Holy shit, it’s the “Adipose Olympics”! Bikers: big fat guts, long graying scraggly beards and red, beefy tattooed forearms! And don’t get me started about the men!

Remember when bikers were free-thinking antiestablishment rebels? Joe Friday sure had some simmering disgust for them.

Yes, this is crazy to realize that biker gangs are now pro-government, pro-police supporters. At least until Jan 21st or so.

The outlaw image is found lacking. Police, Militia and now Bikers are looking pretty shabby. The more they do, the more people in general will question why they exist as they do. Just keep swinging the spotlight at yourself guys, it makes it easier for Joe Blow to see the idiots you are.

Meanwhile for those in need of something pleasant.

“From what I understand, the two buses — or there could be three buses, I’m not sure — are outside of Bethel, full of antifa,” one local man said in a Facebook video ahead of Monday’s protest, without citing any evidence. “It doesn’t have nothing to do with Black Lives Matter. It’s antifa. The rumors are true. They’re busing them in today.”

Those naughty antifa…always heavily armed disrupting small town lives all across wing nut 'Murica when they’re not sipping lattes outside a Starbucks.

The horror :roll_eyes::shushing_face::wink:

“This ain’t Seattle. We’re not in a Democratic state here. We don’t put up with this shit. …”

But then again, you love lubricious underarm stench and cheap, crappy coffee boiled in a five gallon urn.

The orange thing says blah blah that Miller wrote for him about police department reforms but forgets to mention racism.

under a new credentialing process, chokeholds will be banned "except if an officer’s life is at risk.” Chokeholds are already largely banned in police departments nationwide.

Trump framed his plan as an alternative to the “defund the police” movement that has emerged from the protests and which he slammed as “radical and dangerous."

“Americans know the truth: Without police there is chaos. Without law there is anarchy and without safety there is catastrophe," he said.

Can we start rumors that Antifa is descending on military installations and get these guys to ‘scuffle’ with some people in uniform that actually know how to use guns maybe?

This is why I always felt that the resistance to the protests would both increase the examples of the racism the protests were calling attention to, and extend the movement the protests represent.

“This ain’t Seattle. We’re not in a Democratic state here. We don’t put up with this shit. All lives matter here,” said one biker to a woman recording video.

Tell that to the woman who hag her sign ripped out of her hand, thrown against a wall and punched in the head.

G*d. This is so old playbook. The police just happened to be “called away.” Did any return in civilian dress and join the bikers?

I’d guess a lot of these guys started out like that then realized they were losing status, not being the shoe in and wanted it all back.
