  • Protesting

    This country was founded by protesters. Sam Adams and John Hancock were two of the most prominent protesters, protesting British taxation without representation. They instigated the Boston Tea Party and the boycott of British trade goods.
    The American War of Independence started on April 19, 1775 when the British Royal Governor of Massachusetts sent Redcoats to Lexington and Concord. Their mission was to arrest Hancott and Adams in Lexington and then proceed to Concord to seize arms and ammunition that was being stored there.
    The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal. The Constitution was ratified in 1787. The Constitution would not have come to pass without its original sin of the protection of slavery demanded by southern delegates. It took Lincoln and the Civil War to abolish slavery. Constitutional Amendments have rectified some of the wrongs that couldn't be passed in 1787.
    Civil Rights Legislation of the 1960's has helped to restore rights to black citizens. However, white bigots, many of whom are government officials and policemen have systematically abrogated those rights guaranteed by civil rights legislation and the Constitution. President Trump is now the most prominent white bigot.
    The vast majority of protests going on in the country are peaceful. The purpose of the protests is to get the rights of black citizens restored. That is long overdue.
    Some outside agitators, actually criminals, have taken over some of the protests to loot stores. It is the very difficult job of the police to arrest these criminals, while allowing the peaceful protests to proceed.
    Yesterday, Trump had his cops use teargas and rubber bullets to clear a peaceful protest so that he could have a photo-op in front of a church holding a bible (upside down at one time). He is not religious, does not read the Bible nor pray forgiveness for his sins. He is just a hippocrit. His sole focus is on the criminal looters and denies the Constitutional right of all Americans to peacefully protest for justice.

    It is time to get rid of this failed President and his enabling Republican Senators and Congressmen.

      Colin Kaepernick was right when he kneeled for the civil rights of black citizens. Drew Brees is clueless on this situation.

          Shouldn't mix politics, religion, civil rights etc with sport. Not the forum for protesters to voice their opinions/views. The Lord's Prayer is not played before the games and nor should the National Anthem. Sport should stand alone from patriotism/militarism otherwise you mimic the atmosphere felt at the 1936 Olympics.

            Trump, using Attorney General Barr as his stooge, is deploying many types of Federal Law Enforcement Troops to stop peaceful Americans from protesting for justice in Washington DC. Trump and Barr are making a mockery of the Constitution. The First Amendment guarantees all Citizens to peacefully gather together to protest Government Actions that they deem to be wrong. Trump doesn't just want to be President, he wants to have dictatorial powers. He, along with his enablers, is the greatest threat to the Republic known as the United States of America.

              All of these Federal Officers are in plain clothes and the citizens protesting can not identify them as officials. They do not show badges, nor do they identify themselves. TRUMP'S SECRET POLICE STATE IS A REALITY. Is there a better reason to vote Trump out of office in November?

                The peaceful protests are getting bigger and bigger than ever. This is the thirteenth day since the police killed that man with his hands cuffed behind his back. Trump, meanwhile, hides out in the White House tweeting against his perceived enemies who criticize him. He cancelled his golf outing this weekend because his advisers said it wouldn't look good to the public.

                  Civil disobedience is the way to go. Follow the example set by MLK. I hope they keep it up, especially outside the White House. It'll drive Chump nuts!
