From ~1970:

"The Unheavenly City’s most infamous chapter is “Rioting Mainly for Fun and Profit.” Fresh off televised riots in Watts, Detroit, and Newark, Banfield argued that it was “naive to think that efforts to end racial injustice and to eliminate poverty, slums, and unemployment will have an appreciable effect upon the amount of rioting that will be done in the next decade or two.”"

Recipe for disaster: Ask yourself. Where does all this take place?

• Three Decades of nothing but identity politics
• Calling millions of people racist that aren’t racists
• Reinforcing that theme in public schools and universities
• Exploiting undocumented immigrants through temp agencies to save money on health insurance.
• Burying two generations in college debt, and then importing H1B1 workers to take the jobs
• Incarcerating and generation of African-American men for non-violent drug offenses
• Diminishing low minority unemployment for the last 2 years to push identity politics
• Destroying minority families in an attempt to replace it’s autonomy with the State.
• Portraying every father on TV like they’re all detached Homer Simpsons
• Burying real crime statistics
• Vilifying churches and diminishing their role in communities

Howard said...

It's such a surprise that riots would break out after police deploy tear gas and billy clubs. It's almost as if they want to use violence to turn protesters violent like it's some part of a plan to increase their budgets and their police state authority.

J. Farmer said...

It's almost as if diversity isn't our greatest strength. Who knew! And just wait until we have the demographics of Brazil. The elite, as usual, will remain ensconced behind gates and walls in their villas, compounds, penthouses, and private islands.

When Sheila Dixon was elected to the Baltimore City Council in the early 1990's, she famously waved her shoe in front of a group of white council members and declared, "You've been running things for the last 20 years. Now the shoe is on the other foot." And anyone who ever watched Homicide: Life on the Street or The Wire knows how well that worked out for Baltimore.

New America is going to be great.

Phil 314 said...

Well when I visited Madison a couple of years ago I felt downtown was “vibrant”. Apparently it still is.

Temujin said...

Black rage these days looks surprisingly white liberal suburban. I hope these same people will come back to the parts of the cities they are destroying and help those business people and residents put their lives back together.

Or maybe they'll just graduate, take a corporate job, then one day call 911 because a black man asks them to put their dog on a leash.

2020 seems to be popping along with its own crazy weirdness. If it keeps it up, it may join 1968 as the all-time chaotic weird year (in my lifetime).

1968:
— 539,000 American troops in Vietnam (Jan)
— Surprise Tet offensive by Viet Cong causing US media to say war is “not winnable” (Jan)
— LBJ shocks nation by withdrawing from presidential race (Mar)
— Martin Luther King assassinated causing five days of race riots and burning throughout many cities (Apr)
— Robert Kennedy assassinated after winning California presidential primary (Jun)
— Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact forces invade Czechoslovakia to quell “Prague Spring” (Aug)
— Chicago Democratic Convention erupts in chaos as protesters/rioters fight with Mayor Daley’s police (Aug)
— “Hong Kong Flu” arrives in the US: will kill 100K (Oct)
— Nixon elected president (Nov)
— Apollo 8 circles the moon on Christmas Eve as astronaut Frank Borman reads from the book of Genesis (Dec)

This is heartbreaking. How could these pink floyd protestors be so uncivilized! And despite it all, I really loved his music. I don't know where all this anger is coming from, because I'm on their side too. No one should be able to kill pink floyd and get away with it!

No justice, no peace! Remember pink floyd!

Graffiti is a unbelievably difficult to remove, especially from paint. You can't sand blast it off. The sand will destroy the brick. Muriatic acid kind of works.

Anyways, the graffiti people need to get their asses beat. We're not Jewish, but we had anti-Semitic tenants spray paint swastikas on our property years ago. It was a serious ordeal removing this stuff. Our local police department did nothing, of course. "They're just kids." Because "kids" are men in their mid twenties. BUT the local building inspector came over the same day and told us we had to remove it ASAP, as in "right now."

It must be very rewarding to wake up and see what you get for paying those bills for your kids. Parents must be so proud.

Michael said...

Atlanta has had two nights of protest. In night one the police were praised for their restraint by the press. Protest became riot became loot fest and vandalism after the cops observed cop cars burned fifty feet in front of them. Restraint. Hundreds of businesses trashed and looted. From downtown to Buckhead stores were cleaned out. Zero arrests.
In night two zero tolerance policy was implemented, teargas and arrests. No looting. Minuscule vandalism.
Woke policing is ineffective.
Barely noted was the contrast between the entirely peaceful protest of mainly white people at the governor’s mansion, left spotless, with the predominately black gathering downtown, left trashed.

Francisco D said...

The kids just want to have fun.

Spiros said...

Not nearly enough. By not arresting the looters and arsonists, the police are opening the door to every species of lawlessness imaginable. What's next on looters' agenda? A couple dozen cops getting sniped. Maybe some shopkeepers getting lynched?

Mark said...

Regarding the riot around McPherson Square and Lafayette Park last night -- in that one location I saw live on TV many buildings smashed, at least one building set on fire, at least two vehicles set on fire, fireworks as big as bombs thrown at police and into crowds, multiple stores broken into and looted, and more destruction.

About elsewhere in the city, from the WP -
Around Farragut Square, City Center and Georgetown, they smashed the facades of businesses with rocks and baseball bats. At the entrance to The Oval Room, an upscale District restaurant that was attacked, a message was spray-painted in red:
The rich aren’t safe anymore!
In Georgetown and City Center, police deployed to protect businesses from looters. Connecticut Avenue near Farragut Square was littered with shattered glass and burned-out garbage cans. Outdoor tables for dining were overturned and vandalized. . . .
Authorities said bricks, fireworks and water bottles were thrown at officers, and some demonstrators sprayed mace. At least one demonstrator was able to grab a riot shield from Secret Service officers. Others tore bricks from the street and broke them into smaller pieces. . . .
There was no sign Saturday that supporters of the president had launched any counter-protests in the District.

Carol said...

There are always those young white guys who love anarchy. There seems to be an intellectual strain afoot that wants a return to anarchy, basically back to the hunter-gatherer life. The book Against the Grain promotes this. Also paleo - grains and farming are the worst thing that ever happened to us! Screw government, screw cities, down with civilization!

There are always enthusiastic camp followers but I really don't think women and children do as well as men in anarchy. We have a lot to lose. So I know my side.

I wonder if this is all a roundabout rejection of Woman and all her pomps.

Michael K said...

No, that was Clinton's BATF, Howard. Wrong century, as usual.

Gusty Winds said...

Last month when protesters arrived in Madison to counter the Safer at Home extension, they were vilified, and Madison felt "invaded". I don't think they broke anything.

Now, Madison and cities around the nation really are being invaded. I know this is horrible but I'm having a hard time sympathizing for these dark blue communities. I feel horrible for the individual business owners.

Maybe it's better to say I'm not shocked. Didn't our Democrat controlled cities bring this on themselves? I'm sorry, but Waukesha County has NOTHING to do with what happened in Madison and Milwaukee last night.

Michael K said...

As one who participated in every riot, disturbance,MLK march, Frank Collins ANP march, in Chicago from January 1966 to April 1999 that the Madison disturbance ain't nothing. But to defend Madison the minority population is not large enough to support a decent riotand the millennial children have tiny cajones.

Here is part of your answer -
https://twitter.com/laralogan/status/1266820870967885824

If you watched the late night live TV coverage, it was clear across the nation that in addition to orchestration and coordination, a lot of the rioters/agitators were trained and following a script. Every city the pattern was the same.

And as I mentioned last night, a lot of these folks were young white women. And a lot of young white men. It was, in fact, mostly an exercise in white leftism.

Sydney said...

That seems to be true for photos from all the cities, even Detroit. Who are these protesters and who is organizing them? Is it all just violent virtue signalling?

Sebastian said...

"By not arresting the looters and arsonists, the police are opening the door to every species of lawlessness imaginable."

Leftist criticism of police brutality and more generally of pigs in blue has softened them up.

What's worse for officers and commanders--being criticized by law-abiding citizens for being weak or being taken to court by woke rioters and their lefty lawyers for unduly violent actions?

Progs have already changed the police calculus. For prog politicians too. Dem voters are the ultimate enablers.

Dr Weevil said...

Howard (8:41am):
It's not surprise at all that the police deploy tear gas and billy clubs after riots break out. Why do you pretend that it happened in the opposite order?

And why do so many on Twitter and elsewhere pretend that Trump or right-wingers or anyone else objects to "protests"? I mentioned on a previous thread that there was a protest in my small (24,000) town yesterday evening. A couple hundred mostly young people of various races and both genders marched down the street past the courthouse and police headquarters shouting "George Floyd! Say his name!". It seems to have been spontaneous: I didn't see any signs, even hand-made, much less professionally printed. They weren't gassed or clubbed or even booed or shouted at, because they didn't loot any stores or set any fires or even block traffic or harass bystanders. The police weren't even there. Absolutely no one objects to protests like that, though millions don't give a damn about them one way or another. It's the burning and the looting and the beating and the shooting that pisses off a large majority of Americans, and excites lefties, looters, liars, and other losers.

GatorNavy said...

90% of the looters and people who destroyed property in Madison are upper middle class white kids. They have no fear of arrest because their parents have access to very good defense lawyers. I’m quite sure that I, my wife and Ann all know one or more of these kids or their parents.

The inevitable backlash that is coming will once again screw over people of color. And those nice white kids will suffer zero consequences.

Jersey Fled said...

Strange that all of this rioting seems to be happening in Democrat run cities with minority police captains.

What are they doing wrong?

Also, I'm still mulling the other thread where Evans blames "us" for the problem. And then rereading Trump's statement where he rightly puts the blame on the actual villains - the police officer who has since been charged with murder, and the rioters.

Very clear and important distinction there.

J. Farmer said...

@Carol:

I wonder if this is all a roundabout rejection of Woman and all her pomps.

I agree with you about the impulse. There have been agrarian back-to-land movements throughout history. But I see it more as a rejection of the depersonalization of the city than a rejection of women. People are often seeking greater autonomy in their lives, more self-sufficiency, and a more rooted sense of community.

The city is the birthplace of a substantial division of labor, social stratification, the state, and the empire. Ancient empires had their capital. The industrial empires had their metropolis. The post-industrial empires have their megalopolis.

I have been assured by my Trump-hating relatives that this is all the work of white supremacists who are rioting over the death of a black man.

The American left has gone completely nuts.

William said...

Is this the new normal? If anywhere in America, a police officer does something reprehensible or criminal, everywhere in America people are allowed--encouraged even--to express anger and disdain for their local police. Does breaking windows and throwing rocks at police cars cause police officers to become gentler, kinder beings in their interactions with the public?

Big Mike said...

Amending my comment at 8:33, I didn't realize at first that it's a video clip. Running the whole clip, I count five people that I'm certain are black and a few more that might be light-skinned African-Americans. The rest, on the order of a hundred or so individuals, are clearly white.

This. It's amazing how many people in the Washington, DC metro areas that have government jobs, and very good jobs at that, are from other countries. These are not H1B1 workers, but it's more or less the same point: they are not native Americans.

Inga said...

There were people tweeting from Madison last night that said the same masked white man with a hammer was going to storefronts and breaking the glass windows. Sounds similar as to what was seen happening in Minneapolis. Who are these people? Once the crowd is sufficiently instigated, all hell breaks loose. There are instigators and agents provocateurs in those crowds of legit protestors. I’m not excusing those protestors who may have joined the melee of looting. Of course the right wing won’t even try to understand or believe this is happening.

These instigators have been seen at many of the riots that happened across the country.

Birkel said...

Better solution:
Use force to stop riots in progress. Bean bags, pepper balls, water cannons, and other non-lethal methods should be deployed. That should be followed by zip ties. And then prosecution for any crimes, especially federal offenses.

Roll up the street-level perps and find one who will flip on the conspiracy.

This is astroturfed interstate rioting using interstate communication methods. Federal crimes up and down the line.

Skookum John said...

@Carol: I really don't think women and children do as well as men in anarchy. We have a lot to lose.

True. But the kind of weedy soy-boys who join Antifa also have more to lose than they realize. Anarchists dream of this idyllic hunter-gatherer lifestyle, only with iPhones and hip coffee bars. But in a state of true anarchy they would almost all be either dead or enslaved (if male or a woman over 40), or a concubine in a warlord’s harem (if a young female.)

The failure of the ChiCom/WHO hyped flu lefty/dem dictatorial shutdowns to achieve the desired lefty political result along with the full exposure of the russia collusion hoax and frame up of Flynn, with lots more to come, forced the dems to take a hard look at their candidate (rapey gropey Biden) and the left panicked and launched these nationwide riots to create chaos to reinvigorate their earlier lies against Trump.

The left is doing all of this simply because they haven't been able to defeat or execute a coup against Trump.

There are instigators and agitators that have embedded themselves in these protests. I agree there may be straight up anarchists there, but they are not strictly on the left. There are quasi right wing agitators like the Boogaloo Bois types and others of that sort. This situation can’t be easily blamed on either totally left or right, there are an odd mix of ideologies in these groups of anti government groups.

It was the old normal, too. What makes it new is that it's national, and that hasn't happened for about 50 years. I wouldn't say that will be the future normal. It's because so many people are out of work and at home. Even some of the agitators may have had day jobs that they aren't doing lately. When the country gets back to work things will get back to something like the old normal, which could be bad enough if it was your city.

1. These riots are only happening in democrat cities with democrat political in control of the local police force and DA offices.

2. People are rarely being arrested.

3. The ones that are arrested are almost never prosecuted.

4. The Governor's daughter is helping organize the riots.

5. The Democrat media takes turns saying the glorious "mostly peaceful" protesters are honoring George Floyd's memory and calling them White Supremacist Agitators.

These people are all on the same team.

Team Democratic.

"We are witnessing glimmers of the full insurrection the far-left has been working toward for decades. The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was merely a pre-text for radicals to push their ambitious insurgency. "

...
"Antifa, the extreme anarchist-communist movement, has rioting down to an art. The first broken window is the blood in the water for looters to move in. When the looting is done, those carrying flammable chemicals start fires to finish the job. Footage recorded in Minneapolis and other cities show militants dressed in black bloc— the antifa uniform — wielding weapons like hammers or sticks to smash windows. You see their graffiti daubed on smashed up buildings: FTP means Fuck the Police; ACAB stands for All Cops Are Bastards; 1312 is the numerical code for ACAB. "

...
"Last night, rioters reached the gates of the White House, possibly the most secure location on Earth. There, they chipped away at the barriers piece-by-piece while law enforcement struggled to respond. One Secret Service officer reportedly had a brick thrown at his head. Footage recorded at the scene showed him blood-soaked. Police were eventually able to repel masked rioters by using pepper spray and tear gas. That worked, for now. "

Loser Kathy Griffith is thrilled at the idea of someone leftwing nut bag getting to Trump.

Say the name "Patrick Underwood" too. He was the 53-year-old security guard shot and killed while guarding the Federal Building in Oakland in a drive-by shooting during protests May 29. His colleague was wounded, but survived. Like George Floyd, he was black.

Oh look. At 8:41 Howard answers the age-old riddle of which came first, the chicken or the egg.

Brilliant, Howie. Thanks so much.

The group that damaged the Madison Art Museum was primarily Black. There's video online if anyone wants to look for it.

Yesterday:
Rioters are expressing righteous anger and are searching for justice.
Today:
Rioters are white supremacists and Russian agents
Tomorrow:
Rioters are being driven to extremes by global warming
Day after tomorrow:
Trump is solely responsible for all the death and destruction caused by rioters


Flat-earther's stand in awe of the modern left's ability to believe anything.


Drago said...

Leftists 72 hours ago: These protests are righteous and the destruction is a result of the anger of the People and needs to be allowed to happen so democrat governors tell your police and national guard to pull back!!

Leftists 48 hours ago: Oh, this doesn't look too good....hmmmm..These protests are the result of Russians and White Supremacists exercising mind control over millions of leftists across the nation!

Leftists 24 hours ago: Oh, no one is really buying that moronic excuse...hmmmmm...these protests are ONLY happening because the police fired tear gas at the People who were righteously protesting although being led by russians and white supremacists at Trump's urging!!!.....

....which is why lefties everywhere are bailing these racist russian white supremacist agitators out of jail......

hmmmmm.........

If you are a normal person who sees this and thinks to themselves, how dumb would one have to be to buy all this transparent nonsense, I give you the Althouse lefty/dems.

Jim at said...

Sure. Clean up the mess your fellow leftists made ... so they can come right back and do it again tonight. Brilliant.

hombre said...

Inga: “Of course the right wing won’t even try to understand or believe this is happening.”

Sure we understand and believe, Inga. We look at these things through the lens of history, including recent history, because we know the world didn’t begin with George Floyd’s death and we know who riots and why. And it ain’t white supremacists and drug cartels.

minnesota farm guy said...

President Trump just announced that AntiFa will be tagged as a terrorist group. I had wondered about this earlier this morning and I am happy to see it done. How different is AntiFa from the Bader Meinhof group that terrorized Europe for a number of years? They clearly are well organized, someone is funding them and it is only a matter of time before they start planting bombs. There were millions of dollars in property damage in MPLS and those who did it came prepared. Give Trump credit once again for not vacillating. Round 'em all up and jail 'em.

Jim at said...

I’m not excusing those protestors who may have joined the melee of looting.

No. You're too busy blaming conservatives for what your fellow, leftist thugs are doing.

You built this, Inga. Own it. All of it.

minnesota farm guy said...

What do you think this will do for gun sales? The liberals couldn't buy them fast enough during the lockdown. I'll bet they will really be flocking to their nearest gun shop now. Once again they will be shocked to learn that buying any weapon involves paperwork, background checks and a pistol needs a permit from the sheriff just to purchase in MN.

minnesota farm guy said...

Inga's narrative that it is the far right blame is taking something of a beating. The consensus among all parties seems to be that ANTIFA and the local criminal elements are to be blamed for the destruction at these "protests".

When the riots start, I am hoping a few "innocent" Leftist Collectivists get what they've said they want.

All those DNC types bailing out ANTIFA better lawyer up now.

Inga,

Oh, we see it, but the difference between you and us is that we also understand the political persuasion of these people. You are literally the dumbest and most insipid commenter I have ever come across.


I really do wonder sometimes if Inga is a bot. It is hard to sound dumber.

FullMoon said...

President Trump just announced that AntiFa will be tagged as a terrorist group.

Next up, Trump behind riots in order to vilify heroic antifa..

FullMoon said...

Leftists attacks going to happen after Trump rallies now, just like 2016

The anarchists were right in that instance.

I am right, therefore I riot -- René Descartes

D.D. Driver said...

Can we also finally lay to rest the canard that American leftists really just want to more "like Denmark."

Matt said...

If only a black cop could have kneeled on Degenerate George...all this unpleasantness could have been avoided.

hstad said...

Inga: “Of course the right wing won’t even try to understand or believe this is happening.”
Sorry, same kind of political propoganda narrative as Minnesota's Governor and Mayor of Minneapolis - "White Supremacists" did it - despite the fact that 86% of arrests are local residents.

"Inga" because you're a dyed in the wool Liberal you believe in all of this as unplanned and unprovoked protests? LOL! Liberals - it is hard for them to admit their narratives are not accepted by the middle class - but they don't care. As a consequence, the unintended consequences are just necessary and deaths and injuries necessary 'cannon fodder' to win their cause. Sounds familiar - Mao and Khmer Rouge - Intellectuals flock to their cause.

I live in L.A. and after the Rodney King riots in '92, almost 60% of blacks condemned those riots. - Source: L.A.Times 5.6.92.

Drago said...

Russian Collusion Truther Inga: " There are quasi right wing agitators like the Boogaloo Bois types and others of that sort."

LOL

Names and video or you are lying.

Again.

BTW, just today good old corrupt Comey and Commie pro-muslim brotherhood Brennan texted disapproval for Trump and approval for the riots.

Gee, who could have seen that coming.....besides every breathing human I mean.

Its fun watching the moron lefties like Inga arguing across about 3 or 4 simultaneous and hilariously contradictory lefty/dem narrative/lies.

Drago said...

Recall how Soros groups funded Ferguson riots.

This is simply expanding the already existing violent lefty base.

Inga and her pals have a lot to answer for and I'm thinking that its quite possible the results of 1968 lefty activity on the 1968 elections and 2014 Ferguson activity on the 2016 elections might have a similar impact in Nov of 2020.

Drago said...

FullMoon: "Leftists attacks going to happen after Trump rallies now, just like 2016"

Yep.

And those individuals who were sent in to pretend to be Trump supporters were outed as leftists and remember how Inga denied til she was blue in the face that they were leftists?

As always, and I mean ALWAYS, Leftists always falsely accuse others of what they are actually doing.

Like the Bernie Bro who brought the swastika sign to Michigan and the media blamed it on Trump supporters.

Like how Inga always attacks western Christians when islamic supremacists murder innocents across the globe.

No different than Hillary's collusion with Russia thru FusionGPS and Steele and Biden's corruption in China and Ukraine.

The good news? It's pretty out in the open now though our resident idiots continue to pretend it isnt.

Inga said...

“You are literally the dumbest and most insipid commenter I have ever come across.”

Yancy Ward, the guy who said that there wouldn’t be more than 7,500 total people in the US who died of Covid 19. I’m very impressed with your calculations and self congratulatory pronouncements, Ha.

Drago said...

Inga: "I’m not excusing those protestors who may have joined the melee of looting."

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Everybody get that?

It's right wing white supremacists MAGA-hat wearing Jussie Smollett haters launching riots across the nation and here and there, maybe, just maybe, one or two lefties might have become a bit overexcited and joined in....a little bit.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, Inga is literally attempting to make that case.

She really must believe everyone here is as gullible as Howard and Dumb Lefty Mark.

Michael said...

The Atlanta police and Georgia Bureau of Investigation are saying Antifa was at work here. They are actually calling out Antifa.

Only idiot white bread midwesterners would fall for “white supremicists”

Drago said...

Here's a "nice" video of Inga's Brave and Heroic antifa storm troopers ganging up on an isolated woman and beating the snot out of her....in typically "heroic" and "courageous" lefty/democrat fashion:

https://twitter.com/AndySwan/status/1267081816873328640

The "good news" for lefties/dems is that the antifas, even after hearing the husband pleading for them to stop, refused to step away from their mission and calling in life.

Way to go Inga!

The only way this video could be MORE acceptable to our lefty/dems is if the antifa's started giving abortions on the spot and selling off the baby parts....(which, BTW, transcripts released just last week showed Planned Parenthood admitting...so no more lying about Inga like you did with Russia collusion)

Inga said...

There ARE instigators and agitators among the protestors, whether they be Antifa or whether they be Boogaloo Bois or some odd mix of the two, it will become clearer as time goes on. There are some protestors who then join the melee once the agitation has been ratcheted up to a certain level. It’s been seen happening at everyone of these protests.

Drago said...

Seriously, Inga must be so proud of her shock troop allies beating the s*** out of an old woman.

Congrats Inga.

Contra obambi, you DID build this.

Birkel said...

Trump is going to break the Democratics.
He's going to reflect the righteous anger of America.

Drago said...

BTW, Keith Ellison is a huuuuuge antifa supporter.

Bigly in fact.

Plus the MN Gov's daughter has been very helpful in providing tactical intel in real time about national guard deployments to her antifa allies.

So, naturally, Trump should probably be impeached over this or something.

MayBee said...

So Inga- are the black people who are being instigated into looting and starting fires just too stupid to realize they are doing it at the behest of white supremacists?

Black people need to be led by white people, even when it comes to looting. Strange white people come into town and work to get black people so shook they can't control themselves, and they start looting. This is the theory you espouse?

LOLOLOLOL

Stop. Lying.

They are your pals and allies.

Antifa every one. Every. Single. One. Soros funded, happy go lucky lefty commie/anarchist thugs.

Drago said...

Seriously, how big a body count and destruction number will it take for Inga to step up and disown her political allies and bedfellows?

Spoiler: There is no number big enough to make Inga stop her lying to protect her antifa allies.

Jersey Fled said...

For example, the so-called Boogaloo Bois — a group of armed anti-government extremists made visible by their Hawaiian shirts — have reportedly shown up to some of the protests.

Inga:

You've finally done it. You've doubled down on stupid. On what rational basis would anyone believe this?

bagoh20 said...

" There are some protesters who then join the melee once the agitation has been ratcheted up to a certain level. It’s been seen happening at everyone of these protests."

How many Trump supporters do think they got there?

Your allies riot, burn and steal for free stuff and the thrill of violence itself, while the people who peacefully protested and cleaned up afterward for the right to go back to work were called dangerous and selfish by Democrat "leaders". Nice set of values you got there.

bagoh20 said...



Actually one of the closest early estimates. Who else got within a 100K way back then? And we have to acknowledge that his estimate was before we knew that Democrat governors were going to willfully infect and kill thousands of the elderly. Nobody expected them to be that incompetent or evil.

bagoh20 said...

A lot of people are finally going to learn what's wrong with a 10 day waiting period for the government to let you defend yourself.

Michael K said...

The Inga bot and the Howard bot are back to mastermind Putin. I think they need ctl del reboot.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

If there are 100 protestors - 99 of whom are leftwing Antifa, one is a "rightwinger" -that means the 99 leftwing Antifa goons get a pass.

bagoh20 said...

Somehow we skipped right over the summer of love this time. We did have the summer of collusion, but nowhere near as much fun.

We need to capture and examine one of these Bugaloo Bois. I have a sense that they are as rare as Yetis and unicorns.

Of course, if these people did not exist, Inga and her fellow travelers would have to invent them.

It's from the well worn old script. As a child of the Sixties, I have seen this movie before.

Boogaloo boys are leftist fiction. Antifa is leftist reality. What whitewashing excuse will you use when they, Antifa are exposed? Tell us now and save yourself the effort later on.

Though it does appear that there's other sh*t going down in the Loop. With, you know, *real people* getting threatened, will anything change?
