On the one hand Conservatives bemoan and condemn what they call “riots” such as the ones in #Ferguson and on the other hand they insist they need an armed populace in case they need to overthrow tyranny and oppression.
1) They act like its unthinkable to assault a cop, but who do they think they’re going to have to aim those guns at if the time comes? Do they think Harry Reid will be on the front lines?
2) What do they think the experience of a Black American is? If conservatives were treated anything like the majority of Black Americans are treated, and conservatives were true to their ‘overthrow oppressors’ word, it would be civil fucking war.
But law enforcement would never treat white Americans like they’re treating the citizens of Ferguson, even if they broke federal law for decades and held an armed insurrection. Know how I know? Because it happened, earlier this year. Remember Cliven Bundy? He’d been ripping off the government for 20 years and when they finally showed up at his door, people aimed guns at them. At federal officers, who just left.
Can you imagine the bloodshed if citizens of Ferguson aimed firearms at the stormtroopers currently stomping on their throats?
You don’t believe in it — you either understand it or you don’t
Shame on you, all other media. A website full of “cats who just can’t today” are journalism-ing better than all of you.
I’m actually really glad to hear that, although I’m kinda pissed I reblogged the story without checking it. Thanks for looking out.
I WAS WRONG PEOPLE, MARK YOUR CALENDARS. IT’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY, THERE’S A FIRST FOR EVERYTHING.
Now to continue the blog in the usual manner, wherein nothing could possiblie go wrong.
Edit: I mean, possibly go wrong. That’s the first thing that’s gone wrong.
"A North Carolina restaurant dropped its discount for "praying in public" after an atheist group informed the establishment that such a practice is illegal."
Folks, this is why being open about atheism matters and why talking about atheism makes a difference. A million blog posts accusing atheists of being just mean-spirited secularism-police is worth enduring to see someone check theirs Christian privilege.
