A frequent refrain in the last several months has been that people are just too selfish, stupid, mired in their phones and consumed by their avocado toasts to get up and protest in the streets like “everyone” did back in the day.
(The person posting such things, I assume, is doing so from inside the belly of an antifa action, as surely no one would urge mobilization and be immobile, that has never happened.)
So it’s useful to see stories about protests that did take place, to know that people are fighting back in whatever ways they can. What’s happening was never met with silence, no matter what anyone says.
Can’t stop the signal, motherfuckers.
