bionic mosquito: The Fog Slowly Lifts…

An interesting turnabout in antifa coverage and intriguing theory on why the movement exists.

I refer to the events in Berkeley about ten days ago: Trump supporters planned an event; antifa crashed the event and began their chaotic violence. As I felt at the time, the news to me was not so much the news; the news was how the news was covered.

I wrote something on the events the day after, based on a report from the Los Angeles Times. The Times placed the blame on the left and antifa, and not on the right and Trump supporters (aka fascists, Nazis). This was quite surprising to me at the time, considering the completely opposite narrative a couple of weeks earlier after Charlottesville. Read the rest of this entry »

That aroma is called “Setup!”.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said: “There has got to be a movement in this country to bring people together. The hatred and rhetoric that has gone on and has intensified over the last couple months is dividing this great nation.” He denounced “the white supremacists and the Nazis.” However, when asked a question about whether he would include the left-wing, pro-violence antifa in his condemnation, he ignored the question and walked out of the room.

We’re All Racists Now – Oh, The Irony

Posted by M. C. on August 21, 2017

Over the past few days, it has become apparent on social media that defending non-aggression and freedom of speech is now cause for being branded with a Swastika. The self-proclaimed champions of equality and justice are no longer maintaining the illusion that they tolerate opinions other than their own. In fact, they seem to be openly comfortable suppressing those opinions by any means necessary. Their current stance is that anyone that does not pull a ski mask over their heads, pick up a baseball bat and fall in line behind them is racist at best and most likely a Nazi. They have moved past questioning our ideas to issuing personal threats of violence, which in their fanaticism are completely justified.

Those championing free speech are shouted down and physically attacked by liberal progressives. Free speech (That is, not the correct free speech) advocates are now Nazis.

The irony is obvious to anyone who gives it a moments thought. Why don’t we read about the obvious?

The media are busy catering to social justice warriors and snowflakes with an if it bleeds it leads mentality. It has neither the inclination let alone courage to buck the Soros funded bandwagon. The media feeds the bandwagon mules.

Soros, he whose name cannot be spoken by his media. The media is his Gollum.

Gollum

Be seeing you

Fact vs. Fiction

Posted by M. C. on August 17, 2017

Just remember there is only one side to every story.

First, while there were indeed some self-styled neo-Nazis that were present among the rally’s attendees, they were, by all appearances, a tiny minority.  And they constituted a far smaller fraction of the totality of the group than, say, that which on multiple occasions comprised the totality of Black Lives Matter demonstrators that marched through busy city streets shouting such murderous slogans as, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” and “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!” Read the rest of this entry »
