According to black conservative youtube guy -- this may be the roadblock which stopped the driver from entering the freeway.



If that's how the entrance ramp was blocked, I think it's reasonable that he did not think the freeway was officially closed & found another way to enter.

Washington State Patrol chose to allow the protests on the interstate:
We have heard from many frustrated citizens regarding the traffic disruptions caused by the temporary closures of the freeway due to protests. First, let me say thank you for reaching out to us. We are public servants responsible for safety and the enforcement of our state’s laws and while we always try to satisfy the legitimate concerns of those we serve, in this case I’m afraid our response will not be totally satisfying to all. In a time that requires care and flexibility, we are exercising the safest means possible to avoid injuries or worse to motorists, protesters, WSDOT personnel and our troopers by closing the roadway as needed and separating protestors from vehicular traffic. With no effective way of stopping large crowds from entering its lengthy borders, temporarily shutting the roadway is our best measure to avoid the dangerous mixture of freeway speed, vehicles, and pedestrians and to end the disruptions as quickly as possible.
Following Zinnia's death, they rethunk their approach:
The @wastatepatrol will not be allowing protesters to enter I-5. For the safety of all citizens including protesters and motorists, pedestrians walking on the freeway will be arrested.

Driver stopped, put on his hazards. Then drove away when the protesters tried to pull his car doors open, shouting 'get the fuck out of the car'. Also, loud fireworks were going-off. So.... "hit & run" seems dubious.



Driver is immigrant from Ethiopia.
Seattle Police say an earlier incident involving an off-duty cop and another driver at Boren and Olive Way and the same group of protesters 90 minutes before the incident on I-5 was not related to the crash that later sent the two women to the hospital.

According to SPD, around midnight, an off-duty Seattle Police officer was driving a personal vehicle at Boren and Olive Way, “where a group of demonstrators had blocked the intersection” —

The off-duty officer reported they had attempted to drive through an opening in the crowd when the crowd surrounded their vehicle. Another driver became involved in the incident and struck the off-duty officer’s car.

Police say they investigated and there were no injuries reported. This incident has been referred to the Office of Police Accountability for review, SPD says.

Yesterday I watched a few videos about whether Robert E Lee is irredeemable-- and about George Washington's & Abe Lincoln's relationship to slavery. One video sought to refute the "War of Northern Aggression" meme. It showed a map of the US, dotted with little fire icons-- for all the Confederate aggressions prior to Lincoln activating the Union army. Stuff like seizing an armory. South Carolina seceded months before Lincoln was even inaugurated.

Rather than convince me the confederates were breaking-with established norms, the map reminded me of all the little incidents prior to American colonial independence-- for example, the British were at war with the French but the American colonists violated a trade embargo-- trading with the French enemy.

I see the colonial rebellion as a bunch of smugglers & dishonorable cheaters vs. a regime. The undemocratic faults of the regime were used to justify the shady uprisers. To their credit, the colonials didn't simply replicate the monarchy. But, given that precedent, it's hard for me to see the confederates' declaration-of-independence as particularly treacherous & dishonorable-- I buy that-- at the time-- it seemed on a par with the previous semi-ignoble rebellion. (Differences are clearer with the advantage of hindsight.)

Following this train of thought forward-- the culture war currently turning hotwar-- is also rife with radical crazies and scumbags and fuckups and opportunists. The faults of the regime they seek to topple-- is cited to excuse the their own ample faults. They might win & takeover like 1776. Or lose & (mostly)surrender like 1865. If they win-- they won't be judged on whether they originated from fallacious propaganda & atrocious behavior. They'll only be judged on whether they build something better than what they replaced. Unlikely, I think. But not impossible.

Same shit happening in the UK. Police bow before the crowd, until the anti-BLM protesters come out.
White woman did not have a good reason to brandish her weapon. In Michigan you have to be in fear of personal harm. The white woman made a mistake by getting out of her car. She should have stayed in the car and called the cops. If you are going to carry you have to be more responsible for your behavior than a typical person. I think she will be found guilty and probably just end up with parole. They are also charging the white husband... but I suspect he will be found not guilty.
Whether or not that is true, the press are pushing the white racist line and it's open season on "whiteness". The past four years have been building to this point. The Democrats have demonstrated that they will tell any lie and cross any line for advantage and they don't seem to care how much damage they do. Even the Republicans have been caving to the hysteria. Either people stand up for themselves and refuse to accept the absurd premises of woke activists or they are going to have to get used to being whipped into subservience.
Oddly this time it seems like it is white women who are getting all of the attention. I guess they are next on the list to take down after white men. Most of the recent videos of "racist" behavior are of white women.
This has been going on for awhile. There was a battle for a who was next on the hierarchy: white men on top of course (or bottom depending on how you view it), but does the white woman come next or the black man? I'll usually check out the yahoo page every day and for years they've really hammered the viral videos of white women "wronging" back people, with such greivious activity as disputing lemonaid stands or wanting ID to get into a building or pool. There were cool nicknames like "Permit Patty" but I guess they ran out of them because they are all "Karen" now. White women may get oppressed by white men, but they oppress everyone else. It's been decided that race trumps sex, so take that you white feminists!
Who gets it next depends on who is in control. Are the political agitators still in control of the narrative or is the pack now self-winding? Could be the Asians next. Don't discount them. They have all the right qualifications for honorary whiteness.
I don't understand how people can be so blind to the reality of what is happening. Critical bullshit theory inspired shaming is so very clearly a device to clear the way for the grand plan to abolish those racist power structures i.e. get rid of everything that has allowed the world to reach it's unprecedented state of wealth and social advancement. It isn't as if the "intellectual" leaders of this power grab are hiding their agenda. I've reached the unwelcome conclusion that this is all the inevitable result of having dismantled religions, tradition and conservatism. Thing is, it is actually difficult to argue against some of this social justice crap from first principles. The best arguments are from history and faith that tradition has at least something to teach us. Those arguments are useless against ideologues with no respect for tradition or sense that our moral codes are based on something fundamental.

You'd better not try the MOCA then, it's tough. I'm thinking something more like Parkinson-Plus. Facial immobility, a common feature of advanced Parkinson's, usually goes along with stiffness and tremor to an obvious degree. But there are a group of Parkinson-like syndromes that allow you to pick'n'mix the symptoms along with prominent cognitive decline. That might fit the bill.

Pretty sure calling the cops is a waste of time right now. Still, simply walking/driving away, and not getting drawn into the chimp-out, would've been wise.

At least this one showed good trigger discipline.

The white woman had no reasonable fear of imminent, grave bodily harm. Yes, the black woman was jabbing her long pointy fashion nails into the white woman's face, but the white woman could easily have outrun her. A drunken, peg-legged sailor could have outrun her.

So what caused her to draw? The way she was screaming indicated real fear. IMO, a transference of the resentment and fear that's been building as she, like tens of millions of other whites in America, watch black hoodlums get away with mass mayhem while the Dems and their flying monkeys in MSM incessantly flog whites for not just being sinful in thought and deed, but permanently tainted with the original sin of having been born white.

Incidents like this one will spur the Dems and MSM to turn up the volume on the white-shaming, which will only add fuel to the fire and harden the resentment -- and the resolve to make Dems pay come election day.

'White Supremacy' is a synonym for 'Black Inferiority', right?

I mean-- if you believe whites are superior-- then you believe blacks are inferior.


BLM/SJW dogma: "Nice white people" might not alllll be individually racist, but they're "still complicit" in Systemic white supremacy.

correllary: Blacks aren't alllll individually inferior, but they're automatically born into Systemic black inferiority.

It's not their fault, but blacks are inferior to whites.

= Equality can only be achieved by the whites kneeling down to the black's low lowly low low level. (Blacks can't rise up to the white heights.)

Three online storms yesterday make me concerned about the future of humour online, with online mob outrage about jokes leaking into mainstream media and employment matters.

The Irish Times joined in with an online mob who attacked Monty Python star John Cleese for joking about how we Irish spell and pronounce our names.

Deloitte rescinded a job offer to Harvard graduate Claira Janover after she joked on TikTok that she would stab people who say All Lives Matter then tell them that her paper cut matters.

William Shatner blocked David Silverman on Twitter for joking that Shatner should apologise for playing a Nazi in Star Trek in case it upset sensitive people.

Also, I don't think 'call the cops' should be obligatory. It infantilizes us to default to some mommydaddy authority figure, instead of handling problems among ourselves.

The black mother is on video saying "I'll beat your white ass" and blocking the car from exiting.
What else is required to meet the 'fear personal harm' threshold?

I like this writer's perspective:

Fuck. Does that mean they'll all be singing their hymns outside their churches?

Same shit happening in the UK. Police bow before the crowd, until the anti-BLM protesters come out.
White woman did not have a good reason to brandish her weapon. In Michigan you have to be in fear of personal harm. The white woman made a mistake by getting out of her car. She should have stayed in the car and called the cops. If you are going to carry you have to be more responsible for your behavior than a typical person. I think she will be found guilty and probably just end up with parole. They are also charging the white husband... but I suspect he will be found not guilty.

Now that Ghislaine Maxwell has been arrested by the FBI, should we expect to see another in-jail "suicide" while on suicide watch, and accompanied by a mysterious failure of all the CCTV systems?

That's true. I lost my dad at 21 - not sure if it helped me grow, but it probably did set me apart somewhat.

I've been crying so much I can't cry anymore. My dad was everything to me. He was the only one I could talk to about anything and he'd listen. I could give him a hug whenever I felt like it. He'd always know how to make me feel better. Now I feel lost. I don't know what to do.

Oh, I'd hoped and I'd hoped for things to get better but it never did. There was always something else that replaced whatever got fixed and then whatever got fixed came back with a vengeance somewhere down the line. I felt so helpless. I just wanted his last years to be without pain. I just wanted to be there for him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I felt too tired to do things with him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I put off getting his stuff in order from the attic, when he didn't have the strength to get up there anymore. Either it was too late or too early, or I felt hungry or something. Just petty reasons. Still, he understood and was never angry with me. He was the most patient man I ever knew and he never raised his voice.

I love you, dad. You're not in pain anymore. You can rest now.
Pitch, I can't offer much, but I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Take time to grieve, and remember to take care of yourself.

In your case a little to old to be found in a handbag at a railway station...but still.

Pitchguest - don't try to be your Dad. Just be you. I think that you'll be surprised how many of his characteristics you have, and how that will make others feel.

Best.
