Planned mayhem is for me the accurate way to explain what has gone on across the country this weekend.
The Left lost on the phony "Russia" hoax, and on "impeachment", and has been losing on the "pandemic" & the lock downs, is doomed to lose with Biden and had no "burning" agenda to promote.
So they HAD to create one, manufacture one.
This is supposed to be their new "1968", and we all know how that went for the Left.
Today seems a "sober" Monday, but that is not coming from me. It's the mood I see coming from everywhere else.
Not being a TV news junkie (No ABC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC/NBC/NPR or Fox or BBC for me; EVER, AT ANY TIME, I haven't "seen" the mayhem, and don't care to. So I am not "sobered" by it.
And I won't be in the days ahead.
It is a play being put on for the Left to try to bring more sheeple to their "causes".
I suspect it is and will backfire.
Let me just ask: let's not entertain it. We've seen it all before.
And once Trump declares antifa to be a terrorist organization, with a lot more serious consequences than being locked up for a weekend, their membership will drop.
Yesterday, he did, And what I’ve seen on social media thus far, the Leftists are doubling down on it.
The Mayor of Atlanta is the only Democrat I feel is responding appropriately.
I’m wondering what will come next, because these riots are not working out well for the Left at all.
George Soros, open borders society. The dems support him, but, the responsible people are these.
“And once Trump declares antifa to be a terrorist organization, with a lot more serious consequences than being locked up for a weekend, their membership will drop.”
No. Being arrested and charged with something serious will be like martyrdom is to ISIS - a recruiting tool “because their ‘cause’ is just”. In fact this whole weekend has been a recruiting campaign for all branches of the Left, among the mayhem.
I am not a big fan of the mayor of Columbia but he seems to be doing ok so far.
All they lack are brown shirts.
you are absolutely out of your mind. these upper middle class white losers going to prison for ten years...a federal prison is not going to be a good recruitment tool. At all. this worked on KKK, Black Panthers, and Weather Underground.
Your memory must suck because Johnson won in 68.
I suspect the organizations are heavily layered, in order to fully insulate the power and money at the top.
Even if you are able to locate and arrest the guy handing out cash to rioters, you are probably one several layers up from the bottom, and a long long way down from the top. They’ve had a long time to establish their methods and vale their chains off communication and insulate cells of function from each other. Hell, it even looks like they have found ways to mobilize significant numbers of people across distances in short periods of time.
So if they weren’t already treating them like domestic (not completely domestic I suspect) terrorists or at least organized crime, then they’ve got a mountain to climb.
Go back to your history books. Johnson never ran for POTUS in 68. Nixon won.
Once Antifa is actually declared officially by the feds, they won’t be doubling down on sh**. As soon as they realize the IRS can take their stuff if they are associated with funding or being in a terrorist organization they will run.
IRS is scarier than FBI any day.
Your memory is bad.
After the Dims’ nightmare convention in Chicago, the old Dim party was dead, and Nixon won, defeating Hubert Humphrey. Four years later Nixon won in a landslide.
with current technology it won’t take long. Remember KKK, Black Panthers and Weather Underground were all basically dismantled by being declared and treated like domestic terrorists. It can and will work IF it’s done.
That might well be the most embarrassing post I have ever put up :-)
like The godfather said my anger is clouding my judgment. I’m off the board until this blows over. Good luck to all!
“you are absolutely out of your mind. these upper middle class white losers going to prison for ten years...a federal prison is not going to be a good recruitment tool. At all. this worked on KKK, Black Panthers, and Weather Underground.”
I disagree. It has worked very well, through those IN PRISON for the Black Nationalists, La Raza and others. The ANTIFA types are going to fit right in and they share many of the same critiques of the U.S. with those groups. From those in prison it is spread and reinforced with those they remain associated with out of prison (where by the way Muslims are a growing population as well).
“All they lack are brown shirts.”
Agreed. I think they just died their brown shirts black to try to disguise their true nature.
