If that guy is going to broad-brush people as "racists and misogynists" then it is entirely on-point to remind everyone who he is.

I think wearing a MAGA hat now says a lot more about her character now than someone wearing blackface 20 years ago says about theirs.

I also condemn anyone that broke any laws, but itís funny how youíre not allowed to paint large groups of people with a so-called broad brush, unless itís conservatives.   Itís also interesting that the pearl clutchers now so concerned with statues monuments and businesses didnít give a damn about all of this during left wing riots and protests in 2020.  They have zero credibility.  Itís just an attempt to silence people they disagree with now.

I haven't seen you condemn any of the disruption, damage, assaults, threats caused by the convoy people. At last Graham has, you're a complete hack.

I havenít seen you condemn anything from your sides protests and riots in 2020.  You also havenít said a word about the statues destroyed like John A MacDonald.

There's **** in every crowd, and every one of these mass-disturbance protests creates a problem for somebody.

I think there's a tendency for people to rationalize/excuse/minimize the problems created by protests they're sympathetic to, while harshly critical of protests they don't support.  The people blocking the Alberta border crossing at Coutts were probably mad as hell when the native pipeline protesters disrupted rail freight in 2020, for instance.

Also you don't have to be sympathetic one way or another to see that different groups get different treatment. Pipeline protesters were met with police in tactical gear, homeless people doing nothing but camping in parks in Toronto had their stuff destroyed and were driven out by cops on horseback wielding batons. These convoy people are getting selfies with and thumbs up from the local piggies.

I donít think it does.  I guess we can agree to disagree.

I'm sorry, are you inconvenienced?  Now you know how it feels.  You're welcome.  Don't worry, though, it's only gonna be for 14 days, to flatten the curve.  Not a single day longer.

Right, you ok with other people being inconvenienced and their lives impacted, in a much greater way.  When it happens to  you for even just a few days, you lose your mind.  Lesson learned.  Perhaps you'll have a little more sympathy for people in the future.

Floyd rioters didn't organize a giant protest rally in Washington DC or Minnesota like MLK did, they went straight to the riots and looting.
There may not have been as much of this happening as you might think from media reports.

Quote
About 93 percent of the racial-justice protests that swept the United States this summer remained peaceful and nondestructive, according to a report released Thursday, with the violence and property damage that has dominated political discourse constituting only a minute portion of the thousands of demonstrations that followed the killing of George Floyd in May....

...Using media accounts and other public information, the report identified 7,750 protests from May 26 through Aug. 22 that were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement. The protests took place in 2,400 locations across all 50 states and the District...

...The group identified about 220 locations where the protests became ďviolent,Ē which authors of the report defined as demonstrators clashing with police or counterprotesters or causing property damage.

Even in those cases, however, the upheaval was ďlargely confined to specific blocks, rather than dispersed throughout the city,Ē the report states...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-united-states-is-in-crisis-report-tracks-thousands-of-summer-protests-most-nonviolent/2020/09/03/b43c359a-edec-11ea-99a1-71343d03bc29_story.html

This actually makes it sound more like an example of civil restraint considering how many thousands of protests involving millions of people across the entire nation there were.
