Burning Bibles In Portland

Featured image Totalitarians hate religion because in their view, there can be nothing higher than the state. American totalitarians particularly hate Christians and Jews. Thus, we see Antifa burning Bibles in Portland: Public gatherings to burn Bibles: OK Public gatherings to read Bibles: BANNED — Razor (@hale_razor) August 1, 2020 The Democrats are committed to the view that Portland’s protests are peaceful and, as far as we can judge from their »

Who Is Behind the Anti-Police Campaign?

Featured image America’s police forces are under attack, in part by “peaceful protesters” in various cities. The Democrats and their media arm have done their best to domesticate the anti-law enforcement movement, and to make it seem almost normal. This despite the fact that those who call for defunding or disbanding police forces are a tiny minority. Here in Minnesota, my organization’s polling finds that 85% of Minnesotans support their local police. »

Essential Fleccas reports

Featured image Essential Fleccas caught up with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler for a quick interview on the Portland riots. Nadler responded it’s all a myth. By the evidence of the video, however, news of Nadler’s stomach reduction surgery is a myth and he needs to shelter in place to protect himself from the epidemic. The Portland riots — who doesn’t know they’re the real thing? If Nadler’s news intake is »

Long Prison Terms Needed

Featured image It is hard to see how the city of Portland can ever recover from the violence that has been unleashed by Antifa, with the connivance of local officials. One is tempted to say that Portland’s voters have brought it on themselves and are getting what they deserve–good and hard, as Mencken put it. Unfortunately, they aren’t the principal victims of the violence. Federal agents came under vicious attack while trying »

Portland’s Confederates

Featured image Tom Cotton made liberal heads explode when he analogized Portland’s criminal Antifa to Confederates of the 1860s: The federal government cannot allow anarchists and insurrectionists to destroy federal courthouses, federal buildings, or other federal property. These insurrectionists in the streets of Portland are little different from the insurrectionists who seceded from the Union in 1861 in South Carolina and tried to take over Fort Sumter. And just like President Lincoln »

Churches Under Attack

Featured image There has been a rash of arson and vandalism directed against European churches, most notably in France. The London Times reports: Recent incidents have included a fire in Saint-Sulpice church in Paris, human excrement smeared on the wall in Notre-Dame-des-Enfants church in Nîmes, southern France, and vandalism of the organ at Saint-Denis basilica outside Paris, where all but three of France’s kings are buried. *** Figures released by French police »

Portland Fights for the Title

Featured image I suggested a week ago that Minneapolis might have surpassed Portland in the race for the title of America’s Worst-Governed City. That apparently spurred Portland residents to redouble their efforts, and today that city stands unchallenged as America’s worst. Consider that Portland has now experienced 51 consecutive days of violent riots. Minneapolis had, what? Six? Last night violent mobs under the banners of Antifa and Black Lives Matter attacked the »

Is “Wokism” Systemically Racist?

Featured image A flippant response might be, since pretty much everything else is these days, why not? More seriously, there is a good argument that wokism implies a contemptuous, paternalistic attitude toward minorities, especially blacks. And many have noticed that you see a lot more African-Americans in the ranks of the police than in Antifa. This short video by a black police officer makes the point tellingly: Portland Police Officer Jackson Speaks »

Trump: “We were going in and would have taken the CHOP”

Featured image In an interview broadcast last night on Sean Hannity’s program, President Trump said he was about to send in forces to take back the area in Seattle known as CHOP. Hannity asked: I had a source that told me, I was not able to confirm it, that one of the reasons that the Seattle mayor finally acted is that they were given notice that if they didn’t act that you »

Live from Seattle

Featured image The authorities in Seattle have surrendered a part of the city to Antifa thugs and louts. Christopher Rufo reports for City Journal: Seattle’s hard-Left secessionist movement has claimed its first territory: six blocks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. For the past week, Black Lives Matter and Antifa-affiliated activists have engaged in a pitched battle with Seattle police officers and National Guard soldiers in the neighborhood, with the heaviest conflict occurring »

Infiltrating Antifa

Featured image Antifa is a vicious fascist organization that is indistinguishable from the Nazi Brownshirts of the 1930s. Terrorizing innocent people and destroying property are its only tactics. President Trump recently designated Antifa a domestic terrorist organization, which it certainly is, although one with extensive international connections. Also with a lot of money: Antifa is heavily financed by left-wing plutocrats. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been infiltrating Antifa, apparently over a significant »

Hong Kong, Caracas and Portland

Featured image As you no doubt are aware, there have been mass protests in Hong Kong over China’s increasing assertion of sovereignty over the formerly independent city. Some demonstrations reportedly have turned out hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents. A couple of days ago, demonstrators battled police in the central city: What I want to comment on is the Hong Kong government’s use of violent gangs to suppress demonstrations. The London »

The Washington Post keeps shilling for Antifa

Featured image The Washington Post made an editorial decision to label “racist” President Trump’s tweet suggesting that four radical, America-bashing congresswomen leave the country. The tweet isn’t racist, and the explanation for the editorial decision is so weak that it must be a pretext for printing “Trump” and “racist” together repeatedly in headlines and news stories. The Post’s ploy is annoying and amusing, at the same time. But there’s nothing funny about »

Trump on Antifa

Featured image At the recent Social Media Summit at the White House, Harmeet Dhillon, the lawyer who represents Andy Ngo, spoke. (Ngo, as you probably remember, is the journalist who was viciously beaten by Antifa fascists in Portland.) After Dhillon finished, President Trump took the podium and unloaded on Antifa. Quotable quote: “Have you ever noticed Antifa is never there when we have a bikers’ rally?” After my attorney, @pnjaban, spoke at »

Washington Post shills for Antifa

Featured image Here is the opening paragraph of the Washington Post’s account of a rally by a group called Proud Boys protesting the exclusion of some activists from social media: Hundreds of D.C. police officers descended on the area around Washington’s Freedom Plaza on Saturday, preventing antifascists from clashing with right-wing demonstrators during dueling rallies near the White House. Who were these “antifascists”? Police on bicycles and on foot quickly broke up »

More Antifa Outrages in Portland

Featured image I wrote here about an attack by Antifa criminals on journalist Andy Ngo in Portland on Saturday. Ngo was hospitalized and had several thousand dollars worth of camera equipment destroyed. It turns out that at about the same time, in a different area of the Antifa rampage, Brownshirt thugs attacked and seriously injured two other men. Rather than re-tell the story, I will simply embed Michelle Malkin’s tweets, which include »

Living In an Age of Hate [Updated]

Featured image Byron York takes a dispassionate look at today’s political/cultural landscape, which is beginning to resemble the one that preceded the Civil War: The toxicity of the resistance to President Trump has risen in recent days, with the nation’s most respected newspapers publishing rationalizations for denying Trump supporters public accommodation and for doxxing career federal employees, while a journalist found himself under physical attack from the so-called anti-fascist group Antifa, which »
