Protesting is not a threat, that is a straight up right-wing talking point.

Correct. The fact that they are AT his house isn't really the problem. I was referring specifically to the signs/slogans which (supposedly) went "We know where you sleep". That's kind of unambiguous (if true).

Of course that's clearly not what the cops are on about; they just wanna shut it all down and beat on some libs. Having a different political view is a Hate Crime? Hahaha OMG those fucking shits are seriously gonna try that? Oh, they're cops - of course they are.

Even those signs aren't a threat. Protesters are absolutely correct to let the people protesting know that as long as they are abhorrent, they will be met with resistance. Until they actually threaten violence, or until there's a trend of left wing political violence, it is just some Fox News-ass scaremongering to say they're threatening anything.

Because real threats are explicit or reference the actual violence happening regularly in our country. Real threats are what Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford still faces and it is straight up equivocating bullshit to compare peaceful protests to those actions. It's the same garbage as saying Maxine Waters encouraged violence when she encouraged continued protest: if you equare protest to violence (or threat there of), you are threatening the right to protest.

Get that shit outta here. "We know where you live" means "no justice, no sleep."

I think we're just kind of arguing over a detail. We both think the protests are in general legit and neither of us is equating "protest" with "violence".

I specified "signs/slogans", which are a single particular detail. It's right there in the post above.

Come on man.

The (if true) part is key, isn't it? There's talk of "Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night." being chanted, but that talk is on sites alongside words like "pampered decadent so-called anti-fascists", and apparently it's the worst they could dig up. The actual protest group meanwhile, has been immediately de-platformed by those companies that took so, so long to do the same to unapologetic Nazis, so that's all a big pile of hmm.gif

If that is a slogan they decided to run with, that's dumb as rocks. Don't hand free ammo to your opposition.

The 'right' makes some judgements about the 'left' tactics that are perfectly reasonable, except when presented in the context of their own rhetoric.

Now can we just post that for every story to come up in this thread before moral semantics makes Noro quit again?

Yeah, I mean, we don't even know if that shit's completely made up, which it very well could be.

Point is that the standards are of course laughably uneven here. Left wing says the smallest thing and they get trampled by cops (or hunted down and executed one by one by a bunch of self-appointed Judge Dredds, Jesus Christ that story's STILL not mainstream news).

The idea of "ammo" is irrelevant. If you present them with nothing, they'll make things up. There's no such thing as optics anymore, when your opposition gets to write whatever they want as the official version.

There's only going hard enough to get results.
