  1. I commented about BS’s infantile depiction about this in the post of the day thread. Reynolds has a couple updayes:

    “Sorry, blocking the interstate is dangerous, and trapping people in their cars is a threat. Driving on is self-preservation, especially when we’ve had mobs destroying property and injuring and killing people. …

    ANOTHER UPDATE: Was just on Hugh Hewitt talking about this. Since Twitter won’t let me respond to — or even see — my critics, let me expand here.

    I’ve always been a supporter of free speech and peaceful protest. I fully support people protesting police actions, and I’ve been writing in support of greater accountability for police for years.

    But riots aren’t peaceful protest. And blocking interstates and trapping people in their cars is not peaceful protest — it’s threatening and dangerous, especially against the background of people rioting, cops being injured, civilian-on-civilian shootings, and so on. I wouldn’t actually aim for people blocking the road, but I wouldn’t stop because I’d fear for my safety, as I think any reasonable person would.

    “Run them down” perhaps didn’t capture this fully, but it’s Twitter, where character limits stand in the way of nuance.”

    • Since when has Bill ever gotten anything correct? That might be why he couldn’t hold a journalism job for more then a year or so before getting tossed out on his ass.

    • Someone else posted phone footage of a group of “protesters” shouting “They white! Get ’em!”

      Yep, that makes me feel real safe. NOT. Beginning to really, really wish I still had the Santa Fe.

      • Agree completely! I used to have an account, mostly followed some people, posted occasionally. I never posted enough to run afoul of them, but due to way too many stories like this I have now deleted my twitter handle and refuse to look at the site. As you say, they need us, we don’t need them, and I don’t need them.

        It’s turned into just one more leftist-run site that attempts to manipulate the “narrative”. I won’t be a part of it anymore.
