So now they caved and cancelled LIVE PD. This was the only 'show' I watched on TV.

No doubt, they had some overly WOKE sponsors/advertisers who said they could not be part of it any more. Corporate short-sighted Fools.... they have no idea the audience they are BETRAYING. I wanna see Live-PD Seattle when they clear out the CHAZ and everyone sees what a shit-hole it became.

What's interesting to me is that it seems they, the WOKE anarchists, are not letting media people into the area to see how they're doing. That could be a strategic move, hiding their defenses from the police/National Guard, or could be that the mayhem has already gotten so far out of hand that the whole area is trash.

LMAO.....

The latest country is the nation of C.H.A.Z.

An unelected monarch rules Chaz with an iron fist. Walls are built, a security force guards its borders, thugs of the regime beat its citizens, taxes are levied against the businesses, free speech does not exist.

Glad to see our stable genius finally identified who the 'enemy' is:

Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?

What We Believe
Four years ago, what is now known as the Black Lives Matter Global Network began to organize. It started out as a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission was to build local power and to intervene when violence was inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
In the years since, we’ve committed to struggling together and to imagining and creating a world free of anti-Blackness, where every Black person has the social, economic, and political power to thrive.
Black Lives Matter began as a call to action in response to state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. Our intention from the very beginning was to connect Black people from all over the world who have a shared desire for justice to act together in their communities. The impetus for that commitment was, and still is, the rampant and deliberate violence inflicted on us by the state.
Enraged by the death of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent acquittal of his killer, George Zimmerman, and inspired by the 31-day takeover of the Florida State Capitol by POWER U and the Dream Defenders, we took to the streets. A year later, we set out together on the Black Lives Matter Freedom Ride to Ferguson, in search of justice for Mike Brown and all of those who have been torn apart by state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. Forever changed, we returned home and began building the infrastructure for the Black Lives Matter Global Network, which, even in its infancy, has become a political home for many.
Ferguson helped to catalyze a movement to which we’ve all helped give life. Organizers who call this network home have ousted anti-Black politicians, won critical legislation to benefit Black lives, and changed the terms of the debate on Blackness around the world. Through movement and relationship building, we have also helped catalyze other movements and shifted culture with an eye toward the dangerous impacts of anti-Blackness.
These are the results of our collective efforts.
The Black Lives Matter Global Network is as powerful as it is because of our membership, our partners, our supporters, our staff, and you. Our continued commitment to liberation for all Black people means we are continuing the work of our ancestors and fighting for our collective freedom because it is our duty.
Every day, we recommit to healing ourselves and each other, and to co-creating alongside comrades, allies, and family a culture where each person feels seen, heard, and supported.
We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities.
We work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people.
We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.
We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.
We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world.
We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
We cultivate an intergenerational and communal network free from ageism. We believe that all people, regardless of age, show up with the capacity to lead and learn.
We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.

Honestly I did not imagine a this large of a reaction this soon. ( both sides )

As Bernie dropped out after the Pandemic and FED response - it was clear that social unrest will come in terms of "Occupy Wallstreet 2". Don't need to be a Bernie fan to know that.. this will be much bigger than the 2008-9 induced social unrest. History is full of lessons on this.. just look at the "Bonus Army" in 1932 ( at time when we sent the US Army w/Tanks against US vets... )

Also numerous examples around and after the 1918 pandemic of social unrest following WWI

yeah--- Trump frequently tweets stupid shit. He also tweets to troll the shit out of people <--- that shit is funny!

btw--- did you see the conspiracy theory behind that? Some bs on reddit or 4chan supposedly showing hollywood "special effects" tubing to pump a fake blood out of his head. Pretty stupid crap--- but someone always posts this shit. The question is--- do they actually believe it, or are they doing their own trolling? LOL--- I think it's more of the latter so they can giggle at the gullible...
