The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

What to do? We are a law-abiding people, or at least we used to be. We are a country that respects its traditions and history, or at least we used to be. We are a country that is quite tolerant of others, or at least we used to be.

But the dilution of American Exceptionalism that began in the mid-1980s with uncontrolled immigration was fueled by its antecedent...the overthrow of American education by the Left. So we are left with a rapidly increasing population, driven by immigrants from countries with no tradition of freedom and the rule of law, and everyone is being taught a carefully truncated view of our roots, complete with guilt for every unequal outcome and sub-optimal result.

And we are left with a country in which its founders are vilified, its history is ruthlessly edited, and its tradition of freedom and liberty is carefully mocked and challenged.

WeWillTread.jpg

This is a direct and unequivocal challenge to America. The Gadsden flag represents so much of our country that it cannot be separated from it. And anyone with any knowledge of our country's history understands that the message of that flag is martial. There is no subtlety, no accommodation. The bastardization of it by the current crop of anarcho-fascists is a clear signal, and one that will eventually herald a much more brutal period.

Are we approaching the time during which we all have to make a choice...to defend forcefully the country that we have built on the foundations constructed from the blood and sweat and toil of our ancestors, and reinforced by freedom-loving people from around the world, or to take a knee and watch as it is destroyed, and rebuilt in the image of East Germany or Venezuela or Cuba?

μολὼν λαβέ indeed.

30 The whole point of the Gadsden flag is that if you "tread" on a poisonous snake, it's pretty much likely to fucking kill you. Maybe the snake will get hurt a bit too... but you're in for a hurtin' if you make that mistake.

That's the heartbreaking part. There are systems in place to address these statues of Democrat slaveholders and KKK Grand Wizards. These are public works if they're on public property, and you don't have to crush your buddy's skull toppling them. You can go through the system as designed and have them removed. Heck, you got coprophilia and pot legalized. What's so hard about getting some statues removed?

56 One big lesson in all this asshattery is that the cops were NEVER there to protect you. That's not their job, and never has been or should be.

Their job is to make it somewhat undesirable or difficult for criminals to hurt you, and to punish those they can who try and/or succeed in hurting you, so that you don't have to. Deterrence and Retribution. But never Protection.

Protection has ALWAYS been your own responsibility.

It's been a "thing" for a while, this digging through someone's twitter history in order to out them for past comments. However, this seems to have been amped up incredibly since the latest #BLM stuff started.

It will ruin a lot of normies' lives, but here's hoping it also convinces most people that social media is just not worth the aggravation?

I wonder what deep seated flaws are built into other races which can't be changed. The articles never go into that. I also never hear about what excellent qualities are present in 100% of whites that we cannot possibly rid ourselves of.
As a race, if we cannot eliminate our flaws, I think we should be praised for how well we have turned those flaws into a source of strength. We have built a society that fits us to a tee and uses both our strengths and weaknesses to sustain it. Rather than fight to change the unchangeable, maybe we should just start ejecting those who don't fit in. There's the whole rest of the world to enjoy outside our control and we shouldn't face abuse at home for being what we are born to be.

135 That flag was designed by morons, and not the good kind. You'd think one of those bozos would have had the sense to look up 'tread' in the dictionary if they didn't already know what it meant. It means 'step on, walk on', not 'choke'. A picture of a giant Monty-Python-style boot crushing the rattlesnake would have made sense and (I hate to admit it) been rather witty, but this one's just stupid.

The word 'tread' is related to 'treadmill' and 'trodden' (as in 'well-trodden path'). Through most of history, grain was ground into flour locally, and the grinders were sometimes powered by water (lots of mills in place-names in the U.S.), or wind ('windmills'), but often by muscles, usually either slaves or donkeys, though we hear of some free men in ancient Rome so poor and desperate they had to take temporary jobs on the treadmill. Some mills had handles you would push while walking around in a circle (there's one near the end of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), but a treadmill was powered by walking on it so the grinding part went round and round, all day long, while the slave/donkey stayed in one place. Just like a treadmill in a modern gym, but useful for more than just staying healthy.

Then again, these fools are not the first to screw up 'tread'. There's a Del McCoury song in which 'trod' is used as if it were present tense (he needed a rhyme for 'God'), but 'trod' is the past tense of 'tread', so it doesn't really work. The dictionary forms are 'tread, trod, trodden', much like 'get, got, gotten'. Here endeth the pedantic mansplaining to the ignorant little boys of Antifa, at least for the moment.

But if they do actually get arrested, thanks to his state's new "no bail" policy, they will be released.

152 Shorter version of my prior rants: the "nation of immigrants" of old was based on the shared assumption, between immigrant and native born, that the immigrant desired to be, and would be, assimilated into our prevailing American political culture and traditions.

But they (a) dropped assimilation ("melting pot") in favor of the "tossed salad" /multicultural model, while (b) radically increasing immigration in absolute numbers and as % of population and (c) radically increased proportion of immigrants from Third World/socialist countries the furthest from our native political traditions.

This is contrary to every historical antecedent for immigration, and operates as ongoing national suicice. If we don't turn this around, the country is lost to our children (or even in our lifetimes). Or, at best, might have to be divided in salvageable remnants.

What will happen is more of the same, exactly what's happening now. Migration out of cities, out of "blue" areas. That will be the biggest physical or practical change.

Hard to say whether these recent, gigantic turns of the ratchet downwards (the science-free imposition of controls on Americans in many-states, and now the race-baiting/racism Gleichschaltung) will lead to corrective action or reaction.

Not looking good. Too many Americans are now fearful, ignorant people with little practical knowledge, and on the latter disaster the "national leadership" consists of a few rando anonymous people caught on phone video, and a handful of bloggers. I suppose there's a handful of elected officials too, though so few and quiet as to be invisible.

160 56 One big lesson in all this asshattery is that the cops were NEVER there to protect you. That's not their job, and never has been or should be.

Their job is to make it somewhat undesirable or difficult for criminals to hurt you, and to punish those they can who try and/or succeed in hurting you, so that you don't have to. Deterrence and Retribution. But never Protection.

Protection has ALWAYS been your own responsibility.

Posted by: Warai-otoko at June 16, 2020 11:12 AM (6FeV1)


True. The police are employed to enforce the law. If no law has been broken, well...good luck.

You must be physically assaulted or at imminent risk of bodily harm, or your property is being damaged or stolen, before the police can legally take real-time physical protective action.

Yeah. I saw the welding and the first thing that came to mind was the old joke about the JEDR who was trapped on the escalator for hours after the power went out.

Bolt cutters will cut chain link just as readily as they cut chains. More readily, in most cases, since lock chains are often hardened, while chain link fencing is designed to be readily cut.

These are not laws, they are temporary executive orders issued on the whims of madmen (and madwomen) Governors.

"Congress shall make no law ... abridging ... the right of the people peaceably to assemble..."

Playing in a park I would say is people peaceably assembling.

So are we saying now that Governors do not have to follow the Constitution of the United States of America?

Is there something in the New York Constitution which allows Governors to establish laws based on their whims?

Does declaring a "national emergency" or "state of emergency" just negate every right in the US Constitution and give Governors the power to do whatever they want?

You know, if we had any journalists worth a damn, these questions would have been asked months ago.

185 A lot of people hide behind the internet and battle symbols. Some take to the streets and face no retribution for their actions. Some pull down statues, damage property and generally cause mayhem inconsequentially. But things get a little more interesting when the opposition actually stands up and forcefully responds. I've seen this scenario play out in a lot of places around the world, and while access to weapons in those places adds a different dynamic, the fundamental issues are always the same. In the end a majority of decent people generally rise up from their daily lives because they have watched them destroyed by a forceful authoritarian minority. If people want to go that route at some point they will be engaged and crushed. This movement is largely dependent on servile politicians in a position to either coerce people or expose them to their fellow travelers despicable intentions. It's also dependent on shaming or forcing people into compliance. That will never happen in our country. It will never get to that point only because the pushback will come long before most people submit. Our country wasn't made to live in that type of slavery.

198 Shorter version of my prior rants: the "nation of
immigrants" of old was based on the shared assumption, between immigrant
and native born, that the immigrant desired to be, and would be,
assimilated into our prevailing American political culture and
traditions.



But they (a) dropped assimilation ("melting pot") in favor of the
"tossed salad" /multicultural model, while (b) radically increasing
immigration in absolute numbers and as % of population and (c)
radically increased proportion of immigrants from Third World/socialist
countries the furthest from our native political traditions.



This is contrary to every historical antecedent for immigration, and
operates as ongoing national suicice. If we don't turn this around, the
country is lost to our children (or even in our lifetimes). Or, at
best, might have to be divided in salvageable remnants.

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

He can and should be faulted for not coming out stronger on one side or the other on those first nights of rioting, but I don't see what good option he has now.

237 I see xnycpeasant had already made the central point about assimilation.

Combo of assimilation and - not sure there's a term for it - but the cultural/educational collapse in values and standards and mindset that was simultaneous (60s onwards). That combo produced today.

There's actually still a great reserve of sensible American attitude out there, yes even in blue states. But the political class (which only exists because tolerated by the electorate) is *so* dishonest, weak, corrupt, and useless, and the institutional arrangements so degraded (judicial supremacy, primarily, as that's the key in both vetoing popular will and imposing things against it), that there are no levers to pull.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid you may be right about that.

At the time of the Charlottesville fiasco, I don't think you could have fit all of the USA's white supremacists in a medium-sized arena. Out of disappointment, the MSM seems to be going out of its way to manufacture more of them through fear.

It's only so long, when the world is telling you that all of society's ills are being caused by the white man that someone, sooner or later, is going to react to that. Because any 'Conversation on Race' is, in reality, a trap to flush out the white 'subversives' who need to get their minds right, the only people who are going to be brave enough to present a counter-narrative are going to be the people who are too marginalized to care what anyone thinks about them.

The good news is that the most rational person who can bring some semblance of reason into the discussion is DJT. The bad news is that liberals don't want to know who the next person to deliver that message is going to be.

If not stopped pretty soon, they will begin to nibble-away on the Red States, choosing locations where they know the local mayor and city council are fellow travelers, and the Republican governor is judged to be a coward. And when the Federals are also judged cowards or impotent. Trump may order the military to do something, but will they follow the order? Events the past two weeks make that questionable.

political violence is a knob, and they can turn the heat up and down,
with things like protests, and riots, all the way up to destruction of
property, and sometimes murder. But for the vast majority of folks on
the right, it's an off and on switch. And the settings are Vote or Shoot
Fucking Everybody. And believe me, you really don't want that switch
to get flipped, because Civil War 2.0 would make Bosnia look like a trip

Here in Colorado, we have a choice between Cori Groveler, or John Hickenpooper. Cori is unopposed on the Republican side, and even though there are some ethics charges against Hickenpooper, I think there's no way he doesn't secure the Democrat nomination, and then presumably he beats Cori in a cakewalk... unless conditions change between now and November. Which they might.

Point is though, we have to make that choice: shitty Republicans in vulnerable seats, or serious attempts to install people in those seats who won't be uniparty types, and risk seats that are otherwise winnable by the Gopes.

278 I'm of the opinion that 'racism' as such doesn't exist. In any case, outside of a Christian metaphysic that includes Christ's admonition that to hate your brother is to "have already committed murder" (to be on the path to murder) hatred isn't even a coherent crime or sin because it isn't attached to a solid commandment with a real consequence. Like sex without biological rooting plus metaphysical rooting (and he made them male and female) it is bound to simply drift freely and come to mean whatever a person is able to demand so long as they have support. We acknowledge that it is wrong to hate a person without reason, and that when one hates a person for a reason, it is for the reason of a sin (and so it is hating the sin--) and none of that necessitates a category 'racism' to be employed.

More than this, 'racism' as a category easily encompasses observations related to self-preservation which are not colored by any hatred, and can be used easily to underhandedly justify programs of brute equalization (i.e. "equity".)

295 152 Shorter version of my prior rants: the "nation of immigrants" of old was based on the shared assumption, between immigrant and native born, that the immigrant desired to be, and would be, assimilated into our prevailing American political culture and traditions.

But they (a) dropped assimilation ("melting pot") in favor of the "tossed salad" /multicultural model, while (b) radically increasing immigration in absolute numbers and as % of population and (c) radically increased proportion of immigrants from Third World/socialist countries the furthest from our native political traditions.

This is contrary to every historical antecedent for immigration, and operates as ongoing national suicice. If we don't turn this around, the country is lost to our children (or even in our lifetimes). Or, at best, might have to be divided in salvageable remnants.

296 I think a lot of people's problem is targeting.

Who or what do we go after? And what happens afterward?

We can't really from any sort of units as they will instantly get infiltrated, then exposed with a mix of lies and snark.

That's not counting any attention paid by those who would be concerned with any "competition".

I think the day of actual protest and demonstration having any real affect are gone because the corporate media can nullify or distort any message. Plus any usage of the normal means of gathering is immediate trouble even for innocuous speech.

There must be some coordination or it will mostly go to waste.

Plus the opsec that's necessary to prevent infiltration does not make coordination any easier.

I have no clue how to fix that or what form of counter attack would be effective.

Just what I've said here could make me a target if the right people were to see it.

303 one problem is that the President is hampered from doing anything by the APA law that basically means all of his EO's get 'intepreted' by the agency and subject to judicial review, meanwhile he will be held responsible if things spin out of control regionally, where he is, if he is a good statesman in our tradition, not to interfere unless necessary, because to do so would over-extend the federal government's reach and weaken its authority.

It has no meaning. Nobody other than marginal freaks would even use the term - and if pressed they couldn't define it for you in any practical way related to life on the planet.

It's a measure of the "hallucinogenic" nature of the slanders and disinformation, and mass hysteria among select demos (suburban airheads driven by ignorance, absurd guilt, and/or indoctrination) that this ridiculous concept of "white supremacy" even exists.

The governor of MN, the first night, would have been no more ridiculous if he had invoked "large groups of extra-terrestial beings with 3 legs and purple skin" as a factor in the Mpls riot. THAT is how absurd it is.

"Hallucinogenic" used as the historian David Goldhagen did to describe German anti-semitism when You Know Who was in charge - utterly disconnected from reality.

When Antifa comes to your nice suburban city, tries to stir up shit, and then a group of actual men from your town kicks their asses and sends them home, will that change anyone's opinion?

They're enacting the next step of the plan to achieve communist rule.

Step 1. Useful idiots create anarchy
Step 2. Soviet backed communists come in to restore order, singing the national anthem and thumping a bible(examine USSR propaganda when moving into new territory, nationalistic and tradition oriented)
Step 3. Shoot the useful idiots

Naturally the useful idiots don't understand that there is anything past step 1.

Naturally some of this is other opportunists trying to operate the old soviet networks and front groups in the US but for the most part the lemmings are just continuing the path they were last set on.

You'll note no leaders on the left are enacting step 2, ergo there is no one to follow through on step 2.

Because they're losing. This all started years ago, long before Trump came along. They weren't able to spy on Trump's campaign because the institutions were working normally, they did because they have been infiltrating our institutions for decades.

If Hillary had won they would have taken complete control. But Trump won and he is busy dismantling their infrastructure and so they are lashing out trying to stop him.

They are not operating from a position of strength right now. What they are doing looks very similar to the Soros color revolutions he has been running around the world most recently in Ukraine. A revolution designed to look like a popular uprising and supported by the media to control the narrative is textbook Soros.

They are desperate not powerful. They had to pull the trigger too soon.

You have never read or understood the insurrection act if you believe that.

The President, by using the militia or the armed forces, or both, or by
any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to
suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful
combination, or conspiracy, if it--



(1) so hinders the execution of the laws of that State, and of the
United States within the State, that any part or class of its people is
deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the
Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that
State are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or
immunity, or to give that protection; or



(2) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.


In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to
have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the
Constitution.

Clinton far ahead in Electoral College race: Reuters/Ipsos poll

In the last week, there has been little movement. Clinton leads Donald Trump in most of the states that Trump would need should he have a chance to win the minimum 270 votes needed to win. According to the project, she has a better than 95 percent chance of winning, if the election was held this week. The mostly likely outcome would be 326 votes for Clinton to 212 for Trump.

Trump did gain ground in South Carolina where his slim lead last week expanded to seven points, moving it into his column from a toss-up. Unfortunately for him, he lost ground in Arizona, which is now too close to call.

Additionally, he is facing a challenge for Utah's six Electoral College votes from former CIA operative and Utah native Evan McMullin. The independent candidate is siphoning votes away from Trump in a state that is Republican as any in the nation. In some polls, McMullin is even leading.

Clinton has also maintained a lead in Florida and Pennsylvania, which have a combined 49 Electoral College votes. Ohio remains too close to call.

329 Look, modern 'white supremacy' is a complete Immanuel Goldstein movement, either seeded by people who are not genuinely interested in what's good for 'white' people, or created as a backlash among common people against 'diversity' and such - the latter is probably most of it because I've known unironic Jewish and Hispanic 'white supremacists' - their positions were generated out of having to deal with 'diversity'.

In some sense, 'white supremacy' among the common people is a very simple and solvable problem: if you gave these people exactly what they wanted, they'd stop being 'white supremacists'. It is from this combination of observations that you can conclude that it is a chimera, a ghost, or even a poltergeist of a movement.

It is the Strong Horse phenomenon--again.

When we didn't burn D.C. to the ground and didn't bulldoze the rubble after the coup attempt, it was viewed as weakness. After we willingly locked ourselves down like illiterate serfs, it was viewed as weakness. Now foot soldiers have been deployed ostensibly in response to "racism," which is now code for "white people."

I honestly think the election of Trump set everything into motion primarily because he was viewed as a Strong Horse by people who had been demoralized, and that wasn't allowed.

The folks in the LA 'burbs who kicked Antifa's ass have given their communities hope. We need to learn from this very quickly.

The answer here is primaries. Gardner didn't get primaried. Gardner sucks. He's weak and far too soft on far too many things. That said, I will hold my nose and vote for the ratfucker because he still won't be as bad as Hickenlooper (who, not satisfied with ruining the state government for a couple of terms, is running for national office).
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at June 16, 2020 12:00 PM (Q8c/L)


Yeah, this is not a typical scenario, but others elsewhere are faced with this dilemma. Imagine if Gardner WAS primaried, and the person going against him was saying all sorts of things that suggested he'd be a vastly better Senator.


And imagine Gardner had a legit shot at beating Hickenlooper, which right now, he doesn't.

That would be the problem for voters. Go for the new guy, or stick with the entrenched guy, hoping he eeks out a win?

In the revolutionary war about 3% of the population took up arms in the conflict. I would expect about the same today. 3% of the population of Texas is a million.
I took an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I meant it.

I've already been in a war, I know what they are like, should have died there, but didn't. If there had been any way to avoid this fight, while honoring my oath, I would have been in favor of it, but we are past that point.

Even back in the Let It Burn days, I opined that the next Civil War would be largely confined to the cities and that the end result would be informal militia/gang "warlords" controlling turf because the people who lived there would demand protection and the government would not be able to provide it. Note that the home turf of the Latin Kings in Chicago was not demonstrated, not looted, not burned.

I also opined that the result would be increasing numbers of failed Blue cities and states and a national compact where entire functions that were fiscally federalized in the 20th Century (education, housing, welfare) would be returned to the states, resulting in a smaller, less powerful federal government more focused on its true functions.

The immediacy is because they know barring intervention Trump is going to win in November and that will be a devastating blow to everything they have been working on for decades.

Look at the market today. May retail sales were up 17.7%, best month in history. The jobs report was amazing. Housing is poised to take off. Despite their best efforts the economy is rebounding. That was their best chance to take Trump down and that didn't work so now it's violence.

Many people on our side think the blues will be pussies and they will EARLY in a civil war.

But, give them six months ramping up with militia training and they will be tough to defeat, bottle up in the blue cities, and then starve them.

Any CW2 that goes full bloody will be LONGER than you think.

We on the red side still have no major militias buildup yet and we already should have militias in neighborhoods all over the country ready to link up like the Minutemen of old.

More true than you think. I believe this revolution is being led by red diaper babies who have learned this history from birth.

We aren't in 1917 now; we're in 1905. The goal of the revolution this year is to break the people's faith in their government, not to win. Winning comes later.

Remember, when the Tsar was deposed in 1917, a broad social democratic coalition led by Kerensky took over. The Bolsheviks were never more than 5 percent of the population. But Lenin put together enough of a coalition of revolutionaries, fellow travelers, and useful idiots that he was able to topple the monarchy, and only then did the Bolsheviks turn to eliminating their allies.

I think there is a tendency for people to still rely on the media and the polls they know are lying to them but can't break free from their message of doom.

Look around you. Do you see Biden getting 1 million requests for a rally? Do you see mile long boat parades to support Biden by his enthusiastic voters? Do you see Biden at all?

There is no way in hell Slow Joe Biden is beating Trump right now and things have been as bad as they get over the last 4 months.

Does anyone know a single Trump voter who isn't even more enthusiastic to vote this time than in 2016? And new voters are coming in. Not everything can be fixed by voting but they damn sure will get worse if we don't and if Trump has an unburdened 2nd term he can tell Vlad he will have a lot more flexibility.

I don't think so. Like 1905, the lumpenproletariat may think they're winning something, but the vanguard of the revolution has no intention of winning at this point. Their goal is to delegitimize the governing structure to ultimately replace it with something new, not to take it over.

479 The thing Twitter's obsessed with but nobody else is covering fits into this well: players at Oklahoma State are refusing to play because one of the coaches was pictured on a fishing trip in an OAN t-shirt.

480 The only purpose for BLM is to raise money for democrats and to distract from the fact that Biden was credibly accused of rape.

Tucker sure was getting himself into a tizzy about BLM last night. More popular than Jesus. Not to mention Republicans.

What I didn't hear was the names of the leaders, let alone their biographies.

BLM is "popular" the way sunshine and daisies are. Sound good in theory, but drop someone in the middle of the Sahara desert and they'll think less fondly of sunshine. Daisies... I don't even think I could pick them out of a police lineup, but wait'll people find out they're allergic to them. They won't be so popular then.

"Slight correction: the left still has power and is indeed doing everything they can to combat 'white supremacy' by intimidating everyone they can into submission. People are terrified; everyone in blue circles is recanting the accidents of their birth.

Even the Supreme Court is afraid. Sissies."

All true. But would require control of everything to do what the Left wants now: to eliminate anything it has defined as "white supremacy" and implement a one-party dictatorship (led by distinctly non-Marxists, but still). But for some reason, and I am listening and reading and trying to understand why, the Left thinks it can do this now. Maybe it is just the cowardice it has observed.

489 "White supremacy" when used by the racists in public today (Dems, "civil rights" "leaders", AOC-type airheads, unshaven fringe left idiots) is exactly a ridiculous chimera. There is no program, no policy package, nada.

If one redefines it to mean discomfort, or resentment, or even bigotry, in reaction to demonization, well of course there is, but there was before, too. Kind of a permanent background noise thing with many humans of all varieties (not the smarter or more observant or decent ones).

The term is used exclusively as part of a package of ridiculous lies (see MN governor's surreal statements on Mpls Night #1). It's not a substitute for "prejudice". And in that use it is utterly disconnected from reality.

They really aren't acting like Biden is 10 points ahead, huh?

Why gin up your base if you know you're going to win?

Work on building the coalition, increasing the vote totals, and establishing a mandate.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, fighting terrorist in Nakatomi Tower at June 16, 2020 12:17 PM

This is the tell, right there. If Biden were up as much as is being reported, he'd be coasting to victory.

The Retail Sales number that came out this morning was a shocker - up 17%+, indicating that we really could have a V-shaped recovery. Economists thought that Trump was crazy to even mention the possibility, and now that is more possible than before.

If we come rocketing back, Trump is a shoo-in.

494 The point about the "revolution" actually being a coup by a tiny group is correct, but I find most analogies with 1917 for other places to be weak, unless one is talking about a typical country - one with zero history of reasonable or other than harsh top-down misrule.
Posted by: rhomboid at June 16, 2020 12:25 PM (El6T/)

Oh, I agree. That's why this is 1905, not 1917. The goal is to destroy. Replacing comes later. I'm not saying it necessarily makes sense, but I am saying that the intellectual leaders of this thing have grown up with the history of the successful Marxist revolutions that all follow the same pattern. Delegitimate the regime, broad movement to replace the now-illegitimate regime, vanguard eliminates the rest of the coalition and rules through terror to move the nation to the new world. In our case, the new world has a Green New Deal, Medicare For All, guaranteed annual income, free college, a right to housing, open borders, etc. There is already an ideology. It's 1905, man.

And along with "sentencing reform", Trump's biggest mistake. Of any president in living memory, he's the one who absolutely has the least need to "do something" (i.e. cynically or dishonestly pander).

But you go to your cold civil war with the loudmouth NYC real estate developer you have, as a SecDef once said (or something like that).

500 Funny thing about the fist holding the snake. I've lived in AZ my whole life and let me tell you that snake can still bite and does. In fact it will bite in the space between the thumb and index finger. Here is the scenario for most snake bites reported to the AZ Poison Control. Male under age 25, BAC >0.05, remote location with female in attendance, bitten between thumb and index finger.
It seems as if Antifa is following the typical pattern of a drunk kid trying to impress a girl at a desert party.
This will not end well.

509 Here's the deal:
PDT is fighting the long battle. He's not going to do anything because 1. That's not how he rolls. He lets people expose themselves, and 2. It's not bad enough. It's just bad enough that, with the rallies starting, it'll be The Summer of Riots vs.Rallies,so people can see exactly what they'll get with each side.
Come September, there'll be lots of ads with chaos on one side of the screen and flag-waving patriots on the other. At the same time, even CNN will have to admit, in some twisted, lying manner, that PDT's pulled off the impossible -- he's brought back the economy, making it the first time in history a president has set new records economically TWICE in one term.
Finally, for the October surprise, there'll be a presser about indictments. No, not HC or BO or Jarret, no way. But intel -- complete need to reform, because everyone's gone-- wray, comey, mccabe, weissman, page, strzok, baker, priestap, clapper and brennan, all included. The dims will howl and squeal, only to find out they have been trapped, and it's too late to do anything about it.

Landslide. Bonus: the dim party is crushed for at least a generation.
