Antifa Beats the Shit Out of Bernie Sanders Supporter, Thinking He's "Alt-Right" Because He... Was Carrying an American Flag

So that's the real definition of "alt-right" employed by the left now?

When they're justifying their terroristic attacks, they claim they're "fighting Nazis."

But the definition of "Nazi" turns out to be: "someone holding the flag of the nation that defeated the actual Nazis."

John Sexton has the story and video.

Now I'm going to say something, and I don't want it to be read as criticism of Sexton, or anyone else pushing this story.

I understand why the story is being framed the way it is. I do.

I want to talk about why the story can only be framed the way it is.

Without finding fault for anyone on the right for framing it this way.

But the way people on the right are framing this -- and I completely understand the reasons why -- is, "Look, Antifa says they beat up Nazis but they beat up nice liberal Bernie Sanders supporters."

Now, that's the way I framed it too.

The reason the story is framed this way is to dispute the media's argument that antifa only beats up Nazis -- as if that were legal or acceptable.

But it's an argument that CNN clown Chris Cuomo, son of one American governor and brother of another, has made on TV, justifying Antifa's terroristic violence.

You can read Nolte's excellent article on that, or John Sexton's very good piece.

Cuomo -- and I'm sure he did this in coordination ("collusion") with CNN editorial -- implicitly, deliberately endorses terroristic violence by CNN's ground troops in Antifa, while using Yasser-Arafat-like slippery language in doing so, so he can claim he was just saying "Nazis are bad."

That's a lie. I'm sure his script was vetted by CNN and he wrote it several times so that he could justify terroristic violence by the left while retaining some slight scraps of plausible deniability on the point.

But getting back to the why-is-the-story-framed-this-way problem:

Many normal conservatives have been beaten in the street, had eggs thrown at them, been maced in the face, etc.

The media provides air cover for its ground troops, Antifa.

So people frame the story in this way -- a Bernie Sanders supporter was viciously attacked by antifa! -- because the media and city police forces have already decided that conservatives are not human and are not owed civil rights and that it is now de facto legal to brutalize them in the street.

People resort to emphasizing this was a Bernie Sanders supporter because we all understand, and we have all internalized, that the media and Democrat-controlled police forces have deemed us subhuman noncitizens who are of a lesser caste and may be beaten by the higher castes as they choose.

So we all have to emphasize that this is a Bernie Sanders supporter. We could not, say, emphasize that the lesbian girl who was maced in the face by Antifa for the crime of wearing a red MAGA hat was a Trump supporter, because we know that that, in the left's mind, makes her a valid Target of Opportunity.

So we are forced to accept their definition of us as subhuman and beneath the protections of the law. We could not say "They did this to a Trump supporter!" of Charlie Kirk being assaulted (yes, dumping a drink on someone is assault and battery) because we have internalized it that, in the dominant, leftist-controlled rules of engagement, We deserve that.

But this Bernie Suppporter? He doesn't deserve it.

And that's what makes it bad. He, unlike us, does not deserve to be clubbed in the head on the street for carrying an American flag.

We deserve that. He doesn't.

Again, not criticism intended of John Sexton or the many other right-leaning writers writing the story in this way. As I also do not intended to criticize myself for framing it this way.

I point this out only to emphasize to you How bad the situation is.

We all have internalized we have no hope of having anyone in the media point out that beating conservative citizens in the streets is a social evil that borders on open civil war.

So we have stopped even trying.

We have simply moved on to complaining now that the left's fellow travelers are being beaten in the street, hoping against hope that maybe that will make them stop justifying beating conservatives in the street, as Chris Cuomo does on the Super-Patriotic American "news" outfit CNN.

But that is itself hopeless. All the left will do is chide antifa for having chosen the wrong target of the wrong caste to beat in the street for the Nazi-like crime of carrying the American flag.

But they will not criticize antifa for beating citizens in the street. Just for beating the First Class Citizens of the left in the street, mistaking them for the Second Class Citizens of the right, who you're allowed to beat.

Nay -- morally required to beat.

As Matt Yglesias does here.



At some point the shooting will begin, and people will be killed by the violence they supported, justified, and promoted -- not just the "right" targets, but the "wrong" leftwing targets too -- and these monsters will ask: "How did this happen?"

Well: It was all you.

People respect the social compact of civil peace only so long as that compact protects them as well.

When they see that there is no longer a social compact of peace, they will begin violating it themselves.

And once that starts in earnest: there is little chance of stopping it. Civil wars start off slowly, then enter a period of dramatic escalation, then enter a period of slow, grinding murder for years, until finally, so many people are dead and so much misery has been suffered that people are finally willing to make peace with those who have been murdering them.

Ask the populations of any country who've gone through a civil war.

But I'm sure our very smart media class knows all this, right? They're The Experts in everything.

Just ask them! They'll tell you on twitter, after they liken domestic terrorists to those who liberated Europe from the actual Nazis:



Do you geniuses honestly think you're the only people who've thought "Gee, maybe some political vigilantism/terrorism against my enemies would be fun and profitable"?

I know from the way you write you news reports, you don't think that. You think the right is eager to start murdering people.

So why, Experts and Geniuses, do you insist on starting a civil war with people who you are convinced are arming themselves in the teeth only to start killing progressives?

And then, of course, they whine: "We've been made to feel unsafe to express our First Amendment rights!"

Really?

Tell me -- What's that like?

Because the people actually, currently being victimized by real violence want to hear all about what it's like to merely have back-of-the-mind fears of some future, possible, hypothetical violence.

The idea of only facing hypothetical, possible, future sounds pretty sweet, at least to those of us actually, in reality, being targeted for violence.

33 It takes time for stuff like this to filter down to the "silent majority". And that's especially true when the Press deliberately lies and covers up stories. The Majority just want to be left to live their lives in peace. They want to have jobs, raise a family, and maybe take a vacation some time. We are at the stage where they are uneasy at the way things are going. That can change quickly. I just hope people are angry enough to turn out and vote for our side in the midterm elections.

It is not just confined to Antifa, but much of the hard left believes this. What do people think all the kneeling during the National Anthem is about? Or when leftist tear down statues? Or when they burn the flag?

They have been telling us they are our enemies, not political opponents, but straight our enemies. No different then if a enemy army was marching across the country. The desired goals are the same: Overthrow of the United States and the establishment of a government more of their liking.

+++++++++
Nice post, Ace.
Although the question is rhetorical, here's my take: They encourage outright violence because they believe at least one of two things are true:
1) The police at all levels are on their side, and able to suppress what they're trying to trigger, thus handing them a bloodless-for-them victory.
2) The military is on their side, and able to suppress what they're trying to trigger, thus handing them a bloodless-for-them victory.

The way I see it:
- The first part of #1 is true, the second part is not true.
- The first part of #2 might not be true, the second part might be true.

They're making one hell of a gamble either way.

97 Coulter was on with Howie Carr, mentioned some guy was tired of some band head guitar jerk mouthing off about politics (hating Trump I guess). So the guy yells something, and (quietly) gives the finger during the next song ... band guy asks him up toward the stage, guy figures it will be a debate, crowd holds him, band leader starts punching him, crowd cheers ...

must be video of that somewhere ... or did I dream it? ha, no sure she said that. but so much crazy shit going on like that, it all kinda flows together in a "purple haze" or something ... purple rage of the left.

Wrong approach. They're an international terror group. Send the National Guard next time the act up, bust them down and lock them up. RICO isn't really needed here. It would be nice to get the money men behind the curtain, but the problem goes away if they get their heads cracked by riot police and then thrown in prison. They'll have a serious recruitment problem if we just enforce the damn riot laws as they are on the books right now.

125 It's not so bad as all that. "Internalizing" the idea that the media see us as subhuman is simply accepting what has been true since - in my personal memory - 1964. The framing of THIS story is simply a way of forcing them to back off their support of antifa, or to come out of the closet as full-on anti-American. Which anyone who has been listening knows already.

But it will at least either embarrass them or, more likely, open a few more eyes.

Yes, it is. Not to add that carrying an American Flag is a sign of being a Nazi. What does that say.

Which just leads to my point about not going to these demonstrations bcz they are no-win. Becz they are what the Media and Left wants. Let them beat up on each other bcz there are no targets from the Right. That's a nice little wake up call for the Left who thinks they are safe from Anti-fa. We need them to wake up and have more Walkaway people.

Look at the disappointment from the Unite the Right Rally when no one showed up. We win with those outcomes. That's when people begin to doubt the narratives.

When my enemy is trying to get me to do something, I'm smart enough not to do it. Let the Left turn on itself. Maybe that poor kid that got beat up will have second thoughts about what he believes. Maybe he'll join the walkaway movement.

179 Silent Sam came down Monday night in Chapel Hill, long after he should have and no thanks to the people who should have done it. And when it finally happened, when the statue was toppled and students sang and social media celebrated, the adults in the room stepped forward to remind us why this had taken so long. University of North Carolina officials were first, hiding behind a nameless statement sent out late Monday. Did that statement acknowledge how the 1913 statue had long been a source of pain on campus,...

In other words, it's okay to break the law as long as it is for a 'good' cause. Like when that black vendor in St. Louis got whomped by SEIU thugs for selling American flags outside a town hall event (they got off too), or like Bike Lock Prof who literally split open a Trumpian scalp and got no jail time, good causes abound these days.

188 >>.No, you mouth breathers, Trump is the symptom, not the disease. And you better pray that he's the cure.

right. They don't get that people voted for Trump because people were sick of the Republican Establishment lying to them, selling them out, prioritizing the small number of high-dollar donors' interests over the great number of middle class voters' interests, ignoring them, and even actually just flat-out insulting them as peons and untermenschen at an increasingly speedy clip.

I keep asking: If you're so Elite, how did you not see this coming?

Elites who are actually elite see political trends rising and make adjustments. They co-opt the necessary parts of the coalition of the dissatisfied in order to keep a majority coalition together.

This "Elite" class did not see anything coming and made no adjustments at all. They just started insulting those who questioned their rule as "hobbits" and "wack-a-doos."

But they're Elite. They caused the very uprising that resulted in their exile, and did not see it coming, and took no action to co-opt the coalition aligning against them.

But they're elite.

Just ask them!

That's the thing, Jewells. I understand the fear the average lefty or NeverTrumper has, because that is exactly how I felt during the Obama years. I kept waiting for the Sword of Damocles to fall each day he was in office, chipping more and more of our liberties away. It is exhausting to think your president does not have your best interests at heart and would prefer to see you dead. But I never, EVER dreamed of behaving the way the left has. Americans don't do that. The unhingement of the left over Trump, and how quickly the peace-and-love left swings to violence, is unsettling to behold.

This unrest is different from the 60s which was mostly the baby boomers throwing a temper tantrum at their parents, in other words a clash of generations.

The current situation is different in that it is purely ideological, the young may still be more represented on the left side but they did not come up with idea themselves, they are being led there by their teachers.

It's the complete divide between the media and academia and the rest of us that is scary.

219 Maybe they want to start a civil war.
Maybe they are making the following calculation: in the best case, they win. In the worst case, they lose, but they inflict lasting damage to the US. Since they hate the US so much, it's worth it.
They control much of the press in the US. The official press in other countries sympathizes with them and the alternative press is much less professional and well-developed. So they can count on foreign sympathy and support.
The main organized opposition, with free Internet discussion, citizen journalism, citizen political movements, and a middle class that does not depend on the government for its existence, is in the US. If they defeat it, that's it for now.
In addition, they may be overestimating their strength, because they are constantly told that the laws of history are on their side.
But if they don't succeed, they'll just try somewhere else in 10-20 years.

250 Anyone who supports, or fails to condemn, Antifa is guilty of sedition. Why this organization is not targeted by the FBI the way the KKK was is an interesting question. Muslims kills Christians and Jews throughout the mideast with impunity and anyone who comments on that is Islamophobic. Antifa beats up Trump supporters, and if you say anything you must be part of the alt right (which I really don't think has a sufficient definition to be a meaningful category). To me, the second it became ok to heckle conservatives on campus, is the day the war went public. And still we sit hoping someone will make it better. With these two scalps on Mueller's belt, understand the message. Anyone who works in this administration is a target. And anyone who wears a MAGA hat is a target. The war is here and has been for more than a decade.

I know these things, ScoggDog - but I am talking in a more sweeping sense. Not individual incidents, but in the idea that is America. We are exceptional, as Ronnie so eloquently articulated. The idea of America is clashing right now with the idea of Nihilistic Utopia. I think, in God's Providence, that the exceptional America will prevail.

259 Here's some food for thought:

We've had the same politicians, and the same pundits around for decades. The leftists very rarely move to the right; the allegedly conservative ones almost always move left. Nevertheless, being a politician or a political commentator basically means having a very easy life with very little work.

That state of affairs may be coming to an end soon. Look at those commentators on TV and ask yourself, "Which of these 'men' will meet violent deaths?"

I hope David Frum and William Kristol will be on that list.

262 History aptly shows that when the people start to fight back, when you make the average American take time away from his family and job to defend our freedom, it doesn't end well for the other side.

Ow I'm perfectly fine beating these people again at the ballot box b cute there is so much at stake. But if they make me get off my chair to defend liberty, it's going to get ugly for them, to the point it will be a generation before they even feel safe to open their mouths.

263 So since the geniuses in the media determined that since Fa is "anti-fascist", if they attack you, you're a fascist. Because that's what they attack.

So this guy is a fascist, right? Anybody attacked by Fa is a fascist, because Fa calls themselves ant-fascists and the media is trying to teach us all how to have a really simple mind.

This isn't France or Germany or Russia. I don't know exactly how it begins.
But keep in mind the British North American Colonies had a higher standard living than Europe, and it was consistently rising when AR1 was started by wealthy and middle-class merchants and farmers.

271 The Portland Antifa types are whining that this is getting a lot of publicity, while an Antifa guy who refuses to identify himself was allegedly hit in the head by a police munition at the same demonstration.

He has dramatic pictures of a large crowd control round sticking out of his helmet. Unfortunately, people noted that the helmet metal around the round is sticking out, not in. (The guy works in a metal shop.)

He also claimed that he went to a hospital (also anyonomous), was so seriously injured that they had to install a shunt to remove the blood from hemorrhaging, and yet was still released in 24 hours.

Needless to say, the guy will never turn over his helmet or his medical records for independent review, but he did succeed in his goal - slandering the Portland police.

There's no way Germany lets that happen, so a mutual tariff is where we end up instead of bidirectional non-tarifed trade.

Total bullshit. Sessions was instrumental in Trump's campaign. It goes back to an open letter and some memos Sessions wrote to the country about the Establishment. It did not come from "out of the blue". He was there from the beginning.

A federal grand jury indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and his wife on Tuesday evening on charges of misusing campaign funds for personal expenses. Funny how this happens on the same day as Cohen and Manafort.

I think he was scheduled to win that district and am wondering what can be done? I believe he beat his Rep. opponent by a lot and I think the 2 people with the largest amount of votes, regardless of Party would run against each other.

It's the same as "out over my skis". If you're skating or skiing aggressively your weight is forward. Your center of gravity is actually just in front of the sweet spot on your skates of skis.

372 "I may be naive, but that's what I think. In the end, I think the good guys win. In fact, I know it.
"

imo we need to act like our founders to make the good win. We can't wait for the third heaven and earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

or at least, we can have "peace in our time", or we can wander in the wilderness. The world has mostly been run by the corrupt, or as Western Civ progressed, the less corrupt tried to avoid the pitfalls of the masses rebelling.

Now we have the corrupt of WallSt and their paper trillions, their shadow unregulated derivatives quadrillion, just trying to keep the people of the last free hill (to not die on) of America to stay quiet as they marginalize us with third world imports. And so many (even Trump) play in the paper investment world of contrived trillions, and 2Big2Fail/Jail leveraged (almost) trillionaires.

Too many of the middle have their retirement invested in China and the oligarch "manifest fiat currency destiny". Even Richard Dreyfus on tucker said we need to reinforce the preamble ... teach civics. It will be a road to recovery based on that, not oligarch NWO control of humans as widgets.

You talking about Jon "The Jersey Devil" Corzine? Yeah, tearing down the ring-fence between customer and broker money to go all-in on peripheral European sovereign bonds when it is convenient for his buddy in the white house (and his buddy who used to live there) to have that happen should have landed him in a #meInTheAss prison for a very long time. Curiously, nothing happened. Peculiar.

411 A few weeks ago I saw an antifa street peddler artist working on his really shitty geometric paintings. He was sporting full on fascist regalia including facemask. Our city doesn't permit street peddling outside of organized crafts fairs.

He had already spilled his turpentine wash and oil paints on the sidewalk. His canvases were yellowed old birch kitchen cabinet doors - his slapdash display blocked the whole sidewalk. I can appreciate art if said art is well executed. His art was just terrible. He claimed to have sold one of his works.

The police just cruised by. Nothing to see here, folks.

Posted by: Tami at August 21, 2018 08:51 PM (Enq6K)

447 I've mentioned before that I work in the media, in a job where I field letters from angry readers, both left and right. For whatever reason -- probably because of that godawful coordinated nationwide editorial whining about Trump calling us names -- the lefties have worked themselves into a fury this week. I've been swamped with Trump-hating letters.

Allow me to illuminate the thinking that currently motivates the left: They are absolutely, positively convinced Trump is Hitler 2.0. Yeah, they say that about every Republican, but this time they really, really, really believe it. They are 100 percent convinced they are living in a nascent totalitarian state, and that prison camps are just around the corner.

And they are quite open about the fact that they regard Republicans as fully complicit in this. I have read more than one letter the past week from lefties who state very clearly that supporting Trump renders a person less worthy of moral concern, if not transforming them into an enemy. Honestly, I think the only reason we aren't in a full-blown civil war yet is that lefties still feel icky about guns. If this were the America of 1918, where comfort with firearms was universal, the shooting would have already started.

If you want my opinion on who's responsible for us reaching this state: I'd place the blame on responsible liberals who refused to build a firewall to their left to keep out the crazies, and the conservatives who weren't forceful enough in demanding they do so.

Here's why: Every outraged lefty I encounter -- every single one -- is worked up about Trump because, essentially, he's "mean." They go on at great length about his supposed offenses, but at the end of the day, that's what it boils down to: He ridicules and insults his opponents and uses crude, demeaning language.

Now you know and I know that us righties have been putting up with this crap from the left for decades -- heck, the reason we love Trump is because he's the first guy who's willing to give it to the left as good as he gets. But for the left, it's a completely new experience. They've never had someone on the right turn their own tactics back on them, so they lack any sense of scale. When you are accustomed to dealing with polite, proper cucks who simply mumble an apology and roll over and play dead if you scream RAAAAACIST loud enough, any sign of sharp defiance assumes enormous significance. It feels like the other side has broken some unspoken but absolutely fundamental contract -- and if they've broken THAT contract, why wouldn't they break EVERY contract?

Though they wouldn't phrase it this way, in the minds of many lefties, there is, or was, an unwritten amendment to the Constitution that says "conservatives have to play by different rules; conservatives aren't allowed to be mean." And so when Trump violates this unwritten amendment, emotionally, it feels to them as if he's violating the written amendments, and they feel like it's only a matter of time -- days or weeks, probably -- until he simply declares the First Amendment null and void or something.

The solution would have been for both sides to make clear at some earlier date that there wasn't actually a secret amendment to the Constitution that applied only to conservatives, and that when conservatives responded tit-for-tat to liberal abuse, it was healthy, if heated, debate, and not the End of Democracy. That would have given the left an incentive to behave, which in turn wouldn't have given them the false confidence that led to their being blindsided by Trump.

But that's not what happened. And now the left is in what I can only describe as a pre-civil war state. They have, in their own minds, arrived at a point where they think it's morally acceptable for SOMEONE ELSE to attack and even murder conservatives -- not themselves, of course, but some other righteous leftist, like those antifa guys. All they require now is the last push to get to a place where they'd be willing to pull the trigger themselves.

So there's nothing to do but sit back and wait for the spark.

448 295 So they just did a panning crowd shot at the WV rally and it is strikes me every time that Trump gets more people than a mid-level rock concert (it would be fuller with a top-level rock concert, but that's what it would take).

Is this unusual in our history? I can't remember politicians ever crowds like this, and can't fathom it in a midterm year. I don't know whether to be pleased or distressed.

I was interested in politics as a 12 year old in 1968, and ever since, first voted in '76, and after thinking of this, the only 2 I can think of were Bobby Kennedy in his final few months for both being JFK's brother on the rebound and standing up for the anti-war movement of 1968, and the Black Hezooz because voting for him washed the sin of racism from white-guilted minds.


But nothing to compare to the solid 2 years of Trump campaign rallies. Nothing else is close, even the JEF in 2008. It was more just an event to be seen at, not an emotional revival the likes of a Billy Graham concert likes Trump creates.

450 By the way, that law that the DOJ won't enforce, 18 U.S. Code 241 is the one that contains the part that makes it a federal felony to go in disguise on the highway and deprive someone of their Constitutional rights. In my complaint to the DOJ Inspector General I point that out. Everyone of those Antifa clowns earned a 10 year Federal Prison sentence for being part of that conspiracy.
Can you understand why I am so angry at the US Attorneys for their 148 year history of not enforcing that law against people who conspire to violate 1st and 2nd amendment rights? Bastards - the coming civil war is directly their fault.

You make a good point, Scogg. If one is going to a demonstration where conservatives are going to be attacked by Antifa blackshirts with masks, one should plan on rumbling. Good old fashioned beat downs with fists and sticks and bats.

Instead, our side (except for Based StickMan and a few bikers from time to time) stand there and take the bonks over the head with bike locks.

455 This is, among other things, a failure of governance. This is why we have the FBI and the NSA. They're supposed to be infiltrating these violent groups, gathering data, getting convictions. I mean, even ignoring state governments. Sure, you expect New York to let these people run wild with a wink and a nod, but what about Alabama, or Idaho?

We have a Republican president and a Republican Congress. If that still isn't enough to get federal law enforcement involved when leftist gangs are chasing normal people from the streets, things have already gone past the tipping point.

What an amazing, brilliant comment, chilling but true.

"Honestly, I think the only reason we aren't in a full-blown civil war yet is that lefties still feel icky about guns. If this were the America of 1918, where comfort with firearms was universal, the shooting would have already started. "


You are one hundred percent correct. As their Antifa shock troops get bolder and the police even more complicit in the violence, initially a few run-of-the-mill liberals will try some violence themselves and then a few more and then guns will become lefty hip. The spark will be when the Right shoot back. As Ace wrote, THAT'S out of bounds. I wish it would happen after I'm in the ground but it is accelerating exponentially and probably not far off.

Like Alan Alda might have said on MASH at the time. He'd probably told his buddies, watch me call this guy a n****r without him being able to do a thing about it! The guy just looked at him for a second, and blasted him in the nose. He was all bloody and aghast! He was just asking a question, not saying it himself! The guy said, I'm just answering your question. You're welcome. Funny! Freedom of speech can have consequences.

What if somebody were to pin a note to Jim Acosta with a K-bar through the heart? What if the note said, "This stops now. It is far past time for propagandists and social media moguls who control the narrative to stop telling lies and start telling the truth about things. Keep up your lies, bias, and uncivil war against us and you will be next. We will not stop until you stop. You started it, but we will end it."
