Classicist historian Victor Davis Hanson:
“Historically, the tips of the spears of cultural revolutions are accustomed to comfort. But they grow angry when they realize that they will never become securely comfortable….
“The woke but godless, the arrogant but ignorant, the violent but physically unimpressive, the degreed but poorly educated, the broke but acquisitive, the ambitious but stalled — these are history’s ingredients of riot and revolution.”
Which is why they’ll likely go on rioting in Pedo Joe’s high-tax, big government regulations economy, and why they’re likely to stop if/when the Trump low tax reduced-regulation capitalist economy gets going again.
UPDATE: Meanwhile AG Barr says the FBI has arrested 150 rioters and has 500 ongoing investigations into the riot instigators. Yes, only 150. And Bull Durham’s probe of the Deep State also is coming up a dud.
Truly, the Left can’t control our president, as Tucker demonstrates, and it remains to be seen if they can beat him in November, but meanwhile, what a wasteland, as someone once called broadcast television. Is cable worse? Can these whiners be eased out for ones more objective or are we doomed to see the invective spread? Meanwhile, we have The Donald.
How appropriate, on Independence Day, for the flyover of our warbirds. This time in the northeast, where the Revolution largely took place, but we got a few WW2 vintage warbirds if you were up at 8 a.m. Otherwise you could watch the replay on your phone.
I’m sure the pacifists greet these displays with disquiet. So does this old infantryman, knowing Trump hasn’t produced a new war yet nor does he aspire to, but thinking ahead, to some martial Dimocrat or Rino, how disquieting indeed could these bellicose displays become.
Would it be any better to see a few birds without bombs, say DC-10s and Boeing 747s, other than Air Force One?
But trying to stop the riots, and burning. and looting is harder when local and state Dimocrat-directed authorities won’t do their jobs. Give it a listen.
Trump’s Game Plan:
1 Identify himself with law + order
2 Avoid using federal force that can turn into Kent State 2 (the Dem dream)
3 Use the DOJ to prosecute & deter the radicals who were happy to riot knowing Dem prosecutors would give them a pass
4 Let them overstep
Plausible if the mercurial Trump can hold to a plan.
I hope the Muslims aren’t running it like the ones in Paris. But Antifa, nihilistic young trust-fund babies, could be worse. Two of the three arrested in Austin for looting were women, one sullen in her mug shot, the other bubbly.
They don’t really want territory. They want a revolution. Dislodging them will mean killing some of them. Since tear gas has stupidly been banned.
UPDATE: Da Mayor says it’s a nice place while the police chief says extortion, rapes and robberies are going on.
