Biden family crimes censored, but inciting civil unrest is all good with Facebook.

Here's the Communist Post's spin on the 'incident' in North Carolina Saturday.

Peaceful march to the polls in North Carolina is met with police pepper spray and arrests, causing outcry on eve of election

GRAHAM, N.C.— The voters came in black sweatshirts emblazoned with the mantra of the late Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, who celebrated "good trouble."

Fists and iPhones raised, they chanted “Black lives matter” and promised “power to the people,” as they made their way from a Black church to the base of a monument to a Confederate soldier. In its shadow, they paused for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, honoring George Floyd, the Black man killed by a Minneapolis police officer who knelt on his neck for what was later determined to be 7 minutes and 46 seconds.
snip
The episode, which was live-streamed on Facebook by the march’s organizer,
the Rev. Greg Drumwright of nearby Greensboro, unfolded three days before an election that feels to many Americans like the edge of an abyss. It capped nearly a half-year of protests after the killing of Floyd. And it reflected efforts to channel indignation on the street into power at the ballot box in North Carolina, a critical battleground state, and other places deciding the country’s direction.

In many, many of these protests, yes, they do turn into riots that warrant police crack down.

With that said? I do not see any violence or destruction of property here. I looked through the live stream, and did not see any problems.

What is your problem with these protesters exercising their First Amendment rights? :dunno:

One of the great things that would come out of a Trump win woulb be dealing severely with the tech assholes who don't believe in the first ammendment. Zuckerburg, Dolan and the Google dweeb, along with our DOJ-FBI leadership all need to be either criminally investigated or severely fined. The only candidate offering law, order and prosperity is Trumpy.

Given the events that unfolded this past summer, cops had every right to confront these people.

You're not supposed to link to other forums.
It's impossible not to do that. Technically almost every website is a 'forum' - even YouTube.
