Your rioters ain't changing squat.
They are ENSURING the status quo stays in place.
They hijacked legitimate protest to steal tvs.
They are no more than illiterate cretins.
When it gets hard they will dissappear.
Rainstorms kicked their asses in dc
No violence or looting or arson there tho was there?
Your "systemic change" foiled by water falling out of the sky
Yes but the target of that violence wouldn't have been indiscriminate burning of cities and small businesses.
Personally, I don't believe much of the property destruction had anything to do with the cause of Black Lives Matter or the general protests against police brutality, except for maybe a few over turned/burned out police cars.
I got sucked into this pragmatic argument over the claim that the Founding Father would never destroy their neighbor's property. Private property most certainly was destroyed before and during the American Revolution, which at the time King George saw as a colonial insurrection. Before, during and after the Civil War, property damage, right or wrong, was key. When the US military goes to war, they bomb strategic buildings.
My point is that when We The People fight for a cause, not only does blood flow, but property is damaged.

It's ironic that the so called patriots who always warned it would go bad for the weak leftists if the chaos started are the ones hiding in their basements as the country burns.
What with this whole Covid 19 thing, and now this, I think we're going to see some systemic change whether we like it or not, for better or for worse.
I wish I could say that it's up to us, and that we're all in this together,
but, I don't really believe that.
