The American deep state has taken down various opposing regimes via the mechanism of a Color Revolution.

But a sizable question remains: what color for the American Color Revolution?

Last winter we saw pink tried out.

But that was too silly.

Now we’re seeing black.

But that’s too comic.

It quickly turns into a discussion over whether to rename parks named after Andrew Jackson for Jesse or Michael Jackson.

    They are desperate to neuter the First Amendment. Serial liar Piers Morgan has said much the same thing.

    In Britain a Leftist politician has been forced to resign after saying we need to be honest about grooming gangs.

    After all the revelations, they can still shut down debate on this topic.

    It’s so depressing.

    I don’t see this particular editorial as being indicative of endorsing science denialism. It seems to me that it’s more warning against reducing individuals to their respective group averages, which in actuality is the essence of what good HBD should be.

    Critics of HBD often make the fallacy of ignoring statistical thinking, in particular seemingly not being able to think in terms of distributions and basically accusing proponents of HBD of reducing individuals of various groups to their overall group averages. James Damore in his memo explicitly highlighted this distinction, but alas in the frenzied outraged that ensued numerous individuals fell into the very trap of accusing Mr. Damore of implying that somehow all women were inferior to all men in tech and that his female colleagues at Google weren’t as good as his male colleagues. In reality, he merely pointed out that biology may explain in part why percentage wise fewer women than men work in tech, but nothing really suggested that for the women who were able to meet that threshold Mr. Damore felt that they were still somehow lesser than their male counterparts simply by virtue of their gender.

    The irony is that much of the alt-right commits the very same fallacy that the left-wing critics of HBD often make, which is basically reducing individuals to the representative average of their respective groups. In a sense this fundamental fallacy permeates the very essence of identity politics, which is why I’ve always felt that white nationalism, along with black and Hispanic identity politics or the likes, wasn’t nearly as productive an orientation as embracing a mindset of cognitive elitism and learning to think distributionally in terms of separating the individual from the group.

    Recognizing group differences is certainly interesting, valid, and useful in understanding how the world works. But it’s how you treat your fellow citizens based on that knowledge that in my opinion determines whether or not you’re a good and productive human being. In that respect, the cognitive elitists of the HBD realm are vastly better than their ethnic nationalist counterparts.

    Charlottesville is an opportunity for Trump to take a real stand before it’s too late. The basic reality is on his side – this was a lawful, peaceful demonstration, participants were attacked by leftist thugs, and the democrat authorities did stand aside and fail to maintain order, for political reasons. All that can be brought into the open, and even though the left and establishment right will block their ears and shout “la la la” as usual, his base will hear him, provided he takes an aggressive forward stand, rather than the mealy-mouthed apologetic one all the respectable advisers will desperately want him to adopt:

    A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted after the Charlottesville unrest (but before Mr Trump’s Tuesday press conference) could also give clues as to why conservatives are taking pause.

    Fully 77% of Trump voters think the president “did enough” to condemn white nationalist violence in Charlottesville. Two-thirds of them had no problem with the president’s delay in mentioning neo-Nazis and white supremacists by name.

    Perhaps most remarkably, 48% of Trump voters think the Charlottesville white nationalists either “have a point” (37%) or were “mostly right” (11%). And 68% of Trump voters see “a lot of discrimination” against white people in the US.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40952797

    Trump doesn’t have to support “ethno-nationalists”. He just has to stand up for US constitutional rights and against those who seek to forcibly suppress opinions they dislike.

    As all of the political right should, if they have any sense and any instinct for self-preservation, Trump should be adopting the Voltaire position on Charlottesville – we might not agree with their politics, but we’re damned if we’re going to let them be silenced by force. Because the left and the establishment right that are seeking to shut down the white identity lobby do not distinguish between white identity “haters” and all the other “haters” they will come for once the defences are down.

    Once the white identity lobby has been defunded, boycotted, rioted against, blacklisted and silenced, the same methods will be used against “homophobes” and “islamophobes” and “antisemites” and “gun nuts”, and all the rest of the list of groups who are “on the wrong side of history”.

    We are at a turning point, and those on the right who turn their noses up at protecting the basic rights of white nationalists and “Nazis” are just loading the guns that will imminently be turned upon them.

    First they came for the white nationalists …..

    You argue, as usual, for cognitive elitism over ethnic elitism; but the cognitive merit efforts always get hacked by the usual groups with strong ethno-national efforts.

    ‘For I am Saruman the Wise, Saruman Ring-maker, Saruman of Many Colours!’

    I looked then and saw that his robes, which had seemed white, were not so, but were woven of all colours, and if he moved they shimmered and changed hue so that the eye was bewildered.

    ‘I liked white better,’ I said.

    ‘White!’ he sneered. ‘It serves as a beginning. White cloth may be dyed. The white page can be overwritten; and the white light can be broken.’

    ‘In which case it is no longer white,’ said I. ‘And he that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.’

    Steve, so glad you noticed that this particular situation appears to somewhat pre-ordained. I am not saying I am 100% sure C-Ville was a set up, but if we (JohnnyWalker123 and I , perhaps) were to make the case for the prosecution, I think we might give the opposition a good fight.

    1/ Known location of protest – by applying for a permit weeks/months in advance, you have given the “enemy” the where and when. (Flash mobs: flashy for a reason!)

    2/ Terry McAuliffe, ex-Clinton bag man and possibly the most compromised human being on the planet, has control of the VA Law Enforcement Apparatus, specifically the State Police who were in charge of “security” the day of the protest. Foxes literally guarding the henhouse.

    3/ If we are looking at landing more than a glancing blow, we’re gonna need more than just herding the “Unite the Right” attendees into an ambush of unregulated CTRL-Lefters. We need something that’s gonna stick on the weekend news through the early part of the week.

    4/ Then we’re gonna co-ordinate with our silicon valley allies to de-platform these guys. So we’re gonna need a stick to beat them with. Not only are they metaphorical Hitlers, they also a murderers.

    5/ However, our enemy isn’t stupid. These guys are for the most part non-violent guys and only attack when attacked. So…either 1/ we leave the gas (2k violent CTRL-LEFTers w/ clubs and other fun implements) and match (1K ALT-Righters) near each other by shutting down the rally, clearing the park, funneling them through the mob and HOPE we get the fire OR…

    6/ …we light it ourselves. https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/896909627694227456/i-Gr3k77?format=jpg&name=600×314 (Dude allegedly captures photo of driver of car and it’s not the patsy who was arrested. Black suburban alert! Posts on 4Chan! Slow uploads! Disappears after posting!)

    7/ Media whores will dutifully use megaphone to spread the irresistible story of the Nazi running down harmless, cat-loving anti-Nazi protestors.

    8/ No crisis can be left unperturbed. Must use momentum to continually push left; tear down other statues, continually ask craven GOPe cucks to denounce racist murdering Nazis, etc. First Dylann Roof, now this. Every tragedy is an open door opportunity to punish our enemies and churn out 2k word think pieces on the “psychology of the racist nazi”. (But didn’t some radical CTRL-LEFTer just shoot a bunch of GOP congress-critters? Like actually stalked and tried to slay them? Shh….)

    9/ Now the de-platforming. We don’t have to do much co-ordination here, these Silicon Valley and digital types have no backbone. They’ll all fall in line. If they don’t, we’ll accuse them of Nazi harboring. No hosting, or we put them on blast. Let’s put the Alt-right shadow institutions to the test. Oh wait, they don’t have any? Whooo boy.

    10/ Finally, eventually our whores in the press get to hammer Trump, the ultimate target here. Choose wisely, Mr. President. A/ Denounce your greatest fans! Further demoralize them! Be like the other cucks and remember, there’s no greater enemy than to your right! B/ Defend them with the truth, that they were set up, maybe CTRL-Lefters bear some blame here, too. OMG, POTUS HEARTS NAZIS! Another log on the fire setting up his impeachment fire! Has anyone seen Mike Pence?

    Conclusion: So, if this little story is true, who is behind it? Who had the means, motive and opportunity to strike this blow? I don’t think it was the deep state, per se. (I mean, it could be, but hmmm.) I think McAuliffe went to the Clintons, pitched them on the opportunity, and they either set the scene OR, more nefariously, brought in the black suburbans. Have the Feds “infiltrated” these “organizations”? Probably? Or even more scary, no need to because all comms are logged and read anyways via the NSA, so we know exactly what’s happening anyways? Assuming all of that is possible, which is worse? Either way, nothing comforting for me in all of this.

    Perhaps most suspicious is that McAuliffe is said to have 2020 White House ambitions.

    This is something that would benefit McAuliffe directly.

    Would he allow a misguided woman or two to die for his political ambitions? I would say that's a more than likely yes.

    Sorry, man, I lost you there. This crime happened in public in front of hundreds of people. The dude they arrested was the one who ran over the people.

    This was Kristallnacht (in reverse). The Jewish guy who they say shot vom Rath really shot him, but once it happened, it was used by the Nazis as a pretext for an anti-Jewish pogrom. Luckily, because we are in America, so far the American anti-white pogrom is confined to smashing statues (at least so far).

    This was not a planned operation any more than Dylann Roof was a planned operation. They were hoping that some white guy would go nuts, they were trying to provoke the white guys into violence, they were praying to Cthulhu that some white guy would go nuts, but it was not a sure thing - at least not that day. Of course over the long term it's pretty much a sure thing if you wait long enough.

    But the Left operates on the principle that "never let a crisis go to waste" as Emanuel said. So once the dude ran over the lady, they really dined out on it.

    Notice that in the reverse situation, where the guy shot the Republican Congressmen, when the BLM guys shot the cops - nothing, crickets. No one tore down any statues of MLK, no one asked Hillary to denounce BLM (in fact she praised them extra the next day).

    Robert "Deep State Ops R Us" Mueller is a fine example. As blatant and in yo' face as can be with his pick of lawyers working under him. None have donated to Republicans. Half have donated to Hillary and Democrats. The other half must be (my speculation) undocumented Trump haters.

    Mueller and James Comey have taught me to know that whenever I see a high powered DC lawyer on TV is is just bs and sleaze and talking their book with tenuous connection to actual laws. They are their to gull the rubes with all their lawyer speak, when reality is they make it up as they go along like a comic at The Improv. The peasantry has to start seeing though these charlatans.

    To try and draw a serious point from your quip, Steve's pic and your quip about it, really do point to one aspect of the current crisis.

    There's a reason you made the quip. They look luscious. Women--young women--have tremendous sexual power. It's built in.

    But it's precisely why it was a dreadful mistake to give them any kind of political power.
    a) Women are not "designed" for it, they are designed mentally/emotional for having babies and (for civilized races) bonding with men to extract provision. Their impulses about the material/political world veer way too easily to feelings--"cheap feelz". (And birth control and low fertility has made this much worse, with lots of undirected female emotional energy.)
    b) Men naturally appease them and have hard time uniting vis-à-vis women to tell them they are full of crap.

    There was some female reporter at Trump's presser and she just could not restrain herself--repeatedly trying to talk over Trump trying to answer a question. You could just see--hear in her voice and her urgency--that anything Trump said, his very logical points about peaceful assembly, parade permits, and antifa goons coming with their baseball bats and helmets was absolutely irrelevant to her and had zero chance of having any impact or even registering. She just needed, *needed* to get across to Trump that the only important thing was alt-right, bad-raciss, evil. Emotion and feelz unchecked.

    I've come to the conclusion that the only paradigm for a free civilization, is a republic controlled only by responsible, self-sufficient men--essentially the paradigm the founders had in mind. Everything else descends rapidly in tyranny. It may be a tyranny that is able to maintain civilization--say the post-Mao chi-coms. But any other nominally "democratic" form--women and welfare cases voting--is a recipe for chaos and decline.

    It would be great if we could just agree to conduct tests. You go have your matriarchy, let some of us have our patriarchy. We'll see how each fares.

    I'd like clarification on why the police didn't stop the fighting. (Note: I am not an American and definitely not up on how the conditions in southern US are).

    But I have seen more than one video on how European police stop these sort of fights BEFORE they start.

    For example: in a case of Swedish Democrat (anti-immigration party) giving a speech a huge mass of Antifa were gathered there also. There were a huge number of police, some riding horses. The speech went ahead with no fighting, just screeching.

    I'm really confused. In Berkeley I understand that the leftist mayor told the police to stand down.

    They are desperate to neuter the First Amendment. Serial liar Piers Morgan has said much the same thing.

    In Britain a Leftist politician has been forced to resign after saying we need to be honest about grooming gangs.

    After all the revelations, they can still shut down debate on this topic.

    It's so depressing.

    But now rainbows have black and brown.

    The City of Philadelphia has unveiled a new Pride flag that aims to be more reflective of the LGBT community’s racial diversity.

    The new flag expands on creator Gilbert Baker’s original design by including black and brown stripes.

    Amber Hikes, Philadelphia’s director of LGBT Affairs, said the new flag “instills so much pride in me as a queer black woman. This is not going to just be in Philadelphia. This is going to take the nation by storm."

    Flag designer Tierney and the Office of LGBT Affairs have developed a website where people can download the flag for free.

    Steve, so glad you noticed that this particular situation appears to somewhat pre-ordained. I am not saying I am 100% sure C-Ville was a set up, but if we (JohnnyWalker123 and I , perhaps) were to make the case for the prosecution, I think we might give the opposition a good fight.

    1/ Known location of protest – by applying for a permit weeks/months in advance, you have given the “enemy” the where and when. (Flash mobs: flashy for a reason!)

    2/ Terry McAuliffe, ex-Clinton bag man and possibly the most compromised human being on the planet, has control of the VA Law Enforcement Apparatus, specifically the State Police who were in charge of “security” the day of the protest. Foxes literally guarding the henhouse.

    3/ If we are looking at landing more than a glancing blow, we’re gonna need more than just herding the “Unite the Right” attendees into an ambush of unregulated CTRL-Lefters. We need something that’s gonna stick on the weekend news through the early part of the week.

    4/ Then we’re gonna co-ordinate with our silicon valley allies to de-platform these guys. So we’re gonna need a stick to beat them with. Not only are they metaphorical Hitlers, they also a murderers.

    5/ However, our enemy isn't stupid. These guys are for the most part non-violent guys and only attack when attacked. So…either 1/ we leave the gas (2k violent CTRL-LEFTers w/ clubs and other fun implements) and match (1K ALT-Righters) near each other by shutting down the rally, clearing the park, funneling them through the mob and HOPE we get the fire OR…

    6/ …we light it ourselves. https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/896909627694227456/i-Gr3k77?format=jpg&name=600x314 (Dude allegedly captures photo of driver of car and it’s not the patsy who was arrested. Black suburban alert! Posts on 4Chan! Slow uploads! Disappears after posting!)

    7/ Media whores will dutifully use megaphone to spread the irresistible story of the Nazi running down harmless, cat-loving anti-Nazi protestors.

    8/ No crisis can be left unperturbed. Must use momentum to continually push left; tear down other statues, continually ask craven GOPe cucks to denounce racist murdering Nazis, etc. First Dylann Roof, now this. Every tragedy is an open door opportunity to punish our enemies and churn out 2k word think pieces on the “psychology of the racist nazi”. (But didn’t some radical CTRL-LEFTer just shoot a bunch of GOP congress-critters? Like actually stalked and tried to slay them? Shh….)

    9/ Now the de-platforming. We don’t have to do much co-ordination here, these Silicon Valley and digital types have no backbone. They’ll all fall in line. If they don’t, we’ll accuse them of Nazi harboring. No hosting, or we put them on blast. Let’s put the Alt-right shadow institutions to the test. Oh wait, they don’t have any? Whooo boy.

    10/ Finally, eventually our whores in the press get to hammer Trump, the ultimate target here. Choose wisely, Mr. President. A/ Denounce your greatest fans! Further demoralize them! Be like the other cucks and remember, there’s no greater enemy than to your right! B/ Defend them with the truth, that they were set up, maybe CTRL-Lefters bear some blame here, too. OMG, POTUS HEARTS NAZIS! Another log on the fire setting up his impeachment fire! Has anyone seen Mike Pence?

    Conclusion: So, if this little story is true, who is behind it? Who had the means, motive and opportunity to strike this blow? I don’t think it was the deep state, per se. (I mean, it could be, but hmmm.) I think McAuliffe went to the Clintons, pitched them on the opportunity, and they either set the scene OR, more nefariously, brought in the black suburbans. Have the Feds “infiltrated” these "organizations"? Probably? Or even more scary, no need to because all comms are logged and read anyways via the NSA, so we know exactly what’s happening anyways? Assuming all of that is possible, which is worse? Either way, nothing comforting for me in all of this.

    That there is some 5D retconning!

    BTW, I hear the next such event will be called Whitestock.

    "The original panzer crew uniforms, designed by Erwin Rommel, were black with pink piping."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wehrmacht_uniforms says:
    Panzer uniform (Sonderbekleidung der Panzertruppen) consisted of black wool hip-length double-breasted jacket and trousers, with skulls on the collar patches instead of Litzen and, officially until 1942, collar piping in Waffenfarbe (usually the rose-pink of the armor branch, but also gold for former cavalry units in the reconnaissance role or black/white twist for combat engineers). The color and Totenköpfe (skulls) were chosen due to their similarity to the uniforms of August von Mackensen's Black Hussars, and also for practical reasons: the black color made oil stains less visible and a short jacket was less likely to get caught in the machinery.

    No mention is made of Rommel as a fashion designer.

    What happened to the Russian hoopla? They switched to this angle? If the color revolution subversions worked overseas then they can be used domestically as well. The US is a target rich environment for fomenting chaos and strife considering the multi-racial population and the many political divisions within. The deep staters could easily set a blaze that gets out of control. Of all the places that color revolutions were instigated the US may turn out to be the most vulnerable. There’s no reason to have just one color theme but a combination of two might do. The black-pink theme appears to be a good choice.

    Here is the latest MSM take on Trump and Charlottesville, his press conference is grounds for impeachment.

    The legal case for President Trump’s impeachment just grew stronger.

    That’s one lawyer’s take as calls for his impeachment have grown louder after President Trump, in a fiery exchange with reporters, doubled down on his claims “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville. On Tuesday Trump said, “I think there’s blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it. And you don’t have any doubt about it either.”

    In an op-ed on Law Newz, lawyer Elura Nanos points out Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states a president can be impeached upon the “Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” But what exactly are “high crimes and misdemeanors?”

    Citing Harvard Law Professor Noah Feldman, she writes, while Trump’s disastrous press conference isn’t a criminal offense, the historical meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is really any action that “violates the basic principles of government.” She argues under that historical interpretation, Trump’s comments defending the rally qualify as a high crime.

    Unconvinced? Professor Feldman found that the initial drafting of the articles of impeachment used the words “maladministration” which basically means doing a bad job.

    So as the lawyer concludes, if the House of Representatives has the courage to use Trump’s handling of Charlottesville as a legal basis for “high crimes and misdemeanors” they may have a winning case on their hands.

    As she writes, an election isn’t a sentence we should be forced to endure and an impeachment is more of a performance review.

    IOW, "bring me the wrong thinking man, I'll find the crime".
    , @Jack D
    She is correct in that the Constitution doesn't define "high crimes and misdemeanors" and so they are whatever Congress says they are. If a majority of the House and 2/3 of the Senate decides that it's a high crime that Trump puts the alt-left on the same level as the alt-right, then it's a high crime.

    What she is missing is that the Founding Fathers came from the English common law tradition - England doesn't even HAVE a written constitution but certain things are JUST NOT DONE by the government. You could do them, there's no law against doing them, there's no written constitution that says you can't do them, but you never do them anyway because everyone knows it would be wrong.

    One of those things is overthrowing the head of state just because you disagree with him politically. Once you start doing that, then EVERYONE does it and no President will ever be able to complete his term unless he has a bulletproof majority in Congress. Even though "high crimes and misdemeanors" doesn't have an exact meaning, up until now, it has always meant "the President has committed a serious crime" and not just "we disagree with the President politically".

    But the Left doesn't think that way - they think that if they can get away with something then they should do it.

  27. Green should be the color for the name of the attempted demographic revolution being carried out against the United States by the evil Deep State of the American Empire. Although it must be said that less than 10 percent of the Federal Reserve Notes(FRN) are in physical form. Over 90 percent of FRNs are electronic.

    The unpatriotic Deep State pissants who presume to rule the American Empire are close to being routed. The only thing that has saved them from being sent to Paraguay is the machinations of the globalized central banks. The central bankers are the lead actors of the American Empire Deep State.

    That is why the federal funds rate has not been “normalized.” If the federal funds rate was at a somewhat normal level — say 6 percent — the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate would have imploded.

    The treasonous rat Deep State traitors are going to be crushed very soon.

    Look back at the growth of the tree. See what proceeds from what.

    I say that all this, like Radical Reconstruction, is a natural by-product of Abraham Lincoln and his war against the white South. That set the precedent that the Federal Government could wage war against anyone who dared object to the Federal Government and the Elites backing it. When Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation, he made the Negro the Fed's pet creature. the Fed then had a moral justification for slaughtering hundreds of thousands of whites: uplift the poor, innocent Negro.

    Sorry, man, I lost you there. This crime happened in public in front of hundreds of people. The dude they arrested was the one who ran over the people.

    This was Kristallnacht (in reverse). The Jewish guy who they say shot vom Rath really shot him, but once it happened, it was used by the Nazis as a pretext for an anti-Jewish pogrom. Luckily, because we are in America, so far the American anti-white pogrom is confined to smashing statues (at least so far).

    This was not a planned operation any more than Dylann Roof was a planned operation. They were hoping that some white guy would go nuts, they were trying to provoke the white guys into violence, they were praying to Cthulhu that some white guy would go nuts, but it was not a sure thing – at least not that day. Of course over the long term it’s pretty much a sure thing if you wait long enough.

    But the Left operates on the principle that “never let a crisis go to waste” as Emanuel said. So once the dude ran over the lady, they really dined out on it.

    Notice that in the reverse situation, where the guy shot the Republican Congressmen, when the BLM guys shot the cops – nothing, crickets. No one tore down any statues of MLK, no one asked Hillary to denounce BLM (in fact she praised them extra the next day).

    ACLU is the Old Left, the free speech left. The Alt-Left has no interest in free speech. They believe that people who spout “hate” have no right to speak. (This BTW is the law in many countries other than the US – it’s not insane, it’s just not part of the American tradition or constitutional system). K-Sue Park is alt-left.

    Eyes on the prize, as our black brothers and sisters say.

    - Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States of America. Can you believe it?
    - The Trump White House is accomplishing many things every week.
    - Everything that's happening right now is solidifying opposition to liberalism
    - There is a reason that 35 governors are Republican, as are 32 state legislatures
    - The backlash to the destruction of American history will be seen in the midterms
    - Democrats and hard Leftists are showing their heavy hand, Americans will resent it
    - Our $19 trillion debt will start shutting down freebies for immigrants and illegals
    - Through legislation, we still have time to stem the demographic tide.

    I refuse to give up or give in.

    Monument removal goes North:

    Ty Burr, Boston Globe

    Are Boston’s statues honoring all the right men?

    As the racist relics of the American South come slowly down — most recently statues of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis were removed in New Orleans — it’s awfully easy to feel smug up here in New England. We don’t have any of those nasty, historically tainted works of public art here, do we?

    Wait — do we?

    So the question is worth asking: Are we giving some of these memorials, and the history behind them, a pass simply because they’re cast in stone? The public art being removed in the South has issues of provenance, many of them having been put in place years after the Civil War by whites pushing against Reconstruction policies and aiming to re-establish racist dominance. The statuary up here generally springs from less ignoble impulses, but there are skeletons in various closets. No Great Man is all great. Some are decidedly less so, especially in retrospect.

    Christopher Columbus (1979; Andrew J. Mazzola, sculptor; Christopher Columbus Park near Atlantic Avenue). Well, sure, we celebrate his 1492 arrival in the Bahamas as a national holiday, and he’s a lasting figure of cultural pride to the Italian-American community in the North End and across the country. But Columbus and his entourage also introduced smallpox, syphilis, and slavery to the New World, and his Colonial polices and his men were directly responsible for the decimation of the native population of the island of Hispaniola. Wrote the eminent Harvard historian Samuel Eliot Morison in 1955, “The cruel policy initiated by Columbus and pursued by his successors resulted in complete genocide.”

    Samuel Eliot Morison (1982, Penelope Jencks, Commonwealth Avenue Mall between Exeter and Fairfield streets). That eminent historian quoted above? He doesn’t get off scot-free, either. The author of dozens of popular histories, Morison (1887-1976) used language in his writings on slavery that chafed readers even in the 1920s, sentiments along the lines of “As for Sambo, whose wrongs moved the abolitionists to wrath and tears, there is some reason to believe that he suffered less than any other class in the South from its ‘peculiar institution’” (from “The Oxford History of the United States, 1783-1917”). Morison defended the use of such terms as “pickaninnies” on historical grounds, but after years of pressure from civil rights groups, he agreed to change the language in later editions of his works.

    Henry Cabot Lodge (1932, Raymond Porter, State House lawn near Beacon Street). A member of the top tier of Boston’s social elite, Lodge (1850-1924) was a major player in American government during the Gilded Age and the first years of the 20th century. A conservative Republican and the first Senate majority leader, he was a staunch believer in American imperialism, backing the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War, an atrocity-heavy affair that left as many as 250,000 Filipinos dead. He fought to restrict immigration, believed that Northern Italians with “Teutonic” blood were superior to Southern Italians, and warned against the mixing of “higher” and “lower” races.

    John Endecott (1937, Ralph Weld Gray and Carl Paul Jennewein, The Fenway, just to the east of the Museum of Fine Arts). The longest-serving governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Endecott (1588-1664/5) arrived here in 1628 and co-founded a village called Naumkeag, later to become Salem. His intolerance, religious and otherwise, seems to have been evenly spread around: A Separatist Puritan, Endecott had Baptists whipped and Quakers tortured; three Quakers, including Mary Dyer (who has her own statue on the State House grounds), were executed by hanging. He also fomented the Pequot War with atrocities against the natives that ensured they’d rise up against other colonists, thus guaranteeing the tribe’s destruction in 1637.

    Leif Eriksson (1887, Anne Whitney, Commonwealth Avenue Mall near Charlesgate). Why on Earth is there a statue of the 10th Century Norse explorer on the Comm. Ave. mall? For the same reason there’s a stone tower out by Route 128 in Weston on the spot where Eriksson supposedly built a fort six centuries before the arrival of the Pilgrims. (Historical note: He didn’t.)

    The Bush Family (Poppy, Barbara, Dumbya) has spoken out now about Charlottesville, with all the expected, clown media-approved trimmings I'm sure. Have not confirmed if they address the issue of monument destruction, however.

    So, please, please, please Mr. President! Can we have a Tweet sent out to the Bushes, asking if in theory they approve or disapprove of the tearing down of all monuments and toponyms in honor of infamous Texas slaveholders and Indian fighters and Mexico-love-has-no-borders resisters Sam Houston and especially Stephen Austin? And if they are so-for in favor of said removal, aren't they revealed to be the #FakeTexan carpetbagging New England privileged elitists we always knew them to be?

    Makes a lot of sense. This was to keep normies fearful of those who promoted nationalism and white identity.

    Think about it, the ACLU never does conservative whites any favors and in fact is their mortal enemy in the culture wars. They are the first ones to fight against immigration reform; border security; promote affirmative action; attacking Christianity and Christmas; while supporting Islam being taught in public schools up to and including the students saying the Shahada - which is a prayer to become a Muslim.

    If any organization should be banned it's the ACLU.

    Here's the crazy thing. If the ACLU and Left wasn't pushing for special rights for ethnics and sexual deviants. White identity wouldn't be a issue. It was only because the Left along with academia and the political class has repeatedly promoted tribalism and identity politics do we have problems.

    Now it's out of control.

    ‘Hamilton’ Star Leslie Odom Jr. Open to Removal of Washington, Jefferson Statues

    Actor Leslie Odom Jr. says public statues should be erected to “inspire us,” to “teach us,” and to “give us hope,” but if they no longer do so, communities can decide that they don’t want them anymore — even when it comes to statues of America’s Founding Fathers.

    The star of the Broadway sensation Hamilton told TMZ this week that no statue should be “off the table for discussion” on whether or not it could be removed.

    “If we decide as a community that this bronze commemoration is no longer doing that, if it’s no longer inspiring us, if it’s no longer making us feel great about ourselves, they come down for a while, or forever,” he said.

    “You can reexamine things in the future, but if a statue has to come down for a minute, we’re allowed to do that,” Odom added.

    “We’re even allowed to do that Thomas Jefferson and George Washington,” he added. “We’re allowed to. They’re not off the table for discussion. I think it’s a great question.”

    The Bush Family (Poppy, Barbara, Dumbya) has spoken out now about Charlottesville, with all the expected, clown media-approved trimmings I’m sure. Have not confirmed if they address the issue of monument destruction, however.

    So, please, please, please Mr. President! Can we have a Tweet sent out to the Bushes, asking if in theory they approve or disapprove of the tearing down of all monuments and toponyms in honor of infamous Texas slaveholders and Indian fighters and Mexico-love-has-no-borders resisters Sam Houston and especially Stephen Austin? And if they are so-for in favor of said removal, aren’t they revealed to be the #FakeTexan carpetbagging New England privileged elitists we always knew them to be?

    How did it come to this?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVEYcTyj1Do

    Look back at the growth of the tree. See what proceeds from what.

    I say that all this, like Radical Reconstruction, is a natural by-product of Abraham Lincoln and his war against the white South. That set the precedent that the Federal Government could wage war against anyone who dared object to the Federal Government and the Elites backing it. When Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation, he made the Negro the Fed’s pet creature. the Fed then had a moral justification for slaughtering hundreds of thousands of whites: uplift the poor, innocent Negro.

    Also, what about Ken Burns, who has ANOTHER documentary coming out now on PBS. His CIVIL WAR was a minor cultural phenomenon of the 90′s, sparking interest in Civil War history, getting lots of guys into the historical reenactment hobby, and causing lots of Civil War-themed books and a couple mainstream, pretty high-profile movies to be put out.

    All of this was largely based on his even-handed and generous treatment of the Confederate side. Mr. President, please ask Ken Burns if he now regrets his normalizing of treason and slaveholding and how exactly he intends to atone for it if he does.

    Targeting Southern/Confederate heritage is a fairly recent thing (contra idiots who think there has always been a "cold civil war").

    I think the beginning was the NY Times Bestseller Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz (1998). The book pretends to be an objective exploration of Civil War reenactor/buff/heritage culture but actually goes to great lengths to portray Confederate/Southern heritage enthusiasts (including Shelby Foote) as basically Nazis and klansmen.

    2/ Terry McAuliffe, ex-Clinton bag man and possibly the most compromised human being on the planet, has control of the VA Law Enforcement Apparatus, specifically the State Police who were in charge of “security” the day of the protest. Foxes literally guarding the henhouse.
     
    Perhaps most suspicious is that McAuliffe is said to have 2020 White House ambitions.

    This is something that would benefit McAuliffe directly.

    Would he allow a misguided woman or two to die for his political ambitions? I would say that's a more than likely yes.

    I’d like clarification on why the police didn’t stop the fighting. (Note: I am not an American and definitely not up on how the conditions in southern US are).

    But I have seen more than one video on how European police stop these sort of fights BEFORE they start.

    For example: in a case of Swedish Democrat (anti-immigration party) giving a speech a huge mass of Antifa were gathered there also. There were a huge number of police, some riding horses. The speech went ahead with no fighting, just screeching.

    I’m really confused. In Berkeley I understand that the leftist mayor told the police to stand down.

    Here is the latest MSM take on Trump and Charlottesville, his press conference is grounds for impeachment.

    The legal case for President Trump’s impeachment just grew stronger.

    That’s one lawyer’s take as calls for his impeachment have grown louder after President Trump, in a fiery exchange with reporters, doubled down on his claims “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville. On Tuesday Trump said, “I think there's blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it. And you don't have any doubt about it either."

    In an op-ed on Law Newz, lawyer Elura Nanos points out Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states a president can be impeached upon the “Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” But what exactly are “high crimes and misdemeanors?”

    Citing Harvard Law Professor Noah Feldman, she writes, while Trump’s disastrous press conference isn’t a criminal offense, the historical meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is really any action that “violates the basic principles of government.” She argues under that historical interpretation, Trump’s comments defending the rally qualify as a high crime.

    Unconvinced? Professor Feldman found that the initial drafting of the articles of impeachment used the words “maladministration” which basically means doing a bad job.

    So as the lawyer concludes, if the House of Representatives has the courage to use Trump’s handling of Charlottesville as a legal basis for “high crimes and misdemeanors” they may have a winning case on their hands.

    As she writes, an election isn’t a sentence we should be forced to endure and an impeachment is more of a performance review.

     

    Professor Feldman found that the initial drafting of the articles of impeachment used the words “maladministration” which basically means doing a bad job.

    Interesting. The original panzer crew uniforms, designed by Erwin Rommel, were black with pink piping. I guess this is sort of an homage then, right?

    “The original panzer crew uniforms, designed by Erwin Rommel, were black with pink piping.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wehrmacht_uniforms says:
    Panzer uniform (Sonderbekleidung der Panzertruppen) consisted of black wool hip-length double-breasted jacket and trousers, with skulls on the collar patches instead of Litzen and, officially until 1942, collar piping in Waffenfarbe (usually the rose-pink of the armor branch, but also gold for former cavalry units in the reconnaissance role or black/white twist for combat engineers). The color and Totenköpfe (skulls) were chosen due to their similarity to the uniforms of August von Mackensen’s Black Hussars, and also for practical reasons: the black color made oil stains less visible and a short jacket was less likely to get caught in the machinery.

    No mention is made of Rommel as a fashion designer.

    Will Trump be able to survive this latest revelation?

    THE NEW YORK TIMES

    Confederate General Robert E. Lee Believed to Be Russian Go-Between

    By GLENN THRUSH and MAGGIE HABERMAN Aug. 18, 2017

    WASHINGTON — Two weeks after Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination last year, Confederate General Robert E. Lee arranged a meeting on the campus of Washington & Lee University with a former Russian military officer who has connections to the Kremlin, according to multiple sources within U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

    Following the discovery of this new information, U.S. intelligence agencies are reexamining data collected over the last 18 months concerning Russian interference with the U.S. presidential election under the theory that General Lee may have personally downloaded emails directly from DNC computers onto a portable storage device which was subsequently provided to agents of the Russian government which in turn provided the emails to Wikileaks.

    According to documents reviewed by The New York Times, all seventeen U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed in a report that there is a high likelihood that General Lee colluded with the Russian government to influence the election in favor of Donald J. Trump.

    Investigators are working to discover the extent to which contacts and conversations occurred between General Lee and representatives of the Trump campaign.

  71. President Trump has targeted Deep State stooge Jeff Flake for removal from the US Senate. Arizona GOP Senator Jeff Flake is a treasonous rat who pushes nation-wrecking mass immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders. Jeff Flake is actively involved in activities that undermine and weaken the national security interests of the United States.

    Jeff Flake voted for the 2013 Mass Immigration Surge/Illegal Alien Amnesty bill(S744). That immigration bill would have doubled or tripled the number of legal immigrants flooding into the United States. The bill Jeff Flake voted for would have given amnesty to 10 to 30 million illegal alien invaders.

    Jeff Flake, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, John McCain and all the other treasonous politician whore senators who voted for the Mass Immigration Surge/Illegal Alien Amnesty bill(S744) should be removed from the United States Senate.

    I was wondering for a second what the photo of the kpop girl group BLACKPINK does here. I would not mind if these four girls are our next rulers.

    I would not mind if these four girls are our next rulers.

    To try and draw a serious point from your quip, Steve’s pic and your quip about it, really do point to one aspect of the current crisis.

    There’s a reason you made the quip. They look luscious. Women–young women–have tremendous sexual power. It’s built in.

    But it’s precisely why it was a dreadful mistake to give them any kind of political power.
    a) Women are not “designed” for it, they are designed mentally/emotional for having babies and (for civilized races) bonding with men to extract provision. Their impulses about the material/political world veer way too easily to feelings–”cheap feelz”. (And birth control and low fertility has made this much worse, with lots of undirected female emotional energy.)
    b) Men naturally appease them and have hard time uniting vis-à-vis women to tell them they are full of crap.

    There was some female reporter at Trump’s presser and she just could not restrain herself–repeatedly trying to talk over Trump trying to answer a question. You could just see–hear in her voice and her urgency–that anything Trump said, his very logical points about peaceful assembly, parade permits, and antifa goons coming with their baseball bats and helmets was absolutely irrelevant to her and had zero chance of having any impact or even registering. She just needed, *needed* to get across to Trump that the only important thing was alt-right, bad-raciss, evil. Emotion and feelz unchecked.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that the only paradigm for a free civilization, is a republic controlled only by responsible, self-sufficient men–essentially the paradigm the founders had in mind. Everything else descends rapidly in tyranny. It may be a tyranny that is able to maintain civilization–say the post-Mao chi-coms. But any other nominally “democratic” form–women and welfare cases voting–is a recipe for chaos and decline.

    It would be great if we could just agree to conduct tests. You go have your matriarchy, let some of us have our patriarchy. We’ll see how each fares.

    Charlottesville is an opportunity for Trump to take a real stand before it's too late. The basic reality is on his side - this was a lawful, peaceful demonstration, participants were attacked by leftist thugs, and the democrat authorities did stand aside and fail to maintain order, for political reasons. All that can be brought into the open, and even though the left and establishment right will block their ears and shout "la la la" as usual, his base will hear him, provided he takes an aggressive forward stand, rather than the mealy-mouthed apologetic one all the respectable advisers will desperately want him to adopt:


    A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted after the Charlottesville unrest (but before Mr Trump's Tuesday press conference) could also give clues as to why conservatives are taking pause.

    Fully 77% of Trump voters think the president "did enough" to condemn white nationalist violence in Charlottesville. Two-thirds of them had no problem with the president's delay in mentioning neo-Nazis and white supremacists by name.

    Perhaps most remarkably, 48% of Trump voters think the Charlottesville white nationalists either "have a point" (37%) or were "mostly right" (11%). And 68% of Trump voters see "a lot of discrimination" against white people in the US.

    Trump doesn't have to support "ethno-nationalists". He just has to stand up for US constitutional rights and against those who seek to forcibly suppress opinions they dislike.

    As all of the political right should, if they have any sense and any instinct for self-preservation, Trump should be adopting the Voltaire position on Charlottesville - we might not agree with their politics, but we're damned if we're going to let them be silenced by force. Because the left and the establishment right that are seeking to shut down the white identity lobby do not distinguish between white identity "haters" and all the other "haters" they will come for once the defences are down.

    Once the white identity lobby has been defunded, boycotted, rioted against, blacklisted and silenced, the same methods will be used against "homophobes" and "islamophobes" and "antisemites" and "gun nuts", and all the rest of the list of groups who are "on the wrong side of history".

    We are at a turning point, and those on the right who turn their noses up at protecting the basic rights of white nationalists and "Nazis" are just loading the guns that will imminently be turned upon them.

    First they came for the white nationalists .....

    Agree.

    (I’m not allowed to push the agree button.)

    Maybe the real purpose of the ACLU defending those old time neo-nazis and the KKK was to keep those groups in the public eye and remind the normies what pro-white advocacy looks like. I'm sure they're hoping to lump the alt-right in there too.

    Makes a lot of sense. This was to keep normies fearful of those who promoted nationalism and white identity.

    Think about it, the ACLU never does conservative whites any favors and in fact is their mortal enemy in the culture wars. They are the first ones to fight against immigration reform; border security; promote affirmative action; attacking Christianity and Christmas; while supporting Islam being taught in public schools up to and including the students saying the Shahada – which is a prayer to become a Muslim.

    If any organization should be banned it’s the ACLU.

    Here’s the crazy thing. If the ACLU and Left wasn’t pushing for special rights for ethnics and sexual deviants. White identity wouldn’t be a issue. It was only because the Left along with academia and the political class has repeatedly promoted tribalism and identity politics do we have problems.

    Now it’s out of control.

    Here is the latest MSM take on Trump and Charlottesville, his press conference is grounds for impeachment.

    The legal case for President Trump’s impeachment just grew stronger.

    That’s one lawyer’s take as calls for his impeachment have grown louder after President Trump, in a fiery exchange with reporters, doubled down on his claims “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville. On Tuesday Trump said, “I think there's blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it. And you don't have any doubt about it either."

    In an op-ed on Law Newz, lawyer Elura Nanos points out Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states a president can be impeached upon the “Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” But what exactly are “high crimes and misdemeanors?”

    Citing Harvard Law Professor Noah Feldman, she writes, while Trump’s disastrous press conference isn’t a criminal offense, the historical meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is really any action that “violates the basic principles of government.” She argues under that historical interpretation, Trump’s comments defending the rally qualify as a high crime.

    Unconvinced? Professor Feldman found that the initial drafting of the articles of impeachment used the words “maladministration” which basically means doing a bad job.

    So as the lawyer concludes, if the House of Representatives has the courage to use Trump’s handling of Charlottesville as a legal basis for “high crimes and misdemeanors” they may have a winning case on their hands.

    As she writes, an election isn’t a sentence we should be forced to endure and an impeachment is more of a performance review.

     

    She is correct in that the Constitution doesn’t define “high crimes and misdemeanors” and so they are whatever Congress says they are. If a majority of the House and 2/3 of the Senate decides that it’s a high crime that Trump puts the alt-left on the same level as the alt-right, then it’s a high crime.

    What she is missing is that the Founding Fathers came from the English common law tradition – England doesn’t even HAVE a written constitution but certain things are JUST NOT DONE by the government. You could do them, there’s no law against doing them, there’s no written constitution that says you can’t do them, but you never do them anyway because everyone knows it would be wrong.

    One of those things is overthrowing the head of state just because you disagree with him politically. Once you start doing that, then EVERYONE does it and no President will ever be able to complete his term unless he has a bulletproof majority in Congress. Even though “high crimes and misdemeanors” doesn’t have an exact meaning, up until now, it has always meant “the President has committed a serious crime” and not just “we disagree with the President politically”.

    But the Left doesn’t think that way – they think that if they can get away with something then they should do it.

    Not "so". Even if "high crimes and misdemeanors" were defined, they would still be whatever Congress says they are. And the President is free to disagree, although it's doubtful any significant portion of the executive apparatus would take his side.

    The miscalculation that liberals and the media makes is to make blacks the moral center of gravity or arbiters of decency for the masses. Most Americans shape important decisions in their lives by keeping away from areas with a lot of blacks. So the dominant narrative of the media runs straight into reality. Removing Confederates isn’t on anyone’s radar it’s like the Redskins name change debacle. Liberal sports writers swore it was demonizing to Native Americans. Then a poll came out of native Americans and 90% of the could care less about it.

    To try and draw a serious point from your quip, Steve's pic and your quip about it, really do point to one aspect of the current crisis.

    There's a reason you made the quip. They look luscious. Women--young women--have tremendous sexual power. It's built in.

    But it's precisely why it was a dreadful mistake to give them any kind of political power.
    a) Women are not "designed" for it, they are designed mentally/emotional for having babies and (for civilized races) bonding with men to extract provision. Their impulses about the material/political world veer way too easily to feelings--"cheap feelz". (And birth control and low fertility has made this much worse, with lots of undirected female emotional energy.)
    b) Men naturally appease them and have hard time uniting vis-à-vis women to tell them they are full of crap.

    There was some female reporter at Trump's presser and she just could not restrain herself--repeatedly trying to talk over Trump trying to answer a question. You could just see--hear in her voice and her urgency--that anything Trump said, his very logical points about peaceful assembly, parade permits, and antifa goons coming with their baseball bats and helmets was absolutely irrelevant to her and had zero chance of having any impact or even registering. She just needed, *needed* to get across to Trump that the only important thing was alt-right, bad-raciss, evil. Emotion and feelz unchecked.

    I've come to the conclusion that the only paradigm for a free civilization, is a republic controlled only by responsible, self-sufficient men--essentially the paradigm the founders had in mind. Everything else descends rapidly in tyranny. It may be a tyranny that is able to maintain civilization--say the post-Mao chi-coms. But any other nominally "democratic" form--women and welfare cases voting--is a recipe for chaos and decline.

    It would be great if we could just agree to conduct tests. You go have your matriarchy, let some of us have our patriarchy. We'll see how each fares.

    The City of Philadelphia has unveiled a new Pride flag that aims to be more reflective of the LGBT community’s racial diversity.

    The new flag expands on creator Gilbert Baker’s original design by including black and brown stripes.

    Amber Hikes, Philadelphia’s director of LGBT Affairs, said the new flag “instills so much pride in me as a queer black woman. This is not going to just be in Philadelphia. This is going to take the nation by storm.”

    Flag designer Tierney and the Office of LGBT Affairs have developed a website where people can download the flag for free.

    I'd like clarification on why the police didn't stop the fighting. (Note: I am not an American and definitely not up on how the conditions in southern US are).

    But I have seen more than one video on how European police stop these sort of fights BEFORE they start.

    For example: in a case of Swedish Democrat (anti-immigration party) giving a speech a huge mass of Antifa were gathered there also. There were a huge number of police, some riding horses. The speech went ahead with no fighting, just screeching.

    I'm really confused. In Berkeley I understand that the leftist mayor told the police to stand down.

    Both local and state police report to the worst sort of progtard charlatans. They wanted violence so they forced the protesters to run a gauntlet of Antifa.

    Also, what about Ken Burns, who has ANOTHER documentary coming out now on PBS. His CIVIL WAR was a minor cultural phenomenon of the 90's, sparking interest in Civil War history, getting lots of guys into the historical reenactment hobby, and causing lots of Civil War-themed books and a couple mainstream, pretty high-profile movies to be put out.

    All of this was largely based on his even-handed and generous treatment of the Confederate side. Mr. President, please ask Ken Burns if he now regrets his normalizing of treason and slaveholding and how exactly he intends to atone for it if he does.

    Targeting Southern/Confederate heritage is a fairly recent thing (contra idiots who think there has always been a “cold civil war”).

    I think the beginning was the NY Times Bestseller Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz (1998). The book pretends to be an objective exploration of Civil War reenactor/buff/heritage culture but actually goes to great lengths to portray Confederate/Southern heritage enthusiasts (including Shelby Foote) as basically Nazis and klansmen.

    What she is missing is that the Founding Fathers came from the English common law tradition - England doesn't even HAVE a written constitution but certain things are JUST NOT DONE by the government. You could do them, there's no law against doing them, there's no written constitution that says you can't do them, but you never do them anyway because everyone knows it would be wrong.

    One of those things is overthrowing the head of state just because you disagree with him politically. Once you start doing that, then EVERYONE does it and no President will ever be able to complete his term unless he has a bulletproof majority in Congress. Even though "high crimes and misdemeanors" doesn't have an exact meaning, up until now, it has always meant "the President has committed a serious crime" and not just "we disagree with the President politically".

    But the Left doesn't think that way - they think that if they can get away with something then they should do it.

    They are like Superman–fighting for truth, justice and the “that’s not who we are” American way–ordinary rules don’t apply.

    Maybe the real purpose of the ACLU defending those old time neo-nazis and the KKK was to keep those groups in the public eye and remind the normies what pro-white advocacy looks like. I'm sure they're hoping to lump the alt-right in there too.

    And of course those “neo-nazis” were fakes led by a Jew named Frank Collin.

    I'd like clarification on why the police didn't stop the fighting. (Note: I am not an American and definitely not up on how the conditions in southern US are).

    But I have seen more than one video on how European police stop these sort of fights BEFORE they start.

    For example: in a case of Swedish Democrat (anti-immigration party) giving a speech a huge mass of Antifa were gathered there also. There were a huge number of police, some riding horses. The speech went ahead with no fighting, just screeching.

    I'm really confused. In Berkeley I understand that the leftist mayor told the police to stand down.

    The city police were not in charge of the security. The State of Virginia police were responsible for security.

    The governor ofVirginia is the person who has authority over the state police.
    The head officer of the Virginia State Police has repeatedly stated that the governor ordered the state police to stand down.

    The entire thing was a set up to make Whites look bad.

    It certainly looks that way. Perhaps in the European cases, they didn't want Antifa to look bad.

    But I think they have lower tolerance for violence in general.

    I saw a vid where a huge police presence was used in Germany to stop Kurds and Turks from fighting with each other (as if they didn't have enough problems already, now they have imported groups that are antagonist against each other).

    OT, I know there’s a lot of Dylan haters around here that will be delighted to know that in “When the Deal Goes Down” Dylan borrowed from the poet Henry Timrod whom Alfred Lord Tennyson called the Poet Laureate of the Confederacy. So Dylan’s obviously a hater and will probably be watsoned.
     
    Morris Dees raised money for George Wallace.

    How much of the money for George Wallace did Morris Dees keep for himself?
