Far Left Website The Nation: Why Does The Far Right Hold a Near Monopoly on Political Violence?

The author gets to this conclusion through 1. Cherry-picking anecdotes, some from over thirty years ago while ignoring all recent episodes of left-wing violence and 2. Relying on the Southern Poverty Law Center, the left-wing racialist activist group that inspired a gay leftist to take a gun into the headquarters of the Family Research Council, intent on committing mass murder and shoving Chik-Fil-A sammitches in their mouths.

Democrat Official: “I’m Glad (Steve Scalise) Got Shot”

Posted by V the K at 12:01 pm - June 23, 2017.
Filed under: Violence on the Left

Yeah, the violent left is just an isolated fringe with no connection to the mainstream party.

A Nebraska Democratic Party official is now in hot water. An audio recording was posted on YouTube Thursday with Phil Montag, a technology chairman, voicing how glad he was that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., got shot last week at a GOP baseball practice. Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News Thursday it was really his voice.

“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I’m glad he got shot,” said Montag in the audio recording.

Montag is now looking for a new job; Kleeb let him go after the recording became public.

“I wish he was (expletive) dead,” said Montag in the recording.

Also, at the time he was recorded, he was meeting with another Nebraska Democrat Party official who said she thought the Scalise shooting was “funny.”

Seriously, Nebraska Democrats, WTF is wrong with you? Is it the simple self-loathing that comes from belonging to a party that thinks you’re dumb, flyover hicks barely a notch above Trump’s “deplorables?”

I’m glad he got fired… for saying out loud what far too many Democrats were thinking. He may have been a relatively minor official in state Democrats don’t give two sh-ts about unless there’s a senate seat open, but his “kick people off health care” rhetoric echoes the rhetoric of the Democrat Leadership.

On that note, have Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama… any of the Democrat leadership… told their people to tone down the violent rhetoric since the shooting?

Update: Mr. Montag says his quotes were taken out of context. Now, I ask you, in what context would “I’m glad he got shot” and “I wish he was (sic) (expletive) dead” benign comments?

In related news, lunatic actor Johnny Depp’s insinuations about assassinating Trump have made him a hero to the left who now completely forgive him for that wife-beating thing.

This Is What Hate Speech Looks Like

Airstrip 1, as I reported earlier today, sent a man to prison for posting his nasty, violent thoughts about Muslims on Facebook. I think it is wrong for the state to punish people for speech; even this Posh Being.

Mere days after a Bernie Sanders supporter shot Congressman Steve Scalise and two black members of his police detail, a Connecticut professor posted a Medium article on Facebook declaring: “Let Them F*cking Die.” The professor went on to write that white people are “inhuman a**holes” who still prop up a “white supremacy system,” so black people should not help them if their lives are in danger.

“I’m fed the f*ck up with self identified ‘white’s’ [sic] daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslim, and sexual and racially oppressed people,” Johnny Eric Williams, associate professor of sociology at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., posted on Facebook Sunday. “The time is now to confront these inhuman a**holes and end this now.”

Let. Them. F*cking. Die.” For relish, the author added, “And smile a bit when you do. For you have done the universe a great service. Ashes to ashes. Dust to bigots.”

You may wonder how these people end up in Academia, but the truth is, the progressive leftists who run universities love violent, extreme leftists. Bill Ayers ended up with a plush job at the University of Illinois. In their minds, they are all little Che Guevara’s fighting for the noble cause of global socialism.

As for Professor Williams, he wants you to know that… he’s actually the victim.

“The black community is beside itself all over the country with the constant killing. It doesn’t matter what we do, we still be killed, we still go to jail. Just being black and living is a crime. That’s what seems to be the problem.”

He says the article in Medium covered “broader issues” in addition to calling for the violent deaths of white people. This is true, because the main thrust of the article is that blacks, LGBT’s, and others should be indifferent to any suffering or death suffered by white people, should never be civil or decent to white people in any way. (They’re way ahead of you on that at Evergreen State, maybe you should see if they have any openings.) The article’s “enlightened” view is that you only owe civility and decency to people who share your racial, cultural, or sexual identity. Morality isn’t individual, it’s collective.

Reading the comments to that Medium article, by the way, is pretty indicative of where the Social Justice Left is these days.

Steve Scalise update

Per The Hill this morning, he has been upgraded from Serious to Fair condition.

I didn’t see this coming: Bono gives Scalise a shout-out. Meaning something positive.

“You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono says on-stage in the video. “We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up, as love holds us all up.”

…U2 performed Tuesday night in Hyattsville, Maryland, at FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins. FedExField is located about 19 miles northeast of Alexandria.

But they’re still stuck on a motive for the shooting. ABC’s article is totally silent on it. The Hill’s article touches on it in a way that disguises the truth:

The FBI said Wednesday that the shooter, who died shortly after sustaining injuries in a confrontation with police, worked alone and that the incident had “no nexus to terrorism.”

The agency also confirmed Hodgkinson had a paper list containing six lawmakers’ names, although they said they would not classify it as a “hit list.”

So, the FBI is politically correct? Yikes! Reminder:

  • The “six names” were a hit list.
  • They were all GOP – and specifically, the (rare) anti-Establishment, pro-liberty type of GOP known as the House Freedom Caucus.
  • The failed murderer, James T. Hodgkinson, was a “Bernie bro” who wanted to kill them for political reasons and terrorize conservatives.

From the comments: James reminds us that Bono has kinda-sorta been getting sensible for awhile. Nice to see!

The First Draft of a Coup d’Etat

Posted by V the K at 8:11 am - June 20, 2017.
Filed under: Violence on the Left

It is a more than a little bit far-fetched, but a writer at the American Spectator envisions a scenario where the attempted mass-murder of Republicans by a Democrat activist last week could have set the stage for a coup d’état. The short version is, had all the Republicans who were supposed to have been at the baseball field been there, and had he killed all of them, he could have wiped out the Republican majority in the House and Senate; potentially putting Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in charge. They would, of course, promptly impeach President Trump.

Like I said, it’s a far-fetched scenario, but it isn’t implausible that the thought of killing Republicans to help Democrats win back the house and senate was what motivated the Democrat Activist shooter. The would-be mass murderer was encouraged by the left’s violent rhetoric, but he acted alone and was a terrible shot. (Probably believed all the Democrat propaganda that “assault weapons” kill anyone they are fired at.) However, a larger force of Democrat activists working together might have been able to kill enough Republicans to tip the balance in Congress. I remember, after the attack, one Progressive Leftist lamenting that violent resistance needed to be better organized.

What do you think “By Any Means Necessary” means, anyway? Bake Sales? According to one Democrat strategist, #HuntRepublicans. Mr. Hodgkinson was just a little ahead of the curve.

On a related note, a Democratic Socialist group at the University of Georgia has called for Republicans to be beheaded Kathy-Griffin style.  They are claiming it was an artistic joke that was too subtle for conservatives to get.

Climate of Hate – roundup

Much of this is from Breitbart; they do a great job of covering it. But I added a few other things.

For dessert:

How many New Yorkers salivate over Trump assassination? This many

Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec disrupt a performance of that Julius Caesar we’ve been talking about:

YouTube Preview Image

It’s inspiring – Jack gets out the words “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!” – but what struck me was, the packed house. Does Shakespeare in the Park draw that kind of crowd, normally?

Laura was arrested; you can help her defense fund at freelaura.com (scroll down).

She discusses it all at length with Stefan Molyneux. After seeing it in person, she agrees with his suggestion that the staging is intentional, graphic, bloody “assassination-orgy porn” recalling ISIS tactics. (So much for any comparisons to that 2012 production in which an Obama-like Julius Caesar was handled with dignity.)

That didn’t take long

You know the Left feels defensive about that Bernie supporter, Hodgkinson, who shot at Republicans. You know because the Left handles insecurity by throwing wild accusations at others, in order to deflect the discredit that the Left has earned.

  • The New York Times has revived the Gabby Giffords blood libel against Sarah Palin.

    Palin never incited Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords or anyone, in 2011. And Loughner was, if anything, somewhat of a leftist; he counted the Communist Manifesto among his favorite books.

    But NYT has, once again (as they did at the time), cited a non-existent “link” between Loughner’s actions and some obscure political actions of Palin’s in 2011. Palin is considering libel action against NYT.

  • Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi calls her GOP colleagues “sanctimonius” over the recent shooting.

    Most of us have heard that one, before. When an insecure leftie knows that she’s in the wrong and you’re in the right, she will feel/assume that you’re looking down on her. We would also accept “You’re so self-righteous”, “uptight”, “judgmental” as typical plays.

SCALISE UPDATE: He remains in critical condition.

I came across this clip of him today, in a recent public service ad against human trafficking. He seems like a nice enough guy.

I couldn’t quickly find which House bills he’s talking about (or what they would do about human trafficking), unless it’s this batch that was passed in January.

Last Saturday, Huffington Post Called for the Execution of Republicans

Posted by V the K at 11:27 am - June 15, 2017.
Filed under: Violence on the Left

The article has apparently been memory-holed, but less than a week ago, the left-wing Huffington Post called for the trial and execution of Donald Trump and a number of other Republicans.

The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller.

Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.

Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for the president, but also for “everyone assisting in his agenda,” including Republican Reps. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and White House strategist Steve Bannon. Fuller claims that “all must face justice” by being tried, convicted and ultimately executed for treason.

Maybe he will just claim it was “art” or a joke that was too funny for conservatives to get. Those are the usual excuses.

BTW, according to the New York Times, the Attempted Mass Murder of Republicans in Alexandria was Sarah Palin’s fault, or something like that. You know, like the Orlando Pulse Massacre was Mike Pence’s fault. It’s amazing how Republicans somehow have gotten extremely good at getting Democrats to murder people.

Unless the Democrat Left Stops Promoting Hate, There Will Be More Violence

In the aftermath of yesterday’s attempted mass murder of Republican congressmen (which was stopped only by Steve Scalise’s security detail and the would-be assassin’s sub-par shooting skills), the knee-jerk reactions from the Democrat left included “they deserved it because they voted against Obamacare” and “they deserved it for being against gun control” and “they deserved it for being racist.”

And this lovely Posh Being weighed in again.

More threats followed.

After the attack, the office of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received an email reading “One down, 216 to go”. Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Va.) needed security after receiving threats reading, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife”. Other threats described graphic atrocities against his daughters and even his dog.

Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ.) went to the FBI after phone messages warning, “Martha our sights are set on you, right between your **** eyes” and “Can’t wait to **** pull the trigger.”

Democrats have used hate to fuel their political fortunes for quite a long time. From Dan Savage’s “I wish all Republicans would drop dead” to Hillary Clinton’s proud statement that “Republicans are my enemies,” to a Seattle City Councilwoman proclaiming “I don’t have any Republican friends” (she was cheered and applauded), the Democrat Left has promoted a climate of hate against Republicans. “Republicans are racist. Republicans are homophobic. Republicans hate poor people and want them to die.” Hate is what makes rich leftists write checks to the DNC. Hate is what drives the Democrat base to the polls. Hate has become the tool Democrats are most familiar and comfortable with using.

I don’t think they can stop. I don’t think Democrats know of any way, other than promoting hate against Republicans, to win elections. And as long as hate is acceptable, there will be violence.

I fear that the attempted mass murder of Republicans in Alexandria was not the apex of the left’s campaign of violent resistance against Republicans, but a harbinger of more violence to follow.

James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, IL: A loser who died in vain

Some criminals’ names are worth remembering, as pathetic examples of futility. Such an individual is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, IL.

As V noted Wednesday, he opened fire on Republican representatives from Congress who were practicing to play baseball for charity, and he critically wounded one of them, Rep. Steve Scalise (R – LA).

I don’t know if Hodgkinson was mentally ill? I do know the media reports that he was a Republican-hating and Trump-hating supporter of the Democrat-socialist, Bernie Sanders. (To the Controlled Media’s credit, they have been presenting this fact; not hiding it.)

I don’t know what Hodgkinson’s life was like; if he accomplished much or had kids or did charity or had overcome abuse or handicaps? I don’t know his life, but I do know that his death was malicious (on his part), pointless and stupid.

He gave his life to injure others, express his hatred and injure America. And he failed. He didn’t make a single kill. (He would still be futile and one of life’s losers, if he had; the point is that, even on his own evil terms, he still failed.) A likely proponent of gun control, he made himself into a cautionary tale in favor of guns; specifically, their ability to stop would-be mass-murderers like Hodgkinson quickly – when good people are around, who have them.

I only hope that, in his last moments of consciousness as he died from the bullets that rained back upon him, Hodgkinson realized his error and had a second or two of repentance. If he did, God in His mercy and power will still be able to make something good of Hodgkinson’s soul.

UPDATE: Hannity notes that Bernie is not to blame for this. He’s right. Except we have to put a qualifier on it.

While Bernie is NOT responsible for every act of his supporters – just as Trump isn’t – it can’t be denied that the Left has been fomenting a Climate of Hate. It has many elements, including falsehoods and smears that Bernie has helped to spread.

Republican Whip and Capitol Police Shot at Baseball Practice

What we know is that Republican Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot by an assailant during a baseball practice in suburban Virginia.  Everything else is speculation for now.

This post will be updated as the story develops.

As might as well cover this story today. Since the shooter is a member of ‘The Resistance,’ the press will forget about it by tomorrow afternoon.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen…

To follow up on that Shakespeare in the Park thing where President Trump is Julius Caesar and they assassinate him:

Caesar Flickerman, speaking in his alter ego of Fareed Zakaria at CNN, said “If you’re in NYC, go see Julius Caesar, free in Central Park, brilliantly interpreted for Trump era. A masterpiece”. (Yes, Zakaria tweeted that.)

Whereas Delta said “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values.” BofA said “The Public Theater chose to present Julius Caesar in a way that was intended to provoke and offend. Had this intention been made known to us, we would have decided not to sponsor it.”

The irony, of course, is that the staging only creates sympathy for Trump. Rightly or wrongly, history ranks Caesar as one of its Great Men. The pack of Senators stabbing him look like cowards. The general bloodiness of the staging reminds people how sick and tasteless America’s “progressives” are.

UPDATE – The Left’s revenge-shakedown begins: C-list celebrities want to boycott Delta, BofA. Because they stopped paying out for the Trump-assassinating Public Theater.

Antifa is pro-Islam, anti-Constitution, anti-gay

Now we know for sure.

Protesters campaigning against Sharia Law were met with a number of counter-demonstrations on Saturday…

Sharia is the law of Islam…The rules of sharia come from Quranic commandments and the hadiths…Sharia significantly restricts the freedom of women and allows for extreme punishments for violations such as adultery, blasphemy, and apostasy. [ed: and homosexuality] Sharia is the basis of laws in Islamic countries, both Sunni and Shia.

A press release from the ACT! for America website reads: “This is a march against Sharia law and for human rights…”

However, many marches were disrupted by counter-demonstrators, who accused participants of “Islamaphobia”…

The article makes clear that the counter-demonstrators were lefties in masks, many associated with Antifa. One threw urine on Lauren Southern (of The Rebel Media).

Let’s summarize.

  1. Sharia is a legal system. Like any legal system, it must be supreme within a given territory or it doesn’t work. In the U.S. context, Sharia’s advocates basically want it to replace U.S. law.
  2. If you march (demonstrate) in favor of U.S. law over Sharia, Antifa protestors are going to physically attack you and call you “Islamophobic”.

It follows that Antifa protestors favor Sharia and want it to replace U.S. law. Which of course is based on the Constitution; which Antifa therefore must also oppose.

If it isn’t so, it’s up to Antifa to clarify it – by denouncing Sharia. In the meantime: Gays, women, and patriotic Americans everywhere ought to find it alarming.

Violence on the Left Is OK If It’s Artistic

A theatre company in New York City (of course) is staging a re-imagining of Julius Caesar in which President Donald Trump is assassinated by a gang of senators.

This version of Shakespeare’s tragedy features a Caesar who bears a striking resemblance to President Donald Trump, complete with his trademark orange hair, business suit, and long red (or blue) necktie. True to the original play, the rash populist Caesar ends up being assassinated on the Senate floor by a group of conspirators — including his friends Cassius and Brutus — saving the Republic from his dangerous reign.

They didn’t even attempt to be subtle with the imagery, according to one woman who was able to see a sneak preview of the performance. During the murder scene when the Trumpian Ceasar is stabbed to death, “an American flag hovers overhead,” according to the woman, while “blood was spewing everywhere out of his body.”

IIRC, in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, his assassins turned out to be the bad guys. Am I remembering that right?

Anyway, this is supposedly OK but what Kathy Griffin did was wrong but what Snoop Dogg did was OK. Because reasons.

You can advocate the assassination of Donald Trump, just not by beheading. I guess because that would be cultural appropriation, or something.

I’ll concede to you that “it’s just a play, so don’t get your panties in a wad {BTW, I don’t wear panties and nothing I wear is in a wad}” if you can answer for me one simple question: Where in America was a depiction of the assassination of Barack Obama considered socially and artistically acceptable in the period 2008-2017?

I’m just trying to figure out what the rules are for these things. I get that it’s OK to advocate murdering the president if he’s a Republican, but not if he’s a Democrat. But apparently there are some subtleties with regard to the means of assassination that I don’t understand.

ILC: Can we get a category for ‘Violence on the Left?’ in the pull-down menu? Thanks.
