Demos Are Baiting and Begging for More Violence

The Demo proliferators of hate and division are enticing more anarchist violence that they will attribute to “Trump supporters.”

“The crisis is arrived when we must assert our rights, or submit to every imposition, that can be heaped upon us, till custom and use shall make us as tame and abject slaves.” —George Washington (1774)

Over the last four years, the Democrat Party’s most vociferous 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 with vigor. As I noted in the “Capitol Riot Jackasses,” Democrats have double standards when it comes to the condemnation of riots. As historian Victor Davis Hanson noted, the nation endured “100 days of torching federal court houses and police precincts, 700 policeman injured, 40 people dead, $4-$5 billion in damages…” However, not only was there not universal condemnation from Demos, but in many cases there was support for the violence.

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.”

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. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) notes: “I think if we’re going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Oh, go fight to hear your voices heard,’ I mean, we really ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then.”

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.”

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) incited Democrats: “Go to the Hill today. Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

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…”

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.”

Such calls for violence against Republicans resulted in the recent protests at the home of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), as described by his wife Erin, who was home with her infant daughter. There was no Demo condemnation

Biden and Harris have promoted fighting President Trump directly.

Biden threatened to fight Trump in 2016: “I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.” (I would have paid BIG BUCKS to watch that rumble.) He doubled down on that threat against President Trump again in 2018: “I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”

Harris joked about killing Trump and Pence in a cage fight to applauding fans: “Does one of them have to come out alive?”

And Biden has targeted Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and factory working with ass whoopins. He declared, “I’d like to give [Cramer] a high threshold of pain. I’m serious. I’m really serious.” He told the Detroit union worker in his now-infamous “AR-14” argument, “You’re full of sh-t” and then threatened, “I’m going to go outside with your ass. … I’m not working for you.” (I would have paid BIG BUCKS to watch either of those rumbles.)

Of course, there is a long list of Leftists who made Nazi comparisons to antagonize their constituents.

Biden said Donald Trump was “sort of like Goebbels” the Nazi propagandists.

And House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC), compared Trump to Hitler, pleading: “I’m beginning to see what happened in Germany back in the 1930s. I never thought that could happen in this country. How do you elect a person president, then all of a sudden you’re going to give him the authority to be dictator? That’s what Hitler did in Germany.”

Notwithstanding any limits on their abject hypocrisy, on January 6th, Democrats were finally able to identify one riot in the last four years they could all condemn, ad infinitum — the one perpetrated in the Capitol building on January 6th 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 that day, than they were by the rhetoric spewed by a primary benefactor and promoter of that rally: fringe conspiracy theory agitator and perpetual charlatan Alex Jones.

And now, despite their incessant claims of “systemic racism” and relentless accusations that cops are racist, in addition to finding a police officer they can praise, the Demo hate hustlers have finally found a police department they can praise.

Recall what Joe Biden said about the “racist” way Capitol Police handled the riot: “Not only did we see the failure to protect one of the three branches of our government, we also saw a clear failure to carry out equal justice. No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that’s true. And it is unacceptable.”

And likewise, Kamala Harris condemned the Capitol Police: “We witnessed two systems of justice when we saw one that let extremists storm the United States Capitol, and another that released tear gas on peaceful protesters last summer.” (Ah yes, that brazen “peaceful protester” lie.)

Translation: The Capitol Police are racists.

But in their newfound politically expedient respect for police, Pelosi and Schumer are proposing Congressional Gold Medal for the ‘racist’ Capitol Police.

Fact is, the Demos have used the disgraceful Capitol incident as a catalyst to lure more violence. It is a callous and crass political calculation, and they know exactly what they’re doing.

Despite Biden and Harris having declared themselves “The Great Uniters,” they set about carpet-bombing conservatives with a record number of executive orders in their first 10 days.

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 6,000 National Guard personnel still on “defense” at a cost of almost $500 million, and an absurd array of hardened barriers — and the Democrats want to make those barriers permanent. (When the Trump administration’s DHS used concertina wire as a deterrent atop some southern border walls, the Left was offended.)

As political analyst Byron York asks rhetorically, “Why is the National Guard still in Washington?” Acting Secretary of the Army John Whitely explained, “There are several upcoming events – we don’t know what they are – over the next several weeks, and they’re concerned that there could be situations where there are lawful protests, First Amendment-protected protests, that could either be used by malicious actors, or other problems that could emerge.”

But Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) notes, “I sit on the Intelligence Committee, but I’m aware of no specific, credible threat reporting—as distinguished from aspirational, uncoordinated bluster on the internet—that justifies this continued troop presence.”

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.”

That was code for the administration’s objective to, in effect, classify as terrorists more than 100 million conservative grassroots Americans.

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.

Asked recently to comment on Trump, Biden responded, “All that’s been in the news is Trump. The next four years, I want to make sure all the news is the American people. I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump. I don’t want to talk about him anymore.” But make no mistake, he and all his Demos will continue talking about Trump through the 2022 midterm in order to hang the Capitol riot around the necks

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.”
