The Chicago Trump Rally cancellation was the emergence of street fighting with politics as the cause. That did have the framing of a protest versus the candidate. This UCB riot is an organized mob going after a speaker. They had approval from the university, the city and the media. Note: they used fireworks and roman candles not just for optics and fire purposes but because the sounds are like gunshots. This wasn't against a politician. It was a simple speaker that is framed as alt-right despite repeatedly saying he is not and even shunning white nationalism. The speaker also is a homosexual, part Jewish man known for an open minded approach to who he dates on the color spectrum. He is a Trump supporter though. This is simple political violence against opponents.
This violence comes on the heels of months of leftist political violence fantasies. It started with the coup talk. The non-stop assassination of Trump hope-tweets. Hollywood figures openly saying it is okay to punch Nazis. Senator Tim Kaine calling on lefty foot soldiers to take to the streets. Of course there is a double standard as any negative comment about Obama policies was an attack on the man himself, after the Left wrote books and staged plays about the assassination of W. This is who they are. Violence in the streets is who they are. This is the logical physical expression of all that messaging.
This also comes years after in 2014 the news media, Chris Hayes being one of the worst offenders, practically begged the blacks of Ferguson to riot. The media did this while stoking flames for the midterm elections of 2014. They did it for ratings, too. People will watch a Happening. Hayes is a particular type of weasel because when rocks were thrown his way he ran and whined like a baby. Hayes also ran away at the mere sound of gunfire.
The times will continue to be interesting. This will further devolve. No one on the left is calling for people to pull back on this. The Left wants conflict, not seeing how BLM actually hurt them in '14 and '16. They also do not see how giving Milo a chance to go on cable news, speak about free speech and appear the victim. It gives him a much bigger platform, and a much better message than whatever lame talk he had set up with snark and civic nationalism.
This is just another step. These leftists are violently rioting over a speaker. How do you think they are going to react to any deportations with or without formal help from the cartels or Mexican government?
Last week I wrote about a way Trump could tax the high-low Left coalition, blunt any type of Left populism meme and have an Only Nixon Can Go To China moment. Weimerica weekly was on SWPL Family Formation and I tied it into why they can get a few hundred to protest in cities in the Clinton Archipelago.
This week I will discuss the petrodollar as well as the unfortunate way the petrodollar affects America's geopolitical decision making. There are multiple candidates for this week's Weimerica Weekly, so it will depend on time I can allocate to a subject.
