It’s Time To Call Out The Left’s Violent Hyperbole

They lost the elections – every one. They are angry about that and their calls for violence may be all they have left. But calling for violence is wrong – because some people will use the urging as an excuse to become violent. Some have a desire to hurt and kill. Laws have been able for some time to keep those urges in check. But now political and social leaders are telling them that they can – and should – act out the violence that is in their hearts. Here are a few examples:

People with some sense are responding. This one is very good:

But this kind of violent talk is everywhere.

Here is a writer for Bill Nye:

Calling for violence against people with whom you disagree is wrong and dangerous. Listen to the language in this opinion article at the Washington Pos:

“The terrifying and terrible prospect of Justice Kennedy retiring”

Fear and loathing are the products and the source of this kind of talk. It is incivil and it incites the crazies.

No Jews Allowed In Chicago Gay Pride Parade

“GAY PRIDE MARCHERS WITH JEWISH FLAGS TOLD TO LEAVE CHICAGO PARADE”

Sanctuary for all – except Jews

Jewish people celebrating LGBT Pride in Chicago were told not to display Star of David flags because other people found them ‘offensive.’

The Jewish Star of David flag was banned from the city’s annual Dyke March celebrations, and several people carrying the flag were removed form the march because their presence “made people feel unsafe,” LGBT paper Windy City Times reported.

One of the offenders

The Dyke March is described by organisers as being a “more inclusive, more social justice-oriented” march than the city’s main Pride parade.

Now, NBC News pundit and MSNBC host Christopher Hayes has announced there’s a strong chance Justice Antony Kennedy will retire on Monday. A liberal, Hayes believes the moves is the end of Roe v. Wade, the disasterous pro-abortion Supreme Court Case:

That would be good news if true.

He May Not See Well But There’s Nothing Wrong With His Brain

“Stevie Wonder: ‘Can’t Claim Black Lives Matter, When You’re KILLING Each Other’”

Mr. Wonder

While at a North Minneapolis Conference on Peace, musician Stevie Wonder addressed black-on-black violence in a way that is sure to trigger pasty liberals suffering from white guilt.

“It is in your hands to do it,” he said. “It is in your hands to stop all the killing and all the shooting wherever you might be. Because you cannot say, ‘Black lives matter,’ and then kill yourselves.”

So much wisdom in such a short comment. He will be crucified for it, though. It doesn’t fit the narrative. It doesn’t support anarchy or the socialists and communists that are behind the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

The Progressive Murder Fantasy Is Everywhere

“University of Georgia Socialist Group Under Police Investigation After Calling for Beheading Republicans”

A student group at the University of Georgia is facing a police investigation after saying on Twitter that Republicans should be “guillotined.”

Responding to a story about a professor at the Art Institute of Washington who allegedly claimed that House Republicans should be “lined up and shot,” the Young Democratic Socialists at the University of Georgia reportedly tweeted that the Republican members of the House should instead be “guillotined.”

Called on it, the head of the group says it was all a joke. He should. This kind of ‘Jest’ will catch the attention of the Secret Service.

David Littmann, the founder of the Young Democratic Socialists chapter at the University of Georgia who graduated in 2016, claimed that the tweet was made in jest.”

CBS’s Scott Pelley, Others Blame Republicans For Alexandria Attack

The perpetrator in the shooting at the baseball practice was a hard-left Bernie Sanders supporter who clearly wanted to kill Republicans. A favorite tactic of those on the left is to stir up violence and then blame it on the right. They see nothing wrong with this kind of lying. Anything, no matter how vile, may be used against their enemies.

Pelley cherry picks his examples of violence, leaving out the vastly more numerous attacks by leftists.

“Scott Pelley: D.C. Attack on Congressmen Was ‘to Some Degree Self-Inflicted'”

It’s clear from Pelley’s subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are “Yes.” It’s equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.”

Also, on CNN, the former Editor of the New York Times, Jill Abramson says the violence we are seeing is the product of Republican rage:

“Former NYT Editor: Republican “Rage Machine” Responsible For Current Political Climate”

Abramson put the blame on Republicans for the divisive political climate and accused them of “benefiting from a kind of rage machine that operates in this country.”

There is something twisted in Abramson’s visage.

James Hodgkinson Kicks Off Democrat ‘Resistance Summer’ With A Series Of Bangs

‘Resistance Summer’ sounds like fightin’ words. It was meant to. The Democratic National Committee has called for what they call a ‘Resistance Summer’ beginning in June. Hodgkinson took the call literally.

“Dems launch ‘Resistance Summer'”

Foul-mouthed leader of the DNC, Tom Perez

There has been an explosion of activism and energy after the election of Donald Trump, and we need to turn this moment into a movement,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.

“As the Democratic Party, it is our role to support this activism and energy, and convert it into electoral wins up-and-down the ballot by making sure state parties have the tools and resources they need to succeed.”

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chairman of the DNC, joined Perez in the statement, calling the summer action “the starting point” for the party’s efforts to organize the resistance movement into a larger political force.”

The Washington Examiner notes how the left has gone violent – not just in the United States.

“The violent political Left”

Violence is increasingly visible or threatened in the attacks by ski-masked, hammer-armed “antifas” — people employing fascists-style violence on those who disagree — on campuses from Berkeley to New England and in the streets of “cool cities” like Portland. Contrary to mainstream media expectations, the violence and threats come almost entirely from the political Left, not the Right.

[…]

And there have been multiple violent threats and some actual violence against Republican House members. Virginia’s Tom Garrett canceled town halls in response to a message that “we’re going to kill your wife.” The message to Upstate New York’s Claudia Tenney was, “One down, 216 to go.”

A Tucson school official was arrested for making threats that Arizona’s Martha McSally’s “days were numbered.” A woman was charged with felony reckless endangerment for trying to drive Tennessee’s David Kustoff’s car off the road.”

A ‘Second Civil War’?

The first skirmishes of a second American civil war have begun.

No, this is not a metaphorical analogy to that bloody conflict that killed approximately 620,000 Americans. It is an objective statement of the reality in America.”

So, What Do You Think? Is David Right?

This was written by David Hines and published in Jacobite. It probably does a pretty good job of assuring those who carry bike locks that they will prevail:

“POLITICAL VIOLENCE IS A GAME THE RIGHT CAN’T WIN”

If there’s one thing righties believe, it’s that they could beat lefties in a fight.

You see this attitude reflected over and over again, to the point that it’s probably something engrained in the right-wing psyche. Pajama Boy vs. tactical deathbeast? Pffft. No contest. Look, righties have the guns, righties have police and they have the military. If one day the balloon ever goes up, righties will just organize behind a leadership of their veterans, coordinate with the active service, give all the lefties free helicopter rides, and live happily ever after. Right?

That’s pretty much what the Confederacy thought about the Yankees, and it didn’t exactly work out well for them.”

And then there’s the obligatory Quote From A Commie:

The recent Battles of Berkeley have shown that right-wing defense groups can acquit themselves admirably in street-fights, but hard experience has taught Lefties that an all-one-tactic mentality is a good way to give your opponents time to figure out how to counter you. If righties going to build things, they need to look at how the lefties are doing it, because they’ve been working on it for forty years. To paraphrase Trotsky, you may not be interested in politics, but politics are interested in you — and you can learn a lot from the people who’ve been working them to their advantage.”

General Mattis Uses The ‘Magic Words’

While we have been distracted by the shootings in Virginia the world goes on. General James Mattis put the threat of war with North Korea into focus when he spoke at Singapore and called North Korea a ‘Clear And Present Danger’.

Clear and present danger was a doctrine adopted by the Supreme Court of the United States to determine under what circumstances limits can be placed on First Amendment freedoms of speech, press, or assembly.”

What Is The Difference Between Socialism And Democratic Socialism?

Nothing. It’s a sophistry designed by supporters of Bernie Sanders to allow them to lie to and through the media to other Americans. It’s designed to make everyone think that Sanders and his supporters do not support the violence against others that is the hallmark of Socialism.

As we see today Socialism is a mental disorder. A man from Illinois who believed in Socialism and its natural violence traveled a thousand miles to attempt to kill people who are not Socialists. He was a great fan of Democratic Socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

I blame many on the left for creating the monster who perpetrated this attack. I blame Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. Obama especially, because he fostered the divide between Americans. He did this between whites and people of color. He did it between the left and the right. When leftists rioted, damaged property, and hurt people he sent people from his Justice Department to train the rioters. I blame those who have called for violence; people like Louis Farrakhan, leaders of the New Black Panthers, University teachers and administration who taught our young people to hate, to be angry, and to act out violently. I blame those who gave in to the childish demands of studens and further emboldened them.

I blame many, many in media who have quoted the violent, race-charged rhetoric of the far left, silenced people who thought otherwise, highlighted regular Americans who acted in self defense, calling the murderers, and refused to cover people from the left who acted violently. I blame apologists who refuse to see violence for what it is and who imagine violence where there is none.

Leftists Always Embrace Violence

This time, at Evergreen College, they have advanced to the use of baseball bats.

“Bat-Wielding Mob of Left-Wing Students Are ‘Community Policing’ Evergreen College”

On Sunday, an official at Evergreen sent a letter (obtained by College Fix) to students, urging them not to carry bats while they roam the campus.”

Yeah, I’m sure that will work. The kids who have taken up arms want to bash the heads of people they either don’y like or they don’t want to hear. This will continue to escalate until people are dead. That is what history shows us happens every time there is a leftist revolution.

What’s Up With The University Of Iowa?

First story:

“Prof: ‘white marble’ in artwork contributes to white supremacy”

Prof. Sarah Bond

A University of Iowa professor recently argued that appreciation of “white marble” used in classical artwork contributes to “white supremacist ideas today.”

Professor Sarah Bond demonstrates in an article published in Hyperallergic that “many of the statues, reliefs, and sarcophagi created in the ancient Western world were in fact painted,” meaning the “white marble” often seen in such pieces of art were intended to be colored.”

From Campus Reform

Second story:

They have this:“Pediatric Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Clinic”

Pediatric? Doesn’t that mean young children are involved?

University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital is home to Iowa’s only pediatric lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LBGTQ) clinic. This specialized clinic is staffed by a pediatric endocrinologist – a doctor who works with the system that produces hormones – as well as a family medicine doctor.”

A Great Reason To Own A Gun And Know How To Use It

“Oklahoma Man Uses A Gun To Prevent ‘One Of The Worst Things Imaginable’”

ADA, Okla. – An Ada man was shot and killed by a neighbor Friday after he tried drowning twin babies.

“It’s awful because I’ve held the babies and, like, I’ve played with them and I just gave them clothes yesterday,” said neighbor Summer Pierce.

Officials say Leland Foster was allegedly threatening the mother of the children with a knife during the ordeal.

A 12-year-old girl who was in the home ran to a neighbor’s house for help.

The neighbor, Cash Freeman, rushed back over to the home to find Foster trying to drown the 3-month-old twins, a boy and a girl, in the bathtub.

He then shot Foster twice in the back with a gun.”

London Is Importing Men With Testosterone

There are lots of pictures of Londoners, including police, running away from the attack at London Bridge. In fact the Metropolitan police are advising people to ‘Run, Hide, and Tell’.

One man decided to try to do something instead:

“A Romanian baker smashed a London Bridge terrorist over the head with a bread crate”

A Romanian baker caught up in the London Bridge attack spoke of smashing one of the terrorists over the head with a crate of bread to bring him down and end the carnage.

Florin Morariu works at the Bread Ahead bakery in Borough Market and was there at the moment of the attack on Saturday, 3 June. Morariu told Associated Press that he looked out of the window to see people suddenly fleeing in terror.”

Canadians Are Objecting To Spending Taxpayer Money On A Giant Rubber Duck

“‘What the duck?!’: Cost of giant rubber duck that’s coming to Brockville under fire”

A giant rubber duck coming to Brockville this summer as part of the Ontario government’s celebrations of Canada’s 150th anniversary has taxpayers taking a bath, says a provincial politician.

Ontario PC MPP Vic Fedeli said the $200,000 duck tour – more than half of it covered by Ontario – is a sure sign of a government with “messed up” priorities.

“I cannot imagine what the rubber duck’s connection is to the 150th,” Fedeli said. “They’re laying off frontline health-care workers right across Ontario … They can’t find money for alternative level of care beds, but they can find $200,000 for some kind of a duck promo?”

Not All College Administrators Are Weenies

A few, like those at Ohio State, understand that their job is to prepare students for the real world. Unlike those at Evergreen State, who have given in to student demands, those at OSU are bringing reality into the mix.

These young people will be better for the dose of reality they have received.

“Ohio State Swiftly Ends Students’ ‘Occupation’ With Promises Of Arrest, Expulsion”

Students at Ohio State University who attempted to occupy the area outside of president Michael V. Drake’s office late Wednesday night experienced a surprise — and a taste of the cruel, real world — when a senior administrator coolly advised them that they would be arrested and expelled if they didn’t retreat from their “occupied space.”

The protest began — as such protests often do these days — with a set of demands and the promise to remain firmly ensconced at Bricker Hall, Ohio State’s main administration building, until school officials capitulated to the demands.”

“Taxpayer Dollars Up, Non-Abortion Services Down at Planned Parenthood”

More than half a billion of our dollars went to fund abortion services at Planned Parenthood.

“Taxpayers gave nation’s largest abortion provider $554 million in 2015-2016”

Planned Parenthood continues to increase its haul of taxpayer dollars despite its chain of clinics experiencing steep declines in patients and non-abortion services while abortions remained stable.

Cancer screenings have plummeted by 50 percent over the past five years, according to Planned Parenthood’s 2015-2016 report. The 665,234 services performed at its 650 clinics represented a 50 percent drop from 1.3 million recorded in 2011-2012.”
