At 3:15 IN THE MORNING!
It wasn’t enough to defeat Trump (possibly). His supporters must be taught a lesson. A little harassment will get their minds right. No wonder so many citizens are afraid to express their political inclination. Can’t put up the wrong yard sign in Madison, lest you get a midnight visit from the goon squad.
Social justice warriors earned their sobriquet not by persuasion but by intimidation. Nothing says progressivism like vandalism, barricaded streets, smashed windows, boarded up storefronts.
Welcome to Madison. Welcome to leafy, ordinarily quiet Orchard Ridge neighborhood. Two incidents of vandalism overnight that we know of, within two blocks of each other. A neighbor relates:
Monday morning at 3 am and now Wednesday [11-18-2020] morning at 3:12 am our driveway and the street have been vandalized with anti-Trump swear words. We believe it is because we had a Trump yard sign that was stolen, then bought a new one, and took it in at nights so it was not taken.
She called the police. They suggested more cameras, more lights. Good luck. Thanks for calling.
The lady of the house told the Werkes today that she always felt safe growing up in Mexico; now, not so much. It was her first experience with vandalism. Go ahead, call her a snow flake. Wait until your home gets targeted. (The accompanying photographs match the graffiti at her place but were taken at the second site.)
They just don’t get it
A former Never Trumper confesses.
The single biggest intellectual error among those in the liberal left and Never-Trump right is that they continue to see Trump as the driving force behind the rising illiberalism. The reality is that Trump never would have been, or would need to be, elected if conservatives were not under attack from every major culture-shaping institution. From the public school and university systems, to Hollywood and the media, to Silicon Valley and Wall Street, each of these institutions has been captured by the hard left. This dominance ensures that the woke movement will only grow in power, adding newly-graduated revolutionaries, rank after rank, to the nation’s newsrooms, boardrooms, and academy.
Et tu, Barack Obama?
Even former President Obama wants the government “to stop anyone from publicly stating opinions with which he disagrees …”
It’s … crazy that Obama hasn’t noticed there are already “standards within industries” to limit the spread of information uncongenial to Obama’s party, revealed in Twitter and Facebook’s publicly admitted efforts to stop the New York Post’s reports about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop from spreading, a determined effort by mainstream-media outlets to ignore or downplay the story, and the startling admission by the editor of the New York Times that he removed accurate information from an already-published story centering on a sexual-assault allegation against Joe Biden because Biden’s campaign complained. — Kyle Smith in National Review.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: The news media would be all over this if Biden supporters were targeted.
