VIOLENT PROTEST AND THE INTELLIGENTSIA

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

 

This interview with a professor of Russian literature points out some of the similarities between what is happening in America today and conditions in Czarist Russia right before the Russian Revolution.   Nancy
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
VIOLENT PROTEST AND THE INTELLIGENTSIA
An Interview with Gary Saul Morson, A professor of Russian Literature at Northwestern University,    by Barton Swaim  Mr. Swaim is an editorial page writer for the Journal.
June  7, 2020
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: In late czarist Russia, some political parties and other groups—the Social Democrats, the anarchists, the Marxists—explicitly endorsed terrorism. “The liberal party—the Constitutional Democrats, they called themselves—did not condone terrorism,” Mr. Morson says. “But they refused to condemn it. And indeed they called for the release from prison of all terrorists, who were pledged to continue terrorism right away. . . . A famous line from one of the liberal leaders put it this way: ‘Condemn terrorism? That would be the moral death of the party.’ ”

The similarities between this week’s riots and the Los Angeles riots of 1992 are obvious. Both were occasioned by appalling video images, and both divided the nation along partisan and ideological lines. The differences between the two events, however, are more revealing. The violence in 1992 came after a court verdict; the beating and arrest of Rodney King had happened more than a year before. This year’s riots came within days of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis officers. The riots of 1992 were mostly confined to poor and working-class areas of Los Angeles. This week saw mayhem all over America, and in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere the rioters targeted wealthy streets and neighborhoods.

But perhaps the most striking difference is the rationalization, and sometimes full-throated defense, of violence from left-wing elites: the glorification of havoc, the vilification of cops and their middle-class admirers, highfalutin defenses of vandalism. The sense of revolution and class warfare was everywhere this week: the cognoscenti and underclass arrayed against the petty bourgeois shop owners; the elite and those they claim to represent against everybody else.

Gary Saul Morson says he has no special insight regarding police actions and the death of George Floyd. But he does have a provocative thesis about America’s current political moment: “To me it’s astonishingly like late 19th-, early 20th-century Russia, when basically the entire educated class felt you simply had to be against the regime or some sort of revolutionary.”

Mr. Morson, 72, is a professor of Russian literature at Northwestern University and an accomplished interpreter of Fyodor Dostoevsky, Anton Chekhov and Leo Tolstoy. Obviously we haven’t arrived at anything like what Lenin called a “revolutionary situation,” Mr. Morson says, but we have arrived at a situation in which well-intentioned liberal people often can’t bring themselves to say that lawless violence is wrong.

VIDEO – ARREST OF LOCKDOWN PROTESTERS IN RALEIGH, NC APRIL 28, 2020

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

 

This video was filmed at a peaceful demonstration to open up our state from the lockdown in Raleigh, NC, on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 .       Nancy

 

 

This was a peaceful protest on public property (the sidewalk) owned by the people who were arrested by the governor’s goons.
This shocking video was still viewable as 11pm on Tuesday, 4/28…..

 

Thanks to Gadi Adelman, a counter terrorism expert, who was attending the protest in Raleigh yesterday, for providing us with this detailed accounting of what really happened.  Nancy

Nancy good morning.
Dee and I were at the rally both yesterday and last week. To answer your question the actual charges on all four were “resisting a public officer and violation of an executive order”.
Personally I’d like to know how stepping on the sidewalk is a violation of the executive order because that is what they were arrested for.
Last week, there were signs up to stay off the sidewalk, those signs were not there yesterday. Also one of the four that was arrested was charged with “damaging property” he had been pulling on the Northeast gate of the executive mansion which Dee and I both saw while we were there but from what I saw I doubt that it was broken due to that.
When I spotted him doing that I pointed it out to Dee and said,  “we don’t need to be doing stuff like that”. As I was about to walk over and tell him to stop someone else got there before me and pulled him away. it was well over an hour later that he was arrested for that while standing on the sidewalk.
Nowhere in the governor’s executive order does it say that you cannot walk on the sidewalk, I’m sure these charges will all be tossed out and they were just making an example of them.
The whole reason that this started was because there were no flags flying in front of the executive Mansion. Dee and I also noticed there were no flags last week.
I walked up to the sidewalk and spoke to one of the police officers, I asked him nicely, calmly, and quietly can you tell me why the flags are not up on the flagpole? He refused to answer me, no matter what I asked him he just stood there, nothing was ever said by any of these police officers other than “do not step on the sidewalk” . At one point I finally said to him “I guess you’re not allowed to answer”  and he smirked at me.
Aside from the one idiot who pulled on the gates we left downtown cleaner than when we arrived, it was peaceful and there were no threats or anything other than everyone that I saw thanking the police for being there and for their service.

Also, the reason the flags were not being flown (so I found out later) is because the Gov. said they were damaged during protests in the past. What he didn’t bother to say was that ALL those protests were by either, Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Illegals, NEVER any conservative group. ALL the other State buildings had their flags up.

Charlie Kirk warns against conservatives rooting for Sanders to be the Democrat nominee

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk joins ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ to discuss the 2020 race and his new book ‘The MAGA Doctrine: The Only Ideas That Will Win the Future.’

 
CHARLIE KIRK’S NEW BOOK – ‘THE MAGA DOCTRINE:  THE ONLY IDEAS THAT WILL WIN THE FUTURE’

The MAGA Doctrine: The Only Ideas That Will Win the Future Hardcover – March 3, 2020

by Charlie Kirk  (Author)    BOOK REVIEW

The movement that brought Donald Trump to the White House has better ideas than the old right or the new left. It’s time that the rest of America started listening.

The Tea Party began as a protest for patriots who feared Big Government. President Trump has become a hero for patriots who are against Big Everything.

Fed up with Silicon Valley, the media, liberal higher education, the military-industrial complex, Twitter mobs, swamp monsters, Big Pharma, out-of-control prosecutors, and gun-grabbing fascists, ordinary Americans miss the days when America cared about rule of the people, by the people, and for the people. Remember when you didn’t feel bombarded on all sides by coastal billionaires and their government stooges? The MAGA Doctrine urges an overdue restoration of self-rule by a populace long taken for granted by its rulers.

Turning Point USA founder and social media superstar Charlie Kirk explains once and for all why a New York real estate magnate found an audience among young conservatives all over the country. Trump and his allies are working to protect all the small things that both parties dismissed: local businesses, families, churches, and the rights of the individual. Kirk explains why it took a reality TV superstar to see past the sclerotic and power-hungry institutions, from the United Nations and Google to Harvard and Viacom, working to crush real America. The Trump Doctrine is all about giving you a say in the future of America and a hand in making it happen.

As the mainstream media keep churning out lies about the “real reasons” behind the new conservative agenda, Charlie Kirk’s The MAGA Doctrine is a powerful reminder of the true narrative of freedom and greatness that swept Donald Trump to the presidency.

REVOLUTION: TRUMP, WASHINGTON AND ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ – NEW BOOK BY KT MCFARLAND

 had to prove I was innocent in the Mueller probe: KT McFarland

Former Trump deputy national security adviser KT McFarland discusses her new book which details her treatment by FBI agents taking part in the Mueller probe.

Revolution: Trump, Washington and “We the People” Hardcover – February 25, 2020    by KT McFarland

When Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor left Washington, she disappeared from sight. Now former government official and political commentator KT McFarland returns with tenacity, resolve, and the truth about the Trump Administration and those seeking to destroy it.

For decades, KT McFarland has been one of the country’s most prominent conservative foreign policy experts. She was part of the Trump Revolution from the beginning. As Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor, she had a seat at the table for everything: Trump’s unconventional campaign and upset victory; his throw-out-the-rule-book Trump Tower Transition; the chaotic first months in the West Wing; the unusual events surrounding General Flynn’s firing; and the sprawling Mueller investigation.

THE AGONY OF THE DEMOCRATS

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

 

Far Left Liberalism has itself to blame for  being the cause of the appeal of Bernie Sanders.  The Democrat Party now has to contend with the possibility of Bernie being their nominee.  Guess they really didn’t mean for the voters to take their extreme far left policies seriously !   Nancy  

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Agony of the Democrats

Bernie Sanders is riding the intellectual currents that the party and its elites have nurtured.

By the Editorial Board   February 15, 2020

Bernie Sanders’s victory in New Hampshire on top of his tie in Iowa makes him a favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination. Hard to believe, but in a winnable race against President Trump the opposition may nominate a socialist who wants the government to control energy production and health care, who wants nationwide rent control, and who calls America a “racist society from top to bottom.” No wonder Democrats like James Carville are in agony.

The Vermont revolutionary’s victory portends a long primary battle, unless Democratic voters elevate a single mainstream candidate who can challenge him. Mr. Sanders will get his 25% to 30% primary after primary, racking up delegates on his way to the convention. If other candidates keep dividing the other votes, he will be hard to stop, as Mr. Trump was for Republicans in 2016. Even if a single alternative emerges, Mr. Sanders won’t go down without a ferocious intra-party fight.

***

How did this happen? How did Mr. Sanders move from the socialist fringe to the brink of controlling the Democratic Party? The Senator’s dogged persistence across decades and especially the last four years is part of the explanation.

Yet Mr. Sanders wouldn’t be this close to the White House if not for the complicity of Democrats and the liberals who dominate the academy and media. Rather than fighting the ideas that animate him and his millennial voters, they have indulged and promoted them. They created the political environment in which he could prosper. Consider the intellectual currents he is riding:

BERNIE SANDERS EXPOSED FOR BACKING THE IRANIAN HOSTAGE TAKERS IN 1979

Friday, January 24th, 2020

 

This is why the Democrats are trying to ruin Sander’s chances for  being their nominee.  All of this information on Sander’s past support for the Iranian hostage takers  will be brought out in the election by the Trump campaign and the Democrats will go down in flames.  Go Bernie !!!!    Nancy  

When Iran Took Americans Hostage, Bernie Backed Iran’s Defenders

By Ronald Radosh   January 16, 2020
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  If Sanders were to become the Democratic presidential nominee, all this will come pouring out in Trump ads on television and social media. Voters  will see TV clips of the American hostages, blindfolded and abused, alongside Sanders as the Trotskyist elector supporting the Iranian kidnappers. Rest assured, Trump will make absolutely sure that it is Sanders’ own past that will bury him and perhaps the Democratic Party.

Bernie Sanders, a top competitor in the Democratic primaries, has attacked Joe Biden for bringing “just a lot of baggage” into the race. But if past views are a major consideration, consider the baggage that Sanders drags into the campaign.

Go back over 40 years, to the start of Iran’s long conflict with the United States. On April 1, 1979, the theocratic Islamic Republic of Iran was proclaimed. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who had returned to Iran from exile to assume command of the revolt, became Supreme Leader in December of that year. His rise was accelerated by the seizure on Nov. 4 of 52 American diplomats and citizens, and citizens of other countries, at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. The hostage crisis became the means by which the Ayatollah crushed political opponents in Iran. Dealing with the hostage taking became the overwhelming political crisis for President Jimmy Carter. It lasted 444 days.

Virtually all Americans—Democrats, Republicans and independents—united in support of the hostages and the international call for their freedom. One prominent political figure on the 2020 stage, then almost completely unknown, stood apart by joining a Marxist-Leninist party that not only pledged support for the Iranian theocracy, but also justified the hostage taking by insisting the hostages were all likely CIA agents. Who was that person? It was Bernie Sanders.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY MOVEMENT ISN’T GOING AWAY

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

 

This is an interesting article about a man in Virginia who was not particularly political but he has become involved in supporting the 2nd amendment sanctuary movement.  The threat from the Democrats in Virginia has definitely got his attention !!!  Nancy

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Isn’t Going Away

The media smears them as ‘white supremacists,’ but thousands showed up in Richmond, Va., Monday

By Salena Zito    Ms. Zito is a reporter for the Washington Examiner, a columnist for the New York Post and a co-author of “The Great Revolt:  Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics.”

Middletown, Va.

Troy Carter, 49, says that, other than voting, he’d never been involved in politics. That changed late last year, when he heard that a county board of supervisors in Virginia voted to become a gun sanctuary. On Monday he was one of an estimated 22,000 people who gathered peacefully at the Capitol Square in Richmond, Va., to support gun rights. Many of those attending were visibly armed.

Ninety-one of Virginia’s 96 counties have passed sanctuary measures to resist proposed state gun regulations. Last year Democrats took control of both chambers of Virginia’s General Assembly for the first time in nearly three decades. They, along with Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, have stood firm on their campaign pledges to enact stricter gun control, partly in reaction to a shooting last May in Virginia Beach.

For Virginians like Mr. Carter, the effort has brought about a political awakening. He learned to shoot when he was six years old. Guns are a normal part of his life, like fishing or going to church every Sunday, and something he considers vital to protecting and providing for his family. Mr. Carter choked up as he described a tradition of safety, protection and providing taught to him by his grandfather—and his grandfather before him. When he discovered the sanctuary movement, he decided to go to a meeting two counties away to learn more.

Becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary means a locality won’t use law enforcement resources to prosecute the proposed antigun laws. Whether such resolutions have any teeth depends on local officials’ resolve, but at the very least these measures are a reflection of regional sentiment on gun control.

This grass-roots movement is largely composed of people like Mr. Carter, who aren’t otherwise political but strongly believe in the importance of the Second Amendment. At his first meeting, he encountered massive support, “I just couldn’t believe the amount of people that showed up.”

Mr. Carter soon found himself attending another gathering in another county, and then another. When it finally came time for his county supervisors to take a vote, he spoke at the meeting. They passed a sanctuary measure.
