Kentucky iconoclasm.

Somebody tell Freeman Hunt.

And, two nights ago in Louisville the large group of "protestors" turned on each other and in five seconds seven "protestors" were shot, not known if any have died yet.

Louis is actually a Spanish Bourbon (Borbón) and the Bourbon pretender to the French throne.

The rival Orléanists squandered their fortune two generations back and had to sell off the family jewels.

No comment on Louisville's "Wall of White Women"?

What measures? All our authorities have done so far is look the other way.

The statue is in from of the County Clerk's building, across from City Hall, and a block down the street from police headquarters. The courthouse and a lot of other government buildings are also there.

At least they didn't make off with the head.

Wince said...

"Big hands, I know you're the one!"

AZ Bob said...

That's not so bad. The French removed his head.

William said...

King Louis is now a lefty. He certainly fared better with this mob than the previous one.

The place needs a proper dragonnade.
That is, a brutal scourging of the populace by a regiment of dragoons.
Granted, that was a thing of Louis XIV's, not his weak descendant Louis XVI.

Louis Seize the Day

How sweet.

Back to Planet Earth, in downtown Oakland, two federal officers were shot, one wounded and one died.

When can one start protesting the violence of the protestors, one might be inclined to ask.

Deevs said...

"Overwhelmingly peaceful." From this clip, the protest does seem pretty peaceful (excluding the hand getting pulled off, but I think that may have been unintentional and he just meant to hang on it). But if you were trying to make me doubt something was in fact peaceful, using the modifier "overwhelmingly" would be the way to do it.

Freedom is under assault.

Democrats at this point are just shitting in their own nests with these riots. The only places they are happening are where democrats control the police force.

If democrats had all the power they want we would all be terrorized by looters and lawlessness.

Tim said...

"Protesters". Treat them as an enemy, as they treat you.

Nichevo said...

MN Gov himself has said this is an international conspiracy. That would be...FBI's job?

Not Sure said...

I wonder if the guy who seized the hand of the king was a Game of Thrones fan.

Mary Beth (the commenter) said...

Great. And now we have a 9pm curfew. People are going to have to move their looting up to daylight hours. Not that I have any expectations that anyone will try to stop them, regardless of the time of day it is.

I have enjoyed reading comments online about how ineffectual our mayor is (both the protesters and the people upset about the burning and looting are complaining about him). I guarantee that a large number of people complaining also voted for him and are now SURPRISED that he's useless. It's his third term. I think they just don't want to admit they voted for the party and not for the man.

Let them drink bourbon is an old Kentucky motto. They do love that French royal family.

Heh. You and I may be the only ones here who get that obscure reference.

Hey Achilles. Where's your opioid obesity army of Trump Cucks you keep threaten?

"...had to sell off the family jewels."

World's oldest profession.

cubanbob said...

Shooting looters and rioters dead always works in quelling riots.

Hey Howard, you flatter yourself with the photo of Uncle Bunky. It's a great shot, your tired shtick isn't worthy of it, but I see the appeal.

Buying ammunition, Howard. We don't have to worry because the ANTIFA thugs hang out with you pussies.

narciso said...

will mitch mcturtle say anything about this,

So Pro-Choice. Third-world progress.

That said, they don't know if the arrest was motivated by diversity. There is evidence that the two men knew each other. There is circumstantial evidence of excessive use of force. There was probable cause to arrest George. Now, there is probable cause to arrest the officer(s) and due process. In a civilized country, there should not be a planned police or population event, or indulgence of redistributive change, and people should protest this progress that is the harbinger of a dysfunctional convergence.

Yeah, that's pretty much his act. He lost my patience for his act when he started telling everybody how much bran he ate. Straight outta Orwell.

But he really only proved he was a pussy the other day, I mean a Freder Fredo C U Next Tuesday level of pussy, when somebody or other threw Fauci's latest advice in his teeth and he squealed like a Ned Beatty, Waah, I'm not listening!

Apparently he knows that PDT has the virus on the run and will therefore win 2020...and he hasn't nearly enough alcohol handy to face it. Just buy more, Howie. Those eight or nine careers you had, surely there is pension cash coming in?

Matt said...

"Overwhelmingly peaceful" - mandatory qualifier for all riot-related communications.

Pathetic.

Narr said...

Birkel. Chickelit, and Freeman Hunt-- you're right, I think. I don't get the reference.

I hate to miss out!
