What is the purpose of blocking a street/highway?

I already knew you (and others taking up a similar stance) would say that. Didn't I already say so?

More ad hominems, huh? Not getting enough posts removed?


a 240 year old document doesnt tell me whats right and whats wrong


Kind of sad that you do not even understand the function of the Constitution. It is not there to tell the private citizen what is right or wrong, it is there to limit the power and scope of government which includes the ability of the citizen to peaceably assemble and freely associate.

I think you should educate yourself on the topic as you are woefully ignorant when it comes to our rights as citizens.

Every single time black lives matters or some protest involving african americans is marching or protesting, they end up linking arms, and blocking a highway. What the hell good does this do? its the dumbest thing i have seen from these protesting groups.

Shooting people in cold blood is okay, though...


Do the ends justify the means? Because that is what it seems you are advocating with that reply...

Civil disobedience, look it up.

Haha, nice one!

Nope, I'm as white as they come and a father of four. I'm down with the ladies. Why, you looking for a date?

As "white as they come" what do you mean by that exactly?

No thanks.


I just don't censor myself based on the sensibilities of other people. You do?

I doubt you are being honest here. EVERYBODY censors themselves to some degree in different contexts.


Actually, I have been reprimanded very few times here. I still post what I like but I do so within the limits of T&Cs. Why? Did I post something that breaks them? Well, I'll just let staff handle that.

Major contradiction for the underlined part. (See, you do, to some degree, censor yourself otherwise you would be banned by now.)

Bitching and whining about the nature of the human animal to sometimes be full-blown idiots... is pretty much an exercise in futility.

Don't you think ?




You should try just grabbing yourself an ice cold beer, sit back, relax, and laugh your ass off watching all the bread and circuses happening around you each and every day.

It's a great way to avoid getting grey hair too early.

Worrying about hypotheticals has never resolved anything in life.

I'm curious who shat in your Cheerios this morning. I'm not going to debate semantics with you, sorry.

I mean that I'm of European descent, my ancestors are primarily Irish and Dutch, what the hell else could I have meant?

well, i have no hair left, im bald as hell. grey hair is coming.
im no asking for a resolution to anything. and in todays day and age, theres too much to worry about. i am scared for myself, this country and my children. we live in a time where mass shootings are occuring regularly. we live in a time where law enforcement and our politicians are corrupt and have hidden agendas. should i be scared?
hell yah i should be.
where i live, one of our biggest events was last weekend. and BLM decided to do a protest. did i bother going to the event? nope... why? because after seeing protests turn violent over the course of the last year, i am not going to be a statistic.

and for everyone else posting on this thread... if you see nothing wrong with a racist hate group blocking traffic and emergency vehicles from moving around.... and your only reason is because the constitution says they can, then you are part of the problem with america turning into a toilet of ignorance and hate.
we are devolving, we are going back to a time this country tried to get away from...
we all have the same blood. our dna isnt any different. i am a white 34 year old who has never said or thought one racist thing. yet i am told im racist because of my color. its assumed that i hate people other than people that look like myself.
its assumed that i feel i am better than someone. i have never done anything wrong in that aspect. i love my friends, family, neighbors. i love my country. and i do nto want to see it ruined over hate.
i condone BLM, KKK, or any supremacist group. nobody is better than anyone else. when we die, we all end up either burnt to ashes, or buried in the ground. what it says on your gravestone is up to you. how you are remembered and how you are forgotten.

civil disobedience
noun
the refusal to comply with certain laws considered unjust, as a peaceful form of political protest.

What law were BLM protesting again? What's unjust about allowing free access for people to get to their jobs which they rely on to make a living, or allowing ambulances transporting people in need of medical treatment through?

Or do the lives of BLM members take precedence over those of others? I guess some lives (BLM) are more equal than others...

I haven't eaten breakfast yet, it's only 7:20AM where I live.

This is not about debating semantics. It's about using stupid phrases like "I'm as white as they come" without properly defining them.

Good for you. How is going into your ancestry relevant to the topic at hand? I originally said you are probably not a white heterosexual male if you can freely state what you like without care of offending somebody.

No need to get defensive.

sorry i didnt attend harvard like yourself...


If you feel that a person needs to attend Harvard to understand the Constitution of the United States you should consider a civil suit against whichever school system you attended for their systemic failure to educate you.


...a 240 year old document does not tell me whats right and whats wrong.


Once again, that is not how it works.


...i fully understand the function of the constitution.


No, actually you do not if you think it is a list of 'rights and wrongs'.

The purpose of blocking a street, intersection anything is to get media attention.

MLK did that a bunch of times during the civil rights movement.

In this day and age, our media won't show us anything unless they absolutely have to. When a street or bridge or whatever is blocked at least it forces local media coverage of protest or marches.

A protest in a park or a field no matter how large, even if it's millions of people won't be reported in the news. Because our corporate overlords don't want that.

when did i say that the constitution says whats right and wrong? i didnt. i didnt even imply it.
i said it doesnt tell me whats right and wrong. can you read? or is your arrogance at such a high level, that your smugness prevents you from reading whats there, and it implants whatever you want.

BLM is a racist hate group, and I can't stand them, but right now they are about the same as the westborough babtist church...they spew nothing but hate, but that's their right. I don't believe any state should allow them to block highways, but that isn't up to me or ATS unless like august said, it's taken to the supreme court...

However, If BLM starts openly calling for the murder of whites and white cops etc, and then actually carry it out, which many think they have already done, they should be upgraded to a terrorist org and not be allowed to assemble anywhere besides behind bars.

a reply to: amazing

i understand the want or need to be televised... but is media attention their real motive? im sure 80% of america knows about BLM and what they are about.
i think it does mainly have to do with attention. the " look at me i matter" narrative comes to mind.

i think we all get it. we get what it looks like... black man killed by white cop. i get it. but to BLM its more than that. its we are sick of it. i just think the media pushes some of these police brutality issues way too hard before an investigation is done.

Exposure? At what cost?

Do the ends really justify the means?

Right. Stating that a '240 year old document does not tell me whats right and whats wrong' pretty much carries the implication that is what you think it is there for because it sure as hell was not me implying that.

Nice try at backpedalling though.

To aggravate innocent people which will lead to violence because they cant get to work and the black lives matter activists refuse to move. God forbid an ambulance gets caught on the road with a heart attack victim on the way to the hospital. In Texas people get arrested for that. Pedestrian in the roadway. Get the national guard out and put those people in jail.
