“And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight….”
Yeah, I’m really worn out trying to make sense of this bullshit.
At some point you just need to say, “Fuckitall” and make some popcorn while waiting for the credits crawl at the end…
Here are a couple basic key points … FACTS … to be primarily remembered, and NOT being mentioned in the wall-to-wall coverage, in last weekend’s clash of the radical, racist titans in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia:
1. The vile alt/right/KKK/neo-Nazi/white supremacist groups had a legal permit to gather and march in the public streets. A permit the ACLU themselves fought to have upheld when the city’s democrat mayor sought to ban them.
2. The antifa/SJW groups that were bussed into the city DID NOT have legal permits to gather and counter-protest.
3. Reports on the ground are the city police that were on duty to keep law and order during the initial protesters gathering fell-back when the counter-protest groups got off their rides and began filing in
Ben Shapiro @ The Daily Wire also lists some key facts the MSM is burying: 7 Things You Need To Know About The Charlottesville Violence And White Supremacist Terror Attack
1. The Alt-Right Is Not Conservative
2. The Alt-Right Has Successfully Created The Impression There Are Lots Of Them. There Aren’t
3. The Alt-Right Has Been Tut-Tutted By President Trump And His Advisors For Over A Year. Yesterday Was Nothing New
4. The Car Attack Was An Act of Terrorism
5. Trump’s Unwillingness To Fight The Alt-Right Tooth And Nail Grows The Alt-Right
6. The Left’s Malfeasance And Support For Violent Groups Like Antifa Grow The Alt-Right
7. The Media’s Broad Misusage Of The Term Alt-Right Grows The Alt-Right
A couple things here:
1. It is yet undetermined exactly why the guy ran his car into the crowd. I’ve heard he became frantic when the counter-protesters swarmed his vehicle … Which brings me back to the fundamental failure(s) of the local police and the city leaders to control the situation, and closing roads to vehicle traffic would have been, I dunno, ‘smart’/’wise’?
2. Yes, Trump has been hesitant in singling out such groups (on both sides really). But at least he hasn’t deemed them “The JV team”. And to Trump’s defense, his initial statement on the horrific event was actually the wiser for not knee-jerking, as Obama ALWAYS did, and waiting for precision remarks after the details were gathered and given to him. I’m sorry but I’d inject the old Obama logic and reasoning here, but to a truer realization, that “the police (and the mayor) acted stupidly”.
Rush Limbaugh: What Really Happened in Charlottesville…
Sheryl Gay Stolberg at the New York Times tweeted the following: “A few rapid thoughts from Charlottesville. Number one, striking how many of the white nationalists were young people, almost entirely men.” Her second tweet: “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as the Alt-Right. I saw club wielding Antifa beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” So here’s an acknowledgment from the media, from the New York Times, that there was an equal amount of hate from the left in this incident.
And then this in the Washington Post by David Weigel — believe me, who is nowhere near the right side of the aisle. Headline: “Fear of ‘Violent Left’ Preceded Events in Charlottesville.” I had to have three people read this to make sure that I wasn’t missing something in this. “On Saturday afternoon, shortly before her camera captured a car plowing through left-wing activists in Charlottesville, killing one and injuring more than a dozen others, Faith Goldy warned that the left was spinning out of control.”
“‘Hundreds and hundreds of Antifa, weird BLM [Black Lives Matter] idiots dressed like clowns,’ said Goldy… ‘This is okay, as long as you’re not the Alt-Right. The Alt-Right wasn’t allowed to demonstrate any show of force.’ As if on cue, activists began chanting ‘black lives matter’ in the background of Goldy’s shot. ‘Chant BLM, and all of a sudden the cops don’t care!’ she said. ‘Where are the riot police now?’” Well, the riot police were told to stand down. Somebody had to tell the riot police to stand down.
In New York City, NYPD officials said this would have never been allowed to happen in New York. The riot police would have never let these two groups get anywhere near each other. They would not have allowed an automobile to get anywhere near any of this. There would have been barricades and the New York PD says, “We would…” Now, hindsight, I know, is always 20/20, but the NYPD people are speaking in terms of policy. And when you had a volatile situation like this they would have never let these two groups get together.
But in Charlottesville the police stood down. Why? A lot of this stuff I say to you doesn’t make sense. I understand this, I know you do too but on the surface doesn’t make sense. Who would order the cops to stand down and why? This has become the latest story and the latest excitement that animates and energizes the Get Rid of Trump movement in the Washington establishment and in the media — and if you think this issue’s gonna fade away after today, you have another thing coming.
This is about violence between two hate groups with no association with Donald Trump or the Republican Party, but the media is doing everything it can to associate the Nazis and the skinheads and the white supremacists with not just Trump, but the Republican Party. That’s why the Republican Party, everybody in it ran to the microphones and condemned it. They did everything, ’cause they know that if they don’t go out and say that, the Drive-Bys and everybody else on the left are gonna do everything they can to associate this with the Republican Party.
As Limbaugh mentions in today’s broadcast the NYTimes reporter was thrashed on Twitter for her truth-slippage and today has walked back her remarks in order to make the alt-left groups the heroes in the situation.
Meanwhile, the city’s police chief is denying the mayor told the department to ‘hold back’ from the protest.
And what was at the core of this rally in Charlottesville?
Well, for one the fact that in the last couple years the left/liberals have declared war on ‘whites’, “white privilege and all that” and ‘white males’ in particular. Hell, as of the 2016 the democrat party has admitted they are abandoning the “white middle class/male vote” in favor of “identity politics” and their collective groups. But it was also connected to the current ISIS-like removal and destruction by this country’s left of historic monuments and statues, in this case a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee:
U.S. cities step up removal of Confederate statues, despite Virginia violence
Abrams calls for removal of Confederate faces off Stone Mountain
Ace: Vandals Destroy Statue in Durham; Cops Claim They’ll Prosecute
This is our history, as ugly as it was, and, by the way, similar racist/bigoted histories in every damn country of this Earth have played out over the ages. These statues and monuments are reminders of that era and that pivotal war. When people see them they are forced to look at the entire scope of that part of history and the fact that it was an internal war our nation had to suffer in order to unite. If we do not have these reminders, and the chapters in our history books that are also being looked at for removal, how the fucking Hell are our future generations going to have a full context on what happened and why, other than the left waving the “whites enslaved blacks!” banner? This is willfully and foolishly irrational! If you choose to ignore history you really are doomed to repeat it, ya know.

As are racist fascist groups: Jennifer Lawrence calls on her 16 million Facebook followers to help identify Charlottesville neo-Nazis
Oh geez, J-Law, guess these idiots need a wealthy benefactor buying them dark hoodies & face masks like Soros does for his street minions.
You know, I really want to like this actress but she makes it so hard.
Here’s the thing, J-Law, they have no hoods or masks on in their ridiculous public display of “hate”. Did you call for ID-ing of those antifa/anarchist members over the past years, hellz, the past YEAR, that have had such self-gratifying street displays as they smashed private businesses and burned streets and campuses and beat the crap out of people? Did you?
And if you go to comments on her Facebook account you can see the apologist a-holes in there making disgusting excuses and baseless justifications for the other groups we have witnessed over the years involved in such unhinged violent ‘street art’ of their passionate insanity.
I’m not looking to protect anyone from their lousy opinions and views, as bigoted and hateful as they be. I am looking for equal “free speech” protection and defense, AND condemnation/punishment of the indefensible, of these dicks on both sides.
It is “free speech”, not ‘favored speech’.
Others, unlike actress J-Law’s call to DOXing, just want to remind those who dare defile symbols that abhor those groups these people now align with…

Me: Democrat party’s roots are in the Confederacy, which is what they are really seeking to erase. So they can say, “The Confederacy was comprised of democrats? The KKK was formed and populated by democrats? Where did you hear/see that, huh? Prove it.”
