Demos are baiting and begging for more violence
By Mark Alexander
Over the last four years, the Democrat Party's most ardent hate hustlers, in collusion with their Leftmedia propagandists and their Big Tech free speech suppressors, have perfected the politicization of hate, aiding and abetting now countless leftist insurrections across the nation. They have effectively used their "hate platform" to foment fear, anger, and division in order to systematically disunite America — giving rise to leftist mob rule.
Their uprisings began with destructive "historic cleansing campaigns," which devolved into violent "antifa movement" assaults and then crystalized last year with the deadly urban burn, loot, and murder riots based on the BIG Lie that our nation is infested with "systemic racism."
Hate hustlers and their supporting cast are nothing new, as evident in the writings of Frederick Douglass, Booker Washington, and Martin King. But what is new is their ability to proliferate hate and division through mass media networks.
During the six months leading up to the 2020 election, on top of politicizing the devastating ChiCom Virus pandemic, Democrats stirred the hate. The primary proliferators of this have been House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), but it's become abundantly clear that the Biden/Harris regime is now the launching platform.
Joe Biden fanned the riot flames declaring, "Does anyone believe there will be less violence ... if Donald Trump is reelected?" Of course, Donald Trump's election didn't create the hate; it merely revealed it. Notably, however, Trump's rhetorical "style" did nothing to suppress that anger, and I believe it is largely accountable for why he is a one-term president.
Likewise, Kamala Harris said, "They're not gonna stop before election day in November, and they're not gonna stop after election day. ... They're not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not." So committed was she to those "peaceful protesters" that she supported a bail fund for their release. Many of them were re-arrested, and at least one violent protester was re-re-arrested.
Socialist "Squad" member Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) was more to the point: "You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there's unrest in our lives." (The Twitter police must have missed this hate rhetoric because accounts for Biden, Harris, and Pressley have not been suspended.)
Of course, Democrats were promoting constituent violence before their "Summer of Rage."
Recall that last year, Schumer addressed a mob on the steps of the Supreme Court, fomenting disruption while a case was being deliberated: "I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."
Recall that Pelosi told her constituents: "If there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it."
Recall that ahead of the 2018 election, Hillary Clinton declared that Democrats can't be civil: "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for. ... I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again."
Recall that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) incited Democrats: "Go to the Hill today. Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople."
Recall that Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) told Democrats, "What we've got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets..."
Recall that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called on Democrats to harass Republicans in public places: "If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."
Notwithstanding any limits on their abject hypocrisy, Democrats were able to identify one riot in the last four years they could all condemn, ad infinitum — the one perpetrated in the Capitol building in early January by a fractional faction of jackass thugs.
That small atypical break-off group of violent radicals, clearly distinguishable from the otherwise lawful and respectful Trump rally attendees, were less likely inspired to violence by anything Donald Trump said than they were by the rhetoric spewed by a primary benefactor and promoter of that rally: fringe agitator and perpetual charlatan Alex Jones. He has a long and sordid history of promoting wholly discredited conspiracy theories, and he has amassed a substantial "alternate reality" cult following. Jones's path to promote "Stop the Steal" was paved by one of his most noted adherents, the eccentric Roger Stone.
The night prior to the post-rally eruption, Jones rallied his ilk by declaring: "We have only begun to resist the globalists. We have only begun our fight against their tyranny. They have tried to steal this election in front of everyone. I don't know how this is all going to end, but if they want to fight, they better believe they've got one."
The next day Jones fired up his bunch even further, yelling, "We declare 1776 against the new world order. We need to understand we're under attack, and we need to understand this is 21st-century warfare and get on a war-footing."
Predictably, Demos used the disgraceful Capitol incident as a catalyst to lure more violence, and the Jones followers are precisely the type they're trying to bait and hook. It is a callous and crass political calculation, and they know exactly what they're doing.
As political analyst Rich Lowry notes: "The dulcet tones of Biden's inaugural address already seem an artifact of a bygone era. ... Biden has proved willing, too, to go it alone via rapid-fire, unilateral executive actions. ... Joe Biden, who has never been woke himself, is attempting to deliver victories to the left wing of his party almost unimaginable eight or 12 years ago — and do it quickly."
So brazen has the leftist collusion and rhetoric been — what David Horowitz calls a "Tsunami of Hate" from the Democrat Party — that former Demo presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard condemned it outright: "The John Brennans, Adam Schiffs, and the oligarchs in Big Tech who are trying to undermine our constitutionally protected rights and turn our country into a police state with KGB-style surveillance are also domestic enemies — and much more powerful, and therefore dangerous, than the mob that stormed the Capitol."
Actually, much more dangerous, and their political theatrics are both grossly disproportionate to the actual threat and unprecedented since the Civil War.
The nation's capital looks like an occupied war zone with National Guard battalions and an absurd array of hardened barriers — and the Democrats want to make those barriers permanent. To take the fear and angst nationwide, the FBI issued a national violence alert for all state capitols — none of which has occurred.
Nancy Pelosi, apparently needing a reality check, publicly ratcheted up the rhetoric by warning that conservative members of Congress are "the enemy ... within." According to Pelosi, "I do believe, and I have said this all along, that we will probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members are concerned about in addition to what is happening outside." She added, "We have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the [House] floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress."
Topping that off, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced that Biden and Harris had ordered intelligence agencies to conduct a "comprehensive threat assessment" on domestic terrorism: "The [January 6] assault on the Capitol and the tragic deaths and destruction that occurred underscored what we have long known. The rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat."
Having spent some years engaged in counterterrorism analysis, I can tell you with certainty: The Democrats' actions are an open invitation to incite violence, and as I noted previously, that is precisely their calculation. The Demo proliferators of hate and division are banking their political fortunes on more anarchist violence that they will attribute to "Trump supporters." And, given that a growing number of Americans believe, accurately, that the Leftmedia and Big Tech have systematically suppressed our First Amendment rights, thus monopolizing public opinion, Demos are inviting a shift from ballot box to bullet box.
Their strategy extends well beyond enhancing the theatrical optics around the upcoming Trump impeachment farce. The incessant claims of impending insurrection are a disgraceful endeavor to lure mentally unstable conspiracy nuts out of their rat holes and then use their actions, or intended actions, as fodder for continuing the leftists' war on all conservatives.
In the oft-apropos words of Barack Obama's former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel: "You don't ever want a good crisis to go to waste; it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Or more recently, in the words of the Left's biggest benefactor, billionaire socialist George Soros, about how to manipulate the public during the ChiCom Virus pandemic: "I would describe it as a revolutionary moment when the range of possibilities is much greater than in normal times. What is inconceivable in normal times becomes not only possible but actually happens. People are disoriented and scared."
