No Minister

Three things happened today. I was my birthday; the Police finally acted to clear the rabble illegally occupying Parliament’s grounds, disregarding the Trespass Orders issued against them and preventing Wellingtonians from going about their lawful business while the Russians stepped up their invasion of the Ukraine seemingly determined to turn their cities into wasteland.

My birthday was the least important of three events. I have, in cricketing parlance, reached 77 not out having successfully fended off any number of ‘Googlies’ and ‘Wrong Uns’ over the years. No significant health issues and I’m fully mobile. Can’t ask for much more. In short, life is good.

It was always a matter of when rather than if that the Police were going to act to end the occupation of Parliament’s grounds by the protesters. They made their point and they should have moved on. There was no way the government was going to cave into their demands especially given that fringe elements had infiltrated the protest threatening violence against the Prime Minister. That way in not our way. You dislike what the government is doing and you vote accordingly at the ballot box. Can I say something else. Ardern is not a communist and its pretty stupid to argue that she is. In the continuum of recent Labour Party leaders I would see her as governing in the Norman Kirk/David Lange tradition … full of well meaning but half baked ideas but totally bereft of any understanding of how the economy actually works … and that will be her downfall along with her embrace of of separatist agenda laid out in He Puapua.

But of the three issues, Putin declaring war on the Ukraine is by far the most serious. Russia will conquor through shear military might inheriting a devastated country and a populace who will refuse to be subjugated. On the world scene it will ‘enjoy’ pariah state status for many years to come. It’s own economy will suffer substantially. NATO will emerge strengthened and hitherto neutral nations (eg Finland) may well look at joining NATO as a guard against further Russian aggression The dynamic of the relationship between Russia and China may also change with those two nations forging closer ties in response to Russia’s isolation and that, in itself, will raise tensions in our part of the world. Putin unleashed the dogs of war and they ain’t going back in their kennels anytime soon.

The fate the Left would love for all Trump supporters

with 5 comments

American investigative reporter Julie Kelly has done sterling work reporting on the aftermath of the January 6, 2021 “Insurrection” and the reaction of America’s security state to the rioters.

But even her reports of the lengths the US State has gone to in destroying these people has not been exceeded by this latest:

Matthew Perna did nothing wrong on January 6, 2021. The Pennsylvania man walked through an open door on the Senate side of the building shortly before 3 p.m. that afternoon. Capitol police, shown in surveillance video, stood by as hundreds of Americans entered the Capitol. Wearing a “Make America Great Again” sweatshirt, Perna, 37, left after about 20 minutes.

Less than two weeks later, Perna was ensnared in what the former top U.S. prosecutor called a “shock and awe” campaign to round up Trump supporters and deter them from demonstrating at Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, 2021. After he discovered his image on the FBI’s most wanted list for January 6, Perna immediately contacted his local FBI office and voluntarily submitted to questioning; on January 18, six FBI agents arrested Perna at his home.

His life from that point turned into a nightmare. Perna was indicted by a grand jury in February 2021 on four counts including obstruction of an official proceeding and trespassing misdemeanors. Despite his nonviolent participation in the events of that day — he did not assault anyone, carry a weapon, or vandalize property — Biden’s Justice Department and local news media nonetheless made his life pure hell. Whenever his hometown paper, the Sharon Herald, published an article on its social media account about Perna, the majority of replies were “horrible and brutal,” his aunt, Geri Perna, told me on the phone Sunday. After more than a year of legal and public torture, Perna saw no way out.

On Friday night, Matthew Perna hung himself in his garage.

“They broke him, they mentally broke him,” Geri said through racking sobs as she explained why her loved one ended his life. “He had run out of hope. I know he couldn’t take it any more.”

Who needs Putin when you’ve got the FBI and the Department of “Justice” in your own country.

I’d forgotten this but here it is, courtesy of Liberal law professor Ann Althouse’s US blog post on the subject:

“As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’ We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes.’ When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’
When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.”

The latest in our White Supremacist Watch list

with 6 comments

Another Curia survey, this time looking at the protestors themselves:

Who is at the protest and why?

Apparently Sean Plunket’s new online show, The Platform, is the one who commissioned Curia to do the polls and it involved sending people into the crowd to do the job. The response rate was an incredible 95%.

If only more reporters had done this. But then the results would have screwed their narrative, which I see Stuff is continuing to push today with a headline about “Holocaust distortion and anti-Semitism being rife” in the group. Not what the Curia poll found.

Turns out that it’s not a White Supremacist anti-vaxx protest but more of more of a Labour/Green non-violent anti-mandate protest made up of a reasonably representative group of New Zealanders, almost half of whom l voted for Labour/Greens at the last election. Almost a third of the group are Maori and the proportion of Maori Party voters is way out of line with their nation-wide vote.

I wasn’t surprised that 76.9% are unvaccinated. I’m sure that Bob Jones is surprised that we haven’t seen dozens of bodies from the sick and the dying, as he predicted two weeks ago with Doing God’s Work:

I can see why Luxon and Seymour don’t want to meet this River Of Filth.

It’s also likely why both Chris Trotter and Bob Jones have held back comments on their blogs for several days now; I suspect they’re getting a lot less support than they expected for their sneering attacks on the protestors.

I also had to laugh at DPF’s comment:

While I was concerned about health and safety issues, my staff report that they did not encounter any threatening behaviour at all.

Remember that DPF lives in Wellington and frequents this exact area. Looks like he continues to rely on the likes of Stuff for news.

Just to summarise:

  • These protestor folks are not alt-right, neo-Nazis.
  • They are not intent on violence.
  • They do not seem to be the source of a covid outbreak.

How difficult would it have been for a MSM journalist to ascertain a few facts two weeks ago?

The protest at parliament has been hijacked by a bunch of loonies, conspiracy theorists, the ‘Bishops’ mob, anti 1080 zealots, neo Nazi white extremists and this strange fellow ….

A beret I don’t recognise; ‘Chalky’ (Education Corps) collar tags; medals that I can’t identify (except perhaps for the first one) and a side view photograph (which I have not published) has him sporting para wings. A missfit among other missfits.

What I would have done

with 13 comments

During the week, I think as early as Tuesday, I sent a couple of messages to some MPs whose phone number I have. I implored them to be true to their values, and the values of the party they represent in parliament, and when the convoy arrives to go down and meet them; address them, tell them you are listening and understand, show empathy to their plight, and generally behave like a MP should behave. It required courage, but if MPs cannot be courageous, then we’re truly fucked. I explained that these protestors feel no one is listening to them, and that to listen, and then to act, is to lead.

I was basically ignored.

So that got me thinking, if I were a MP, what would I have done? This is what.

I would have walked amongst them. I would have talked to them, and heard their stories. I would have asked how their jobs, businesses, and lives were after being segregated and treated like second class citizens (our PM has acknowledged she is doing this). I would have acknowledged their issues and their plight. I would have taken a few names (if they wanted me to) and personalised their plight in parliament during general debate. I would have made a fuss of their position in the media. I probably would have gone to visit their business, or their home, to see how the lockdowns, mandates and they tyranny of he restrictions has affected them. I figured by doing this, I was doing my job.

But clearly I’m not a MPs backside.

To be a MP you have to sit in the chamber and make a speech. Or take photos from Bowen House using your phone and post them to social media with sarcastic comments about the “riff raff”, like Chris Bishop has done.

If by doing this I risked being ejected from caucus or risk being chastised and pushed down the list next year, or generally if it ruined my political career (if I decided to stand again) then I would take that, because being true to myself and my values, and doing the job I was elected to do, means more to me than sitting on my arse in Wellington pontificating and giving speeches.

I would also have given this message to the protestors: be peaceful, hold your ground, be true to your values. If the government uses the force of the police to maintain its mandate thuggery and its authoritarian restrictions, then obey the police. Don’t get arrested. Regroup and reconsider your strategy. Above all, Kia Kaha fellow citizens.

I had a conversation with fellow Act Party member about all of this during the week. He agreed with me, and wondered whether MMP has meant a lot of these MPs don’t have constituencies and therefore aren’t accountable, or simply aren’t human.

There’s probably a lot in that.

ON ST JACINDA AND THE BISHOP

with 3 comments

The ‘lady’ is becoming a prisoner of her own rhetoric. Having spent the last eighteen months banging the drum as to how deadly the virus is (and in the process frightening the wits out of a lot of people by releasing modeling predicating up to 7,000 deaths even with the majority of the population vaccinated) she is now faced with the Auckland outbreak marching on unabated and spreading to the Waikato. Against that background she would find it very difficult to justify moving Auckland down a notch to level 2. Were she to do so then all her previous announcements can be dismissed as hubris. She has dug herself a hole getting deeper by the minute.

I have little time for cults and the likes of the self anointed Bishop Tamaki and his Destiny Church. From where I sit he seems to live the life of Riley financed by the tithings of those who believe he is indeed the Messiah. But I do defend his right to protest and I dismiss as click bait journalism those who would criticise him for holding the rally on the forecourt of the Auckland War Memorial Museum. It is indeed a sacred place but you can cogently argue that those who are remembered there died to protect our freedom … and that includes the right to protest peacefully against vaccine mandates, lock-down’s et al.

Let’s hope that never in New Zealand will we see a repeat of Gruppenfuhrer Andrews action in Victoria in forcing a virtual universal vaccine mandate on the population and letting his police force run riot in dealing with protesters. Andrews is the hard unsmiling face of socialism losing control of the situation. It couldn’t happen here in godsown could it?

So the beatings did change minds!

with 3 comments

Last year cities across the USA exploded with violent riots, led by Burn Loot Murder in the wake of the death of one George Floyd while he was being arrested by police. Democrat-controlled cities as it happened, since they’re hotbeds of systemic racism.

Ground Zero for this was the city of Minneapolis, previously only really known for The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the 1970’s.

To show their sympathy and understanding for the Peaceful Protests, the “leaders” of the city not only pulled the cops from defending one of their precinct buildings, which was promptly burned to the ground, they started defunding their police force.

This led to entirely predictable results:

Homicides in Minneapolis are up 50 percent, with nearly 75 people killed across the city so far this year. More than 500 people have been shot, the highest number in more than a decade and twice as many as in 2019. And there have been more than 4,600 violent crimes — including hundreds of carjackings and robberies — a five-year high.

Not that it mattered to these people – at least initially.

It’s very sad that humans have to endure so much punishment before they see the light, although it’s a fair bet that the political leaders like Councilwoman Bender suffered no direct pain at all. But now the circle is complete.

So they’ve changed their minds and now they’re going to increase police funding, to the tune of $6.4 million per year, to hire more cops. Ordinary people have been hurt enough it seems and OrangeManBad has been defeated. What’s the bet that the BLM response will be tiny or non-existent.

The trouble is that it’s not really about the money anymore. What person in their right mind would want to join the MPD? A career spent with a target painted on your back with your Mayor and Councillors holding a large knife. You know that any encounter with a criminal that goes bad will likely be blamed on you, resulting in not just the end of your career as an MPD cop but loss of pension and employment prospects anywhere else, possibly even outside of law enforcement, as the Cancel brigade deems you a racist and goes after you and your family.

I can’t see many people buying into that, also knowing that even if the arrest goes well it won’t mean anything in the wake of District Attorney’s determined to show the protestors that they’re on their side – Left-Wing protestors admittedly. The following is from Portland but the same thing has been happening with DA’s in Seattle, Chicago, and Minneapolis.

It will be interesting to see the difference between this sort of “punishment” for throwing Molotov cocktails at cops vs what awaits those who smashed windows and invaded the “sacred spaces” of the Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6th. Hannah Lilly’s actions and punishment mirror those of the folk who rioted in Washington on January 20, 2017, where the two hundred people arrested for such things had their charges dropped. But now, twenty years for Sedition is the rumour.

But then politicians are more important than cops, or any other subject of the nation for that matter.

In the case of Minneapolis you also have to consider the fact that people and companies have already seen enough and bailed on the city. I doubt this sop will bring them back, especially when it’s likely that the cop at the center of the George Floyd incident, Derek Chauvin, will be found not guilty of Second Degree Murder next month, and may even go free given that all the evidence may make it hard to even make Second Degree Manslaughter stick. His three comrades, facing lessor charges, may also go free.

Who would want to be a Minneapolis cop on that day?

The Minneapolis Riots: Looking back – and forward

with 11 comments

Over the last eighteen years one of the US political blogs I’ve enjoyed reading the most has been Powerline, run by four guys, three of them retired lawyers.

Interestingly two of them were communists and Vietnam War protestors in the late 60’s / early 70’s, something highlighted in my article from last year, Vietnam and Dartmouth. All are now Republicans of course.

Probably their most famous break was in 2004 when they, in concert with another blogger, discovered that damaging documents about President Bush’s National Guard service in the 1970’s had been forged and used to fool CBS news. This ultimately led to the downfall of CBS news anchor Dan Rather, a just ending for a prick whose partisan animus against the GOP had been obvious for years.

Normally the blog just covers such national politics and ignores the local stuff of where two of them live – Minnesota. One, Scott Johnson, had already been drawn to covering the local news of that state’s insane lockdown efforts in combating Chinese Lung Rot over the last three months, asking the questions the local reporters seemed incapable of asking – until his press access was cut off, which is now being pursued in a law suit.

But both he and the other man, John Hinderaker, found themselves witnesses to the riots, looting and arson in Minneapolis, starting with Minneapolis on Fire, which contained nearly live Twitter video feeds via a young friend who went into the heart of the insanity.

We got a Blackhawk down. We got a Blackhawk down”.

But as is the case with blogs they focused more on the story behind all this news, starting with Minneapolis Goes Baghdad, which analysed the hopeless response of the Mayor of the city, the boyish Jacob Frey and the almost equally hopeless Governor of the state, Tim Walz. They’re both Democrats of course; it’s a very Deep Blue state:

I watched the shellshocked press conference live at 1:30 a.m. overnight, but cannot find a video of it this morning. One needs to view it fully to comprehend the trouble we are in.

 
 

There are videos supplied and it was a cringe-inducing performance from both “leaders”, as Walz tried to patch things up with Frey, whom he’d basically thrown under the bus earlier in the day for having pulled the Police back and losing control of the situation, describing the city’s response as an “abject failure.

But this was nothing new for the mayor or the city. In fact it had been coming for a long time as the Powerline folks had pointed out with a couple of posts in 2019. First up was a Sep 29 piece that described the increasing crime rates in the city, complete with a horrific video of a gang of Black youths beating the shit out of some White guy right outside the downtown major sports stadium. The four professional sports teams that play in the city wrote an Op-Ed in the Star-Tribune pleading for increased policing of the area:

We are not alone. This opinion is shared by many who call Minneapolis their home. A recent survey found that an overwhelming 68% of Minneapolis residents supported adding 125 police officers, and 63% support adding 250 officers. 

But Mayor Frey and his council would have none of it. They proposed just 14 extra officers with one council member saying that they needed to do “a better job with our youth violence intervention strategies to support the youth who are in the downtown area between 9:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m.”.

The idea of “supporting” the people being attacked by those “youths” is apparently an obsolete idea, probably because they’re the oppressors of such youth. As the head of the local police union put it:

The city council…ran on an anti-police agenda and they all made it. It’s ultra-left. It’s been [an] extreme Democrat-controlled council. It’s been that way for 22 years. …
It’s an ultra-left agenda that the police are the problem. [They say] it’s a racially biased criminal justice system here, and we need to de-police. That’s the overtone of our council.

Sure, but it should be noted that the same Police Union has supported the Democrat Party in all elections and the favour is returned because the Democrat party loves public sector unions. When Trump visited the city in October 2019 the violence really unloaded on the streets:

They battled police officers. They attacked Republicans leaving Target Center. They set bonfires and burned patriotic regalia. They carried the flag of the defunct Soviet Union.

They assaulted an uncounted number of normal citizens leaving the Target Center. They struck a woman across the head with a piece of lumber. They waved a sign that said, “Blue Lives Don’t Fucking Matter.” The Minneapolis Chief of Police reported, “
Objects containing liquid believed to be urine were hurled at some of my officers along with bottles and rocks. Police horses were also assaulted by protesters striking them with sticks.”

The recent riots should therefore have come as no surprise to Mayor Frey or Governor Walz, but obviously he and his fellow Democrats thought they could use such mobs as weapons against the GOP, never imagining that the mob would one day turn on themselves and their city. Obviously this has also come as a shock to the voters who put such people in power.

Nor should the calls to defund the police have come as a surprise, although even the Powerline guys were taken aback when first reporting on June 3rd that a single member of the Minnesota Legislature – one Aisha Gomez – had demanded the abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department, How Crazy are the Democrats? This Crazy. The title well captures their amazement as well as the notion common on the US Right that these are just a few crazy fringe individuals.

They, and everybody else, quickly learned that was not the case, as they noted Mayor Frey getting booed off-stage for opposing defunding…

Mayor Frey: not sufficiently Far Left
.

… and then watched the City Council on June 7 get a veto-proof majority for defunding.

The city’s charter requires that it have a Police Department but just the other day the Council unanimously voted for an amendment to that. It still has to be approved by the Charter Commission and then voted on as referendum in November, but at this stage it would be no surprise to see it clear both hurdles, when you see things like this from the City Council president, Lisa Bender.

So being able to call the Police when your home is being invaded “comes from a place of privilege“.

 
The proposed replacement is the Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention (I’m surprised they didn’t call it the Committee of Public Safety).

In the meantime there are businesses and people that are not waiting around to see what the fruits of all this will be, having finally had their eyes opened as to where such thinking has already led:

A Minneapolis manufacturing company has decided to leave the city, with the company’s owner saying he can’t trust public officials who allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots. The move will cost the city about 50 jobs. 

They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”

Well of course they were. He’s a class of people that the modern US Democrat Party cares less about than their new, cool friends in BLM. They’re what win elections for the Democrats.

Wyrobek’s company was one of some 500 businesses that were damaged or destroyed by arson, looting and simple destruction of property: some $500 million of damage. Many of the businesses were owned by minorities. When you add in the high taxes and endless regulations, driven by the overall attitude of hostility towards such businesses from the Democrats in power, there really is no point in staying in Minneapolis or Minnesota. And how true is that of other Democrat controlled locales?

Finally! The Protest I’ve wanted to see.

with 20 comments

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.

Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive But to be young was very heaven.

Hey Kids. What day is it?

It’s RIOTING DAY.

When you’ve been locked down in your parent’s home for two to three months without sex or fast food it’s good to break free – and it’s even better if you’re breaking the law to do so.

Or even multiple laws, with the first to go being the ones you claimed were so important for the last two or three months, the Lockdown Wuhan Flu rules of social distancing, maintaining your “bubble” and so forth.

The trouble is when you allow a protest to turn into a riot, because riots take on a life of their own.

And that’s when they start bouncing back at you.

Like this idiot, who apparently is a former reporter for the US Sports Network, ESPN – now unemployed. In these collected Tweets you can watch his progress from being just down on The Man on May 29, with “Burn that shit down” to May 31when he starts complaining about “they” had to be beaten back from the gates of his precious community. He’s since deleted the Tweets but is still getting hammered on the forum.

Similarly this idiot was just super excited about it all at the start.

And then….

Life moves pretty fast! Eh Kathlyn?

And of course there are always the fringe groups looking to cash in on the action for a little bit of fundamental societal transformation. Twitter has – reluctantly – suspended this account.

I see that the propaganda organs of the Left have been hard at work trying to claim that all the pieces of White trash involved in these riots were White Nationalists/Supremacists – even Russians!!!! Which is rather strange when you consider all these Hollywood types throwing money at getting them out of jail. Are they closet White Supremacists?

And of course those do-gooders have another political message to deliver..

 

… because dominating the cities of Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Cleveland and many other cesspits of crime for decades apparently was not enough.

Finally, in some good news, there are these guys. In 1992 it was South Koreans on the rooftops of their stores during the Rodney King riots, but since then millions of Indians have immigrated to the USA and…
