From my new column in Taki’s Magazine, here’s my book review of Any Ngo’s bestseller Unmasked exposing Antifa:

Merrick Garland Is in the Dark about Antifa
Steve Sailer

February 24, 2021

When asked if he regards the endless attempts by Antifa rioters to burn down the federal courthouses in Portland and Seattle as acts of domestic extremism and terrorism, Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee to be Attorney General, replied:

So an attack on a courthouse while in operation, trying to prevent judges from actually deciding cases, that plainly is, uhm, domestic extremism, uhm, domestic terrorism. An attack simply on a government property at night…or any other kind of circumstances, is a clear crime and a serious one and should be punished. I don’t mean…I don’t know enough about the facts of the example you’re talking about, but that’s where I draw the line. One is…both are criminal, but one is a core attack on our democratic institutions.

After all, how can anyone expect an Attorney General-designate to know enough facts about attacks on the federal judicial system that kept happening night after night?

It was after his bedtime.

Seriously, if you watched only the carefully curated national news, you’d have gotten the impression that (a) Antifa doesn’t exist; (b) Antifa is a civic betterment movement led by the public-spirited Wall of Moms; and (c) The peaceful protesters of Antifa were the Gandhi-like victims of Trumpian brutality.

On the other hand, some of us who are Pacific time zone night owls watched hundreds of Andy Ngo videos of what was happening in Seattle and Portland during the wee hours long after the national media had called a lid on their coverage of the Peaceful Protests. In Ngo’s simple video footage, the Antifada sure looked extremist and terrorizing.

Read the whole thing there.

  1. Pop onto youtube and listen to his deceitful and evasive non-answers to Josh Hawley in the Senate on whether or not he would actually enforce the law along the border. I don’t know the exact link. Just search Hawley questions Garland on border.

    The man doesn't know. He hasn't thought about it. He assumes the answer to be yes...but he doesn't know the conditions surrounding it. He's had no experience whatsoever in that area of law.

    Leave Garland alone!

    The fun thing is, Garland has one Liar eye and one Honest Eye. And he blinks rapidly to try to hide his true emotions.

    If I went into a job interview not knowing an answer to a single question...

    Josh Hawley should have just called him out on it and said 'What do you know Garland?' 'You know this is a job interview...and you know you haven't known the answers to any question I've asked right? That means your unqualified.'

    Call them out, grab their muzzles and rub their noses in it

    Mitch McConnell is going to be one of the Republicans voting to confirm Garland. Who knows maybe he feels they should let him have it after they blocked him from the Supreme Court. Given the quality of what Gorsuch has done on the court that might have been less damaging than having Garland as AG.

    Merick Garland seems like an odd choice by Biden for AG. Garland strikes me as an ineffectual academic-type who is loyal to the party, but not to the President per se. But any President who isn't stupid should want a personally loyal "wingman" like Eric Holder was for Obama or RFK was for his brother.

  4. And worst of all, the Right’s one big riot made our “betters” look bad.

  5. randomly throw bricks through the windows of the Kenosha Kumon learning center

    Ngô says it was Wauwatosa. But, hey, all those Potawatomi names sound the same. We need a board game for this, Riotopoly say. “Go directly to jail; do not pass Ngô.”

    …demonstrators frequently throw water bottles at the police, which appears almost harmless on TV.

    Don’t be silly. They’re full of BPA and other things that lower sperm counts, and are environmentally irresponsible to boot. I bet Antifa doesn’t even recycle them.

    After all, unlike hundreds of the left’s riots over the past year, the right’s one big riot happened in broad daylight.

    At least they left the Kumon franchise intact. Of course, it’s only a brick’s stone’s throw from the Vice President’s residence, next to the Afghan consul, and across from the Chinese embassy. Wisconsin Ave. is decidedly safer than Wisconsin, at least in the cities.

  7. I don’t know enough about the facts of the example you’re talking about

    I don’t know how they can get away with comments like this. The Congressional hearings with all the social media giants was similar. Just an obvious lie – there is no way Garland doesn’t know the facts about the endless rioting over the summer, there is no way Zuckerberg, Dorsey, etc. didn’t know the details about section 230, or how their algorithms work, etc. – but the congressman just let it slide. It’s infuriating. Follow-up on your question. If he really doesn’t know about Antifa, he has no business being AG, and if he is lying to you, even more reason to vote against him.

    People know most about what interests them. Garland doesn’t know much about the crimes of BLM and Antifa because he’s not interested in weaponizing the law against them the way he is against conservatives.

    Oh yes, but he does know about white nationalists, even the ones that don't exist.

    One of the things I have noticed about people on the left is that they are expert at not noticing their own bad behavior. If he is truly that much against "hate" he should know about Antifa. He is obviously not a stupid man and he has an intense interest in riots. And if he doesn't know he should shut up and go read a book.

  9. But in January, Trump, with his power of positive thinking mindset, pressed his (and the right’s) luck one time too many, leading to the ridiculous events of Jan. 6, which the media will make sure will live in infamy.

    I guess I don’t quite get why this event should be so important after all. It did not make much of a difference. Not least because the establishment had made sure long before that the election would be “secured” (or – fortified / TIME Magazine) by “any means possible” (Hillary Clinton, as quoted by you time and time again). To state that includes saying, that Trump did not – as you write, lose the election, but that he lost the by all means possible fortified activities happening during the election.

    And I’d be more reluctant with regard to what happened at and in the Capitol. This was a – mostly peaceful – – if rather desperate – – act of political protest. I would not call that a riot, but rather a Go In or a protest. Scott Adams called it with good reasons a slap on the back of the establishment. To claim, like the New York Times did, that officer Sicknick was killed by a protester, throwing a fire extinguisher, is unsubstantiated. As a matter of fact, The NYT did retract this story.

    Yes, Trump's "power of positive thinking mindset" led him to have a pointless rally which would accomplish nothing even if it went well. Furthermore, it was certain leftist provocateurs would show up, causing violence.

    No matter what happened, the MSM would go full bore and blame it on Trump and his supporters. Again, Trump would be leaving the White House in two weeks anyway.

    The cover of their 1978 album "Tell Us The Truth' is a classic:

    Mirroring the hit British TV cop show of the time, 'The Sweeney' - a show which unabashedly featured be-suited macho cops carrying out some rather 'heavy-handed' interrogations of suspects, the album cover features an disembodied hand and arm, in what appears to be a spartan police custody room, pointing an accusatory finger at young, tearaway white cockney youth - of a type which simply does not exist anymore in the Metropolis.

  12. I don’t mean…I don’t know enough about the facts of the example you’re talking about, but that’s where I draw the line. One is…both are criminal, but one is a core attack on our democratic institutions.

    What will happen after the Rittenhouse trial? Will ‘fa be told to stay inside? Will a “lone white wolf” event during a demonstration be used to tell the ‘fa that playing is now over in the Age of Biden?

    Capitol intrusion was mostly conservative cope because MAGA roughnecks are substantially better-looking on average than Antifa hooligans.

    There were quite a few people hanging around in Capitol offices who didn’t look good at ALL. Some of them seemed to be inside even before the large contingent of MAGA arrived. Led by people who apparently change ideology on a daily basis. Then professional actors take to the scene.

    RT writes:

    Why was Capitol police chief’s request for National Guard denied ahead of riot? Republicans ask Nancy Pelosi

    When Republicans attempted to obtain more information about what happened, they were met with “obstruction and inability to produce and preserve information” by House staff appointed by Pelosi. Worse yet, some of the material the Republicans requested was recently provided only to House Judiciary Democrats, the letter added.

    Hmm, hmm.

    Biden supports 9/11-style commission to ‘investigate’ US Capitol riot, as suggested by Pelosi, Graham, & others

    A constant pattern: if you want to bury something in plain daylight and lie in front of running cameras, set up a “commission”.

    Also:

    As it turned out, Antifa didn’t fight like the Paris Commune of 1871. Instead, the cops cleared the insurrectionists out of their six downtown blocks in under an hour.

    Don’t laugh. “Commune” style events are certainly going to occur sooner rather than later.

    Assuming Rittenhouse is going to be found not guilty and the course of the trial will tend clearly in that direction, the judicial process will simply be ignored by the Dems/media/et al. It will disappear into a black hole just as the Assange trial, for its own reasons, receives almost no coverage. The same is true of the revelation that the Capitol Police officer probably did not die a violent death at the hands of "insurrectionists."

    Will Antifa be told to stay inside? Well, they were told that last summer when it looked like their rampages might have an effect on the election outcome. Antifa has mostly been kept well leashed except when cultural conservatives are trying to assert their rights as at Charlottesville. They'll be kept on a spare diet so that when Lady Pelosi of Alta California who puts the hate in Haight-Ashbury, commands, "Unleash the hounds!" they'll be ready to run.

    The Volkswagen Beetle was originally called the KDFwagen, Kraft Durch Freude.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strength_Through_Joy
    Workers could have money deducted from their pay to a savings account until they had enough for a new Beetle. However, there were never enough Beetles made for any worker to ever get theirs, and the few pre-WW2 Beetles went to Party officials. During the war the VW chassis was the underpinning for the Wehrmacht’s Jeep, the Kubelwagen, that was eventually sold to civilians as The Thing. Purportedly after WW2 the Volkswagen design and factory were offered to the British as war reparations but they declined and continued making cars like the Austin 7 and Morris Minor.
    When I owned a VW people were puzzled because I referred to my car as a KDFwagen.

    Both, but mainly digital likely for legal reasons. Hotspots like Seattle and Portland are much more likely to offer in-person stuff.

    Ngo points out a video captured by Project Veritas on “self defense” classes that were largely offensive in nature. Often these training courses were offered in “safe spaces” for Antifa like leftist bookstores. There are also Antifa recommended PDFs for a wide assortment of purposes. Like which computer programs to use to hide/diminish your digital footprint. (I remember one was “Signal.”)

    >Given how similar the tactics used by the HK rioters and Antifa, I’ve wondered all along if there are connections.

    Ideologically, not really: I've spent time around the kinds of people who probably were in masks rioting in a past life. With few exceptions, they aren't really what you'd have called well-adjusted people. Didn't get that impression of the Hong Kong rioters, many of whom seemed like conventional if declassed bourgeois types.

    Unfortunately, Antifa being publicly endorsed by a lot of mainstream outlets in the US not long after official endorsement of the Hong Kong protesters probably makes it even harder to wholly dismiss what Beijing has to say about the American hand in HK.

    Antifa seems to have been extraordinarily ineffective as a terrorist organization if it failed to burn down a single federal courthouse during the course of a whole summer.

    I would have thought it would have taken its roadmap from the exploits of Timothy McVeigh, who single-handedly destroyed a federal building and broad daylight.

    Either that, or it wasn't really trying very hard to destroy Federal buildings, and was just going through the motions supposed to get TV coverage and Épater la bourgeoisie.

    Anyway, any self-respecting international terrorist organization would have done a much better job.

    I would not be surprised if Antifa were to be expelled from the International Organization of Terrorist Organizations after such a poor showing in 2020 and will be disqualified from participating in terrorist actions at the next Olympic games.

  19. From the article

    As it turned out, I was wrong: The right behaved surprisingly well throughout stressful 2020, with virtually no mass shootings or Mostly Peaceful Protests. In contrast, after Memorial Day, BLM and Antifa rioted about 600 times.

    And Trump still lost.

    Yet, it was close, with Trump coming within 34,000 votes of tying 269–269 in the Electoral College, which would have meant he’d win in a state-by-state vote in the House, assuming the inevitable anti-Trump mayhem didn’t lead to a color revolution coup.

    It’s quite obvious in retrospect that Trump was set up to lose narrowly no matter how people voted. Heck, you should read that article in Time if nothing else.

    A question for you (and Steve): does Ngo's book go into much detail about how the Antifa functionaries are trained? Is it mostly on-site, or are they sent away to learn from 'professionals'?

    I ask because during the endless Hong Kong riots in 2019 there were many reports that leaders among the rioters had been sent to something called the 'Oslo Freedom Forum'. Given how similar the tactics used by the HK rioters and Antifa, I've wondered all along if there are connections.

    Both, but mainly digital likely for legal reasons. Hotspots like Seattle and Portland are much more likely to offer in-person stuff.

    Ngo points out a video captured by Project Veritas on “self defense” classes that were largely offensive in nature. Often these training courses were offered in “safe spaces” for Antifa like leftist bookstores. There are also Antifa recommended PDFs for a wide assortment of purposes. Like which computer programs to use to hide/diminish your digital footprint. (I remember one was “Signal.”)

    But in January, Trump, with his power of positive thinking mindset, pressed his (and the right’s) luck one time too many, leading to the ridiculous events of Jan. 6, which the media will make sure will live in infamy.
     
    I guess I don't quite get why this event should be so important after all. It did not make much of a difference. Not least because the establishment had made sure long before that the election would be "secured" (or - fortified / TIME Magazine) by "any means possible" (Hillary Clinton, as quoted by you time and time again). To state that includes saying, that Trump did not - as you write, lose the election, but that he lost the by all means possible fortified activities happening during the election.

    And I'd be more reluctant with regard to what happened at and in the Capitol. This was a - mostly peaceful - - if rather desperate - - act of political protest. I would not call that a riot, but rather a Go In or a protest. Scott Adams called it with good reasons a slap on the back of the establishment. To claim, like the New York Times did, that officer Sicknick was killed by a protester, throwing a fire extinguisher, is unsubstantiated. As a matter of fact, The NYT did retract this story.

All the arts – literature, drama, painting, music and architecture will lend this process beautiful form. More correctly, the shell in which the cultural construction and self-education of Communist man will be enclosed, will develop all the vital elements of contemporary art to the highest point. Man will become immeasurably stronger, wiser and subtler; his body will become more harmonized, his movements more rhythmic, his voice more musical. The forms of life will become dynamically dramatic. The average human type will rise to the heights of an Aristotle, a Goethe, or a Marx. And above this ridge new peaks will rise. – Leon Trotsky, Literature and Revolution.

    Years ago, when the “Twilight” vampire YAF series and the “Hunger Games” YAF series were a big deal, I boycotted both of them for various moral reasons. But recently I broke down and watched them, and was rather surprised: “Twilight” while a bit shallow, is actually rather good, esp visually, and “The Hunger Games” to my surprise, is utterly brilliant, the best and most complex (and accurate) political-cultural satire of our time. My head was spinning. Also it doesn’t hurt that it has Jennifer Lawrence, for my money the greatest screen presence of this generation, and Woody Harrelson and Stanley Tucci and Julianne Moore, some of the best character actors around. I was totally surprised at how good and smart it all was.

    So, for those keeping score in these hopeless Nero-esque days, who is the better emblem of our times:

    Jennifer Lawrence as the tragic, hopelessly wounded Mockingjay, who is nevertheless a heroine despite herself;

    or Kristen Stewart as the budding vampiress Bella Swan, who actually kinda sorta gets everything she wants, in a “white/vampire privilege” sort of way?

    Indeed, this whole "I know nothing" technique, a la Sgt Schultz, was pioneered by Supreme Court nominees (or rather, those coaching them). The trick is that arguably, replying "I'd have to know the specifics of a case before rendering an opinion" is just common sense. But this was expanded to "I have no particular opinion on that" referring to abortion or something else that everyone has an opinion on. Now it's become "Antifa? Never heard of it. Can you spell that for me?" And let's not forget Biden's "The public has no right to know my opinion."

    What will happen after the Rittenhouse trial? Will 'fa be told to stay inside? Will a "lone white wolf" event during a demonstration be used to tell the 'fa that playing is now over in the Age of Biden?

    Capitol intrusion was mostly conservative cope because MAGA roughnecks are substantially better-looking on average than Antifa hooligans.

     

    There were quite a few people hanging around in Capitol offices who didn't look good at ALL. Some of them seemed to be inside even before the large contingent of MAGA arrived. Led by people who apparently change ideology on a daily basis. Then professional actors take to the scene.

    Why was Capitol police chief’s request for National Guard denied ahead of riot? Republicans ask Nancy Pelosi


    When Republicans attempted to obtain more information about what happened, they were met with “obstruction and inability to produce and preserve information” by House staff appointed by Pelosi. Worse yet, some of the material the Republicans requested was recently provided only to House Judiciary Democrats, the letter added.
     
    Hmm, hmm.

    Biden supports 9/11-style commission to ‘investigate’ US Capitol riot, as suggested by Pelosi, Graham, & others

    A constant pattern: if you want to bury something in plain daylight and lie in front of running cameras, set up a "commission".

    Antifa are almost 100% Anglo. Obviously there’s lots of mixed race produce but, as my upcoming results will show, Antifa is a “WASP” problem when we measure surnames.

    If Biden gets an open Supreme Court spot to fill I doubt he will nominate Garland, who is 68-years-old.

    Four of the last five Democratic SCOTUS nominees have been Jewish. When Biden promised to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court, I joked that he would probably nominate a black Jewish woman. Right on time, we started hearing that one name on his shortlist is California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger who - wouldn't you know it? - is the daughter of a black mother and a Jewish father.

    Like so many other blacks the Democrats push to the top, she isn't even descended from American slaves. Her mother is from Jamaica.

    Stephen Breyer, 82, is the justice most likely to retire. He may learn a lesson from Ginsburg and retire while he knows he can be replaced by a Democrat. But apparently he is in good health and could stay on for several years. If so Biden may not get to nominate anyone to the Court.

    Well, they are still finding Nazi remainders in remote corners of the US:

    US deports 95-year-old Nazi guard to Germany… where he won’t be prosecuted

    In 1940, he was 20 years old.


    Touching down in Frankfurt, the nonagenarian Nazi was questioned by police but not arrested, as German prosecutors had dropped their case against him last year, after they could not prove his complicity in any abuse or killings.

    As time passes and the number of living World War II veterans dwindles, the prosecution of aging Nazis has become a largely symbolic gesture. In the US, Jewish “Nazi hunter” Eli Rosenbaum oversees these cases as Director of Human Rights Enforcement in the Justice Department. Prosecuting cases like Berger’s, Rosenbaum’s department has deported more than 100 elderly Nazis since its inception in 1979, more than authorities in all other countries of the world combined.

    In Germany, where the Holocaust is still a potent source of national shame [willingly?], the government widened the scope of complicity a decade ago, and has since prosecuted more than 200 people for alleged involvement in Nazi crimes, according to a recent New York Times report. This month alone a 95-year-old woman was charged with 10,000 counts of accessory to murder from her time as a concentration camp secretary, and a 100-year-old former SS concentration camp guard was charged with aiding and abetting 3,518 murders at the Sachsenhausen death camp.

    Helfman has absolutely zero to do with Garland (why don't you bring up the USS Liberty while you are at it?) but you make it sound as if she fired the bullet ("one of the assassins") whereas her actual crime was that she acted as the pretend wife in a safe house that the conspirators had set up. Her sentence was commuted from execution to life imprisonment in a penal colony. She was pregnant at the time of her sentencing and gave birth in prison. Soon after she died as a result of infection and her baby died as well. Conditions in Czarist prisons were not good - being sent to prison was pretty much a death sentence in and of itself.

    A very inappropriate analogy. Helfman was spared because of her pregnancy.

    But, even more important, she was a member of Russian far-left terrorist organization Narodnaya Volya, which had nothing to do with anything "Jewish"- either re its predecessors or successors. Those members & a few leaders of NV, later SR, were anarchist Russians who wanted some type of agrarian socialism in Russia & were absolutely devoid of anything "ethnic Jewish" (except ancestry of some of its members).

    Such groups are doomed to failure because anarchism never works in practice. Just, there was not some hidden "Jewish agenda" behind their activity. Unlike Garland, who seems to be some kind ethnic Israeli loyalist- at least to some degree- while, at the same time, preaching the gospel of multiracial & multicultural American "proposition nation", which is nothing short of a societal suicide.

    Antifa is (among other things) a refuge for mental illness, giving a sense of empowerment and moral elevation to significant segments of the population whose emotional barriers keep them from receiving validation in more conventional ways.

    Is it a terrorist "organization"? Probably not. But, do it's adherents engage in terrorist activities? That's a different question. Would leftists consider southern white demonstrators who intimidated black students, voters or marchers in the 1960's as "terrorists"? Would it matter if those demonstrators actually belonged to the klan or not? With that perspective in mind, you can see that some definitions of terrorist have nothing directly to do with the burning down of buildings. They have more to do with intimidation, and engaging in enough violence to shut down Trump rallies in Chicago and California prior to the 2016 election would probably qualify as intimidation of the "democratic institutions" that Merrick Garland mentioned in the interview.

    Remember how John Boehner cried like a girl when he got the speakers hip? We feel embarrassment or disgust for men like this, but maybe distrust is the right reaction.

    According to the ex-chief of the Capitol Police and other U.S. Capitol law enforcement officials the January 6th protesters “came prepared for war” with weapons, radios and climbing gear.

    To my understanding the weapons seized (stun guns, a crossbow, a guy with pistol, etc.) where found in the vehicles of people stopped in the D.C. National Mall area and not on any of the people who entered the Capitol. At least from the arrest reports so far.

    So radios and climbing gear are now considered “going to war”? Unless, of course, it’s at night in Portland or Seattle or Dupont Circle. Remember kids, next time you’re shopping at REI, ‘see something, say something!’

    Security officials testify Capitol rioters ‘came prepared for war’

    US Capitol security officials who were ousted in the wake of the 6 January attack on Congress have blamed intelligence failures for the breach.

    Testifying to a Senate committee, the officials said that the rioters “came prepared for war” with weapons, radios and climbing gear.

    Steve,

    The *original* 'skinhead band' of the late 1970s UK 'skinhead revival' were 'Sham69', fronted by one Jimmy Pudsey, with such anthems as 'Hurry Up, Harry'.
    The now defunct British 'music newspaper' 'Sounds' - and in particular the journalist Gary Bushnell - promoted the genre of so called 'Oi music', with a whole host of imitator bands.
    Latterly 'Skrewdriver' fronted by Ian Donaldson, took the fun, beer and camaraderie out of 'Oi' and replaced it with more of a hard edged message.

    Too soon to comment on the guilt of the Rosenbergs? OK, what about Hesya Helfman* (one of the assassins of Czar Alexander II)? Never heard of her or this Czar fellow, aye? Just know there are lots of brave, amazing ”change agents” in Russia working for bread and peace, huh?


    * this sh!t is about as new and fresh as dirt. Helfman had her death sentence commuted after a campaign on her behalf by the usual do-gooder Western intellectuals and literati. Just like the French anarchist who nearly assassinated French premier Georges Clemenceau. You can bet your bottom dollar President Ptah Kamal-hunter Biden II will be dragging 95-year old alums of the Capital Hill Party before the docket if they are able. Yet how many times did we hear that the radical brats who bombed post offices and ROTC recruitment centers in the ‘70’s, then spent the next 30 years hiding from justice, had “suffered enough” and should be given clemency? My mostly peaceful bomb-throwing, your very very scary insurrection which, even if the Cossacky abduction and rape of honorary converso AOC never went through the formality of actually happening, was still so redolent of it I will never-ever-ever get over it?

    Helfman has absolutely zero to do with Garland (why don’t you bring up the USS Liberty while you are at it?) but you make it sound as if she fired the bullet (“one of the assassins”) whereas her actual crime was that she acted as the pretend wife in a safe house that the conspirators had set up. Her sentence was commuted from execution to life imprisonment in a penal colony. She was pregnant at the time of her sentencing and gave birth in prison. Soon after she died as a result of infection and her baby died as well. Conditions in Czarist prisons were not good – being sent to prison was pretty much a death sentence in and of itself.

    No. The legal principle is well established, if you materially aid in the planning commission or cover up of a crime, you're guilty of the crime itself.

  65. Antifa’s tactics are cleverly designed to look mostly peaceful on national TV. For example, demonstrators frequently throw water bottles at the police, which appears almost harmless on TV. But what viewers don’t know is that they’ve frozen the normally flimsy bottles rock-hard.

    The reason viewers don’t know is because the media don’t tell them. Because the media are on the same side as Antifa.

  66. Garland is a lawyer (and a very good one) and in response to a question made a legalistic point about the distinction between trying to stop a trial in progress during the day, which he would consider to be terrorism and attempting to damage a Federal building at night, which is a crime but perhaps not the same crime.

    Would the Capitol Hill “insurrectionists” have been regarded differently if they attacked the Capitol building at night when Congress was not in session? I think so.

    There’s no doubt that Garland is a liberal and that he’s not the man that most people here would want to be the Attorney General. But he is also a very fair minded man who is committed to the law. If you are looking for Biden nominees to attack, there are plenty of nasty Leftists that he is trying to nominate but Garland is not one of them. By any standard he is one of Biden’s better choices. I realize Steve has to write about SOMETHING for his Taki column but trying to make hay out of Garland’s measured answer to this question is not going to get you far.

    I agree with this. I love Trump, maybe am even a Trump Diehard, but not a Trump Bitterender willing to spark a civil war over a second term for The Donald. Since Biden “won” he is allowed to pick who he wants to run his administration, and Garland is certainly 100-times preferable to 250 lbs. of Wakanda Forever waddling attitude like Stacey Abrams (Garland is also smart enough and old timey-highbrow liberal enough to understand and be embarrassed by unprincipled special pleading).

    But apparently not here. BLM 2.0 and its Antifa auxiliary special forces are the textbook definition of domestic terrorism. Garland making up the night vs. day distinction- would he therefore not have considered the burning of all those empty black churches in the middle of the night in the 90’s, had that been the result of actual malfeasance, acts of terrorism?? Or how about saying that since BLM/Antifa were effectively the paramilitary forces of one half of the political establishment in 2020 (cf. the charges brought against ex-tough-on-crime black lady LA DA’s husband for ‘gun-waving’ at a BLM/Antifa mob that appeared on their doorstep in the middle of the night) that such state-sponsorship effectively negates its terroristic nature since terrorism can only be directed at the state, not by it?

    The very good would be for Garland to apologize on behalf of the Democratic establishment for egging on BLM 2.0 and ruining the lives of so many innocent people at the rioting’s epicenter. The merely OK would be for Garland to tacitly agree to rein in AntiFa/BLM while at the same time letting-go of the Capital Hill Party. The Bad is for him to bring down the hammer on the Capital Hill Party participants AND make chicken-sh!t excuses for why BLM/Antifa are mostly peaceful- la-la-la.

    History shows that honorable action and adherence to a code by both sides in a conflict tends to temper it. Failure to adhere to a code, and even open flaunting of one, tends to sow bitterness and begin a cycle of reprisal. Again, as a moderate and someone who thinks Biden should be a allowed a normal Presidency without any talk of “resistance” or obstruction, etc. (there will be more elections soon enough!) is it too much to task the other side show a little character instead of hiding their a$$es behind weasel distinctions that have no logic, have no precedent, and are not even empirically true?

    Maybe I'm misinformed, but my recollection is that Merrick Garland was the DoJ fixer, the point man, the narrative manager and the lead prosecutor in the Oklahoma City bombing case, wherein many leads, lose ends and contradictory facts were buried. If you buy the official story that a truck bomb out front destroyed several massive internal support columns, then OK. I don't. My opinion is that OKC was the original white supremacist/domestic terrorist false flag op. Contra info on OKC has been thoroughly scrubbed. Nothing new under the sun.

  67. My impression is that Antifa foot soldiers tend to be downscale whites with antisocial personalities, ugly, nasty people such as meth addicts and child molesters who have had problems with the law.

    My impression is that prominent people who cheer on such people were losers of the Battle of Prom-ingrad in high school and NEVER GOT OVER IT. C’mon- when you see Samantha Bee, Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, etc. on the screen and one of those canned fake smiles comes over their faces and their pupils dilate just enough so that a window onto their souls opens for a split-second, doesn’t- “‘This! Me being the center of attention. Me being able to [email protected] for as long as you are alive with what is normal and comforting in your world. This is my revenge for being picked-on and ignored just because I was funny-looking and awkward as a teenager. This is my time, bitch!”- just scream out at you?

    I guess it’s as archetypal as John & Paul, or Paul & John. If you have a nice pleasing round face and musical talent you tend to- ceteris paribus- write pleasing, sentimental ballads that make everyone around you feel good. If you have loads of musical talent but look as if you have one of Henry VIII’s foxing hounds in your blood lineage, you tend to be less agreeable, more edgy, want to poke at the world a bit with your sharp stick so that you are at the center of the new swirling perturbation. Then you go off to Japan, spot an interesting sea sponge attached to the side of a dolphin meat trawler, and dump your English wife so that you can spend the next decade promoting the sea sponge’s performance art career.

    Antifa seems to have been extraordinarily ineffective as a terrorist organization if it failed to burn down a single federal courthouse during the course of a whole summer.

    I would have thought it would have taken its roadmap from the exploits of Timothy McVeigh, who single-handedly destroyed a federal building and broad daylight.

    Either that, or it wasn't really trying very hard to destroy Federal buildings, and was just going through the motions supposed to get TV coverage and Épater la bourgeoisie.

    Anyway, any self-respecting international terrorist organization would have done a much better job.

    I would not be surprised if Antifa were to be expelled from the International Organization of Terrorist Organizations after such a poor showing in 2020 and will be disqualified from participating in terrorist actions at the next Olympic games.

    A very inappropriate analogy. Helfman was spared because of her pregnancy.

    But, even more important, she was a member of Russian far-left terrorist organization Narodnaya Volya, which had nothing to do with anything “Jewish”- either re its predecessors or successors. Those members & a few leaders of NV, later SR, were anarchist Russians who wanted some type of agrarian socialism in Russia & were absolutely devoid of anything “ethnic Jewish” (except ancestry of some of its members).

    Such groups are doomed to failure because anarchism never works in practice. Just, there was not some hidden “Jewish agenda” behind their activity.

My only point was that for well over 100 years intellectuals, literati, and other assorted good thinkers have always excused, diminished and argued away the crimes of ‘their’ guys (from Czarist assassins, to anarchist hitmen, to 70’s bomb-thrower fugitives who got all those soft-focus profile pieces on NPR aired about them during the Bush II years about all the amazing, socially-conscious do-good they’d accomplished during their years in hiding, and hadn’t they suffered enough?, to Obama pardoning those violent Puerto Rican separatists during his last days in office). If you remember during the Aughts Joschka Fischer- a real OG, police smash-mouthin’ AntiFa granddaddy- became Foreign Minister of Germany! My point was that after over 100 years of leniency and special-pleading for ‘their’ terrorists, this vindictiveness, this hysteria, this full-spectrum brainwashing (e.g. inviting and then conspicuously pointing out during the broadcast a couple of Capitol Hill police in a special ‘hero’s box’ at the Super Bowl) is infuriating!

    I guess I don't quite get why this event should be so important after all. It did not make much of a difference. Not least because the establishment had made sure long before that the election would be "secured" (or - fortified / TIME Magazine) by "any means possible" (Hillary Clinton, as quoted by you time and time again). To state that includes saying, that Trump did not - as you write, lose the election, but that he lost the by all means possible fortified activities happening during the election.

    And I'd be more reluctant with regard to what happened at and in the Capitol. This was a - mostly peaceful - - if rather desperate - - act of political protest. I would not call that a riot, but rather a Go In or a protest. Scott Adams called it with good reasons a slap on the back of the establishment. To claim, like the New York Times did, that officer Sicknick was killed by a protester, throwing a fire extinguisher, is unsubstantiated. As a matter of fact, The NYT did retract this story.

    The Volkswagen Beetle was originally called the KDFwagen, Kraft Durch Freude.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strength_Through_Joy
    Workers could have money deducted from their pay to a savings account until they had enough for a new Beetle. However, there were never enough Beetles made for any worker to ever get theirs, and the few pre-WW2 Beetles went to Party officials. During the war the VW chassis was the underpinning for the Wehrmacht’s Jeep, the Kubelwagen, that was eventually sold to civilians as The Thing. Purportedly after WW2 the Volkswagen design and factory were offered to the British as war reparations but they declined and continued making cars like the Austin 7 and Morris Minor.
    When I owned a VW people were puzzled because I referred to my car as a KDFwagen.

    Garland is a lawyer (and a very good one) and in response to a question made a legalistic point about the distinction between trying to stop a trial in progress during the day, which he would consider to be terrorism and attempting to damage a Federal building at night, which is a crime but perhaps not the same crime.

    Would the Capitol Hill "insurrectionists" have been regarded differently if they attacked the Capitol building at night when Congress was not in session? I think so.

    There's no doubt that Garland is a liberal and that he's not the man that most people here would want to be the Attorney General. But he is also a very fair minded man who is committed to the law. If you are looking for Biden nominees to attack, there are plenty of nasty Leftists that he is trying to nominate but Garland is not one of them. By any standard he is one of Biden's better choices. I realize Steve has to write about SOMETHING for his Taki column but trying to make hay out of Garland's measured answer to this question is not going to get you far.

    I agree with this. I love Trump, maybe am even a Trump Diehard, but not a Trump Bitterender willing to spark a civil war over a second term for The Donald. Since Biden “won” he is allowed to pick who he wants to run his administration, and Garland is certainly 100-times preferable to 250 lbs. of Wakanda Forever waddling attitude like Stacey Abrams (Garland is also smart enough and old timey-highbrow liberal enough to understand and be embarrassed by unprincipled special pleading).

    But apparently not here. BLM 2.0 and its Antifa auxiliary special forces are the textbook definition of domestic terrorism. Garland making up the night vs. day distinction- would he therefore not have considered the burning of all those empty black churches in the middle of the night in the 90’s, had that been the result of actual malfeasance, acts of terrorism?? Or how about saying that since BLM/Antifa were effectively the paramilitary forces of one half of the political establishment in 2020 (cf. the charges brought against ex-tough-on-crime black lady LA DA’s husband for ‘gun-waving’ at a BLM/Antifa mob that appeared on their doorstep in the middle of the night) that such state-sponsorship effectively negates its terroristic nature since terrorism can only be directed at the state, not by it?

    The very good would be for Garland to apologize on behalf of the Democratic establishment for egging on BLM 2.0 and ruining the lives of so many innocent people at the rioting’s epicenter. The merely OK would be for Garland to tacitly agree to rein in AntiFa/BLM while at the same time letting-go of the Capital Hill Party. The Bad is for him to bring down the hammer on the Capital Hill Party participants AND make chicken-sh!t excuses for why BLM/Antifa are mostly peaceful- la-la-la.

    History shows that honorable action and adherence to a code by both sides in a conflict tends to temper it. Failure to adhere to a code, and even open flaunting of one, tends to sow bitterness and begin a cycle of reprisal. Again, as a moderate and someone who thinks Biden should be a allowed a normal Presidency without any talk of “resistance” or obstruction, etc. (there will be more elections soon enough!) is it too much to task the other side show a little character instead of hiding their a$$es behind weasel distinctions that have no logic, have no precedent, and are not even empirically true?

    Guess which one he'll choose? Biden's stated motivation for running for President was that he was motivated by Charlottesville. He mentioned fighting "white supremacy" more than any other topic at his inauguration, and has mentioned it in public consistently. Garland is the point man for that effort. It's a new "War on Terrorism," this time, within the U.S.

    I've been telling people I know who are involved in Second Amendment advocacy, white advocacy, or anything else to the left of CNN, exactly what to expect in the next few years. People they know who are big talkers on the Internet will disappear for a little while. Then they'll suddenly reappear and try to egg other people on into talking about illegal things. Or else people will suddenly come out of the woodwork wanting to talk about the same illegal things. They'll be informants who have been flipped and turned out by federal authorities under Garland's direction to catch others. Taking them up on those offers to talk about illegal things will later be described in charging documents as conspiracy.

    I just read the column, which was well written, as usual. I don't know exactly when the Takimag blog published your column, but Peak Stupidity somewhat coincidentally, posted "When the masks come off" last evening, written by me at the park in the afternoon. You are mentioned, in the footnote:

    It's another point I disagree with Steve Sailer on. He had always maintained (well before this Kung Flu) that laws against wearing face masks in public should be enforced. As a Libertarian, and especially in the age of ubiquitous cameras, I strongly disagree.
     
    The point of my post is that it's pretty weird how we didn't hear anything about the Capitol Gang running around maskless. You'd think those COVID germs would have been the biggest worry, spreading all over the People's House like that. My contention is that the higher up echelons of the ctrl-left, such as the Pelosi's and such, really don't believe this Kung Flu is the next Black Plague. They have their "OMG! INSURRECTION AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!" narrative going, pretty well, I might add, and they left their panic card face down on the table. They can use it again anytime though.

    I've been trying to avoid antagonizing people here with comments on the PanicFest, but I'm sorry, there was a tie-in here, as the face mask wearing has been a strange thing over the last year, between the COVID, then the BLM/antifa, then back to the COVID on steroids.

    OK, minor quibble here:

    You could immediately tell that the theory that an Antifa false-flag operation had engineered the foolish Jan. 6 Capitol intrusion was mostly conservative cope because MAGA roughnecks are substantially better-looking on average than Antifa hooligans.
     
    Really, Steve, the Millennials will still call you names, even if you do use words like "cope" and "cringe" as nouns, which are both pretty retarded-sounding to me. It's like your Dad in 1970 coming into your room and saying "awesome model airplane, Stevie" ... "now clean your damn room!"

    Antifa seems to have been extraordinarily ineffective as a terrorist organization if it failed to burn down a single federal courthouse during the course of a whole summer.

    I would have thought it would have taken its roadmap from the exploits of Timothy McVeigh, who single-handedly destroyed a federal building and broad daylight.

    Either that, or it wasn't really trying very hard to destroy Federal buildings, and was just going through the motions supposed to get TV coverage and Épater la bourgeoisie.

    Anyway, any self-respecting international terrorist organization would have done a much better job.

    So you think Antifa’s Mission Statement was to demolish a courthouse, perhaps so they could pave that paradisaical spot and put up a parking lot. (Then collect the fees.)

    This is obvious lazy crap (I get that this went over your head Jack but the cautious lawyer used ideological terms and slogans: is that legal caution?), especially in hanging it on the pre-planned hysteria over the “insurrection.” Had there been no Trump supporters there they would have been bussed or photoshopped in. Had no deaths occured the response would be exactly the same. Exactly the same. Look at them lie about a stroke victim and give him a Soviet hero worship ritual as they shove his family aside. Right now two Michigan men are looking at hard time for having and expressing opinions: “voter suppression.”

  99. Truly unbelievable. Still, Mr. Statistics, Noticing Man, the most Observant Human ever, pretending Biden won the popular vote.

    Biden couldn’t draw a dozen voters to a rally. Trump couldn’t draw less than a thousand times that number. Biden only won swing states with statistically impossible numbers and vote totals. Biden had the greatest vote total ever? In what alternate universe does a basement hiding alzheimer’s patient win the popular vote over a guy who can draw well over a hundred thousand to the deepest blue Virginia.

    I flat out do not believe that a numbers guy like you cannot see the clear patterns of fraud and deceit.

    Antifa seems to have been extraordinarily ineffective as a terrorist organization if it failed to burn down a single federal courthouse during the course of a whole summer.

    I would have thought it would have taken its roadmap from the exploits of Timothy McVeigh, who single-handedly destroyed a federal building and broad daylight.

    Either that, or it wasn't really trying very hard to destroy Federal buildings, and was just going through the motions supposed to get TV coverage and Épater la bourgeoisie.

    Anyway, any self-respecting international terrorist organization would have done a much better job.

    I would not be surprised if Antifa were to be expelled from the International Organization of Terrorist Organizations after such a poor showing in 2020 and will be disqualified from participating in terrorist actions at the next Olympic games.

    Helfman has absolutely zero to do with Garland (why don't you bring up the USS Liberty while you are at it?) but you make it sound as if she fired the bullet ("one of the assassins") whereas her actual crime was that she acted as the pretend wife in a safe house that the conspirators had set up. Her sentence was commuted from execution to life imprisonment in a penal colony. She was pregnant at the time of her sentencing and gave birth in prison. Soon after she died as a result of infection and her baby died as well. Conditions in Czarist prisons were not good - being sent to prison was pretty much a death sentence in and of itself.

    Antifa is (among other things) a refuge for mental illness, giving a sense of empowerment and moral elevation to significant segments of the population whose emotional barriers keep them from receiving validation in more conventional ways.

    Is it a terrorist “organization”? Probably not. But, do it’s adherents engage in terrorist activities? That’s a different question. Would leftists consider southern white demonstrators who intimidated black students, voters or marchers in the 1960’s as “terrorists”? Would it matter if those demonstrators actually belonged to the klan or not? With that perspective in mind, you can see that some definitions of terrorist have nothing directly to do with the burning down of buildings. They have more to do with intimidation, and engaging in enough violence to shut down Trump rallies in Chicago and California prior to the 2016 election would probably qualify as intimidation of the “democratic institutions” that Merrick Garland mentioned in the interview.

    Garland is a lawyer (and a very good one) and in response to a question made a legalistic point about the distinction between trying to stop a trial in progress during the day, which he would consider to be terrorism and attempting to damage a Federal building at night, which is a crime but perhaps not the same crime.

    Would the Capitol Hill "insurrectionists" have been regarded differently if they attacked the Capitol building at night when Congress was not in session? I think so.

    There's no doubt that Garland is a liberal and that he's not the man that most people here would want to be the Attorney General. But he is also a very fair minded man who is committed to the law. If you are looking for Biden nominees to attack, there are plenty of nasty Leftists that he is trying to nominate but Garland is not one of them. By any standard he is one of Biden's better choices.

    It may have been casuistry but I assure you he didn't learn this from the Jesuits.

    The dictionary defines "Talmudic" as characterized by or making extremely fine distinctions or hairsplitting.

    I assure you that one of the main jobs of a litigator is making Talmudic distinctions. Half of the time, the precedents are against you and the only way for you to win is to distinguish the facts in your case from the prevailing precedents. You have to say that the difference between what your client did and the existing precedents which seemingly fits the same fact pattern is like (you should excuse the expression) DAY and NIGHT so that the precedent does not apply in your client's case.

    I think Garland did a fine job with this, perhaps the best job that was possible given the facts, but I admit that this begs the question of why and since when did Antifa become, in effect, a client for whom he was seemingly carrying water while at the same time he promised to go after the Capitol "terrorists" with the full force of the Federal law enforcement establishment behind him? I don't think that this is a decision that he made on his own without instruction from above. Lawyers are like the #1 oldest profession in that they are paid to take a position that does not necessarily reflect their personal sentiments.

    It’s sort of like the election fraud issue: There may not have been widespread fraud; but there was decisive fraud. Likewise, the clear majority of the Capitol invaders were authentic MAGA people; but was there also a significant and decisive presence of agitators and provocateurs?

Even Glenn Beck would acknowledge several years after the murders that he had no idea of this event.

    I just read the column, which was well written, as usual. I don't know exactly when the Takimag blog published your column, but Peak Stupidity somewhat coincidentally, posted "When the masks come off" last evening, written by me at the park in the afternoon. You are mentioned, in the footnote:

    It's another point I disagree with Steve Sailer on. He had always maintained (well before this Kung Flu) that laws against wearing face masks in public should be enforced. As a Libertarian, and especially in the age of ubiquitous cameras, I strongly disagree.
     
    The point of my post is that it's pretty weird how we didn't hear anything about the Capitol Gang running around maskless. You'd think those COVID germs would have been the biggest worry, spreading all over the People's House like that. My contention is that the higher up echelons of the ctrl-left, such as the Pelosi's and such, really don't believe this Kung Flu is the next Black Plague. They have their "OMG! INSURRECTION AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!" narrative going, pretty well, I might add, and they left their panic card face down on the table. They can use it again anytime though.

    I've been trying to avoid antagonizing people here with comments on the PanicFest, but I'm sorry, there was a tie-in here, as the face mask wearing has been a strange thing over the last year, between the COVID, then the BLM/antifa, then back to the COVID on steroids.

    OK, minor quibble here:

    You could immediately tell that the theory that an Antifa false-flag operation had engineered the foolish Jan. 6 Capitol intrusion was mostly conservative cope because MAGA roughnecks are substantially better-looking on average than Antifa hooligans.

    Assuming Rittenhouse is going to be found not guilty and the course of the trial will tend clearly in that direction, the judicial process will simply be ignored by the Dems/media/et al. It will disappear into a black hole just as the Assange trial, for its own reasons, receives almost no coverage. The same is true of the revelation that the Capitol Police officer probably did not die a violent death at the hands of “insurrectionists.”

    Will Antifa be told to stay inside? Well, they were told that last summer when it looked like their rampages might have an effect on the election outcome. Antifa has mostly been kept well leashed except when cultural conservatives are trying to assert their rights as at Charlottesville. They’ll be kept on a spare diet so that when Lady Pelosi of Alta California who puts the hate in Haight-Ashbury, commands, “Unleash the hounds!” they’ll be ready to run.

    Indeed, this whole “I know nothing” technique, a la Sgt Schultz, was pioneered by Supreme Court nominees (or rather, those coaching them). The trick is that arguably, replying “I’d have to know the specifics of a case before rendering an opinion” is just common sense. But this was expanded to “I have no particular opinion on that” referring to abortion or something else that everyone has an opinion on. Now it’s become “Antifa? Never heard of it.

    Guess which one he'll choose? Biden's stated motivation for running for President was that he was motivated by Charlottesville. He mentioned fighting "white supremacy" more than any other topic at his inauguration, and has mentioned it in public consistently. Garland is the point man for that effort. It's a new "War on Terrorism," this time, within the U.S.

    I've been telling people I know who are involved in Second Amendment advocacy, white advocacy, or anything else to the left of CNN, exactly what to expect in the next few years. People they know who are big talkers on the Internet will disappear for a little while. Then they'll suddenly reappear and try to egg other people on into talking about illegal things. Or else people will suddenly come out of the woodwork wanting to talk about the same illegal things. They'll be informants who have been flipped and turned out by federal authorities under Garland's direction to catch others. Taking them up on those offers to talk about illegal things will later be described in charging documents as conspiracy.

And the drive to find and root out scary-seeming "white extremists" is something the new administration and its allies would much rather have as a salient topic than most other potential issues: like the pandemic, the economy, the closed schools, the election, etc. Biden has not had a particularly strong first month in office. Even issues Democrats generally want to push are getting dragged into intraparty squabbles (two examples: "police reform" and gun control).

    Steve's old meme about the "KKKrazy glue holding the coalition of the fringes together" has likely never been more true than now. Going after all us white devils is the only thing that can keep significant portions of the Democratic base from being at each others' throats. Look at the response to the attacks on Asians. They can't openly say "we're not going to do anything because blacks outrank you in our hierarchy of sanctified victims." So they have to say "we all must unite against 'white nationalism.'"

  126. What’s interesting is that Garland is no doubt aware of the maxim that “Courthouse doors are never closed” meaning that the Courthouse must be open at all times for emergency applications to the Court. In my experience – albeit in a different United States District Court – hearings are often held in the afternoon which last into the evening at the convenience of the assigned Judge. So Garland can’t possibly believe that the Judges, clerks, staff, FPS, Marshals and the like all toot a Pterodactyl horn and surf down a Brontosaurus back out of the U.S. Courthouses and into their cars at 5 p.m. sharp like Fred Flintstone. Moreover, there is typically a remaining security detail of FPS and/or Marshals to secure the structure – so if Antifa had been successful in burning down a Courthouse from ground level you’d almost certainly imperil some Federal personnel at any time.

    Finally, it’s just a fact that if Antifa burned down a U.S. Courthouse one evening, that act would most certainly interrupt the functioning of the Court the next day.

    Maybe this guy is a fine jurist, but he’s not really a terrific advocate given the distinctions without differences he’s trying to make – although it seems that his confirmation is assured so he may not care to bother as the only thing at stake is the legitimacy of the Department of Justice in the eyes of roughly half the Nation.

  127. So, I guess that Garland is unaware that people actually work in buildings after business hours, you know like custodians and security. Custodial staff are always those employees that politicians never have anything to do with, except when they point out that they are usually POC and in low paying jobs. Setting fire to an occupied building is a heinous crime, a capital crime in some jurisdictios. But, hey what do I know, he’s a judge.

    I assure you that one of the main jobs of a litigator is making Talmudic distinctions. Half of the time, the precedents are against you and the only way for you to win is to distinguish the facts in your case from the prevailing precedents. You have to say that the difference between what your client did and the existing precedents which seemingly fits the same fact pattern is like (you should excuse the expression) DAY and NIGHT so that the precedent does not apply in your client’s case.

    I think Garland did a fine job with this, perhaps the best job that was possible given the facts, but I admit that this begs the question of why and since when did Antifa become, in effect, a client for whom he was seemingly carrying water while at the same time he promised to go after the Capitol “terrorists” with the full force of the Federal law enforcement establishment behind him?

    So Judge Garland isn't in Kansas any more and is expected to pull away the curtain to reveal that the attorney general is not really a puppet of the White House?

  129. My question for Merrick:

    In Trump vs, Hawaii, the Korematsu (internment) case was finally before the court. Indirectly, but close enough. Justice Roberts’ majority decision: Korematsu was “overruled by history.” Thus, Korematsu was NOT legally overruled. (Sotomayor and Ginzberg dissenting). Internment remains the law of the land.

    In Korematsu, Justice Jackson, dissenting, wrote that Korematsu “would lie about, like a loaded weapon, ready to be invoked upon a plausible showing of necessity.” Many now worry about reeducation camps, and the weapon lies about.

    Do you acknowledge that internment is the law of the land? What circumstances would justify invoking it against a group? What would be the defining characteristics of that group? Or do you promise, here today, that you would never fire that loaded weapon?

  130. @Jack D
    Garland is a lawyer (and a very good one) and in response to a question made a legalistic point about the distinction between trying to stop a trial in progress during the day, which he would consider to be terrorism and attempting to damage a Federal building at night, which is a crime but perhaps not the same crime.

    Would the Capitol Hill "insurrectionists" have been regarded differently if they attacked the Capitol building at night when Congress was not in session? I think so.

    There's no doubt that Garland is a liberal and that he's not the man that most people here would want to be the Attorney General. But he is also a very fair minded man who is committed to the law. If you are looking for Biden nominees to attack, there are plenty of nasty Leftists that he is trying to nominate but Garland is not one of them. By any standard he is one of Biden's better choices. I realize Steve has to write about SOMETHING for his Taki column but trying to make hay out of Garland's measured answer to this question is not going to get you far.

As Obama said, elections have consequences and one of those consequences is that a Democrat AG is expected to come down on the side of policies that Democrats and especially the Democrat in the White House favor (within the limits of the law, but as you can see from his answers, prosecutors have a LOT of prosecutorial discretion - everyone in America commits three felonies/day* but the government only chooses to go after certain individuals). Even Democrat (and Republican) appointed judges do this despite being appointed for life. The AG serves at the pleasure of the President so he is even more constrained as to how far off the reservation he can go. It follows from this that ANY Biden nominee sitting in that chair would have given a similar answer, although perhaps not as skillfully as Garland, just as any Trump nominee had to give answers that reflected Trump policies. If a Trump nominee had bravely announced that he was planning on releasing all the immigration detainees based on his personal beliefs he would not have remained the Trump nominee, nor can Garland say the opposite. That's just the reality.

    I’m glad Ngo’s book has gotten popular. Antifa are dangerous, and much of what’s been said about them in right wing media up to now are constructed boogiemen which have little in common with the actual movement. Ngo’s book dispels much of that, though I have quite a few quibbles with some of his main points which I think oversimplify some things in some ways, and attempts to create an overarching historical narrative that’s erroneous and counterproductive.

    On the nuts and bolts level he’s mostly right. Why do I say this? Because for awhile in the late 90s early 2000s I was a hanger-on in those circles. I got to see what they were beta testing in the PacNorthwest before I cleaned myself up and moved back home. Now after 30 years of honing methods, the core militants are scarily effective and disciplined true believers operating in a sea of druggie mooks like I used to be.

    Part of that effectiveness is why I’m using an Anon handle for this (long-time regulars here can figure out who I am likely). I know they monitor these spaces and they are doxxers par excellance.

    One big thing I really want people to understand about them, and why I fear them so much: they are not puppets dancing to the strings of their paymasters (and don’t ask me who they are because I only have mildly educated guesses on who’s cutting the checks). Certainly I believe there are deep state and corporate sponsors… But at the same time I think those sponsors are riding a tiger they don’t fully understand. This isn’t a movement you can throw money at until it becomes astroturfed. At the core are intensely committed yet deeply pragmatic left-Anarchists who despise any form of statist institutionalism, be it conservative, religious, capitalist, and yes, even liberal or Marxist-Leninist.

    I fear Antifa like I fear the Khmer Rouge, ISIS, or the original Nazis. Because they truly believe they can build a perfect world, and they are willing to kill and demolish everything that prevents that vision from culmination.

    Among LGBTQ adults, a majority or 54.6% identify as bisexual, the poll shows. About a quarter, or 24.5%, identify as gay; 11.7% as lesbian; 11.3% as transgender.
     
    I have two friends with daughters who claim to be "bisexual." Both of these young women have always struck me as fairly girlish, but they were raised by leftist parents. Claiming to be bisexual to "make a stand" was probably almost encouraged in their homes. I suspect that both of these young women, if they ever do marry, will marry men.

    There's a lot of posing going on out there right now. Claiming to be bisexual doesn't require you to ever commit to anything (or anyone). And of course transgender is all the rage right now. So it shouldn't be too shocking that numbers for both bisexuals and transgenders are up.

    According to the article, there are more than twice as many bisexual women (4.3%) as bisexual men (1.8%), which aligns with my suspicions. A lot of these women are just silly girls looking for attention. A woman claiming to be bisexual can be a turn-on for a guy. It holds out the promise of a potential threesome. Girls aren't turned on by the idea of sleeping with two men at once, though, and the possibility of sleeping with a man who has slept with other men may only conjure up the possibility of acquiring a veneral disease, which run rampant in the gay community.

Soon, just the beta males will remain with no crazy women around them to try to defend or impress.

    Getting mouthy hallucinating women off the antifa front lines will significantly undermine the morale of the beta male losers.

    Antifa violence arises from mental distress and sociopathy, not machismo. In addition, many women are present for this non-sense (female violence and crime rose at a higher rate than male violence and crime over the last 50+ years), and younger female mental health has seriously taken a beating in the Great Awokening (females, after all, are moe likely to believe in Victim Narratives).

    You’re probably correct, but hasn’t it already been going on for decades? it’s the same as Steve has noted about white racism and racist crime: the demand (by the media, SPLC, justice department, pearl clutchers) far outstrips supply.
     
    The difference now is you have a presidency the raison d'être of which is explicitly "get whitey." I don't believe that's ever happened before. And the drive to find and root out scary-seeming "white extremists" is something the new administration and its allies would much rather have as a salient topic than most other potential issues: like the pandemic, the economy, the closed schools, the election, etc. Biden has not had a particularly strong first month in office. Even issues Democrats generally want to push are getting dragged into intraparty squabbles (two examples: "police reform" and gun control).

    Steve's old meme about the "KKKrazy glue holding the coalition of the fringes together" has likely never been more true than now. Going after all us white devils is the only thing that can keep significant portions of the Democratic base from being at each others' throats. Look at the response to the attacks on Asians. They can't openly say "we're not going to do anything because blacks outrank you in our hierarchy of sanctified victims." So they have to say "we all must unite against 'white nationalism.'"

    Garland is a lawyer (and a very good one) and in response to a question made a legalistic point about the distinction between trying to stop a trial in progress during the day, which he would consider to be terrorism and attempting to damage a Federal building at night, which is a crime but perhaps not the same crime.

    Would the Capitol Hill "insurrectionists" have been regarded differently if they attacked the Capitol building at night when Congress was not in session? I think so.

    There's no doubt that Garland is a liberal and that he's not the man that most people here would want to be the Attorney General. But he is also a very fair minded man who is committed to the law. If you are looking for Biden nominees to attack, there are plenty of nasty Leftists that he is trying to nominate but Garland is not one of them. By any standard he is one of Biden's better choices. I realize Steve has to write about SOMETHING for his Taki column but trying to make hay out of Garland's measured answer to this question is not going to get you far.

If you buy the official story that a truck bomb out front destroyed several massive internal support columns, then OK. I don’t.

    I never said that I knew his personal sentiments or whether he is personally sympathetic to Antifa, but he doesn't strike me as someone who would be, now that you mention it.

    However, as you say, his personal sentiments don't really matter. As Obama said, elections have consequences and one of those consequences is that a Democrat AG is expected to come down on the side of policies that Democrats and especially the Democrat in the White House favor (within the limits of the law, but as you can see from his answers, prosecutors have a LOT of prosecutorial discretion - everyone in America commits three felonies/day* but the government only chooses to go after certain individuals). Even Democrat (and Republican) appointed judges do this despite being appointed for life. The AG serves at the pleasure of the President so he is even more constrained as to how far off the reservation he can go. It follows from this that ANY Biden nominee sitting in that chair would have given a similar answer, although perhaps not as skillfully as Garland, just as any Trump nominee had to give answers that reflected Trump policies. If a Trump nominee had bravely announced that he was planning on releasing all the immigration detainees based on his personal beliefs he would not have remained the Trump nominee, nor can Garland say the opposite. That's just the reality.

    If Biden gets an open Supreme Court spot to fill I doubt he will nominate Garland, who is 68-years-old.

    Four of the last five Democratic SCOTUS nominees have been Jewish. When Biden promised to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court, I joked that he would probably nominate a black Jewish woman. Right on time, we started hearing that one name on his shortlist is California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger who – wouldn’t you know it? – is the daughter of a black mother and a Jewish father.

    Like so many other blacks the Democrats push to the top, she isn’t even descended from American slaves. Her mother is from Jamaica.

    Stephen Breyer, 82, is the justice most likely to retire. He may learn a lesson from Ginsburg and retire while he knows he can be replaced by a Democrat. But apparently he is in good health and could stay on for several years. If so Biden may not get to nominate anyone to the Court.

    I don't know anything about Kruger or her politics (I presume liberal but the same would be true of any other Biden nominee) but genetically she sounds like exactly the kind of Negro you would want to have on the Supreme Court - someone who has the "necessities" , as Jimmy the Greek once said ( to the detriment of his career). Full blooded ADOS blacks who have the necessary brainpower to serve on the Supreme Court are about as rare as Jewish NFL cornerbacks, so if you can get someone who can plausibly check the "black" box and yet has a European quality brain, that's a lot better than putting someone unqualified up there.

    The only danger is that such marginally black people are insecure about their black identity and sometimes feel that they have to prove it by being extra blackety-black-black. However Kruger is married to a white guy so she doesn't sound like much of a Black Nationalist.

    Kruger got the best of both worlds - African hair AND a Jewish nose.

But recently I broke down and watched them, and was rather surprised: "Twilight" while a bit shallow, is actually rather good, esp visually, and "The Hunger Games" to my surprise, is utterly brilliant, the best and most complex (and accurate) political-cultural satire of our time. My head was spinning. Also it doesn't hurt that it has Jennifer Lawrence, for my money the greatest screen presence of this generation, and Woody Harrelson and Stanley Tucci and Julianne Moore, some of the best character actors around. I was totally surprised at how good and smart it all was.

    So, for those keeping score in these hopeless Nero-esque days, who is the better emblem of our times:

    Jennifer Lawrence as the tragic, hopelessly wounded Mockingjay, who is nevertheless a heroine despite herself;

    Among LGBTQ adults, a majority or 54.6% identify as bisexual, the poll shows. About a quarter, or 24.5%, identify as gay; 11.7% as lesbian; 11.3% as transgender.

    I have two friends with daughters who claim to be “bisexual.” Both of these young women have always struck me as fairly girlish, but they were raised by leftist parents. Claiming to be bisexual to “make a stand” was probably almost encouraged in their homes. I suspect that both of these young women, if they ever do marry, will marry men.

    There’s a lot of posing going on out there right now. Claiming to be bisexual doesn’t require you to ever commit to anything (or anyone). And of course transgender is all the rage right now. So it shouldn’t be too shocking that numbers for both bisexuals and transgenders are up.

    According to the article, there are more than twice as many bisexual women (4.3%) as bisexual men (1.8%), which aligns with my suspicions. A lot of these women are just silly girls looking for attention. A woman claiming to be bisexual can be a turn-on for a guy. It holds out the promise of a potential threesome. Girls aren’t turned on by the idea of sleeping with two men at once, though, and the possibility of sleeping with a man who has slept with other men may only conjure up the possibility of acquiring a veneral disease, which run rampant in the gay community.

    Strategically there are still too many women on the antifa front lines. If women are on the front lines of the protest, it’s the police's fault. They’re allowing antifa to play this as a game.

They’ll rationalize why they quit, but trust the broken nose will be the operative transformative element. Soon, just the beta males will remain with no crazy women around them to try to defend or impress.

    Getting mouthy hallucinating women off the antifa front lines will significantly undermine the morale of the beta male losers. Again, it is harsh, and not easy to do, mostly, but Police need to get to punching these women terrorists in the face every time it’s legally warranted. It’s a major obstacle to undermining these sad idiots. Police, just let your roundhouse fly while thinking of a better America. If you just can’t do it, then put some policewomen on your front line who wouldn’t mind a little practice collapsing noses.

    Among LGBTQ adults, a majority or 54.6% identify as bisexual, the poll shows. About a quarter, or 24.5%, identify as gay; 11.7% as lesbian; 11.3% as transgender.
     
    I have two friends with daughters who claim to be "bisexual." Both of these young women have always struck me as fairly girlish, but they were raised by leftist parents. Claiming to be bisexual to "make a stand" was probably almost encouraged in their homes. I suspect that both of these young women, if they ever do marry, will marry men.

    There's a lot of posing going on out there right now. Claiming to be bisexual doesn't require you to ever commit to anything (or anyone). And of course transgender is all the rage right now. So it shouldn't be too shocking that numbers for both bisexuals and transgenders are up.

    According to the article, there are more than twice as many bisexual women (4.3%) as bisexual men (1.8%), which aligns with my suspicions. A lot of these women are just silly girls looking for attention. A woman claiming to be bisexual can be a turn-on for a guy. It holds out the promise of a potential threesome. Girls aren't turned on by the idea of sleeping with two men at once, though, and the possibility of sleeping with a man who has slept with other men may only conjure up the possibility of acquiring a veneral disease, which run rampant in the gay community.

    Of course. There is an old wisdom:

    1. a man proposes his wife to have sex, along with his buddy. Upon hearing that, she slaps him on the face & shouts: You bastard! Who do you think I am, a whore?

    2. a woman tells her husband she would like to get her bff to have a threesome. Husband feels his legs are shaking & he collapses. His final thought, while hitting the floor, is: I’ve died & have gone to the Heaven.

    A very inappropriate analogy. Helfman was spared because of her pregnancy.

    But, even more important, she was a member of Russian far-left terrorist organization Narodnaya Volya, which had nothing to do with anything "Jewish"- either re its predecessors or successors. Those members & a few leaders of NV, later SR, were anarchist Russians who wanted some type of agrarian socialism in Russia & were absolutely devoid of anything "ethnic Jewish" (except ancestry of some of its members).

    Such groups are doomed to failure because anarchism never works in practice. Just, there was not some hidden "Jewish agenda" behind their activity. Unlike Garland, who seems to be some kind ethnic Israeli loyalist- at least to some degree- while, at the same time, preaching the gospel of multiracial & multicultural American "proposition nation", which is nothing short of a societal suicide.

    Yes, and I am not the one making an issue of Helfman’s ethnic background here, even though you seem to be. My only point was that for well over 100 years intellectuals, literati, and other assorted good thinkers have always excused, diminished and argued away the crimes of ‘their’ guys (from Czarist assassins, to anarchist hitmen, to 70’s bomb-thrower fugitives who got all those soft-focus profile pieces on NPR aired about them during the Bush II years about all the amazing, socially-conscious do-good they’d accomplished during their years in hiding, and hadn’t they suffered enough?, to Obama pardoning those violent Puerto Rican separatists during his last days in office). If you remember during the Aughts Joschka Fischer- a real OG, police smash-mouthin’ AntiFa granddaddy- became Foreign Minister of Germany! My point was that after over 100 years of leniency and special-pleading for ‘their’ terrorists, this vindictiveness, this hysteria, this full-spectrum brainwashing (e.g. inviting and then conspicuously pointing out during the broadcast a couple of Capitol Hill police in a special ‘hero’s box’ at the Super Bowl) is infuriating!

    It’s even more depressing to think that this anti-white pro-terrorist will still be who the Democrats and the media present to us as a “moderate” that Republicans are supposed to be thrilled to accept as a Supreme Court nominee. And that the Republicans will accept him.
     
    If Biden gets an open Supreme Court spot to fill I doubt he will nominate Garland, who is 68-years-old.

    Four of the last five Democratic SCOTUS nominees have been Jewish. When Biden promised to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court, I joked that he would probably nominate a black Jewish woman. Right on time, we started hearing that one name on his shortlist is California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger who - wouldn't you know it? - is the daughter of a black mother and a Jewish father.

    Like so many other blacks the Democrats push to the top, she isn't even descended from American slaves. Her mother is from Jamaica.

    Stephen Breyer, 82, is the justice most likely to retire. He may learn a lesson from Ginsburg and retire while he knows he can be replaced by a Democrat. But apparently he is in good health and could stay on for several years. If so Biden may not get to nominate anyone to the Court.

    Replies: @Jack D

    I don’t know anything about Kruger or her politics (I presume liberal but the same would be true of any other Biden nominee) but genetically she sounds like exactly the kind of Negro you would want to have on the Supreme Court – someone who has the “necessities” , as Jimmy the Greek once said ( to the detriment of his career). Full blooded ADOS blacks who have the necessary brainpower to serve on the Supreme Court are about as rare as Jewish NFL cornerbacks, so if you can get someone who can plausibly check the “black” box and yet has a European quality brain, that’s a lot better than putting someone unqualified up there.

    The only danger is that such marginally black people are insecure about their black identity and sometimes feel that they have to prove it by being extra blackety-black-black. However Kruger is married to a white guy so she doesn’t sound like much of a Black Nationalist.

    Kruger got the best of both worlds – African hair AND a Jewish nose.

    Antifa seems to have been extraordinarily ineffective as a terrorist organization if it failed to burn down a single federal courthouse during the course of a whole summer.

    I would have thought it would have taken its roadmap from the exploits of Timothy McVeigh, who single-handedly destroyed a federal building and broad daylight.

    Either that, or it wasn't really trying very hard to destroy Federal buildings, and was just going through the motions supposed to get TV coverage and Épater la bourgeoisie.

    Anyway, any self-respecting international terrorist organization would have done a much better job.

    I would not be surprised if Antifa were to be expelled from the International Organization of Terrorist Organizations after such a poor showing in 2020 and will be disqualified from participating in terrorist actions at the next Olympic games.

    I assure you that one of the main jobs of a litigator is making Talmudic distinctions. Half of the time, the precedents are against you and the only way for you to win is to distinguish the facts in your case from the prevailing precedents. You have to say that the difference between what your client did and the existing precedents which seemingly fits the same fact pattern is like (you should excuse the expression) DAY and NIGHT so that the precedent does not apply in your client's case.

    I think Garland did a fine job with this, perhaps the best job that was possible given the facts, but I admit that this begs the question of why and since when did Antifa become, in effect, a client for whom he was seemingly carrying water while at the same time he promised to go after the Capitol "terrorists" with the full force of the Federal law enforcement establishment behind him? I don't think that this is a decision that he made on his own without instruction from above.

    “Let me ask you about assaults on federal property in places other than Washington, D.C. Portland, for instance,” Missouri Senator Josh Hawley said. “Do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal properties as acts of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism?”

    Garland said his personal view on the matter lined up with the statutory definition of terrorism.

    “My own definition, which is about the same as the statutory definition, is the use of violence or threats of violence in an attempt to disrupt democratic processes,” Garland replied. “So an attack on a courthouse while in operation, trying to prevent judges from actually deciding cases, that plainly is domestic extremism, domestic terrorism.”

    Soon after Sen. Hawley finished questioning Garland, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham again returned the focus to Portland. “Do you promise to defend the Portland courthouse against anarchists?” Graham asked. Garland repeated that attacking or damaging a federal building is a crime and anyone who does so will be prosecuted.

    I'm glad Ngo's book has gotten popular. Antifa are dangerous, and much of what's been said about them in right wing media up to now are constructed boogiemen which have little in common with the actual movement. Ngo's book dispels much of that, though I have quite a few quibbles with some of his main points which I think oversimplify some things in some ways, and attempts to create an overarching historical narrative that's erroneous and counterproductive.

    On the nuts and bolts level he's mostly right. Why do I say this? Because for awhile in the late 90s early 2000s I was a hanger-on in those circles. I got to see what they were beta testing in the PacNorthwest before I cleaned myself up and moved back home. Now after 30 years of honing methods, the core militants are scarily effective and disciplined true believers operating in a sea of druggie mooks like I used to be.

    Part of that effectiveness is why I'm using an Anon handle for this (long-time regulars here can figure out who I am likely). I know they monitor these spaces and they are doxxers par excellance.

    One big thing I really want people to understand about them, and why I fear them so much: they are not puppets dancing to the strings of their paymasters (and don't ask me who they are because I only have mildly educated guesses on who's cutting the checks). Certainly I believe there are deep state and corporate sponsors... But at the same time I think those sponsors are riding a tiger they don't fully understand. This isn't a movement you can throw money at until it becomes astroturfed. At the core are intensely committed yet deeply pragmatic left-Anarchists who despise any form of statist institutionalism, be it conservative, religious, capitalist, and yes, even liberal or Marxist-Leninist.

    I fear Antifa like I fear the Khmer Rouge, ISIS, or the original Nazis. Because they truly believe they can build a perfect world, and they are willing to kill and demolish everything that prevents that vision from culmination.

    A question for you (and Steve): does Ngo's book go into much detail about how the Antifa functionaries are trained? Is it mostly on-site, or are they sent away to learn from 'professionals'?

    I ask because during the endless Hong Kong riots in 2019 there were many reports that leaders among the rioters had been sent to something called the 'Oslo Freedom Forum'. Given how similar the tactics used by the HK rioters and Antifa, I've wondered all along if there are connections.

    >Given how similar the tactics used by the HK rioters and Antifa, I’ve wondered all along if there are connections.

    Ideologically, not really: I’ve spent time around the kinds of people who probably were in masks rioting in a past life. With few exceptions, they aren’t really what you’d have called well-adjusted people. Didn’t get that impression of the Hong Kong rioters, many of whom seemed like conventional if declassed bourgeois types.

    Unfortunately, Antifa being publicly endorsed by a lot of mainstream outlets in the US not long after official endorsement of the Hong Kong protesters probably makes it even harder to wholly dismiss what Beijing has to say about the American hand in HK.

    Why was Capitol police chief’s request for National Guard denied ahead of riot? Republicans ask Nancy Pelosi


    When Republicans attempted to obtain more information about what happened, they were met with “obstruction and inability to produce and preserve information” by House staff appointed by Pelosi. Worse yet, some of the material the Republicans requested was recently provided only to House Judiciary Democrats, the letter added.

Full blooded ADOS blacks who have the necessary brainpower to serve on the Supreme Court are about as rare as Jewish NFL cornerbacks, so if you can get someone who can plausibly check the "black" box and yet has a European quality brain, that's a lot better than putting someone unqualified up there.

    Steve's a bit like Charles Murray. He wants to stay in the good graces of respectable society. That's why he's willing to make fun of the system but not actually challenge it. (Steve often notes that he is read by the good and the great. He doesn't want to lose that.)

    Steve still wants a place at the table, not understanding (or maybe not accepting) that we need to flip the damn table over.

    At the end of the day, Steve is HBD aware, but that's not the same thing as pro-white.

    Wow, it's really incredible that every single instance of right wing violence is actually a false-flag operation. Has there ever been an action that cast the right wing in a bad light that was NOT a false flag? And how quickly the conspiracy theory community is able to get to the bottom of it - I mean that the blood stains are not even dry before the evidence is in and the operation can be pronounced to be a false flag.

    And the ability of the Federal government to cover up its involvement is unsurpassed. I mean, when Putin sends assassins to poison his enemies, they always make some blunder that reveals their identity, but the Federal assassins are perfect and leave no trail. It's funny because usually Federal agents strike me as a bunch of clowns but they must use a different, more competent bunch to conduct these false flag operations.

    I recall Sailer’s VDare radio interview on his Obama book.

    That Obama represented some kind of reformed anti-Soviet left that gained many followers (and money) after the 1960s. The powers that be utilized the skills of exiled Marxists extensively. Marxists in very low Soviet standing.

    The two primary ones being:

    Trotskyites

    The Frankfurt School

    These two heavily modified strains of Marxist thought constitute the driving forces within most Antifa chapters. It’s fairly safe to say they’re not taking their orders from Moscow.

  215. To see the inadequacy of the response to the BLM/antifa riots, you need only think what would happen if whites had protested with equal violence in their own interests. Imagine whole swathes of urban America being looted and torched in protest against immigration or black on white crime. It would be looked on as the biggest crisis to hit the US in decades, with editorials in major news outlets calling for the country to be put under martial law and “white supremacists” put into camps.

    Vietnamese Catholics were the elites that ran the government and military in the South. They were the class that had been educated by the French and thought that they were entitled to rule when the French left. The uneducated masses were mostly Buddhist.

    The Chinese left not so much because of the Sino-Vietnamese War but because they were the middleman minority group in Vietnam. Native Vietnamese were the peasant farmers and the Chinese ran the shops/businesses, same as in many Asian countries. Communists are not interested in having a bourgeois middle man class around, especially one from a different ethnic group.

    The other group that left were veterans of the S. Vietnamese Army, esp. officers and former government officials (thus disproportionately Catholics but by no means all). Even after getting out of the re-education camp, you and your family were marked as a "black" family. No chance of getting a decent job or for your kids to go to college.

Yeakey saw the same as he was dragging ten people out of the building so he knew the cover story was bs also -- and by pursuing the truth he paid with his life).:

    http://physics911.net/generalpartinreport/

    There is also zero chance Sgt. Yeakey committed suicide -- the actual physical evidence proved he was severely beaten and handcuffed at the time he was executed by a bullet to the head shot at a downward trajectory -- i.e. the pistol was not in his hand:

    https://thefreethoughtproject.com/okc-bombing-hero-terrance-yeakey/

    Your comment is not well taken also because anyone who is actually well read/informed knows that the FBI/Feds did exactly these same type of operations against the "Left" in the past (it was documented by Congressional Investigation by the way -- no "Conspiracy Theory") -- "Cointelpro" was used by them to infiltrate, frame up and murder various Black Panthers and others they decided to target, illegally, for whatever reason. Often their Agent Provocateurs were running these organizations at some point and encouraging illegal conduct -- much like what is widely believed to be what happened in OKC -- one of their operations they grew got out of hand -- either negligently or intentionally. There are questions as to whether this also happened at the recent Vegas shooting that has never been properly explained and in various other "incidents" that keep popping up.

    So this setting up of these "Events", unlike you comment, is something that transcends politics of phony "Left v. Right" bs -- what we are seeing is the involvement of a secret Government that operates outside of the Law to implement an Agenda -- currently it seems to be one aligned with the NWO Globalist Agenda but it really doesn't matter -- the fact is this is going on and anyone not a dullard, or in on it, should be concerned. Also concerned that someone like Merrick Garland who was in charge of the "investigation"/cover up in OKC will now no doubt be Attorney General -- a man who is telling us that "White Supremacists" are all over running amok and are our biggest problem after a year of Communist Burn, Murder, Looters actually burning down Cities with basically no Government opposition.

    Majority Mahayana Buddhist, diaspora or otherwise. Officially, Vietnam itself is today an atheist state and requires atheism for government jobs, but most Vietnamese will just lie about that on their applications and continue on in private: there's no Chinese-style drive to ensure compliance for government employees. Even during the RVN years, Christianity, while real, never reached South Korean levels of penetration and influence.

    Interestingly, many "Vietnamese" in the United States are ethnic Chinese (Hoa): they were targeted by the Communists in the immediate aftermath of the war for a mix of reasons, culminating in the Sino-Vietnamese War, which Vietnam arguably won.

    Vietnamese Catholics were the elites that ran the government and military in the South. They were the class that had been educated by the French and thought that they were entitled to rule when the French left. The uneducated masses were mostly Buddhist.

    The Chinese left not so much because of the Sino-Vietnamese War but because they were the middleman minority group in Vietnam. Native Vietnamese were the peasant farmers and the Chinese ran the shops/businesses, same as in many Asian countries. Communists are not interested in having a bourgeois middle man class around, especially one from a different ethnic group.

    The other group that left were veterans of the S. Vietnamese Army, esp. officers and former government officials (thus disproportionately Catholics but by no means all). Even after getting out of the re-education camp, you and your family were marked as a “black” family. No chance of getting a decent job or for your kids to go to college. You could stand at the side of the road and sell rice cakes or something – those were your career prospects. Better to take your chances on a boat because you had no future anyway.

    It was both. The VC (Vietnamese Communism was an intensely nationalistic affair to the point of xenophobia) were not averse to using negative racial stereotypes about the ethnic Chinese in their propaganda even when the PRC's relationship with Hanoi was more positive in the 1960s, which fell on fertile ground, and of course, the ethnic Chinese were disproportionately bourgeois, so they would have been targeted in 1975 at any rate.

    But what really tipped the scale was the deterioration of relations with the PRC, which didn't so much displace traditional Vietnamese stereotypes of the ethnic Chinese as much as melded with them. Much like Indonesia in the 1960s, the ethnic Chinese were viewed as a potential fifth column element by the Vietnamese government. This rather ignored the fact that the Chinese community had been there for centuries, and after 1949, China was like North Korea on a massive scale: nothing in, nothing out. But it also wasn't completely irrational given China's recent behavior in foreign policy over the past decade in Southeast Asia, despite it not having anything to do with its ethnic diaspora (who were, again, disproportionately "capitalist roaders" by any stretch).

    >Vietnamese Catholics were the elites that ran the government and military in the South. They were the class that had been educated by the French and thought that they were entitled to rule when the French left.

    Catholic-Buddhist tension and anti-government sentiment in general didn't disappear, but did sharply decline after the Tet Offensive. The various atrocities the Communists committed during a Buddhist religious holiday were viewed as blasphemous by socially conservative Buddhists in the South, and the Southern-originated Viet Cong favoring reunification on pseudo-equal terms were replaced by Northerners who wanted outright annexation.

    >The other group that left were veterans of the S. Vietnamese Army, esp. officers and former government officials (thus disproportionately Catholics but by no means all).

    This was true with the initial wave, but by the late 1970s and early 1980s, plenty of ordinary Kinh Vietnamese peasants were fleeing, whether in boats or being smuggled to Bangkok after the Khmer Rouge fell. As they well should have, given the near starvation conditions in Vietnam at the time. This is pretty critical to understand when looking at the differences between Americans of Vietnamese extraction and those of Korean or Taiwanese (largely lower middle class or student origins) background.

    Wow, it's really incredible that every single instance of right wing violence is actually a false-flag operation. Has there ever been an action that cast the right wing in a bad light that was NOT a false flag? And how quickly the conspiracy theory community is able to get to the bottom of it - I mean that the blood stains are not even dry before the evidence is in and the operation can be pronounced to be a false flag.

    And the ability of the Federal government to cover up its involvement is unsurpassed. I mean, when Putin sends assassins to poison his enemies, they always make some blunder that reveals their identity, but the Federal assassins are perfect and leave no trail. It's funny because usually Federal agents strike me as a bunch of clowns but they must use a different, more competent bunch to conduct these false flag operations. Maybe the fact that they can only use white men to infiltrate right wing organizations helps in that regard.

    Also the amount of structural engineering expertise in the conspiracy theory community is amazing!

    Replies: @Getaclue

    Are you trying to be a tool or it just comes naturally? There is zero argument against the evidence that bombs were in the Federal Building in OKC — the Air Force General, an expert in bombs/demolition, who documented it wasn’t some kind of “Conspiracy Theorist” LOL — he completely documented how the explosion occurred on the evidence and it has never been refuted in any way — because it can’t be– this is his actual report and his letter enclosing same to Congress along with his CV (Clearly the murdered Sgt. Yeakey saw the same as he was dragging ten people out of the building so he knew the cover story was bs also — and by pursuing the truth he paid with his life).:

    http://physics911.net/generalpartinreport/

    There is also zero chance Sgt. Yeakey committed suicide — the actual physical evidence proved he was severely beaten and handcuffed at the time he was executed by a bullet to the head shot at a downward trajectory — i.e. the pistol was not in his hand:

    https://thefreethoughtproject.com/okc-bombing-hero-terrance-yeakey/

    Your comment is not well taken also because anyone who is actually well read/informed knows that the FBI/Feds did exactly these same type of operations against the “Left” in the past (it was documented by Congressional Investigation by the way — no “Conspiracy Theory”) — “Cointelpro” was used by them to infiltrate, frame up and murder various Black Panthers and others they decided to target, illegally, for whatever reason. Often their Agent Provocateurs were running these organizations at some point and encouraging illegal conduct — much like what is widely believed to be what happened in OKC — one of their operations they grew got out of hand — either negligently or intentionally. There are questions as to whether this also happened at the recent Vegas shooting that has never been properly explained and in various other “incidents” that keep popping up.

    So this setting up of these “Events”, unlike you comment, is something that transcends politics of phony “Left v. Right” bs — what we are seeing is the involvement of a secret Government that operates outside of the Law to implement an Agenda — currently it seems to be one aligned with the NWO Globalist Agenda but it really doesn’t matter — the fact is this is going on and anyone not a dullard, or in on it, should be concerned. Also concerned that someone like Merrick Garland who was in charge of the “investigation”/cover up in OKC will now no doubt be Attorney General — a man who is telling us that “White Supremacists” are all over running amok and are our biggest problem after a year of Communist Burn, Murder, Looters actually burning down Cities with basically no Government opposition. Maybe your all in for that but sane people — “Right” or “Left” are not.

    The Deep State doesn't get off on breaking people for the sake of breaking people. They'll do it if they need to, and the Wokies are great tools to use to that effect. Antifa, on the other hand, not only get off on breaking people and things, it's literally at the core of their ideology. Right now the Deep State uses antifa as a tool, but that like playing with dynamite. Antifa know they're being used, and in return are using them.

    Yes, Sailer is being sardonic in points (b) and (c); the media I watch (NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt) did not make those sarcastic generalizations.

    Yet the reason the snark stings -- obviously -- is that it isn't far from the truth, either. Anybody who relied on NBC for their news would not know that Antifa is organized, or is committed to violence, or has committed violence.

    Vietnamese Catholics were the elites that ran the government and military in the South. They were the class that had been educated by the French and thought that they were entitled to rule when the French left. The uneducated masses were mostly Buddhist.

    The Chinese left not so much because of the Sino-Vietnamese War but because they were the middleman minority group in Vietnam. Native Vietnamese were the peasant farmers and the Chinese ran the shops/businesses, same as in many Asian countries. Communists are not interested in having a bourgeois middle man class around, especially one from a different ethnic group.

    The other group that left were veterans of the S. Vietnamese Army, esp. officers and former government officials (thus disproportionately Catholics but by no means all). Even after getting out of the re-education camp, you and your family were marked as a "black" family. No chance of getting a decent job or for your kids to go to college. You could stand at the side of the road and sell rice cakes or something - those were your career prospects. Better to take your chances on a boat because you had no future anyway.

    This description fits one of my priests. His father was an officer in SVA. Imprisoned. Later family maneuvers way to USA.

  255. It’s disingenuous to say that Garland is “in the dark” about antifa. That gives him cover, as if he’s being kept in the dark by someone. If he’s benighted on the subject of antifa, it’s a self inflicted condition; a matter of willful ignorance.

    I don’t know enough about the facts of the example you’re talking about
     
    I don't know how they can get away with comments like this. The Congressional hearings with all the social media giants was similar. Just an obvious lie - there is no way Garland doesn't know the facts about the endless rioting over the summer, there is no way Zuckerberg, Dorsey, etc. didn't know the details about section 230, or how their algorithms work, etc. - but the congressman just let it slide. It's infuriating. Follow-up on your question. If he really doesn't know about Antifa, he has no business being AG, and if he is lying to you, even more reason to vote against him.

    Oh yes, but he does know about white nationalists, even the ones that don’t exist.

    One of the things I have noticed about people on the left is that they are expert at not noticing their own bad behavior. If he is truly that much against “hate” he should know about Antifa. He is obviously not a stupid man and he has an intense interest in riots. And if he doesn’t know he should shut up and go read a book.

    You live a very sheltered life if you don't think that's healthy in the current climate. :)

    Can't provoke more group therapy sessions on Capitol Hill, can we? The schoolmarms have so much to do, like planning domestic COIN, furthering oligarchic looting, and furthering the cause of chemical castration behind their little wall.

    Antifa are almost 100% Anglo. Obviously there's lots of mixed race produce but, as my upcoming results will show, Antifa is a "WASP" problem when we measure surnames.

    It will be interesting to hear how "The Derb" and fellow Anglophiles respond to the evidence.

    I imagine it will be with silence. Dynamic silence.

    And the individual -- a top official in the antifa cell "Smash 'Racism' DC" -- who led the terrorist attack/ attempted home invasion on Tucker Carlson's house. He's a guy who usually goes by the name Jose “Chepe” Martin, but he's about as Mexican as "Pat" is Irish. His real name is Joseph Alcoff, and he's a halachically-certified member of the Tribe of Supreme Victims.

    See, when "Pat Hannigan*" claimed that "Antifa are almost 100% Anglo," he actually meant they were "Fellow Anglos":

    Pop onto youtube and listen to his deceitful and evasive non-answers to Josh Hawley in the Senate on whether or not he would actually enforce the law along the border. I don't know the exact link. Just search Hawley questions Garland on border.

    Garland is merely following a longstanding ethnic tradition. It’s called “pilpul.”

    Short explanation:

    Longer form — a surprisingly-coherent piece from PuffHo by some Sephardic Talmud expert who blames it all on the Ashkenazim:
