THE SPIRIT OF 1776 WILL RISE AGAIN!!! YEEEHAWWWW</p> </blockquote> <p>Gun violence still accounts for a teeny tiny percentage of deaths in the United States but please go on pretending it’s the biggest issue of our times.</p> </blockquote> <p>All countries have violence. Not all countries have mass shootings on the regular. It’s a big issue because it’s unique to us, not because it has the biggest body count. <br/><br/>The unique psychological impact of fearing the next school shooting when you’re trying to learn is a big issue. Children in schools shouldn’t be expecting to get  shot to death. We’re the only country in the developed world where that’s an ongoing fear. <br/><br/>(Also you didn’t address the fact that LARPing as if it’s 1776 is something grown ass adults have done to support their beliefs long before left-leaning people made harry potter references)</p> </blockquote> <p>I didn’t say anything about LARPing 1776 because I don’t give a shit about it. At least 1776 actually happened, unlike the battle of fucking Hogwarts. And whether people want to dress up or not changes nothing about the actual facts of the issue. America does not the highest rate of gun violence. Not even close. In fact we have the highest rate of gun ownership and yet do not have the highest rate of gun violence. If guns were really the problem, we should be the most violent nation in the world.</p> </blockquote> <p>Dodging the issue yet again. We’re the only developed country where kids go to school and are afraid of being shot to death in a mass shooting. That’s why it’s a big issue now. The March for Our Lives organized by the students for the students. <br/><br/>And of course if you take countries with lower standards of living, more corrupt criminal justice systems, less stable governments,  etc etc. you’re more likely to see gun violence there. That’s why the qualifier of developed is so important. We’re similar enough to developed countries that a comparison makes sense, and different enough in our relationship to guns that they’re a likely candidate for the determining variable. <br/><br/>And really? You don’t give a shit about it? So I take it you don’t believe we need guns for revolution? If you do that’s LARPing based on historical conditions that are no longer reality. </p> </blockquote> <p>Who are you to determine whether or not the need for revolution is a reality or that will never be one? To say nothing of the fact that that is only one of several reasons to own a gun. </p> <p>The only one dodging anything is you, pushing for fewer guns despite the fact that America has a remarkably low rate of gun violence when you compare it to the rate of gun ownership. There are 350 million guns in the United States. If this was really some kind of epidemic, we would be seeing deaths by the thousands on a daily basis. Yet all we have are a handful of highly publicized incidents. And any solution for keeping schools safer that isn’t “ban guns” is immediately shot down by these “March for our lives” kids, as evidenced by all the whining that went down when someone suggested clear backpacks or metal detectors. They don’t want a discussion of various “solutions”, there’s only one solution they’re looking for.</p> </blockquote> <p><i> &gt;The unique psychological impact of fearing the next school shooting when you’re trying to learn is a big issue. Children in schools shouldn’t be expecting to get shot to death.<br/></i><br/>I concur, because they’re at a much higher risk of shooting themselves. Statistically. <br/><br/><i>&gt;We’re the only country in the developed world where that’s an ongoing fear. <br/></i><br/>Fear is not, and never has been, the same as risk.<br/><br/><i>&gt;And of course if you take countries with lower standards of living, more corrupt criminal justice systems, less stable governments, etc etc. you’re more likely to see gun violence there.

We’re similar enough to developed countries that a comparison makes sense, and different enough in our relationship to guns that they’re a likely candidate for the determining variable. <br/></i><br/>If you <b>ignore all the other variables</b>, yes. Heck, you’re even cherry-picking mass shootings instead of overall violence. Or how most gun crime <b>isn’t with legal guns</b>.<br/></p></blockquote> <p>Holy shit they deactivated what did y’all do? 😂</p>

A Dream, America, and Apparently: kropotklndersurprise April 25 2015 Protesters take to the streets in Baltimore to express their anger over the Death of Freddie Gray, who was murdered by police. [videol thedaylleftthewomb Yup. Protesting against violence with more violence. Because that totally fucking works.I swear to god these protesters are fucking stupid half the damn time. tuth9 They should probably learn about Martin Luther King Jr. Read his "I have a dream" speech, in which he specifically says violence will not help. kropotklndersurprise Or maybe You should learn more about MLK than the one speech by him that they constantly repeat because it is nice and friendly and toothless? Letter from Birmingham Jail (ext) By Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., 16 April 1963 "First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." A RIOT IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNHEARD gluten-free-pussY Whites need to keep MLK's name out their mouths before they catch this fade knowledgeequalsblackpower They use MLK's memory so casually. It's so disgusting!!!! <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://siryouarebeingmocked.tumblr.com/post/149550947520">siryouarebeingmocked</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a>@kropotkindersurprise</a>, who apparently blocked me after <a href="http://siryouarebeingmocked.tumblr.com/post/139082422010/derpomatic-pardonmewhileipanic">this post</a>; <br/>Ironic that someone whose description brags that they post “riot gifs” and <b>endorses</b> violent <b>attacks </b>on people for <b>wrongthink</b> can’t handle online disagreement.

That would lead to anarchy. One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a <b>willingness to accept the penalty</b>. I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who <b>willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment</b> in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.</i></p> <p><i>&gt;You may well ask: “Why direct action? Why sit ins, marches and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” You are quite right in calling for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. <b>Nonviolent</b> direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the <b>nonviolent</b> resister may sound rather shocking. But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly <b>opposed violent tension</b>, but there is a type of <b>constructive, nonviolent tension</b> which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, so must we see the need for <b>nonviolent</b> gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that <b>will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.</b> The purpose of our direct action program is to create a situation so crisis packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation. I therefore concur with you in your call for negotiation. Too long has our beloved Southland been bogged down in a tragic effort to live in monologue rather than dialogue.</i></p> <p>&gt;.<i> My friends, I must say to you that we have not made a single gain in civil rights without determined legal and <b>nonviolent</b> pressure.</i></p> <p>-Letters from a Birmingham jail, MLK Jr.</p> <p>So the “<b>direct action</b>” he was talking about was, drumroll please, <b>nonviolent</b>. Specifically, non-violent. </p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="243" data-orig-width="400" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_o50s92RMxT1s9a9yjo1_400.gif"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_inline_p7h3lnI1Ug1rw09tq_540.gif" alt="" data-orig-height="243" data-orig-width="400" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/c7f9f1ddf249b15e79b86168389eff8d/tumblr_o50s92RMxT1s9a9yjo1_400.gif"/></figure><p>In fact, it’s almost as if you <b>deliberately quoted</b> one of the few parts of the letter where he <b>doesn’t</b> use the term <b>“non-violence”</b>.</p> <h2>Pop quiz, geniuses. If MLK was really endorsing riots, w<b>hy aren’t you talking about all the times he rioted</b>?</h2> <p>&gt;<i>There’s no doubt about that. <b>I will agree that there is a group in the Negro community advocating violence now</b>. I happen to feel that this group represents a numerical minority. Surveys have revealed this. The vast majority of Negroes still feel that the best way to deal with the dilemma that we face in this country is through <b>non-violent resistance</b>, and I don’t think this vocal group will be able to make a real dent in the Negro community in terms of swaying 22 million Negroes to this particular point of view. And I contend that the cry of “black power” is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we’ve got to see that <b>a riot is the language of the unheard</b>. And, what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the economic plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years.</i></p> <p>&gt;<i>[…]So that I would say that every summer we’re going to have this kind of vigorous protest. My hope is that it will be non-violent. I would hope that we can avoid riots because  <b>riots are self-defeating and socially destructive.</b></i></p> <p><a href="http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mlk-a-riot-is-the-language-of-the-unheard/">http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mlk-a-riot-is-the-language-of-the-unheard/</a></p> </blockquote>

Stop watching fox and read</p></blockquote> <p>You wouldn’t know a police state even if it came up and bit you on the ass.</p></blockquote> <p>Americans are 20 times more likely per capita to get killed by your police than the British are by our police. I dont disagree with you on many things, but getting killed 20 times more than a civilised nation means you have a brutal police force</p></blockquote> <figure data-orig-width="245" data-orig-height="260"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/75d05ef8efb085df71d4139168941552/tumblr_inline_npfnmuKhNh1r1jtxd_500.gif" alt="image" data-orig-width="245" data-orig-height="260"/></figure><p>That is a gross generalization and completely misinterprets the definition of an actual police state.  Even if police shootings were one hundred times more prevalent in the United States than Europe, that alone will never make this country a police state.  To say otherwise, is exhibiting a complete lack of understanding of the term.  Besides, when you talk about people getting killed by police, you immediately assume they were all innocent which is completely false <a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/117874602711/aceteron-postmemes-serve-and-protect-the">as I have mentioned before</a>.</p><p>When anti-police activists misuse the term <i>police state</i> to mean something derogatory about everyday police officers, it is essentially only watering down the original term.  It’s just like when SJWs throw around the word <i>slavery</i> to mean anything and everything oppressive - “mental slavery,” “reproductive slavery,” “slave wages,” etc.  It only dilutes the actual use of the word.</p><p>If you want to witness an actual police state, look no further than North Korea. Calling the United States, where thousands of people have fled to after escaping <i>actual</i> police states throughout history, is a slap in the face.</p></blockquote> <p>Sorry, but that defense is weak. It’s as if you expect a totalitarian monarchy before you’re willing to accept that it’s a police state. The problem here is obvious. One side waters it down, the other side only accepts the most radical version. Setting aside the fact that it’s not really a subjective term, and what you consider a police state and what I consider a police state may be imagined differently, but I’m certain we could come to some mild agreement about what it would entail. That being said, here is a list of things that all police states have in common:</p><p>1) Massive surveillance apparatus that spies on anyone and everyone without regard to the privacy or the rights of the individual. Check<br/>2) An agency or industry that can assault, kill, or lock you away for any reason and most likely get away with it. Check<br/>3) An agency or industry that dresses the part of the antagonist, wearing body armor and carrying heavy weaponry around mostly unarmed people. Check.<br/>4) A systemic view of police whereby “public guarding”, which happens to be an expectation of the average citizen, is set aside and police are turned into “law enforcement” agents who’s primary function is to issue citations or find a way to enroll the citizen into the state’s extortion scheme. Check.<br/>5) A rogue institution of policing around the country that involves portraying the citizen as the primary target, resulting in needless bullying by police. Check<br/>6) “A <strike>totalitarian</strike> society controlled by a political police force that secretly supervises the citizens’ activities.“ CHECK<br/></p><p>But your definition seems to require a totalitarian society, and that may be how it’s technically defined, but I don’t see it that way. I see it as a reactionary effect of people who live under the boot of police or live in a society where police have very little accountability. Who in their right mind could possibly deny that police are seen as an aggressor or antagonist? They don’t guard the public, nor should they have any claim to ‘self defense’ when they are the one pursuing the people in the first place. If I pursued and shot someone, I wouldn’t be able to claim self defense. But see, they’re not actually “police officers”. They are Law Enforcement and they are there on behalf of the government. As employees of the government, they cannot be there for your benefit. I feel a true conservative would view our law enforcement today as a severe encroachment onto our liberties. But the neo-con Republicans look at it like a blind allegiance or patriotic expression that police must be respected, loved and coddled, just like the military and the church. It’s absolutely disgusting.<br/></p></blockquote><p>I’m not watering anything down. I’ve acknowledged that there are some bad cops, although they are few and far between.  There are some cases of militarization of the police, but it’s not as rampant as some would allude.  I’m a realist.  I know where the actual blame lies in the majority of the bad attitudes against our police officers - it’s in our overabundance of constricting laws and our crumby criminal justice system; not the average cop that sticks his neck out on the line for you and me.</p><p>I’ll respond to a couple of your attributes of a “police state” though:</p><p>1) Arguably yes.  Although that’s what most of this recent disagreement regarding the Patriot Act was about.  Is it as restrictive as an actual police state though in which your every word or movement is questioned under possible detainment?  No.  No, it is not.  You actually have rights in America, including the Freedom of Speech.  Odds are, your local police officer would agree with your thoughts on protecting your Fourth Amendment rights and your right to privacy…considering they would apply to he/she as well.</p><p>2) False.  We have a justice system in which you have a right to defend yourself in a court of law.  The police and court system, as lousy as it is at times, must also respect your rights and obey the laws that protect the citizen.  In a real police state, the police (again, run directly by the state) are the judge and jury.  You have very few, if any, rights in a police state.  I’m not saying our system is perfect or that it doesn’t need reform; I’m merely stating it does not remotely resemble an actual police state.</p><p>3) “<i>Dresses the part of the antagonist</i>.” This is the silliest thing I’ve ever heard all day.  The majority of police officers look like this:</p><figure data-orig-width="450" data-orig-height="338" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/9905cd9e6cbcc81bd6adcc71503875cc/tumblr_inline_npfq8fBKtj1r1jtxd_540.jpg" data-orig-width="450" data-orig-height="338"/></figure><p>What you are trying to paint them as:</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="292" data-orig-width="450"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/ec19459810a7a0383186e4a0e5819339/tumblr_inline_npfqlvN5et1r1jtxd_540.jpg" data-orig-height="292" data-orig-width="450"/></figure><p>It’s all about wording.  And this is where anti-police activists (for the lack of a better term) just can’t help themselves to just take a step back and think objectively.  You clearly and cognitively see police as an “<i>antagonist</i>,” and that’s where you lose any credibility in your argument.  You’re projecting your own personal views to appear as facts, and that just doesn’t cut muster here.</p><p>Besides, having a militarized police body, still <i>does not</i> make a country a “police state.”  Need I remind everyone that the Gestapo worn plain clothes unlike the SS.</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="310" data-orig-width="450"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/dea446aed951f8d7b3075e3d892a180d/tumblr_inline_npfsw663Dg1r1jtxd_540.jpg" data-orig-height="310" data-orig-width="450"/></figure><p>4) You lost me on this one entirely.  Are you insinuating that police do not protect and serve the public?  If so, I’m sure I have some fine officers that would happily disagree with you.  Your still projecting this notion that police officers are just driving around harassing innocent people.  Look, I hate getting speeding tickets like the next guy, but let’s not lose focus of reality here.</p><p>5) Again, police are not bullying the average citizen across the country.  Where is your proof of this widespread targeting of innocent Americans?  Where does this stuff permeate into the collective minds of so many young people?  It’s simply not true.</p><p>6) We don’t have a totalitarian (or otherwise) society controlled by a “political police force.”  Of course you don’t think it has to involve a totalitarian state because you are basing your views on your own personal negativity bias.  You hate cops…<i>okay</i>, we get it.  Still not a police state though. </p></blockquote> <p>I am so over police haters cherry picking to make it seem like we live in the freaking Hunger Games.</p>
