    No police in Minneapolis, typical moron liberals; looters, robbers, rapists etc all get a holiday and a free pass. I want to the the mob sack city hall and see who they are going to call. All of these liberal hack politicians need to tossed out now, they have done enough damage to last several lifetimes.

    Citizen based policing? So glad I'm not up there, Minneapolis will turn into a shit hole. What a bunch of idiotic morons. My older sister is all for this, she's been preaching this for a week. Good luck sis, hope you brought a gun. Oh wait, you're against those too. I think I'll be buying another one, or two, sounds like a good idea.

    More propaganda for black history month. Bow down whitey!
    The history of Ancient Egypt shows they were in a long struggle to keep out and later to subdue the black hordes to the South. Look closely at the photo of Tutankhamun's sandals depicting two bound people on it, one black, the other Semitic, Egypt's enemies.
    Slavery was Egypt's downfall, the mixing of the white ruling class with the blacks resulted in their quick decline. In any event, the truth is that blacks have, from time to time, taken over already existing infrastructure and very rapidly destroy it. Detroit comes to mind.

    Aren’t there responsibilities and liabilities when one post bail for someone else?
    Wait till these idiot protesters don’t show up for court.

    I don’t believe that there are responsibilities laid on one if he posts bail for someone. The responsibility still lies with the person charged. The person posting the bond or bail does have to fill out a form when they pay, but AFAIK, that’s it.

    If you bail someone out of jail and they run, you'll be on the hook for any additional fees incurred if your pet protester / rioter misses their court date.

    FWIW, I don't think there's too many peaceful protesters being jailed, the vast majority of them are rioters/looters/thugs.

    You asked a very specific question and I answered it and blew your premise out of the water. You didn't like the facts of history presented so you dismissed it by calling it "propaganda". Do you remember who the Romans called "barbarians"? Maybe you should learn some history before you spout off and embarrass yourself.
    You sound like a Richard Spencer fan who isn't averse to painting all blacks with the same brush. That makes you no different than BLM wrt to their attitude towards whites and as much a part of the problem. Don't reduce yourself to their level.

    You go far enough left or right you end up in the same collectivist hell hole.

    Couldn't be further from the truth. Spencer and other self appointed leaders of the right are not fooling anybody, they are controlled opposition clowns.
    To state that blacks have not created any great civilizations is not racist. If you don't believe that the left has been pushing false history as truth, then I don't now what to tell you. I guess you have been reading different history books than I have.
    To hold any person, regardless of their colour/ethnicity, as some kind of genius because they can play a musical instrument or sing is just idiotic. Some of the 'greatest' musical artists have been known to possess very little besides that specific skill.
    Jordan Peterson...really? :BangHead:
    There are exceptions to the rule, there are intelligent blacks, as well as dumb whites, but taken as a whole it's clear which races (some Asians are quite smart too) have done the most to advance the human race and which ones have not.
    Is Pastor Manning a self hating black man for saying what he does about his own people?, no, he is the exception to the rule.

    101st airborne "screaming eagles" circa 1960.(Note M1 Garand rifles, military started switching to M-14 rifles about 1960) Fixed bayonets were used to move crowds away from areas that might suffer damage from rioting or acts of vandalism or away from government buildings etc. Troops on crowd control were not issued live ammunition, soldier in the foreground has an empty ammo pouch and is not carrying a bandolier of ammunition. (Ammo was kept close by in case the troops were shot at, usually in a command vehicle). I took the riot control class in '71 and we were trained to point the bayonet at the crowd in Phalanx formation and move forward one step at a time in unison. We could use the bayonet to slash at rioters, but we were not supposed to stab them unless a fellow soldier's life was in danger. (We all made sure our bayonets were sharp!). The M-1 and M-14 rifles were a lot better for crowd control because of greater length of those rifles and they were much more sturdy that the later M-16 which was about a foot shorter. Soldiers in the photo are carrying gas masks in case tear gas was deployed.

    The point is, that when push comes to shove, the US government will use the troops to attain their goals.

    If the goal is to end lawlessness and restore order because that has broken down, it is probably a justifiable use of force. Last time that happened in the US was in 1968 after Martin Luther King was killed. Never an easy choice to make, but at some point the risk to lives and property in an out of control riot/insurrection scenario is greater than the risk from using the military as law enforcement. Our soldiers refer to riot duty as "Rat Patrol" and most would rather clean a latrine with a tooth brush than do riot duty.

    That wasn't your question. So you would write off any people that haven't developed a "great" civilisation or just blacks? If the former that is probably 3/4s of the world. How many blacks have you known well? I've worked closely with more than a dozen and they fall into the same spectrum from brilliant to total a-hole as anyone else I've known.

    You are preaching to the choir. They completely ignore the murderous history of socialism. That is the low hanging fruit. We should stick with it.
    Do you have a problem with anything that JP has said or has written? Have you read 12 Rules for Life? Otherwise it sounds like just another ad hominem attack so typical of the left.
    I'm glad to hear you aren't a Spencer devotee but this is where IMHO you have gone off the rails. When you make incredible claims like saying it is the rule that blacks only behave well only on an exceptional basis you need to provide some solid evidence. Otherwise you are engaging in the same group based racism as those on the left. In this regard help yourself by looking up JP's bell curve analysis of racial differences. Then you will have some real data to do battle with. BTW The real problem is not being able to talk about the differences rather than the scale of the differences.

    I'm giving you the gears because we can't take the high ground in this culture war from the sanctimonious progressives while hypocritically engaging in the same identity politics.
