They’re giving President Trump a lot of heat for even mentioning them… but who ARE they?
It’s funny how willing the media are to excuse the people they feel they can exploit for political advantage.
They’re happy, for instance, to talk about pulling down statues, but not so quick to talk about the members of an ACTUAL Communist movement that orchestrated it.
Or when it came to light that the violence at Trump rallies before the election was actually STAGED by Democrat operatives?
Even the events at Charlottesville had some things that didn’t quite add up:
The Charlottesville ‘KKK/Fascist Leader’ Was An Obama Supporter
Yeah, that’s weird.
But the strangest thing is not how they are denouncing the White Supremacists (those racists are slugs that deserve our contempt.)
It’s how they are bending over backward NOT to say anything bad about the group on the other side. Like the ‘Alt-Left’ Trump mentioned at the speech he took so much heat over.
In Boston today, there are about 15,000 communists, socialists and leftist anarchists, marching without a permit, and a tiny group, reportedly three dozen free speech people rallying with a permit in Boston Commons. The media is calling the free speech protesters alt-right but there’s no evidence they are.
…KKK, supremacists and Nazis were told to not attend the rally by the organizers.
…The communists and other leftists, including Antifa and BLM [Black Lives Matter] are being called “counter protesters” by the media and the free speech supporters are being called “supremacists”.
Many Antifa and Black Lives Matter [BLM]were bussed in together. – Full Article: Independent Sentinel
They get to be called ‘counter-protesters’.
Such an ennobling name for such a feral group of malcontents.
Alt-Left isn’t an official group or title, it’s a catch-all phrase calling out Violent Leftist hate groups that wrap themselves in ‘social justice’ causes to make themselves seem more palatable to to people who don’t read further than the headlines and slogans.
We’ve seen these guys before, in Portland, for example:
Having a bag of bricks on a rooftop? That can kill someone. Anonymously.
(Which is sort of the point, right?)
And less than a day after 6 — SIX! — cops were shot on duty… two fatally, we see this:
‘Cops and Klan go hand in hand.’ Nice.
Here is a Tweet in Boston.
These are not people who are fans of law and order. Or ‘justice’, either.
And Nancy Pelosi, other Democrats, and the news making unfounded BS statements about racism in the White House isn’t helping any.
We are being played by the people (including foreigners) financing Antifa, BAMN and all these other hate groups who would rather see America fight each other than stand together as one.
Becuase no foreign power can stand against a unified America.
But if we are a house divided against ourselves?
That’s another story.
In a quote attributed to Lincoln:
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
This one is likely more authentic but says the same thing, even more pointedly.
This chain of events is the context for the Lyceum speech, and especially this passage: “…whenever the vicious portion of [our] population shall be permitted to gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and burn churches, ravage and rob provision stores, throw printing-presses into rivers, shoot editors, and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure and with impunity, depend upon it, this government cannot last.” –
