    I saw the same info earlier on twitter, allegedly posted by a street medic who was trying to help him. Fucking stupid if true

    I got some cash to spend on first aid or similar courses. If you’re keen to do one, or get a refresher, reach out via PM and let’s get something happening.

    There are enough confirmed cases of police leaving people without medics and attacking medics that I believe it.

    It was Fred Hampton’s birthday yesterday. Fred was the chair of the Chicago Black Panthers and assassinated by the fascist police state. He scared the fuck out of them, because he understood that the people needed to come together.

    the police are still so scared of him that they regularly shoot up his gravestone, as if by doing that they're making sure he stays dead. they were so scared of him back in the day that they busted into his home in the middle of the night and shot him dozens of times before he even could get out of bed, where he had been sleeping next to his pregnant girlfriend. i don't think it's ever been confirmed, but a rumor i have no trouble believing is true is that the police had a spy in the panthers drug him the day before they killed him, so he'd have no hope of resisting

    they pulled out all the fuckin' stops to murder fred hampton

    Oh, I didn't consider this at all. Oof. That makes it so much worse.

    liberals are unable to effectively fight fascism because by the time the fascists get bad enough that it occurs to them that they need fighting against, political and social systems are already fundamentally, unfixably broken, and the main basic tenet of liberalism is that while reforms might be needed in some areas, even drastic ones, the fundamentals of our civilization are strong. if the flaws that cause this shit are in the bones of a civilization, liberalism doesn't have an answer for it

    the idea that the problems begin and end with trump and once he's out of office things will improve is horrifically dangerous. strategically it's probably the right call on biden's part to take that tack, but there's not any reason to think he doesn't also personally believe it

    Sure would be nice if they could let people know exactly what time it's cool with their electoral strategy for people to demand cops be held accountable for murder and attempted murder.

    The one twitter bot I might support is one that just posts "white moderates want peace, not justice" to every one of Biden's.

    "don't react to centuries of brutal systemic violence in the only way that will ever get the attention of the authorities, if you do that then the current face of that violence will stay in power and do more of it" would be a lot easier to stomach if every single time it wasn't followed up with "also we don't really see centuries of brutal systemic violence as a problem, and have no intention of doing anything about it if we take power"

    the blue checkmarks wringing their hands about property damage don't give a fuck about police brutality, they want everyone to passively take it so they can keep pretending we're culturally in good shape

    on the topic of blue checkmarks:

    Watched video.

    First, too many people surrounding the dude, crowding the medic.

    Second, police push the crowd away and make no attempt to verify the medic (my sound off).

    Third, after the police push the crowd away, there are people in the back attending to the man, but I cannot see from the video if they are performing active triage or just looking at the fellow.

    All in all, while the protesters were not the model of precision on footage, there were medics on attempting to triage him, which was interrupted by police, and whenever the deceased did start getting triage, it was after precious seconds were taken away by the police.

    It makes me sad that a lot of centrists are going to miss the point Oliver made about Biden not being the answer to racism in America, let alone any meaningful change.

    And when that gets brought up to them they will say, "but he talked about voting down ballot, which is what we've been talking about."

    Which will make me even sadder because they will continue to ignore the lack of candidates or support from party leadership for leftist candidates.

    "It's your fault for not voting, not our fault for failing to support your candidates post primary."

    Edit - Centrists are victim blamers.

    I liked that vid, but I think Oliver actually intentionally soft pedaled the lack of candidate options, and the degree to which Biden will be unhelpful. He could have made that point much stronger.

    I think that's probably the subject of a larger video (that they probably wouldn't do, honestly), but the important message there still works, which is that voting only helps so much, and even in a best case scenario with the coming election, there will still be work to be done
