What The Protests Are About ➶
Nick Drozd, commenting on Scott Aaronson’s blog:
I know that a lot of readers of this blog will see looting on the news and think “I support their right to protest, but this isn’t the right way to do it.” If you think that, I encourage you to watch the whole George Floyd murder video. Derek Chauvin had his knee on the neck of George Floyd for eight minutes. Eight minutes! That is a really long time. And you should watch it. All of it, the whole thing. Watch Floyd say “I can’t breathe. They’re gonna kill me.” Watch the moment when Floyd goes unconscious, then watch as Chauvin keeps choking him for another four minutes. It’s hard to say exactly, but you can probably even watch the instant of Floyd’s death.
Watch the whole thing, then come back and say the protesters need to be better behaved.
If you are a white guy and you think this kind of thing is of no concern to you, watch the Daniel Shaver execution video too. He was just some unarmed white guy, and a cop shot him even when he was no threat to anyone. The cop was acquitted of any wrongdoing.
People like Derek Chauvin and Bob Kroll are psychotic bullies, and they need to be stopped. Probably most readers of this blog are or have been nerds. Remember the kinds of mean bullies who would pick on you for no reason when you were a kid? This is how they turn out. They are violent, and they will kill you if they want to, and they will almost certainly get away with it.
That is what these protests are about.
In the meantime the Charlatan Divider is the bully in charge who wants to use the military to go out and “dominate” protesters.
The U.S. Congress (and Senate) should invoke the 25th amendment and remove him from office as he has clearly demonstrated time and again that he is incompetent and incapable of doing his job while actively attempting to subvert the Constitution of the United States for his own financial gain, and inspiring and encouraging hate and division especially by putting racist supremacists like Stephen Miller on his cabinet.
He should then be arrested and charged with aiding and abetting all the hate and murders he has incited using his Twitter feed and the cowards at the television networks who support him.
