Unfortunately, this was mostly something that many people could see coming a mile away. It wasn't long after Biden had his address of congress, that Tim Scott (R, South Carolina) gave his own rebuttal.Despite my feelings about the whole address, I can't help but notice that he was making some rather good points. Doing his best to shine a light on what had already transpired in this country. That however is not the issue that I would like to shine light on. More so was the left's, or those who propose to member ardent supporters of the left on twitter. Taking to their threads and tweeting with such volume, as to have a racial slur targeting the senator trending before the hour was over.In fact "Uncle Tim" the slur in question, was allowed to trend for some time and was repeated time, and time again. Picked up by people from the lowest rung of the group, all the way to the tops of the ladder. With it being picked up by actors/actresses in Hollywood. https://nypost.com/2021/04/29/sen-tim-scott-attacked-as-uncle-tim-on-twitter-after-gop-rebuttal/The social media giant eventually stepped in and took action, especially after politicians took to calling it out for what it was. But it's clear that plenty of damage was already done by that point.
A recent Forbes article on the process that several cities are going through right now.https://www.forbes.com/sites/carlieporterfield/2021/04/20/heres-how-us-cities-prepared-for-the-derek-chauvin-trial-verdict/?sh=3b5b44714228It appears that more than a few cities are gearing up for the worst of the storm to come. Riots have been running nearly non-stop for the last few weeks, and they've only gotten worse in most cases. Over two dozen people have died, property damage in the excess of hundreds of millions has been done, and now we have direct confirmation that not only police, but national guard personnel have been attacked. As was evident from this drive-by that was witnessed in the last few days.It does not help that the current media apparatus is far too willing to capitulate to these people. Nor is it good that politicians are far too willing to throw their hat in on the side of the rioters/protestors as well. Seeing as we've just recently had both Biden and Maxine Waters chime in, doing more to escalate the problem than most would want. Worst being, is that many people who remain outspoken about the Chauvin/Floyd case, still believe information about the case that just isn't true. Thanks in part to how the media has done nothing to cover the full breath of the trials evidence.Worst of all of this was Maxine Waters coming out and making such a direct statement about the trial. Saying that Chauvin should be found guilty of murder 1, which is a charge that isn't even being put against him. Not only that, but stating that protestors should get more confrontational if Chauvin isn't found guilty. Is probably one of the most irresponsible things I've seen a politician say in a very long time. With the Judge stating that her comments could allow the defense to either call for appeal, and be justified. As the statement on Maxine's part could count as witness tampering.Now cities are preparing, preparing for the outright violence that could follow in the wake of the Chauvin trial.What are your thoughts on this issue?
As the days continue to drag on, it's growing ever more possible that Derek Chauvin may be acquitted, or at the very worst there may even be a mistrial, especially with what is going on during the current trial.We've seen the city release a massive settlement to Floyd's family, a move that the Judge worried would taint the Jury, and even lead to several of the jurors being removed.Now we have either individual citizens doing their best to get as much of the juror's personal information. As well as some news organizations that are doing their best to reveal as much of that same personal information as they can. This is compounded with the fact that we have people coming out, and espousing that Chauvin should not even have been allowed a trial. While most of the city itself is just worried about what would happen, if the trial doesn't go the way that the a activist want it to. Causing them to become violent, and threaten the city even more than they already have.
it's become apparent in the last few years, that the social elites of not only the US, but the world. Are more interested in pushing one issue, or the other, through the use of applying their own social status.This covers most issues as well, going from people like Leonardo DiCaprio. All the way to others like the more recent arrival of Colin Kaepernick.But in doing so, many of them reveal that they don't actually know exactly what it is that they're putting their voice behind, or they show that they lack more perspective than most, especially on the wider area of such issues. Be it domestic abuse, drug addiction, homelessness, or even poverty in other countries, and every other topic that are simply too numerous to count at this point.I bring this up mainly, because of the recent occurrence with LeBron James, and having his little social media spat with another world class athlete by the name of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. We know that what LeBron is doing most likely comes from a good place. Yet as it's been pointed out for him already, he seems to be missing the larger picture on this issue, and is only content to fire back at Zlatan.Many can simply remember when the issue of protestors being beaten down in China, something that is basically not a new occurrence at this point, and the manager of another team spoke out against those actions. Yet LeBron was content to chastise the manager, and not speak up on the obvious injustices that were being perpetrated by China, against it's own people.
I've been trying to address this with a few other people over the last moth, as it's come to my attention that some more advancements have been coming in the field of Nuclear power. And seeing as this has come up in the age of politicians clambering on about global warming, going green and the such. I thought that I'd get a nice gauge of just what other people thought the United State's direction should eventually be on this sort of thing.
