So in New Hampshire, the annual Pumpkinfest was interrupted with bloody riots and…well…twitter answered the call. 

This is my home town. It never fucking ends in Keene. I have so much to say about it. But to clear things up, the rioting was not AT pumpkin fest. The rioting was started by a massive college party at off campus housing. Swat teams contained it to that area and Pumpkin Fest, which is an annual family friendly event, went on as usual. Pumpkin fest was an excuse for the college kids to party, but was not the cause or location of the riot. 

There was tear gas, rubber bullets, the tank (that was mocked by john oliver) was brought out, and police are being called in from VT, MA, and major cities in NH to help control it. 

Some party-goers got violent and destructive and then got violent against police and medical personnel who were trying to help the injured. This turned into the riot where they were setting fires and flipping cars. The entitled shitheads are treating it like a joke, and, lbr, of course they are. I bet most of these kids were raised to laugh at authority. I bet their parents bailed them out their whole lives. They have NOTHING to fear. They’re taking selfies in front of the swat teams. It’s white privilege at it’s finest. And it will inevitably be covered that way by the media.

I’m glad black twitter took notice. It’s weird that I was blocks away from this but that the Pumpkin Fest was completely unphased. It was only at night when I went back to my car and had to drive through herds of college students taking up the side street who could’ve decided to fuck with me at any given time that it was real to me.

Keene has become an incredibly bizarre place to live with domestic terrorism/gang behavior which is basically ignored by police because the people doing this are rich and white. It’s not just college riots. Look into Free Keene and their bullshit. There’s too much to unpack to even begin to make people understand what’s going on here.

It’s been hashtagged “pumpkinfest” because early news reports tied them together.

One tweet perfectly calls out how the media portrays Black protests

On Saturday night, police armed with tear gas and pepper spray were called in to contain riots that broke out during a pumpkin festival in Keene, N.H. 
CNN reported that those involved — many of whom were students at nearby Keene State College — yelled expletives at police, started fires, flipped cars and tore down street signs. Video footage showed bonfires burning well into Sunday morning, as well as streets littered with broken bottles and debris. Dozens of arrests were made, and multiple ambulances reported to the area to help the injured.

In majority of New York State, like in Nassau, transgender people can still be legally discriminated against. In Suffolk County, where we have some protections, I could still be denied access to the bathroom, changing rooms, housing and even sent to a men’s prison where I’ll likely be raped. Andrew Cuomo needs to pass GENDA now, like he promised in 2010. We’ve waited far too long.

Many of my cis friends have messaged me since I’ve come out in support of me. But the biggest way you could support girls like us is to vote‬ the Republicans out this November 4th who refused to pass ‪GENDA‬, the ‪trans‬ equal rights bill. And please share this, it’s important!

I have friends experiencing discrimination right now that’s jeopardizing their mental health and safety. Fucked up shit has happened. Register to vote here and contact your representative!

Dont forget there was another riot at WVU after they beat Baylor.

Thugs rioting over a football game. But lets see if the news even reports this riot. But then again, their behavior will be excused because rioting is justified when its a football game compared to peacefully protesting for the shooting of an unarmed person

this is my school and lemme tell you, it is fucking awful.

White people are screaming ‘omg police brutality, its like ferguson’ when these fucking kids were rolling dumpsters down the hill at police.

This was disgusting and now our tuition is probably gonna go up since we’re gonna need more cops. WVU riots are shitty and this pisses me off so much.

Wait, wut??? O_o
