    This country can't take 4 more years of this. For the love of God just vote for Biden.

    I went to the protest yesterday afternoon where I am in upstate NY right now. At the end of the speeches and before the march they said "anyone white people want to talk?". Two people did. The first was a mother of adopted black children and it was great. The second was a middle aged women who took the mic and starting talking about how we all need to vote for Democrats and Joe Biden. It was the only time there were some boos. I booed myself. Electoral politics are merely fixing the deepest issues. Democrats haven't earned many people's votes. They have proven they are not saviors.

    But Trump is Trump and the first step has to be getting him out of office. Covid hasn't done it so voting will. I understand the importance of it but we gotta stop pretending like "just vote" is even close to enough.

    This isn't really directed at you because I know you aren't that type of Lib, but those types of Libs need to see the light. If you think being politically involved is telling people to vote for Biden you aren't helping. People need to be doing more or stop pretending.

    I donít disagree. I just believe this country is only hanging on by a thread and that the clear and present danger to the country needs to be removed from the White House. I voted Bernie, but he didnít win and now itís Biden or 4 more years of Trump. Iím not telling people not to protest or whatever. I just donít think if Trump wins again there will be another chance for the left electorally. We will lose our status as a first world democracy. Worst case scenario, prominent progressives will be ďfalling off balconiesĒ at an alarming rate.

    These protests represent a much wider range of anger and frustration.
    You think so? I think when the cops are busy some people steal **** and burn ****. Every generation has had roits. I think all this talk off extremists is probably WAY over blown.

    You'd much rather a president who tear gases US citizens who are peacefully protesting all so he can hold up a Bible for a photo op in front of a church that wants nothing to do with him?

    Antifa is in no way a terrorist organization.

    Either was the Black Panthers but the government and US media made it seem otherwise lol.

    the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
    this describes Antifa. you don't have to like it but it fits.

    this would and should go for any people whether they are a group or not including KKK, Black Panthers, and anyone else that wants violence.

    Did Obama ever use tear gas on his own citizens all for a photo op with a Bible?

    Should fascists be considered terrorists?
