The Hot Takes: #Charlottesville

Here are some takeaways in the aftermath of the events in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday August 12, 2017.

I disavow all people and groups associated with, or representing, Nazism, national socialism, white supremacy, and the KKK.

Nazism was dead and gone long ago.  It’s only trotted out by simple-minded fools who are trying to be edgy, or when there is a legitimate target to smear, as the corpse of David Duke keeps doing.

President Trump disavowed David Duke 17 years ago. Now he endorses Trump as revenge. Dukes comments wreak of a paid smear job.

National Socialism is of not the Right; it’s of the Left. National. Socialism. Is. Not. Of. The. Right.  Nazi LARPers are not a part of the right, let alone the One Real Alt-Right.

“White Nationalism” makes no sense. Only Americans with a vague sense of white/black/other nationality distinctions use the phrase.

White Nationalist

Most Americans don’t stop to realize that Swedes, Poles, French, German, Brits, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, Dutch, Finns, Swiss, etc, are ALL WHITE, but of DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES.  Have Europeans found solidarity in the color of their skin, or do they value a much deeper understanding of their own distinct peoples and culture? When the white nationalist William Wallace fought the white imperialist English, was he the good guy or bad guy?

The more I think about the events of that day, and how they were reported, the whole thing seems like a huge set up.

The police did not do a good job, as local politicians kept saying, but a horrible one. Any time there are opposing groups, each carrying sticks and shields and wearing helmets, police should seek to keep the groups apart in the name peace.  They did the opposite. As images show, the police not only stood down, but funneled the opposing groups into one another. As you can see here, the dhouivfuiaa0_um.jpgpolice forced one group through one stair exit from the elevated park right into the awaiting homemade flame-thrower of a peaceful protester.

The police stood idly by and fled when it got hot.

Who ordered the police to stand down?

The injured and families of the deceased should have a case against the municipality of Charlottesville and the Commonwealth of Virginia

It was also remarkable to me that in all of the coverage of the events that day, very few media pundits or politicians mentioned the word Antifa. The governor of VA was asked specifically to denounce them and their violence as he just did the nazi LARPers.  He refused.

Mentioning birddogging Antifa wouldn’t serve the narrative that there is only one violent group, and that group is directly tied to the President.  The media’s persistence that President Trump is responsible for, and hasn’t condemned neo-nazi’s strongly enough reveals that unity and healing is not really the goal, but smearing and de-legitimizing. (See David Duke above).

It was also surprising to learn that the organizer of the event,

Feb. 2017 Shaggy Lib              Aug. 2017 Clean-cut nazi

Jason Kessler, was a left-wing Obama voter who was involved in Occupy Wall Street protests.  There’s more to come on Kessler, but it seems strange that someone who was into leftist subversive activities in his recent past is all of the sudden right wing?  Something fishy going on here…

The events of this past weekend are eerily similar to the successful Ukrainian coup of 2013.

The planned rally of “Unite the Right” is nearly identical to a neo-nazi movement that was part of a successful coup in the Ukraine in 2013 and 2014 that culminated in the ouster of the then Ukrainian President.  The movement was widely supported among US politicians for its potential to install US-friendly/controlled government right next door to Russia.  Here’s US Senator John McCain standing with neo-nazi leaders in the Ukraine in 2013.

At the “Unite the Right” rally, people in video can be heard marching and chanting “blood and soil, blood and soil”.  This is 19th century German folk language.  Americans do not speak like this.

Someone at the top is organizing and funding this kabuki theater and they’re trying to tarnish the President, his supporters, and destroy the fabric of the US.

The End of the 1st Amendment

At least the portion applied to freedom of religion.

A Minnesota Town Wants Religious War Memorials, So Satanists Offer One With a “Baphometic Bowl of Wisdom”

The City of Belle Plaine has received pressure from atheists and Satanists to remove a war memorial that

belleplainemonumenttstfeatured a cross. After their efforts failed, the Satanic Temple proposed their own monument, called the “Baphometic Bowl of Wisdom.”

It is a black, steel cube. Inverted pentagrams (a universal Satanic symbol) are etched into the sides of the monument. A pitch black, overturned soldier’s helmet is planted on the top.

It is named after Baphomet, an androgynous half-goat, half-man demon.

Satanists are claiming that this monument respects veterans. And the city of Belle Plaine has accepted it.

I wonder how many years out America is from restricting or amending the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. Or more likely, no legal change will be made, but rather the spirit of freedom and tolerance for other beliefs, which is quickly eroding, will simply disappear.

This is the catch-22 of American freedom that allows the existence of beliefs and behaviors that undermine the core values it rests on.

For example, Libertarianism is completely untenable; as follows. Libertarianism > freedom of commerce, association, and travel > libertarian values allow no restrictions on who can move into the community or what values they should hold > new arrivals much prefer authoritarian policies > poof! Your free society is gone. Libertarian values restrict the group’s ability to maintain its libertarian community. Sown into core of the system is its own self-defeating value.

Same is true for Christian communities (or those who wished for one). When your societal ideal rests on freedom of religion, tolerance, acceptance, and not the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you’ll soon find you have no ability to influence your culture or community. Your own values require you to support the rights and access and influence of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and even Satanic worship.

Well, that certainly is diverse.

 

2017 Reading

As opposed to how I used to do it in high school, I actually read books now.  I can’t believe how easy it was to get through class without actually reading the material, and I probably missed out on some classics.  I have to re-read Animal Farm, but I digress….

I have more books that I’m currently reading than have completed for 2017.

Dick Cheney Is For It – Why You Should Be Weary

Former US Vice President, Dick Cheney, on Monday, began his attempts to prime the pump for a US war with Russia.  Speaking at the Economic Times & Global Business Summit, Mr. Cheney made the case that the alleged Russian interference in the US 2016 presidential election “could be considered an act of war”.

It has been interesting to watch US media spend so much time on the Trump/Russia/election angle. It seemed their approach was to undermine the credibility and legitimacy of the President.  Maybe they could get him into a bigger scandal; get him, or someone in his inner circle to make a false statement about any communications with someone in Russia in order to prosecute a process foul.  But it seems our government and Deep State operatives, of which Dick Cheney is certainly a part, wants much more than that. I thought that after Hillary Clinton lost, they’d slow down with the war with Russia talks. Remember, during the 2016 election season, candidates from both parties were calling for the enforcement of no-fly zones over Syria. People with half a brain then knew that meant war with Russia. (The war-monger John McCain has been calling for war with Russia in Syria for more than 18 months now.)

But back to Dick Cheney. You know what? Never mind. We can probably trust a guy who was the Secretary of Defense during the first Iraq war, served on the Council of Foreign Relations, was CEO of an American multinational corporation, and one of the world’s largest oil field services companies, and was totally right about Iraq’s WMD’s after 2001.

Fake News – CIA Edition

Newly declassified CIA documents  show that the CIA was paying journalists and media companies to plant stories or suppress others. Among them, the New York Times, Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal.

But that was way back in the 1950’s – 1970’s. Nothing like that happens today.

Of course a coordinated political hit must take place against AG Jeff Sessions before he rolls up all of the previous President’s DOJ officials or investigates any money laundering schemes (involving this guy who just suicided himself).

Fake News

As a primer on Fake News, here’s what you need to know:

Fake News is a powerful rhetorical shiv when applied correctly. It’s a term that’s so broad and all-encompassing you’ll often see it invoked by anyone of any political leaning.  But, it’s most effective when wielded with a marked truth about the dishonesty of the news-faker. This is why the use of Fake News now belongs exclusively to the right. So much so, that the Washington Post has called for an end to the term’s use, because it was so quickly, and viciously, and accurately applied to the mainstream media (MSM).

Per this Google trend chart below, you’ll see the explosion of the term “fake news” at the climax of the 2016 US presidential election. Many would have you believe that purposely false news stories made their rounds on social media during that time and may have swung the election results. But I’m here to help you set the record straight.

fake-news-capture

The real intent of the political left’s (and their foot soldiers in the MSM) use of the term “fake news” (before it was turned around on them) was to discredit real and legitimate stories and scandals. Nothing exemplifies this better than a November 6th tweet by Hillary Clinton communications person, Jennifer Palmieri.

You get that? Without knowing if a new allegation would surface, or the nature of any future allegation, or Continue reading
