Does anyone think Protesting changes things?
Do people think if they get in a line with other people protesting, that they are truly making a difference in 2022?

They are mostly peaceful, except for the burning, destruction,looting, turning over cop cars, etc. Yes, I would say they change things, they destroy the remainder of what is left of leftist ran cities. [Linked Image]

I think violent or at least visible protest are pretty useless. They happen and then the news cycle moves on. Organized financial protest can for sure change things if they are well organized and if they have staying power, they can destroy a business, an industry, etc…


To be truly woke you have to believe that two wrongs can make a right

Yes it does.
A couple thousand people protest police in a city of 2 or 3 million and the police are defunded.
20 or 30 Parents push CRT in a school district with 100,000 kids and they start pushing CRT.
The list goes on and on. The liberals always side with the loudest and dumbest.
It is only going to get worse.

Most are libtards drawing a leftist check for protesting because they're too stupid to hold a real job. There I said it and feel much better!

BOSTON TEA PARTY (1773)

At nine o'clock on the night of December 16, 1773, a band of Bostonians disguised as Native Americans boarded the British merchant ship Dartmouth and two companion vessels anchored at Griffin's Wharf in Boston harbor. The Americans, who numbered around 70, shared a common aim: to destroy the ships' cargo of British East India Company tea. Many years later George Hewes, a 31–year–old shoemaker and participant, recalled "We then were ordered by our commander to open the hatches and take out all the chests of tea and throw them overboard. And we immediately proceeded to execute his orders, first cutting and splitting the chests with our tomahawks, so as thoroughly to expose them to the effects of the water." Urged on by a crowd of cheering townspeople, the disguised Bostonians destroyed 342 chests of tea estimated to be worth between £10,000 and £18,000. Their actions, which became known as the Boston Tea Party, set in motion events that led directly to the American Revolution (1775–83).

That was the exact event that came to mind for me as well. Yes, protest do change things.

Yes, protests have the potential to change things, but things do not always change the way the protesters envision.
