Just so Im not conflated with whatever side of the argument that guy is on about, my general point was to the implications/aesthetics of the unmarked car.
i didnt understand how any of what he said made it any less worrying that anonymous camoflage goons are picking people up. couldn't follow the argument.

Did you not get this far in the thread?

"In sum, you can tell the lefties whining about "random abductions" are idiots because if they had ANY sincere fear of their own Federal government, they'd know damn well that it's far, FAR scarier if the Feds DO know exactly who they're arresting and where to find them."

But yeah it's completely insane... especially all the people who predicted that Dems would issue in a faceless attack on freedoms and internment camps look pretty silly... or at least they would do if they weren't too busy cheerleading the fuck out of this and saying it's fine cos these people deserve it cos, in a nutshell, they don't like them.

it's bad there, but wonder if it'll soon start to backfire on the feds. they've been getting lots of pushback from other government entities (almost everyone outside of the administration and wackadoddles like tom cotton and Fox News), and trump claiming he wants to expand them into Chicago, Baltimore and other cities is going to raise even more hackles.

saddest part is it's largely just a campaign tactic, a way to rev the base and distract from failed COVID policies, high unemployment, etc.

the Kent state shooting seemed like a turning point in the protests against the Vietnam war, wonder if it will take a fatality in Portland or elsewhere to truly galvanize opposition to trump.

I'd give you (or anyone) up at even the hint of torture. they wouldn't even have to do it, just the thought of it and I'd spill the beans.

can you imagine getting fingernails or teeth pulled out during interrogation? Or zapped with an electrical change? I'd confess to anything. actually, I'd probably pass out before I even had the chance.
