When Liberals Club People, It’s With Love In Their Hearts

Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims “fascists,” they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody. No police officer will stop them. They have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak.

Even far-left liberals like Evergreen State professor Bret Weinstein will be stripped of police protection solely because the mob called him a “racist.”

If the liberal shock troops deem local Republicans “Nazis” — because some of them support the duly elected Republican president — Portland will cancel the annual Rose Festival parade rather than allow any Trump supporters to march.

They’re all “fascists”! Ipso facto, the people cracking their skulls and smashing store windows are “anti-fascists,” or as they call themselves, “antifa.”

We have no way of knowing if the speakers at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally last weekend were “Nazis,” “white supremacists” or passionate Civil War buffs, inasmuch as they weren’t allowed to speak. The Democratic governor shut the event down, despite a court order to let it proceed.

We have only visuals presented to us by the activist media, showing some participants with Nazi paraphernalia. But for all we know, the Nazi photos are as unrepresentative of the rally as that photo of the drowned Syrian child is of Europe’s migrant crisis. Was it 1 percent Nazi or 99 percent Nazi?

As the “Unite the Right” crowd was dispersing, they were forced by the police into the path of the peace-loving, rock-throwing, fire-spraying antifa. A far-left reporter for The New York Times, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, tweeted live from the event: “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.”

That’s when protestor James Fields sped his car into a crowd of the counter-protesters, then immediately hit reverse, injuring dozens of people, and killing one woman, Heather Heyer.

This has been universally labeled “terrorism,” but we still don’t know whether Fields hit the gas accidentally, was in fear for his life or if he rammed the group intentionally and maliciously.

With any luck, we’ll unravel Fields’ motives faster than it took the Obama administration to discern the motives of a Muslim shouting “Allahu Akbar!” while gunning down soldiers at Fort Hood. (Six years.)

But so far, all we know is that Fields said he was “upset about black people” and wanted to kill as many as possible. On his Facebook page, he displayed a “White Power” poster and “liked” three organizations deemed “white separatist hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A subsequent search of his home turned up bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics.

Actually, none of that is true. The paragraph above describes, down to the letter, what was known about Micah Xavier Johnson, the black man who murdered five Dallas cops a year ago during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. My sole alteration to the facts is reversing the words “black” and “white.”

President Obama held a news conference the next day to say it’s “very hard to untangle the motives.” The New York Times editorialized agnostically that many “possible motives will be ticked off for the killer.” (One motive kind of sticks out like a sore thumb to me.)

In certain cases, the media are quite willing to jump to conclusions. In others, they seem to need an inordinate amount of time to detect motives.

The media think they already know all there is to know about James Fields, but they also thought they knew all about the Duke lacrosse players, “gentle giant” Michael Brown and those alleged gang-rapists at the University of Virginia.

Waiting for facts is now the “Nazi” position.

Liberals have Republicans over a barrel because they used the word “racist.” The word is kryptonite, capable of turning the entire GOP and 99 percent of the “conservative media” into a panicky mass of cowardice.

This week, Mitt Romney and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — among others — instructed us that masked liberals hitting people with baseball bats are pure of heart — provided they first label the likes of Charles Murray or some housewife in a “MAGA” hat “fascists.”

Luckily, the week before opening fire on Republicans, critically injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Bernie Sanders-supporter James Hodgkinson had used the vital talisman, calling the GOP “fascist.” So you see, he wasn’t trying to commit mass murder! He was just fighting “Nazis.” Rubio and Romney will be expert witnesses.

And let’s recall the response of Hillary Clinton to the horrifying murder of five Dallas cops last year. The woman who ran against Trump displayed all the moral blindness currently being slanderously imputed to him.

In an interview on CNN about the slaughter that had taken place roughly 12 hours earlier, Hillary barely paused to acknowledge the five dead officers — much less condemn the shooting — before criticizing police for their “implicit bias” six times in about as many minutes.

What she really wanted to talk about were the two recent police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis, refusing to contradict Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton’s claim that the Minneapolis shooting was based on racism.

Officers in both cases were later found innocent of any wrongdoing. Either the left has had a really bad streak of luck on their police brutality cases, or bad cops are a lot rarer than they think.

Some people would not consider the mass murder of five white policemen by an anti-cop nut in the middle of a BLM protest a good jumping-off point for airing BLM’s delusional complaints about the police. It would be like responding to John Hinckley Jr.’s attempted murder of President Reagan by denouncing Jodie Foster for not dating him.

Or, to bring it back to Charlottesville, it would be as if Trump had responded by expounding on the kookiest positions of “Unite the Right” — just as Hillary’s response echoed the paranoid obsessions of the cop-killer. Trump would have quickly skipped over the dead girl and railed against black people, Jews and so on.

That is the precise analogy to what Hillary did as the bodies of five Dallas cops lay in the morgue.

Thank God Donald J. Trump is our president, and not Mitt Romney, not Marco Rubio and not that nasty woman.

  • Ann, there is no longer any reasoning. If you disagree with the left, you are labeled racist, bigot, homophobic, xenophobic and your opinion or voice is immediately deemed evil! That is the playbook of the left. They have no facts to support their opinion, they merely tear up and call names invoking sympathy from those who can’t think for themselves! At this moment, there is no more dangerous time for liberty and freedom. The next generation is more than willing to give up everything to the government for mental peace and physical dependency! That is how most every other great democratic republic ended in a socialist dictatorship!

    • Very well said Rob! There’s no room for discussion or debate because the left is always correct and the media is in full support.
      In addition, our colleges and universities are brainwashing the students with these “ideals”.
      As you say, it truly is a dangerous time for liberty and freedom.

    • My ‘reasoning’ says that being labeled ANYTHING ignominious by the “left,” is complete verification that I am absolutely correct in whatever I am doing!

  • This book tells the shocking story of this long forgotten chapter in American history — the story of the Union League, Washington’s KKK.

    The Union League during Southern Reconstruction
    By John Chodes (05/2016)

    ​THE “OFFICIAL” VERSION OF SOUTHERN RECONSTRUCTION is that there was a reign of terror — a systematic murder and intimidation by the “white Southern ruling class” who were determined to keep free people of colour in a virtual state of slavery. The real picture is a good deal more complicated.

    One can find plenty of material about conflict, intimidation, and killing in America during the period 1865-1877; but the Marxist class conflict formulary of history — also known as Political Correctness — takes for granted as fact what is clearly partisan propaganda of the time. They never ask the essential factual and moral question: Who initiated violence? John Chodes shows that the violence was begun by the Republicans through the establishment of the Union League.

    The Union League was a Northern organisation with the mission of maintaining the illegal and undemocratic control of the Republican Party in the South. Its mobs of Black “militia” led by Carpetbaggers engaged in intimidation, theft, harassment of the innocent, and murder. They deliberately provoked violent response. Their coercion was directed not only at whites, but towards the freedmen who refused to support the Republican regime. In other words, the Union League used the methods of the Ku Klux Klan before the Klan came into existence.

    This book tells the shocking story of this long forgotten chapter in American history — the story of the Union League, Washington’s KKK.

  • The time is coming. The insanity must stop across America at all levels in and out of government. Waiting on the trigger event.

  • President Trump got this right. (That seems to be a common statement for those of us who think things through.) The Charlottesville demonstrations was a meeting of a number of undesirable groups. Maybe we should let the citizens of Charlottesville decide what they want to display in their town. It’s time these rent-a-rioters find something positive to do with their lives. It’s time we shine the light on the scumbags who are financing them.

  • Great job Ann

  • The Republicans had a chance to stand up to the politically correct bullying by the fake news media when Trump spoke the truth and said the right things. Just like they had a chance to repeal Obamacare. Just like they have a chance to reign in out of control spending. Just like they have a chance for tax reform. Just like they have a chance for, …never mind.

    • Just like they have a chance to be 100{5be752e6a2546dc4e6e2f4f637c8b6b9a634d589f947af2e09cfdaaa6f97c9dd} consistent. Consistently FAILING, when given complete power to ROLL BACK policies SINKING the good ship America!

  • But, me dawlin’ Ann, you must have missed the fact that to compare those dastardly “white supremacists” with those “pure as the driven snow,” ‘peaceful’ anti(fa)-demonstrators is damning America back to the dark ages & the KKK will once again be burning crosses & homes in the night! All that burning & looting in several cities, by these ‘oppressed,’ peaceful rioters must be allowed as a way for them to vent their grievances! A few dead cops is acceptable ‘collateral damage.’

    • I hope everything you said is “tongue in cheek”

      • More like crying in me beer! My nerve endings are long gone, worn to numbness, followed by apoplexy. How crazy is this wailing mob that slobbers all over themselves, given ANY opportunity to denigrate this president? So called ‘conservatives’ actually crying because some whack, anti-everything Trump, brands them as a ‘God Forbid’ “racist/bigot!” These ‘spineless’ dweebs are in the same basket (basket case) as that vaunted “Greatly Overrated Putzes,” a.k.a. the GOP! They want to be as PC as the whacko PC crowd that ‘brands’ the burning/looting, racist, bunch as some ‘righteously driven’ anti-racist group that are just laying their souls bare in their “grief.” President Trump pointing out that there were TWO violent groups, and not just CONDEMNING those “White Supremacists,” was, for the whacks that ALLOW the burning and looting, with destruction of private property, for those “righteous anti(fa)-racist,” the same as “legitimizing white supremacists and the KKK!” As John Stossel would say, “GIVE ME A BREAK.”
