Well, no matter how you look at it, protests were going to happen either way. There were pro-Trump militia's saying they were going to march on Washington... with their guns... if Trump lost. So, honestly, it's difficult to tell which either scenario is worse than the other. With their candidate winning, Republicans have the opportunity to act like victims and demean everyone who is against Trump. Democrats would've done the same if their candidate won, though. This has been a rough election, and I'm glad that for the most part it's over, but it's going to be awhile for everyone to finally settle down. I hope nothing bad happens in the end.

For the past eight years gun sales went up for fears that Obama was going to take guns away, Hillary was going to abolish the 2nd amendment, survivalists stocking up, blah blah blah.

BLM starts exercising the same kooky stuff, and it's called terrorism.

Welcome to how everyone else felt when Texas was grumbling about succession, a militia group took over a wilderness wildlife refuge, etc. Yes, it can be scary when a group you don't see eye-to-eye with talks about exercising their 2nd amendment rights. Up until it turns into threats and actions, they're perfectly within their rights.

where do I even begin with this one


ok one there is a difference between simply buying a gun,
and using one while rioting
two, there is also a difference between shoot to kill and shoot to defend



what are these people defending themselves from? the cops? no, then who?

exactly, they have ALREADY turned to violence , that is the difference, you didn't like, have a redneck lives matter rioting, looting, burning shit every time a white person gets shot and killed by police -which is more often than black but that's a different debate-

People buy things while rioting?

Snark aside, they're buying guns for the same reason right-wing militias do. 'To protect themselves from those who would threaten their rights.' Defending themselves from a government that may try to strip their rights. And quite possibly in the case of BLM and the Panthers, to defend themselves from a resurgence of white nationalists.

Scary when people start reaching for their guns, isn't it?

I hope you're safe of course, but this really doesn't seem like terrorism to me. Maybe I'm just missing something but so far it seems like these guys are just more people who are gearing up for the Trump presidency like it's going to be some sort of post-nuclear apocalypse Mad Max shit. I don't see anything that connects this post to terrorism. It's stupid, misinformed and contains far too many hashtags to be taken seriously, but that doesn't make it terrorism.

The... the panthers? As in the Black Panthers? Like the group with Huey P. Newton and everything? I'm pretty sure they are not a terrorist group and none of the sources I found list them as such. :/

You talk about a political leaning as if it's some sort of monolithic organization. It's not. There are gun advocates on the left. Hell, Sanders got shit over his gun support and he's pretty far left.

As much as you doubt the legitimacy of them buying arms as defense, it's the same kind of hot rhetoric that's been floating around from conservative circles for years. I doubt it will amount to much except an even more heavily armed populace.

Since when has BLM accomplished anything without invoking fear and violence along with the occasional rioting and private and public property damages?

And isn't the right all about allowing nutjobs to stockpile all the guns they want? How's that for hypocrisy?

I don't see how you can call them terrorists though (other than 'black people with guns scare me so they must be terrorists'). There's nothing in that post about taking to the streets in armed revolt. It sounds more like a crazy survivalist warning people to arm up before the end of days.

Or you can just dress up like ghosts. Everyone knows black people are afraid of ghosts.
