Who’s guilty of inciting who?

The democrats and the establishment RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) are attempting to impeach President Trump…, again…, this time for “inciting violence,” which The President did not do. 

The President encouraged the protesters there, last Wednesday, to go to the capitol and let their voices be heard, but there was no call for violence.  

In fact, have you ever heard President Trump, or any republican for that matter, call for any kind of violence or personal attacks?

Ya…, me neither.

On the other hand, we have a documented history of many democrats doing exactly what they are accusing President Trump of doing.

Isn’t this becoming a pattern of behavior for the democrats?  

Here are some (not all of the) examples of democrats calling for violence or physical confrontations against President Trump, people in his administration, and republican members of Congress. 

Emma Colton, Social Media Manager for The Washington Examiner, reports, “Rep. Maxine Waters…, Sen. Cory Booker…, and Sen. Jon Tester, have all made comments suggesting violence or confrontations against Republicans. All of their Twitter accounts remain active, while the videos themselves are also circulating on the massive social media site.”

“Rep. Maxine Waters, for example, notably called for her supporters to harass Trump administration officials in public during a rally in 2018.’

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,’ Waters said.”

“Waters is far from alone.”

“New Jersey’s Booker [Senator Cory Booker] was also recorded in 2018 urging activists at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness to ‘get up in the face of some congresspeople.’”

‘“… that’s my call to action here. Please don’t just come here today and then go home,’ he said. ‘Go to the Hill today. Get up, and please get up in the face of some congresspeople.’”

Then in 2019…, Senator Jon Tester of Montana said on MSNBC, “I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it does you any good running away from Donald Trump.  I think you need to go back and punch him in the face.”

“Then in 2020, House Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi said during a National Governors Association meeting that when a person is involved with politics, ‘you have to be ready to take a punch, and you have to be ready to throw a punch.’”

What is it with these democrats always wanting to punch somebody?

I mean, seriously?

“’Grabien’ [a multimedia marketplace company] founder Tom Elliott recently shared videos of Democrats making such comments on his Twitter account, and said that the violence seen at the Capitol last Wednesday would have occurred even if Trump had won in November, ‘Because Democrats have been endorsing violence as a political tactic throughout the entire Trump Administration.’”

We have also seen Senator Chuck Schumer get in on this action.

According to The Editorial Board of The Wall Street Journal, “Democrats like to accuse President Trump of violating institutional democratic norms, and often he does with his rhetorical broadsides. But at least he’s never directly threatened the U.S. Supreme Court the way Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer did.”

“Speaking to a crowd on the Supreme Court steps, the leading Senate Democrat declared: ‘I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price.’ He meant Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, the newest Justices who were appointed by President Trump.”

“Mr. Schumer was speaking before abortion-rights activists as the Supreme Court considers whether to curtail the ability of abortion providers to sue on behalf of women seeking abortions—a doctrine known as third-party standing. Mr. Schumer, still addressing Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, added: ‘You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.’”

“The ‘whirlwind?’ ‘What hit you?’ We won’t go so far as to call that an incitement to violence, but it surely was a threat of political reprisal against the Justices if they don’t vote the way Mr. Schumer wants.”

The Wall Street Journal may not want to go that far, but I’ll call that an incitement of violence. 

“The remarks [Schumer’s remarks] drew a rare and pointed public rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, who said: ‘Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.’”

It sure seems like Chief Justice Roberts agrees with me!

Then we have our wonderful Vice-president elect, Kamala Harris.

Camille Caldera of USA TODAY reports, “Though largely peaceful, some of this summer’s protests have at times turned violent.”

Uh, I think you have backwards Ms. Caldera.  You should have said, “Though largely violent, some of this summer’s protests have at times been peaceful.”

Regardless…, “A clip of Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris on an episode of ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ in June has resurfaced online.”

“Its title on YouTube claims: ‘Kamala Harris wants the riots to continue and not let up, not now not even after the election.’”

“The exchange between Harris and Colbert — which took place on June 17, a few weeks after George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis — referred to protests, not riots. The word ‘riot’ is not even mentioned in the 30-second exchange.”

That would be consistent with the democrats’ denial, at the time, that any riots were even occurring.   

‘“I know there are protests still happening in major cities across the United States. I’m just not seeing the reporting on it that I had for the first few weeks,’ Colbert said.”

‘“That’s right,’ Harris replied. ‘But they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop, and this is a movement, I’m telling you.’”

‘“They’re not gonna stop, and everyone beware, because they’re not gonna stop,’ she added. ‘They’re not gonna stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not gonna stop after Election Day.’”

‘“Everyone should take note of that, on both levels, that they’re not going to let up — and they should not. And we should not,’ she concluded.”

So, I get the impression you feel “they’re not gonna stop,” Kamala.

Saying they (the rioters, looters, arsonists, vandals, and those committing assaults and murder) “should not stop” is encouraging and inciting continued violence, is it not?

Again…, it sure sounds like it to me.

Now last, but certainly not least, we have the illegitimate President-elect himself, Joe Biden.

According to Veronica Stracqualursi, for CNN, ‘“They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, if we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,’ said Biden, getting laughter and applause from the crowd at the University of Miami.”

“Biden said Tuesday, ‘I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I’m a pretty damn good athlete.’”

Thanks for that inciteful assessment of yourself, Joe!

You just might be a better “athlete” that you are a politician!

In fact, I’m sure you are!

Anyway…

So, as we watch the democrats proceed with their hypocritical impeachment party, today, just remember who’s guilty of inciting who.

Your definition of “peaceful” is shameful!   

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell says ‘mostly peaceful’ protests caused $1B to $2B in damage from looting and arson.”

That’s a pretty general statement, and as we will learn, that only reflects damages over a two-week period, not for all “protests” in total.

‘“Peaceful protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ media analyst Nicholas Fondacaro says.”

“Many members of the mainstream media have made sure to paint nationwide protests as ‘peaceful’ in recent months– and ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Norah O’Donnell demonstrated how far they’re willing to go on Wednesday night.”

Let’s stop and think about this for minute.

Is that really the job of the mainstream media and “CBS Evening News” in this particular instance, to “paint” events which are happening in our country or around the world?

Aren’t “news organizations” supposed to report what’s happening and let the public decide what to think about it?

“Axios [Axios is an American news website, founded in 2016, and launched the following year by former Politico team members.] reported earlier in the day that damage caused by ‘riots and civil disorders’ from May 26 through June 8 would cost insurance companies between $1-2 billion.”

‘“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,’ Axios reported.”

Please note that it still hasn’t been determined that the officers were responsible for George Floyd’s death.

“When O’Donnell reported the overwhelming figure, she made sure to insist the protests were mostly peaceful.”

“Overwhelming figure?”

The real “overwhelming figure” would be the figure that takes into account ALL of the “protesting,” rioting, looting, burning, and vandalizing which has occurred over the past four months.

I would conservatively, no pun intended, estimate those damages to be in the tens of billions of dollars…, which taxpayers and people with insurance will end up paying for, I’m sure.

‘“The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King,’ O’Donnell told viewers.”

In truth, the “protests” were mostly NOT peaceful.

“Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out that NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ and ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ didn’t bother to report the alarming statistic. While O’Donnell at least informed viewers of the damage, Fondacaro doesn’t understand why she needed to add the disclaimer.”

Has the Media Research Center mentioned that the mainstream media has failed to report much, if any, of the violence tied to the “protests” of the last four months?

It’s not really surprising then that most of the media failed to point out these “alarming statistics,” is it?

That answer would be a big, “no.”

‘“Earth to the liberal media, ‘peaceful’ protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ Fondacaro wrote.”

What death, destruction and shattered lives are you talking about?  Don’t you realize, Mr. Fondacaro, that if the liberal propaganda fake news media doesn’t report something it didn’t really happen?

“Insurance Information Institute (or Triple-I) compiles information from a company called Property Claim Services (PCS), which has tracked insurance claims related to civil disorder since 1950, and other databases. It provided reports to Axios that the damage from unrest between May 26 and June 8 will be the most expensive in the nation’s history, surmounting the Rodney King riots of 1992 in Los Angeles.”

“The price tag could be as much as $2 billion and possibly more, according to Triple I. But the protests related to Floyd differ from others the database has tracked – never before have they been so widespread.”

‘“It’s not just happening in one city or state – it’s all over the country,’ Loretta L. Worters of the Triple-I told Axios. ‘And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.’”

That’s a real good guess there, Ms. Worters.

I guess Captain Obvious could be a woman, although I never really thought about it before!

“The last time PCS compiled insurance losses for a ‘civil disorder event’ was 2015, when riots erupted in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died from a neck injury in police custody. But those riots did not even accrue $25 million in damages.”

Not even $25 million?

Well that’s hardly even worth mentioning then!

Ya know, I’ve seen that rich liberals and Biden staffers, encouraged by Kamala Harris, are raising a lot of money to bail some of these violent “protesters” out of jail. Quite a few in fact.

I keep reading about some of these scared companies donating millions and millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization too.

Maybe the bail-out fund, the Black Lives Matter organization, and the rest of their corporate friends can help pay for some of the damage their friends have caused?

Just sayin’.

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is going on here?!

Okay…, so, let me get this straight.

A vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, mind you, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers?

A current vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, is doing that?

Sadly, it is absolutely true.

Democrat candidate for vice-president, Kamala Harris, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers.

This is not an issue at all for most democrats, but the Biden campaign has managed to recognize that a majority of the voters in America don’t see it that way.

So, as a result, they have sent their candidates, “Sleepy” Joe Biden and “Comrade” Kamala Harris, out to lie about their position, and pretend they care about law and order and protecting law abiding citizens.

David Marcus, of “The Federalist” website, reports, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a problem. They know it, the media knows it, everyone knows it.”

“For three months they have ignored the deadly rioting that spread across the nation’s cities on both coasts and in between. They insisted that what we were seeing was ‘mostly peaceful’ protests and that Donald Trump and his evil allies were defaming decent Americans who just want social justice. Now they want to denounce these riots, but there is a problem: Harris is a financial supporter of the rioters she now claims to denounce.”

“Yes, that’s right, the Democrats’ vice presidential candidate was a huckster for a bail fund that sought to free violent criminals who were rioting on the streets of Minneapolis, and she was very effective at it.”

“In the wake of deadly fires and looting, Harris asked her five million plus Twitter followers to donate money to bail out the ‘protesters’ [criminals] arrested in the riots.”

Kamala wouldn’t want to help out any of the small business people who lost everything at the hands of these neo-fascist criminals…, she wants you to send in your hard-earned money to help get these neo-fascist criminals released from custody so they can go right back to destroying and looting more small businesses, and hurting more innocent people.

“Let’s meet a few of the beneficiaries of her [Kamala’s] largesse [generosity], shall we?”

“Fox 9 News in Minneapolis did the research for us. [That’s the kind of research MrEricksonRules likes!]”

“Here are a few of the criminals they found Harris did a solid for.”

“Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.”

“According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.”

“Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.”

“Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,000 in cash for his release.”

And these are just a few of the many, many criminals Kamala sought to get released so they could get back to their business of destroying these cities and innocent lives.

“Kamala Harris and her friends in the corporate media, otherwise known as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party [and fake news], will pretend this never happened and they are counting on voters to be too ignorant to know that it did.”

Definitely no shortage of ignorant voters!

“Harris was so eager to be on the rioters’ team that she literally raised money for them in the hopes that they could be released and foster further mayhem.”

And that’s what she thought was a good idea?

“That on its own would be bad enough. But the fact that she is now attempting to pretend she was against all of this violence, and looting, and arson, and destruction from the get go is an insulting joke. Did Harris really think that peaceful protesters obeying the rules were the ones arrested in Minneapolis? Of course she didn’t. She just assumed that justifying the unrest would help Democrats’ political chances. Now that this has been shown to be false, she is trying to change her position. But it’s way too late for that.”

“The American people aren’t stupid, they know exactly where Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party stood on the riots.”

“They stood side by side with the rioters.”

“That they have now cynically come to regret that position is, I suppose, a good thing. But it does not erase the harm done in lives, property, and opportunity that their approval of rioting did.”

“We know whose side they were on, and it wasn’t the police.”

And it wasn’t on the side of law-abiding citizens either.

“The American people will not forget that.”

I hope not.

Looting…, it’s not just for criminals anymore…, radical liberals, Marxists, and opportunists in general like it too!

Natalie Escobar for National Public Radio (NPR), reports on “One author’s argument in defense of looting.”

Hmmm…, someone who feels they can defend looting?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKYpS_Ro13U

I’m not sure why anyone would want to defend that, but be that as it may…

“In the past months of demonstrations for Black lives, there has been a lot of hand-wringing about looting. And just this week, rioters have burned buildings and looted stores in Kenosha, Wis., following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, to which Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson has said: ‘Peaceful protesting is a constitutionally protected form of free speech. Rioting is not.’”

I would say the rioting and the looting have been downplayed and, even ignored, to a great extent by the complicit, liberal propaganda, news media, who have followed the lead of their democrat friends and democrat co-conspirators.

I you recall, the democrats made no mention of the civil unrest happening across our country at their convention.

Propaganda by omission.

If we (the democrats) don’t acknowledge it, or talk about it, it didn’t happen.

“Writer Vicky Osterweil’s book, ‘In Defense of Looting,’ came out on Tuesday. When she finished it, back in April, she wrote (rather presciently [with foresight]) that ‘a new energy of resistance is building across the country.’”

aloot 16

aloot 14

Please note that Vicky Osterweil used to be Willie Osterweil, just in case Vicky looked familiar.

aloot 12

aloot 13

“Now, as protests and riots continue to grip cities, she argues that looting is a powerful tool to bring about real, lasting change in society.”

aloot 20

Oh…, it’s going to bring about change alright…, but not the kind of change that any of the looters are going to like.

They are not doing themselves or any associated “movement” they may have any favors.

“The rioters who smash windows and take items from stores, she says, are engaging in a powerful tactic that questions the justice of ‘law and order,’ and the distribution of property and wealth in an unequal society.”

Otherwise known as “stealing.”

aloot 1

Vicky apparently doesn’t know it, or doesn’t care, but these are the same principles that were promoted by the Nazi’s prior to World War II.

Natalie Escobar continues, “I spoke with Osterweil about this summer’s riots, the common narratives surrounding looting, and why ‘nonviolence’ can be a misleading term.”

No…, I would say that “nonviolence” is a pretty understandable word that means something not involving violence.

“For people who haven’t read your book [and that would be 99.999999% of America], how do you define looting?”

“’When I use the word looting, I mean the mass expropriation of property, mass shoplifting during a moment of upheaval or riot.’”

Ha!

“Mass shoplifting!”

That would be “stealing,” in other words.

‘“That’s the thing I’m defending. I’m not defending any situation in which property is stolen by force. It’s not a home invasion, either. It’s about a certain kind of action that’s taken during protests and riots.”

So, breaking windows and breaking down doors isn’t considered “stolen by force” in Osterweil’s opinion?

Escobar continued by asking, “Is Looting a Loaded Word?”

Vicky Osterweil responded, ‘“Looting is a highly racialized word from its very inception in the English language. It’s taken from Hindi, lút, which means ‘goods’ or ‘spoils,’ and it appears in an English colonial officer’s handbook [on ‘Indian Vocabulary’] in the 19th century.”

Excuse me, Vicky…, but, so what?

What does the word being taken from a Hindi word have to do with your claim that the word is highly racialized?

I don’t view the word “looting,” or “looter” to be racial at all, and I don’t think most people do either.

I view the word “looter” negatively…, but that’s about it.

aloot 15

“Can you talk about rioting as a tactic? What are the reasons people deploy it as a strategy?”

‘“It does a number of important things. It gets people what they need for free immediately, which means that they are capable of living and reproducing their lives without having to rely on jobs or a wage—which, during COVID times, is widely unreliable or, particularly in these communities is often not available, or it comes at great risk. That’s looting’s most basic tactical power as a political mode of action.’”

Ha, ya!

aloot 21

How are these people supposed to live without 15 pairs of Air Jordan’s?

How are these people supposed to live without 25 Rolexes?

How are these people supposed to survive without a couple big screen TVs?

I mean, c’mon…, let’s be reasonable!

‘“It also attacks the very way in which food and things are distributed. It attacks the idea of property, and it attacks the idea that in order for someone to have a roof over their head or have a meal ticket, they have to work for a boss, in order to buy things that people just like them somewhere else in the world had to make under the same conditions. It points to the way in which that’s unjust.’”

Excuse me, Vicky…, but it’s called MAKING A LIVING!

It’s what most people have to do, unless you spend all of your time “protesting,” rioting, looting, or playing video games during your downtime, while living with mommy, mommy and daddy, grandma, grandpa, or grandma and grandpa.

‘“And the reason that the world is organized that way, obviously, is for the profit of the people who own the stores and the factories. So, you get to the heart of that property relation, and demonstrate that without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.’”

aloot 22

Huh!  Ya…, we could all have these things for free.  If it wasn’t for the evil people who own the stores and factories, we could all just pick the big screen TVs off of the big screen TV trees!

aloot 25

‘“Importantly, I think especially when it’s in the context of a Black uprising like the one we’re living through now, it also attacks the history of whiteness and white supremacy. The very basis of property in the U.S. is derived through whiteness and through Black oppression, through the history of slavery and settler domination of the country.”’

Ya…, I don’t know of ANY black people who actually own anything, or ANY black people who aren’t oppressed!

Please, give us all a break from your idiotic, racial, stupidness.

aloot 24

‘“Looting strikes at the heart of property, of whiteness and of the police. It gets to the very root of the way those three things are interconnected. And, also it provides people with an imaginative sense of freedom and pleasure and helps them imagine a world that could be. And I think that’s a part of it that doesn’t really get talked about—that riots and looting are experienced as sort of joyous and liberatory.’”

aloot 9

aloot 3

Wow…, where do I begin here?

aloot 23

First, YOU, Vicky, racialize the situation by negatively stereotyping both Blacks and Whites.

Secondly, when you say, “And, also it [looting] provides people with an imaginative sense of freedom and pleasure,” I honestly want to throw-up.

And then you go on to say, “And I think that’s a part of it that doesn’t really get talked about—that riots and looting are experienced as sort of joyous and liberatory.’”

I can tell you, Vicky, that riots and looting are not a “joyous” occasion for those who get assaulted, or even killed, while attempting to protect their livelihood and their property.

I can tell you, Vicky, that riots and looting are not a “joyous” occasion for people to see their community burn to the ground, taking jobs and places to shop and do business with it.

“What are some of the most common myths and tropes that you hear about looting?”

aloot 6

aloot 4aloot 5

‘“One of the ones that’s been very powerful, that’s both been used by Donald Trump and Democrats, has been the outside agitator myth, that the people doing the riots are coming from the outside.’”

This is not a myth, and it has been demonstrated and documented to be absolutely true on numerous occasions during many of these riots.

‘“Another one is that looters are just acting as consumers. Why are they taking flat screen TVs instead of rice and beans? Like, if they were just surviving, it’d be one thing, but they’re taking liquor. All these tropes [a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression] come down to claiming that the rioters and the looters don’t know what they’re doing. They’re acting, you know, in a disorganized way, maybe an ‘animalistic’ way [definitely in an “animalistic” way]. But the history of the movement for liberation in America is full of looters and rioters. They’ve always been a part of our movement.’”

And “The history of the movement for liberation in America” IS NOT “full of looters and rioters, and they [rioting and looting] have NOT “always been a part of our movement.”

I would challenge you, Vicky, to actually document these fraudulent and libelous claims against our American heritage.

‘“There’s also another factor, which is anti-Blackness and contempt for poor people who want to live a better life…’”

What in thee hell are you talking about?!

I don’t know anyone who has “contempt for poor people who want to live a better life.”

In fact, most people admire people who want to make a better life for themselves, as long as it’s legal and through being resourceful and/or through hard work.

‘“One thing about looting is it freaks people out.’”

Uh…, ya…, and pisses them off in most cases as well.

‘“But in terms of potential crimes that people can commit against the state, it’s basically nonviolent. You’re mass shoplifting. Most stores are insured; it’s just hurting insurance companies on some level. It’s just money. It’s just property. It’s not actually hurting any people.’”

aloot 7

Well, Miss Vicky, I must say your level of confusion is quite impressive!

I guess if you have never created something through hard work and sacrifice, you can’t appreciate its value.

And, “It’s not actually hurting any people,” except the owners, like I just mentioned, the people who worked at these places who are now out of jobs, and the people who may have liked patronizing these businesses, which may or may not ever reopen.

No…, it’s not actually “hurting” any people.

Idiot.

ANTIFA and BLM are sooo brave!

Yes, my friends, these two domestic terrorist groups, and anyone else who hides their ugly behavior behind their “right to protest” and “social injustice,” seem to display their true colors on a daily basis…, and their true color is yellow!

For the sake of this article, I’ll just refer to these lowlifes as “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

achicks 3

achicks 14

If you’ve been following the news, you can see a definite pattern to the attacks by these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

What you’ll notice is they typically never attack anyone who could pose them any threat at all.

achicks 15

They either attack inanimate objects, like buildings, stores, businesses and statues, or they attack old men, old women, young girls, boys, or anyone when they outnumber the person by at least five to one.

achicks 1

achicks 4

Like I said, these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists” are sooo brave.

Below are some actual recent headlines from the news that demonstrate what I’m talking about:

“GRAPHIC VIDEO: 71-year-old man reportedly suffers broken jaw, blow to head as he defends Kenosha business.”

“Girlfriend of Portland man attacked: ‘They were trying to fight people.’”

“Woman Attacked at Philadelphia Church During Live-Streamed Mass.”

“92-year-old woman randomly attacked in Gramercy Park, Manhattan.”

“Elderly woman attacked, set on fire in Brooklyn.”

“Retired NYPD sergeant attacked in Garment District beatdown caught on video.”

“Chicago violence: Chilling video shows woman, 85, slammed during robbery.”

“Man attacked by group of 5 people near State Street, left with facial fractures, police say.”

“Aggressive mob of white BLM protesters threaten and film white diners at DC restaurants and DEMAND they raise their fist and show solidarity with them…. or else.”

“Oakland rioters torch courthouse, smash windows as unrest continues.”

“Crowds tear down statues outside Wisconsin State Capitol, attack state senator.”

“Minneapolis stores looted as mayhem erupts after gunman’s suicide.”

See what I mean?

How long do you think this type of behavior will be allowed to go on, unchecked, as the police choose to sit on their hands, and the city prosecutor’s office is just a revolving door for these criminals when they do happen to be apprehended?

I guess we’ll see, won’t we?

achicks 8

Oh, here’s another headline I wanted to share:

“Kenosha: teen charged with murder after two Black Lives Matter protesters killed.”

And so it begins.

achicks 6

Before this chaos across our country is resolved, you’ll be seeing some good people doing some bad things to bad people.

When a vacuum is created in our society regarding law and order, that vacuum will be filled, one way or the other.

The Portland Police are giving up on policing the “far-right???”

Policing the “far-right?”

How about policing the “far-left?!!!”

The last time I checked, Portland was into their 70th or 80th or whatever ridiculous number of straight nights of violence, burning, and looting, courtesy of the neo-fascist, radical, left-wing, rioters.

But, they’re giving up on policing the far-right?

How about even beginning to police the far-left?!

According to Andy Campbell for HuffPost [HuffPost is a liberal American news website], “The Portland Police Bureau [PPB] appears to have all but given up on policing the far-right factions brawling in the Oregon city’s streets, despite a recent escalation in violence that has seen those extremists throw explosives, brandish guns and in one case fire them at other protesters.”

apolice 1

“It’s common to see far-right extremist groups like the ‘Proud Boys’ exchanging blows with counter-protesters in Portland. They’ve been doing that for years, often as PPB officers watched until a riot was officially declared and then police cleared the streets using tear gas and other munitions.”

I must admit, I was not aware of these confrontations between the left and the right groups amid the rioting in Portland.

For some reason, it was a well-kept secret by the media.

And this is the first I’ve heard of “the proud boys” as well.

“But over the weekend, police took an entirely hands-off approach to the fighting, even as the demonstrations grew more violent than ever.”

Excuse me, but, you’re saying the Portland police taking a “hands-off approach” with the violence is news?

Just sayin’.

“As officers stood by on Saturday, the ‘Proud Boys’ and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters using paintball guns, mace, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to The Washington Post.”

The term “anti-fascist protesters,” which is used here, is a complete misnomer.

These radical, left-wing, agitators, are neither “anti-fascists” nor
protesters.”

They are neo-fascist terrorists.

And, oh, the poor, poor protesters!

They were being intimidated!!!

Can you imagine?!

The nerve of those ruthless “proud boys!”

apolice 6

Now, getting back to the “far-right” groups, as the HuffPost describes them, “One of them — notorious ‘Proud Boys’ organizer Alan Swinney — was seen pointing a gun at protesters, his finger on the trigger. Another ‘Proud Boy,’ Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, was present, per the Post, in apparent violation of his parole over an attack at a similar demonstration in 2017 (he wasn’t apprehended on Saturday, but a judge on Monday issued a warrant for his arrest).”

apolice 2

Now, this is a new wrinkle to the riot reporting.

They name the members of this “proud boy” group.

I don’t recall the media naming any members of the rioting group, much less attaching a name to the rioting group in general.

It’s obviously a preconceived propaganda strategy of the fake news.

apolice 3

“Meanwhile, over a loudspeaker, police encouraged those present to ‘self-monitor for criminal activity.’ In essence, the PPB had thrown up its hands.”

“Self-monitor?!

Ha!!!

That’s a good one I haven’t heard before!

“In a statement to The Washington Post, the bureau said that officers were tired from responding to ongoing demonstrations against racism and police brutality, which have kept Portland in the national spotlight for weeks. Officers wouldn’t intervene in small skirmishes between ‘willing participants,’ even if the clashes fit the city’s definition of a riot.”

Can you blame them?

Can you blame them one little bit?

The correct answer to these questions is “no,” just in case you were wondering.

‘“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene,’ the bureau said of Saturday’s events. PPB members have been the focus of over 80 days of violent actions directed at the police, which is a major consideration for determining if police resources are necessary to interject between two groups with individuals who appear to be willingly engaging in physical confrontations for short durations.”

This is an interesting development.

Sooo, what we have here is a type of government sanctioned lawlessness.

Huh.

“Allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city isn’t a big departure for the PPB. As the ‘Proud Boys’ cheered, officers launched tear gas and other munitions at anti-fascist counter-protesters [Isn’t this a double negative?  Who are we exactly talking about here?] during a rally in 2017, which left one antifa protester with a gas canister lodged in his head.”

Ouch!

No pictures of this, of course.

And what’s this “allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city” stuff?

It would appear that the “far-right groups” are wreaking havoc on the neo-fascist terrorists, not the city.

“Police gave the ‘Proud Boys’ an escort out of the city following a rally in 2018 that saw the far-right demonstrators outnumbered by anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and ongoing relationship with the leader of ‘Proud Boys’ affiliate group ‘Patriot Prayer,’ judging from texts obtained by Willamette Week.”

Willamette who?

Is naming this person supposed to lend some kind of credence to the information?

Just sayin’.

Anyway, “But relinquishing the act of policing to the brawlers themselves is both new and concerning, especially given the context: Local extremists have escalated their violent tactics in recent weeks, brazenly introducing guns and a lot more weaponry to the melee.”

“Local right-wing protester Skylor Jernigan [Here they go naming names again.], who attended a conservative ‘flag wave’ demonstration in Portland earlier this month alongside Swinney, allegedly shot at Black Lives Matter protesters from inside a car. Nobody was hit.”

“He was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.”

This definitely seems like a case of “selective enforcement” of the law here.

“During the same event, Swinney was seen spraying protesters with chemical irritants and shooting them with rounds from a paintball gun. He faced no immediate consequence for those displays or for pointing a pistol at protesters this past Saturday.”

Nor should he, based on the prior treatment of “the protesters.”

I feel like it’s time to interject a couple applicable sayings here:

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” for example.

And, “What goes around comes around.”

Portland is a HOT mess!

Yes, folks…, Portland, Oregon.

Portland, Oregon is named after Portland, Maine. The Oregon settlement began to be populated in the 1830s, near the end of the Oregon Trail. Its water access provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the city’s early economy. The city’s economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II.  Beginning in the 1960s, Portland became noted for its growing progressive political values, earning it a reputation as a bastion of counterculture.

“Counterculture,” huh?

A counterculture is defined as “a culture whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream society, often in opposition to mainstream cultural norms.”

And, so it began.

Which brings us all the way up to 2020.

Brie Stimson of Fox News asks, “Has Antifa hijacked Portland’s police reform efforts?”

I would say the answer to that question would be “no.”

Antifa and the BLM organization didn’t “hijack” anything…, they instigated the whole thing and then took it to a whole new level…, a level which the liberal local government was more than happy to allow and support.

aport 10

“Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.”

apot 16

‘“When you commit arson with an accelerent in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,’ Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.”

‘“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,’ he said. ‘You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.’”

Ya, Mayor Wheeler…, and beside committing the heinous crime of “being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” ISN’T ATTEMPTED MURDER A CRIME AS WELL???!!!

AND HOW ABOUT ARSON?!

aport 11

ISN’T ARSON A CRIME IN PORTLAND?!

HOW ABOUT HOLDING THESE PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE REAL CRIMES THEY ARE COMMITTING?!

How about that Mr. Mayor?

“A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2×4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.”

“Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.”

Again…, attempted murder.

“The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.”

“Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.”

“Unless a riot is declared?”

Is that like, “One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war?”

‘“I believe that city staff could have died last night,’ Wheeler said.”

Excuse my French…, but, “No $h#t, Mr. Mayor!”

Portland’s police have been out there with both hands tied behind their backs for over two months!

aport 13

‘“I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.’”

Oh, now you won’t tolerate it?

Hasn’t your wonderful city had violent riots in it for like SEVENTY NIGHTS IN A ROW???!!!

aport 12

Peaceful protests went out the window over two months ago.

aport 5

“Wheeler also urged peaceful protesters to avoid gatherings that could turn destructive or violent, according to Oregon Live.”

‘“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,’ Wheeler said. ‘Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.’”

aport 3

Ha!

That’s a good one, Mayor Wheeler.

Where you been for the last two months?

And what are you talking about with all of this “our community” stuff?

The peaceful and law-abiding businesses and people in your “community” have all been burned out, looted, and run out of town.

The rioters you’re condemning now are what’s left of “your community.”

Enjoy.

“The clashes between thousands of protesters and federal agents sent by the Trump administration to guard the federal courthouse stopped after an agreement between Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that called for the agents to begin drawing down their presence in Portland’s downtown on July 30.”

“Then some instigators moved on to other police buildings across the city to cause problems.”

“Wednesday night’s violence in a residential neighborhood on the east side of the city began after a group of about 100 people [I prefer to call them terrorists, or criminals] gathered in a nearby park for a rally advertised on social media by the group Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front.”

Cute.

Is that like the YMCA or something?

“[Their] slogan is, ‘No cops. No prisons. Total abolition.’”

Well, I guess not.

“The group then marched to the precinct.”

‘“Hurting people and trying to trap people in a building and burn them up, it’s just completely awful,’ Portland Fire & Rescue Lt. Damon Simmons reiterated in the news conference, according to FOX 12.”

Reeeeeeeeally?

aport 8

Thank you for that bit of insight, Lt. Simmons.

I can see you must be a real up-and-comer in the department.

“Wheeler said the city anticipates ‘additional planned attacks on public buildings’ in the coming days and said he was giving the police leeway to do what they needed to do to counter those plans as long as it can be done without threatening peaceful protesters.”

aport 9

“On Wednesday, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said rioters aren’t forwarding the cause of racial injustice protesters. ‘Portlanders need to send a strong message that enough is enough,’ he said. ‘This movement is really powerful, but the violence has taken away from it.’”

Ya think?!

Yes, Portlanders…, we will only put up with our city being burned, looted, graffitied, and officers and other people being attacked, for seventy straight nights!

That’s our limit!

We draw the line at seventy-one nights!

If these liberals weren’t so sad, they’d be hilarious…, but no one is laughing.

We have now officially entered “The Twilight Zone!”

Now that I’m thinking about it, Rod Serling may have thought this premise would have been too unbelievable, even for “The Twilight Zone!”

What exactly am I talking about here?

Acording to Lee Brown of The New York Post, “St. Louis lawyers who confronted protesters with guns are under investigation.”

adastl 12

“The St. Louis lawyers who pulled weapons on protesters marching past their home are being investigated for possible criminal charges, the city’s lead prosecutor has revealed.”

adastl 2

Excuse me, Mr. Lee Brown, but your reporting here is a little deceiving.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not protesters “marching past their home.”

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

adastl 1

The “protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, threatened to kill them, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

adastl 3

This is quite a different scenario as opposed to Mr. Brown’s description.

“Mark and Patricia McCloskey — who went viral after brandishing an AR-15-style rifle and a silver-colored handgun, respectively — were the only ones to lodge a police report over Sunday’s confrontation, insisting they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community, the St. Louis American noted.”

adastl 4

And based on all of the pictures and video and witnesses of the incident, along with all of the news reports showing what “protesters” had done and proved they were capable of doing, I don’t think there is any question that Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey had every right to fear for their lives.

“But the husband-and-wife lawyers are being probed by police and prosecutors for possible threats against the crowd, authorities announced Monday.”

OK…, here’s where the episode of “The Twilight Zone” begins.

adastl 10

‘“I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protestors were met by guns,’ St. Louis Prosecutor Kimberly Gardner said.”

adastl 9

Again…, Excuse me, Kimberly Gardner, but your description of the “events” are quite misleading.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not “peaceful protesters,” as you claim.

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the peaceful protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

The “peaceful protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, then threatened to kill the couple, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

This, again, is quite a different scenario as opposed to Ms. Gardner’s description.

‘“We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated,’ she insisted, saying her office was ‘currently working with the public and police to investigate these events.’”

adastl 13

‘“Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable,’ Gardner warned.”

Kimberly Gardner, who is a George Soros surrogate by the way, is “alarmed” at how the “protesters” were treated!  

adastl 8

adastl 15

And the “protesters” rights must be protected at all costs!

And those evil people protecting themselves and their pets, and their home, on their own property, will be held accountable for not allowing themselves to be the brunt of these “protesters” expression of violence.

“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call … The Twilight Zone.” – Rod Serling

Like I said in the beginning, this whole scenario might be just too unbelievable for even “The Twilight Zone!”

“Mark McCloskey has insisted in an interview that they only grabbed the weapons after being ‘threatened with our lives,’ comparing it to ‘storming the Bastille.’”

adastl 5

“In their police report, the couple also claimed they only grabbed the weapons after they ‘observed multiple subjects who were armed,’ the St. Louis American said.”

“Missouri law states that a citizen is committing unlawful use of a weapon if they ‘exhibit, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner,’ the paper noted. It would likely be a Class D felony punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine not to exceed $5,000.”

That applies to the “protesters” as well, right?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for any of the “peaceful protesters” to be charged, however.

“There is also a, so-called, ‘Castle Doctrine’ that allows people to use deadly force to attack an intruder on their property, the paper stressed.”

Bingo!

Well, there you go!

“The couple’s attorney, Albert S. Watkins, told the paper that the pair ‘acted lawfully on their property.’”

‘“Their actions were borne solely of fear and apprehension, the genesis of which was not race-related. In fact, the agitators responsible for the trepidation were white,’ Watkins stressed in a statement.”

‘“The peaceful protesters were not the subject of scorn or disdain by the McCloskeys,’ Watkins said. ‘To the contrary, they were expecting and supportive of the message of the protesters.’”

“The scandal also led to a Democrat running for a state Senate seat to refuse a donation from the McCloskeys, instead giving it to the gun safety campaign group Moms Demand Action, the paper said.”

What else would we come to expect from democrat politicians these days?

adastl 14

“The protesters were en route to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who joined in anti-cop protests.”

In my estimation, these “protesters” are actually pretty lucky they stormed up the driveway they did.

There are many driveways I know of where the “protesters” may have been treated with less “consideration,” let’s say.

Oh, Howard, you’re such a tool…, and such a fool!

Yes, Howard, you’re such a confused, racist, ignorant, liberal tool.

At least that’s what my anonymous sources tell me!

Hey…, if it works for The Washington Post, CNN, etc….

Yes, I’ve heard Howard Stern, and the cast of aging turds on his show, return to berating people who choose to not wear masks.

amask 4

They label these people as “irresponsible,” “dangerous,” and even as potential murderers!

amask 9

Just because they balk against the foolishness of wearing a mask 24/7.

amask 10

It’s mind-numbing how Howard and his sidekicks can say nothing about how dangerous rioters and looters are, and have been, in the City of New York and around the country, but God forbid some poor person chooses to not wear a stupid mask!

amask 12

The shame!

People can riot, loot, burn, vandalize, attack police officers and others without being arrested…, but don’t you dare refuse to wear a mask…, unless you’re a protester that is!

But it’s not just being a protester…, you have to be the right kind of protester, in their eyes.

Hey, I know!

Maybe what these people who don’t want to wear masks should do is, get some of their friends together, show up and protest the store, loot it, take what they want, and then burn it down!

That would be acceptable behavior in the eyes of these liberal zealots.

Anyway…, let’s get back to Howard.

I know Howard has been hiding in his home, deathly afraid of the coronavirus, for over three months.

And now, he finally has a valid reason to go into hiding!

According to Mike Fleming Jr. for “Deadline.com,” “The war of words between Howard Stern and his former friend (I believe using the word ‘friend’ is stretching it a bit), President Donald Trump, and the president’s son Donald Jr. escalated last weekend when Junior retweeted a conservative missive that the SiriusXM broadcaster appeared in blackface and used the N-word multiple times in a pay-per-view New Year’s Eve special — in 1993.”

amask 1

“Trump Jr. has been jabbing at Stern since the radio host has spoken critically of his father’s slow response to the pandemic [that’s Howard’s opinion], and his polarizing comments in the wake of the George Floyd murder and subsequent protests [that’s also in Howard’s opinion]. Stern in turn has jabbed back.  Then, Trump Jr. retweeted the clip of the performance.”

amask 6

What “polarizing comments?”

All of the comments I’ve heard from The President have been completely appropriate.  President Trump called the Floyd video “hard to watch” and “a disgrace.”  He has called for equal justice under the law and fair treatment by the police.  He also said, “We can’t let what happened to George Floyd happen again.”

amask 13

“Polarizing?”

I guess what Mr. Fleming must be referring to as “polarizing” would be President Trump’s desire to avoid these cities from being vandalized, looted and burned.

“Polarizing,” only, I guess, in the sense that you have Pro-America people on one side and Anti-America people on the other.

“The clip [of Howard Stern using the “N” word] was first posted by filmmaker Tariq Nasheed, and it was interspersed with Stern’s recent appearance on ‘The View,’ where he claimed during the appearance that he’d never used the racial slur.”

amask 2

amask 3

You have obviously intentionally “misremembered” this , Howard.

“In the clip, Stern was reportedly playing the part of Ted Danson, with Sherman Hemsley playing Whoopi Goldberg, Danson’s girlfriend at the time. It was picked up by the unabashedly pro-Trump newspaper New York Post.”

Now, honestly…, do we ever hear the New York Times or The Washington Post defined as “unabashedly” anti-Trump newspapers?

No.

Just sayin’.

“Stern addressed the retroactive controversy this morning on his show. He expressed some regret for lampooning Goldberg and Danson’s decision to dress in blackface for a Friar’s Club roast, but said that he has evolved. He charged that the Trumps have not.”

amask 5

Oh, so, Howard has “evolved,” and along with his evolution he has gained the wisdom to pass judgement on others as to their level of racial evolution.

Does anybody else the level of this pompous ass’ hypocrisy?

Howard goes on to say, ‘“Over the years, I did change the show. A lot of people who did like that humor, where I was completely pulling my pants off, those people are pissed off at me now. They think I’m a sellout and I’m not doing a good show anymore.’”

And those people would be right.

You have become a liberal “sellout,” and your show really isn’t very good anymore…, at least the shows you bother to actually be there a couple times a week.

amask 7

‘“Attacking me during the coronavirus and Black Lives Matter is absolutely f***ing crazy, concentrating on me.’”

I’m sure you think it is, Howard.

You know what they say about people who live in glass houses, don’t you?

‘“You want to concentrate on me and bully me, and expose me, with all the TV shows I’ve done?”

Oh, so, just because you’ve done a lot of shows, that somehow makes any criticism of you unjustified?

I’ve heard you freely throw around words like “racist and “liar” where The President is concerned.

Well…, right back at ya big guy!

How fast do you think all of your “Hollywood friends” are running away from you at the moment?

We should probably use the term “ran away” at this point, because it’s already a done deal.

‘“I paid a fortune to fix me, it ain’t easy,’ Stern continued.”

Some would even suggest that you may need to spend a little more money in this area.

amask 8

“Said longtime radio partner Robin Quivers: ‘I have long been a proponent of free speech…’”

“Free” meaning speech that you agree with, obviously.

Yes…, we all wish we could be as enlightened as you and Howard, Ms. Quivers.

Please let me remind you that your idea of “entertainment” includes watching one of your staff Neanderthals sip wine through his a$$hole!

You and your crew also likes listening to “Fartman” expel gas on your show, while you joke about the Columbine students after their nightmare, and refer to one of your usual contacts as Gary “the retard.”

And you perceive yourselves as being enlightened and the rest of us as clueless hillbillies?

Sleepless…, uh, I mean Clueless in Seattle!

Seattle, one of the most liberal cities in America, is on the verge of absolutely falling apart.

ablondie 4

It’s like an episode of “The Walking Dead!”

ablondie 9

ablondie 10

The city is being torn apart by those with a brain, and those without a brain.

ablondie 11

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “The leadership in Seattle appeared to be in disarray [Wow! That’s about as nicely as you can describe that situation!] on Friday after the city’s embattled mayor called the protesters who took over an ‘autonomous zone’ in the city ‘patriotic’ while the official who ordered police to flee the nearby precinct has refused to come forward.”

Say what?!

Wow.  These people really do think we’re all as stupid as they are!

ablondie 5

“Despite the slow-moving disaster and protesters calling on Mayor Jenny Durkan and Chief Carmen Best to resign, the mayor resisted the call and raised eyebrows when she joked about considering a ‘Thelma & Louise’ moment in an interview, referring to the 1991 movie about two women on the run from the law.”

Again…, say what?!

They call this an “autonomous zone.”

I would say it’s more like “The Twilight Zone!”

ablondie 7

“At Thursday’s news conference, Best told reporters it wasn’t her decision to leave the precinct, while Durkan also denied responsibility, according to ‘The Stranger,’ a Seattle-based newspaper.”

‘“We were asked to do an operational plan in case we needed to leave,’ Best said. ‘The decision was made. We’re still evaluating about how that change came about but it didn’t come from me.’”

ablondie 8

“Despite the fact that police cannot gain full access to the police station, Durkan tried to downplay the situation on the ground. She claimed that Trump was wrong to call the protesters ‘domestic terrorists.’”

Ha! Ya…, he should’ve included you in that group, Mayor Durkan!

‘“It’s simply not true. Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. It’s patriotism,’ she said.”

ablondie 6

We would all agree with that, Ms. Mayor…, but what about the slight matters of looting, burning, vandalism…, oh, and forcibly taking over square blocks of a city, along with a police precinct that you seem to have overlooked?

“Durkan has tweeted that the protest is ‘a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world.’”

ablondie 2

“KIRO 7 reported, citing police, that demonstrators moved barricades near the police station and threw rocks and ‘improvised explosives’ at officers on several occasions. Best reportedly said that 25 cops were injured since the protests began.”

This is what Durkan describes as, “Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color?”

These people have all lost their minds.

This situation with Mayor Durkin, and many other of these liberal mayors as well, reminds me of an old “Blondie” cartoon that I cut out of the newspaper at the time and kept.

ablondie 1

The cartoon showed Blondie’s husband, Dagwood Bumstead, at work talking with his boss, Mr. Dithers.  The cartoon went something like this:

Mr. Dithers: C’mon, Bumstead!  Come out and have a drink with me and the boys before you head home.

Dagwood: Okay, Mr. Dithers…, just let me call Blondie first.

Mr. Dithers: Call Blondie first?!  Aren’t you the boss around your house, Bumstead?

Dagwood:  Of course, I am!

Mr. Dithers: Well, why do you have to call then?

Dagwood:  Because, if I don’t call, Blondie won’t let me be the boss anymore.

I know this correlation is a bit of a stretch, but I hope you can see what I’m referring to here.

The point is, Dagwood isn’t really the one “in charge,” and neither is Mayor Durkin.

‘“You [the police officers] fought [Actually they were prohibited from fighting.  It was more like just standing there, like sitting ducks.] for days to protect (The East Precinct). I asked you to stand on that line. Day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course [by their beloved mayor] early two weeks in, it seems like an insult [Oh, it was an insult!] to you and our community,’ Best said in a video, according to the station.”

“On Thursday, the crowd continued to occupy the six-block downtown area, named the ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’ (CHAZ) because of its location in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.”

“President Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in an exclusive interview Thursday that his administration is ‘not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists.’”

‘“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle. I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle,’ Trump told Faulkner. ‘I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.’”

“It’s clear @realDonaldTrump doesn’t understand what’s happening on five square blocks of our City. Cal Anderson and Capitol Hill has for decades been a place for free speech, community, and self-expression,” Durkan tweeted out in response.

“Durkan has insisted that CHAZ was ‘not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection, but a peaceful expression of the community’s grief following the death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis.’”

Just because you say something isn’t what it obviously is doesn’t change the fact that it is what it obviously is, Mayor Durkan.

I hope that makes sense to you…, it makes sense to me.

WINNING!
