George Floyd

Each step Trump takes is another exhilerating point of no return towards the break down for republicans. They've been wanting this destruction for a while but needed someone to push it over the edge.

Cynics will tell me that it's been in the cards for a long time now, but this is the first time I see the current state as an irreversible path.

Just Ben watching a load of Instagram stories, looks fooking crazy out there. Sort of like a highlights reel of previous riots I've seen, with burning buildings, smashed up windows, unlikely people robbing stuff, face offs with police, all with the new weirdness of people in face masks

pockets of protests and violence/destruction in some major cities. it's also like a perfect storm: horrendous murder of an African American at the hands of an out-of-control cop (on top of all the others that preceded it), plus people cooped in lockdown for two months plus 15% unemployment rate with 40 million people losing their jobs plus racists tweets from the president. an explosive brew.

It's difficult to work out what's going on and who's doing what atm. There's a story going round about an undercover cop smashing windows and stirring things up, a reporter was allegedly caught playing gunshot noises off his phone to spice things up, Barr's been trying to spin all the issues as coming from "antifa" and "leftist" groups... It's a mess.

stinks of white supremacist false flag tactics. been seeing lots of blatant aggravation by the riot police too. they want the escalation.

I've donated to the George Floyd memorial fund and Minnesota freedom fund.

Doesn't feel like much more than a token gesture but hopefully it does help a bit.

Trump's spinning the whole thing as being led by "antifa" and "radical left anarchists" and he's grandstanding on Twitter about designating them a terrorist organisation...

There's some absolutely insane stuff circulating on social media atm. Some guy defending a shop and charging protesters with a sword then being beaten by a crowd of people, a teenager being shot in the face by police, police shooting paintballs or rubber bullets or something at a woman on her own porch, a civilian firing a hunting bow at protesters...

lots of bad shit happening. also, don't believe everything you read, particularly on social media.

I'm curious how much, if any, of this stuff Anonymous have allegedly leaked is legit. I'd forgotten Anonymous were even a thing.
