Moar “squatters rights”

Just another D卐M☭CRAT pogrom against the right to own property, that’s all it is or ever was.

The property takeovers are all over the country in the nation’s woke cities. The stories are legion.

“The homeowner wouldn’t talk with us on camera for fear of retaliation from those living on the property. When he asked them to leave they beat him up sending him to the hospital,” a Portland, Ore., TV reporter explained in 2022 after squatters took over a man’s home while he was away. “He hasn’t been back since but still pays $1,500 a month for the mortgage.”

A Portland man complained that he left town to take care of his ailing mother only to discover someone had squatted in his apartment and turned it into a drug den.

A New York woman attempted to get the squatters out of her childhood home, but she was arrested for unlawful eviction because in that state squatters seem to have more rights than she does. Now she believes the Queens authorities will not act before 30 days is up and that means the squatters will be considered official tenants. The frightened neighbors say they believe the squatters started renovating the home. The owner believes the squatters will succeed in “stealing my home.”

In Atlanta, a man trying to build affordable housing on a nine-acre lot has 30 squatters on his property. He allowed four people to live on it and take care of it while he was away, but when he came back from California, he found dozens of squatters on his property, many of them Antifa holdovers from the “Stop Cop City” protests. Now, the homeowner can’t evict them because COVID-era moratorium on evictions is still in effect.

A Seattle area man is attempting to get rid of a man known as a “serial squatter” out of his $2 million property and is attempting to shame him out. He hopes the tactic works before he has to spend more time and thousands more dollars on court costs and lawyers. The squatter owes him tens of thousands of dollars in back rent.

You’ve undoubtedly seen this guy, one of Joe Biden’s invading army of illegal aliens, who’s now encouraging squatting by telling la gente to invade houses and take them over. “We can invade a house in the U.S. What do you think of this new law?”

When did all of this start?

The left has been mining this “occupy” vein for quite some time. The idea behind it is that those mean old white colonists took other peoples’ property and exploited it, so now a new set of white colonists are taking over people’s private property because they’re more noble. The upshot is that they envy someone else’s property but are too lazy to work and buy it for themselves, so they just take it. This is supposedly striking a blow against gentrification. Others call it stealing.

The proof of concept is found in Occupy and “Occupation Zone” extortion scams.

Occupy, the left’s recruitment program for future Antifa/anarchist actions, popularized the takeover of other people’s property.

Occupy Wall Street in 2011 drew leftist activists from all over the globe to pitch tents and learn at the feet of Lisa Fithian how to organize, monkey wrench, destroy, and frame a narrative. Not to be outdone, Portland activists mirrored the movement, took over two downtown Portland parks, and presided over a disgusting campsite filled with overflowing toilets, drug dealers, anti-Semitic activists, and local union paymasters “supporting” the event. The city and the mayor allowed them to take over the parks, and at least one city council member joined them in protest marches. Got to stick it to the 1%, you know.

From this Portland organization came a subgroup whose objective was to “occupy” peoples’ homes that they felt were ripe for the taking.

Eventually, they began taking over parts of the city and calling them occupation zones.

Proving yet again something I’ve contended for many, many years: Give Leftists an inch, and they’ll eventually take everything you have (now the latest addition to Mike’s Iron Laws). In the above context, quite literally so. Leftism isn’t merely a competing ideology or a legitimate system of political beliefs and values in opposition to conservatism. It is actually a cancer on the body politic, always 100 percent fatal to any healthy polity, thus must be not “tolerated” or “defeated” but utterly destroyed.

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
