Charlottesville VA police department refuses to provide protection for Jewish synagogue and Jewish worshipers targeted by Nazis.

This is part of a pattern of behavior on the part of the Charlottesville police department. They target left-wing protesters and gas or arrest them upon the least provocation, but coddle right wing protesters and Nazis and allow Nazis free rein to do whatever they want to do — something which, BTW, the police in Wiemar-era Germany did too, thus allowing Hitler to come to power on the back of his brownshirts.

At some point we have to say that this pattern of behavior is not coincidence. At some point we have to ask, “which of the people leading the Charlottesville, VA police department are closet Nazis?” In my opinion, that point is now, because this has become too blatant to be a coincidence.

Because there’s no difference between Nazis carrying shields and pipes and wearing helmets, and people who punch Nazis.

Seriously. That was his argument. That it was okay for Nazis to beat the shit out of people because the “alt-left” (antifa?) started it by punching some Nazis.

The President.

Defended.

Nazis.

Because those nasty antifa attacked peaceful white supremacists, as this photo proves:

Fuuuuuuuck.

Y’know, about these anti-fascist “antifa”, I don’t think their tactics are necessarily good or wise, but I can’t find it in me to condemn people who punch Nazis, no matter how much the Nazis whine about being punched. That’s the difference between me and the Orange Racist Russian Stooge, an apple that apparently didn’t fall far from the tree.

I swear, I go out of town on vacation, getting some well-earned rest deep in the Sierra Nevada well away from anything resembling the Internet, cellular service, frantic calls from my boss that things aren’t working, and so forth, and what the fuck happens?

Nazis.

Goddamn fucking Nazis.

Even Attorney General Jeff KKK Sessions is appalled and called the attack on anti-racism protesters an act of domestic terrorism.

Meanwhile a 32 year old paralegal, Heather Heyer, is dead and a lot of people injured. And James Alex Fields, Jr., the 20 year old neo-Nazi who slammed his car into the mass of protesters, has been charged with murder. Meanwhile His Fraudulency Donald the Trump was restrained in what he said about the attack, not name-checking neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Because the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber didn’t want to piss off one of his core constituencies, I guess. Because these racist asswipes were chanting “Heil Trump!” and displaying Nazi flags alongside Trump campaign posters as they marched around attacking protesters.

Here’s a hint: If you gotta restrain what you say in order to avoid pissing off fucking NAZIS, you ain’t on the side of what’s right and good.

Just sayin’.

Nazis. goddamn fucking Nazis. Again. Sheesh.

I hope I’m not triggering some poor delicate white snowflake Nazis by reposting this newspaper headline from May 7, 1945 (May 8 our time, since this is a London newspaper). I mean, wouldn’t want to hurt their delicate little fee-fees, right? Us mean old liberals whipped their butts in 1945, but this is 2017 and we must coddle them today, even giving them access to the President of the United States of America as some of his top advisors, right?

Meanwhile, in New Orleans racists and fucking Nazis whined that nobody, I mean nobody, was gonna take away their participation trophies for losing a war. Wow. Poor triggered snowflakes, all whiny and upset that somebody might take away their participation trophies. Wah!

Hillary Clinton — err, Emmanuel Macron — wins French Presidency over Donald Trump — err, Marine Le Pen.

And not by a little, either. He won with 66% of the popular vote. That’s something that no American President has ever done. The closest is when LBJ whipped Barry Goldwater with 61% of the popular vote in 1964.

Of course, Le Pen is counting this as a victory — she convinced 1/3rd of Frenchmen to vote for, well, a fucking Nazi. (And no, I’m not making that up, before Marine Le Pen gave her party a makeover, it was fond of spiffy brown uniforms and swastikas). And it’s worrisome that 1/3rd of Frenchmen would vote for a fucking Nazi in the first place, even though she was running against some bloodless technocrat who has the charisma of barely-browned toast, basically the Hillary Clinton of France.

Still: The French had the sense to vote for their equivalent of Hillary Clinton rather than vote for a fucking Nazi.

Yeah, I think the French are gonna be insufferably smug towards Americans for the next four years… not only are they doing healthcare better than America, not only do they live longer than Americans and have better cuisine than Americans, but now they can say “nya nya, we voted against our Nazis and you didn’t!”?

Yeah, it sucks to be an American in France right about now…

Just rather overheated — it’s been above 90F here for two days in a row. Even had to plug in the portable air conditioner in my bedroom yesterday to cool it down enough to sleep.

So anywho: America’s largest oil refinery is now 100% owned by Saudi Arabia. MAGA!

Spicey runs away from a press briefing. ¿Apparently scared that the reporters would ask him hard questions about what he’s butt-tweeting on Twitter?

As I keep pointing out, Hillary Clinton didn’t ignore the working class. She had detailed policy proposals to help them. But those policy proposals would have helped the poors and the blahs too, so. Can’t have that, can we? Our working-class white people, if they were underneath a bridge cooking a pigeon on a stick over a hobo stove, would gladly give up their pigeon if it meant that the black person the next bridge over didn’t even have a hobo stove.

This Nazi vs anti-Nazi bullshit is getting ridiculous. How do so many Nazis have so much time to go to strange towns where nobody knows them and hold rallies? Sheesh.

Finally, all this needs is some Truck Nutz and it’s the perfect Trump supporter truck:

Hint: If you have to loudly proclaim that you’re an alpha male… you ain’t one. Just sayin’.

As with Saul Alinsky, once more I learn that I am a follower or advocate of something that I never heard of before right-wingers educated me about what I believe, thanks to their magical psychic mind-reading powers that let them know what I believe better than I do myself. Wow! The things I learn from right wingers! I wonder if they volunteer for the Pentagon to psychically read the mind of Kim Young’un over in Korea with those amazing psychic powers of theirs?!

So anyhow, reading further, “antifa” stands for “Anti-Fascist”. Okay, I’m anti-Fascist. I’m in virulent disagreement with the government policies promulgated by the fascist governments of Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and Portugal in the 1930’s and 1940’s. What sensible human being wouldn’t be? I mean, their militaristic attempt to conquer half the world killed bajillions of people, and their domestic policies, where they exterminated Jews and political opponents by the millions, were horrifying. Who in the world could be pro fascist?!

So then the right wing informs me that “antifa” are the real fascists. Because they’re against right wingers. And the real fascists in Germany, Italy, etc. were left wingers. At which point I come to a full screeching halt and say, “Wha?!”.

Look. Historians have a way of classifying political organizations as left wing, right wing, or centrist.

Left wing: Believes in equality for women and religious and ethnic minorities, progressive taxation, government regulation of business, labor unions, more money spent on social programs, less money spent on the military.

Right wing: Does not believe in equality for women, believes the religious and ethnic majority should have more rights than the minorities, against progressive taxation, believes that industrialists should rule the government rather than vice-versa, labor unions should be banned, and we should spend more money on the military and less on social programs.

Note that I don’t say anything about “democracy” or “free speech” in there. Both left wing and right wing political groups have their extremists who care nothing for democracy or free speech. I don’t mention anything about anti-Communist there either — there have been left wing anti-Communist parties just as there have been right wing anti-Communist parties. There’s a lot of other commonality between the most extreme left and right wing groups I could come up with too if I tried. But the above is how historians, in general, classify political parties. And by those classifications, the fascist parties in Italy and Germany were decidedly right wing — they were against equal rights for minorities, against equality of women, against social programs, for greatly increased military spending, and so forth.

So back to “antifa”. Who the heck are they, again? So I go do some research and find that they appear to be anarchists of the American variety. Some are anarcho-Communists, some are anarcho-syndicalists. Their beliefs would be “left wing” by the definition historians use above in that they’re pro equality, pro labor, and against military spending. They’ve adopted or adapted “black bloc” tactics from other anarchist groups. And they’re assholes.

The problem is, they’re the only assholes actually fighting fascists on the streets.

Why that is a problem basically comes down to the reality that right wingers have otherwise had a monopoly on political violence. Their troll armies swiftly pollute the comments section of any article that mentions the right wing in a disparaging way with pro-Nazi anti-leftist drivel. They relentlessly “dox” people and harass them at home. They threaten people with bodily harm, and, occasionally, follow through. Hell, a bunch of right-wingers even aimed guns at police officers and BLM employees who were just doing their job as ordered by a court, and basically ran the cops out of town there at Bundyville Nevada. And the instances of violence are increasing, as the recent shooting of a left-wing protester in Seattle shows.

And when the right wingers have a monopoly on political violence, we all know where that ends. The liberal left in Germany in the 1920’s, as with the liberal left in today’s United States, instead chose a legalistic strategy of filing lawsuits and running for office, and their leaders were eventually killed by the blackshirts or brownshirts, rendering them harmless. Then the fascists just rolled into office. They’d won. There weren’t enough of the anarchists and Communists to stop the blackshirts and brownshirt, and the anarchists and Communists were overwhelmed by the fasicsts. The facists had killed all the opposition that could have prevented their takeover, and the police, just as at Bundyville, weren’t willing to confront them.

The biggest party in Weimar Germany was the SPD, the Social Democrat Party. They were a somewhat socialist left wing party, the largest left wing party, the largest party period. They, too, engaged in a campaign to demonize their version of the “antifa”, eventually outlawing the Roter Frontkämpferbund in 1929, just as our own largest left wing party is engaged in a campaign to demonize our own version of the antifa and, presumably, outlaw them (though how you outlaw an anarchist organization that explicitly has no officers, no treasury, no assets, no organizational structure, somewhat eludes me, but then again this is a government that outlawed a weed, so). And all of the SPD’s top leadership ended up being killed by the SA brownshirts, or ended up arrested and sent to Hitler’s concentration camps.

Maybe suppressing their antifa hadn’t been so smart, after all.

Just sayin’.
