The Democrats commenced their “summer of resistance” today, June 3rd 2017, which presumably follows their spring resistance events and will precede their “fall of resistance” and predictable $19.99 Winter Holiday Resistance gift set featuring surplus Hillary campaign stuff.
The UK experienced a terrorist attack. Three attacks in ten weeks.
A Democrat attending today’s “summer of resistance” demonstration in Washington, DC let the cat out of the bag.
She said that their goal was for investigations to find something with which Trump could be impeached. In other words, investigations shouldn’t be fact finding mechanisms but rather, need to come up with something – anything – to support impeachment of President Trump. It’s not just guilty until proven innocent. It harkens back to Saddam Hussein’s legal system in Iraq which presumed every Iraqi guilty and the Mukhabarat (Secret Police) available to detain threats to the regime accordingly based on presupposed guilt.
In London, a group of individuals went on a mass stabbing spree as well as a van attack on the iconic London Bridge. This comes hot on the heels of the Manchester attack which comes hot on the heels of whatever and where ever the next most recent attack happened to be. People died. People are wounded. The very fabric of western life is under threat.
If it hasn’t happened already, the mainstream media and celebrities will a) wonder whether the attackers were Brexiters, or Trump supporters, or white nationalists and b) embark upon the usual rounds of commemorative hashtags and can’t-we-all-love-each-otherisms. There won’t be an initial claim of responsibility from ISIS. The media will use this. When ISIS claims responsibility, the media will say ISIS always claims responsibility even for things they had nothing to with, like say, maybe the London attack?
Once eye witness accounts and video footage emerge that prove what we already know about the attackers, the media and celebrities will trot out the usual “lone wolf” argument. They’ll ignore that all these lone wolves seem to constitute a disaggregated pack. They’ll take the ideological and existential component out of the equation and fail to note that ISIS promulgates itself via the internet so while ISIS may not be a top down quasi-military force they are asymmetric and widely distributed. And then, they will push fake news telling us that all religions kill equally, or that most terror is committed by white Christians, and so it goes.
Resistance activists camouflaged as reporters will dutifully transition coverage back to Russia Trump Trump Russia Trump. The coverage will be complete with unattributed sources and clickbait lead ins that are contradicted deep down and near the end of the news items. Remember, impeachment is the goal – although the Resistance crowd doesn’t seem to realize that impeachment doesn’t mean Trump leaves office, or that Hillary becomes President. Even if Trump and Pence were ousted Paul Ryan and Orrin Hatch are next in the line of succession – our Constitution doesn’t transfer power to the number two election runner-up.
Speaking of, Hillary the human cockroach is sure to continue her…tour. The use of the word “tour” is generous. What else can one call the ever more bizarre spectacle she’s become. As of today, June 3rd, she’s managed to blame Obama, the DNC, fake news, males, black people, and Macedonia for her 2016 loss. Give her a month and she’ll be saying they faked the moon landings so that Kenyan Obama could steal 2008 AND 2016 from her.
Then, somewhere in Europe or the west, another terror attack will occur.
A shame Hillary won’t blame ISIS for it and demand collusion between radical Islamists in the west and Raqqa be investigated. Not an investigation looking to place predetermined guilt upon a preferred target. A legitimate, apolitical investigation that can honestly tell us what’s going on. That a radicalized interpretation of Islam – inspired by Iran’s export of terror post-1979 but repackaged under a Salafist brand – is in a very serious way seeking to subdue the western world through a very violent global insurgency.
On July 4th the summer of resistance will hold yet another rally of some kind. Chances are Obama’s OFA organization is already hiring activists to work the event, and that a printing press somewhere is manufacturing signs for demonstrators to demonstrate with. We’ll hear lots of faux patriotism, and discussions of isms that are imaginary.
Because we live in a climate of unseriousness. Until we address radical Islam seriously, we will never break this weird and lethal cycle in which we currently live.
