These people are LARP:ing or in some form of mass hysteria. You can clearly see that in this video, where one of them get shot: https://vk.com/video-189179245_456240636
They attack unaware they are representing a realistic threat that is forcing their victim to use deadly force to defend himself. They scream "we're going to kill you!" as if they're invincible or as if their victim, while being smacked to the head with fists and skateboards, sees the situation like they do -- as some form of simulated play-fighting, with no actual intent to seriously hurt anyone.
Then one of them gets shot, and immediately everyone snaps out of it. They scream confused things like "why did he do that?", as if beating someone on the street is their right and warrant no defensive actions. Suddenly they call for the cops to come, even though just moments before they called for abolishing the police.
The snapping-out-of-it -moment is the most scary thing in the video. These people don't live in the reality.
In this war everything has to change, the reason or direction is irrelevant. Those that want things to chance signal everyone around them that they are on the good progressive side, and everyone who doesn't want things to chance are on the evil conservative side.
A person could probably demand every street in their town to be painted pink with white polka dots, and then blame everyone who opposed the idea to be anti-black and conservative.
I would feel absolutely useless and meaningless if I didn't have children. Why would I bother doing anything if it wasn't for them? Who cares if I have a fancy career or not, if there's nobody to work for and nobody to remember me? At work I'm easily replaceable no matter how important I try to make myself feel, but to my kids I am the only father they will ever have, and in that aspect I am totally irreplaceable.
I feel sorry for all these women who missed the chance to have children because they were too busy working or partying, and then they spend the rest of their long life trying to convince themselves that they made the right choice. But to be fair, I'm happy for her decision. As liberals stop breeding, the future will be much more conservative.
Yeah, as an outsider I assess that you have now reached the active part of a civil war. The riots are only part of the operation, the political moves from the left and the taking over of newspapers that coincide with the rioting combines into something that I have no trouble calling an active civil war.
While different levels of the operation might not be well organised, with each group making their own moves independently, the moves correlate in a way to increase each other's intensity. Rioting creates cover for politicians to move against conservatives, politicians create cover for rioters, and both create cover for the taking over of companies.
This means it will only get worse, and it won't be long until there will be officials fighting officials. I wouldn't be surprised if we see something like that before the end of August.
Jesus Christ. That's a life-altering injury right there. 😲
But what was he expecting to happen? He was standing right in front of the statue that people were trying to pull down.
I do think this is an interesting experiment. Movements that are built on irrational hate and utopian visions tend to burn themselves out when given the chance to lead. Finland had a strong communist movement with a utopian vision in the 1970s, but once they were given actual power in the government they had to scale down their ambitions and they ended up doing pretty much what every other party did. This discredited them and made them a marginal party, which they still are.
Let these commies fester there for a few weeks and watch them get all Lord-of-the-Flies on each other, before abandoning the place.
Where did they get the barricades, and how did they move them to place?
Finnish BBC equivalent YLE broadcast Flynn's funeral LIVE in its entirety. I fucking kid you not. Usually the only people whose funerals are broadcast are those of great statesmen, like former presidents. Apparently a drug addict who lived half a world away, probably never even heard of Finland, and was sentenced for robbing pregnant women, is in the same category now as the former leaders of our country?
Now look, it was horrifying to see a man beg for his life and then be killed anyway. This, however, does not make him a great man, a martyr, or a saint. I am not personally interested in whether he lived or died, and neither are any of those people who so loudly claim they are.
I just made a bet of 1000€ for Trump winning at a betting site. I'll double my money if he wins.
This importing of irrelevant Anglo-Saxon problems into Finland has irritated me for decades.
In the 1980s we had an anti-hunting animal rights movement, that was imported from Britain. In Britain hunting was allowed only for landowners, and the true reason to be against hunting in Britain was more of a class issue than actually relating to animal welfare.
In Finland anyone can hunt in government land, which most land is. Here hunting is typically done by unemployed and poor people in remote areas of the country. It gives them something to do, while also providing them free meat. (My mother's parents were very poor farmers, but ever since they managed to get electricity to their house in the early 1970s and buy a freezer, they always had it stocked up on meat.)
After the animal-rights -activists imported this class-issue from Britain, these well-off city-people perverted the whole movement and started protesting poor rural folk who hunted to feed their families.
Now these fucktards, whose ancestors never had anything to do with slavery* or oppressing black people in any way or form, are bowing to recent African migrants because a US cop strangulated a black man in the US.
*) BLACK slavery, that is. Plenty (5% of the total population) of Finns were taken as slaves and were worked to death during the building of St. Petersburg. If anything WE should be rioting in St. Petersburg and burning it to the ground.
