The Reply Someone Doesn’t Want You To See

Our white con-servative buddy Darrell has been stewing lately. For reference, I’m going to post his diatribe of anger, resentment and hate.

Of course my reply will never see the light of day at his blog. And I won’t bore the reader with my broader reply to the nasty tone of his piece.

I’m just going to break down and respond to the first paragraph to underscore the dense concentration of inaccuracy and dishonesty in this angry and reactionary flow of effluent.

~~~~~~~~~~~

 The Video Chairman Nadler Doesn't Want You to See!

New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of course, has claimed that the protests throughout our nation are generally peaceful and it is a "myth" to characterize them otherwise.  Of course, this "gentleman" also previously denied the existence of the fascist group Antifa. This blatant lie regarding the "peaceful protests" is further promulgated to the ignorant public by socialist Democrats in the main stream media.  They want you to believe that any violence being done is by police on peaceful protesters simply exercising their constitutional rights. 

Nowhere does the U.S. Constitution or common decency allow arson, physical attacks, looting, running over people with vehicles, and the destruction of public and private property.  That should be obvious, but I know real civics is no longer taught in school these days so I figured I'd address this as a public service announcement.

I think that the brave law enforcement officers that are trying to protect people and property have been exceedingly patient and very measured in their responses to the horrific violence perpetrated against them and public/private property. 

This small but very vocal minority of mainly snot-nosed white millenial rioters has been allowed to go on for way too long.  The vast majority of silent Americans will eventually stand up and do something about it.  I pray that this includes capturing the House, Senate, and Presidency in less than 100 days.

This inexcusable rioting should now be met with all necessary force, including reciprocal lethal force as required, to shut it down in Portland, Seattle, and wherever else it occurs.  When industrial fireworks are launched at property with people inside and the doors are blocked intentionally by rioters like what has been done at the Mark Hatfield federal courthouse in Portland, this alone amounts to lethal force on the rioters behalf.  This is not protesting and if you don't know the difference between that and rioting, then you are part of the problem.

In related news, Somalia, Afghanistan and Venezuela have issued travel warnings for the former United States.

~~~~~~~~~

I don’t know about you, but I need a shower after wading through all that crap.

I also have to wonder if cons can’t tell the difference between cops choking, clubbing, gassing and assaulting non-violent protesters from actually serving justice.

I’m sick of the Right framing all protesters as violent. Protesters protest. Vandals vandalize. Almost everyone denounces the vandalism. Not that the radical Right allows this truth in their bubble. Their vision is clouded by hate and anger.

You don't hear a damn peep of condemnation or even recognition, of the fact Trump-supporting thugs and white nationalists have instigated vandalism to escalate tensions.

First, the title: “The Video Chairman Nadler Doesn't Want You to See!”

Why on Earth would Mr. Nadler WANT anyone to see a dishonestly edited propaganda video sponsored by House Republicans?

Obviously the highly edited video with missing context was a big hit with Darrell.

Now we’ll examine the opening paragraph.

“(Nadler)...the protests throughout our nation are generally peaceful and it is a "myth" to characterize them otherwise.”

True. The great majority of protests and protesters, were peaceful. Nobody denies the vandalism.

“(Nadler)...denied the existence of the fascist group Antifa.” 

Correct. There is no such thing as the “fascist group Antifa”.

The fact is, “Antifa” stands for Anti-Fascist. They have no leader, no organization, and no agenda, apart from opposing fascist/racist hate groups like the Proud Boys, 3%’ers, neo-Nazis, the Klan, and other white nationalist Trump supporters.

“This blatant lie regarding the "peaceful protests" is further promulgated to the ignorant public by socialist Democrats in the main stream media.”

Utterly false, with an abundance of evidence showing literally hundreds of peaceful protests around the country. And unnamed “socialist Democrats” is a meaningless claim or outright lie. Unless he is talking about AOC, he’s just proving his ignorance of the fact the Democratic Party has almost as any corporate donors and string pullers and the Republicans.

“They (mainstream media) want you to believe that any violence being done is by police on peaceful protesters simply exercising their constitutional rights.”

No mainstream news organization denies the vandalism. Again, there is an abundance of evidence showing police gassing, clubbing, and shooting peaceful protesters with rubber bullets, sending people to hospitals. There is no evidence news media “want you to believe” anything but what is happening. Right wing media, Trump, and Republicans on mainstream media, and our own Darrell, are the ones promoting lies like these.

There.

We have established the tone and nature required to support the Republican propaganda video that Rep. Nadler cares not to see.

Since it takes longer to debunk lies and misleading, demonizing words than to state them, I’ll conclude with Darrell’s prayer mission:

“The vast majority of silent Americans will eventually stand up and do something about it.  I pray that this includes capturing the House, Senate, and Presidency in less than 100 days.”

I have to note the reference to Nixon’s “silent majority”. Trump’s oldest and closest friend and advisor Roger Stone has a tattoo of Nixon on his back. If that alone isn’t enough to shout, “I am a racist!”, then maybe the photo of him flashing the white power hand sign with Proud Boys makes it “perfectly clear”.

Darrell has chosen to disregard that overt racism. Or he condones it. Neither reveals an active conscience.

I won’t join in Darrell’s prayers to keep racists in the White House, or in the Senate, or in the House of Representatives.

Most Americans have determined Trump is a racist and pathological liar. Qualified psychologist and niece Dr. Mary Trump understands he is a sociopath.

I pray the sane and compassionate people of America overturn the Senate, retain the House, and boot the sociopaths, white nationalists and racists out of the White House.


For those curious about my full reply, it will be in the comment thread...here, not over at Darrell's blog, naturally.

I’m going to respond to this diatribe of anger, resentment and hate. I don’t expect anyone but the blog host to read this. (I may have to post the diatribe and my response at my blog.)

I’m sick of the Right framing all protesters as violent. Protesters protest. Vandals vandalize. Almost everyone denounces the vandalism. Not that the radical Right allows this truth in their bubble. Their vision is clouded by hate and anger.

White nationalist sites urged their groups to go to Minneapolis to agitate crowds and initiate destruction

Remember "Umbrella Man" smashing the Autozone windows in Minneapolis? He's a white nationalist Trump supporter.

Police: 'Umbrella Man' was a white supremacist trying to incite George Floyd rioting

What kind of person could condone peaceful protesters getting gassed and assaulted by thugs in uniform, just so Trump could hold a Bible for a campaign stunt? A “real Christian” ya got there. If it was up to Darrell, we’d never know of a cop using a shield for an offensive weapon against a defenseless cameraman in that attack on our Constitutional rights. Such is their hate for journalists and journalism.

We all know damn well if Obama ordered that attack on people exercising their First Amendment rights, the Right would howl at the moon, screaming, “Socialism!”. Well, that’s what they do anyway.

I’m sick of the radical Right blaming only BLM for the destruction. Trump supporters, police, and Right wing extremists have been among those committing violence . And it takes a lot of willful ignorance to ignore the countless acts of brutality by cops on peaceful demonstrators.

A peaceful Navy vet tried to talk to them, and they clubbed him, and pepper sprayed his face from two feet away.

Another peaceful elderly mad was shoved to the pavement by thugs in blue. The thugs in blue walked right past the man as his skull was bleeding onto pavement.

But BLM are the “thugs”. Only a racist would say this in light of all the thuggish behavior of police.

The number of vicious assaults by police on peaceful demonstrators will never be known.

The white nationalists and the authoritarian radical Right want to designate antifa a terrorist organization. They are neither terrorists nor an organization, but who lets facts get in the way of hate?

Antifa has killed NOBODY. Right wing extremists have killed hundreds of Americans, but hey, they vote Republican and love Trump, so they are ignored. Instead they have "leftists" to blame, and nobody else.

I'm sick of duped Americans, racists, white nationalists, and neo-nazis saying BLM are racists and antifa are "fascists". BLM stands for Black Lives Matter. Antifa stands for "ANTI-Fascist".

Dave Dubya said...

These are the facts they can't accept, so they are met with hateful lies. Here’s another fact.

The racist hate group Proud Boys have assaulted antifa. That’s right. Fascists attacked the anti-fascists.

“Two members of the far-right group the Proud Boys were each sentenced to four years in prison and five years post-release supervision on Tuesday for their involvement in a violent 2018 clash with anti-fascist protesters in New York City, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said.”

Who really "hates America" , or rather, who hates Americans, here?

Racists are the real fascists, in case anyone here is so ignorant to not understand that. In fact Hitler hated the same people the Trumpist radical American Right hates. Minorities, educators, socialists, scientists, and journalists are all declared "enemies of the people" for disagreeing with the vain hateful leader.

I wonder if Darrell will ever admit to the fact Trump's oldest friend and advisor Roger Stone was photographed flashing the white power hand signal with some Proud Boys?

I wouldn't expect an admission that the Trump Cartel is full of racists, including their birther Dear Leader. I dare, but don’t expect, Mr. “Not real racism” to address this fact.

And hell yes, Trump is evil. What kind of values must one have to think he's not? He fuels racism, hate, anger, division, and ignorance.

He's a racist, sex predator, likely a rapist, pathological liar, narcissistic criminal, and sociopath. His dereliction of duty is racking up the death toll from covid.

Cons say he's doing a "heckuva job". Or, “Overall, those fruits are good”(Darrell). 150,000 dead Americans would tell a different story. Victims of the racist mass murderer in El Paso would tell a different story. George Floyd would tell another different story.

What’s the point to mention all these facts when someone’s beliefs can’t accommodate the facts? Anger and hate dominate his viewpoint. That is an indoctrinated, conditioned response to those he hates. Facts be damned.

As a rational person, I understand the utter futility of debating a person who argues only from his bias, anger, resentments, and other negative emotions.

But I'm still sick of the lies, smears and hate.

To Dave Dubya,

‘You’re Welcome To Say Something Negative About Antifa Right Now’…

Dave Dubya said...

OK, Anonymous, just for you, since this will be your last comment.

"Antifa is mean. They annoy racists, white nationalists, Nazis, Klansmen, 3%ers, Republicans, Proud Boys, Roger Stone, and Trump."

If the best you can do is parrot a slimy remark cast by Ted Cruz to the back of a departing woman Senator, you really don't want good faith discussion anyway.

Bye, Felicia.

Anonymous said...

Figures, typical, as expected. In the words of your beloved ANTIFA, FUCK YOU.

U.P. Tim said...

I love it, Dave. " Antifa is mean. They annoy racists, white nationalists, Nazis, Klansmen, 3%ers, Republicans, Proud Boys, Roger Stone, and Trump." I was baffled when I heard Antifa was fascists. I must have swung thru Faux News or heard some fool on the radio. I guess the person who said it didn't know what Antifa is or just got his rightwing talking points ass backwards. Great job.

TB3 said...

I'm sure Anon changed minds with their biting commentary and damning argument and reasoning.

Take that Anti-Fascists.

Dave Dubya said...

Tim,
I allowed one more comment from Anonymous since he kindly showed us how annoyed authoritarian Nazis get when someone doesn't follow their command and agree with their hate.

Dave Dubya said...

Speaking of American Nazis, here's a headline that shows just how much they hate voting and democracy:
"Tennessee Justices Say Voters Can’t Request Mail-In Ballots Due To COVID-19 Fears"
And it shows how little regard American Nazis have for their fellow human beings.

Jerry Critter said...

Certainly time off from blogging has not mellowed or improved Darrell’s outlook on democracy and free speech, or the American tradition of civil disobedience and protest. Instead he has added a couple layers of religious zealotry and rightwing cultism. It is kind of sad to see.

Dave Dubya said...

Jerry,
Darrell exemplifies conservatism's descent into Trumpism.
The Right has long exhibited racist and authoritarian views and behavior.
Trump has drawn this out, revealing what we've known all along.
A former Republican agrees:


The Republican Party Is Racist and Soulless. Just Ask This Veteran GOP Strategist.

"Stuart Stevens says he now realizes the hatred and bigotry of Trumpism were always at the heart of the GOP."

Dave Dubya said...

TB3,
Poor Anonymous. Even his broad wisdom and deep compassion failed to stir us from our anti-fascist sentiments. But, hey, he tried to do the decent thing.

I'm afraid there is little hope for us, apart from the faint prospect that Anonymous and his ilk would be generous enough to lock us up in nicely appointed concentration camps, instead of having us shot on sight.
