Federal agents fire tear gas at protesters blocking ICE from detaining immigrants in unmarked cars

“While ICE respects the right of people to voice their opinion peacefully, that does not include illegally interfering with federal law enforcement duties,” Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security, said in a statement.
Nonviolent protest =/= peaceful protest, therefore nonviolent protest = violent protest.

I'm moving to Eastasia.

The best play is to figure out how to get the different police agencies to start shooting at each other. Maybe Putin can figure out how to turn them on each other. Misinformation, infiltration, instigators- I cant think of any other way this gestapo **** stops.

Scientists uneasy as Russia approves 1st coronavirus vaccine

If Russia's COVID vaccine is proven to work, will Russia be accepted back into the G7?

They're scared of protestors in their area because a Target got looted weeks ago somewhere else.

These counterprotestors are people in Chicago who pushed back against the protestors moving into the Englewood neighborhood, we're not talking about a 'Target looting weeks ago somewhere else'.

I'm sure you're aware of what's been happening in Chicago recently - from a Newsweek article:

Quote:
Widespread rioting and looting erupted on the streets of Chicago after people clashed with police over an officer-involved shooting the previous day.

Hundreds of people were seen ransacking businesses during a period of unrest which lasted several hours across the city from late Sunday into Monday morning.

Dozens of stores were looted along the "Magnificent Mile" shopping district, as well as other areas of Chicago.

Footage appearing on social media showed officers pelted with objects and people breaking into banks by smashing windows with baseball bats.

The violence saw the parts of the city essentially shut down, with the Chicago Transit Authority suspending all train and bus services to the downtown area at the request of public safety officials.
It's not exactly looting alone that the counterprotestors are trying to avoid, as the guy said in the original article:

Quote:
“None of these motherf—ers are gonna be here tomorrow. That’s why I got a problem,” lifelong Englewood resident Duane Kidd, 42, told the Sun-Times.

“If they would’ve gotten something incited with the police, who’s gotta deal with it tomorrow? The community. Not them.

“They’ll be somewhere sipping sangria somewhere. I’m telling you like it is.”

The dollar reigning supreme is a social construct. As our debt becomes more and more unpayable and our social status in the world collapses the dollar can hyperinflate and collapse. It seems impossible now because there’s so much wealth globally tied to the dollar but the world having to take the global hit could and probably will be unavoidable. Especially with China clawing its way back on top.

*Kicks protesters out of neighbourhood*

"See the thing that I can't stand is that they don't stick around!"

P.s. the only reason that a strip being robbed amidst chaos incited by police and bad faith actors is being deemed widespread is because it marks a trend in a narrative that's being pushed to discredit the BLM movement.

So he acknowledges the problem with the police but would rather push back against the people who aren't armed? Sounds like someone who's taking his frustrations out on the easier target cause he knows he doesn't have the spine to stand up to the real enemy.
