Violent Politics


Progressives and ISIS have
 the same perception of reality as a snake’s.

Try to imagine the metaphysics of a
deadly snake.
Existence exists. You know that. But does a snake?
On
May 18th Tucker Carlson
on Fox Insider News delivered what must be one of the most poignant and
hard-hitting warnings voiced by a newscaster about today’s trend to settling
political disputes with violence. It was a delivery that reflects a cogent,
thinking mind, a virtue we don’t usually associate with TV newscasters:
The
modern left is no longer an ideological movement. Instead it’s an organized
movement around identity politics,” Tucker said on tonight’s show.
He warned that dividing Americans
into “sub-groups” and promoting “tribalism” is dangerous
for our democracy.
He said that modern progressives
don’t want to argue and have a reasonable discussion. They want their
“team” to win, and some of them are willing to use violence to do so,
as we’ve recently seen at protests across the country.
“Violence is what separates
politics from war,” Tucker said. “It’s when hurt feelings become dead
bodies, the point at which countries become ungovernable.”
He noted that he’s recently had
progressives on his program, and when pressed, they refused to condemn
political violence.
He concluded that “we are in
danger” as long as that’s the case.
In truth,
the Progressives and Antifa thugs have no “identity” to speak of. It could be
an amalgam of disparate groups. I am “anti-Trump” and violence is what I do. As Greg
Gutfield
writes, also on Fox:
On its ever changing face,
identity politics seemed pretty innocuous. It’s simply a way of unifying your
demands among a similar group of people. 
We’ve seen it take all shapes:
There’s identity politics based on race, gender, disability and religion. There
are loads of others — some so unusual they beggar belief (there are people who
now identify as animals, for example. Sometimes, I feel that I am one of them).
But as identity politics
expanded, infecting campus life, political agendas and
self-absorbed acceptance speeches at award shows, we saw something strange
and wonderful happen….
2017 may have been that year when
identity politics hit a brick wall, and slumped limply on the pavement.
But what prompts
Progressives and their “foot soldiers” – the ones who riot, destroy property,
shout down speakers with impunity, and physically assault anyone who dissents –
to close their minds to any rational, civil discourse on the issues that seem
to excite them to foam-flecked madness?
I have taken to characterizing
Progressive/University behavior to that of cobras or rattlesnakes. Snakes do
not think; in terms of teleology, they are “programmed” to respond to stimuli
such as heat or a moving body, at which they will strike, to kill and/or
consume. To a predator snake, all moving bodies pose a threat or an opportunity
for a meal. Snakes do not pause to think about the body; there is no appraisal
of it at all. The consciousness of a snake is not volitional. A snake cannot,
by its nature, have values. Progressives champion no fixed ideology but chaos.
They are prime candidates for herpetological study.
But this is what Progressives,
members of Antifa, and so on, have reduced themselves to, making themselves less than
human. If snakes could think or speak, this is what they’d say: “I am a snake,
and this is what I do.” As one correspondent put it:
The point is
that the Left, [including] the nihilists, are ideologically blinded by
intentionally cutting themselves off from reality and the facts. They end up
embracing nonsense because, ideologically, they have no recourse to facts to
sort out what is truth and what is farce, malevolent and otherwise, including
what is just plain silly.

The true symbol of ISIS;
its colors are also Antifa’s.

Snakes cannot know what is silly or
what is not. They are purely reactionary in their behavior. Reality is a
snake’s environment but it is not able to consciously evaluate it. A snake can
be conscious but unconscious of what anything is, including itself. It can only
respond automatically, per its programmed nature. If it grows cold, it will
seek warmth. Not finding warmth, it will die. If it basks on a rock in the sun,
it will seek a cooler place if it grows too hot. Otherwise its programmed
nature compels it to find a cooler spot before it bakes.
Leftists have trained themselves –
by rote, via programming – to respond to specific stimuli. Responding to
stimuli is the only alternative they have left themselves because they have
willingly sabotaged their own minds, or let their teachers determine their
content. They have been assisted in reducing their minds to merely
stimulus-activating vehicles by their Progressive teachers from kindergarten to
graduate school.
They have not been taught how to
think. To think is to evaluate facts. But facts, they have been taught, are
merely socially or racially constructed and are purely arbitrary, and
oppressive, and to be automatically dismissed in favor of action. Facts can be whatever they have been taught is not. The
mind is not volitional, they have been taught by their teachers. The mind is a
product of environmental conditioning. Volition is a racist construct. This is
pure Marxism. There’s no use in asking: But don’t they respond to the evidence
of their senses?
The evidence of their senses no
longer counts for anything. Like many birds, such as parrots or cockatoos, they
will, with repetitive couching, “learn” to produce desired sounds on cue. If a
cockatoo says “Pretty birdie” it doesn’t know the meaning of the words
pronounced by its owner. It’s simply responding to the stimulus of a certain
sound. When an Indian snake charmer produces certain sounds, a cobra simply
responds to a sound that literally means nothing to it, and will rise from a
vase and appear to be mesmerized.
The sound of “Trump  Supporter,” or “Freedom of Speech,” are mere
sounds to them, or it will be simply the sight of a person or a sign that will
“trigger” a violent response. The mere sight of a pro-Trump sign or hat will “trigger”
their attacks. Progressives and Antifa thugs are the ultimate, end results of
Pavlovian experimentation.
Will the Progressives ever abandon or
eschew violence? Disown or reproach any fellow Progressives or nihilists who
resort to it?  Can Progressives and
Antifa thugs be trained not to fly off the handle upon hearing the names of Ann
Coulter, or Milo Yiannopoulos or Heather McDonald?
Can snakes be trained not to
strike? No?
The malevolent, anti-man virus is embedded
so deeply in what passes for their minds, that the next best condition for them
is non-existence, or death.
The Progressives are beyond reason,
beyond reality.
When confronted with their demands,
the best answer would be a resounding “NO!” and if they press the issue with
their  fists, pepper spray, or sticks, is
to retaliate in kind, and make sure they don’t get up again to renew their
assaults.
President Trump got it almost right
in his Riyadh speech to Muslim state leaders:
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (CNN)President
Donald Trump looked to make
clear that the United States is not at war with Islam in a major speech here

on Sunday, instead defining the battle against terrorist groups as a
“battle between good and evil” as he urged Muslim-majority countries
to redouble their counterterrorism efforts.
“This is
not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different
civilizations,” Trump said. “This is a battle between barbaric
criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions
who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”
“Drive them
out,” Trump said. “Drive out the terrorists. Drive out the
extremists. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your
communities. Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this
Earth.”

ISIS makes
war on the defenseless. In a
Real war
against us it would lose.

In
one sense, the jihadists are not “losers.” They destroyed the youth and future of
a nation, in the form of the 22 people (I think there were one or two men). The
“grooming” gangs of Britain, which continue raping young British girls
unabated, are a form of jihad, because all of the rapists are Muslims. But the
authorities are reluctant to pursue them lest they be called “racists,” even
though Islam is not a race. Theresa May should face up to that simple logic. But
it’s the groomers who are the racists, because they target British white girls
to reduce them to what they call “slags.” The purpose of the groomers is to
humiliate the victims, to degrade them.
However,
in the larger sense, Trump is right: the jihadists are “losers.” They can only successfully
make war on defenseless civilians, on children, who are unable to fight back. Pitted
against a military that knows how to conduct a war – and we certainly do when
we mean business – they become losers.
But
there is no such thing as Islamic “extremism.” There is only Islam – if Islam is
to be little more than a laughable California fringe cult. Islam commands the
death or maiming of anyone who is not Muslim – such as over a dozen of infidel “Crusaders”
attending a pop singer’s concert (don’t forget the Bataclan massacre and
torture in Paris).
The Islamic State
of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)
claimed responsibility for Monday night’s suicide
bombing in a generic statement posted online. CBS News confirmed Tuesday that
the man who blew himself up outside the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester,
England was 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who was known to British authorities
prior to the attack. 

Some of the
Manchester victims; not
exactly “Crusaders”
are they?

The best way to combat snake
attacks is to cut off the snake’s head. The Progressives and their natural
allies, Antifa and similar gangs of thugs are a domestic alliance; ISIS is an international
gang of nihilists that must be erased from the face of the earth; our taking no
prisoners should not  lead to a comfortable
life at Guantanamo. All members of ISIS, if captured, should be executed on the
spot. There isn’t a one who hasn’t boasted of rape, torture, or murder. Not a
one deserves to ever breathe air again.
Pamela
Geller
got it right:
Brace yourself for jihad attack
part two in the information battle-space, as jihad spox groups such as CAIR,
ISNA, MSA, etc. take control of a Sharia-compliant media and proselytize and
lecture us on “fear of reprisals” and “backlashophobia” while clubbing us
bloody with the mind-numbing mantra that “Islam is peace.”
Strike terror
into the hearts of the unbelievers (Quran 8:12)
Therefore
strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them (Quran 8:12)
The Qur’an
guarantees Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (9:111)
Rather: Strike terror into the
hearts of ISIS. And then finish the job.

    I could have drawn the analogy of developing the tenacity of a mongoose in combating Progressives or ISIS beasts. For that’s the tenacity one would need to bring them down.

    Snakes cannot be obsessed. To be obsessed requires greater and more complex gray matter than a snake has. Obsession with a thing to the exclusion of everything else is a human capacity. One can be obsessed with beauty, or with destroying that beauty, as ISIS jihadists are.
