You’re Half Right

Jeffrey Folks, a good guy, reports:

There exists among progressives a widespread culture of intolerance and hatred directed at the middle class. I’m not the only one, I’m sure, who finds the behavior of Robert De Niro, Jimmy Kimmell, Joy Behar, and the rest of them repellant.

With the Trump presidency, everyday citizens have gained a voice in Washington.

Half right, as we said.

We haven’t “gained a voice”. What we’ve gained is somebody saying what the silent majority have always thought, somebody with a big megaphone, somebody who’ve put all of us on notice that we’re not alone! A lot of us discovered, with the advent of blogs, that those thoughts we’d always thought were just ours alone were actually shared with a YUGE “minority” of other Americans. We’d kept our mouths shut because it was “probably just us” and who wants to stick out like a sore thumb, but some of us did finally, on the Internetz, find a way to at least put it out there, as the kids say. And were promptly overwhelmed by how many people thought just like us.

What we’ve gained is a preference cascade. Suddenly all of those ordinary Americans who kept a low profile because they didn’t want to be the only ones rocking the boat realized that they’re not, we’re not, alone.

At exactly the same time, media attacks on these Americans have exploded. The inference is clear: Hollywood, the mainstream media, and academe believe that ordinary Americans must be silenced. Only the “smart” ones, as leftists consider themselves, have a right to be heard. The left is attempting to silence the opposition and has been doing so for a long time.

That’s hardly news. Look through history at any movement of the left and you’ll find that that’s exactly the first thing they ever do, from Marx to Lenin to Hitler and onwards.

The fact that there are still people in this world who are not of the left who thinks that leftists are just a group of people who mean no harm, they just have a different ideology, never seems to baffle us. Apparently 100,000,000 (low number these days) dead at their hands is still not enough to make some sub-zero IQ individuals wake up and smell the coffee.

They want us silent, alright, and who’s more silent than a corpse?

The media were hoping Trump would fail at the Singapore summit. Now that he has succeeded, that success is not being reported. All that CNN could say of the historic success is that Trump’s achievement “appeared to upend decades of US policy in Asia.”

Said “policy”, going back through presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush again, Chocolate Jeebus, being “let’s just throw the shrinking wealth of the American people at the murderers so they can murder more people and nobody will notice”. Keep the Danegeld going and we’ll never have to fight for ourselves. Good job, you puling cowards. If anything needed “upending”, it was that.

There are many ways of silencing the opposition, including the covert activities of the FBI and DOJ. If they hate us that much, they feel justified in using any means necessary, no matter how improper or illegal.

See “Enabling Act, the” of 1930s Germany. No, the FBI is in no way different from the Gestapo, the RSHA, the SS or their successors, the Stasi. Slightly less murderous, perhaps, although certain individuals might disagree (see Ruby Ridge), but that’s only a matter of numbers. The methods are the same.

If progressives are so smart, why do their policies fail when those of conservatives succeed, as they have been doing under President Trump? And why don’t progressives seem to care whether they succeed or fail?

It’s because they don’t care, period. About anything but themselves and their power to make others do as they say, because they’re too bloody incompetent to accomplish anything on their own. “You didn’t build that?” That’s the leftist inferiority complex in a nutshell. They just can’t abide the fact that some people are better than they are, that they can do things on their own, and they’re constantly searching for explanations as to how it’s NOT because those individuals are better than they are, they just had an “unfair” advantage. Otherwise they’d have to face their own uselessness.

Fortunately, conservatives have not succumbed to this sort of extremism. No matter how much we disagree with the left, we still believe that all Americans are entitled to the same protections under the Constitution, chief among them freedom of speech. While he may have strong disagreements, a true conservative does not respond by denying his adversary’s right to speak.

You can stick that where the sun don’t shine, sweetie. If they’re denying me my right to speak or even remotely trying to, I’ll throw it right back in their face an order of magnitude harder, and you can stick your “principles” there too.

My principles don’t include handcuffing myself while the enemy reserves the right to use all four of their legs to kick me in the nuts while chewing my face off. If they won’t follow the rules of civilized discourse, I’m not going to either. Their choice. They need to feel the pain, and they need to feel it to an extent where they’ll beg whatever they pray to for mercy, and then they need to be denied it.

I believe in fairness, but it’s a two way street. If they won’t abide by my ROE, I’m going to throw my ROE out the window.

And I won’t lose a second’s sleep over it.


Destroy them.

They piss on their ashes after we burn them alive.

Or they can agree to follow the rules at any point they choose and we can all agree to disagree. Civilly.

Until then, they can all die in a horrid fire as far as I’m concerned. And I’ll be more than happy to supply the gasoline and matches. I have plenty, and mercy towards a merciless enemy is NOT something they taught me in the academy where I came from, unlike the Gender Studies Majors we put in uniform over HERE. “Warriors” my giddy aunt. They wouldn’t know how to war their way out of a wet paper bag.

    The Progressive CommuNazis live in a fantasy world. They keep pushing, thinking we’ll just keep pulling back. What they fail to understand is that at some point, we aren’t stepping back any further.

    The reaction will be so extreme the survivors will wonder just what happened.

    In the city here, the moral equivalency of rhetoric from the lefties is stifling. As the murderers run free under Rahmbo’s tutelage, (In 2017 the Chicago Police Department solved 114 of the 650 murders that occurred in that same year — just 17.5 percent.) he wants a high speed commuter boondoggle project to improve this city. I live less then a quarter mile from the So. sides district cop shop. I work in their homes for repairs and maintenance. They’re shell shocked and sidelined as the Trump-effect grinds at the plans of the nepotistic elitists and Hilly hold-outs.
    Rahm-tiny dancer-E-man, tried to stack the deck in favor of gun confiscation while the gang banging druggies keep running their carnival of decadence and murder.
    WTF is a G-D fearing, free-hold lovin’ grandpa to do; I, who thinks that the weak need a proper chance to protect their love ones and carry on with their lives.

    They can hate us then, as long as they fear me and those of us that feel the same.
    Wait’ll they get a load (and G/willing a reload) of me, when their poorly planned and witless gun grabbing starts.
    One thing they fail to see is, I don’t need a firearm to queer their kleptocracy. Not while I still have a vehicle to unify voice and action.

    It’s a case from March 7th which looks very much like a murder-suicide during a contentious divorce.

    Sooo… whoever wrote the article you linked to appears to have been 3 months late with the “scoop” and not even FOX has anything to say that remotely resembles what’s in the article.

    What’s truly scary is that I felt a need to dig around rather than just dismiss it out of hand.

    Terrapod growls and barks:

    Heh! anything conceivably in any way (or as this case maybe not) linked to the Clintoons requires second and third review, and a lot of turning over of rocks in the swamp. The one possibly good thing coming out of 30 years of D, R, letter agency and press malfeasance is that a greater percentage of America is now wise to their doings and is pushing to overcome it. Methinks the pendelum is finally swinging right again.

    You’re not wrong about that. What we’re seeing, what we HAVE been seeing ever since the President started his run and started speaking out ‘bigly’, is a preference cascade. Millions waking up to the fact that no, they were NOT crazy and no, they were NOT alone in thinking exactly what he said over and over again on the campaign trail.

    It might not have been obvious to us ‘woke’ political junkies, but there remained and remains millions upon millions of average Americans who do NOT spend a significant part of their lives trying to dig around alternative media to find the real scoop. Good, decent Americans just as upset with everything as the rest of us, but unable to find any validation in the wholly owned subsidiary of the Prozi Party, the Enemedia, and thus likely to just shrug it off as “the way it is.”

    Those millions are waking up, more and more with every fresh outbreak of pants-wetting hysteria and “REEEEE’ing” from the usual suspects (long may they continue choking that chicken!) and yes, that DOES mean that the pendulum is gathering momentum with every week.

    And I suspect that, unfortunately (for the UniParty and their adherents), as is often the case with sudden swings, the pendulum may well swing rather much further in the opposite direction than might be strictly necessary.

    But that’s on them. They sowed the wind etc.
