‘We are all Antifa’: A tale told by an idiot

Published

We are all Antifa A tale told by an idiot

“It is a tale told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing.”
~ From Shakespeare’s Macbeth

The award for nincompoop of the week goes to Nina Farnia, Rachel Lederman, Meredith Wallis, and their affiliate organization, The National Lawyers Guild (NLG), who triumphantly declared in a far too typical, vacuously-minded fashion that “We are all antifa,” in their Wednesday op-ed at the San Francisco Chronicle. “As an antiracist organization, we refuse to support white supremacists.”

So, since I am against racism and am obviously against white supremacists, then, I am Antifa?

So, that means I should be supportive of Antifa? Uh… no. I don’t think so!

No.
Negative.
Nein.
Méiyǒu 
Non, merci.
Aww Hail Naw!

“Last month, thousands gathered in San Francisco and Berkeley to defeat the hatred of fascism and white supremacy,” the op-ed begins. “We believe far-right extremists have successfully twisted the right to free speech to cast themselves as victims of exactly what they strive to promote — hate and violence,” the writers claim in defiance of the fact that at least one of the organizing groups was both biracial and fervently against white supremacy (and Nazis).

Next, three darlings of the NLG (San Francisco chapter) proceeded in what can be described as euphemistic, impassioned pleas… agonizing attempts to re-edify (or, perhaps “un-edify”) the eager readers of the San Francisco Chronicle by valiantly exposing a dastardly plot being carried out by a maniacal government in cahoots with far-right scoundrels to effectively vilify the innocent, pure of heart and motive, peaceful flower children which together compose the collectively victimized group known to us as Antifa. “This campaign to recast antifa as a violent, leftist suppression of speech is a dangerous effort eerily reminiscent of the left-baiting that accompanied the Nazi rise to power.”

Lots of sound. Lots of fury. All signifying nothing.

So, you’ll have to forgive me for not shakin’ in my boots.

If you find yourself taken aback by the manipulative, biased, and nonsensical vitriol put forth by those representing an organization of American lawyers with such a seemingly upstanding and respectable name as the “National Lawyers Guild,” you are about to be served up a horse-sized “red pill.”  So, go ahead and pour yourself a large glass of water… Gulp!

MOPR was the Russian-language acronym for an association (society) formed in 1922, the International Class War Prisoners Aid Society, formed by Communist International. (Yes – You can legitimately blame the Russians!) MOPR later came to be known as International Red Aid (IRA) and, once established in America (1925), was rebranded as International Labor Defense (ILD). In 1937, the ILD established the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) for the purposes of emphasizing “human rights over property rights,” with the organization’s intended purpose being the weaponizing of American law and her courts in order to force “basic change in the structure of our political and [capitalist] economic system.” Tah-dah!

The following are a few “fun facts” about the National Lawyers Guild:

  • 1940, 3rd annual NLG convention: The board refused to pass/adopt an amendment which supported democracy and condemned dictatorship. (The President of the Guild at that time was also the lawyer for the Communist Party USA, CPUSA.)
  • 1950 US Govt. Documentation: “…found the organization was in fact ‘an appendage of the Communist Party.’ “
  • 1959 US Govt. Documentation: “Its [NLG]proclaimed ‘benevolent’ purposes were designed to lure non-Communist lawyers into the organization, where they would become subject to Communist influence and would wittingly or unwittingly serve communist objectives.”
  • Rutgers: “Prominent Guild member and Rutgers University School of Law Professor Arthur Kinoy argued that the role of the radical lawyer was to facilitate the coming anti-capitalist revolution by weakening the law’s ability to function effectively against law-breaking radicals.”
  • 1973: The NLG’s convention (held in Austin, TX) concluded with the singing of (I seriously couldn’t make this up if I even tired) “The Internacionale,” the Communist Anthem. (I kid you not.)
  • Current President, Natasha Lycia Ora Bannan: After the death of one of history’s most repugnant, gruesome, homicidal villains – Cuba’s Castro – the current NLG President posted a message, “For those that have supported the Cuban revolution and recognize Fidel as a freedom fighter.” She goes on to oooooo and ahhhhhh over Cuba’s Marxist hell-hole as a viable option for America. She also discusses the “wonderful” ways in which the National Lawyers Guild has effectively sided with Cuba’s murderous regime over the country’s persecuted people, because of “progress” or some other load of manipulative, fallacious word manure…. Blah, blah,blah.
  • The list of facts goes on and on and on and on…

GULP!

GULP!

Yes, this is all a pretty-darn big pill to swallow.

The people living amongst of in the words can be pretty dad-gum scary sometimes, especially when we realize – or, more specifically, when we are told – that we should support or be a part of an awful, violent, Godforsaken group like Antifa. That is not what fighting racism looks like. That is not what fighting fascism looks like. That’s just messed up!

So… he we are. All we can do it educate ourselves and, quite frankly, ignore stupid. Oh, and ignore any tale told by an idiot. At least that way we won’t be among those who are as lost as last year’s Easter eggs. So, God bless you, and good luck!

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
