Bad news for White Supremacists

leave a comment »

You know that little symbol you’ve been using to communicate with eachother as a symbol of White Power?

The symbol that the Democrats, the US Left and the MSM (but I repeat myself), all went apeshit about after Trump became President?

This sign =>

Well, bad news haters. It turns out that’s wrong. We know this now, not just because President Biden used it in his poorly viewed train wreck of a “Town hall” meeting on CNN the other night,…

… but also because people who tried to claim he was flashing the WP sign have been…. fact checked! By none other than Politifact!

This started when Twitter account called “Libs of Tik Tok” – who specialise in having fun with earnest US “Liberals” – tweeted the following: bonus points to them for using the Internet meme, “literally shaking”.

Given that we live in a world where the satirical site, Babylon Bee, has found itself being “fact-checked” as a result of dealing with clueless journalists, the following should not have been a surprise, yet it still was:

Wow! Thanks for that “Fact-checkers”. Without you, clueless morons might have thought that was a real accusation. However, they did do one good thing, which was to provide some background to the nonsense of how the traditional “Okay” sign ended up being a White Power symbol.

First, a word of caution about interpreting that gesture as a white power gesture. According to the Anti-Defamation League, in 2017, members of the website 4chan falsely claimed that it represented the letters “WP” for “white power.”

“The hoaxers hoped that the media and liberals would overreact by condemning a common image as white supremacist,” the Anti-Defamation League says in this article explaining the gesture.

Hoped? That’s exactly what the dumbfucks of the US MSM and “liberals” did do – to the utter delight of the 4chan gang, who do such things on a regular basis to demonstrate how screwed up the MSM-Liberal alliance is. Why it’s as if they and the ADL don’t even know they’re being played.

While overwhelmingly people use the gesture to signify assent or approval, “as well as other usages unrelated to white supremacy,” the league says, it has also been used as a sincere expression of white supremacy.

In this case, however, the context makes clear that Biden is using the gesture to illustrate the number zero, as in how many cents he said some corporations pay in taxes.

Oh! So now “context matters.” Fantastic. It just so happens that context suddenly “matters” when a Democrat does it. Context didn’t matter for the last few years when Republican politicians, activists and even ordinary, random dudes on TV flashed it and got attacked, smeared, and in some cases canceled by online outrage mobs.

You only have to imagine the response had Trump done this. The irony is that Biden was quite happy in his early 70’s Senate career to pal around with Democrat Senators who were outright segregationists and White Supremacists.

The random online FaceTwit mobs are bad enough, but once again we see that the MSM “fact checkers” could not be more transparent in their Lefty and partisan bias.

“Unforeseen” Consequences

The foremost concern of environmentalists is, of course, the health and well being of the environment.

It’s in their name and all.

So it’s always funny and sad when environmentalists do stuff that blows up in their faces. There are countless examples but in terms of large scale screwups Germany’s decision to shut down its nuclear power stations while also trying to switch the system to wind power is probably the winner. Some €500 million over less than twenty years and all they got was an unreliable network, power prices that have more than tripled, a lot of coal still being burned, plus constantly falling short of their GHG reduction targets. On that last it should be noted that the 2020 Chinese Xi Snot lockdowns and restrictions were a huge help, but that’s not going to be true of 2021 and beyond.

That chart is from 2017 but it’s 2020 forecast of 45 cents per kilowatt hour is not far off where it is right now.

But the latest news from another group of wind farm fanatics, California, is what is really delicious.

As more renewable power has crowded the state’s power grid with traditional power sources switched off, the grid has become more unstable and also unable to meet electrical demand even when its up and running. This has resulted in increasingly frequent summertime calls for people to lay off using power in the crucial 4-9pm slot.

Faced with this, companies and even individuals have begun to turn to, of all things, diesel generators. In fact the state itself has 2,773 stationary and mobile generators in its inventory. Now you would think that the uncompromising Eco-Stasi authorities would crack down on that quick smart. But of course they know if they forced people into that corner even the Liberal Luvvies would revolt. So instead, they’re allowing this to expand and continue. In fact, they’re even helping all this fossil fuel burning along, California wants air pollution rules suspended:

The state’s main grid operator wants the U.S. Department of Energy to suspend air-pollution rules for some natural gas-burning power plants in case their output is needed “to meet demand in the face of extremely challenging conditions including extreme heat waves, multiple fires, high winds, and various grid issues,” according to a filing. The last time California received a waiver of such length and breadth was 21 years ago during the Western Energy Crisis.

Genius. And here you were thinking that the following was just a joke.

Biden’s Advance Team sends a message

Either that or they’re as incompetent as the rest of his administration was in planning the great Afghanistan bugout.

In politics an Advance Team is sent ahead of a politician to the areas where photo ops and such are going to be held after speeches and other political events. Sometimes the photo op is the political event.

In any case the idea of an Advance Team is to scope out the best areas for the photographs and avoid things that will make your candidate look bad. One of the classic faux pas happened in 1988 when the campaign staff of Democrat Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis thought he’d look tough riding around in a tank. Instead he looked like Mickey Mouse and the drumbeat of laughter helped send him on his way to a loss against the goofy George H W Bush.

Here in NZ it’s hard to forget the equally boneheaded effort by the political naif, Don Brash, trying to squeeze his clumsy, gawky frame into a dirt track race car. I shared in the hideous chuckle of laughter that went around the nation.

And so we come to this photograph of Biden during a recent visit to Idaho, a state he lost by 30 points and therefore a place where a Democrat needs to be on his toes to not get cornered by Republicans.

My favourite among the MAGA kids is the boy on the right of the picture with a tee-shirt showing Donald Trump as The Terminator (“I’ll be back”).

The Age of Men is over. The Time of The Orc has come.

This will not be news for people who play Dungeons and Dragons, the now almost fifty year old, role-playing game beloved by generations of nerds.

Dungeons and Dragons goes woke.

Well shit! What hasn’t been going woke recently? From the article a bit of background for non D&D’rs.

The science-fiction fantasy game was created in 1974 by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. Players pretend to be fantasy characters who are guided through adventures and scenarios by a dungeon master. 

By the early 1980’s, thanks to some insane and talented coders, I was playing a crude version of it with mates on our university’s computer system: the Digital Equipment Manufacturer (DEC) VAX 11/780, a 32-bit “minicomputer” that was far more attractive to learn on than the more common but huge IBM mainframes with their clunking batch-processing oriented architecture. Naturally we had to play the game in the wee small hours of the morning because 128Mb of RAM only goes so far even with a superb time-sharing OS. Typically for the times, nobody thought of commercialising it. After all, what computers could run such a thing from the comfort of your home?

🤣🤣🤣🤣

Anyhoo, I stopped playing it, whether on computers or in the traditional board version, as soon as I graduated. I thought it had been left behind with the world of nerds. It’s therefore been with baffled amusement that I’ve seen the Millennial and Gen Z generations glom on to it in recent years, with huge online viewing of D&D games on things like the live-streaming site, Twitch. (9 million viewers for one game in 2017: eat that TVNZ).

Because we lived in a vastly less inter-connected world, we weren’t aware for some years that D&D had played a significant role in the great 1980’s Satanic Panic bullshit, all because of one dickhead private “dick” hired by a family to find their missing 15-year old boy genius in 1979 – who just happened to be totally into D&D. There were others:

The panic continued into 1982 when Virginian high school student Irving Lee Pulling II killed himself. Patricia A. Pulling, his mother, claimed the game was responsible and founded ‘Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons.’ In 1984, Missouri teenager, Mary C. Towey, was strangled to death by Ronald G. Adcox and Darren Lee Molitor. What connected both cases? They all played D&D.

As you can imagine, by the time I and other nerds heard about this panic some years later it was merely good for uproarious laughter, scorn and ridicule of the moralising idiots pushing all the panic. It’s probably not surprising that sales went from from thousands per year to millions.

Which brings us to the moralising dickheads of today:

‘Throughout the 50-year history of D&D, some of the peoples in the game — orcs and drow being two of the prime examples — have been characterized as monstrous and evil, using descriptions that are painfully reminiscent of how real-world ethnic groups have been and continue to be denigrated,’ the statement reads. ‘That’s just not right, and it’s not something we believe in.

Oh FFS! What a complete and total load of crap. But it also ties in so well with other such developments, such as the drive to pervert the works of that dreaded Catholic Conservative, J.R.R. Tolkien (from which D&D took much inspiration), with a new Lord Of The Rings spinoff that’s going to employ all that hot and saucy Game of Thrones stuff, no doubt with really cool Elvish sex action among other things.

Ok. Let me think about that last a bit more.

Anyway, the problem with trying to pull this with D&D is that the gamers themselves will subvert it just as thoroughly as they did the “Satanic” bullshit.

‘The beauty of D&D is that players can ignore the official storylines, narratives, maps and characters if they find them ridiculous,’ radio host and D&D junkie Larry O’Connor told The Spectator. ‘So this entire exercise is performative to get attention but the actual players will just look the other way and laugh.’

They already are.

Even that isn’t new. Way back in 2003 McSweeney’s Quarterly took a witheringly precise slice at a supposedly “unused audio of a discussion between Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky”:

CHOMSKY: The film opens with Galadriel speaking. “The world has changed,” she tells us, “I can feel it in the water.” She’s actually stealing a line from the non-human Treebeard. He says this to Merry and Pippin in The Two Towers, the novel. Already we can see who is going to be privileged by this narrative and who is not.

ZINN: Of course. “The world has changed.” I would argue that the main thing one learns when one watches this film is that the world hasn’t changed. Not at all.

CHOMSKY: We should examine carefully what’s being established here in the prologue. For one, the point is clearly made that the “master ring,” the so-called “one ring to rule them all,” is actually a rather elaborate justification for preemptive war on Mordor.

ZINN: I think that’s correct. Tolkien makes no attempt to hide the fact that rings are wielded by every other ethnic enclave in Middle Earth. The Dwarves have seven rings, the Elves have three. The race of Man has nine rings, for God’s sake. There are at least 19 rings floating around out there in Middle Earth, and yet Sauron’s ring is supposedly so terrible that no one can be allowed to wield it. Why?

CHOMSKY: Notice too that the “war” being waged here is, evidently, in the land of Mordor itself — at the very base of Mount Doom. These terrible armies of Sauron, these dreadful demonized Orcs, have not proved very successful at conquering the neighboring realms — if that is even what Sauron was seeking to do. It seems fairly far-fetched.

97 Nym’s on the Wall

It will soon be the time for the Christmas spirit to prevail.

But not quite yet.

Not long after I started posting here I had some fun with a dickhead commentator debating with a “sock puppet” – himself under another name.

The Internet’s a Funny old Place.

He never returned, presumably because of the humiliation. Although we did lose a few more trolls with the move to the WordPress platform, which tracks people’s IP addresses, there is a certain subset of these strange creatures who just never go away.

My favourite was some very, very, very angry Lefty who tried to “comment” on our new blog under one of my posts, leaving a trail of abuse and the fake email, fucktom@whaleoil.cunt, which I admit I laughed at – and still do.

Of course one can always use a VPN to spoof an IP address, if you’re especially paranoid, but that still needs to be used intelligently if you’re sock-puppeting, otherwise your puppets will appear under the same IP address, giving the game away about your “97 other nyms”. And so…

So Gustavo is Glamdring is The Quotidian is … etc, etc. And on it goes:

Interestingly the “F Hamer” (referring of course to the famous Texas Ranger featured in my film review of The Highwaymen) put out some sort-of-Right-talking points: sock-puppetry at its best.

Then there’s this clown…

But really, what sort of a people do this? What strange mental processes and what crippled, miserable, lonely lives do they possess that lead them to this sad juncture?

Whoever “Gustavo” really is it’s clear that he has mental issues, possibly OCD, Bipolar or Depression, or perhaps is just a deep fantasist, and is using this forum as therapy. Sydney West seems a little more sane but again the question arises as to what sort of people do this? They’ve been doing it since blogs first became a thing in the early 00’s.

Whatever the case, as far as my blog is concerned, they’re all on probation.

Wankers.

New Dance Moves

Readers would have recently seen a video I put up about some idiot Antifa/BLM protestor in Portland whose feet caught on fire courtesy of yet another idiot Antifa/BLM protestor throwing a Molotov cocktail at the Portland cops – and hitting his own frontline.

In the manner of the modern world the videos of this have gone viral, and the same modern culture has produced mockery (but not yet parody). The following are two of my favourites.

But I agree with actor James Woods that the following one is better – probably because I always liked Walking On Sunshine more than Footloose.

The Crazy Goes Faster

Ideas that germinated slowly in academia for a couple of decades are now physically rampaging through the streets of the USA.

And that includes a whole bunch of Year Zero shite, courtesy of the Marxists of BLM and the pig-ignorant young morons following them. Supposedly it was the statues of Confederate Generals and the like that were going to be toppled, but as is usual with revolutions, the mobs could not be reined in and they’ve openly declared that everything about the USA now needs to be torn down.

It does make logical sense; if the problem you’re trying to solve – racism, oppression and so forth – is “systemic” then there’s no hope of fixing it up bit-by-bit in the incremental fashion of a democracy. No, the whole thing has to be ripped out “by the roots” (Joe Biden): Slow Joe just thinks he’s talking about the thing itself, but the BLM Marxists and their fellow Democrat politician travellers mean everything because it’s all oppressive.

And so we come to an event that occurred the other day, with the most recent toppling of statues that will end systemic … something…

Screen Shot 2020-07-08 at 11.27.30 AM


The cartoon is referring to the destruction of a statue put up in Madison, Wisconsin, to a Norwegian immigrant, Hans Christian Heg, who was an abolitionist who literally put his life on the line for the cause and paid for it. He died in the ranks of the Union Army at the horrific Battle of Chickamauga in 1863.

Madison-based blogger and retired law professor Ann Althouse went to look the next day. Somebody had put up a small sign telling some truths about the man, but you’ll note the additional scrawl at the bottom which dismisses all that.

Naturally they’ve also gone after the famous Emancipation Memorial in Washington D.C., which lead to this amusing yet awful scene in which a BLM protestor (White) confronts an older Black gentleman who appears to be a tour guide, is protecting the statue, and asks her a simple question: “Who paid for it?“. Her response is to scream endlessly. Anybody who has ever seen the famous TrigglyPuff video will recognise the debating style taught at American universities today.

 

But perhaps the crowning glory of stupidity was when these “protestors” attacked a statue of Frederick Douglass in the little town of Rochester in upstate New York on the July 4th weekend, dragging it off it’s plinth and damaging it so badly it will probably have to be replaced.

And who was Frederick Douglass?

A man who escaped slavery in 1838, he became one of the leading abolitionists and advisor to countless others, including politicians up to Abraham Lincoln, with whom had many discussions and interactions via letters and meetings, always urging him on – sometimes harshly – toward goals like the Emancipation Proclamation and putting Black soldiers into the field with the Union Army. He was, of course, a Republican.

Frederick Douglass

Incidentally the most famous such unit was the 54th Massachusetts and its famous Boston monument was recently spray-painted with BLM-themed graffiti as well.

An éloquent and powerful speaker, Douglass gave one of his most famous speeches on July 5, 1852 to The Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society at Corinthian Hall in Rochester, where he had settled down to live. He titled the speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July“, and he did not hold back on his audience:

I am not included within the pale of this glorious anniversary! Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice, are not enjoyed in common. The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity and independence, bequeathed by your fathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought life and healing to you, has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.

It sounds familiar, but what preceded it does not, as he praised the likes of Washington and Jefferson, even knowing that they had owned slaves like him:

The point from which I am compelled to view them is not, certainly, the most favorable; and yet I cannot contemplate their great deeds with less than admiration. They were statesmen, patriots and heroes, and for the good they did, and the principles they contended for, I will unite with you to honor their memory. They loved their country better than their own private interests…

I cannot imagine any member of BLM saying that now, or the rest of the American Left, including any member of the Democrat Party. Douglass was also specific about the Constitution and its role in slavery:

… take the Constitution according to its plain reading, and I defy the presentation of a single pro-slavery clause in it. On the other hand it will be found to contain principles and purposes, entirely hostile to the existence of slavery…

And he wrapped it up in a message that Martin Luther King would surely have recognised:

Allow me to say, in conclusion, notwithstanding the dark picture I have this day presented of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country. There are forces in operation, which must inevitably work the downfall of slavery. “The arm of the Lord is not shortened,” and the doom of slavery is certain. I, therefore, leave off where I began, with hope.

Those words were spoken by a man who had actually known slavery and real terror, who surely had vastly greater reasons to hate the USA than any living member of BLM does today. But unlike them, Douglass wanted to build America up, not tear it down. In that respect, the likes of BLM and Antifa have more in common with the Confederate slave holders than with Douglass. Perhaps it does make sense that they want to tear down his statue as well.

“That wasn’t Anarcho-Communism” – in just two days

Commune Barricade

I don’t know if the news has penetrated all the way down to New Zealand but it seems that the Antifa and BLM groups in Seattle have finally decided to go beyond starting riots and instead try to build something.

Specifically – and very much in the spirit of the 1871 Paris Commune – they’ve decided to create an Anarcho-Communist “state” in the middle of Seattle.

They even took over a Police Station in the area, violently attacking the cops there for several days before the Mayor ordered the Police to abandon the station and effectively yield a six block area to Antifa.

This capitulation didn’t go down too well with the Seattle Police Chief, Carmen Best, who made the following address to her people to make it clear that it was not her decision. She also talks about the incredible physical assault Antifa and other groups made on her officers for days in full “Punch a Nazi” mode:

 

By contrast Antifa and BLM were ecstatic with their victory, naming the area the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or CHAZ for short and making it clear that it’s not part of the systemically racist USA:

In some respects they got off to a good start for a new nation, even building a makeshift wall around the place and putting armed people to guard them and interrogate anybody wishing to enter – just like the USA! Maybe Trump should get these guys to build the wall along the Mexican border!

Oh right, they believe in open borders – for everybody else.

Same with firearms too, which apparently are only a scary threat to peace and order when they’re held by NRA members.

Naturally the MSM has been largely spinning for them, as this New York Times report had it:

“What has emerged is an experiment in life without the police – part street festival, part commune. Hundreds have gathered to hear speeches, poetry and music.

On Wednesday, children made chalk drawings in the middle of the street.

The entire area was now a homeland for racial justice — and, depending on the protester one talked to, perhaps something more..”

Ah yes, the echoes of history. Just a week ago I was watching, with my youngest, an episode of Simon Schama’s wonderful TV series A History of Britain, which contained these choice quotes:

 

“And human nature seeming born again.

Unhoused beneath the evening star, we saw
Dances of liberty, and, in late hours
Of darkness, dances in the open air.

We rose at signal given and formed a ring
And, hand in hand, danced round and round the board.
All hearts were open. Every tongue was loud with amity and glee.”


That of course was the poet William Wordsworth, tasting the delights of the early aftermath of the French Revolution in 1789 before … well, you know.

And in keeping with such histories – but taking nowhere near as long as the French did – the utopian world of CHAZ began the dreary, predictable descent.

First up: – food shortages:

 
😆😆😆😆😆
 
But don’t worry kids. They know the ultimate answer to this is to grow your own food:

God that is just so sad! Have these people ever actually planted anything in their lives aside from pipe bombs?   Next up – Meet The New Boss!

Raz Simone was merely a little known rap artist a few days ago but he has guns and is willing to use the sort of violence that the Seattle Police would not, as this Tweet from hernandez1987 @WeAreAntifa2020 showed:

Raz Simone and crew assault a man for tagging. Man said repeatedly he was kicked in the head, punched and had his glasses broken. 

For tagging! Seems harsh but nobody ever said Revolutionary Justice was soft. As this other Tweet showed, some people were a little … shocked:

Policing in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone by @RazSimone. There appear to be no body cameras, reports, or oversight and accountability.

Dude! Why would they need cameras and all that shit when they’re not the Police?.

Speaking of which, somebody who observed this assault called… the Seattle Police, who now seem to have the measure of CHAZ as this 911 operator shows with this awesome response:

“Ah,… that appears to be in the New Republic of Capital Hill, they can handle that”

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣  

Raz also knows how to spin such events as well as any government department: The Seattle Police also finally admitted they had received reports of little businesses in the area being “taxed” by CHAZ.

Frankly that word smacks too much of the State, I prefer the old-fashioned term, “Protection Money“.

I think Raz is going to do well although I can’t see such a flamboyant figure calling himself General Secretary, let alone Executive Officer of the Week – with his decisions ratified at a special biweekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs but a two-thirds majority in the case of external affairs.

I suspect that he thinks you can wield supreme executive power just because he’s carrying an AK-47.

It also looks like he’s more interested in another role.

Although perhaps he could start building an actual Fire Department…

As with everything else the Far Left touches, they’re finding that it’s much harder to stop a fire than to start one.

Yes, it’s all very funny in a sadly moronic, historical way, and will continue to be so – except for the 500 poor bloody homeowners and businesses in the area.

Tucker Carlson certainly had a lot of fun on the story with, The World Welcomes Its Newest Nation:

I guess none of the CHAZ Antifans and BLM’rs have ever seen the following diagram, but it’s truly appropriate here.

We’re On Your Side!

If you’re in the mood for a bit of Black Humour today here’s some things that should lighten your feeling as White People discover the limitations of Far Left ideology. Again!

I know, it’s tiresome after 100 million deaths and countless screwed up societies but some people just never learn.

The funniest is this video that has gone viral of two White frat boys giving the big thumbs up to rioters in a US city from their apartment.

Otherwise known as Play Stupid Games: Win Stupid Prizes. I haven’t heard White people this whiny when confronted by violence since Mick Jagger went to his Public Schoolboy accent and tone at Altamont.

Then there is this Antifa twat getting arrested by …. Black Lives Matter protestors. And good on the BLM guys since this little shit was using tools to dig out paving bricks for a protest. This is what Antifa trains to do – and the intention is for Blacks to be blamed for the resulting riot.

Finally! The Protest I’ve wanted to see.

Well, one of them anyway.

One of my Kiwi friends lives in NYC and as a good Te Aro Valley girl she’s pretty Left-wing, right down to her partner being an anarchist. A real one that is, who does everything he can to evade government rules without landing in jail, rather than all these Antifa poseurs. Funnily enough he’s a Southie, shades of Good Will Hunting.

As such she was very much in tune with Bill deBlasio (C) as he ran for Mayor of NYC. Even so, I asked her why she could not have voted for some other Democrat than him? Could she not see that he was basically a grifter, leveraging his “Far Left” credentials to obtain more wealth for his family at the expense of getting any of his ideas in place (about the only good thing about him from my POV).

But no. DeBlasio was the dream brought to life.

And now here NYC is, in the middle of his freaking nightmare.

Here’s Twitter video of a large crowd, stretching for 19 blocks, outside Gracie Mansion chanting for DeBlasio to resign. As the header has it, “If anything is gonna bring police and protesters together In NYC“. Also found it on YouTube:

 

As one comment on that Twitter thread bluntly puts it:

He should resign. He has allowed more harm to come to NYC than any mayor in my lifetime

That’s it in a nutshell.

 
 

Still, there’s the “Doh” factor here; you elected a Far Left mouthpiece, what did you think was going to happen to your city? I wonder if she voted for him?

There were some people joking that the thousands of protesters were just there to pick up Chiara de Blasio, who had been arrested during a protest a couple of nights ago. Kids, eh! Although in this case deBlasio probably wished he was out there protesting himself!

I have not checked in with my friend to see if her support has wavered but I think it’s fair to say that everyone of every stripe now hates de Blasio. The left are angry about him imposing a curfew. The Right (to the extent it even exists in NYC) and the centrists see the city dissolving into chaos, and de Blasio doing nothing.

The cops have long hated his guts as he flexed his Far left thinking and threw them to the wolves, even while they were getting assassinated in the streets. Is it any wonder that just the other day two “Progressive” lawyers were arrested for firebombing a police car. As well as another woman who threw a Molotov cocktail at a Police car with four cops inside.

Who needs Antifa when you’ve got ordinary citizens pulling this shit. The education system of the Far Left has done its job.

It got so bad that even fellow Democrat, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has talked of trying to remove him as mayor.

“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night.

You have 38,000 NYPD people; it is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property. Use the police, protect property and people. Look at the videos, it was a disgrace.

[I have the] option is to displace the mayor […] bring in the National Guard” [and] take over. However, I don’t think we’re at that point.

Well, not yet, Skippy. But the city has already had the shit kicked out of it by the fantastic incompetence of both deBlasio(C) and Cuomo (D) so you have to wonder where the breaking point is in terms of elections. What does it take to get the Democrats to lose in these places?

It would seem that YouTube has caught the same protest via MSM news channels but predictably they edited and chyroned the hell out of it to focus on the Floyd/BLM aspects while tastefully ignoring the later chants.

And along those lines, here’s the Front Page of the NYT on the day after Manhattan got looted and trashed.

 
They’re so far up the butthole of the Democrat Party and so focused on attacking Trump and exploiting the Floyd murder that even mass violence and looting in their own city could not overwhelm that objective. What a disgrace they are.
 
Still, they – and deBlasio – could not ignore it forever, not with incredible video of the looting going out on Social Media, like this: 

More businesses in New York City being looted tonight, many small businesses. The city leadership is FAILING!

And this.

Another night of Mayhem in NYC: Looters hit Zara until the cops arrive. Supervisor ( white shirt) confronts them & is thrown violently to the ground. Tell me again why these Officers put themselves through this? Can’t be for the money.

So they did manage to squeak out a report, but even then they just had to put spin on it with the following headline, After Peaceful Protests, Looters Strike at Macy’s and Across Midtown
 
Yeah right! All of sudden people just went crazy for no reason at all, as if the Joker was in Gotham for real.

The looters tore off the plywood that boarded up Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square, swarming by the dozens inside to steal whatever they could find before being chased down by the police. Others smashed the windows at a Nike store, grabbing shirts, jeans and zip-up jackets. They crashed into a Coach store,ransacked a Bergdorf Goodman branch and destroyed scores of smaller storefronts along the way. 

The eruption of looting in the central business district of Manhattan — long an emblem of the New York’s stature and prowess — struck yet another blow to a city reeling from the nation’s worst coronavirus outbreak.

It’s probably why Cuomo hit the roof. All his wealthy Manhattan “Liberal” friends suddenly felt things getting a little too close to their precious hides. Queens and Brooklyn can burn but Manhattan? Perish the thought.
 
I rarely read the NYT but I thought I’d look at the comments on that article to see what readers were saying and this comment had the most upticks:

This is what it looks like when a social movement dies in real time. The coverage in the NYT doesn’t do justice to the sheer utter destruction in significant parts of the city – when you see it, it looks like war. People sitting comfortably in the suburbs have no problem justifying the criminality while playing woke on Twitter, but I’d love to see their reactions when its their communities that are being overrun, their neighbors’ businesses are being looted and their streets are left burning. The protests are over and the message has been heard; at this point its just enabling criminality.
