Civil disobedience continues across the country over George Floyd's death, Wednesday | USA TODAY



Demonstrations on Wednesday were largely peaceful, much like Tuesday, and in contrast with Monday’s military and law enforcement show of force, in Washington D.C., where demonstrators were cleared from an area around a park near the White House in a show of force by authorities to clear a path for President Trump and advisors to have a photo opportunity from an historic church on Lafayette Square.

Minneapolis and other U.S. cities brace for more heated demonstrations after protesters and police across the nation continue to clash in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

More than 6,000 arrests have been made at demonstrations nationwide since video emerged showing former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin holding his knee to Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. On Monday, President Donald Trump chastised governors for failing to halt the looting, vandalism and violence.

    Imagine a day when the world began to burn. When the smoke clears and the ash settles, is that the day humankind will finally stop fighting each other? I believe its truly time for humanity to wake up, look inside themselves and ask some real questions. I am not a writer, blogger or even a person who tends to be to vocal about my beliefs or opinions, so this may not even come across very well. None the less….

    Nobody is denying that tragic things happen and that their bad people out there. If they are, they have their head buried in the sand. The problem is people’s perception and that is what needs to change. We fight each other for so many reasons and sadly most of those reasons are rooted in race, religion, nationality or sexuality. Does it really matter what color your skin is, where you were born or what higher power you choose to believe in? Does someone’s difference, most of which they have no control over, truly effect you? I believe people need to stop identifying with words that are just descriptors. On this planet we have an array of unique individuals. Some have white skin, some have black skin, and some of something in between. Some come from places most have never heard of and some are born into a place everyone knows. What difference does any of that really make. Did you choose the color of your skin, hair, eyes or the place you were born? Is a person with different skin color really any different from you then a person who is taller or shorter? I think not.

    I would could be described with many words, but they are just that, words. They would only be how someone else would describe me, they are NOT who I am. Just like a black person, Asian person or middle eastern person, have words to describe them, but that does NOT make them anything different then myself or anyone else I know. We are all people. At our core I believe we all want the same thing. We want a happy and fulfilling life. We want to be able to walk outside in the sun without fear of being verbally, physically or mentally harmed. We want the means to provide for our families, have a full belly and a warm safe place to sleep. Its mind boggling that achieving all of that is so simple in theory yet seems impossible for most to accomplish. It’s done with understanding and an open heart. Otherwise known as love.

    Everyone needs to take moment and look in the mirror. Does that person down the street you hate or constantly talk bad about really affect you and your situation? How much time and energy do you waste on hate? Have I missed the understanding that my attention to something that makes me feel bad, only gives power to that thing and makes me feel worse? Does the person the homosexual man working at the coffee shop choose to love really negatively affect my life? The only thing that has any real impact on your life regarding any circumstance is your perception of it. If you perceive a person that lives thousands of miles away, that believes in a different hire power then you are a real danger to you, then that will become your reality. I see white people, black people, Christians, Muslims, cops and priests all doing bad things. I don’t deny this, but I know that it’s the individual that is making the wrong choice and causing the pain. It is NOT the persons skin color, belief or occupation doing it. I know right now there are a lot of people out there with a lot of hate towards police officers. Yes, there are some bad officers out there, but the majority are good people, trying to make a living like everyone else.

    The cycle of hate, violence and inequality needs to be broken. The first step to this change is to change your own perception. The planet only has one race and that is the human race. If we want our lives to be full of peace and prosperity, we need to hold that desire in our hearts for everyone. Imagine what this world could be if all nations let go of greed and worked together with the goal of improving humanity and our world. Everyone on this planet is a human being and everyone’s life has value.

    PhucKKK peaceful protests. The only thing mass-murdering-international-terrorist Amurdercaca understands is violence. The end game of white-supremacy is always death. Physics lesson: body armor does NOT stop blades; such as spears, javelins, and bodkin-tipped arrows. A bodkin-tipped-arrow fired from a compound-bow or tactical-crossbow. Will penetrate any amount of PIG body-amour. And still enter 8" inches into the PIGs body; killing it. From 170 yards a modern repeating air-rifle can put lead, silently, undetected, into a PIG's brain. If only 8,000 arm themselves and the city electrical workers plunge the city into darkness for three weeks. All PIGs and national-guard are easily eliminated.

    George Floyd had fentynol morphine and meth . 2 slow your breathing considerably. He didn’t die from asphyxiation. .seems like BLM can’t find just a regular black guy in all these police incidents . 🤔 hmmmmm makes you think is there one of you that didn’t have it coming or have done a lot worse than the way they died

    Always attack PIGs from behind. You will always be able to get behind the PIGs. Because all their amour is designed for defense from a frontal attack. Even from in front. Paracord-sling thrown ammo to the throat will kill, to the arm will break bone, and to the groin will put the PIG down. So pellet and arrow snipers have a stationary target. There are 1000X times more of us; and the PIGs numbers are finite. Segment II of II parts.

  7. Hispanics Are Our Salvation

    The stone that slew Goliath was thrown by David using a paracord-sling. Which can hurl ammunition 100 yards away. Ancient armies always had a contingent of slingers. Who would make square, sharp-edged-ammunition; to throw at the enemy. A sling can be carried in your pocket. When PIGs are seen abusing anyone. Two singers can kill or render unconscious, eight [8] PIGs; in just ten [10] seconds. How to use a paracord sling is presented @ the 9:13 mark of this video “MABA” = Make America Brown Again! #2 The Holy Catholic Crusade to revitalize America! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vVqsCWJY2Q Segment I of II parts.

  8. Hispanics Are Our Salvation

    Using paintball repeating blowguns; the PIGs cannot see through their riot shields. When the PIGs drop their riot shields; their face shields are blinded by paintball-repeating blowguns. When the PIGs drop both riot and face shields; the slingers can execute them. From behind and in front. You can always get behind the PIGs. Who are like the Roman army; that could only attack going forward. PIG's equipment is designed for a frontal attack. Hugh holes in PIG amour from behind. Body amour does NOT stop blades like spears, javelins, and bodkin-tipped-arrows. Javelin "throwers" extend the javelin's range.

    I'm pasting this in every video I watch on this subject and it is directed to the rioters:
    The actions of one officer do not represent law enforcement officers as a whole. George Floyd should not have been killed, plain and simple. The officer who killed him was wrong and fucked up in the worst way. However, people need to stop using this incident as an excuse to do harm to others and their property. All your immature rioting will get you nowhere. Your actions have consequences. In the end, what will you achieve by destroying property and hurting people? Stop the violence and stop the childish rampage.
    George Floyd was a living, breathing human being with family and friends. He is not an excuse for your destruction.

    I thought violence against civilians and kids was ok! We have been accepting violence against unarmed civilians since Viet Nam & we recruit the soldiers who rape and murderes those millions of kids/civilians, into the police force… now we complain if they do the same on US soil (brown is ok, black is not….wtf?!)

    American needs to protect itself from the hidden enemies inside USA otherwise it will be too late to control such type of intellect terrorist protestors. No sympathy for such men or women who are anti Americans. They are traitors and hidden enemies.
