Leftist Fascism Reaches New Lows in Blatant Thuggery, as "Mainstream" Left Covers Up for Them and Blames the Right

This is the post I delayed because I didn't know how to write it.

I won't write it. I'll just link the stories.

I will just repeat my urgent warning and threat: The rules you make for us are the rules you also make for yourselves. If you're comfortable with that, then I suggest you begin making serious preparations for the hell you are determined to unleash on this once-peaceful country.

Leftist "Anti-Fascist" Criminals Threaten to Attack and Drag Off Any Republicans in Portland's Annual Rose Parade; City Cancels Event. I don't know if they'll also be mounting a serious investigation into who made these threats and then prosecuting them to the worst the law will allow. I suspect they'll do neither.

Here's Althouse on it.

The New York Times previously blamed Milo and the rightwing for making the leftwing riot and physically attack people in Berkeley. They now do so again in the case of threats against the safety of author Ann Coulter.

Ms. Coulter, the acid-penned conservative writer, canceled a planned appearance on Thursday after the political organizations that invited her rescinded their support over fears of violence. "It's a sad day for free speech," she said.

Howard Dean and Sarah Silverman are "acid-tongued." (Not penned; they don't write.) If rightwing criminals threatend to assault them over speech, would the New York Times be searching for what they have recently called "false equivalency" between the two competing sides-- one side that says they have the right to speak without fear of assault, and another side that says if they speak they'll be physically attacked?

Jim Ruttenberg specifically called for an end of this practice of seeking "balance" were there was none -- in the New York Times itself. Of course, he meant that in the sense of not giving "balance" to conservative claims when leftist claims were so obviously the truth and All Conservatives Are Liars.

Notice they've gone back to seeking "balance" when the obvious malefactors are their fellow violent, fascist progressives.


But across the country, conservatives like her are eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations like the one in Berkeley, emboldened by a backlash over what many Americans see as excessive political correctness, a president who has gleefully taken up their fight, and liberals they accuse of trying to censor any idea they disagree with.

The situation adds up to a striking reversal in the culture wars, with the left now often demanding that offensive content be excised from public discourse and those who promote it boycotted and shunned.

A striking reversal? "Now"?

The left has been doing this with increasing militancy since the 1980s.

How fucking old and out of touch do you have to be to call this "striking reversal" as happening "now"?

It has happened and happened and grown worse every year precisely because the alleged "responsible voices" of the left, who could be expected to chastise their misbehaving correligionists and tell them to stop, have in fact covered up for them every step of the way, thereby tacitly approving of them and encouraging them to go further.

Remember the "Climate of Hate," where it was posited that somehow Sarah Palin had inspired a deranged man obsessed with the mind-control patterns of regular English grammar to shoot a Representative who didn't take his theories about grammar seriously?

If you believe in a "Climate of Hate" encouraging violence from more excitable members of a political cult, then you must also believe that the left's endless justification and excuse-making for violence -- when not openly calling for it-- creates a Climate of Hate on the left for visiting violence on the right.

You can't deny that. It's non-deniable.

What the Times and the left are doing, therefore, is simply supporting the Climate of Hate, and hoping to cause violence. So long as it's directed against the right people.

The rest of the article (so far as I could read) is less egregious than that opening -- claiming the victim provoked the attacker -- but that rhetorical excuse for political violence is quite enough.

I'm pretty sure that if Rush Limbaugh defended, justified, and make excuses for right wing gang violence the Times would not say the left "provoked" them by "throwing themselves" into "volatile situations" (like state-funded college campuses).

The mayor of Berkeley -- who liked a By Any Means Necessary Facebook posts (BAMN being one of the violent groups, as their name would imply), and who has ordered police to stand down and let BAMN and antifa attack citizens at random -- says that both antifa and the right which baits people into assaulting them are mutually to blame, and Mother Jones, naturally enough, agrees.

Keep your eye open for when Mother Jones speaks in the passive voice -- no human actor specified -- and when it gets suddenly specific about a human actor involved in an outcome.

On the eve of what was shaping up to be the latest in a string of violent clashes in Berkeley, California--

When a mugger attacks a citizen for his money, it's a "clash," but usually we do note who criminally attacked the other to start this "clash."

--between militant far-right and far-left activists,

Who's throwing M80s and bricks into crowds? Eh, doesn't matter. Niggling detail. There's a Higher Truth to be discovered.

-- Mayor Jesse Arreguin vowed that police would act aggressively to quash illegal behavior. "Berkeley is about the free exchange of ideas, but that's not what's happening," he said in an interview at City Hall late Wednesday.

Why? Who is it who is stopping the free exchange of ideas -- Ann Coulter, or the terrorists who threatened to harm her for speaking her ideas?

"So I think going forward we are going to need to have a more visible police presence at these incidents and intervene."

A confession that the standing orders have been to let Antifa attack whoever it likes, and that the only problem he sees her is that the attacked have begun counter-attacking.

Protesters who engage in violence or vandalism, Arreguin warned, will be arrested and prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law."

Which ones? You only arrested one guy at the Milo riot. I have a feeling you'll be arresting more of the attacked than the attacking.

Ever since a planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley in February by far-right media provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled amid a rash of violence and property destruction,

Amidst a rash of violence and property destruction which self-generated itself with no identifiable human agents behind it.

.... Berkeley has become a prime target for right-wing groups mobilizing under the banner of "free speech" ...

Ah. The right-wing is targeting Berkeley. Under the banner of quote-unquote "free speech."

...and trolling political opponents with bigoted rhetoric.

They can't name who is committing the violence and property damage, but they're Johnny on the Spot when it comes to Naming and Shaming those guilty of "trolling."

Alt-right and other far-right demonstrators have repeatedly scuffled with antifa counterprotesters in the city, most recently on April 15, when protracted brawls led to the arrest of 20 people.

They mutually "scuffled." No one, say, began attempting to storm the state where permitted speakers were legally speaking.

They add this, after noting Ann Coulter cancelled her appearance, but "fanned the flames" of wishing to speak without being physically assaulted:

alt-right agitators have vowed to cause mayhem whether she shows or not.

Again, Mother Jones finds its voice in being able to identify the trouble-makers, a task it found strangely elusive when it came to BAMN and antifa violence earlier.

And is antifa also vowing to battle in the streets?

I guess we'll never really know. It's just these alt-righters, I guess.

There's some leftist dude all in on stirring up sympathy for the guy who got shot at one of these protests. Lots of people providing facts like the guy shot was carrying knives and brass knuckles; was a member of the International Workers Union (I.E. Communist) and 3) charging the couple who shot him.

Not a word about whether dragging Republicans off the street and beating them to death is bad.

Also, don't miss Lazlo--a genius.

Kind of like Obama would occasionally talk about freedom of expression on campus in between "get in their faces" and "IRS actions."

Or like Jon Stewart would occasionally pillory a Democrat so he could claim unbiased status (because 5% and 50% both have a "5" in them).

What discourages me is that no one really just disassembles the strategy and lays it out. That's the only way to even slow it down.

Mind you, I know *why*, I used to do that all the time and no one on any side cares, they just want to grab onto a *thing* and shake it until it falls apart, because that *feels* better.

So basically trolls just go on forever with the same strategies, like equivocation (and basic lying).

75 The left is trying to ban all Republican or conservative speech as hate speech and ban it. Fortunately, for at lest now, the Supreme Court has said all hate speech laws are unconstitutional unless it can be definitely shown that the speech was designed to intimidate.


However, all this rioting directed at Republicans by this mob of hate leftest can be prosecuted if you don't have a mayor and a police department who are in cahoots with them.


Sounds like all that crap the NYT and the rest of the MFM used to raise hell about for the South in the 60s. A black man cold be persecuted and killed for walking down the street and the police would do noting because they were in cahoots with the KKK.


We have already ad more of this in Berkley alone than occurred in all of the south of the 60s.

He has a huge job to do and is in charge of a department almost entirely run by bitter enemies. He's got a lot of housecleaning to do, and he's working hard at streamlining the deportation/illegal alien nailing business. More judges, more officers, more courts, etc.

106 I'm willing to give Sessions more time considering Obama had 8 years to staff the entire DoJ with rabid SJWers. Can't undo that overnight, especially if there are some still there undermining him.



The other thing to consider is that the world is so volatile right now that we could have something like 9/11 happen that will totally change the environment. I hope nothing that awful, but Obama let things spin out of control in so many countries, and Europe is busy committing suicide, so it would not be unexpected...

120 For the millionth time, no shooting war. Incidents? Sure, maybe. No "war".


The war is already on, and it's an infuriating, quite, cold one. As you already know.


A shortage of Americans, eventually, leads to the place becoming un-American.


The populace tolerates un- and anti-American, racist, lawless, fascist-tinged idiocy from elected officials (Democrats, almost exclusively), the judiciary stands by, the police ask you to call back later cuz they're busy checking out the cost of that retirement house in Idaho.


No shooting war. But - will Sessions recognize that, for the second time in modern history, the feds and his dept. will have to go to war against lawless jurisdictions and entities? Ferguson, MO has a fine young cop virtually lynched for doing his job, has rioting ruin its business district - and then gets stomped on by the DOJ? How about Berkeley and lots of other locales feel the DOJ boot - this time for legitimate reasons?

McCartney drove the Beatles crazy. See here:

https://www.beatlesbible.com/songs/maxwells-silver-hammer/

for the beatles (actually only George and Ringo, John didn't participate) complaining about his thousand takes for Maxwell's Silver Hammer, which McCartney thought could be a single.

"It could never be a single," Harrison said. "It's so fruity. It's ridiculous to think it could be a single."

Or something like that.

But day after day they worked repeititvely on the song to make it perfect, even though the other guys thought it was a "fruity" throw-away.

Wow, didn't realize that it was two. I knew Pete Ham - couldn't pull the name, though.

A sort-of similar thing happened to the Gin Blossoms, though they actually were pressured by their label to kick Doug Hopkins (the guy who wrote pretty much all their hits) out of the band because he was a drunken mess and was forgetting songs on stage. He killed himself about a year and half later, partially because he was driven mad (and further into addiction) by the band succeeding without him (but with his songs).

Like he's kind of embarrassed to add another hook in a hooky song.

Yep. There's a documentary about the making of Aja which is excellent if you care about this sort of thing.

A lot of the profit from Aja got blown in various ways during the making of their next album, Gaucho. The songs are mostly great but the over-production drained a lot of the juice out of it.

There was a hiccup in the final sound production of the Katy Lied album such that Fagen and Becker have refused to ever listen to it again. For the life of me I still can't hear the problem

Bill Bruford used to sleep on the studio sofa; said he'd wake up after 3 hours and Chris Squire would still be playing the same bass riff, but with one note different.

When they did an album without him (as Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe), they were amazed at how quickly they could go from "Hey, guys, wanna do a new record?" to "Well, that's a wrap!"

I always used to say, "If you put Chris Squire, Donald Fagen, and Peter Gabriel in the same studio... you'd never hear from them again."

In Iran, under the Shah, the Islamic fundamentalists made common cause with the hammer-and-sickle Marxist revolutionaries.

Then immediately upon the ouster of the Shah, the two groups immediately set upon one another in a mad scramble to determine the future of the country.

Through sheer weight of numbers, the fundamentalists prevailed, and proceeded to stamp out Marxist sympathizers within the new Islamic Republic like crushing a cockroach.

Zero violence. The right wins the "king of the hill" battle for the moment, and are the victors over Berkeley.

367 The rules you make for us are the rules you also make for yourselves.

They're too narcissistic to find that acceptable. They can't comprehend the ethics of it.

Our only hope is that they at least have the rationality of a wild animal. If it attacks you and you beat it away often enough, it will eventually be trained to avoid you, out of instinct.

368 There will be no counter uprising by the pathetic conservatives who are a bunch of pussies. They love their soft and easy lives. The Left will score the easiest win of any culture-war in history. Sad, but true.

Silly MLK! He also threw himself into those situations.

371 It is really hard to understand - people on the right want the left to speak. Long and hard. In fact I encourage them to "open up" about their real feeling, plans and goals. My assumption is that the more people know about these people, the less support they are likely to get, because their ideas on...everything are just terrible.

372 It's almost as if, stay with me here, Earth is composed of a complex, interlocking system that will work to take all events and use the energy released thereby to promote life and self-regulate.

You know. Like how increased CO2 promotes plant growth and how increased water vapor creates cloud cover.

Like that.

373 Read Thomas wictor on twitter. His analysis of the April 15th Berkeley riots (start tl 6 days ago) is frightening and fascinating. He believes the Feds are already involved and what went on that day by the Berkeley police department is much more incidious and criminal than you think. Judging by the reaction of the cops today, I believe he is 100% correct and DOJ is already involved. Wictor also has YouTube videos with his theory and evidence. Corruption abounds, politics is everything. As an ex-dem, it is nauseating. They are a criminal organization.

378 The Left is done talking. They know they've lost the argument. They want war now, or at least they think they do. They'll change when we give it to them.

Sharkman's suggestion:

AC/DC. Of course."

I'd suggest putting Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It!" on that playlist too. I've seen on reddit antifa are talking about organizing and getting radios an coordinating. A fun and sometimes annoying some like that work be perfect for jamming them. Oh yeah also "Deguello"

385 The NYT has reverted to the "short mini-skirt" defense in that 'look judge she had that ass rape coming. I mean look how short that skirt is' when blaming Republicans for showing up at Berkeley and expecting to have First Amendment rights..

387 Was watching the FB live streaming from Berkeley yesterday from "RedElephant". Lefties don't realize they're *way* overextended. People on our side are spoiling for an actual (not verbal) fight.

Posted by: Clintonstain at April 28, 2017 03:29 PM (PdmvN)

388 Funny, once they get some of what they've been eagerly dishing out, they'll think a ton of bricks fell on them, and be asking for the police to protect them.

They need their asses handed to them several times to learn their lesson, and even then, not sure if it will stop with all the Soros money being offered to them to riot.

Whip their asses and call out the National Guard - this should not be tolerated.
