Domanda un po' strana forse, ma visto che oggi è il 20 luglio: che ne pensi di tutta la faccenda di Carlo Giuliani?

tldr che tra poco devo uscire:

  • il g8 all’epoca era stato organizzato da schifo in primo luogo
  • ovviamente non esiste che ci sia scappato il morto, cioè il concetto che ci sta un g8 e tra le proteste muore qualcuno è da paese incivile
  • detto ciò secondo me la vera porcata è stata la diaz tra tutto quello che è successo
  • cioè parliamoci chiaro, il tipo che ha ucciso giuliani era più giovane di lui, aveva palesemente ammesso che era il peggio tiratore della sua squadra (PERCHE’ MANDI AL G8 VENTENNI CHE NON SANNO MIRARE uno si chiede) e s’è visto venire quello con l’estintore, che è stato un incidente del tipo peggiore mi pare abbastanza chiaro e tbh mi pare che tutte le sentenze siano state piuttosto corrette - cioè era vero che l’organizzazione e la gestione del caso è stata penosa e quindi la famiglia aveva diritto al risarcimento, ma era probabilmente legittima difesa e per quanto il carabiniere non sia proprio la persona meglio del mondo non è che posso anda a dire che ha ammazzato uno a sangue freddo perché è entrato palesemente in panico
  • la schifezza vera è stata la scuola diaz, non giuliani, perché quello è stato un incidente nel bene e nel male, alla diaz so proprio entrati menando/torturando gente che stava li a dormire e sinceramente il fatto che non c’era il reato di tortura all’epoca è un’altra schifezza che mi viene il vomito solo a pensarci
  • tutta la gestione del g8 è tipo la cartina di tornasole dello schifo che era stato il primo governo berlusconi che ovviamente MILITARIZZIAMO TUTTO PERCHE’ SIA MAI e intanto organizziamo la cosa in maniera penosa come tutto quello che hanno fatto

poi boh su giuliani come persona non ho mai avuto ste grandissime opinioni e sinceramente non sono sta gran simpatizzante delle forze dell’ordine quando si danno al MENIAMO PERCHE’ SIAMO MILITARI e al loro peggio ma sto genere di protesta dove distruggi tutto e metti a fuoco le città pure mi sta sul cazzo quindi ovviamente questo non sarebbe dovuto morire di principio ma opinioni più profonde in merito non ne ho se lasciamo stare quello, ma comunque continuo a dire che la cosa peggio di quel g8 è stata la diaz senza appello

I see my online fellows being told they are on the wrong side of history for being skeptical of these protests when there is a history of these protests leading to nothing since 2001. Occupy Wallstreet, Mothers Against the Iraq War (who supported Democrats that voted for the War), the G8 protesters who let police infiltrate them. and the Impeach Bush crowd that later supported John Kerry withered away in quick succession.

Forget the edge lord bloggers who like to use slurs for a second. I don’t count these people as being anything more than attention seekers.

I don’t believe the people I follow who are skeptical of these protests are against rights for women, ethnic minorities, gay rights, and trans rights. Not one bit. They for the last eight years of Obama’s presidency called him out for supporting dictators, Isis, and torturing Chelsea Manning.

The fact they are not rushing in to something is not a sign of anything other than they have burned by activism before. The kind of activism that called Ron Paul racist when he was firing warning signs about state power since the 1980s or the kind of activism was silent for eight years.

I am not going to live in fear of imaginary Nazis. I am not going worship Trump. I am good live my life as a good person and trust that people are good. I will gladly protest with people who love liberty and freedom. But I do not know if I want to throw my chips in with some of these protesters just yet unless I see the relinquishment of the idea that Democrats are the answer.

amtep  asked:

If white people are joining a peaceful protest and trying to make it violent, it would be really good to check if they are undercover cops looking to create excuses for more police violence. It's happened before, like at the G8 protests.

it honestly would not surprise me at all if that were the case.
