Wokesters Desecrate Abraham Lincoln in Boise

A story from Boise epitomizes today’s Left and its relation to American heritage:

A bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln, known as “Seated Lincoln,” was vandalized with paint, feces, and protest signs on Monday in Julia Davis Park. Three protest groups claimed responsibility for the act.

Among the groups claiming responsibility was “Peaceful Roots of Change.”

Members of the group described the act as a temporary political display meant to raise awareness on the first day of Black History Month.

As part of his reward for freeing the slaves, Honest Abe got a Black Lives Matter flag wrapped around his neck.

The other groups involved were Black Lives Matter Boise and Antifa Boise.

Once again, Lincoln was targeted on the pretext that he saved from the noose the vast majority but not all of the Indians involved in the Santee Sioux uprising. According to woke ideology, it is an unforgiveable sin to have punished savages for murdering whites in the 19th century.

Also, Peaceful Roots of Change spokesmoonbat Samantha Hager falsely claims that Lincoln owned slaves. Now that objective truth has been subordinated to liberal ideology, history is whatever leftists imagine would justify their behavior.

Hager barks that the Constitution of the country she is trying to destroy guarantees the right to vandalize statues. She says the group consulted with the ACLU and National Lawyers Guild prior to the vandalism, and smugly crows,

“We have wonderful lawyers on our side that are at our beck and call.”

How wonderful these lawyers are is a matter of opinion.

People still move to Idaho in hopes of escaping liberalism and its predictable consequences. But it is no longer far enough. Nowhere on earth is far enough. If we don’t fight leftists where we stand, they win. America will continue to be defiled, then erased.

Applied liberal ideology.

Liberal Nihilism Explained

Gregory McKelvey is an avowed communist who served as campaign manager to Sarah Iannarone, the Antifa candidate for Mayor of Portland. In explaining the sociopathic behavior of Antifa mobs, he offers some insight into the nihilism that is surpassing even superciliousness as the primary distinguishing characteristic of liberals.

McKelvey, via Willamette Week:

For generations like mine and the one after, we have been told our entire lives that the world is about to end if nothing is done immediately, and that all of the evils of our world—climate chaos, racism, the ills of capitalism, and more—are all inexplicably linked. In my mind, and the minds of protesters, these things are objectively true.

If we are going understand the endless pointless rioting,

we must put ourselves in the minds of someone who probably rightfully believes the world is ending or, at a minimum, is on the brink of being unrecognizable with incredible amounts of death, pain and climate chaos. …

It’s amazing to me that liberal Democrats really do believe that we are on the brink of something like Armageddon and then are shocked that some people behave like it.

The Democrat Party’s ideology is not meant to be taken literally. It is a tool to maintain the hegemony of the liberal establishment. How else do you explain American corporations donating $billions to the explicitly Marxist Black Lives Matter movement?

Our rulers are playing with dynamite, because some people will take their phony ideology at face value. The gullible and the hopelessly brainwashed who have never ventured outside the bubble of liberal propaganda will literally believe that freedom is racist and therefore evil, that capitalism makes people poor rather than wealthy, and that the entire planet will die if we don’t let the government radically reduce our standard of living.

This ideology is a virus vastly more dangerous than COVID-19.

The primary symptom is nihilism, which destroys respect for everything we need to believe in to prevent civilization from sliding into decline. This nihilism explains the appalling decay of American culture showcased by the entertainment industry, and the willingness of millions to support the corruption and autocracy personified by Joe Biden.

Antifa Forces Andy Ngo to Flee USA

No wonder there are hardly any real journalists in this country anymore, only servile Democrat apparatchiks who have switched from hecklers of Donald Trump to dewy-eyed idolaters of Joe Biden. This is no longer a safe country for real journalists — not once they have a reputation for exposing the viciousness of the Left’s street-level shock troops. That’s why Andy Ngo has had to flee the erstwhile Land of the Free in fear for his life:

In an interview with Sky News about his upcoming new book, “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy,” Ngo explained to his hosts that “for [any] number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me.”

Ngo — who’s now in London — noted that “all those threats were reported to authorities, and even when I provided names of some of the suspects, nothing was done. So, it’s pained me a lot to temporarily [have] to leave the country and home that settled my parents, who came there as political refugees.”

It used to be that political refugees fled to America, rather than from it. At least we still receive plenty of economic “refugees,” thanks to the extravagant generosity of the welfare state.

For years, Ngo has served as the primary information source on Antifa from his base in Portland. He kept at it even after Antifa goons brutally beat him in 2019.

Serving as an island of honest journalism in a sea of partisan activism, Ngo resisted any temptation to blame the Capitol Riot on Antifa.

Ngo is fair to Antifa wokesters. He tells the truth about them. That’s why they want to kill him.

Ngo also has the honor of having made enemies among our liberal elite overlords:

A little over a week ago, New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong — who was hired by the “paper of record” despite her history of relentless social media attacks against “dumbass f***ing white people.” — set her sights on Ngo, calling him “dangerous” and a “very real threat.”

As soft tyranny gives way to hard, we are reaching the point where being called “dangerous” and a “threat” by powerful liberals is itself a threat, indicating that you are in genuine danger.

Antifa has also managed to intimidate Portland’s well-known Powell’s Books into not stocking or promoting Ngo’s upcoming book.

Huey Long had it right if he really said, “Sure, we’ll have Fascism in this country and we’ll call it anti-Fascism.”

Mob Violence Genie Remains Out of Bottle

In 2020, the liberal establishment released the mob violence genie by inciting, praising, and facilitating Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots. This worked beautifully, resulting in $billions in damages, destroying any number of businesses, and feeding a public perception of the country spinning out of control, which helped Democrats seize power. Now that it has served its purpose, will the genie obediently slink back into its bottle? Unlikely.

This was the scene on Inauguration Day in Portland:

Biden’s VP (and possibly already our de facto president) Kamala Harris has praised Black Lives Matter/Antifa rioters as the “heroes of our time,” has explicitly called for them to keep it up, and has raised funds to bail them out of jail so that they can resume their destructive activities. But no one could be far enough left to suit a mob addicted to public displays of political violence — not even Biden’s handlers.

There won’t be fewer pointless “imperialist” wars under Biden’s handlers.

The Portland fun climaxed at Democratic Party HQ, where the social justice warriors paid their respects:

In case it wasn’t already clear that Biden’s own foot soldiers don’t like him much better than patriots do,

Meanwhile, up the Left Coast in Seattle, the original Starbucks location was attacked, as was a courthouse:

There was more Antifa violence in Denver and Sacramento.

Good thing Antifa is left-wing. Otherwise, the liberal establishment would be running these videos 24/7 as proof that dissidents need to be detained in reeducation camps.

Inauguration Day, 2017

As Vlad Tepes notes, it is very important to remember past events as they actually happened in a country that has come to resemble Winston Smith’s Airstrip One.

The catastrophe at the Capitol on January 6 has allowed the liberal establishment to portray its opposition as a violent mob. For the inauguration on Wednesday, Washington will look like a police state. There may be more armed soldiers than spectators. “What a shame,” journalists will lament, “that we have to live like this thanks to conservatives.”

Footage of progressives tearing up DC at the last inauguration will go down the memory hole.

Antifa/BLM Own NYC Streets, Attack Journalist

Meanwhile, as our liberal overlords exploit the insurrection at the Capitol last Wednesday as a pretext to crush free speech, Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue to enjoy a free hand to dominate public spaces, and not only in dystopian Portland. Yesterday they flexed their muscle in New York City:

A large group of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators wearing black bloc and carrying shields marched in the streets of Manhattan on Sunday. …

The marchers chanted, “Whose mother-f**king streets? Our mother-f**king streets” …

Here’s how they treat interlopers on their MF’ing streets:

Social-media journalist Tara Szczepanski reported being assaulted by some from the rally. She reported having an egg smashed on the back of her head.

In the video she tweeted, she is assaulted by at least two of the men. One sprayed her with a chemical string and another appeared to strike her with a skateboard.

The mob identified her as “a f**king Nazi” and accused her of supporting the President of the USA. Anyone who fails to embrace Antifa/BLM ideology is a Nazi and will be treated accordingly.

Szczepanski rushed to nearby NYPD police officers and appears to be assaulted again — in view of the cops. She said they “they told me to stay 6 feet from them and let me be attacked.”

What else would you expect in Bill de Blasio’s New York?

Let’s watch some of Szczepanski’s video, since the MSM doesn’t cover stuff like this:

Our progressive future opens before us like the gates of hell.

Antifa Continues to Harass Ted Wheeler

Antifa rioted in Portland for 100+ consecutive nights, while Mayor Ted Wheeler wrung his hands and bleated sympathetically. Let’s see what kind of thanks he is receiving lately:

Wheeler and a dinner companion had been seated in Café Nell’s outdoor dining area for about five minutes when a group started shouting obscenities at him from outside the tent, mayoral spokesman Jim Middaugh said in a statement.

The hecklers forced their way past restaurant employees and confronted Wheeler, who asked them to leave.

“At that point, one member of the group started swatting at the Mayor and made physical contact with him,” Middaugh said.

Wheeler was not hurt, but would be within his rights to press charges for assault, not that he is likely to.

Last summer, Antifa laid siege to his home. Only very recently has he expressed a serious willingness to restore order, after handcuffing the police and resisting outside assistance.

The lesson: there is no middle ground with Antifa. If you oppose them in the slightest way, they will regard you as the enemy.

Meanwhile, the chaos continues:

Portland Riots Must Have Served Their Purpose

The election must really be over. The well over 100 riots that have erupted in Portland since last spring having served their political purpose, Mayor Ted Wheeler is willing to put an end to them by calling in outside help:

Wheeler requested for federal, state, and county law enforcement “to convene to deal with anarchist violence as soon as possible.” He also asked for the state legislature to increase penalties for repeat offenders of criminal destruction and vandalism.

In the past, Wheeler has pandered to the leftist rioters, handcuffing the police and resisting outside assistance despite his obvious inability to handle the situation himself. He even blamed those who offered to help for creating “the hate and the division.”

Time will tell whether Democrats can get the Black Lives Matter/Antifa genie back in the bottle now that they have conjured it.

Leftist Mob Turns on Nancy Pelosi

Anyone who thought the leftist mob that Democrats have nurtured and encouraged could ever be satisfied should consider what they did to one of Nancy Pelosi’s residences. Via ABC 7:

A home in San Francisco belonging to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was vandalized early Friday morning with an apparent reference to lawmakers’ failed efforts to provide Americans with $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks.

Another $600 apiece just for breathing was not enough. Start handing out something for free and demands for more will inevitably escalate. This is why people are advised not to feed wild animals.

Like Trump, Pelosi wants to give everyone another $2,000, to be paid for through inflation by anyone with savings or on a fixed income. But she has failed to come through with the cash, so the mob is getting restless.

The graffiti was found on the garage door of Pelosi’s home overnight with the phrases “$2K”, “Cancel rent!” and “We want everything.”

They do mean everything. The Frankenstein monster liberals created won’t settle for anything less.

The vandals also left fake blood and what appears to be a pig head outside the House Speaker’s San Francisco home.

It could be that Pelosi’s Marxist rhetoric denouncing “disparities in income” is not ringing true among her fellow left-wingers. Incidentally, she is worth $114 million.

The graffiti on Pelosi’s garage includes a demand for “UBI” — i.e., universal basic income. They don’t want an unearned $2,000 check just once. They want one on a regular basis for the rest of their lives. When they get it, they will demand $3,000 checks, then $4,000…

Mitch McConnell, who proved responsible enough to block the $2,000 handout, received similar treatment. Note that the mob does not distinguish between those who actively oppose it and those who try but fail to grant its demands.

Hilariously, McConnell’s door was vandalized with a misspelled attempt to write “Where’s my money?” Everyone else’s money rightfully belongs to leftists, according to the ideology the liberal establishment has cultivated.

Profiles in Moonbattery: Mikaele Andrew Baker

If you have kids, pay close attention to whose custody you place them in. You wouldn’t want their malleable minds warped by a camp counselor like Mikaele Andrew Baker.

Via Post Millennial:

An Antifa militant who publicized a hit list of Seattle business owners has been identified as a trans nonbinary furry and children’s camp counselor who has been arrested multiple times at violent protests.

Mikaele Andrew Baker, 23, of Seattle, tweeted an extensive list of local business owners last week who signed a petition in support of the dismantling of a growing autonomous zone in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The business owners were subsequently doxed and received threats.

In today’s political climate, they easily might have been burned to the ground, particularly in a place like Seattle, where local authorities largely side with Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists.

Baker was born male but now identifies as trans nonbinary and uses “they/them” pronouns.

Liberals would like nothing better than for children to grow up regarding guys like Baker as normal and even as role models.

Baker has called for violence on Twitter, dropping pearls of wisdom like this:

“What’s the point of having guns if you’re not going to use them to shoot racists? #seattleprotests #CHAZ.”

He is Vice-Chair of the Washington Progressive Party, a 2020 certified state delegate for Bernie Sanders, and a member of the Youth Liberation Front, which organizes violent “direct actions,” i.e., terrorist activity. Apparently none of this pays well, because he also works as a childcare worker and counselor at summer camps.

Online, Baker identifies as an “antifascist catgirl” and is open about [his] sexual fetishes, including having a desire for “punishment enemas” and exploring [his] “pet side.”

There was a time when Americans would not let a fellow like Baker near their children, even in Seattle.

At least he isn’t a schoolteacher like Yvette/Yvonne Felarca or a journalist like Renea Goddard.

Coronabucks Flow to Antifa, Black Lives Matter

To compensate for the economically crushing coronavirus restrictions, we get free money from the government, compliments of whoever gets stuck holding the bag on the national debt (likely us, through hyperinflation). This free money comprises a looting spree. As usual, the looted money flows in the direction of those favored by the liberal ruling class — Marxist terrorists and black supremacist race rioters, for example:

Apparently, the State of Oregon wants more antifa and Black Lives Matter rioting. At [a] time when violent rioters were setting fires, looting, and terrorizing the people of Portland, they were rewarded with U.S. CARES Act COVID relief funds.

Moonbat Terrorists Sabotage Train Tracks

Since the establishment does more to encourage than to prevent leftist terrorism, no one should be surprised that it is becoming more serious. Moonbat terrorists have taken to sabotaging train tracks:

SAMANTHA FRANCES BROOKS, 27, and ELLEN BRENNAN REICHE, 23, both of Bellingham, Washington, were arrested Saturday night in Bellingham as they allegedly placed a ‘shunt’ on the tracks. A shunt disrupts the low level electrical current on the tracks and can disable various safety features.

This isn’t an isolated incident.

“Since January there have been 41 incidents of shunts placed on the BNSF tracks in Whatcom and Skagit counties—causing crossing guards to malfunction, interfering with automatic braking systems, and, in one case, causing the near-derailment of tanks of hazardous chemicals,” said U.S. Attorney Moran.

Placing shunts is so indiscriminately malevolent, you would think al Qaeda was behind it.

On ten occasions, shunts were placed in areas that disrupt the crossing guards where the tracks cross streets, so vehicles could have tried to cross the tracks unaware of the oncoming train. On the night of October 11, 2020, multiple shunts were placed in three different locations in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. The shunts triggered an automatic braking system on a train that was transporting hazardous and combustible material. The emergency braking then caused a portion of the train to decouple from the engine. Decoupling has the potential to cause a derailment—in this case—of tanker cars of flammable gas in a residential area.

No worries. Even if random innocent people end up getting killed, the important thing is that it is for a politically correct cause.

An Antifa website claimed responsibility for railway attacks in the area in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en Indians, because America exists on stolen land, et cetera.

Ellen Reiche’s vehicle was parked near the scene of the arrest, sporting a sticker on the back asserting that the USA should belong to Indians.

Occasion2B has some background on Reiche, despite the suspects’ apparent efforts to scrub themselves from the Internet. Pronouns have been corrected on the assumption that Reiche is female, although with moonbats, it isn’t easy to tell these days:

Reiche, who identifies as “non-binary” and uses “they/them” pronouns, was the deputy field organizer for Washington State Democrats, according to [her] now-deleted LinkedIn profile. …

Additionally, Reiche is a radical queer and environmental activist who co-founded the Bellingham Lesbian Collective. [She is] a co-host on “The L World” lesbian-themed podcast.

Deranged people are drawn to deranged ideas. This results in deranged behavior, which in turn results in innocent people getting hurt. This is what makes the ideology espoused by the education and media establishments so dangerous.

Dominion and Antifa

It may take years to sort out the blizzard of disinformation regarding this year’s election fraud, but if this quote from Dominion Voting Systems Director of Product Strategy and Security Eric Coomer is accurate, it might explain why Dominion comes up so often in the discussion. Protestia took it from his now-deleted Facebook page:

Facebook friend land- open call-

If you are planning to vote for the autocratic, narcissistic, fascists, as–hat blowhard and his Christian jihadist VP pic, UNFRIEND ME NOW! No, I’m not joking. I’m all for reasoned political discourse and healthy debate- I’m looking at you ( 3 names of friends). I disagree with you three on many philosophical grounds but respect your opinions. Only and absolute F—ING IDIOT could ever vote for that wind-bag f–k-tard FASCIST RACIST F–K! No bulls–t, I don’t give a damn if you’re friend, family, or random acquaintance, pull the lever, mark an oval, touch a screen for that carnival barker—UNFRIEND ME NOW. I have no desire whatsoever to ever interact with you. You are beyond hope, beyond reason. you are controlled by fear, reaction, and bulls–t. Get your s–t together.

Oh, it that doesn’t persuade you, F–K YOU! Seriously, this f–king as–clown stands against everything that makes this country awesome! You want in on that? You deserve nothing but contempt.

We trust people like this to run the news media; why wouldn’t we trust them to count the votes?

Another alarming Coomer quote:

Joe Oltmann, founder of FEC (Faith Education Commerce) United, covertly participating in an Antifa conference call in late September, when the conversation turned to what would be done if Trump wins, heard “Eric the Dominion Guy” say (paraphrased): “Don’t worry about the election, Trump’s not gonna win. I made f–king sure of that!”

Don’t worry, the FBI and investigative journalists from Big Media will get to the bottom of this right away. Just kidding.
