Both Sides Aren’t Violent
June 22, 2017 By Katy Grimes
Free speech is under assault in America. And in California, free speech is being bushwhacked. People are attacked just for having patriotic bumper stickers on their cars. Trump supporters who attend rallies are threatened, assaulted, beat up, and in a weekend attack in Santa Monica, a 28-year old man was knifed nine times! The only people being attacked are Trump supporters. The media lie “both sides do it” is repugnant; both sides are not violent.
The Navy Jack flag flying from my house was set on fire shortly before the November 8th presidential election. We fly it at the behest of our son, a Naval officer, who was deployed to the Middle East at the time. It’s an historical flag. But the dunderheads who set it afire have no idea that the Navy Jack flag is flown from all commissioned naval vessels. Duh.
In my urban Sacramento neighborhood of 6,000 homes, I counted three Trump signs and one Trump flag being displayed during the election. However, it appeared that every other house had HILLARY signs displayed, and every Prius and Subaru wagon displayed I’m With HER bumper stickers next to COEXIST, BOYCOTT ISRAEL, Proud Witch, and Obama 2008.
Nasty Women Get # Done PDX: A group who fancy themselves enlightened feminist resisters
Following the election, that obnoxious, preachy “In Our America” sign popped up all over my neighborhood. The sign is from the “Nasty Women Get # Done PDX” group who fancy themselves enlightened feminist resisters. However, they really are just batty deniers, still whining about losing the election, and ignorant of the Electoral College.
“Nasty Women Get # Done” push ridiculous messages like 7 Reasons Why Patriarchy Is Bad (And Feminism Is Good) For Men , and 4 ways you as a white person can reduce your complicity in white supremacy.
This is life in urban California. It’s hostile, full of angry liberals still in shock that Hillary lost, who see no problem destroying property if it supports their anti-Trump “resist” game plan.
Yet media elites, talking heads and Democrat strategists continue to tell us that “both sides do it.”
Au contraire mon frère. Both sides do not do it. It is this attitude that propelled Trump to win the presidential election. I understood Trump’s populist appeal early on, and embraced it along with middle and rural America, because after the last eight years, and the lily-livered Republican choices for President, the people wanted a fighter because the people are fed up. The people are fed up with the lying media. They are fed up with Democrat and Republican operatives, and with the political establishment, which has gotten rich while ignoring the will of the people.
This election was simple: Trump spoke directly to the people whose concerns were jobs, immigration, and Islamic terrorism. The agenda of the previous eight years ignored these basic issues. This election, Democrats had no playbook and no solutions to these bipartisan problems.
When George W. Bush was running against Al Gore in the 2000 election, there were a good amount of Bush/Cheney lawn signs in my neighborhood—not as many as the Gore/Lieberman signs, but people in my urban neighborhood didn’t hesitate to show support for either political side.
However, that didn’t last. In 2000, I was berated at my local polling station by a few boorish, loudmouthed neighbors for being Republican, thanks to the poll worker who loudly announced (sneered) my Republican Party status. I had my then-11-year old son with me, and that may have been the first time he showed his protective side for mom. He was disgusted at their behavior, and demanded to know why the incident happened. Needless to say, we had an interesting discussion about it.
Today it’s even worse. The liberal left is no longer liberal; they aren’t progressive, they aren’t enlightened, and they are not tolerant—once terms used to describe liberals. They are corrupted, radicalized and make daily use of “the ends justify the means.” They have become incendiary, domestic, subversive malcontents, only happy when anyone right-of-center is cowed into silence. Ordinary decency is dead on the left. And those who deny this look the other way when it is in front of them.
The Democrat Party is Destroying America
The Democrat Party has adopted many communist intentions to destabilize and destroy America, from cultural rot, to demonizing prayer and religion, to socializing and destroying public education, to open contempt for the rule of law.
Following Trump’s victory, Democrats and the media should have done a serious introspection, because his win was not a surprise; they just refused to see the signs, and instead ramped up manipulations to get Hillary into the White House. They ignored the obvious. And if they are incapable of reading the obvious signs in an election, imagine how bad Democrats in the White House again would be
Camille Paglia: Democrat Party has destroyed American journalism
Camille Paglia, the feminist liberal media studies college professor says the Democrat Party has destroyed American journalism, and won’t stop there. “Democrats are doing this in collusion with the media obviously, because they just want to create chaos,” she said. “They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on anything.”
I’ve long said that Democrats always overreach when they are in power. Paglia agrees. Her assessment of media bias in the Trump era leaves little room for optimism. “I am appalled at the behavior of the media,” she declared. “It’s the collapse of journalism.”
Paglia, who voted for Jill Stein last November, is predicting Trump will win re-election in 2020. “I feel like the Democrats have overplayed their hand,” she said.
If elite Democrats and the radical left continue to insist the President doesn’t deserve unbiased news coverage—if they continue down their vulgar pathway claiming Trump committed incest with his daughter—if the left continues to produce vile videos mimicking Trump’s beheading—if they continue sharing their dreams of blowing up the White House—if they continue producing vulgar plays in which the President is stabbed to death Caesarian style—if they continue to assault American patriots and Trump supporters and continue to destroy property, they will surely usher in another four years for Trump in 2020.
Elitist Democrats and the radical left continue to insult Middle Americans
If the elitist media leftists (Democrats with bylines) continue to write articles demanding Trump’s trial and execution—if leftist college professors continue to call for Trump to be hanged, or fantasize about Trump’s murder—they can expect an uprising from the hard working, decent people on the right who are disgusted and fed up with their abhorrent behavior.
And if elitist Democrats and the radical left continue to insult Middle Americans, the Middle Class, the working classes and those who want to work, they will be in for an even bigger surprise. While leftists are so wrapped up in their collective angry meltdowns and adult temper tantrums, Trump is working hard to overturn job and business killing regulations, and get Americans back to work. “Drunk with words, spin, and snark, middle-class journalists can’t be bothered to notice the complex physical constructions that make modern civilization possible,” Camille Paglia said. “The laborers who build and maintain these marvels are recognized only if they can be shoehorned into victim status. But if they dare to think for themselves and vote differently from their liberal overlords, they are branded as rubes and pariahs.”
Meanwhile good Americans need to stand up, speak out, and fight back. All need to remember Thomas Jefferson’s words: “I have sworn on the altar of God eternal enmity against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Nothing will change until you do.

Democrats will be tearing their own hair out now that the citizenry can clearly see what they are. Stay safe America
Democrats trapped in their hate-filled corner
June 22, 2017 By Judi McLeod
So-called ‘White Obama’ Jon Ossoff’s defeat in the special election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional district yesterday makes it clear that the Democrats are going down in the water for the third time with no lifeguard coming to save them.
Resistance leaders Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the hordes of entertainment industry celebrities, mainstream media puppets, their hate-spewing and violence are killing the Democrat Party and driving it deeper into exile.
People have had it up to here with an ex-president using paid activists to revive his policies
CNN’s Don Lemon, who compared Ossoff to Barack Obama: “His cadence is almost the same”, did the deplorables a favor.
People have had it up to here with an ex-president using paid activists to revive his policies after he’s no longer in office.
Media smearing of ‘the citizen enemy’ don’t cut it any more. Protests aren’t getting the progressives what they demand and the ability to raise and spend more than $30-million on what was arguably most expensive House race in history did not bring the progressive left out of their post presidential election exile, and likely won’t in our lifetime.
Voters knew that the more than $30-million raised and spent came from mostly out of state donations and from malcontent Hollywood liberals, who will never follow through on their melodramatic promises to leave the country.
In spite of the caterwauling of the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and other Fake News providers, Republicans are now 4 of 4 in special election outcomes since Donald Trump won the White House.
You can slap the word ‘special’ on anything but that won’t make your mission any more special.
Take notice, Mr. Special Counsel Mueller.
The continued hateful rhetoric, intimidation, threats of violence, calls for assassinations and impeachment have boomeranged right back on the deranged Democrats where it truthfully belongs.
Their piercing screams of outrage have awakened the sleeping giant known as The Electorate, who see clearly through pantsuit-wearing feminist Hillary Clinton and an ex-president who defiantly refuses to go away and has an army of malcontents awaiting his direction.
The Democrat party has refused to infuse any positive in their message and spend the majority of their time on a Russian conspiracy in which there is no there, there.
Liz Peek of Fox News said it best: ‘Message from Georgia: Hating Trump is not a platform’.
“Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District.
“Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful that both those claims are true.
“What is undoubtedly true is this: despising Donald Trump is not much of a platform.
“Ossoff, who received gobs of money from outside Georgia and doesn’t even live in the 6th District, started his campaign by exhorting voters to “Make Trump Furious.” But more recently he backed off that attack line, and ran what even the New York Times called a “milquetoast” campaign. He portrayed himself as a centrist, with a platform about as thin as his resume.”
The same activist politicians who once so quickly declared ‘You can’t put lipstick on a pig’ are now the pigs wearing the lipstick
The progressives have done an effective job in getting the MSM to disseminate the message in every corner of the world that Trump’s a buffoon, a misogynist, an agent provocateur who worked with the Russians to “steal the 2016 presidential election” from Obama protégé Hillary Clinton.
Sit in any barber’s chair in London, England, hang out with the guys at the corner pool hall in Lisbon, Portugal, wander into the subject of politics at the dinner table of your own relatives and the subject inevitably turns into Trump trashing.
Problem for the Democrats immortalizing the Trash Trump message is that members of the chattering classes in London, Lisbon, etc., can’t vote for over-the-top Democrats, they can only hopelessly mouth their message.
The same activist politicians who once so quickly declared ‘You can’t put lipstick on a pig’ are now the pigs wearing the lipstick.
The leaders of their Resistance, Obama and Clinton are so 1960s. They can’t move off the resentment and hatred where November 8, 2016 left them, and can’t find their way back to power, while the citizen world moves on without them.
Coming up with the money for the rent and the mortgage, finding good paying jobs, getting on with life in economic challenged times is more important to them than listening to the laments of well-paid politicians.
Newt Gingrich: “Democrats said Georgia was a referendum on Trump. They’re right – Trump won.”
In spite of the media hype, the coming protests over the months ahead, this is the bleak corner into which the progressives have painted themselves.
“A win was vital to Democrats, who need to rebuild their demoralized party. (FoxNews) They have virtually no chance of retaking the Senate in 2018, given the seats that are in play. Thus, the focus is on reclaiming the House, for which they will need to win 24 seats. So far, they are batting zero. In the just-concluded South Carolina contest, the GOP candidate running to fill the seat of Budget Director Mick Mulvaney won, as expected.
Also, on April 11, Democrats lost the race for Kansas’ 4th District seat, called to replace Mike Pompeo who became head of the CIA.”
The bragging and false bravado of the Democrats took a nosedive under the bright spotlights of the public stage last night.
As Newt Gingrich reminds them: “Democrats said Georgia was a referendum on Trump. They’re right – Trump won.”
Democrats will be tearing their own hair out now that the citizenry can clearly see what they are.
Stay safe America.

Leftist revolution ended, as all leftist revolutions do, in blood and violence
June 22, 2017 By Daniel Greenfield
If you want to know who has privilege in a society and who doesn’t, follow the anger.
There are people in this country who can safely express their anger. And those who can’t. If you’re angry that Trump won, your anger is socially acceptable. If you were angry that Obama won, it wasn’t.
James Hodgkinson’s rage was socially acceptable. It continued to be socially acceptable until he crossed the line into murder. And he’s not alone. There’s Micah Xavier Johnson, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Dallas, and Gavin Long, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Baton Rouge. If you’re black and angry about the police, your anger is celebrated. If you’re white and angry about the Terror travel ban, the Paris Climate treaty, ObamaCare repeal or any leftist cause, you’re on the side of the angry angels.
But if you’re white and angry that your job is going to China or that you just missed being killed in a Muslim suicide bombing, your anger is unacceptable.
If you’re an angry leftist, your party leader, Tom Perez will scream and curse into a microphone, and your aspiring presidential candidate, Kirsten Gillibrand, will curse along, to channel the anger of the base. But if you’re an angry conservative, then Trump channeling your anger is “dangerous” because you aren’t allowed to be angry.
Not all anger is created equal. Some anger is privileged rage.
Good anger gets you a gig as a CNN commentator. Bad anger gets you hounded out of your job. Good anger isn’t described as anger at all. Instead it’s linguistically whitewashed as “passionate” or “courageous”. Bad anger however is “worrying” or “dangerous”. Angry left-wing protesters “call out”, angry right-wing protesters “threaten”. Good anger is left-wing. Bad anger is right-wing.
Socially acceptable displays of anger, from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter riots to the anti-Trump marches to the furious campus protests, are invariably left-wing.
Left-wing anger over the elections of Bush and Trump was sanctified. Right-wing outrage over Obama’s victory was demonized. Now that left-wing anger led a Bernie Sanders volunteer to open fire at a Republican charity baseball practice outing. And the media reluctantly concedes that maybe both sides should moderate their rhetoric. Before listing examples that lean to the right like “Lock her up”.
Not all anger is created equal. Anger, like everything else, is ideologically coded
Why were chants of “Lock her up” immoderate, but not Bush era cries of “Jail to the chief”? Why were Tea Party rallies “ominous” but the latest We Hate Trump march is “courageous”? Why is killing Trump on stage the hottest thing to hit Shakespeare while a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask was hounded by everyone from the Lieutenant Governor of Missouri to the NAACP?
Not all anger is created equal. Anger, like everything else, is ideologically coded. Left-wing anger is good because its ideological foundations are good. Right-wing anger is bad because its ideology is bad.
It’s not the level of anger, its intensity or its threatening nature that makes it good or bad.
And that is why the left so easily slips into violence. All its ideological ends are good. Therefore its means, from mass starvation to gulags to riots and tyranny, must be good. If I slash your tires because of your Obama bumper sticker”, I’m a monster. But if you key my car because of my Trump bumper sticker, you’re fighting racism and fascism. Your tactics might be in error, but your viewpoint isn’t.
There are no universal standards of behavior. Civility, like everything else, is ideologically limited.
Tone policing is how the anger of privileged leftists is protected while the frustration of their victims is suppressed
Intersectionality frowns on expecting civil behavior from “oppressed” protesters. Asking that shrieking campus crybully not to scream threats in your face is “tone policing”. An African-American millionaire’s child at Yale is fighting for her “existence”, unlike the Pennsylvania coal miner, the Baltimore police officer and the Christian florist whose existences really are threatened.
Tone policing is how the anger of privileged leftists is protected while the frustration of their victims is suppressed. The existence of tone policing as a specific term to protect displays of left-wing anger shows the collapse of civility into anger privilege. Civility has been replaced by a political entitlement to anger.
The left prides itself on an unearned moral superiority (“When they go low, we go high”) reinforced by its own echo chamber even as it has become incapable of controlling its angry outbursts. The national tantrum after Trump’s victory has all but shut down the government, turned every media outlet into a non-stop feed of conspiracy theories and set off protests that quickly escalated into street violence.
But Trump Derangement Syndrome is a symptom of a problem with the left that existed before he was born. The left is an angry movement. It is animated by an outraged self-righteousness whose moral superiority doubles as dehumanization. And its machinery of culture glamorizes its anger. The media dresses up the seething rage so that the left never has to look at its inner Hodgkinson in the mirror.
The angry left has gained a great deal of powerThe left is as angry as ever. Campus riots and assassinations of Republican politicians are nothing new. What is changing is that its opponents are beginning to match its anger. The left still clings to the same anger it had when it was a theoretical movement with plans, but little impact on the country. The outrage at the left is no longer ideological. There are millions of people whose health care was destroyed by ObamaCare, whose First Amendment rights were taken away, whose land was seized, whose children were turned against them and whose livelihoods were destroyed.
The angry left has gained a great deal of power. It has used that power to wreck lives. It is feverishly plotting to deprive nearly 63 million Americans of their vote by using its entrenched power in the government, the media and the non-profit sector. And it is too blinded by its own anger over the results of the election to realize the anger over its wholesale abuses of power and privileged tantrums.
But monopolies on anger only work in totalitarian states. In a free society, both sides are expected to control their anger and find terms on which to debate and settle issues. The left rejects civility and refuses to control its anger. The only settlement it will accept is absolute power. If an election doesn’t go its way, it will overturn the results. If someone offends it, he must be punished. Or there will be anger.
The angry left demands that everyone recognize the absolute righteousness of its anger as the basis for its power. This anger privilege, like tone policing, is often cast in terms of oppressed groups. But its anger isn’t in defiance of oppression, but in pursuit of oppression.
Anger privilege is used to silence opposition, to enforce illegal policies and to seize power. But the left’s monopolies on anger are cultural, not political. The entertainment industry and the media can enforce anger privilege norms through public shaming, but their smears can’t stop the consequences of the collapse of civility in public life. There are no monopolies on emotion.
James Hodgkinson absorbed all this. The left fed his anger. And eventually he snapped
When anger becomes the basis for political power, then it won’t stop with Howard Dean or Bernie Sanders. That’s what the left found out in the last election. Its phony pearl clutching was a reaction to the consequences of its destruction of civility. Its reaction to that show of anger by conservatives and independents was to escalate the conflict. Instead of being the opposition, the left became the “resistance”. Trump was simultaneously Hitler and a traitor. Republicans were evil beasts.
James Hodgkinson absorbed all this. The left fed his anger. And eventually he snapped.
Anger has to go somewhere.
The left likes to think that its anger is good anger because it’s angry over the plight of illegal aliens, Muslim terrorists, transgender bathrooms, the lack of abortion in South Carolina, the minimum wage at Taco Bell, budget cuts, tax cuts, police arrests, drone strikes and all the other ways in which reality differs from its utopia. But all that anger isn’t the road to a better world, but to hate and violence.
Millions of leftists, just like Hodgkinson, are told every day that Republicans are responsible for everything wrong with their lives, the country and the planet. Despite everything they do, all the petitions they sign, the marches they attend, the donations, the angry letters, the social media rants, Republicans continue to exist and even be elected to public office. Where does that anger go?
Leftist anger is a privileged bubble of entitlement that bursts every other election
Either we have a political system based on existing laws and norms of civility. Or we have one based on coups and populist leftist anger. And there are already a whole bunch of those south of the border.
Leftist anger is a privileged bubble of entitlement that bursts every other election. Its choice is to try to understand the rest of the country or to intimidate, censor, oppress and eventually kill them.
James Hodgkinson took the latter course. His personal leftist revolution ended, as all leftist revolutions do, in blood and violence. The left can check its anger privilege and examine its entitlement.
Or his violence will be our future.
