America’s Campus: The Necessity of Violence

If the campus hooligans want violence, will they be on its receiving end?

If you think that the mobbing of Charles Murray at Middlebury College in early March was the final stage of campus bullying, especially after denunciations came from conservatives and liberals alike, you missed the events at Claremont-McKenna College two weeks ago. People who came to hear Heather Mac Donald, who argues that the excessive scrutiny of policemen has led them to back off from their work and thus has increased crime levels, couldn’t enter the building. Protesters screamed at and pushed them, also threatening bystanders and journalists if they got too close. Heckling the speaker wasn’t enough. We saw full-on intimidation of anyone interested in the event.

    But it is totally unfair that some of those Trump supporters hit back!

  • Does George Soros (nee George Schwartz) ever hold public events?

    Jus’ wonderin’ if Soros would mind if a bunch of conservative protestors started showing up at his events in masks, throwing Molotov cocktails, smashing the windows of buildings that he personally owns, beating and threatening his attendees and supporters, etc. I only mention this because it’s apparently legal in the U.S. to engage in this sort of activity since the cops do nothing to stop it, and the FBI refuses to investigate who finances and organizes it, and Judges refuse to hand out any sentences that would deter it. Plus Soros himself supports it, so logically I would assume that it would be completely Kosher to protest Soros himself in a likewise violent manner.

    Or is my logic wrong here somewhere?

    The Democrats have been a major failure at the ballot box the last few years, so that leaves anarchy as the political tool.

      And as long as there are no consequences for those actions, from both Police and university administrations, these tactics will continue. Look at Berkeley and its BAMN mayor on the April 15th Patriots Day event.

    Simple solution to identifying Antifa members.

    Get about 20-30 people to carry these filled with Indelible Ink concealed inside a backpack with a shorter spray nozzle down long sleeves and hose them down from head to toe. They’ll be forced to remove their masks to prevent breathing in the ink.

    They’ll be purple and blue for several weeks at least and they’ll be forced to strip naked to ditch their ink soaked clothing.

      To hell with the ink. Use gasoline, then entertain yourself by tossing road flares at them.

        I’m serious though, it would be effective.

        Indelible ink takes several weeks to come out of human skin.
        you literally can’t effectively wash it off completely with any kind of cleanser that exists.

        Blast them in the face and it’s several weeks of either hiding out in their houses or having to go out in public purple and blue..

      As impressive as the Maruyama looks, and as fun as it would be to see a bunch of purple people walking around the day after a riot, you’re working under the logical premise that someone wants the antifa members identified, presumably law enforcement or university administrators. Problem is, these two don’t actually seem to care who these thugs are and seem quite happy with letting them wreak havoc.

        But that’s the point, if you can’t get the cops to remove the masks under existing laws which make it a crime to conceal your identity during a riot or commission of a crime then you force them to take the masks off themselves.

        Auburn was a one off with cops enforcing no masks or concealment at large organized gatherings laws introduced to combat the Klan

        Taking pictures and sicking 4chan on them will only score a few unmaskings, this will lead to dozens, if not a few hundred being forced to ditch the masks and their clothes entirely to be able to get into any cab,. bus or their own cars to escape.

        The media will be all over it and anyone stained with ink will be known
        tto be in Antifa, social media will be exploding with photos and video of these people.

  • Clausewitz

    These Antifa fools think they are expressing their first amendment rights. Lets look at that 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.

    The fact that most of these clods have never read this amendment explains why they ignore the most important word in the statement, “peaceably”. There is no first amendment right for rioting.
