That's not really what's being protested here.

Okay then. That's why they spraypaint 'kill capitalism' on buildings.

according to their majesty's at CNN
its protesting against globalism and globalists


The hell happened to you?

No really, I remember you generally being pretty sensible in the past but now all you post is garbage like this with so much wrong with it I don't even know where to start.

At least I can say uncletim was right on the money.


because I have given up, afterbeing called stupid, retarded, racist, islamophobic, transphobic so many times why should I be sensible
edit: oops my bad, it was fox who said it
sounded like similar propaganda bs that I couldn't tell the difference
im demonized in rl by my family and am cornered in public by them , when THEY bring up shit and force me into a conversation about whatever, politics, racial tensions, etc
"you can have your opinion, its fine, I respect it " edit : added what was actually said instead of just shortening it
behind my back to my mother " WE didn't teach you guys to be like this, this isn't how WE want you to be" jesus Christ im a individual
but imracist islamophobic blah blah to these ppl for simply having a different view, not actually being any of those things
and that last sentence applies to ppl on here too


>> Hey Redo I hear yeah don't let them get to you, your family or people on the outside some days going be rough
if you have God on your side your going be fine I have shitty days like this mostly look where i live the blue state
where if you even wear a "Make America Great Shirt your likely to beat up" some sad times that others can't have a different opinion.
I have been around a long time seen a lot shit some never want see ever again! I wish i could back before cell phones seriously or times when things where better around me
what's going on around us in this world is going to become worse {{shakes head}} I just do my best to get by- I do think the millennials need some history lessons on what it was like for us that where raised in another time? where manners mattered talk was more common and have a view different from others you where not frowned on! simple things that so many have forgotten over time... sorry for this long rant but like i was saying don't let others get you down brush yourself off! and keep a postive outlook on things. If you need a friend to talk to you can message me.

Thanks for cutting out the part of my post that actually explains the reality of the situation. It really helps make both you and your unsourced image of an English graffiti apparently resulting from a protest in Germany look credible. All the protests are against capitalism confirmed!

Look, the G8 and G20 is basically a call to arms to every anarchist, extremist, anti-establishment, anti-government, hell anti-anything that they don't like to gather in one place and cause hell for a week while the big wigs meet and discuss how they want to run the world for the next year or so.

Putting any more thought into it then that is literally giving people out there too much credit.

I'm sure there are those that go out and try to protest peacefully and there are those that believe they are doing good but unfortunately for everyone, it gets hijacked by assholes with a grudge to burn and everyone just ends up covered in shit. The police are covered in shit, the protesters, everyone.

"I know they are holding up kill capitalism signs, but there might be somebody who also cares about the environment while they burn trash so, they are not protesting capitalism"

Also Reuters disagrees.


Anti-capitalist militants front anti-G20 demo in Hamburg: police

And the context in which you're using that gif is ironic as fuck.

I wonder how many of the antifa "protestors" are aware of what they are actually protesting.

Oh, that's rich.

You may as well just say what you mean, octo: if someone agrees with you, regardless of how inane and irrational your position, they are "sensible", but if they disagree, despite having ample reason to, they are posting "garbage".

Nope, no ideological mental block there, nosiree.

I highly doubt it


For all 5 people who don't hate trans people since they seem correlated they are upset how 20 countries horde all the money in the world
Riots are a way for to get your voice out cause lord knows Trump doesn't listen to anyone other than Steve Bannon and that weird racist Cacodemon in his bathroom
I contend that the cry of "black power" is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we've got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard
Also you're cheering at water cannons wow if we were all in the 60s you would be the people complainging about Dr. King blocking highways and rioting. By your standards he would be rioting the term is used to say we don't like the protest(the distinction between peace and no peace is if the powers that be agree) http://agoodcartoon.tumblr.com/post/150463485250/mlk-and-civil-rights-protests-in-cartoons-then
https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0115/Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-8-peaceful-protests-that-bolstered-civil-rights/Bloody-Sunday-1965


I don't even know where to start with you....

It is literally impossible to "horde all the money". Money is an abstract concept. It is a value assigned to a currency, the value of which is based directly upon the industrial and trade output of the nation issuing the currency. If a nation wants more money, they have only to produce more output. Literally impossible for "20 countries to horde it all". What, are you envisioning some giant Scrooge McDuck vault full of coins or something?

Not going to touch the racial identitarianism argument with a 20 foot pole, thanks. Your worldview seems to me a bit... skewed.

No, there's really no ideological mental block involved in saying that bullshit is bullshit, sorry to burst your bubble..
