The violent people on the left

According to CNN, “Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested after they smashed windows, damaged cars and threw rocks at police near Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony on Friday in Washington.”

Liberals fretted about how Trump supporters would be violent if Trump lost, I guess they were projecting onto Trump supporters how their own people behave.

  2. Is there anything Trump can do immediately (policy wise) that pushes back against these progressive douchebag thugs.

    • Enforce the existing immigration laws. Require companies to prove that they can’t find an American worker when they hire an H-1B (which is what the law says but is currently ignored by the govt).

      • Current immigration laws allow the government to charge back social support costs to immigration sponsors, for immigrants who go on public support. The Administration needs to start putting greater energy into monitoring social support recipients for undocumented status. A good start would be to require use of Everify by every state in their federally financed or mandated social programs like unemployment insurance. Colleges should be forced to employ Everify as a condition of receipt of federal funds. Once more cases of social support costs are monitored and documented, then sponsoring agencies should be charged with costs accrued. This would put many of them, especially the notorious offenders like Catholic Charities, out of business.

    • Part of the problem is likely that the court system and much else is on the side of the douchebags. These aren’t just random college students with hate issues, they are the storm troopers of the left. They have pet lawyers and sympathetic judges and all the rest. Just look at how the justice system came down on Ayers and Dorn and others. Like a feather.

      But that apart, make it easy in these scenarios to sentence said douchebags to mandatory 90 days, register them as convicted criminals (if only it could be sex criminals), remove their voting capabilities, and make this count as a ‘strike’. Industrialize the process so that all 200 of them get sentenced in a week, or a day.

      Other policies would be to defund the underlying organizations in various ways. A lot of this crap is ultimately funded by the tax payer.

      Like other wise countries, make sure NGOs are registered and their activities and members tracked closely. It doesn’t matter that they are US NGOs.

      It would be fun to start taxing the supersized foundations and university endowments.

      However, my favorite would not be policy, but to take in George Soros for questioning about sedition and insurrection. Perp walk the old bastard while you’re at it. That would be an act of great symbolic significance.

      • The fraudster, Sam Israel, who is the subject of this book http://www.cbsnews.com/news/octopus-sam-israel-the-secret-market-and-wall-streets-wildest-con-by-guy-lawson/ discusses Soros at some length as one of the inside traders who taught him, and others, the inside trading game back in the 70s. Soros has already been convicted of insider trading by France. He has almost certainly been shielded from prosecution all these years in the US because of his political contributions. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s been financing congressional Republicans under the radar. Trump needs to order a full scale investigation.

      I certainly wouldn’t have accepted the election results if Hillary had won.

      • I side with Otis on this one, Trump is an existential threat to the left (he’s actual opposition not scripted). The right would accept Hillary because they have no other choice. No one wants to go to jail or have heir family taken away from them or lose their nice middle class job and the respect of all their friends (few people even now understand the existential threat the left poses because they have been brainwashed about demographics).

        I disagree about moderate middle class left people though. It’s wierd they are so up in arms, but I think for them the handwringing is because they are scared Trump will put women back in the kitchen. Which is irrational, but people gonna people.

        January 21, 2017 at 1:13 pm

      • “13 million people and their families are about to have their lives destroyed.”

        That’s the core of it. After 2012, the Democrats figured that they could ride on demographic changes and keep the presidency indefinitely. Sure, they might not have Congress for awhile, but after enough time, there would be enough brown people to give them a permanent electoral advantage.

        As a result, they blew off the white working class and lost 2016. Under Obama, the Democrats became an explicitly anti-white male political party, and they can’t take back their venomous rhetoric without alienating BLM, SJWs, etc.

        Trump, in announcing he will deport millions of people and build the Wall, has declared war on their long term strategy. Trump may fail, or it may be too late for demographic changes to be undone, so the Democrats may ultimately prevail – but Trump is still putting their strategy under fire.

        George W. Bush was happy to accept immigrants – he just wanted to woo them and turn them into Republicans. Of course, Bush’s strategy has proven to be a disaster for the Republicans. Jeb would have continued with it. While the Democrats would’ve been unhappy about Jeb beating Hillary, and would’ve called him racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., the unrelenting rage they hold against Trump stems from how he’s planning to destroy their long term strategy of making America a “brown” country.

  5. I’m not on Twitter but regarding ballroom dancing, no president knows how to ballroom dance. It’s not a big deal, though; it’s a very niche, mostly useless skill. The side-to-side slow dance is good enough for any event the average guy will ever attend, including presidential inaugurations. I looked back at videos of some other presidents and they all basically did the same thing. And the Valkyries song is a terrible choice for a slow dance so Trump did pretty good all things considered.

    Side note: actual ballroom dancing is an incredibly good skill for getting women with the one BIG caveat being that it only works at a ballroom dancing venue, and the <25 turbo hotties don't normally show up at these kinds of places; it's mostly grannies. But if you happen to be a good dancer and are lucky enough to meet a nice girl there, you hit A1 – A3 of the Mystery model without even having to think – "Come dance with me" [A1] / I'm a good dancer in a venue where value is mainly measured by dancing ability (DHV) [A2] / You've got to prove yourself by following me and if you do I'll reward you (qualification) [A3].

    • Heh, I like that you put it into MM context and yes, ballroom dancing is where washed up <25 turbo hotties sometimes retire to, to lock down a beta provider. I wouldn't say it is easy to get laid though even if you are a good dancer. Closing once again is everything.

      January 21, 2017 at 2:21 am

      • Thanks. I actually don’t run across many of Rollo Tomassi’s epiphany phasers dancing, though, although others’ experience could vary. It’s mostly late middle age empty-nesters, some young adults like myself who happen to be seriously into it as a weird niche hobby, and, most importantly, the odd group of college kids (mainly girls) trying something different for the weekend.

        I actually kind of like old people of this age (just not sexually). In many ways they are like teenagers since they have few responsibilities (kids are gone) and lots of free time (newly retired) and their bodies are not yet falling apart to the point where they can’t actually do anything, so if you can look past the grey hair and wrinkles they are pretty cool.

        But yes, you are correct, you can’t afford to drop the ball on any stage of the process, including closing.

        January 21, 2017 at 10:35 am

      • Heh, I like them to, but I’ve always associated better with people much older than me (I’m late 20s) and don’t relate as well to people especially girls my age. Classic beta if Jeb Bush hadn’t already cornered the market on that name.

        You’re right about it being mostly empty nesters. I think the dancing keeps them young. There’s about 10-20% early 30s beta hunters though.

        Old people are cool because they still have class and don’t think they are cooler than they actually are.

People walked and took public transit more. Then the country when total prole and gaudy from the 70s onward. Americans are becoming a bit less prole and demanding better quality, but the mentality is still quite prole.

If all machines were made to 1950s standards, and people took care of their clothes the way people used to in the 1950s, and people ate only high quality food in reasonable quantities consumer spending would probably drop 50% overnight and we would be in an instant recession. Our economy relies on people living shoddy lives.

      • I’d venture that many more people engaged in square dancing in the 50s than ball room dancing. A greater percent of the population lived in small towns, didn’t drink or rarely did, attended church and family events as a social activity, went hunting and fishing for entertainment, watched shows like the Ed Sullivan show, ate at home, food was very prole (Folgers, etc.), read Readers Digest and sought to improve themselves by purchasing Great Books series from book clubs, etc. To the extent there was cultural aping going on it was the reverse, Europeans were adopting American culture, popular music, etc.

The bride insisted that every member of the large wedding party participate in dance lessons, one night per week for 6-weeks prior to the wedding. We learned the basic steps – cha cha, salsa, merengue, and at least one ball room. It was kind of fun, and we all looked a bit more impressive at the wedding reception.

    • I explain that modern European Nationalists are by definition not Fascists, but Parliamentary Nationalists (or Democratic Nationalists) here – and do be sure to follow the discussion thread:

      https://pragmaticallydistributed.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/modern-european-nationalism-is-parliamentary-nationalism/

      The name we select to rectify today is Nationalism as it is understood within the context of contemporary Western Europe. The question around its name is whether the European nationalists of today are correctly equated with Fascists.

      The answer is no; their historical parallels are to the Anglo-Saxon model of Parliamentary Nationalism, or Democratic Nationalism, particularly the American Nationalist model. Parliamentary Nationalism is the advancement of the interests of the nation state combined with robust democratic and property rights for citizens.

      If the connection between European Parliamentary Nationalists and American Nationalism is not obvious to conservative Americans it is because they take it for granted that American Democracy will pursue nationalistic objectives and remain Democratic. At the same time American conservatives never associate the actual practice of American Democracy with the word ‘Nationalism’.

      This is not the case for the history of Continental Europe where Nationalism has only recently been tied to constitutional rights.

    • You make a good point.

      I would like to see the reaction if Le Pen says the Nationalism of FN is Democratic Nationalism because it would be true and it would help further distinguish her party from the Fascist label.

      None of the European Nationalist parties qualify as Fascist if they aren’t planning warfare against their European neighbors – and with their demographics they could hardly afford to go on a military rampage even if they wanted to.

      As historically illiterate as the Left now is, Fascism was a real ideology and it deserves a proper defined.

      I list these common features of Fascism as it was actually practiced, not as it has been described in anti-Trump #hastags:

      https://pragmaticallydistributed.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/modern-european-nationalism-is-parliamentary-nationalism/

      1) Fascist economics was a hybrid of Capitalism and Socialism; Capitalistic policies pacified elites while Socialist programs won the favor of the working class.
      2) The party leadership was overwhelmingly drawn from middle and working class parvenus.
      3) In previous eras, when European Royalty still commanded authority, no Fascist leader would have risen to absolute power.
      4) Despite not being derived from the high ranks, Fascist leadership preferred to assimilate the existing Old Guard into their systems.
      5) Fascist cults of personality openly emphasized the self-sacrifice and obedience of the collective to the will of one demagogic ruler. Of course Stalin had his own cult of personality as did FDR, but both did so while presenting themselves as champions of universalism; the Fascists never pretended to be anything but absolute rulers.

    Because if he’s not , the dangerous blaming and shaming process will start. If China retaliates, and supposed she’s much more successful with his neighbours because of it’s trade deals and highest average IQ – and she withdrow the money in the USA, do you think he is a person who will say, that’s a fair fight and we have to take care for ourselves and see if we can do better than them or he will blame anyone for rigging the process. And do you think people will be objective or prefer a goat ? There is danger here.

    • Trump will be fine. He seems to have an okay relationship with congress and the Republican congressional seats are basically all safe seats do to gerrymandering and polarization. Most of the stuff Trump wants to do he can do on his own, without any congressional help, and he can horse trade for the rest.

      It’s tough to gauge Trump’s current approval rating. We are seeing tons of polls that have him in the 30s, but Rasmussen, Reuters/Ipsos and PPD both have him over 50, and those were 3 of the better general election polls (although I really don’t trust Reuters/Ipsos). Gallup had him at 44 last they checked.

      My only concern is that a recession sometime in the next 4 years is a certainty. Bush Jr. dealt with a quasi recession and managed to win re-election, but it could get tricky for Trump if the economy hasn’t recovered by mid 2020.

      • “My only concern is that a recession sometime in the next 4 years is a certainty.”

        Yes, but if Trump handles immigration, the effect of any recession will be greatly diminished. The only “impact” of a recession is jobs. The bulk of people aren’t especially impacted by stock market drops. If you have a job during a recession, it’s not a recession for you.

        If Trump stops the flow of new workers in the nation, and sends some millions back (either forcefully or by cutting off benes), then it will open up plenty of job opportunities, and also drive up wages. In this scenario, most of white America, at least, won’t even notice there’s a recession going on.

      • There won’t be a recession, but the federal budget will collapse due to healthcare sometime in the 5 years. So there will be a depression, since healthcare is 20% of GDP and 40% of government spending. Once that’s over life will be better for everyone, but the US republic may not endure given all the divisions.

        If Trump successfully deports all illegals by 2018 and there is a wall and he curb stomps republicans like Lindsey Grahm out of office by rallying his troops in their districts he may have a shot at the 2020 election through a combination of voter suppression, better demographics, and gerrymandering.

        Trumps base didn’t vote for him because of actual bread on the table, Trump’s base wants optics (including the blue collars). Ie someone they perceive is fighting for them. They thought Obama was fighting for them, but later found out he wasn’t.

        Dindu turnout will remain low in 2020 unless dems run a black man/woman. Trump may be able to overcome the race hurdle by peeling off a few more % of the black middle class if he delivers them some pork and safety in their neighborhoods. This is somewhat at odds with dismantling the federal beauracracy (black jobs matter).

        There is probably a massive splintering in the black community between blacks along safety lines. There are the ones who don’t want to die due to a gangbang so even if they vote heavily on racial lines, Trump’s safety measures might seem appealing. On the flip side if he locks up their sons and daughters who are always innocent they might choose not to vote for him. It’s a coin toss.

        At the very least a purge of Mexican illegals and possible deportation of those born here (there is political will to deport criminals here who were born to illegals) would improve black lives because they wouldn’t be engaging in constant tribal genocide/warfare.

        Trump can do little budget wise because the US credit card is maxed out, but if he fixes healthcare (by prosecuting the medical monopolies) then approximately 3,000,000 upper middle class people will become destitute (insurance execs, doctors, nurses), but the remaining 99% of Americans will flourish. It’ll be the weirdest depression ever, where total GDP craters, but wealth inequality also craters (partly due to the destruction of the upper middle class, but mostly because everybody else got 80% richer due to the price collapse and cheap healthcare). Most of those people voted for Hillary anyway.

        If Trump has the will (because we know he has the balls) he can crush higher education and the medical care sectors (two pillars of the cathedral) he can end liberal grip on this country. He can do it easily because the rat bastards have been in violation of monopoly and fair pricing laws for years.

        It will be a chaotic period, but also the single greatest oppurtunity to fix the United States.

      • “peterike: you don’t think the Japanese workers have noticed the 8 recessions in Japan since 1990?”

        Well if they had shipped away 10 or 20 million people, maybe not so much.

      • @peterike,

        Do you realize that there is a generation of Americans who don’t know how to work?

        Moreover, a lot of the skilled labor in NYC is foreign, and I suspect they are illegal. Their replacements are coming from where?

        @Mike,

        “Trump is facing a challenge he hasn’t faced in the business world; people wanting to destroy him no matter the cost to themselves.”

        I agree. In business you fold when you reach the sunk cost threshold. In politics there isn’t any such thing. I just hope LOL the Russians have given him lots of dirt on his enemies. That was a joke, of course.

  10. A lot of the looters are clearly identifiable in the video footage, mostly bearded white-hipster douchebags. I hope Trump makes a point of tracking them down and bringing them to justice; that would be a great way of setting the stage for the next four years.

  11. Was there. Narrative is bs. Everything was super smooth. Facemasks should not be allowed.

  12. What to do? Masks while threatening in is illegal in DC and many other places. It is the folks with masks that are the trouble makers. The police need to crack down on facemasks.

  13. Trump needs to say that these masked protesters are the Klan.

    • Most of those masked “protestors” are anarchists and revolutionary communists. They’ve all been arrested dozens of times, and many of them have tangled with the police. These are not wimpy, whiny liberals. They’re veteran troublemakers, who are very angry and, in many cases, emotionally disturbed.

  14. I thought how boring is my own country elections and then thinking about it, it’s the contrary.

    There is a big chance will have a final roud, Marine Le Pen against Jean-Luc Melenchon and that will be an implosion of the system : Jean-Luc Melenchon is like a Bernie Sanders on steroid. And Marine Le Pen is much more leftist than Trump, but her party, long time militants are really far right : that’s why Nigel Farage never accepted an alliance with her, and when she came to Trump tower recently, Trump didn’t accept to see her (yet).

    I don’t know wich one of them would win, France is right leaning but people here are contrarian, but whichever win, it’s a big chance in UE policy. The german- french alliance wich is at the core of UE since 1945 wouldn’t last if any of those two is in power .

    PS : That’s big for the world : we are a slow growing part of the world, decaying since 150 years, but we still are one of the 500 millions richest people (knowing we’ve integreted poor greek/portugese/spaniards and 10 east europeans countries), second after USA in nominal GDP, china being third, and second after China, in purchasing power parity, USA being third in that case. And almost all the most beautiful cities (lots of 300 000 habitants cities with lively historial centers) where you can enjoy life (going to travel by bike in a beautiful setting) are here in europe (in my experience) . And if you look at ethnic statistics, we are still the reservoir of white people for the world (more than half of the white people are europeans, and 100% have european roots almost by definition).

    • I live in the US and even I know that Melenchon has no chance of getting to the second round. Le Pen will win round 1 and Fillon will win the run off. Nothing will change for 7 years and then Le Pen or her niece will be able to win next time.

      • Melenchon has no chance, but Macron is only a few points back from Fillon in the latest polls. If Macron can get ahead of Fillon, Le Pen would stand a great shot in the runoff.

  15. The funniest thing about these protestors is that they are the exact same people who a few years back were throwing rocks to protest “globalism.” So now that we’ve elected the LEAST globalist President in maybe 100 years, they are rock throwing for… what, exactly? I guess they are pro-globalist now. Certainly Hillary Clinton was the most overtly, openly Globalist candidate ever.

    These jerks just like protesting. Hey, I guess it’s fun to run rampant. A few get their heads cracked, but most get away clean. And there’s all those cute SJW chicks to hit on. Probably getting bloodied up a little is a great way to get some.

    • These jerks just like protesting.

      The simplest answer is often the best.

      A good historical context for what we’re witnessing can be found here: A Nation of Outsiders: How the White Middle Class Fell in Love with Rebellion in Postwar America (2011) by Grace Elizabeth Hale, a history professor at the University of Virginia.

      Hale observed that agitators on both the left and the right see themselves as heroic rebels fighting against the establishment and the status quo. That self-image applies across the political spectrum, from the Occupy Wall Streeters and the Berniacs on the left to the Tea Party conservatives on the right. It applies to most political movements in the U.S. since the 1950s. A classic instance was the Southern black civil rights movement of the 1950s that attracted hordes of white Northern middle-class students to join the cause.

      In many cases, this romanticization of one’s role in society enables losers to inflate their egos and self-image and, as an added benefit, attract like-minded sexual partners.

  17. It’s a world of lies. . .

    The Bushes and Hinckley families were good friends! Never reported! Just given a taxi driver lone gunmen story.

    Poppy Bush also had a hand in the JFK assassination!

    It’s a giant war for mongrelization/globalization waged by a tiny elite!

    There is no honesty; there is no good faith between peoples. . .

  20. eh eh , the first round of left primary has seen Benoît Hamon winning against every pronostic. And he is exactly like Melenchon : his message Environment + Multiculturalism + fighting islamophobia (critics of woman place in Islam are racist people ) + repentence against colonialism + muslim are a chance for France + etc …. You see the picture. So perhaps two candidates for this kind of idea is a bit too much, but as Hamon is a young cute stupid and Melenchon is an old clever very good at giving inflamatory speeches, Melenchon has a chance to be in the 2nd round in french election.
