Left Amps Up Justifications For
Violence Against Their Political Opponents

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 7/4/2019 5:23:51 AM

Over the weekend, the Washington Post published an opinion article written by Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. Wilkinson famously kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family last June over what Wilkinson felt was a moral obligation to stand up to the Trump administration. The restaurant owner not only ejected Sanders, but followed her into another restaurant to continue the harassment. Wilkinson doubled down on her actions in her Washington Post article, claiming that all restaurants and businesses have a moral obligation to prevent dissenters from participating in public life because, as she said, “this isn’t about politics.

I didn't know the Red Hen owner had followed Ms. Sanders to another restaurant to continue the harassment. This makes it much worse. This is stalking and menacing. It took a generation, but this behavior is now considered normal.

#1, the Red Hen owner did follow Sarah and her family to another restaurant screaming. It wasn't bad enough that this wacko owner ran Sarah out of her restaurant, she had to STALK Sarah to another location. As I said in my past posts concerning this owner of the Red Hen, I hope everyone stops going to her restaurant and she goes bankrupt. What an evil person she is.

We are already at the formerly unimaginable point where physical violence against someone MAGA occurs and no Democrat or Enemedia agent will condemn it. It isn't hard to foretell what the next stage will be.

Socialism requires social pressure, oppression and coercion to implement its policies because free people will not give up their property willingly. Once in power the State can then officially enforce its policies by creating a police state. Oppression of a free people by a socialistic government will always descend into fascism. The brainwashed morons currently enjoying inflicting violence on others with impunity are just the beginning. It is frightening to see how easily a city government can cause the police to standby while masked hoodlums assault innocents without provocation as happened recently in Portland OR.

I do dine at home, Ms. Wilkinson, and I am a 100% Trump supporter. And hey, I do hate--the left, only because the left wants to use violence and government force to take my property and liberties, and they expect me to be silent while they do that, which is not going to happen.

These attempts to intimidate Trump's team or anyone whose views differ from the left's are just a warmup to much more extreme violence that will be aimed at us leading up to November 2020 and beyond. More Antifa cells are forming and they will taunt, maim, and kill. Unless they are dealt with in kind. Get your conceal carry permit and know how and when to use your weapon. Have an attorney familiar with your local gun laws in your back pocket to represent you should you experience the need to fire at someone who threatened your life.

The thing that is so funny is that President Trump shamed this woman into cleaning her filthy restaurant! Pictures of some young snowflake washing the windows, and reports of the kitchen being cleared of rat carcasses and dead (and live) roaches. Sanders is lucky that she didn't eat there after all. Probably would have gotten sick!

" 'Red' Hen, " how appropriately named. The evil Department of Education and the Education mafia across this once great land have un-informed a generation of children in this nation all about the value of socialism, and that communism wasn't really as bad as those evil right-wingers say it was. They are mongrels of education now and know no other way. It's now easy to grow them into Antifa mobs, because they've been told over and over again how "cool" all those Vietnam war protests really were (educators were never there either, but I digress), so wouldn't it be something to be a part of a "new" history-making event? Then there's the love for Woodstock amongst all the overage Hippies who lead the universities and bureaucracies. They long for another "take drugs and do whatever" moment, as do their young students (your children). Every major city in this country is a haven for liberalism and a tender-box for revolutionary thought and action. This reaction against this President is getting stronger and will eventuate in more Antifa-style uprisings, and once those uprisings catch the attention of the excitement deprived youth who long to be part of "history" then full scale revolts could take place over any stated issue, be they, reparations, universal health care, homo rights, immigration, you name it. This is going to be a very, very "hot" summer.

You gotta hand it to them – it’s an innovative strategy to run for President by taking the position that your country is garbage and that its are people deplorable monsters. It’ll be interesting to see how the Democrats fare on their “America sucks!” platform. The last week has seen Team Donkey take brave stands against the flag and celebrating our military, and you would half expect them to next advocate something insanely suicidal, like taking your health insurance or forcing you to pay for illegal aliens’ doctors.

The few sane Democrats still left in Washington are starting to sweat. Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s chances of winning the Democratic nomination appear to be thinning faster than his head of hair. And they don’t make hair plugs for that kind of problem. One minute he’s reminiscing about the good ol’ days when he got along so well with all the racist segregationist Democrats around here. Then he gets into strange arguments about federally forced busing — because that’s what the people are all talking about these days. Next, Mr. Biden is rambling on and on and on about how Russia is meddling in everybody’s elections. “You think that would happen

Justice has seemed elusive these past three years. One of the most discouraging themes has been the pattern of powerful white men who seem to get away with sexual misconduct and even criminal behavior toward women and young girls: Donald Trump, Roy Moore, Brett Kavanaugh, among them. Some days, it feels like the idea of “justice” is non-existent when it comes to this type of powerful perpetrator and conduct. The case of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, thus far, is one of the most egregious examples. Epstein actually got caught: he was arrested and charged last decade by federal authorities for running a sex-trafficking operation in which minor girls

“Mexican immigration over the border is a good thing,” the late Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman said in a famous 1978 lecture, before stipulating, “but it’s only good so long as it’s illegal.” Friedman, a libertarian icon and champion of the economic benefits of free immigration, had very little in common with today’s Trumpists on this issue. But he explained a paradox of illegal immigration this way: “as long as it’s illegal the people who come in do not qualify for welfare, they don’t qualify for Social Security, they don’t qualify for all the other myriads of benefits that we pour out from our left pocket into our right pocket,

Joe Biden has many problems right now, not the least of which is his surviving son, Hunter Biden, or as I now refer to him, Hunter S. Biden. This new moniker is of course in homage to the late writer Hunter S. Thompson, who wrote several great books, among them “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” a quasi-fictional account of his drug-crazed adventures. By way of coincidence, the new issue of The New Yorker has what is I presume a fairly accurate account of Hunter S. Biden’s drug-crazed adventures almost a half-century later. As I read the magazine piece, I was amazed at the similarities between the two Hunters.

Joe Biden says he has nothing to atone for over his opposition to school busing in the 1970s. He adds that this is an issue with which 99 percent of Americans are unfamiliar. Biden is right on the first count. He need not apologize for opposing a regime that was unwise and unpopular. Good for him for refusing to do so. I would be more impressed if he didn’t couch his refusal in an assertion that the public is ignorant. As to whether the public is as ignorant as Biden says, it may have been true two weeks ago that few Americans were familiar with the busing issue.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.
