On Point

Protests, schmotests. The NYTimes is still staying right on task of rubbishing Tara Reade:

To better understand Tara Reade, who accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, The New York Times interviewed nearly 100 friends, relatives, co-workers and neighbors and reviewed court records and her writings.

Rose McGowan – seemingly the only sincere member of #MeToo called NYTimes trash over this reporting, and I concur.

Peaceful Looting Comes to Montreal

I just saw images of my favorite stores in Montreal being “peacefully looted.”

At this point, one has to be either dangerously naive or malevolent to think this is about anything other than giving people a pretext to steal stuff.

You really need to know Montreal to understand how supremely idiotic it is to connect it to what happened in Minnesota. It’s nothing like a typical US city with an impoverished ghetto filled with black people. It’s a different planet, a different kind of police, a different kind of race relations. It has many problems of its own but it isn’t a Chicago, a Minneapolis, or an Atlanta.

There Are No Peaceful Protesters

I highly recommend that people watch this video before talking about peaceful protesters.

Do you know any of these men❓Yesterday, May 30, these men violently attacked a store owner & her husband who were trying to protect their business from being looted. Please look at the video & still images. If you know any of them, please call Crime Stoppers @ 423-9300. https://t.co/ECSNcfIcDc

There are no peaceful protesters. Everybody who joins criminals in any capacity is a criminal. And everybody would immediately see that I’m right if the attackers were wearing MAGA hats. There wouldn’t be a person alive who’d dare to make distinctions between the “good peaceful protesters” and the “bad somebody else.”

People who have a good cause they want to advance don’t run around while this is going on. They wait until the criminals are off the streets. Anybody who “peacefully” comes out right now is joining the human refuse in this video. And once again, if you aren’t getting this concept, think back to Charlottesville. If it was so easy to understand in a situation incomparably less violent, how come it suddenly got confusing?

Revenge

Here is what’s funny. The extreme left faction of the Democratic party lost its hopes of winning in 2020 because of African Americans who preferred a more moderate Biden.

And now this extreme left faction is using African Americans to punish Biden, the electorate that rejected them, and African Americans themselves.

This is why the black neighborhoods are burning and the cities controlled by establishment Democrats are being destroyed. They are the target of the rage.

These are very entitled people who don’t like to be crossed. Which in no way excuses the small minority of African Americans who took the bait and let themselves be dragged into this.

P.S. Here’s one example. A rich Ivy-educated lawyer and his lawyer girlfriend are arrested for throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police cruiser.

Let’s Move Hong Kong

Britain is prepared to offer extended visa rights and a pathway to citizenship for almost 3 million Hong Kong residents in response to China’s push to impose national security legislation in the former British colony.

The same initiative exists in the US.

This obsession to respond to every crisis by dragging millions of people across the globe as if they were furniture is truly insane.

My Question

I watched footage of the riots from around the country. Police, rioters, passersby – almost nobody wears masks, nobody at all does any social distancing.

I only have one question. If all that is ok, why can’t I go to work and teach my students? In August, in December, in May of 2021?

That’s all I want to know.

Crime Spree

It isn’t antifas, it isn’t the imaginary white supremacists, it isn’t outside agitators. And it isn’t even the Russians. Most of the rioters arrested in MN are local:

Local jail records show the vast majority of those arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly and burglary are Minnesotans.

In casting blame on those responsible for the worst damage from the riots, local and state leaders attributed it to people not from Minnesota.

But publicly available data does not support those claims, KARE 11 Investigates has found.

Riots are happening in do many places at least once that you’d need an antifa organization of a gigantic size to be everywhere at once.

This isn’t a political event. It’s a collective crime spree. And the presence of a bunch of white prep boys among crowds of looters doesn’t change that.

Police brutality, police shmutality. American police are wusses if they allow a crazed crowd to run around looting, vandalizing, stealing, and destroying for days.
