I still don't understand how kneeling is offensive to people?
I think Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt drones live in a bubble where their ideology is never challenged. When they come across a view different to that dictated to them by the Murdoch media, they really can't handle it. They have nowhere near the self awareness to see the irony of demanding their right to free speech when they want to spew intolerance and hatred, yet are highly offended by and want to silence those who seek to promote tolerance. More to be pitied than laughed at though, because most of them are pretty simple and unsophisticated people who have had their irrational fears validated and then used as a tool to manipulate them.

If you don't think the tolerant left have just any many examples of this, you have zero self awareness

This little fad seems to be over in Australia. Haven't seen anyone outside Mass kneeling recently. Such sacrifice. Who would have guessed it was only superficial puffery?

Though much more serious in the USA. Matt Walsh has his take. TRIGGER WARNING - it may be quite upsetting.

This keg on legs with the mob by her side are laughing because allegedly a Trump/Blue Lives Matter supporter was murdered.
discourse these days is just memes and schadenfreude. people win their culture wars through the ground they gain in upsetting people with their ms paint skills.
principles... who needs them. as long as my side is the winning side.

as for the topic itself... many indigenous deaths in australian custody appear to be of natural causes. while not quite the recent violent history of usa, it begs other questions, such as neglect.
i doubt that kneeling is the only instance many people have shown some sort of thought to this particular issue. kneeling may be a visual symbol of the blm zeitgeist, but its vacuity depends on the individual themselves rather than the gesture. the questionable treatment of, and efforts to support our indigenous isn't a new topic after all, but there's often news-worthy instances where it enters the collective conscious of people oblivious to it.

No, no, actually it only matters if its about supporting criminal blacks who get their comeuppance from the cops. Don't be silly thinking its about real societal injustice and actual victim support.
You define comeuppance as summary execution? Don't believe in basic democratic rights such as a fair trial? Sound a little like an anarchist.
