More information on the shooting at the anti-First Amendment riot on the University of Washington campus from the Seattle Times:

Man shot at UW no racist, friends insist, despite shooter’s claim

Police say the man who fired the gun Friday night at the University of Washington claimed he had been assaulted by the man he shot, and that he believed he was a white supremacist. Friends of the critically injured man, say he is no racist.

By Steve Miletich and Susan Kelleher
Seattle Times staff reporters

The man who surrendered to police in connection with the University of Washington shooting Friday night was released after telling investigators he fired in self-defense during a campus protest, according to two law-enforcement officials briefed on the case.

No details about any confrontation between him and the critically wounded man were available Saturday. But one of the law-enforcement officials said the man who fired the gun claimed he had been assaulted before shooting the other man, whom he believed to be some type of white supremacist.

The injured man, 34, was in critical condition Saturday at Harborview Medical Center, following surgery. His name was not released.

The shooting, which occurred during a protest of a Friday-night speech at Kane Hall by Breitbart News Network editor and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, remains under investigation.

Two people who said they are friends with the wounded man disputed the characterization of him as a supremacist. One said his friend supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic presidential primary, and both said he sports an anti-hate tattoo that consists of a black swastika surrounded by a red circle with a slash through it.

Max Vohra of Seattle, who has known the man for seven years, said his friend got the tattoo more than a decade ago “when he was living in California, and had to deal with a lot of racists in the punk scene.” The idea for the tattoo, Vohra said, came from a NOFX song called “The Brews,” which references “anti-swastika tattoos.”

Here’s “The Brews” by NOFX:

Lyrics:

Friday night we’ll be drinkin’ Manaschevitz
Going out to terrorize Goyem
Stompin’ Shagitz, screwin’ shicksas
As long as we’re home by Saturday morning

‘Cause hey! We’re the brews
Sporting anti-swastika tattoos
Oi oi, we’re the boys
Orthodox hassidic O.G. Ois

Orthopedic doctor martens good for
Waffle making, kicking through the shins
Reputation gained through intimidation
Pacifism no longer tradition

Cause hey we’re the Brews
Sportin’ anti swastika tattoos
Oi Oi we’re the Brews
The fairfax ghetto boys skinhead Hebrews

We’ve got the might, psycho mashuganas
We can’t lose a fight as we are the chosen ones
Chutzpah driven, we battle then we feast
We celebrate and separate our milk plates from our meat

And here’s a different song by NOFX, a (mostly) white punk group:

The white man call himself civilized,
Cause he know how to take over,
The white man come to pillage my village,
Now he tell me I have to bend over.

Oh yeah, kill all the white man,
Oh yeah, kill all the white man.

NOFX’s “Kill All the White Man” shouldn’t be confused with the similar but earlier “Kill the White People” by Eddie Murphy:

We sing of freedom and ooh equality.
But we really don’t care we just want money money money.
We want to drive in a big black limosine.
Get so high off ganja we can’t even see.
And then we kill the white people. Ooh we gunna make them hurt.
Kill the white people. Yea. Ooh but buy my record first ooh.

When you go in the record store. We gunna wait outside.
We gunna hit them in the head with a bat and make them cry.
But ’till we kill the white people.
Yea but buy my record first.

After that musical interlude, back to the Seattle Times:

Daniel Herrera, who has worked and socialized with the man for three years, said he’s never seen his friend be aggressive.

“He has always been of the mind to be compassionate, empathetic and to educate. That’s his goal,” Herrera said.

UW police offered few details Saturday, saying in a news release that no suspects were being sought, and that the man who said he fired the gun was released pending investigation.

Update: The guy who was shot has had his condition upgraded from critical to serious, so that’s good news.

The shootee is a Wobbly, a member of the famously leftist and brawling Industrial Workers of the World union.

Here’s apparent video of the incident.

The hospitalized Wobbly’s comrades issues a communique accompanied by this photo:

IWW AND GDC MEMBER SHOT IN SEATTLE MEDICAL FUNDRAISERScreenshot 2017-01-22 17.49.38
Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

On the evening of Friday, January 20th, a comrade of ours was shot in the stomach in the most public place on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle – a place called “Red Square” for the color of its bricks rather than its politics.

This Fellow Worker (what members of the IWW call ourselves) and Defender (for GDC members) is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the General Defense Committee of the IWW. …

How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort.

    What of the shooter? What do we know about him? “the man who said he fired the gun was released pending investigation”: is that normal for Washington? Are you really allowed to shoot a guy because he had a stupid tattoo?

    And the abject denials of racism carries some implication that it is justified to shoot racists.

    You never know, maybe the Trump DoJ will take a closer look at this case. That would be fun. Sadly I'm not sure it would be a good move politically because it would be spun as Trump defending neo-Nazis by the same people who claim Trump said 100% of Mexicans are rapists.

    So the guy who did the attempted murder was defending himself from a social construct.
  7. “He has always been of the mind to be compassionate, empathetic and to educate. That’s his goal,” Herrera said.

    The shooter was reported as being an Asian male approximately 50 years old. http://www.kiro7.com/news/local/man-shot-during-uw-event-for-milo-yiannopoulos/486520649

    Weird individual to be involved in a shooting or even a protest.

    My guess is that the suspect in this case was able to present some credible evidence that the shooting was in self-defense. In those cases, the police might release them but continue the investigation and arrest later if they disprove the self-defense claim. Washington is considered a "Stand Your Ground" self-defense state. Also, it probably didn't hurt that the suspect turned himself in.

  16. So anyone can shoot someone, claim they thought that the target is racist or a white supremacist, and then be released without charges of attempted murder. Gotcha.

    Whoever made that decision ought to be fired. By a squad, maybe. Can AG Sessions do something in this case?

    I care less about the victim in this case than the principle. As far as the victim is concerned, it’s poetic justice. But it’s possible that someone of value could have been killed, and this is a darn poor precedent.

    Not necessarily.

    They're stressing his isn't a white supremacist but not that he was also protesting Milo's talk, which you'd think they'd also note. That they didn't implies he was in favour of it and explains how he got into a conflict with the shooter.

    Classical liberals are fascists too now. There are plenty of anti-SJWs who'd also get an anti-Nazi tattoo.

    Though given he brought and discharged a gun to a campus protest, maybe he was crazy enough to see a fellow protester, notice he is white and then notice his anti-Nazi tattoo, immediately get triggered by the swastika and go all 'Aww HELL NO!!' and pop a cap in the guy without saying a word to him.

But if you're white and you're "colorblind", i.e, you believe people should be judged as individuals and not as members of racial groups, you're also a racist, because you're denying an essential part of the person of color's identity.

    If you're white and you hate rap, that's prejudice, and you're a racist.

    If you're white and you love rap, that's cultural appropriation, and you're a racist.

    I checked out their website today and they have some new "10 Days of Action/Resistance" initiative, where they are offering to send free postcards to marchers, for them to send to their senators. That is a lot of post cards, even if only 10 percent of the people who marched follow through and opt to keep going with this.

    How many people are working for this group?

    I know there is some money to be made in community organizing industry but it's not that much, this is pretty suspicious, almost like they possibly had help/funding not just from Soros, but from elements or affiliates of our own state department.

    He can watch this video of the shooting if he wants to see his friend be aggressive:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sv0l76UuMo

    At 0:09 about 3/4 to the right of the screen, just to the right of the large placard, it looks like someone in a red MAGA cap gets sucker punched and goes down to the ground. A protestor starts beating on him with a pole. I think the shooter (in a bright yellow baseball cap) tries to get in to rescue red cap on the ground, or at least moves that way, and then retreats.

    The shooter is in a yellow cap. The shootee (another guy) jumps him at 0:16. It looks like there are 2-3 people going after yellow cap. Yellow cap fires, which is pretty dicey in a crowd like that, but he pulls it off.

    There will probably be more video. I’ll provisionally say it was a good shoot. Hitting a guy with a pole is deadly force. There’s a disparity of force situation; yellow cap was in a riot, outnumbered, and could reasonably believe his life was in danger.

    Unlike you, I'm quite fond if the Zionist enterprise but I neither know nor care how Milo falls out on the subject. It is so abhorrent to see a bunch of people claiming to be alt right sucking this flamboyant chemically altered man's p***y.

    I had heard quite a bit about him, as have we all been forced to, but as soon as I saw a picture of his haircut I knew he was some sort of fascist or other. At the time, I didn't even know that he was of the gay fascist sort. Though it's not surprising of course, they often turn out that way.

    So I tried watching the video of his and although, of course, I like watching him trigger sjw's and he's quick on his toes with the occasional good conservative response, he comes across like an old testament abomination. That face, that hair, those coats, those pearls - .

    Now, I don't mind that sort of thing in general, and I also think it would be awesome if men could wear color without being guessed as gay.

    But obviously, this flaming homosexual, does not get that message across. What he gets across is that the alt right movement is so desperate that they will accept as their spokesman someone who is just playing Alt.

    So far as the homosexual fasc is concerned, a couple of years ago I finally got Spencer to fire this gay guy he was paying week after week to teach men how to be men.

    Alt-right is more or less what the Trump movement is. Letting people like Spencer and Milo run to the front and tell everyone that they are representing it is not only bad PR but it doesn't feel great to be marching to their colors either.

    Hitting with a nightstick is deadly force. I was trained on the PR-24 Side Handle Baton many many years ago. We were forbidden from using any blows to the head or spine. Even blows to the buttocks were banned since the spine terminates there.

    One thing we were taught was that if someone grabbed the baton and you were unable to get it back, to let them have it and push back at the same time. Then draw your pistol and shoot them since they are now armed with a deadly weapon.

You can't take what was deemed a deadly force assault in this case with video evidence as any guide to what would happen to you if you shot someone dead in a confrontation, whereby you sustained no injuries.

    In the past men put up with crappy jobs because it gave them status in their families and the community; they were providers. Now they don't have jobs and they don't have status. Women may have the jobs, but they don't have status because women's status is tied usually to physical attractiveness when young and their position in a family when they get older.

    My guess is that the suspect in this case was able to present some credible evidence that the shooting was in self-defense. In those cases, the police might release them but continue the investigation and arrest later if they disprove the self-defense claim.

    He was confident no one else on the other side had a gun, that is why he fired. Hitting a guy with a pole (or nightstick) isn't deadly force, and that someone on the same side as the person you shoot did that to someone on your side is largely irrelevant if person you shoot proves you used deadly force by dying of it.

    Lemme get this how you see it–a guy who is 6-5, 280, starts hitting you with a nightstick and you cannot reply with deadly force?? just how big a dumbass chode are you?

    "said he’s never seen his friend be aggressive."

    He can watch this video of the shooting if he wants to see his friend be aggressive:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sv0l76UuMo

    At 0:09 about 3/4 to the right of the screen, just to the right of the large placard, it looks like someone in a red MAGA cap gets sucker punched and goes down to the ground. A protestor starts beating on him with a pole. I think the shooter (in a bright yellow baseball cap) tries to get in to rescue red cap on the ground, or at least moves that way, and then retreats.

    The shooter is in a yellow cap. The shootee (another guy) jumps him at 0:16. It looks like there are 2-3 people going after yellow cap. Yellow cap fires, which is pretty dicey in a crowd like that, but he pulls it off.

    There will probably be more video. I'll provisionally say it was a good shoot. Hitting a guy with a pole is deadly force. There's a disparity of force situation; yellow cap was in a riot, outnumbered, and could reasonably believe his life was in danger.

    I can’t tell what the heck is going on in that video.

    Of course it is. Have you not been paying attention? It’s also against the law to openly vote for the wrong candidate.

    Yes. If you’re white, and you believe in racial differences, you’re a racist. But if you’re white and you’re “colorblind”, i.e, you believe people should be judged as individuals and not as members of racial groups, you’re also a racist, because you’re denying an essential part of the person of color’s identity.

    If you’re white and you hate rap, that’s prejudice, and you’re a racist.

    If you’re white and you love rap, that’s cultural appropriation, and you’re a racist.

    If you’re white and move away from a black neighborhood, that’s white flight, and you’re a racist.

    If you’re white and move into a black neighborhood, that’s gentrification, and you’re a racist.

    I’m not really a fan of Milo either. I especially dislike the way he constantly talks about his casual sex, especially emphasizing his attraction to black men. I understand he’s trying to prove he’s not a racist and that as a gay man it’s harder for the Left to attack him, but I still think it’s inappropriate and off-putting.

  83. OT – Sorry to be off-topic but with all the talk about parade attendance I figured I would throw out my 2 cents. The MSM is gleefully reporting that Trump’s inauguration was dwarfed by Obama’s. And that even the pink march yesterday outdrew Friday’s inaugural.

    Well it is no surprise democrats can draw large urban crowds given that is where their base lives. Consider:

    1) DC metro area has over 6 million people.

    2) Baltimore metro area has almost 3 million.

    3) Hillary won over 90 percent of the DC vote. The surrounding counties are the party of big government. Baltimore is a democrat stronghold too.

    4) So we have almost 9 million people within easy driving distance of the capital, who are disproportionately democrat and black.

    As a comparison the Kansas City Royals drew around 800K for their November 2015 victory parade from a metro area of about 2 million. Is it any wonder that Obama could draw a huge crowd in DC given the demographics?

    Is there any confusion as to why it might be hard for Trump to draw similar crowds in such an area?

    For Trump supporters to attend they would have had to spend a lot of money of travel and lodging in addition to being subjected to potential violence.

    You will also note that the MSM is reporting how the pink parades occurred all over the nation even in states Trump won. Of course even in Trump states, Hillary carried the majority of the urban vote.

    The bottom line is Trump/GOP supporters are spread out over vast areas while democrats are highly concentrated. So there is little wonder why they would have the advantage in organizing parades in urban areas. The notion that parade sizes equals support is dubious at best.

    A lot of people who might have considered attending the Trump inauguration figured it would be a big hassle, plus there would probably be leftists blocking traffic, tying up mass transit, and throwing things, so why bother.

    It's been my impression that conservatives just aren't into mass demonstrations the way leftists are. They clearly fill some important emotional need for leftists. Admittedly, conservatives turned out for Trump's political rallies, the Tea Party demonstration, gun rights and anti-abortion demonstrations, but I still don't think it means the same to them as it does to leftists. The leftwing white women on Facebook are gushing about yesterday's demonstrations like it was some significant triumph. But we just had an election and the majority of white women voted for Trump, so what do they expect to happen?

    It's like these marches organized in Israel where liberal Israeli and Palestinian mothers march together for peace. It never makes any difference, but they keep doing it. Also, the anti-violence marches we sometimes see in our black communities, which often end up erupting in gunfire.

    Classical liberals are fascists too now. There are plenty of anti-SJWs who’d also get an anti-Nazi tattoo.

    Though given he brought and discharged a gun to a campus protest, maybe he was crazy enough to see a fellow protester, notice he is white and then notice his anti-Nazi tattoo, immediately get triggered by the swastika and go all ‘Aww HELL NO!!’ and pop a cap in the guy without saying a word to him.

    My guess is that the suspect in this case was able to present some credible evidence that the shooting was in self-defense. In those cases, the police might release them but continue the investigation and arrest later if they disprove the self-defense claim. Washington is considered a "Stand Your Ground" self-defense state. Also, it probably didn't hurt that the suspect turned himself in.

    IWW AND GDC MEMBER SHOT IN SEATTLE MEDICAL FUNDRAISER
    Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

    On the evening of Friday, January 20th, a comrade of ours was shot in the stomach in the most public place on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle – a place called “Red Square” for the color of its bricks rather than its politics.

    This Fellow Worker (what members of the IWW call ourselves) and Defender (for GDC members) is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the General Defense Committee of the IWW. He’s currently in critical condition at Harborview Hospital in Seattle. They have a Level One Trauma center, so it’s likely he is receiving the best quality care available, for which we are deeply grateful.

    How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort. Will others are willing step up and replace his effort while he heals? Our response will help determine that.

    There is a limited amount of time for us to make clear to the world what is clear to us: we are under armed attack. The fascist right knows where to find us – protests such as anti-Donald Trump events, or actions against police brutality. In the Twin Cities, the trial has just begun of Allen Scarsella, one of the white supremacists who came to the Fourth Precinct in Minneapolis in November, 2015 and opened fire, shooting multiple people.

    We don’t have confirmation that the person who shot our comrade was a counter-protester angry at those protesting Milo’s hateful white nationalist misogyny. We do know that he turned himself into the police several hours later, claiming ‘self-defense.’ This, of course, is exactly what Scarsella did as well.

    Our friend will have enormous hospital bills and undoubtedly some legal costs as well. There will be a significant loss of income. Let’s raise him so much that he won’t have to worry about that angle of things. Please give. All money will be controlled directly by them and their partner; none will go to any other cause, excepting any fees associated with the fundraising service used.
    Please don’t just give; please tell your friends and families and organizations to give. That may sound daunting, but here’s why they should:

    This isn’t just about one guy. Your friends and families know that the situation has changed dramatically. They know that things are changing fast, and have heard the word fascism a lot since Trump was elected. They may even suspect that the breakneck pace of media revelations and executive decisions is intended to distract them and make them feel helpless.

    This is about protecting those who have already been putting themselves on the line protecting us. Who have been organizing for us and got there even before Donald Trump was elected. This is about protecting them. This is about emboldening OUR side to organized to protect ourselves, rather than simply beg for protection from fascists and racists. Some of whom are now in political power.

    We need to ensure widespread support for them, and we need to do it in the name of organized anti-fascism. We must demonstrate that no matter our own political analysis or identity – progressive, liberal, leftist, radical, etc. – we support anti-fascism, and we support antifascists. We will not leave our own behind. We will support antifascist efforts, most of all because they are needed more than ever, and not supporting them at this crucial point would be a disaster.
    Thank you for reading all the way to the end. It’s hard to hear that a comrade has been shot. We may not have expressed everything in the most organized or best way above, and if that is the case, please accept our apologies.

    We hope you will consider making a contribution, and perhaps writing letters or calling to the President of the University of Washington and expressing support for the victim of the shooting and the protesters, and criticism of the UW administration for permitting an event they knew was going to promote violence against minority groups. Now they’ve gotten what they should have known was coming. Call or write the County Attorney and demand aggressive prosecution. Call Seattle City Councilors and ask them to issue a public statement of condemnation of violent attacks on anti-racist and antifascist protesters, and support of our Fellow Worker.

So when they find out that all jobs frankly kind of suck, everybody forms hierarchies, everybody has to compete, and successful men don't enjoy their company, what then?

    If I may be permitted to add a personal note here, I would just like to say that I am no fan of Milo Yiannopoulos, and I'm sick and tired of Breitbart treating every incident of this man's histrionic life as if it were BREAKING NEWS! Day after day Breitbart subjects its readers to a barrage of headlines like "Milo banned from Twitter," "Milo barred from here," Milo heckled there," etc., all in 24-point blinking lavender font. What is the point of all this? Is this supposed to be the new face of "conservative" journalism---the gonzo escapades of a gay drama queen?

    I find Milo to be needlessly provocative and often wrong in what he writes and says. I don't visit Breitbart nearly as much as I once did, and Milo is not the only reason. I also find their relentlessly pro-Israel stance rather disappointing, but Milo in particular is not the face of any Alt-Right movement I care to be associated with, and I'm not surprised that his flamboyant rallies ended up setting off some violence.

    “What is the point of all this? Is this supposed to be the new face of “conservative” journalism—the gonzo escapades of a gay drama queen”

My conservatism is of the sort that long predates the US Constitution. I don't acknowledge the existence of a right to speak error or to believe heresy. You Constitutionalists are nothing but yesterday's Lefties, so stuff it.

    Keyboard warrior? Listen dude, you don't know anything about me or my life, and I don't owe you an account of it. It's very impolite of you to ask such questions. Who are you to insinuate that others are not living up to your standards of political activism? That's something a totalitarian Leftist would do. You're acting like a Bolshevist goon, so knock it off. All I've done is announce my disapproval of what Milo has said and done in public. There is nothing wrong with that.

    Moving on, others have mentioned above that Milo's value consists in "exposing the Left as authoritarian." To this I can only say that anybody who still needs the benefit of such exposure is hopelessly behind the curve. The Left has been authoritarian since its very inception; that is its one essential characteristic. Not that that is what's wrong with the Left per se, for 'authoritarian' does not equal 'illegitimate'. Evidently the implied premise in that argument is that once the Left is exposed as authoritarian, they will lose whatever legitimacy they once possessed. This is false. They really don't care if you expose them, because they fully intend to use any means necessary to accomplish their ends---force, fraud, and brutality not excepted.

    Someone else also stated that he would support a serial killer if such a one could make SJW's heads explode like Milo does. Sir, your priorities are utterly out of whack. Apart from that being a rather tacky and bizarre way of formulating your statement, there is also the fact that your desideratum is simply improper. Watching SJW's heads explode is not the point. This isn't about entertainment, or winning debates, or the satisfaction of vain ambitions. It is existential; it's about having an identity, a country, and a religion. It's about our very survival as a people.

    It's odd that you haven't posted yet about the women's march thing, which as stupid as it might be, was the biggest protest in American history. Presumably, you're disappointed that it didn't turn out to be just a bunch of angry black women or something, so it doesn't really go with the narrative you'd been pursuing.

    The marches seemed suspiciously put-together for something that was presumably only conceptualized after the results came in November.

    Also all those pink hats- how were they produced en masse in such a short period of time? There were thousands of those hats, I find it difficult to believe they were all ordered and hand-knitted in the past 2 months. Where were they being made? Who paid for them to be made?

    I checked out their website today and they have some new “10 Days of Action/Resistance” initiative, where they are offering to send free postcards to marchers, for them to send to their senators. That is a lot of post cards, even if only 10 percent of the people who marched follow through and opt to keep going with this.

    How many people are working for this group?

    I know there is some money to be made in community organizing industry but it’s not that much, this is pretty suspicious, almost like they possibly had help/funding not just from Soros, but from elements or affiliates of our own state department.

    The hats are very, very, very easy to knit. Cast on enough stitches to go round the head, work two by two ribbing for four inches, knit four inches stockinette, and turn the whole thing inside out and do a three needle bindoff. If you don't knit, that makes no sense to you, but it's something a beginning knitter who has been doing it a month could knock together. Someone who only knew the most basic stitches from childhood could make one. They are very, very simple. I'm extremely fast and could do one in bulky weight yarn in an hour. A slow knitter could do one in three, or an evening's knitting. It wouldn't be the kind of fabric I'd want for a hat to wear all winter, but for a showy one off, sure. Crochet makes fabric at about twice the speed of knitting and people were crocheting then too. Do them in polar fleece and sew hats and it would be reasonable to knock ten crude ones out in an hour for a halfway competent home seamstress.

    Those stupid hats have absolutely taken over the largest knitting social network in the last couple months. It's been awful because the damn virtue signaling hats are everywhere, but I'd be willing to believe that they were mostly hand made. There were people who were spending al their discretionary money on hot pink yarn to make them and cranking out dozens of them and giving them to friends who were marching, or mailing them to people who were collecting. The women doing it, who from what I could tell, were mostly just inspired by other social media virtue signalers were knitting right up to the last minute, and a number of prominent designers were releasing free patterns for them. I estimate that I could have easily done sixty or so myself, if I'd been so inclined. My hunch is that they are mostly being genuinely home produced, but I could be way off base. As it is, I'll be glad when the stupid things disappear from Ravelry entirely.
  115. I checked out the video posted on the first mention here of the event. After watching closely a number of times, it looks like the shooter went in to help a Trump supporter (possibly the friend alongside whom he turned himself in), got attacked by the bald anarchist, and then after being pummeled for a few seconds shot him.

    Here’s a high-quality video on Reddit (turn up to 1080px and watch on full screen):

    https://www.reddit.com/r/SeattleWA/comments/5pac0u/video_of_uw_milo_event_shooting_watch_the_asian/

    Focus first on the man on the left who gets his red hat ripped off and is attacked when he tries to retrieve it. Next, The Man in the Yellow Hat walks toward him, evidently to protect his friend from the assault. He may already have drawn the weapon by this point. He is then suddenly bum rushed by the shootee, who begins wildly attacking him. Another anarchist or two seem to be joining in, at which point The Man in the Yellow Hat regains his balance, points his gun to his right at his initial attacker and fires. Bald anarchist stumbles back and goes down, other attacking anarchists cease their attack and he moves back to safety.

    According to a number of accounts, the anarchist was armed with a knife and brass knuckles, and may have been one of the same that attacked the boy in front of his father. Seems attacking smaller people (like TMITYH) may be his MO.

    Of course the Seattle media is downplaying the violent nature of Seattle’s hooligan pets, and many commenters are blaming the guy for not just taking a beating and being a good sport about the anarchists having a little fun. It’s unfair, they think, to defend yourself with a gun from a violent gang beatdown.

    In addition, Richard Spencer was violently attacked over the weekend, and mainstream liberals (like The Messiah’s speechwriter Jon Favreau) are laughing about it.

    As the Alt-Right makes cultural and political gains (i.e,. as such views become normalized), we will see the Left proportionally increase their unprovoked violence against the Alt-Right, with the MSM legitimizing it.

    After all, if you could go back in time and kill the infant Hitler, wouldn’t you do it? Wouldn't it be a moral duty?

    Their response to being called on their love of violence against a fellow American is to point and sputter – “but we we we went to war against the Nazis! There’s no difference”.

    "It exposes the progressive left as authoritarians, which also happens to be enormous fun."

    That might be true. I keep trying to see what others see in Milo, and I haven't seen it yet. He presents himself as a promiscuous man and as one apparently unconcerned with the social costs of promiscuity, such as STDs and pregnancies. As someone who is generally pretty cautious, I find his promiscuity disturbing. Our culture is degenerate enough.

    That’s true, but you’ve got to think of what the left sees in him, not what you see. To you his “lifestyle” is gross, whereas in their minds it flips intersectionality switches. Which is why you see headlines declaring, “Why Milo Isn’t a Real Gay.”

    Unlike you, I’m quite fond if the Zionist enterprise but I neither know nor care how Milo falls out on the subject. It is so abhorrent to see a bunch of people claiming to be alt right sucking this flamboyant chemically altered man’s p***y.

    I had heard quite a bit about him, as have we all been forced to, but as soon as I saw a picture of his haircut I knew he was some sort of fascist or other. At the time, I didn’t even know that he was of the gay fascist sort. Though it’s not surprising of course, they often turn out that way.

    So I tried watching the video of his and although, of course, I like watching him trigger sjw’s and he’s quick on his toes with the occasional good conservative response, he comes across like an old testament abomination. That face, that hair, those coats, those pearls – .

    Now, I don’t mind that sort of thing in general, and I also think it would be awesome if men could wear color without being guessed as gay.

    But obviously, this flaming homosexual, does not get that message across. What he gets across is that the alt right movement is so desperate that they will accept as their spokesman someone who is just playing Alt.

    So far as the homosexual fasc is concerned, a couple of years ago I finally got Spencer to fire this gay guy he was paying week after week to teach men how to be men.

    Alt-right is more or less what the Trump movement is. Letting people like Spencer and Milo run to the front and tell everyone that they are representing it is not only bad PR but it doesn’t feel great to be marching to their colors either.

He is upfront about not being alt-right. He gets lumped in with the rest of the anti-PC internet hooligans, but I don't see the big deal about that. We can let him be whatever he wants, so long as he's firing on the other side.

    And so long as actual alt-righters don't confuse him for one of them. Which I don't see happening. It's not bad PR to make leftists look foolish, which is what Milo does, even if were to make himself look foolish in the process, which he sometimes does.

    Unlike you, I'm quite fond if the Zionist enterprise but I neither know nor care how Milo falls out on the subject. It is so abhorrent to see a bunch of people claiming to be alt right sucking this flamboyant chemically altered man's p***y.

    I had heard quite a bit about him, as have we all been forced to, but as soon as I saw a picture of his haircut I knew he was some sort of fascist or other. At the time, I didn't even know that he was of the gay fascist sort. Though it's not surprising of course, they often turn out that way.

    So I tried watching the video of his and although, of course, I like watching him trigger sjw's and he's quick on his toes with the occasional good conservative response, he comes across like an old testament abomination. That face, that hair, those coats, those pearls - .

    Now, I don't mind that sort of thing in general, and I also think it would be awesome if men could wear color without being guessed as gay.

    But obviously, this flaming homosexual, does not get that message across. What he gets across is that the alt right movement is so desperate that they will accept as their spokesman someone who is just playing Alt.

    So far as the homosexual fasc is concerned, a couple of years ago I finally got Spencer to fire this gay guy he was paying week after week to teach men how to be men.

    Alt-right is more or less what the Trump movement is. Letting people like Spencer and Milo run to the front and tell everyone that they are representing it is not only bad PR but it doesn't feel great to be marching to their colors either.

    Spencer does that (not very successfully; I’ve visited alt-right/red-pilled sites regularly for years and had no idea who he was until that Nazi-salute kerfuffle recently), but Milo doesn’t. He is upfront about not being alt-right. He gets lumped in with the rest of the anti-PC internet hooligans, but I don’t see the big deal about that. We can let him be whatever he wants, so long as he’s firing on the other side.

    And so long as actual alt-righters don’t confuse him for one of them. Which I don’t see happening. It’s not bad PR to make leftists look foolish, which is what Milo does, even if were to make himself look foolish in the process, which he sometimes does.

Note the red crosses and the protective gear. This was organized and funded "direct action". Those "medics" would not have helped an injured Trump/Milo supporter.

    Whatever the motives and politics of the shooter, he has hit on the perfect legal defense for Seattle. From now on his best move is to shut up and let his lawyer do the talking.

    Milo humiliates the left, and makes them seem like dour faced killjoys. He is entertaining to watch and he destroys SJW who call him 'raccissts'. Some SJW are even saying he can't be gay because of his views (much like Peter Theil was declared to be 'a straight white male' by the advocate because of his support for Trump.

    The left is unhinged.

    Agree. He has a razor wit and he’s good on his feet. He’s in the same league as Ann Coulter (and I believe that that’s a league of their own). The left wouldn’t hate him so much, if he were some fat middle-aged guy with a slow Texas drawl. Milo is from and of their world, by temperament, education and style, and he shows them that such a person — someone like them — can arrive at some shockingly variant conclusions about the great issues of the day.

    I persuaded a moderate leftist to watch some Milo Youtube clips with me the other day. Going into that, my leftist friend knew nothing about Milo except that he’s a horrible “alt-right” guy with “ties to Breitbart”. After the videos, he was stunned. I expect to see him here at iSteve any day now (though of course he’ll never admit it and I’ll have no way to be sure)!

    Milo wouldn't be the face of any alt-right movement, because he isn't alt-right (except in the sense that he's not a leftist and isn't part of the mainstream right) and doesn't claim to be. He gets so much play because he's effective. Leftists don't know what to do with him, and he jumps and dances all over their PC boundaries.

    Trump is often wrong and needlessly provocative (he's also not alt-right), but I don't care, because he's a winner, at least so far. Drop him and Milo as soon as the left starts beating them, if ever.

    That's my take on it. The fact that the shooting target was a Wobbly, and the appearances and behavior of each, make it look like this was probably a justifiable shooting. Washington state has fairly liberal gun laws – generally the most liberal of any West Coast state – including being one of the few states that has no training requirements for getting a carry permit, and a large number of people even in Seattle carry. I don't imagine if the shooter had been carrying illegally and shot somebody, he would have been released without charge. It's unlikely that a 50-something Asian male wearing a goofy yellow hat like that who has a gun permit and who turns himself into the police after a shooting would be an SJW.

    OT - Sorry to be off-topic but with all the talk about parade attendance I figured I would throw out my 2 cents. The MSM is gleefully reporting that Trump's inauguration was dwarfed by Obama's. And that even the pink march yesterday outdrew Friday's inaugural.

    Well it is no surprise democrats can draw large urban crowds given that is where their base lives. Consider:

    1) DC metro area has over 6 million people.

    2) Baltimore metro area has almost 3 million.

    3) Hillary won over 90 percent of the DC vote. The surrounding counties are the party of big government. Baltimore is a democrat stronghold too.

    4) So we have almost 9 million people within easy driving distance of the capital, who are disproportionately democrat and black.

    As a comparison the Kansas City Royals drew around 800K for their November 2015 victory parade from a metro area of about 2 million. Is it any wonder that Obama could draw a huge crowd in DC given the demographics?

    Is there any confusion as to why it might be hard for Trump to draw similar crowds in such an area?

    For Trump supporters to attend they would have had to spend a lot of money of travel and lodging in addition to being subjected to potential violence.

    You will also note that the MSM is reporting how the pink parades occurred all over the nation even in states Trump won. Of course even in Trump states, Hillary carried the majority of the urban vote.

    The bottom line is Trump/GOP supporters are spread out over vast areas while democrats are highly concentrated. So there is little wonder why they would have the advantage in organizing parades in urban areas. The notion that parade sizes equals support is dubious at best.

    A lot of people who might have considered attending the Trump inauguration figured it would be a big hassle, plus there would probably be leftists blocking traffic, tying up mass transit, and throwing things, so why bother.

    It’s been my impression that conservatives just aren’t into mass demonstrations the way leftists are. They clearly fill some important emotional need for leftists. Admittedly, conservatives turned out for Trump’s political rallies, the Tea Party demonstration, gun rights and anti-abortion demonstrations, but I still don’t think it means the same to them as it does to leftists. The leftwing white women on Facebook are gushing about yesterday’s demonstrations like it was some significant triumph. But we just had an election and the majority of white women voted for Trump, so what do they expect to happen?

    It’s like these marches organized in Israel where liberal Israeli and Palestinian mothers march together for peace. It never makes any difference, but they keep doing it. Also, the anti-violence marches we sometimes see in our black communities, which often end up erupting in gunfire.

Then law enforcement and especially media will be able to determine quickly whether or not we deserve to die.

There are so many different cultures in Canada; we face the challenges of acceptance and inclusion every day.

    The fact that you side with the totalitarian anti-1st amendment Left over Milo means you are a trillion times less Conservative than Milo is.


    "I find Milo to be needlessly provocative and often wrong in what he writes and says."

    The Left also agrees with you that Milo is often wrong in what he writes and says.

    "but Milo in particular is not the face of any Alt-Right movement I care to be associated with,"

    What the hell are you doing to fight whichever political cause you believe in besides being a keyboard warrior?

    The fact that you side with the totalitarian anti-1st amendment Left over Milo means you are a trillion times less Conservative than Milo is.

    That isn’t a fact, it’s a fiction you just made up. Who’s siding with anybody here? And don’t talk to me about the 1st Amendment. My conservatism is of the sort that long predates the US Constitution. I don’t acknowledge the existence of a right to speak error or to believe heresy. You Constitutionalists are nothing but yesterday’s Lefties, so stuff it.

    What the hell are you doing to fight whichever political cause you believe in besides being a keyboard warrior?

    Keyboard warrior? Listen dude, you don’t know anything about me or my life, and I don’t owe you an account of it. It’s very impolite of you to ask such questions. Who are you to insinuate that others are not living up to your standards of political activism? That’s something a totalitarian Leftist would do. You’re acting like a Bolshevist goon, so knock it off. All I’ve done is announce my disapproval of what Milo has said and done in public. There is nothing wrong with that.

    Moving on, others have mentioned above that Milo’s value consists in “exposing the Left as authoritarian.” To this I can only say that anybody who still needs the benefit of such exposure is hopelessly behind the curve. The Left has been authoritarian since its very inception; that is its one essential characteristic. Not that that is what’s wrong with the Left per se, for ‘authoritarian’ does not equal ‘illegitimate’. Evidently the implied premise in that argument is that once the Left is exposed as authoritarian, they will lose whatever legitimacy they once possessed. This is false. They really don’t care if you expose them, because they fully intend to use any means necessary to accomplish their ends—force, fraud, and brutality not excepted.

    Someone else also stated that he would support a serial killer if such a one could make SJW’s heads explode like Milo does. Sir, your priorities are utterly out of whack. Apart from that being a rather tacky and bizarre way of formulating your statement, there is also the fact that your desideratum is simply improper. Watching SJW’s heads explode is not the point. This isn’t about entertainment, or winning debates, or the satisfaction of vain ambitions. It is existential; it’s about having an identity, a country, and a religion. It’s about our very survival as a people.

    Most of the public is hopelessly behind the curve. There are widely-held myths that the left is open, tolerant, respectful of differing opinions, that they will debate ideas on the merits, and other nonsense. The media continually states that these are true, and accepting them as such is part of the left's self-image. Milo's performance art is hilarious precisely because it punctures that gasbaggery while at the same time being catnip for the media. They can't not cover him.

    The central problem that the establishment conservatives face is that the left controls the megaphone. The (modern) right been slowly and not-so-slowly losing the culture wars because of this. Trump and Milo represent alternative means of fighting lefty media dominance. The jury's still out on whether it will be effective or not, but the alternative is more of the same, so why not give it a whirl.

    While you may be fine with Catholic/Monarchical/Neoreaction authoritarianism, most of the public is not. Maybe you can organize some street theater to promote it. In the meantime it's probably to your benefit to make common cause with modern conservatives where you can while staking out your differences. The conservatives are more likely to leave you alone, while the PC progressives will make sure you don't fall into errors in thought.

    That spin would be accurate. The link provided by another poster to the IWW crowdfunding appeal for their comrade’s medical costs is essential reading:

    IWW AND GDC MEMBER SHOT IN SEATTLE MEDICAL FUNDRAISER
    Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

    On the evening of Friday, January 20th, a comrade of ours was shot in the stomach in the most public place on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle – a place called “Red Square” for the color of its bricks rather than its politics.

    This Fellow Worker (what members of the IWW call ourselves) and Defender (for GDC members) is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the General Defense Committee of the IWW. He’s currently in critical condition at Harborview Hospital in Seattle. They have a Level One Trauma center, so it’s likely he is receiving the best quality care available, for which we are deeply grateful.

    How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort. Will others are willing step up and replace his effort while he heals? Our response will help determine that.

    There is a limited amount of time for us to make clear to the world what is clear to us: we are under armed attack. The fascist right knows where to find us – protests such as anti-Donald Trump events, or actions against police brutality. In the Twin Cities, the trial has just begun of Allen Scarsella, one of the white supremacists who came to the Fourth Precinct in Minneapolis in November, 2015 and opened fire, shooting multiple people.

    We don’t have confirmation that the person who shot our comrade was a counter-protester angry at those protesting Milo’s hateful white nationalist misogyny. We do know that he turned himself into the police several hours later, claiming ‘self-defense.’ This, of course, is exactly what Scarsella did as well.

    Our friend will have enormous hospital bills and undoubtedly some legal costs as well. There will be a significant loss of income. Let’s raise him so much that he won’t have to worry about that angle of things. Please give. All money will be controlled directly by them and their partner; none will go to any other cause, excepting any fees associated with the fundraising service used.
    Please don’t just give; please tell your friends and families and organizations to give. That may sound daunting, but here’s why they should:

    This isn’t just about one guy. Your friends and families know that the situation has changed dramatically. They know that things are changing fast, and have heard the word fascism a lot since Trump was elected. They may even suspect that the breakneck pace of media revelations and executive decisions is intended to distract them and make them feel helpless.

    This is about protecting those who have already been putting themselves on the line protecting us. Who have been organizing for us and got there even before Donald Trump was elected. This is about protecting them. This is about emboldening OUR side to organized to protect ourselves, rather than simply beg for protection from fascists and racists. Some of whom are now in political power.

    We need to ensure widespread support for them, and we need to do it in the name of organized anti-fascism. We must demonstrate that no matter our own political analysis or identity – progressive, liberal, leftist, radical, etc. – we support anti-fascism, and we support antifascists. We will not leave our own behind. We will support antifascist efforts, most of all because they are needed more than ever, and not supporting them at this crucial point would be a disaster.
    Thank you for reading all the way to the end. It’s hard to hear that a comrade has been shot. We may not have expressed everything in the most organized or best way above, and if that is the case, please accept our apologies.

    We hope you will consider making a contribution, and perhaps writing letters or calling to the President of the University of Washington and expressing support for the victim of the shooting and the protesters, and criticism of the UW administration for permitting an event they knew was going to promote violence against minority groups. Now they’ve gotten what they should have known was coming. Call or write the County Attorney and demand aggressive prosecution. Call Seattle City Councilors and ask them to issue a public statement of condemnation of violent attacks on anti-racist and antifascist protesters, and support of our Fellow Worker.

    These IWW guys are really stupid. Just click around on their site and you'll see exhortations to commit criminal assault all over the place. The fact that shootee is a member of this organization would make a defense attorney's job so much easier if it comes down to a self-defense trial. On one page a wobblie is holding up a sign that says "make fascists afraid again." Naturally, they see Trump supporters as "fascists." What's the standard for acting in self-defense? Why, it's that you were "afraid," of course.

    Morons. It goes to show how much of a free pass the left has had for decades that they think they can still get away with this. It's about time the FBI dealt with these people in the same manner they've gone after other criminal gangs. Given that the anarchists have a propensity to assault LEOs, I don't think our new administration will have to provide much in the way of motivation for that. No, all they'll have to do is unleash them.

    If this administration is even half as hard on leftist criminals as the previous four have been on the equivalent on the right, these punks will be in for the shock of their lives.

    Unlike you, I'm quite fond if the Zionist enterprise but I neither know nor care how Milo falls out on the subject. It is so abhorrent to see a bunch of people claiming to be alt right sucking this flamboyant chemically altered man's p***y.

    I had heard quite a bit about him, as have we all been forced to, but as soon as I saw a picture of his haircut I knew he was some sort of fascist or other. At the time, I didn't even know that he was of the gay fascist sort. Though it's not surprising of course, they often turn out that way.

    So I tried watching the video of his and although, of course, I like watching him trigger sjw's and he's quick on his toes with the occasional good conservative response, he comes across like an old testament abomination. That face, that hair, those coats, those pearls - .

    Now, I don't mind that sort of thing in general, and I also think it would be awesome if men could wear color without being guessed as gay.

    But obviously, this flaming homosexual, does not get that message across. What he gets across is that the alt right movement is so desperate that they will accept as their spokesman someone who is just playing Alt.

    So far as the homosexual fasc is concerned, a couple of years ago I finally got Spencer to fire this gay guy he was paying week after week to teach men how to be men.

    Alt-right is more or less what the Trump movement is. Letting people like Spencer and Milo run to the front and tell everyone that they are representing it is not only bad PR but it doesn't feel great to be marching to their colors either.

    It seems to be increasingly the case that rich people don't just get involved in politics in order to get richer. They also get richer in order to get more involved in politics.
  147. There was some time ago a TV forum (now defunct) that noted that it got massive amount of posts on shows with slim viewership, while ratings leaders like NCIS got basically nothing. So all this Blac Block violence in Portlandia and various aging Hollywood sluts having a PMS meltdown mean basically nothing.

    Trump is in decent shape, since he’s the only one offering JOBS AND MONEY to the White (and non-White) working and middle class.

    A **MASSIVE** Navy build-up means immediate soaking up of underemployment and unemployment, in places I’m sure Trump will direct the manufacturing — PA, NC, Florida, MI, OH, etc. Same with an Air Force build up. Obama could not do that because of ideological handcuffs and his party being opposed to military spending that puts people to work.

    Same with the Wall, and other infrastructure. Trump is not Obama, he can simply waive various environmental impact stuff and give free passes to fracking. That will put people to work immediately.

    If you are a young White thug who wants to kick people in the face with the authorities approval, yes you’ll be Blac Block but thankfully those people are few and mostly in Portlandia, DC, NYC, and SF. That’s pretty much it. There were some in LA but their numbers were small over the weekend.

    Aging Hollywood sluts like Madonna, Ashley Judd, Chelsea Handler, Cher, and Charlize Theron might rage but what do they offer? What do almost aging Hollywood sluts like TV’s Supergirl, Scarlett Johanssen, and America Ferarra have to offer?

    Money in the pocket for ordinary working Americans? A respite from the (Pat Buchanon is 1000% correct here on this being the ONLY real issue of the 21st Century) bum-rush of the Global South into the North to get free women and welfare? A chance to avoid falling into poverty with the Global South rushing in? No it was just more White College/Professional class women raging, raging, raging that they don’t have Alpha males they were promised and have to put up with beta White males. The non-celeb women I’ve seen in the photos of the marches had various signs expressing hate hate hate of White men; but nothing on offer for working class women. Trump took 53% of White women; and that was due to a historic turnout of Working Class White women.

    Its like the popular vote. Take away California where Hillary ran up a near 70% margin (no doubt aided by illegals voting early and often) and Trump wins the popular vote. As long he delivers a job gain and wage gain to people in battleground states he’s in good shape. Yes the Dems can push Cory Booker but Trump can create mischief by pushing Keith “Get Whitey” Ellison X.

    I’m as guilty as the next person in trusting the media not to want to have egg on its face with polls, stupid me for trusting them. Force of habit I *MUST* break. Yeah a bunch of aging celeb sluts and would be cat ladies HATE HATE HATE Trump and his working class backers. So what.

    When I was a young Marine on liberty in Hamburg in 1978, there was a Soviet freighter in port at the same time.

    One evening out, me and my pals ran into a few of them and got shit-faced together. There was lots of Cold War type banter/pride, but towards the end of the evening, one of the Soviet sailors, with a lot of drunk Russian sentimentality, tells me that the East/West thing is nonsense, the big competition is going to be north/south hemispheres.

    For whatever reason, the moment made an impression. Anyhow, I heard it as early as 1978 from a drunken Soviet merchant marine sailor.

    The spin I’m getting seems to be that matey in the bandanna who got gutshot had been part of one of those Black Block type antifa crews-for-hire, steaming the crowd and twatting anyone they didn’t like the look of.

    That spin would be accurate. The link provided by another poster to the IWW crowdfunding appeal for their comrade's medical costs is essential reading:

    https://www.crowdrise.com/medical-fundraiser-for-iww-and-gdc-member-shot-in-seattle


    IWW AND GDC MEMBER SHOT IN SEATTLE MEDICAL FUNDRAISER
    Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

    On the evening of Friday, January 20th, a comrade of ours was shot in the stomach in the most public place on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle – a place called “Red Square” for the color of its bricks rather than its politics.

    This Fellow Worker (what members of the IWW call ourselves) and Defender (for GDC members) is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the General Defense Committee of the IWW. He’s currently in critical condition at Harborview Hospital in Seattle. They have a Level One Trauma center, so it’s likely he is receiving the best quality care available, for which we are deeply grateful.

    How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort. Will others are willing step up and replace his effort while he heals? Our response will help determine that.

    There is a limited amount of time for us to make clear to the world what is clear to us: we are under armed attack. The fascist right knows where to find us – protests such as anti-Donald Trump events, or actions against police brutality. In the Twin Cities, the trial has just begun of Allen Scarsella, one of the white supremacists who came to the Fourth Precinct in Minneapolis in November, 2015 and opened fire, shooting multiple people.

    We don’t have confirmation that the person who shot our comrade was a counter-protester angry at those protesting Milo’s hateful white nationalist misogyny. We do know that he turned himself into the police several hours later, claiming ‘self-defense.’ This, of course, is exactly what Scarsella did as well.

    Our friend will have enormous hospital bills and undoubtedly some legal costs as well. There will be a significant loss of income. Let’s raise him so much that he won’t have to worry about that angle of things. Please give. All money will be controlled directly by them and their partner; none will go to any other cause, excepting any fees associated with the fundraising service used.
    Please don’t just give; please tell your friends and families and organizations to give. That may sound daunting, but here’s why they should:

    This isn’t just about one guy. Your friends and families know that the situation has changed dramatically. They know that things are changing fast, and have heard the word fascism a lot since Trump was elected. They may even suspect that the breakneck pace of media revelations and executive decisions is intended to distract them and make them feel helpless.

    This is about protecting those who have already been putting themselves on the line protecting us. Who have been organizing for us and got there even before Donald Trump was elected. This is about protecting them. This is about emboldening OUR side to organized to protect ourselves, rather than simply beg for protection from fascists and racists. Some of whom are now in political power.

    We need to ensure widespread support for them, and we need to do it in the name of organized anti-fascism. We must demonstrate that no matter our own political analysis or identity – progressive, liberal, leftist, radical, etc. – we support anti-fascism, and we support antifascists. We will not leave our own behind. We will support antifascist efforts, most of all because they are needed more than ever, and not supporting them at this crucial point would be a disaster.

    The marches seemed suspiciously put-together for something that was presumably only conceptualized after the results came in November.

    Also all those pink hats- how were they produced en masse in such a short period of time? There were thousands of those hats, I find it difficult to believe they were all ordered and hand-knitted in the past 2 months. Where were they being made? Who paid for them to be made?

    I checked out their website today and they have some new "10 Days of Action/Resistance" initiative, where they are offering to send free postcards to marchers, for them to send to their senators. That is a lot of post cards, even if only 10 percent of the people who marched follow through and opt to keep going with this.

    How many people are working for this group?

    I know there is some money to be made in community organizing industry but it's not that much, this is pretty suspicious, almost like they possibly had help/funding not just from Soros, but from elements or affiliates of our own state department.

    Milo has lots of diversity pokemon points. He's a flaming homosexual, obviously, and a foreigner, though not the preferred type. (He's seemingly Jewish, too, though I don't actually know whether he is.) Therefore, he not only is allowed on the air and given room to speak, they actually listen to him and let him take over conversations. Unlike with people like Ann Coulter, for instance, who can take over the conversation because she's adept at media and a good arguer, with Milo it's not so much a fight. They let him do it, and can't help themselves. Because according to their worldview he shouldn't exist.

    Apart from what he is, there's how he comes off. He sounds and generally talks like the educated liberal class. He dresses and wears his hair like a dandy. He talks about screwing black dudes. He knows the way they think, and speaks their language, but comes to opposing conclusions. They can't handle that. It sets their heads spinning.

    They could go after him directly, like with Peter Thiel (or any number of black "oreos"), and deny him his due diversity pokemon points. That's already begun. But he's too "fabulous," as he would put it, for that to stick. At least for now.

    Eventually he'll be the Official Gay Guy of the Right, and they'll ignore him. But currently they're stuck on him as a "thing that should not be." He really shouldn't he that much of a shock, considering--aside from the general free speech issue--he's most famous for being an anti-feminist and homos don't like women. We only pretend they do because...solidarity? (Or because homos and women are often friends. But female friends all secretly hate eachother; everyone knows that.)

    I realize I didn't answer your questions directly, so here goes: the PC mind, like all minds only moreso, isn't rational and doesn't work by strict logic. But I like to think of it as operating like a computer program as regards judging people and giving them a place in their hierarchy. There are a series of switches that are answered yes or no, and the path you cut through the switches determines how much power, influence, etc. you get. If you end up with respect, you're expected to have the right political opinions. That's just the way it works.

    Milo flips the right switches on so many questions, most importantly in-your-face homosexuality. Yet he's not one of them. He's not in my gang, exactly, either. But he is the enemy of my enemy. That's not supposed to happen. There aren't supposed to be any black conservatives, either, but the left has gotten used to them by now. They're not used to Milo.

    “…a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW)”

    In my youth there was a gas station attached to a large white two-story building that had a huge black “IWW” on its side.

    Driving by, I once asked my completely apolitical father (as far as I could tell) what it stood for, and he immediately responded “International Woodsmen of Wyoming”.

    A few years later in high school I was in a car being driven by a teacher, along with a couple of other students, when the teacher drove by and asked us if we knew what IWW meant. I mindless repeated the Woodsmen of Wyoming line and got some odd looks that I couldn’t parse. Took me years to figure it out.

    Industrial Workers of the World:

    “…commonly termed “Wobblies” …founded in 1905…

    …philosophy and tactics of the IWW are described as “revolutionary industrial unionism”, with ties to both socialist and anarchist labor movements.

    …In the 1910s and early 1920s, the IWW achieved many of their short-term goals, particularly in the American West…

    …Membership… declined due to government crackdowns on radical, anarchist and socialist groups during the First Red Scare after WWI. The most decisive factor in the decline in IWW membership and influence, however, was a 1924 schism in the organization…

    …contends that all workers should be united as a social class to supplant capitalism and wage labor with industrial democracy. …known for the Wobbly Shop model of workplace democracy, in which workers elect their managers…”

    So what could be the IWW attraction to the modern young Jewish (? NOFX) guy, other than sticking it to the man? Ah…

    “…in 2015. The union has become a trailblazer in supporting sex workers in Iceland…

    ….the IWW in Iceland has taken a strong position against the Swedish model of policing sex work …has argued in favour of “organizing all workers without moral or legal judgement”….”

    Hey, all you pink hat ladies! I’m your hero! Have you heard peace can come to the entire world if we have enough crazy sex? Trust me, would I lie? Look at my tattoo!

    That’s my take on it. The fact that the shooting target was a Wobbly, and the appearances and behavior of each, make it look like this was probably a justifiable shooting. Washington state has fairly liberal gun laws – generally the most liberal of any West Coast state – including being one of the few states that has no training requirements for getting a carry permit, and a large number of people even in Seattle carry. I don’t imagine if the shooter had been carrying illegally and shot somebody, he would have been released without charge. It’s unlikely that a 50-something Asian male wearing a goofy yellow hat like that who has a gun permit and who turns himself into the police after a shooting would be an SJW.

    Good post. The Reddit video makes things a little clearer, though not definitive. Consider again the picture Steve posted of the shootee being assisted by what are obviously Black Bloc medics. Note the red crosses and the protective gear. This was organized and funded "direct action". Those "medics" would not have helped an injured Trump/Milo supporter.

    Whatever the motives and politics of the shooter, he has hit on the perfect legal defense for Seattle. From now on his best move is to shut up and let his lawyer do the talking.

    BTW my guess is that he's a Korean-American.

    From the current IWW site web page (iww.org):

    …This Fellow Worker …and Defender …is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the… General Defense Committee of the IWW…

    …we are under armed attack. The fascist right knows where to find us…”

    A picture of a poster is shown with the article, so presumably it’s legit. It has a Global Defense Committee logo (GDC) and the text reads: KEEP CALM and PUNCH NAZIS.

  161. He was confident no one else on the other side had a gun, that is why he fired. Hitting a guy with a pole (or nightstick) isn’t deadly force, and that someone on the same side as the person you shoot did that to someone on your side is largely irrelevant if person you shoot proves you used deadly force by dying of it.

    Yeah, I think I remember you. You’re the cop-hating, America-hating, 2nd Amendment-hating guy. Your opinion and a couple bucks will buy you a cup of coffee.

    Short version of how the justice system works: if you can make a reasonable case that you had a reasonable fear of death or grievous bodily harm, you will likely beat the charges. That is the way the system should work. Obviously, a pole (or nightstick) can inflict death or grievous bodily harm. The world isn’t a video game, where you get to make rulings on what is and is not a potentially deadly weapon.

    OT – Sorry to be off-topic but with all the talk about parade attendance I figured I would throw out my 2 cents. The MSM is gleefully reporting that Trump’s inauguration was dwarfed by Obama’s. And that even the pink march yesterday outdrew Friday’s inaugural.

    I have no problem simply acknowledging that Hussein had a nicer parade, and moving on. If you want to be nice, offer the kids tiny American flags, or candy, while you’re at it. You can also talk fireworks.

    If you’re talking to lefties, talk about how nice police parades usually are. Military parades, too. Pageantry = authority, and lefties openly worship authority. Might want to mention that.

    Well, although there’s no proof (yet!) that the “victim” is a White Supremacist, he might be one, so it’s better to be safe than sorry and shoot first.

    Correct me if I’m wrong here, but aren’t we roughly halfway to leftists having established that the burden of proof is on whites to prove they aren’t racist? Obviously the legal system is lagging way behind, but that’s what jury nullification is for.

    The ink is not dry:

    That thing looks like an alt-right spoof. Note the claws in the last panel. The magen david flag, that is conspicuously not an Apartheid Israel flag, was a nice touch. It kinda reminds me of our shootee’s swastika with a circle around it and slash through it tattoo, actually.

    I had heard quite a bit about him, as have we all been forced to, but as soon as I saw a picture of his haircut I knew he was some sort of fascist or other. At the time, I didn’t even know that he was of the gay fascist sort. Though it’s not surprising of course, they often turn out that way.

    Sort of like pseudo-leftist fascists (e.g., Zionists); they often turn out to be Jewish.

    Hitting with a nightstick is deadly force. I was trained on the PR-24 Side Handle Baton many many years ago. We were forbidden from using any blows to the head or spine. Even blows to the buttocks were banned since the spine terminates there.

    One thing we were taught was that if someone grabbed the baton and you were unable to get it back, to let them have it and push back at the same time. Then draw your pistol and shoot them since they are now armed with a deadly weapon.

    Say…. you know all that stuff about how America First must mean Nazi, because a group that used that name were isolationist?

    Well, about the IWW and the comrades of the world at the vanguard of the struggle:

    Industrial Workers of the World:

    “…Many IWW members opposed United States participation in World War I. The organization passed a resolution against the war at its convention in November 1916 …This echoed the view …that war represents struggles among capitalists in which the rich become richer, and the working poor all too often die at the hands of other workers…

    …An IWW newspaper, the Industrial Worker, wrote just before the U.S. declaration of war: “Capitalists of America, we will fight against you, not for you! There is not a power in the world that can make the working class fight if they refuse.”

    …the IWW’s antiwar stance made it highly unpopular. Frank Little, the IWW’s most outspoken war opponent, was lynched in Butte, Montana in August 1917, just four months after war had been declared…

    one hundred and sixty-six IWW leaders were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in Chicago for conspiring to hinder the draft, encourage desertion, and intimidate others in connection with labor disputes, under the new Espionage Act…

    They were all convicted …released on bail, Haywood fled to the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic where he remained until his death.”

    Haywood was IWW general secretary-treasurer.

    Hey! KKK! For real? Well almost:

    “…In 1917, during an incident known as the Tulsa Outrage, a group of black-robed Knights of Liberty, a short-lived faction of the Ku Klux Klan, tarred and feathered seventeen members of the IWW in Oklahoma…

    …A wave of such incitement led to vigilante mobs attacking the IWW in many places…”

    Many communists were apparently surprised when nationalism proved more powerful than worldwide worker solidarity.

    "...a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW)"

    In my youth there was a gas station attached to a large white two-story building that had a huge black "IWW" on its side.

    Driving by, I once asked my completely apolitical father (as far as I could tell) what it stood for, and he immediately responded "International Woodsmen of Wyoming".

    A few years later in high school I was in a car being driven by a teacher, along with a couple of other students, when the teacher drove by and asked us if we knew what IWW meant. I mindless repeated the Woodsmen of Wyoming line and got some odd looks that I couldn't parse. Took me years to figure it out.

    Industrial Workers of the World:


    "...commonly termed "Wobblies" ...founded in 1905...

    ...philosophy and tactics of the IWW are described as "revolutionary industrial unionism", with ties to both socialist and anarchist labor movements.

    ...In the 1910s and early 1920s, the IWW achieved many of their short-term goals, particularly in the American West...

    ...Membership... declined due to government crackdowns on radical, anarchist and socialist groups during the First Red Scare after WWI. The most decisive factor in the decline in IWW membership and influence, however, was a 1924 schism in the organization...

    ...contends that all workers should be united as a social class to supplant capitalism and wage labor with industrial democracy. ...known for the Wobbly Shop model of workplace democracy, in which workers elect their managers..."

     

    So what could be the IWW attraction to the modern young Jewish (? NOFX) guy, other than sticking it to the man? Ah...


    "...in 2015. The union has become a trailblazer in supporting sex workers in Iceland...

    ....the IWW in Iceland has taken a strong position against the Swedish model of policing sex work ...has argued in favour of "organizing all workers without moral or legal judgement"...."

     

    Hey, all you pink hat ladies! I'm your hero! Have you heard peace can come to the entire world if we have enough crazy sex? Trust me, would I lie? Look at my tattoo!

    “So what could be the IWW attraction to the modern young Jewish (? NOFX) guy, other than sticking it to the man?”

    The guy is Jewish?

    No wonder Jews are worried that many people can’t tell the difference between ‘White Privilege’ and white Jews. Or even between ‘Nazis’ and Jews.

    Interestingly enough, wasn’t one of the guys who gave the Roman salute a Jew at the NPI conference?

Unabashedly polarizing figures like Yiannopoulos and Richard Spencer and the supporters who gather to hear them speak are the perfect targets. If the subtext and rhetoric of this article is not exposed and restrained, along with similar statements openly published these days without qualms by respectable people, it will provoke the snowball effect of violence that authoritarian leftists salivate over.

    “The ultimate dream of these leftists is to legitimize violence against dissent. ”

    The best example of what the left wants to do to dissent once it gains complete power is Cambodia under Pol Pot. Nothing less than the torture and murder of all dissenters, real or imagined.

    A lot of young guys are just violent and aggressive. And some have thug personality. They have destructive personalities, esp if from messed-up families.

    If they were honest, they would just join street gangs and become soccer hooligans or some such.

    But some wanna be morally justified in their thuggery, so they gravitate to some pet cause. Or, they come under the influence of ideology under some crazy entertainment. Suppose someone goes to a punk bar for the music and fun but ends up absorbing ideology since the performers sing about ‘anarchy’ and ‘rebellion against the establishment’.

    Some ideologues turn to violence because they find no other way. It’s like Strelnikov in DOCTOR ZHIVAGO. Violence followed ideology.
    But some people just like violence and thuggery, and ideology is tagged on later as justification.

    Leftism has ‘moral’ advantage over rightism because it is more utopian. Utopianism may be stupid, but it is more idealistic whereas rightism is more realistic and tribalist.

    The punk scene is confused because it revels in animal thug instinct but also pretends to be about the Better Future.

    What patriots ought to stress is that Right and Left need not be enemies or opposite. They are complementary, like left jab and right across in a boxer.
    This is Trumpism at its best. It is about Social-Nationalism. It is rightist in its nationalist themes of borders, security, and order. It is leftist in its concern for workers and lower middle class(and middle class sinking into lower middle class) and the forgotten men in rust belt towns.
    Trumpism says nationalism is best for sensible leftism. If we want to protect American Workers, we must protect them from ravages of global finance and global invasion(that lowers wages).

    I think one of the reason why the Progs are so angry is because, deep down inside, they know they lost the CLASS theme.

    Just look at all the women in DC yesterday. What are their themes? My pussy! We have fat ugly broads with tattoos fantasizing that Trump is gonna grab their pussies.

    Anyway, since Trumpism fused rightism and leftism, patriots should stop calling the enemy the ‘left’. Both left and right belong to the patriots. What is called ‘left’ no longer is. It’s just Prog Glob nonsense. It’s PC gibberish.

    Liberals are now Gibberals.

    These IWW guys are really stupid. Just click around on their site and you'll see exhortations to commit criminal assault all over the place. The fact that shootee is a member of this organization would make a defense attorney's job so much easier if it comes down to a self-defense trial. On one page a wobblie is holding up a sign that says "make fascists afraid again." Naturally, they see Trump supporters as "fascists." What's the standard for acting in self-defense? Why, it's that you were "afraid," of course.

    Morons. It goes to show how much of a free pass the left has had for decades that they think they can still get away with this. It's about time the FBI dealt with these people in the same manner they've gone after other criminal gangs. Given that the anarchists have a propensity to assault LEOs, I don't think our new administration will have to provide much in the way of motivation for that. No, all they'll have to do is unleash them.

    If this administration is even half as hard on leftist criminals as the previous four have been on the equivalent on the right, these punks will be in for the shock of their lives.

    When I was a young Marine on liberty in Hamburg in 1978, there was a Soviet freighter in port at the same time.

    One evening out, me and my pals ran into a few of them and got shit-faced together. There was lots of Cold War type banter/pride, but towards the end of the evening, one of the Soviet sailors, with a lot of drunk Russian sentimentality, tells me that the East/West thing is nonsense, the big competition is going to be north/south hemispheres.

    If by permissive you mean that any sane, non-felon can apply for and get one, then the answer is “Yes”. No test required. Just fingerprints. At least that was true 10 years ago when I got mine.

    Well it is no surprise democrats can draw large urban crowds given that is where their base lives. Consider:

    1) DC metro area has over 6 million people.

    2) Baltimore metro area has almost 3 million.

    3) Hillary won over 90 percent of the DC vote. The surrounding counties are the party of big government. Baltimore is a democrat stronghold too.

    4) So we have almost 9 million people within easy driving distance of the capital, who are disproportionately democrat and black.

    As a comparison the Kansas City Royals drew around 800K for their November 2015 victory parade from a metro area of about 2 million. Is it any wonder that Obama could draw a huge crowd in DC given the demographics?

    Is there any confusion as to why it might be hard for Trump to draw similar crowds in such an area?

    For Trump supporters to attend they would have had to spend a lot of money of travel and lodging in addition to being subjected to potential violence.

    You will also note that the MSM is reporting how the pink parades occurred all over the nation even in states Trump won. Of course even in Trump states, Hillary carried the majority of the urban vote.

    The bottom line is Trump/GOP supporters are spread out over vast areas while democrats are highly concentrated. So there is little wonder why they would have the advantage in organizing parades in urban areas. The notion that parade sizes equals support is dubious at best.

    Moving on, others have mentioned above that Milo's value consists in "exposing the Left as authoritarian." To this I can only say that anybody who still needs the benefit of such exposure is hopelessly behind the curve. The Left has been authoritarian since its very inception; that is its one essential characteristic. Not that that is what's wrong with the Left per se, for 'authoritarian' does not equal 'illegitimate'. Evidently the implied premise in that argument is that once the Left is exposed as authoritarian, they will lose whatever legitimacy they once possessed. This is false. They really don't care if you expose them, because they fully intend to use any means necessary to accomplish their ends---force, fraud, and brutality not excepted.

    Someone else also stated that he would support a serial killer if such a one could make SJW's heads explode like Milo does. Sir, your priorities are utterly out of whack. Apart from that being a rather tacky and bizarre way of formulating your statement, there is also the fact that your desideratum is simply improper. Watching SJW's heads explode is not the point. This isn't about entertainment, or winning debates, or the satisfaction of vain ambitions. It is existential; it's about having an identity, a country, and a religion. It's about our very survival as a people.

    Most of the public is hopelessly behind the curve. There are widely-held myths that the left is open, tolerant, respectful of differing opinions, that they will debate ideas on the merits, and other nonsense. The media continually states that these are true, and accepting them as such is part of the left’s self-image. Milo’s performance art is hilarious precisely because it punctures that gasbaggery while at the same time being catnip for the media. They can’t not cover him.

    The central problem that the establishment conservatives face is that the left controls the megaphone. The (modern) right been slowly and not-so-slowly losing the culture wars because of this. Trump and Milo represent alternative means of fighting lefty media dominance. The jury’s still out on whether it will be effective or not, but the alternative is more of the same, so why not give it a whirl.

    While you may be fine with Catholic/Monarchical/Neoreaction authoritarianism, most of the public is not. Maybe you can organize some street theater to promote it. In the meantime it’s probably to your benefit to make common cause with modern conservatives where you can while staking out your differences. The conservatives are more likely to leave you alone, while the PC progressives will make sure you don’t fall into errors in thought.

    The marches seemed suspiciously put-together for something that was presumably only conceptualized after the results came in November.

    Also all those pink hats- how were they produced en masse in such a short period of time? There were thousands of those hats, I find it difficult to believe they were all ordered and hand-knitted in the past 2 months. Where were they being made? Who paid for them to be made?

    I checked out their website today and they have some new "10 Days of Action/Resistance" initiative, where they are offering to send free postcards to marchers, for them to send to their senators. That is a lot of post cards, even if only 10 percent of the people who marched follow through and opt to keep going with this.

    How many people are working for this group?

    I know there is some money to be made in community organizing industry but it's not that much, this is pretty suspicious, almost like they possibly had help/funding not just from Soros, but from elements or affiliates of our own state department.

    The hats are very, very, very easy to knit. Cast on enough stitches to go round the head, work two by two ribbing for four inches, knit four inches stockinette, and turn the whole thing inside out and do a three needle bindoff. If you don’t knit, that makes no sense to you, but it’s something a beginning knitter who has been doing it a month could knock together. Someone who only knew the most basic stitches from childhood could make one. They are very, very simple. I’m extremely fast and could do one in bulky weight yarn in an hour. A slow knitter could do one in three, or an evening’s knitting. It wouldn’t be the kind of fabric I’d want for a hat to wear all winter, but for a showy one off, sure. Crochet makes fabric at about twice the speed of knitting and people were crocheting then too. Do them in polar fleece and sew hats and it would be reasonable to knock ten crude ones out in an hour for a halfway competent home seamstress.

    Those stupid hats have absolutely taken over the largest knitting social network in the last couple months. It’s been awful because the damn virtue signaling hats are everywhere, but I’d be willing to believe that they were mostly hand made. There were people who were spending al their discretionary money on hot pink yarn to make them and cranking out dozens of them and giving them to friends who were marching, or mailing them to people who were collecting. The women doing it, who from what I could tell, were mostly just inspired by other social media virtue signalers were knitting right up to the last minute, and a number of prominent designers were releasing free patterns for them. I estimate that I could have easily done sixty or so myself, if I’d been so inclined. My hunch is that they are mostly being genuinely home produced, but I could be way off base. As it is, I’ll be glad when the stupid things disappear from Ravelry entirely.

    "Does Washington have a permissive concealed-carry law?"

    If by permissive you mean that any sane, non-felon can apply for and get one, then the answer is "Yes". No test required. Just fingerprints. At least that was true 10 years ago when I got mine. Remember, most of Washington is wild country or range. Seattle, the wet side, the liberal side, is just a slice.

    Thanks for the clarification; that is indeed what I meant by “permissive”. They require fingerprints? That’s rather police-state like, if you ask me. I’m not surprised. I wonder if Seattle has still more restrictive ordinances in place.

    When I was a young Marine on liberty in Hamburg in 1978, there was a Soviet freighter in port at the same time.

    One evening out, me and my pals ran into a few of them and got shit-faced together. There was lots of Cold War type banter/pride, but towards the end of the evening, one of the Soviet sailors, with a lot of drunk Russian sentimentality, tells me that the East/West thing is nonsense, the big competition is going to be north/south hemispheres.

    For whatever reason, the moment made an impression. Anyhow, I heard it as early as 1978 from a drunken Soviet merchant marine sailor.

    What are intersectionality switches and what does it mean to flip them?

    Milo has lots of diversity pokemon points. He’s a flaming homosexual, obviously, and a foreigner, though not the preferred type. (He’s seemingly Jewish, too, though I don’t actually know whether he is.) Therefore, he not only is allowed on the air and given room to speak, they actually listen to him and let him take over conversations. Unlike with people like Ann Coulter, for instance, who can take over the conversation because she’s adept at media and a good arguer, with Milo it’s not so much a fight. They let him do it, and can’t help themselves. Because according to their worldview he shouldn’t exist.

    Apart from what he is, there’s how he comes off. He sounds and generally talks like the educated liberal class. He dresses and wears his hair like a dandy. He talks about screwing black dudes. He knows the way they think, and speaks their language, but comes to opposing conclusions. They can’t handle that. It sets their heads spinning.

    They could go after him directly, like with Peter Thiel (or any number of black “oreos”), and deny him his due diversity pokemon points. That’s already begun. But he’s too “fabulous,” as he would put it, for that to stick. At least for now.

    Eventually he’ll be the Official Gay Guy of the Right, and they’ll ignore him. But currently they’re stuck on him as a “thing that should not be.” He really shouldn’t he that much of a shock, considering–aside from the general free speech issue–he’s most famous for being an anti-feminist and homos don’t like women. We only pretend they do because…solidarity? (Or because homos and women are often friends. But female friends all secretly hate eachother; everyone knows that.)

    These IWW guys are really stupid. Just click around on their site and you'll see exhortations to commit criminal assault all over the place. The fact that shootee is a member of this organization would make a defense attorney's job so much easier if it comes down to a self-defense trial. On one page a wobblie is holding up a sign that says "make fascists afraid again." Naturally, they see Trump supporters as "fascists." What's the standard for acting in self-defense? Why, it's that you were "afraid," of course.

    Morons. It goes to show how much of a free pass the left has had for decades that they think they can still get away with this. It's about time the FBI dealt with these people in the same manner they've gone after other criminal gangs. Given that the anarchists have a propensity to assault LEOs, I don't think our new administration will have to provide much in the way of motivation for that. No, all they'll have to do is unleash them.

    If this administration is even half as hard on leftist criminals as the previous four have been on the equivalent on the right, these punks will be in for the shock of their lives.

But I like to think of it as operating like a computer program as regards judging people and giving them a place in their hierarchy. There are a series of switches that are answered yes or no, and the path you cut through the switches determines how much power, influence, etc. you get. If you end up with respect, you’re expected to have the right political opinions. That’s just the way it works.

    Milo flips the right switches on so many questions, most importantly in-your-face homosexuality. Yet he’s not one of them. He’s not in my gang, exactly, either. But he is the enemy of my enemy.

    If I may be permitted to add a personal note here, I would just like to say that I am no fan of Milo Yiannopoulos, and I'm sick and tired of Breitbart treating every incident of this man's histrionic life as if it were BREAKING NEWS! Day after day Breitbart subjects its readers to a barrage of headlines like "Milo banned from Twitter," "Milo barred from here," Milo heckled there," etc., all in 24-point blinking lavender font. What is the point of all this? Is this supposed to be the new face of "conservative" journalism---the gonzo escapades of a gay drama queen?

    I find Milo to be needlessly provocative and often wrong in what he writes and says. I don't visit Breitbart nearly as much as I once did, and Milo is not the only reason. I also find their relentlessly pro-Israel stance rather disappointing, but Milo in particular is not the face of any Alt-Right movement I care to be associated with, and I'm not surprised that his flamboyant rallies ended up setting off some violence.

    I find Milo to be needlessly provocative

    Hahaha. Provocative is Milo’s redeeming quality. He’s a one-off degenerate prog-stack-jammer sideshow whose mere presence in the heart of SJW “safe spaces” helped give us Trigglypuff and a gut-shot likely ‘anarchist’ thug who could be facing felony assault charges. Making the Left look ridiculous and insanely hypocritical: I call that winning. Let him loose in enemy dens to flamboyantly Röhm about.

    While free speech ‘provocateurs’ like Yiannopoulus distract and expose SJW college yoof and totalitarian thugs, Trump and others who can affect actual policy will quietly scoop up more reactionary Core American support and get stuff done. Jeff Sessions type stuff. Wayne LaPierre type stuff.

    In the past men put up with crappy jobs because it gave them status in their families and the community; they were providers. Now they don’t have jobs and they don’t have status. Women may have the jobs, but they don’t have status because women’s status is tied usually to physical attractiveness when young and their position in a family when they get older. No family–no status, result: inchoate rage. They know they’re unhappy but they don’t really know why.

    Did you not watch the video? The shooter “Yellow Hat” is being set upon by a mob. The primary attacker appears to be the shootee, “Bald Guy”.
     
    That's my take on it. The fact that the shooting target was a Wobbly, and the appearances and behavior of each, make it look like this was probably a justifiable shooting. Washington state has fairly liberal gun laws – generally the most liberal of any West Coast state – including being one of the few states that has no training requirements for getting a carry permit, and a large number of people even in Seattle carry. I don't imagine if the shooter had been carrying illegally and shot somebody, he would have been released without charge. It's unlikely that a 50-something Asian male wearing a goofy yellow hat like that who has a gun permit and who turns himself into the police after a shooting would be an SJW.

    Seattle has no love for black bloc anarchists. The break a lot of windows and get the peaceful protestors tear gassed and mixed up with police.

    It’s way past time for the authorities to launch anti-nazi certifications for all white people in the country. These will be renewed annually, upon passing a simple test to screen out pro-white thoughts. Then law enforcement and especially media will be able to determine quickly whether or not we deserve to die.
     
    Yonder, on the horizon... :

    The Sault Ste. Marie and Area Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is proud to launch the 'Take the Pledge against Racism and Discrimination' campaign.

    Visit discoverthesault.ca to 'Take the Pledge' and print your certificate.

    By taking this online pledge, supporters are making a personal commitment to understand, stand against, and act to eliminate racism and discrimination.

    "It only takes a few seconds to go online and fill out the form. When you click submit, your pledge is added to a running count of those who've also taken the pledge. There are so many different cultures in Canada; we face the challenges of acceptance and inclusion every day. We hope this campaign will draw attention to what we as a society can accomplish when we stand together. Through the 'Take the Pledge' campaign we are working to make the world a more welcoming place where we appreciate all people, all cultures, and the talents they bring to our communities," states Danny Krmpotich, Program Coordinator - Local Immigration Partnership.
     

    And this is a quasi-official undertaking

    http://www.discoverthesault.ca/Latest-News/January-2017/Local-Immigration-Partnership-launches-Take-the-Pl.aspx

    According to Wiki, the “total visible minority” population of Sault Ste Marie is a staggering 1.65%, so just imagine how much more seriously the government would have to take the problem if the minority population were to skyrocket to, say, 2%. Perhaps then the pledge would become mandatory under such a dire circumstance.

    You can laugh easier when you know you don’t have to look over your shoulder to see who is watching. Or when you don’t have to worry about being the first one to stop clapping….

    Don’t some leftists consider trying to be be racially blind a form of racism?
     
    Yes. If you're white, and you believe in racial differences, you're a racist. But if you're white and you're "colorblind", i.e, you believe people should be judged as individuals and not as members of racial groups, you're also a racist, because you're denying an essential part of the person of color's identity.

    If you're white and you hate rap, that's prejudice, and you're a racist.

    If you're white and you love rap, that's cultural appropriation, and you're a racist.

    If you're white and move away from a black neighborhood, that's white flight, and you're a racist.

    If you're white and move into a black neighborhood, that's gentrification, and you're a racist.

    I don’t even know what a racist is anymore.
     
    Hmm....what seems to be the common denominator here?

    It's getting harder and harder to avoid the conclusion that racist just means white gentile.

    The spin I’m getting seems to be that matey in the bandanna who got gutshot had been part of one of those Black Block type antifa crews-for-hire, steaming the crowd and twatting anyone they didn’t like the look of.

    That spin would be accurate. The link provided by another poster to the IWW crowdfunding appeal for their comrade's medical costs is essential reading:

    https://www.crowdrise.com/medical-fundraiser-for-iww-and-gdc-member-shot-in-seattle


    IWW AND GDC MEMBER SHOT IN SEATTLE MEDICAL FUNDRAISER
    Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

    On the evening of Friday, January 20th, a comrade of ours was shot in the stomach in the most public place on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle – a place called “Red Square” for the color of its bricks rather than its politics.

    This Fellow Worker (what members of the IWW call ourselves) and Defender (for GDC members) is a longtime anti-fascist and dedicated activist, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the General Defense Committee of the IWW. He’s currently in critical condition at Harborview Hospital in Seattle. They have a Level One Trauma center, so it’s likely he is receiving the best quality care available, for which we are deeply grateful.

    How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort. Will others are willing step up and replace his effort while he heals? Our response will help determine that.

    There is a limited amount of time for us to make clear to the world what is clear to us: we are under armed attack. The fascist right knows where to find us – protests such as anti-Donald Trump events, or actions against police brutality. In the Twin Cities, the trial has just begun of Allen Scarsella, one of the white supremacists who came to the Fourth Precinct in Minneapolis in November, 2015 and opened fire, shooting multiple people.

    We don’t have confirmation that the person who shot our comrade was a counter-protester angry at those protesting Milo’s hateful white nationalist misogyny. We do know that he turned himself into the police several hours later, claiming ‘self-defense.’ This, of course, is exactly what Scarsella did as well.

    Our friend will have enormous hospital bills and undoubtedly some legal costs as well. There will be a significant loss of income. Let’s raise him so much that he won’t have to worry about that angle of things. Please give. All money will be controlled directly by them and their partner; none will go to any other cause, excepting any fees associated with the fundraising service used.
    Please don’t just give; please tell your friends and families and organizations to give. That may sound daunting, but here’s why they should:

    This isn’t just about one guy. Your friends and families know that the situation has changed dramatically. They know that things are changing fast, and have heard the word fascism a lot since Trump was elected. They may even suspect that the breakneck pace of media revelations and executive decisions is intended to distract them and make them feel helpless.

    This is about protecting those who have already been putting themselves on the line protecting us. Who have been organizing for us and got there even before Donald Trump was elected. This is about protecting them. This is about emboldening OUR side to organized to protect ourselves, rather than simply beg for protection from fascists and racists. Some of whom are now in political power.

    We need to ensure widespread support for them, and we need to do it in the name of organized anti-fascism. We must demonstrate that no matter our own political analysis or identity – progressive, liberal, leftist, radical, etc. – we support anti-fascism, and we support antifascists. We will not leave our own behind. We will support antifascist efforts, most of all because they are needed more than ever, and not supporting them at this crucial point would be a disaster.
    Thank you for reading all the way to the end. It’s hard to hear that a comrade has been shot. We may not have expressed everything in the most organized or best way above, and if that is the case, please accept our apologies.

    We hope you will consider making a contribution, and perhaps writing letters or calling to the President of the University of Washington and expressing support for the victim of the shooting and the protesters, and criticism of the UW administration for permitting an event they knew was going to promote violence against minority groups. Now they’ve gotten what they should have known was coming. Call or write the County Attorney and demand aggressive prosecution. Call Seattle City Councilors and ask them to issue a public statement of condemnation of violent attacks on anti-racist and antifascist protesters, and support of our Fellow Worker.

    Worker? Really? Where does he work? He’s a member of the Industrial Workers of the World. Does he work in a factory?

    How do we respond? We are building an expanded anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-fascist presence in Seattle, and this person was spearheading that effort.

    It’s funny how these anti-fa guys think they are red street-fighters, when actually they are just volunteer enforcers for the global capitalist elite.

He works twenty hours per week there, where he receives healthcare insurance, and uses his mom's credit card to upgrade his iPhone every twelve months so he can communicate about oppression in style. He associates mostly with Africans who have graduate degrees and lives in an overwhelmingly white-and-Asian neighborhood, but he is an expert on the lives and struggles of his dusky brothers and sisters in arms.

    Kudos to both Diversity Heretic and The Anti-Gnostic for these analyses.

    The CAREER! vs just-a-job distinction is something Mrs Calvinist and I are trying to teach our daughter in order to counterbalance the overwhelming weight of the messaging she receives both at school and from the popular culture. We don't want to dampen her intellectual enthusiasm, but we want her to understand that the vast majority of us work at jobs that don't fulfill all of our adolescent dreams. That latter assumption, i.e. that everyone must 'discover' and pursue a dream occupation that will spark and fire their 'passion', has been the overweening message conveyed to young people in post-industrial societies for decades now.

    “That latter assumption, i.e. that everyone must ‘discover’ and pursue a dream occupation that will spark and fire their ‘passion’, has been the overweening message conveyed to young people in post-industrial societies for decades now.”

    He was confident no one else on the other side had a gun, that is why he fired. Hitting a guy with a pole (or nightstick) isn't deadly force, and that someone on the same side as the person you shoot did that to someone on your side is largely irrelevant if person you shoot proves you used deadly force by dying of it.

    I think we can all remember a case where the only thing that saved the shooter was a head injury. You can’t take what was deemed a deadly force assault in this case with video evidence as any guide to what would happen to you if you shot someone dead in a confrontation, whereby you sustained no injuries.

    They have been provoking gunfights in Washington state for about a hundred years.

    I've never met a Teamster, Longshoreman, or BLET member who has any respect for the IWW. They're considered a joke by real workers. And, to be quite frank, their politics and ideology could well lead to them being told "shut up or I'll kick your ass" by your typical skilled union worker, who doesn't take kindly to either anti-white, anti-American or anti-military attitudes.

  223. Here is a video that breaks it down very slowly, and keeps a red and yellow bar above the shootee and shooter.

    https://vid.me/E9F6/shooting-at-uw-milo-event-protest-enhanced-foota

    Looks like some toward the left half of the picture gets set up (first the hat is knocked and then we he goes to get it, he gets roughed up). Shooter (yellow hat) starts to move in. He may or may not have drawn the gun at that point, but based on following events, I think he probably had drawn it.

    Antifa thug (shootee) runs at him and appears to try to disarm him. He’s grabbing at his arms, which are extended out. He fails, and goes after him again. Fails, then the mob starts to grab at him, along with shootee making a third charge. BOOM!

    Maybe he drew the gun prematurely, not sure. But the dude who got shot seemed to keep going at him knowing he had the gun.

    It’s also possible that the shooter was an antifa type who had drawn the gun on the MAGA guy that was getting roughed up by others, and the shootee (another antifa thug) went to try to stop him, causing a melee.

    Milo has lots of diversity pokemon points. He's a flaming homosexual, obviously, and a foreigner, though not the preferred type. (He's seemingly Jewish, too, though I don't actually know whether he is.) Therefore, he not only is allowed on the air and given room to speak, they actually listen to him and let him take over conversations. Unlike with people like Ann Coulter, for instance, who can take over the conversation because she's adept at media and a good arguer, with Milo it's not so much a fight. They let him do it, and can't help themselves. Because according to their worldview he shouldn't exist.

    Apart from what he is, there's how he comes off. He sounds and generally talks like the educated liberal class. He dresses and wears his hair like a dandy. He talks about screwing black dudes. He knows the way they think, and speaks their language, but comes to opposing conclusions. They can't handle that. It sets their heads spinning.

    They could go after him directly, like with Peter Thiel (or any number of black "oreos"), and deny him his due diversity pokemon points. That's already begun. But he's too "fabulous," as he would put it, for that to stick. At least for now.

    Eventually he'll be the Official Gay Guy of the Right, and they'll ignore him. But currently they're stuck on him as a "thing that should not be." He really shouldn't he that much of a shock, considering--aside from the general free speech issue--he's most famous for being an anti-feminist and homos don't like women. We only pretend they do because...solidarity? (Or because homos and women are often friends. But female friends all secretly hate eachother; everyone knows that.)

    Unlike with people like Ann Coulter, for instance, who can take over the conversation because she’s adept at media and a good arguer, with Milo it’s not so much a fight. They let him do it, and can’t help themselves. Because according to their worldview he shouldn’t exist.

    He’s also a pretty good debater, in situations where he engages an opponent. That doesn’t happen often on his speaking tour, but I have heard him eviscerate interlocutors in panel discussions or hostile interviewers.

    These IWW guys are really stupid. Just click around on their site and you'll see exhortations to commit criminal assault all over the place. The fact that shootee is a member of this organization would make a defense attorney's job so much easier if it comes down to a self-defense trial. On one page a wobblie is holding up a sign that says "make fascists afraid again." Naturally, they see Trump supporters as "fascists." What's the standard for acting in self-defense? Why, it's that you were "afraid," of course.

    Morons. It goes to show how much of a free pass the left has had for decades that they think they can still get away with this. It's about time the FBI dealt with these people in the same manner they've gone after other criminal gangs. Given that the anarchists have a propensity to assault LEOs, I don't think our new administration will have to provide much in the way of motivation for that. No, all they'll have to do is unleash them.

    If this administration is even half as hard on leftist criminals as the previous four have been on the equivalent on the right, these punks will be in for the shock of their lives.

    Take the dozens (or more) of FBI agents assigned to infiltrate the non-existent KKK and reassign them to infiltrate these nutty groups (that are actually committing violence daily).

    Which one of these religious leaders sounded more as Sheldon’s debt collector, for what he really is, and less as a generic salesman of organized-spirituality?

    For all other fans of Psalmopathy – 137;8 & 137;9 are both classics of early humanist thought – I will paraphrase Psalm 137;5 :

    Very astute comment! When I taught employment law, and the student body was 90-95% female, I used to say, "Look ladies, you all talk about careers. You're going to find out what men have known for years: for almost all of you it'll just be a job. There's a reason it's called work."

    In the past men put up with crappy jobs because it gave them status in their families and the community; they were providers. Now they don't have jobs and they don't have status. Women may have the jobs, but they don't have status because women's status is tied usually to physical attractiveness when young and their position in a family when they get older. No family--no status, result: inchoate rage. They know they're unhappy but they don't really know why.

    The description of the sort of psychological economics of passing are outstanding. Roth does an excellent job of trying to think his way into the shoes of somebody who decides to pass from black to white.

    The movie version doesn’t really work because of some curious casting, although the “Prison Break” star who plays the young version of Coleman Silk is good. But the movie isn’t bad, and the parts about passing are first rate.
