shitfacedanon asked: that being said, and i do agree with many people's statement that the militia guys are dangerous and am aware of what they wanted, I do feel it raises a good point about how blatantly violent and disgusting police can be against people who pose literally no threat and are merely trying to bring attention to issues and yet when a actual threat arrives they seem almost skittish. Am I wrong to post that?

oh i wasn’t saying you were wrong, I’m just saying, the precedent has been well established that the government is able to do that with 0 fear of reprisal.  you’re totally right it’s heinous, but I think my point is, the government doesn’t have to worry about being heinous because they know that those protesters are only ever going to hold hands, not weapons.  I’m not fond of the threat of violence as a tool of popular will, but I have to admit, the feds don’t really respond to anything else.

There’s a double standard for how the government treats right-wing militia members as opposed to nonviolent student protesters.

Was the top picture taken from bundy ranch?  because in that instance, the militia were very explicitly there hoping to prove that the government would use violent force to sieze the ranch.  They were quite literally looking to get shot at, in order to encourage a violent uprising.
Of course the government treats militia better, they have weapons.  they can fight back.  they can encourage a larger uprising because violence generally begets more violence.  The whole point of peaceful protest is to publicly display scenes like the bottom picture in order to persuade the public that the government has no concern about your well being and that only massive public outcry will change their minds.
If people are no longer moved by images of non-lethal police brutality, then maybe there needs to be a new gameplan.

Someone on Twitter is trying to rename all the episodes of Breaking Bad with Shonen Jump anime-style titles, and the results so far are glorious.
