    Great stuff from Hunter S. Thompson. Thank you.

    This/\ plus trump, doris, cummins etc could lead one to conclude that the only reason to avoid criminality is the risk of prosecution and that any feelings of moral compunction to do the right thing and set a good example could be considered naive.... The Kray twins were no more morally bankrupt than Trump and ultimately caused infinitely less harm.

    I liked the comment from one of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers: "I in no way approve of Trump even whistling any piece of music associated with our band. I hope that's clear enough."

    Whilst in no way supporting these two, the full video of this shows the protestors going through a private gate, across large manicured grounds and approaching the front of the mansion that is in view in the picture. Violence was apparently offered to this - clearly very wealthy - couple. In the US, they are probably showing restraint by not opening fire rather than being the bigots they are being portrayed as.

    Comment offered only in the spirit of fair reporting.

    Good thread on that here. White establishment America is scared. Good. It should be.
    Big stochastic terrorist response energy here.

    Reportedly, the husband of the couple said they feared for their lives that at any minute they'd be murdered and their pets killed.

    Their fear corresponds to the drumbeat of right wing propaganda, that deamonizes protestors and the BLM movement. Quoting Tucker Carlson: “This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives, and remember that when they come for you,"

    I am amazed the wife managed not to trigger a shot. The level of fear and insanity in these guilty fat cats is incredible.

    Part of the problem is right here - images can show all kinds of things and the past few posts, mine included, demonstrate that nicely. We can’t possibly know what was in her mind, what her background is, her level of intelligence and understanding of the issues or anything else for that matter.

    What we can determine is that there is a huge mess in the US and that trouble is brewing unless someone can get some sense instilled. Trump is not that someone.

    Agree, it's hard to tell what's going on from a few images; however, they vividly demonstrate the fear that underpins and fuels US society at the moment.

    Indeed, but I think C-19 has focussed their minds.

    The US is ****ed - there's a Corvid-19 bush-fire raging through the country & no co-ordinated effort to put it out - mainly because of the administration's incompetence & lack of interest in doing the work that's necessary. It's the GOP's lack of interest in doing the work of governing - seen in everything Trump does or doesn't do - he has no interest in the work required of a President.

    Who knows where the a racism protests will end up - it didn't change much in 1968 US - will 2020 be any different there?

    This will destroy the economy for the rest of 2020 & the death rate & Trumps poll numbers will only get worse. He will be caught between a rock & a hard place - face the most humiliating defeat in the election or resign in advance of this humiliation.

    He will resign with some deal made & try to spin it as a victory - it's the only option he will have some control over but he won't resign yet - he will only resign when the country is so ****ed that it will be beyond fixing - it will take many years, maybe even a decade to recover.

    I suspect the family name Trump will enter the language as the definition of a person bereft of any positive traits - just cowardice, incompetence, ineptitude, morally vacuous, criminality & many other negative personality traits

    Those are remarkable images. I think if she pulled the trigger she’s as likely to hit her husband or a passing car as anyone in front of her. Also if your going to come out shooting it’s best to put some shoes on. It looks like a scene from a George Romero film.

    It was quite nice to see Rhys Ifans there with the protestors.

    They look hopeless with firearms, like they’d taken them out for the first time since they bought them ten years ago. One of them’s going to lose a toe.

    A cornered Trump is dangerous. The more stress he's under the more impulsive he gets + he thinks the rules don't apply to him = who knows what but it won't be good for the US (and possibly the world). If he decides to go early (or loses the election), I hope he does so quietly and legally per your post.
