Should I go to war, or should I let war come to me?

Take to the rooftops if you live in the wrong city. Otherwise, watch and wait.

Early vids seem to show the guy who got half his arm blown off was armed as he was attacking the rifle shooter, who may be the same guy who shot another guy in the head who was involved in the trashing a car lot, who may be the same guy threatening the armed guys protecting a business and literally daring them to shoot him.

Or none of this is true.

Crazy.

looks like self defense in both cases to me. Of course, that won't stop the media narrative from being "Deranged white supremacist opens fire on peaceful protesters" today.

Yeah for sure man, I definitely meant that post to cover *any* developments in Kenosha and not the specific decision in the wake of another police shooting to post about the protest and not the shooting itself--the response of "oh fuck this is going to get out of hand" and not "oh fuck something bad happened here." The fact that it has escalated two days later doesn't make skipping over Blake's shooting any less representative of the overt biases on display in this thread over the last few months!

It just ties the events to a location. Kinda minor one. Now watch the others.

Jesus.

If the cops weren't so busy shooting unarmed black men, maybe some of them could go clear the protesters out of that diner.

Sadly that video will probably do more to panic Washington elites into doing something about these idiots than a dozen videos of blue collar and small business owners getting beaten to a pulp and their livelihoods destroyed.
