"When darkness fell, the counterprotesters triggered more mayhem as they harassed Trump’s advocates, stealing red hats and flags and lighting them on fire."

"Scuffles continued into the night as the provocateurs overturned the tables of vendors who had been selling pro-Trump gear and set off dozens of fireworks, prompting police to pepper-spray them. At 8 p.m., violence broke out five blocks east of the White House between the president’s supporters, who wielded batons, and his black-clad detractors, many of whom had participated in racial justice rallies throughout the summer. As the groups approached the same intersection, they charged each other, brawling for several minutes before police arrived and cleared the area.... [A]lmost none of [Trump's] backers wore masks. Among their ranks were white nationalists, conspiracy theorists and far-right activists carrying signs demanding action that was already being taken: 'Count the legal votes.' Trump had thrilled them when his motorcade appeared on Pennsylvania Avenue shortly after 10 a.m., prompting fans to scramble to the side of Freedom Plaza to catch a glimpse.... 'Trump, pack your [shit]! You’re illegitimate!' [counterprotesters] yelled into their megaphone... A family of four on Capital Bikeshare bikes — the father with an American flag tied around his neck like a cape — were cut off by a line of counterprotesters as they tried to leave a tense scene outside the Supreme Court about 1 p.m. 'Get out of our city!' a young woman in black yelled. 'You lost, losers!' shouted a man. The father and his teenage son began to chant 'U.S.A.!' and raised their fists as police officers surrounded the family and pushed them out of the crowd."

I imagine Leftists will compare this to Jesus rousting the money-changers from the Temple.

As to the rest of it, the narrative must be upheld. To call this a news report is beyond laughable.

I'd love to hear what Joe and President-in-waiting Kamala have to say about this. Except no one will ever ask them.

Let the healing begin.

Wow, I've known for decades that our brave journalists were all impartial, unbiased truth-tellers.

I'm interested in the march yesterday. WAPO is going to give its subscribers read meat, not facts.

"Among their ranks were white nationalists..."

Remember the discussion back during the Portland riots as to why the press was so uninterested in interviewing any of the rioters to understand who they were and what they stood for? Yet they know that yesterday's crowd included "white nationalists". What? They suddenly got interested as started interviewing the pro-Trump crowd and a bunch of them replied "Yeah - were a big group of white nationalists!". More projection on the part of the press, or perhaps the counterprotesters who informed the press of their own biased thoughts.

Imagine if "counter protesters" had showed up and started fights at all the women's marches?
It doesn't happen.

Imagine if "counter protesters" had showed up at the street parties for Biden last weekend.

What would the narrative from the press be then?

This is how you know the article is propaganda rather than a straight news report.

A flash of violent confrontation does not necessarily portend a civil war. I suspect all this will be over shortly after Thanksgiving.

This actually echos the thing that made me start pulling for Trump.

In 2016, the media glommed on to a formula it had used in the prior elections. The GOP crowds were just so angry, Trump crowds were so very . So in Chicago, riots broke out with nameless protesters attacking people going to the Trump rallies.
And the narrative was: the people brought this on themselves. Republican candidates still in the race like Marco Rubio actually denounced Trump, thinking this would give them an advantage. Rather than defending their possible voters, they played into the press's narrative.

And now we have this. One side protests and attacks cities and people at will and constantly. They are free from pandemic restrictions, criticism, and even get compared to D-Day soldiers.
The other side gets "counter protesters", and has bad thinkers among them.

Well, where does this go? Because future GOP candidates, this is what they'll do to your supporters, too.

This story doesn't sound right. All the ones this year so far, when darkness fell, some of the protestors starting breaking and burning and stealing things. This time, it sounds like the counter-protestors did that.
What could the difference be?

My guess is that when all the legal challenges are done Trump will concede, but will openly call the election tainted and spend the next four years running for reelection while rallying his supporters to vote in Trumpian candidates in state and local races.

Gusty Winds said...

The march went exactly as expected. No MAGA looting, broken windows...arson. Trump called the truth in a tweet last night. He said ANTIFA were cowards for waiting util daytime crowds had thinned, and then got violent. Media lies about MAGA crowd, and covers for ANTIFA / BLM. “Provocateurs” (swashbuckling provocateurs???). Give me a break. The script now writes itself. Especially at the Wash Post and NYTs.

MeMySelf said...

From the videos I have seen of the aftermath of the protest the DC police did nothing to help the Trump supporter and only intervened after the violence was over or if a Biden voter was about to get the crap kicked out of them.

Yes, Its going to be fun watching the dnc/media,propaganda guild, go after the next Republican Candidate in 6 years. It's impossible that the next candidate to be worse than the President, and GWB has been rehabilitated to near political savant, by what standard can they tear down any candidate? Yes they will do it anyway, proudly exercising their right to keep and execise their double standards, but it will still be fun.

I just read on Instapundit how the Lincoln Project doxed and threatened some of Trump's election attorneys who signed the PA complaint.

I don't know - bullies have got to bully no matter what. Scary.

Agree with rhhardin, that “reporting” is so lame that it must be by design. Why would WaPo disgrace itself with coverage that wouldn’t survive editorial review by a junior high school paper, if not to distract us from something bigger and more serious? Like the fact that thousands of MAGA voters and their families took themselves to the capital to assemble peaceably and demand an accounting from their government for ongoing electoral fraud? Like the possibility that future demonstrations, if attacked like this one, may not be as peaceable?

Here's what Washington Pravada didn't report:

But as the dark fell, it got a lot crazier with Antifa going after the Trump supporters as they were leaving and no police in sight.

Mobs were targeting individuals or elderly as they left the larger group of Trump supporters to go home.

This older man was knocked out cold by a person carrying a Refuse Fascism sign. Lot of irony there as the person attacks someone in the street, trying to suppress their political views, the very essence of “fascism.” As he falls his phone falls to the street. A woman kicks him in the head and then another woman with her friend steals his phone as she and her friend run off laughing.

"How many times does the Center-right have to get physically attacked before they start getting organized and taking counter-measures?"

-- When the right organizes, it gets labeled as Nazis and "right-wing militias." The simple fact is that most of the moderate/center right don't really believe Antifa is as big and bad as it sounds until there's someone kicking them in the face.

So much of this happened in 2016.

I don’t remember this happening at Trump election rallies in 2020.

My guess is Trump avoided deep blue areas in 2020. Or was Antifa avoiding this type of actions due to the secret service since Trump was now President?

No, it's not. It's ALWAYS the time to employ deadly force only as a last resort and we aint' even close. Deadly force/civil war is a horrible, horrible option that I hope we never have to face, either as an individual or as a mass movement.

Thank-you for noticing and bringing it to the public's attention, Mr. Trump.

You've met a lot of really influential people over the last 30 years. Maybe you could call a guy who knows a guy that is in some position of power within the government that can actually protect the supporters of the President of the United States from being beaten on the streets of the nation's capitol.

My gut feeling is a thermonuclear explosion is occurring. The majority of Voters now acknowledge Voter Fraud happens in the US. Trump is shattering another Overton window, the one that the majority of voters believes there is no meaningful voter fraud in the us.

As Glenn Reynolds pointed out, the Anti Trumpers would not be doxing Trumps Election lawyers if they were not worried.

This goes against every past historical example. The Aristocracy has been running these games all during history and they always win.

The democrats and their terror arms are not acting in a way that belies comfort. They are scared of something.

But I find it very difficult to believe Powell actually has the goods.

Remember that Powell already chose sides and is already anathema. If Trump goes down she embarrassed a lot of people outing their corruption and will not be allowed to live.

Her only path may be to seek refuge among the cast out and misleading them into thinking she has evidence and asking for donations would be a very standard path for a lawyer to take.

Trump retweeted a video clip of a pro-Trump marcher being taken down by a brutal sucker punch from a counter-demonstrator. Trump saw it as proof of one-sided violence against his people and wrote that law enforcement was going to take care of the perpetrator(s).

The problem is, the clipped video that Trump retweeted didn't show how the fracas began; with those same Trump marchers starting the fight by attacking a counter-demonstrator standing peacefully on a sidewalk with a bullhorn:

'Get out of our city!' a young woman in black yelled

This has been yelled at Trump people everywhere across the country whenever they try to protest at the government seat of power—capitals— across the states. Now in the ultimate seat of power the federal space of Washington D.C.

They also yelled at people for bringing their kids — this was during broad daylight in the nation’s capital.

The CCP had an organized effort on WeChat to do exactly that to the Hong Kong protesters, trying to shame parents from bringing their families to protests.

Last night was a turning point and it will not be in the way the media— who did not cover this— think. What is interesting is that some media is actually owned by the CCP in Hong Kong and they would only cover pro-government protests...

Jupiter said...

“Violence erupts” instead of “Biden supporters attack them”.

Truth Be Told, I don't think those are Biden supporters. Biden is Kerensky. The attackers are mostly Leninists or Trotskyites, surrounded by the usual crowd of fellow travelers and useful idiots. The Stalinists are still lying low, but Biden is no Joe Stalin.

Hmmm..., well. Kyle Rittenhouse tried that in Kenosha, and he is currently rotting in jail. The worthless criminal scum who attacked him have not been charged. Soros' plan is a very good plan, as far as it goes. Of course, Soros is past 90, and it is likely that he isn't really in the saddle any longer. But whoever controls his money has made a very thorough and accurate assessment of the weaknesses in the American political system, and is using that money quite sparingly, to accomplish maximum damage.

Jupiter said...

One aspect of the Soros plan is the observation that there is always, in any society, an underclass eager to commit property crimes if they can get away with it. Soros has made allies of that criminal underclass. Witness the video cited above, in which an elderly Trump supporter is struck from behind and knocked unconscious to the pavement. A feral girl scoops up the phone he dropped, and she and her friend run off giggling together. I don't think this pair is overly concerned about the inequities of the American health care system.

Antifa is there for violence. We can expect pushback. Which is what antifa wants. Start a fight and keep escalating it. Pull everyone into the gutter so no one trusts anyone. Russia and China pull out the popcorn. Biden pulls out cornpop.

They should have been there armed, and the second Antifa attacked them they should have started shooting them.

The police aren't willing to protect you. Protect yourself, or stay home

Under the topic of lies destroying us:

* After months of leftist violence, if true patriots do strike back in self defense, who do you think will be blamed for the violence?

* Covid will continue to spread throughout the population until we get enough immunity to slow it down. Until then the number of people who test positive is and will continue to increase, because there really is nothing reasonable that can be done that will stop it. So if twice as many people test positive as before, but the exact same number of people die as normal, what happens to the number of people who die WITH Covid, AKA "died OF Covid"?

The big lie will continue until herd immunity, which will be how the next President fixes the problem, regardless of who that is. A vaccine may shorten the time needed, but the only reason it will is because Trump's methodology of removing financial, and regulatory obstacles produced a vaccine five times faster than any vaccine in history. The next President will get credit for that unless it's actually the guy who made it happen.

Did you ever wonder if the expanding of the universe is in place precisely to prevent humans from getting to another inhabited planet? As our technology improves the potential victims out there keep getting farther away and staying out of our poisonous reach.

Since the expansion of the universe doesn't affect bodies which are gravitationally bound to each other — such as the entire Milky Way galaxy, the whole Andromeda Galaxy (M31), plus dozens of other galaxies which are all part of the “Local Group” of bound galaxies — which includes perhaps a trillion stars and probably even more planets — ergo, no.

The longer version is that the person was using a bullhorn to assault protestors in the same manner antifa was using laser pointers to assault police.


..............

There is even longer video and the police have it.

Also same attackers in multiple videos attacking random Trump supporters.

A blue shift is the downfall of all intelligent life.

The right needs to sharpen their street-fighting skills. The AntiFa, BAMN, BLM, Anarchist groups have been practicing for four years and know how to organize, communicate and arm (helmets, pads, shields, etc.) under the benevolent eyes of Democrat city governments.
Either get tough or get off the streets.

You can say that again-

At least learn how to throw a punch. Maybe keep your balance after contact. Everyone flopping around like a European soccer game.

Not too many athletes on either side.

Why Roger Simon is a great writer:

“The only thing worth writing about was the usual blather about how many people showed up—25 or so, half of them confused tourists, according to CNN, two-thirds the population of India, according to Breitbart.

Crowd size is one of the great mythological subjects of our times. No one can possibly say for sure but everyone has an opinion. So I will state the obvious: It was a lot of people and, as noted above, everything was peaceful.

Until night fall.”

Caligula said...

"All the smearing in the world cannot disguise the fact the Trump voters were peaceful and the Biden voters were not."

You have not read a Gannet paper. USA Today's reporter determined that Trump supporters were the source of the violence at this rally.

Big Mike said...

The problem is, the clipped video that Trump retweeted didn't show how the fracas began; with those same Trump marchers starting the fight by attacking a counter-demonstrator standing peacefully on a sidewalk with a bullhorn

Yup. Standing “peacefully” on a sidewalk with a bullhorn. Not harassing anybody. Not goading Antifa and other lefties inclined towards violence into attacking people. Of course not. Just standing there “peacefully.”

Suuuuuuurrrrre.

They're yelling the things that Harvard law professor was writing.
And the answer in all cases is the ass whoopings they deserve.

Do none of you wonder why I keep typing "They want us all to be Green Grocers."

Have none of you read Vaclav Havel's "The Power of the Powerless"?
Do you not from what he meant?

The propaganda and political messaging has to be this corrupt.
It has to be this corrupting.
The point is to get reasonable people to doubt their own reasonableness.
They want normals to STFU and STFD so they have an open field.

And they cannot do it without our pretending they have power.
And our pretending we have no power.
But we do have power.

And none of us should ever be a Green Grocer.

What happens if Trump supporters and the antifa-BLM crowd both attend the inauguration?


Noone showed up at Biden's campaign events. Why would they bother with his inauguration?

In DC, it is illegal to be armed. So, stay away from the Nation's Capital? Good advice, I suppose, as far as one's personal safety is concerned.

Yeah, we know. Look. I was up in Portland a couple weeks ago. Pretty much every building with large, ground-floor windows had a Black Lives Matter sign prominently displayed. Even in parts of town where there has been no rioting. If you owned a restaurant or shop in Portland, and were already on the point of losing your business due to the Covid bullshit, would you take advantage of this golden opportunity to express your political views? If so, the rioters will be happy to trash your business, and you's better not be there when they do.

Like I said, Soros' people thought this through. They have been practicing their rioting technique in Portland for years, and building their coalition. Every "homeless" encampment is a recruiting ground, financed by the city. They now have a DA who dismisses all charges against rioters, but will persecute to the max anyone who resists effectively. This is serious as a heart attack, and we need to stop talking about how tough we are and figure out how exactly we can bring our strength to bear.

Jupiter said...

I don't see any way to resist effectively in Portland, as long as the idiots keep electing these Leftist vermin. I have reason to suspect that a lot of Portlanders with decidedly Leftist orientation are starting to wonder if maybe this hasn't gone a little too far, but they still re-elected Wheeler. They are going to need their faces rubbed in their shit, good and hard. Fortunately, Soros has just the team to do it. Meanwhile, the rest of us need to figure out how to keep them from spreading, and maybe leverage their overt criminality to take back some state-level offices. But Oregon has had vote-by-mail since 1998. I am starting to wonder if maybe there has not been an honest election in Oregon in this century.

@Jupiter, you figured it out. Well done.
