Over the past week, the Republican National Convention sought to conjure a “radical left” hellscape.All that is mostly correct. This November election is between Trump protecting Western civilization and law-abiding Americans, and Biden-Harris and other Democrats who openly support destructive criminals.
Speakers conflated anti-racist protesters with deranged criminals out to destroy the country. Donald Trump Jr. called Joe Biden “the Loch Ness monster,” while the conservative activist Charlie Kirk praised Donald Trump as “the bodyguard of Western civilization.” In his speech on Thursday, the president denounced “mob rule.” “Your vote will decide whether we protect law-abiding Americans, or whether we give free rein to violent anarchists and agitators, and criminals who threaten our citizens,” he said.
The language at the convention comes from the “white genocide” conspiracy theory, which warns, among other things, that brown and Black people will destroy white civilization with the help of their anti-racist allies. It echoed that of the racist-dystopian novel “The Camp of the Saints,”
In July, Mr. Miller told Tucker Carlson that the federal crackdown on anti-racist protesters in Portland, Ore., was about “the survival of this country.” In an interview with the radio host Larry O’Connor that month, he said the priority of the administration was protecting America from the dangers of “cancel culture,” which he described as “a very grave threat to American freedom.”Calling them "anti-racist protesters" is inaccurate. There are no racists in Portland being protested. They are just rioters and criminals.
The Trump campaign’s strategy is to cast the president’s opponents as an existential threat to the nation.They are an existential threat to this nation. They are openly trying to destroy it.
The term “cancel culture,” used throughout the Republican convention, lumps together and demonizes critics of white male supremacy, in an attempt to silence them. The use of the term in this context allows the far right to dictate the terms of the conversation, as does the news media’s reluctance to call Mr. Trump and his chief adviser what they are ...Now this is just lunacy. No critics of white male supremacy have been silenced. It is the Left that has been systematically getting people fired, ostracized, and de-platformed for expressing right-wing political views. No left-wingers are being canceled, unless you count left-wing feminists who do not fully accept the transsexual agenda.
This obsession with the supposed dangers of people of color, particularly immigrants or left-wing extremists, ignores reality. Right-wing extremists have committed the most terrorist attacks in the United States since the 1990s.No, Rittenhouse is not a right-wing extremist. More and more, it appears that he fired on an angry mob of criminals who were trying to kill him. The NY Times should not even be publishing his name, since he is a juvenile.
Officials say that a 17-year-old named Kyle Rittenhouse opened fire on people during a protest in Kenosha, Wis., on Tuesday, killing two and wounding a third.
Rittenhouse may well go to jail, and I am not saying that all of his shots were justifiable. We do not have enough info here. But the larger picture here is that Jacob Blake was resisting a legitimate arrest, and provoked the police into using a forceful response. Democrat politicians, from Kenosha officials to the governor to Joe Biden, encouraged the riots. Rittenhouse was just trying to help maintain order, because the police were not doing their jobs.
“Trump knows that if we find real solidarity, it’s a wrap,” said Aida Rodriguez, an Afro-Latina activist. “We’re all waking up to it, and you’re going to see it in November.” These alliances are a real-life manifestation of the mob of Mr. Miller’s nightmares.She finally agrees that if the anti-Whites gang up on the Whites, it will be a nightmare for Whites, just as some Trump supporters have predicted.
Just to be clear, I am not encouraging anyone to take guns to riot scenes. That is foolishness. We need to vote for elected officials who will use police to restore order.
Update: As proof of right-wingers not having the ability to cancel anyone, consider the new book title "In Defense of Looting". It was favorably reviewed on the NPR site. See some criticism here. It is every bit as bad as it sounds. The author is a man named Willie Osterweil who published the book under the name Vicky Osterweil. The book advocates illegal violence against peaceful innocents, but it is selling well on Amazon. Not cancelled.
Update: AmRen lists numerous additional NY Times errors.
