The Violence of the Left

Anyone else seeing a pattern here?

democratic party violence.jpg

(h/t Lizzy in the previous thread for the graphic)

Now, I know what many of you are thinking. You want to ask me, "Muse, what does rocket scientist Sally Kohn have to say about all of this left-wing violence?"

Glad you asked. Here is Her Magnificent Dumbness in all of her resplendent glory on Farcebook:

Sometimes right wing extremists do violent and hateful things. And sometimes — as it would appear happened today at a Congressional baseball practice — left wing extremists do violent and hateful things. These are the moments to search our souls.

I do happen to believe that conservatives are habitually more hateful and violent than progressives, that those on the right end of the spectrum have historically been guilty of perpetuating more hatred and violence than those on the left. Slave owners were infinitely more violent than abolitionists. Segregationists extraordinarily more hateful than civil rights protesters. It is indisputable that throughout history, more evil has been done by those seeking to prop up and perpetuate misogyny, homophobia, transphobia and racism than by those seeking inclusion and equality.

But pointing out that one side is historically worse in this regard doesn’t absolve the rest of us. Just like acknowledging that conservatives are more casually inclined toward sexism or homophobia doesn’t mean the left is beyond reproach. In fact, if we think we’re answering the higher call of justice, shouldn’t we hold ourselves to a higher standard? When I hear Islamophobia on the right, I’m angry. But when I hear Islamophobia from my progressive brothers and sisters, I’m devastated. We’re supposed to be the ones standing strong against hate. In all its forms.

I spent a good part of the last two years trying to teach my eight-year-old daughter not to hate Donald Trump. She didn’t get the idea to hate Trump from conservatives. She absorbed it somehow from the liberal bubble in which she lives, picking it up from peers or side conversations or maybe even from me if I wasn’t being careful enough to mind my own consciousness.

I remember going to rallies during the election and chanting “Love Trumps Hate.” The sign I held didn’t have an asterisk. I didn’t mumble some addendum of exceptions afterwards, that what I was saying didn’t apply to Trump or conservatives or Republicans. The extremities of hateful rhetoric coming from parts of the conservative right during and in the wake of this election have taken my breath away. I can’t believe that people not only still believe such hateful things but suddenly feel safer to say them out loud. And it is also true that I have also been taken aback by how many decent people I know feel what can only be described as hate toward not only Donald Trump but the people who voted for him.

I’ve talked to people in the corners and cracks of America who voted for Trump and they’re convinced that people like me hate them. And too often they’re right. Sure, people like me are convinced a lot of Trump voters hate people like us and maybe some do. But I’ve taught my daughter that two wrongs doesn’t make a right.

Martin Luther King wrote, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” I know it is hard to ask that we love even those who we feel represent so much darkness and hate in the world today. But what do you think fighting for justice and equality means? Yes, sometimes it means fighting their hate and opposition. Sometimes it means fighting our own. Sometimes it means being the change we want to see in the world. Being that love and kindness. Not being full of hate.

I pray for the victims of the shooting. I pray that those on the right will be less hateful. And I pray those on the left will be less hateful, too. In the meantime, I’m only responsible for myself. Imperfect and searching.

Ace is woke, but I stomped him.

23 The problem Sally has is that disagreement about policy means "hate" in their world.

If I say unchecked immigration is a bad idea - you say I hate Mexicans and Muslims.

The problem is you can't have a civilized discussion with me on policy because you instantly put me into an "ism" bucket as to avoid the basic give and take of a discussion.

If you think people are going to continue to be understanding when you claim that anyone who thinks a government spending freeze means that old people must die and poor people must be put out onto the streets - then we are already at war... and it seems your side has yet again spilled real blood over politics. It won't end well until you stop the nonsense you just wrote.

If any good comes of this shooting, it's that leftists will wake up and look in the mirror and see what they've become. It looks like she's almost there (at least at times). We'll have to see if that's a change in mentality or just a momentary blip.

Worldwide Hate: Protester Knocks over Top French Right-Winger at Campaign Event

Top French Right-Winger Left Unconscious After Campaign Clash

PARIS ( AFP ) -- A top candidate for France's right-wing Republicans, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, was left unconscious Thursday after a clash with a protestor while out campaigning for this weekend's legislative elections in Paris.

Kosciusko-Morizet, widely known by her initials NKM, was insulted by a man while visiting a market in central Paris and then lost her balance when he tried to throw her campaign leaflets in her face, an AFP journalist at the scene said.

After falling, she blacked out for several minutes possibly after hitting her head, before being revived by emergency services.

There is no real enemy of the Left on the Right and there never has been.

There is the Left, and the rest of us normal, as moral as we can be people who do 98% of the work in America, fight in her wars and mostly just want to be left alone.

There is a tiny, tiny fringe group of lunatics that aren't really on the "Right" that get their antics pinned on us Normals by the Left.

193 Slave owners were not "right wingers". I doubt there was much of any political connection to slave ownership. It was just part of society. Anyone who had a plantation or farm had slaves. They had to. It also turned out that freed blacks had quite a few slaves, proportionally.

But ... talking about slave ownership, the Western left loves to ally themselves with the only slave ownership societies left in the world - the muzzies and various African countries. And that's TODAY, not 150 years ago.

This reminds me of the hippie dipshits of the 60s. They were all about peace and love and equality ... and yet they idolized India and the Hindus, with their caste system - which made slave ownership look like child's play.

229 the left has always seen only two possibilities for the future: either the working class and other oppressed people rise up and create the Workers Democratic Republic (ie, a dictatorship), or the Ruling Class creates a Fascist State which causes the working class and all the other oppressed people to rise up and overthrow the Fascist State, after which the left gets to create its Workers Democrats Republic. Bill Ayers can be the Minister for Truth and Education.

Either way, much of the left generally seem to think that violence is the only way to get to their final objective, since voting into power people like Obama Pelosi and Reid never seems to finish the job.

pretty much also why they keep turning any sort of crime into a demand for more gun control. It's hard to set up a dictatorship when so many people who oppose you have guns.

253 One quibble -- Charles Guiteau wasn't a Democrat. He was also a Republican. He shot Garfield because he felt he was owed a civil servant's position (local postmaster, I think) and was PO'ed that he got passed over for someone else. It was the norm back then to pass out sinecures to party loyalists, and he was expecting one. It's what led to the modern-day civil service exam and hiring, which has worked out so well to make quality public workers.

280 The big divide in America is over the proper role of government in everyday life. The big difference today (versus in past epochs) is that there are so many Americans (of every political party) who think Washington is the right venue to decide important domestic issues.

Our politics no longer has orators, on either side of the divide really, who can debate this critical argument, and so dumbshits like Sally Kohn pass for public intellectuals, and intersperse ridiculous statements like this one with calls for the violence like we saw yesterday.

The left is uniquely culpable for this violence.

In Virginia we had a proposal to relax concealed carry requirements for off duty police officers, retired police, and current state's attorneys. The rationale back then was to support their carry rights and they in turn would support relaxed requirements for everyone.

Well, that turned out as you'd expect. They took their relaxed requirements and we never heard from them again.

In a wide-ranging interview Paglia talks about Donald Trump's successes, how Chuck Schumer emboldened the "resistance," why the left can't condemn Islamist terrorism, and "the cold biological truth that sex changes are impossible."


http://tws.io/2rk7aSi

never heard this excerpt before

...In it she (Jeffrey's) argues among other things, that the pharmaceutical industry, having lost income when routine estrogen therapy for menopausal women was abandoned because of its health risks, has been promoting the relatively new idea of transgenderism in order to create a permanent class of customers who will need to take prescribed hormones for life.

Why should your confession of faith mean shit to be Sally Conjob?

As a striving neutral observer THAT'S the fucking problem I have with the left--it's the idea that THEIR perceptions have to be addressed--and it's only "civil" to accept THEY think you're deplorable human beings.

Their convinced of the "Southern Strategy switch".

So FUCKING WHAT?!! Not everybody DOES. It sure the hell ain't obvious why the Dems didn't alert the unions (which had the definition of racist beginnings--to price black people out of the labor market) that the party's were going to switch.

It's like liberals don't fucking know WHAT is a point of contention and WHAT isn't!! If you understand that people can construe events different from you, you understand that they are under no obligation to entertain your suspicions that the other side are rotten bastards, IF they accept all your premises.

Get some FACTS, Sally Conjob! Not tenuous theories that only can be followed if the other side capitulates to your specious narrative. DEMS, DEMS, and DEMS were the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation. And they have been pre-1968 and post 1968 the party of hyperventilation. It's same pandering spirit by which William Jennings Bryan (Democrat candidate for president) made the administrative matter of keeping on the gold standard of currency "crucifying [people] to a CROSS OF GOLD!" that has the current most single influential Republican wheeling granny off a cliff.

And nobody should have to first buy in to your bullshit special pleading to understand your apprehension about "conservatives" and violence. I understand if you "believe" this--I understand that you "feel" this way--but all these Dems killed people post-1968 "when it all switched".

The Left's penchant for violence is just an aggravating factor. Their absolute hate of America and Americanism is the real issue.

This is why Barky should have been impeached when he started his World Traitor Tour (to mention one of tens of examples). That America-hating shit should never have been allowed.

All Federal Senators and Representatives should be paid no more than Minimum Wage.

Posted by: Hikaru at June 15, 2017 02:32 PM (9TK8E)


In Texas, the Legislature meets for 180 days every 2 years and they get 8000 for the session, plus per diem. The beauty of that is threefold: 1. In 6 months, there is only so much damage that can be done, 2. 3/4 of the time the legislators have to go home and live under the laws they write, and 3. They have to have jobs. (Although on #3, some of them, particularly on the D side, get around it by being paid lobbyists and/or attorneys for people who have business in Austin that does not directly involve them). Anyway, it is a fine system that was instituted in 1876 by a post-Reconstruction constitutional convention that wanted to limit the power of Austin over their lives. The relevant government in most Texans' lives is their county.

Posted by: artisanal 'ette at June 15, 2017 02:52 PM (fceHP)

343 Just stumbled on something that is simultaneously mock-worthy and infuriating.

It's a "nonpartisan" nonprofit that gets OODLES of $$$ from foundations and rich donors to get youngsters to "do something" to make the world "a better place." They claim to have signed up 5.5 MILLION young people who follow their campaigns. The name of the org is "Do Something":

https://www.dosomething.org/us

At any given time, they have dozens of do-gooder campaigns ongoing. And every single one of them falls into one of four distinct categories:

1. Useless, ludicrous self-esteeming-boosting bullshit.

2. Brainwashing kids with leftist propaganda.

3. Groveling in abject submission to Muslims.

4. Vacuous virtue-signalling campaigns that do nothing to actually solve problems.

Some of the campaigns make one want to laugh in derision. But others make you want to punch a teddy bear in rage. A few examples:

Sincerely, Us
Let’s Send Letters Of Support To Every Mosque In The United States

https://www.dosomething.org/us/campaigns/sincerely-us?source=node/1141

Pineapple Push-Ups
Play a game where the punishment for sexism is push-ups.

Guys are more likely to shut down sexist comments when (a) they’re supported by people like you; and (b) they have a clear and easy tactic to use.
Have at least two guy friends agree to do 10 push-ups when they say something sexist. Call each other out by saying "pineapple."
https://www.dosomething.org/us/campaigns/pineapple-push-ups?source=campaigns

Just Because
Tell people, “Just because __ doesn’t mean they want to fuck.”

https://www.dosomething.org/us/campaigns/just-because?source=campaigns

Uncover the Truth
Share a pledge on social to keep propaganda out of schools.

At this very moment, The Heartland Institute, a think tank funded by Big Oil billionaires is sending a “science textbook” called "Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming" to every science teacher in the country. The Heartland Institute’s “textbook” denies the fact that 97% of scientists agree that not only is climate change real but also extremely likely due to human activities. These greedy billionaires want to confuse teachers and students with propaganda.

I used to have an in-ground hot tub. Wood fueled, because I love CO2 and getting rid of wood. Anyway it would take hours to heat up. But in the dead of winter, you haven't lived until you've experienced running outside in a bathing suit, snow falling down around you. Pouring a drink and relaxing in 100 degree water.

Then the booze starts to kick in and you start to climb out a little bit, then a little bit more, until you're sitting your asscheeks down on 32 degree stone, with just the bottom part of your legs in the water. And still hot. Wet snow clinging to your body and you don't give a hoot.

Like I said, I don't understand the science of it but that's how it works. I'd be willing to bet the producers of the show knew damn well the effects of alcohol and hot water and got exactly what they wanted.

Except for the rape charge, I would imagine.

---
That's because, as a liberal you don't know what caveats you have, or addenda of the 3-5 word chant/slogans until you think of them.

Of course, on the positive side, that's about as self-aware as I've heard from a lib in years. But just like she thinks she wholly meant a 3-word chant without exceptions, a lot of us have seen a different show with every lefty slogan we can think of.

"Choice"? (Not schools)--and people who are convinced that it's actually a baby are just bigoted haters who want to take rights away (when whether it is a right or not hinges on whether it's a separate entity or not). "Ends don't justify the means" meet "By any means necessary" (for, you know, THE ENDS!) "Women can do anything a man can do" meet "Not if men are mean". You only THINK that you've thought through your mantras--but that's because self-reflection is a quality the left lacks to a great extent.

Again, we're dealing with your profession of faith. Yes, you chanted "Love Trumps Hate"--you probably even managed that it was farcical to believe that the presidential election could be fixed(!!) for the two weeks between the debate and Clinton's loss and 24-hour turn around to float the Russians as the cause.

Yes, you believe your own bullshit. That's my problem with the left. You're not that virtuous or that honorable and definitely not that sincere. If you were, I doubt that you would reduce what you otherwise mouth as "nuance" in 3-5 word slogans!

Yes, chanting those simplicities made you believe you believe them. Because it felt good, and liberalism is about feeling good, feeling vital, and self-flattery.

392 It's not a matter of not being self aware. I was a Democrat voter for decades. I'm a pretty self aware person. It's just that the media has been covering up for Democrats for years and so if you don't bother to investigate, you don't know the stories behind the stories. I imagine too that many people vote Democrat or Republican because they always have and because their parents did. It was only in 2008 that I did much more than read the campaign websites and listen to the debates. I read more than i ever had before about the Democratic Party and Barack Obama. Hence, I didn't vote for him and haven't voted for a Democrat since.

As to why they're more violent, i would suggest that most people on that weren't Christians in any meaningful sense. Rather many of them are militant atheists who have no God but the government.

Posted by: dagny


Apparently he claims he couldn't get 'it' up. He could go 'down' on her, which he did.

So perhaps not PIV rape-rape, but voluntary performance of cunnilingus on an incapacitated person.

Muldoon should have some ICD-9 codes for that.

411 Easy to notice that her hope for better behavior is an afterthought when it comes to the Left. Which side prevented folks from peaceably attending political rallies in Chicago and CA? Which side hit a innocent person with a bicycle lock?

And someone should tell her the slave owners were Democrats, as were the folks opposed to civil rights.

cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest

can stop the flow of blood to brain, causing brain tissue damage they say

but, they can't determine which it was

417 I don't think sally knows much about history.

Whether they were democrats or republicans is kinda silly. I'm sure each slaveowner had his own politics. But they weren't going to join the party founded to end slavery.

So, what's the point? Maybe back then slaveowners were evenly divided between democrats and mughwumps or whatever the pre-gop party was.

fucking stupid.

429 363 Dirty open secrete. Most affrican-americans are descendants of slave owners. The kind of slave owners that would rape a twelve year old. Polanski types.
Posted by: truth


Yup. This is one of the most shocking and amazing and least-known facts about American society.

Let's break it down:

a. 70% of Americans who identify as "African-American" are actually part "white" (i.e. have at least one white ancestor).

b. The vast majority of those white ancestors are from several generations back -- i.e. the 1800s or earlier.

c. Interracial marriage was illegal back then, and interracial "romance" was extremely discouraged, so the vast majority of these "liaisons" were either rape or something close to it. In most cases, it was a white slave-owner "having sex with" a female slave, who by our modern definition was not willingly "consenting," and thus was rape.

d. If the rape resulted in a pregnancy, it was almost certain that the slave-owner would deny parentage. The child would be born to a black woman in the slave quarters, and raised as black. These light-skinned "mulatto" slave children intermingled with the rest of the "black population, and are the ancestors of modern-day African-Americans.

e. Thus, a large proportion (the exact % is unknown) of people who now identify as "African-American" are actually descended not just from white slave-owners, but white slave-owning rapists.

f. It's almost impossible to get accurate demographic numbers on this issue, but it is very likely that, by many orders of magnitude, there are today MORE "black" descendants of slave owners than there are white descendants of slave owners.

g. Therefore, if "reparations" are to be paid, then light-skinned blacks (i.e. those descended from slave-owners) need to pay preparations to dark-skinned blacks (with no "white ancestors).

Like I said, I don't understand the science of it but that's how it works. I'd be willing to bet the producers of the show knew damn well the effects of alcohol and hot water and got exactly what they wanted.

The reason they tell you not to consume alcohol in a hot tub is because of the chancesfor severe dehydration and heat exhaustion.

436 zombie's probably right for most part but I'd think that since both owner and slave were born into the system, there'd be some cultural expectation of hanky panky with the owner if there was an attraction. Because the relationship was in itself coercive it'd be bad and a relationship that wouldn't exist today to create that sex. But I'm wondering if the white males behaved better than you assume.

I wonder how many mulatto and whatnot were running around the slave states back then? Were they more desirable and thus remixed or did they stand out like a sore thumb?

Posted by: Joe Inaugurating 45 in DC at June 15, 2017 03:15 PM (g9A94)

437 and I know it's fashionable to use the prejudicial image of the inbred white hick cousin humper (racist much?) but I think the only folks that got to hump the slaves were the owners, eh? That's about 3% of the population at best? That means we're talking about fancy folk, right? It'd probably be more like Django than 12 years? Some girls worked in the house because they were pretty and were ... um hopefully treated well enough.

But oh no WE'RE THE PROBLEM. If we only just agreed with leftists and there was no democracy then there'd be no violence. We must reach across the aisle here and surrender. It's the only solution clearly. We must all unify and come together and stop being conservatives and join the leftist cause so stop their violence.

453 "I do happen to believe that conservatives are habitually more hateful and violent than progressives, that those on the right end of the spectrum have historically been guilty of perpetuating more hatred and violence than those on the left."

The hell she says? Be it individuals, groups, or nations, the left has been a lot more prone to killing their way to succeed. Certainly I'd challenge her to demonstrate how the modern left is less hateful than the right. Hillary counted the Republicans as enemies. That wasn't on us.
