A lot of this Blue Lives Matter stuff gives off vibes of treating cops like they’re an allied militia that exists to suppress opponents and look the other way when you want to do whatever you want.

Complaining about antifa when your political movement kills cops isn’t really about maintaining the state’s monopoly on violence, it’s just complaining about the competition.

I'm just going to shout this. PUERTO RICANS DON'T HAVE WATER AND SO THEY'RE TRYING TO DRINK WATER FROM ***SUPERFUND SITES***

We’re in one of the worst economic disasters in American history amid a global pandemic, people are revolting against the police, the U.S. president is trying to bring social media companies to heel and has just threatened to shoot looters. What else can we pile on top of this

One of the Women's Marchers' final acts: leaving their protest signs in front of the White House.
