This whole series of 2020 exercises in fascism of the loudest majority is just the tip of the spear.

The Covid-19 Virus is guilty of Systemic Racism?


Funny you brought that up...


Black People Are Dying From COVID-19 at Higher Rates Because Racism Is a Preexisting Condition


And here is why...




“This disease,” she says, “is not an equal-opportunity disease.” Black people are contracting the coronavirus and dying from the disease at higher rates than other people. This disproportionate effect is a social issue in the guise of an epidemiological one. Black Americans, particularly in the Southern states that have not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, are more likely to be uninsured. They’re more likely to work a low-paying job. They’re more likely to suffer from heart disease, asthma, cancer, and other conditions, not—as Jones takes pains to emphasize—because of biology. It’s because of straightforward social choices such as where toxic dumps get sited, where new highways get built, and where Black people have historically been permitted to live.


Mother Jones Article

So yes, racism in America causes more black people to die of the disease then any other race.

According to the left.

I need a drink.... brb.

Where does racism come into play for the black store owners that had their stored looted and destroyed by other blacks, and the black owners/security that were beat and killed by other blacks who wanted to loot?


When the protests start for David Dorn I'm gearing up and going out.

Not because of racism.

For justice.

Racism caused the need for protests.

Protests caused the rise in Covid-19 deaths (assuming that happens)

So Racism caused the rise in Covid-19 deaths.




Police brutality caused the protests. The protests haven't been linked to a rise in covid. Its a bit of a jump in logic.


Maybe not at this moment but a lot of states are looking at it. Texas is reporting a sharp increase since the protests started. Two of Texas' biggest cities are reporting an uptick in COVID-19 cases over the past several days as concerns mount over how protests sparked by the death of George Floyd may be increasing the spread of the virus. Other states' cases are also rising sharply and they're looking at the protests as the cause for those as well.

Can anyone anywhere show me any proof WHATSOEVER that there was any racial motivation behind the murder of George Floyd? 


It's not racism, that was an asshole cop that shouldn't have been on the force that killed Mr. Floyd.

The propoganda outlets are having a field day winding up the plebs and as far as protesting in the middle of a pandemic well all I can say about that is stupid is stupid does.


I cannot disagree with you at all.

If I was a jurist and the only evidence was that video I have seen, then I would be quite comfortable with voting for Murder in the 2nd, regardless of Floyd's background, toxicity levels or underlying conditions.

My beef and the reason I started this OP is that not only is there no evidence of racism being involved, but mayors and governors and Democratic leadership in these cities who would have no problem a week ago arresting people attending a funeral, going to church services or opening up their businesses are now saying that the protesting, the rioting and the looting is now not only quite fine, but if there is an uptick of the virus after then that's a risk they are willing to take.

Not that they personally are taking the risk at all.

So black lives matter.

Unless they are just sacrificed for political gain.

The motives behind these people just keep getting clearer and clearer...

There's reports out there (and an ATS thread) about a letter that was signed off on by 1200+ "public health professionals" basically justifying the Floyd protests as a lower risk for COVID spread than racism ... but warning that protests against government overreach were still to be controlled.

This dumbass is dovetailing with that narrative, so the connection is running deep into that side of the narrative.

Of course, both points of view are completely illogical and not based on even basic medical science. A virus is a virus is a virus ... if it's going to spread, it doesn't care who spreads it or what their politics are.

As to your racism question ... well, who can say. Floyd's death has been ruled a homocide.

"Let's be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don't blame the protesters," Levine tweeted. "Blame racism."


Who will these idiots blame if there's a spike in crime in their cities, once they defund and disband the police in favor of a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach capacity?”

Ummm...my...my...my...my...my...my...how thee doth twist and spin...

Your like a leaf...blown on the breath of the piper..

There was no...need...for the protests...and none of them were spontaneous...cause I’m sure there are always pallets of bricks and other weapons...staged...for all peaceful...spontaneous protests...am I right...?

So glad to see you buy into this second phase of manufactured racism rage...after the viral first phase...and the meager protests that engendered...

I always find it amazing...the justifications some minds project when they swallow false narrative...and regurgitate the imagery that agenda choreographed...

Don’t forget to mention how you kneel in solidarity...

Kneel...in solidarity...

Can it get any more blatant than that...?

I think thats a natural thing to happen. But to preemptively say it and attribute it to racism is kinda dumb. They're building a new narrative. It's another thing to drive the divide. Just ignore it.

Permitted? I really want to hear about these neighborhoods in 2020 with "No Blacks Allowed" signs. Where is this going on?

I was following your posts on what you thought about that report in the other thread and am in entire agreement with you.

I spent a little bit of time also trying to find that report on anything before it was on that google drive account.

Seems a little... off.

Yeah. There's several problems with it.

BUT ... the "message" dovetails with what you've found here.

And both are ludicrous from an actual "public health" perspective.

Curiouser.

They will be quite comfortable with blaming Trump on it.

Even though they caused it.

Let's face it... at the end of the day the more chaos that America is in come November, the better chance they have to install whomever they are going to pick for the Presidential nominee come the DNC convention.

This is all a grab for political power BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Who cares how many lives are lost?

My wife was just watching an interview where a BLM spokesman flat out said "There is no black on black crime".

She said it with a straight face... she honestly believes that.

The Democratic party needs burnt to the ground and rebuilt.

The same with the Republican party.

We need to get back to talking about the differences in ideology between liberals and conservatives and libertarians and socialists and vote accordingly.

Not some stupid struggle between Progressive(R) and Progressive(D).

We need a balance of power in America between the different ideologies.

Not a hate-fest that keeps us divided for their own personal power by just invoking all the -ism cards whenever they need to.

The left shows their blatant racism by pointing out that the black community is trapped in Democratically-controlled neighborhoods (calling them "communities" right now would be a lie) and trying to say that only THEY can save them from that.

So they are assuming that black people are too stupid and disadvantaged to do it themselves, so they need a "Woke" group of white people to help drag them out of poverty.

Just how derogatory to black Americans is THAT, exactly?

You cannot blame it on Racism if Corona goes wild again. The protesters are all colors but they share one mentality, they do not care about the people with compromised immune systems and the elderly people. There is no way that this virus is not being spread there, it is from the protestors, many are not wearing masks and others are yelling which means they should be at least twelve feet apart, not two feet apart.

Why is the death of Floyd considered to be racism, that cop might have done the same to any one who was resisting arrest. We do not know what was going on in the cops head, all we know is he murdered the guy. Now the young guy out for a jog that got shot by those two people who tracked him down for looking in a house that was under construction, that would be racial profiling that caused that to occur. I can see that one being definitely race related. We do not know for sure that Floyd's death had to do with race.

When I want to get a riot started, I prefer Crowds on Demand.

Crowds On Demand

Then just Facebook message my local ANTIFA scumbags and fill them in on the details.



ETA... due to the progression of pre-planning the lootings, I have not yet checked into the logistics of having pallets of bricks delivered at night with no lading ticket.

I'll work on that.
