1. I'm sure all the workers who lost pay due to being late for work will thank them.

2. This just happened at 8:00 PM

And is probably already over. I assume a small number wanted to be arrested as an act of civil disobedience.

5. Have they thanked the slaves who worked, for free, for over 200 years to build the South?

 


Seems like they could be inconvenienced a few hours, simply out of respect. Especially if the state is going to allow its property to bolster the racist philosophies of the people who celebrate the losers and the loss of that war.

8. Disrupting daily life is kind of the point of civil disobedience.

10. Difference between lunch counter & Interstate: first is civil, second is not.

A disrupted lunch counter or a hundred disrupted lunch counter is civil disobedience. Many people are inconvenienced, but inconvenienced only. Some wait staff may lose tips, but even that might be compensated for in a well-planned event.

However, shutting down interstates interferes with emergency personnel, pregnant women in labor, truckers who may lose hundreds or thousands of dollars, and small/medium companies depending on the timely flow of goods.

The latter is not cool. Those organizers need to rethink what they are doing.

For example, they would get just as much publicity if they flash-mob shutdown an intersection downtown mid-day for 5 minutes, and then 5 minutes later flash-mobbed another one and so on for a few hours.

16. You have to wait for someone to die before it becomes an issue?

 

Using that logic, if I make it home drunk driving but manage not to hit anyone I should be left alone.

19. You replied "There's no 'going to'... That ship has sailed..." to "They're going to end up"

I thought you were referring to something that had happened.

18. That is the point

If the government wants people to stop blocking interstates, they should do something about the shootings.

3. Update

Film now online. All peaceful. Police closed Interstate as precaution and rerouted traffic. Apparently not arresting anyone as long as they don't block the roads, but there are a lot of cops on the scene. Good thing is Colymbia has an AA mayor and police chief.

14. Tthere is nothing like reading too fast and jumping too quickly, is there? rofl

 

If you read it again, you will notice that I am saying the people who hung the flag are trying to push the burners into destroying things - JUST LIKE ISIS - because they think the resulting race war will bring them a better life.

So they would like nothing better than to see someone attack the thing with a blow torch.

On the other hand, if you just want to argue, I haven't the time.
