy.

I'm not advocating anything, nice deflection though.

Bottom line is if you want a war so bad then do something about it instead of whining that the protests are too peaceful. It's very typical of larpy white online socialists that you just want minorites to do the dirty work of burning down their own neighborhoods so you can fap to a revolution that isn't actually happening.

Twitter has suspended more than 23,000 accounts it says were linked to the Chinese Communist Party and covertly spreading propaganda to undermine pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and counter criticism of Beijing’s handling of the novel coronavirus outbreak that grew to a global pandemic.
yet trump carries on constantly

Glad I never had an account - ****ing shameful.

They fact checked him once and he threw a temper tantrum threatening to write legislation about it.

Trump, not OH.
