Normal American begs to differ with my “Amerizuela” post from last week, offering an alternative metaphor of his own.
Portland’s descent into blue-haired, gender-confused madness is something new in America. The city’s criminal justice system tolerates vandalism and assaults by communist thugs, while punishing normal Americans who dare to protect themselves.
Street commie antics in Washington, D.C. last weekend suggest this political rot is spreading. If we give anti-American Portlandesque district attorneys a bit more time, the scoundrels may turn a blind eye to more violent crimes as well. The arsonists are practicing.
Chile provides an example of how this could go. In the early 1970s, under the Marxist president Salvador Allende, Chile’s criminal justice system began ignoring crimes committed by commie street thugs.
“There were repeated violations of property rights in the form of ‘takeovers’ (illegal occupations) of rural, urban, and industrial properties,” says an exhaustive 1991 report commissioned by a later president of Chile. “In most of these cases the owners received no help in recovering their ownership nor were the perpetrators punished.” Police “found themselves administratively blocked from acting during the ‘takeovers.’”
Seattle’s small businesses who sued the city over the CHAZ/CHOP takeover know how this works. Democrat elites encouraged pinkos, rapists, and various malcontents to found their People’s Republic, at least until the rabble showed up at the mayor’s home. Then the malodorous “autonomous zone” got broken up and, one hopes, thoroughly hosed down.
The report on Chile’s troubles, known as the Rettig Report, says normal Chileans realized the Marxist government “was not protecting their rights and that when these rights were violated they could not find support in the police, the judiciary, the General Comptroller’s Office, and so forth.” As a result, “they concluded that the only defense was self-defense.”
Violence increased. There were assaults, kidnappings, and worse. “The murder of a MIR student by a Communist student on the campus of the University of Concepción was publicly declared to be a political problem rather than a criminal one and in fact no sanction was applied.” The commies expected to get away with their crimes.
Chilean journalists labored diligently to make things worse. They “went to incredible lengths to destroy the reputations of their adversaries.” Their “political enemies were being presented as contemptible” and “on a number of occasions there were open calls” for mass violence and murder.
Fortunately the U.S. is a more civilized place. We are fortunate not to have increasingly unhinged journalists spending their time threatening Trump supporters, labeling them “maggots,” and calling them “white supremacists.” If our media betters began to demonize half the country, there’s no telling how that could end.
Perhaps not. But I could come up with a suggestion or three easily enough, I think.
Be sure to read the rest of it. I went on from here to check around his joint a bit further, and it took no time at all to realize that the boy more than merited a spot in Ye Olde Blogrolle here. And so I have proceeded. Thanks for the head’s up there, NA, and keep up the good work.
Good site. Thanks for the link. I’m now doing a deep dive through his older posts…
Which will probably keep me reading for the next month or so. Damn you. 🙂
Much of what 2020 has been about still reminds me of the Reichstag fires and the machinations of the Nazis to take power in Germany in 1932-33.
Now granted, the street thugs are definitely more Commie in their bent and the leadership talks a good Commie game, but I just think much of it is “theater” in that they’ve demonized Nazis as “Right Wing” so their Propaganda has to be Commie in slant, but their actual actions are taken right out of the Brownshirt and Blackshirt playbooks of the Fascists.
Which would be in total sync with the idea that the Dems ALWAYS Project. Their thugs are named “Antifa” meaning Anti-Fascists, which of course means that they are really the Fascists they claim to be opposing.
National Socialists were socialists. Distinction without a difference.
I’ll be the first to agree with you on that SteveF. The two are a distinction without a difference.
I think THEY think they are Commies and so the people running them have to play along.
Still they are not anti-fascist, they are anti-capitalist, anti-American and anti-Freedom/Liberty.
