Two stories on American Thinker. The first dated on 6/21 about a Trump supporting Hispanic unleashing Saul Alinsky Communist tactics on a White supporter of Communist Black Lives Matter in Tulsa (the irony is magnificent). The second story is dated today (6/22) about how Communist Antifa/BLM have turned Seattle into a violence-ridden totalitarian enclave within the borders of the United States of America. A snapshot of America if Dems win elections on November 3, 2020.

A Hispanic vendor in Tulsa uses Alinsky tactics against a BLM supporter

 

By Andrea Widburg

One of the things conservatives notice whenever leftists flare up is that, subject to a few notable exceptions (Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Dan Crenshaw), our conservative politicians are cowardly. They never call out the leftists; instead, they simply try to soothe leftists’ destructiveness while accepting their premises.

 

Thankfully, politicians are a minority amongst conservatives. Most conservatives are regular folks who live and breathe their principles – as is the case with a Hispanic vendor at the Tulsa rally who got harassed by a couple of white Black Lives Matter protesters. Instead of backing down, the vendor went full, and beautiful, Alinsky on the whole BLM premise.

 

Saul Alinsky fought for the wrong side, but he was a smart tactician who came up with excellent rules for fighting an ideological opponent. Three of his rules are pertinent here:

 

  • RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

 

  • RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

 

  • RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

 

With those rules in mind, enjoy what happened in Tulsa when a mostly white group of Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at the Trump rally. The video begins when a white guy wearing the de rigueur leftist virtue mask (his has “BLM” emblazoned across it), and a t-shirt saying “I know words. I have the best words – Stable Genius,” spots a man who looks Hispanic. The white guy seems shocked that a Hispanic man is selling Trump merchandise while wearing a Trump hat and a t-shirt with a “God Guns and Trump” logo.

 

The white guy opens with a classic white person microaggression question: “Where’s your daddy from?” The vendor answers, “America.”

 

The inquisition continues: “Which part?” (You can see the white BLM brain think, “Maybe he means Latin America!”)

 

The vendor politely replies, “El Paso, Texas.” Moreover, boasts the vendor, his grandparents fought in World War II and his father fought in Vietnam.

 

White guy’s equally white girlfriend suddenly realizes he’s making a racist idiot of himself and pulls him away. The vendor isn’t done yet, though. He hollers after the man, “America first, all the way, bro! F**k BLM, bro. F**k BLM. You know, babies’ lives matter.”

 

For leftists, that phrase — “Babies’ lives matter” – is fighting words. Another white dude, with a useless mask glued to his chin, leaving his mouth and nose exposed, and wearing a “Juneteenth” shirt, takes up the battle.

 

Chin-mask guy has read the New York Times, so he knows that America began oppressing black lives in 1619. He’s therefore ready with the question he’s certain will silence the vendor. “Have babies been oppressed for four centuries?” he asks. Chin-mask guy is clueless that aborting 62 million babies since 1973, including a disproportionate number of black babies, is oppression.

 

The vendor is having none of it. “To this day, I have not met nobody who owns a slave, has slaves. I never met one slave. Stop living in the damned past, okay?”

 

Faced with this provocation, chin-mask guy starts babbling about systemic discrimination. And that’s when the vendor turns the table on him.

 

“Two days ago, I lost my money. How about you reimburse me for that. I’m a minority. Give me your money,” he says, holding out a mock pleading hand. “I’m a minority. Give me my reparations.”

 

Suddenly, the chin-mask guy is done talking about systemic oppression. He’s offended. “For what?” he demands.

 

“Because I’ve been oppressed. I’m a minority.”

 

Like Pavlov’s dog, chin-mask guy latches on to a magic word. “Yes,” he says, nodding his head rapidly, “you’ve been oppressed. You’ve definitely been oppressed.”

 

“So give me my rights. You’re white. Give me my reparations. Give me my reparations!”

 

Chin-mask is on board. “Yes. You have my promise of reparations.” He does not, however, dig into his wallet. Instead, puzzled, he asks, “How am I going to give you reparations?”

 

That’s a foolish question because the vendor has already told him how real reparations should work. Chin-mask guy is white and he’s admitted his white guilt, so he, personally, should dig into his pocket.

 

With that foolish question, chin-mask guy just gave the game away. If he genuinely believed that he, merely by virtue of being white, was personally responsible for oppression, he wouldn’t just hand over his cash, he’d pull a Mother Theresa and give all of his worldly goods to minorities.

 

But chin-mask guy doesn’t feel that at all. He feels that you, the taxpayer; you, the recent immigrant; you, the person whose ancestors fought and died to end slavery; you, the black conservative, should pool your wealth and give it to his virtue-signaling cause.

 

A smart friend of mine said, rightly, that we need to start calling leftists on their shtick and ridiculing them. We need to go full Alinsky on them, and Mr. Vendor played Rules 4 through 6 perfectly. I know that I enjoyed watching Mr. Vendor force chin-mask guy to answer for his own book of rules and then ridiculed him for his inability to do so.

So much for Seattle’s ‘summer of love’

 

By Monica Showalter

So much for Seattle’s “summer of love.”  That’s some “block party atmosphere” they’ve got in the CHOP.

 

Less than two weeks after Seattle’s mayor allowed warlords to declare an autonomous zone over six blocks of Seattle in the name of “abolishing” the police, the place is already starting to look like Liberia.

 

According to the New York Times:

 

One person died and another was critically injured by gunfire early Saturday morning inside a portion of a Seattle neighborhood that has been occupied by protesters for more than a week, officials said.

 

The shootings unfolded at a protester-run region known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or the Capitol Hill Organized Protest area. It has been celebrated as a “no cop” zone, and the Seattle Police Department wrote in a statement that detectives were investigating the shooting “despite the challenges presented by the circumstances.”

 

Apparently, the cops couldn’t get in in order to clear a path to allow the first responding medics in.

 

For that, the warlords running that hole are blaming cops for their own barbaric rule.

 

 

“Autonomous,” indeed.  Actually, it’s infantile.  They take over six city blocks claiming themselves more fit to rule than the established rule of law and its Democratic rulers allowed.  They vowed they’d be police-free.  They’d show us all how, and then they got exactly what they wanted as Seattle’s wretched leftist officials bowed to them and cheered their becoming police-free.  After that, word got out that it was going to get mighty easy to get away with killing people, because city officials had already abdicated.

 

The “gun-free zone” talk went out the window in this dumpster fire of autonomous rule, too.  Here’s a warlord handing out weapons to anyone over 18 from the trunk of his car:

 

 

Doesn’t sound like what’s known as the CHOP zone went with registrations or background checks, let alone ammo limits.

Here’s more blame-the-cops lunacy:

 

“Last night’s shooting should redirect us to the task at hand — to defend Black lives by dismantling the Seattle Police Department and investing in real community safety,” a group called Decriminalize Seattle said in a statement.

 

Now there’s another incident.

 

SEATTLE — Another night of gunfire at Seattle’s protester-led “autonomous zone” sent one person to the hospital with injuries, the second round of gun violence over the weekend in an area where officers had pulled out of the police station.

 

Susan Gregg, a spokeswoman at Harborview Medical Center, said one person who had been shot in or near the zone was brought by private vehicle for treatment late Sunday night. The victim was in serious condition, Ms. Gregg said. The Seattle Police Department said it was investigating a reported shooting inside the zone.

 

On Saturday morning, separate shootings left a 19-year-old man dead and another in critical condition.

 

 

 

There will be more.

 

The hard reality is that cops can’t be blamed for not risking their lives for a warlord zone engaged in a trash-can war.  Police are there to uphold rule of law and keep everyone safe.  They shouldn’t be expected to risk their lives or die to uphold a warlord hellhole that exists solely in opposition to their existence.

 

As cops are being blamed, the real blame goes to Seattle’s disgusting far-left officials, who let it all happen right under their noses.  They were not just naïve; they were motivated by their comparable hatred of cops and their overarching hatred of President Trump.  Remember this ugly taunt from the mayor of Seattle?

 

 

So much for all this lovely “summer of love” and the “big block party.”

It went downhill fast in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), since renamed “CHOP.”

 

It’s tempting to want to just let the place burn and let the dirtbags stir in their own juices.  But an ugly precedent has been set, trash-can fires can always spread, and people are going to be fleeing.  If President Trump can’t send troops in, it makes sense to penalize the city for its sickening absence of responsibility to its own sworn upheld office.  Legal means to put these people in the docks, and withholding of fundings might just be a start.

Intro to ‘Forgotten Americans Spoke’

Edited by John R. Houk

By Justin O. Smith

 

This part-essay and part op-ed piece is quite thought provoking. Justin Smith writes about how Americans rose up and voted for Trump largely repudiating the Obama legacy and the continued Crony-Leftism of Crooked Hillary.

 

Justin praises the electoral system and the wisdom of the Founding Fathers to make that a part of their American experiment. And that made me think of the hysterical Leftist in the tank Clintonistas going ballistic breaking the public order with vandalism and violence. There is a Left Wing push to those responsible for the Electoral College to reject the Constitutional path to POSTUS and revote according to the national popular vote which as of this writing has Crooked Hillary up by a mere .2% over President-Elect Trump.

 

For those that didn’t pay attention in school, one of the reasons for the Electoral College is to balance political power between populous States and less populous States. If you look at a Hillary vs. Trump map as affecting the Constitutional Electoral College, YOU will notice Trump’s victory is a virtual landslide in terms of the Electoral College.

 

The below map was for 11/14/16 with Trump at 290 and Crooked Hillary at 228 as of 1:05 PM ET with Michigan nearly to be able to be declared for Trump (add 16 Electoral votes to Trump column):

Forgotten Americans Spoke

OR — Leftist Heads Spin

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 11/14/2016 12:21 PM

 

Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, 2017, in large part because he so easily and defiantly laughed in the face of the D.C. establishment types, who thought he was a joke, and he turned the old political order on its head. Trump rejected soul-draining and mind-numbing identity politics and double standards in the law, that centered on whether one was a Republican or Democrat. He addressed the real issues of the day from immigration and “refugee” policies to Obamacare and national security, and he bluntly outlined how our world is filled with enemies, adversaries and competitors as well as friends. He opened a pathway for Americans to forcefully oppose the long-entrenched D.C. establishment, and the hyphen-free Americans took it, as they chose to make America work for all Americans, not just those in power.

 

Certainly, it is a positive act for any candidate to be magnanimous in victory, as Trump is showing. But he shouldn’t fall for the Leftist Progressive Democrats’ overanxious con — the “poison chalice” — of reaching across the aisle for “compromise”. The Democrats didn’t even know the meaning of the word in 2009 when Obama and his Democrat majority rammed Obamacare down our throats.

 

Trump needs to stay true to his agenda and to those Americans who put their faith in him. He needs to strike hard, while the stars are aligned and the iron is hot, to accomplish much in his first year. Any delay only gives his political enemies and the Leftist media time to gain control of the valves needed to “drain the swamp” in D.C., so Trump must not be overly concerned with those Leftists who are upset that he won, even if their heads are spinning on their shoulders and their tears are making the oceans rise.

 

And conservative Americans must also drive home the lessons of the benefits of a conservative free-market capitalist system, guided under the Founders’ Original Intent in the U.S. Constitution, over Marxist socialism. We must continue to illustrate how capitalism expands liberties, while socialism limits and destroys those same liberties.

 

On November 8th, Obama and most of Americas thought Hillary Clinton was poised early on to win, which prompted Obama to say that (regardless of who wins) “the sun will come up in the morning.” And as the sun rose the next day, a shocked Obama found himself expressing “hope” that Trump would be invested in unity, respect for American institutions and the nation’s way of life and the rule of law; all of this coming from Obama, a man and a U.S. President who had no respect for any of those things.

 

Let’s not forget too quickly that over the last eight years, Obama and his criminal cohorts, radical progressives/communists, used the Executive Branch to unleash the IRS dogs on conservative Americans and conservative political groups. He worked to destroy the coal industry that supported thousands of families, all on an ideological whim based on false science, and he attempted to intimidate conservatives away from exercising their constitutional rights for fear that armed federal agents might arrest them.

 

Let’s not forget how normal Americans have been depicted as racial “cowards” by Clinton associate Eric Holder, former U.S. Attorney General, after being attacked as “xenophobes” and “nativists” by progressives and RINO immigration expansionists. Don’t easily forgive the incessant accusations of “Islamophobia” by Hillary and the progressives in the wake of numerous islamofascist attacks on America. Hold on a bit longer to that anger resulting from baseless accusations of “homophobia” over our protest of homosexual marriage, and continue to mourn those police officers ambushed by murderous thugs seeking racial vengeance — all of this coming from Democrat Progressive policies and propaganda.

 

Hillary Clinton, in a conciliatory tone stated during her concession speech, “We owe him an open mind and as chance to succeed.” She was probably quite fearful that Trump would follow through on his promise to prosecute her, however, this is most unlikely to happen given Trump’s statement in his victory speech that “we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.” This in itself is a troubling start to Trump’s presidency, although he did tell ’60 Minutes’ on Nov. 13th that he wants “to think about it.” He also is now back-pedaling on immigration.

 

An unreasonable fear has also gripped the Leftists and anarchists who either purposefully, or from ignorance, misinterpret Trump’s proposals as “racist”. They have protested and rioted in several major U.S. cities like Los Angeles, Portland, New York and Miami, since November 9th, shouting “not my president”.

 

The Washington Post reported that issues of national security, rule of law and scope of government and rejecting Obama’s liberal agenda propelled Trump to victory, rather than any racist considerations. They assert that “on average, the counties that voted for Obama twice and then flipped to support Trump were 81% white”.

 

Isn’t this ironic? Now that the shoe is on the other foot, all of a sudden the Leftist Progressives, who wanted Obama to ignore the Constitution and take full advantage of “the pen”, are showing a great and renewed interest in that old tired concept of “checks and balances.”

 

And in the meantime, Americans who love God, Family and America are rejecting the corruption in our government. We reject the elites who hold us in contempt. We reject any government official, any leader and any unconstitutional “law” attempting to silence us and make us bow, kneel and obey the arbitrary whims of an out-of-control State.

 

Pray for America. Pray for Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they face this massive responsibility of healing and unifying America the best they can, and help them keep America safe and Free.

 

Ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their families … a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will. … Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.” — Donald Trump’s presidential victory speech
