More like ‘63-‘65 than ‘67-‘68

Although I assume our POTUS would accelerate us toward the latter if his election is in doubt.

There were riots in the earlier period but the defining images are of police violence and RW terrorism. Those led directly to the improbable passage of major civil rights legislation.

Same here although if you’re stuck inside the echo chamber you wouldn’t know.

I don’t know who the few percent of swingy voters could possibly be but they’re there. Swinging from where it is possible to squeak out another EC minority win to where it isn’t.

Bill Ayers is now considered right wing? And now you have Bush backing Biden. You know. That Bush that dropped the twin towers and fire a missile into the pentagon.

The Noisy Minority lives inside the bubble chamber.

In the 60`s there was a "mission statement" to the movement equal schools, buses, drinking fountains, lunchcounters.  Today do they know what they`re asking for?  Yeah yeah yeah, we`re all against police brutality, as long as we have police there will be a bad apple that sneaks through the cracks.  The only things asked for after George Floyd is slave reparations, defund police, decriminalize most laws & open up prisons, legalize drugs.  Many of those wish list items could only occur under anarchy.

I don't even remotely expect you to understand.

I'm just telling you that you're losing.

The George Floyd movement is based only on emotion and devoid of logic.   Can a movement be sustainable on wannabe Kardashian rejects?  Perhaps this will be the first time history will be ripe that it will work.   However, what competent plumber  will venture into a lawless inner city to unplug a toilet? 

In other words overwhelming the John Galt vote at the ballot box is going to create more problems than it solves.

The so called John Galt vote is 100% emotional- even if your emotional range is limited to fear and resentment.

You can take over 50% from John Galt in taxes and probably get away with it longer than one might think.  However, you take half John Galt`s money and offer him no police protection and want policies that will take 3/4ths of his income, will that be the breaking point?  Stay tuned.
