All I see are a pack of rabid animals descending on a single person.

Not trying to make an argument, but simply someone who lived life and didn't do it by gooogle quoting websites. Still amounts to talent and applying it. Without a whole lot of talent or coaching n practice, the average person with a pistol fails horribly. Not even going to explain how I know.

I hate to slow down the fear porn circle jerk, but it's going to get cold soon.

So.... yeah.....


Next spring though, look out. POTUS Trump will have enraged them.

We came out on top due to technology point blank. If it were our m4 against their AK and numbers, no tech we would be cooked.

Do I?

I wasn't aware that pointing out that the nature of the thing taking place in the streets changed from protest to riot was generalizing a group of people.

I did not say they were all rioters or all protesters. I said after the action becomes a riot, it looks bad for any protesters who remain the same way it looks bad for a kid to hang out with a group of known addicts even if the kid in question never uses.


Bringing to mind, Ket.. a painful memory of all those good,
progressive and well-meaning young Democrats that joined
up in Chicago and elsewhere to become the Students For a
Democratic Society. It was almost a whole lifetime ago...

I know of a very well educated, astute and informed man
who took his calling overseas after a splinter group called
the Weathermen started raising some real hell... and got the
whole SDS movement capsized if not politically destroyed.

He's been warning us almost forever about the siren's song
of political reform; masking almost certain, massive sabotage.
We the people are the machine to be dismantled by confusion
and ignorance. That man is still Webster Griffin Tarpley, PhD...
although America in it's state of decay may not outlive him.

Right.......training had nothing to do with it......

Well then.....why do we have so much combat training in the military? Odd that.....

It was mine. It was a word of caution.

I edited it out and just said that idiots should meet, and that I hope these young men in the video die.

Challenge? You do realize that blacks are about 14% of the population with about 4% being combat ready...right?

Compared to the huge swaths of hispanics asians, and whites....and others....

Race wars...pfft. More like massacre of every racist black person...

Nope. Just stop your young men from making the dreams come true for elites and racists everywhere.

How about that?

This is why I carry daily. Each one of these thugs would have been shot if that was me.

Ouch! Isn't that going too far in the other direction?

Is that what carrying is all about, just shooting people down if they take a run at you or beat on you?

What is America, the wild west?

You got a lot of stars for that comment. I get the outrage, don't get me wrong, but killing people, that's a whole other ballgame.

People, don't let the bad make you even worse!

its one thing to get into a physical altercation with one person, its another if youre being approached by multiple people....

Honestly it goes from physical injury to possibility of death......and you have a right to protect your life...

If youve got more than one guy beating on you its not a back massage, yes by all means stop the threat.......

I cant help but think that people who dont get this are prime targets for people like the ones who beat that man in the video......

I do know this, if he had been carrying, and managed to get a shot off, those folks would have scattered like roaches when the lights come on.

If ever I would want to put words into that matured Bonesman's
mouth, just once.. per Harry Julian Fink (f'n GENIUS) for the
Inspector for the SFPD Homicide Squad, one Harry Callahan:

"Maybe nothing can say the opposite of 'I love you' quite as
well and quickly as a couple, three feet of muzzle flash."

Agreed the latrine needs policing; and in no small manner sir.
And for scattering-- I believe some of the more brash would
tarry to their vastly increased peril. Damn, I'm not good

I dont think you can call this a race war, its a few stupid kids. I dont believe the vast majority of black people would condone this behavior. These are just a group of ignorant thugs beating up someone defenseless. Bullies always pick those who wont fight back. To be sure its a horrific incident, but I dont think a race war has started.


Right on! Listen, just a middle class older white guy livng in middle class white la la land. Hell, don't even lock my doors. No need to. Avoid the bad areas and life is good. Probably more people like me than not. Hell, watch it n TV. Some white person throw the first stone, and I'll make some popcorn. May even stay up a half an hour past my normal bed time. Waiting....... make it quick, gotta pee.

So assume multiple people descend on you with a chance to want to assault you. How many people to one does it have to be to justify using a firearm? I'm curious. I've been confronted 2:1, 5:1, and up to 15:1 including being followed at times.

I hear you.

But if everyone starts shooting, then well, you're better off to shoot first, and see there's the problem with carrying, particularly if emotions are running high. Furthermore, having the gun on you means that you cannot lose it, so you'll have to use it and shoot them all down.

I think you're wrong, ultimately, and the problem is too many guns.

Some day though someone will start shooting, and that'll be bad.

Imagine if you will, someone who's filled with rage and violence in their heart who goes out hoping TO get singled out and beat on, just to have an excuse to shoot down some racists blacks.

All that said, what that pack of losers did to that man was just terrible. That's the worst aspects of human nature.

I just don't want people to start getting so outraged that something like murder might burn in their heart, which would be taking things up a notch to the next level of depravity and evil, if you stop to really think about it..

One thing is for sure, those white girls protesting are in no danger of being dragged, they weigh like 50 pounds, everyone of them.

Rarely is anyone completely dispassionate about such a topic but people can remain objective while simultaneously holding opinions. We can both agree that we view slavery is evil while being cognizant of historical context. Thank you for explaining (and I also read back a little bit) but I'm just not sure I buy your argument that the there is a signficant lack of objectivity in the teaching of American history regarding slavery.

Either that or I was extremely fortunate to receive unusually good history instruction at public schools in the rural South.

What I do believe is that there is a significant level of ignorance regarding the topic but that's true of quite a lot of history. That problem is exacerbated by agenda-driven disinformation about history that people are exposed to later in life.

I do agree that emotion certainly interferes with objectivity — that's a given — I guess I simply believe that it's a bigger problem later in people's lives as they're more likely to fall victim to things like confirmation bias. The best way to mitigate that problem is for people to further their own education. That said, it seems unlikely that most people would ever be bothered to invest the time when they're content to watch a YouTube video, read a short social media post, etc that doesn't challenge their beliefs and incorporate myth and disinformation that reinforces their existing worldview.

Look at this thread. How many of the posters are going off half-cocked, so emotionally triggered by this video of a single incident that they're making irrational statments and all but calling for a race war? That's not any more rational than the people in the video attacking that man for being white if that's in fact what happened. (not saying it isn't, I'm just leery of viral Internet videos lacking any provenance)

How can you be oblivious to the irony of your avatar as you continue to do your best to stir up racial animosity?

What if he called them all the N word? What should they have done then?? (curious to your view)


So what if he did? That makes him an ignorant , bigoted bastard.......

That doesnt mean you get to drag and beat someone just because they offend you.....
if thats the case then would you advocate dragging and beating BLM protesters
who chanted racial slurs? Where the hell has common sense gone?


If common sense has been reduced to inadequate, but acceptable
words, my man.. three four letter words in a row will suffice..
THEY WENT AWAY. So has our sanity. It shows, in the majority's
basic inability to recognize it's real enemy.
