Well of course you would say that......racist, fascist, homophobic propagandist that you are.

Always wondered how you escaped “antisemite” in those shotgun blasts?

DonB 304pm - and some naifs still think that the 3am SWAT teams won't be there to arrest them if the Dems can pass a new spate of 'anti-insurrection' laws.

Don 3:04 - Idiots think they can brown-nose between Biden's cheeks and maybe still get invited to the DC cocktail circuit. No - I don't think any swat team will ever show up at their house. That would be a waste of time. These weenies are useful tools for the LSM. They'll probably end up being the equivalent of the Vichy govt in France.
The Dems can say - "see, we even let an opposing party exist".
I'm sure they will have their little data base - they'll need it to sell to the Dems to raise their cash.

Biden’s new Chief of Staff calling for a “cleansing” of the Republican Party. Interesting a guy with his background calling for pogroms.

George, I did not find the list you spoke of regarding "The Great Conservative Purge". All I found was one, count him, one Yahoo journalist with an opinion.

re the Union ed.
Sooooo much BS, but the biggest thigh slapper:

Wait for it

Say it in a stern authoritative voice.

"As long as it works according to the rules that we all must obey."

'All'?
Like the govt officials that lie under oath and are never charged?
Like rioters trying to burn down buildings with people inside who are let go without charges?
Like millions of people entering the country illegally and are given tax payer protection and free goodies?
People who destroy public property and are never even arrested or charged?
'All'?
If the authors of this drivel didn't like what they saw in our nation's capitol, they should have objected to the same lawlessness that strikes directly at our rule of law a long, long time ago.
It's way too late, now.

George Rebane

D 455pm - of what list did I speak? But you can look at BarryP's 304pm citation. I believe the Lincoln Project is a progressive activists' website of anti-Trump former Republicans. Yours is only to show that they made no such list of people to be held accountable, shrink away in silence. They assert that all MOCs not willing to convict Trump should be considered and indicted as "co-conspirators" - today that is a long list.

Dark Days indeed. This speaks for itself about the character of our thankfully soon to be former President.

President Donald Trump would repeatedly tweet "LAW & ORDER" while running for re-election and before being banned from the social media website for inciting violence.

But his purported support for police was called into question on Saturday, which was coincidentally, "Law Enforcement Appreciation Day."

After Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick was murdered during Wednesday's insurrection by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol, Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker Nancy Pelosi called his grieving family to offer their condolences.

"President Trump has not ordered the flags on federal buildings to fly at half-staff in honor of Brian D. Sicknick, a police officer who was killed after trying to fend off pro-Trump loyalists during the siege at the Capitol on Wednesday," The New York Times reported Saturday. However, Trump did not offer his condolences.

"While the flags at the Capitol have been lowered, Mr. Trump has not issued a similar order for federal buildings under his control. A White House spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment."

George Rebane

re D 750am - There is nothing in the Rand report to support such a conclusion. But an astute reader would have picked up from the report the established fact of ongoing Russian interference attempts in our elections going back decades, supporting what we have informed readers about for years and giving complete lie to the recent Dem hysteria and lies about Trump colluding with the Russians - something that the local lackies were deliriously echoing as RR comment streams have archived. A reasonable contribution to such deficits in their understanding is that they are not very good readers. (Another skill that their union schools have short-changed America's students.)

fish

Hey? What’s a Chip Wilder?

Bonnie

What’s going on now reminds me of a story I wrote years ago because of an old newspaper I’d found and saved, and what a Russian relative told us about his family escape from Russia.

“Many years ago I was looking through an old file in which I’d stored interesting stories accumulated over the years. What caught my eye was the front page headline of the July 29, 1934 San Francisco Chronicle: “World Laughed at War Rumors After Assassination of Archduke.....Shot that Set Globe Afire Forgotten by Press in Week While Powder Box Sizzled…Europe Hate, Fear Led to Bloody Bath...” Included was this picture of the Archduke and his family. What fascinated me most about finding this (and deciding to write about it) was that last century’s European wars apparently began and continued in and around Serajevo, Bosnia until President Clinton's United Nation's intervention. According to the article, it was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (nephew of the Austrian Emperor and heir to the throne) and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg (June 28, 1914) that ignited the political fires of the holocaust.

Looking back I feel fortunate to have personally known people who lived in Europe during that period. Uncle Pete Gossman's "holocaust escape" story surfaced during Thanksgiving dinner many years ago. He surprised us when he asked, "Would you like to hear about the best meal I ever had?"
I don't think any of us imagined what he had in store for us. His story began around the time when the Russian revolution was just starting. Two of his father's older brothers...or Pete's two uncles lived in America, but Pete lived with the rest of the family on a farm near a little village by the Volga River. There was very little communication with the rest of the world and it was his father's custom to buy a newspaper and catch up on the news whenever he took his produce to the city down river. During one of these trips (in 1918) he read news that the tsar's family had been murdered. This made him uneasy, along with the fact that the value of paper money was dropping. He felt that some bad things were about to happen, so made plans to leave Russia as soon as possible. He began selling everything they owned for...gold. The last thing he sold was the family cow. The money had become so worthless that it filled a big sack he carried home over his shoulder. Pete's mother made herself a heavy burlap/ canvas type dress, and sewed the gold dust into the large hem at the bottom. Then they all dressed in layers of clothing to protect themselves from the bitter cold during the long journey ahead.

When they finally reached the border they were detained by German soldiers, who insisted they have physical examinations to see if they were healthy. The idea was to declare the youngest child "sick" as an excuse to keep them there long enough to make them spend all their money while waiting to leave. Finally, they were released and loaded onto a boxcar with many others leaving the country. The children were placed in the back by the wall. Pete said it was so cold that every morning his mother would gently break their clothes loose from where they had frozen to the wall. Periodically the train would stop for wood to fuel the engine. The adults would leave the train to relieve themselves, and the train would start up and begin moving...with many running to catch it. Some had frozen limbs and eventually died before reaching their destination in Poland.

When the train reached the Polish border, it stopped, the doors were opened, and a long line of soldiers faced the length of the train. Everyone was forced to undress and be searched. Everything of value (including the women's combs in their hair) was taken as "booty" by the soldiers. These were hard times, and all those affected by the revolution were prey. No one suspected that there was gold safely sewed in the hem of Pete's mother's ugly dress. Satisfied, the soldiers finally let the travelers dress and leave.

During the journey, all they had to eat were hard crusts of bread they sucked on before going to sleep. Pete's mother would cover their heads with a cloth so that the rats wouldn't hurt them. However, they could hear and feel them scurrying over their bodies looking for food. He remembers that the best meal he ever had was after they got to Minsk. His mother managed to get work and bought some small potatoes and lentils, from which she made a stew. The hot, meager meal was delicious, and something he will never forget. In 1923 the family reached England, where they were able to book passage on a ship bound for America...thanks to the efforts of the two older sons already living here.

Needless to say, Uncle Pete's story was riveting. He couldn't have picked a better time to tell it. Our Thanksgiving had more meaning in that it made us conscious of how precious life is, and how circumstances can suddenly change when political ideologies become violent. Uncle Pete had experienced the best and worst or two worlds.”

On any given Sunday.......His Assholiness, His Dishonable Dischage, His Lardship, the Royal We, Ms. Wacky Woke shows up.

DC with the runs @ 9:26 am

Let’s see. Tearing down statues and monuments to the founding fathers, book burning, erasing people for ideology differences, erasing all history, wide spread censorship, enemies lists, re-educate the children to make them hate what the ideals and principles this nation was founded upon, being vehemently opposed to individual rights, civil liberties, the US Constitution, and knee jerk reaction against religion and property rights, class warfare and class envy, change the meaning of words, control the langauge, control the news and information through Main Steam Pravda, infinitum.

If that does not replicate every single Communist country on the planet, then please point to my wayward thinking. To be fair, Steve believes the capitalistic system is the best method to deliver goods and services in the world....albeit as CEO he refused to hire a POC for years as he went around in circles hearing dog whistles in the air and calling everyone but himself a racist.

So,you are indeed Commie Bastards. You are the baby killers. Next up, kids turning in parents for wrong thinking. The Salem Witch Trails have begun, the Commie’s Inquisition. FU, Commie Bastards.

Now,I can understand some old dried up crack on some alternative underground news like Democracy Now or failed Air America’s Rachard Madcoww or every single sheet stain on CNN spouting the Commie mantra....for a lot of money. Especially the Red Chinese party line.
They love that song and dance and remain silent on the death camps. That comes with the censorship, deceit, Rules for Radicals, baby killer territory. I accept that.

But, then it comes to the Big Three networks, one would think they would not be so brazen to let the cat out of the bag and show their true anti-American deeply held believes and world view. I would have thought that the ABC’s Political Director Rick Klien would have tried to show some discretion about the Big Three’s true motives. Usually, Lamestream tries to hide and deny it, rationalize what the are doing so they can justify totalitarian authoritarian Commie Bastard behavior. But, nooooo.

‘ABC Political Director Rick Klein Calls For ‘Cleansing’ Pro-Trump Movement‘

“Republicans expressed outrage with the mainstream media for suggesting a “cleansing” of the 75 million voters who supported President Trump.”

“In a since deleted tweet posted Thursday, Klein shared an article and wrote, “Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.””

https://www.oann.com/abc-political-director-rick-klein-calls-for-cleansing-pro-trump-movement/?

Yep, getting rid of Trump after 4 years was the easy part. That is almost completed. So now, the purge is getting ratcheted up to cleanse the masses of who dared challenge the Commie Bastards.

Since Jan. 2017, Brad C and others have DEMANDED that we deplorables denounce Trump. Denounce and renounce. Criticism of policies like trade ain’t going to satisfy the Leftinistas’ unquenchable thirst for blood 🩸 to exact a pound of flesh (or two) in their fevered drive for revenge. Revenge for not agreeing with them and for slights, real and mostly imagined. A most vindictive lot as well as being the absolutely the most miserable folks you never want to meet. Whatever they got, I want no part of that steaming pile of caca-dodo. Cleanse the nation, make them pay! They MUST renounce their prior believes.

“They” are watching you, Barry. They never forget, Barry. They have big Daddy issues Barry. They are might even come over and slobber all over your flip flops as they try to gum your ankles to death.

On any given Sunday, the haters show up to puke on themselves. Commie bastards gonna hate. It’s the best they can do. Makes me feel sorry for them as well as it fills me with gratitude that I do not have to spent one millisecond in their heads. That’s one bad neighborhood inside their noggins and there is no neighborhood watch.

Bill T @ 6:10 AM:

"The ban on Twitter (of Trump) is a decision of people we don’t know in accordance with a procedure we don’t know,” he (Navalny) continued. “Don’t tell me he was banned for violating Twitter rules. I get death threats here every day for many years, and Twitter doesn’t ban anyone.”

Mr Navalny makes a good point, although he is probably incorrect since I'm pretty sure that Twitter doesn't view his death threats as anything other than the irrelevant imaginations of middle-school students.

A sad day in America - we need to have a Russian, school us on free speech. Go figure.

Barry Pruett

Yes.

“Even Russia’s leading pro-democracy dissident Alexey Navalny took to twitter to condemn the ban, calling it an ‘unacceptable act of censorship. Among the people who have Twitter accounts are cold-blooded murderers (Vladimir Putin or Nicholas Maduro) and liars and thieves (Dmitry Medvedev). For many years, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have been used as a base for Putin's ‘troll factory’ and similar groups from other authoritarian countries,’ Navalny wrote on Twitter.”

The Russians know this path by experience. The progressives are communist. Believe what the progressive communists say. Censorship. Re-education camps. American patriots must be cleansed. The progressive communists are true believers.

Here it comes......


But the Left is not being hypocritical when it condemns the Americans who stormed the Capitol Building. It is following its stated doctrine. Repressive tolerance is that doctrine, and it was developed by Herbert Marcuse in a famous article of the same name. I have twice broached the doctrine of repressive tolerance, once in Why Don’t Leftists Condemn the Violence and once in Total and Limited War and Politics. The reaction to January 6th suggests I should discuss the doctrine again.

For a detailed exposition of repressive tolerance, I refer you to my earlier articles. Here, let’s just summarize the doctrine of repressive tolerance in plain English:

Tolerance is only to be extended to truth.

Leftism is objectively true, and anything other than leftism is not.

Therefore tolerance is only to be extended to leftism.

Anyone who disagrees with this has been indoctrinated. To the extent that the majority of people disagree, that means the majority of people are indoctrinated.

Since most people are indoctrinated, leftists must break the indoctrination so that they can grasp the truth of leftism.

To break the indoctrination, leftists must promote left-wing thought and suppress right-wing thought.

Promoting left-wing thought is accomplished by changing “established universes of meaning” and actively presenting “information slanted in the opposite direction,” e.g. by political correctness and propaganda.

Suppressing right-wing thought is accomplished by withdrawing the freedom of speech, press, and assembly for anyone who disagrees with leftists on race, gender, religion, armament, public services, social security, or healthcare, e.g. deplatforming us entirely.

If necessary to withdraw these freedoms, leftists must operate at such scale that the actions cease to be non-violent and become revolutionary violence. Leftists who use revolutionary violence are not to be condemned by any leftists.

In brief, the doctrine holds that left-wing speech, assembly and even violence must be praised and promoted; while right-wing speech, assembly, and especially violence must be condemned, suppressed, and punished.

And that doctrine is being implemented 24/7/365 in the aftermath of January 6th.


This is why your local skin sacks have been excusing last summers BLM/Teefer antics as mere "vandalism".....because they were of benefit to the left!

Just how much destructively utter nonsense has been spouted from German "intellectuals" in the last 100 years!

Dear Dark Days Diary

I was reminiscing about the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election. The Union and Lamestream Unhinged Media ran articles and opinions how much people feared for their POC friends and relatives. What would they think. Even the Wa Compost ran an article from a rather homely writer that she could not even think of dating when her sisters were hurting across the land. The Union ran a column from a overweight gal from the Sacramento area echoing the same sentiment. She must comfort her Latinx step-daughter and friends in the homosexual community! No time to think of ourselves. People are hurting! They need Mother Hen to comfort her babies.
Like Melissa Glick yelling to “keep your hands off the children”....the children being 6’7’ 300 lbs collegiate Division 1 football players, lol. Or UCSB “Professor Porn” attacking a young girl standing quietly in the free speech zone passing out pro-life tracts. Professor Porn charged into the scene, assaulted the young lady and tore up her sign. The reason? The grossly obese Professor Porn (the name her students fondly called her) raced to the scene in a fit of rage “to protect her children, her babies”, ROFLMAO. Anyway, I have digressed per normal.

What stuck me most at the time was their constant references to the Declaration of Independence, not the US Constitution. Life, liberty, open borders, and a welcoming environment for all.

In just 4 short years, the progressives have positioned themselves to tear up the DOI. That clause in there about inalienable rights has to go. An humongous antitheses to the secular state which all Commie progressive countries share. No to inalienable rights, yes to silencing those who believe inalienable rights that proceed big government. Blasphemy! Heresy! Enemies of the State, for sure. No inalienable rights in progressive land.. Rights derive from the Great White Father in Washington, not we the people.

Silence them. Wait, silence is violence. There is good violence and bad violence. Everything is relative. Toss personal morality and ethics aside for group morality and ethics. The individual must go.....along with the antiquated racist White Supremists notion of Individual rights, inalienable rights. Tear it down.

The rioters and looters were encouraged by the President to march to the Capital after the demonstration and that he'd be marching with them.

Direct quotes from Trumps speech

"I want to thank you very much, and they go off to some other life, but I said something is wrong here, something is really wrong, can't have happened and we fight, we fight like hell, and if you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore.

Our exciting adventures and boldest endeavors have not yet begun. My fellow Americans, for our movement, for our children, and for our beloved country, and I say this despite all that has happened, the best is yet to come.

So we are going to--we are going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue, and we are going to the Capitol, and we are going to try and give--the Democrats are hopeless, they are never voting for anything, not even one vote but we are going to try--give our Republicans, the weak ones because the strong ones don't need any of our help, we're try--going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country. So let's walk down Pennsylvania Avenue".

Good short article, one of hundreds.

'Media Outrage Over Capitol Riot Isn’t About Defending Democracy, It’s About Wielding Power'
For our political and media elites, the capitol riot on Wednesday is the perfect excuse to 'cleanse' the country of Trump supporters.

"A lot of people on the right have noted the supposed hypocrisy of media elites like Klein, but it’s not really hypocrisy because Klein and his comrades don’t really have a problem with violent mobs storming into buildings and smashing windows, so long as they agree with the mob’s agenda. That’s why corporate media was so tolerant of much larger and more dangerous mobs destroying American cities for months on end last year. When Black Lives Matter rioters stormed city halls and police stations, burned down churches, and ransacked shopping districts in major U.S. cities, killing dozens and destroying livelihoods, the media offered support for the rioters’ cause, which they invoked time and again to justify their criminal acts.

That’s why CNN’s Chris Cuomo said, “Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.” That’s why his colleague, Don Lemon, compared the riots to the Boston Tea Party, saying, “This is how our country started.”

That’s why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argued “the whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable.” That’s why incoming Vice President Kamala Harris urged her supporters to contribute to a fund to pay bail for militant anarchists who set fire to Minneapolis. That’s why reporters at MSNBC and CNN described fiery, riotous scenes as “mostly peaceful protests”—sometimes while buildings and cars burned in the background."....

"But the media, which sowed the wind all year long with loose talk about riots, did far more to bring down the whirlwind on Wednesday than Trump did. When you argue for months and months that there’s nothing wrong with rioting or mob action or fighting with the police, and that we have to try to understand the rioters and their complaints, don’t be surprised if a certain segment of the population takes you at your word."

happen to think both these sets of claims, on the BLM side and the Trump side, are misguided and wrong. But not our media elites. They are squarely on the side of the BLM mob and against the MAGA mob, and they have zero interest in trying to understand why all those people showed up at the capitol on a Wednesday in January.

"They do, however, have a keen interest in cracking down on the wrong kind of mob. Their outrage isn’t just a performance or a pose. It’s also a mask hiding something worse than hypocrisy: anticipation."

Interesting times. Low information people have now decided that 'all Parler users are Nazis' and of course, you can punch a Nazi. The doxxing begins.

After a year (well, decades, but a whole lot in the last year) of Leftist building burnings and general craziness (including in multiple government statehouses and Senate offices, Supreme Court hearings, etc), 100 people or so break into the Capital. Corporatist America and it's street armies are outraged. Round 'em all up they scream. For basically the first time in modern times the right got militant. 'Right' meaning 'people who hold beliefs that were nearly universal 20+ years ago'.

Will radicalism on the right increase? Will the Biden administration and it's street armies help that along? Could be. It's all part of that great unifying effort by the new President. Given the Left's dominance, admittedly a thin dominance politically, pushing pushing pushing should make for some great TV. Just wait for Patriot Act 2.0 and the gun bans this summer.

re: BillT@9:00AM

Andy Ngo mentioned that a few days ago. I keep a pretty close eye on his Twitter feed since it's one of the few ways a person can get raw footage of what's really happening out there. Sometimes I wonder if our local folks on the left (whatever 'left' means anymore) are simply never exposed to that. Without a handful of guys like Ngo on (usually) Twitter, most of the street army news would simply fall down the memoryhole. It isn't like CNN is going to run footage of the 200th building burning and glass smashing, it's as if it never happened.

We should probably share a list of sources. I'm mostly interested in people who aggregate quotes/video of public officials and raw footage of mass behavior. Editorials are uninteresting since few of them are highly informed.

What I'm waiting for is someone with anger management issues to push back harder than merely a form of football-with-pepper-spray. It isn't like Biden is going to be able to control his shock troops.

“Sometimes I wonder if our local folks on the left (whatever 'left' means anymore) are simply never exposed to that. Without a handful of guys like Ngo on (usually) Twitter, most of the street army news would simply fall down the memoryhole.”

Agreed. While the local newspaper is reflective of living in Hillary County and now Biden County, I am still left with my jaw dropping each time I read the comments. Every darn time, no exceptions. Those who post comments actually believe the 2 billion dollars in scorched earth Antifa/BLM riots are actually damage done by the Proud Boys (whatever they have evolved into or what they stand for) or other such nonsense. They are so confident and arrogance spouting their misinformation, aka, their true ignorance of violence of the past year(s).

I have come to realize they have not been exposed to anything different than the mantra of which they parrot. And they still say to this hour, “There are good people on both sides” as if Trump was referring to and condoning racists and law breakers and bad people. Ah, heck, that has been refuted 100 times 6 ways to Sunday when taken in context. Play tape again? Argue with them? Waste of time. I know longer condemn those who are truly “not knowing”. Can’t blame them or assign nefarious motives to them when I give them more than a 9 mile wide benefit of the doubt. The truly live in blissful ignorance, so why burst their bubble. The bubble is most likely impregnable anyhow.

Their other one-liner is “kids in cages, kids in cages, kids in cages, kids in cages” to add to
refrain “Good people on both sides, good people on both sides.” I have been tempted to jump in there and state in no uncertain terms that their poster boy picture of little brown children in cages that they point to was taken in 2014. And the little girl crying for her mom who was standing 6 feet away taking to Border Patrol agents at night (darkness) getting information from Mom. Mom and little tired girl were both standing there a very few feet apart with Mom turning her back on the child to talk with the Agent.

Waste of time. “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” was the United Negro College Fund’s excellent ad campaign that ran for years. Agree with that ad campaign.

The Dark Says are still with us according to the FBI:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, stoking fears of more bloodshed after last week’s deadly siege at the U.S. Capitol.

An internal FBI bulletin warned that, as of Sunday, the nationwide protests may start later this week and extend through Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration, according to two law enforcement officials who read details of the memo to The Associated Press. Investigators believe some of the people are members of some extremist groups, the officials said. The bulletin was first reported by ABC.

“Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the U.S. Capitol from 17 January through 20 January,” the bulletin said, according to one official. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Interesting if true. If they are sizable, thinks could get frisky, especially considering the high likelihood of the Biden Street Army showing up to give the Rednecks what fer.

Who knows, we might actually end up with a radical right out of all of this, although 'radical right' means 'stuff all people used to think not so long ago', genuwine Nazis being rather thin on the ground and all. I don't doubt we are rapidly approaching the point where folks in black hoodies can't just burn business districts to the ground willy nilly.

The communists don’t realize that it is not trump the people support per se. Trump says out loud what his supporters all know. Trump tells his supporters what they have wanted to hear for over 30 years. The people are in charge, and if you had any doubts whether there is a deep state, it is abundantly clear now that there is and such deep state is usurping the will of the people. The government is too big and too powerful and folks are getting red pilled daily.
