Violence & uprisings- links

So many of the lines that people spout about the current uprising in the US are bullshit. The point has been well made that the very same people who recommend peaceful protest instead condemned Kapernick et al. oddly it was JFK who said- “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” Or as Martin Luther King, a favorite source of quotations for armchair liberals who like taking things out of context,said- “A riot is the language of the unheard”.

I don’t think people have any idea of the scope of lawless violence that is being directed against the protesters, so I wanted to share this collection of links someone shared on Reddit. I can’t vouch that they’re all accurate, but you can judge for yourself.
