“Total Anarchy”: Media Now Encouraging and Politicians Tolerating Left-wing Terrorism

protest violent Antifa anarchy terrorismAs the terrorist who attacked the ICE facility “and the many other heroic comrades before him have made clear, there are many ways to fight back against a violent fascist regime. Perhaps it’s time for more of us to put our thinking caps on.” This line wasn’t disgorged by an Antifa group, but by Teen Vogue “labor columnist” and NPR correspondent Kim Kelly. Kelly likened the now-deceased terrorist (shot by police), Willem Van Spronsen, to WWII partisans who fought the Nazis.

She’s not alone. Columnist and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King called the 69-year-old Van Spronsen the “first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees,” implying that he was like John Brown, the abolitionist who led the Harpers Ferry raid in 1859.

Also, incredibly, Van Spronsen — a self-identified Antifa member who attacked the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, on Saturday armed with an AR-15 rifle and incendiary devices — “appears to have been part of a May 5 episode of CNN’s United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell,” reports Fox News.

Bell called the Antifa terrorists “‘good guys,’ going to a gun range with members and even questioning why ‘more white people’ don’t share their viewpoints.” Bell also could be seen on the show admiring one Antifa member’s weapons (Monday Fox News segment on CNN and Bell below).

Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear that even one Democrat presidential candidate has condemned Van Spronsen’s attack, and Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) notably refused to do so when asked about it recently.

While this may not be surprising from a woman who dismissed 9/11 as an event in which “some people did something,” the issue is that the mainstream Left in general doesn’t condemn the Tacoma attack. Why not?

Because, as Fox News host Tucker Carlson put it Monday evening, “They’re on board with it.… Just a few weeks ago, the New York Times published an op-ed calling ICE agents complicit in ‘mass atrocities,’” he pointed out — “and then called for ICE agents to have their names and home addresses publicized” (video below).

This is how you foment unrest and violence (and revolution). It’s said that “the pen is mightier than the sword” because words are powerful — and can have serious consequences. Note here that in a manifesto he left behind, Van Spronsen echoed Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ likening of ICE facilities to Nazi “concentration camps.”

Imagine this rhetoric’s power. If you thought Nazis were taking over your nation, might you not assume it was justifiable to stop them by any means necessary?

This demagoguery’s fruits were apparent before President Trump was even elected, too, with Antifa’s and other leftists’ vandalism and attacks on Trump supporters. Then there was the congressional baseball shooting perpetrated by Bernie Sanders follower James Hodgkinson in June 2017. As radio host Bill Mitchell put it at the time, “The Left in this country is ushering in a new #CultureOfViolence where violent hate is the new normal.”

Illustrating another aspect of this phenomenon is the story of one of its latest victims, Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.). Tuesday night, he shared with Tucker Carlson a recording of the following vile threat:

Gaetz, you pathetic piece of s***, do you know that I could blow your f***ing head clean off your shoulders from over a mile away? Watch your back, b****, you pathetic little piece of s***. You got your head so far up Trump’s a**, I could still take it off your shoulders. F*** you, Gaetz. I’m coming after you, b****.

Note here that it’s illegal to threaten a federal official, that Gaetz’ family was targeted as well, and that the FBI has identified the suspect. The result?

The “U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California deemed the matter ‘a non-threat’ and would not pursue a case,” reports Fox News.

Are officials this cavalier when Democrats are threatened?

In point of fact, this merely reflects how liberal state and local governments have long been giving Antifa and other leftists free rein to attack conservatives.

So now you know why left-wing terrorists are so bold. Case in point: A Facebook Antifa page writes, “When our good friend and comrade Willem Van Spronsen took a stand against the fascist detention center in Tacoma, he became a martyr who gave his life to the struggle against fascism,” reported Heavy.com. “He was kind and deeply loved by many communities; we cannot let his death go unanswered.”

Yet there’s an answer all should demand: Why is Antifa still allowed to operate on Facebook when commentator Alex Jones was banned from the platform for being a “hatemonger”? Note also that Facebook just hit The John Birch Society with a “hate speech” violation — which includes censorship of a post and suspension of video monetization — for using the words “Immigrant Invasion” on a magazine cover.

So let’s paint a picture: Leftist goons attack and threaten conservatives, while media encourage them, Big Tech facilitates them, and politicians and law enforcement look the other way — all in an effort to quash political opposition.

So tell me again: Who are the fascists?

I feel this will not end well if those in charge of protecting the citizens or residences of our cities put in harms way by these Antifa crowds. We charge our leaders and the Law Enforcement Groups they lead, or set policies for, to direct and allowed them to make some needed arrests. Oh, by the way, once arrested, there must be some consequences, i.e., jail time, permanent criminal records, etc. The black face masks tell you all you need to know as to their goals and modes of operation. This will not end well for any law abiding person, or for those in charge that did nothing to fix the problem and this is for sure a problem. Are you listening City Mayor, Police Chief, County Sheriff, State Governor and Congressional Representatives. We need your help! We need you to do your job!

When a group has run out of reason, they always resort to name calling. That is where the Dems are now. The have wasted almost three years in insane, self-centered, nation destroying, EVIL RANTS, instead of building UP America. What a waste of time, money, and country! The Dems are supporting Antife, the four horsewomen of the Apocolyps, and anything anti-Trump even though they KNOW that he is the BEST President since Reagan! for America, as we have known it. The Dems are wanting to fundamentally Chang this country into their SOCIALISTIC power grab. I hope and pray the the American people give Trump, America, and the world FOUR MORE YEARS to continue to KEEP this country GREAT!!!

The republicans won’t even support our President! The news media is a joke, leftist rule , law inforcement and members of the military are hobbled. I can’t even read or listen to conservative commentators with out tears. What is to become of our country? I can’t say it can’t get worse because it always does. Lord come back soon!!!

I support Free Speech, I support public dissension, I ( do not support ) masks, clubs, beating of people. I would support a contact method so that like minded people could retaliate against those that beat people . Be prepared at all time for violence in a group like Antifa.

I look at ANTIF as the youth movement/brown shirts of the Nazi movement of the 30’s and 40’s. Total lawlessness perpetrated by certain people that want to bring this country down. The Soros’ and those that support them. both in and out of the government comes to mind.

It’s strange how they try to change basic definitions. All socialism is leftist. The most extreme is Marxist socialism, which eradicates all freedoms because the government dictates everything and owns everything. National socialism is leftist also, but allows private property ownership, although the government controls everything and everyone. The Nazis were national socialists. You could easily argue that western governments are headed toward more extreme forms of national socialism. Fascism is where the individual liberties are suppressed in dictatorial rule, and the state is exalted above the individual, where there is severe economic and social regimentation and opposition is suppressed, according to Webster.
Since President Trump is in favor of individual freedom and lesser government, he is against Fascism and national socialism (Nazism). Those who oppose him have stated they want more control over the people through the government and suppression of liberties; therefore, they are the Fascists and Nazis, not Trump.

Americans need to vote out all socialists from office and punish those, as terrorists, siding with them. Enough is enough. Vote for Trump.

On Democrats—-IDIOT’S the lot of you! Ray Charles cloud have seen all of this twenty months ago. From his ‘BLIND DEAD GRAVE’. Just how much ‘MONEY’ are ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ going to spend on this? Washington has a dangerous spending addiction and the largest driver of that spending is ‘ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS’. I for ‘ONE’ believe that we can no longer keep kicking the can down the road hoping the problem goes away. Where is the American Leadership that ‘WE’ have Voted for? ‘WE’ must reform and exercise ‘OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT’ and for once and all ‘VOTE’ all of these ‘SUPPORTERS of all of the ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS’ out of office.

Do politicians realize that if they turn a blind eye to anarchy that if the government collapses the politicians are the first to be killed?

What are the steps we need to take to inform our elected officials and the President on how we feel and want Antifa to be labeled a terroristic threat in the U.S.

If this nation falls, it will fall from the INSIDE like all major empires have. The Dems want to remove Trump at any and ALL cost to America, and Damn those who oppose them!! They are destroying America for THEIR anti-American, anti-God LUST for power. They may not all BE evil, but their dreams and goals ARE EVIL!!! God, Please protect this country from “ourselves.”

Ive said for some time: we ARE in a civil war, and the very Republic is at stake. It is an ideological war, and it is a spiritual war, and souls of many are at risk. The country is on the verge of anarchy, and although there are fringe elements on both sides that seek to propagate this, there is NO ONE more dangerous in this regard than the liberal puppet media. They misrepresent, twist and distort the truth, as well as flat_out lie. They control WHAT they "report" on, so they are able to keep in front of you only whatever they want you to focus on, and they bury anything that doesnt suit their liberal agenda. Add to that then, the demon-crats refusal to enforce our borders as well as their upholding and supporting the so called “sanctuary cities”, then FINALLY, we are now faced with those anti-America goons who have infested our United States House of Representatives, the socialists and muslims…is it any wonder were at a tipping point in this country?

Something has got to given, and soon. Pray for America. Pray for our leaders. Pray FERVENTLY that the Lord Jesus would grant wisdom to our elected employees, and pray for guidance for us, so that well know what to do, and when to do it. Pray as if the survival of this Republic depends upon that prayer.

Fox News & Tucker Carlson are both a little on the radical side & are helping to promote civil unrest through reporting. Quit contributing to making this nation more divided.
