The Country Dodged A Bullet

No, Mitt. If you don’t think the antifa demonstrators are equally morally repugnant and guilty of violence, then you’re simply ignorant, no matter what they claim to be fighting.

Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming…

Go here to read the rest.  Pit stop in Dwight, lunch with the Rotary District Governor and then on to Indianapolis with the family for Gen Con 50.  In regard to the Charlottesville  debacle, where local law enforcement, ordered to do so by the Democrat mayor, sat on their hands and a completely predictable violent clash occurred, it was black fascists v. red fascists, with no meaningful moral distinction between them.  Romney once again demonstrates how he blew the 2012 election with a mind ever locked into the world of the mainstream media.  More on this murderous farce when I get back from vacation.

  1. Two unfortunate opportunists–McCain being the other.
    Just how complicit–by ideological design, by ignorance, or by misguided loyalty to the establishment–are many of the very leaders who pretend to guard the traditional values of the people?
    As far as the neutered police are concerned, standing down in the face of planned anarchy is the purest of disloyalty to the very purpose for which your profession exists. Law and order become the fodder of political chicanery, and everyone’s freedom becomes the ultimate victim.

  2. No significant corps of people has ‘fought bigotry’ since I was of an age to read a newspaper. It’s invariably competing collections of retromingent blowhards marking the trees.

  3. The swiftness and ferocity with which Antifa has been defended and shielded from criticism by not only the left and their media allies, but by certain elements within the institutional right is somewhat interesting. Perhaps it suggests the necessity of a little investigative snooping to see if there is a money trail to follow.

  4. You cannot buy Romney. It’s just an indication of the degree to which elite opinion is a monoculture. I bet Ted Cruz was pretty lonely at Jones, Day.

  5. Our governor, John Kasich, came out and called Trump an embarrassment and said there is no moral equivalency to the KKK and Nazis. I suppose the hundreds of millions tortured and murdered by anyone who wasn’t KKK and Nazis should find comfort in that. That’s why he’s not President Kasich. The whole ‘anything to the left of center is by default not bad’ should cause people to run screaming into the night. And yet how many Republicans, Pundits, and Catholics are buying it. As my boys said, “It’s not going to be pleasant for those who don’t conform to the Left, is it?” I’d like to tell them not to worry.

  6. By the (ahem) logic of these people who insist that ONLY the alt-right bears any responsibility for what happened in Charlottesville, and that any attempt to state otherwise is tantamount to being a Nazi sympathizer, I suppose that everyone who fought in the Pacific during WWII must have been a Nazi sympathizer because they weren’t fighting Hitler? I guess it’s now morally impossible to have more than one enemy or to fight a battle on more than one front.

  7. Our governor, John Kasich, came out and called Trump an embarrassment and said there is no moral equivalency to the KKK and Nazis.

    Of course Kasich’s embarrassed. Trump whooped is a$$. Kasich’s entire adult life up to age 48 consisted of political office and his time in business was likely derived from being able to work the phones.

  8. Yeah Mitt, nothing says “I oppose racism.” like baseball bats, rocks, and urine bombs!

    Now, I think the blowhardish ashatted way President Trump conducted himself at Tuesday’s presser merits criticism, his pointing out there was blame on both sides is just a plain fact.

  9. Fascist elements were trying to seize control of the streets (as they always do). They were met with heroic resistance from peace-loving workers and students determined to stop them. Where is the moral equivalence?-

  10. TRump chiefly and Haley at the UN and Xi of China with Russian help just contained Kim Jun Un. You’d never know it since
    an obsession by the pro abortion culture..NY Times/ comedians on late night/ dems and gop’ ers beaten in the primary fills half of the US.

  11. “They were met with heroic resistance from peace-loving workers and students determined to stop them. Where is the moral equivalence?-”

    I truly hope you are being facetious, because even you have to be aware of the violent nature of the antifa thugs. These masked cretins have been intimidating – and in some cases, have beaten up – individuals whom they deem to be “fascist.” While in some cases (like Saturday in Charlottesville) this does indeed include actual fascists, but this really means just about anyone holding political views to the right of Bernie Sanders. While some (maybe even most) of the counter-demonstrators truly did have peaceful intent, a very large segment included these disgusting vermin who are truly no better than the KKK/Nazi idiots who marched.

    You’re talking to the same fellow who referred to UKIP as a ‘neo-fascist’ party.

    The fact that Anne Marie Waters is a leadership candidate for UKIP shows the party’s true colours

  14. The fact that Anne Marie Waters is a leadership candidate for UKIP shows the party’s true colours

    The party’s true colors are what it has advocated since its founding. As for Waters, she’s a lapsed Labour Party member best known for her lesbianism and an antagonistic stance toward Islam. The term ‘fascist’ does not mean what you wish to pretend it means.

  15. BLM has aided/abetted the assassinations of 20 POs’. Antifas has committed scores of acts of violent crimes. and, the media – chirps. The Democrat/KKK and neo-nazis have no body count in the 21st century.

    Art, DOn’t hold back. let us know how you feel. Did you mean “virtue signaling”? Good stuff! Anyhow: “It’s invariably competing collections of retromingent blowhards marking the trees.”

    We have met he enemy and they is: the lying media, Mitt, and establishment Republicans who can’t see that antifas, BLM, KKK and neo-nazis are all the same species of cockroach.

  16. Kasich can’t take it that Trump kicked his ass in the primaries and won Ohio in the general election. I used to respect him but he is becoming another Romney..a complete wuss.

    Meanwhile, the Pakistanis who worked for Wasserman Schultz and were arrested…and the failure of Muller to come up with anything connecting Trump to the Russians…..is totally ignored, which is what the MSM wanted to do when Rep. Scalise was almost murdered by a loony leftist.

  17. I used to respect him but he is becoming another Romney..a complete wuss.

    Romney is a very capable man with many accomplishments in the realm of business and family life. Kasich is almost pure politician. Take away the time in office, Romney is still a man of consequence with 20 grandchildren. Take away the politics, Kasich is….well, nobody knows. The two men are not equivalents.

  18. New today: “Mitt Romney on Friday urged President Trump to take ‘remedial action in the extreme’ following his response to the Charlottesville violence.” ” An apology would be a defining moment of Trump’s presidency.”
    Agree, Romney is a good businessman and family man, but it’s obvious that his recent pronouncements are for settling a score with Trump. The media, complicit with far left, seizes upon Romney’s words not because Romney is some sage but, because it keeps the C-ville incident in the national spotlight and is negative to Trump.
    Meanwhile, as noted above in several comments, events of more import are happening domestically and internationally and are under reported..

    Meanwhile terrorist attacks in Spain and one in Finland

  19. Sixty-two percent of Americans polled oppose tearing down Confederate memorials. That is heartening: a majority of Americans know that tearing down statues and assaulting extremist, right-wing nuts won’t end racism or depose trump or . . .

    Noam Chomsky may, for once, be correct. He writes that Antifas is a huge gift to the right. Don’t believe what you hear from the lying media and swamp/donor-bought/lobbyist-owned GOP squids.

    Consider the potential worst-case, boys and girls. Soros’ $15 an hour isn’t nearly enough.

  20. Sixty-two percent of Americans polled oppose tearing down Confederate memorials.

    Normal people aren’t collecting sorosphere rent-a-crowd stipends. Out of a mixture of stupidity and malice, the media are peddling the idea that these cretins are something other than astroturf, and partisan Democrats believe it.
