Sunday News Roundup: Antifa Goes to Sturgis and Portland Cops Suddenly Fight Back

This is the perfect illustration of what Twitter really is. – President Trump lost his brother, Robert Trump, to illness on Saturday. In response, the perpetual outrage crowd on Twitter started a hashtag, #wrongtrump, trending. The despicable cretins who run Twitter have left it up on their trending session all night long.

Twitter is a cesspool filled largely with self-loathing sub-humans.

America’s “first black woman vice presidential nominee” is a … Caucasian? – That’s what her own parents stated for her birth certificate:

Caucasian at birth, Indian or Jamaican when convenient, and now “black” in order to be placed on a presidential ticket. This is one highly-versatile lady.

Sadly, they were not beaten to within an inch of their sorry lives and dumped in a ditch. – A small band of Antifa fascists decided to go to Sturgis on Saturday and protest the big annual bike rally being held there. Fun predictably ensued, as reported at Powerline Blog:

Earlier today, a handful of Antifa goofs decided to take their anti-American shtick to the annual biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. If this sounds like a bad idea to you, you are right.

Actually, the bikers were commendably well-behaved. Sturgis is a fun, feel-good event, and it would take more than a few fascists to put the bikers in a seriously bad mood. Still, a scuffle broke out at one point. Police officers protected the Antifas and escorted them away safely. (It isn’t you, there is no sound with this video.)

Of course, the Antifas were counting on law enforcement to protect them. Some might find this ironic.

This is one instance where I would have preferred for the police to have been defunded. Unfortunately, they did their jobs.

Back to Kamala Harris… – Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel dismantles the 180 degree turn that the corrupt news media has performed in its characterization of Joe Biden’s designated successor. Back in December, when she ended her horror story of a campaign earlier than any other significant contender, the corrupt media mocked her. Today, now that she’s the Veep nominee of their Democrat Party masters, the very same corrupt reporters parrot DNC talking points portraying her as an invincible campaigner.

It really is amazing to watch. Here’s an excerpt from Strassel’s piece:

In that run, Ms. Harris had about 50 seconds of fame—from a June 2019 debate in which she accused Mr. Biden of being too friendly to racists. Her “That little girl was me” moment and other practiced phrases led to a “Saturday Night Live” impersonation that, as SFGate noted, “mocks” the candidate for her “ ‘viral moments’ desperation.” A New York Times story about how her campaign “unraveled” described one such quest for a memorable catchphrase, noting that her aides had become “given to gallows humor about just how many slogans and one-liners she has cycled through.”

If commentators are now struggling to define Ms. Harris, it’s because she offers little that is truly defining. The party establishment quickly closed ranks around her 2016 Senate race, allowing her to run a standard liberal campaign that the Los Angeles Times described as “carefully orchestrated” and “overly cautious and scripted.” In her 3½ Senate years, she’s done little by way of legislation, preferring to showboat at hearings. The lack of an animating agenda helps a explain a presidential campaign in which she bounced from left to far-left position, whatever she thought most helpful at the moment. She twice called to eliminate private health insurance—and twice reversed herself the next day after backlash. As Vox noted, the “combination of policy reversals and botched rollout . . . undermined faith in her ability to govern on the issue Democrats rate as most important.”

The campaign was a mess, rocked by infighting, leaks, restarts and financial problems. After the campaign announced layoffs in early November, its veteran Iowa operations manager wrote a scathing resignation letter in which she said she’d “never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly” and expressed dismay at its ability to make “the same unforced errors over and over.” Ms. Harris didn’t even make it to the first contest, dropping out—broke and with embarrassing poll numbers—two months before the Iowa caucuses. The only other “top tier” candidate to implode as quickly or spectacularly was Beto O’Rourke. The Washington Post campaign obituary bluntly called Ms. Harris an “uneven campaigner” who was “engulfed by low polling numbers, internal turmoil and a sense that she was unable to provide a clear message.” The Post this week lauded Ms. Harris as “vibrant and energetic” and a “vessel for Democratic hopes.”

As I pointed out on Thursday, Kamala Harris adds nothing but female hormones and dark-ish skin to the Biden non-campaign. She doesn’t help him in a single state, and her utter ineptitude as a campaigner will certainly end up costing the campaign many times in the weeks to come. She became pick only by virtue of being slightly  more appealing than the human slug Susan Rice.

She’s a horrible choice, but in the end, the only choice Biden’s handlers had once their addled candidate put them in the box they were in.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – Have the gloves been taken off of the Portland police now that the state police have abandoned the fight? It kind of looks like that might have been the case last night, as the Portland LEOs used tear gas, slashed the tires of idiots blocking traffic and just generally raised havoc with the communist Democrat-sponsored rioters.

As usual, we only know all of this thanks to the sterling efforts of real journalist Andy Ngo, who is one of Twitter’s few reedeming assets:

It’s good to see the police fighting back, albeit only on the 79th consecutive night of rioting in their city. Only time will tell if this was an aberration or a new policy dictate from communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler. We will find out when the riots ramp up for their 80th straight night on Sunday.

That is all.
