150+ years since the Constitution was amended, and yet still no gratitude?

Some sources say the riots were allowed to happen because you can't prosecute without a crime, and Antifa has been thoroughly infiltrated.

Apparently, like Sir Patrick Mack, I live in the near future. On 2020-06-01 I posted this in an Aerodynanics thread, when I killed the one in The Lounge.

I went back and added the strike-through to save that thread.

Now today, there is this: https://youtu.be/gdUOlqZ7844. If you look into it it's Steve Bannon doing a Benjamin Fulford play.

All that BLM BS is spreading outside the U.S. too. There were some riots in Brazil too.

Clive Bundy has apparently won a couple of technical arguments against the BLM recently, but got overshadowed by other news.

For a long time there has been a rivalry between cyclists and parents over who are the biggest morons. This guy is the real MVP, he is using his own child as a human shield:



I was expecting excrement on Twitter today but found gold:



American police get a lot of crap for basically being used diapers wrapped in blue ribbon, but here is a video showing how brutal the Norwegian police can be:

Amazes me that people are bringing their children to these "peaceful protests", but perhaps the media is to blame since they only talk about how peaceful everything is.

Anyhow, it's clear from the photo that the cops aren't even looking at the man, but instead focused on something more menacing in the background. Shame on the photographer for not capturing what is actually going on.

That weapon looks like a teargas launcher, though I've never seen one so I'm only speculating. If so, it's used to disperse a crowd, not subdue individuals. It's painted scary black though, so clearly an "assault weapon".

jakobnev — I watched the video. Liked the final chuckle in the car at the end.

Was it Tucker Carlson who said the country was broken over the weekend? I forget, things move fast. Anywho, Andy Ngo, the reporter who was beaten by Antifa just months ago published this:

I don't know if kids these days have read their Hakim Bey (1991 is 3 decades ago), but autonomous zones are necessarily temporary.

naturalnews.com: After mocking Trump for it, mainstream media now reporting on breakthrough UV light treatments that disinfect the body
Quote:
According to Andrei Goverdovsky, who works at Russia’s state nuclear agency in Rosatom, the project has been dubbed “luminous gas” and, believe it or not, really is a type of disinfectant – which means that Trump was right once again in using the word disinfectant to describe one of the novel treatments being developed for this novel virus.

“So far, no one has managed to hold UV disinfection inside a person,” Goverdovsky is quoted as saying. “We figured out how to do this. We select molecules and gas components that when inhaled remain activated and emit ultraviolet light directly in the lungs.”
Luminiferous aether is steampunk AF.
