This may be a stale observation, but has anybody noticed that the major riots on the west coast have NOT been in the state capitals? Rather, the riots have been in the centers of economic production.
The left assumes they own the arms of government and are now attacking the normal, productive people. This has never been about "politics". It has been about attacking and seizing the means-of-production by threat-and-coercion, a classic Marxist tactic.
Things will get sporty when the extreme elements of the left get pissed at the ones in power "just giving lip-service" and the riots swing to Olympia, Salem and Sacramento.
I am truly surprised we haven't seen the media blame this all on disgruntled Trump supporters and Right-Wing White supremacists.ReplyDelete
Oh, they did. The Minneapolis riots were blamed on "Buggaloo Boys." A few others too, if I'm remembering correctly from over the summer. It was all "peaceful protesters" except for the violence instigated by right wing white nationalists.Delete
The rioters won't because, as we have seen in Washington DC, the politicians will over-protect 'their' cities.ReplyDelete
For a real thrill, I want to see the thugs march into the real centers of production; the agricultural regions of WA, OR, CA. Or, even the oil refineries thereof. Of course they won't. Its easy to be a Marxist in a socialist city.ReplyDelete
Same reason PETA throws red paint on old ladies wearing fur coats, and not Hell's Angels wearing leathers.Delete
The sooner the better. For added contrast, the right wing groups need to develop contingency plans for mobilizing to old age homes for community outreach when the protests start at the capitols - and make sure to get local news coverage.ReplyDelete
HUH ? Your comment lost me. WHAT about the old-age homes ? RE-read your comment and try to re-word it to make more sense to us regular people. You left out a few needed words which would have made your statement clearer.Delete
Not sure, but what I think Aggie is suggesting is that when Antifa starts burning cities, Patriots deploy in a defensive perimeter around old folks homes. Both for general optics and for providing maximum contrast between the supposedly 'peaceful' Left (burning cities) and the supposedly violent Right (protecting those unable to protect themselves). Perhaps not a bad idea.Delete
Not so much seizing as threatening and destroying. As for location they seem to prefer a DA and mayor that do catch and release. Would state Attorney Generals have a say charges at state capital grounds? I can't think of any State Attorney Generals that Soros has bought. MikeReplyDelete
Do some homework. The riots occur in areas designated as economic development zones, in 2008 a change to the tax code allowed a tax write off if capital gains were reinvested in economic development. It is now to the advantage of tech moguls to reinvest in the same areas where property prices just happen to be in the basement due to the riots. (What am amazing alignment of the stars for the very wealthy investors)ReplyDelete
