In North Carolina, Arizona, and Indiana, Republican Party offices have been terrorized. That’s right. Terrorized. What else do you call firebombings and bricks thrown through windows?
If It Were Black Churches or The Cops
If black churches in three states had been attacked over the course of a few days, or if a police officer shot a black man, the Department of Justice would have dispatched investigators. The media would have run wall to wall coverage. Barack Obama would have had something inappropriately biased to say about it.
Instead, the silent response to political terrorism in the United States is deafening. There are allegations that Trump misbehaved with the opposite sex. One major network devoted more air time to the first ever three-way tie on “The Price Is Right” than to the latest round of Wikileaks data dumps. And there are articles – pretending to be investigative journalism – that insist it’s impossible to rig a US election.
Rigged Elections Are One Problem
Yes, elections can be and are rigged. Democrats agreed with this four years ago. In 2012 they wanted United Nations monitors posted at US polling places. What those monitors were going to monitor isn’t clear. 2012 was the election that featured anomalies such as entire major cities (i.e., Philadelphia) reporting every vote cast for Barack Obama – a statistical impossibility. There were other areas that reported more ballots cast than there were registered voters. 2008 was similar – voters were bused in and warehoused in Ohio homes to ensure the electoral scales were tipped a certain way in that vitally important swing state.
Consider too the number of states that don’t require voters to present a photo ID to cast their ballot. How it’s racist to ask someone to show a photo ID I’d love to know. It seems the opposite would be true – that it would be racist to assume people of color are too inept to acquire a photo ID. Besides, think of all the other things photo ID’s are required for. We require a photo ID to board a plane, buy alcohol or tobacco products, rent a car, check into a hotel, use a credit card or write a check, and so on.
It’s somehow not racist for a black person to fly coast to coast, arrive and rent a car then check into a hotel, head down to the store and buy a six pack and some Camels, and pay for it all with a credit card. But it is racist to ask for the same black person to present the same photo ID when he or she walks two blocks down the street to vote?
Yes, elections are rigged and that’s just one problem. The other is political terrorism.
From Rent-a-Mobs to Firebombs
If a picture is worth a thousand words, undercover video ought to be worth volumes of information. Recent undercover video proves that the Democratic Party – and Hillary’s campaign – was involved in creating violence at Trump events. This isn’t a conspiracy theory. Nor is it some cobbled together assessment. The smoking gun can be seen and heard on the videos. One of our two major parties arranged for mobs to riot in the streets, vandalize, loot, and assault people in the name of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The easy dismissal is to say “well those rioters and stuff were just the fringe and both parties have their fringe elements”. If that’s true, then the appropriate name for those contracted by the Democratic Party to disturb the peace should be called Hillary Clinton extremists. In any case, there has been but once instance in which Trump supporters engaged is anything approaching similar behavior.
At a Trump event in California, after previous Trump events had been interrupted by Hillary Clinton extremists in places like San Jose where local officials refused to protect Trump supporters, a progressive mob showed up to cause mayhem. Since local officials – Democrats in the tank for Hillary Clinton – refused to intervene, Trump supporters decided to protect themselves. And they did. They quickly dispersed those intent on destroying things and hurting people.
This has gone on for so long – almost the whole of Obama’s tenure – leftist activism has become something of a cottage industry. There are people that actually consider it their vocation. Consider for example that 70% of rioters arrested in Charlotte had out of state photo IDs (and not out of state as in South Carolina). As with Ferguson, Baltimore, Oakland, San Jose, and everywhere else, those that showed up to destroy were hired hands who literally travel America in search of places to terrorize.
(By the way, apparently it isn’t racist to present a photo ID after being arrested while rioting).
Colleges and universities teach it too. Ideas like safe zones, trigger warnings, and all the rest inform young adults that silencing an uncomfortable point of view is an acceptable, mature response. The remaining, permissible point of view allowed to prevail is uniformly leftist and only nuanced by its distance from centrist political positions.
No wonder in three states individuals felt empowered to engage in political terrorism against ideas that challenge their own.
What About Real Terrorists?
Don’t radical Islamic terrorists present a more dire threat to this country than Hillary Clinton extremists, the liberals might ask in their attempt to shift attention back towards a more comfortable monologue. Well:
– Is there or isn’t there a threat posed by radical Islam?
– Is ISIS on the run or not?
– Don’t terror attacks in Europe prove that we’re winning?
– Lone wolves, and not an interconnected threat, commit acts of terror right?
– Hillary insider (and prospective White House Chief of Staff should she win the Presidency) John Podesta wished that the San Bernardino terrorists were white.
We have the ability to deal with the radical Islamic terror threat. But an insider threat posed by a major party going rogue could end our democratic processes as we know them.
