Oh that's just for the recent protests in the cities. Rightwing death squads wage a sustained campaign of murder and terrorism in the countryside.https://twitter.com/dancohen3000/status/1338944156190859265?s=20

Anyone know how to get embedded tweets to show up when Iím reading the forums on my phone? I see them fine on my desktop but on my phone I just get the caption in plain text and no image. Itís quite annoying when reading this thread in particular.

Its 99% of the time force update and restart
if you still can't find a solution idk what to tell you im using the mobile app 24/7 and I can read/watch tweets just fine

so is that why some of you guys act like the way you do, you willingly engage in the conversations without reading or watching the embedded content ? Jesus gently caress

I looked and didn't even see an option for it, just embedded video, which is on. Also if it was off in my settings then I'd assume I wouldn't be able to see them on desktop either, but I can.

Yeah, youíre right. For some reason I thought embeds were all under ďadvanced posting features,Ē but Twitter isnít on that list. Weird.

do you use any adblocking plugins or have you browser configured with turbo-privacy settings that disable/break cross-site scripting?

like I'm currently on chrome (even tho it kinda sucks) and to un-break embeds on SA I use this set of filters to override the anti-social-media-tracking option in ublock

I do mobile posting via Chrome on my phone, and it's pretty random when it decides it wants embeds to work/not work. Usually refreshing the page will force the embeds to populate. If not, that usually means there's a Chrome update needed.

*winky face*

anyways I came in here to ramble about what someone said earlier about sacrificing black people first, yeah its hosed up, you can also see this poo poo in the fight for housing justice, this red lion poo poo where im at that was super hosed up and i dont think was talked about much trying to occupy the hotel for houseless people is a good idea imo, but houseless people ended up suffering the most when poo poo went down and that loving sucks and whats the solution you know? like gently caress, either you do nothing or you ramp your poo poo up to the point the police don't gently caress with you when you occupy a hotel. gently caress guys it sucks

actually can someone post a gif of lucille winking thanks

A very important part of the division of labour in leftist groups is that if I, the heroic man pledging to fight for the revolution end up not wanting to get shot when bullets start flying, well, that's understandable. No one wants to get shot. But doing the dishes? That's work that would happen now, not work that might not happen in the future!

Idk. Eric Garner broke me and all cops should either quit or be put into a giant blender.

I'm honestly more ashamed it took me like 25 years to come to that realization but I'm a white suburban boy in The South.


The videos are nuts and I can 100% understand never wanting to watch them. For people who are like "lol just don't watch them" it isn't always that easy especially on sites like Facebook and Twitter that like to make video and gifs auto play.

But I think they also serve a point of "waking" people to the horror. Though if you aren't on some extreme end of the cop debate by 2021 there probably isn't going to be a video that breaks you at this point.

I also shudder at the very real fact that there's probably lots of people watching the videos with glee seeing black bodies tortured and destroyed and they're free and available on even common people sites and not just weird stuff corners of the internet.

This is how I felt after all of those Parkland cell phone videos got posted on live leak. Should've been required viewing during a joint session of congress

As a white guy my opinions on this are probably pretty pointless, but actually seeing the videos is what jarred me out of my suburban upbringing tinted view. I 100% understand the desire not to see it, especially as for the oppressed it is just reliving trauma over and over again. However as my own experience, and that of others attests, it does work for helping people see the light.
