The protests in Georgia are fascist?
@ecfresh I'm not sure about Georgia. I want to say it was the northern states. Sorry can't find the exact article I read. I'd say a lot would be considered ultra right at least.
Likely the states where the governor is a democrat are organized by the right and states like GA where the governor is a republican they are organized by the left. That’s why CNN and MSNBC ran a lot of coverage of the Michigan protests while Fox News ran lots of coverage of the Georgia protest.
@ecfresh Too many things are taking place without our knowledge during this time. I think a lot of stuff is being hidden in legislation and I'm sure groups with their own agendas are working under the radar too. It unnerves me a bit to see what has taken place after the smoke clears.

It says "anti-lockdown protests" right in the question so isn't it pretty clear which protesters he is talking about?
My point was the answers should be consistent for both situations. Such as if you support their right to protest because it’s in the constitution then you should support both protests. If you don’t because they violate social distancing and might spread more virus then you don’t support either. What you can’t do without being hypocritical is only support one protest and not the other.Personally I believe in conditional rights and support both protests.
I'm not a big "run around with signs and protest" guy anyway but, if the current emergency orders imposed by the governor allow for public gatherings and social distancing is practiced, I have no problem with them whatever their message. If the governor's orders don't currently allow public gatherings and/or social distancing is not practiced as has been the case in every anti-lockdown protest I have seen pictures of, then I'm not OK with it. Follow what the law and the governor's orders permit. The Governor of Georgia reopened a number of businesses many of which involve close personal contact like massages, tattoos and hair dressing. So my guess would be small protest demonstrations might be allowed but I don't know for sure. I do know that the anti-lockdown protests in other states were in clear violation of what the governor ordered. So, in a nutshell, I can support one protest and not the other if one is legally allowed by the governor's declaration of a state of emergency and the other is prohibited. It's really as simple as that.Having said that, if the governor's orders DO allow for protests and public gatherings, why would you ever have people protesting that their rights to assembly and public gatherings are being taken away from them? Why would you gather to protest not being able to do something you are being allowed to do?
They would protest if it was organized and had a political motivation.
Why would you organize a protest to demand rights you already have? If you have the right to assembly and to free speech, what Constitutional rights are you protesting are being taken away from you... the right to give massages or to do someone's hair? What amendment would that be anyway? if you're going to protest that your consitutional rights are being taken away, shouldn't they have to have actually been taken away? That doesn't make any sense at all. And what does that have to do with whether or not the governor's orders allow assembly or public gatherings? Your "either you support protests or you don't" view is overly simplistic and doesn't take into account local laws as to what gatherings are permitted and what are not..
Yes it is rather simplistic and more targeted at those who will be opposed to a protest simply because they don’t agree politically.I agree with you if I thought they are motivated to protest because of the restriction of rights and in fact are violating the law of the land which supersedes those rights. But again I believe the larger protests are organized by political organizations and meant to rally either the right or left. The people protesting are doing it for one reason but the organization wants them out there for another.
Yeah, holding Trump Pence signs and waving confederate flags kind of flies in the face of saying they're just out there protesting to protect their rights.
I think if they show up to a hospital in Georgia they can’t be denied
Americans are just spoiled and entitled! Nothing else! “Righs” or “constitution” my ass. We are spoiled
Did I mention selfish?
@Powderpuff97 spoiled and selfish would sorta be the same thing
Mmm not necessarily. They definitely link to eachother but they don’t entirely have the same definition.
@Powderpuff97 all humans are stupid and selfish and we made the constitution so we don't get over powered by the government. If you don't like America you can leave when the corona thing is over.
@Powderpuff97 that's why I said sorta
Yes, a good majority of humans are selfish but I’m not referring to all humans. I’m referring to the people in the United States who only think about themselves during such a vulnerable time. Secondly, I didn’t say that I didn’t like America. I was born and raised right here in America. There’s things I don’t like about America but I’m not going to just up and leave just because I don’t like it.
@Powderpuff97 People work. they have jobs that need to be done.
Jobs more important than essential jobs?
@Powderpuff97 Essential jobs are still jobs
Yeah but essential jobs are still open. So what jobs are more important than essential jobs where protesters feel the need to go back to? Maybe I’m not understanding what you’re trying to say
@Powderpuff97 None essential jobs are still jobs that people are getting payed for. People need to buy stuff, pay rent, and all that other stuff people need to pay for with money. The Corona virus does not mean you don't have to pay for stuff. If jobs close people won't be getting payed. Besides restaurants are only letting in a certain amount of costumers in. Again, if you don't want to go out you don't have to.
Well the government provided aid for people. Non essential workers don’t have much to worry about because the government provided stimulus checks to adults and kids. Also companies etc are freezing peoples rent and other bills for a month or so until this passes. Gas is also very cheap
@Powderpuff97 How the fuck do you think they are getting money to pay for the stuff you pay?They are taking from the people who are actually working. And if you support stay at home so much, you wouldn't need to buy gas.
@Powderpuff97 Besides some companies aren't freezing there rent.
Okay woah. Let’s pause. I didn’t come at you disrespectful at all so let’s keep curse words out. I’m just having a conversation. Let’s show maturity even at 13.
with that said, you have a right to disagree with what they are doing, why they are doing it... etc. But, what they are doing should be respected. Of course, I doubt any of these people would respect someone's right to burn a flag or kneel during an anthem, but what do I know.
