 >:D You know how cockroaches scatter like mad when a light is turned on at night?

How quickly would these "encampments" scatter if multiple packs of firecrackers, esp. those "long chain" types (500 plus) bundles were thrown in their midst?

You know, El Salvador took care of their problem by mass incarceration of gang members.  I see a potential model for solving our problems here.

The NY Times has a big article today that blames ALL of the violence at UCLA on the counter protestors.

Not enough information to know if he accidentally turned down the wrong street or planned on confronting protestors:

https://twitchy.com/brettt/2024/05/04/student-protesters-trash-car-that-targeted-them-this-wasnt-an-accident-n2395886

My only question is the bear spray, which someone might have been carrying to attack protestors, or that someone might have been carrying because it's Portland.

The "We the People" I will not even consider, because I'm sick of these aholes equating the Constitution, flag, and anything even slightly patriotic as "extremism and domestic terrorism". That *expletive deleted*it needs to stop, and if hippies need to die to stop it, FAFO. This is all getting out of control.

So, the CEO of an online men and women's health company, Hims & Hers, said last week that he admired all of the protestors and said they could come work for him. That was after a lot of corporate CEOs came out and said that they would never hire someone involved in one of the protests (I'm assuming they meant someone who was arrested).

Well, last Friday investors apparently sent him a message with a pretty substantial hit to the company's stock (down 8% on Friday).

Now he's crying about how the big meanies have misconstrued his words, how he's not antisemitic and is against violence and intimidation...

https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/hims-hers-ceo-walks-back-praise-anti-israel-protesters-college-campuses-after-stock-drops

Turns out he's Palestinian American, and from what he said last week leading up to this, it certainly seems that he's quibbling.

Staying classy
Not many of them and I think "massed" is a bit of an overstatement but still..

Quote
Pro-Palestinian demonstrators massed near the grounds of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp today, rolling out flags and hoisting balloons as groups gathered for the 'March of the Living' in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust.

Sirens wailed as protestors displayed a banner reading 'stop genocide' at groups wearing Israeli flags along the sidelines of the event, which brings together thousands annually to observe Holocaust Remembrance Day in silence.

Being reported Hamas has accepted a crease fire deal. No word yet on what the other side in this has to say about that.

Quote
The Hamas terrorist group announced Monday that it has accepted a cease-fire agreement brokered by Egypt and Qatar to end the war against Israel in the Gaza Strip.

It released a statement saying its leader Ismail Haniyeh "had a phone call with the Qatari Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al-Thani, and with the Egyptian Minister of Intelligence, Mr. Abbas Kamel, and informed them of the Hamas movement’s approval of their proposal regarding the ceasefire agreement."

There was no immediate response from Israel. The fate of the hostages still in Hamas' possession following its Oct. 7 attack on Israel that launched the war remains uncertain.

Watching some live stuff on Newsmax right now and with the number of aircraft flying over to Gaza and the sounds of explosions I would venture to say they have not accepted the ceasefire as of now.

And apparently the cease fire deal Hamas has "accepted" makes absolutely NO mention of all of the hostages that they're keeping.

Much of the MSM is leaving out that little detail making it sound like Israel is rejecting Hamas's fair and reasonable peace offer.

@AliVelshi
BREAKING: A senior source familiar with the proposal says Hamas has accepted a 3-phase deal:
-1 Israeli hostage for 33 Palestinian prisoners BASED ON SENIORITY OF DETENTION in Israeli prison
-Stopping military operations permanently. The proposal does not use the word “ceasefire” but “the permanent halt to Israeli military operations and hostilities in Gaza.”
-Each phase encompasses the return of Israeli hostages from eldest, women, sick and finally soldiers.

A ceasefire deal brokered by Quatar? Yeah, that's legit.

Wasn't there a ceasefire deal on the table just a few days ago that Hamas rejected (again)?

Anyways, we also have this idiot:

Totally not the kind of one sided “deal” that would encourage an exact repeat of this.
