I was wondering what the pro-rioting argument is going to be like, so I peeked over into the “bourgeois leftie Twitter” and now I know.
As usual, it’s something I would have never guessed.
Here goes: if people weren’t mean to Colin Kaepernick, looters wouldn’t have broken into Target and stolen TVs, vandalized synagogues, burned churches, or destroyed small businesses.
I have no idea what the connection is and how the looters’ need for TVs, Louis Vuitton bags, and fancy guitars would have been satisfied by everybody being super sweet to Kaepernick but there’s at least a dozen memes on the subject and they are getting massive retweets. It’s interesting to know there is a world in which this logic is taken seriously.
