Mob is roaming the streets, harassing, assaulting people and even conquering (a tiny bit for now) territory. This is exactly when leaders not supporting the mob have to stand up and stand up strong. Until rule of law is restored in practice and in public debate it is again a foundation - they have to fight. They who have offices and institutional support - not private people who are vulnerable to the mob.

A video of Kaitlyn Saunders skating on the square opposite the White House has amassed over 350,000 views.

Imagine races reversed. Green girl skating over massive "green lives matter (exclusively, if killed by blue)". Then saying she wants to inspire only one skin color to skate more.

"The couple grabbed their guns after noticing several armed protesters in the crowd, shouting threats."  

This may be a start but is not a solution. Mob can pick off people one by one, especially with net-based attacks where their hundreds of thousands can pile up.

This is a situation where leaders are necessary. 'Muricans should make their so-called leaders stand their ground against it, or dump them and rally against whoever is willing and able to do the job. When mobs turns at popular people with political backing it will just not work, they are are entrenched to take some hits. Unlike a rando who can loose job/career/livelihood/health/and maybe soon even life if it comes to unlucky draw of mobs attention.

Graham Linehan, known for his work with "The IT Crowd" and "Father Ted," has been permanently suspended from Twitter, after allegedly making multiple transphobic comments.

"men aren't women tho" = Stating a fact. "compared trans activists to Nazis" = This is not about ppl with disphoria, only about the grifters living of the controversy. "compared children questioning their gender to children being experimented on in Nazi Germany" = Anybody can be compared to Hitler and that comparison may be laughably weak or apt depending on exactly what was said. Trump was compared to Nazis or Hitler endlessly and no one is fainting over that. It is not in itself over the line.

Internal repression of the kind we’ve witnessed in many instances these past few weeks is incompatible with the ideals so many of our leaders pay lip service to.

"where so-called rule of law is too often maintained at the barrel of a gun" Burning down buildings, conquering a small part of a city, mobs attacking passerby's or drivers - none of this is actually dissent into lawlessness? How is "genuine" rule of law instead of "so-called" rule of law supposed to be maintained against this kind of crime?

I'm not saying USA cops are great or that there are no examples of needless brutality. But examples of that are to be found mostly in previous years (exception being Trump clearing that one park), while last month was all about the other part of the story that is completely missed here. Plenty of so-called Americans don't care for US law and they are such degenerates that yes only a barrel of the gun keeps them in line.

Dictionaries can lag behind societal developments, and the idea that a “word” indisputably “means” what dictionaries say is simply sloppy.

Meaning of "word" can change, but the concept of "racism" and "new fake one-side only racism" are 2 completely different things and need their own words.

Coronavirus has worsened the growing crisis of gender-based violence in the country.

For once looks like a lefty program which is commendable. I only hope the guys on the workshop are not the already rather fine men who would never rape anyone, or never murder a woman... while the actually perpetrating demographic is just never reached.

How musicians have responded to the death of George Floyd and the rise in civil rights protests.

"Protests songs" endorsed and promoted by the establishment. So brave to push on these open doors!

Patrick Hutchinson was pictured carrying a man to safety following a clash between demonstrators.

OK good they at least published it. But this is an article about lefty violence stopped by a brave citizen and ... who was starting those beatings?

"...after violence broke out and police were attacked." It just broke out. It just so happened that fists started flying? The only active part is how far-right "congregated". Trying to pin it on those guys, while truth is lefty mobs attacked those citizens mostly right wingers but not just them and attacked police. The black citizen carrying victim of beating out was helping him escape further violence at the hands of lefty mob. Lead information of this whole situation is completely buried and insinuations try misdirecting blame all the way around.
