    ... that if brown people and lefties came out into the streets with guns they'd be met with the full force of the police state.  I'm not that brave, and I don't blame them for not being that brave either.

    We don't want to give banksters and oligarchs any excuses for their abuses of power.  Let those stand naked for the world to see.

      Want to talk about a way to fracture the Republican "big tent"

      Day One - have a bunch of well dressed white kids show up on Wall street with protest signs and a rifle over every shoulder.

      Day Two - Protesters are black.

      Day three - Protesters are non-white hispanic.

      Day Four - all of them show up wearing masks and hoodies…with guns…...

        ...on Wall Street because you'd be arrested pretty quickly for violating New York City's rather strict gun laws.

        But it would be interesting to see what would happen if a leftie group tried it in an area where open carry is legal.
