"Most of the speakers talked about justice peacefully. But near the end of the rally, one man introduced as 'our president' strayed from the message by saying, 'If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.'"

You dont want this to go on, because this really is a slippery slope.
A potential avalanche situation, and the conditions are perfect.

And only one side can stop it - the left, the Democrats, the Mayors and DA's, the MSM and their shadowy owners.

Or it is by now inevitable. I fear it is just so; nobody will do anything, or can do anything.

The trouble here, unlike other cases in your history, is that in the past the political murders were directed at official targets, offices, officials, police, or failing that symbols of the power such as banks, or just random persons. The state does not need to do tit-for-tat, unless it completely undisciplined.

But now you have a conflict of peoples, essentially a gang-ethnic conflict for all that the significant participants are all white. You have white Bloods and Crips, and millions of each.

Ironically, the “peaceful” element you mention, with its 100% fraudulent message about police targeting blacks, is responsible for the deaths of literally thousands of black people since Ferguson. That is in addition to the senseless hatred and divisiveness it has sparked in society. The BLM message is, by far, more evil and damaging than the riots and looting. It’s not even close

He strays from the message the press and Dem politicians are trying to push about these riots. But not the message of the protesters.

A Trump supporter was shot and killed in Portland last night because he was identified as a "Trumper." The mob then celebrated.

Temujin said...

When the guy they call the 'president' starts worrying out loud about the number of Black Americans killed by black Americans, I'll take him seriously. I know- this white guy is not supposed to bring that up. It's a red herring. Sure. Keep fooling yourselves.
When he's up there parading and threatening others lives because a guy who had an arrest warrant out for sexual assault and stealing a car had come back to scene of his crime for more, then had the police called on him by the Black woman he had assaulted, then refused to comply with police as they tried to peacefully take him in, then resisted as they had to raise the level of security by tasering him, then continued to fight, as the police just tried to contain him, then walked away to the other side of the car with a knife in his hand, then reached into his car....

Would this have been more 'acceptable' if the policeman had shot him 1 time? 3 times? I get that 7 seems crazy, but I was not there. MY life was not on the line. I don't know what I would have done. And neither does anyone else writing or talking about this.

If this is the island this 'president' wants to take a stand on this, instead of standing up for the 5 dead and 14 wounded just in the City of Chicago so far this weekend then he's not representing anyone- especially Black Americans. He's part of the problem.

This obviously doesn't include the guy killed last night, or others.

Jessica Doty Whitaker

Black Lives Matter supporters reportedly shot 24-year-old Jessica Doty Whitaker, the mother of a 3-year-old boy, on July 5 in Indianapolis. Whitaker’s father confirmed to The Daily Wire that when the Black Lives Matter activists confronted Whitaker’s group, shouting, “Black Lives Matter!” Whitaker had responded, “All lives matter!”

While the two groups split up, the Black Lives Matter activists reportedly waited for Whitaker’s group to return and later ambushed them, shooting Whitaker. Local news reports do not mention the Black Lives Matter connection in their coverage of the shooting.

ConradBibby said...

There definitely aren't two separate groups, the "peaceful protesters" and the "rioters." There's one group, and within it are a range of personalities, some too fearful or naturally reticent to act out violently, some who have no reservations at all about brutally assaulting innocent people, setting fire to a business, or otherwise taking part in violence. But even the people who AREN'T personally throwing a hubcap at a police officer's head are still a part of a group that engages in this kind of conduct. At a bare minimum, they tacitly support the violence by knowingly coming out and providing safety-in-numbers cover for the psychopaths who are doing the overt, terroristic rioting.

Matt Sablan said...

"If law enforcement is not permitted to preserve the peace, armed citizens will step up. This is not complicated or surprising."

-- The police don't just protect the citizenry from the criminals, but the criminals from the people. Remember, if the sheriff arrests you first, you have a decent shot of not hanging for horse thieving. If the citizens found you first, well.

Once the people have to start dispensing justice, and they don't trust the police or courts to do it, well, the ability to just lock criminals away is gone. So, that leaves them with vanishingly few options short of "shoot the bastards."

You don't want rioters to get shot? Let the police deal with riots like they're riots, not like they're a two-year old throwing a tantrum that will tire himself out.

While she was speaking, she described the events of Thursday night after leaving the White House, where a mob had descended
She described being attacked, spit on, and having to take her heels off to defend herself from the out of control mob
The mob descended on Alice and she was in tears and afraid as they attacked her the same way they attacked Rand Paul
In the clubhouse room listening to Alice were Gayle King, MC Hammer, Van Jones and others

What was their reaction?

They told Alice to never repeat the story
I was told Van Jones specifically told Alice not to repeat her story
The left wing coastal elites don't care that Alice was spit on and attacked

They're afraid people finding out the left wing mob attacked her will hurt Biden"

There is an old saying, "Give Peace a Chance." It is used by idealist hippie assholes to stop any useful action from being taken to correct what they have damaged.

I'd suggest we modify it to, "Give Police a Chance" and insist that police and the justice system do their jobs of restoring public order, before people like AllenS do so in a way that will be a success, but which people like AllenS should not be forced into performing.

DanTheMan said...

>>After observing your side poke out a couple of hundred eyes

My side??? You think I support these adult babies committing arson, looting, and basically having temper tantrum? Now these savages are murdering people for wearing the wrong hat, and then celebrating that murder!
My point is that the way to deal with murderers is not for otherwise law abiding folks to become murderers, too.

I would love to hear Wheeler's answers to two questions:
1) How long are you going to allow these riots to continue?
2) What is your plan to stop the riots?

I suspect if he told the truth, the answers would be:
1) As long as they want to.
2) Our plan is to wait until they get tired of rioting and go home.

The riots won't stop until someone makes them stop. The D's in Portland and Oregon are waiting for Trump to federalize the Oregon NG and put down the riot, and then flood the world with videos of "peaceful protesters" getting beaten or shot while resisting arrest.
It's a trap. Trump won't take the "Kent State" bait.

And, of course, if Biden wins, Portland will get billions in federal aid (read:taxes paid by working people) to "rebuild". In other words, they will be rewarded for letting their city burn.

Gk1 said...

Isn't this the same scam the PLO and Hezbollah use that they should be treated as a "political movement" and that sometimes there are violent members in their midst, but it does not define their "generally peaceful" movements? They aren't fooling anyone.

AllenS said...

There needs to be an understanding on why these people feel a need to riot. They are building up their "street cred". Even if arrested, they know they will do very little jail time. The penalty/fine will not be significant enough to deter them.

Physically being injured is effective in these types of circumstances, when used as an attitude adjustment.

DanTheMan said...

>>Forget about the police and the court system...You have to kill. That my friends and enemies, are where we are at.

That may be where YOU are; ready to go to Portland and start killing rioters. VERY FEW others are there yet.
Thank God.

Now, if they come after you in your neighborhood or at your business, or try to drag you out of your car, that's completely different.

POTUS doesn't run Chicago, the federal government doesn't run the schools in Chicago, the federal government has, in fact, pretty much zip diddly to do with what goes on in CHicago.

Chicago has been a one party run town- Democrat run- since 1932. And Illinois itself? From wikipedia: Unique among the states is the notable fact that four of Illinois' seven governors between 1961 and 2009 were imprisoned for various forms of corruption while in office. All 4 have been Democrats- you have to search that.

Illinois voters know which party has been in charge for their whole lives. And keep voting for them. What do you suggest the federal government's responsibility is? The Constitution says the federal government guarantees a republican form of government to each state. Doesn't guarantee the state and people will use it responsibly.

Tit for tat and escalate didn't end up well for the left in the Spanish Civil War. The right-wing Falange killed a leftist officer of the Republican Assault Guards, Lieutenant José del Castillo. In revenge- and in escalation- a group of leftist policemen kidnapped and killed José Calvo Sotelo, the leader of the right wing in Parliament. While his kidnappers and killer were identified, the Republican (left) government didn't arrest anyone.

The government's refusal to arrest Calvo Sotelo's killer convinced many on the right that there was no possibility of having rule of law under the Republican (left) government. The military began its coup a week later.

In retaliation for the military coup, the left killed thousands of Roman Catholic priests and nuns during the summer of 1936.

If some wonder why the right was so savage during and after the war, the above may provide some context.

@Dan, but historically the necessary condition for the formation of committees of vigilance has been that the law can neither be relied upon to protect honest citizens, nor can it be relied upon to dispense justice in the event of criminals being apprehended. The two choices for the states of Oregon and Washington, and the cities of Seattle and Portland, is for the police to do their proper jobs or for armed citizens to shoot to kill. And I see little evidence that the former is going to happen. Do you?

“Strayed from the message”? I think not. The message is clear and only slightly modulated with the breaking of every window, every fire, every theft, every beating and every David Dorn.

Jamie said...

I wish I could muster up my faith right now - I feel the need for effective prayer. The normals need to hold firm and not go vigilante. We need -despite not being a "movement" and having no leader or group of leaders organizing us - to stay as disciplined as MLK Jr's civil rights organization members did, even when we're attacked (clear self-defense only - which means never going anywhere alone and having video running at all times, I suppose). Because if we start acting lawless (and vigilantism is "acting lawless" even when a reasonable person could see it as justified), Biden wins, and we have the horrors of these past months to look forward to every time some left-sanctioned group decides it has a grievance.

But if we start organizing in any way, so as to aid in our own self-discipline, Biden wins, because any such organization will be touted as evidence of the formation of fascist, undoubtedly white supremacist militias, even if they never fire a shot.

The only way Trump wins that I can see is if every person who either supports Trump or - without supporting Trump - believes that property rights, rule of law, and societal good order are worth preserving acts with perfect and individual self-discipline.

The tightrope we are on is scary as hell.

Professor Althouse: Why you don't vote for Biden

If Biden is President, his AG will be someone like Andrew Wissemann, and his DoJ will bring criminal and civil actions against police officers and police departments that try to shut riots down

So instead of having riots limited to cities where the politicians love the rioters more than they love the people, you will have constant riots in every sign city and town in the country

Because no matter what they get, the rioters will always want more. And having been rewarded for rioting once (the defeat of Trump), they will keep on doing the tactic that works

Want your house burned down? Want the businesses you shop at destroyed? Then vote for Biden

The problem is - and I'm talking specifically about Olympia, WA - is they've taken over certain parts of the town where it's no longer safe to go. Common areas. Along the lake. Downtown. And from time to time (like yesterday) they'll wreak havoc on the West Side and storm the mall.

I pay taxes to use these spaces. I pay taxes for public safety. Yet, the police and the powers that be won't do a damn thing about it. And we're going on three months now.

Antifa rioted freely in Berkeley. Then the Proud Boys showed up and beat them up one night. After that, the Berkeley police were allowed to shut down Antifa

Not all voters are idiots. When politicians show that they CAN shut down the riots, that also shows that they CHOSE to let them go before.

People who don't want their own houses burned down will vote Republican, in there self defense

>>Dan the man and Jamie, if the government officials and police won’t protect you, with your attitude towards responding to these animals, prepare to die.

You completely misunderstand me.
I will not be a victim of these morons. If they come after me and my family, I am an NRA member, a supporter of our 2nd amendment rights, an rather well armed.

I agree with you completely that the police in Portland have abandoned their downtown and the people that live there to the mob. Those who live there have every right to defend themselves, up to and including deadly force if their lives are in danger.

What I don't support is Allen's idea that it's time for us to declare war and go to Portland and start murdering rioters.

        Until after the election.  Surprised I have to point that out.

"My point is that the way to deal with murderers is not for otherwise law abiding folks to become murderers, too."

I don't think anyone prefers that path, but we've gone a very long way down it already. The mayors and governors of the localities in question have attempted to use this to their own political ends, and the beast is out of their control. Most of them show no genuine desire as yet to regain that control, and I doubt they can.

I think the consensus on the right (so far) is "we'll handle you if you come to us", but more and more that is changing to "well, I will travel a certain distance to meet you halfway, since you insist".

There is no point in reasoning with the hard knot of sociopaths that comprise Antifa/blm's fighting wing, or even to expect them to eventually fade back to their orc caves. Mad dogs are going to roam, and bite, until they're put down, like the foam-mouthed mutt Atticus Finch dropped in To Kill a Mocking Bird. Recall that pathetic social media post made by the animal who kicked the white kid's head in Portland: "Looking at a murder charge coz I fought a racist. You can look it up on Twitter."

Coz I fought a racist. No, laddie, you and your fellow goblins kidnapped an American citizen from his vehicle because he was white and then nearly beat and kicked him to death, because he was white. And you committed these sundry felonies while other orcs gleefully filmed you in action. In the United States of America. In 2020. And this is but one meager thread to a demonic tapestry now on display in Portland, Seattle, Sacramento, Minneapolis, Kenosha, Chicago, Louisville, D.C., etc. and et. al.

THIS is the modern American Democrat party.
