Antifa’s white privilege

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 5/31/2020 5:01:29 AM

There is no right to burn down your neighborhood, but it’s always an option. Freedom means choice, and real freedom must include the choice of self-destruction — but not destroying someone else’s neighborhood. Especially not when the neighborhood is mostly black and poor. That is what the privileged whites of antifa are doing by instigating disorder and destruction in Minneapolis’s 3rd precinct and elsewhere. ‘Every single person we arrested last night, I’m told, was from out of state,’ says Melvin Carter, Mayor of St Paul. Cost-free kicks at black people’s expense: the height of white privilege. Race is the American sickness,

"The murder of George Floyd and the fact that it took riots before his killer was charged" This an absurd and provocative statement. This is not a slam dunk case. The autopsy report already brings into question the cause and effects of what happened. To be sure, I am NOT defending the police, just realizing that the riots did not cause the charge to be leveled, evidence did and the idea that the officer is a "killer" is yet to be determined. If there is initial blame, it is on the media for pouring gas onto the fire. "They used to do it to preserve their racial privilege" This is a weird view of Antifa riots. Antifa are anarchist thugs. To say that they are targeting Black communities to preserve their privilege is mind bending. The article presents Atifa as a representative of American white society as a whole, working to undermine Blacks. This is tormented thinking. I won't call it logic because there is none. I don't know the exact makeup or purpose of Antifa but they seem to be a radical rent-a-mob. I can be sure they do NOT represent American white society or any type of presumed privilege. Besides, Black society does enormous damage to itself. Whites hardly need to get involved to preserve their "standing". Blacks refuse to do what is required to rise, follow rules that apply to anyone in any society. Instead they are encouraged to chew the old bones of policies that were violently ripped out, largely by whites, over 150 years ago with no living person suffering under them. It took us a while to straighten out our relationship but a lot of progress has been made. What happened to Floyd is a tragedy. What actually happened is not clear. Shouldn't we find out before destroying whatever we can get our hands on?

Bottom line, Antifa is being paid to destroy America. The fact that they do it at black protests is just a cover - they’re taking advantage of the situation and it has nothing to do with Floyd.

My observation: Antifa is a leftwing terror organization who's stated goal is to stamp out fascism while employing fascist tactics and espousing its very own fascist idealology as mainstream. It's members are largely "woke" white morons who lack the critical thinking necessary to grasp their hypocrisy. They don't care what they do, or who they hurt. On further thinking, I don't think that they have any real goals other than destruction. If they had real goals, they would be active 24/7/365. As far as I'm concerned, they are a leftwing, democrat supported domestic terrorist organization who only come out in advance of an election where a Republican might win.

Yes, the cops might have been heavy handed. But according to the autopsy, Floyd had some health issues that contributed to his demise. But of course that isn't good enough for the family, so they are getting another independent autopsy done. If the Officer did something wrong in the course of his duties, yes he needs to be punished. But to scapegoat the guy when there are other issues involved, that hangs some nasty labels on the black community that they are trying to avoid. Like railroaders of the innocent, lynch mob, and so on. The bigger problem I see is that Marxists are using this outrage to achieve their own agenda. Way too much selectivity going on here for this to be truly protesting. And the media along with the Democrat Party is supporting and enabling it all.

There was a Northwestern professor on NPR this morning saying it was the Police who were doing the violence, and the 'protesters' were destroying property because it was the only way to make their point. Really.

Bravo Sierra. Mayor Carter had to walk back his allegation that the violent rioters arrested were from elsewhere. The local TV station actually sent a reporter to eyeball the police blotter and lo and behold- 85% of the perps were from right there in MSP. They toss this meme around everywhere to dodge responsibility that many of the Protestors are the same as Rioters. And what kind of Saint is George Floyd? he committed his last felony- of many, many-just minutes before his unfortunate death. Did five years time in TX pen for home invasion. Some bloody saint.

There’s nothing like a row between Twitter and President Trump to turn everyone into an expert on 47 U.S. Code § 230, a heretofore obscure section of federal law that deals with liability protections for companies like Twitter. Go on social media right now and you’re bound to find friends, neighbors, and colleagues opining on federal statutes and citing old Supreme Court cases to bolster their arguments that we have to do this or that right now to save the internet or protect free speech. So let me just say up front, I am not an expert on Section 230 or on federal liability law generally.

Watching the Minneapolis Police Department abandon its precinct to the torch and crowbar-wielding peaceful protesters in that Democrat-run state and city, my first thought was that I should disarm. After all, I have been reliably informed by our smart and competent elite betters that I don’t need firearms because the police will protect me, and I am sure that even though they can’t defend their own police station they will absolutely defend me, my family, and our pet unicorn Chet. Confusingly, I have also been reliably informed that the police are evil monsters of racism and badness and that they should be the only ones with guns

Eight states and Washington, D.C., will hold primaries on Tuesday, marking the busiest electoral day since the start of the coronavirus outbreak in mid-March. Besides presidential contests, the races include a number of congressional primaries, which could have implications for the fight to control the House and Senate in November. In Iowa, Rep. Steve King (R) will fight to defend his House seat from a GOP challenge from businessman Randy Feenstra, who has been backed by much of the Republican establishment.

Federal, state, and local officials urged U.S. citizens for months to stay indoors to slow the spread of the coronavirus. But now that densely-packed mobs have plunged major cities into mayhem, it’s going to be much harder to enforce lockdowns or social distancing. Initially, political leaders said shutdowns were temporary expedients to ensure that infections were spread out over a longer period of time so that when there was a peak, the case count was low enough that it wouldn't overwhelm hospitals and trigger a collapse of the medical system. Once that goal was achieved, however, leaders remained illogically reluctant to reopen the economy and transitioned from talking about hospital

When the Justice Department filed a motion to dismiss the charges against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, it didn’t expect much pushback. Instead, the judge in the case declined the dismissal, opened up a separate investigation into Flynn and hired a high-profile defense attorney for himself. The district court judge, Emmett Sullivan, has hired attorney Beth Wilkinson to represent him as the Flynn case moves forward, a highly unusual decision for a judge. Wilkinson is known for representing people in high-profile cases; She is the same attorney who represented Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his nomination process.

Law enforcement is a vital response to any riotous uprising. Indeed, I believe the failure to enforce the laws without apology from the start of the upheaval last week has fueled its ferocity. It would be naïve to claim that much of the violence, which is being incited and coordinated by radical groups, might not have happened anyway — these groups are always on a hair-trigger, pouncing on any opportunity to make mayhem. But how badly things get out of control has a lot to do with the resolve of state and federal law enforcement. The laws do not enforce themselves. Progressive dogma notwithstanding, rioting spearheaded by radicals
Misquoting MLK to Legitimize Violence 7 replies

It was inevitable that George Floyd’s death would spark protests against police brutality, and that mendacity would characterize the attendant media coverage. True to form, the press affected dismay when the demonstrations devolved into violence, yet reported the riots with obvious approbation. The most obscene example of this was the widespread use, in headlines and ledes, of an out-of-context Martin Luther King quote suggesting that the civil rights leader would have condoned the mayhem. USA Today, for example, ran a feature story bearing the following title: “‘A riot is the language of the unheard’: MLK’s powerful quote resonates amid George Floyd protests.” This grotesque misrepresentation of Dr. King’s views

George Orwell’s timeless admonition, “Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them,” has been given new life by the desperate efforts of pundits, scholars and Twitter blue-checks to defend the violence, looting, disorder and general monstrousness that have overtaken America’s cities. The glorification of mob violence and petty criminality that was one of the disgraceful hallmarks of bien-pensant thinking throughout the 20th century resonates through every tweet, ­every deep TV observation and every piece of writing that casts the coast-to-coast destruction and anarchy in a positive light. A Northwestern University journalism professor named Steven Thrasher took to Slate to offer this analysis:

As observed in New York City and elsewhere, groups in D.C. are planting cars filled with incendiary materials for future use, Fox News is told. U.S. Marshals and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents have been deployed to the streets of D.C. in an extraordinary move to beef up security alongside local police and Homeland Security agents, including the Secret Service, the Justice Department confirmed late Sunday.

Few American days were starker in their contrasts of hope and horror. Saturday, after all, saw the dichotomy of a bold American leap into space, and a brutal lurch into profound civil unrest. The horror of mass rioting in more than 30 major cities absorbed the nation's attention. Hundreds were arrested, perhaps thousands, with some of the nation's most famous streets became scenes of unbridled battle. The saturation of cell phone video cameras gave us a running tally of the mayhem. Imagery of burning police cars, smashed out windows, and warring Americans. Of camouflaged soldiers moving to support overwhelmed civil authorities. Of hyperventilating partisans on Twitter.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

Sunday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the violence during the protests over the death of George Floyd was in part because President Donald Trump demonized peaceful protests, including former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the National Anthem.

We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.

A grand coalition of its enemies is taking advantage of the weakness and frustration created by the lockdown of the economy and ordinary life, the protests triggered by video of lethal barbaric cruelty of a then-police officer, and the economic desperation and frustration that has multiplied over a quarter century of de-industrialization and widening class divisions as globalization has transformed our economy.
