Charlottesville, Sacramento, Berkeley — we’re watching a microcosmic re-enactment of Weimar Republic brownshirt-vs.-reds violence in real-time, complete with the same flags being flown.
'Jews are an ethno-religious people distinct from Europeans. At various times, they have existed within European societies, without being of them.
Antifa has been declared a terrorist organization by New Jersey Homeland security. It's about time. I honestly thought it would take longer. I suspect it might stall a bit in Oregon, where they seem to have more than a normal volume of support in Portland.
Resisting terror is like trying not to fall asleep. One columnist thinks it is this simple:
'And all over London last night, after the attack, for many hours, people continued to laugh, to chat, to drink, to dance. Not because they didn’t care. Many of them undoubtedly spent many minutes texting, calling, getting in touch with friends to find out if they were safe. But they carried on living their lives. They weren’t scared or cowed by terrorist fanatics who want them to feel burning terror and fear in every waking moment that they have, to steal away their happiness and their security.
What would have been the alternative? For London’s pubs, bars, restaurants, clubs to all empty as their patrons fled home in terror? To bolt their doors, to stay inside, to venture outside only when necessary, eyeing suspiciously everything and anything?
Today, London carries on. It is quiet by London-standards because it’s a Sunday. There are people in the parks. Some have gone for a swim. Others have taken their kids out. Others are in the pub, drinking: I can see them from my windows. Others are watching box sets at home. Their lives are continuing.
Human rights, as an inalienable feature of human experience, has become a subject of critique once again. People don't ever grow up. They just figure out ways to keep their head down whilst making noise.
The Right's activism was, unfortunately and for too long, comprised almost entirely of self defense from maniacs. Everything Antifa throws or sprays or jabs at Berkeley will be countered with some reflective agent and a maming agent, which will certainly escalate every conflict.
Hundreds of peaceful demonstrators carrying signs that read "Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech" had been protesting for hours before the event.
