Mother Jones Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: When Blocking Traffic, Disruption Is the Point

Meme screenshot

At least they're admitting what most of us have known all along: when Antifa, BLM, or the pro-Hamas goons block traffic in Chicago or San Francisco, or elsewhere -- it's not about swaying people to their cause. It's about bullying and disruption.

At least Mother Jones finally says the quiet part out loud.

And since the federal government doesn't seem interested in doing anything about it, it's good to know where we stand. Although some states are trying to pass legislation to address this issue, something that is long overdue.

More from Mother Jones:

Lawmakers in Alaska, Arizona, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Washington, and West Virginia have introduced new legislation designed to increase penalties for blocking traffic. The majority of the bills have been introduced by Republicans, except in New York, where a Democrat, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato, is leading the charge. 

If passed, these laws would take a variety of forms. In Arizona, blocking a highway or public road would become a felony, rather than a misdemeanor, punishable by up to more than 5 years in prison. In Massachusetts, it’s 10 years. New York officials want to expand their domestic terrorism law to include deliberately blocking public roads, bridges, or tunnels. West Virginia officials want to do the same, while carving out immunity for people who hit protesters with their cars. 

For all of their distinctions, advocates say these bills have one important thing in common. “Most of the proposals are unnecessary,” says Vera Eidelman, staff attorney at the ACLU. Blocking traffic without a permit is already illegal in all 50 states and typically classified as a minor offense.

This is more than blocking traffic and a minor offense -- and Mother Jones admits it in their own post. It's about disruption, the willful and planned intent to commit a crime and hurt commerce and travel.

Beep beep.

No one should.

Yep.

Shame indeed.

(Aside: 'Hot Fuzz' is a fantastic movie)

Nope. No genocide.

Not in the way they think, at all.

'My dad died en route to the hospital, I totally believe Israel is committing genocide now!'

Said no one. EVER.

They'll just escalate and escalate when people turn against them.

Yes they are.

It's (D)ifferent when they do it.

So weird, no?

They're not.

No, it's not a protest, and not protected by the First Amendment.

They even admit as much -- they say it's 'disruption', and that's a crime.

They don't want democracy, for all their bloviating about it.

They want to rule.

And when the people don't do what they want, they throw tantrums.

They do not care if you die, or lose your job, or face serious consequences for their actions.

Their agenda comes first.

And it's time we remind them they don't rule over us.
