I had planned a vacatin to St. Louis next week and looked forward to going to the zoo, museum, botanical gardens and other places in the city. There is a lot of things to do.

After reading this morning about the riots and plans for more “actions” by masked Antigua activists, I cancelled my plans. I feel sorry for many working people that get hurt when tourists avoid an area.

I live in the STL area. I was supposed to go to the symphony last night….that was cancelled. Probably wasn’t going to go anyway. My FD may have to respond to the area if it gets bad. We went to Ferguson a few years ago. Luckily down in the country where I live, life is as usual. Saturday morning soccer.

I am amazed at auto complete. I looked up how to spell “antifa” and spelled it right and it got changed. These people are a scary bunch and need to be stopped.

Antigua activists are pretty scary!

Antifa should be stopped right after the Alt right are dealt with.

Why shouldn’t there be a problem when a large percentage of people are mad about something?

it is an unfortunate situation..feel bad for all the small business owners that are already struggling. i know some of the innocent business owners that were caught in Rodney King riots that never recovered…most lost everything…lack of insurance

any group that wears masks, says a lot of the group and what they stand for…it seems farther you go to right or left, they begin to converge into one

If you ever do get to go to St Louis …. Go up in the Arch. WOW! What a view. And be sure to sit thru the movie that show downstairs on the history of it. Worth the time to spend a 1/2 day there.

Whataboutism (also known as whataboutery) is a variant of the tu quoque logical fallacy that attempts to discredit an opponent’s position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument, which is particularly associated with Soviet and Russian propaganda. When criticisms were leveled at the Soviet Union, the Soviet response would be “What about…” followed by an event in the Western world.
