Going as far as purposely calling the entire Police Brutality movement going on right now "just a bunch of rioters". Do they think these thousands of people, across 12 states, are just one giant hive mind? Everyone in the protests have their own individual end-goal, so to generalize them as "all rioters" seems to have big classist/racist undertones.
Hell even some of my close friends literally see nothing wrong with the borderline Order 66-esque, dystopian, Big Brother-type government response we've been seeing these past few months since Trump has been in office. I've never been one to play the race card, but damn there seems to be a lot of stereotypical white folks across social media trying to defend the current US Gov't.
I find it interesting how the gun-toting, tread on me and get shot, hardheaded, 2nd amendment yelling far Right folks are willing to show their bellies in a time when this country needs a wake up call more than ever. It will be kinda funny to see how these people will last, or even adapt to a tyrannical rule.
I'm not even a Leftist/Rightist, i'd say just let it all burn so we can rebuild CORRECTLY. But obviously our government will never be uprooted and replanted correctly, so we have to live with corruption for the rest of our days.
Trump and Pence give off big time dictator powerplay-anyone-who-opposes-me vibes
Biden is unaware of his surroundings 95% of the time, and seems to be just a plant for a rather short-sighted Harris (who's no better than most republicans mind you) to take over in under 4 years time.
So it's essentially a lose/lose.
I'd much rather have Palpatine then Trump. When Palpatine took civil liberties he made you think you were better off unless you directly apposed him.
