Hi everyone! This is going to be a short little rant, in light of the demonstrations that are currently going on tonight around the country. There are just a few points that I want to make (or introduce you to – if you are not familiar with them).
#1: Live Stream
People are out there on the streets in droves in this day and age running Live Streaming video of all of these protests. Watch them.
They are volunteers. They get no pay nor benefits. They barely get bathroom breaks or sleep. They are out there to show you first-hand what is (and isn’t) going on in real time. There are no edits – just raw data streaming. They can serve as protection for the people out there as well as the police and other emergency workers.
There are millions of people watching Live Streams of the protests that are going on right now. Are you one of them? If not, and you are interested, all you have to do is to type into your Google Search (or whatever search you use) the words “Live Stream” (or “U Stream”) and the city you want to see. There will be a list of them that come up – you can choose which one you like the best. Or go back and forth between several (that’s what I do).
#2: Agent Provocateurs
They do exist. Keep that in mind at all times.
An agent provocateur (French for “inciting agent”) is an undercover agent who acts to entice another person to commit an illegal or rash act or falsely implicate them in partaking in an illegal act. An agent provocateur may be acting out of own sense of nationalism/duty or may be employed by the police or other entity to discredit or harm another group (e.g., peaceful protest or demonstration) by provoking them to commit a crime – thus, undermining the protest or demonstration as whole.
#3: MSM Spin
Don’t take what you see on mainstream media too seriously. They all have a “spin” to put on the stories (if not out-and-out lies). I think it’s better to get the raw data from the Live Streams.
That’s it! Happy protesting! Let’s stand up for freedom in America, what do you say?
Love! Love! Love!
