Chutzpah

Chutzpah: (Yiddish) Utter audacity, effrontery or impudence; supreme self-confidence; exaggerated self-opinion

If there is ever an honest accounting of the Obama Residency, Barack would be heading for prison. But he would have lots of his friends and supporters going with him to keep him company.

How to make an Obamanation:

1 part chutzpah
1 part hubris
2 heaping shovelfuls of bullshit.
Unlimited amounts of Other People’s Money

Mix well and spread across the country.

Religious Fanatics And The Mentally Ill Have No Sense Of Humor

Democrats be freakin’, burn it on the weekend . . .

Politico:

Trump shares doctored video of Biden with ‘manipulated media’ Twitter tag

President Donald Trump on Wednesday shared a doctored video of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that was flagged by Twitter, the latest instance of the White House and its allies spreading misinformation online.

Shortly after midnight, Trump retweeted a segment of Biden’s speech Tuesday in Florida, where the former vice president sought to rally Latino voters alongside celebrity surrogates such as Luis Fonsi, the Puerto Rican-American singer.

During the campaign event, Biden began playing Fonsi’s hit 2017 song “Despacito” from what appeared to be his mobile phone, raising the device to his lectern’s microphones and bobbing his head along to the music.

But in the edited video retweeted by the president — which Twitter labeled as “manipulated media” — the song played by Biden is the 1988 protest rap “F— tha Police” by the hip hop group N.W.A.

“What is this all about?” Trump wrote in an accompanying message.

Dear Politico:

It was a J-O-K-E. Lighten up, Francis.

Please contact a proctologist to schedule surgery to remove the stick from your ass.

FACT CHECK: A priest, a rabbi, and Donald Trump did NOT walk into a bar.

This is totes real and undoctored.

What is the scientific prognosis for someone with senile dementia?

The Mad Scientists of America consulted with chicken entrails and pooped this out:

Scientific American has never endorsed a presidential candidate in its 175-year history. This year we are compelled to do so. We do not do this lightly.

The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its people—because he rejects evidence and science. The most devastating example is his dishonest and inept response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost more than 190,000 Americans their lives by the middle of September. He has also attacked environmental protections, medical care, and the researchers and public science agencies that help this country prepare for its greatest challenges. That is why we urge you to vote for Joe Biden, who is offering fact-based plans to protect our health, our economy and the environment. These and other proposals he has put forth can set the country back on course for a safer, more prosperous and more equitable future.

The pandemic would strain any nation and system, but Trump’s rejection of evidence and public health measures have been catastrophic in the U.S. He was warned many times in January and February about the onrushing disease, yet he did not develop a national strategy to provide protective equipment, coronavirus testing or clear health guidelines. Testing people for the virus, and tracing those they may have infected, is how countries in Europe and Asia have gained control over their outbreaks, saved lives, and successfully reopened businesses and schools. But in the U.S., Trump claimed, falsely, that “anybody that wants a test can get a test.” That was untrue in March and remained untrue through the summer. Trump opposed $25 billion for increased testing and tracing that was in a pandemic relief bill as late as July. These lapses accelerated the spread of disease through the country—particularly in highly vulnerable communities that include people of color, where deaths climbed disproportionately to those in the rest of the population.

Mad Scientists of America (MSA) is an organization of angry Illuminati types who use the scientific method to make all their decision. The brilliance of these men and women (mostly men cuz everybody knows that girls can’t science) is matched only by their physical attractiveness.

What’s that? There is no organization called “Mad Scientists of America?” Scientific American is owned by a German company? SA’s editorial board is basically Laura Helmuth, the Editor-in-Chief?

Showing Clips Of Democrats Gone Wild Is Racist

Try to wrap your head around this one from Joan Donovan at the MIT Technology Review:

How an overload of riot porn is driving conflict in the streets

When Kyle Rittenhouse shot and murdered protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, it wasn’t just the act of a lone vigilante; it was a direct consequence of white militia groups’ organizing on social media.

Since June, right-wing media makers have recorded and circulated videos of violent altercations at protests in cities including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Portland, Oregon. Fed into a media ecosystem with an established bias toward highlighting violence and rioting, the videos have mobilized white militia and vigilante groups to take up arms against Black Lives Matter and “antifa” protesters. This feedback circuit has created a self-fulfilling cycle where white vigilantes feel justified in menacing and physically attacking racial justice protesters—and inspire others to do the same.

Research on social movements has long focused on the ways that media mobilizes people to take direct action. Audio and video clips from protests can evoke an emotional and visceral reaction in those who see them. Over the last decade, we’ve seen this emerge most often with calls for racial and economic justice.

This past summer, the recorded murder of George Floyd—just one in a seemingly endless line of merciless and vicious events perpetrated by police against Black people, from Selma to Mike Brown, from Rodney King to Sandra Bland and Jacob Blake—motivated millions of people worldwide to protest against police brutality.

I counted four major misstatements of material facts in that first paragraph alone. When you build your argument upon a giant turd, shit happens.

Because right-wing reactionaries do not have the same kind of experience in organizing street protests as the left, they instead rely heavily on social media—particularly Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter—to mobilize crowds. Their efforts to counter the wave of public support for Black Lives Matter protests have made extensive use of this tactic.

As a scholar of social movements and media studies, I see an alarming split between the types of content consumed by right-wing reactionaries and left-wing social justice advocates. Given the way media accounts shape public perceptions about protest and define who has recourse to the “legitimate use of violence,” the kinds of content shared within these hyperpartisan media systems play a powerful yet often invisible role in mobilizing white vigilante groups. If social-media companies do not act swiftly to stop calls for violence against protesters, the situation can only get worse.

Since the George Floyd protests, conservative media outlets including Fox News (particularly Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity), One America News, Glenn Beck’s BlazeTV, and right-wing YouTubers have been covering Black Lives Matter and other left-wing protests daily, specifically highlighting instances of violence, fighting, and property damage. This coverage has come to dominate the right-wing narrative in a new way, flipping the script to suggest that Black protesters—demonstrating because they fear police violence—are themselves a threat to white people.

Mainstream media bias toward covering violence in protests is well studied, best encapsulated by the saying “If it bleeds, it leads.” Most protests are largely peaceful, but “Citizens gather, grieve, and leave” is no story at all. This directs a disproportionate amount of attention across the entire media ecosystem to violent protesters. Now, with social media as a broadcast system, the right-wing media has upped the ante.

According to analysis I conducted using MediaCloud, a research tool from MIT and Harvard, right-wing media outlets wrote five to six times more articles about Seattle’s “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” than did center or left media. What has been a minor storyline among left-wing audiences has been dramatically overemphasized by right-wing media because these protests provided plenty of visceral content for online content creators. In one case, Fox News manipulated photos to make protesters appear more ominous and threatening, while other right-wing outlets falsely reported that the occupying protesters were extorting local businesses.

These narratives have been intensified and supplemented by the work of right-wing adversarial media-makers like Elijah Schaffer and Andy Ngo, who collect videos of conflict at public protests and recirculate them to their online audiences. Both have even gone “undercover” by posing as protesters to capture footage for their channels, seeking to name and shame those marching. Their videos are edited, decontextualized, and shared among audiences hungry for a new fix of “riot porn,” which instantly goes viral across the right-wing media ecosystem with the aid of influential pundits and politicians, including President Donald Trump. The footage has a hypnotic, almost balletic quality, designed to influence and overwhelm the sense-making capacity of watchers consuming it from a safe distance online.

Riot porn is different from videos of abuse and violence carried out by police, and we should not confuse one for the other. In the recording of the George Floyd murder, the video mobilized hundreds of thousands of people outraged that Floyd’s killer had not been arrested. With riot porn, what moves someone from watching to showing up is the potential for participating in a violent altercation. The motivating factor is the hope to live out fantasies of taking justice into their own hands, à la Dirty Harry, the film series about a rogue cop who shirks protocol and murders at will.

I have seen every Dirty Harry movie that was produced, and I can say with assurance that Inspector Callahan doesn’t murder anyone in any of those movies.

Oh, he kills lots of people, and he shoots more people than he kills. But each of those shootings is justified. He never even wounds or kills any innocent bystanders – every person he shoots is a certified bad guy. In fact, in the second movie in the series (Magnum Force) he takes on vigilante cops!

Ms. Donovan objects to people making videos of Democrats Gone Wild at mostly peaceful Antifa/BLM protest riots. She claims that the videos are deceptively edited.

Che3ck out the videos below. If you saw the complete videos in context, you would see that there is no violence contained in them, just expressions of love for all mankind.

Dear Democrats: You Built This

For several months now the Democrat party has been cheerleading the BLM/Antifa riots across the country. At the Democrat convention this summer not one Democrat condemned the violence. Democrat mayors issued “stand-down” orders to the police while their cities literally burned. The news media alternated between denying there was any violence and blaming President Trump for causing it. The term “mostly peaceful” has become a punchline.

Although no one has admitted it, the Democrats were operating on the theory that all the street violence would lead them to electoral victory in November. Some of them seemed to believe that this was the beginning of “The Revolution” that Leftists have been dreaming of for decades.

Then the polls showed that Americans are starting to turn decisively away from violence and chaos and towards law and order. President Trump’s approval ratings started going up, up, and away! Suddenly, Democrats are remembering that they like cops and the rule of law and stuff.

Kamala Harris (pronounced “Kumm-uh-luh”) is the Democrats’ real nominee for President who will be running the country if the Democrats’ “Biden Bait & Switch” strategery is successful. She was all-in on “burn, baby, burn” until a couple weeks ago. Now she is Hardcase Harris, the lock-em-up prosecutor.

Sorry Kamala, but you built this. You and your party sowed the wind. Now you are reaping the whirlwind. Reap it, bitch.

Never Forget

I’ll never forget where I was that day when I heard the news. I was sitting right where I’m sitting right now, doing pretty much the same thing I was doing then. Then my phone rang.

“Dude! Hillary is dead, man,” my buddy Ray-Ray said. “I just saw them loading her body into a coroner’s van. She was as lifeless as a sack of potatoes.”

As we all know now, Hillary wasn’t dead. She is undead. Apparently, someone forgot to pack a lunch for her and she was getting weak from hunger. Luckily, Chelsea always keeps a few small immigrant kids on hand in case her mother needs to feed. As soon as Hillary was able to chug down the life forces of the kids she was back to her normal self. (It only looked like she was drinking their blood.)

Never forget this important fact: The Democrat party has worse candidates than Hillary Clinton.

You Can’t Make A Biden Omelet Without Killing A Few Americans

Democrats “know” that America is at war. America is at war with the forces of evil, personified by Donald Trump.

War is hell. In war, people die, economies are wrecked, and cities get burned to the ground. We cannot shy away from doing what must be done to defeat the ultimate evil in the universe.

Because of Trump, millions of Americans have already died from the Trump virus, and thousands of innocent black men have been murdered in the streets by white supremacist cops.

If it is announced that a vaccine for the Trump virus is available before November 3rd, that could be enough to tip the scales in favor of Trump. It is therefore imperative that no such vaccine be released until after the election.

Trump’s storm troopers are trying to crush the brave resistance fighters in places like Portland, Seattle, and Chicago.

Trump’s ICE fascists are attempting to disenfranchise millions of undocumented Americans from Mexico and Central America.

Last but not least, Trump’s economic policies are hurting our good friends and allies in China. The Chinese have done nothing to us except endure hardship in order to make low-cost appliances and other consumer goods for our Walmarts.

If we have to destroy our economy, shred our Constitution, and allow Americans to die, that is a small price to pay to defeat Donald Trump.

Some People Want To Be Lied To

A report from Cheeselandia:

Instant replay:

“I’m not dismissing the importance of the Losers/Suckers comment. It is very important, and I believe The Atlantic’s reporting.”

For the record, I don’t believe the Atlantic’s reporting. What they are claiming he said would be totally out of character for Trump. He has a long history of supporting veterans and veterans causes that predates his presidential ambitions.

But Ms. Alter believes it, and she thinks it should matter to voters. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that she believes it BECAUSE she thinks it should matter to voters. The whole reason that the Atlantic ran the story is they thought it would hurt Trump.

According to the Lamestream media, anything that makes Trump look bad is:

1. Objectively true
2. Very important

Because the sources for the story are anonymous we don’t know what their motivations are or whether they even exist. The media has less than zero curiosity about the alleged sources. All they care about is pushing the “Orange Man Bad” narrative.

Any negative story about Trump is rushed to publication before it can be challenged or debunked. Later, when the inevitable debunking takes place, the media simply drops the story. They never even admit the story was false. This allows them to keep citing a narrative-supporting lie, like the Charlottesville “Both Sides” myth, or the “Sarah Palin caused the Gabby Giffords shooting” blood libel. (The latter falsehood led to the founding of this blog.)

If you challenge a narrative-supporting hit piece on Trump, the media will fact check your debunking more thoroughly than they fact-checked the original story.

If you take a sales training class they will tell you that most purchase decisions are made emotionally and then rationalized intellectually. This is how a married guy with three kids who lives in the suburbs and works in a city ends up with a 4-wheel drive pickup truck. It is also why the SUV has replaced the minivan as the most popular mom-car. (SUVs are cool, minivans are not.)

The news media is emotionally invested in defeating Donald Trump. It affects their perceptions, their judgment, and their honesty. It also provides us with a few laughs.

Lame Joke:

Donald Trump challenges Joe Biden to a footrace. Despite his size, Trump easily outruns Biden. The media report says, “Biden finishes in second place, Trump comes in next to last.”

Only A Democrat Would Be Dumb Enough To Believe This Fake News

Same shit, different day.

Jeffrey Goldberg at The Atlantic:

Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

I don’t believe it. This would be so out of character for Trump. The sources are anonymous. The story is recycled fake news. The timing is too convenient. The reaction to the story is astroturfed. But the biggest reason I know this is bullshit is that this is not a story about a real person. The Trump depicted is the TDS boogeyman Trump that the Left has been trying to sell us since the day Trump came down the escalator to announce his candidacy.

This story was debunked in 2018. John Bolton was still working for Trump back then. Since then he was fired and wrote a tell-all book. If it had happened, Bolton would have known.

Guess whose tell-all doesn’t mention this incident?

Brace yourselves. We are entering the “Kitchen Sink” phase of the campaign. I predict there will be at least one new woman falsely accusing Trump of sexual assault. She will probably be fronted by Gloria Allred. We will also hear from the Khans, the McCains, and LTC “Poppin’ Fresh” Vindman. Stormy Daniels will be back. (Michael Avenatti will not.)

The Kitchen Sink stories will share some common traits:

1. Vague at key points and difficult to prove or disprove.
2. Relies on anonymous sources.
3. Little or no testimony under oath.
4. Urgent action demanded.
5. Accusers will vanish on November 4th.

Regardless of whether the story is old fake news or new fake news, and no matter how unbelievable they may sound to us, the news media and other Democrats will accept each of them as gospel. They will claim that the stories are not just credible and plausible – they’ll say the stories are persuasive, convincing, and compelling.

Any attempt to poke holes in their stories or to impeach the credibility of the accusers will result in a vigorous doxing, de-platforming, deflowering, cancellation and defenestration of the offending fascist rape-enabling racists. If Trump denies the allegations that denial will be considered conclusive proof of his guilt. Anyone defending Trump is presumed guilty as well.

Attacks on Trump will not be subject to the same rules as replies by Trump and Trump supporters. The current rule for our side seems to be, “If a snowflake complains about something you said, you lose. If you complain about something a snowflake said, you lose that one too.”

Attacks on Trump will frequently be unhinged and devoid of facts. Facebook and Twitter won’t care. They don’t care until you try to defend Trump. They aren’t trying to keep the truth from getting out, they just want to slow it down.

Here is another reason I know this story was bogus – the friendly responses were ready and waiting when the story was published. I expect to see more of that.

If a story has one or more anonymous sources, I assume that the reporter is the source until proven otherwise. And since I could count all the reporters I trust on my fingers and still have enough digits left to pop the top on a can of beer, I don’t believe many stories with anonymous sources.

I won’t trust any reporter who pushed the Russian collusion and Ukrainian impeachment hoaxes and never set the record straight. I don’t recall any angry posts by furious Lefty writers who were pissed that they got taken in by a hoax. I know I would have been angry.

So anyhoo, there’s gonna be a lot of shit flying around the next couple months. Make sure you got your PPE handy.

“We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”

If you didn’t already know, Dan McLaughlin (aka baseballcrank) is one of the less obnoxious NeverTrumpers

There was, for lack of a better term, an “idea” floating around four or five years ago that Donald Trump was such a singularly bad person that anyone associated with him (including his voters, his donors, his running mate, aides, Cabinet appointees, friends, family, employees, partners, and pets) was permanently tainted with the stench of Trump.

I first recall seeing this idea around the beginning or 2016, give or take a couple months. It was floating like an air biscuit after most likely emanating from the bowels of The National Review or the Weakly Standard. The only people who would push such a silly idea back then were members of the GOP establishment/elite as well as their henchmen and supporters.

The people pushing the Trump Taint idea claimed that not only would Trump lose to Hillary, but he would also do so by a huge margin and would cost the GOP the House and Senate too. Worst of all, the GOP would carry the stench of the Trump Taint. Some said the stench would take years to wash away. Others disagreed, saying that the taint would be permanent. Not even an industrial-strength taint remover would help.

No Democrat would make that argument. Not then, anyway. This was back when the Democrats thought it would be hilarious if they could trick the GOP into nominating Trump because he was obviously the one that Hillary would find it easiest to beat. The Democrats planned to use that argument, but not until Trump was officially the nominee.

The Trump Taint idea did not originate with Trump supporters. We have our guy and we like him very much. Besides, if there is indeed a Trump Taint it has already been smeared all over us.

Political consulting is an occupation that is lucrative one year out of four. Presidential elections are the meat and potatoes of the campaign professionals. Anything they make in between presidential election years is just gravy for their taters.

Every political consultant wants to work for the eventual winner. The ultimate accomplishment is to manage a candidate into the White House and then stay on to advise the administration. That is their version of winning the Superbowl.

All the best campaign pros get booked early. But some presidential candidates stay in the race longer than others. And sometimes candidates fire their original consultants and hire new ones. Every race has got to have a winner, and as the losers drop out the people working for them try to catch on with a candidate who is still in the race. The winner of the primaries typically has their choice of campaign managers.

Unless that winner is Donald Trump.

Donald Trump was his own campaign consultant. His campaign assistant was Corey Lewandowski. Reporters were confooseled by Trump’s campaign organization. There were no layers of aides and secretaries. The official number for Trump’s campaign was the number of his personal cellphone. And if he wasn’t busy when you called he would probably answer.

The media started bashing Trump for not having a traditional professional campaign organization. They wrote stories making Lewandowski look incompetent. One reporter even claimed that Corey had assaulted her, but the video showed she lied. (Whatever happened to Michelle Fields, anyway?)

The NT media and their pals in the GOPe were trying to manipulate the rules so as to deny Trump the nomination despite his winning enough delegates. So in June 2016 Trump made an uncharacteristic mistake by caving to pressure and hiring someone with experience at delegate fights. He hired a guy who in 1976 had helped Gerald Ford nail down enough delegates to turn-back a challenge from Ronald Reagan. That guy was Paul Manafort.

Manafort lasted a little over a month as Trump’s campaign manager. He was replaced by Kellyanne Conway. (Manafort is currently a guest at the Gray Bar Hotel FCI in Loretto, PA)

Kellyanne has been under constant attack ever since she agreed to work for Trump. Many of those attacks come from the right The same NeverTrumpers who warned that there would be a price to pay for working for Trump are trying to extract that price. That means their warnings were actually threats.

But regardless of whether it was a threat or a prediction, we didn’t listen. We voted for Trump anyway. And Trump won. Who the hell do we think we are? We need to be put in our place!

The conservative movement really could use the cleansing fire of a humiliating defeat.

Ever warn someone of a possible danger and had them sneer at your warning? What did you want at that instant? You wanted whatever you warned them about to come true right then while you were watching.

You: “Billy, be careful with that BB gun! You could put your eye out! Does your mother know you’re playing with that thing?”

Dan McLaughlin was hoping we would somehow shoot our eyes out playing with
Trump.

Ever wonder how former friends and neighbors could start slaughtering each other in Darfur and the former Yugoslavia?  It all starts with a desire for a cleansing fire and the humiliation of another tribe.  But the big mistake is in thinking you can do hurtful stuff and it won’t come back and hurt you too.

As Newton stated in his 3rd Law of motion, “What goes around comes around.”

Don’t be a chump. Vote for Trump.

OUT: “Lit” IN: “Gaslit”

For over three months the Democrats and other fascists have been revolting.  Actually, they have been revolting for nearly four years, but lately, they have the violence turned up to eleventy.  During these past 3 months, not one Democrats leader has condemned the violence being caused by BLM and Antifa.  Most of them never even acknowledged that there were any riots.

 

Then the Democrats saw a few honest polls that showed that their strategery was backfiring bigly.and they fucked the freak-out.  But after months of playing pattycake with Antifa and BLM, the Democrats are covered in Antifa/BLM pattycakes.  For weeks they tried to pretend that there were no pattycakes.  Then they claimed that the pattycakes were “mostly peaceful.”  And Now?

“THOSE ARE TRUMP’S PATTYCAKES!”

I find this bullshit insulting.  Do they really think we’re that stupid?  Obviously, yes they do. And this is not some clever scam that had everyone fooled – everyone knew they were lying from the beginning.  We all knew that when they changed their story they were exchanging the old lie for a new lie.  And we know they are lying now.

There is only one version of the story that they haven’t told – the true one.

Now they have a new mindfuck.

Author Don Winslow has a suggestion for Republicans who are uncomfortable with President Donald Trump but don’t want to admit that they’re voting for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Just don’t tell anyone.

Winslow’s new video, “An Open Letter To Republicans,” calls out party members who continue to support the president in spite of the scandals, lies and botched response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“How many times does a person have to lie to you before you stop listening to them?” the video asks.

Then, Winslow offers a way out.

“On Nov. 3, you could end the chaos,” the video suggests. “You can tell your friends and family that you voted for Trump even when you voted for Joe Biden. No one will ever know.”

I don’t know who this guy thinks he is writing to, but he doesn’t have a clue about Republicans and Trump supporters. He supposedly is reaching out to GOP voters who don’t like Trump but are afraid to admit it. But in real life the Republicans who don’t like Trump LOVE to admit it. Seriously – you can’t shut them up.

 

Four years ago a lot of Trump supporters told their friends and families who they were voting for, and now they don’t have any friends or families.  That’s why there really is a group you could accurately call “Shy Trump Voters.”

The author seems to believe that everyone knows that Trump is the evilest POTUS ever, so we don’t need to talk about it. I’ve seen it expressed in comments as: “Four years ago you could claim ignorance. But not now. The evilness of Trump is self-evident. Orange man bad! If you deny it you are as evil as he is.”

This article is so bad I suspect it isn’t quite what it seems. I think his target audience is mainly Democrat Biden voters. This letter is the Twitter equivalent of a tent revival meeting.

But if you want to see some serious cult-like shit, read the comments to his Twitter posts.

Nutty Meg Warns Democrats That They Are Helping Trump

Good old Nutty Meg McMyfatherwasanasshole took a break from Sumo wrestling with Joyless Behar to give political advice to people who won’t listen anyway.

First let me deal with Kneel-Before-Zaid:

With the caveat that everyone really needs to stop equating protesting to rioting on all sides

I am not aware of anyone on the Right who is equating protesting with rioting. There are a ton of people on the Left, however, who are equating rioting with protesting. This includes virtually all of the news media except Tucker Carlson and a few others at Fox News.

Here is a guide to telling the difference between a protest and a riot:

If your protest involves violence, arson, looting, or depriving others of their rights, it isn’t a protest, it’s a riot. It is still a riot if the vast majority of the group do not actively participate in those things but don’t try to stop those who do.

Nutty Meg wonders why the Democrats are not doing anything to stop the riots, the answer is they can’t. They spent decades building up the radical Left. They spent the last four years fanning the flames of anger and bringing the Leftists’ blood lust to a boil. They WANTED this moment.

Once you let the dogs of war slip off their leash, it’s not easy to call them back. This is especially true if you avoided any direct connection to the rioters in order to maintain plausible deniability and prevent RICO indictments.

The Democrats made this bed, so now let them lie in it. (They’re gonna lie anyway.)

When Trump Wins He Owes A Big “Thank-You” To BLM and Antifa

BLM and Antifa have done more to help re-elect Donald Trump than anybody, and that includes Trump supporters.

Trump supporters haven’t wavered, but there are not nearly enough of us to win the election. Trump needs some of those low-info, ungrateful and unreliable “swing” voters who decide our elections. They swung to Trump more often than not four years ago, but what will they do this time? I honestly don’t know and you can’t trust any polls.

You gotta figure that some of them were gullible enough to believe that Trump colluded with Russia and wanted Ukraine to frame Joe Biden. But Trump was cleared by Mueller and acquitted by the Senate, the economy was booming and the Democrats were imploding. It was looking pretty good until the ‘Rona came ashore.

You know the deets. I’m not gonna recite the history. But from the beginning, Trump has been attacked by Democrats and their media lapdogs. They attacked him for doing too much, then turned around and attacked him for not doing enough. They claim that Trump is responsible for 180 million deaths, and the media say nothing or agree.

From Day 1 of his presidency, the strongest argument for the reelection of Donald Trump was the economy. The experts screamed bloody murder about everything Trump did about the economy, screeching warnings that Trump was taking us into a depression so terrible that a nuclear war would be preferable.

Over and over again, the experts were proven wrong, Trump was proven right, and the economy kept picking up speed. Black unemployment hit a historic low. Barack Obama started trying to take credit for Trump’s economy. Then the ‘Rona arrived and we tanked our own economy.

The same Democrats that supported the Shutdown and are the only reason for the continued Lockdown blame Trump for the tanked economy, as if the tanked economy is unrelated to the Lockdown. I was starting to worry about November.

Then George Floyd died in police custody with a potentially fatal amount of Fentanyl in his system. And here came BLM and Antifa to save Trump’s reelection.

Destroying the richest and most powerful nation in history requires major effort. How many riots have you attended in your lifetime? BLM and Antifa have been rioting in some places every single night for nearly three months. They protest all day and riot all night. And if they get arrested they are back within hours. I wish I was young again. Nowadays I get tired just from taking a nap.

Ever since he was elected Trump has suffered in polls that pit him against an imaginary ideal. Trump doesn’t do so well against that standard, partly because he is an unconventional president. But if you compare Trump to another real person then Trump does much better.

BLM and Antifa made themselves the face of the Democrat party while Biden was hidin’. Compared to them, Trump looks really good.

UPDATE:

I forgot to add this line:

So when Trump gives his victory speech on the night of November 3, 2020, he should give a  shout-out to the people who did so much to help him win.

Not that they would hear it – we all know they’ll be rioting that night.

The Republicans Are Here To Kick Ass And Chew Bubblegum

And they’re all out of bubblegum.

You can tell that Richard Grenell gave a great speech without listening to it just from the reactions of the Democrats. They are hyperventilating and hyperbolic, and they aren’t talking about what he actually said. Here is a little bit of what he said:

“Obama-Biden secretly launched a surveillance operation on Trump campaign, silenced the many brave intelligence officials who spoke up against it. They presented bogus information as facts. They lied to judges. Then they classified anything that undermined their case.”

Richard Grenell told the truth. He said that Obama has no clothes, and Biden is butt-naked too. The Left will not repeat what he said. But that doesn’t mean they will keep quiet. One thing that the Democrats are very good at is “sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

On the other hand, Democrats are always in a rage these days. It’s like millions of people were stuck in a manic phase for years. Then in November 2016, they entered a depressive phase that lasted about 2 months. By inauguration day they were back to manic again.

Democrats remind me of berserkers.

In battle, the berserkers were subject to fits of frenzy. They would howl like wild beasts, foamed at the mouth, and gnawed the iron rim of their shields. According to belief, during these fits they were immune to steel and fire, and made great havoc in the ranks of the enemy. When the fever abated they were weak and tame.

Madison Cawthorn is a 25-year-old man who is running for an open seat in NC-11, a congressional district that leans Republican. When he was 18 he was injured in an accident that left him partially paralyzed and he now uses a wheelchair. According to Democrats he is a Nazi and a rapist.

Cawthorn gave a speech that lasted about four minutes. Then he stood up from his wheelchair and recited the Pledge of Allegiance. This upset Yabiche Abdul-Jabbar, a short, fat blob who is 3 warts short of a toad.

Yabitche was so upset she nearly dropped her jelly donut.

Madison Cawthorn made it a point to stand, suggesting that all Americans to should stand during the pledge of allegiance & national anthem.

It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl — including black athletes who are currently sitting out games — protesting police brutality.

I’m glad to see that his message didn’t go right over her head, especially since that is a low bar. Yes, it was a rebuke. Millions of Americans feel the same way. Kneeling for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem is an intentional show of disrespect for the flag. And since the flag represents the Untied States, showing disrespect for the flag is showing disrespect to America. Commie Kaepernickel even admitted it.

No one is claiming that the kneelers do not have the right to express their contempt and disdain for America. But we have the same rights as they do, which means we have a right to express contempt and disdain for the kneelers.

Democrats have been encouraging political violence. There are some of them who advocate for the violent overthrow of our government. Others just want a civil war. They think violence will help them seize power. Democrats should hope and pray that the civil war that they have been asking for never arrives because if it does it will not end well for them.
