    So weird that looting and destruction is the corporate-approved position.

    Shouldn't people be angry that a crime is being abused into allowing criminals to commit crimes? A man is unjustly killed and the acceptable response is rioters kill others and destroy property? Nobody is saying there shouldn't be a civil protest if people choose to do so. Mass violence is not acceptable.

    Playing devil's advocate here, if you read the whole article it's less that he's denouncing protesters and more denouncing looters.

    Per Fulltone: "I am begging you to sell your pedals because you actually don’t deserve them. You are actually so racist that you believe the Good people who are protesting are the same as the Organized gang banger criminals who are looting ‘store fronts’.

    “Those ‘store fronts’ are good hardworking people’s lives and livelihoods. I’m [sic] fact if I see you with a Fulltone pedal I will tag it and break into your house and loot it from you, because its my free expression to do so… right?”


    I have no skin in the game since I own barely any pedals (and none of the ones I own are fulltone).
    It's still an improbably stupid move on his part to post his personal opinions on a business related account.

    Let's not go that far. Rioters are pieces of shit but they aren't killing people. At least not the level cops do...

    I tend to agree with the sentiment even if the dude is a dick head. Killer Mike said it best. You don't burn down your own house to spite your enemy

    Rioters probably have killed people but I don't call people getting gassed, beaten and shot at "impunity." Both sides are at fault. But yeah, you've got to know by now that in today's world, if you say anything that can be spun, it will be spun.

    Spinning stories should not be protected by free speach, imo. To me it essentially equates to fraud and slander. I could take your comment you just said and spin it into akinari said: I ".. have killed people ". Not cool. This is what these people do all the time. I see it on the news outlets all the time.
    - I saw it yesterday on the news. I sat here while eating lunch and watched press meeting with our governor talking about all this stuff going on. At the end during question time the reporter asked him if he believes in systemic racism and if so if it was within the police dept here in Phoenix. This was live, the governor said (to paraphrase) that it exsists everywhere and needsd to be resolved, without mentioning the police dept. A half hour later I have the same news channel on and that reporter is doing his story bit on the press conference and blatantly lies to everyone saying he asked the govern if he believes that systemic racism exists and that the governor refused to answer the question apparently not wanting to talk about it! I called the news station and complained. I must not have been the only one because later at night by the time the 6 clock news came on they changed it to he asked the governor and the governor says he believes it exists but refused to comment on the police dept at this time. Again, another entirely and blatantly false statement. He did not refuse to comment on the police station. He just said it exits everywhere. By saying he refused to comment makes him look like he loves cops and hates blacks, subconsciously, to many people I would guess. This should be illegal and considered fraud. What's funny is that evil Fox "fake news" got the facts correct. They do this all the time. Pretty much anything anyone says can't be trusted because there is no way to verify it.
    - The Moon is made of cheese. We didn't land on the Moon. We landed on The Moon. We don't know. It's all bullshit.

    It's just sitting in store inventory. The new stuff they can probably (but they won't) send back.

    They're not going to just throw it away. They'll either post it later or dump it to one of their other retail partners/subsidiarys. At least that's the course of action when they stop selling other merchandise.

    Keeley is a class act.

    People generally knew that the fulltone guy was a big asshole. He finally said something at just the wrong time.

    The defenders on tgp and the boomer fbook groups are hilarious though.

    the things they've pulled mental gymnastics to defend over the years...

    Never thought I would see this in America.

    He exercises his freedom of speech and companies put him out of business.

    Does anyone else see this?

    <people who understand the 1st amendment>

    <people who tell you what is/isn't American>

    Somehow...two mutually exclusive sets of people.

    Donald Glover seems smart enough to understand the 1st Amendment.
