    Medical care is life or death situation where that person could die if they donít get the care they need. Protesting police brutality which happens seldom didnít need to happen right during a pandemic

    Aww.. It really sounds like you're one of those people who only want protesters to make their voices heard in a way that makes you comfortable.

    Why does it matter? Why canít people protest and rally if they want? Why are you shutting down one but not the other? Personal freedom except for issues that arenít important?

    This has been explained a million times over.

    At this point you are equating trump rallies where he spews lies and conspiracyís to racial justice and stopping police brutality. They are one in the same it seems in your mind. Thatís a pretty disgusting outlook to continually equate the two.

    Gatherings generate risks that should be avoided when possible.
    You're suggesting those rallies were worth the risks, most don't believe that to be true.
    It's that simple.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    The fact that multiple pages of posts are needed to explain this is pretty sad.

    Why is it for you or any govt oficial to determine if it was worth the risk or not?

    Guess I should have posted what I just did here instead. I am fully vaccinated, but have had 8 family members (cousins and kids) contract COVID and eventually recover. An uncle and my mother-in-law died from it.

    I do have a point here. Pretty much all of them live in rural areas where the virus was initially considered a hoax and mask wearing a joke. Don't think masking up or taking other precautions have really caught on either. This, I believe, is a direct result of being in a deeply Republican state.

    Just hope those who have had it don't turn out to be "Long Haulers." Having life long issues with you brain, heart and/or nervous system seems a pretty high price to pay for subscribing to a fantasy filled political agenda.

    Itís a public risk but protesting police brutality is apparently worth potentially dying for.

    Interesting

I never denied that there was hypocricy from plenty on the topic either but not every poster on here is responsible for the crazies you can associate with them and many (like myself) also called out the protestors for BLM not social distancing etc. or for the ones without masks too. If the defense of one over the other is that one was for a massive issue that keeps reocurring and had just happened again leading to death then police waayyy overresponded to peaceful protestors on the topic and all hell broke loose compared to people riled up over lies/ a conspiracy theory? Then I think that context has a bit of merit, if they openly said you can't spread the virus for good causes that's different but my guess is you won't be quoting anyone on that any time soon.

    I disagree, there is a massive issue with police brutality, racial inequality and the police at the time specifically were going way over the top attacking peaceful protestors as well. That part was not absurd but the crazies you specifically seem to be referencing doing those things sure I would agree they were (again you won't quote that here that I remember).

    I am not sure what the last line is about but that ain't even that tall lol
    To be clear, I never blamed the whole of the left for the actions of the Karens and the Hypocrisy in the media, and I personally didn't have a problem with the protests (though I did criticize the riots that often happened alongside them)

    While police brutality is a problem, if we're going to be utilitarians about this, only around 250 Black People are killed by Cops every year, (that includes armed and unarmed, and cases of clear self-defense) if we only look at unarmed African Americans, that number drops to like 20 a year.
    And this virus has hit Black communities significantly harder there were likely more black people who died due to the spread of Covid from these events than from police killings this year.

    Does this mean that no one should protest...no...it doesn't. These people took the risks, understanding that a moment like this might not come along again.

    The last part was a reference to the post I was quoting.

    Do you believe those rallies were necessary?
    Biden won the election and had virtually none.

    Who made you the moral arbiter over what should and shouldn't be allowed during a pandemic? You can decide for yourself what risks you want to take, but you don't get to make that decision for other people.

    Biden also received Billions in free airtime on Cable News networks pumping him and his ticket up.
