I agree that's it an unsettling trend, but it's not just the folks on the right itching for violence.

Not sure how, but we need to unite as Americans and stop this left/right, black/white blame game.


I can agree with that.

why weren't we saying this earlier though. that's my question. like earlier events, that begged us to unite... is it peculiar that 'now' , considering the predicaments, we need to unite.

Soros's useful idiots are really pushing it aren't they?

Nothing like claiming to be peaceful while intruding on others trying to enjoy an event meant to have fun aye?

Their days are numbered........




c'mon...a lot of you on the right are just itching for a gun battle between blacks and whites....


Itching for violence?

Only if you think that warning a drunk that driving is likely going to lead to bad things is similarly itching for a car wreck.

No one wants violence, but we HAVE been warning that the types of behaviors engaged in are leading us down a dark path likely to end up in a very bad place.

News from Chicago....

Reports say that protesters will attempt to shut down the "Taste of Chicago" event today.

They say this will start at 4pm (Central time).

And the theme is apparently economic.

"No justice, no revenue"


Chicago Protesters Will Try To ‘Shut Down’ The Taste Of Chicago Today


Following the events in Dallas, police departments across the country are on high alert.

Chicago police must think about how they approach the next local protest, which is expected later today.

Demonstrators say they plan to “shut down” the Taste of Chicago.

The larger of at least two protests planned for today will try to disrupt the Grant Park event. On Facebook, more than 600 people committed to demonstrating around 4 p.m.

If you’ve been to the Taste before, you know how large the crowds can get on a weekend afternoon and evening. Throw in protesters, hundreds of them, it will likely be chaotic.




I hope there is a bonfire.

Protesters: Let's ruin everyone's day. Husbands, wives, children...all of them...let's ruin their day. M-F work and looking forward to some fun on the weekend....let's stomp that right into the ground.

Those stands and kiosks should be much easier to loot and burn than a 7-11.


LOL !!!!

I swear the police across the country should have a 'flu' day and remind people what life is like without them for a day.

This crap just doesn't end.

I wish we had the luxury of creating a walled off place and offering to let everyone who thinks this is an awful place go there to start their own place under their own rules whatever they can make of it.

Let them stew in their own juices.

The story seems to be very careful to not mention who is doing the protesting, whether it is BLM or someone else. Maybe they haven't decided yet who they want to blame when the riot happens?

That seems to be an unsettling trend that has become more noticeable.


Yeah, this thread is obviously about white people wanting to kill blacks instead of blacks wanting to stop people who have done nothing to them from having a good time. Makes sense.

Why are they not going to the gang banger parts of Chicago and protesting black on black violence if they really cared about BLM?

Come on Ket, the chefs are not specifically being unjust. It is the ' business as usual ' that they are fighting against. They blame the economic system that ignores the plight of those who fall to the side in it's dog eat dog paradigm. I can understand that. Just like many conservatives who hate the government so much that rather than fix it, would rather see it all crumble and then start over, these people fight against the whole business community to disrupt that 'business as usual mentality. Again, I can understand while not agreeing with it. Can you understand the difference?

Foods not as good there...and they might get shot by gang bangers.

In other words, you think that because I want to pare the government down to its base rootstock in order to save it, I ought to understand the impulse to destroy the entire economy AND government to institute socialism?

That's basically what they think they want.

They resent what these people have done and are doing because they can't take any of it, so they are destroying it if they can.

I think there are Americans very united. At least 30% They provide for their families. Pay into the system, not live off it. WORK directly through food banks, homeless shelters, mission trips. Americans trying to better their families and communities by being PRODUCTIVE!

Right? lets not stop the majority of black deaths and concentrate on a couple that happen by cops every now and then. People are just mindless idiots.

Are you of the branch of conservatism that wants to take out the whole government to start over? Did I suggest that you are? No, I did not. I said 'many conservatives " Somehow you conflated this statement into ALL conservatives. I did not say All conservatives, I said many.

Likewise when I said

these people fight against the whole business community to disrupt that 'business as usual mentality. Again, I can understand while not agreeing with it. Can you understand the difference?


I was saying that I could understand it. I was not asking YOU to understand it at all. I would not presume that you would. If you read my last sentence again you will see that what I said was " I can understand while not agreeing with it. Can you understand the difference? " What I was asking you here was, can you understand how I might be able to understand their motives without, here let me repeat this one more time, WITHOUT agreeing with it?
Understanding does not equal agreement.

This is when it changes from protest to criminal activity. The moment protest changes to denying others their Rights, it's no longer protest IMO.

ETA: Peaceful protest however has my complete support.
