  • The #resist movement was an insurrection, Technically

    From a resident poster:

    Originally posted by GuessWho
    Insurrection: an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government. resistance: the act or power of resisting, opposing, or withstanding.


    It follows then that since the entire #resist Movement was explicitly a resistance against an established government that they were technically an insurrection. At least according to that poster.

    Well, yes - but on pure technicality, voting against the incumbent could be termed insurrection too.

      Perhaps our mystery poster will tell us that I am misuing their definition and that they didn't mean it that way. Of course, I can only go by what they post, and that was what they posted.

        Yeah, that would make failure to comply with a lawful order and resisting arrest the equivalent of treason. IOW, the next time that someone in an urban area resists arrest, and a crowd forms and refuses to disperse, they are all treasonous insurrectionists which the penalty for can be death.

        I'm always still in trouble again
