Black Snowflakes Triggered by Racist Banana Peel

Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

A threadline that only makes sense in the Idiocratic America of 2017.

A Greek Life leader accidentally sparked mass hysteria after he placed a banana peel on a tree in the woods — because he could not find a trash can.

The Daily Mississippian reports that three black students found the banana peel — and were apparently triggered by what they saw.

“To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset,” the interim director of fraternity and sorority life wrote in a letter obtained by the newspaper.

The president of one sorority told the newspaper that “bananas have historically been used to demean black people.”

“The massive discussion session wrapped up as more and more students stood and left the room – some in tears, some in frustration. NPHC members began texting friends to come and pick them up from the camp since no one had been allowed to drive his or her car up to the retreat. The remainder of the retreat was canceled later that night,” the newspaper reported.

Do these people breakdown in tears when they walk into the produce section of a supermarket and see watermelons?

And the university asylum is treating their hysteria as though it is legitimate.

“We are aware of the situation and are working to address it through appropriate channels,” the spokesman told me. “Since we became aware of what occurred at the fraternity and sorority community’s retreat, UM staff acted quickly in an effort to engage in discussion with students.”

What a stupid, stupid, stupid time to be alive.

Pelosi disavows Antifa

Via Cernovich Media:

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement [Tuesday] disavowing alt-left terrorist organization ANTIFA…

“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”

Full Pelosi statement here.

Kudos to Pelosi for denouncing Antifa by name. As The Daily Caller says, “This marks the first-time Pelosi has condemned Antifa and is quite possibly the first time she has acknowledged the group’s existence.”

Now, if only we can get Mitt Romney, John McCain, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan to do the same. Remember how their heads exploded when President Trump condemned political violence “on both sides”?

Sidebar: In case any leftie reading this doubts Trump’s full-on condemnation of the KKK, here is a “highlight reel” of him denouncing David Duke many times, over the years:

Also, if you would like, you can still join the whitehouse.gov petition to Formally recognize AntiFa as a terrorist organization.

Yvonne Felarca Flashback: The Feds arrested her in July. And Eric Clanton. So there is a little pushback on Antifa; and maybe we’ll see more.

UPDATE – It’s a trend: Berkeley’s mayor finally denounces Antifa, calling for the police to classify them as a “street gang”.

Arreguin said that while he does not support the far right, it was time to draw the line on the left as well…

Trump – and we – were just ahead of the curve. 😉

Are you on the side of reason, or the side of crazy?

This is what the crazy camp looks like.

This is also what crazy looks like.

And then there’s this fella, a college professor, of course, who says Texas is getting what it deserves from Hurricane Harvey. That’s also what crazy (and hateful) looks like. And he’s not alone. Far from it.

Let me know when you decide whether you want to be on Team Crazy or Team Reason.

 

This is a white supremacist? – Lefties, get real!

This is the “Patriot Prayer” guy, whose rally Nancy Pelosi recently smeared and shut down.

YouTube Preview Image

He identifies as a Person of Color (and is at least partly Japanese). He’s pro-gay marriage, anti-drug – but libertarian on drug policy, anti-racist, non-preachy / quiet Christian, and wants to build a healthy culture where people discuss differences with love and kindness.

Antifa surrounds and gasses him, for his trouble.

UPDATE: Antifa at work.

I don’t know what happened before or after this short clip; but, in the clip, 2 guys (called Father and Son) retreat from a feral mob of Antifa and are beaten down.

The Left shuts down another rally for peace

From the SF Examiner:

An Aug. 26 rally planned at Crissy Field by the group Patriot Prayer has San Francisco politicians from Rep. Nancy Pelosi to Mayor Ed Lee denouncing it as hateful, with warnings that past rallies by the group have attracted white supremacists. In the wake of this news, Joey Gibson, the prominent organizer of Patriot Prayer, has decided to speak out.

I added emphasis to “attracted”, because what a strange construction!

Media don’t say that Joey Gibson or Patriot Prayer are racist. No, no, no. They know it to be false (and you’ll see why, below). Here’s another example, “His group in the past has organized other events that have attracted white supremacists…”

They’re saying that, because white supremacist *troublemakers might decide on their own* to show up and manufacture trouble, Gibson/PP’s activities are then “hateful” and Gibson/PP’s constitutional right to peaceably assemble should be denied.

I’ve never seen a better indicator that the constant rumors might be true of David Duke, Richard Spencer, etc. being on the government’s and/or Left’s payroll. What a way to shut down anything with “prayer” or “patriot” in it! Create fake (or at least irrelevant) charges of white supremacy. But, to continue:

[Examiner] What do you say to San Francisco’s oppositional reaction to your rally?

[Gibson] …I constantly promote love. In love, you don’t see skin color. I’m trying to focus on who people are on the inside…There’s a lot of liberals I have common ground with. Moderates.

[Examiner] OK, if you’re down the middle, who do you agree with on the left?

[Gibson] In my view, half of America. Gay rights, being against the drug war…

[Examiner] In a Facebook live event you said San Francisco is disgusting. What did you mean?

[Gibson] Downtown San Francisco just looks horrible. I’m not blaming the left. It’s the hate, and the drugs.

[Examiner] Do you mean the homeless?

[Gibson] No. I used to be homeless…

[Examiner] What ethnicity are you, by the way?

[Gibson] I’m Japanese.

[Examiner] How do you feel about the political pushback?

[Gibson] Pelosi is lying for her own selfish reasons. She quadrupled the size of the rally. She made it more dangerous, with complete lies.

[Examiner] What about San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee?

[Gibson] It’s the same. It’s a complete lie for political gain [that the rally is a white supremacist rally].

[Examiner] But your rallies have attracted white supremacists, skinheads and neo-Nazis before. Why should anyone believe they will not, again?

[Gibson] We won’t let any extremists speak. We’ll let moderates speak. It’s a big part of the goal. We have 10 speakers now, and out of them, we have one white male speaking…We made signs saying we don’t support Identity Europa. I’ve literally disowned white supremacists [in his videos]…

Feel free to Read The Whole Thing; I tried to give the essence. Or you can check out Tucker’s interview with Gibson – who appears to be mixed-race, including Japanese-American.

Also, here’s a link to video where Gibson identifies as a “person of color” (his term) and emphasizes that Patriot Prayer is about spirituality and unity.

Now, what did Nasty Pelosi have to say about this guy? She called his rally “white supremacist”, flat out, then tried to imply that the Trump White House was behind San Francisco’s local decision to permit the rally.

This is a dark moment. The Alt Left – including Nancy Pelosi and other politicians who enjoy the Alt Left’s hateful violence and refuse to limit or deny it anything – has taken America to a very bad place. Half of America is to be stripped of its constitutional rights to speech and assembly, based on demagoguing the other half with lies/delusions.

I’m sorry to say that Breitbart’s role in all this was not good; they initially joined the “white supremacist” smear, and had to correct. Uncharacteristic.

SPLC continues to destroy itself (along with others)

The Southern Poverty Law Center was, perhaps, once a civil rights organization. Then extremists spent its core assets – in this case, SPLC’s good word and reputation – until they were gone. SPLC now routinely mislabels conservative and/or Christian groups as so-called “hate groups”, emptying the term of meaning and making the SPLC a bad joke.

Most famously, SPLC mislabelled the Family Research Council a “hate group” for its stance against gay marriage, and in 2013 that prompted an attempted mass-murder by a gay activist, Floyd Lee Corkins II.

SPLC is still going. Most recently, they mislabelled the D. James Kennedy Ministries:

I’m sure to oppose much of the rhetoric and positions of the DJKM, the FRC and others. Heck, I may even think they’re stupid and wrong, while I’m right. But they aren’t hate groups, until and unless they’re inciting physical violence and/or condoning criminals. And they aren’t.

The DJKM plan to fight back with a defamation suit. It will be interesting to see how it goes. I expect it to fail; “that’s our opinion” is a workable defense in many instances, and many in the law profession have a blind spot for the SPLC.

But I didn’t think Trump would win, either. The SPLC seems to assert as fact that the DJKM promotes “hate”. The SPLC’s claims then get repeated by the official media (minus Fox). DJKM lawyers will have to define objectively what it is to promote “hate”, then get the court to evaluate SPLC’s claims and intentions there. Who knows, they just might?

“So blue, I can’t begin to say”.

  • USC suspended a male student for an incident that likely never happened.

    He and girlfriend were shrieking in an alley, one night. They say it was horseplay. Sleeping “witnesses” weren’t sure, and talked about it. One of the sleepy-witnesses’ roommate’s fathers (!) reported it as a serious incident. Based on that distant hearsay report, the male student was suspended. A camera did record whatever happened, and USC refuses to release the recording. While student and girlfriend want it released, saying it exonerates him. When the girlfriend tweeted about that, USC threatened her, “Don’t ever tweet anything like that again”. As Ashe Schow puts it:

    The school believed that she was a battered girlfriend, too afraid of her boyfriend to admit what he had done. Why, then, did they retaliate and threaten her? The school was so sure she was a victim, it treated her like garbage…

  • Germany shuts down a left-wing web site, Germany’s version of Antifa.

    My feelings are mixed. To the extent that the site incited violence (and it probably did), the action is probably justified. But it shows how the State’s power can be used against anyone, Left or Right, at the State’s whim.

  • Google has stepped up its crackdown on “extremist” YouTube videos.

    Problem: The restrictions on viewing, search and sharing are themselves extreme – and are almost certain to be applied unjustly to reasonable Trump supporters, libertarians and/or conservatives. Because Google has already been doing some restrictions and even the wonderful Diamond and Silk were hit by those.

What happens when you “Punch a Nazi”? – redux

You sucker-punch an African-American. Brag about it on social media. Then get arrested for assault. Because you’re that stupid. Hunting suspected Nazis (or witches or whatever), the activity itself, will make you so.

Controlled Media watch

  • Congress readies a bizarre resolution against WikiLeaks.

    It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.

    “Resemble”? The resolution is saying that if you *look like* anything Congress doesn’t appreciate, they can strip your First Amendment protections and take the U.S. to war with you.

    WikiLeaks, remember, is non-profit journalist service. They publish leaks. The traditional, First Amendment approach is that *the leaker* commits a crime and can be punished, but *the journalist or publisher* does not. Someone wants an exception, it seems, for super-effective journalists whom the government can’t control.

    More from Julian Assange, here.

  • CNN endorses the undercover journalism of Project Veritas. Indirectly.

    A journalist snowed Breitbart employees by pretending to be someone they would trust. The journalist gave the story to CNN, who gladly reported it. Very embarrassing. But that is undercover “sting” journalism, like what James O’Keefe and Project Veritas do, and CNN and many lefties fulminate indignantly about them. Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e-s? 🙂

  • Google and Apple ban Gab (a Twitter competitor), censoring what you can do with your own phone.

    “Whatever is permissible under the First Amendment is what Gab allows onto its site.”

    …Gab’s Android app was available through Google’s app store until yesterday, when Google banned it, citing violations of its hate-speech policy

    While Android users can install unapproved apps, it’s a cumbersome process…

    It’s difficult to credit Gab as a white-supremacist site when its cofounder is a Turkish Kurd and Muslim…who says “I’ve never supported Trump for a minute in my entire life”…

    Google is being plain evil. They’re saying *you can’t use a non-Google app to say anything to anybody that Google would not like*. What’s next, Google censoring your private emails? Remember, email is a phone app.

  • Breitbart has more on Google’s other steps to punish conservative speech.

Flashback: When Facebook ex-employees admitted that Facebook routinely censors conservative news from their “Trending” section. Even if it was really trending.

More violence that Dems/media won’t disavow (or even acknowledge)

Feel free to post other recent incidents in the comments. (I can’t track it all.)

In fairness, there is one sane leftie: Let’s acknowledge Alan Dershowitz. Here he is, asking Democrats to repudiate the Alt Left for their violent opposition to free speech.

On the Confederate monuments: Be careful what you ask for

The U.S. Civil War killed or maimed huge numbers of people – as a proportion of how many people were alive, then. I’m told that, for two generations after the war, you would walk down the street in almost any U.S. city and see veterans missing an arm or leg, or women who were veterans’ widows.

After the war, the point of statues on both sides was to remember the sacrifice of those who had fallen. Both sides were American. Both fought because they thought they had a point.

The war was not about slavery until 1863 (well into it). The South fought to preserve the States against an encroaching central government. They lost – only after President Lincoln claimed a moral high ground, by finally making it a war to end the evil of slavery. Before then, in 1861 and 1862, the constitutional issues were primary and the South had a point. In short, they were not evil for fighting. They were Americans, fighting from a place of moral conviction (however mistaken).

The point of the Confederate monuments is to remember all that. The people whom you oppose so deeply are fellow Americans and they often (not always) come from a place of moral conviction (however mistaken).

It follows that the real effect of removing the Confederate monuments is to forget all that. Removal makes a statement that only one side matters: Your side, membership in which gives you the right to spit upon, and eventually to erase, your fellow Americans.

Whether a particular city or college or State should keep monument X is a local issue, that I won’t have an opinion on. But the overall push to remove the Confederate monuments is disturbing: it’s a push for ignorance and incivility. Forgetting the past, that’s the ignorance. And having only one side matter (yours) – that’s the incivility.

So, lefties: Be careful what you ask for. I will leave you with Charles Barkley’s perspective:

And Diamond and Silk’s perspective.

Russian-Nazi racist helped Black colleges

Scott Adams has been pushing a certain list of Trump accomplishments as President. Adams says:

1. Identify your most lefty, Trump-hating friend or family member.

2. Share this link of President Trump’s accomplishments while you are in the same room so you can watch them read it.

3. Watch as your lefty friend turns “cognitively blind” to the list of accomplishments as if it is not really there. Your subject will KNOW President has accomplished nothing…

…The list will simply be “invisible,” but not in the literal sense, only the mental sense. If you check back in two days, your anti-Trumper will claim once again no such list exists. Watch their eyes when they say it. It will be freaky.

To be fair, some items on the list are a bit exaggerated. But others, I had no idea about. Most of the media never told me. For example, this one about black colleges caught my eye:

February 28… President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday aimed at signaling his commitment to historically black colleges and universities…

“This is a great day for my membership and a great day for America,” said Lezli Baskerville, head of the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Education, an umbrella group for public, private and land-grant HBCUs…

Trump’s order moves the Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education into the executive office of the White House. It directs the initiative to work with the private sector to strengthen the fiscal stability of HBCUS, make infrastructure improvements, provide job opportunities for students, work with secondary schools to create a college pipeline and increase access and opportunity for federal grants and contracts.

Separately and also interesting, there’s the freeing of Aya Hijazi:

April 21… President Donald Trump hailed the return of Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian-American aid worker, in the Oval Office on Friday, telling the American charity worker she showed “great strength” in her ordeal.

“We are very happy to have Aya back home,” Trump said, seated alongside Hijazi, who returned from Egypt late Thursday. “It’s a great honor to have her in the Oval Office with her brother.”

…Trump was briefed on Hijazi’s case early in his term and directed his national security team to take steps to secure her release…

Obviously, this post’s title is sarcastic.

This is a Nazi? Lefties, get real!

I won’t endorse everything that Shiva Ayyadurai says or does, but he was one of the Boston Free Speech Rally speakers whom the “Punch a Nazi!” Alt Left protestors shut down on Saturday.

An Indian-American immigrant, he’s also an anti-GMO food activist who says “Black lives do matter” (a quote from the speech he gave, where the above pic was taken).

Oh, but he’s a Republican running against Fauxcahontas. That makes him personally guilty of The Holocaust. /sarc

Some slight good news: Missouri Senate moves slowly to expel Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

This is weird: President Trump tweeted, “I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. Our country will soon come together as one!”

Scott Adams takes it as a tactic to chip away at the Alt Left’s hysteria, tweeting “Pro tip: If your nemesis applauds your protest, you’re doing it wrong.”

Lefties now literally protest Free Speech – and America

At the Free Speech Rally in Boston yesterday, Alt Left protestors apparently assaulted an older woman who did nothing but hold an American flag. (I’m not sure if this was before or after the rally was officially shut down.)

Truly, we live in a time of insanity and mass hysteria – from the Left.

Why?

  • After eight years of President Obama, tens of millions of lefties thought that they understood reality; their view was inherently right and destined to prevail; their self-indulgent behaviors had, you know, Left-Wing Privilege. They thought they were the cool kids.
  • The election of President Trump – I mean, the very fact of it – stands as a massive rebuke and disproof. The lefties’ view might not be right and destined; at the very least, the world doesn’t work the way they thought it did and won’t automatically accept their excesses.
  • These millions of people are unable to handle being rebuked or disproven (or not the cool kids).
  • Rather than accept any correction to their views or behavior, these people are more unhinged than ever: mis-perceiving reality, saying and believing and doing desperate things, and egging each other on.

What happens next? One of two things. Either

  1. They’ll win – their mass tantrums will work – they’ll pull off a left-wing coup d’etat, ending what is left of the Constitution and Free Speech. Basically, America goes Commie. (Because anyone who would ever oppose that must be a Nazi.) Or,
  2. They’ll lose – they’ll provoke an even greater backlash (greater than electing Trump) in favor of America, the Constitution, and Free Speech under the Rule of Law. Basically, they’ll be facing years of therapy (and a few of them, jail).

Either way, it’s rough times for the rest of us. Under possibility 1, we lose totally. Under possibility 2, we win – but will have to put up with years of nonsense.

Alt Left does violence & destruction; media silent

If you’re with the Alt Left Media, you’re outraged – outraged! – that anyone would compare the Alt Left to neo-Nazis. Because “One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” (Mitt Romney, lying for them)

In the real world, it’s different. Recent example: Alt Left injures reporter, then blames the reporter.

Antifa protesters assaulted a reporter filming in Richmond, Va., on Sunday night, and later defiantly blamed him for the attack on their Facebook page.

The unnamed reporter at WTVR CBS 6 was filming the marchers, who were protesting a monument to Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart, when he was hit with a blunt object, WTVR reports. The protesters believed they could stop him from filming by “denying consent” even though they were in public, and video shows them blocking his iPhone camera before striking him in the back of the head…

An ambulance took the reporter to a hospital where he received four staples in his head…

According to the Antifa Seven Hills, the marchers were the real victims of the reporter who was “perpetuating rape culture” by ignoring their “denial of consent.”…

Antifa also argued that his presence as a white man was suspect…

“Due to the intensity and context of this time people are very scared of white men running full speed at them with iPhones as this is the exact behavior of a white supremacist [ed: or a responsible law enforcement officer]…,” Antifa Seven Hills wrote…

Antifa argued that the media does not have a right to report on them in ways they do not consent to.

Hey, Antifa: If you’re doing a public protest, by that action alone, you consent to be filmed. Too late to “deny consent”.

The media told us that, if Trump were President, reporters would be in danger! There it is…from the Left.

A quick search did not show this story covered on CNN, NYT, WaPo or any big-time outlet.

RELATED:

  • Missouri State Senator, Maria Chappelle-Nadal, calls for Trump’s assassination. To their credit, leading Missouri Democrats have called for her resignation. But she refuses.
  • A bust of President Lincoln is burned in Chicago. Locals say that locals did it, back on July 4. To his shame, a Chicago Democrat alderman now blames Trump via a fanciful tale of outside white extremists doing it.
  • Alt Left website, Vice, calls for the destruction of Mt. Rushmore.
  • Numerous Confederate monuments are attacked or destroyed.

    Remember, these monuments were put up to heal the vast wounds of the Civil War, making a statement that both sides were American and had fought well, with history worth remembering. To pull them down is to take a stand against national healing – and against America. Pat Buchanan is scathing about it:

    Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division and violence.”

    Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease.

Washington Post Advocates Political Violence, New York Times Opposes Free Speech

When Eric Clanton was sneaking up behind pro-Trump supporters and bashing them in the head with a bike lock, that was OK, according to the Washington Post. Because, y’see, he was ‘fighting Nazism.’

Antifascists argue that after the horrors of chattel slavery and the Holocaust, physical violence against white supremacists is both ethically justifiable and strategically effective. We should not, they argue, abstractly assess the ethical status of violence in the absence of the values and context behind it. Instead, they put forth an ethically consistent, historically informed argument for fighting Nazis before it’s too late.

You see, political violence is OK if you think the other side are National Socialists.

Psst, Washington Post, you are aware, are you not, that what happened in Barcelona yesterday was political violence on the part of people who believed they were opposing evil and injustice, right?

And their sisters at the New York Times are arguing that the Free Speech rights of white people should be taken away, because white people have too much power and they should be silenced so that the Rainbow Coalition can scream at them. I am not making this up.

We are, as Scott Adams notes, in the middle of a mass public hysteria. To people outside the current mass hysteria, it’s obvious that Donald Trump is not a Russian puppet, that Mike Pence has no desire to electrocute gay teenagers, and … most of all… that racism is not running amok in the country. To those of us with a lease on sanity, the deranged left look like crazed Salem witch-hunters. It’s only to the people who have lost their minds inside the bubble of hysteria that this makes sense.

Unfortunately, the people who run our mass media complexes are the ones who have lost their minds. Unable to come to terms with Hillary’s loss, they’ve retreated into a bubble of hysteria where perfidious Russians control the Government and half the country are racist Nazis who must be purged… violently if necessary.

Yes, this is a real thing. You see, we have to divide people into categories… for inclusiveness.

Now, every 1st Amendment advocate is a Nazi

As V pointed out earlier, Now, Everybody Who Isn’t a Radical Is a Nazi. The same goes for First Amendment supporters.

Here is the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Among other things, it means that horrible Nazi-leaning citizens get to peaceably assemble and demonstrate. So do horrible Commie-leaning citizens (Antifa) – if it’s done “peaceably”.

And what does “peaceably” mean? It does NOT mean smiles, rainbows, unicorns, or coming all unarmed. Nope. It means:

  1. The demonstrators co-ordinate with local authorities to prevent problems. Including (but not limited to) them getting a permit.
  2. If problems occur anyway, they obey lawful commands to disperse (and can be prosecuted if they don’t).
  3. Others can show up and counter-demonstrate, but…
  4. those others have NO superior rights or authority. For example, counter-demonstrators have no right to attack. It is NEVER “understandable” or “justified” if they attack, no matter how odious are the demonstrators’ opinions, signs or speeches.

Under those terms: Nazis, KKK, or even Commies (Antifa) are allowed to assemble and do a little march. This is why, in 1978, the ACLU successfully defended the right of neo-Nazis to march in Skokie, IL.

Here’s the point: EVERY American, no matter their color or background or life experience, must accept this. Because, that’s America. It’s how America rolls.

Now, what happened in Charlottesville last weekend?

  • Various groups, not limited to white racists, got a permit to assemble in a park.
  • They began to assemble peaceably.
  • BEFORE anything bad happened – indeed, even before the start time on their permit – Democrat Governor McAuliffe declared them unlawful and ordered them to disperse.
  • Counter-demonstrators did not have a permit, assembled anyway and, by many first-hand accounts and videos, physically attacked the demonstrators as they were dispersing.
    • Correction: The counter-demonstrators were permitted for 2 nearby parks; still NOT the park nor the streets where the demonstrators were.
  • After an hour or two of that: one person, possibly with the demonstrators or possibly mentally ill, rammed a car into the counter-demonstrators.

Horrific as that final crime was, are those counter-demonstrators who attacked people somehow “understandable” or “justified” or “morally better”? Not under the terms of the First Amendment.

So, should President Trump call out the demonstrators alone and give them all the blame? Not under the terms of the First Amendment.

Either you support the First Amendment, or you don’t. If you do, then you have to put your focus on neutrally defending everyone’s First Amendment rights, as President Trump does.

This goes for the colossal dummies Rubio, Romney, McCain, and all you Democrats and SJWs out there. If you believe in the First Amendment, you’ll unite behind the President’s approach. If you don’t, we know the truth about you.

It’s time to remember your Constitution and rally behind First Amendment rights (and other rights, like due process) for all citizens, especially the ones you can’t stand.

UPDATE – Icing it: Atlanta leftie mob tears down a Peace Monument. Because, yes, mobs are that stupid.
