scenes 7:45 - Really like this comment:
"We need to separate the paid agitators from the peaceful marchers!"
The punch line to that old joke was 'crowbars' but I'll bow to the higher wisdom of the various leftists that post here from time to time.

So the Seattle PD are going to have to use the old 'scalp massager'?
Well - they were told not to use pepper spray.
No violence here - just setting fire to an occupied building.
Burn Baby, Burn!
Biden has this all under control - yessir!

GeorgeR: "The silence of the (leftist) lambs."

...and who can blame them. Trump is so evil, in some yet unspecified way, that he and his people must be pushed aside, dominated, even decimated as a warning to the others. It's hard to admit that you like the idea of a federal courthouse being burned to the ground, it would keep those flyover states in line.

There's certainly different ways that the play can conclude. A shrinkage of the fedgov and a growth of a state federation (I doubt it)? A Singapore-style system of harsher but fairly enforced laws that keep a cap on an ethnic war (probably doesn't scale)? or simply ever-spiraling aggression between interest groups run by an isolated plutocracy (perhaps the natural state of affairs)?

There never was any reason to believe that an increasingly diverse population would share enough social glue to keep a state in one piece. Stripping off the ballyhoo of patriotism was just the last straw of many.

I'm not sure how they'd be able to shoot the folks trying to permanently blind the Federales without a profound escalation, and most people at the moment are laughing at the prospects, thinking the damage to their optical nerves will go away in a minute or two.

Right now, if there are Federal police who have been blinded, expect them to be trotted out to share their story.
