Good morning, kids. Fittingly, it’s the Ides of March, so let’s play “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other,” shall we? Okay.
1 – “Geronimo!”
2 – “Oorah!”
3 – “Huzzah!”
3 – “Banzai!”
5 – “We made our point and Donald Trump has asked for everybody to go home. So what are we going to do? We are going to obey our president.”
What the Democrats had planned on J6 — January 6, 2021, the day the votes were made official at the Capitol, never happened.
Just consider the crackdown that did occur subsequent to J6. Consider then what would have happened had there in fact been an Antifa/Democrat style riot at the Capitol.
They would have come down on everything on the “Right. . . ”
. . . But, instead, we got Jacob Chansley. The “QAnon Shaman.”
On J6, Chansley ambled down the corridors, got a police-conducted tour, then said a prayer and howled. Who knows his politics, or cares?
What neither Chansley, nor hundreds of others who were there that day did, was riot.
They did not come brandishing firearms. (Who goes to insurrect without guns? This is America about which we are talking.)
They set no fires. This is worth repeating. They set no fires. (Whereas Antifa set fire to the “Church of Presidents” in a real riot, albeit memory-holed, in front of the White House.) . . .
. . . Agents provocateur, of whom there were beaucoup. An “agent provocateur” is a person working for the government who tries to provoke someone into committing a crime.
Frankly, it’s astonishing that they didn’t take the bait. There were half a million outside. They could have burned the place down.
Had they, we all would have been crushed.
And for his bloody battle cry and goofy attire, Jacob Chansley got 41 months in a federal prison. Of course, the “bloody battle cry” as well as video footage of him being personally and calmly escorted around the Capitol by Capitol cops as if on a VIP tour is exculpatory evidence that was withheld from his attorneys. I assume because of “national security” reasons, of course.
Protestors carrying banners that read, “Queers Bash Back,” and, “Bash Fash,” were seen on video smashing glass windows while police officers tried to fend them off. Additional footage showed police outside taking down masked protesters who appeared to be carrying spray paint cans.
A UC Davis campus police spokesperson told Breitbart News that “two people were arrested after spray painting the outside of the building.”
“I’m not sure what the exact charges are, but that’s what they were doing,” the spokesperson said.
The police spokesperson added that he did not have information on the identities of the individuals who were arrested and that, so far, no arrests have been made in connection to the smashed glass windows on the university’s campus doors.The left-wing and LGBTQ activists were also seen carrying banners that read, “Protect Trans Kids,” and, “Fascists Off Campus.”
The violence by protesters arrived on the heels of UC Davis chancellor Gary S. May releasing a video in which he referred to Kirk as a “proponent of hate” and falsely claimed the Turning Point USA founder has “advocated for violence against transgender individuals.”
May also proclaimed that while the university “can’t control how these groups [TPUSA] operate,” the campus community can “work together to neutralize and negate their influence.”
UC Davis. A place that makes Patrice Lumumba University look like Hillsdale College in comparison. Forgetting for a moment that considering who and what controls the state university system, law enforcement and indeed the entirety of the state itself, is there any doubt whoever the cops nabbed will be let off with a wrist-slap if not an apology? Worse, this Gary May bastard incited the violence and while I would not be surprised if he helped organize it, he nevertheless approves of it. Because, pace Ace, “Our speech is violence, and their violence is speech.”
On the latest episode of our podcast, which will post a bit later this morning, friend and friend of the blog Michael Walsh discussed his latest essay, wherein he, and we, attempt to tackle the subject of the rock and hard place we find ourselves in:
In the movie The Untouchables, written by David Mamet and directed by Brian De Palma, a streetwise Irish cop named Malone tries to educate a starry-eyed fed named Eliot Ness in the ways of Chicago justice when up against an implacable, deadly opponent like Al Capone. The scene has become justly famous for this line: “He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. THAT’S the Chicago way! And that’s how you get Capone.”
But for our purposes here, what even more important is the exchange between Sean Connery and Kevin Costner that immediately precedes it:
Ness: I want to get Capone! I don’t know how to get him.
Malone: [talking privately in a church] You said you wanted to know how to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see what I’m saying, what are you prepared to do?
Ness: Everything within the law.
Malone: And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the ball on these people Mr. Ness you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they won’t give up the fight, until one of you is dead.
Well, that’s the question, isn’t it? In a battle between good and evil, with the law having gone over to the side of evil—as it had in the gangland Chicago of the 1920s and ’30s—what are the good guys prepared to do? With the country-as-founded now being shot out from underneath us on a near-daily basis, how do concerned citizens fight back? . . .
. . . politically mobilized Trump supporters didn’t take up arms on Jan. 6, and as for “violence,” the patsy protesters had nothing on the Antifa and Black Lives Matters thugs during the Summer of Floyd of blessed but rapidly fading memory, his work on earth here now done.
If not the system (which as I noted here and here, IS the steal, having now effectively legalized voter fraud), then what? Certainly not the courts. Time after time, suits have been brought in response to this or that enormity, only to have the courts dismiss the plaintiffs as “without standing.” Most egregious of the recent examples was Texas v. Pennsylvania in late 2020, in which Texas and other states sued Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—the states that handed Biden his “win”—for changing their election laws (owing in large part to the Covid hoax) by means other than legislative, in clear violation of the Constitution. . .
. . . Meanwhile, the addlepated but deeply malevolent Joe Biden, who continues his payback war against everyone who wrote him off half a century ago as a malignant idiot, continues to illustrate the truth of “Irish Alzheimer’s,” which is that you only remember the grudges. Wrecking the economy, annihilating longstanding societal norms in the name of “equity”, picking a fight with Russia like a drunk in a bar nearing closing time, shuttling his treasury secretary over to the Ukraine as techbro banks collapse literally overnight, Biden is the most destructive president in American history, even worse than Woodrow Wilson: like Wilson he disbelieves in the Constitution; unlike Wilson, he openly despises his country and his countrymen and acts on it every day.
So what are you prepared to do? The recent midterms, which were supposed to have been a spanking for the Democrats, barely moved the needle. The sudden appearance of Kevin McCarthy’s backbone as speaker of the House has been a pleasant surprise (and thanks to the Freedom Caucus for holding his feet to the fire until they got what they wanted), but the superannuated Senate led by two ambulatory stereotypes, Chuck Schumer and Turtle McChao, is functionally dysfunctional, held periodic hostage by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, and now boasting both a vegetable in John Fetterman and its very own Lady Gaga in Dianne Feinstein. There is much talk of partition, even of civil war.
Yet most of us continue to believe in America; like the movie version of Eliot Ness, we’ve sworn to do “everything within the law” to try and right the ship of state before, like all previous democracies, it sinks beneath the waves of historical reality”
Funny how Walsh uses a phrase straight out of the opening –the very first line in fact — of The Godfather where the undertaker, Amerigo Bonasera does everything right and the country and system that he “believes in” stabbed him in the back. So where does he go?
And where do WE go? As I stated and has been illustrated above, if we attempt to engage in a peaceful protest, we lose because it results in Reichstag Fire 2: Biden’s Enabling Act Boogaloo, and would have had we taken the bait on J6 after the intentional killing of Ashli Babitt and Roseanne Boyalnd, and the physical assaults carried out by cops and Glowies on the peaceful crowd.
But if we do nothing after each and every stolen or sabotaged election, after schools abuse our children, after we are silenced or fired for wrong-think, and on and on and on, we ultimately wind up in the same place. Behind a new iron curtain. In this case, an Ironic Curtain given the circumstances and players involved in the original’s demise.
And yet, here we are talking about Trump alternately coming up with gems like his trade package but then sticking his foot in his mouth with puerile name-calling of his opponents and worse, making the now immutable historic fact of the 2020 stolen election his central campaign pillar of 2024, as well as the attributes and negatives of DeSantis, as well as the ridiculousness of the rest of the pack as it takes shape, as if elections and regular order still is the status quo.
Leftist agitators and their Democrat (ham ‘n) eggers-on notwithstanding, Americans do not really care for politics. They care about being left alone to live their lives. And this has always been relatively easy because despite the economic vicissitudes of the past, we never really had to worry about where our next meal was coming from.
That has now changed, given the past two years of near runaway inflation, the devaluing of our currency, the destruction of our all-important energy sector, the erasure of our borders and the increasingly feral nature of an illegitimate government whose policies are crumbling around them for all to see despite the best efforts of the Democrat-Propaganda Complex.
When you got nothing, you got nothing left to lose. That applies equally to us and our oppressors as both our plans and worlds fall on our heads.
And that day is fast approaching.
