White folks in Portland Oregon are exclaiming, “This is not a dictatorship!” But apparently, Trump is paying them no mind because Trump has stated that he is going to send federal troops to states Trump says are “out-of-control thanks to Democratic leadership.”
“My sense is they chose Portland because if they had rolled this out in, say, Minneapolis, it would mean to come in direct confrontation with many more Black activists,” said Joe Lowndes, a professor of political science at the University of Oregon. “With Portland, it’s a whiter city and they can demonize Antifa or the idea of anarchist looters and kind of take race out of it in a direct way, and make it seem more sympathetic.’’
If anything, activists said, the president’s show of force seemed to give protesters an injection of energy and enthusiasm, with many returning after weeks of shrinking protests.
“People are legit afraid for their rights,” Gow, a nurse, told USA TODAY. “They are coming for our rights. They are exercising martial law.”
According to what I have read, Portland, Oregon only has about 40,000 Black folks living there and so 40,000 Black folks are not out on the streets of Portland, daily getting beaten up, pelted with non-lethal bullets and other projectiles and getting gassed and arrested. And do you remember awhile back I put up a blog titled,
A new report by American Transparency, a nonpartisan watchdog that compiles data on public expenditures, indicates the militarization of ordinary American life goes well beyond law enforcement and regular citizens.
67 federal agencies during the fiscal years 2006 to 2014 amassed stockpiles of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment to the tune of $1.48 billion.
The Department of Veterans Affairs, which spent $11.7 million on military equipment.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.”
Overall, American Transparency estimates there are more than 200,000 non-military federal officers and security personnel not attached to the Pentagon, which is a force larger than the Marine Corps, with its 180,000 personnel.
“The recent growth of the federal arsenal begs the questions: Just who are the feds planning to battle?” the author of the report, Adam Andrzejewski, wrote for Forbes.
Yeah, it begs the question, “Just who are the feds planning to battle?” And as you can see “Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?” was originally published in 2016 and not even 5 years later, the feds are on the streets of Portland, Oregon in unmarked vehicles while dressed in camouflage, pulling people off the streets and throwing them into unmarked vans and hauling them off.
One would think this was Nazi Germany, but then, Amerikkka did give the Nazis free rides over to this shithole and for what purpose? I’ll let you decide. Meanwhile, there is a hue and cry from multiple mayors demanding that Trump cease and desist with his threats of sending federal troops to their cities.
Fifteen mayors of major US cities have sent a letter to US federal law enforcement officials demanding a stop to the sending of federal forces to cities and the removal of federal officers from Portland, Oregon.
Also, there have been multiple lawsuits filed in essence stating that what Trump is doing is illegal. Even a retired US Army Lieutenant weighed in and stated that “What kind of bullshit is this?” Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré questioned the deployment of unmarked and armed federal troops at protests in Portland, Oregon by the Trump administration. “They were wearing military uniforms. That uniform represents the cloth of our nation — for people who don’t draw overtime, who serve around the world at the direction of the national command authority — and it’s not to be used as an instrument of protest suppression.”
Not to mention that there has been outrage expressed over the severe beat down that a Navy veteran was subjected to at the hands of those federal troops of Trump’s. Navy veteran, 53-year old Christopher David decided to join the protests and while he was speaking with federal agents, he was beaten and sprayed with pepper gas. Christopher David had this to say of the incident, ” “What they were doing was unconstitutional,” said David, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Navy veteran. ”Sometimes I worry that people take the oath of office or the oath to the Constitution, and it’s just a set of words that mean nothing. They really don’t feel in their heart the weight of those words.”
Well, Christopher David, to that I say, the ‘man’ who sent those federal troops in to beat and gas you was a draft dodger and Amerikkkans went to the polls and voted for that draft dodger, who has in turn sent federal troops to beat and gas white folks who have, in his opinion, gotten out-of-line and need to be reined in. Why should anyone in Amerikkka be surprised at this? When white Amerikkkans decided to vote for a lying, egotistical, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, bigoted, draft-dodging asshole for president, what did they expect would happen? Exactly what is happening. But for some strange reason, whites thought that they would be immune to getting gassed and beaten and arrested by federal troops. Well, I guess Trump sure showed you. And on top of that, many of the protesters in Portland, Oregon went home and told their mommies that those big ole, mean ole federal troops were gassing and beating them.
The white mommies showed up at the protest with their yellow shirts on the very next day only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets.
I seriously hope the world is watching this shitshow. Nancy Pelosi has been wailing and moaning over how the Hong Kong protesters have been treated by the authorities over there and yet, the streets of this shithole, that lauds itself as democratic and with freedom of speech and assembly and some more shit, is looking like a warzone.
“Beautiful landscape” and “America Spring” became hot words used online in China to mock the double standards and hypocrisy of the Trump administration and some US Congress members, as well as US media outlets, for being critical and tough toward their domestic massive nationwide demonstrations but encouraging violent activities in Hong Kong.
Chinese experts noted that if US politicians understood that if they encourage violence in another country, their words might backfire on them one day, they would probably “think twice” before commenting again on the Hong Kong turmoil in the future.
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in June 2019 called the Hong Kong citywide protests “a beautiful sight to behold” but her words were deployed back against her sarcastically online over the weekend by Chinese net users commenting on nationwide riots across the US.
At a press conference on October 24, 2019, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Hua Chunying said that “I would like to say this to Ms Pelosi: Please keep the ‘beautiful sight’ to yourselves because we want nothing of it.”
Some Chinese internet users called Hua a “prophet” on the Chinese internet’s social media networks.
“We didn’t expect that US politicians can enjoy this kind of ‘beautiful sight’ at home so soon,” was one typical comment.
Apparently, Amerikkkan lawmakers can interfere in what is going down in another area of the globe insofar as protests are concerned, but when those protests take place on Amerikkkan soil by Amerikkkans, then “put that insurrection down right now, goddamn it!” seems to be the call from all and sundry. So, what the Chinese is saying is “Look to your own collapsing house of cards before telling us what to do about ours.”
Nancy Pelosi can just shut the fuck up and Joe Biden as well because both would be doing the same thing if the Democrats were at the helm of this stinking, sinking Titanic. Whites are out on the streets because they’ve got no jobs either since COVID-19 has come along and put paid to that shit. It is not just American descendants of slavery who are hurting in this fucked up economy. And while the Democrats and Republicans fight over what’s to be included in another “too little too late” stimulus package, COVID-19 has ramped up, unlike what was originally thought in that during the summer months, COVID-19 would be a no-show. Well, COVID-19 sure showed up and in spades if the lamestream media is to be believed. So much for waiting until cold weather sets in for a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. Who the hell is going to be left to vote because between Trump’s federal troops busting heads and COVID-19, there is already talk of not enough poll volunteers for the upcoming November election. So it would do those shits in congress good to focus on the shit that’s going down in this shithole instead of worrying about what some protesters are being subjected to in Hong Kong since the protesters here in this shithole are getting the same treatment that Nancy Pelosi bemoaned over in Hong Kong. “Mind Amerikkka’s business, Pelosi since Amerikkka is eyeball deep in shit and that cannot be denied!”
“World, are you watching this shit?!” I sure hope so! This shit over here is a prime example of “the pot calling the kettle, black.” Hypocrisy has always reigned supreme in this racist shithole and it always will regardless of what party is at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. Donald Trump’s claim is that he is merely protecting federal buildings when he sends in federal troops. Does that shithead not understand that those federal buildings were built using the tax dollars of the very Amerikkkans who are protesting on the doorstep of those ‘federal’ buildings? His presidential salary is being paid for by our tax dollars. Every single member of the House and Senate is being paid by our tax dollars. We have every right to do what we please with those buildings because we damn well paid for them. Federal buildings, my ass. Those are the peoples buildings. What Trump is doing is illegal, but when has that ever stopped him? And since no one has the balls to haul his lunatic ass off to an asylum, he is going to continue to make sure that more lives are lost thanks to his stupidity in his response to COVID-19 and in sending in federal troops from every agency from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other agencies listed under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. So, Portland’s residents are now listed as either terrorists or they need to be deported; which one is it? I could not make this shit up if I tried.
