Mob Update

I only now saw the news and discovered that the mob spent today terrorizing people in residential neighborhoods in St Louis.

If you think it can’t possibly happen to you, you aren’t extremely smart. The mob doesn’t care how sweet and accommodating you think you are.

P.S. Anybody who wants to argue that people in big houses deserve to be terrorized or that it wasn’t really terrorizing is kindly asked to bugger off.

  1. From Congressman Jim Banks:

    “Let’s quit pretending that the riots happening now have anything to do with George Floyd or even race. The chaos in our streets is emblematic of something much deeper happening in our society. America is clearly undergoing an existential struggle. The important question we need to ask: What is that struggle?

    The struggle is designed to appear like good old-fashioned class warfare. But is it? Are oppressed, working peoples who live in squalor revolting against their oppressors?

    Take a closer look at the mob. A new study by Pew research says only 1/6 of the protesters is Black. 4 out of 5 are Democrats. It isn’t composed of the poor working class fighting for a livable wage. It’s the children of our nation’s elite who are playing dress-up poor and oppressed in the tradition of Woodstock or Occupy Wall Street. A viral video was shared recently of a white woman clad in $300 worth of Lululemon designer yoga apparel yelling at a Black male police officer and an Asian female police officer that “they’re part of the problem.” She’s not fighting for justice. She’s fighting to quiet her own conscience.

    This isn’t a proletarian revolution. This is a generational fight within our ruling elite class.

    For decades, the elites have taught their children that America is a bad place—it’s an evil country. They say: To be patriotic is to be ignorant about America’s many sins. Instead they bark at their kids: Be woke! Open your eyes to all that is wrong with the U.S. and its history.

    Well, the children have internalized their parents’ messages. And they’ve come to this conclusion: If you’re not actively revolting against “the system,” i.e. destroying America’s institutions, you’re enabling it. And so they’ve taken to the streets to chant “Defund the Police,” tear down our statues, loot our businesses and vandalize our churches.

    The irony is that these people are “the system.” You’ve probably received dozens of emails from multinational corporations promising to fight injustice or “systemic racism” in recent weeks. Silicon Valley executives have become quite transparently hostile towards prominent figures for failing to share the accepted talking points. The New York Times staff led a mutiny against their own opinion editor for allowing a conservative senator a platform in their pages. America’s elites are scrambling to find ways to show they’re on the side of the oppressed so that they, too, can be considered victims.

    They don’t care about producing real change—they just want to be last one in line for the guillotine.

    One writer put it this way: This is a revolution that comforts the comfortable.

    Meanwhile, the Democrat mayor of Minneapolis is still in office. The Minneapolis chief of police still has his job. Minority-owned businesses are being destroyed. Democrats stalled the best effort in Congress to deliver police reform. And George Floyd is still dead.”

    1. A key factor in a democracy is for the elite to accept it when they are outvoted. The elite have never accepted the result of the 2016 election. They have simply redoubled their efforts to impose their vision on society. When the elite no longer feel bound by the results of elections you no longer have a democracy.

      1. “When the elite no longer feel bound by the results of elections you no longer have a democracy.”

        Peaceful turnovers of power over political institutions following elections are one of the most fundamental normative foundations of liberal democracy. Trump’s 2016 voters are still waiting for this to happen.

    // St. Louis Couple Draws Weapons To Protect Home: ‘We Were All Alone Facing an Angry Mob’

    A couple in St. Louis made the rounds on social media on Sunday night after video showed them drawing their guns on a mob of protesters heading to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home. The protesters headed to Krewson’s house “to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who suggested defunding the police department.”

    The man held the rifle while the woman held a smaller gun. Pictures show the woman pointing the gun at the protesters.

    What if she murdered somebody? As LI writes: “The wife has no trigger discipline and she’s holding the gun all wrong. Also, you do not point your weapon at a target unless you would shoot said target.”

    1. Why don’t we discuss instead what would happen if the mobs murdered somebody? Wait, they actually did. They also have a cute habit of setting the homeless on fire, dragging people out of cars, and assaulting moms with little kids.

      But by all means, let’s forget all that and instead concentrate on a woman standing on her property and facing a mob.

  3. “The man held the rifle while the woman held a smaller gun.”

    Why is this even a major story? Because it serves the woke narrative of assigning guilt and virtue on the basis of skin colour. The Washington Post headline, with video/pictures prominently displayed to underline the point, is “St. Louis couple point guns at peaceful protesters”

    Meanwhile, in St. Louis, many nights of looting and shooting (with guns), only a small number of rioters have been arrested (and most later released without charge) for serious crimes against persons and property. Where are their pictures in the Washington Post and other woke media? Don’t hold your breath waiting.

    1. Completely ridiculous. People are standing on their property, in a private alley, holding whatever they are legally allowed to hold. I didn’t go trespassing on their property, so I didn’t get scandalized by whatever they are holding.

      Terrible things are happening. But we are studiously not noticing any of it and instead fretting over people who didn’t assault, loot, hit, or destroy.

  4. I tell myself it couldn’t happen in my neighborhood because my neighborhood has more firepower than the rioters. I expect we hear more gunfire around our house than an average Chicago resident 😉 I assume they’re target shooting, but who knows?
