Once Again, the Left Promotes Violence Toward the Right, This Time Against Rand Paul

It wasn’t but a handful of days ago that the left and the media were losing their collective minds over a year old video of Trump’s head being superimposed over a character during a scene from a violent movie. We were told that this kind of promotion of violence was inexcusable and would only promote real-life violence.

Since then, we’ve had instances of leftists promoting violence against the right, including Antifa telling a church that they’d bring out a guillotine if they played a movie about Jordan Peterson and a woman being assaulted for being pro-Trump.

If you include all the other instances of violence being overly celebrated by the left against the right, you’ll find that the pattern is that it’s okay for the left to visit harm on the right, but the right better not even joke about doing it to the left.

We can now add Bette Midler to those who hold that position.

On Wednesday, Midler became angry over Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul calling the Kurds “ingrates” for throwing refuse at American troops despite fighting to help free them from the clutches of ISIS. Midler didn’t take that well and, instead of putting up a well thought out and reasonable argument, told everyone to be thankful for Rand Paul’s violent neighbor who assaulted him.

“I DO NOT promote violence,” began Midler before she continued by promoting violence, “but… Rand Paul says the Kurds are being “ingrates” for taking their frustrations out on US troops. Which is a good reminder for us all to be more grateful for the neighbor who beat the sh*t out of Rand Paul.”

Midler is, of course, referring to the attack on Paul by his neighbor. Paul suffered six broken ribs, damage to his lungs, and two bouts of pneumonia as a result of the attack on him. Paul described the recovery as a “living hell.”

This attack and the celebration of it is just one more example of why the left shouldn’t be taken seriously when it begins hyperventilating about “violence” from the right. Between the promotion of attacks, actual attacks, and groups like Antifa that actually promote further violence, the left has no room to talk.

This is actually the second time Midler has celebrated the violence against Rand Paul. The first was in February of last year when she asked where Paul’s neighbor was after he filibustered the Senate to stop Republicans from raising spending caps.

She’s not the only celebrity that celebrated Paul’s attack. Tom Arnold has also tweeted his approval of the violence Paul suffered, and his tweet was retweeted by Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Leftists Threaten to “Bring Out the Guillotine” If Theaters Show Jordan Peterson Documentary

Westlake Legal Group jordan-peterson-SCREENSHOT-620x349 Leftists Threaten to “Bring Out the Guillotine” If Theaters Show Jordan Peterson Documentary Violence threats Social Justice Radical Left Politics Movies mob Media Jordan Peterson Front Page Stories Free Speech Featured Story Fascism Culture & Faith antifa Allow Media Exception

Theaters in many locations are terminating their showing of the documentary “The Rise of Jordan Peterson” after receiving threats of violence.

According to The Stranger, showings in theaters in Toronto and Brooklyn had all been canceled due to complaints by staff that they were fearful of “getting in trouble.” It’s the kind of “trouble” that is seen whenever Antifa and violent leftists show up to impose their anti-fascist fascism on everyone present.

The film’s co-creator, Maziar Ghaderi was giving an interview to The Stranger when he received a text message from a pastor who had agreed to screen the film in his church after theaters refused to play it. He too had begun receiving complaints and threats.

One threat involved an “or else” kind of message, threatening that if he doesn’t obey then these radical leftists will “bring out the guillotine to fix society”:

“Fair warning,” it read, “several community organizations are planning to shut down your showing of the Jordan Peterson propaganda film. While many of us aren’t Christian and some even flat-out condemn the religion, we do not want any harm to come to your place of worship or those within. However, we cannot allow fascism to continue to rise and will not tolerate its presence in our city, whether it is on the streets or on the waterfront or in a church. Read some history books, read about eugenics, read about sex and gender and then compare it to Peterson. Pray on it if you must. Do the right thing. As much as we joke about it, we really don’t want to have to bring out the guillotine to fix society.”

Peterson, a Toronto clinical psychologist and professor, achieved international fame when he became a central figurehead in the conversation of ethics and his opposition to identity politics and political correctness. This put him square into the crosshairs of hard-left activists and protesters. This includes Antifa, who often utilize violence to silence political opposition.

The reason the hard-left becomes so vehement about Peterson’s silence is that much of what Peterson says makes sense, and as such, even members of the left find him appealing. Peterson is dangerous. He doesn’t just change minds, he changes hearts, and those are two things the radical left would like to own.

But it also exposes the weakness of their position. If they can only retaliate to Peterson’s words with violence for silence, then their arguments aren’t very good. Peterson has already won the debate.

While I doubt the radical left would pull out a literal guillotine (yet), I do believe they would resort to violence. The kind of violence that puts people in hospitals. Those screening the movie should continue to do so despite the threats, but make sure that security is a factor.

Speech shouldn’t be silenced, whether it’s Jordan Peterson or not, and shutting down showings of the movie isn’t going to progress anything forward.

Leftists Upset About Video of Trump Killing His Opposition Sure Seem Okay With Violence Against Him and His Supporters

Westlake Legal Group Capture-6 Leftists Upset About Video of Trump Killing His Opposition Sure Seem Okay With Violence Against Him and His Supporters Violence the hunt Snoop Dogg Politics meme Media kathy griffin Hollywood Front Page Stories Entertainment donald trump democrats antifa Allow Media Exception

By now, you’ve likely heard of the video that surfaced showing the scene from the movie Kingsman, where one of the main characters goes on a violent killing spree within a hate church thanks to a signal that alters brain patterns and forces people to become violent.

My colleague, Brad Slager, covers it in-depth in his article here.

The video, which has been up on YouTube for over a year, has President Donald Trump’s head superimposed on the head of the main character, and much of the people he kills during the scene to have their heads replaced with people and logos of those on the left.

You can watch it for yourself here.

The video was allegedly played at one of Trump’s Miami resorts for his supporters during a conference. Naturally, the media has lost its mind over it and has given it unmitigated attention.

Let’s get some things out of the way before I continue.

Firstly, this is clearly a meme representative of Trump fighting off his opposition, which is both numerous and vicious. It’s not going to incite violence as some on the left are claiming, it’s clearly figurative as most memes are. No one in their right mind is advocating that Trump’s opponents be brutally murdered.

Should it have been played at a pro-Trump conference? Probably not. It does feature Hillary Clinton getting run through the neck with a disassembled gun, and CNN having a wooden stake shoved into its mouth. It’s not the best way to go about a political rally. It works as a meme, but probably not as something promoted officially.

The thing is, it’s hard to take any outrage from the media seriously, seeing as how violence against Trump and his supporters is a pretty regular occurrence, and in a very official capacity no less.

Let’s take Kathy Griffin’s severed Trump head, for instance. Or the Broadway play that depicted Trump’s assassination. Or Snoop Dogg’s music video where he points a gun at Trump’s head. You can see them pictured in the tweet below in case your memory needs jogging.

The media’s certainly does.

But most of all, let’s also not forget that Universal created and was set to release a movie titled “The Hunt” before the release was canceled due to the studio believing it was “bad timing” thanks to the El Paso shooting and backlash by Americans. You may say that Universal shut the movie down because they knew it was wrong, but that’s not the case.

They signed off on the movie, spent millions of dollars making it, and had a quickly approaching release date. They only canceled it because they were afraid that the timing would make them look bad.

In short, a major motion picture studio is actually okay with violence against its, vision of what Trump supporters are being depicted, and the only coverage is got was news about its progress and hindrance, and the typical “Republicans react” style of news reporting.

What’s more, the producer of The Hunt, Jason Blum, said in an interview that if he could relive a single day over and over again, he’d “take out the current administration.” The look on his face was very serious, and even writer Christopher Landon seemed momentarily taken aback by it.

You probably didn’t hear a thing about this, though, because the left doesn’t seem to care about violent rhetoric like this if it’s geared toward Trump or his followers.

Please, spare me the outrage about this meme video. It rings so hollowly in the face of the violence that I see promoted from the left. Especially when I even carried out against Americans.

CNN’s Town Hall Learns It’s ‘Violence’ to Alter the Name of a Trans Person, and We’ve Got a New National Emergency

In the 1940’s, Americans volunteered to go overseas and have people shoot at their heads in order to defend the nation.

They faced real violence in a real war where real life hung in the balance.

Today, we’ve really lost a sense of the high stakes.

What’s important? Life. Family. Faith. Purpose.

Our society, it seems to me, is crumbling from a loss of the biggies. And it’s accompanied by an attempt to make the infinitesimal huge.

Children were once taught “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” They were made to be resilient because their self worth didn’t depend upon the opinions of others.

These days, names are putting sticks and stones to shame.

People are insisting their feelings be affirmed, because they’re owed it. Otherwise, they’re enduring paralyzing adversity.

Another wonder: The fact that they’re called “micro” aggressions, it seems to me, should be an indication that they’re…ya know…micro.

But it ain’t.

Appropos, during CNN’s Equality Town Hall Thursday night, Julián Castro got a lesson in physical force.


Singer Shea Diamond took to the mic for a question, and his name was mispronounced by the network’s Nia-Malika Henderson as “Shay”:

“I want to bring in [“Shay”] Diamond, a singer/songwriter from L.A. She currently supports Mayor Pete Buttigieg. What’s your question?”

Shea replied:

“Uh, it’s ‘Shia’ Diamond. Put that on the record. Yes, honey. It’s violence to misgender or to alter a name of a trans person, so let’s always get that right first.”

It’s violence to mispronounce someone’s name.

Watch the video above.

Fortunately for Shea, Cory Booker was there for support: The macho, physical-assault-aspiring 2020 hopeful asserted the country’s facing a “national emergency” in the area of violence against the LGBT community, and that it may in fact require a federal Office on Hate Crimes and White Supremacy.

Back to Shea, to be clear, I’m not suggesting a man identifying as a woman is the ultimate manifestation of our national weakness. It could’ve just as easily been a straight white millennial, and it has been. And it will be again.

We’re becoming crippled by the trivial.

And that is a national emergency.

Lord help us if the Japanese attack again.

Steve Kerr on Chinese human rights abuses: What about gun violence in the U.S.?

Westlake Legal Group sk Steve Kerr on Chinese human rights abuses: What about gun violence in the U.S.? Violence uighur The Blog steve kerr gun concentration camp China ar-15s

The competition has been stiff and there are still hours to go before close of business but I feel like this guy has already clinched the distinction of NBA China Cuck of the Week.

Congrats to the Warriors on their first title of 2019.

Also, I want to take this opportunity to thank Daryl Morey again for revealing how deeply unserious every woke dipsh*t in the league actually is about human rights and social justice.

Charles Cooke reframes the exchange: “Do you have views on mass concentration camps?” “No, but I’m pretty upset about the Bill of Rights.”

I’ve watched that clip three times and can only conclude that what we’re seeing is a Pavlovian response in action. The subject of injustice is raised and, like a well-trained dog salivating at the sound of a bell, this chump simply cannot help but think of gun violence and American abuses. A few days ago he pleaded ignorance when asked about China — he doesn’t know the history, it’d be unfair to comment without being fully informed, etc. But the media kept ringing the bell by asking him about human rights. He was destined to start drooling on himself eventually.

The best part — besides the classic whataboutist line, “none of us are perfect” — is Kerr noting that Chinese fans and media have never pressed him about injustice in the United States. Any theories about why that might be? Why wouldn’t inhabitants of a totalitarian state, which is right now carrying out a program of mass internment, be eager to start visiting westerners chattering about human rights?

You know who he sounds like here? Our “America First” president, who made a similar point in defense of his wish for warmer relations with Russia in 2015. “He’s running his country and at least he’s a leader, unlike what we have in this country,” Trump said of Putin in an interview with then-friend Joe Scarborough, adding, “I think our country does plenty of killing also, Joe.” Kerr should try that in his next interview. “At least Xi Jinping’s a leader.”

I think this makes Trump officially “woke” now. He long ago reached the fourth stage of NBA-style social consciousness that’s now been attained by Kerr: Woke; extremely woke; ludicrously woke; whataboutist apologetics for foreign fascism.

By the way, with the PR disasters now coming daily, the NBA is officially done talking about all this:

The National Basketball Association (NBA) said Friday it had cancelled all remaining press events for its current China tour, citing the “complicated and unprecedented” controversy over Hong Kong protests and free speech…

“We have decided not to hold media availability for our teams for the remainder of our trip in China,” the NBA said in a statement.

“They have been placed into a complicated and unprecedented situation while abroad and we believe it would be unfair to ask them to address these matters in real time.”

It’d be unfair to ask players to answer difficult and complicated questions like, “Are concentration camps bad?”

But don’t worry, there are still plenty of opportunities for the NBA to kiss Chinese ass. Russell Westbrook is reportedly being hailed as a hero in China today for showing up to a press conference in Japan dressed in a traditional Chinese coat. Maybe if the Rockets can convince James Harden to start wearing a Mao suit this flap with Morey will blow over.

By the way, you’ll be pleased to know that the NBA is perfectly capable of taking a moral stand on foreign affairs when the spirit moves them. In lieu of an exit question, try to guess which country has offended the Portland Trail Blazers’ strong sense of social justice. Right.

Louisiana Man Reports Being Shot at, Directs Cops to the Scene. But He Fails to Consider One Extremely Important Detail

Louisiana is a strange and mysterious place. In the last few months, I’ve covered stories of a lady biting a camel in the scrotum and a woman having no idea how that bag of meth got in her vagina.

For those of you who subscribe to cisgenderism, now it’s time for the men to take a turn.

And our male avatar is none other than Damont Meredith, 21, of Gretna.

On Sunday, September 29th, Damont was shot at.

By a 28-year-old female.

Thankfully, someone who heard gunfire called 911.

At about 11:10 p.m.

As reported by Nola.com, Sheriff’s deputies showed up and asked him to recount the details.

He told them he’d been fired upon at a nearby crime scene. He offered to take them there.

Declining his offer, cops followed his directions to the 1000 block of Dimarco Drive, in Marrero.

But as they neared, 911 received yet another call, this time from a woman claiming to have just been robbed at gunpoint.

As she described the assailant — who shot at her while he was fleeing…and at whom, she also shot in retaliation — the officers realized she was detailing the appearance of Damont.

They went back to him, and he denied any wrongdoing.

But the lady gave a positive ID.

Clearly, in telling police where the crime had occurred — and, therefore, where to find the victim — Damont had failed to consider the fact that he was the robber.

He also, evidently, wanted law enforcement to catch who’d been shooting at him.

Even though he’d shot at them first.

After having robbed them.

On charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault with a firearm, Damont was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.

On Tuesday, he was still there.

No word on whether his continuing stay was due to legal necessity or he just hadn’t yet figured his way out of the building.

The Hong Kong protests have become more than riots with sticks and batons. Now Hong Kong police are shooting protesters as one viral video now shows.

During the demonstrations that were to occur 70th anniversary of Communist Party rule in China, things became violent as Hong Kong police clashed with protesters in Hoi Pa Street in Tsuen Wan. As you can see in the video, an officer seemed to be surrounded by protesters and took out his gun.

He fired at the protester, striking him in the chest as the protester swung a pipe at him.

*Warning*: The following video and images contain graphic content.

Another angle shows the officer firing at the protester.

According to reports, the protester was a high school student and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital with a bullet wound 3cm from his heart. His condition is currently unknown.

The protests, which began after China attempted to pass laws that would put Hong Kong residents further under its jurisdiction, have only escalated thanks to China’s overt attempts to force Hong Kong under its boot with police action. While it can be understood that a police officer would panic when surrounded as he was, the officers have been encouraged to use violence since the beginning.

It’s likely that someone being shot would be the inevitable result.

It’s also likely that this won’t be the last protester who is shot. Things will continue to escalate, and if they do then we may once again see the Chinese military become involved and we’ll have another Tiananmen Square incident with many young protesters laying dead.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, but it would appear that neither the Chinese government nor the protesters are backing down. It will likely get worse before it gets better.

Church Leaders Suggest Bonkers Remedy to Knife Violence in England

Knife crime is Britain has hit an all-time high. London’s murder rate was higher than New York’s last year and they’re on track to have even more murders this year than in 2018. Clearly, something needs to be done, and Britain has no shortage of bad ideas. Since 2014, there has been an 80 percent rise in knife crime.

They tried a “Knife Surrender Bin” wherein people could safely turn in their knives. That didn’t work out so well after at least one was broken into and the contents stolen. In Nottinghamshire, police purchased 100 kitchen knives with dull ends and distributed them to homes where there is a high risk for domestic abuse.

Now, church leaders in England are calling for the government to ban pointy knives all together, signing on to a letter which reads:

Historically we needed a point on the end of our knife to pick up food because forks weren’t invented. Now we only need the point to open packets when we can’t be bothered to find the scissors.

A five-year study in Edinburgh found that of the sharp instruments used in homicides, 94 per cent were kitchen knives. Research demonstrates kitchen knives are used in a large percentage of homicides due to their availability and lethal nature.

Criminologists have demonstrated that reducing availability in turn reduces crime.

The UK has worked for the public good by restricting handguns, paracetamol, smoking in public and plastic bags – now it is time to say ‘no bloody point’.

At Rochester Cathedral, a statue called “Knife Angel” (yes, it’s literally an angel made of knives) is currently on display along with a book which people can sign, pledging not to carry knives.

I doubt the people signing this book are the people who were going to go on a stabbing spree. That’s the problem with these initiatives, just like gun control ideas in America.Remember the halcyon days of a couple of years ago when we used to joke that Britain would soon try to ban “assault knives”? Satire has become reality. The problem isn’t with weapons, it’s with people. We need to get to why people are stabbing each other in such drastically larger numbers.

And, maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem that hard to sharpen a knife if you’re determined to use one.

If we spent this much time, money, and energy on making people less murdery, the weapons wouldn’t even be an issue.

Beto O’Rourke Has News for You About Your Guns

Westlake Legal Group beto-orourke-dh-620x443 Beto O’Rourke Has News for You About Your Guns Violence unconstitutional Social Justice Politics police pandering Leftwing Illogical Guns Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Demorats democrats confiscation buy back Beto O'Rourke 2020

Beto O’Rourke by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Beto O’Rourke’s campaign has reached the desperation phase.

Having only managed to draw around 2% in most of the polls of the past few months, Beto has decided to throw caution to the wind and go as far left as possible. He can’t give a speech these days without calling Trump Hitler or bemoaning his own privilege to pander to the social justice crowd.

He’s also gone well outside of the mainstream on guns, calling for a “gun buy back” program a month ago. Beto’s language is getting more pointed now. Take this latest comment.

This is the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a tin pot dictator and even though we’ve become desensitized to much of this kind of talk, it’s still pretty striking when you dwell on it. A presidential candidate is telling the country that he would force them to sell something he disproves of to the government. Never mind the constitutional rights in play here, Beto’s word is apparently all that is needed.

There’s also the ridiculous notion of “buying back” weapons. No one that I know of (outside of perhaps old surplus sales?) buys their guns from the government, therefore they can’t “buy” them back. We’ve heard this proposal from other failed candidates such as Kirsten Gillibrand and it’s an idea that’s picking up steam in liberal circles.

What it really shows is just how perverse a view the left has of the government’s power over normal citizens. In there minds, everything comes from the state and is thereby the purview of the state. It’s an ideological viewpoint that has led to tyranny throughout history. In the minds of these Democrat candidates though, that is totally acceptable and it’s why they can use the buy back language without even realizing how illogical it is.

Of course, the other big issue here is exactly how such a plan would even be enforced.

Any gun confiscation program would end badly in a variety of ways, not the least of which would be the probable violence. I’d also posit that many state and local police departments would simply ignore such an edict, as they should. They aren’t subject to he unconstitutional whims of the President. We could also get into the ignorance displayed by comparing an AK-47 to an AR-15, but I digress.

The good news is that Beto isn’t going to be President. His flailing pandering and desperation are simply signs of how short on life his campaign really is. There’s a certain justice in seeing a guy so propped up and mythologized by the media when he ran for Senate now crash and burn so hard running for president. We can all hope his political career meets its final death soon.

Absolutely Insane Brawl Breaks Out Near a California High School Involving Over 100 People

[Screenshot from CBS 13, https://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2019/08/29/after-school-brawl-caught-on-camera/]

 

What in the world kind of chaotic insanity is going on in California?

On Thursday, at least 100 young people got into a gigantic fight near Stockton’s Stagg High School. 

It was madness the likes of which you may never have seen before.

Police and paramedics rushed to the scene.

What the heck happened??

CBS Sacramento described the “wild scene,” which occurred around 12:30 and “spilled off-campus.”

Both guys and girls appeared to be running around like hooligans, with some of the fights nearing moving cars.

A woman named Theresa Saunders caught video of the wacko battle royal. 

She said of the blowup:

“This one went from boom, boom, boom, boom, all these different fights. It’s like, what happened in school? Was it a day to get revenge for each other?”

Stagg High parent Marquita Miles was flabbergasted:

“I just don’t understand the kids nowadays, it’s like they just fighting. They should all get along. I’m hearing too much violence out here.”

On Thursday evening, Stockton Unified School District sent an email to parents informing them of the brawl and its related “ongoing investigation.”

“As with all matters of student safety,” district spokesperson Shelly Spessard assured in a statement, “we have taken this very seriously and have and will act accordingly. Safety and security is a top priority in Stockton Unified.”

At least one person was arrested.

Check out the video for a showcase of total lunacy.
