Bravery?

She joined with the crazies who, according to your article, we’re “throwing rocks, bottles and pieces of metal” at police.  If you read further, you’ll see that rioters physically barricaded police inside a building, simultaneously shooting fireworks into that building.  And it’s not just police:

Quote
A street preacher was violently assaulted and carried away by a mob. A witness at the scene said that a gun had been pulled on him. The witness also said that another man was tied to a fence, beat, and then had the fence pushed over on top of him.

These are terrorists, and you’re celebrating them.  It’s sickening.

I was talking about this woman. Yes, very brave.

The woman aligned with terrorists?

What’s brave about her?  The police weren’t acting aggressively and weren’t using ammunition.  Police eventually left the area to ensure her safety.  They should have arrested her for obstructing justice.

The brave people are the cops putting their lives on the line against violent terrorists.

She obviously wasn't armed!

You all know a lot more about this woman than I do.  So far she’s a courageous, attention-craving, terrorist.

I realize that blogs are intended (to some extent) for free-flowing unsubstantiated opinion, but you folks know nothing about this woman.   Yet you think you got her motives nailed down. Other than 15 minutes of naked yoga, you don’t know a single thing this woman has done in her life.

Isn’t bigotry, prejudice and racism in large part precisely about jumping to conclusions without sufficient information? 

Interesting story and obviously speculation about motive makes sense and would be expected.  But you aren’t speculating, you are concluding.  I guess the problem is more likely that I haven’t adapted yet to a world where lead-ins like “I think she may be” or “I wonder if” aren’t necessary.

There’s certainly enough information to tell us which side she’s aligned with.

To be clear, you are saying every protester in Portland is a terrorist?  If so, I understand your conclusion about her.

Lol.  “Understand” away up there on your high horse while you put words in the mouth of we poor plebeians.

Why don’t you do some reading about what was going on before lecturing the rest of us.  Is “to be clear” one of those equivocal phrases that you like to use that makes you better than anybody else?

No. It was an honest question. I’m aware of the violence in Portland. And I don’t consider myself to be smarter than you / in fact I usually think the opposite.

To me, leading questions that articulate a position never taken by the other person in a conversation tend not to be neither sincere nor helpful, especially when followed up by a judgmental comment.  But water under the bridge.

To be clear (haha) the group immediately behind this woman has spent several weeks committing arson, assaulting police and destroying property.  That night in particular terrorists were barricading police in a federal courthouse while shooting fireworks into the building.  On the street, they were hurling rocks and projectiles at police.

If somebody is cheering and encouraging those people and providing them support, what would you call them?

I see it like this.  If you go to a Celtics / Lakers game and boo the Lakers, that’s your right as a Celtics fan.  If you make rude signs and chant, fine.

But, if you lock the Lakers in their lockerroom, shoot fireworks in there, and pelt them with projectiles, you’re at best a violent criminal.  People who cheer you on while not actively participating in the violent activity are pretty crappy human beings themselves.
