See earlier(January, 2017): “It Will Come To Blood”—Reflections On The Left’s Anti-Trump Inauguration Tantrum

After Russia invaded Ukraine, CNN reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin employed the “Big Lie” to justify the military action, and that Biden “deployed the truth” to oppose him [Putin’s war was launched on a runway of lies, by Frida Ghitis, CNN, February 25, 2022]. The Regime Media line was this: Russians lie with abandon, unlike Americans, because their political culture permits it. This was said with a straight face, of course. As Big Lies and corrupt political culture go, however, forget Russia. We have our own to handle.

Consider the government’s treatment of Antifa terrorists who rioted on Donald Trump’s inauguration day, January 20, 2017 (J20 hereafter), and its treatment of Trump supporters arrested in connection with the Mostly Peaceful Protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 (J6). Federal judges and prosecutors mostly let J20’s Trump-hating communists off scot-free. Those same federal officials have waged a campaign of legal terror and physical brutality against the J6 Trump supporters who tried to stop The Big Steal. If one ever wanted to see an example of what the late Sam Francis called Anarcho-Tyranny, this is it.

Let’s review the two.

Before J20, Before J6:

For weeks in late 2016 and early 2017, Antifa’s communists and anarchists openly strategized on the Internet and in secret meetings, to halt Trump’s Inauguration. They agreed to use Black Bloc tactics, and non-violent rioters (who did not commit violent crimes) acted as human shields and marched with violent rioters (who did). One group was indistinguishable from the other, with both groups then removing their disguises on side streets.

But said strategy erased the legal distinction between violent rioters and peaceful demonstrators. It was one big criminal conspiracy, as with a bank robbery, in which the “non-violent” getaway driver waits outside, while his gun-toting partners work inside and implicitly threaten to murder employees and customers, if they don’t actually do so.

In contrast, while J6 protesters used social media to organize the rally at which President Trump spoke, they did not conspire to riot or commit arson. They went to our nation’s capital to demand audits of key states, and encourage Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to certify the fraudulent election results.

Yet some that day clearly conspired to start trouble, knowing a crackdown against dissidents would ensue. Present at the J6 protests were mysterious individuals (Antifa? FBI?) who encouraged violence, as VDARE.com’s Peter Brimelow noted a month later.

Both the VDARE.com video team and our writer J.R. Kipling were present on the Capitol steps—unknown to each other. And both separately reported that there was something unusual about the individuals who actually precipitated the move into the Capitol….

Note carefully: We’re not saying that ALL the Trump protest was entirely an Antifa/ BLM false flag operation

We’re saying that, if Trump were a Democrat, “agent provocateurs” would be outed and blamed for their role in stoking violence.

We know this because Democrat elected officials shamelessly claimed that “white supremacists” and “right-wing agitators” were responsible for the Antifa/ BLM summer of riots.

CAPITOL “INSURRECTION” HOAX: How Our Lying Press Would Have Spun Jan 6 Protest If Trump Were A Democrat [VIDEO], February 9, 2021

Of course, the Democrats and lying Regime Media were uninterested in that truth.

The J20 Defendants, The Charges, And The Courts

Hundreds if not thousands of Antifa anarchists and communists rioted and committed arson on J20. We know this because we saw it on videotapes and still photographs.

The J20 anarchists and communists threw rocks, smashed windows, assaulted police with projectiles, terrified customers in businesses they vandalized, and set SUVs and limousines on fire, destroying them.

[YouTube]

Here’s the late Larry King, who was in DC on January 20:

As I wrote at the time, 235 J/20 suspects were charged with various felonies (as many as five felony counts each of riot, one of property destruction, and two misdemeanor charges each for engaging in a riot and conspiracy to riot) such that, according to their Lügenpresse supporters, they were liable to serve anywhere from 20-70 years in prison and be fined as much as \$25,000.

But a funny thing happened on the way to justice: They were quickly bonded out, then the judges rigged the cases to free the defendants.

The first judge presiding over the cases was Bush II appointee, U.S. Superior Court Presiding Judge Lynn Leibovitz. Leibovitz forbade the prosecution from using phrases like “Antifa” and “Black Bloc,” and just before the jury went in for deliberations, threw out the felony riot charges. Because the defendants had conspired to use what they called “Black Bloc tactics,” saw themselves as part of “Antifa,” and had used said terms in planning the riot, the prosecution could not make its case without using those phrases. As the juries couldn’t understand the prosecution’s cases, they had no choice but to acquit.

Leibovitz’s J20 malfeasance was a newfangled, stealth version of a directed verdict. Just two defendants were convicted, but Leibovitz suspended their sentences. Only one of the 235 defendants, Dane Powell, did any jail time: four months.

I hoped for a change in jurist, and got one, in U.S. Superior Court Chief Judge Robert E. Morin, a Clinton appointee. But Morin proved every bit as bad as Leibovitz.

The cases before Morin were made through a woman undercover detective who attended Antifa’s planning meetings. Shockingly, and in a revolutionary ruling, Morin would not permit her to testify unless she revealed her real name and face in open court. As Morin well knew, that would have ended the detective’s career and jeopardized her life. She refused. That killed the prosecution, and, if institutionalized, would kill all sorts of investigations, such as those into organized crime.

Leibovitz and Morin are obvious Trump-haters, and might well have conspired to throw the cases. The judicial misconduct was so extreme that the president’s new U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C., Jesse K. Liu, threw up her hands and dropped the charges against the remaining defendants.

Even worse, in April 2021, Washington, D.C. settled a frivolous lawsuit initiated by the usual suspects—criminal defendants, the local ACLU, and a private attorney—for \$1.6 million. The city even agreed to make its police more riot-friendly.

The D.C. government will pay \$1.6 million to settle two lawsuits alleging police unlawfully detained more than 200 protesters in mass arrests the day of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration in January 2017, the parties told a federal judge Monday.

Demonstrators represented by the ACLU of the District of Columbia and Jeffrey L. Light alleged D.C. police violated the constitutional rights of journalists, legal observers and protesters by indiscriminately rounding them up in downtown Washington after rampaging vandals damaged property over several blocks on Jan. 20, 2017.

The city agreed to pay \$605,000 to six defendants represented by the ACLU and nearly \$1 million to about 200 others falsely arrested and held up to 16 hours without food, water or restrooms in a class-action case brought by Light, according to court filings.

[D.C. to pay \$1.6 million to settle mass arrest lawsuits from 2017 Trump inauguration, by Spencer S. Hsu and Peter Hermann, The Washington Post, April 26, 2021]

If I’m not mistaken, the “about 200” people the Post cited were not “falsely arrested,” but were criminal suspects whom Leibovitz and Morin aided and abetted.

Conspiracy to subvert justice is a crime. Justice would require that the judges be impeached at the very least, and ideally disbarred and imprisoned. But President Trump did nothing.

The J6 Defendants, The Charges, and the Courts

Let’s contrast that with what happened at the J6 protest to stop the Electoral College count and ensuing Big Steal. At the time and ever since, the Leftist Mainstream Media and the presiding D.C. judges presiding have depicted Trump supporters as violent “white supremacists,” “insurrectionists,” and “domestic terrorists.”

Indeed, the running narrative is that J6 is another 9/11, or worse:

That’s complete nonsense, of course. And we know, again, that Antifa and other provocateurs were there, and worse still, that Capitol Police likely caused the death of three unarmed, non-violent, white Trump supporters: Roseanne Boyland, also 34, Kevin Greeson, 55, and Benjamin Phillips, 50. And, famously, an immigrant Capitol Hill cop shot and killed Ashli Babbitt.

Julie Kelly of American Greatness has written a must-read book, January 6: How Democrats Used the Capitol Protest to Launch a War on Terror against the Political Right, which explains how the treatment of the J6 defendants contrasts with that of J20 defendants.

The J6 protesters weren’t bonded out, and some are in solitary confinement, for starters. The feds arrested more than 570 J6 protesters—more than twice as many as they arrested for the J20 mayhem—and charged many with “civil disorder,” “obstruction of an official proceeding,” and “violent entry into the Capitol building.”

Many, if not all of the “crimes” are counterfeit because, after J6, videos and photographs were found of Capitol Police holding doors open for “rioters,” and meeting inside the Capitol Building with them, explaining the rules of engagement to them. As Kelly notes, the demonstrators cannot have been guilty of misdemeanor trespassing. If they were, USCP officers would have arrested them at the time. When radical leftists committed identical acts, by the way, congressional leaders celebrated them.

Some federal prosecutors unwittingly confessed to their crimes. They bragged of arresting Trump supporters for misdemeanors while intending to charge them with major felonies such as sedition. They want Trump supporters too terrified ever again to protest The Big Steal. Call it shock and awe.

J20 rioters did exactly what judges and prosecutors have accused the J6 defendants of doing. The rioting communists tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a lawful election.

Kelly persuasively argues that the J6 judges and prosecutors have undermine the rule of law by:

  • Eliminating the presumption of innocence;
  • Equating support for Trump with being a domestic terrorist;
  • Criminalizing dissent, which they use as a pretext to deny granting bond to defendants;
  • Subjecting defendants who haven’t been convicted of a crime to cruel and unusual punishment, including the torture of white defendants by racist, black jailers in something of an American Tower of London;
  • Forcing defendants to grovel in court and recant their political beliefs;
  • Denying the right to a speedy trial by delaying them;
  • Violating the 1984 Bail Reform Act by unlawfully keeping defendants in jail;
  • Violating the Brady rules [Brady v. Maryland (1963)] that require prosecutors to give the defense potentially exculpatory evidence, in this case videotapes that judges have permitted prosecutors to suppress; and
  • Engaging in outrageously unprofessional, partisan misconduct in court at detention hearings, in which they rant and rave for up to 40 minutes at a time while expressing their burning hatred for President Trump and his supporters.

For good measure, a court-appointed attorney for several indigent J6 defendants, anti-white H. Heather Shaner, has lectured clients that they benefit from “white privilege,” forced them to study anti-white propaganda, and coerced them into apologizing for being white [A Lawyer For Jan. 6 Defendants Is Giving Her Clients Remedial Lessons In American History, by Ryan J. Reilly, Huffpost, June 23, 2021]. One wouldn’t think that an attorney who despises her clients can represent them to the best of her ability, as she is ethically and legally bound to do.

Prosecutors and FBI agents have even terrorized innocent people such as Joseph Bolanos, 69, in their homes. After a neighbor heard Bolanos, who lives on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, say that he was in the nation’s capital on January 6, the neighbor reported him to the FBI. A few days later, the bureau sent a SWAT team to terrorize Bolanos. They ransacked his and his mother’s apartments, seized his electronic devices, and caused him to suffer a stroke. Bolanos is a registered Democrat. And now neighbors shun him. Post J6, simply visiting our nation’s capital is, apparently, probable cause for issuing a search warrant.

The following D.C. judges are so out of line that they make Leibovitz and Morin look exemplary: Michael Aloi, Royce Lamberth, Emmet Sullivan, Thomas Hogan, Timothy Kelly, Randolph Moss, Zia Faruqui and Beryl Howell.

Demonstrators told Kelly that they were not violent, yet the Capitol and Metro police forces attacked with stingers, tear gas, and flash bang grenades anyway. The non-violent demonstrators responded, “We’ve always had your back!” and gave them the finger.

For generations, the Deep State has been consolidating its power. No patriotic party stood against it. Now that state has stolen an election, we have as President a dictator who likely has dementia, and as Vice President a cackling moron and anchor baby ready to replace him. Law enforcement and the judiciary have embraced the rule of crime, with the lying MSM and academia acting as their propaganda officers and cheerleaders.

This is life in the anarcho-tyranny, as Francis described it, in which “criminals aren’t punished (which is why it is anarchy), but the innocent are (which is why it’s tyranny).”

Too bad we can’t pray for Americans to parachute in and save us.

President Trump could at least do something and defend his supporters. He must demand their release, exoneration, and indemnification, and the prosecution of those who have persecuted them.

And if he is re-elected, or another Republican takes the White House, he must pardon the J6ers to send anarcho-tyranny a message: The Real Resistance has begun.

  3. “The right better wake up to this soon.”

    Forget it. The Right is what put us in this predicament. It’s just another set of mortal enemies.

  4. The way I understand it, the felony rioting charges didn’t have a firm ground in law because they happened on the streets of D.C., under Metropolitan Police jurisdiction.

    One of the differences of the J6 Capitol disturbance is that the Trump supporters were herded onto Capitol grounds and into the building, which come under Capitol Police jurisdiction. This is a whole different prosecutorial ball game.

    It looks like a well laid trap by Feds who gamed out the scenario in advance.

    Antifa communists repeated their rioting exploits in 2020, causing a mini-siege of the White House and injuries to police. It did not result in exemplary charges.

    One of the more egregious double standards of that year was the fire-bombing terrorists who threw a molotov cocktail into a police vehicle and received no prison time at all.

    “They were arrested on May 30 2020 and held in jail for more than two days before a federal magistrate judge released them to home confinement. Prosecutors appealed twice to keep them behind bars, saying that the pair had tried to incite others to carry out similar attacks and that “they could not be trusted to refrain” from similar behavior.

    “More than 50 former federal prosecutors signed a public letter urging the appeals court to reject the U.S. attorney’s office’s argument for detention, saying it contradicted settled bail law.

    “Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman were ultimately released pending trial.”

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/20/nyregion/george-floyd-protests-lawyers-plea-deal.html

    Which begs the question, who worked the phones to obtain the signatures of “more than 50 former federal prosecutors”? This should be investigated to the fullest.

    If Republicans, the center-right party in the US, simply lowered taxes starving the beast, eliminated affirmative action, enforced immigration laws and went hard on law and order, which are all part of their platform, I think they could turn this mess around. Giuliani did it in NYC to a large extent and he kept it in business for 30 years. It’s actually our only hope. DeSantis could be the guy to do it.

  6. Well, sure!

    But Giuliani did not eliminate affirmative action, and he actively undermined immigration law enforcement.

    And even his tough law-and-order stance (excepting illegal aliens, who got a free ride) was undermined by pro-black criminal judges and prosecutors.

  11. Powerful indictment of our judicial system. All is not well in the halls of American justice. And this brand of entrenched institutional rot is nearly impossible to root out.

    Third world agitation and commie subversion are being aided and protected like never before by all the usual suspects: mainstream pundits, race-obsessed judges, the legacy media, and last (but not least) the liberty-loving (((ACLU))).

    This unholy alliance forms the backbone of the the anarcho-tyranny movement that is slowly eating away at the foundations of a once-proud, once-decentralized, European-derived civilization. Thank you, Nicholas Stix, for your gripping analysis.

  12. @David In TN

    The difference being that power and wealth generally gets a pass in most, if not all nations in regards to all walks of everyday life. Money simply buys more influence, better insurance. Most average Americans are untouched by this unfair preferential treatment.
    This new turn in district attorneys, judges, politicians, the FBI, entire bureaucracies extending such privileges to the American masses based on political ideologies or preferential races (not white) transforms the entire nation pretty quickly. As we are currently seeing right before our very own eyes.

    Things are getting a bit disquieting.

    Partial tally:
    * Judiciary now a regime protection force. No more law, just regulations enforced for administrative convenience.
    * Urban police are now a regime protection force.
    * The US Army is not even a regime protection force — it is a patronage organization whose main task is not to threaten the regime.
    * Assets and property are now confiscated at governmental convenience, which includes regime protection. Confiscation applies to both domestic and international property, which marks the end of the Bretton Woods conventions. The US Dollar is in severe danger of losing its status as international reserve currency. https://www.zerohedge.com/crypto/hyper-bitcoinization-now-baked
    * Elections have essentially ended in the West. 2020 elections now proven to be stolen by media and ballot tampering, but no consequences are even proposed for this theft. ** Look for 2022 and certainly 2024 elections to be somehow predetermined, possibly as a war measure, possibly by application of anarcho-tyranny to arrest members of the opposition, on the grounds that the opposition is immoral as it is trying to enforce oppression as defined by intersectionality thus violating social justice.
    * Free speech is over in the West, marked by Federal designation of people verbally opposing school board actions as terrorists.
    * Whites are being demonized and excluded from participation in politics.
    * Jews, a particularly powerful set of Whites, have lost their participation in Hollywood, and no longer control mass entertainment propaganda.
    * Jews are now considered as suspect Whites under the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Expect asset stripping lawsuits to follow (see confiscation point above). This isn’t the conversion of Jews to Christians, but legally it means that Jews are now treated as Christians (in that Jews are now as suspect as Christians — part of the basket of deplorables), at least under the law. It is profoundly disquieting that such a dominant organization as APIC could be so thoroughly defeated so quickly and without public notice. I have no idea how this could happen.
    * US no longer has effective military force. US Army was remade from an effective conventional force 20 years ago into a counterinsurgency force capable of fighting irregular forces, but not regular infantry/armor/artillery and air forces. The US Army has, in fact, relegated actual contact with enemy forces (actual combat) to mercenaries or sometimes Special Operations Forces (SOF). US nuclear deterrence is now at least obsolescent as compared to that of the Soviet Union.
    * US now has no effective leadership, as can be seen by comparing Pres. Biden to Pres. Trump. The Executive branch is effectively gone, absent, not there, and the various Democratic factions are operating independently of the Executive Branch and of each other. One could say the same for the Legislative Branch, although it’s not as obvious. As for the Judicial Branch, it has been threatened into compliance by interest groups and is not being protected by the other two Branches, which appear to approve of the threats.
    * The US government is losing legitimacy among all groups. The Whites doubt the justice of their designation as a suspect group under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and subsequent elaborations such as intersectionality and Critical Race Theory. The BIPOCS think the US government is contemptible in that it is (a) weak and (b) still hasn’t rescued them from the inner city.
    * The US cities are being abandoned to people who cannot get an income except through government. That is, the only support of urban areas is government funds. These people are making the cities into very unpleasant places, and the present urban governments are not keeping up with depreciation of urban capital plant. Informally put, all the urban areas (the SMSAs) are turning into copies of Detroit. Note that severe inflation and/or loss of international reserve currency by the US Dollar would effectively zero government’s ability to fund urban areas. Since the US political system is now based upon the urban vote, this would fundamentally destabilize the US political system
    * Informal summary:

    This institutional failure happens about every 80-90 years in the US and the West in general, and takes about a decade to clear up with a new organizational form. This time the resolution might take longer, it’s usually 30 years for the longer reorganizations, and might result in a division of the US, with the NE urban areas and the West Coast urban areas simply given their own regional government, to sink or swim, and the rest of the country a confederation headed by Texas and Florida, which are both the sort of cross-cultural societies that have historically been the nucleus of new countries, and are both strategically located.
    Fortunately for the US, it would appear that the rest of the world is having its own troubles, and should be preoccupied with these troubles long enough for the US to recover.

    Reading your article from 96 brought back some good memories. I don’t know that Giuliani didn’t “officially” end affirmative action regs, but guys I knew back then who under Dinkens and Brown were getting turned away from the NYPD, were able to get on. The civil service tests were used as they were supposed to be used and the hiring of incompetent minorities slowed down into the Bloomberg years. I remember the talk about how precincts were downplaying crime numbers so the captains and others wouldn’t lose their jobs. But there was a difference, Giuliani didn’t go after the cops, he gave them more of a free hand and things did change. In the late 80s, early 90s, people I worked with were mugged in midtown, in the daylight. Assaults and muggings in the subway were common. Then, all of a sudden, with more arrests and Pataki’s longer jail sentences, things did get better. Not good enough that I stayed living in the city, I wouldn’t let my kids grow up in that craphole, but Whites were able to survive a bit longer. (Bloomberg’s setting up little niche schools for Whites also helped, but that’s ending now.) Giuliani had his faults, I agree, but he did start the process that gave the city an extra 20 years of life. Now, with the White population down to about 35% and with a radical black mayor, NYC will go back to what it was pre-Giuliani.

    DeSantis added that his state has been “really leading the way fighting the BDS movement. … What the BDS movement is doing is “important, because what they’re doing is a reflection really, I think, of an anti-Semitic viewpoint.”

    The way I understand it, the felony rioting charges didn’t have a firm ground in law because they happened on the streets of D.C., under Metropolitan Police jurisdiction.

    I don’t have any legal training, but that seems odd given that the whole of DC is a federal jurisdiction. But then I know we live in Alice’s Wonderland or Superman’s Bizarro World so anything is possible. When you hear someone say without irony the phrases “rule of law” or “due process” give them the horselaugh.

    Years ago I discovered that the legal system, particularly criminal law, is corrupt. Corruption is like a cancer. If not destroyed early on, by metastasis it destroys the host until the host dies. We are at the point where justice has died. By chance alone one may receive fair treatment, but only if there are no over reaching drivers. In the case of J6, there is no hope of fair treatment. The judges and prosecutors are brainwashed that they are defending democracy thus abuse of authority is justified. Defending attorneys are either afraid of cancel culture or also believe their defendant deserves said punishment. Many of the public who are programmed by MSM and then become jurists also believe that these folks are insurrectionists and thus side with the prosecution. Only a great reset (and not the one world order kind) will change the current path.

    A good bit of the dissident right, those of us reading this article, woke up years ago, but are afraid to protest and suffer the same fate as the J6 trespassers. The cucked republican legislators, who are the vast majority, never will. And Trump, for all his bluster, is a cucked republican too.

    DeSantis is an Israeli tool. He actually held a legislative session of the State of Florida in Israel. He’s right on a lot of issues, but any American who worships Israel cannot be trusted.

    Isreal is just another country. We should only deal with them if and when it benefits the US.

  35. @InnerCynic

    And let’s not forget that Trump promised that he would lead his MAGA fanatics to the Capitol after his long-winded speech, whereupon he ducked back into the WH to watch the proceedings on Fox News. Really, if Trump had done what he promised to do, he could have stopped the protesters from entering the Capitol. His MAGA devotees learned a hard lesson that day that Trump could and should have prevented.

    DeSantis could be the guy to do it.

    Possibly but not likely. If he were to win the presidency he’ll turn in to a centrist cuck and start railing against racism and white supremacy.

    Brooklyn Lawyers Plead Guilty in Firebomb Case

    Which begs the question, who worked the phones to obtain the signatures of “more than 50 former federal prosecutors”? This should be investigated to the fullest.

    Who do you think should investigate? — and what should be done with any information gathered? — do you believe it was illegal or unethical to lobby for their release prior to trial?

    People are generally confined before trial when it’s deemed they pose a continued danger and/or are a flight risk — personally, from what I see, I don’t think either applied in the case of these two — so I’m agnostic about their release; in most cases I’m willing to leave such a decision to the discretion of the judge.

    I suggest you focus on the gross unfairness of not only how J6 defendants are being treated, but also how the J6 people are being treated vs the way these two were treated, and not on the fact these two were released pending trial — the comparison is the real outrage here.

    There are other stories about their guilty plea, and all say sentencing was set for early Feb, 2022 — but I was unable to find any news about their sentencing; perhaps it was delayed.

    To see how egregious plea deals can be in the sense of achieving ‘justice’, whatever that means today, read the article to see the original charges vs the single charge of the guilty plea — a brief excerpt:

    Federal prosecutors brought stiff charges against them: seven counts, including arson and civil disorder, which collectively could have carried a 45-year minimum sentence. … On Wednesday, Ms. Rahman, 32, and Mr. Mattis, 34, pleaded guilty in federal court in Brooklyn to one count apiece of possession of a destructive device, as part of a deal … Ms. Rahman and Mr. Mattis had agreed not to appeal any sentence of five years or less.

    They will probably not spend much time in jail; if not, that won’t really bother me too much (I think they were overcharged) — but in addition to any time they serve, I think they should also pay full restitution for any damage, plus a fine, and be permanently disbarred, meaning they can never practice law again — to me, permanent disbarment is essential, and important as a deterrent.

    The article begins with this unintentionally funny text:

    On a May night in 2020, two young lawyers — high achievers who had risen from working-class roots to prestigious schools and promising careers — joined thousands of others on the streets of Brooklyn to protest the murder of George Floyd.

    Looking at the fotos, they both have affirmative action written all over them.

    -agree. Further though also, judicial anarch tyranny would be nothing if everyone lived per actual equality per effort of self-determination, anarchism and with tribal alliances. It is nature. The excluding limiting claims by supposed govmnts, courts, monotheism religions, do that, while limiting others but not themselves, which schemes came from the same source of cons. To forget how we lived long before those setups, what our lives and many religions and ways of living were, to forget has been and is perilous. When supposed courts and govt are accountable to no one, obviously there is no accounting. Pyramid scheme is not equality.
    Equality, is same standing each person, not some ‘above’ others.
    The article is some example comparison. To me the problem isn’ anarchism it’s they hold that to themselves while scribbling ‘laws’ that apply to others, but not themselves. Supposed courts and judges and lawyers are steering forces people forget to look at, search judicial immunity and judge malice. They can do what they want, no repercussions.

If the Muslims manage to push them off it tomorrow, it’s no big deal, except that about 5 million Israeli citizens would be on the next bus to America. Every single nationally known American politician has come out as a supporter of the Zionist state. Every single one. Including that little known Palestinian chick who said she supports an Israeli state, making her a “zionist”. I’m going to choose the most conservative candidate that has a chance to win.

    So while your argument seems reasonable, ultimately it’s just another round of ‘the lesser of two evils’ — surely you can understand why today some of us see it that way, and reject this kind of compromise, which we’ve been humiliatingly making for decades, only for the GOP, at any point in time, to behave like Democrats did ten years before (if that) — enough.

  77. I agree with everything in this article except one thing: the writer calls Antifa/BLM thugs “anarchists” and “communists.” They are nothing of the sort. They are mostly paid street operatives of the Democratic party, and they are recruited from alienated petit-bourgeois and marginal lumpen elements of the society and coached and organized by very powerful people, some private, some within the government. They are by definition reactionary. Any self-respecting anarchist (of which I am one) or communist would never stoop to favoring or disfavoring one or another candidate of this farce of a system. And any political action would be tactical, not geared for mass television consumption to buttress an overriding narrative of the elements already in power.

    I broke my voting fast for Trump in 2016 because the contrast to HRC was just too stark — but I couldn’t stomach voting for him again in 2020.

    Yet I also understand that voting is pretty much futile at this point.

    Yes, ‘muh democracy’, ‘vote harder’ — I’ve stated my view of the situation many times, most recently here.

    For Rich and HH, S&D is an American expatriate, married to a China girl from a well-connected family living in Dalian. He’s an OK guy politically, but he has a habit of wasting our time by trolling on this site when he’s bored of going shoes shopping with his wife. (Did I get this biography right, sir?)

    Hey, Supply & Demand, Peak Stupidity has been reporting on the new surge of Kung Flu Panic there, in Shanghai and down in Shenzhen/Dongguan. See “It’s baaacck! The Kung Flu in China”.

    I thought you people had DEFEATED this thing, man! What gives? Fat Winnie told the world that China knew how to take care of a this the best way, locking up entire buildings, fumigating cities with big green mobile CoviCannons, and terminating the dogs and hamsters with extreme prejudice. Even Ron Unz was impressed. Your people have lost face, man. I’d suggest trying to cover it up better.

    To me, little is more degrading than the way American politicians like conservagoy DeSantis pay obeisance to Jews and whore the country out to Israel …

    linkFew things are more obscene than seeing the traitors in Congress shovel money at Israel and the Ukraine while Americans are living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to afford basic necessities like food and fuel. There aren’t any complicated economics behind this, it’s quite simple in fact: The parasitic ruling class is in the looting phase, picking the carcass clean. It’s not incompetence, it’s malice. They hate us. They’re replacing us. And they’re killing us.

    DeSantis is one of the worst about this.

    After a little research it appears the General Kirby Smith statue was voted for removal and signed into law by Gov Rick Scott. Prior to DeSantis election. He did go along with the law, but I’m not sure if he could have legally stopped the statue replacement. The facts remain that dems will vote for laws that discriminate against Whites, they will always raise taxes and regulations and they will always back whatever degenerate lifestyle they can find. Obama ran for president saying he opposed homosexual “marriage”, now the whole party has come out. Unless you’re going to install a dictator who will do everything you want, you’re going to have to have compromise of a sort. If Israel is the compromise, so what? It’s a far off country, of little real importance to the US or to our daily lives. Lack of law enforcement, encouraging negroes to riot, taxing us into penury seem much more important to me. If the affairs of Arabs and Israelis is your only concern, then naturally you wouldn’t be able to support either major party in the US.

    I am surprised that fellow UNZzer’s haven’t noticed the strange similarity of the activities of Antifa to another, older organization, the Jewish Defense League (JDL).

    Here is the history of the JDL up to 1995 from none other than the ADL (Anti Defamation League) itself.

    https://www.adl.org/education/resources/profiles/jewish-defense-league

    Notice the extreme levels of violence that the the “old” JDL employed and how they seem to resemble those now used by Antifa today .

    You will notice that for some strange reason, the ADL seems to be quite reluctant to update this section to include the even more violent era after 1995 when it was under the leadership of Irv Rubin. The JDL seemed to vanish from ADL view after Rubin’s arrest in 2001 and his conviction for the attempted bombing of Congressman Darrel Issa’s office.

    And yes, the JDL still exists. Here is the still active website of the Canadian version of the JDL. Notice the clenched fist symbol on the opening page.

    http://www.jdl-canada.com/

    Until recently, the North American JDL was led by this guy:

    You just repeated the same argument I understood before — and rejected — I don’t get it.

    I know the story behind the statue; the point is, DeSantis endorsed, even embraced, the decision — I know Obama is a hypocrite, a stuffed shirt — I know what the ‘dems’ have done, and can imagine what they are likely to do in the future.

    No, the ‘affairs of Arabs and Israelis’ are not my ‘only concern’ — in fact, I don’t give a damn about Israel or the Arabs, per se — my concern is American politicians who show excessive deference to Israel and Jews — I thought I made that clear.

    Taxes in other western nations are higher than in the US; in many cases, a LOT higher — rather than being ‘taxed into penury’, Americans have been turned into debt slaves: later this decade, interest on the debt will surpass defense spending to become the second largest federal budget item — empires usually have slaves, right?

    Check which party has controlled Congress and occupied the White House the majority of the time since 1980 — why should I give those people another chance? — go ahead, ‘vote harder’ for the chamber of commerce, as long as they come legally party.

  86. Does the President have the power to grant pardons for offences committed in Washington D.C.?

    I would suspect that he doesn’t.

    linkUltimately, conservatism has failed to conserve anything and there’s not much use in debating conservative policies because conservatism will not exist in any meaningful sense in this country after the current crop of Fox News viewers die. Populist nationalism is the future.

    You’re too metaphysical for me. I thought I called blm thugs black supremacists.

    As for “neo-fascist” or “proto-fascist,” who are you, Jonah Goldberg? I never speak of leftists as “fascists.” Nothing could be less accurate than calling leftists “fascists.”

    He did go along with the law, but I’m not sure if he could have legally stopped the statue replacement.

    I see, you’re ‘not sure’ — well, let’s think about that for a minute.

    Note it was a law, passed and then signed by a Republican (LOL) governor.

    Wikipedia/Florida Legislature

    Per Wikipedia (I assume the info there is accurate), the FL legislature is bicameral, consisting of a Senate and House of Representatives — currently, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the Florida Senate 24 – 16, and in the Florida House of Representatives 77 – 42 — obviously, those are clear majorities, albeit not veto proof since FL is a 2/3 override state (link), but that would not have been an issue; presumably DeSantis would have signed any such legislation.

    Simple question: Why didn’t a Republican in the FL legislature, perhaps an ally or friend of DeSantis, introduce another piece of legislation voiding the previous one which called for removal and replacement of the statue? — with such large Republican majorities, it should have passed easily, right?

    And it’s worth noting that during the session when the law to remove/replace the statue was passed (and signed by a Republican governor), Republicans in FL also held clear majorities in both chambers.

    You are either naive or disingenuous.

    People like you who refuse to hold Republicans accountable, or insist the party have any real ideological standards, are part of the problem.

    But go ahead, ‘vote harder’ for Republicans.

    Okay, I guess you want to continue the discussion. Yes, the repubs should have voted again and stopped the statue switch. I agree. However, if that “bicameral” legislature was controlled by the dems they would be passing reparation laws, raising taxes, forcing homosexuality and transgenderism into the schools. Affirmative action would be even worse and crime would be going through the roof as sentences were reduced and bail removed. Sometimes you have to go with the better devil. That’s the way the world works.

  93. @Nicholas Stix

    The word “fascist” is a catch-all term of scorn for whoever you dislike. For 30 years Communists have been called “fascists.”

    During the Duke Lacrosse Hoax I sometimes posted at the Lie Stoppers Forum. One time William Anderson who wrote many good articles denouncing the persecution of the Duke players, made a post calling the various leftist academics, columnists, etc “fascists.”

    I posted a reply pointing out they were left-wingers and asked Anderson why didn’t he call them “communists,” which was closer to, if not actually what they actually were. He replied something to the effect, “That’s what you have to call them because people understand the term.”

    IMO it was a weak reply by a man who was usually pretty direct.
