This was a cute rally, but at the end of the day, did it really buy us anything?
Almost as big of a dud as WW3 in Iraq last week.
Razor hit the nail on the head in this 1. I also loved the end. However I will say I'm kind of disappointed this went down without a hitch. We need some excitement in this country right about now. Everything is bland and boring, regardless of what the media tells us.
I like this cleaner Razorfish.
I feel like a declaration of a state of emergency would actually make an otherwise less-volatile situation more volatile, especially in the propaganda-style lead-up, it was as-if the governor was setting the stage for what they hoped would devolve into violence so he could take advantage of the situation by getting the media behind his justification for unconstitutional measures (and ignoring his constituents which he's never listened to [BS about him "continuing" to listen to]).
Another thing, razorfist complains that while this proves common-sense people can organize and peaceably march in mass to protect our rights (unlike the antifa and riot, er, I mean lefty protestors who bring at the very least property destruction), it doesn't accomplish anything unless we continue to show up like this like the left does every time Soros has a hangnail. To that I say, maybe true, but its not apples to apples, even before the left shows, the MSM sets the table, then covers them heavily, and favorably no matter what they do, extolling their narrative. Whereas before center-right/basic common sense people show up, the MSM runs fear-monger anti-center-right table-setting, then only cover any activity if there's the slightest hitch or outlier that causes problems, then, and only then will they cover the event to tie it into neo-nazi/white-supremacist bogeymen I-told-you-so's so as to prop up their narrative. If, in this case, it goes off with a hitch, it (and the common sense people's message/any logical person's takeaway) gets completely ignored by the media. So just showing up isn't even enough, new platforms have to get the message out that these are common-sense people with common sense ideas that are for individual rights that ultimately benefits everyone and aren't to the detriment of anyone (unlike socialist policies).
