Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Fighting words…

…or empty threats? First, the backstory:

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday laughed at a new trend by militant leftists: Dumping milkshakes on politicians they don’t like. Co-host Tony Dokoupil began with a whimsical recounting: “In the latest of a series of attacks on right-wing politicians, Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage was doused with a milkshake yesterday. That was actually salted caramel if anyone is wondering.”

This prompted laughter from Dokoupil’s co-hosts. Continuing the jovial discussion of political violence, he added, “I’m sure it feels great. I’m sure people love the feeling. Pictures fly around the world.”

Ace responds:

You know what else might feel great?
Throwing milkshakes at CBS personnel, both when they’re doing live-shots and when they’re just walking down the street on their own private time.

The rules you make for me, you also make for yourself.

For people who bitch and complain when they’re jeered at the opposite political party’s campaign rallies, they sure take a more blithe attitude about conservatives being physically assaulted.

Well, like I said: We’ll see how great it feels when the media starts getting pelted with some harmless, fun, happytime street justice.

The sentiment expressed is perfectly true, I have no quarrel with it. Problem is that, as with the Ogabe-era blogosphere bluster about how the Democrat-Socialists were surely going to regret it when their own tactics were thrown back at them by newly-empowered Righties, it never, ever comes to pass.

Sadly enough, the only person even making an attempt at forcing the Left’s New Rules down their throats has been one Donald J Trump, President of the United States of America. And when he does, or even talks about doing it, the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth each time from the fraudmeisters of Conservative Inc over the horror of it all is truly dismal to witness. My God, the pathetic feebs even get their panties in a bunch when he so much as hurls a few insults at them on Twitter. And THESE are the ones we think are going to finally draw a line, say enough already, and finally start dealing out some quid pro quo most righteous in return?

Note ye well, all this is a problem for more reasons than just the obvious one: that the effective suppression of all dissent is simply unacceptable. For one, the too-reliable Righty all-talk-no-action response to continually escalating violence has clearly emboldened and encouraged the Leftist enemy, rather than instilling a healthy sense of trepidation and caution in them. This accomplishes absolutely nothing beyond guaranteeing that the assaults will continue, and worsen. For another, it amounts to abdicating the field of battle and tacitly yielding to the Left’s encroachment on our liberty and our rights, granting them victories they don’t deserve and accepting self-inflicted losses we can’t afford.

Not to jump on Ace too hard for this, mind. Vengeance fantasies and daydreams about seeing justice visited upon our enemies at last are very satisfying things to ponder now and then, a harmless enough way to pass the occasional idle moment—actually, a reasonable, completely human response to intolerable provocation. But if we really want this crap to cease, the sorry truth remains: They will not stop. They will have to BE stopped. Sorry, but I’m afraid we all need to face up to the fact that it’s going to take a bit more than just talking amongst ourselves to do it.

  1. “…guaranteeing that the assaults will continue, and worsen.”

    That is how it will go because the left has no brains or brakes. Today its milkshakes but in the not too distant future it will be human waste, acid, bleach, and on and on. Reminds me of Hunt for Red October: “This business will get out of control!”

    And that is just what the left thinks they want. I suppose order form chaos is what they are thinking but the dogs of war tend to do as they please once off the leash.

  2. “…blogosphere bluster about how the Democrat-Socialists were surely going to regret it when their own tactics were thrown back at them by newly-empowered Righties…”

    This is neatly balanced by quaking and shuddering over the danger of taking some bold action against the Left, because that will “set a precedent” which the Left will use against us the next time they’re in charge. This ignores the fact that the Left will persecute us with or without precedent. It’s what they want and like to do, and they’ll find a way whether we help them or not. And in any case, the dreaded “precedent” is ALWAYS set by the Left; that’s what they do. They’re “progressives”, after all, boldly going where no man has gone before. The idea that some milktoast Rightie could come up with a variant of depravity that hasn’t already been tried by the Left is ludicrous.
