Unrest continues for a seventh day in former British colony


Unrest and #protests continued for a seventh straight day in the former British colony of the United States as the government vowed to use its military to end the demonstrations, #US media reported on Tuesday.

The protests began in the small province of Minnesota, located in the agrarian ‘Middle West,’ over the killing of an ethnic minority by state security forces.

Protests led by the minority ‘black’ community have erupted throughout the country with the minority group calling for equal rights and better treatment from the government. Protesters have set fire to government installations and looted buildings throughout the country as clashes with security forces continue. The security forces have tried to disperse the protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets and batons but to no avail.

US President Donald Trump, who was ‘elected’ in 2016 despite the majority of votes going to his rival candidate, vowed in a speech to bring in the military to end the protests.

“I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said in a national address.

Foreign Affairs: Unrest continues for a seventh day in former British colony
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #ambient, #art, #blm, #foss, and #music.
 
I don't know. I tend to not approve tearing down statues. Statues are something about the past. Some are reason for respect, some a reason to reflect. I think it would be much better to remain statues and annotate them with current knowledge.
Over here, in the Netherlands there are also protests for #blm. And some of those protests are pointed to statues of former Dutch sea hero's. We also know, some of those sea hero's have besides great naval victories also very dark stories tied to them. Especially when it comes to slave trade back in the 17th century, over here also referred to as the golden century.
Even though the slave trade is one of the most horrible ways of dehumanification, it did happen. It can not be erased and it will not be erased by tearing down a statue.
If we want to learn from former mistakes, we need to acknowledge those mistakes. So my call would be: let the statues be there and annotate them with both the blessings and the crimes the statue stands for.

Air Force Investigates Military Planes That Monitored Protesters


The Air Force inspector general is examining whether secretive National Guard surveillance aircraft improperly monitored demonstrators in Washington and Minneapolis.

WASHINGTON — The Air Force inspector general is investigating whether the military improperly used a little-known reconnaissance plane to monitor protests in Washington and Minneapolis this month, the Air Force said on Thursday.

The inquiry was apparently prompted by lawmakers who expressed concerns to Pentagon officials that the use of military surveillance airplanes may have violated the civil liberties of the mostly peaceful protesters demonstrating against the police killings of African-Americans. [emphasis mine]

[Which inspires the question What can these plane see?]

... In a letter last week to the House Intelligence Committee, Joseph D. Kernan, the under secretary of defense for intelligence and security, said he had received no orders from the Trump administration to conduct such surveillance, and he underscored citizens’ constitutional right to protest peacefully.

["... said he had received no orders from the Trump administration..." No orders from Trump, eh? So you're claiming this was your idea? We don't believe you.]

... most likely meant that the RC-26B, a twin-engine aircraft outfitted for electronic surveillance, would circle overhead and beam footage to the F.B.I. command center near the Chinatown area of Washington.

In tandem with the RC-26, which is used on the Southwest border to monitor illegal immigration and to counter drug smuggling in the Caribbean, an elite Special Operations unit of the Pennsylvania National Guard supported the aircraft from the ground, according to documents obtained by The New York Times. [emphasis mine]

["In tandem with..." Implies that this was a coordinated action, not a "mistake".]

Publicly, the Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, said he would not send troops to bolster President Trump’s demand for 5,000 National Guard forces in the capital.

[So "publicly" the Governor of Pennsylvania lied.]

It is unclear what the small Guard unit from Pennsylvania’s 148th Air Support Operations Squadron was doing in Washington. One military official familiar with surveillance operations said the Air Force troops would likely be directing the aircraft over the city and ensuring that it was avoiding sensitive airspace such as airport approaches.

[If this were true, then there would have been absolutely no reason for the Governor of Pennsylvania to lie about it.]

Gelled thought


A background thought for quite a while that didn't really gel into a concise statement until yesterday evening:

"Black Lives Matter" is not an assertion of special status for black people. It is a REJECTION of the attitude that black people's lives DON'T matter.


Sometimes getting through to people is all about framing the message the right way.

On the Media takes on the cops

No Justice, No Peace

In the midst of a historic week of protests, the national conversation about police is quickly transforming. This week, On the Media looks at the language used here and abroad to describe the "civil unrest" in America. Then, we explore how decades of criminal justice policy decisions brought us to this boiling point. Plus, are human beings, against all odds, actually pretty decent?

1. Karen Attiah [@KarenAttiah], The Washington Post Global Opinions Editor, on how our media would cover American police brutality protests if they were happening abroad. Listen.

2. Elizabeth Hinton [@elizabhinton], historian at Yale University, on the historical roots of American law enforcement. Listen.

3. Rutger Bregman [@rcbregman], author of Humankind: A Hopeful History, on what our policies would like if we believed in the decency of people. Listen.
Full episode (mp3).

Excellent, as per usual.
Bootnote: You might recall Bregman from his 2019 Davos appearance demanding billionaires pay their taxes or his unaired Fox News confrontation with propagandist Tucker Carlson.

Trump’s Republican enablers are complicit in the state of our democracy


By Fareed Zakaria
I have not been one to argue that the United States under President Trump is on the verge of turning into a tyranny. But it is clear that, left to his own devices, Trump would act with little regard to law, precedent or the Constitution. As president, he has shown a willingness to shut down investigations into his conduct, offer pardons to those whose lawbreaking he approves of, and punish media organizations and social media platforms that are, in his mind, biased against him.

Even many of his supporters will privately say we need not worry about Trump because his excesses are always checked. But the American system does not work through magic. It needs its other leaders — judges, bureaucrats, generals and, above all, politicians — to speak out when they see blatant abuses of power. Some have done so — most recently senior military leaders — but one gaping hole remains. That is the one inside the president’s own party.

On Monday evening, in Lafayette Square, in the shadow of the White House, police in riot gear descended upon a peaceful protest — which is explicitly protected in the Constitution — and disbanded the demonstration using force and weaponry, including pepper balls, smoke canisters and rubber bullets. The protesters were not violating a curfew or committing acts of violence. The police used brute force on law-abiding citizens so that the president could stage a photo op holding a Bible in front of a church.

When asked to comment on this dangerous abuse of governmental authority, which flashed across every news channel and website in the world, the president’s allies had this to say. Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-La.) wouldn’t comment because he “wasn’t there.” One wonders whether he will from now on comment only on world events at which he is physically present. Several senators — Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) — demurred because they “didn’t watch it closely enough,” in Romney’s words. Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) said they were late for lunch. A few Republican senators did break with the president, but others went out of their way to defend him. Ted Cruz (Tex.) — who used to describe Trump as “utterly amoral” and a “pathological liar” — said the only abuse of power was “by the protesters” themselves.

In a brilliant essay in the Atlantic, the historian Anne Applebaum reminds us that collaboration is actually quite common, while it is principled dissent that is rare. She invokes the Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz’s nonfiction masterpiece, “The Captive Mind,” which describes how collaboration provides a relief. It means no more struggle with your ideals, no more internal turmoil. Once the collaborator has come to terms with his decision, Milosz wrote, “he eats with relish, his movements take on vigor, his color returns. He sits down and writes a ‘positive’ article, marveling at the ease with which he writes it.”

Milosz could well have been describing Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, who in 2015 called Trump a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” but in 2018 announced on “The View,” with a hearty chuckle, that he no longer believed any of that. Applebaum notes that “Miłosz is one of the few writers to acknowledge the pleasure of conformity, the lightness of heart that it grants, the way that it solves so many personal and professional dilemmas.”

Explaining how Trump creates complicity, Applebaum cites a small example right from the start of his presidency. In the days after the inauguration, he decided to insist that the crowds at his ceremony were larger than any before, though the evidence clearly contradicted him. He pushed his press secretary to lie publicly and got the Park Service to alter photographs. Applebaum compares this action to the kinds of propaganda posters that the Soviet Union routinely put out, often about trivial matters, which they knew their citizens would not believe. “The point of the posters was not to convince people of a falsehood. The point was to demonstrate the party’s power to proclaim and promulgate a falsehood. Sometimes the point isn’t to make people believe a lie—it’s to make people fear the liar.”

We can see how this process has worked in the Trump presidency. It starts with the small matter of the inauguration but keeps on going. He claimed that he actually won the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally, that China pays for his tariffs, that Alabama was at risk from Hurricane Dorian, that windmills cause cancer and that he did not pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden. As president, Trump has lied or misled almost 20,000 times — and Republicans have repeated those lies, at first hesitantly, but increasingly with a “lightness of heart,” “marveling at the ease” with which they can justify their deception.

If the United States does descend further down a dark path, much blame will lie with these Republican leaders, Donald Trump’s cheerful collaborators.

We are told to keep two metres apart and yet we have the BLM protests, people gathering in parks and at the coast and massive street parties. If we do not get a second peak it will be a miracle and when we do the same people will blame the government for it.

Watch "American Carnage at Lafayette Square" on YouTube https://youtu.be/z56j06plUgs

This is my line in the sand. I'm crying right now. I have been already at other events, but this one shakes me to the core of my soul. As a white person, if you cannot find sympathy or empathy at the violence being carried out against fellow Americans because they don't look like you.. then what of this? What about when it is people that look like you? What if it is violent attacks to Australian reporter and cameramen, to the clergy of a church? Where are the ones saying they'd defend against tyrannical government or uphold religious freedom? If you can defend that President now and support him, please remove yourself from my life. If you can watch this and still not be moved to tears, fear, horror and anger then I want nothing to do with you. I am done. This is about all of us.

To Canada, don't pretend you're not guilty of systemic abuse against groups of people, especially indigenous or PoC. Be horrified. But fight to make Canada better and not just the slightly less worse racists. That goes to everyone wherever you are in the world.

However, this? This is tyranny. This is the type of event in the past started wars and coups and brought allied forces fighting together. We are no better than anyone else. America has fallen.

Qualified Immunity Explained

... Ordinary people—whether they’re doctors, lawyers, or construction workers—are expected to follow the law. If they violate someone else’s legal rights, they can be sued and required to pay for the injuries they’ve caused.

Under the doctrine of qualified immunity, public officials are held to a much lower standard. They can be held accountable only insofar as they violate rights that are “clearly established” in light of existing case law. This standard shields law enforcement, in particular, from innumerable constitutional violations each year. In the Supreme Court’s own words, it protects “all but the plainly incompetent or those who knowingly violate the law.” It is under this rule that officers can, without worry, drag a nonthreatening, seven months pregnant woman into the street and tase her three times for refusing to sign a piece of paper. ...
