Diversity is our strength! The day of the rope is coming.

Goddamn it, I want a day of the rope T-shirt! Nice festive logo with a list of events printed on the back of the shirt. Maybe buy out some radio time for an advert like a drag race. Radio announcers voice:You can buy the whole seat but you'll only need....the edge!

Honestly it creeps me out when people start talking about "the day of the rope". It speaks to me of mob vigilante justice, which is no justice at all. I don't think such behavior is any better than the ISIL thugs throwing gay guys off of the buildings. The difference is right now, you just talking about it instead of actually doing it.

Yet it's the "natural" reaction of people, when nothing at all is being done to protect them.

The best way to not have mob justice, is to have actual justice doing its job. But when the governments, judges, police, and medias promote a situation and narrative that is actively harmful to the people, what do you expect ? To just passively accept and be a victim ?

Don't blame people saying that. Blame the politicians who created the powder keg.

Edit: I just saw this quote on a reddit comment (not deleted, incredible !) to express it better: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." - John F Kennedy

/u/alphawookie is just expressing how frustrated people feel. I personally don't want lynch mob justice. But something must be done, and it won't be done by our incompetent leaders at the federal OR state level.

These people always imagine that they're the ones holding the rope. If they happened to be so unlucky as to be the victims of vigilante rule, however, they'd be screaming louder than anybody that they need a judicial system that ensures their civil liberties aren't violated.
