Sunday News Roundup: The Democrat-Sponsored Riots Will Continue Until You Take A Knee

What if they wrote a Tweet and nobody knew what it meant? – Well, you’d get a Tweet like this one from Breitbart this morning: “The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.”

That was the first thing I saw when I got online this morning, and I have to admit to being baffled. What in the world is a Seattle Storm and a New York Liberty? Turns out that those are two teams in the WNBA, a league I honestly thought had folded years ago.

From the Breitbart piece:

The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.

In addition, there was a 26-second moment of silence in honor of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville police.

Each player also wore Taylor’s name on the back of their jerseys.

“We are dedicating this season to Breonna Taylor, an outstanding EMT who was murdered over 130 days ago in her home,” Liberty player Layshia Clarendon announced before tip-off. “Breonna Taylor was dedicated and committed to uplifting everyone around here. We are also dedicating this season to ‘Say Her Name” campaign, a campaign committed to saying the names and fighting for justice of black women – black women are so often forgotten in this fight for justice, who don’t have people marching in the streets for them. We will say her name. Sandra Bland. Atatiana Jefferson. Dominique Remy Fells. Breonna Taylor. We will be a voice for the voiceless.”

[End]

So, a really good cause but a really dumb way to draw attention to it. The great news for the WNBA is that no one watches their games anyway, so walking off the court won’t cost them in the TV ratings.

The “peaceful protests” continued around the country on Saturday. – In Austin, Texas, a chubby, pasty-white 30-something doofus who was carrying an AK-47 was shot and killed when he reportedly aimed his rifle at a passing motorist. Turned out the motorist – who is cooperating with local police – was carrying, too. The BLM protester’s last words to a TV interviewer were “people who hate us” are “too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it.” Guess not. Life comes at you fast, foks.

In Seattle, the “peaceful protesters” from the BLM/Antifa terrorist complex managed to burn a large warehouse building and injure 21 police officers. That finally prompted despicable Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan to declare a riot.

From a report by KIRO Channel 7:

During a media briefing with Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, she said Saturday’s protest was not a peaceful demonstration at all [Gee, you think?], and many people were put at risk. She described the path that rioters took.

What started with thousands of people gathering peacefully Saturday afternoon in Capitol Hill in solidarity with the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in Portland changed later in the day.

The group met at Seattle Central College at East Pine Street and Broadway at around 1 p.m. before starting their march and loudly making their message heard to defund SPD.

Things shifted at about 4 p.m.

During the march, Seattle police said about a dozen people devolved into a rampage of destruction as they marched past the King County Youth Detention Center at 12th Avenue and Alder Street, targeting the site.

Some rioters carried sledgehammers and began shattering workers’ car windows in the parking lot.

At one point, a rioter grabbed a flagger’s stop sign and used it as a weapon.

[End]

So, just a bunch of peaceful kids having peaceful fun in peaceful Seattle, right, New York Times?

Meanwhile, the fun continued in Portland, Oregon for the 59th straight day. Here’s how terrific journalist Andy Ngo captured the peaceful action:

Oh, so much peace, so much fun, so much beautiful bonding, right, CNN?

But never fear! Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has her priorities right where you’d expect them to be!

From a report at Breitbart:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot deployed dozens of police officers on Thursday to form a human barricade around the block where she lives. This was the same day she ordered the removal of a Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park in the overnight hours.

The local CBS affiliate reported on the scene in Chicago, where the Trump administration is sending federal police to help quell the ongoing violence, as shooting deaths occur on a daily basis:

About 1,000 protesters gathered in Logan Square Thursday night calling for racial justice and police reform. The protesters were gathered at Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, close to where Mayor Lori Lightfoot lives, as of 9:15 p.m.

The group included representatives of Black Lives Matter and Good Kids Mad City, and they are also calling for the defunding of police. 

The protest began at the actual Logan Square at Milwaukee and Kedzie avenues. It grew considerably as it moved through the neighborhood.

Honestly, every time you think Democrat politicians cannot possibly become more depraved, despicable and demented, they go and prove you wrong.

That is all.

John Heilman Channels Joseph Goebbels on Morning Joe

On “Morning Joe” this morning, John Heilman just gave away the Democrat plan for refusing to accept the results of the November election. – Everybody needs to watch this video and then read the transcript provided below.

The first thing to remember about Democrats is that Projection is their favorite political tactic. They always, invariably accuse the Republicans of doing what they plan to do. That began with the rise of the Clintons and has only become more ingrained in their culture as time as gone on.

We saw it in 2016: The Pantsuit Princess and her media toadies like Mr. Heilman spent the entire general election campaign claiming that Donald Trump – who they all assured us was certain to lose – would not accept the results of the election. They have all spent the past 3 years and 8 months since November 8, 2016 refusing themselves to accept the results of that election.

That’s Projection.

This year, their projection of their intentions should Biden lose in November is worse – much, much worse. Not only does Heilman project in his semi-insane screed below that the Democrat/media complex of disinformation plans to refuse to accept a Trump victory, he also projects that they will engage in a massive use of violence to intimidate Trump voters (already happening), a massive use of voter fraud through mail-in voting, and a massive use of rioting and street violence after the results are in.

He couches all of this and more in accusations against the President, but this is how Democrats work to justify their own seditious behavior by first convincing the public that their opponents are actually the ones planning to do these things. When the time comes – just as the Fainting Felon has done since 2016 – they claim they’re only doing what Trump was planning to do.

Watch the clip below, and then read transcript – with my own commentary sprinkled in for clarification – that follows:

Transcript/Commentary:

Heilman: Everything that’s been said here about this particular issue is, I think, right, but does not go far enough. This is authoritarianism. These are paramilitary units. These are the kind of things we have seen in tyrranical, authoritarian regimes in third world countries throughout the 2nd half of the 20th century.

Comment: What this actually is is a President, faced with a violent insurrection sponsored and organized by the Democrat Party doing his duty to quell said insurrection in these Democrat-run cities.

Heilman: This is not a mystery what’s going on here, and I think to look at this through the prism of symbolic politics – a law and order campaign, Trump trying to re-run the Nixon playbook – is true, but as I say doesn’t go far enough. We are looking, I think here, and this is a dark [oooooh, there’s the media’s favor D-word], and I don’t want to be overly alarmist about this [yes, he does], but I think this is the time to be alarmist, knowing where Donald Trump stands politically, understanding where we are headed in this election, I think we are looking at kind of a trial run, a kind of a genuine attempt to, to, to through intimidation, and potentially through force, to try to, uh, wh-, to try to steal this election.

Comment: There, he said it. This is Heilman stuttering and stammering as he parrots talking points designed to provide justification for the Democrat Party to steal this election via mail-in voting. See how this works?

Heilman: And I think we’re now kind of at the point where, you know, we see the things that the President is doing; we see his intention to not accept the outcome of this election, where he loses to Joe Biden, he is making it very clear.

Comment: This is just a repetition of the “Trump won’t accept the outcome” BS talking points Heilman and the rest of the Hillary-supporting media deployed at right about this same time in 2016.

Heilman: And some of it is, is rhetoric about mail-in voting. But when the next thing, in his next breath he is talking about sending un-, these un-marked paramilitary guard to places with Democratic, Democr-, uh, blue states with very blue cities run by Democratic mayors…I think we should all take very seriously the prospect  that this is, as I say, a dress rehearsal, a trial run for first, an attempted voter intimidation on election day – are these un-marked paramilitary units going to be doing security at polls in battleground states?

Comment: Note that Heilman himself points out that this is all happening in Democrat cities run by Democrat mayors as if that is some sort of plot by the President. The fact is, it is happening in those specific cities because Republican mayors do their damn jobs, and are not in the habit of fomenting violent insurrections on their own citizens.

Heilman: I think that’s a question we’d like to have answered. That is, uh, an ef-, potentially an effort at voter intimidation, and then, what happens in the overtime period? Anybody who’s serious about this election recognizes, listening to the President, that there is a very high likelihood that he is not going to concede if he loses the Electoral College on election night.

Comment: Here, Heilman previews how the Democrats will use Antifa/BLM and their violent rioters to intimidate Trump voters during the fall and on election day. Do not doubt me on this.

Heilman: In those two and a half months after election day, until January 20th, if Donald trump has lost this election, th, th, the things we are seeing right now, these incredibly alarming, incredibly disturbing images, unmarked paramilitary units that have no clear chain of command, no clear identification, taking protesters, putting them in unmarked vehicles, driving them away to god knows where – we should all be kind of freaking out about this right now, and what it could portend for this fall and beyond.

Comment: And finally, this is Heilman previewing the Democrat plan to stage massive riots and violent insurrections across the country after the President defeats Joe Biden on November 3.

[End]

It is absolutely appropriate to note here that Projection was also a favorite tactic used by Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis. Heilman makes such extensive use of it here that perhaps we should start referring to him as “Seig Heilman” instead.

That is all.

These Democrat Riots Will End America’s Downtown Renaissance

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The inevitable outcomes of this past week of rioting in the major, Democrat-controlled cities are very predictable. The abject refusal by Democrat mayors and governors to make any effort whatsoever to protect the citizens and small businesses from the excesses of Antifa- and BLM-led burning and pillaging will have consequences for those cities for decades to come.

The first two decades of the 21st century have seen a revival of the central cities in America, as the Baby Boomer flight to the suburbs has given way to a move back to downtown and mid-town areas by Gen-X, Gen-Y and Millennials wanting to avoid being trapped into a life of long commutes they watched their parents endure. Life in high-rise and mid-rise condominiums within walking distance of office and shopping centers has become the new norm for these younger generations of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of small businesses have sprung up on the ground floors of those condo buildings to serve them.

When I first lived in Houston in 1980, no one lived in the downtown area, and the thriving area called “mid-town” was a slum. You didn’t want to linger downtown past dark because it was too dangerous to be caught there. Most other large cities in America were in similar shape after all of the “white flight” to the suburbs that had taken place since the 1960s.

That all began to change in the mid-1990s, after mayors like Rudy Giuliani had taken charge of the security situations in those downtown areas and city governments and business leaders invested billions in urban renewal projects designed to make those areas attractive places to live. College graduates of all races, colors and creeds, having grown up watching their parents spend 2 to 3 hours a day in stop and go traffic saw the advantages of living a few blocks from work and seized the opportunities to do so.

From Seattle to Portland to San Diego to Phoenix to Denver to Dallas to Houston to Miami to Boston, and many points in between, downtown/mid-town neighborhoods that were basically hellholes 40 years ago were turned into great cultural melting pots of our society. It was a stunning success story of 21st century America. But then came Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and the policies of hands-off policing, policies that order the police to stand down and watch helplessly during riots as the bad actors vent their rage at the expense of residents and small businesses.

The last week is simply the inevitable result of those “progressive” policies.

Thousands of young-ish New Yorkers who moved to Soho because it was a cool place to be woke up Monday morning horrified by the reality that Bill de Blasio had allowed the neighborhood they had believed to be safe and secure to be looted and burned during the night. Thousands more New Yorkers are waking up to similar realities in other Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods this morning. Residents and business owners in downtown and mid-town areas of Minneapolis and Chicago and Philadelphia have seen their lives and livelihoods destroyed by city leaders who couldn’t be bothered to do anything to stop all the mayhem. The vast majority of these people are loyal Democrats who thought the leaders they have repeatedly elected would protect them.

Silly them.

The worst thing about it is that that mayhem – the looting, the burning, the shattering of doors and windows – was largely committed by their neighbors, egged on by BLM and Antifa organizers from out of state.

If you are a young mother or father who has just seen half of the buildings surrounding your home vandalized, burned and looted by people who live just blocks away, how will you ever feel secure in that home again? If you are a small business owner who has just had your storefront windows shattered and your store looted while your city’s Democrat leaders sat safe in their mansions and did nothing, what will be your incentive for reopening? You may do it for awhile, try to get back on your feet while putting bars on your doors and windows, but how long can you last as you watch half of your customers flee back to the suburbs where they were raised by their commuting parents?

The Democrat mayors and inner-city councilmen won’t care, because the captive population left behind will only lean more strongly in their favor. Their lives of grifting in positions of political power will have been secured.

For the people left behind, life will become grim. Sadly, most of them will have no understanding of the fact that the re-created downtown/mid-town hellholes to come are the result of their own actions and voting habits.

Life’s a cycle, and when you just keep mindlessly voting for Democrats, you get what you ask for, whether you realize it or not.

That is all.
