Taking a knee
    #26714199 - 06/02/20 04:03 PM (1 month, 8 days ago)

It seems like a lot of police officers are taking a knee to show solidarity with protesters.  My first thought on taking a knee is of submission.  I think I understand culturally the symbolism in taking a knee so I can imagine how it might seem like an act of unity, but I don’t agree with appeasing a mob by taking a knee.  The act was originally a protest of the National Anthem.  A small act like this does not change anything imo.  It’s an act of submission.  People that are destroying cities and being violent are telling law enforcement to bend the knee to them.  I don’t think it’s an organic gesture by law enforcement nor do I think it’s organic by the protesters.  It’s a power play.  Are we all expected to bend the knee if someone tells us to and if we don’t we are racist?

In this video, someone is claiming to be from BLM and they are telling a white woman to take a knee.   
What would you do if you were told to take a knee?

As long as we aren’t at an NFL game  , on Sunday , listening to the natl anthem while the blue angles are flying over our heads I’m down . Otherwise I’m choking you out with an American flag if you say that to me .

After negotiations fail the only other option is war.
I often wonder if our pro narcissistic culture will allow peace it at this point.
This is what gives me the heeby geebees about this whole situation. :oogle:

Yeah, it's always good for a man to single out a lone woman and bully her. That woman was scared of him

The guy in that video did a good thing


I wonder why he didn't run up on a another man or group of men and try that?


Get down on your knees, Sean. I got something for you

I meant the police taking a knee not the BLM guys. Sorry I didnt make that clear. But a guy named mighty white is always going to be looking for a racial argument, and is always gonna be looking for an excuse for another man to suck his tiny dick lol.

Ya I thought it was pretty clear that you were talking about the officers
taking a knee video referenced in the op.

Some people are always looking for confrontation

It's an empty gesture to me. Leave your guns at home and join the march if you actually give a shit. I've heard quite a few stories of cops who took a knee going on to beat the shit out of protesters only hours later.

Goddamnit, how fucking stoned are you guys? THERE IS NO COP TAKING A KNEE IN THE OP's VIDEO. There is a man bullying and intimidating a woman, and to you that guy in the video is "doing a good thing"?

Sean, I'm not looking for a racial argument. Did I say anything about anyone's race or skin color?

It is very obvious that MW didnt read the op and instead jumped straight to the video.

@MW- all you have to do is read the 1st sentence. Not that hard

What is in the shit you guys are smoking?
It's very obvious you only read the first sentence and jumped straight to the video

I read OP"s post - fucking great, woohoo, cops seem to be taking a knee. THAT DOES NOT HAVE A FUCKING THING TO DO WITH THE VIDEO, Nate.

DID YOU READ OP's LAST TWO GODDAMN SENTENCES? It's not that hard.

we know it like the sky, inexpressible, unimaginable,
fundamentally ever fresh and pristine.

OP's post is comparing a video of cops taking a knee to the video in the post of the BLM guy. Im talking about the video of cops taking a knee, youre just fixated on the video he used as an example of knee taking being submissive. What is it youre smoking? My comprehension skills can be shotty, but damn.....
