In movies, novels, music, and art, progressives murder their enemies, including presidents, in myriad ways.
We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.
We have gone from Sam Peckinpah’s realistic portrayal of violent death to a gory ritual of metal ripping flesh, as if it is some sort of macabre ballet. Rap music has institutionalized violence against women and the police — to the tune of billions in profits, largely as a way for suburban kids to find vicarious street authenticity. And this idea of metaphorically cutting, bleeding, or shooting those whom you don’t like without real consequences has seeped into the national political dialogue.
If the Axis had won, would we have seen rampaging mobs? But wait, we have those now, except we call them ‘protesters’. Politically they combine the Tweedledum of Hitlerian thuggery with the Tweedledee of Marxist groupthink and, to our so-called leaders’ shame, our publicly funded and thoroughly colonised institutions urge them on
Bette Midler didn’t like Senator Paul’s perspective on the budget. Her mean tweet received nearly 4,000 RT’s and 23,000 “likes” referencing a violent act by her fellow Democrat against Senator Rand Paul.
Rand Paul was blind tackled by his neighbor. He didn’t hear him because he was wearing protective headgear while mowing the lawn. Senator Paul ended up with broken ribs, a punctured lung, and then pneumonia that resulted in hospitalization. Why? No one is talking about it now, but it’s implied that his neighbor didn’t like his politics. Senator Paul said that the guy “Just lost it.”
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Text messages recently released between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress FBI attorney Lisa Page — both of whom are anti-Trump — reveal them saying that they “hate” pro-lifers and wanted to find an excuse to cancel the 2016 March for Life in Washington, D.C.
In what was intended to be a private message, Page told Strzok that “I truly hate these people,” referring to pro-lifers attending the January 22, 2016, March for Life in the nation’s Capitol. Strzok then replied that that the authorities should lie about a “snow emergency” to “cancel the permit” and stop the march.
Quite a couple. The FBI image was a myth all along or they really lowered their standards.
Today one of the popular themes of political children’s books is that as soon as you’re born you’re a victim because of your sex or skin color.
Despite women’s unemployment at an all-time low, a booming economy, and women like Nikki Haley, Linda McMahon, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Sanders, and others taking lead roles in the presidential administration, some women and organizations base their livelihood on telling other women and girls that they are victims. Even though I parodied their ridiculous actions like promoting feminism and social justice with $700 Dior T-shirts, there is one area they’ve found mainstream success: Children’s books.
A group of anti-fascists have rallied in Central London to protest against the rise of alt-right group Generation Identity (GI), a group made up of “posh school boys” opposing white supremacy to liberalist ideas.
Students from the School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS) gathered outside the university to protest against GI’s “increase in activity in the UK in general, but specifically within university campuses.”
Last weekend I, along with many around the world, commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day. As editor of the country’s leading Jewish newspaper, The Jewish Chronicle, it is a memorial of particular significance.
Through editing the newspaper, I am confronted daily with the legacy of that unique evil, including the suppression of debate, the distortion of truth and even the burning of books at the heart of that terrible chapter in our history.
I know, too, that the Third Reich’s totalitarian impulse – that only one type of question and one type of answer are legitimate, and all else must be extinguished – is far from unique because repressive regimes the world over continue to ban freedom of enquiry and freedom of expression.
Something very odd and potentially self-defeating is happening to liberalism in the Trump era.
Confronted by the rise of a harder right, the center-left has responded by declaring the intellectual and political equivalent of a public health emergency. Policy positions adopted by their opponents, which liberals of the past would have considered wrong but perfectly legitimate, are now deemed morally unacceptable threats to our form of government — a hazard to the soul of American democracy akin to the danger that an outbreak of a deadly plague would pose to individual American bodies.
Replace “white men” with the government certified victim group of your choosing and see what happens in Jolly Old England.
A placard targeting “old white men” which was held up by a woman at a march in London has been reported as a hate crime by a member of UKIP.
Angered UKIP Assembly group leader Peter Whittle shared the image on Twitter. The picture shows a woman with pink hair sitting on a man’s shoulders at a protest march in the British capital, holding up a sign which reads: “No country for old white men.”
Whittle said on Twitter: “I wish to report this placard, photographed at the Women’s March in Whitehall London on January 21st, as a possible hate crime @MetCC.”
Protesters defaced a Winston Churchill-themed cafe in London amid claims the establishment “celebrates British imperialism,” ruthlessly perpetuated by one of the most revered prime ministers in British history.
The Blighty cafe in Finsbury Park – where customers can drink out of Churchill-adorned mugs and pose beside a replica of the wartime leader – has been repeatedly vandalized by anti-imperialist protesters.
Police charged a protester who allegedly attacked a Trump supporter after an event at a Manhattan nightclub Saturday night that was headlined by ultra right-winger Mike Cernovich.
Violence erupted around 10:30 p.m. when anti-Trump protesters, including 30-year-old David Campbell, clashed with alt-right supporters as they were leaving A Night For Freedom, a ticketed event held at a nightclub on West 50th Street and 12th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen.
About 80 protesters gathered outside as event-goers spilled out of the venue.
Police said Campbell spotted and followed the 56-year-old victim who had left the event. Once they were about a block away, Campbell allegedly choked and punched the man.
