  • David Horowitz: BLM/Antifa far more dangerous than '60s radicals

    08/05/2020 6:52:42 AM PDT · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 8/4/2020 | Jim Breslo
    No one knows leftist radicals better than David Horowitz, the former Marxist, Black Panther advocate and editor of the New Left's Ramparts magazine who had a political conversion and became a world-renowned conservative author and activist. He says Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Occupy Wall Street all seek the same thing: a progressive, aka socialist, revolution in America – and they are far closer to achieving it today than '60s radicals ever were. He expressed serious concern over the number of states creating a new category of crimes called "hate crimes." These are "thought crimes," he said. "This creates the...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | August 3, 2020 | Stephen Gutowski
    One of the country's leading gun makers saw earnings triple as gun sales once again shattered previous records for the month of July. July 2020 saw an estimated 1,795,602 gun sales—a new record and an increase of 133 percent over July 2019, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of FBI data. July is the fifth consecutive month to set a gun-sales record. Chris Killoy, chief executive officer of Sturm, Ruger & Company, said the current spike in sales is unlike anything he has ever seen. The buying spree shows no signs of slowing down and heavy demand will "sustain...
  • Herschel Walker Calls Out NFL, MLB: ‘I Saw a Bunch of People Holding a BLM Sign Burning the Holy Bible, Burning the Flag’

    Herschel Walker, a Heisman Trophy winner and member of the College Football Hall of Fame who went on to play twelve seasons in the NFL, posted a video on Twitter on Sunday taking American professional sports leagues to task for their approach to Black Lives Matter. “America wake up,” Walker says in his tweet, “if we love our Country, let’s speak up, stand up and protect it.” “For the first time in a long time I stopped in the middle of my work-out because last night I saw something that really, really disturbed me,” Walker said. “I saw a bunch...
  • How Cops Can Secretly Track Your Phone A guide to stingray surveillance technology, which may have been deployed at recent protests.(good!)

    08/04/2020 6:36:12 AM PDT · by rktman · 47 replies ^ | 7/31/2020 | kim zetter
    Stingrays are routinely used to target suspects in drug and other criminal investigations, but activists also believe the devices were used during protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, and against Black Lives Matter protesters over the last three months. The Justice Department requires federal agents to obtain a probable cause warrant to use the technology in criminal cases, but there is a carve-out for national security. Given that President Donald Trump has referred to protesters as “terrorists,” and that paramilitary-style officers from the Department of Homeland Security have been deployed to the streets of Portland, Oregon, it’s conceivable that surveillance...
  • The Nazi tactics of the BLM and Antifa mob

    08/01/2020 8:53:29 AM PDT · by rktman · 65 replies ^ | 8/1/2020 | Bennett Tucker
    Today, the BLM and Antifa mobs use similar identification measures to target their public enemies, but in something of a reverse tactic. In the immediate aftermath of the death of George Floyd, many shops and homes displayed signs that supported BLM and the protestors. Now that several weeks have passed, however, and destructive riots continue to rage across American cities, and the acronym BLM has become a widespread visible phenomenon seen posted in the windows of almost every street front business and home in American cities. But do these signs really convey genuine support, or is there an alternative motive?...
  • Are leftists targeting black conservatives?

    Recent news brought two alarming stories. In Milwaukee, an unknown person shot and killed Bernell Trammell, a black Trump supporter. In Portland, an Antifa member attempted to kill Andrew Duncomb, aka “Black Rebel,” a black conservative. Since we currently don’t know who shot Trammell, we can’t say with certainty that his murder was tied to his politics. Nevertheless, the fact that two black conservatives were targeted over two days is deeply troubling. Bernell Trammell owned a business called eXpressions Journal in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He had covered the business with signs supporting President Trump. On Thursday morning, he gave a video...

    Protesters in Richmond, Virginia, promising to stand with violent Portland, Oregon, activists, are threatening their own clashes with police Saturday night at the city’s Monroe Park, near the controversial memorial to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. In a profanity-laced flier, the protesters promised to “f--- shit up” and encouraged activists to “do what you want.” It also attacks President Trump, federal authorities, and members of the Richmond and Virginia State Police: “F--- the feds. F--- RPD. F--- VSP. F--- Trump.” The flier has come to the attention of the Department of Homeland Security. Monroe Park has been the headquarters for...

    The Daily Wire ^ | 25 Jul, 2020 | Erick Erickson
    There is no police power in the federal Constitution. The police power is left to the states. To the extent the President can send federal officers into Portland, Oregon, and other cities, it should be to protect federal property. The President cannot save Portland from itself, and he should not. He cannot save the other cities either. I want a mask mandate, but there is no federal police power for the President to impose it. It must come from governors, who have more expansive police powers than your average libertarian-leaning person would have you believe. The President does not have...

    Democrats are dismantling anything in America that has ever been connected with slavery. Statues are felled, school names are changed, and institutions are rebranded. Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, and others are gone because of their connection with enslaving blacks. Rep. Louis Gohmert from Texas has been paying attention, and he’s gotten the message. The new rule is that slavery, which ended in America over 150 years ago, is so wrong that anything associated with slavery must be banned. Gohmert introduced a “privileged resolution calling on Congress to ban any political party or organization that has held a public position supportive of...

    The left calls for racial quotas in the name of progress, The American dream is that any citizen, regardless of sex, race, creed, or color, can rise on his determination and merit. History is littered with examples of the reformers who worked to realize that dream, pushing the most influential institutions in the country to prize talent and hard work over wealth and connections. The introduction of standardized testing, accessible to all American teens, was part of that push. Harvard University began administering a standardized test to all applicants in 1905. Its effect was profound and immediate: historically a landing...

    ...Armed with that Carlson’s address, a left-wing mob obligingly descended on the Carlsons’ house, forcing Carlson’s wife to call 911 while hiding in the closet. Even after the police disbursed these domestic terrorists, Tucker and his family (which includes four children) continued to receive threatening mail for another year. The Carlsons finally decided to leave the neighborhood for their children’s safety. Now, the New York Times wants to force them out of their new home. There is no difference between what the Times is threatening and the mob goon saying, “Nice little house ya’ got here. Shame if something happened...

    On Monday, the day after the violent leftist attack on Michelle Malkin and her fellow conservatives at a pro-police rally in Denver, more information about the assailants came to light. For a refresher, my blog yesterday at American Thinker was the first draft of the history of this disturbing event. On Monday, an article by Lance Hernandez at KMGH-TV channel7 Denver identified the anti-police “counter protesters” who succeeded in violently shutting down the 6th annual pro-police rally where Maktin was to be a featured speaker as representing “the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and other Black Lives Matter supporters, including...

    Conservative author and activist Michelle Malkin was brutally assaulted and prevented from speaking as she made her way to the speaker’s platform at a pro-police public rally in downtown Denver on Sunday. The patriotic event, the 6th Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Day billed as “family friendly,” was advertised in advance on social media including at Malkin’s Twitter, where she has 2.2 million followers. Malkin was live streaming the event from her cell phone on Periscope Sunday afternoon as the situation deteriorated after masked thugs wearing Black Lives Matter t-shirts assaulted two speakers and then set upon Malkin. A diminutive child...

    In recent weeks, Portland, Oregon has emerged as the flashpoint of the organized violent anarchist-communist movement that seeks to “transform” the United States into a lawless Third World Marxist state. Late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, a mob of hundreds of “protesters” played another violent cat and mouse game with the city’s police and federal officers on the streets of downtown Portland. The police officially declared a riot at 11 PM PDT after which the building housing the police union (PPA) headquarters was set on fire by “demonstrators,” according to multiple sources. I have been following reports from the...

    No society, particularly one as free as the United States, would willingly abandon our constitutional protections, and our free-market economy. Americans know this. More particularly, Marxists know this. Marxists also know they can stoke the flames of injustice and inequity to goad a large swath of the electorate into believing they've been given a raw deal by "the system." There are more (relatively) poor than (relatively) rich in America, while we remain the richest nation on the planet. Envy is being weaponized to stoke a race and class war. Race and class envy is a particular means to a particular...

    Proposed initiatives include an “educational requirement on racism, bias and equity for all Cornell students,” a new Anti-Racism Center, “an institution-wide, themed semester … focus[ed] on issues of racism,” and mandatory faculty participation in “programming” regarding “race, racism and colonialism in the United States.” I have repeatedly pointed out, in response to the cancel culture targeting me over my criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement, that things have changed on campuses in ways most people don’t fully appreciate. The new activism surrounding race is completely at odds with the traditional goals of the civil rights movement — that all...

    In a world that appears to be tottering off its axis with sheer lunacy ruling the day, here is a small sampling of the dangerous ideas gaining traction and the cowardice displayed by so many. In Great Britain, where grooming gang crimes exist, "British women who drew attention to 'Asian' [Pakistani and South Asian] sex grooming gangs, are also being attacked by the 'woke' establishment" because "if the victim is white and the rapist is not, she is no victim at all; worse, she is a 'racist' and 'hater' who, if anything, apparently deserves what she got and more."

    In a letter dated July 2, Minnesota’s Governor Tim Walz asked–pleaded with–the Federal Emergency Management Agency for money to help pay for the damages caused by rioters and arsonists in Minneapolis. Walz’s letter is disingenuous in its description of how $500,000,000 in destruction came about: The resources of local, tribal, county and state governments were already stretched thin due to our ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, all levels of government surged available resources for immediate response to preserve life and safety and to protect property and infrastructure from additional damage. Nothing could be further from the truth. In...

    No society can tolerate this for long. The arsonists will not burn down society; the society will awaken and banish the arsonists. s we get into high summer, there must be a very large number of Americans now actively considering whether the country is going mad. The leading newspaper in the nation’s capital has accused the president of plumbing “new depths of depravity” in a perfectly unexceptionable and soaringly eloquent speech at Mount Rushmore last Friday. Praising the American revolutionary ideal that “all men are created equal” and its reaffirmation by Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War that brought about...
