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 »

A Fascist Attack in Portland

Featured image Andy Ngo is a journalist who writes for National Review, Spectator USA and Quillette. Among other things, he has documented violence perpetrated by the fascist group Antifa. Yesterday Ngo was covering an Antifa demonstration in Portland when he was set upon and beaten up by around 20 masked thugs. This is what the Antifa group looked like, marching and chanting in typical Brownshirt fashion: The left-wing demonstrators easily number in »

Candace Owens Fights the New KKK

Featured image It is a truism of contemporary public life that liberals are bullies. And the bullying is worst on college campuses, which are now, more than ever, islands of repression in a sea of freedom. But some brave souls, like Candace Owens, are willing to run the leftist gauntlet to bring a dose of common sense to college students. Yesterday Candace was at the University of Pennsylvania, which I believe was »

Dystopia now

Featured image Andy Ngo refers to the cable series Portlandia in the conclusion of his chilling Spectator USA column “What’s the matter with Portland?” He writes: “The city has gained a comic reputation as a bastion of wokeness due to the comedy sketch show Portlandia. That’s way off the mark. Real life Portland is much, much worse, and it’s no joke.” His column is published at the Spectator USA together with the »

On Antifa, the Babylon Bee Gets the Last Word

Featured image I wrote here about the fascist Antifa group that descended on Tucker Carlson’s home, chanting “We know where you sleep,” and “No borders, no wall, no USA at all!” News reports indicate that Tucker was not at home, and the fascists terrified his wife, who called the police. To my knowledge, no leading Democrat has tried to distance his or her party from this sort of mob action. I think »

Leftist Mob Besieges Tucker Carlson

Featured image In the wake of the midterms, the left hasn’t missed a beat. Last night, an Antifa fascist mob besieged Tucker Carlson’s home, chanting threats against Carlson and his family (“We know where you sleep”). This kind of sickening behavior has become typical of American liberals: The question that came to my mind watching this video was, does Tucker own a shotgun? »

The left: An unhinged mob

Featured image Steve Scalise, we might say, has the moral authority to observe: “When Eric Holder, other Dems call for violence, that’s a direct threat to our democracy.” On a related note, Andy Ngo notes that “A leftist mob ‘polices’ Portland.” You probably missed it in the news presented by the mainstream media. You probably missed it because it wasn’t there. The Republican National Committee has just released the timely video it »

What do you mean “we,” lefty

Featured image Leaders of the National Lawyers Guild in San Francisco have written an opinion piece for the San Francisco Chronicle titled “We are all Antifa.” The truth of the statement depends on the meaning of “we.” If the authors mean the National Lawyers Guild, their statement is accurate. This outfit is, and always has been, a far left organization. As Jesse Rigsby wrote in FrontPage Magazine back in 2003: The National »

U.S. Civil Rights Commission wants no enemies on the left

Featured image Last week, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights unanimously passed a resolution condemning the Nazi, KKK, and white-nationalist participants in the Charlottesville rally. Good. Then, the Commissioners voted down an amendment by Gail Heriot that would have added: Though we support peaceful protest and note that most of the counter-demonstrators were peaceful, we condemn violence by anyone, including violence by so-called antifa demonstrators. That amendment failed by a vote of »

New York Times Applauds Far-Left Violence

Featured image New York Times reporters Thomas Fuller, Alan Feuer and Serge Kovaleski are responsible for this admiring profile of the far-left Brownshirts called antifa: “‘Antifa’ members are ready to literally fight right-wingers.” Members of antifa have shown no qualms about using their fists, sticks or canisters of pepper spray to meet an array of right-wing antagonists whom they call a fascist threat to U.S. democracy. Is antifa violent? Well, that depends »
