  • New Senior Advisor At The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Last Year Lauded “Looting As A Vital Form Of Social Protest” And Condemned Police

    Crime Prevention Research Center ^ | 2/16/21 | Dr. John R. Lott
    Ironically at the same time that Democrats in the House impeached Donald Trump for supposedly inciting the January 6th riot, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee hires as a Senior Advisor someone who last year lauded “Looting as a Vital form of social Protest” and condemned the police. The Tweet shown above is from Dyjuan Tatro at the end of last August. How is it possible that Trump asking people to “peacefully and patriotically, make your voices heard” is inciting violence, but these comments from a Senior Advisor for the Democrats is considered appropriate? He has also removed Tweets from his...
  • What Does Antifa Care About?

    In my opinion, the answer to “what does Antifa care about?” is “nothing.” That’s because the Antifa idiots are a group of nihilistic thugs. They don’t care about justice. They’re not fighting fascism. George Floyd is probably nothing but an afterthought to them; it’s not like a bunch of white, liberal college kids are really all that worried about police violence in the Midwest. So, in reality, Antifa is after nothing. What does Antifa care about? Nothing. What does it want? To watch the world burn. The next question, after asking yourself or others “what does Antifa care about?” is...
  • Democrats Support the Riots that Are Ravaging 2020 America

    I often see conservative commentators, both on TV and on social media, asking for Democrats to condemn the rioters or to at least state why they will not do that. While I am sure that those commentators are well-intentioned, they are obviously missing the point. Democrats have not condemned the riots and will not do so because, unlike conservatives and the independents that value the rule of law and private property, they do not cherish or even respect Western norms. In fact, they hate Western civilization. Therefore, I think it is fair to say that Democrats support the riots that...
  • Who are the Victims of Riots in 2020? The Same People as Always: Business Owners

    “The self-respecting small home owners and shop owners are the unprotected and undefended victims of every race riot.” -Ayn Rand If there is one word that will eventually come to describe the summer of 2020, it will be “riots.” We have seen the violent, riotous instincts of Democrats on full display as Antifa thugs attack conservatives and BLM Marxists smash shop windows and loot the contents of every business they come across. Both conservatives and liberals have been all over the media talking about these riots. Conservatives insist that the so-called “peaceful protesters” are really violent mobs of looters and...
  • Florida “Anti-Mob” Bill Gives Civilians Immunity If They Shoot Looters Or Run Over Protesters

    This week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the drafting of a new piece of legislation that would expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law. He is calling the legislation an “anti-mob” bill and it seems specifically targeted at the Black lives Matter movement and the ongoing protests against police brutality that have swept across the United States in recent months. The new legislation, if it becomes law, would allow armed citizens in the state of Florida to shoot, and potentially kill anyone that they suspect of looting a home or business. According to the Miami Herald, the legislation is an...

    The worst thing for our country isn't a Joe Biden presidency. It's giving the leftist toddlers what they want. The only thing worse than listening to a screaming toddler is seeing his smug, tear-stained but smiling face after his parent gives in to his irreverent outburst and rewards him for his tantrum. That’s all I could think about as I walked the streets of Madison, Wisconsin, Saturday night after several news outlets called the presidential race for Joe Biden.A hopeful energy pulsed through State Street, the bustling pedestrian mall of restaurants and storefronts bookended by the university and the Capitol....

    New York Post ^ | November 11, 2020 | 9:06am | By Lee Brown
    Florida’s governor has drafted “anti-mob” legislation to expand already controversial Stand Your Ground laws — to allow people to shoot looters, according to a report. A draft of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ proposed bill expands the list of “forcible felonies” under Florida’s self-defense law to include criminal mischief causing “interruption or impairment” of a business, according to the Miami Herald, which obtained a copy through a records request. It also specifically allows force against those looting, which the draft defines as burglary within 500 feet of a “violent or disorderly assembly.” DeSantis also wants to make it a third-degree felony to...

    There is something obscene and repulsive about American businesses having to board up store windows on the eve of an election because they know their government cannot protect them from anti-American barbarians and thugs. And there is something un-American about mobs going into neighborhoods and restaurants to intimidate innocent citizens. President Donald Trump should respond to the vicious, destructive and lawless mob precisely as President Abraham Lincoln did. Consider how deeply Lincoln understood the importance of enforcing the law and providing safety and order - and the obligation of the government to use force when necessary. President Lincoln understood mob...

    Downtown San Francisco storefronts are boarding up ahead of Election Day in anticipation of looting and rioting. Landlords are preparing for potential unrest only months after people flooded streets to protest the killing of George Floyd. Most marched peacefully, but some opportunistic vandals engaged in violent activity and looting in Union Square. The hope is similar lawlessness won't flare up after the election, but just in case, buildings along Market Street, from the Salesforce Tower to San Francisco Centre, are covered in massive pieces of plywood. On Friday afternoon, Macy's on Union Square was already fully covered and a crew...

    It doesn't matter who wins on Tuesday, America is in for big trouble. If it's Joe Biden, the Democrat Party's street gangs will celebrate by rioting in the streets. If Donald Trump wins re-election, Biden's supporters will be so enraged they'll riot, loot and burn everything they can - and the liberal media will say they had every right to express their anger. I live in Los Angeles, which government law-and-order experts say is not likely to riot and burn because of next week's presidential election results. But I'm taking no chances. Here they riot and loot when the Dodgers...

    Retailer says move is a safety precaution but customers can still purchase firearms and ammunition. Walmart Inc. has removed all guns and ammunition from the sales floors of its U.S. stores this week, aiming to head off any potential theft of firearms if stores are broken into amid social unrest. The retail giant, which sells firearms in about half of its 4,700 U.S. stores, said customers can still purchase guns and ammunition upon request even though they are no longer on display. “We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last...

    Looters have taken over Philadelphia following the death of a black man who charged at police officers with a knife in an apparent suicide by cop. For three nights, the grieving looters have taken the opportunity to steal what they can from local businesses. But after one looter bragged about the products he stole, including Plan B pills, the looter got a taste of his own medicine when another robber took his ill-begotten items away from him. Easy come, easy go. "I got em'," a looter bragged as he held up Plan B pills to the camera. The looter then...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday condemned local Democrat officials for failing to stop rioting and looting in Philadelphia the previous evening in reaction to a police shooting of a black man. “It’s a terrible thing. What I’m witnessing is terrible and frankly, that the mayor or whoever it is that’s allowing people to riot and loot and not stop them is just a horrible thing,” Trump said. ... “We’re watching it very closely and we’re waiting for a call. If they want help, we’re there; we’ll be in there within one hour,” he said. Trump said that local officials had...

    Looters in the Port Richmond neighborhood of Philadelphia ransacked a Walmart during the second night of protesting the shooting of an armed Black man on the city’s west side. Rioters broke pipes in the ceiling, flooding the store. Fox29 reporter Steve Keeley tweeted video from inside the pillaged Walmart early Wednesday morning. The footage shows the devastation left behind by looters who stole everything from big-screen televisions to small appliances. Water is seen spraying from pipes in the ceiling. The unrest began after two officers shot and killed an armed Black man, Walter Wallace, Jr. Video captured by a witness...

    As reported earlier “mostly peaceful” Black Lives Matter protesters rioted, looted and attacked police in Philadelphia on Monday night after police shot a black man who was threatening them with a knife. The BLM believes the cops are to blame. The far left protest immediately turned into rioting and looting. One female police officer was run over by a truck. Several more were injured. The city was run over by rioters. On Tuesday Democrat Governor Tom Wolf suggested the mass riots were peaceful protests

    The intersection in south Minneapolis where George Floyd died in police custody on May 25 has become a quasi-religious shrine. It is a shrine not just to Floyd, who is honored here as if he were a saint or a martyr, but to the political power of the Black Lives Matter movement and the ascendency of the radical left in this city. The intersection and the neighborhood around it have been “occupied” for months now. To get to the memorial—or “George Square,” as it’s now called—you must approach on foot. For a block in every direction, the streets are closed...
