    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.
    I didnít say you did but you did attribute it to the left wing Karenís, I was noting the right wing Karenís did their part too is all.

    I would agree when just looking at deaths for this year. The issue is what about all other forms of police brutality? What about the many locked up for many minor crimes? What about the many many years multiple decades worth of these people being killed/beaten/locked up due to over the top policing? Now this is where it starts to be an issue that many see as at least comparable.

    I donít think anyone has denied the issue with covid or lack of social distancing and even have been calling it out. What a few seem to keep refusing (not you) is to acknowledge the difference in this issue and going to a rally to hear lies/conspiracies. Or they simply think the causes are equal which is yikes.

    Well the problem with that thought is people attending those gatherings then disperse to their homes, their places of work, etc where people who did NOT attend those gatherings are then exposed to whatever the people were exposed to AT the gatherings. Therefore those attending gatherings make some decisions FOR those that don't, without their knowledge.

    Our government even when it isnít a pandemic makes tons of decisions over what we are allowed to do and what risks are too much. Thatís why tons of laws are in place, canít just drink till your hammered and drive legally for example.

    Not the discussion we're having....the discussion was how necessary rallies were vs protests given both created unnecessary risks. Nobody WANTED protests, they just understood the reasons people did. The same is not true with rallies.

    And people who go to these protests are doing the same thing. Whatís the difference? There isnít any. Pick a lane and stick to it.

    I agree it was a hypocritical to chastise one and not the other.

    COVID-19 Response: An issue that shouldn't be at all political....yet here we are

    No one. I have no power here. In my opinion neither event should of happened. They both created public risk. One of the two events could have easily been cancelled by President Trump

    He said gatherings. They are both gatherings. Having gatherings created public risk.

    Please do not tell me you think Trump didnít receive enough airtime.

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.
    Excellent post.

    Equal risk, ideally neither is driving in this weather, but one is noticeably more necessary.
    "Oh, so you ignore science and think driving in a snowstorm with 0 visibility is a good idea if it fits your worldview" is basically the response to be expected out of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

    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

    Again, you don't give a single, solitary **** about being safe and respectful of others during a pandemic. This is just another pathetic what about because you think Trump and his followers were unfairly demonized for having giant rallies during a pandemic.

    Keep playing make believe though. We're all really impressed.
