Hate to say this, but no riots here .

Oddly, no riots in most of the country.

But watching the news...

Hair on fire!!!!

I'm trying to understand if this is a revolution or a media flamed event.

6. Protests are only happening in big urban areas where lots of Democrats are

 

Republicans are out in the suburbs and in small towns. You can hear a pin drop in those places.

13. How is it going to hurt Republicans?

 

I seriously doubt Republicans care.

No one seems to care other than 24 hour cable news and a few urban areas of the country.

That's not going to hurt Republicans.

Everyone wants to call this a "revolution." How is this a "revolution?" Nothing is going to change. Prosecutors are simply not going to prosecute cops because they rely on cops to win their other cases. And nobody is demanding any alternatives.

19. Republicans work downtown and are blocked from getting home.

They will be energized to turn out and vote.

Many Democrats will be turned off, and will stay away from the polls.

It goes without saying what Independents will do.

7. If I based every decision on that metric

 

I wouldn't ever brush my teeth, because "I should be out
canvassing for Democrats or doing voter registration in
Democratic areas.

HINT: every decision in life should be made "on it's own merits", rather
that if it "helps or hurts Democrats re-election chances.

4. The Revolution may not be televised,

 

but it will likely be hyped by M$M obsessively seeking higher ratings.

which ls one main reason we even know WTF happened during the 60s.

11. The protests in NY were largely peaceful

And the cops behaved fine. There were some incidents, but nothing close to hostility overall. Fox is making stuff up.

15. There will be no revolution

The populace will sit and watch protests on their tv (if The Signal deigns to cover them) and they'll grumble to their wife or kids and then they'll change the channel. The revolution will not happen, may never happen, because tv feeds the plebs the mind-numbing pablum that keeps them asleep, dreaming of being a contestant on a game show.

18. This is no revolution.

When I see voting patterns change, when I see politicians picking up this topic and running for office on it, then I'll know a significant portion of the country cares.

Until then, it's only on the news because it creates ratings. When the public bores of the topic, the media will stop covering it and then it'll all die away.
