Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Playing into their hands?

Leave it to Daniel to get to the heart of it.

Street violence raises the bar so that only the violent will participate in protests. If you “no platform” campus speakers, then the only speakers you get will be those willing to face bomb threats, arson, and physical assaults. If you fire people for their views, political activism becomes the province of anonymous trolls and unemployed street thugs. Extremism limits political discourse to extremists. 

If Democrats really want to stop the rise of Neo-Nazi violence, there’s a very easy way. Stop normalizing black nationalism and the Alt-Left. End the racist witch hunts for white privilege. Make it clear that street violence is unacceptable and that racism is bad no matter who it comes from. Allow people you disagree with to express their views without trying to destroy their lives. 

But that’s the opposite of what the Dems will do. They don’t want fewer Neo-Nazis; they want more of them. They don’t want fewer attacks like Charlottesville and Charleston. They want more of them.

Charlottesville is what happens when civil society fails. And those who set the terms of permissive discourse, who control the media, academia and social norms, are responsible for the failure. 

Conservatives don’t have that kind of power. It’s the left that does.

When the left insists that everyone with white skin is part of white supremacy, that Shakespeare, Beethoven and all of Western civilization embody white supremacy, it’s echoing the actual talking points of white supremacy. 

If you tell all Obama critics and Trump supporters that they’re racists often enough, some will decide that maybe they are racists. 

If you tell a student who objects to racially segregated areas on campus that she is a white supremacist, she will be more likely to become one.

Uncomfortable compromises are how we learn to live with each other. It means that there can be memorials of Robert E. Lee and streets named after Malcolm X. Tolerating people whose views we don’t like is one of the best ways to marginalize domestic extremists. When one set of extremists is empowered to wipe out the other, we end up with a civil war. Just ask Edmund Ruffin and John Brown. 

Democrats claim a mandate from the “Right Side of History” to eliminate all the compromises. Catholic nuns must pay for abortions and birth control, Christian bakers and florists must participate in gay weddings, every white person must confess their racism, and every left-wing extremist must get their way. 

That’s how you tear a society apart.

Daniel ends with a plea to the Democrat-Socialists to decide if this is what they really want. Unfortunately for all of us who only wish to be left alone and don’t want to have to make the same hard choices about going to war for their freedom that our Founders did, I think the answer to that question is already clear enough. The real question is whether they can somehow be forced to reconsider before it’s too late—for all of us.

  1. Well actually, that is not the REAL question.

    Instead, the REAL question is:

    Will this country’s “Law Enforcement” FINALLY decide to honor their oath of office to the Constitution? Or will they instead merely continue to do WHATEVER they are told, as long as that paycheck keeps comin’ in?

    Charlottesville once again proved the answer to that question. I hope that “Law Enforcement” and their families are not too surprised when the piper comes for his pay.

  2. Mark, pretend for a moment I’m your supervisor and you’re a cop who spends all day pissing on minor thug fires and goes home exhausted every night and crashes into bed just to get enough sleep to make it through the next day. You know the top boss is a useless prick of course but I’m just middle management I’ve been neutral.

    Pretend for a moment that you have had NO clue up to now that I’m a plant, I’ve said nothing to give myself away, I’ve done nothing to give myself away… or at least nothing *obvious*… maybe I made a few mealy mouthed platitudes about this or that but they were so weak-sauce that well-cooked ramen noodles would win an arm wrestling contest with my words.

    Now I tell you rioters are causing problems and destroying property. And I tell you people are going to die if we don’t ACT NOW and you have to go arrest them to save lives and keep the peace.

    What do you do? Do you stop to google the facts on the internet? Do you call your best blogger friend to find out which side is right or wrong?

    HELL NO!

    You act. And then, later, maybe you find out how badly you were used and you switch sides. MAYBE.

    Because some truly are thugs. Some of them will enjoy it.

    But a lot will not. A lot are malinformed people who simply have their heads in the sand and have never even known just how much truth (5% at best) is in the FNN / PMSNBC / etc. networks. Hell before Trump proved them liars probably 99% of the country still thought that CNN was just “slanted” and not outright “bent”.

    SOME of your “pigs” are thugs. Not all. SOME of them will wake up and realize how badly they are already being used. (Unfortunately, not all.)

    And some of them already know, but don’t know how/when to act. So they engage in ‘minor’ pushback like protesting King DeBlasio’s unconstitutional gun grabbing. (And that in one of the five or so most libtard states out there!)

    Quit acting like they are all traitors. Unfortunately some are. But most of them JUST DON’T KNOW the truth… yet, at least.

  3. Friar Bob, pretend for a moment that you swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Then pretend that you watch every day as your Masters and your Brothers and Sisters in Blue spit on that Constitution with impunity, because they know full well you won’t do a damned thing about it as long as that paycheck keeps comin’ in. Then pretend that you’re a Rove Republican, and have all the character traits associated therewith. No morals. No principles. No scruples. No honor. But you don’t really have to pretend at all, because that is the Blue Wall in this country. Every pig in the Dallas pig sty knows full well that their fellow pigs murdered Jerry Waller. Every pig in the Lake County sty knows full well that their fellow pigs murdered Andrew Lee Scott. Every pig in Habersham knows that their fellow pigs maimed “Bou Bou” for life. And their families know it, too, yet cheer them on anyway. May every one of them soon burn in hell where they belong for what they have done. Hell, even the Mafia Enforcers swore an oath before they got their jobs. But at least THEY honored that oath. Or they were gone. Permanently.

  4. Surely the author of that piece of stupidity isn’t really naive enough to believe the judeo-left doesn’t want civil war? They believe they have the numbers now since the GOP helped them bring in millions of mexicans and muslims. They’d rather we simply submit, but war’s okay with them. It really is.

    They don’y give a fig about “respecting others beliefs”. They care about winning and they’ve been on a roll for decades.

    We’re losing and soon there’ll be no going back. What do WE do next?

  5. As smart as I consider Daniel Greenfield to be,
    this particular article REEKED
    of “Can’t We All Just Get Along?” and
    “Give Peace A Chance.”

    Well, F THAT SH!T.
    Too late to apologize.

    The Left must be eradicated,
    so that we may survive.

  6. @Friar Bob
    Then…it really doesn’t matter WHO offs the Dupes, eh?!
    They act as the Useful Idiots of one side and then,
    perhaps wistfully, end up being trashed when the
    Leftists they enabled come down on them before
    anyone of the Right seeks retribution…
    but we’re supposed to have “sympathy” for them?!

  7. Regarding “are we playing into their hands?”

    Doesn’t matter anymore.
    YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES:
    1) continue on the GOPe Bush/Romney/McCain path
    get politically and eventually physically raped and murdered,
    OR
    2) become your own BASED STICKMAN
    and beat the living sh!t out of any
    Leftist b*stard who makes trouble for you.

    Fight or die.
    It’s that simple.

    Who to “blame” for it is
    1) another matter
    AND
    2) irrelevant.

    It is how it is.
