Mate, you doubtless mean well, but don't you see how condescending or patronising those last two sentences are?

 

As for the protestors being peaceful...well, it would seem you have only been watching CNN (the American Pravda). Have you not seen those masked crazies going right up to the cops (standing peacefully there) and shouting the most foul abuse at them, with the cops just having to stand there and pretend it ain't happening???

  Who'd be a cop with masked yahoos like that spitting their mental illness into guys just trying to do their jobs.  And incidentally, how about the "peaceful protestors" who confronted the idiot Seattle mayor in front of her home, the woman who suddenly saw how much she needed a police force, having abandoned the guys to the sickos in CHAZ?CHOP???  Peaceful suddenly becomes moronic aggro when it's right outside your home.....

Perhaps, but this is likely just naive hope that one might actually engage with our colleagues on the Right and gain a reasonable response rather than deflection and whataboutism. When one gets an occasional post like that which was written thoughtfully, it should be acknowledged due to the rarity of such an event.

 

That there are so few incidents of the sort that you highlight given the thousands and thousands of protesters in so many locations is the exception that proves the rule. People are on the street for a reason and the majority of them are risking their health because the situation for them is intolerable and they are finally at the point where they refuse to accept the social compact as it is currently being offered to them. They have good reasons for demanding this change and are doing so within their rights as American citizens.

It's one thing if they're risking their health. But in fact they are also risking the lives of others. That said, mask wearing does seem to be prevalent at these demonstrations. Whereas at pro-Trump venues, it is a rarity. Including at venues where President Trump himself was present!
