Hasn’t all of this Charlottesville thing been going on at least since the 1992 Los Angeles riots and the plaintive cry of one, Rodney King ringing loud and clear – “Can’t we all just get along?” Matter of fact, it’s been going on since the 1967/68 Detroit riots and the 1968 Chicago riot during the Democrat National Convention.
Those ‘long hot summers’ of dissension and hatred have a habit of re-forming themselves every once in a while, most of them lately being under what appears to be the deliberate direction and instigation of liberal progressive leftist political operatives. Aided and abetted of course, by the leftist Big Media Fake News Cabal.
As Daniel Greenfield puts it in the body of his piece coming up in FrontPageMag: “The Dems have become an extremist party run by the radical left. Obama, Holder, and Lynch made common cause with black nationalist hate groups against civil society. It began when Obama defended the vile racism of Jeremiah Wright and concluded with DOJ organized race riots. DNC boss Tom Perez addresses La Raza and his deputy Keith Ellison is a veteran of the Nation of Islam.”[end]
One look at the groups the Left is allied with tells the whole story. La Raza, BLM, the Muslims, the Nation of Islam, the Black Panthers – all advocating and committing violence. The Left used to pretend to befriend blue collar workers, Jews, feminists, etc., but they have abandoned them for violent groups as in Charlottesville who will gladly go into the streets and bully or fight. Their push to trigger a violent reaction from the right has been going on for some time and has actually failed. The neo-Nazis are the Left’s Siamese twin.
Any demonstration or rally by the right, or anyone construed to be on the right, will be met with more of what happened in Charlottesville. And every time it happens, there will be more weapons. Police will have to deny counter-demonstrations to events that are officially approved. After all, ‘freedom of speech’ doesn’t mean the freedom to suppress the speech of others.
Daniel Greenfield and his opener…
In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers.
The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Ibram X. Kendi are lionized as brilliant thinkers instead of hateful racists, Amazon has ordered a black nationalist secessionist fantasy from Aaron McGruder and Showtime aired ‘Guerilla,’ a miniseries glamorizing Black Panther terrorism.
But racism is a two-way street. So is violence. Extremists feed into each other.
You can’t legitimize one form of racism without legitimizing all of them. The media may advance this hypocritical position. Obama used the shameful “reverse racism” euphemism that distinguishes between black and white racism. But propaganda and spin don’t change the physics of human nature.
Either all racism is bad. Or all racism is acceptable.
Charlottesville is what happens when you normalize racism and street violence. Every normalization of extremism equally normalizes the extremism of the opposite side.
A civil society depends on a consensus. ‘Racism is bad’ is an example of such a consensus. If you normalize black nationalism, you will get more white nationalism. If you normalize leftist street violence against Trump supporters, you will also get more street violence against leftists.
Extremists want to eliminate the consensus of civil society. They want to destroy the idea that there’s any solution except violence through confrontations that show the helplessness of civil society.
Of all the people Obama could have chosen, it was tax-evader Al Sharpton who was tapped by the former president of the United States to be the arbiter of everything “racial” in this country. Having been invited to the White House over 80 times, it beggars belief as to what their agenda might have been as they plotted and schemed together. Does that say anything to you?
I am no White Supremacist, but I agree that there is no difference between “Black Supremacists” and “White Supremacists” and as a Constitutionalist I want neither. We can’t allow the Left, and the Big Fake Media, to label us with their nasty labels, or to group us with misfits and trouble makers.
Charlottesville was more about the failure of the Democrat state and local governments than it was about anything else. In fact it looked like a preplanned scheme to try and put blame for violence on backers of Trump. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“Either all racism is bad. Or all racism is acceptable”. The Left lost its ability a long time ago to defend its positions using reason and intelligence, choosing instead intimidation, censorship and violence to silence the opposition. Moderate liberals have been run over by the hard Left and been marginalized, mostly because of their history of failed policies.
Dennis Prager, Newt Gingrich and others are entirely correct in their assessment of America being in the midst of a 2nd Civil War. Ideological differences are greater now than they were in the mid-1800s, with two very different visions of America hanging in the balance. For far too many of us, Charlottesville was yet another shot across the proverbial political bow.
