It seems some on the illiberal left want to ban AOC’s twitter response to BLM and Antifa riots because as they say, what goes around comes around and they would rather NOT show their hypocrisy:
“The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable. Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point.” Dec 2, 2020
Orwell is rolling over in his grave with Beethoven and Chuck Berry. The senile plagiarist President “elect?” of half these un-United States and Willie’s Ho are very upset how different Trump’s protesters were treated vs. Black Lives Matter. BLM and Antifa were mostly peaceful and they were treated harshly he belches for the cameras? Really? For most of us, BLM has not only been given a pass, but they have been rewarded with millions of dollars of funding to continue their acts of domestic terrorism. I don’t see an army of Hollywood fools sending boat loads of bail money to help the Trump “protesters” the way they did for the BLM and Antifa thugs. True to Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the radical left learned how to extort big bucks from Big Corporate America, and in effect, this militia for the Democrat Party has made millions perhaps billions (who knows?) and have been allowed to run rough shod over Democrat controlled cities. And Big Corp America has been OK with it. Pesky small businesses and especially those that don’t particularly like China are being shut down and their masters in China, with Trump gone, will now be able to continue to make Big Tech, Big Media, Big Pharma, and Big Corp Globalist Socialist America wealthy. Who cares if the middle class suffers? Who cares if China becomes the world’s lone super power? They’ve got theirs! Unless they capitulate, let the serfs “eat cake”!
On the other hand, Trump has held dozens of rallies. All peaceful until now. And though many talking heads talk about the “darkest” day in America, I’m afraid my simple comment earlier about the laws of physics has been shown to be true: that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Literally dozens of cities were under siege, riots, looting, burning, murders for months. One day for the Trump folks. Sorry, I suspect this is only the start. Not equal and opposite by a long shot.
The tipping point for the Trump loyalists was not the rally itself or even the fact that Trump didn’t slink away the way all other politicians would have. I suspect the final straw was the Georgia steal. I’m afraid the illiberal left got greedy. Ironic that it has been reported that the reason the Supremes didn’t take up the Texas case questioning the legitimacy of the changes made to the electoral process (bypassing State Legislatures as called out in the Constitution Article II, sec 1, clause 2 and 3 in the key battleground states and others), which totally screwed up the voting process allowing vote harvesting, voting days or weeks before or after, leading to all sorts of dodgy vote counting, changing the rules for verifying signatures, allowing thousands of votes from people who no longer lived in that state. No telling how many voted in 2 or more states. Yes, Roberts was heard screaming we’re not taking this case, I don’t give a bleep about Bush v Gore – they didn’t have riots then! Well, you got riots on BOTH sides now you moral cowards and crooks. And this is not over by a long shot. As the corrupt Media Moguls and Tech Tyrants double down on turning Trump into an evil villain and making absurd claims that BLM and Antifa were treated harsher than the Trump folks – the third of the country not asleep or brainwashed – will not simply go away. Thank God and our founders for the 2nd Amendment, because without the opposition locked and loaded, this country would be done. The Republic is under siege, and it may well never recover, but it wasn’t the folks who broke into the Capitol, that are in the process of turning the US into a Banana Republic. No, I do not condone violence, but I’m not as arrogant or ignorant as the illiberal locusts of the left and their Ruling Class. You can only heat things up for so long – push people so far before it boils over. Yes, another law of physics. And by the way, if you are a lefty and happy your side has won the day – Are you uncomfortable yet?
