Washington DC and The Holy Land>Police, National Guard sweep protesters from Lafayette Square ahead of curfew
RodeoPants2 06:08 PM 06-01-2020
I welcome all libertarians and lovers of freedom and our first amendment rights to the resistance. Those of you who think looting is a capital offense or that the right to assemble is subject to the whims of the government are welcome to move to Russia or China.

Trump said he was taking “swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C. What happened last night was a total disgrace. As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property. We are putting everybody on warning, our 7 o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced.”

Equating these protests with looters is their lazy and convenient way to not care about police brutality.

And its the same as it ever was.

MLK addressed it as thus:

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."

Guess I am not seeing the problem. Several days of violence, numerous secret service agents hurt, and President had to be told to go into a bunker. God forbid ordering the perimeter extended. Mass gathering dispersed after three days of mass gatherings causing damage.

I highlighted the relevant portion.

Posters ITT who claim to be Americans have basically no respect for the constitution when they call for protesters to be shot.

Another relevant part of the constitution is this, from the 8th amendment:
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted

I would argue that the death penalty, without due process, is not an appropriate punishment for looting, and I think most of civil society would agree. Would you?
Look at this donkey, quoting the COTUS verbatim (not really, since he somehow believes that the BOR protects looting/thievery/etc.), but can't understand or agree with the same language written by the same people that wrote the 2nd A.

And as predicted every key detail of the OP is wrong and the story fabricated. Shocking.

Where did I say the bill of rights protects looting?

You know, it was vulgar, what he did by posing there with a Bible he isn't even familiar enough with to know which end is up. The Bible should not be used as a prop, and Trump has gotten very poor reviews for it from the evangelicals he probably thought he was impressing.

But as for the protestations of the Episcopalians, they have been using churches and Bibles as props to deceive people for a whole generation, so I don't want to hear it from them.

President Trump tells Brian Kilmeade it was a false report that he was taken to the underground bunker amid protests, though he confirms he did go to the bunker. He says he went in the day and it was "more for an inspection." "I was there for a tiny, short little period of time."
