These dudes are praying they end up in a white-ass New Hampshire prison.
Whole lotta Twitter whiplash going on right now.
Yes, they deserve to rot in jail, but “crackers“?? Really?
I think “crackers” is pretty appropriate in this instance.
Is the N-word appropriate to describe Darrell E. Brooks, who drove through the Waukesha Christmas parade, killing 6 people? How about the milder version of the word, you know, the one with an “a” at the end?
Talk about your false equivalencies.
Is the milder version of the n-word (with an “a” at the end) really any worse than “cracker”?
Raper any better than Rapist? Either way you did it
Good Thursday! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/94ed7b02cef945693d46503fa93e7b6ea00ca1272c755b2aade4915e48e71bfa.png
“ Talk about your false equivalencies.”
The history and baggage of the words aren’t equivalent, but the impulse to race-essentialize and denigrate by skin colour is the same. The lazy impulse to trade in tribalist rhetorical bullshit IS equivalent. Are you suggesting that isn’t the case? That someone saying “cracker” has a more morally upright cause for using the word?
“The history and baggage of the words aren’t equivalent”
The very fact that you can’t even write the word down should answer your question for you.
Just call him a Cunt.
“Crackers” means “ignorant rural dumbshits.”
Take out the word “rural”. Plenty of Crackers in the NYPD- start with Pat Lynch.
Nobody seems to know its origins. It has the potential to mean ‘joke around’ ‘jokers’ from the Irish ‘Craic’.
Ask the people who use it as a slur, to what they mean.
We call them as they are Rapist
What do you call such a STUNNING chin? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/94ed7b02cef945693d46503fa93e7b6ea00ca1272c755b2aade4915e48e71bfa.png
Wells is right — things really *are* better in Putin’s Russia!
The party of “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” now faps to pictures of a former KGB chief
Are you sure?
It’s a strange thing: liberals have a wildly inaccurate idea of what’s happened between us and Russia over the last few years, but if you try to correct their misapprehension then they think you’re supporting Trump.
The only way that most conservatives concern themselves with Russia is by making fun of all the nutty stuff that liberals say about Russia.
Soooo….the same “broken” justice system that the other day scandalously let Klye Rittenhouse get of free works again, right center left Democrats?
It’s a state-by-state, region-by-region thing…luck of the draw.
Anyone who is half-literate in how the criminal justice system works in this country knew Rittenhouse would likely be acquitted. I find him and his actions reprehensible, but carrying a gun to a tinderbox is not illegal, and the evidence that he was in fact defending himself was persuasive. It also didn’t help that the prosecutors were typically, predictably overzealous, nor that the judge in this case chose to do what judges should ALWAYS (but rarely) do, which is call out prosecutors on their overreach.
The biggest travesty here is that the court’s treatment of the prosecution, although objectively correct, would have certainly not been the same if Rittenhouse had been black.
In other words, they got it right in this case, but that only serves to further underscore the racial disparity and bias that runs rampant in our justice system.
Kyle’s crime, to 50% Americans outside the court room ,was being white.
No need to bother us with your other ‘what ifs’ .
America is broken due to there being equal and opposite reactions to the Marxists sweeping the country. Thank god America is broken and divided. The alternative doesn’t bare thinking about.
Did your parents have any kids that lived?
If your post were any lazier you’d be complaining about its food stamps.
Welcome to HE newbie
Meanwhile, little Kyle is going around celebrating with the likes of D.J.Trump and who knows who else. Since he’s been known to pal around with Proud Boys and make the QAnon sign for a photo op, he’s clearly going for broke now.
Looks to me like the system worked. Rittenhouse was squarely in the grey area (probably closer to not guilty), so it could’ve gone either way. It was pretty clear that these losers murdered the Arbery kid, so they got what they deserved.
I agree, but tell that to the left…
That’s like saying My Lai was a shining example of military justice because Calley was eventually court-martialed. Tell Arbery’s mother that the 74 days she had to wait for her son’s murderers to be charged, only after the video was leaked, was the system working.
If that video hasn’t been leaked it’s very likely they would never have been charged. Three prosecutors refused to charge them, then the video that they had in their possession got to the press. Lot of shenanigans
That was the reason why it got quite a bit of coverage last year as the fishy backstory unfolded.
Yes. If that idiot hadn’t filmed it, they would almost certainly have gotten away with it.
The two trials make a nice yin yang about vigilante justice. Years of messaging that a piece makes you superior to a trained police officer has resulted in noobs and amateurs strapping up and going to town, and almost like clockwork they get in over their heads and people end up dead.

“Okay, No Riots”
God, the implications of that…
Have you noticed the people behind the riots that have ruined BLMs cause are all white? Either rich media CEOs and management, or mentally ill criminals.
There will be no justice until sensible black people can help set the media narrative
