Protested at Capitol Hill Organized Protest today

Arrived around noon and the crowds grew for the next three hours that I was there. The name CHAZ had apparently been very organic and also hijacked in the last week or so. So CHOP (Capitol Hill Organized Protest) is being backed by many who have become organic or natural leaders.

People are pretty much living there if they are helping to organize or they live very close by - which many do.

By organize, I mean administer the basics like keep barricades up and trash down, etc.

I stepped outside of the zone to smoke. The persons there manning the gates asked me to where a mask. I showed them my mask in hand with my sign. They were super cool when I told him just steppin out to smoke. They don’t harass ya. Just try to inform or welcome.

The BLACK LIVES MATTER mural was cool. I actually got a great keepsake on the way out this afternoon. It is a postcard of the street mural from above. Super cool but it does have the CHAZ acronym not CHOP.

People were doing yoga in the park. Distanced. Dancing in one area. The main area at the precinct was the speaker zone. Today peoples of different Native American tribes of the PNW spoke and played drums. Justice for Jackie was also part of the day today. I heard Jackie’s mother speak.

My sign was two sided:

All Mothers Were Summoned



People sparked conversations about my sign and also told me I mattered.

In honor of flag day I wore my red, white and blue TruckFump hoodie. 😁

Was a good day and wish I had a bucket to put some pics in and post here.

Black Lives Matter

Running. Man.


Hope this works...

Facebook is a right wing site.

I’m not on Facebook. Deleted my acct in 2012. There have been discussions and requests here in the recent past about boycotting FB and then some folks will come on and say they will not for reasons of family etc. It has been a controversial request. But we sure wanna boycott any FucksNews personality’s advertisers once that post gets circulated. What gives?

Every spewing right winger I have the misfortune to know gets ALL their info and news from FB.

It pisses me off when people post FB shit here. We have forum rules and FB is a rightwing peddling site that DOES NOT BELONG HERE.

Yep. I say that if you are on FB you are subscribing to and (if reposting here) then peddling right wing bullshit!

How Facebook Became the Social Media Home of the Right

Liberal group flies banner over Facebook, accusing it of loving right-wing lies https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mercurynews.com/2019/11/05/liberal-group-flies-banner-over-facebook-accusing-it-of-loving-right-wing-lies/amp/

Democrats are fed up with Facebook https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/recode/2020/1/30/21115324/facebook-democrats-political-ads-mark-zuckerberg-joe-biden

How conservatives learned to wield power inside Facebook https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/02/20/facebook-republican-shift/%3foutputType=amp

PLEASE, please consider what you are supporting when you support FB by even having an account (since you know where Zuck stands and who’s back he has) and most certainly when you post any “found on FB” shit here!

That is all.

The newest album is F8. I like these two but haven’t heard the whole thing yet.



Anybody experiencing weirdness with links on DU?

Second day I am having to touch a link twice to open a thread. (Not fat fingering either. I can see the screen change a bit but the page won’t load till I touch it again). Even the ad pop ups make me hit the x twice.

Also, when I rec I have to touch it twice to get it to work and sometime it counts it like normal and sometimes the counter disappears altogether.

Earlier, I was posting a reply in a thread and I got a problem page telling me I had loaded the post twice. I had only touched “post my reply once”. It would not change so I just backed out of it.

I have logged off DU and restarted my device. No change.

It’s weird.

Edit to add: just completed a jury servixe and had to touch the options twice. Page sort of blinks in a nanosec kinda way but stay put. I touch again and it loads.

Monroe, WA school board member resigns over his daughter's ( and his?) racism


< snipette>

MONROE, Wash. — A school board member for a Snohomish County public school system has resigned his seat after videos of his young daughter surfaced on social media that depicted her using the N-word and defending the use of the racial slur.

<end snip>

More at link.

**When I go east of Snohomish river the tRump signs get thick. Rural America has many racist ideas/mores. 🙄🙄🙄
